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

Very crowded and close together. Lots of vehicles and stuff on individual sites due to "winter Texans" staying 3-6 months and permanent residents. They are building over 100 new pads, supposed to be finished July 2017. Lots of construction on roads around the park so though closer to downtown than some of the other parks, because of the construction it's about the same amount of time to get to your points of interest. Some noise from nearby highways. If you aren't interested in being in Austin for all the things to do, this may be a good park for you. Nice people in the park. - Billy2015

Kinda hard to rate this park. The rates are up and down depending on what's going on in Austin. If you really need a place to stay this place is okay. My wife called and tried to make a reservation and they said they were, "all booked up." I tried online and easily found a reservation. We generally stay at other parks in the Austin area, but they were full. We've been here before, but it's been a year or so. Sites were like a typical KOA in a large city. Roads a little narrow, but no problem to navigate. Sites are close but not on top of each other. Most sites have a picnic table and some have grills. Quite a few full timers in the back of the park. Looked like more of the front pull throughs were travelers. Pool looked clean, staff was very friendly electricity, cable, wifi were all fine. That's where it ended. The restrooms, men and women's were beyond filthy. No paper in the stalls this morning in the men's or women's. My wife described all of the women's stalls like all previous users had explosive diarrhea. It wasn't that bad in the men's side but it was close. As I was walking up a gentleman came out, kinda resembled a "hippie." He said, "I ain't puttin' my *&% on that, nasty." I went in, and yep. I checked all the stalls and immediately left. Sad, because overall the park is okay for where it is. Now, I will say this, there were construction crews sort of rebuilding the outsides and windows of the bathrooms and laundry facilities when we were there. But that's no excuse for this Carefree Resort to be left for residents to use. - mikel

We stayed at this park a few years ago and it went well. This time we had some issues but the park staff was great. They worked with our changing schedule and moved us to accommodate an issue that we were having. They are working on the park and will be upgrading a number of items. The only negative is the Austin Traffic and accessing I-35. So leave plenty of time. There is a fair amount of traffic noise towards the front depending on the time of day or night. We would definitely stay here again. - MOTOR1

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

A beautiful state park with large semi-private sites, nice trails, and close to "civilization". We stayed for two weeks (you'll have to make reservations early, as the park fills up on weekends) and enjoyed the park. Since the park entry fee is $6 per person per day, we purchased the $70 TX annual parks pass, which also included 50% off one night of our stay ($12 off). We stayed in the 50-amp loop which only has around 10 sites; the rest of the campground is 30-amp only. You choose your site when you arrive (when we checked in they suggested a site for us, but we ended up choosing a different one). Most sites (pull-throughs and back-ins) look like they could handle big rigs, but sites are not level at all and could be a challenge for longer rigs. Our site had great privacy but we needed lots of leveling blocks under our back wheels and jacks. The various campground loops are big enough for enjoyable dog walks, plus there are many trails around the campground and the rest of the park. Upper Falls is easy to get to via a paved trail, but dogs aren't allowed in the water. However several of the longer hiking trails require crossing the river at Lower Falls, so getting wet there is unavoidable (bring water shoes or extra socks). Our only complaint about the park is that the water at the showers was luke warm at best, but more often was uncomfortably cool. We gave up and took navy showers in our rig instead and visited the dump station halfway through our stay. While the park is close to lots of stores and restaurants, the park entrance is on the far side, so it does take 10-15 minutes to get anywhere, exiting the park and then driving all the way around it. We loved the seclusion and natural feel of the park, and will definitely return. - LifeRebooted

Rate reflects the campground cost of $24 plus the park cost of $6 per person per day. Texas parks charge the park entry fee in addition to the campground fee. This is a quiet park with easy access to Austin. For big rigs most all the spaces will accommodate you, however keep and eye on low trees. Spots are nicely separated with tables and fire rings. Although there is gravel on the site, leveling is a little challenging. We opted to be "nose down" slightly so we didn't have such a high step into our rig. There are pull thru and back in sites. Lots of trails to hike as well. No Wifi but good cell service. - mmhailey

This park was absolutely beautiful, the hiking and biking trails were great. We will definitely be back. We have a 42ft 5th wheel, so to be in a State Park with such a beautiful site and plenty of room to spare was great. TIP: BE AWARE OF THE HANGING TREES IF YOUR RIG IS ON THE TALLER SIDE. - 6971

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
