Bastrop - Chemin-a-Haut State Park

14656 State Park Rd.

Chemin-A-Haut State Park is situated on a high bluff overlooking Bayou Bartholomew and is a natural paradise for lovers of unspoiled beauty. This 503-acre site takes its name from the French word meaning "high road," which was the route used by Native Americans many years ago in their seasonal migrations.

Chemin-A-Haut State Park was designed with children in mind. Two playgrounds in the day-use area are a favorite spot of the younger patrons as is the wading pool in the swimming complex. Also, the park's swimming pool is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, so campers and picnickers can refresh themselves on hot summer days. In addition to RV and tent camping, overnight guests can also relax in cabins, some located convenient to the day-use area, while more-secluded units are located on the bayou.

The picnic area includes 35 family sites with grills and tables, five group sites (for up to 24 people), and three shelters. A hard-surfaced trail goes through the picnic area and along the high, scenic banks of Bayou Bartholomew. Rental boats afford visitors an even closer view.

Big Slough Lake, located near the edge of the park, offers an opportunity to fish from the shore. Several varieties of freshwater species can be found there. Take advantage of the beautiful seclusion of this ideal park site.

A very nice place to come and camp for a family get away. Our camp host was Southern friendly and a joy to talk too. The bathhouse is brand new, warm, and in excellent order. They even have washers and dryers, I just hope idiots don't destroy them. The scenery around this place is a great value for learning. However, for some reason, someone let someone else check into our spot (that we paid for well in advance) and they clearly were NOT us. Also, some full hookup sites would be REALLY nice. The asphalt could use some updating also.

Excellent place for a get a way. Family in from out of town and rented two of the small cabins and they are awesome. Sleeps 6 comfortably and very spacious. Highly recommended.
