Royal Palms is a Royal Pain! We have stayed there for three years now, but this year there is new management and they are atrocious. They are nasty and will lie to your face without a thought.

Parking? They decided to charge you for a sticker to park in the lot you have paid to rent. Then they will tow you if you park in the street or on the gravel in front of your trailer. The guy who took our space when we left told us he was towed before he finished setting up the trailer.

Early this year they raised the rent with no notice, then added a $23 fee for garbage collection, something what had been included in the rent. Then they informed us we had to rake the leaves and water the trees (with water we have to purchase from them!) or we would be fined.

Physically, the park is well kept and the neighbors are great, but save yourself a lot of grief and stay away from the Royal Palms. We camped at Royal Palms RV park in a Fifth Wheel.

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! We camped at Royal Palms RV park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Royal Palms RV park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It's Austin so it's hard to list all the awesome places. Costco, Whole Foods are close. Then there is a neatest place called Thinkery ( for kids ). Mighty Cone is amazing.

There is a nice park where you can walk right across Riverside street ( google map it ). Another awesome park is nearby off of Grove st right past the college. Just drive to the end of Grove street.

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. We camped at Royal Palms RV park in a Travel Trailer.
