“Much Better Than Expected”

Reviewed Mar 10, 2019

Overall Rating

This two night (Thu / Fri) stay was far above our expectations, based on other reviews, perhaps because it was the first week of March. While the other paved campsites were full, there were no day users, so the park was very quiet. Lots of grass around the very wide sites and down to the lake. Our 24' Class B+ just fit into Site 10. Th... more

“Good spot close to Northwest Austin”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2018

Overall Rating

The park was pretty run down, but we'll chock that up to it being the middle of a very cold December. Our site was adequate for the rate, with water and power. Close to a good part of Austin and only 20 min from downtown. Couple trails in the area. We did have one night where we had to put the smack down on a large group pulled in a... more

I've reviewed this place before but it's been a few years, and we camped this time in the tent zone, so Im'ma drop another fat beat here get all the new kids on the block in sync. The tent area...yeah, it's for tenting, so I didn't expect much, and don't need much. There was shade cast down on the corner of our site from a beautiful... more

“A view of mansions across the river.”

Reviewed May 14, 2017

Overall Rating

This was the only place I could book because of South by Southwest. At least the only place that looked decent. I definitely felt like a city park. The rest rooms closest to the RV sites were closed. The other restrooms worked, but they were sort of open air. Which worked for me the first day, but on the second morning the weather got ... more

“A little too basic and away from Austin fun”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at Emma Long in March, 2017. It's fairly difficult to get to in a class A, LOTS of steep hills and tight turns coming into the park. Small spaces for RV's/ trailers. A little too small for my taste. We have a 36' and are maxed out as far as distance goes. No real privacy, just a spot. Also, there's no laundry on-site. We'... more

“Killer swans...”

Overall Rating

What can I say? Free pecans out the wazoo. Super staffy friendliness types and a very quiet retreat during the week. Party types come up, and aren't discouraged, on the weekends, but who hates all up on a party? Maybe you hate beside a party, or hate it when you end up under the party, but when you're all up on it? Quite frankly, I'... more

“Older city park with an awesome location”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Date of stay: March 2015 Emma Long is right on Lake Austin (aka the Colorado River) and offers a great setting close to the action in Austin. Prices range from $10 a night for tent sites away from the water, to $20 for utility (RV) sites on the side of the road away from the water, to $25 for waterfront sites. The utility campground... more

Another advantage of picking Emma Long Metropolitan Park is that Kathy’s work is across the river and around the bend, so almost a stone’s throw away. This meant that Kathy stayed with me for a few of...
