Stayed here for one night while passing through the area. We called about mid-day on a Sunday and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. We arrived well after the office closed and our package was waiting with everything we asked for. Long gravel pull-throughs with lots or room for 40' TH and Ram dually. All utilities in good position and worked well. No cable (due to a problem with the cable provider), but there were a ton of over the air stations available. A lot of trees, so good shade (but iffy satellite).
Close to I-35, but no noise. This was a good park and it is VERY convenient to all that Austin has to offer. - FireFlyer

Site are clear well maintained, but very close together, no cable even though they advertised it. Very good free Wifi. Interior road are tight. Traffic to and from the park terrible. - Nevadadon

Terrible place to find, payed by envelope, graveled sites. Did not use any of the facilities(if there were any). Larger M/H's or TT's beware, somewhat difficult to get into. Only reason we chose this was that we had reservations at the Renissance Hotel and needed a place to keep electric to our fridge. Way overpriced! - Never Lost

It took us about 30 minutes to find the park and then we had to go through a very poor and dilapidated old neighborhood to get to it. When we drove into the park, we saw that there was only one site available. Grass and weeds were grown up all over the place. There were loose cats running around. It looked like a junk yard for travel trailers. We stayed only one night because we were afraid to stay any longer. This park really is unclean. The pictures on their webpage must be their fantasy because it looks nothing like what they portray it to be. If you don't believe me, have someone else go there and write a review. The laundry was in a shed and had only one old washer and one old dryer. If it rained, you could not do your laundry because the roof of the shed had holes in it. I would not recommend this park to anyone at all. - Kathianne

Basically, this is a long term park. Advantage is that it is close to Austin and Round Rock amenities. Rates are all inclusive for long term stay, that is $450 a month includes all utilities and Wi-Fi. There are no amenities such as club house, pool, organized activities and the like. Mostly it is workers staying here for close in access. - inflt48

This is a test review. We liked this park. It was fun to stay here. - Texasrvers

We stayed in the gated area of the park and inn for two days. Our slot was by the small laundry. Sites were nice with trees and grass. The lake is close by. Folks were friendly, and my site was a back in site, and the staff was very helpful getting it safely docked. The rating reflects that while the campground is nice, it is expensive for the services delivered. Cautions: There are no circuit breakers on the power dock. Note there is no store, restroom/shower facilities, or propane, and the cost is higher than we are used to. This is a mixed community of long and short termer's. - RealMcCoys

We stayed here for 2 months. CG managers on site and helpful. Very scenic hill country area of suburban Austin and convenient to Downtown (20 min.) Some good wide and deep shaded sites and others are little tighter, but most are excellent. Paved CG roads, and good grass areas at sites. Lots of full timers here with dogs, whose owners do not clean up after. We have large dog and scoop every time. Other extended stay owners don't seem to abide by same rules which were stressed to us at sign up. Wi-Fi reception is OK depend on location and tree cover. No LP gas available at CG. In motorhome have to disconnect and travel 7 miles to get, very inconvenient. No CG store and need to travel only 1/2 mi. to store. Laundry clean and newer units, 3 wash and 3 dryers. No other amenities at CG, but would camp/stay again. - wldbysmx

Very nice spot with great staff. Though it doesn't have public bathroom, shower, store, & propane gas. It's got large grass area and trees. Close to downtown Austin. The foggy morning in this park is breathtaking. The fogs are so thick and you find your own RV yet, it is so beautiful. We will definitely come back. - airstreamnyc

This park is great, plenty of spaces, bath house, laundry, 2 pools, pavilion with clubhouse fitness room and trash pickup.
Plenty of friendly staff. - SBJ

Usually we have pull through but this time we had a pull in/back out site. They face the pool area and it was a week end. Not a good choice. Get used to everyone taking a short cut through your site. Site was easy in and out and unlike some of the pull throughs, not too far off level to the front. It is a nice park but now is part of the Sun chain so time will tell. - peddy dick

I visited during the very busy season and the ladies in the office worked very hard to accommodate me. I stayed at this park 4 years ago and it was great. Now it is owned by a national company and it is still great. There were many improvements, but I don't know if they were done before or after the national company took over. The staff works hard to make your stay enjoyable and I have nothing but positive memories of my stay. - startech

First off, the park is clean and beautiful. It's perfectly located near Austin and we enjoyed our stay. There were a few issues that prevented me from giving it a "10".
1) The park rate is $20, but each non-Texas resident who doesn't have a park pass pays an extra $6 per stay. That adds up.
2) The visitor center was closed for repairs.
3) The entrance store was being worked on, so most of that was closed too. We couldn't even buy a fire starter there.
4) Part of the park was flooded out and we were not able to see some things we wanted to see.
5) Our site was not very level at all. Many were, but not ours.
Oh, +1 for the nice programs they have. We liked the full moon hike we did. - The Bees

We had 30 amp service and water. Like many state parks, we did not have sewer or cable, but for $20 it is still a good value. There are nice hiking trails/ Onion Creek and the falls are pretty and the park is well maintained. The only hidden cost is if you do not have a season pass then there is a $6 per day per person usage charge so if you are just staying a few days then the net cost is a little higher than the $20 advertised rate. If you are spending much time in Texas State Parks then the best idea is to buy a Season Pass. - wildcat77

Spots were spacious. We had a nice view of the lake from our spot. We were there when it was fairly empty so had our pick of spots. A lot were for smaller campers, but they easily fit big rigs too. The only thing we noticed was that some of the spots were sloped, so it might be kind of tough to level it out. We didn't walk to the waterfalls, but understand there are some nice hikes around. They also had wifi by the guard house, which is unusual a state park, but it seems to be usual for Texas state parks. There were picnic tables and fire pits. While there wasn't a walk down to the lake, the road to get there was close and you could fish from it. There is a daily park fee. We ended up buying a yearly pass, which cost us less in the long run. - dorcol

This is an old park with lots of permanent residents. However, we found that all the facilities worked, the families there were quiet and pleasant to be around. Lots of children, but very well controlled. Laundry room was large, clean and well equipped. Price was excellent for the area. Our Verizon worked well here, so we didn't use the WiFi. However, there is WiFi for free in the park if you can get it. We could not as we were in a back row. We paid for a week and the price reflects that. - TravelingAdams

Turn around and run. Staff is jittery and the park is full of long term residents with little pride in their environment. Amenities are far from most sites and there is no common area. Scary chain link fence surrounds the property that is adjacent to the freeway. - AliRV

The management was friendly to us and our site was easy to find, right in front. Location is convenient to downtown Austin (basically a 10 minute drive to the Capitol) and is fairly urban, so it's probably better suited to use as a "home base" for those looking to explore Austin than a park to spend much time in. Our site wasn't a pull-thru but was easy to back into. Lots of long-term residents in the park, it appeared, but they all seemed friendly. We didn't think the noise level was bad, though it's not far from the airport and it is located on a major road, so light sleepers may have a different experience. Again, if you're just looking for a home base, this worked well for us for the 2 nights we were there - it was easy to come and go, and we didn't have any problems. I will warn you though, bathrooms and showers aren't necessarily "dirty", but are a pretty beat-up...we used the trailer instead. - MMCalifornia

This is about the best RV park in and around Austin. Well manicured, everything is kept clean. Showers are my favorite of any RV park. Like being in a hotel. Really large, private and plenty of space. We've stayed here numerous times, but I haven't reviewed it in a few years. This place is almost a 10, almost. New management since last time I was here. It's now managed by Roberts Resorts. The online map site numbers are incorrect.
Pros: Close to Austin, Wifi strong, Secure, all amenities are kept up, Management is friendly, They sell bags of Ice, Level sites, lots of shade. Cons: The pool...It is beautiful, clear, clean, secure and super-heated. I measured the temperature at 101 degrees. There is a hot tub above the pool with water cascading into the pool. They told us due to the size of the pool it just gets hot during the day. Wrong. We have a pool and hot tub at our house. I've been to Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and live in Texas...the pool they have here is heated. Almost no one used it the entire time we were there. maybe that's what they want. It was a bit of a disappointment. The pool was unusable. Lastly gas grill needs an upgrade, it needs to be trashed and replaced with a something that is not rusted out. Lastly the cable system. Yes the cable is free, but you have to hook up one of their cable boxes, it is free to use, but a bit of a hassle I thought.
Really those cons are small, I rarely use the Gas grills at RV parks but they told us they had one to use, it was dangerous to use. If I was planning on using the a pool in the summer I would not come here. But if a pool doesn't matter to you this place can't be beat. - mikel

Park is very clean. Transients park on very long and level concrete pads. Trash is picked up each morning at your site. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi is excellent. Park is very convenient to downtown Austin. - Rd yacht

Location to Down-Town Austin, University of Texas and their sporting events/buildings are very good. Improvements to the Campground facility itself is being made, I hear new management (?). We did not venture off beyond our campsite, the restroom/shower facilities, office and dog park, therefore I cannot comment on the alleged abundance of full-timers. I will say that this park provided everything we needed and wanted, full hookups, and clean facilities. If our next trip to Austin is based upon University of Texas sports and/or Austin Arts and Entertainment, this will be our first call. Only downside was that it is close to Manor, and not the best side of town. The closest grocery store is a HEB. It should have everything that you would need produce and grocery wise, flip-side is that it is located in a rough side of town. - stlucia

This campground is just a few blocks from downtown Austin. We walked 1.5 blocks, and across the bridge to a fabulous, funky city with lots to see and do. The campground is primarily for full time residents. In fact there are only 12 spots (8 full hookup, and 4 electric and water only) that are ever rented on a daily or weekly basis. That said, the park manager insures that the facility is quiet and safe. We did not use the restrooms, showers or laundry. All were dirty, run down and gross. It appears the current owners realize they are sitting on a gold mine. If it weren't for new building ordinances which curtail the height of new construction and a few heritage trees this land would likely be an apartment building like next store. - Ncw

Within walking distance of downtown Austin....tons of music venues and parks with hiking trails all within walking distance. Plus fabulous restaurants....if you have a hankering for civilization...this park will put you close. The park feels very safe and has a few spaces kept for overnighters...the rest are permanent residences. Very quiet at night & very friendly. Verizon coverage excellent, but their wifi (we were told) is slow...we did not try just used our hotspot. Driving & parking here is not for the faint of heart...very tight make sure you plan your route ahead and come on Sat or Sun for less traffic. We had a pull thru close to the front & our rig is 32 ft . Great dog walks! - chasing60

You stay here because of the location. Just on a side note this RV park has 93 sites, is larger than the "14 sites" implies. Maybe they only have 14 sites available for use. We drove through the entire park and there were open sites here and there. We're in Austin a lot so we were aware of the park condition, it's old and part of Austins pop culture. They haven't sold out yet to all the condos and apartment developers yet. We put "Didn't use" on restrooms because we couldn't get them to work, if we would have stayed longer we would have questioned it. We only stayed one night so we could walk to the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park and not have to mess with the parking. Lots of restaurants around and Thom's Market with in walking distance. You have to call for reservations. They do not have a website but do have a Facebook page. They did work with us, our motorhome is almost 40 feet and we got in. Owner was friendly. I'd come back just for the location. Yes there are lots of travel trailers and rvs that are permanent but it wasn't a problem. Our site was right next to the office and didn't have a site number on it. - mikel

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

We stayed at this park for about 5 months.
1. The staff goes out of their way to keep the place clean and decent looking. I realize that it's a hard job sometimes. Some will say they are way too strict with their rules and the enforcement of them. But in my opinion, if they weren't strict the park would turn into a dump within a day.
2. Location was central to everything we needed.
1. Location ( I know it contradicts my pros point but bear with me ). It is smack in the middle of two busy highways and minutes from the airport. You could literally see faces inside landing planes. Oh, and I don't know much about airport schedules but it seemed that the planes quit for the day around 11 PM and start at 4- 5 PM and you hear and feel ( vibration ) it all.
2. I don't know how about now, but back then when we stayed there the most bizarre thing took place weekly - the garbage truck would come by at 2 AM!! to collect garbage from numerous bins on the property. And let me tell you it was one of the loudest sounds I heard at night, ever. Louder than the airplanes. I don't know whose brilliant idea that was to schedule a garbage pick up right in the middle of the night but I hope they change it for their own sake.
There were some other issues, but they are minor. And, honestly after visiting almost all other parks in Austin ( we really wanted to move ) we realized that this one wasn't so bad after all. Again, mostly thanks to the staff being militant about the rules. - WhiteX3

Royal Palms is mostly a mobile home park with a section for RVers. The pros: Close to Austin proper, clean/well-kept property, great monthly rates, and strict guidelines for sites. The cons: It's right off the freeway so it can get pretty loud, The rules are strict and must be followed. I stayed here for a few months and enjoyed the convenient location and the price was right. If you want serene camping, this is not it. But if you want a nice base camp for exploring Austin, this is great choice. - riding_on_air
