Great place for hiking and swimming. The water is nice and cool after a long, hot hike. The falls are quite lovely. It can get pretty crowded but everyone is friendly and you can usually find a spot to hang out. Dogs are welcome here too!

This park is so convenient to Austin. We stay here often. We love the hiking & biking trails. Nice, roomy campsites. Problem lately, the last 2 times we complained about the showers having no pressure and cold water right after you start taking a shower. So far nothing has been done to correct this problem as of the end of June 2013. The chiggers are very bad here. Both of us suffered for quite a while after leaving the park. Use bug spray! The staff has been very friendly so far. This park is a regular stop for us.

Really cool! An inner Austin area park. Well-conserved and well-signalized. I've got the luck of meeting a deer female with his cub first time I visited McKinney Falls State Park.

One of the biggest and the best state parks found completely within a big city. Lots of people use it as a park to get started camping before moving on to other parks, but I like to keep coming back. Weekdays and winter camping are my favorites.

It's Spring in Austin and the bluebonnets are out, which incidentally is a great time to go for a hike here. Everything is greening up, the Texas sun isn't...

This was my first time to visit MFSP and I have to say I was impressed. Located just 13 miles from downtown Austin it is about as different as night is from...
