But- one persons stone is another's diamond.
The OP has a 40' DP..............THANKS for that info.

We have a 39', no problem getting in or out. There were several larger coaches and fifth wheels there, just tell them when you make the reservation and they will put in an appropriate site. Also the roads in the park are asphalt not dirt, the hookups are old but nobody seemed to have any problems during our two week stay.

It's all about location, location, location and if you want to be near downtown and all of the really cool parks this is the place. Your don't even need a car if you stay there, a bike will take you everywhere you need to go.

You are a much better driver than I!!! They put us in the back and I had a hard time in a 25 ft MH last year. A 5th wheel came in after us and tried to get in the site they gave him, and he gave up after awhile and left. There were some big rigs, but again, I felt it was tight. Also, where they put us - the tree limbs beat the day lights out of our roof. Again, my opinion only

We have stayed at Oak Forrest several times going to the ROT rally the first week of
June. Have never had a problem, the sites are long and level cement. All hookups
are maintained and in good condition. The people working the office are very friendly and helpful. Our last toy hauler was 40' and never had a problem getting in or out.

I was referring to Pecan Grove, not Oak Forest as being tight. I haven't stayed at Oak Forest, but plan on it the next time we go to Austin.

I am SURE you will not be dis-appointed in the conditions at Oak Forest. And you can trust me.....30 years on the west bank.

Pecan Park RV Park Reviews 4.5 stars. Pretty amazing considering it is practically in downtown and in an area that personifies Austin. Walking distance to many Austin favorites like Chuy's Tex Mex, Shady Grove, Uchi, Hut's Hamburgers. Heck, I may make reservations there next time I go to a Austin City Limits, or for New Years Eve. I could have used it for the Rolling Stones a few years ago, when we had to park at a shopping mall several miles away. There was another RV Park next to it until 4-5 years ago, but it yielded to some expensive condo's.

Spent a week at Pecan Grove in March in our 35' motorhome. Saw a couple of 40' Class A motorhomes there too. Yeah, there are fulltimers there (who could turn down $350/month rent this close to downtown?), there are low branches & wires, it is old & funky, there are some tight turns, but......... location, location, location. Manager Bob knows how to navigate rigs through the park. He is VERY experienced at lifting wires & branches out of the way. His word is golden too. All the residents we met there were nice. Walk/bike to many good restaurants, Zilker Park, downtown, Congress Street Bridge, Texas State Capitol, LBJ Library, etc. Austin has a great bus system with many stops near Pecan Grove. Gotta love a place such as Pecan Grove that does not have a website and only accepts cash or personal checks for payment! If you need manicured grounds and spotless modern restrooms, Pecan Grove is not for you. If on the other hand you want to stay in a park with a down to earth atmosphere that is unbelievably convenient to Austin's amenities, give Bob a call to see if he can fit you in at Pecan Grove. We definitely will when we go back to Austin again.
