We recently had the pleasure of having a 60-day stay at The Oaks RV Park and Campground in Cedar Creek, Texas. The park is located between Bastrop and Austin, Texas–close enough to several local attractions and far enough away from the city hustle and bustle to allow for quiet RV living. The following is our experience and opinion about The Oaks RV Park and Campground.
1. PRICE POINT, CLEANLINESS, AND APPEARANCE
This peaceful and rustic campground is set back from the access road off of Highway 71 between Austin and Bastrop. The price point for us was quite reasonable at $375 plus our electric usage per month for our 60-day visit to spend time with family and enjoy the local attractions. The RV park is well-kept, clean, and meticulously maintained.
2. EASE OF ENTERING AND EXITING THE SITE AND ACCESS TO HOOKUPS
We were given a cement slab, pull-through site that included beautiful oak trees. The site was entered without issue and the hookups were convenient and easily accessed. The drive into and roads throughout the park were gravel.
The Oaks RV Park provided a laundry facility and bathhouse, which were well-maintained and clean. They have a large free-standing, covered portico with rocking chairs and picnic tables surrounded by oak trees and green grass. They do not have a pool, however. The WiFi is the typical campground fare, not enough for working or streaming but good enough for general e-mailing, texting, calls, etc. They do have a community fire pit. There is plenty of space for pets to run and play.
4. FRIENDLINESS OF STAFF
Jami and Larry are extremely friendly and accommodating. While we are pretty low-maintenance guests, every question we had was answered immediately. We were greeted with smiles and felt welcomed and appreciated.
5. WOULD WE STAY AGAIN?
Most definitely. The Oaks was a quiet, rustic park (not a resort) where Mike could work in peace and close enough to visit family in the evenings and on weekends. I could explore desirable destinations during the day since it was all within driving distance (McKinney Roughs, Smithville, Bastrop, Gruene, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Sam’s BBQ, a chicken sanctuary, Luckenbach, Fredricksburg, Old Tunnel State Park, and the area is a treasure trove for geocachers).
I just want to add that the owners of this park are extremely hard workers. Not one day went by that they were not seen tending to and improving the property. The sweat equity they put into the park is admirable and inspiring and they have created a quiet sanctuary for simple RV living.
Thank you for the wonderful stay, Jami and Larry.

Great review – and great rate! I’ll have to look into it, as we don’t know yet where we’ll spend the coming winter months.
That looks like just the spot we would enjoy and can work from . I will add it to my RV park list. Thanks for the Review
What a find!!
It was perfect–quiet, peaceful, and close to everything. The owners were amazing. It will probably be our go-to place while in the Austin area. Mike’s parents live in that area, so we’ll be back often.
