Smaller park but great campgrounds. The sites are a little close to one another without much privacy in between. If you are looking for a more private setting check out Bastrop's neighbor, Buescher State Park.
The description should be updated to include the fact that the Memorial Day 2015 flood broke the dam and the lake is no more. It's a pretty depressing sight. I loved camping in Bastrop as a kid. It's such a different experience now with nearly no forest and no lake.
Deer Run is the best campground in my opinion. Sites 27-30 have no trees at all and a lovely view of RVs, but 27 and 28 are handicap accessible and RIGHT next to the playground (and bathrooms). If you are camping with young children who need supervision, these are great spots since you can sit at camp while they play. Otherwise, aim for sites 32-34 or 37-42 for trees and a more natural view. But you can hear the highway everywhere.
I love this park! Sadly, a couple of years ago fires destroyed a lot of the beautiful trees in the surrounding area, but that didn’t diminish the lovely sights on the trails. The bathrooms were renovated last summer and are now super glamorous! 👌🏼 Tile, A/C, flushing toilets....it’s a welcomed reprieve from the oppressive summer heat and humidity!
