There are a couple just off I-35 in South Austin. One is Crestview RV park at exit 220 and the other is Austin Lone Star Carefree RV park between Exit 227 and William Cannon Rd with full hook up pull through sites. You can call either and find out what they have for openings for 2016 then plan your trip around 2017. There is also Woodies RV that has some sites on COTA that have only water and electric hook ups.

I have stayed at the Oaks RV park and I liked it. Its decently close at 12 miles. But you better book it now.

I travel to Austin frequently on business and by choice stay in Bastrop to get out of the hustle of Austin. Be aware that prices skyrocket when the race is in town. or anything else for that fact


We have stayed at the KOA many times and like it. It's near the Hwy so it's a bit noisey.
Bastrop State Park was beautiful but the fires devastated it, it looks like a telephone pole factory now.
Last time we stayed at The Oaks and it's fine but a bit campy.

McKinney Falls is very good (no sewer hookup) and is secure, it's probably the closest to COTA.

I live in San Marcos, south of Austin and work at Austin Lone Star RV Resort. I have also lived at the campground for several years before moving and figured out that you can't get anywhere fast in Austin anymore. The highway noise reminds us of waves on the beach.

We are at Hwy 71 rv park right now and stay here often when we visit daughter and son and their families. We lived in Austin 24 years and have stayed in most parks around here since going full time. What you can do is rent a small car from Enterpise in Bastrop. They will drive out to 71 to pick you up (have done this many times when we need a car). They have constructed a new road off 71 with new signal lights east of the Del Valle high school signal lights that take you right over to COTA. From Hwy 71 to COTA is 13 miles by this route.
Oak Forest used to be our favorite but were sold to a corporation but some things have changed and not all positive.

Thanks, everyone for your input. We just made reservations at the KOA in Bastrop. I probably should have started looking earlier, as my choices were limited. And as someone said, the prices really do skyrocket whenever the COA has a major event! Our trusty little red CBR250 has taken us much further than the 23 miles we'll be riding to and from the track...

Guess it's been a bit since I visited McKinney. You're right, I remember driving through on the roads.
