Austin Lone Star RV Resort Overview:

Review & Rating of Austin Lone Star RV Resort in Austin, Texas

Austin Lone Star RV Resort sets the standard for what all private parks should aspire to become. This is a great National Award Winning Park located about 12 miles south of Austin on IH 35. Some of what makes Austin Lone Star one of Texas Outside's favorite campgrounds includes: good amenities; well treed, landscaped, and shaded sites; spacious and level parking pads; individual showers and bathrooms; friendly and helpful staff; and a property that is well maintained.  

If you're coming to explore Austin and the surrounding area, Austin Lone Star RV Resort is a great place to stay.  It's on the IH 35 frontage road with easy access either north or south.  

Access to the campsites is gated and requires a code to enter 24 hours a day.  After registering you'll be guided to your site.  The roads through the park are paved but the sites are crushed gravel.  Big rigs shouldn't have any trouble getting into the pull-through sites.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Austin Lone Star RV Resort has 154 RV sites and 9 cabins.  However, only one-third of the RV sites are available for daily and weekly rental - the rest of the sites are for full-timers or monthly rentals.  Over 50% of the sites are pull through and all of the sites have 30 and 50 AMP, sewer hookups, water, grill, and picnic tables.  The pull-through sites are around 65 feet long and 14 feet wide and have two sewer hook-ups - one in the middle of the site and one at the rear of the site with the water and electric connections. 

Some of what distinguishes Austin Lone Star from other private RV parks is that the sites are spacious, separated by landscaping and have lighted electric outlets which is very helpful when trying to plug in when it's dark. You shouldn't have any trouble getting level in any of the sites. 

Austin Lone Star RV Resort also has nine cabins (park models), five of which are one-bedroom and the other four are studio (hotel style) cabins.  The 399 square feet one-bedroom cabins will sleep four and they have a full kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, stove, utensils), bathroom, living area, and dining table.  There is also a deck/front porch with chairs plus a picnic table and grill.   The 250 square feet studio cabins sleep two and have a bathroom, small refrigerator, and microwave.

Some of the other amenities you can enjoy during a stay at Austin Lone Star Resort include:

  • a heated pool
  • small store with grocery staples, RV supplies, and some souvenirs
  • a lounge area with a pool table, tables and chairs, ping pong table, and a TV

  • playground, 2 horseshoe pits, and a volleyball court
  • very clean individual showers and restrooms

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

Every time we come to Austin we experience something else to see and do. We like Austin for the music, the fun bars and excellent restaurants, the great lakes, special events, and all the outdoor activities like golf, hiking, boating/kayaking, biking, or Frisbee golf. To find some fun things that we like to do in Austin, read the following Thank God For Weekends: Exploring Austin, Boating the Highland Lakes or Lake Austin.  And check out our Austin Page loaded with things to see and do including our Top Ten Things To Do In Austin. 

We love going to Barton Creek Pool, riding bikes around Lady Bird Lake, going to Bob Bullock Museum, boating on Lake Austin or Lake Travis, and we enjoy attractions like Top Golf or IFly (indoor skydiving) and lots of excellent restaurants.

We also love golf and Austin is home to some of our favorite Texas golf courses.  Use this Austin Golf Map to quickly find a course, read our review of the course, and book a tee time.

Cool Nearby Activities:

As mentioned above, Austin offers something for everyone - shopping, sports and recreation, nightlife, history, live music, and culture. You shouldn't get bored from a lack of things to do, in fact you need at least a week to really experience what Austin is all about. If you like lakes and boating, visit Texas Outside's boating section to determine where to boat, the golfing section to find local courses, and the discover Texas section to learn more about Austin and the surrounding area.  Here is a link to our clickable Austin Map which also has our Top Ten Fun Things To Do In Austin.

Texas Outside Campground Rating System

Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”.  Each park is rated on:

  • Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
  • Park Condition:  the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
  • Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
  • Campsites:  low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
  • Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
