Some fun hiking trails, but we didn't do as many as we had hoped to do. Temperatures were 104° and just took everything out of us...can't blame the park for the weather, though. Big rig friendly. Sites are pretty level, though we did need to do a little leveling, and well spaced apart. Each loop has a restroom and shower. Some pull-throughs and some back-ins. Back-ins are angled so they're easy enough to back into. W&E with a dump station. Most sites are at least partially shaded. All have picnic table and grill. Our site, #69, had 30 & 20 amp only. I don't know if some others had 50 amp. Close to everything Austin has to offer. Recommend getting a Texas Parks Pass for $70 if you're going to be in Texas more than a week. It's good for a year. $6 per person per day fee is waived with the pass, and if you pay for one night camping the 2nd is half price. It doesn't take long for it to pay for itself with those bennies. Poison ivy is EVERYWHERE.

Austin City Park
Traveling during 2020 and Covid is interesting for sure. The park is like a well maintained city park. There are a good amount of trails to wonder with a decent amount of local day use traffic. You can hear slot of traffic noise and shooting from the nearby police training grounds. Sites are decently spaced with broken pavement pads. We have seen deer ever morning and hear coyotes in the evening. We were hoping to do some site seeing in Austin since it is do close. But have been put off by Covid fears.

McKinney Falls State Park
I stayed here for 4 nights while attending a wedding in early March. The campground is pretty nice although starting to show it's lack of regular maintenance. Level sites and nicely spaced so not too crowded. Right on the edge of Austin if you have interests there. Nice little trail system if you're looking for a low intensity hike. Very reasonably priced for a site with water and electric.

Not FHU. Park is nice but a little unkept. Grass needed to be cut. Sites are really Unlevel-probably worst we’ve ever had. Private. Construction going on at one of the buildings. Hiking was good.

location is great for city access
If you are visiting Austin and want both camping and city excursions, this place is great. Nice trails for biking and hiking (homestead trail, onion trail). Bathrooms are ok. If you are road triping through texas, it helps to get the state parks pass.

Campsite was not crowded even though it was sold out. Facilities we're clean and rangers we're helpful. 8 souls per site but $6 for each over 13 will get pricey as the kids grow up. Great value for us. Trails were also long and well marked.

The cost to stay here is way too high, we were charged for the camp site, with very tight parking space, as well as DAILY entrance fees for every individual. Ended up costing more than an RV resort. Not kept clean, rundown bathhouse, trash on grounds and at waterfall area. My truck front tire was on the edge of the driveway, so the ranger issued a warning that we could be fined $500! Will not be visiting here again.

Awesome Campground Close To Austin.
Great campground. Friendly ranger. Small camp store. Nice paved 2+ mile bike & walking trail around park. Cool river & falls / swimming hole running strong in December. Lots of trees and space between campsites. Traveling in 30ft motorhome.
