Lake Bastrop South Shore Park (LCRA) - 40 min from Austin
Updated: Feb 9
LCRA's Lake Bastrop South Shore doesn’t hold back on recreation. With a huge covered pavilion, playscape, mini-golf, tetherball, indoor meeting areas, picnic areas, canoe/kayak rental, fishing and a small sandy beach area, you can tent camp, stay in waterfront cabins or connect to the RV hookups. The water is nestled amongst the pine trees and not very deep, even in the middle, making it a great spot to play and take photos.
Pro-tip: The sandy beach is basically a boat ramp with a little sand area at the top just out of the water, so you may want to set your expectations accordingly, but the kids enjoyed it just fine.
