This is a very nice, 'resort-like' campground, located just northwest of Austin's city center.

Our Site #: C-22
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
3.5/5: Site spacing here was pretty good for a private RV park. There are large grass strips between most sites (though some sections offer bigger strips than others) and trees sprinkled throughout the grounds. We lucked out by not having many neighbors, but even when we did have them, we never felt like they were sitting on top of us.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
3.5/5: The location here was decent. The park is located right near Lake Travis, so if you have any interest in water based activities, it's fantastic. You also have all your standard necessities close by. Located farther away are things like Costco and other big box retailers, but still - only about 20 or 25 minutes. Downtown Austin, with all its bars and restaurants, museums, and parks is also between 20 and 30 minutes away, depending on where you're headed.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
4.5/5: Site quality was very good here - all paved roads and gravel sites. Our row was all pull-in sites which we loved. This way, we were facing east, so we avoided having the sun on our front windshield in the afternoon which helped keep temperatures under control. Sites around the rest of the park were angled in different directions, but very few faced west. Utilities worked fine, though we did notice our water pressure was rather low. Road are wide, paved, and easy to navigate.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, campground wifi, and staff):
4/5: You can make daily reservations online, but for monthly, you need to call. I also emailed back and forth with the front desk a few times and they were very responsive. We received several packages at the front office during our stay, which made things easier.
Overall Value Rating (the overall value of the campground; was it overpriced for what it was?):
5/5: While I would have a hard time justifying their daily rate - which I believe is over $60 - their monthly rate is very fair. You do have to pay separately for your electricity, but if you're there in a cooler month, it's really not all that much. We had a really nice site, and we enjoyed the small dog park nearby, the walking path around the retention pond, and the proximity to local parks. The resort has some nice amenities, including a pool, a fitness room, game/activity rooms, and a nice looking laundry building. For the price we paid, we thought the value was great.
This is another rare RV park that calls itself a resort and actually offers resort-like amenities. We lucked out by not having neighbors for most of our stay, but even when we did, we didn't mind. There was a decent amount of spacing between the sites and we never felt on top of anyone. The park is very clean and tidy, and the amenities looked really nice - pool, playground, putting green, game room, etc.
