Looking for a Lon term stay that’s reasonably priced near Austin TX. Any suggestions? Thanks!

We used to live near Austin. There is a wide range of long term stays near Austin, run a search and you'll find them. If you expand the area you want to stay to South Central Texas like Austin, Bastrop, San Antonio, SanMarcos, New Braunfels, Sequin, Kerrville, Smithville, LaGrange, then you have a huge range to choose from. Long term stay takes away state / COE parks because they are 2 week stays. If you don't mind moving around then State/COE parks may fit for you but they are popular and will be hard to get sites for consecutive days up to 2 weeks. So you are aimed at private parks and they run anywhere from 500 - 900 per month for power, water, sewer, plus your electric depending on the amenities at each park. The more amenities (like swimming pools, WYFI, on site laundry, onsite stores/ pizza, cable TV etc) and closer to attractions like COTA the more you pay.

Search around Bastrop Texas, its just @25-30 miles southeast of Austin on highway 71. Lots of new RV parks there. Our favorite long term stay when we are back in the Austin / South Central Texas area is Colorado Landing RV park in LaGrange Texas right along the Lower Colorado River just off highway 71. We usually stay there about 2 months (winter) out of the year. Very small town charm away from the bigger city hassle but has a lot to offer. Its a ways out from Austin @45-50 miles but its a great park with swimming pool, onsite laundry, onsite propane, cable TV etc and the rate is @475 plus electric. Its a better location if wanting to day trip travel to other big cities, San Antonio to the west, Austin to the North, Houston to the East. Even Corpus Christi to the South is a day trip away.

So LJB, you did not say how much you want to spend nor how close you want to be to Austin. We lived in Austin for 25 years until we started full timing in 2013. We have stayed in nearly every park around the metro area. We now prefer a smaller park about 50 miles from the center of Austin. Very well acquainted with the owners. The park is not a resort with concrete roads and sites and no pool but has very good fhu's and is within walking distance to groceries and other items you may need. I won't mention the monthly rate because we like it and don't want to be squeezed out but it's under four bills a month for FHU's. PM me if you want and I'll give you more info.
