I would concur with everyone else on your choices you listed, Colorado.
If you are doing only one night then put in at FM969 and take out at Fishermans Park in Bastrop. You can park there overnight but do not leave anything in your vehicle.
Best campsite will be the BIG island at 30 09 02.35N and 97 20 53.98W. The front of the island is rock mixed with sand and you can pull up and get out easy. If it is too windy on the front you can go to the back of the island and there is a low gravel bar with some sandy very small sandy spots here and there. I had some friends camped there 2 weeks ago and the floods from May/June have really cleaned up the place with plenty of firewood at your doorstep.
Your Sunday paddle to Bastrop is about 1.5-2hrs.
For shuttle you can call Cooks Canoe at 512-461-7139. His name is Neil Cook, tell him Earl from DDRC sent you.
Enjoy and post a report.
