This park is incredible! The spaces are huge, with some including your own stone BBQ table a and picnic tables. Most spots look over the private lake and encourage you to walk by the lake. Restrooms, showers and laundry super clean! Can't wait to stay here again! Owners have a real winner here! Pool, patios and too many amenities to say. What a find! - Wandering Worleys

We came for a week but stayed for a month. Such a wonderful campground with amazing owners/managers. The sites are very large and most have a view of the private lake. Level gravel parking spot, each with a cement pad the length of the site and 18 - 20 feet of grass yard between neighbors. There are 3 restrooms that are very nice and actually large individual rooms with shower, sink and toilet. They are locked so you need a key that you "rent" for $5 refundable per stay. They are immaculate as is the laundry room which has three new washers and dryers. There is a beautiful pool and spa but it is not heated so we didn't use them this time of the year. We had friends visit and they rented one of the cabins. Wow! They are all built by the owner who is a contractor and they are amazing, nothing rustic here. The rate reflects the monthly rate. We would definitely stay here again! - mikenchelby

Clean park but watch out for the extra charges, I did not know there was a deposit expected until I was already unpacked, and I did not know there was a 3% charge passed onto me for using a debit card; he prefers cash. The Wi-Fi only worked sometimes when I was there, but never fear, there is a McDonald's nearby. You could not walk 2 feet without getting stickers on your shoes, pants, or if you had flip flops that was dangerous walking across the grass. I didn't like the "find out as you go" rules, I never saw that rule about the 3% fee to use a debit card until I used one. I think this owner is new at the park thing and is not user friendly. So read all the rules before you check out, Oh and I never saw any creek water etc. while I was camped there. - tizwhizkid

Price reflects monthly rate. Our pull-thru site was long and spacious. However, after dumping air down to about 40-50 lbs and leveling, it caused the first step to be well off the ground requiring an additional step. The interior road was very rough and need potholes repaired. There are many long term rigs here and some don't keep their areas neat and orderly. In spite of Hwy 71 being very close, road noise was not bad. Office staff was polite and professional. - Monaco Bob

Our home park when we visit our children. Gated, clean, well run and managed park 10 miles east of Austin-Berstrom airport. We have stayed for a day or two and six weeks and it remains a very good park and good value if you stay weekly or monthly. Pull-through sites are long enough for motorhomes with toads and heavy duty trucks with the longer fifth wheels, which we have. The transient pull-through sites are in front just past the gated entrance and across from the swimming pool and individual shower rooms with showers, toilets, and sinks that are cleaned every morning. Utilities are placed in sites correctly and work properly. Verizon signal is spotty at times but 4G hotspot signal is strong. Good cable Time-Warner cable system with many channels. We recommend this park when you are in the Austin-Bastrop area. - xarmoreddriver

Rate based on one week stay. Management was friendly and efficient and all utilities worked flawlessly. Some pull through sites have concrete pads. Road noise was minimal. Interior roads in need of pot holes filled/graded. Grass in the common area around the office was mowed but, the sites were left in dire need of mowing. If stopping on the east side of Austin, we might stay here again. - Monaco Bob

More a 6.5 at best. The pros - friendly hast at checking, pull thru site with concrete pad, some trees for shade, and good rate based on 1 wk stay. The cons - restrooms are individual and are clean but who builds restrooms without providing soap or paper towels?. Concrete pad is nice but only works for a mid door rig. For our rear entry, by the time the door was on the wide part of the pad it took every inch of my double length sewer hose to reach the sewer connection at the back of the site. My sewer objection was 6 in above ground though I did notice other sites had ground level connections located more to the middle of the site. Lots of long term residents though they appeared to be well kept for the most part. Sports fields from the high school next door have a major drain which runs thru the middle of the campground as well. OK for an overnight stay but wish I had checked other options in the area before committing to a week here. From driving by several other parks in the area it seems some of them would have been better choices. Will probably not stay here again. - AZJC

I agree with the previous reviews. This is a very nice park, but not a 10 since it lacks many things that are standard elsewhere. No picnic tables, most sites are gravel, only bathroom is at the entrance to the park but is beautiful. The owner is extremely nice and made arrangements to turn on cable for the week we stayed there. No junky long term sites. Very convenient access to highway. I definitely recommend this as a place to stay. - Tom Rosser

We stayed here while visiting Austin. The park is OK. Mostly has seasonal and full time residents. Close to the highway so there was some highway noise. WiFi was not available at all sites. Park was OK for a stop over night but there are nicer places. - Jdawg

Stayed at the park for two nights because we have friends there. Road construction in front of campground was a nuisance. We have a motorhome pulling a cargo trailer. The dip from the road into the park was so deep that we dug a trench in the road with the trailer hitch. They are going to open up the frontage road so the going in and out of the campground will be much better while they finish the construction. Wi-Fi was not available for the side of the park we were on. - ob's place

The place is absolutely gorgeous. A real country feel to it. The spots are not paved, but they are level. There are lots of trees and a fishing pond. Barb's miniature horses and donkeys are a real attraction. She's proud to show them. We had a wonderful time and really didn't want to leave. - Catfish.Adam

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

This is the most decrepit park that I have stayed in since I have been traveling in a motorhome! This was probably a nice park way back when, but there has not been any maintenance in years. The facility is filled with rundown trailers with "stuff" all around them and weeds growing under. Trash was never picked up while we were there and the bins were running over! It did have FHU so that was a plus. The road leading in is full of potholes. No checks or credit cards, cash only! We had to stay there as we had a maintenance problem that was resolved on Saturday. I would not recommend this park to anyone! - oniedu

We did not stay here. I checked out the park two weeks before the Austin F1 race. At that time the gravel road into the park looked like a war zone (some of the potholes appeared to be a foot deep) and I was afraid that it would twist my coach's chassis. The price quoted me seems high for the condition of the park; it was basically a pasture with gravel roads. The sites were large and quite spacious. The park is close to the highway, but there did not seem to be much traffic on the road. - sccatech

OK for overnight stop. Open field with gravel/dirt roads. We were led to our site. Water & power OK, didn't use sewer for 1 night. Rooftop dish worked, few trees, and Sprint cell & hotspot worked. Several families, few with children, are living there. Quiet. - big greg

This place is on a golf course, and I see why it is desirable to live on a gold course. All of the grass is mowed to be pretty and pleasant. No fire ants.
Only 20 sites at the state park. 10 are very nice with asphalt driveways, 50 amp, sewer, but also - each site had a SMOKER and a fire ring and a paved picnic area with shelter.
We had already gone shopping, but went back to walmart to get some stuff to grill!
They had no security lights, which meant that at night you could see every. single. star. Beautiful.
The downside is -
Campsites are a long walk to the playground and guard shack.
Spotty cell service. We were able to get messages on and off. Mostly nothing.
A little wifi at the main office. - mmette00

It's a beautiful, well-maintained state park with a swimming pool, public 9-hole golf course, and small campground. There are 10-sites with full hookup and 10-sites with water and electric. It was very quiet there and we saw many deer and wild turkeys wandering across the fairway in front of our camp site. The nightly rate of $21 does not include a $3/day per person state park entry fee. Still a great price at $27/day for a FHU site. - CNRUSA

I generally always like Texas State Parks for camping, and this small park is in Lockhart where there is great BBQ. Other than a little 9 hole golf course (which I would have played had we been there longer) there is not much to do at the park. There are short trails so no good hiking. But the park is small and quiet, and I saw fishing and playground opportunities for young families. - User3772

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
