Make a Grand Getaway to Happy Horse! We're a small, quiet privately owned and operated, totally tidy and safe place to spend quality outdoor time alone or with family and friends. In business since 2001, we are located between Austin and Bastrop only 2 miles from LCRA's fabulous McKinney Roughs Nature Park with its 18 miles of glorious river and highland trails open to horses and hikers.
6 RV/tent spots with gravel pads, water and 30 amp hook ups. NO DUMP STATION. Fire rings, outhouses and open air, enclosed, hot water shower. BBQ grills, picnic tables, a covered pavilion area, trails on site and time away from the hustle and bustle. Plenty of wood on site! Many horse pens and 2 covered stalls for those of you traveling with horses.
On site owners Hollis and Beaux are at your beck and call for whatever you might need. We have been a "Horse People Only" campground for 15 years but are now opening our facility to people who just want to be camping and enjoying some outdoor time in the country.
GET AWAY without going FAR AWAY! Feels like the middle of nowhere, but Happy Horse is 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 Roughs 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! Bring a crowd and the Happy Horse Band will play just for you! Enjoy the music, the campground and the peace and quiet!

Hollis's place is amazing, cute and very peaceful, she and her husband care about their customers, they are very friendly and they make you feel at home. They gave us a nice concert at night, she and her ukulele are wonderful. We will definitely be back. Thank you very much Hollis for everything! Love it!!
Hollis and Beaux were so welcoming and warm! The site was absolutely perfect, such a wonderful spot to rest and relax. Loved the campfire provisions, the outdoor shower and the sweet serenade we were lucky enough to get from Hollis. Definitely a wonderful memory for our first camping experience with our pop up!
Amazing stay at happy horse camp
We absolutely loved our stay at Happy Horse Hotel. Hollis & Beaux were warm, welcoming hosts and just so hospitable. The property is beautiful and well-cared for. My kids loved running around, biking and visiting the horses. We loved drinking coffee, sitting in our hammock and watching the sunrise. Hollis treated us to live music one night- such a treat!
It was a really lovely site with very welcoming hosts. They have such great hospitality and super cool hand printed shirts! Coming back when it cold. The horses were so peaceful and added such a nice warmth to the site.
We had a wonderful 1 night stay here! Beaux was extremely welcoming and accommodating. We were easily able to hook up to power and water. Definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing peaceful night!
Excellent camp and gracious hosts.
Happy Horse is a unique place. Cowboy/girl with a touch of bohemian flair. Hollis an Beau were excellent hosts. They did an excellent job pandemic spacing all of the guests, maintaining social distance while delivering songs and taking photographs to share with us.
The camp is well planned, clean, and very charming. Having horses in camp only adds to the real country vibe of the place. You can see the pictures but, the vibe can only be experienced. The place just had a very peaceful air about it. Something owed to the love put into it by the hosts and guests gone by. And as others have mentioned clean, odor free outhouses. Even in 100°+ heat.
Refreshing outdoor showers (heated even) to boot.
I can't wait to experience to a non-pandemic Happy Horse. with live music and guest interaction. I can see it being a really fun place to whoop it up and mellow it down.
The Sneaths will return again.
We were greeted at the gate by Hollis and she and Bo guided us right into our spot! Everything was so well communicated (directions, etc). The property is gorgeous and you can tell they love what they do by how perfectly they have it setup for guests and all the comforts provided! Also they are wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed talking with them! My husband and I will definitely be back!!!!
