Be aware of all of the flooding we currently have in Texas, especially since many of the state parks are located near rivers. Austin has so much to offer, you may want to spend part of your time in the city. The best RV park for location, is Pecan Grove RV Park at 1518 Barton Springs Rd. 1(512) 472-1067. It's just down the road from Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool, and within biking distance of downtown. There are also numerous restaurants within walking distance. Be sure and make a reservation ASAP.

Mckinney Falls State Park. Very convenient to Austin. A nice clean state park with clean facilities.

If you wont to be somewhat close to town try La Hacienda. It's near Lake Travis just west of town off FM 620. We've stayed there and its nice. Try not driving in Austin during morning or evening rush hours. Very congested.

You specifically said not downtown. So far the responses have respected that but I'm going to ask WHY?

There is a very interesting "campground" (I use that term loosely) and it's very close to downtown and allows you to experience Austin in an entirely different manner compared to driving in for the day. If you want to know more you can find it on Allstays.

As for not downtown... the state parks in the area are all good. Many people have already posted their favorites. There are also several county parks as well as private campgrounds within driving distance. Be sure to consider Shiner, TX - it's in the area and has some interesting sites in the area - and good beer too!

Not sure what you mean by nice places to stay. One persons junk is another persons treasure. Once again, Allstays will show you where most of these places are located.

Good Luck.

Pecan Grove, in town has a couple of spaces near the street for use by non resident trailers, but not a place that you can just pop in to.

If you wish to not be downtown, cross the Pecan Grove off the list. Wonderful, quirky old park within walking distance of great parks and restaurants (we've been and love it), but traffic on Barton Springs is worse than horrendous....not trailer friendly.

It's a little north of Austin, but we had a great stay last winter at Jim Hogg Park in Georgetown. It's on a lake, with lots of spaces and hookups. Park had lots of trees and a hiking trail around the lake. Downtown Austin is about 45 min away depending on traffic, but it was the closest place we found that wasn't like a mobile home park.
