35 Parks near Dripping Springs, Texas

This park is in a wooded area with a super walking trail. The manager is great. There is only one shower and toilet. The water taste terrible and leaves white spots. There is no cell phone service and no cable. An antenna will get some channels. Some sites are shaded, some are not. - S R

This park is about 13 miles to downtown Dripping Springs, Tx. Nice and clean park with mostly live ins but all sites occupied appeared well kept. Owner was very cordial and showed us to our site and helped us get set up. All sites are gravel with full hookups and had a picnic table. Nice landscaping around our site #28. Park is currently building more sites. Excellent broadband WiFi. AT&T cell service almost non-existant. We will stay again!! We stayed in a 38ft motorhome. - HillCountryRV0128

This part of Texas is in drought and the park reflects the lack of rain by dust and very little vegetation. Most of the shade is taken up by long timers. The park is big rig friendly but there are a lot of low branches that need to be trimmed. The internal roads and sites are gravel. The utilities are adequate. This is not a destination park. The staff is accommodating and friendly. We won't be back. - az hill house

We stayed here mostly out of desperation. The other two nearby parks were booked up, so we were just happy that we found someplace to park our rig for a few days to visit our kids and granddaughter. I was a bit surprised that there were so few RV parks in the area, but that's for another time. Basically, we stayed on dirt, and did have hook-ups, and that was about it. As others have said, this is for long-termers who are working in the area. I think our 2014 motorhome was about the newest and in the best condition one there. We got caught in some rain and ended up in Texas mud which we still (a year later) haven't entirely gotten rid of on the underside of our Jeep Wrangler! But that's okay - it's proof we were there. Plus or minus - the park is right near an open space for cows and some get into the park if the gate is open for any length of time. Our dog found this terrifying even if we found it mostly amusing. They do amble a bit and make some big noises (poor puppy!) For us, it added to the rustic charm (ahem!), but I can imagine others would feel it was a bit too rustic. Lastly, the owner who we only spoke to on the phone, was pleasant and there was a caretaker who lived there (again, we never actually saw him, but he lived right behind the laundry room.) We did not use any of the facilities as we were visiting nearby family, but we also didn't try and have any family visit us. To us, we were staying in the "cow pasture" - $40 a night is really rather high considering the state of the facilities and location. - Ellistea

The point of this posting is to alert everyone that Dripping Springs RV Park is, for now, more of a trailer park -- permanent residents -- than an RV park catering to those who are just passing through. I went by Dec.23 to reserve a site for a visit in the spring. Said I wanted to stay a week or 10 days. Was told that wouldn't be long enough for them, that the park caters to long-term, permanent residents. Couldn't go in for a drive-through tour ... there is a locked gate with keypad access to the campground. From what I could see from the gate, the park was pretty full, sites looked (from a distance) level and comfortably close together, with not a whole lot of shade. Well-maintained by what I could see. - VA-Parrothead

Website is deceptively modern and nice. This is a 'new' park as of summer 2015. It is already 1/2 full with 'permanent' residents. It is set in beautiful Texas Hill Country, but the park itself is not beautiful at all. Spaces are very narrow. Most are not level. Dirt drive and 'pads.' Cars parked willy-nilly throughout the small park. Free, but inconsistent internet (was out for the last few days we stayed). This park does not post rules, and as such, residents are free to hang out outside late into the evening enjoying themselves. Lots of dogs; lots of incessant barking while we were there. We are all for enjoyment, and we love dogs, but this impeded our ability to work and sleep. Owner/management is not onsite, but is very friendly over the phone. 20 minutes from conveniences of Dripping Springs, an hour outside of Austin. We left the park after a week and a half, choosing to 'eat' the money we paid in advance to stay a full month. No regrets about leaving, even with having to pay 'double fees' by staying elsewhere. There are many parks around Austin and/or Dripping Springs; avoid this place if at all possible. - Liz Chafik

Great people giving you that special Texas feeling of hospitality. It's really convenient to all kinds of places near and around Austin. Quiet, with a country feeling. Only complaint would be the Internet could be stronger, but otherwise we love it. - traveling bug

This is a solid RV park with a few drawbacks. Turning in off the Hamilton Pool Rd is a little tricky simply because the traffic is fairly heavy. I would recommend better visibility for their signing. Our site was a bit uneven, causing one of our front wheels to be off the ground. Not a serious problem for a 3 day stay. The restroom/shower is clean and okay but not handicapped equipped. There are several tighter turns, got half way a turn and had to stop and unhook our toad.
One of the other reviewers mentioned the host - he is a real bright spot for any RVer. Accommodating and eager to help in anyway he could. - bigben

Had a lovely asphalt pull through site, with large grass area and new round picnic table under a shade tree. Lots of room on the pad to serve as a large patio area. Really could get comfortable, all hookups worked great, and the wireless was outstanding.
The most gracious host you could imagine. There are mostly long term rentals, but the park is meticulously kept up, quiet and clean.
Short drive into Bee Cave for shopping, and lots to do in the area. We highly recommend. - Travelling Anne

We stayed at this park for 4 days and enjoyed it completely. There was ample shade trees, the park was clean, the restrooms even though we didn't need them were very clean, the laundry room was small but very clean. Lot of deer to watch towards sunset. The owner was very courteous and helpful and a delight to deal with. The resident dog "Jake" was a lot of fun since we brought along our 5 month old puppy on her maiden voyage with us. We would definitely stay here again. Make sure you have everything because the closest Wal-Mart is 20 miles. We had some friends stay in a tent. It is 2 miles to the entrance of Pace Bend state park. - ncolburn

We have a very nice site. Stayed on a weekend, and the place was packed, but it wasn't noisy. Awesome hiking trails, and you can swim in the river. - Bob806

Site 45 had a pad just long enough for our travel trailer. We have a '12 Ram 3500 dually that we had to park sideways and were told it MUST be on the asphalt. No extra room for any other vehicles.
The picnic table was a little over 60 feet away. Very inconvenient. A LOT OF STICKERS!!!! Watch your little ones and dogs. Beautiful park, sites are relatively small for campers and vehicles.
Enjoyed the park. - debbieandjon

Park personnel were friendly and efficient. Our site, though somewhat small, was adequate for our 5th wheel and was clean and orderly. Deer amble around the park in the evenings and early mornings. They are shy but not frightened.
If you want to see, swim in, or fish in the river, you will have a pretty good hike ahead of you. Parking areas are quite a distance from the river, and trails are mostly up-and-down hill. - K Graham

The electric box had a 50amp, but it didn't work. Forgot to ask if they upgraded and it was complete. Only a quick stopover and we didn't need full 50, so we just used the 30amp. Otherwise same great time and place to stay. The park rangers rocked. - leonsrocketcar

State Park so you pay an $8 entry fee plus the nightly fee. Back into concrete pads, trees aren't trimmed so beware. Stayed at #3 and no real place to eat outdoors as the ground rolled downhill once off the pad. Bathrooms/shower were clean. Stayed there in our 28' Class C and still had room to park a car in our slot. Had campfires, but grills were in bad shape. bring your own. - leonsrocketcar

We stayed in the gated area of the park and inn for two days. Our slot was by the small laundry. Sites were nice with trees and grass. The lake is close by. Folks were friendly, and my site was a back in site, and the staff was very helpful getting it safely docked. The rating reflects that while the campground is nice, it is expensive for the services delivered. Cautions: There are no circuit breakers on the power dock. Note there is no store, restroom/shower facilities, or propane, and the cost is higher than we are used to. This is a mixed community of long and short termer's. - RealMcCoys

We stayed here for 2 months. CG managers on site and helpful. Very scenic hill country area of suburban Austin and convenient to Downtown (20 min.) Some good wide and deep shaded sites and others are little tighter, but most are excellent. Paved CG roads, and good grass areas at sites. Lots of full timers here with dogs, whose owners do not clean up after. We have large dog and scoop every time. Other extended stay owners don't seem to abide by same rules which were stressed to us at sign up. Wi-Fi reception is OK depend on location and tree cover. No LP gas available at CG. In motorhome have to disconnect and travel 7 miles to get, very inconvenient. No CG store and need to travel only 1/2 mi. to store. Laundry clean and newer units, 3 wash and 3 dryers. No other amenities at CG, but would camp/stay again. - wldbysmx

Very nice spot with great staff. Though it doesn't have public bathroom, shower, store, & propane gas. It's got large grass area and trees. Close to downtown Austin. The foggy morning in this park is breathtaking. The fogs are so thick and you find your own RV yet, it is so beautiful. We will definitely come back. - airstreamnyc

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

Excellent Park in every way. Super Clean, super quiet, lots of space between sites. Super nice folks. This park is a 10. One of the best we've stayed in across the U.S. Run by Sun RV Corporation. Also, La Hacienda is near Lake Travis. It is a beautiful park, quiet, up in the hills. If you like to take advantage of all that Austin has to offer, you have to bite the bullet and manage how you are going to drive into Austin. It can be 35 minutes without traffic (which is only in the middle of the night!) or 50 minutes with traffic. We plan each day around the traffic. Sometimes we go early and because we love music we stay late. In that case of a long day, we go to the Driscill Hotel in the afternoon, have a soda, and take a little rest/snooze on their comfy couches. There is a LOT of construction and traffic all the time, so just be prepared. - Billy2015

This is one of the nicest RV parks we've ever been in. The sites are long, spacious, and clean. There was enough room to park our 40 ft motorhome, plus 4 other cars on our pad. All the hookups worked as expected. My kids enjoyed the beautiful pool and elaborate playground. We had trash pickup every morning. Verizon signal was super fast.
A minor issue at checkin was amiably resolved by the park manager. We had some trouble with Comcast (not the fault of the park) and the maintenance manager helped us debug the issue at 8pm--spending almost an hour with us until we got it right. Excellent staff! - BosRv
