    Near a restroom but lacks the shade that other sites enjoy.

    Great camping inside a city! Aside from the occasional airplane noise, you feel "removed."

    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!

    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!

    Christopher Clearman · July 14, 2013
  • Katie F.

    Bring lots of water! None available along the homestead or flint rock trails. Two cool swimming holes in the park

    Katie Fitz · July 7, 2013
  • Karri S.

    All dried up. Pretty scene but not worth it without falls advertised

    Karri Sanchez · July 3, 2013
  • Ariana H.

    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.

    Great campsite.

    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.

    Jean Curtis · January 4, 2013
  • Jean C.

    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.)

    Kristin Hoenicke · June 18, 2011

    Awesome campground! Drought doesn't do falls justice. Feet first if jumping off rocks!

    Bill Lucas · May 29, 2011

    Showers are nice and hot and are free!

    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.
