Mini camper by the river
Chris and his property are amazing! He checked in with us several times. The mini camper was very comfy with AC, cute patio and view of the river. The lower dock is so relaxing with evening shade and a propane fire. We paddle boarded and had a wonderful camping experience! Dog friendly! Thank you!

A fun property
Really cool property. Each spot has electric and running water. We camped which was a “hike in” down some stairs. The Colorado River was right at the property and had easy access with kayaks, a canoe and paddle boarding. We had a ton of fun!

Another great stay
This was our second stay. This time we also had friends join us in another site, tents and Chris's Airstream cabin. Chris was super accommodating with our group. There was plenty of space between sites to make adjustments allowing everyone to get their tents and awnings in place. We fished, swan, paddleboarded, cooked, and hung out. What else could you ask for? Even our dog had a great time playing with the other dogs on the property.

A Little Peace of Paradise
Beautiful setting with just a few other campers right on the Colorado River and less than 30 minutes from downtown ATX. Nice, quiet and peaceful with great fishing and a large well made deck right on the river. Chris is a wonderful host that is very considerate of his guests and keeps his property in great shape. Highly recommended!!!

Great for us & dogs!
Chris is a fantastic host. Site offers fantastic River access and useful amenities (outdoor shower, laundry & rest room). His big dogs are super friendly and happy to play with new furry friends. Love the dog friendly environment - they ran around off-leash, swam in the river at will and generally had a great time!

Fully equipped site in ATX outskirt
Chris made our stay comfortable and convenient. He made himself available whenever we had questions. The site was clean and fully equipped. Only 25-30 min to Austin. 10/10!

Wonderful site just east of Austin!
We had a great stay at Chris' property with our T@B Little Guy trailer. Finding our campsite was a breeze with Chris' clear directions. Hookups were convenient and easy to access. There is a bathhouse with a flush toilet, sink with running water and both indoor and outdoor showers. The property it on a river with a beautiful deck and kayaks / SUPs to use. We shared the spot with a few other campers who were friendly and respectful. It was an easy drive from Austin but we felt like we were a world away. Can't wait to stay here again soon!

Peaceful Spot close to Austin
This is a great spot just South of Austin. Chris was a an excellent host. Very communicative. The Spaces are well laid out. Plenty of room to move around and enjoy land activities, games etc.... But, the real attraction here is the river. A nice deck area to enjoy. There are some paddle boards, kayaks, and a canoe to rent. This section of river sees very little motorized craft. We saw a pair of jet skis all weekend (4th of July) and a handful of kayakers. That's it. Even though it's not far off from AUS, it's East and away from the North/South takeoff/landing path. So, there is pretty much zero aircraft noise. No road noise either. Good old fashioned peace and quiet. Sit on the deck and listen to birds, bugs, and wind. Such a great experience so close to home. You bet we'll be back.

Thumbs up!
Great place! This is a smallish property — 3RV spaces, a tent space and 2 AirBnBed campers— up the bank from the Colorado River. Connections are adequate and there’s a laundry shack and bathroom in the middle of the RV sites. Down a pretty steep set of stairs are two docks and a flat riverfront area. We happened to be there on days when it rained a lot and it was fairly muddy, but nonetheless there was good river access and boards and boats for renting. Fellow hip campers were very cool — we shot off fireworks together both holiday days and were able to let our dog play with theirs. Overall recommended— we’ll be back!

Texas River getaway
We had such a great time at this awesome spot. Chris is a wonderful host. Water area is shaded most of the day except in the morning which made this Texas heat totally bearable. Fun to hang out in the water. We brought our own toys (kayaks and tubes) and had a blast going up and down the Colorado river. We can’t wait to go back and hang out.

Excellent private quiet place!
Chris’s place is an excellent camping spot! Extremely quiet and peaceful! 20min to the middle of downtown Austin without traffic. Chris communicated constantly and offers to help if needed. I was new to the RV world and needed some help with parts and he offered to lend me a part. The restroom was extremely clean and he offers washer and dryer which we didn’t use, but they were nice machines! He has kayaks for the river, though didn’t use them due to the rain. I highly recommend this location and will always try to book it when I’m in Austin!

Peaceful River trip
We had a peaceful time at East River Acres. The view from the deck by the river is beautiful. Great for fishing or kayaking. There were only 2 other trailers there as well as one permanent trailer. It was easy to find and quiet throughout the day. The trailer is on dirt so bring with you an outdoor rug, bug and ant treatment just to make your outdoor setup comfortable. There is a charcoal grill right by your trailer which was very convenience to grill. There are some big dogs on the property so just make sure you either secure your dog or your pup is big enough to play with them. Overall our stay was lovely especially beats a big RV park if you are looking for a place to actually hang out instead of leaving each day.
