Review

Intro

The recently opened Rock Dog Campground is exactly what visitors of Reimer's Ranch Park needed. Rather than making the half hour drive to and from the Austin city center, outdoor enthusiasts (namely climbers) can now have their day at Reimer's, and then spend the night only six miles away at this really quaint and cozy campground. 

What Makes It Great

As of now, it's tent camping only on the weekends, but the friendly owners of Rock Dog envision a bright future for their humble campground. Not only do they expect Hamilton Pool goers to start using their space during the warmer months, but they also see a General Store and Taproom adding to their budding character.  As for the details, Rock Dog is, as aforementioned, currently only open on weekends. 

Who is Going to Love It

Tent camping (no reservations) is available for a $5 fee that you pay at the gate when you enter. Friendly dogs are more than welcome, and there are port-a-potty's onsite.  If you find yourself in the Milton Reimer's Ranch area on a weekend climbing or mountain biking trip, definitely check out Rock Dog Campground. Friendly staff and an all-round great community.
