I'd opt for shaded parking. Any other amenity is superfluous this time of year.

Looks like a lot of people with experience in the Austin area. So, I would like to take advantage of the expertise and ask people what they think of Austin for a snowbird in Jan and Feb. is it pleasant weather and are there RV places available to explore or do you need reservations? Hope it is ok to put this in this thread.

austin area Jan-Feb

the weather , typically is 60 degree days...mid 30's for lows...that is if there is not a blue norther...or a run a way canadian air mass that can bring temps dow to the teens for a few days..... and an ice storm is not untypical for somewhere in the Jan-Feb period......

but that aside there are many state parks within a 100 mile radius of austin and most likely you would not need reservations...

and there is always the coast during this time of the year...maybe there won't be any pesky mosquitos......

but other than that.....

I stayed for a week at McKinney Falls for thenSXSW music festival last March and loved it..it is actually inside Austin city limits. You are only 10 minutes from South Congress. There are bike lanes into town if you want to ride..
Just book early if you are going during a busy event time.

January and February are typically the coldest months with temps sometimes getting into the low teens at night. Days can go from the 40’s to the 70’s... Snow has happened on occasion but is usually gone by the afternoon.... rather civilized. There is nothing brutal about winters in Austin but again, your pipes can freeze at night if not protected. The “cold snaps” are that and fall in between many days of light jacket weather.

I’ll second Oak Forrest. When we sold our house in Austin and started fulltiming, we stayed there for about 6 weeks wrapping up loose ends before taking off. Very nice park, easy in and out and close to town. Pecan Grove is right on Barton Springs Road by Zilker Park and nestled between alot of restaurants and bars. It is not easy in and out, especially during high traffic (AM & PM bumper-to-bumper work traffic). Pecan Grove is in central Austin very close to downtown and there is alot of traffic, just because...

A great park for wintering that also has great monthly rates in the winter, is the Lazy L&L in New Braunfels (about $280.mo. all bills incl), just north of San Antone, south of Austin. It is situated with the Guadalupe River running on two sides of the park - very serene during the winter, full hook-ups, pet friendly, great facilities, very easy in and out. Highly recommend it if you want to explore the area for a couple 2-3 months. Close to San Antone & Austin, Gruene, Fredericksburg, San Marcos, etc... Highly recommend ‘em.

Good luck in your travels and have fun!
