Default Campgrounds near Austin

Any suggestions for a somewhat long term campground near Austin? North end, east or west would be more workable than southside, but anything will be considered. Even a private spot would work if the hookups were there.

If circumstances fall right I may need a monthly rental for possibly a couple or three years. Internet, pet friendly and the usual large rig stuff. Probably ought to be a bit relaxed about working on the rig too. I've known a couple campgrounds that got all worked up if they saw you with a wrench or caulking gun in your hands.

Donn, we have stayed at the Old Settlers at Round Rock, south of Georgetown, close to Dell Diamond. Large area, and you know we have pets.

Commuting distance... maybe 15-20 miles. I'll be working near the intersection of I-35 and US-183, kind of on the northeast corner.

That would be close enough. I'll check them out. Thanks Ernie.

Hey Donn,
I am staying in Round Rock, west side, just across the line from Austin, in a place named Blessing RV Park. Monthly rates are $320 or 340 for gravel or paved. Includes all utilities but electric, plus internet and tv cable included also. As busy as I35 traffic is in rush hour, it could be 20 minutes closer. It is probably 8 or 10 miles closer and a quick way onto I35. Check out the web site and you can call me if you wish. Message me for phone, it you want to talk.

Lee

You definitely want to be as close as possible to work in Austin if you are commuting during normal "business" hours. Morning and afternoon traffic on I35 is at a c r a w l. My home is 5 mins from that intersection and I rarely, if at all possible, drive I35. Last year I was working right there in that same NorthEast part of I35/US 183 for a Internet company. I know there's some mobile home parks around, even one right on East Rundberg but not a whole lot of RV Park stuff. The old KOA 15 miles down on S I-35 is still there but right next to a XXX video shop. KOA pulled out of it and it's independent now (Austin Lone Star RV I think). Nice place once inside the park, neighbors not so much.
