Lakeway Eco Ranch

5 sites · Lodging, Tents1 acre · Austin, TX
Hi there! I'm Chris, an Austin native, and happy to host you on my land. Travelers welcome! Hablo español. I'm on one acre of semi-sloped land surrounded by cedar and oak trees. There is a creek that flows through the middle of the property. I currently have two listings: 1. A camping deck for outdoor camping 2. Indoor tiny home cabin with loft ALL of my listings include the following: - Indoor bathroom with hot shower and off-grid waterless toilet - WIFI - access to electricity - propane grill - fire pit (subject to burn ban) - the opportunity to meet my dogs and Miss Piggy :) The property has a nice woodsy feel, yet very close to so many things! 5 minutes from Lakeway HEB 5 minutes from Jessica Hollis park on Lake Austin 5 minutes from Mansfield Dam park on Lake Travis 5 minutes from 24-hour gas station (711 on 620 and Hudson Bend) 5 minutes from downtown Lakeway and a zillion restaurants 7 minutes from laundromat 30 minutes from downtown Austin Walking distance to Don Marios Restaurant A little bit about me. Currently I own a small boat rental business. I used to be a university Spanish professor. I played guitar in a cover band and toured in China. I once rode from Austin to Dallas in the trunk of the car. I may tell a dad joke, apologies in advance. Me gusta bailar. Now that boat rental season is ending, I spend most of my time working on my property and spoiling my animals. I go out with friends from time to time. Happy to provide recommendations for fun, dining, nightlife etc.

River Forest Haven

46 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents30 acres · Del Valle, TX
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.

Twisted Oaks

31 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents20 acres · San Marcos, TX
. Twisted Oaks is located on 20 acres of tree lined Texas Hill Country nestled in the heart of San Marcos. I've been here over 33 years. We have 10-15 campsites all named after the colors in a rainbow. We offer rentals of kayaks, coleman camp stoves, triple burner propane very large, mr buddy propane heaters jackery 1000 watt and bluetti 600 watt solar generators or a tent if this your first time. payment for extras can be cash or Venmo. If you have any special needs please feel free to contact me. thanks and hope to see you soon We sell seasoned oak and juniper hardwood. We are a small microbusiness and would really appreciate if you purchase wood here rather than at a large box store. It is your choice but just so you know you will get twice the wood for maybe half the price. We sell a large wheelbarrow load for $20 or half load for $10. Kindling is gratis. Please check the weather forecast before booking. Texas weather can change on a dime. Also if it is raining in Austin or San Antonio it may be bone dry here. We can not be responsible for the weather or your selection of gear. I prefer winter camping with a nice fire and a cup of coffee. We have invested in clothing and gear to withstand below freezing temps. When campers book we go through a routine to make sure all sites are ready for YOU. There are times were we have had to change or modify our plans to accommodate our "guests" . Changing dates will incur a small fee. Please be fair. Our cancellation policy is strict and it it set as such to protect campers and host alike. We set a high standard for our camp but this is to ensure that all campers will have a great experience. Pay attention to the rules. Using common sense is what we ask. Treat our property as you would have us treat your place...it's really that simple. Hope this does not scare you away. Read the reviews and you will see the common thread is that we are nice helpful folks. See you soon!
