Sandy Creek Park RV campground, located on the shoreline of Lake Travis, just a few miles northwest of Austin, TX, and offers a peaceful location to camp with your rental RV just outside a major city. Access to the campground is straightforward, being only a short drive from Highway 183.
On arrival, you'll find a beautiful woodland site, with plenty of space, but be aware that reservations are not allowed at this RV campsite, and locations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. The campsites do not offer any kind of hookups, so you will be relying on the rental RV's battery for power or a generator. There are plenty of drinking water spigots, and restrooms are available, but there are no showers.
Around the campground, you'll find barbecue grills and picnic areas with tables, but you'll need to bring your firewood as the cutting of trees or gathering of wood is prohibited here.
While RV camping at Sandy Creek Park, there is plenty to do, such as swimming in the lake, fishing, boating, and hiking. There are no rental facilities in the park, so you'll have to bring your own equipment, but there is a public boat ramp.
This could be the perfect escape from the city, in a quiet location, with beautiful scenery, and easy access to the lake, plus your furry friend is welcome as well.
When you book an RV in Travis County, you've opened the door to vacation with plenty to see and do.
The campground is on the shores of Lake Travis, with a swimming area just a short walk from the campsites, although bear in mind that no lifeguards are on duty. Next to the beach is a public boat ramp, giving easy access to the water, plus there is a short hiking trail that runs along the edge of the lake, with lovely views out over the water.
This is one of the quieter parks on the lake, making it an excellent location for some peaceful fishing. Either from the shore or on your own boat, the lake is good for catching largemouth, white and Guadalupe bass, plus sunfish. Stripped bass and crappie can also be found but in fewer numbers.
The Colorado River feeds Lake Travis, and all along the river south of the park, are opportunities to take to the water. You can rent a boat and explore all the creeks and coves, maybe try your hand at scuba diving, or have a go at water skiing.
Should you prefer to discover some of the natural wildlife of the area, then just to the northwest is the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge covers around 72 square miles and was created in 1992 to help preserve the habitat for the golden-cheeked warbler and the black-capped vireo, both of which are endangered, along with over 200 other species of bird. To help you spot the birds, the refuge has over seven miles of well-marked hiking trails, from the short half-mile half-mile Pond and Prairie trail to the 2.2-mile Rimrock Trail that offers spectacular views over the surrounding Texas Hill Country. The park rangers organize regular events during the year to help you learn about the refuge, and they are often free for kids.
A little closer to the east of Sandy Creek Park is the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park. Covering over 800 acres, the park offers sports facilities, hiking trails, fishing in a small pond, and picnic facilities. The kids will love a trip on the Cedar Rock Miniature Railroad, that takes you around the park grounds.
While RV camping at Sandy Creek Park, you'll need to head into nearby Leander or the outskirts of Austin to pick up supplies as there is nothing available on the campground.
A little way past Leander is the city of Georgetown, and here you'll find the Inner Space Cavern, a five-mile-long system of caverns and tunnels. Guided tours of the cavern are worth the effort, and you spend around 90 minutes underground, with the Interstate 35 running over your head!
We can't avoid mentioning Austin as there is so much to do here! One of its unique attractions is the world's largest bat colony that lives along Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge. Each night, they put on a stunning flying display, with over 1.5 million bats taking to the sky!
Then there is Austin Aquarium, with a vast range of displays of aquatic life, but also crocodiles, snakes, and exotic birds. It's sure to be a hit with the whole family.
