We stayed here for three nights and we were able to visit Bastrop State park for the day. The water was full of some weeds so fishing was not that great but we rented a camp and enjoyed our stay here.
Had a good time at this park but the camp sites were not setup well for rv camping. We only found 1 site that was a good setup for our rv. Other than that part the hiking trails were great and the lake was fun to kayak on with the kids.
I live about 25 minutes away from this park and have taken my dad fishing here as well as hiked here several times. There are so many trees that it keeps the Texas sun and heat off you pretty dang well.
Bathroom is well kept as well as the park.
Great park w lots to do like fishing, hiking, canoeing, a playscape for the kids, trails and lots of day use areas. We stayed in our rv and the pads was concrete and level w water and electric hookups. The site off the pad was a bit drastic but it was fine. Lots of full grown tress and underbrush so most of the time you don’t see the neighbors. There are restrooms with showers and a dump station. We have gone many times and will be back it’s one of the closest parks for us.
Buescher State Park is about 40 miles outside of Austin and a short drive from Bastrop Texas. The park is great for campers who like to fish. The 25 acre park lake offers some great shoreline and kayak or canoe fishing. You can rent a canoe or bring your own. You can use the boat launch or enter the lake from the Lakeview Campsite. The campsite have flat concrete pads for campers and RVs. The sites have good tree cover and a nice level of privacy which can be rare at state sites. They have all the facilities you need from group recreation facilities to new cabins on the lake. The campground was less than half full in June. They have a tackle loaner site and a small camp store.
I camped here with a large group a few weekends back. I really enjoyed it. I did a little hiking and I cannot wait to go back and do more.
Buesher State park is a great spot to take the family and relax! There is lots to do and it is a pretty good sized Texas park. They have tent, group, and RV sites, along with cabins and screened shelters alongside the lake. You cannot swim in in the lake, but they do have boat and tackle rentals at the park. It makes for a great place to fish with the family.
The park is very shaded with lots of pine trees, but a fire did wipe out a lot of the trees on the Northern side of the park towards Bastrop. So many of the longer trails are not as shaded or are still in the process of repair. I went on a trail that was about 5 miles long and it was very nice. It was moderately challenging, a little muddy, but so much to see. Beautiful wildflowers of ever color were growing and I saw about eight white tail deer. Also a great place to birdwatch and take photography.
The facilities are old, but well maintained and there is a store on site that sales snacks, wood, and souvenirs. The have a nice playground on site for the kids and the campsites are very spacious.
Also if you have the time there is a 12 mile scenic road that connects Buesher State Park with Bastrop State Park that will take you about thirty minutes. It is a twisty, hilly road that has some really great views of fields of wildflowers and tall pines. You can also see where the fire took out part of the forest and is beginning to regrow. Also Bastrop state park is a great place to visit for some challenging hikes!
Great camping park with lots of shade and water
We have stayed here 2 times and loved it both times. Our time in the park was shorter than we would have liked but we cannot wait to go back and explore more. Love the support for the MS150. The rangers were some of the nicest and extremely helpful.
This is a very nice, small, State park. There is a lot to do and it didn't feel crowded at all. The tent camping spots were great! We stayed at a walk in site (water only) and had a great time! Good fishing, hiking, etc.
