We had a confirmed reservation for a back-in site for 1 mo. @ $480/m0. as stated on the RV park website and reconfirmed on a recorded line one week before arrival. The office sign directed us to a tight circle in front of the owner's mansion which required us to unhitch and backup. There was no one to check us in even though we arrived during stated staffed office hours. No one was home nor manning checkin. The groundskeeper, via phone, directed us to park in a pull thru vs. our reserved back-in because "the previous person in your reserved site decided to stay longer". Hours later, after we had hooked up and unpacked, the office person finally showed up and told us we would need to pay $200 a wk. pull thru price (vs. confirmed $480/m0.) and move into a lesser-priced backin, if and when one opened up, and at the park's convenience. This is the 1st time ever that I arrived at an RV park with confirmed reservations only to be told that the previous tenants got to keep our confirmed site. We were overrun with ants in our pull thru; all ant types. We got ant trails in our RV, for the first time ever in our RVing history, and bites on our skin from fire ant types. The grounds person ran his large mower fast and right up to the sides of our motorhome spewing stones and debris against our RV. Our site was a few feet from the 71 highway and large truck noise, 24/7, meaning we had to have our AC and fan running 24/7. Bastrop RV Park is not an RV park at all but a trailer park for long-term residents. No picnic tables, no grills, no fire pits, no Internet, no TV. If you want TV, you need to drive 35 miles each way to Austin and setup an account for a cable box thru Spectrum with limited channels; then drive back and forth to return cable boxes. The bathrooms were dark and dank. We won't stay at this park again. - Dirt Biker

We love this park. Clean, lake, boating, fishing, bike riding and hiking. The town has everything restaurants, health care, Walmart, lowes, etc. 40 minutes away from Austin. Easy to get your camper in and out. Also shelters on the water. - Erby

We stayed here while visiting Austin. The park is OK. Mostly has seasonal and full time residents. Close to the highway so there was some highway noise. WiFi was not available at all sites. Park was OK for a stop over night but there are nicer places. - Jdawg

Bastrop is slowly recovering from the devastating fires of a few years ago. I stayed a couple of nights in a pull through site at Piney Hill and enjoyed my stay. The sites there are nice sized, but leveling can be a problem. Also not a whole lot of shade. I didn't use the camp bathrooms or golf course, so don't know their conditions. It was hot as is to be expected in August. The park has a nice swimming pool and gift shop. Yes, i'll stay again when possible. - Texas Jim

With reservations made in early December 2017, we camped under the tall pines in the COPPERAS CREEK campground of Bastrop State Park on a mid-March Friday and Saturday night in a full hook up site. Most of the full hook up sites were utilized by tents. Most trees between the Park and Texas Highway 71 were destroyed by the 2011 fire, so the highway noise and street light pollution from Texas Highway 71 was HORRIBLE! As we sat around our campfire, we could hardly conduct a normal level conversation! Definitely NO peace and quiet here, so light sleepers be warned! Restroom/bath house are fairly new construction with air conditioning. Check-in ranger was very friendly and helpful. We saw regular patrols of the ranger every hour or two throughout Copperas Creek campground. Great Saturday morning hike a volunteer naturalist, which took us thru the fire raged area of the park. Very informative and interesting info was provided on the fire and the rebirth and restoration, which will take a life time. This park has a swimming pool (which was closed during our visit) with no lake or lake access. I'm rating this TERRIBLE as I don't enjoy camping where I can see street lights and hear highway traffic at all hours of the day and night.
My recommendation is camper awareness...just know that there is no peace and quiet due to traffic noise. It will take the trees about 50 years or so to grow and form a noise barrier. - napunani

Being a state park, it was a lot more quiet than other RV park options in Bastrop although we could hear and see route 71. I liked the 33.3 meter pool and swam almost daily. There are thousands of huge dead trees laying around from the great 2011 fire (rotting trees; great snake environment). I saw a coral snake close to our site and lots of rabbits. The location is good, less than 2 miles from historic downtown Bastrop. You can stay in the park for a maximum of 14 nights per visit. Visitors would have to pay the $5 park entry fee. There are nice walking trails however I picked up poison ivy or oak or sumac. Our site contained lots of old, little pieces of trash like bottle caps, scraps of paper, tinfoil, paper towels, plastic, etc. I saw that the park workers attempt to clean up the leftover big trash but the little trash is left to make the sites look unnatural. The major problem is ANTS, ANTS, ANTS! We had various types of ants, some biting. We went through three cans of spray and 8 traps and our motorhome is infested. I would wake up in the morning to ant swarms and trails from back to front of our motorhome inside and in our storage compartments. Having to use so much ant treatment was unpleasant for us and our cat. My skin is riddled with bites. Our asphalt site was very not level and we spent two days repositioning and driving up onto blocks to try to get level. Sewer was uphill; makes removing the black hose challenging. We noticed another motorhome fail at leveling who ended up leaving the park (I wonder if they got their non-refundable $25 deposit back). I went to the park office to find out if they had a chart, pictures or any information about animals and poisonous plants prevalent specifically in Bastrop State Park; the park office had zero specific information about known natural hazards. The park does sell general books about plants and animals but nothing specific to the park. No cable nor wifi. We won't stay here again in the summer as per ants. - Dirt Biker

We love this park. The owner were very friendly and helpful. Our two dogs love the squirrels in the doggie park. The doggie park was shaded and very well maintained. The sites were all concreted and roads paved. They had a subdivision located in the back which provided a safe place to ride our bikes. Will definite come back in the future. - sherry and ron

This is a really nice place to stay. We have camped at a lot of RV parks, but this is always our pick to stay because of the cleanliness, quiet, amenities, and really great owners. The owners are so very helpful with any need that you may have and on top of that they are great folks. The park's location is close to a lot of different kinds of stores, fast food, good restaurants, and just a great to stay. If you get a chance to stay here, please do not hesitate. - Wdwellbo

Stayed one night. Easy access in and out next to SH 71 on Colorado River. Friendly staff. Park roads and sites paved with concrete patio area. Pull through sites are very long because they also accommodate two back to back RV's. As a pull-through there was more than enough room for our class c and vehicle. Our site was sunny; however, some sites have shade from decent sized trees. Grounds were clean, mowed and trimmed. Dog park was shady and grassy. Didn't use pool, showers, etc. since we stayed only one night. Wifi okay. Yes, there is highway noise because of it's location but very nice KOA close to many restaurants and shopping and fuel. - DMR2011

This place was a concrete jungle. I am sorry I picked this place. Lots of full time residents but very quiet. The water & electric were good. Not very level and had to put 2 blocks on one side to level us out. Parking was strange - had a small place next to trailer lot to park. It was so hot - Texas has been hitting the 100s for the past few weeks and this place just radiated heat. I found a small wooded area next door to walk the dogs which let me out at a church with woods behind it. - Kerch Family

First the good things, making a reservation and check in the folks were very nice. Power, water pressure and sewer were all good. Sites are all concrete however ours was not very level.
We requested a pull through as we were towing a vehicle. Was told at check in that once parked I would have to disconnect the toad since their pull through's are actually two back ins and they may have to rent the spot behind us. One of the reasons I like pull through sites is the option to leave the car hooked up or to be able to get it all hooked up the night before. Was told I would need to rent two sites if I wanted a true pull through.
Sites are very close together, no picnic tables and not enough room between the units to put one. Water hook ups are below ground and ours was flooded so you had to reach down into a pail of water to hook up the water hose. Our site had a small willow tree planted so close that it rubbed against the side of the coach and made it difficult to get to the back of the MH or in the basement compartments.
The grass has not been cut and needs it badly. Lots of full timers with older rigs with junk piled around their sites.
Noise level from the road and in the park is very loud and being so close to your neighbor you hear everything going on.
Last complaint is that there is no place to walk the dog except up and down the concrete drives.
Passport America discount is not the usual 50% off. We stayed here for 3 nights and we won't be back. - Razin Kane

We stayed at North Shore Park for two weeks, changing sites mid-stay. The camp host was not there when we arrived & office was only open Thursday through Sunday, which I assume is winter hours. However, we did not know that before we arrived and had to figure things out on our own. (The telephone number provided when making a reservation is for the South Park campground.) The 50 amp wasn't working on our pedestal and we had to report it at South Park but it was eventually fixed. The sites were not level and I now understand the reviews that said this park is good for practicing. - We did manage to find a somewhat level section of the site. This is a small campground and was very quiet when we were there. The day rate I listed includes the day use fee that is in addition to the reservation charge. - lce3

The RV park is very well kept with a very friendly host who is always around if you need anything The day park & facilities, adjoined to the Camping section is another story. I heard a commotion coming from the women's bathroom during an evening walk & there was a whole faimily in there with suitcases and using the facilities. - Texan58

Found this park to be very clean & well maintained.
The hosts keep the trash cans emptied. It would be nice if they would police each site as the campers leave to make sure the site is left clean. - Texan58

Park is rustic with lots of treesand chickens in park but they stay in roost until after 8 am. The rate is very reasonable and the friendly park host/owner only charged me for three days even though I was there for four nights. I would not consider this park a good location for a large RVs (ours is 36') as the available sites are not level. I found a site near the front of the park that was level enough to use my jacks but I barely fit. At this site the 50 amp power plug was so close to the ground that I could barely bend the cord enough to get connected. The road to the park is narrow and there are two rough railroad crossings to go over. And, yes, train traffic was an issue but the trains in the night seemed to mute their horns. Do not take the shorter route to the park as the road goes through a single lane, low water crossing that is very rough and steep - there were many scrape marks in the pavement where trailer hitches, etc. have hit. - sccatech

We camped here on a Friday and Saturday night in our travel trailer by making reservations 131 days prior to arriving. Our FHU site was nice and very private as it was surrounded by heavy brush. We were delighted to see that our campsite BBQ grill and fire pit was completely cleared of any ash or debris. Frequently barking dogs kept this from being a quiet campground. Basically the reason for this *POOR* rating is the shower/toilet situation. This campground has a total of 6 shower/toilet units where there is a sink, shower and toilet behind a locked door. Units were occupied by users for over an hour showering, creating a looooong wait for others who simply wanted to use a toilet. Great design of units, but 6 is totally inadequate for this size campground, especially when it is filled to capacity. I've seen cleaner restroom/shower facilities. Three camp hosts on site here! LCRA staff will deliver to your campsite $4 bundle of firewood. There is a $6 on-line reservation fee + day user fees of $5/pp for each day in campsite + the nightly $30 campsite fee. There are various discounts offered for the day user fees. - napunani

Not to be confused with nearby Bastrop State Park, this park is run by LCRA and the lake is part of the cooling process for a nearby electric plant. Pineywoods, great trails, kayaking and fishing on the lake. And ice cream novelties and Kuerig machine in the office. - mac2school

This was our 1st time staying here. We stayed in a 37 ft fifth wheel. The spaces are private (except for the shared sites). There were a lot of staff around the park, which may be the reason it was well maintained. Many areas of the lake were more natural. The beach was just more of a sand box, I assume not to get washed away, but my son still loved playing in the sand. The park was quite and very relaxing. My whole family had a great time and we will be returning. Please note, there is a $5 per day fee for each adult. - ezgoin01110

In transit so stayed only one night. Nice level site, we did not need to disconnect our tow vehicle. Cash or check for payment, credit cards accepted for an additional charge. We were happy with our campsite and the campground in general. Will definitely come back some time in the future. Easy access from 77. My rating is based on my own bias of looking for easy access with a level site. - Patricia Sterkowitz

This is the most decrepit park that I have stayed in since I have been traveling in a motorhome! This was probably a nice park way back when, but there has not been any maintenance in years. The facility is filled with rundown trailers with "stuff" all around them and weeds growing under. Trash was never picked up while we were there and the bins were running over! It did have FHU so that was a plus. The road leading in is full of potholes. No checks or credit cards, cash only! We had to stay there as we had a maintenance problem that was resolved on Saturday. I would not recommend this park to anyone! - oniedu

We did not stay here. I checked out the park two weeks before the Austin F1 race. At that time the gravel road into the park looked like a war zone (some of the potholes appeared to be a foot deep) and I was afraid that it would twist my coach's chassis. The price quoted me seems high for the condition of the park; it was basically a pasture with gravel roads. The sites were large and quite spacious. The park is close to the highway, but there did not seem to be much traffic on the road. - sccatech

Nice, quiet new RV park. Cows next door to RV park, made me feel like I was back in time to my childhood on the farm. Gravel roads and spacious sites. Large clean bathrooms. Large laundry room. Game room with pool table and arcade game machines. Dog park and good WiFi available. Dump station also available. The staff is very nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We stayed for 6 months. Monthly rate was $350 + electric. 10 miles from Bastrop. Just 30-45 min to Austin; near lake and state park. - LaneyC RN

This is a jewel of a park. The "big sister", Bastrop SP, is just NE of Buescher and easy to go to with the park road but it was packed. Buescher is nice and quiet and a lovely park. If you want a quiet place, this is it. The rangers are great. The sites are small, however. No problem with our 18 foot. There are a few longer but bigger rigs could get into the smaller ones. They just need to be careful and know how to back in. They have overflow parking to park your vehicle if there is not enough room. There are no pull through sites so be aware if you have trouble backing up your rig. Lots of trees but that is what makes it so nice. The lake is nice and next time we will fish. They have nice trails and we want to go back when it is cooler so we and the dogs can navigate them easier. - Cirrus

Beautiful old CCC state park with small fishing lake. The Cozy Circle area is the only loop that will accommodate 30+ foot RV's. Many of the sites have the picnic table opposite of door side. Many sites have good privacy. Heavily wooded, we could not extend awning fully. Dump station near Cozy Circle has tight turning radius. Not a problem but be aware. We would stay here again. - drfife

This is a gem of a state park. While Bastrop State Park is connected to Buescher on interior roads, this park was not affected by the big fire and is still green and lush. It is a blast to road ride the connecting 11 mile paved streets in-between the parks, but know that the hills are very challenging and ideal for training. We enjoyed the beautiful hiking trails that are well marked and shaded. Fishing is free in all Texas State Parks and this lake is well stocked with large-mouthed bass, catfish and trout. The bathrooms are spotless and offer free, hot water showers for campers. The playground is large and wide open and all of the rangers and park staff were friendly and helpful throughout our 14-day stay. This park is just 2 miles up the road from Rocky Hill Ranch, a well known mountain bike park that offers epic cycling opportunities! About 4 miles from downtown Smithville, this park is private, clean and very beautiful. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and we camped here with 2 dogs. In the next several months, all of the hiking trails in Buescher State Park will be open for mountain biking! The check-in office is lovely and many of the out buildings were built by the CCC in the 1930's and offer great historical significance. - RVLife4us
