We've stayed here quite a few times, There are discounts, however we checked in late on a holiday weekend without staff in the office. There are not a lot of choices in the Austin area, and this one is getting a huge addition. We come here because of the location to downtown. We are quite familiar with Austin and don't need GPS to get around like someone from out of town/state/country might. Which why assume some people talk about "construction" or "busy" roads. All roads in Austin a busy, especially at the more used RV parks. Take my word for it when I say you will not find a better kept park in the area, state or privately owned park. Another pool is being added as well as another section to the park, it looks quite large and will probably change its name to Oak Forest RV Resort soon. I remember the previous owners and cheaper prices, but those days are gone, just like most other larger parks. However we needed a place to stay, we called, left a message not expecting to get a call back, but they called us back, on July 3rd to tell us they were booked. About an hour later they called back saying one site opened up for one night. They could have easily written us off due to it being the 4th weekend, but didn't. This was all happened after 5:00 pm. There was no price hike like some other parks due to the holiday weekend. Our site was pull through with some shade across from the pool. The park has some full-timers and winter Texans, but most of those are located towards the back of the park. Heat index was 106, the pool was plenty cool enough and will some shade it was okay to be outside. We will be back. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

This should be a great place, based on its construction but, grounds keeping is poor, rules are many, staff is uninformed, lazy, remote and less than friendly. The short term site are long, beautiful, paved pull thru. Hook ups work well. There is a very large section of long term residents, separate from the short term sites. A huge addition to the short term section is being constructed. There is a nice pool, but no playground. We saw no children. There were a number of high end rigs. This place could be amazing. But it needs to grow up. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Although Oak Forest was my "go to" RV park in Austin for years, I don't stay there as often as in the past. Rates have increased beyond value, and management is cold (however, the staff is always helpful). They are in the process of expanding all the way out to Decker at a cost that must be enormous. So, I guess they need the additional income. Still easy ingress/egress, with nice, long, paved sites that have a reasonable amount of space between them. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent a week here while visiting family. There was a lot of noisy construction going on while we were here as they're adding a LOT of additional sites to the park. Navigating through the park is tight in places but doable. We had a front row spot. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It's Austin! Too many places to see and too much to do. We were visiting family and had occasion to go downtown a couple of times. Austin is a unique city but the traffic is horrid and you literally "can't get there from here" in so many instances. Takes forever to get somewhere due to having to go past, u-turn and and go back. Crazy street designs.

Big rig friendly with concrete pads. Showers and laundry were good. Dog park was small but good for letting dog off lease. Small pool, small exercise room and book exchange was okay. Campground was good for walking with the dog. any activities were over for the season. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

70 percent seasonal campers. Small residential size pool, medium size hot tub. They are expanding the campground but the construction noise wasn't noticeable. Clean laundry $1.50 washer and dryer. Picnic table at our site was old and falling apart, others looked better. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a good stay at the park. Quiet at night. The park is currently expanding so during the day the construction machinery noise was noticeable. The concrete pad was narrow as others have noted. The park advertises free cable, but receiving cable stations requires using a cable box, which is free for the daily rate, but I was told that they didn't have any more cable boxes available and there were probably 6 empty daily rate sites available. We were able to receive several over-the-air TV channels. We camped here in our Motorhome. We will consider returning to this park. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

We are a younger family with 2 kids ages 8 and 10 so it really wasn't the perfect campground for us. It is mostly for older folks. The location was ok to visit Austin, but definitely not ideal. The campground is very clean and easy to get to. Hot tub is nice. Highly recommended for older travelers. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice park on the east side of Austin. Easy in and out of the park with plenty of pull through sights with easy connections mid ship. No issues with power or water. The park was in the middle of landscaping/construction and equipment was in use during our visit. Nothing intrusive and noise did not start until 830 am. No noise noted through the night. No security gate noted. Park does not appear to be old and was fairly full during our January visit. I made the reservation the afternoon of the visit for that night with no issues encountered. I would return to this park again. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Austin has food, shopping and nightlife and known for being 'weird'. Which they appear to be proud of on their literature. Its a good city to investigate.

Large park - now owned by major corporation making a lot of changes & improvements. Pool very small therefore water warm in August.

Office staff friendly but not very flexible. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Planning on visiting Austin, easy trip into Austin. I don't know about traveling into Austin if you don't have your own ride. I guess taxis would come out, but seems like it would be expensive. Close to lots of eclectic restaurants.

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. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is o.k. if you need access to town district of Austin, located east of 35 & west of the tollway. Concrete pads are very narrow & ours was sloped at the nose. Needed to wash coach & tow, but be aware that Austin is big on water conservation, & could not wash coach. Wifi was adequate & trash pickup was daily. Might stay here again. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for three nights. It was an OK experience. The sites are long but very narrow. A little tight for a bug rig. The facilities are very nice. We enjoyed the hot tub and used the laundry. All nice. It would have been nice if the concrete sites were wider. Our step went out to the dirt. That made a mess. Some sites have grass. Ours as not so much. We'd stay here again but, don't get too excited about it. Big rigs are OK. You might need to cut a corner short. Their streets are way too narrow. But we are about 70 ft.

FYI. The place is primarily full time rentals. But they have done a nice job of separating us from them. If you walk back into the full time area it it absolutely disgusting. But you do t need to do that. Up front is very nice.

Don't hesitate visiting Austin from this park. It's an alright place to stay. And Uber is there now! We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.
