Wolfdancer Golf Club

Stories resturant is amazing! Other eateries are equally unique. Golf is above the norm. Pubic areas and amenities are first rate. Great warm weather locale for outdoor pool and other outdoor activities. Guest rooms are clean and well appointed but not sensational.

Friendly small town with several cute 'ladies' shops. We spent about an hour walking first down one side of the street and then back up the other side. Parking was pretty easy especially on a weekday.

Spent 2 days at the ranch driving a Honda Civic sideways through the red dirt on the ranch. A fantastic experience with virtually the entire time spent behind the wheel practicing. In car coaching quickly got me up the learning curve. A great learning experience and an absolute blast.

100$ for four waves? No thanks. Anyone who books themselves as either the fourth or fifth person on the reef either hates their wallet or can't do basic math. There's only 24 waves per hour - for every added surfer in the water you get...MoreThank you for your feedback! We appreciate your time and will take your comments into consideration.

Zip Lost Pines was the first stop on our hill country Zipline tour during spring break. The weather was perfect, but a bit windy. The 6 lines are a nice variety and the guides couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful! It was too windy for our youngest to zip the last line, so we received a refund for that portion. That was certainly unexpected but appreciated considering the wind is completely out of their control. Zip 4 and 5 were the fastest, with zip 6 being the longest. I loved that they provided fanny packs at no charge to be able to store your phone safely so we could take advantage of the many photo ops. Each zip stop provided water which is likely a huge benefit during the summer heat. Safety played a large role at this operation...loved that aspect. I also appreciated the clean bathrooms at the welcome center. :) My teenagers loved this course and it was an amazing afternoon for all of us...even this mom who is terrified of heights.

I arrived just before the Visitor Center opened on Saturday and was surprised to see the upper parking lot nearly full of cars. When I got out I could smell bacon cooking as the girl scouts who had camped overnight were preparing breakfast. A group of cub scouts each holding the hand of a older sibling, parent or grandparent were lining up for a hike. A lady in a wheelchair was setting out on the ADA accessible Ridge Trail. A young couple was getting their gear ready for an extended hike on some of the 17.9 miles of trails. This park has something for everyone including 12 miles of equestrian trails and a zip line.
This scenic 1100 acre park situated along the Texas Colorado River encompasses four ecosystems-post oak savannah, blackland prairie, east Texas piney woods and riparian-which as a non-Texan was of interest to me. The visitor has items available to enhance your experience-binoculars, guide books, magnifying glass, etc. as well as a special pack for kids including bug containers and special books on birds, plants and insects.
Included in the exhibits and displays inside the visitor center are a fish tank and a reptile area with live alligator, turtle and snakes. There is also a place to fill your water bottles and a small gift shop.
I was very impressed with the scenery and all the park had to offer.

Museum and Visitor Center of Bastrop County Historical Society

Reviewed By John B - Toronto, Canada

Before exploring Bastrop definitely stop by the visitors' center to grab info on the community. We were very warmly greeted when we entered and were handed a number of brochures and maps to help with our visit. Definitely do the walking tour and with your car explore Pecan Street to see some of the stately older homes, many of which date back to the mid-1800s. There is a small museum ($5 admission charge) but we did not go in.

Berdoll Pecan Candy & Gift Company

Reviewed By WisTrippers - Wisconsin

They have the world's largest squirrel. That is reason enough to stop in. If you are the kind of person that does not enjoy seeing a giant squirrel, this is still a great stop. They sell pecans that are grown locally. Lots of free samples in the store. Their gift shop also has all kinds of cool items. Our kids liked it a lot. And the staff is super friendly and entertaining.

Dinosaur Park

Reviewed By randolphclan - Houston, Texas

We visited Dinosaur Park with our 3 children (11, 8, 5) while camping at nearby Buescher State Park.

I had told my oldest about it ahead of time because I was afraid that it would be geared towards younger children and she'd be bored, but she liked it as much as they did.

There is 3 different things to do:
Travel the dinosaur trail. A half mile trail through the forest with life size dinosaur models. The kids loved this. There was a small information board at each stop. There was a scavenger hunt that you can do along the way, all the kids enjoyed this as well. There were several photo ops on the trail.

Next, there was a playground with swings to play on. There was shady benches and tables for parents to wait.

Lastly, there was the fossil dig area. My kids liked this best of all. It was basically 2 rectangular elevated sandboxes with bones and fossils to uncover with small shovels and brushes. The loved this, especially the older kids.

The gift shop was actually priced fairly (for a gift shop) with lots of items at $5 or less.
