Campground Description

In September 2011, Bastrop State Park and the surrounding pine forest were stricken by wildfire that affected 96 percent of the park. However, firefighters were able to save the historic cabins and facilities that were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The park is recovering from the fire, and most trails, campsites and facilities have reopened to the public.

    This park was a strong 4.5 or 5 until the big fire. We canoed and hiked here frequently and enjoyed it immensely, but it just isn't the same now and is rather depressing.

    The greenery and trees are starting to make a comeback, trails are cleared for hiking, and they used the downed wood to build bridges and structures. It's making a return and that is great, and I definitely recommend visiting to support the park and its resurgence.

    That said, I can't give it more than a 3 at this time. If you visit, be sure to take the drive over to Buescher State Park - the road is lovely and Buescher did not sustain fire damage.
