BASTROP, Texas -- Bastrop State Park will be mostly open by the weekend after restoration efforts to rebuild after wildfires burned nearly all of the national landmark in 2011.
State officials said Monday that 80 percent of the 7,000-acre park's trails have been reopened. Reservations are being accepted for all campgrounds and the park's 13 climate controlled cabins.
Parks officials have worked to remove hazardous trees from the area and restore campgrounds. The park near Austin will have an official grand reopening on Labor Day weekend in September, the one-year anniversary of the fire.
