Things to Do
Activities include non-motorized boating (no ramp/small lake); fishing in a stocked lake; nature study; hiking, geocaching; interpretive tours and biking. The scenic, 12-mile paved road between Buescher and Bastrop state parks, which is winding and hilly, is ideal for biking but should be used only by experienced cyclists. Approximately six miles between the parks is private land; trespassing on private land and camping between parks is not permitted. The park also includes about eight miles of mountain bike/trail riding through pine trees and cedar elms. Swimming is not currently allowed in the park; Bastrop State Park has a swimming pool open seasonally. Canoe rentals are available. We also loan fishing equipment for use in the park.
In addition to campsites, the park also has screened shelters, air-conditioned cabins, and group sites.
