About CampEZ in SxSAustin

Once owned by locally famous (at the time) D.G. Burrow

who was a performing Country and Western musician.

Our 'farmette' is about 2 acres on a creek.

Recent flooding made quite a mess but it's still pleasant here.

Several friendly and permanent residents.

CampEZ is so close to downtown Austin! This would be a great place to stay with a little bit bigger group during ACL or SXSW. It has a fun, laid-back atmosphere, with a definite Austin/eclectic-vibe. We enjoyed it.

Jim has a great funky little community here, it is quiet and peaceful even though it is so close to the city. The area is well-maintained with simple hot showers, running water, and even access to a kitchen.

This spot is so much more than a campsite. You have to go to understand. What an amazing community. Just go.

Very laid back camping experience right by downtown Austin. Easily accessible and includes a number of amenities including a shared space kitchen and shower facility. There seemed to be other people camping at the same time as us, but we were still able to enjoy privacy. Both nights we stayed we heard two barred owls caterwauling back and forth. It was beautiful and peaceful. We would definitely recommend staying here so long as you don't mind camping in a small, operational community!

A lot of folks wonder where the "Weird" in Austin went to after the 1970's passed and an influx of Yankees moving to town changed the culture, along with redevelopment and gentrification of some of the capital's most iconic neighborhoods.

Look no further than Jim's commune for all the Weird you can get -- and for $20 a night for out-of-towners wanting to experience the gamut in Austin, that's not a bad deal at all. However: Most camp sites are within 20 yards from each other, and privacy is second to the communal experience. With DIY projects strewn about and a number of long-term residents in trailers on site, you might be better served getting a little further outside ACL if peace & quiet is your thing.

CampEZ is a fantastic place to come pitch your tent and enjoy Austin at an affordable price while having a rich experience at the property. Jim keeps the property well-maintained and provides all of the amenities you need for your stay (an outhouse, showers, sauna, community kitchen, gazebo where you you can have access to wifi, etc.). It is a fun and unique atmosphere with eclectic and hand-built touches that exudes the love and care that has gone into creating a warm and welcoming community. Fran, the cats, and her chickens and ducks, are delightful to hang out with in the morning by the community kitchen.

Great spot to pitch a tent in the city.

Hipcamper Alex

The camp is very close to much of Austin and provides for a great place to stay visiting the city. It's a fun alternative to a hotel room, we really enjoyed the campfire circle. Definitely not your typical camping experience but still fun!

We had a pleasant stay at Jim's property. The location is very convenient and the place is very charming. Jim was very helpful and local residents were friendly. I definitely recommend this place.
