This was my first visit to Bastrop SP since the big fire. We used to tent camp, but have recently upgrade to a 37 ft 5'er. The park was green due to recent rains, but dead burnt trees still dominate the landscape. We stayed in the Piney Hill campground which is an all pull-thru campground with water, electric and sewer. No cable or WiFi. The sites are all paved. Ours had a pretty good incline that made leveling a challenge. We were in site 22. Our site had a nice covered picnic table, a fire pit and a grill. We camped mid week in April, so the park was pretty empty. The bathrooms have all been rebuilt since the fire, so everything still looks very new. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I recommend Gracie Millers for chicken fried. If you are traveling with a dog, Bastrop has a dog park across the street from the police department on the corner of Grady Tuck Ln and Hospital Dr.

Mixed emotions!!
This park used to be one of our favorites but the big fire in 2011 and the finicky (although usually friendly) staff, including the macho-man police officers sent us packing.

It does not seem like much has changed as far as the nit-picking, and the very young; tough guy park police that are still lurking like they are looking for criminals or a camper with too many tent steaks around their tent.

The park has rebounded nicely from almost total devastation, with improved sites with very nice RV pads and 30/50 service pedestals, and the rebuilt bath houses are exceptional. My only complaint about the actual camp sites are the 2 foot high boulders that line the camping loop roads. Although they are nice looking I guess ....... They are total hazards that you cannot see when backing in larger RV's into the supposedly "Big Rid Friendly" RV sites.

And on this weekend, my campsite in the Coppreas Creek area had weeds that were 2 feet tall just beyond my RV pad. I had to walk through the weeds to get to the fire ring or the picnic table. Seems the endless parade of gawking park vehicles could park occasionally and drag out a weed-eater. Also note the Highway 71 traffic noise is very loud if you are in the Copperas Creek area.

I've always pulled for this park to rebound and I wish them well, I just don't see us frequenting this park very often. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here 2 nights in full hookup pull-through site #24. Site was level, paved, included picnic table and fire ring. The water pressure was good.The park has a swimming pool, playground lots of green space. There was a big fire here in 2011, so lots of burned trees, but new growth as well. There is hiking nearby and historic CCC structures around the park. Park is near restaurants and highways so there is some road noise at night. You have to pay a $5pp daily entrance fee along with the $25 nightly camping fee if you don't have a yearly TX park pass, so be aware of this. TX residents get a discount. We liked this park. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bastrop, TX - Bastrop State Park
We stayed here in April, 2016 for 5 days in the Copperas Creek Loop, site 76. Concrete pads and roads, full hookups 50 amp service in this loop. The park is still recovering from the 2011 and the flood in 2015. A lot of the trails are still closed but the park is open and still amazing. There was slight traffic noise because the fire destroyed the barrier of huge pine trees between the park and the highway. Park road 1C connects Bastrop State Park to Buescher State Park which is also a beautiful Park and did not receive the damage that Bastrop did. It's a beautiful 12 mile scenic drive between the two Parks. Both Parks were well maintained and clean. Huge sites at Bastrop to accommodate the largest rigs. Sites at Beuscher were smaller and did not have sewer connections. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed in Full hook up section, all pull through sites. Some sites will take a bit of work to get the rig level, could be a challenge for some larger rigs. Overall, we like the area and price. Firewood for sale $.50 a log with free kindling was fair. Enjoyed visiting downtown Bastrop and going to La Grange for the Trail of Lights. Restrooms were about the cleanest we've ever seen at any campground/resort. We will return. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is divided into three camping areas; two allow RVs. We stayed in the Copperas Creek Camp area. The site was very nice, level, with water & sewer, the tall trees provided some shade, depending on the site. Most of the sites were deep and could handle a large rig. The facilities were great, recently renovated after the fire. They even had a large washing sink, great if you need to wash something too large for a RV sink. We arrived at the campground around 6 PM on a Friday night and most of the sites were already taken. Arrive early if you want a good selection of sites to choose from. The Piney Hill Area is walking distance to the pool, so if you are planning to use the pool, I suggest camping there instead. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Motorhome.

Park went through fire several years ago and many of the burned dead trees are still standing, They have begun to reforest it. Sites are fairly level some have sewer dumps on site. Filled up quickly while we were there. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Internal roads are paved, sites are not very level (some are better than others) and are spacious, facilities worked well, site was satellite friendly. Staff were very friendly, T-Mobile cell service was OK (3G). The park was quiet. We would stay here again. If you don't have a Texas park pass, add $4 for each person. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Stayed on Piney Hill which has full hookups. Our space was not level, but most were. We did have a shade tree by our site. We did not notice any mice in this camp area. Too bad about the fire. The view is like looking at a field of telephone poles. The Staff was friendly and replanting trees when we were there. Would stay here again.

Been in Bastrop since November 29th of 2013. Mice are relentless at trying to get in the camper. I do not know if the big rigs are having the same issue. You can see mice running all over the camp ground at night. Copperas cove much nicer due to less damage from fire. Also being in the low lying area of the park the wind is less evident. Piney Hill is the pull-through area. Much more fire damage and no shade trees. Sites are very close together so I can hear the conversations of everyone nearby. Very windy on the upper hill making it much colder than when we were down in the low area. Construction workers do not observe the speed limits in the park and you need to watch out for them. Staff has been helpful. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very nice state park with lots of hiking trails, wildlife, swimming, fishing, and even golfing. Most of the famous pine trees were killed in the big fire of 2011, but it is still a nice place to spend some time. There are 35 sites with water and 30A electricity, and 35 sites with water, 30/50A electricity, and sewer. The full hook-up sites are $20 a night. The restrooms in both campgrounds are currently being rebuilt. Portable toilets are available in both campgrounds, and a temporary shower facility is available in the Piney Hill campground. Hopefully the construction will be done soon and brand new facilities will be available. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Camped here with our 5, 3, and 1 year olds. Clean park, well paved roads. Majority of park forest burned in 2011 forest fire, but is slowly recovering. Lots of dead, burned trees still standing, but not detracting from experience. Quality YMCA-run swimming pool on-site with shallow kid areas. Eighteen hole golf course is good. Front 9 is flat, back 9 is rolling and scenic. Good kid playground with equipment, slides and swings. Saw a few whitetail deer in the park. We would return. Plenty of room.

Too bad about the September 2011 fire. Many of the mature trees are burned. Some of the restrooms and showers were too. They seems to be doing a great job getting the park back to its former glory. The park is clean and quiet, surrounded by a golf course (wish I had brought my clubs). We stayed here overnight and had full hookups for $20. We have a Texas State Park pass so we didn't pay the $4 daily entrance fee. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were traveling around Texas and spent the night at Bastrop State Park. The aftermath of the forest fire of Labor Day 2011 was apparent, but hearing the story from the park police who was also a firefighter during the disaster made the park very interesting. Our campsite was 63 and was just right for our 25' RV; although, bigger rigs could not have come into that part of the campground. Our section was the nicest and most of the original trees were still standing. Seedlings were sprouting and nature's recovery was apparent. We enjoyed the hiking trail and the park. Only time will replenish the stately pines that were lost, but the park is worth a stop. Note--shower houses and bathrooms are under construction. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Motorhome.

The extensive fire damage at the park detracts from the scenery but not the RV facilities. Interior roads and sites are paved. Sites follow the contour of the land and some are far from level. AT&T phone and data service worked well in the area. Some shade is available, which may interfere with satellite signal, but over the air TV is available. The price is for full hookups. An additional daily access fee of $4/person is charged unless you have a Texas State Park Pass. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
