30 RV Parks near Camp Mabry Army Post, Texas
Mar 2014 - $18.00
I was here to attend an airshow event and had to park in an overflow area for two reasons. One is that the CG is completely full of permanents and the other is that sites are open only to active duty National Guard members. Retirees are not permitted. Even if that were the case, the park would not be on my list of acceptable campgrounds. There is only one authorized entrance to the military base and it is some distance from the campground. Most of the sites are for smaller RVs (30 ft or less) and many are un-level. It is more or less a sardine can with little room to maneuver into the sites. They do have full hook-ups and some shade. I did not see a bathhouse. Check in is at the lodging office and that is not well marked, which makes it difficult to find. Normal rates is shown, but overflow is free. - RLM

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

We drove through this park on a Saturday. There is another comment that they can accommodate a 40 ft rig. We never saw one that could accommodate anything larger than a 30 ft trailer if that. Although the price is good for the area, I cannot recommend this park unless you are ready for many people, lots of noise and very crowded conditions. We would not consider returning to this park. It is also quite a distance outside the main part of the city and not really handy for doing the tourist thing. - TravelingAdams

Nice, trees, grass with paved sites, but old. No pull throughs. Rate was for a lakefront site, non-lakefront (50 feet from the lake) was $20. Plus there is a $5 vehicle fee. TV reception was excellent. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon cell and broadband worked well. Quiet except for the invasion of boats Sat AM. We didn't stay on Sunday. Park gates close and are locked from 10PM to 7AM so don't plan on staying outside the park too late,or getting an early start! Twenty minutes or so to central Austin. We will return to take in more of what Austin has to offer. - rncordy

Great City park with 20 RV sites with water & 50/30/15 amp pedestals, and another 46 tent sites. Roads & Parking Spots are asphalt. Parking Spots are wide, but not real long. All are back-in. Tight Roads, but do-able. Entrance road has lots of hills and curves and is 2-lane. Roads could use some maintenance. Our site was right on the water at Lake Austin. We like staying there, just wish it was easier to get into. All sites are first come, first serve and there is an extra vehicle charge, $5 M-T, $8 F-S & Holidays. Get in mid-week & you should not have a problem getting a site. Check the sites before you pay to be sure you can fit if you are in a diesel pusher. - JIMNJAN

We have been extremely disappointed in this park. We were told our payment was lost, although the check had been cashed. Our power pole was in such terrible shape that it ruined both our plug and power converter. The property managers are unfriendly and very hard to get hold of. Many residents have dirty, junk filled sites. - Airstream in Austin

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

Old park that needs improvements. Only RV site on the lake with hook-ups, but the beach is all rock. Kind of pricey for the shape it is in. - fireball

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. - KJ4ZOY

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. - the2sharps

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. - Bburgbrewer

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

Bathrooms and showers are brand new, and they are working on the laundry room. Everything was great for our stay. - snrstang

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
