This park is family oriented, the owner has children and are well-behaved. They played with our children most of the time. The sites are very roomy with room for your vehicle and slide-outs. The park is on the Colorado River. You can fish, or even sit and enjoy the view on the deck they have that is nicely done. They have a store located on the premises just in case you run out of something. I would give this park a 10 if it weren't located just off of Hwy 71 and you can hear the traffic, it's not that bad though. The campsites itself are nice and big and it's definitely a kid friendly/family oriented park. They do have a pool, washer/dryer, vending machines. If you have children, don't forget their bikes, the roads are paved and perfect for skating/riding bicycles. We would definitely stay here again. It's VERY clean, I think that's their top priority. The owner and his wife are extremely nice and try to meet your every need. I would recommend this campground to anyone (and I'm pretty picky!) Way to go Bastrop River RV Park, that's what we're talking about!!!

Let me just say that the park itself is ok. This park is suppose to be rated "Best Parks in America", however, I do not understand why they received this. Possibly for the breakfast in the morning, but that's it. We are a family of 5 with kids ranging in ages from 3-14, this campground is next door to a XXX Adult MegaPlex, you can hear at night the big rigs pulling in there and having their trucks on idle...it is located right off of I-35 and the traffic is horrible. Another disappointment was the fact the swimming pool and play ground is 10 feet from I-35 feeder, not to mention feet away from the adult "theatre". The campground is between a car dealership and the mega-plex, and the back of the park backs up against apartments. We left early the next morning. We have a 38 ft. travel trailer and a Ford F-350 and both of them together would not fit in our spot, we had to move the truck to visitor parking. The pool is tiny and is right on the feeder of I-35. I will say that if you do not have children, the place may be right for you. The bathrooms are clean and the staff is very friendly, everything would be fine with this park except the location, that ruins it. I was told that this park is the best Austin had to offer, if that's the case we will not be doing much camping in Austin anymore! Huge disappointment. This is NOT "America's Best Park". It's not kid friendly or family oriented. No fishing, no hiking. Only fun would be shopping in Austin.

We stayed here with our 3 children. The park is an older park, however they are in the renovation process. Once they have renovated, it will be nice. The lake is down, so there's no fishing hardly. The best thing about the park is the swimming pool, it's pretty big and has 2 water slides the kids love. They do serve breakfast and dinner for a cost of $5 - $8. It's pretty good. Once they are finished it will be a great place to stay. The park is very little, miniature golf is so-so. Overall a good place to stay with bored children!
