Park is very tight for a big rig. Severe speed bump at entry in the back row is capable of damaging your coach so careful not to make this turn until you check it out. Has considerable deferred maintenance on roadways. Check-in at dealership at receptionist, who also does about 5 or 6 other things to do for the dealership so be prepared to stand in line and then not really friendly. Do not blame her as she has other things to do and phones going off, than mess with us. Also, they need more help in all areas, including cleaning and maintenance throughout this park, particularly at the ridicules $33 a night. - fulltimer 2

Older park meaning that the streets are not adequate for maneuvering large units. Speed bumps approximately 100' apart throughout, one of which was so extreme we cracked our windshield crawling over it. Sites are 7' apart so we couldn't open our much needed awning as there is very little shade. Dumpster was located in the back corner at the end of a dead end street, really inconvenient. Dog park consisted of an open field but was free of soiled spots. Crowded at the time of our stay with mostly oilfield workers and extended stay units of all sizes and condition. Shower and laundry facility was adequate and maintained. Access from the interstate was good with Cabelas across the street. On-site camp host but he wasn't active and was bothered by my complaint about the speed bump. He wasn't available most of the time during our 4 day stay. Dealership provides good full service for most RV makes. We had recall work done at the shop and the attached park was more convenience than intentional. We would not stay here again. - wheels

We chose Austin Lone Star for its proximity to Austin. We paid a premium for a portion of our stay because SXSW was going on while we were there. The campground is located along the I-35 Frontage Rd. Both 35 and the Frontage Road were under construction during our stay there with cement barriers making campground entry and exit a bit difficult, but manageable. The construction meant that the traffic was unrelenting except early morning weekends and late overnight. Unfortunately there were numerous other issues with the campground itself during our stay. The pool was out of service for upgrade during our stay. No reduction was offered nor were we notified of the closure. While we were there, we experienced difficulties with power on the site. If this had been a short term issue, we would have been mildly annoyed, but we were not pleased when other long term campers informed us that this was a long term intermittent issue that had not been resolved. Finally, the campground security was a serious concern. While there, there were two incidents, one where the police conducted a multi-hour search for a suspect who had been sighted at the business next door to the campground. The second involved a theft on a site that occurred over many hours when someone from the nearby homeless encampment came in, clipped the lock and stole multiple bikes in individual visits. This was possible even while there were supposedly two security patrols in the campground and cameras in place. - NJTroy

Now owned Sun Resorts. Fenced pet area and dog friendly. Excellent Internet. No cable at this time, but over the air stations available and Direct TV worked. Escorted to your site, daily trash pickup. Gated with car pass. They are doing upgrades with bath houses and laundry. Mostly pull thrus and long term and permanent residents along perimeter and at rear of park. Workkampers on site. Passport America good for 2 days. Due to promixity to downtown it is a good value. I would stay here again. - Leslie Houston

Stayed 4nts in a pull-through. Site was roomy, level with easy access to the services. We did have an electrical issue with the 50amp, park staff were quick to resolve. This is a nice secure park with easy access roads, nice laundry & restroom facilities. There was some traffic noise from the I-35 but not too bad. The down side is the access to the park from the Frontage Road, which is 1-way and very busy. Looks like the City is trying to improve but unless you are familiar it can be a challenge. GPS systems not necessarily helpful. - Our-Wandering-Casa

I agree with JJ & CC review. I paid $685/month plus electric and includes cable TV. The location is good for getting into Austin - about 35 minutes away. The only thing around the park are fields. It is hard to find sites at certain times of the year around Austin and the hill country. So book early. - Dex

We have spent about a month here on and off since I sold my home in San Marcos. We stayed here a few nights last year. The park is relatively new and they have made many improvements in that year including the opening of the new pool this spring. The owner and his staff are all quite pleasant and accommodating. This is a large park with quite a few full timers towards the back, it has everything you would expect of a park this size, showers, fully stocked store, rv repair onsite. If you are lucky enough to get a spot by the 60 acre man made lake, the feel is more state park-ish which is what we enjoy. Oh and two large dog runs which are fenced... - Richard Belisle

A hard park to evaluate. Since this is a fairly new park, there is still a lot of minor construction activity. Finishing up the pool when we were there. Pads are concrete, not real wide, but long enough to park our car behind MH. Our site was sloped, as most were, but leveling was not a problem, just have to position RV in most level section of site. Utilities were all in good position, and good working order. Seems to be a lot of permanent campers, that are working in the area, but I think that is the norm with RV parks across the south. Owner and employees go out of their way to be helpful. Sites 97 thru 108 look to be choice sites. We had no picnic table. - JJ & CC

I enjoyed the golf course and the area very much. there were alot of things to do in the nearby towns.
The office staff was very nice. It has Pull through sites and 50 amp service. There was supposed to be WIFI but we couldn't figure it out. There was a swimming pool which was nice in the heat.
The spots were gravel with Lots of big trees giving you a lot of shade. The roads were paved around the campgrounds but there are a ton of pot holes so you have to be very careful. - houseofclarkes

I paid monthly and stayed for three months. The location and monthly price was a good value (which is why I listed 14 a night). The people who ran the park were very nice and courteous. The pool was out of order, and the wifi barely reached more than 10 feet from the main office. The park looked very trashy, because they did not require people to maintain their lots. I never used the bathrooms, but I am willing to bet they probably weren't that good judging from the appearance of the rest of the park. On the plus side they don't care about trailer age, trailer appearance, families, retirees, etc. All are welcome. If you aren't too superficial this park isn't half bad. - Swift_Strongarm

Stayed here one night. Check-in went fine once the reservation was found and clerk figured out we were not staying for a month. Our drive through spot was easy to find/get into. The CG has MANY full time in a myriad of rigs and their outdoor decorations, stuff or just plain junk greatly distracts from this CG. The roads are narrow, rough and curvy which made negotiating our 40' rig with towed, very difficult. Rate reflects the Passport America discount; this is not a $40 a night CG. I would not stay here again. - Monaco Bob

I was shocked by the additional fees required to camp included $6 per person per day and $5 per day for our car trailer made our total cost per night $41 for a site with no sewer and no senior discount. Quiet park with shaded roads and paths for biking or hiking. Waterfalls were beautiful and swimming is allowed there. Great location for visiting Austin, but pricey for a State Park. - Sunny Weathers

Very popular park due to close proximity to Austin. Close sites, plenty of trees, very helpful staff. We were allowed to change sites because we didn't fit in original site. This park was probably designed when RV's were smaller.
Family oriented park. - Semper Paratus

Excellent state park in Austin! The sites are huge. Most will accomdate any size rig. Many even have tent pads on them as well. We had no trouble with our 40' fifth wheel. We were in a pull out site and there were many back in sites that would have been just fine. The park was full and they are limited on 50 amp sites. Verizon works well in the area. Staff super helpful and friendly. The hiking trails are amazing as is the scenery at the falls. Great choice in the area for camping. - jnlo

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. - Ralph Hunt

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

The park is cramped but you can't beat the location. It is stressful to get to driving through city traffic and maneuvering within the park takes some planning. We had a little shade. Many of the other campers were permanent but very friendly. Expect street noise, trains, and music from nearby restaurants in exchange for being able to walk or take a bus to parks, trails, museums, and downtown. - Hikers

The price reflects the daily rate during SXSW (South By Southwest). Since hotel rooms were going for $400 a day, $100 a day seemed a better deal. We stayed for the entire SXSW festival -- 10 days. If you're planning on RVing to SXSW, Pecan Grove is the ONLY place to stay. While there are other RV parks, none offer the access to downtown Austin where SXSW takes place. You can walk to most of the events from Pecan Grove. Keep in mind that there are only a handful of sites available for daily rental in Pecan Grove. The other sites are occupied by monthlies. Also, while most sites off full hookups, there are only 6 sites that have 50A. Verizon 4G was 3 bars. If you get to the park after the trees have leaves (after March), forget about using your RV's sat dish. This is a funky park. Several of the monthlies appear to be well off as we saw a couple of Corvettes and an nice Audi. There's a Thom's Market down the block and plenty of places to eat nearby. - zulu

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
