One fun pass time in Bastrop County is kayaking on Lake Bastrop which is located about 4 miles northeast of downtown Bastrop.
The entry to the South Shore park turn off is on Hwy 21. The North Shore park entry is off of FM 1441 which can be accessed of of Hwy 95 or Hwy 21 from Bastrop. Both parks and the approx. 900 (surface ) acre lake are managed by the Lower Colorado River Association ( LCRA ). Day fees are minimal and there are also campsites and cabins for rent. This lake was developed as a cooling resevoir for the local power plant. Kayaks and canoes can be rented and there are swimming beaches at both the North and South Shore. There are limitations on the types of boats and the types of fishing on Lake Bastrop which you can read more about on the LCRA website.
There are some wonderful homes and land around Lake Bastrop. Please call me if you would like more information.512-237-1242
