During the month of October, many people like to take advantage of the more mild temperatures to plan a camping trip. For anyone in the Austin, TX, area, you’re in luck because you can find some great camping destinations not too far away. Here are just a few of our favorites at Dependable Camper Rental, all under 50 miles from Austin.
1. McKinney Falls State Park
You can find plenty to do at McKinney Falls State Park, including camping, hiking, geocaching, biking, fishing, and more. The campground has just over 80 sites and hookups for your camper rental. The park is great for outdoor enthusiasts as well as individuals who just want to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery.

3. Pedernales Falls State Park
Pedernales Falls State Park is known for the Pedernales River that can turn from a peaceful stream to a raging river in a matter of minutes (typical for Texas Hill Country). While visitors are encouraged to exercise caution (i.e. avoid the falls…), you can also find many water activities to enjoy and stay safe such as tubing, canoeing, kayaking, and more. Other recreation in the park includes hiking, biking, equestrian trails, and more. Their campground has about 69 sites equipped with water and electricity—perfect for a travel trailer.
