Smaller cramped park located convenient to the growing Leander area. Back in sites were very close / crowded, but the pull throughs in center were twice as long as needed, which was curious. Park drives are pebble gravel, and feature large messy puddles when raining. Little shade. Our site required 1 lego block pair to get level. Central complex has an attractive pool, but it also has very loud cowboy music playing non-stop. 25 channels of free analog cable TV worked fine. Staff were friendly and pleasant at check in. WiFi reliable but slow (0.7 Mbps up / 0.2 Mbps down during busy evening times). Very nice fully fenced large and very clean grassy dog park. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Usual shopping is available to the south on 183 (WalMart, Costco). Nearby HEB. Had a very nice lunch at the "Farm to Fork" organic cafe in a strip mall 1 mile north of the HEB.

Small campground however level sites with nice sized pull-thru for big rigs and a toad [100' long]. The dog park is the largest we've seen and very well maintained. The hot tub was being opened the first night we stayed however we did not participate. It's a good location for visiting our family in Cedar Park. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

Very clean, well kept park tucked away among rural farms. Level, concrete sites, but fairly tight. Large, grassy, fenced dog park for your four legged friend to roam around in. Will stay again. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

It's a nice small campground and therefore pretty quiet. The sites are paved; the rest is either grass or gravel, their bathrooms are very clean, we personally liked it.

It's close to highways and about 30min away from Austin.

The water pressure is excellent and wifi is free and pretty good too.

We stayed for 5 nights. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice level spots, good wifi and cable, HUGE dog run, quiet. We stayed here because quite literally every other place in and around Austin for 50 miles was full. It is more expensive than other parks in the area by $100 or so per week. (No weekly discount @KOA) We likely would not stay here again for that reason.

We were given a very level gravel pull-thru site with full hookups and 50 amp service. Park Internet and cable TV worked fine. Our only problem with this park was a huge markup in price because we stayed through Christmas week. We didn't use any park amenities because the clubhouse had a sign saying it was closed, and the pool/hot tub also had a sign stating it was closed for the season. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access to the north Austin area, but getting anywhere requires use of toll roads. There is a nice HEB grocery store within a short drive of the park.

We stay at this park often as our daughter lives in Leander. The park is always clean, and the staff always friendly. The park is not far from shopping and a park/ride if you want visit Austin. There is a nice playground for the kids, and like all KOAs now a doggy park, as well. I feel their rates are a bit high, but it is very conveniently located. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We paid 273.67 for one week here which absolutely was not worth it. They do have swim pool but other than that no amenities to warrant 100.00 more per week than other parks in area charge. No shade and sites are not very wide. The only thing they have is a good location. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

Long pull throughs. Friendly staff. Very clean facilities. WiFi fairly decent most times. Park has a few seasonals that are well kept. Easy access to toll road 183 and only 5 mins to park/ride bus-train station into Austin. Propane available. Not a lot of trees for summer Rvers. Pool/hot tub cleaned daily, but closed til April 1st. Huh? No cable is a drawback. Not a very scenic locale; more of a functional park for those tending to business or family in north Austin and northwest suburbs. Worth a visit. Our rate was based upon monthly stay. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly reception, ample space for motorhome with slide outs. Level, gravel parking and interior roads OK. Too cold for pool season. Easy drive from I-35 via country highway. Toll road very close for trips south into Austin. Park location seems "in the country" yet ample services nearby. New HEB Plus grocery store less than 2 miles. Will stay again when in the area We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here frequently, and always gave it a pretty good rating; but the philosophy of the management has changed. For positives, the pull through pads and interior roads are paved. Back in sites are dirt. Propane is easy to get to. Water pressure is good. On the other hand, all the tent sites are replaced with cabins. A few tents did go up in back in sites which are really rocky. Landscaping is mostly dead or dying (probably due to the drought and no watering). The program to get rid of the burrs which stick into dog's feet has been discontinued, and there are lots of burrs. The long promised fenced dog run has not been started, and now the park dog who snarled at approaching dogs is on the other side of the dog walk fence. Electric at our first site kept shorting out, requiring us to move (maybe someone needs to check out the system). Most disturbing was being gouged for the cost. We called and made a reservation. We were told that we would have to pay a premium rate for 4 days due to the Austin formula 1 race. And, we would have to pay a premium for the rest of the stay due to thanksgiving. The price quoted was $579 for 7 days - no weekly rate & no cancellation refunds. The story was that they were packed. (During the race the park was about 25% full; the race being about 30 miles away,) the park was more full for thanksgiving, but still not full. We made a think about the cost (Bella Terra is only $300 per week.). We got a call back and the gave us a break on he race rate, and on check in tacked on $70 for the week for our 3 dogs ; this with almost no where to walk them! Also note that the I130 toll road is open and the noise in the park has increased greatly. And yes, the small yapping dogs from the house next door are still there. We decided to never use this KOA again. There are nicer parks on the other side of the interstate. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

If you are driving a big rig (40' or over) turn into the exit, not the main entrance and circle around behind the office. The owner will explain the need for this if you call and ask. We have family in Austin and, over the past 10 years, have stayed here no less the 20 times. It is a flat level park with easy turns into the sites. The streets and pads are asphalt . It is convenient to everything on the NW side of Austin and is directly next to 183, a toll road providing fast and reasonable service to any point in Austin. It is a Mom and Pop park; the owners are Texas friendly and will treat you like family. Our 45' bus is giddy to arrive and always sad to leave. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

Like this park. Clean restrooms, level sites for my camper. Wi-Fi a little slow, but adequate. Lots of shopping nearby. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here in a Fifth wheel. Found the facilities to be clean and well kept with space between each site. The staff was courteous and very helpful. Just wish I had found this campground about 6 months ago so that I would have stayed at the campground instead of driving so many times to go to work. Convenience was the key to the campground's location. Next to the toll road and HWY 183. Construction issues did make it a hassle to reach the campground.
