Pace Bend is one of my most favorite places to camp in Texas.
Not far from the old (and new!) Backyard (a great place to see live music in the live oak capital of Texas), Pace Bend is a quick drive away. A perfect spot to pitch a bunch of tents, jump off cliffs, swim and barbeque. Maybe 45 minutes from downtown Austin (without traffic).
I won't lie the cliff diving kinda freaks me out. Be careful is all I'm saying!
There are several primitive campsites throughout the park with picnic tables, grills and toilets. Additionally there are 20 RV hook-up type sites that offer running water, electricity, restrooms and showers.
Not a lot of shade at our site. Other sites did have trees. Decent length walk to the lake, but beautiful. Saw many birds and some other critters during our stay.
This park is decent if you like staying around large lakes. There are plenty of camping spots so lots of room. There aren't many large trees, so don't plan on a hammock. It can get a little windy too. We went when Lake Travis was down so it was a long ways to the lake, but it if the lake is full it should be good. We stayed on a Thursday in the fall and we didn't see anyone else the whole time.
