Very friendly staff! Really enjoyed my short stay. Spots a little cramped. - Love the Beach

Park is very tight for a big rig. Severe speed bump at entry in the back row is capable of damaging your coach so careful not to make this turn until you check it out. Has considerable deferred maintenance on roadways. Check-in at dealership at receptionist, who also does about 5 or 6 other things to do for the dealership so be prepared to stand in line and then not really friendly. Do not blame her as she has other things to do and phones going off, than mess with us. Also, they need more help in all areas, including cleaning and maintenance throughout this park, particularly at the ridicules $33 a night. - fulltimer 2

Older park meaning that the streets are not adequate for maneuvering large units. Speed bumps approximately 100' apart throughout, one of which was so extreme we cracked our windshield crawling over it. Sites are 7' apart so we couldn't open our much needed awning as there is very little shade. Dumpster was located in the back corner at the end of a dead end street, really inconvenient. Dog park consisted of an open field but was free of soiled spots. Crowded at the time of our stay with mostly oilfield workers and extended stay units of all sizes and condition. Shower and laundry facility was adequate and maintained. Access from the interstate was good with Cabelas across the street. On-site camp host but he wasn't active and was bothered by my complaint about the speed bump. He wasn't available most of the time during our 4 day stay. Dealership provides good full service for most RV makes. We had recall work done at the shop and the attached park was more convenience than intentional. We would not stay here again. - wheels

Stayed here for six nights while attending a submarine veterans convention. Park was clean with long gravel pull through sites. Do not rely on your GPS to take you to the entrance due to construction on I 35. Traffic is a mess. I called ahead and got verbal directions which brought me to the park entrance. - arkietraveler

We stayed 4 nights and find the park very nice. All streets are asphalt and are a bit narrow but manageable. Sites are gravel or concrete. Our site was gravel and within 0.5" of level side to side. Front to back had a gentle slope to aid drainage. Power, water and sewer were all great. Most sites are shaded by large trees. Our pull thru was surprisingly wide which is a surprise for an in-town CG. Parking for our TV was convenient. There is no cable TV but air channels work well. The WiFi was a surprise, it worked remarkably well. My negative observations are some of the long term residents have let their sites become run-down and messy looking. The dog park needs some attention and in general several guests need training in how to pick up after their pets. As noted in earlier reviews the I-35 construction makes access a challenge. The location to the south parts of Austin make this an excellent choice and despite my negative comments we think this is a very nice park and plan to visit again when visiting relatives in Austin. - RedHorse1

Great park, wonderful staff, traffic in Austin is terrible. - JOEY14

We camp here for 2 weeks with 12 other couples. The park is among the best we have stayed in. The staff was outstanding in supporting our needs. The pool is pristine. There is a fully equipped rec hall with a full kitchen. The huge pavilion on the large 60 acre lake provided us the opportunity to have server cookouts and sit around the fire pit. They even have a on premise RV repair shop. - TexasChief

Stayed during Moto GP week no discounts available rate is a little higher. Park was well looked after, garbage pick up every day. Park is relatively new and as it matures the grass and trees will fill-in nicely. We enjoyed our stay. Swimming pool and hot tub or well looked after. About a 20-25 minute drive to the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) - Bentforks

Hats off to the office staff! They are excellent. They go out of their way to be helpful. They're always friendly and cheerful! Access to this place is dangerous! It's a very sharp turn off a busy highway. Signage is quite low and difficult to see unless you know what you're looking for. This is an 'all in one' price which means you don't need to pay power separately. We'd love to see some patio spaces and picnic tables here. That would encourage mingling among campers and provide a space to put down a barbecue. This campground is new and is still a work in progress. Roads are poor and quite broken up. If you don't mind being out in the country and away from shopping etc this is a very pretty place with beautiful sunsets. - 34cawder

I enjoyed the golf course and the area very much. there were alot of things to do in the nearby towns.
The office staff was very nice. It has Pull through sites and 50 amp service. There was supposed to be WIFI but we couldn't figure it out. There was a swimming pool which was nice in the heat.
The spots were gravel with Lots of big trees giving you a lot of shade. The roads were paved around the campgrounds but there are a ton of pot holes so you have to be very careful. - houseofclarkes

I paid monthly and stayed for three months. The location and monthly price was a good value (which is why I listed 14 a night). The people who ran the park were very nice and courteous. The pool was out of order, and the wifi barely reached more than 10 feet from the main office. The park looked very trashy, because they did not require people to maintain their lots. I never used the bathrooms, but I am willing to bet they probably weren't that good judging from the appearance of the rest of the park. On the plus side they don't care about trailer age, trailer appearance, families, retirees, etc. All are welcome. If you aren't too superficial this park isn't half bad. - Swift_Strongarm

Stayed here one night. Check-in went fine once the reservation was found and clerk figured out we were not staying for a month. Our drive through spot was easy to find/get into. The CG has MANY full time in a myriad of rigs and their outdoor decorations, stuff or just plain junk greatly distracts from this CG. The roads are narrow, rough and curvy which made negotiating our 40' rig with towed, very difficult. Rate reflects the Passport America discount; this is not a $40 a night CG. I would not stay here again. - Monaco Bob

This park very near Austin TX thus there is "city" background noise. All the sights and sounds (music) are at your convenience. The park is large with several camping loops, hiking trails, water falls. The sites are large generally with foliage between. Roads are paved, sites packed gravel and mowed grass (green ground cover). Good water and electric. - O2TRVL

Beware of the pull thru sites. They have a mean bend that prevents a fifth wheel from maneuvering in them. There are many trees so watch out for overhanging branches. The 30-amp electric and water hookups worked fine. The dump station was easy to use. Watch out for a coyote in the campground. The campground is very nice and the trail along the falls is pleasant. The campground phone was out of order and the staff seemed quite happy about it. There is no WiFi. The fire ring and picnic tables are at a ridiculous distance at the back of the campsite. - Melodycthomas

McKinney Falls State Park is on the outskirts of Austin. Compared to most "urban" campgrounds, it rocks. The state park is nice. It's on the outskirts of Austin. A few hiking trails, a couple of swimming holes. The campground is mostly older. Sites tend to be small. Some are level, some aren't. You don't get assigned a site until you get there. The first site we were assigned was a lovely site. Level and spacious. But it was next to a family group that had 6 adults and 15-20 preschool age kids. Seriously, they had four cars parked in the site, and a lot of their toys and stuff had already migrated into what was supposed to be our site. We didn't want any of that, so we went back to the registration and got another site. The second site was a pull through, but it was small, and really meant for tent camping. We were able to get our small motorhome level on it, but it was challenging. The picnic table and rest of our site was 30 feet away, and we ended up not using it. For the price (including $6 per person per day park entry fee), it was fine, but we weren't overly impressed. Both Verizon and AT&T were fine. - AnnP

Royal Palms should not be considered an RV Park in any way, shape or form. The sites that RVs are placed are rough gravel and not level. There are many rules that are not enforced consistently. If you do break a rule you are fined heavily. There is absolutely no security and break-ins happen frequently. This location is in a very dangerous area of Austin with drugs users and vagrants. Park staff and management are extremely rude to RVers. The park is not friendly, not fun and not safe. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone. - Hard working people changing the skyline

Royal Palms is a Royal Pain! We have stayed there for three years now, but this year there is new management and they are atrocious. They are nasty and will lie to your face without a thought.
Parking? They decided to charge you for a sticker to park in the lot you have paid to rent. Then they will tow you if you park in the street or on the gravel in front of your trailer. The guy who took our space when we left told us he was towed before he finished setting up the trailer.
Early this year they raised the rent with no notice, then added a $23 fee for garbage collection, something what had been included in the rent. Then they informed us we had to rake the leaves and water the trees (with water we have to purchase from them!) or we would be fined.
Physically, the park is well kept and the neighbors are great, but save yourself a lot of grief and stay away from the Royal Palms. - Ralph Hunt

Airport and Highway Noise. Really a Mobile Home Park, which rents out uncommited gravel pads. Shower and Restroom are only available during business hours like after 9 am. Check in is a zoo, with a lot of confusion. $48 rate and offers no club discounts. We only stayed here because Austin was pretty sold out. You stay here, it is your own fault! - Sir_Charles395

The first site we tried (A), wouldn't support much load on one of the 50 amp legs. The second site (52), worked fine although we were warned not to use all three air conditioners because it might blow the park supply fuses. The location of this park is great for an Austin visit. We could easily walk to Ladybird Lake, Zilker park, and a great number of restaurants. It was a short drive to the Capitol, the LBJ Presidential Library, H-E-B (groceries), Whole Foods, REI, and a bunch of music venues. This park is very picturesque with nice trees and a great feel. It was built in the 1940s, so the electrical power isn't the best. WiFi was good. We would certainly stay here again. One of our neighbors said they live a couple of hours out of town and always try to bring their Airstream to the Pecan Grove instead of a hotel room. Be careful of the Night Herons. They nest in the trees in April and May. They eat crawfish. And poop crawfish. Try not to be under one of their favorite trees. - Ward1980

Great location for Austin city visit. Walking distance to park and lake and restaurants and music venues. Very few sites available. Many longer term residents. Some with sitting areas and flowers and lights. Be aware that driving into Austin city area may be a little intimidating. - 1coloradan

This RV park on the south side of the river is very handy to touring downtown Austin and has easy access to the river trails. We like to walk and were able to access many places on foot. The park itself was tough to get to in our 40' motorhome towing a full-sized pickup. Although we had a decent pull through space we could not negotiate the turn into the site without unhooking. The aisle to our site was overhung with a very low power line, which had to be lifted (by the very helpful park manager) so that we could pass! - JanW

We were at COTA for an event that was going to start early in the morning and run all day, so we took the Airstream to make life easier. There are several weird/inconvenient things about this campground, though it was useful to us to stay there. 1) signage: The first time you see an RV sign coming up COTA Blvd from FM812, you've already past the actual entrance and the sign directs you to a secondary gate that is chained shut, with no info about where you should go. There's a security shack by a sign that says "Tunnel 2" that's where you actually need to turn to enter. As mentioned by another reviewer, the sites are design for you to pull forward with your motorhome or tow vehicle against the fence. If you're coming just to stay onsite this is OK (if a little weird) but if you back in so you can unhitch and use your truck, you'll need long water and electrical lines. Power was stable (though there were very few other RVs when we were there.) More-expensive sites are available with full hookup. Those sites cost 50% more. The dump station is DUMB. There are 2 sewer inlets and 1 water faucet, that's about 25' from the sewer inlets. There's just no reasonable way you can rinse your sewer hose or run your tank rinser unless you carry a long non-drinking hose for such purposes (and a sprayer). There's no way I'm hooking my drinking-water hose up to the faucet at a dump station, and no way to get your sewer hose close enough to the faucet to run rinse water into it. For another event at COTA we'd stay there again but not for any other reason. There is NO shade, which can be an important consideration much of the year in Texas. Power was decent, I didn't have enough hose to hook up water when backed in so I just filled up the freshwater tank and ran the pump. - DKB_SATX

This is an RV park located at the Circuit of the Americas race track. This location also hosts multiple concerts and a variety of venues. If you plan on attending a concert here or a race, it's a great way to treat yourself and stay on site. No worries about drinking and driving home. Hosts are great and a short walk to the main entrance of the park. Sites also face part of the race track so you can enjoy watching right from the RV spot. Sites are designed to pull into as all hookups are to the left of each space. If you back in you need very long hoses to run under your RV to get to the hookups. The sites are really designed for trailers that you can pull into and face the fence. Luckily we had no neighbors so the host let us connect using the hookups for the spot next to us. We had a large 5th wheel. - Rusty and Janet
