Bastrop Reviews

Coming from up North, I never thought I'd live in a small town. Living in Bastrop, Louisiana has its pros and its cons. First, Bastrop is extremely small and has old fashioned stores, exhibiting buildings that are depicted in western movies despite the fact that the town is in the South. The crime rate in Bastrop is mediocre, some would say stay in your home at night. There's not much entertainment in Bastrop, or at least not for children. Overall, Bastrop is a little town in the South that has its ups and downs like every other place.
Review Bastrop
What I Like about Bastrop, La is the fact we are a very Small Community population of almost 11,000 people. I also like the fact that Rental properties are very affordable in this area to live and maintain a Home what we call a Roof over our heads. My overall experience in Bastrop has been a Pleasant one.
Although the town is a nice small community, there are few job opportunities outside the school system which has faced many challenges since the paper mill closing.
