Places to Camp near Austin, MN

294 Reviews

Camping near Austin is an interesting proposition as Texas’s unique laws create a shortage of available BLM land. Affordable camping in Texas isn’t impossible to find, though, if you know what you’re looking for.

Your best bet in the Lone Star State is to look for state parks or Wildlife Management Areas to camp. The best camping near Austin will allow you to stay close to the city without feeling like you’re camping in a concrete jungle. Campgrounds at the Granger Wildlife Management Area near Taylor, TX, are a great place to start. While there are nice RV parks in the Austin Area, you won’t want to stay in the city if you're looking for tent campsites. The immediate Austin area offers several good parks and wildlife areas, though the best camping is east of Round Rock.

    This park has something for everyone. The trails take visitors around wet lowlands, oak savanna, and grasslands. Albert Lea Lake and park marshes draw hundreds of waterfowl during migration. Oak savanna and prairie landscape, including wetlands, dominate most of the park. One of the more unique aspects of the park is the 116-acre Big Island, covered with maple/basswood forest. Another is the glacial esker located in the northeast section of the park.
