Appealing features include spacious pull-thru parking, location on upper bank of Colorado River with extended wood deck view, and friendly check in reception. I would stay again . Millenicom hotspot (Verizon) had poor reception; however, the site's free internet provided worked well. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate includes KOA discount. Super clean, nice people, easy on/off the highway, convenient. Stayed one night, long enough to relax in the pool and do laundry. Yes, there was highway noise but the convenience was worth it. Paved roads, concrete sites - long and level - grass between sites, short walking trail to the Colorado River. Sprint cell worked well, clear satellite signal. Big rig friendly. Entrance is in the front, exit is out the back into a residential neighborhood. Follow the sign posted at the exit. It says no waterfront sites but tents can camp very close to the Colorado River. Would camp here again. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Rate was military rate. Super clean, grass cut, paved spacious sites, scattered trees and very friendly staff. Park is parallel to Interstate 71, so some may be bothered by the traffic noise, but it did not bother us. We were in a almost perfect level site at ten pull through near the park down by the river. We were the only motorhome, all others in the 1/3 or less occupants were 5th wheels, campers, airstreams, etc. We were here for one night on way to Lake Buchanan...quaint historical town with many old buildings and cute shops. This RV park is very close to HEB and Walmart, plus restaurants. It is a stop over. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice campground. We had a site right down on the river, which was nice; deer out grazing in early morning right in front of us. We had our back to the highway, which probably helped, but the highway noise did not bother us. No trash pickup at site, and we only saw one dumpster. We had a minor medical emergency, and there is an excellent 24/7 facility about a mile down the road; it is a branch of St. David's Hospital of Austin. The entrance comes up quickly; if you miss it, you have to go under the highway and make a u-turn through a couple of lights. That was the way we left the park. If you take the exit (which is on a different side from the entrance), to travel east, you have a pretty good slope to go over. After looking at it, we were concerned that we might drag, so we opted to take the first right turn, instead of the second as we left the park, and make the u turn, going around to miss that bump. We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to return. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a great park. We often are willing to pay the price for a KOA when we know the quality we are getting. The owners were extra friendly, and the landscaping staff was constantly at work, even in the extreme heat. The restrooms, showers and laundry room were spotless. The deck next to the river was lovely. It is very near stores and restaurants. We will return. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Great staff. Pull through with tables and close to the river. Bastrop was a great tour for us. Easy in and out for our large rig. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a well-kept park with small shade trees on some sites. You can walk to the end of the park to sit at the river's edge. Wal-Mart, Starbucks, HEB and many stores and food opportunities are within walking distance. Main Street (about a 1 mile walk) to downtown Bastrop offers numerous dining opportunities (try Maxine's for local flair and Ramos for the best frozen margarita). The only negative about this park is the constant road noise as the park is located under the Route 71 bridge. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here because of a previous great experience. This park has now been sold to KOA. We won't be back. More expensive, some of the amenities are gone and there was a site with college age people in four tents right down from us. We paid 45 and another group in our party paid 55? We never got a reason why there cost was different. We had the same type and size of trailer. This is not the same park as when the previous owner had it. We have never been to a KOA and liked it. If you like KOA? Then you will be in heaven. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Very nice park, close to highway 71 but fairly quiet. Everything works well and the folks who run the park are very nice. The laundry is clean and well maintained. We stayed here in for a week and will do so again. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

Bastrop River RV Park is not quite that. Yes, the river is there at the end of the campground, but you cannot really see it, unless you walk around or drive down to that area. Pull throughs have two RV's to one site, so its back to back. Sites are level and have a picnic table and a barbeque, grass between sites. Highway 90 runs along one side of the campground, and it is noisy and not the best view to look at out of your RV. Security gates and surveillance cameras add to a secure feeling. Lovely pool, spa, and sauna. The bathrooms are large and spotless. Walmart and other large stores are in the area, as well as some good local restaurants. Close to old historic Bastrop. We thought it was expensive for what it was; however, we would stay here again. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

Great CG - even though it is right next to highway 290, the noise did not bother us at all. Slab sites with good hook-ups and cable. Nice areas to walk the dog and a really lovely park next to the river. Owner was very helpful and checked us in at 8am even though the office does not open until 9am. Pool is unheated but would be fine for summer. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

Friendly host and very well kept park. Easy to get in and out and to park big rigs. Everything here was squeaky clean and neat. The only drawback is that you really are right next to the highway and it is noisy. It did quiet down at night but you could still hear every car that when by. Lots of folks wintering over here I think. We would stay here again if we had to. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We love this campground. At first we was nervous about staying here because of the reviews. The highway was not near as bad as what some say. The lady at the front desk, who we think is the manager, was very nice. She even told us her site number if we needed anything after hours. She called the camphost and had him show us to our site. He was cutting up with us and made us feel right at home, we even met his wife who works here also. Our campsite was very large and had a grill, table and grass area. All the sites were paved. We did have to pay four dollars for our internet, but it was very fast and good. We didn't go in the pool or hot tub but they looked very clean. They even had an ice machine free of charge. The bath house was the nicest one we have ever seen. Had very clean and large showers. There was a walk way down by the river with chairs to set and relax. One of the chairs did need repair. We did see alot of pets but the campground must enforce clean up because everything was very clean. The one thing I must say is make sure you use the right gates. The lady at the front desk told us which ones to use and we went out the wrong way: there was a big speed bump. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

I'm reviewing this park because I feel that anyone renting a site here should be prepared for a possible irritable owner. I have learned (this is my second experience with difficulty getting my money back) that people graciously "take" my money, but ungraciously give it back. We stayed here and the manager was very very nice and helpful. However, we needed to leave one day early. So we packed up and proceed to the office where we found that the office was not opened until 11 a.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. on Sunday. Although the paper we were given stated that the office was opened at 9 a.m. At any rate, my husband talked to the owner on the phone who wanted to give us a "rain check". But not knowing if we would be coming back, my husband declined and asked to have the day's rate returned to our credit card. We waited while the owner drove over to the office. One problem we had was that the trailer directly behind us was leaking water the entire time we were there. We reported it to the manager who promptly took care of it, but the next day it was leaking again. The water drained under our trailer and our electric cord was lying in the water. Plus when we left, my husband had to stick his hand into that water to open the plug to the sewage. When he stuck his hand into the water and opened the sewage drain, much of the standing water drained into the hole. The owner, let's call him LN for Little Napolean, proceeded to say that any return to our credit card would be a $5 fee, because the credit card company charged him five dollars. My husband said, "you can give me cash instead". LN replied that he never gave cash back with a credit card transaction. Then he proceeded to give my husband back $31 on our credit card. My husband said $41 minus 5 is $36, not $31. LN said, "What, you didn't get a 10 percent discount? You were supposed to get a discount." I don't know what the discount was for, but we knew nothing about it. So for three days, we paid $123.00 instead of $110.70. So instead of us owing him $5 for the credit card fee, he really owed us $7.30 which we didn't get. My husband explained to him that something had come up and we needed to return home. He also mentioned to him the water leak. LN said, "well, I wish you would've told us before now". Which my husband replied, "I did and it was fixed, but it started leaking again". Then LN grabbed the phone and started chewing out the manager. Then LN jumped into his car and drove down to the site to see the leak for himself. When he returned, he got back on the phone and called the manager back and apologized for the way he talked to him, saying in effect, "this guy made it seem like there was a flood down there." By this time, my husband was getting upset, and said, "no I did not tell you that there was a flood. I merely told you that there was a leak. I thought you might like to know because it's costing you money." In addition to the owner's poor behavior, the RV park is located just beneath a major overpass which is quite noisy. It is a pretty site and is near the Colorado river in downtown Bastrop. Getting into the park can be tricky too, especially if you have a long RV as the entrance is at an abrupt angle to the frontage road and the space to park while you register is not very spacious. Also, when we went to use the showers the first night, the temperature inside the bath house was 62 degrees. But we told the manager who promptly raised the temperature for the next day. Overall, I would have been happy to return to this park except for the owner's behavior. We camped at Bastrop / SE Austin / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo
