Info for Visitors

Bastrop County has a long history of hospitality – one in which we take great pride. Stephen F. Austin probably had the first organized tourism campaign for Bastrop County. He encouraged folks to come and enjoy the beauty that he had found. We are grateful to those that began the process of growth in our Lost Pines area of Central Texas – so close to Houston, Austin and San Antonio and yet, even now, a world away. We honor and preserve the rural character of our County as we offer every convenience found in our neighboring metropolitan areas.


Please explore the links to the websites of our partners that we have listed below. We hope that this information will help you in planning a visit to our County. We are wide open for visitors – ready for your family or your business group.
