Perfect little spot, very well-maintained, clean, and peaceful. Steps from a clear water creek. Nice outdoor bathroom, sparkling clean, thoughtful touches. Feels very remote but in reality you're only about 10 min or less from 183 in Leander. Only downsides were a dog next door that barked a fair amount (warned about this in location description) and surprisingly there was some considerable air traffic noise late into the night. Hosts provide a baggie full of fresh ear plugs if needed. These were minor issues for me but light sleepers beware.

Great little campsite! The land is well kempt, and the bathroom with running water is nice to have. I stayed here with my 8-year-old, and we had a wonderful time exploring trails, cooking over a campfire, and sleeping in our tent.

This was a very cute little spot. I LOVED the creek. Has a shower and real flushing toilet. We had a great time.
Hope to book again if in the area.

I spent 4 nights at this nice campsite. The small creek, flush tower, cold-water shower, picnic table, short trails through the bamboo, and fire pit are great features. Excellent hosts! Spotlessly clean and mowed.
My GPS "lied" to me because there is no cell service (ATT) in the immediate area. Make sure you know how to find the entrance without your phone working! Cell service works about 1/2 mile away from the site.
As others have noted, barking dogs in the neighborhood may be annoying to people not used to such background noise. I have yappy dogs myself, so it wasn't a big deal to me. YMMV.

Great camping site!
This is a hidden gem. I enjoyed this beautiful place with my family and had a great time.
Very well kept and clean. Virginia and Steven are wonderful hosts.
Bring deep-wood repellent 😀
I will keep on coming here!

Absolutely beautiful property! I wish we could’ve stayed longer. Will definitely be back sometime soon

We waded in the pristine creek, saw fish and tadpoles, reveled in birdsong, bathed in the forest.
This place is a hidden gem. So much better than TV.

Absolutely loved my stay!
Happy Acres is a gorgeous camp site! The bath house is amazing! After a day exploring different Texas sites, a nice cool shower in that bath house was pure bliss. The trails and creek provide gorgeous views and ample wildlife in the evenings. I had full cell service during my stay here (with Verizon) and the neighbor’s dog didnt park past 8 in the evening, so noise was of very little concern (and I’m a fairly light sleeper.) I plan to stay here every time I come back to the area, I couldn't have imagined a better place to set up camp!

Perfect hill country camping spot with so many fun hiking options near by. Virginia was absolutely wonderful as a host and was warm and welcoming to us our entire stay. Will be returning soon!

Had a great time! Beautiful spot with a really cool creek right by the campground. Good location for camping and doing a hike at Inks Lake.

We were looking for a place to camp for the first time with our kids and Happy Acres was perfect. We were close to home in Austin and it was not too primitive for the kids’ first time. The hosts greeted us at arrival and checked in to make sure we were ok. The kids (ages 2 & 5) had fun playing in the spring fed creek. There are a lot of nice touches such as the bath house (clean and stocked), swing, fire pit, picnic table and steps leading to the creek. It was a bit noisy but they do mention this on their profile. The kids didn’t seem to have trouble sleeping though. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thank you Virginia & Steve!

Super clean, great hosts!
This is a neighborhood spot, with a cool creek, bamboo forest (1/4 acre), very well maintained bathroom facilities (best I've ever seen in an outdoor space). Cool spot to introduce a kid to camping. Don't expect much quiet though (dogs, neighbor's music); take earplugs.

This was a beautiful, clean, well kept campsite. We enjoyed walking through the bamboo forest and rock bottom creek.

Friendly host and clean, cozy property. Would like to come back. P.s. we had full LTE cell signal (verizon) on the site.

The site was perfect. The creek, the bamboo forest, and the trails for the kids to explore all made for a great escape.

Escape the cuty
Hosts and camp site are excellent. It is a great place to get away from the city. No cell service, but that was a bonus.

Above and beyond our expectations. Steve and Virginia were extremely nice and respectful. Very quiet and well maintained campsite. Close to several nice hikes as well as a few trails on site. Would stay again.

Cute and Relaxing Private Campsite
We had a great trip! Virginia was very kind. She was waiting for us when we pulled up. The campsite was very well kept. The table and fire pit look out to the lovely creek. The trails were very nicely maintained. The kids had a blast! The bathroom was super clean and had everything we needed. Great private campsite! We would like to go back.

Great location and beautiful camp!
We loved staying here. The property is beautiful and the campsite was perfect. Beautiful walk around the bamboo and a short walk down to the water. Virginia and Steve were wonderful! I highly recommend staying here!

We had a great time. The site was exactly what we expected and the hosts friendly! Definitely recommend for someone looking to unplug.

the area itself was awesome, felt very comfortable there. Steve and Virginia were very nice and down to earth. the only “problem” for me was the loud neighbors. easy fix would to bring ear plugs. Other than that, It was a great weekend and I definitely want to come back sometime in the future.

Absolutely beautiful and well kept place.
Virginia and Steve were wonderful hosts and even suggested some places for us to visit. Well worth the price!

This camp site is fun and large enough even for a bigger group. There’s room to explore and privacy fences where necessary. The hosts were fantastic and gave a good tour of their property and what’s accessible. While the creek bed is currently dried up, the forested area and trails made up for it. Finally, the home made shower/restroom hut is such a great relief to have during these hot summer days! We’d say the only possible down side (ymmv) was the barking dog next door and crowing rooster. I think his clock was off because he’d crow off and on beginning around 4am
