Sailing, skiing and canoeing are other popular activities on Lake Bastrop. South Shore Park now offers on-site canoe rentals. On shore, park guests can enjoy the shaded day use and swim areas for picnics, an expanded hiking and biking trail, tetherball court, and a hall with AC/heat perfect for family reunion and other group events. A new mini golf course has been added as part of the many amenities! Guests can play 9 or 18-holes.
A boat ramp with a boat dock and fishing pier provide fishing and access for water-based recreation. There are also picnic areas that include tables, grills, a sand volleyball court, tetherball courts and a play area. Rest rooms and showers are available for park visitors. Near the day use and swim areas the North Cove Group Area provides a partially shaded site for groups of up to 50. This group area includes a large grill, picnic tables, and a large serving table.
