“Chill mid-week stay with the fam”

Reviewed May 05, 2018

Overall Rating

I've lived in/around Austin for 20 years, so I've taken many day trips to wade under the falls, but this was the first time to ever camp. There are a lot people who visit for the day, so it's not unusual to encounter a line at the Ranger station. The campgrounds are set a good ways away from the day use areas though, so once you're aro... more

“Beautiful park, not far from city”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2018

We came here twice in March 2018. Both experiences were great! The sites were very scenic (W/E only). We had some great hikes around the park at the Upper & Lower Falls. The bike trail is in VERY POOR condition though, so be prepared for loose asphalt and lots of bumps! Also the playground was just 4 swings, much to the disappointment ... more

“Great State Park - Close to Everything”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great state park in the Austin area. The sites were spacious and the setting was great, with large trees. There is a large hiking trail the goes around the entire exterior of the park. The trail is also dog friendly. We walked the entire trail and spent some time at the falls. The weekends are very busy with day use folks. It... more

“Great time!”

Reviewed Feb 06, 2018

Overall Rating

This park was really great! Large sites but a bit unlevel. The Falls hiking was really great! Park rangers and hosts patrolled often and were very friendly. Facilities were a bit dated but very clean and well kept— but no soap provided. Kind of weird?

Close to Austin.

We extended our stay twice!

“Completely awesome except for our unlevel site”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved everything about this campground except for the aggravation we had trying to get level. Otherwise, it was fantastic. We lucked out with a very private site (#13), however we noticed most sites were really pretty great. Most are tucked in among the trees, with a few out in the sun, but all offer significant space between c... more

We camp at McKinney Falls State Park several times a year. The wife often has business functions in the Austin area and this park is in the perfect location! It is a short 20 min drive to downtown Austin yet you feel like you are way out in a very remote location! We always select a site in the Cedar Sage loop as these are all 50 amp... more

“Absolutely Beautiful!”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our first time to stay here and I was quite pleased. Our site was a pull thru and the space was lovely. Lots of shady spots to hang out in during the day. The only thing I didn't like was the position of our Airstream in conjunction with the sun. At this particular site, the street side of the Airstream never escapes the sun. ... more

If you're looking to stay in the Austin area with quick access to the city without feeling like you're in the city, this is the spot. While it's only a few miles off of a main highway, once you enter the park, you feel like you're nowhere near an urban area. Everything from the front entrance sign to the roads and bathrooms is immacula... more

Urban RV camping can be a disappointing experience. Crowded sites, parking lot aesthetics, bright lighting, and really, all of the things that can ruin a sense of home. Thankfully, when visiting Austin, you have another option with McKinney Falls State Park. Only ten miles from downtown Austin, this relatively spacious park makes for a... more
