Get a campsite on the west side of the park...it's much more primitive and secluded with a excellent private view of the lake. If you're wanting more people around with real bathrooms, the east side of the park is more suitable. If you brought your...More

Everything I wanted in camping!! Beautiful lake, beautiful views! Easy access! "Cliffs" you can jump off! The most bare-able outside restrooms I've ever been in! I can't wait to go back!

Nice, large, private and primitive camp sites for tenting. Many on cliffs above Lake Travis. Don't have info on RV sites to share but the park is huge so there are many options.

There's a lot to hike. You can get some really pretty shots, and is very relaxing. There is no wow factor, it's just a nice park overall.

Depending upon the side of the park you choose, you can camp on cliffs or right down next to the water. Nice get away not too far outside Austin. Fun even for the day to hang out and swim/cliff jump
