Overview
More
A Large portion of the Bastrop State Park was destroyed by a devasting fire in September of 2011. The community along with the State and other organizations have been replanting the trees. Although it doesn't possess the same beauty it offers an interesting perspective in how a forest is regrown. There are still a number of areas that were not burned that you can see as well as a number of the Historic buildings. This park is listed in the National Historic Registry. There is RV and tent camping available. Bastrop State Park is located next to Buescher State Park and suffered very little damage. You can see the beauty of the Lost Pines, see what a fire can do to a forest and see the Lost Pines in their toddler stage of growth. Both Bastrop and Buescher State Parks are not far from the North and South shores of Lake Bastrop where you can enjoy a wonderful weekend at the Lake.

This was my first time back after the major fires 6 years ago. Mixed feelings, wonderful to see the new growth and new pines sprouting up to about 6 feet. Painful to see the remaining burnt ghost pine trunks of the parks past. The local...More

Although the park was basically empty, the ranger had us head down to a very tight section of the campground where it took us, literally an hour to try to get into the designated campsite and then worm our way out. Don't think that we...More
