On this trip we did Tent camping. I drove out there to pick a site before we camped, and settled on #28, but you cannot reserve this site online. 25-29 are only reservable by contacting LCRA, as these sites are cut off if the water in the lake is higher than 'full' (even though historically the water has been lower than full for countless years on end). This is the secret! and #28 is awesome. It is located up a little hill, on somewhat of a peninsula. There are trees all around and the area had been trimmed with a weedeater for several spots for tents. There is no specific tent pad, but there is level ground available. A picnic table and bbq pit is provided, as well as a fire ring. There is enough room to park 2-3 vehicles, or even a small ~18ft trailer could be parked as if pulled-through in front of the site. The road is rather large in this spot, and you could pull in and turn around if needed, as site 29 is up the hill and you do not block the road. There is no electric or water, but the site is nice and away from most of the others, including those that are reservable online. Even with a torrent of rain 6" in 4 hours the site provides good drainage as the parking area is at the crown of a small hill, just mind where your tent is. There is a small cove behind the site, that is easy to get to, but you might have other campers traipsing through your back door to get to the small cove. The lake is only 150 feet away, so taking a canoe or kayak is not an issue. The campground is split by this small cove, and this section is accessible via a minimally maintained dirt road (but still car passable even after the torrent rain). The other side of the park has paved roads to all but one of the sites and a real bathroom. Sites off the dirt road side have only a Port-a-Potty, and the real bathroom is across the cove and not accessible from sites 19-29. This is a diamond on Lake Travis and having the few sites that are "secret" such as not published online. We camped at Turkey Bend Recreation Area in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

28 and 29 are the best sites, and cannot be reserved online. Call to reserve, chances are they are always open, unless someone knows this secret. Be careful on the dirt road, it is a little narrow. Bring your own water and a generator if you want power. Great spot to fish, kayak, or just do nothing.
