Austin, San Marcos RV parks

Going to be spending a week in that area in april. Need recommendations on rv/cg there. Looking at pecan grove in downtown austin as one choice. DW attending conference at Hyatt which is walking distance from pecan grove.
Where to stay in San Marcos? Any experienced members here? Thanks.

If you can get spot in Pecan Grove in Austin, you will enjoy the environment. Lots to do in that area of the City. Most of the park is permanent residents but they do have a few spots for campers. No online reservations, you have to call to book. Pecan Park in San Marcos is a nice RV park on the San Marcos River. Might be too cold to tube the river but close driving to the outlet mall.

I recommend you look at Austin Lone Star. We stayed there in mid December 2014.

Thanks. Pecan park was my first choice for San Marcos area. I'll check out lone star. Austin stay is strictly convenience for conference but San Marcos is for pleasure.

Never stayed at Lone Star but get my propane filled there often and haveused them to dump tanks. Looks like a nice park. Just an FYI, if you’reoffended by an adult bookstore, there is one next door to the park. The park isheavy with trees so you can't see it from within the park.

Spent 3 weeks in San Marcos back in my police days. Great place and super nice people. Tubed the river every day. Brings back some great memories. Enjoy!

McKinney Falls State Park is a fairly convenient drive to downtown Austin

Pecan Park Riverside in San Marcos is one of our favorites, nice large sites with shade trees in walking distance of the river. Lots of restaurants nearby and two great outlet centers for shopping.
