Escape to the bucolic Round Mountain Ranch tent sites in the Hill Country of northern Travis county, Texas, a short distance from Austin.  Hike the trails winding through the  property, or hang your hammock and read a book, sip a local brew, and enjoy the celestial light show. And in Springtime, chirping frogs will lull you to sleep when the private pond is full and teaming with life.

The entire property is fenced and gated. Each campsite is a very short walk from your car and features a picnic table, fire pit, grill and ambience galore. Tree-shaded and level, each site is private and serene. There’s an indoor dishwashing station and a great tasting water source. And fear not, the toilet and shower facility is clean, well lighted and private.

Michael was a great host, available as we arrived to help get us settled, checked on us just enough throughout our time there. He has a very nice property and is doing some terrific work developing it to be a top notch experience. Sites are each private and close to parking area. Had a nice stay and would definitely stay again.

Michael was great and I’m very jealous of his home/property!

There was a bit of noise from local farms/dogs, but I’d still recommend for a night/weekend camp out.

Cool little spot. Everything was kept up really nice and the hosts were great. The bathroom/privy was a nice touch. Not as "out in the wild" as I would have liked, but was pretty much the same thing as going to a State or County park.

We had an excellent time at Michael’s ranch :) it was well-kept and facilities were excellent. You may hear other campers at other sites faintly, but it’s about as private as a state or county park might be. We booked pretty last minute with Michael, but he was accommodating. For future campers, I would suggest getting your directions and everything you need from Michael sorted before you leave the city, as your cell service may be spotty.

Round Mountain Ranch is a well thought out property with nice campsites, views, a trail and great hospitality. Michael is super kind and has practically built the place by hand..including the very impressive shower and composting toilet structure. I definitely recommend it and will be back in the future. Thanks Michael!

What a perfect get away! Michael was an excellent host and the work he has done to make his property hospitable is so impressive! We loved the peaceful and beautiful land and the neat and private campsites. Each spot had a unique look and vibe. The sites are far enough to be private. This was a perfect alternative to a busy state park and we loved meeting Michael. We plan to be back!
