People tend to check in during these times:
Trails are beautiful.. There are plenty of picnic benches throughout the trails for picnics or bbq time..
Great camping inside a city! Aside from the occasional airplane noise, you feel "removed."
Great place, bring plenty of water and food for a great picnic! Staff was very informative and nice.
Beautiful state park convenient to downtown Austin.
Onion Creek Bike Trail is easy and fun! A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Keep the parks beautiful, pack out more than you pack in. If you blame the park rangers for trash in our state parks, you're doing it wrong!
great place to go campin.....
On the south east side of Austin, McKinney Falls has plenty of water, waterfalls, and camping grounds for fun.
Come in late spring to see wonders!
Bring lots of water! None available along the homestead or flint rock trails. Two cool swimming holes in the park
All dried up. Pretty scene but not worth it without falls advertised
Don't forget to check out the ruins by the lower falls, shelter rock, & the old school curling iron in the visitor's center.(women would put it in the fire to get it hot & then curl their hair)
Te water is super filthy disgusting & smells bad. I'm seriously concerned about my ladybits after getting in.
Took the kids here, it was sadly overwhelmed with trash. Used diapers, bottles and tp on the ground and in the water. Told a ranger - they DON'T care! Won't be back.
On the southeast side of Austin, McKinney Falls State Park is the perfect escape from the city with minimal driving distance.
Best bathroom showers are over at the screened shelter area. No one was camping over there and they have 5 showers per gender. Warm bathrooms, good water pressure.
Bathroom showers need updating. Water was "warm" & shower head was frozen in place. They were clean though. :-)
Nice and quiet. Large RV sites. Plenty of privacy.
The trail at McKinney Falls State Park is great 3-mile beginners course for mountain bikers. Take a dip in Onion Creek to cool down post-ride.
Great hiking and biking trails and an awesome swimming hole
We love swimming/floating in the upper falls area. Watch for snakes (they will leave you alone.)
Awesome campground! Drought doesn't do falls justice. Feet first if jumping off rocks!
Showers are nice and hot and are free!
yehhh! frank andd beannnsss :)
Great place for the whole family, including interpretive trails for beginners and intermediate trails for the daily hiker. Check out the lower falls during the summer if the bacteria count is low.
excellent camping! cheap place to stay in Austin and you can fish without a license on site. firewood was expensive and rather damp.
Nice for walking and picnicing!
Close in, far out.
