Quiet & Private

Pros:

• 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.

Cons:

• 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.

First to Review
One of our favorites in central Texas!

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!

Day Pass

Very clean restrooms and camp sites, nice trails, trails not very difficult. Perfect for a day trip from San Antonio, will be back.

Nice little place to go fishing

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

Beautiful park with great amenities

This park is on the Colorado River and the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Large, level sites with full hookups. Two large dog parks and walking trails by the pretty river. A great Mexican restaurant is within walking distance from the park.

Great camping large lake, good location - July 2020

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.

Good site with plenty of trees

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.

Large sites with lots of shade

This is a great park with lots of trees and some really nice sites. Location is great and staff is friendly and helpful.

Comfortable Campsites

Enjoyed a two night stay during COVID era. Many parks closed, believe this state park had restrictions on how many campers could stay overnight. We reserved 2 night online, and arrived just as the friendly ranger was closing for the day. Good location; easy to find off of freeway. Wooded RV sites with paved pads. Several areas were closed. Dam area under construction. Overall, a very relaxing, pleasant experience. Very quiet. Boat rentals appeared to be closed, and small lake looked a tad stagnant and overgrown with aquatic plants. Wouldn’t plan on fishing in “stocked lake.” No collecting firewood; charcoal fires only within ring. Comical amount of paperwork stuck by rangers/park hosts to our van the first morning.

Great Park

Love this park because of the location. It is clean and spacious with nice bathrooms/showers. Highly recommend.
