Hidden from the road behind a grove of bamboo, and 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Austin, is the aptly named Bamboo Hideaway. As we rounded the drive and pulled up to the main house around 430pm, we were greeted by Matt and a roaring bonfire (which he apparently started around noon!). Our plans to hit the town that night were quickly changed to enjoy this wonderful surprise - a first for us to be welcomed by hosts with a fire. If you get the chance to chat around a fire with Carrie and Matt, definitely take it. They have a wonderful outlook on life and are working to shift their work lives to match their hearts, while raising two boys.

We camped near the main house in our mini school bus on a beautiful patch of grass because there isn’t a way yet to drive to the back of the property (we’re told it’s a possible future project). Bamboo has loads of area for camping behind the main house, which is quite far from the entrance of the property but closer to the main throughway to Austin in the back. While it does get quieter at night to the point you almost forget about it, it should be noted that bringing a set of earplugs wouldn’t hurt. Carrie and Matt have hung twinkle lights and a hammock in the back camping area that really take the magic of this place to the next level. They are eco-conscious folks, so if you have eco-friendly products definitely bring them so you can use their outdoor spigot. Carrie makes a line of beauty and health products with essential oils, so it might be possible to get some from her if you don’t have any.

Just 20 minutes east of Bamboo Hideaway is the Bastrop Farmers Market - if you’re staying over a Saturday, we highly recommend visiting this smaller market before exploring the dozens of markets in Austin. The local farmers and artisans show up ready to chat, sharing stories about their business and the area. While there are a lot more products being sold than fresh produce, it’s still a can’t miss. And if you’re looking for free range meat, this is the place.

Overall we had an amazing time at Bamboo Hideaway. Carrie and Matt were friendly, accommodating, and very communicative before and during our stay. We are really looking forward to seeing Bamboo Hideaway develop and visiting again in the future.

I needed a last-minute spot for a one night stay in the Austin area close to CotA. Bamboo Hideaway was exactly what I was looking for. After parking you head down past the chicken coop (eggs for sale), through the common area with chairs and a fire pit, and enter the gate. Outdoor lighting leads you to a cleared woodsie area that opens up with many choices as to where to set up. Since the host told me I was the only one booked for the evening I stayed close to the fire pit. Plenty of gathered wood waited next to the pit but I opted to bring my own. In the morning I decided to explore the back area a little deeper before I packed. There is a path that leads down to a dry Creek towards 71. I wish I had more time to really enjoy this area. I'd definitely come back. If I owned this place I probably wouldn't even have it on HipCamp as I would he enjoying it any time I could.
