Site are clear well maintained, but very close together, no cable even though they advertised it. Very good free Wifi. Interior road are tight. Traffic to and from the park terrible. - Nevadadon

Very nice park on the south side of Austin. Full hookups, but no cable. Wifi is good. There are trees, so you may or may not get satellite, but local stains are available with an antenna. Rate is based on Passport America. When I arrived I found out the third night, a Thursday, was going to be $70 because it was motorcycle weekend. No mention of it when I made the reservation. Be sure to check rates, they have lots of special weekends that are more expensive. Would definitely recommend the park. - Sally Chew

First off, the park is clean and beautiful. It's perfectly located near Austin and we enjoyed our stay. There were a few issues that prevented me from giving it a "10".
1) The park rate is $20, but each non-Texas resident who doesn't have a park pass pays an extra $6 per stay. That adds up.
2) The visitor center was closed for repairs.
3) The entrance store was being worked on, so most of that was closed too. We couldn't even buy a fire starter there.
4) Part of the park was flooded out and we were not able to see some things we wanted to see.
5) Our site was not very level at all. Many were, but not ours.
Oh, +1 for the nice programs they have. We liked the full moon hike we did. - The Bees

We had 30 amp service and water. Like many state parks, we did not have sewer or cable, but for $20 it is still a good value. There are nice hiking trails/ Onion Creek and the falls are pretty and the park is well maintained. The only hidden cost is if you do not have a season pass then there is a $6 per day per person usage charge so if you are just staying a few days then the net cost is a little higher than the $20 advertised rate. If you are spending much time in Texas State Parks then the best idea is to buy a Season Pass. - wildcat77

Spots were spacious. We had a nice view of the lake from our spot. We were there when it was fairly empty so had our pick of spots. A lot were for smaller campers, but they easily fit big rigs too. The only thing we noticed was that some of the spots were sloped, so it might be kind of tough to level it out. We didn't walk to the waterfalls, but understand there are some nice hikes around. They also had wifi by the guard house, which is unusual a state park, but it seems to be usual for Texas state parks. There were picnic tables and fire pits. While there wasn't a walk down to the lake, the road to get there was close and you could fish from it. There is a daily park fee. We ended up buying a yearly pass, which cost us less in the long run. - dorcol

This is a well maintained campground, with very friendly and helpful owners at check in. Interior roads and pads are paved and big rig access is fine. We had a long level and spacious pull through site with picnic table and barbecue and plenty of space for our towed. There is some grass between sites and some lovely shade trees. Highway 71/21 runs along one side of the campground, and it is noisy and not the best view to look at from your RV. Lovely pool with a splash pad. Bathrooms are spacious and spotless and the laundry room is clean and well equipped. Security gates and surveillance cameras add to a secure feeling. WiFi is fair. Pet friendly with a Kamp K9 and dog walk area, doggie bags and disposal station. Walmart and other large stores are in the area. We would stay here again, for us it was fine as a one night stopover, with easy access on and off the highway. - tobyjug

I have only good things to say about this park. We loved being able to park on concrete pads and had a concrete patio. No mud to walk through. The park is imaculate, staff is very helpful and friendly. The only one thing is that the KOA sign is very small and easy to drive past. We give this park a thumbs up!!! - di0215

We have stayed here twice for extended periods for my job as a traveling nurse. Awesome owners, very nice and helpful. Great location on the Colorado River. Lots to see and do. Loved it. - Travler Nurse

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

Stayed at the park for two nights because we have friends there. Road construction in front of campground was a nuisance. We have a motorhome pulling a cargo trailer. The dip from the road into the park was so deep that we dug a trench in the road with the trailer hitch. They are going to open up the frontage road so the going in and out of the campground will be much better while they finish the construction. Wi-Fi was not available for the side of the park we were on. - ob's place

The place is absolutely gorgeous. A real country feel to it. The spots are not paved, but they are level. There are lots of trees and a fishing pond. Barb's miniature horses and donkeys are a real attraction. She's proud to show them. We had a wonderful time and really didn't want to leave. - Catfish.Adam

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. - Tcamper

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. - Camper Ally

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. - Phaeton2

This is a great campground. The only reason I did not give it a ten is because the site we had this time was not suitable for my 35 ft fifth wheel. It was site 37 a pull thru and real tight to make turn into and out of site. Had to ask neighbor to move vehicle when we pulled out. The other pull through (site 33) was worse than ours it got run off from the hill behind it resulting in a lot of dirt and mud in that site. Pick any site other than the pull through's and you will have a great time. All sites were level and grass was .cut,roads to sites were not clearly marked. Getting in and out to main road is very dangerous, tree lined divided highway but that's not the campgrounds fault. - jgard

Lake Bastrop is a medium-sized lake (1.4 sq. miles) built by the Lower Colorado River Authority or LCRA in 1964. The LCRA was formed by the Texas legislature in 1934 to manage water and power for the state, and has several parks like this one at Lake Bastrop with information available on lcra.org and reservable via ReserveAmerica.com. Similar on a state level to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds and facilities, we found this area beautiful, with spacious and well-maintained campsites at the South Shore area of the park arranged in a couple of loops near to the lake (though mostly not with direct lake views). The nicely-landscaped front office was situated at the gate, with a pleasant check-in from a helpful staff lady. Note that the gate to the campsite is closed at around 6pm, so you will need to contact them if you expect a later arrival. Besides the campsites, there are bunkhouse cabins available and a day use area with a somewhat manicured small beach and plentiful picnic areas with trails that lead around the lake. Rest rooms were conveniently located throughout the park, with two showers plus restrooms next to the campsite (not counting yet another set next to the cabins). Each of the two shower plus restroom buildings had four sets of ADA (wheelchair) compatible large, heated, high-ceiling units each with shower, toilet, and sink with soap and metal mirror. The hot water was plentiful and these were cleaned daily, though I did have to "clear" a few fiddleback spiders and small worms, and did see a few webs at the top (standard critters in campground showers). Hosts were visible with at least two set up at the two loops plus another at the day use area, and efficient and diligent in their cleaning operations, if noisy with the gas (diesel?) powered Cushmans (not sure why they all don't use quieter electric, esp. as the LCRA lake generates power - you will see some power lines over the lake). Needs some erosion control but great overall. - dns718

Beautiful park, very private spots, all back-in. Pads are level concrete, but are not very wide. We were parked in the middle of the pad and could just barely get our slideouts out without hitting brush/trees, and we had to step onto dirt from the trailer steps. Nice picnic table. Hookups were at the rear - VERY high water pressure! No problems with electric. Very few sites have sewer, but there is a good dump station. Sites vary greatly in length - check the website for specifics. We were in 26, which allowed us to park our 34 ft trailer and have the truck parked in front with no problem. This site did not allow us to hook up our Dish (too many trees), try 20 if that's important. We did get decent OTA from Austin. Be aware that if you're going east on 21 when you leave, the turn onto 21 will be a bear - it's a divided road with trees in the middle, so no way to see if traffic is coming, and the divided area is about enough for a car - no more. Going west is no problem. The rate includes the reservation fee ($6) and the $5 per day per person fee, payable at the CG. Be aware of snakes - saw a 3 foot one on the road while riding bikes! - nancyj

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

This is about the best RV park in and around Austin. Well manicured, everything is kept clean. Showers are my favorite of any RV park. Like being in a hotel. Really large, private and plenty of space. We've stayed here numerous times, but I haven't reviewed it in a few years. This place is almost a 10, almost. New management since last time I was here. It's now managed by Roberts Resorts. The online map site numbers are incorrect.
Pros: Close to Austin, Wifi strong, Secure, all amenities are kept up, Management is friendly, They sell bags of Ice, Level sites, lots of shade. Cons: The pool...It is beautiful, clear, clean, secure and super-heated. I measured the temperature at 101 degrees. There is a hot tub above the pool with water cascading into the pool. They told us due to the size of the pool it just gets hot during the day. Wrong. We have a pool and hot tub at our house. I've been to Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and live in Texas...the pool they have here is heated. Almost no one used it the entire time we were there. maybe that's what they want. It was a bit of a disappointment. The pool was unusable. Lastly gas grill needs an upgrade, it needs to be trashed and replaced with a something that is not rusted out. Lastly the cable system. Yes the cable is free, but you have to hook up one of their cable boxes, it is free to use, but a bit of a hassle I thought.
Really those cons are small, I rarely use the Gas grills at RV parks but they told us they had one to use, it was dangerous to use. If I was planning on using the a pool in the summer I would not come here. But if a pool doesn't matter to you this place can't be beat. - mikel

Park is very clean. Transients park on very long and level concrete pads. Trash is picked up each morning at your site. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi is excellent. Park is very convenient to downtown Austin. - Rd yacht

Location to Down-Town Austin, University of Texas and their sporting events/buildings are very good. Improvements to the Campground facility itself is being made, I hear new management (?). We did not venture off beyond our campsite, the restroom/shower facilities, office and dog park, therefore I cannot comment on the alleged abundance of full-timers. I will say that this park provided everything we needed and wanted, full hookups, and clean facilities. If our next trip to Austin is based upon University of Texas sports and/or Austin Arts and Entertainment, this will be our first call. Only downside was that it is close to Manor, and not the best side of town. The closest grocery store is a HEB. It should have everything that you would need produce and grocery wise, flip-side is that it is located in a rough side of town. - stlucia

Old park that needs improvements. Only RV site on the lake with hook-ups, but the beach is all rock. Kind of pricey for the shape it is in. - fireball

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

OK for overnight stop. Open field with gravel/dirt roads. We were led to our site. Water & power OK, didn't use sewer for 1 night. Rooftop dish worked, few trees, and Sprint cell & hotspot worked. Several families, few with children, are living there. Quiet. - big greg
