Austin trip

Hi everyone,
The DW and I are planning to go to Austin in late March and are looking for RV parks with full hook ups in or near Austin. Looking for suggestions. We plan to spend about 3 days seeing Austin take a day to see San Antonio and plY it by ear after that. Also any suggestions on things to see.

Thanks

Go to RV Parky site. It will show all campgrounds with reviews. I used it going cross country in 2016. We lived in Houston for 10 years and did a lot of camping in the Texas Hill Country. Great sight seeing all around the area. Fredricksburg is not far from Austin...Nimitz Museum is recommended there. Google Texas Hill Country attractions. Love that whole area. PM me if you want more details on campgrounds. Safe travels.

Also, March time frame is the yearly Bluebonnet spectacular all through the Hill Country. Various routes to explore the beauty of it all.

This site usually has the most reviews:

Austin, TX Campground Reviews - Best of Austin Camping - RV Park Reviews

but this site lets you filter for sewer hookups (and other things):

https://www.rvparky.com/search?l=Aus...ffe001f8&d=&s=

It's not 100% accurate though. It says Mckinney Falls SP has sewer and I know they don't, so once you pick some favorites, check their individual web sites to confirm.

Weíve stayed in the suburbs of Austin twice now. The first time, we stayed at a place called Oak Forest. Nice place, though we ended up on a ďbuddyĒ site where doors faced each other... and didnít know our buddy.

The second time, we stayed at La Hacienda and really liked it. Pretty luxurious and well kept.

Iíve wanted to stay at Pecan Grove RV Park but they have so few big rig spots that I havenít been able to get in. Plus, we are usually visiting with a friend and look for things with closer proximity to him.

Thanks everyone. Saw Mckinney Falls looks great but the DW really wants sewer hook up. I haven't looked at RV Parky will do along with other suggestions.

We lived in Austin for years until we went full timing. If you want to visit be aware the Indy cars are at COTA March 22-24 so parks are and will be filling up. Bastrop has several real nice parks with FHU service too. Check campgroundreviews.com and check em out.

We live about 60 miles from Austin, and have been to just about every park you would want for exploring the City. My wife and I are originally from Austin. Check RVparkreviews website, they are pretty accurate for the Austin Area.



Our "GoTo" park in Austin is Oak Forest RV Resort. Lots of space, full hook ups, good cable, strong wifi. There is nothing wrong with this park. Restroom and shower facilities are like being at home, with a heated pool and hot tub. We've stayed here probably 50 times. Close enough to the city, but far enough to get away from the noise as well. Park is well taken care of.

Next is Austin East KOA Holiday. It closed and reopened recently. It's a lot like Oak Forrest, minus paved roads. Some of the "deluxe" type site have nice outdoor furniture and functional clean Weber gas grills.


Lone Star RV Resort is on IH35 heading on the South side of town. When you pull up you can tell it used to be a KOA. Has all the hook ups, and it will do, but for us it was a step down from the other two in over - everything. Its older, clean, but not well kept.

McKinney Falls State Park - its a typical state park in a questionable part of town, sorry. We've stayed there quite a few times, without issue. It's difficult to get into due to how small it is, all the facilities are older. The sites are spread out but small. It looks like your in the "stick" but right up the road are all the stores you need.

Pecan Grove RV Park - IF YOU CAN GET IN, it's large, but mostly permanent rentals in the city. We've stayed here a couple of times. Lots within walking distance: restaurants, music, bars, etc.. If you're not staying in the park, which we usually do not, this one is for you. If you have to cook out, stir clear.

Circuit of the Americas is way, way, WAY out of town, by the airport and the race track. We've never stayed there, but I've been to plenty of concerts there. Parking lot, that's it.



In San Antonio, where our son lives we usually go to Travelers World RV Resort. It's close to just about everything with full hook ups. Concrete pads, newish tables, heated pool, nice facilities. Park is larger than it looks. On the bus route if you need that.

Admirality in San Antonio is okay. It's been there a while, the burbs have grown up around it. Very narrow spaces, but full hook ups. Not our top choice, looks of permanents and workers.

Greenlake RV Resort is fairly new. A little farther out than Travelers World around a small lake. We've stayed here 4-5 times when Traveler's World was full. Well kept, nice green grass everywhere, nice pads with tables, full hookups, pool. Just a little farther outside the City.
