Excellent park with friendly owners and all the amenities we needed. Be watchful as you near the park, you can miss the entry. It is also important to follow the signs as you leave. There are certain turns you must make to go west and different exit streets to go east. This park is located just off a major highway and there is some road noise. The laundry facilities were pristine and you can use your credit card which is nice. There is a playroom attached to the office and our 3 & 5 year old grand-kids were very entertained by the puzzles, books and games. Older children could enjoy the Foosball and pool tables. It was too cold to swim but the pool looked inviting and there is a pavilion that is apparently used for meals etc. and it was impressive. The park sits on the Colorado River and we visited the playground and river on a couple of occasions. In warmer weather it would be inviting. Weeds down by the river were a little intimidating to me but the playground was well maintained and shaded by large trees. - WindRiver

We love this park. The owner were very friendly and helpful. Our two dogs love the squirrels in the doggie park. The doggie park was shaded and very well maintained. The sites were all concreted and roads paved. They had a subdivision located in the back which provided a safe place to ride our bikes. Will definite come back in the future. - sherry and ron

This is a really nice place to stay. We have camped at a lot of RV parks, but this is always our pick to stay because of the cleanliness, quiet, amenities, and really great owners. The owners are so very helpful with any need that you may have and on top of that they are great folks. The park's location is close to a lot of different kinds of stores, fast food, good restaurants, and just a great to stay. If you get a chance to stay here, please do not hesitate. - Wdwellbo

We had a confirmed reservation for a back-in site for 1 mo. @ $480/m0. as stated on the RV park website and reconfirmed on a recorded line one week before arrival. The office sign directed us to a tight circle in front of the owner's mansion which required us to unhitch and backup. There was no one to check us in even though we arrived during stated staffed office hours. No one was home nor manning checkin. The groundskeeper, via phone, directed us to park in a pull thru vs. our reserved back-in because "the previous person in your reserved site decided to stay longer". Hours later, after we had hooked up and unpacked, the office person finally showed up and told us we would need to pay $200 a wk. pull thru price (vs. confirmed $480/m0.) and move into a lesser-priced backin, if and when one opened up, and at the park's convenience. This is the 1st time ever that I arrived at an RV park with confirmed reservations only to be told that the previous tenants got to keep our confirmed site. We were overrun with ants in our pull thru; all ant types. We got ant trails in our RV, for the first time ever in our RVing history, and bites on our skin from fire ant types. The grounds person ran his large mower fast and right up to the sides of our motorhome spewing stones and debris against our RV. Our site was a few feet from the 71 highway and large truck noise, 24/7, meaning we had to have our AC and fan running 24/7. Bastrop RV Park is not an RV park at all but a trailer park for long-term residents. No picnic tables, no grills, no fire pits, no Internet, no TV. If you want TV, you need to drive 35 miles each way to Austin and setup an account for a cable box thru Spectrum with limited channels; then drive back and forth to return cable boxes. The bathrooms were dark and dank. We won't stay at this park again. - Dirt Biker

We love this park. Clean, lake, boating, fishing, bike riding and hiking. The town has everything restaurants, health care, Walmart, lowes, etc. 40 minutes away from Austin. Easy to get your camper in and out. Also shelters on the water. - Erby

We stayed here while visiting Austin. The park is OK. Mostly has seasonal and full time residents. Close to the highway so there was some highway noise. WiFi was not available at all sites. Park was OK for a stop over night but there are nicer places. - Jdawg

What is NOT here: golf course (it has gone back to Mother Nature because the vendor could not operate it profitably), Wi-Fi, cable TV, propane, rec room, laundry, camp store or casino. There used to be fishing available but a spring flood burst the earthen dam and . . . . no more pond! What IS here: all the other stuff listed, to include showers (a new, modern air conditioned bath house/restroom complex). Yes, there are fire ants in Texas! They don't seek you out unless you temp them with food left outdoors or park on top of their home. As for traffic noise from highway 71, yes it is a factor-an important one if you have difficulty sleeping. With all that said, here are the facts: the Piney Hill camping area is farther from highway 71 than Copperas Creek camping area, has the only full hook-up pull through sites in the park, provides the largest, most private vistas from your window, is a short distance from the swimming pool, park headquarters, playground and hiking trails. For the money you will not find a more expansive private campsite anywhere in the Bastrop area. Our Verizon hotspot worked flawlessly and we got numerous clear channels OTA. Utilities are convenient, reliable and work fine. There is only one set of dumpsters serving the camping area, making it a hassle if you park a long distance away. It is true that the park police patrol all camping areas regularly throughout the day and night. This place is a bargain! - TMN-15

Bastrop is slowly recovering from the devastating fires of a few years ago. I stayed a couple of nights in a pull through site at Piney Hill and enjoyed my stay. The sites there are nice sized, but leveling can be a problem. Also not a whole lot of shade. I didn't use the camp bathrooms or golf course, so don't know their conditions. It was hot as is to be expected in August. The park has a nice swimming pool and gift shop. Yes, i'll stay again when possible. - Texas Jim

With reservations made in early December 2017, we camped under the tall pines in the COPPERAS CREEK campground of Bastrop State Park on a mid-March Friday and Saturday night in a full hook up site. Most of the full hook up sites were utilized by tents. Most trees between the Park and Texas Highway 71 were destroyed by the 2011 fire, so the highway noise and street light pollution from Texas Highway 71 was HORRIBLE! As we sat around our campfire, we could hardly conduct a normal level conversation! Definitely NO peace and quiet here, so light sleepers be warned! Restroom/bath house are fairly new construction with air conditioning. Check-in ranger was very friendly and helpful. We saw regular patrols of the ranger every hour or two throughout Copperas Creek campground. Great Saturday morning hike a volunteer naturalist, which took us thru the fire raged area of the park. Very informative and interesting info was provided on the fire and the rebirth and restoration, which will take a life time. This park has a swimming pool (which was closed during our visit) with no lake or lake access. I'm rating this TERRIBLE as I don't enjoy camping where I can see street lights and hear highway traffic at all hours of the day and night.
My recommendation is camper awareness...just know that there is no peace and quiet due to traffic noise. It will take the trees about 50 years or so to grow and form a noise barrier. - napunani

This place was a concrete jungle. I am sorry I picked this place. Lots of full time residents but very quiet. The water & electric were good. Not very level and had to put 2 blocks on one side to level us out. Parking was strange - had a small place next to trailer lot to park. It was so hot - Texas has been hitting the 100s for the past few weeks and this place just radiated heat. I found a small wooded area next door to walk the dogs which let me out at a church with woods behind it. - Kerch Family

First the good things, making a reservation and check in the folks were very nice. Power, water pressure and sewer were all good. Sites are all concrete however ours was not very level.
We requested a pull through as we were towing a vehicle. Was told at check in that once parked I would have to disconnect the toad since their pull through's are actually two back ins and they may have to rent the spot behind us. One of the reasons I like pull through sites is the option to leave the car hooked up or to be able to get it all hooked up the night before. Was told I would need to rent two sites if I wanted a true pull through.
Sites are very close together, no picnic tables and not enough room between the units to put one. Water hook ups are below ground and ours was flooded so you had to reach down into a pail of water to hook up the water hose. Our site had a small willow tree planted so close that it rubbed against the side of the coach and made it difficult to get to the back of the MH or in the basement compartments.
The grass has not been cut and needs it badly. Lots of full timers with older rigs with junk piled around their sites.
Noise level from the road and in the park is very loud and being so close to your neighbor you hear everything going on.
Last complaint is that there is no place to walk the dog except up and down the concrete drives.
Passport America discount is not the usual 50% off. We stayed here for 3 nights and we won't be back. - Razin Kane

We occupied the only one of two remaining pull-through site in the park. It did not have a sewer connection. Five previous pull-through sites (we've stayed before) have been converted to a type of "cabin" camping experience using new airstream trailers with full hook-ups in highly developed sites (shade, deluxe fire pit, deluxe gas grill island, table & Adirondack chairs, wheelchair accessible and overhead night lighting). Bottom line: this is an intentional nod to those looking to stay without RV's. It's a legitimate Lower Colorado River Authority decision, given that most people visit the park to fish, boat or swim. As RV'ers we, however, will not return. Regarding our site, water pressure and electricity were reliable but heavy use of leveling blocks were required to prevent an over-stroke error on my automatic leveling system. Site was clean with fire ring, picnic table, shade and plenty of asphalt space to park our RV and two cars. We received several high definition over-the-air TV stations and our Verizon hot spot provided good service. Bathroom was generally clean but unheated, making showers in December a trying experience. No laundry. Lack of sewers will define the park as a place for only short-term RV stopovers, holiday and weekend use. That said, this is a beautiful, quiet area and the park is well-maintained. - TMN-15

We stayed at North Shore Park for two weeks, changing sites mid-stay. The camp host was not there when we arrived & office was only open Thursday through Sunday, which I assume is winter hours. However, we did not know that before we arrived and had to figure things out on our own. (The telephone number provided when making a reservation is for the South Park campground.) The 50 amp wasn't working on our pedestal and we had to report it at South Park but it was eventually fixed. The sites were not level and I now understand the reviews that said this park is good for practicing. - We did manage to find a somewhat level section of the site. This is a small campground and was very quiet when we were there. The day rate I listed includes the day use fee that is in addition to the reservation charge. - lce3

The RV park is very well kept with a very friendly host who is always around if you need anything The day park & facilities, adjoined to the Camping section is another story. I heard a commotion coming from the women's bathroom during an evening walk & there was a whole faimily in there with suitcases and using the facilities. - Texan58

Park is rustic with lots of treesand chickens in park but they stay in roost until after 8 am. The rate is very reasonable and the friendly park host/owner only charged me for three days even though I was there for four nights. I would not consider this park a good location for a large RVs (ours is 36') as the available sites are not level. I found a site near the front of the park that was level enough to use my jacks but I barely fit. At this site the 50 amp power plug was so close to the ground that I could barely bend the cord enough to get connected. The road to the park is narrow and there are two rough railroad crossings to go over. And, yes, train traffic was an issue but the trains in the night seemed to mute their horns. Do not take the shorter route to the park as the road goes through a single lane, low water crossing that is very rough and steep - there were many scrape marks in the pavement where trailer hitches, etc. have hit. - sccatech

This place is a gem. Beautiful area with a lake. Our full hook up site had tons of trees, lots of room for our 41' MH and 4dr Jeep. Even with the heavy trees our Dish worked great. We were the only ones at the campground except for the camp host. Super quiet and private. - Fishclan Adventures

We camped here on a Friday and Saturday night in our travel trailer by making reservations 131 days prior to arriving. Our FHU site was nice and very private as it was surrounded by heavy brush. We were delighted to see that our campsite BBQ grill and fire pit was completely cleared of any ash or debris. Frequently barking dogs kept this from being a quiet campground. Basically the reason for this *POOR* rating is the shower/toilet situation. This campground has a total of 6 shower/toilet units where there is a sink, shower and toilet behind a locked door. Units were occupied by users for over an hour showering, creating a looooong wait for others who simply wanted to use a toilet. Great design of units, but 6 is totally inadequate for this size campground, especially when it is filled to capacity. I've seen cleaner restroom/shower facilities. Three camp hosts on site here! LCRA staff will deliver to your campsite $4 bundle of firewood. There is a $6 on-line reservation fee + day user fees of $5/pp for each day in campsite + the nightly $30 campsite fee. There are various discounts offered for the day user fees. - napunani

Not to be confused with nearby Bastrop State Park, this park is run by LCRA and the lake is part of the cooling process for a nearby electric plant. Pineywoods, great trails, kayaking and fishing on the lake. And ice cream novelties and Kuerig machine in the office. - mac2school

Not much has changed since I stayed here a year ago. At that time I stayed closer to the road in a newer section and it was muddy. This time I stayed in the main section. The road wasn't near as bad as a year ago. The grass had been cut but there was some weed eating to be done. The site next to me resembled a junk yard. There were tools, spare parts, a jack etc scattered about. They were in the process of rebuilding an open trailer is what it looked like. The truck traffic on the farm road started at 4:30 AM It is not a good RV park for a light sleeper. - mrracechaser

In transit so stayed only one night. Nice level site, we did not need to disconnect our tow vehicle. Cash or check for payment, credit cards accepted for an additional charge. We were happy with our campsite and the campground in general. Will definitely come back some time in the future. Easy access from 77. My rating is based on my own bias of looking for easy access with a level site. - Patricia Sterkowitz

This is the most decrepit park that I have stayed in since I have been traveling in a motorhome! This was probably a nice park way back when, but there has not been any maintenance in years. The facility is filled with rundown trailers with "stuff" all around them and weeds growing under. Trash was never picked up while we were there and the bins were running over! It did have FHU so that was a plus. The road leading in is full of potholes. No checks or credit cards, cash only! We had to stay there as we had a maintenance problem that was resolved on Saturday. I would not recommend this park to anyone! - oniedu
