Great place in the Guadalupe River. The RV spots have plenty of room. Backing in can be tricky if it’s a busy weekend and you arrive late. Pack an ice chest an a chair and get wet in the river. Awesome views and people there are real helpful. Can’t wait to go back next year.
Pace Bend is a great place to camp - lots of camp sites, some are secluded. You’re close to the city but far enough to feel like you’re out in nature. Beautiful views of the lake and good spots to swim and cliff jump. Some deep water soloing, places to put in kayaks and a couple of boat ramps at the park. There are a few restaurants on the road into the park (Lee’s on the Lake is fairly cheap, kid friendly, and they have delicious fried catfish). Have camped there at least 6 times and have always had a great time!
This park is a hidden little gem on Lake Travis just outside of Austin Texas. They have about 20 campsites that would accommodate all types of campers from tents to RVs. The camp sites are rustic with no signage or amenities. The highlight is the lake and the facilities for scuba divers. They have ladders leading down to the lake with underwater statues, sunken boats, and training platforms for scuba training. They also have an air tank refill station and carts to haul your dive gear. The use fee is $10 in the week and $15 on the weekend. You can’t beat the price for the location and dive setup this close to Austin. I gave it a two based on the condition of the campsites and the look and feel of the overall park which is a bit run down. They appear to be storing old sail boats, campers, and d gear around the park.
The trails, picnic areas, swimming, and other attractions are amazing. The upper falls are easy to get to and quite refreshing. My two biggest problems come from not very many access points to the trails from the camping areas and the tent pad being made of crushed granite.
I’d highly suggest finding a camping site with a flat grassy area and using that instead.
Family of 5, Grandma, Mom & 3 teenage boys, well organized, had after hours packet ready that was a pleasure to have. Clear and with tag for the truck. Pull through sites, nice trees and a wonderful first time at location. We will go back and recommend it to everyone.
Only a few spots to rent out for the weekend but a very well kept beautiful place to visit. Sits on top of a hill so plenty of breeze and trees for shade. Very quiet and friendly guests that live there full time. Close to lots of things to do around the area. Great host. Lot 6 was big and came w a table fire pit and bbq grill.
When it hasn’t been raining in Austin, the best part of this park, it’s name sake, isn’t on display. But still a freaking amazing place to camp in nature, but still be in city limits! Its crazy, but you can hike during the day and catch a movie at night (what a friend and I personally did). Nice trails. Definitely a place you have to try.
Like the title says, hands down best hiking in the county.
Has varied terrain, river, hills, flat areas. Also a fairly large park.
Equestrian trails. Also zip lining in this park as well. No camping allowed here.
My favorite place to hike.
Getting out on the lake is the reason you come to this park, let’s be honest. Decent sized lake to accommodate fishers, kayaks, SUP, and swimmers, all on a busy holiday sucks as Memorial Day.
There is a trail that leads from south shore to north shore, but the one time I tried to hike it, it was closed. And the staff who I talked to about hiking there didn’t tell me it was closed, nor was it marked on their trail maps there were giving out in the checkin office. This really upset me cause the only other trails there are small loops.
There is another LCRA park about 20 minutes away where the staff actually marks on the maps daily what trails, if any, are closed off that day.
I live about 25 minutes away from this park and have taken my dad fishing here as well as hiked here several times. There are so many trees that it keeps the Texas sun and heat off you pretty dang well.
Bathroom is well kept as well as the park.
A fire and flood can’t keep this park down. A fire took out much of the greenery and a flood took out a bridge, but it’s still a good old favorite for locals to go hike at.
Want to ride our bike? Perfect because this park has an 11 mile back road to another state park! Had a lot of hills so perfect for someone who doesn’t want a boring flat trail.
Greenery is slowly coming back but seeing the burned forest also has its beauty. Reminder of how it can all Be gone in a flash.
I have not camped here because it’s so close to home but I have hiked several times.
Hiking, kayaking, tenting, hammocks, mountain biking, horseback riding are all available here. Clean & flat sites, water views, quiet, convenient facilities from every site. Gorgeous trails with no end to photo ops. A pups happy place! Picnic tables and bbq grills provided. Friendly park host to answer all your questions.
Natural springs w/tent & RV camping (NO PETS), fishing, kayaking, lake access, hammock areas and day use picnic w/grills. CASH ONLY FACILITIES!! Family owned. Beautiful Butterfly garden great for yoga, reading or enjoying the mind of a gardener. Several RV w/H20 & electric hookups (reservations required). Tent sites are not #, random locations (30 acres), plentiful and 1st come 1st serve. Toilets/showers near RV sites, portable toilets farther out. Pack it in/out, dumpster at office area. Love this place and grateful the owners share their haven with the public!
This is a park that we have been to multiple times. It is beautiful. The RV sites are Water and Electric only. There are primitive sites as well as water only for tent camping. The sites are large and there is wildlife everywhere. In my pictures you will see we had a deer walk right into our site several times. There are tons of trails and geocaches around the park. Make sure you hike down to the falls and wander up and down the river. There are tons of small alcoves that are private and make for beautiful pictures.
This is smaller state park but it has everything you need. Larger sites, lots of shade and a cool river to swim in. There aren’t much in the way of hiking trails but to soothe your ills just walk down to the Blanco river and hang out in a tube or just swim. The sites all have a covered table which is really nice during the summer. There is a rock walled area that is the “kiddie pool” area that is really nice to relax in. I would also recommend heading into town and checking out the town square. There are lots of fun little shops.
I would give this a 4.5 if possible but that isn’t an option so I rounded up to not ding the campground as much. We stayed in RV5, which is a pull through. The sites are a little tight but they are what you would expect at an RV park. The staff is excellent. There are a lot of activities. We were here for 4 days and none of us could get the WiFi to connect. The WiFi is my biggest gripe with the campground. We are on AT&T and were able to use use data without any issues. The bathrooms by the office at the best. We will definitely be back.
We had an amazing stay at KL Ranch Camp Cliffside. The staff was extremely helpful l, even notice them assisting the RV next to us with their AC issues. Very well maintained and we had an amazing view of the Guadalupe River. Access to the river was across the street. Only wish they would enforce their quiet hours we had really noisy neighbors next us. Wish they had an RV pad because there was a lot of mud around us.
The sites are very packed together. We ended up in a site facing another camper. We both had to adjust where we were parked so that we could each extend our awnings. The sites are level but you don’t come here for the sites - its the water park or for the activities in the Hill Country. The back in sites at the back of the park actually give you the most room.
There are tons of activities for the kids and adults alike.
Great RV Park with plenty of parking spots and plenty of room in between campers. It’s gravel with grass lawns that they keep up very well and concrete patios for camper steps. It has satellite and WiFi for each camp spot. The office is really nice it has a store, laundry mat, bathrooms and showers. There is a dog park, swimming pool, horseshoe pits and playground for the kids. And the whole park is fenced in and gated at the entrance. Just check out their website for pics!
Me and the wife went on 06/18/2019. Right near a nice clear lake (no sand, you can swim but bring swimming shoes, sharp rocks). This seems to be primarily an RV site, it comes with an overhead canopy that provided a lot of shade, under the canopy was a wooden park bench, a sort of breakfast bar type thing attached to the canopy. Few feet away was a BBQ pit, a fire pit, a driveway for 1 single vehicle, a pipe for water, and an electrical box that had your regular RV connections as well as your regular household plug in. If you're getting a spot near the lake, be prepared for other guests with kayaks to walk through your camp to get to it. Bathrooms are provided, zero ventilation so it gets hot/cold with the weather. Showers are provided as well. The bathrooms were dirty as expected just accommodate for that. If you're walking through the camp at night bring a flashlight it's very dark. Minimal bugs during the day but once nightfall came there were TONS of junebugs. We car camped here and it was amazing.
We’ve stayed at Lazy L&L several times since 2011. This is by far our favorite place to stay. The Guadalupe River is so beautiful and lined by huge Cypress trees. Cool store and tube rentals on site. Live music and dance on the weekends after Memorial Day. Lots of fun stuff to do and very relaxing.
Mountain breeze was a great experience. All the staff were nice and polite. They had security officers on site at all times which was a nice plus. If you do NOT like to party, listen to loud music, be around excessive drinking and loud people…. this in NOT the place for you. Campgrounds were clean. We really enjoyed our trip and will definitely be back.
