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.
This is a great park for families. There is all kinds of activities like biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, a playground, kayak/paddle board rentals, etc. The campground is small for RVs, only about 19 sites and there’s a few with full sewer hookups, the rest with water/electric. The sites on the outer loop are spaced out a bit more then the sites on the inner loop. We had some noisy neighbors with loud music but otherwise I would guess it’s a pretty tame park.. highly recommend and we’ll be back!
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!
Nice little place to go fishing at night. The water is too hot seems to be that way all the time. I can't hear when I was a kid and it hasn't changed much since then they did get a new restroom facility that has showers it would be nice if they expanded campsites a little I caught a couple fish I put them on a Stringer but the water was so hot it killed the fish but I will continue to fish here cuz I live so close just wall put them back in the lake after I catch them on a Stringer
We camped here for 3 nights with reservations made 151 days prior to arriving. 19 RV sites in the RV camping loop with sites"inside" the loop fairly close to one another. Outside loop sites had nice distance between sites. No vegetation between sites to shield from neighbors. Park headquarters check-in is in the village of Ottine. There are no security gates. Quiet campground- no road noise. A distant train whistle from time to time. Coyotes howled every night. The only wildlife we saw were squirrels. Narrow roadway from FM 2091 to RV campground. Water had a sulfur smell. The toilet/shower facility was VERY clean. This facility is not only utilized by the 19 campsites but also day users of the trails and CCC pavilion. So a lot of traffic thru this facility, especially on weekends. This speaks volumes of the camp hosts who we saw cleaning frequently. Shady campsites are narrow, fairly level asphalt pads with trees near the edges causing creative parking for those with slide-outs. We were unable to deploy our awning due to the number of close trees. Ice and firewood for sale at the camp host site. Eight different trails available within this park. Longest 1.25 miles. Very good condition. Crushed granite and boardwalks. Beautiful CCC constructed pavilion with a terrific view of the San Marcos River from the back patio. Never saw a park ranger drive through the RV campground during our stay.
Well spaced spots. Fairly level pads with table, fire ring, 30/50 amp electrical, water. We didn't see any covered tables, but all usable spots had concrete pads for tables. Like a lot of east-Texas camping areas, LSSP was also devastated by Hurricane Harvey and is still recovering, but don't let that stop you, but instead level-set your expectations. Sites are well dispersed, but some appear to be no longer in use. In July 2020, there were very few folks in the park, partly, I'm sure due to Covid-19 and well, its July in Texas! Typically, and as expected, gnats were really bad at night, but mosquitos were tolerable. Just be prepared and you'll be fine. Great kayaking and very little motorized boat traffic, but likely due to current situation. Trails are numerous, but not well marked. We didn't see a lot of hog damage on the trails, so maybe the staff has been working on that. Good amount of wildlife Equestrian area looked like it was restored and back-in-business. Will be returning. While the Birch Creek and Nails Creek sections are visible across the lake from each other, there is a long drive (15 minutes in a vehicle around the lake) to get between them, so plan your time accordingly.
We stayed in the Old Hickory loop. Each site had trees surrounding it and they are decently spaced out. The park has trails within it, as well as the Trailway for long hikes and mountain biking. The day use area is nice for swimming in the lake.
