    Flowing over and around huge slabs of limestone, the Pedernales River can be turbulent. But most often it is tranquil, and a great place to relax and recharge. We are just 30 miles west of Austin. Come over for an afternoon swim or hike, or load up your gear for an overnight adventure. The river awaits!

    Choose a site with water and electricity or hike to a primitive site. Bring your group to the Youth Group Camp or Equestrian Group Camp.

    Listen to Onion Creek flowing over limestone ledges and splashing into pools. Follow trails winding through the Hill Country woods. Explore the remains of an early Texas homestead and a very old rock shelter. All of this lies within Austin’s city limits at McKinney Falls State Park - what are you waiting for?

    Think of the park as Austin’s backyard; we’re just 13 miles from the state capitol. Here you can camp, hike, mountain or road bike, geocache, go bouldering, and picnic. You can also fish and swim in Onion Creek.

    Onion Creek can flood after rainfall. Beware of the creek’s flow; contact the park for current creek conditions. Read through our swimming safety tips before you visit.

    Stay at one of 81 campsites (all with water and electric hookups). Or rent one of our six newly remodeled cabins. We also have a primitive youth camping area, for use by nonprofit-sponsored youth groups

    Family owned and operated for over 40 years. Primitive camping and no-hookup sites for RV's. We accept no reservations as there are no reserved sites, but in 40 years, we have never been "full".  We offer waterfront access to Lake Travis with 1,200 feet of shoreline, and scuba diving is a major pastime here as well with an underwater park so bring a mask and snorkel (we're the #1 dive site in Texas)! 25 minutes from downtown (used to be 17 minutes, but the city grew).

    btw … We're not the government, so you can openly consume your adult beverages of choice responsibly … also, since our insurance won't allow them, (and as we are a barefoot-friendly locale), dogs are not allowed (putting them in the same category as glass containers, fishing, and fireworks) ... sorry Fido!!!
