This is the fourth visit to this park. I have reviewed it before and it still remains a good, clean park with friendly staff. Big rig pull thrus for longer rigs across from the pool. 45 footers with toads will fit with no problem but all pull thrus will require leveling side to side and front to back due to sloop of site. One nice touch is the gate entry is now working and requires code to enter which has quieted the park down considerably. Bastrop is 10 miles east with all the amenities of a big city. They also honor PPA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good park about 10 miles from Bastrop, which has all the stores and eating places that Austin has. Also has a historic old town area worth a look. Park hook ups work well as they should and park staff are courteous and helpful. Long pull thrus close to office are gravel and fairly level. Quite a few long term/permanents on the back side and west side. Exxon/Mobil C-store 1/2 mile east and real good moderately priced BBQ shack (Benny's) toward Bastrop on north side of 71. Only negative is that speed limits are not observed in the park - mostly by the permanents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was very friendly when we called broken down on the side of the highway. Good Sam had a wrecker on the way, and we selected Hwy. 71 as the destination for the tow. Came in the front gate on a flatbed with trailer in tow on the hook. Went directly to first site set aside for us and proceeded to repair our trip. Shower/restrooms were very clean, pool wonderful, washing machines were clean and large with waiting area at the office. We can't complain about a thing as highway noise is part of travel. Gated for security and clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for thirty three days. The monthly rate is $335 plus you pay your own electric bill. Ours came to $40, so it works out to about $12 a night. The park is clean,quiet, and friendly, with mostly long term folks. Nothing fancy, but the restrooms and showers were always clean,the cable TV and Wi-Fi were always available, and for the price, I had to give it a ten rating. It's about ten minutes from Austin or Bastrop, and less than five minutes to the "Hit the Spot Cafe," the best mom and pop restaurant we've ever eaten in. We'll be coming back here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
WiFi worked great. Showers very clean and new but no soap dishes in stalls except for one. Staff very friendly and helpful. The soap dish is the only minor compliant I can think of. Would stay here again if I had to. Easy parking of our 5th Wheel in the pull through space. Secure gate that's closed except during morning hours when residents are going to work. We stayed here for 2 weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this park twice now. Both times we had trouble leveling our coach as the spaces are like a cat's back. Office personnel are extremely nice and accommodating. The showers, restrooms and pool area are modern and very nicely done. Our last stay we had issues with their leach field making the entire place smell of sewage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
HORRIBLE! I went to visit this RV Park in the possibility of staying here as a winter Texan. When I got here, the campground looked very untidy, crowded, and there seemed to be a lot of confusion with parking from the residences who were staying here. The woman I spoke with (who I assume was the owners' or the hosts' wife) was the most RUDE person I think I have ever dealt with anywhere! She seemed very suspicious of my questions that I was asking her about the campground (how the showers were, different rates for sites, etc.) and gave me the "I don't think we will have room for you" runaround when I mentioned that I would like to stay for a few months. She was over-the-top with her rudeness when I mentioned my dog and she made it very clear that they do not like pets over 25 pounds here. In all, the most unpleasant experience I have ever had in dealing with a RV campground, and I could see it being a very big problem with anyone under the age of 45 to stay here. (You can see the emphasis on "retired" couples here.) Due to the service alone, I say avoid at all cost! CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TERRIBLE! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here on two separate occasions. The owner and staff have always been very accommodating and friendly. This park has a menage of sites and trailers. Many of these sites are long term residents but are very friendly. Most spaces are large and roomy. The facilities are kept very clean with hours to accommodate their customers. (laundry, showers, workout room) This is a gated park which feels like a country setting. It is convenient to Austin, San Marcos, and Bastrop. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is at monthly rate of $300.00 plus electric. Gated park. Nice long spaces, staff is friendly. Here to visit family so it was close to Austin. Park is keep clean, laundry room is nice only $1.25 to wash. Workout room is separate fee. Only negative is they have sticker burrs so don't walk in the grass. Also no picnic tables. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just spent six weeks at this park and found it very adequate for our needs. We tend to spend a lot of time clubbing in Austin and our usual park (Oak Forest) was full, so we decided to try staying a bit further out of town; however, because the park is on Hwy 71, the commute time was only a few minutes more, though the mileage was about 10 miles further. At this time, most residents are long-term stays as a result of heavy construction work in the Austin area. While I recognize that some RVers tend to turn their noses up at parks with high percentages of full-time residents, the controls in this park are such that everyone was very courteous and we neither observed nor heard any behaviors that were bothersome. Those staying just a few nights are positioned in the front of the park and somewhat isolated from the other residents. Management is friendly and willing to go the extra mile. There is a security gate. Wi-Fi and cable work well and a satellite system would work well from most sites. There's a lovely Hyatt Resort (Lost Pines) just a mile or so away if you feel like going out for a nice meal in a nice atmosphere and you might also want to try the pork ribs at Benny's BBQ just down the road. We will be returning for another stay in a few months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad RV park but when we came in they did not give us a choice of back-in or pull-thru. I feel they did this because we were Passport America (getting 50% off), so they put us in the most expensive site, which was a pull-thru. We would have been okay with a back-in as we have done in other parks. Just feel like they wanted to get more money (as there were many other sites available). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff, held my reservation without deposit. Sites have different layouts, but ours was a pull thru, pretty level, gravel, wide and open. Shade in other areas. Roads are paved with plenty of room to maneuver. Good voltage and water pressure, but sewer location was for something other than a TT. Not much Hwy 71 noise even though the park is next to the highway. Lots of extended stays, but the management seems to dedicate different areas for long and short stays. Gated and fenced. Pool, showers, playground and other amenities for the family. Big stores and restaurants near by. We will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very nice park to stay at with easy access and good size sites. The staff was helpful and friendly. The only negative I can say is the road noise during the day. At night, this was one of the quietest RV parks we have been at. Bastrop is 6 miles to the east and has all the stores you would need to shop at. Laundry was $1.25 to wash and $1.00 to dry. We would stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When you first pull into Highway 71 RV Park you see new asphalt drives, a nice club house and a clean office, which gives you a good first impression. When you enter the office, you find polite and friendly office staff, and your second impression is a good experience. So, you get back into your rig and start the drive to your assigned site. But as you make that drive the scenery begins to change, and you find yourself wondering: “is this an RV park, or a low income housing project.” Most of the “campers” are permanent residents. The majority of the RVs consist of old trailers with junk all around, attached homemade sheds, chicken wire pet pens, permanent decks, and whatever else one can possible think of to build and nail to an RV. The roads throughout the park are time-beating asphalt or dirt. Many are more like trails than roads. The sites are packed dirt and rock, but seem to be pretty level. Luckily we had no rain during our stay. You will learn to respect the massive infiltration of sand bur stickers. Starting out I was assigned site 127, a new site located way in the back. When I arrived at the site I found the trees to be too low for my 5th wheel to get under. I called the office and they quickly reassigned me to site 84, a back-in site at the pond. WIFI didn’t work on the first night, but worked most of the time during the rest of our stay. We stayed 3 nights. The daily rate is $25, so it is affordable. I don’t want to waste a bunch of time blogging about this park, it would mostly be negative and I’m not in the mood. If you are looking for cheap rent, this is the place for you. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The newer part of the park has large shaded sites. The Wi-Fi worked well. The rest rooms were clean, as were the showers. The swimming pool was nice. The pad site was fairly level, they were gravel. The roads were in the process of being paved. The park seems to have a lot of long term rentals. Overall the park is very nice. The park also has laundry facilities and a meeting hall, both of which we did not use. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure of nightly rate, their web site appears to be unavailable at this time. I feel very crowded here. Trailers seem to be packed in next to each other. The park has evidently been here a long time, ... bottlecaps, broken glass, etc. pushed into the dirt, no paved driveways I can see and certainly not landscaped. Excellent cable TV, about 70 channels. WiFi reliable but slow. Office, laundry room, rec room, pool, clean. Lower-class than I am accustomed to. Very good monthly rate. Friendly management and staff. I'm not particularly impressed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good RV Park, Owners are pretty friendly, fairly close to Bastrop and Austin. The drawbacks are having to be near the highway, which can be noisy. The parking isn't up to par. You have to hope your automobile doesn't get sideswiped by somebody who doesn't know how to drive or back with a trailer. The campground does have showers, laundry, and a recreation room. The buildings are pretty nice. The campsite is great for people who are in construction. We camped here in a Motorhome.
More a 6.5 at best. The pros - friendly hast at checking, pull thru site with concrete pad, some trees for shade, and good rate based on 1 wk stay. The cons - restrooms are individual and are clean but who builds restrooms without providing soap or paper towels?. Concrete pad is nice but only works for a mid door rig. For our rear entry, by the time the door was on the wide part of the pad it took every inch of my double length sewer hose to reach the sewer connection at the back of the site. My sewer objection was 6 in above ground though I did notice other sites had ground level connections located more to the middle of the site. Lots of long term residents though they appeared to be well kept for the most part. Sports fields from the high school next door have a major drain which runs thru the middle of the campground as well. OK for an overnight stay but wish I had checked other options in the area before committing to a week here. From driving by several other parks in the area it seems some of them would have been better choices. Will probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with the previous reviews. This is a very nice park, but not a 10 since it lacks many things that are standard elsewhere. No picnic tables, most sites are gravel, only bathroom is at the entrance to the park but is beautiful. The owner is extremely nice and made arrangements to turn on cable for the week we stayed there. No junky long term sites. Very convenient access to highway. I definitely recommend this as a place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects a $325 monthly rate, electric is separate. The park owner is awesome! She makes you feel at home. Park is clean. Laundry room was clean. Wi-Fi did cut in & out sometimes. RV park is located close to Bastrop, shopping, and is 23 miles south of Austin. Our site was spacious and level. There are a couple of sites that are cement. No playground, so not much for kids to do. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a park bought by the new owners in the end of 2011 and has only been open December 2011. The owners and their son are very helpful and friendly. There are some site pads with concrete, most with gravel/grass. The driveway and camp roads are a little uneven in spots. We parked our 31' motorhome on a gravel/grass site and needed only minimal leveling. The park is about 20 miles east of Austin just off of Hwy 71, but there is only a little bit of road noise since the campsites are set back from the road. The Wi-Fi connection was lightning fast. The bathrooms are new and kept very clean. A laundry facility with exercise machine was available, but we didn't use it. We stayed here a week and would definitely come back if traveling to Austin again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
