We have simply loved our weekend away in Bastrop, Texas! There are so many state parks nearby, and the local parks are amazing too. We can swim, hike, fish, and camp all while maintaining social distancing. We really wanted to stay somewhere near the city, so we found the perfect secluded spot – The Pines RV Park!
Here is their website: www.thepinesrv.com
The massive, towering pines give heavy shade to several spots in the small park. It is literally across the street from Bastrop State Park and its Lost Pines. The park is right off the highway, which means it is very accessible but you do get some road noise. We left the door open with just the screen last night and were able to sleep just fine. So, yes, there is some noise, but it isn’t bad.
There is a main building complete with all the basics you need: a large fridge, sitting area, shower, and commercial laundry. Everything was done virtually! We booked, communicated with the owner, paid, and got our access codes without ever interacting with anyone. This makes it completely possible to remain socially distant while experiencing nature and the outdoors!
Each spot had lots of space and the park was completely quiet during our stay. Because it is quite small, you really don’t hear much from the neighbors, which is exactly what we needed! It was very inexpensive at $40 for most sites and $45 for the larger pull through space. The park is very new and clearly well-cared for and maintained. There is a park host on site if you need anything, but we resolved everything through text with the owner. We will certainly be back!
