Reviews for Midtown RV Park

| Formerly my favorite rules make it a nonstarter

I've stayed at Midtown off and on, sometimes for months at a time, for years. Every time I'd come to Austin, I'd make sure I could park at Midtown. The location is perfect, with an easy bike or bus ride to downtown or the HEB grocery store on 7th. The neighbors are mostly long-term residents and very friendly, which I like. Rates are very good for the location. And, I like the management; can be cranky, but they genuinely care about the park and the residents. But, the last time I talked to the manager after recommending a friend check it out for parking her RV and being turned away, I found they've introduced a lot of new rules that make it not the kind of park I want to stay in. While they historically allowed dogs and many residents have dogs, the last time I called they were accepting no new residents with dogs. Likewise, while there are lots of old RVs in the park, they now have an age requirement for RVs (10 years). That's not uncommon, but I don't stay in parks with that rule; even when I had an RV that was new enough, I just don't like that kind of classism in my RV parks. Poor folks need a place to park, too, and as long as the rig is in good repair, it shouldn't be excluded. Anyway, the bathrooms were big and well-maintained and water pressure and hot water was always great...though there are only two for the whole park, which is too few during mornings and evenings. The laundry is usually in good working condition, and priced reasonably (though you'll need to get your quarters from the bank or grocery, as they don't have a change machine and won't make change in the office). Office isn't always occupied and the park is often full, so call before arriving. I respect them for not rapidly raising rents over the years, as it would displace a lot of poorer residents, but I also hate to see the park become so exclusionary. I can't recommend it, anymore, despite many years of being satisfied with my visits. There aren't many better parks in Austin, but this one just isn't what it used to be.

| Good location for the airport

We were looking for a park close to the airport for an early morning departure and this place is close. 95% of the RVs are residents. A few open slots for people passing through. The managers are nice and the park is quiet, but it is older and the bathrooms look like prison baths. You need a key and they give you a roll of TP to carry with you. I couldn't get in either of the 2 bathrooms in the morning. And had to resort to more natural methods, lol. So you better have your own working built in bath because 600 people in 2 bathrooms is a no go.

The price is $40. You have to leave a deposit of $25 for the bathroom key which is in an awful state and the place gave us bad vibes so we decided not to stay there

| 2004 or newer ONLY!
