This park is a great option for nature camping very close to all the attractions of Austin. The sites are spacious and they all have electricity and water hookups (some sites have 50 amps, most have 30 amps). All are reservable and very affordable at $24/$20 respectively, with greater discount if you’re a Texas State Parks Pass holder. We are out-of-staters and found great value in the parks pass! Second nights at campgrounds are 50% off and free admission to all state parks.
The sites are very private and spacious and have nearby hiking trails accessible from the sites. There are several camping loops in the park, most of which have easy access to the Onion Creek hike & bike trail. Booking online is straightforward and check-in is virtually contactless.
We spent time hiking the Homestead and Flint Rock trails and really enjoyed the peace and solitude, knowing we were so close to the metropolitan area. A perfect spot for enjoying the city during the day while staying surrounded by nature at night!
I’ve seen some bad reviews of this park and I can’t tell you why I understand there isn’t much to do here but swim fish and relax the sites are full of trees and not to close. Overall we enjoy this park with our 4 and 6 year old. This was our second 3 day visit. Worth the drive from Houston every time.
• Quick check-in
• 176-acre park with 40 campsites on the south shore of Lake Bastrop.
• Level site concrete pad surrounded by crushed granite.
• Aluminum picnic table, lantern pole, BBQ grill and fire pit with cooking grill.
• Cleaned BBQ grill and fire pit upon arrival.
• Very private as the site was surrounded by heavy brush.
• Even though Spring Break and the campground was packed, it was quiet.
• Firewood is available for purchase from Park.
• LCRA $6 on-line reservation fee.
• Long waits for toilet/shower. All are family type facilities with the toilet, sink and shower as one unit behind a lock door, so one showering person ties up a toilet. There are 8“units” for 40 campsites PLUS cabins.
• Toilets/showers could of used more frequent cleaning as they are heavily used.
The river is a beautiful site no doubt. The campgrounds are older and could use a bit of updating. We were close to the river. Was a bit disappointed as when booking through TT website, it said full hook ups when we arrived, only Water and Electric were available. ( reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars }Not a big issue as we were only there for a couple nights and as full-timers, we have a system down pat where our rig could stay off a sewer line for at least 7-10 days. All in all, its a nice place to come and relax, not too much to do if your a family. Clean restrooms and showers.
The camp hosts here were great! Super friendly and very very helpful. The campground was really nice and the views over the lake were beautiful. We stayed in site 61 which was very unlevel. We had to use six blocks on one side and four on the other just to make our front level with our back. Our neighbors had similar issues with leveling out. There are definitely more level spots so just be mindful when booking. Unfortunately, you can’t really tell from the photos on the website.
There is a grocery store less than 10 mins from the entrance and lots of restaurants around as well. The trail around the lake is 26 miles long and can be accessed from just outside the gates. I would recommend walking over the dam. The views are amazing. Would definitely stay again and already scoped out the best spot for our 36’ fifth wheel 😁
Campground very clean. C of E staff very friendly. Not nearly as much lake traffic as Lake Belton or Stillhouse Hollow (both which are near by. Lake is kinda remote from gas, food and such, but would absolutely go there again. Very dog friendly!!!
We live in Austin and this is truly our go to campground recently. Its so well kept, the campground layout is very clever. There's no bad sites! Nice privacy between sites. Some sites are on the lake with a little trail to access the water. There's so much do like hiking, biking, fishing, putt putt golf, kayak, paddle board rentals, etc. The water is very nice and clean. The bathrooms were spotless and are family style meaning you get your own private restroom/shower! There are a few sites with full hookups, the rest were just water/electric. Highly recommend this park!
