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.

Scenic Drives (Field Trips on Wheels) - Get in the car and go for a leisurely drive along Park Road 1C between Buescher and Bastrop state parks. This scenic 12-mile route will take you through the beautiful Lost Pines of East Central Texas. Turn down the radio and enjoy the serenity of the forest along this quiet drive. Call the park for more information.
