Between Austin, San Antonio, Houston & Bryan/College Station

Welcome to the City of Smithville, Texas

The City of Smithville is located in a still-rural section of eastern Bastrop County. We are ideally situated in a central location between Houston and Austin along the Highway 71 corridor. Those cities, along with San Marcos, San Antonio, and Bryan/College Station, are within two hours' drive, making Smithville a very convenient location to do business and to visit.  Buescher State Park is just outside of town, and Bastrop State Park is just about 10 miles down Park 1C Road. Smithville boasts an airport, a recreation center, some of the finest city parks anywhere, and some of the friendliest people on the planet. Welcome to Smithville!
