Welcome to KidzAustin.com's Camping Spotz section. This page offers a variety of family friendly camping spots around the Austin and San Antonio areas where you might enjoy taking your kids camping. Pack up your tents OR choose a place with a cabin. It's all about your definition of camping - whether in a cabin, a tent, or maybe a lodge with all the amenities available in the the hill country. Do keep in mind though, that the Austin/San Antonio areas are very popular for camping around the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons, so if reservations are possible, you might want to get to those sooner than later -- especially if you are looking for a cabin or something other than primitive camping. Some of these entries are of a seasonal nature, so please keep that in mind when reviewing the options.
