Hanging Out in Hutto

This was a 3-night stay in June and I really enjoyed the park and the weekend. I was able to work remotely on Friday to attend an online conference. The park is only about 16 months old and has RV spots and cabins (tiny homes) and everything is fresh and new and kept clean by staff. It is on Brushy Creek (but you can’t get in it because of some contamination) and there’s lots of green space in the creek bottom. There are big pecan trees and other hardwoods so there are shady areas along the length of the park. It’s a little pricier than most places I stay, but there’s quite a few amenities and sometimes you want a treat. This definitely fits the bill.

This was centrally located between a couple of dances that we hit this weekend, so it was perfect. Several reviews complained about the train noises. With the AC running and a fan, we hardly heard anything so it didn’t bother us at all. We were in the back-in sites by a solid wall, so that may have helped as well. Maybe if you spent a lot of time outdoors, you would hear it, but it wasn’t as bad at all for just a weekend. We were able to check out a little late so we could make it to church. I felt happy and relaxed the whole time I was there, even in 100°+ temps.

Type of Park: Private with Good Sam discounts

Check In: 2 pm   Check Out: 11 am

πŸ“‹ Site #305:

  • πŸ”™ Back In

  • πŸ…Ώ Site Pad: level, concrete, long enough, but a little narrow. Parking spot for tow vehicle next to it

  • πŸ’§ Water - good pressure, high enough for filter and everything to hang down

  • ⚡ Max amp: 50 - had a couple issues with Over Current at first, but it seemed to stay on after that. The Power Watch Dog tripped the power and did its thing. 

  • πŸ’© Sewer connection was in good shape. It was a little closer to the front of the site, so I used 2 hoses

  • πŸ“Ά Wifi - available but I didn’t use it

  • πŸ“ΊI picked up multiple channels just with the antenna. Even GRIT. I escaped the heat in the hottest part of the day.

  • πŸ”₯ Fire Ring w/Grate

  • Standing Grill

  • Picnic Table: hexagon shaped. Looked like wood, but was the plastic composite material. Heavy. 

  • Two of the overflow parking spaces were on the side of the site, so it was handy. This site is on a corner, so it was a little bigger.

  • There’s a little tree planted there that will give shade in a few years

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» Cons:

  • The site was a little narrow and there’s no widening at the entrance on the back-in sites. You have to bring your good backing skills. 

πŸ“ Park Notes:
  • 🚻 Restrooms - very clean and spacious. There are a couple ADA restrooms with showers that can be accessed by wheel chair and multiple household sized showers. Each one is male/female so it would be good for families with children.

  • 🚿 Showers had good pressure and multi-function shower heads. Glass doors. Very clean.

  • 🧺 Laundry facility had 6 sets of washer/dryers. Credit card or app. No cash. 

  • πŸ• Off-leash dog park was big and had a separate section for smaller dogs. There was a nice dog wash station near the restrooms. No washing of dogs or rigs at the individual sites. 

  • πŸ›’ There was a small store in the main office with souvenir items, a few RV necessities and ice cream.

  • 🚢🏻‍♀️ A trail runs along the length of the park along the creek. No getting in the creek though. 

  • 🏚 Cabins with and without lofts. All have screened in back porches

  • 🀿 Pool with shallow end and lounge chairs in the water. A hot tub that will hold about 30 people. You can literally swim across it. Small splash pad area for the kids.Covered pavilion area with large BBQ pits.

  • πŸ”₯ Large fire pit with chairs around it

  • 🀾‍♀️ Playground equipment, 2 volleyball courts, horseshoes, tether ball, hammocks, tables, porch swing (hanging from a tree), ping pong table

  • πŸͺ‘ 2 group areas, 1 was large and had a view of the pool. Residents can use it at anytime unless someone has reserved it for a private event. They have coffee and condiments there from 8-10am. They had Donuts for Dad for Father’s Day (but open for anyone). 🍩☕

In the Area:

Everything you need is very close. Walmart, Home Depot, Salt Lick BBQ, Dell Diamond, Kalahari Resorts (Indoor water park), restaurants, dancehalls…it’s almost in the City, but doesn’t feel like it. We have had some fun Munzee events in Hutto, so there’s lots around if you enjoy scavenger hunts on your phone. 

πŸ’œ Highlights of this trip:

Old Coupland Inn & Dancehall - Kenny Orts
