This is a small, mostly residential rv park in downtown Austin. We only stopped here because we were having a vehicle problem and needed to get off the road ASAP. The park has pull thrus, the spaces are tight but you can extend your slides. Most of the park seems to be residential. WIFI was OK. The bathrooms are old but clean. The morning we were getting ready to leave we discovered a slow leak in one of the RV's tires and had to remove it and look for a Tire repair shop. The puncture turned out to be non-repairable and we ended up going to 4 tire shops to find a replacement tire. We it became apparent the we were going to be a few minutes late leaving (past the noon checkout time) the own was quite obnoxious when asked for an extension. He claimed he had someone coming that was getting that particular site. However there were at least 6-7 empty sites making that claim less than believable. We left at 12:20. So overall if you want to be right in downtown Austin this may be the place for you. Aside from the unpleasant owner it was OK. It is almost adjacent to a large downtown park on the River.

This park seems to be a failed resort type park. There is a swimming pool but it's locked up. The park itself is bare dirt, with sand spurs. All the sites are concrete paved pull-throughs. There seem to be many permanent residents with trash and junk all over the park. The restrooms were semi-clean but decrepit. Each site has a trash can hanging on a pole and a barbeque grill of the type usually found in state parks. Some of the power boxes have broken jacks and some of the water facets are broken. There is a row of empty FEMA type mobile homes.

Standard KOA, a bit pricey but has a lot of amenities. We planned to stay at La Mesa RV but had to wait one night for them to have an opening. The park is well landscaped with quite a few trees. The sites are level. Has a pool.

Nice little park with trees. Wifi worked. The owner was very nice.

Don't actually remember what we paid but it wasn't expensive. Just another western dirt parking lot. Sites level and pull thru. Owner was mostly gone when were were there but it was a Holiday period. WIFI needed to be reset but the owner was AWOL. We did not want to stay in Moab again since it is a overpriced tourist trap. Monticello is higher in altitude and cooler too.

This is a new park and it reminds me of the music park in North Florida (Spirit of the Suwanee). They have live bands for example. But whoever designed this park doesn't seem to be a RV camper. The roads are one way but not marked. They are narrow and have sharp turns. The sites have narrow concrete pads but the ground level is well below the pads which makes using an awning difficult. The breakers are in a water filled ditch. There is a lot of drinking going on. People with beer cans in hand in the pool even. Golf carts clog the roads, mainly driven by kids. Also, they want you to wear an armband the whole time you are here?! Our 30 amp breaker kept tripping. Complaining brought the advice: use the 50 amp plug. Asking if they had a dog bone adapter produced an adapter for 50 amps to 30 amps...worthless. When that was pointed out I got the mechanic's shrug. I finally went down to Walmart and bought an adapter for $18. I suggest passing this place by.

Great little park. Wide sites with trees. Very friendly staff. Wifi good. We showed up w/o reservations and they got us in, most of the sites were reserved but I think there was a local festival coming up on the weekend.

Small park right off exit 81 (I-40). They have pull thru sites. WIFI fairly good and strong. Friendly owners. We spent 2 nights here. If you are sensitive to noise the park is right off I-40 and the railroad is on the other side of the Interstate. KOA is right across the road so noise level the same there.

Nice small campground. About half the sites seem to be used by workers in the area but they were all quiet. The lady who runs this place wants cash, no plastic so be ready with the folding green when you get here. She told us to get cash and pay her in the next day or two when we didn't have that much cash on hand. Quite a few trees so most sites are shaded but otherwise just a parking lot.

Another dirt parking lot. Just a place to park when you visit the sand dunes. They have WIFI but you'll have to carry your notebook into the office to help getting it setup. I couldn't figure his instructions and I worked on computers since the time when they took up whole buildings. Some trash laying around the CG and the one trash can was overflowing.

Gravel parking lot with some landscaping. Sites were level. Has a gate but no boundary fence so the gate only stops people from driving in. Very nice couple runs the place and they live in one of the RV's onsite. Easy to drive to Taos from here and the owners will overload you with maps and such if you ask.

Basically a dirt parking lot with a few trees. But this is serious desert country. Sites are all pull thru with a lot of room. Run from the gift shop in the building out front. Very handy for the Big Ben NP entrance a few miles down the highway.

Basic campground. Pull thru sites. Friendly owner. Weekly rate cash only. WIFI OK. Tree shaded sites. About half the sites are long term workers but we had no problems with them. Good spot for four corner exploration. Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Monument Valley, Goosenecks SP and so on.

Date of Stay:

Basic park. Half the sites are under trees. WIFI weak and could not use at all for last 3 days of one week stay. Owners not to be found. That was the 4th of July weekend tho. Cooler than Moab and much less of the tourist town feel. Good spot for exploring Hovenweep, Canyonlands and other 4 corner sites.
