I am less an RVer and more of a "tiny home" advocate. I love it here because of the management, seclusion, and closeness to a major city. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one month here, the price reflects a monthly price of $400, plus metered electric charge of $40. We stayed in the new section in the rear of the park. It just opened in February 2017, and the owners said they plan on one more new section in the future. I wonder if the owners are relatively new to the park, as reading some of the negative reviews don't seem to reflect our experience at all. This park is fairly rustic, which we liked but which might not be what you want - there is a bathroom/shower room, but we didn't use it, so I don't know if it was clean, although I saw people going in and out, so I doubt it was awful. I did do laundry, and it was reasonably priced and worked fine. Plus, they have a small reading library, with books for both kids and adults. There are a number of long-termers at the park, and a nice range of ages, including kids. One of the best, new, features of the park is a brand-new wi-fi system, that went live on our second day. Good thing, as the LTE signal was bad there. We were able to switch our phones to the AT&T wi-fi, so that solved the phone issue. We noticed we picked up a strong LTE signal about a mile closer to highway 290. One nice thing about the location, is you are about equi-distant from Dripping Springs and Blanco, both worth exploring. We have family in DS, so that often was our direction, but we had fun exploring the backroads, too. I think this park, now with 63 spaces, is a worthy successor to its more crowded park closer in town, which for two years running we haven't been able to get into at all. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dripping Springs now holds the distinction of being the Wedding Capital of Texas! Plenty of lovely venues, event planning and so on exist to make your day special. Texas Olive Co. us on Fitzhugh Road - grab some award winning olive oil there. Plus - breweries, wineries and distilleries, oh my! Love Deep Eddy, Treaty Oak, Twisted X, and Jester King Brewery, all nearby.

This park is in a wooded area with a super walking trail. The manager is great. There is only one shower and toilet. The water taste terrible and leaves white spots. There is no cell phone service and no cable. An antenna will get some channels. Some sites are shaded, some are not. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is about 13 miles to downtown Dripping Springs, Tx. Nice and clean park with mostly live ins but all sites occupied appeared well kept. Owner was very cordial and showed us to our site and helped us get set up. All sites are gravel with full hookups and had a picnic table. Nice landscaping around our site #28. Park is currently building more sites. Excellent broadband WiFi. AT&T cell service almost non-existant. We will stay again!! We stayed in a 38ft motorhome.

This part of Texas is in drought and the park reflects the lack of rain by dust and very little vegetation. Most of the shade is taken up by long timers. The park is big rig friendly but there are a lot of low branches that need to be trimmed. The internal roads and sites are gravel. The utilities are adequate. This is not a destination park. The staff is accommodating and friendly. We won't be back. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for three months at the monthly rate. This park is very nice and about 10 miles to the closest town. The park is well kept and the neighbors are all quiet but sociable and friendly. All the facilities are kept clean and in good working condition. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for a month. Owner was so helpful and very nice. It is a beautiful park with lots of space between sites. We had some great neighbors. Owner said they would be putting a pool in for next summer. This would make the park perfect! The only negative is cell phone reception. If you are on vacation, this might be a plus!

Very clean park. When we were there I'd say it was 95% snowbirds and mature couples, i.e., very quiet. Our spot was closest to the road and a little vehicle traffic noise, but not to where it was bothersome. There was also 27 acres behind the camping spots with walking trails which we totally enjoyed. Would I stay there again? In a heartbeat. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was my first time out in the trailer, and I truly enjoyed my stay! The owners of the park, which may have changed now, were extremely helpful. They helped me back the trailer up, gave me pointers (but not too many!) about the hookup process, and answered all of my questions. They stopped by to check on me, offered assistance, and were just very nice. The grounds were very quiet, the walking trails were abundant and located on the premises. I stayed with my two dogs who enjoyed it as well. My only compliant was no water access; however, I knew that going in, and we made do with the conveniently located water activities all over the area!

Wonderful Place! The host was so wonderful and friendly. The park is super clean and has character. The back sites look very peaceful. We stayed up front and there was a little noise from the street. The laundry facility was so clean and inexpensive. I really have nothing bad to say about it. There are nice walking trails, too. We will be back for sure and recommend it.

This was only our second RV trip. We really enjoyed this campground. Small, quiet, peaceful. Just what we wanted. The owners were wonderful and very helpful. We plan to return this fall in order to spend more time outdoors when it is not so hot. A great home base for touring several of the hill country cities and sights. We loved the walking trails through the woods. What a nice perk! Thank you owners for taking such good care of us! We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This lovely RV park was quite a terrific find. We needed a home base close to Austin. Dripping Springs is just west of the city with easy access to all Austin highlights. Some of the sites are nicely shaded and situated on a charming little creek. Although there is no pool or lake, the serenity and charm make up for the lack of “Resort” style facilities. As a matter of fact, we left Cottonwood Creek to spend some time further west at a much larger RV Resort that had cabins for some visiting friends. The big place was just “OK” and we wished we were back at the Creek. The magic of this property can be found on the walking trails that are lovingly tended by the owner. They are mulched with cedar, making the paths aromatic and soft underfoot. A delightful nature walk by anyone’s reckoning. Wildlife was abundant. I even saw a coyote! If you have kids, you might want to go elsewhere, but if you want a great place for quiet grown-ups… here it is. This Park will be our Home every time we visit the Austin area. Highly recommended. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

I've been trying for sixteen years to convert my wife to an avid RV'er. Our wonderful stay at Cottonwood Creek did the trick! We will return soon to enjoy the beautiful park, the friendly hosts, and fellow campers! The 'Woods' behind the park are wonderful for kids of all ages to wander around in! And we love the quiet, simple atmosphere! The owners of the park couldn't be nicer, nor could our fellow campers. Many are repeat and extended stay campers at Cottonwood Creek! We will return soon!

What a wonderful park! What it lacked in amenities (showers, pool), it made up for in charm and friendly service. Newer park and very clean. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but it was perfect for a nice, quiet getaway. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very pet friendly. A must stay if you are in the Austin, TX area!

The rate was based on the monthly fee. We stayed a month and hated to leave. This is a wonderful little park with nice spaces and a walking trail through the woods. The park and laundry room is kept clean and neat at all times. The owners live on site and do enforce the rules: none of which we found unreasonable. Unlike the previous review, we found them very likable and fun to be around. They are helpful and willing to share their knowledge with those of us with less experience, without being intrusive. The only downside to our visit was the poor phone reception and in our case we only needed to go a few steps up the hill. It is not a question of when we will be back but when. A great experience for us. We camped at Cottonwood Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
