Another Tripadvisor said it best: “it’s not the park’s fault.” The CCC structures were saved and there are patches of towering pines which offer a reminder of how majestic this park once was, but it is impossible to look beyond the destruction.
A glimmer of hope - the small pine saplings planted by caring volunteers and park staff. This park will be great again, but not for many decades. It does make me proud to see families still enjoying the park, helping to keep it going, doing their part to revive. Certainly don’t hesitate visiting Bastrop SP, but understand it’s in rehab.
