The Jester King Inn

· Austin, Hays, Texas
6 acres hosted by Tipping T.
3 tent sites
This land has been used for many purposes, but at its core it serves as a perfect place to make memories around the campfire or while exploring nature. Our relaxing farmland features a climate-controlled cedar wooded bathhouse with hot indoor and outdoor showers, a common campfire and grill area, and plenty of land to explore. Campsites are spaced generously and have their own picnic tables. You'll have access to a private walk that leads to Jester King, a world-class brewery, kitchen, and farm that houses adult and baby goats. We also have a 2.1-mile nature trail of intermediate difficulty and access to all of JK's 165 acres to explore. Check-in is available any time between 2pm-9pm. There are many breweries, distilleries, swimming holes, and hiking trails within minutes of the property! So much to explore, in a convenient and lovely space to relax.

Love this spot
This was my third trip staying here. The grounds are well kept, the bathroom is clean and usable. The best thing about the camp spot is it’s right next to an amazing brewery with great people working there. If you want to get out of the city and have a nice weekend hike at nearby locations then have a couple of quality tasty beers after, this is the place.

Convenient but not great
This is my second time here and not much has changed from my first visit, not that I expected it to. I've made peace with the fact that it'll be noisy in the morning because it's a working brewery so that doesn't really bother me much since I knew it going in. On this recent trip the weather got down to the ~20s in the evening, and while the listing mentions a climate controlled bathroom it could not have been warmer than 50 degrees F in there. I'm guessing their hot water heater couldn't cope with it either because the hot water never got hot. Maybe a balmy 70-80 degrees at best. Which is odd because the hot water at their sink had no problems getting hot. Anyway skipped the shower because of that. The site itself is nothing special. It's convenient because you can scan the QR code and order a beer and pizza from your campsite, just gotta walk over and pick it up. The tent pitching site isn't great, your choice is either very dusty and ashy ground right around the fire pit area, or some flat areas under some trees one of which looked to have dead branches/possible widow makers. Bottom line is, this campsite is an okay option if you want someplace to stay that is very close to the brewery (~100 yard walk from ordering a beer), and you don't want to shell out a couple hundred bucks on a cabin, AND you don't mind "roughing it" in the tamest sense of the word. If you just want to go camping for camping sake, skip this campsite.

Great spot not far from Austin
Second time camping here and absolutely love it. The area is beautiful, plenty of common spaces for cooking, seating, hammocks, etc. Was able to walk the 2mi nature trail this time and it was beautiful. Bathrooms are climate controlled, which was so nice when the temps dropped at night. Having a hot shower was a huge plus too.

Loved the campsite. It was easy to find, clean, and the bathrooms were great. Couldn't ask for a better campsite near Austin to test out our camp gear.

Super cool little campground. Easy walking distance to restrooms and showers. Easy walking distance to the brewery. It appears that sites 2 and 4 are pretty small and not very private, but site 3 is good. This would be a great place for a big family camping gathering.
