This is - or was at one time- given the current condition of almost all of the Texas State Parks - which for the most part is NOT GOOD -(Thanks to poor funding by the Texas Legislature for a long number of years) - a nice park. Unless they have fixed the signage problem, it is misleading even where to turn in to get to the park. The actual entrance is some ways beyond the sign denoting the park, and is quite confusing and even dangerous at night. It is a nice park with a very pretty creek running through it. The spots offer a lot of privacy, but the brush is in terrbile shape and needs a lot of trimming and some of the structures are in dire need of repair. It is not the fault of the staff, they just do not have the funding they need to take care of these heavily used parks. They were as nice and helpful as they could be. You'd think this particular park would be in tip top shape since the Tx Parks & Wildlife Hdqtrs is not very far at all from the park itself.

Called park at 4:45pm. Needed 2 pt's. A 33' travel trailer and a 35' 5th wheel. "No Problem" "60' sites" We got there around 7pm and since the available pt's were curved we could not get into any. Almost couldn't back out of one. Finally found 2 deep enough back-ins. $24 for 1 night. On to Davis Mtn's state park from there. Difference was like night and day. We had perfect sites, full hookups with cable tv for $22. They even cut $8 off the first nights stay because of what McKinney Falls charged us.

This is an tree surrounded park built many years ago and is showing its\' age. All the sites have 30 amp and water, except for the host sites and sites 8-20, all of which have 50 amp (the hosts sites are FHU). The park is very close to downtow Austin (10 minutes) and the airport. Gates open at 7am and closes at 10 pm. There are several sites that can handle a large (>36\') rig and several pull-throughs. The staff is helpful and courteous. There is a large day use area which features a waterfall by Onion Creek, a three mile hiking/biking trail and other venues to visit within the park. There are also eight primitive camping sites, six shelters and a lare dining hall which can be reserved. It is an enjoyably, relzxing park which is fairly heavily used all year. Rates are $16 per site (elec/water) and and additional fee of $4 per person.
