In 1943 my Dad was drafted into the Army, and was sent to do basic training in a camp east of Austin, TX. My Mom, sister, and myself, not yet three years old, spent four months living in this cabin in Bastrup State Park. The cabin was constructed by the WPA in 1938, just five years before our arrival, so they were relatively new at the time. What a surprise to discover that the cabins are still here, well maintained, and still being used by Park visitors.
