When it comes to camping, there’s a lot of gorgeous to go around in Bastrop, TX and we’re definitely willing to share. With the Colorado River running through and the famous Lost Pines all around, we’ve got a lot of prime tent campsites, RV parks, and glamping spots. Here’s where you should head:
Tent Camping Spots
Nestle into nature right in the middle of the Lost Pine forest in Bastrop State Park. They have several well-cared-for tent campsites and lots of excellent hiking, fishing, swimming, bike riding, and tons of birds and wildlife.
You could also camp right by the lake at both Lake Bastrop North Shore Park and Lake Bastrop South Shore Park where they have tent spots as well. You can bring your own watercrafts or rent them there. There’s also a retail store for odds and ends.
If you’ve got a taste for vintage horror films, you can camp where they filmed Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the gas station turned BBQ joint. The Gas Station has campsites and four rustic cabins with one shared bathroom for rent, along with great BBQ and memorabilia for sale.
RV Parks and Slips
The Basin RV Resort is its own version of comping bliss. There’s a splash pad, playground and swimming pool for you and the kids, plus fishing along the banks of the Colorado River. There’s a community camping kitchen and a covered pavilion right next to the pool too.
Conveniently located on Hwy 21 near Hwy 290, Highway 21 RV Park is well-equipped with everything you need. There’s a laundry room, bathrooms with showers, a dog park, free wi-fi, storage units, and even a notary on-site.
Longer stays are more than welcome at Bastrop Sunny RV Park where their monthly rates are all-inclusive. There are spacious shower combinations, a full kitchen, and a recreation area with comfy couches and TVs.
RV slips with hook-ups are also available at both Bastrop State Park and Bastrop Lake North Shore and South Shore Park. If you’d like to rent an RV while you’re here, Funtime RV Rentals and RV4Rent have several great options for you.
Great Glamping Spots
Two words – luxury yurt. The Reserve at Greenleaf is your chance to make that dream happen. They have four to choose from on the lush and peaceful Greenleaf Estate where hiking, kayaking, fishing, swimming, or just hanging it out in the hot tub are yours to enjoy.
Over at Lake Bastrop North Shore, you’ll find seven GLAT Ausin safari-style tents just steps from the water decorated in charming themes like France, Texas, and Montana. You can stay in nature with amenities like air conditioning and heat, wi-fi, an outdoor projector, and lots more.
There are also three GLAT Austin luxury cabins, the largest of which sleeps six with a full bathroom and kitchen. Outside you’ll find a luxury granite patio complete with a gas grill, fire pit, comfy chairs, and a hot tub.
Also on Lake Bastrop North Shore, there are five decked-out Airstream campers available for rent if you’d like to glamp retro-style.
Right in the midst of the Lost Pines, 9E Ranch Cabins offers four themed cabins with charming perks like an antique tub, a queen bed, and gorgeous hilltop views.
Over in Bastrop State Park, you can stay in any of 13 rustic, lakeview cabins that were built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s.
Over in McKinney Roughs Nature Park, they have a hostel that sleeps 10 and dormitories that sleep 122 if you’d like to bring a larger group. You can slip in some hiking, biking, or even zip-lining at Zip Lost Pines while you’re there.
