River is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
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.

RV Site A
Cool Spot
The location is awesome. On the Colorado River, Close to Bastrop and Austin. The Tent sites are in a lovely tree lined area and the rv sites are in an open field with a group of trees in the center of the field. It looks like 3/5 rv sites are for rent, so they are fixed/stay there. Sites A and I think E/F are for rent to bring your own RV. We booked site A and while it abuts a line of trees it is in full sun. We have a tiny camper and do our cooking outside, which in July requires some shade. Even with our awnings and easy up, it would have been pretty toasty in the full sun. The owner was very kind to allow us to move our camper under the grove of trees in the center and we had a lovely time. However it probably only worked out because we were the I my ones there. If you don’t care about shade, it might not be an issue for you but I didn’t see many reviews on the RV sites so I thought I’d mention it. The beach areas are awesome and the owners are clearly working on making improvements to the campground. There’s a fishing dock and two big beaches to play by the river. The water flows but not so fast that you can still lounge about on a tube. The showers are really nice, large with hooks and a bench and while outdoors I found them charming and refreshing. My only feedback is there should be more toilets and one should be in/closer to the RV area. There are two porta potties, but for the size of the campground they’re very far and not quite enough for the amount of sites.

Very private area! We really enjoyed our stay! The showers were way nicer than other places we’ve stayed.

The staff was very on top of their game. Had an any hill and in 30 mins ant spray no ants. The doc was a little too high (60 years old) so i went close to the bank to get up on dock. Run a camping group sites 6,4,7 were great. Will come back

Absolutely fantastic experience. We had campsite 9 (which included campsite 8) We didn’t know they combined the two areas and it was nice surprise. Very big area with a little dock. Lots of trees, not too busy. The host was very responsive when we needed something. The showers were clean. There were multiple port a potties but we brought our own . There is poison ivy so if you have little ones who are hard to keep from wandering you might have an issue, but this wasn’t the case for us.

The campsite was beautiful and the staff was amazing, I didn’t end up staying because my kids got spooked but I’d definitely go back when they’re older.
