Outdoor Recreation

Outdoor lovers come from all over to enjoy Bastrop County’s natural beauty. Hike on seven miles of trails, fish the lake, swim, kayak, bike or simply relax and watch the wildlife. The naturally hilly terrain and forests of loblolly pines provide a scenic backdrop for horseback riding, zip lining and more. Beyond our parks and trails, we have three riverside golf courses that allow you to soak up the sunshine while you master your game.
