River Forest Haven is a unique space that seeks to bring you closer to nature. We do not artificially light the camp and we strive to leave as much of the property in its natural state as we can. This provides a unique experience that is not your typical campground as we keep all of our campsites tucked under lush natural canopies. Car and tent camping works great! For most sites, you can easily drive up to your spot. Arrive, take a look around and settle into your site. We are always happy to deliver any of our items from our general store- just message us on HipCamp and we will come by. With nearly half a mile of Colorado riverfront to swim, fish, toob, paddle-board, kayak, and canoe*, along with 30 acres to hike and explore, River Forest Haven is also a quick 20-minute drive from downtown Austin. THINGS OF NOTE: ⁃ cell phone service is mostly non-existent ⁃ firewood can be brought or bought, but not collected.

Site 5 - River Forest Haven- Tent Sites
We really enjoyed this campsite! We had a large space with direct access to the river, and were close to the showers. We could hear our neighbors and their dog, which was a bit distracting, but they also seemed like a particularly loud group, so that may not be everyone's experience.

Great family camping!
My son and I enjoyed our time on your awesome property! It’s so woodsy and on the water, private and quiet campsites, but easy to walk and find your way around. Great for families! And the owner/mngmt is helpful and make themselves easily accessible! Text them, and they’ll show up in a golf cart a few minutes later!

Perfect spot for a short float.
Great campsite. The little beach is really fun, and the river is perfect for floating. The owner was very friendly and helpful, even offered us bug spray. They also responded quickly to messages.

Peace, Love & River Floats
We LOVE this place, and they've made so many awesome improvements since we visited a year ago. The River Haven hosts are awesome and eager to help with anything you may need. Site 8 is spacious with easy river access (so important in the summertime). The water temperature is lovely and refreshing. Great spot for paddle boarding or tube floating. Be careful if you use the rope swing - the placement of it is a little tricky. :) We saw so many interesting bugs. Enjoy! Please respect nature and don't litter!

River Forest Haven- Open Camping
This place was perfect for our family from the the beach and toobing down the river to the rope swing and good ol fishing. There was literally fun for everyone.
