Austin RV Park North’s location puts you in the middle of all that Austin and the Hill Country have to offer. We’re surrounded by natural beauty, and when the heat gets too much, there’s no better way to cool off than one of the area’s swimming holes.

Blue Hole Park is one of our favorites. Surrounded by limestone bluffs, this lagoon with natural pools is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Locals and tourists alike bring their families to enjoy the cool water under the big Texas sky.

While jumping from the cliffs is illegal, there’s plenty to do at Blue Hole. Bring a picnic lunch or enjoy the hiking and biking trail. You can even bring a mask and snorkel to check out the bottom of the lagoon.

You can enter the park in Georgetown at W. Second Street and Rock Street. The park is open year-round from dawn to dusk, and when it’s too cold to swim, the water is stocked with trout. You’ll want to bring water shoes to keep from slipping. For more information, hours, and rules, visit the website here .

One of the best things about the natural attractions around Austin is the ability to get more out of your visit than just cool stories. Kids and adults alike can gain all kinds of knowledge from the exhibits and tour guides at these attractions. A popular one is Inner Space Cavern, which is one of the most well-preserved caves in Texas. Because it was hidden for over 10,000 years, the cave is basically a living laboratory for those interested in geology, but it holds just as much interest for those who don’t want to know how it all came together.

The different tours at Inner Space reflect both interest level and fitness level. For most people, the Adventure Tour will satisfy, guiding you along a well-lit, defined path through the cave while explaining its history. For those who want to dig a little deeper, the Hidden Passages tour lets you get up close and personal on an undeveloped trail. Lastly, only the truly adventurous should select the Wild Cave tour, which tests both stamina and the ability to handle enclosed spaces!

After your cave tour, let the kids check out the playground, learn more in the mining area, and study fossils taken from the cave. Make sure to stop by the gift shop on the way out. For more information and to check out the events calendar, head to their website .

Austin RV Park North prides itself on being a family-friendly destination, so when we see something in the area that families will want to know about, we make sure to highlight it. The Austin area has some great activities and events for the whole family to participate in, but one of the most exciting and unique ones is the Play for All Abilities Park in Round Rock.

The Play for All Abilities Park was created to allow all children, regardless of ability, to participate in play activities that would help them develop skills and feel like a part of the community. Over 51,000 square feet of playground has been adapted to address many of the skills kids need to develop. Different “pods” allow for sensory experiences and retreat time. There is a playscape for all abilities as well as swings for all abilities. There’s even a life skills area. The various areas of the park were designed to stimulate and support important skill sets, including gross and fine motor skills, social interaction, sense of discovery, creativity, and strengthening exercises.

Whether using the park for play, therapy, or learning, children who are autistic or disabled now have a place to experience what they can’t on a traditional playground. This was a true joint effort of the community and the City of Round Rock, and both residents and visitors alike are lucky to have access to this great park. You can learn more about the park on their website here .
