Please visit our website at www.RiverForestHaven.com for more information and descriptions of individual campsites. 

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.

River Forest Haven is the perfect place to unplug and get back to nature. Finally, a place where being disconnected is actually a good thing.

*You can book tubes, canoes, and kayaks on our website

THINGS OF NOTE: ⁃ cell phone service is mostly non-existent ⁃ firewood can be brought or bought, but not collected

Great campsite. The little beach is really fun, and the river is perfect for floating. The owner was very friendly and helpful, even offered us bug spray. They also responded quickly to messages.

We LOVE this place, and they've made so many awesome improvements since we visited a year ago. The River Haven hosts are awesome and eager to help with anything you may need. Site 8 is spacious with easy river access (so important in the summertime). The water temperature is lovely and refreshing. Great spot for paddle boarding or tube floating. Be careful if you use the rope swing - the placement of it is a little tricky. :) We saw so many interesting bugs. Enjoy! Please respect nature and don't litter!

The river access was great. The showers were really unique and it was great to be able to get cleaned up after floating.

The camp site was absolutely beautiful, it had every thing a family needs to enjoy the outdoors including showers, boat rentals, rope swings into the river, access to swim areas at most of the camp sites, and thousands of fire flies that light up the night. There is also a resident owl!

Nothing but good things to say about this beautiful place. Property felt nice and safe. Our campsite was nice and quiet and close to the water. The land was easy to navigate with no problem. We will definitely be coming back for sure!

The most relaxing retreat I’ve had in a while. This place provided different feels as there’s a bit of land to explore. The 100 degree day had real cool evenings. Quick response and great services, with additional amenities.
Don’t miss out

I have never had better customer service at a campsite EVER! The staff was so helpful and friendly. They came to check on us frequently and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and having a good time. I have to give a special shoutout to James - that man needs a raise!

I also loved the sites! We were in site 8, which had private access to the water. Each site is tucked away into its own wooded area so you are far enough away from your neighbor that noise isn't an issue, and it feels secluded.

The only thing that could make River Forest Haven better is if each site had a picnic table and there was ice nearby so that you could replenish your coolers easily. Other than that - 10/10!
