North Shore Park on 900-acre Lake Bastrop has features to appeal to campers, anglers and nature lovers.

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.

Hike or bike on a 4.5-mile multi-use trail connecting North Shore and South Shore parks.

Boaters on Lake Bastrop and other lakes are required to drain their boats after use to help prevent the spread of zebra mussels. Learn more.
