GET AWAY without going FAR AWAY! Feels like the middle of nowhere, but it's only 25 miles to downtown Austin and 15 miles to the charming little town of Bastrop with its eateries, shops and historic buildings. Spend quiet nights in the country listening to the coyotes howl and the owls hoot. Hike the nearby Roughs (trailhead is 2 miles away) or book a river canoe or kayak trip with one of the local outfitters. Bring the family and have a weekend event under the trees and covered shade of our Pony Pavilion! Hollis and her wonderful voice, great stories and powerful ukuleles now offer LIVE MUSIC by your very own campfire, for your private enjoyment. (See the EXTRAS category to book a $20/45 minute/weather-permitting show, or a 1-hour Ukulele lesson, or just get with Hollis when you show up at camp) Enjoy the park trails, the Happy Horse on-site Scavenger Hunt, the delightful maze of campground trails (on your bikes!) and the peace and quiet! Happy Horse Hotel is on 22 acres conveniently located between Austin and Bastrop in the Pope Bend of the Colorado River. LCRA's fabulous McKinney Roughs Nature Park is 2 miles up the road, adjacent to the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort. The camp area is 9 secluded, fenced and wooded acres laced with all-dirt flat biking and walking trails on our property. We encourage you to bring your bicycles along. The bird watching is great!

Always fun
My family has stayed at the Happy Horse Hotel multiple times and we love it. My daughter went back with some friends on this particular trip and despite the 95 degree weather, they enjoyed themselves tremendously in the air conditioned bungalow and even enjoyed a fire at night to roast marshmallows. Thanks, Hollis, for another great experience.

Came with hubby, 2yr old, and 4yr old. The cabin was so cute and the beds comfy. The campsite is really pretty in spring with all the flowers and trees. Loved the trails and the scavenger hunt was fun. Hollis did a wonderful performance at our camp fire. Very relaxing. Our family recommends!

Site 10 - Happy Horse Camping, Cabin, and RV
Wonderful place to camp. The outdoor shower has hot water and is rustic, but cute. The location is close to Bastrop and Austin. Lots to see and do! Nice hiking trails near by. The owners are friendly, helpful, and available. Nice place away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy real camping in a peqceful setting under the stars.

We stayed on night while passing through the Austin Tx area. Nice chill place and awesome hosts with lots of space for our dog to run.
