CG help in Austin, TX

We're planning on being in Austin, TX or at least daily driving distance from the North Austin area for the week before Christmas. We're looking for a camp ground. The rig is a 40' motorhome. I would like to be away from the major highways and railroad tracks. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

Although it's in South Austin, you might look at Austin Lone Star RV Resort. They have quite a few sites that are "big rig" friendly. They have full hook ups, including wifi and cable, if you need it. We have stayed there often. Not sure what is in the North Austin area.

Thanks Newmar Boy. I saw that one listed and found it on a map. Is it pretty near (noise-wise) I-35?
My daughter lives just a little South of Round Rock so was hoping to find someplace up that way that would be quiet. No luck yet.

Maybe Madame Boomer will see this post...she has a wealth of knowledge on the Austin area campgrounds. If you don't get a response from her send her a pm.

Kix,

I stayed at Old Settlers RV Park in Round Rock for a few months last year,while working in the area. It's the first exit north of Austin and is located across from the Dell Diamond ball field.

Its a small park with about 30 sites, and 40' plus toad are no problem. On my departure I posted a review on RV Park Reviews and noticed one of the reviews complained about the trains.

In my 3 month stay I never heard a train, but we had 62 days in a row over 100 degrees, so the AC was on most of the time.

It is about 10 minutes from North Austin, and worth checking out.

Paul

If you can get your sis to find out the name of the rv park in Leander, it might fit your bill. It is an older park, no amenities, cheap and off the beaten track, but is real close to Round Rock.

Thanks for the suggestions Elkhart
Old Settler's would have been a great location but I was scared off by the proximity to the RR tracks AND the review.
The only place I can find in Leander WAS Sunshine and is now KOA.

Anyone know anything about Oak Forest??

Thanks guys

Smile Austin area park

There's a new park located near Lake Travis called La Hacienda RV Park. We've driven through the park and it looks like a great place. We're attending a rally there the end of this month and will report back on how quiet it is. Check it out in the 2010 Trailer Life Directory, page 1287.

You might look at Eastview R V Park in Georgetown, just a conversation away from Round Rock.

Two parks come to mind. There is a COE park on Lake Georgetown that is quiet with large sites, but only water and elec. The only problem you might encounter is that they close the gates at 10PM and no one is able to get back in after that time.

The other park is in Jonestown, "A Mountaintop RV Park". It sits high on a hill overlooking lake Travis and is very quiet. The only problem is that the road into the park is dirt, which tends to coat your toad. We have stayed there many times and the owners are wonderful folks.
