Pace Bend RV Park Overview:

Review of Pace Bend RV Park

Pace Bend RV Park is centrally located and an excellent place to stay if you want to be close to Lake Travis and not too far from Austin and in the heart of Spicewood

The Park has 30 full hook-up sites that can handle small to large rigs.  A large number of the sites are taken by monthly renters but there are usually several sites available for shorter stays or weekends. 

The Park is clean and well maintained.  The roads are gravel and dirt.  Some of the sites are near Pace Bend Road and others scattered along the Park road that runs up a small hill.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Pace Bend RV Park has 30 back-in sites that have 30 and 50 AMP service, water, and sewer hook-up.  All of the hook-ups are conveniently located toward the middle of the site and shouldn't require extensions.  The parking pads, like the roads are rock and dirt and range from level to a slight incline - blocks shouldn't be needed to get level.  The sites are side by side and if it would ever rain there would be a grassy area outside your door.  Some sites have a rock firepit and some have picnic tables.  The majority of the side are shaded with mature oaks.  The trees might make getting into some of the sites a little challenging for big rigs - a very friendly and helpful park staff member helped back us in.

Some of the amenities at Pace Bend RV Park include:

  • very clean shower and restroom
  • laundry facilities
  • free Wi-Fi and cable TV
  • a deck off the office with a table, chairs and umbrella
  • BBQ and picnic area

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

We had a fantastic time when we stayed at Pace Bend RV Park and everything we did was within 15 minutes or less from our campsite.  We golfed at Barton Creek's Lakeside Golf Course and Willie Nelson's Pedernales Golf Club, had a great brunch plus unique Bloody Mary's and live music within walking distance of the park, listened to Larry Joe Taylor and friends at Poodies, eat some good BBQ at the famous Opies, and took a refreshing dip on a hot day at Krause Springs.   Read about our Fun Weekend in Spicewood.

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
