“Before the 2011 wildfire, loblolly pines covered most of Bastrop State Park. Because this pine pocket was separated from the East Texas Pineywoods by over 100 miles, this area is known as the “Lost Pines.” How did they get here? Pollen records show that pines have persisted in this area for over 18,000 years. They were probably once connected to the Pineywoods region. Over time, the climate became drier and the region covered by pines shrank. The local PINEY sandy soils provided conditions for these WOODS “Lost Pines” to survive. In fact, the pines LOST PINES have become genetically unique, having adapted to 30% less rainfall than loblollies from East Texas and adjacent states. The Lost Pines loblollies represent the westernmost stand of loblolly pine trees in the United States.”

* New to HTXO or just never made it to the “Rock Out Weekend”?  

Here’s a quick overview of what the fuss is all about.  The name comes from originally renting a house to do a bike ride to Enchanted Rock (the rock) and back.  But, we got to the house and no one really wanted to ride that hard, it was more of a “hey let’s just chill and enjoy the Hill Country”……..

Every year more people came and we had to find a bigger house until we settled on a yearly event with a little bit of everything. 

Hiking and biking, swimming, and kayaking. 1000’s of stars and room for everyone.  It’s “rustic” (don’t expect mints on the pillows) and comfortable.  There are always several cabins of varying sizes scattered around the properties.  We do our best to accommodate, help people find roommates if you need one, and make sure the rooms fit the people.  No worries, there is no shortage of bathrooms.  

There are also refrigerators, mini-kitchens, feel free to also bring your own coolers.

We share dinners and breakfast items are laid out to grab as you go out the door to whatever adventure you have planned for the day

Dinners and breakfast foods are included in the price – that is Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights and Friday, Saturday Sunday mornings.  We also put some lunch “fixins” out if you want to grab a sandwich to go for the day. We have some Members who are amazingly talented in the kitchen and on the grill so expect to be full and happy after dinner and ready to hang out under the stars.

And yes, we do ask everyone to pitch in and help – there will be a sign-in board for volunteering.

Before the weekend kicks off, there will be numerous events posted on the Calendar for the weekend.  These events always include hiking, kayaking, biking in the area. Rock climbing in the area.  Swimming in our private swimming hole, sightseeing all around the area.  Wine tasting & even whiskey tasting at times.  

In addition to the events that are posted on the calendar, there are whiteboards for last-minute events, event changes, event ideas, pretty much anything to do with events…….Can’t wait to have you join us!
