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

This park is not in good shape. The roads, a combination of dirt, mud when it rains, and asphalt, are in bad shape and very narrow. The turns are sharp particularly for bigger rigs. The concrete pads are the narrowest I ever seen. Most of the residents are permanent types that look like they have been there a long time. The $33 nightly fee is way over priced, more so for the people that are using the park to get service gone on their rigs at the dealer that owns the park. Seems a $10 nightly fee would be appropriate for travelers getting service done. There is a huge Cabella’s directly across the street and they have a sign there pointing to “RV parking”. If you need a stop over I recommend Cabella’s. Save the $33 for nicer parks. - Recon4

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

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

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

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

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

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
