Throughout your stay, you'll get to enjoy numerous amenities within the RV park, such as a community fire pit, laundry houses, and a dog run, situated in the center of the park.

Should you find yourself on land, venture 20 minutes to Enchanted Rock or 10 miles to Longhorn Cavern State Park for spectacular sights and a variety of hiking trails. Additionally, the quaint town of Buchanan Dam features a wide array of antique stores and local restaurants, as well as several nearby taverns that fill up with two-steppers in the evenings! For more adventure, try ziplining, spend a day at the local water park, or venture to the nearby slab for some swimming. There's no better place for motorcycle riding than the Hill Country - Wind through the country roads while enjoying beautiful wildflowers and trees. Plus, you'll get a glimpse of the castle on Park Road 4! You may also want to pay a visit to the nearby Gotham City Aquarium and Petting Zoo to scope out a wide range of wildlife.

We loved this place. Perfect for our family. Right next to the water, our own boat ramp, pleasant owners. Great vacation spot to chill. Close to many sites.....Longhorn Caverns, Enchanted Rock, Austin, Marble Falls, Inks Lake, etc.

Family Gathering Going Wrong

  • 1 of 5

The pictures of the house and the place were completely disguising and it was not listed as a RV parking, directions were hard to find. The house is old, very poorly maintained, dusty. Utensils in the kitchen or don't work or are old. Towels and bed sheets and comforters were dusty and we're forced to use ours, that, for God's sake, we brought just in case. AC filter was filthy and when requested to replace we're informed it was still good and we had to buy a new and replace. Wifi was off most of the time. To finish, a mouse was messing around the kitchen and got to our groceries that had to be trashed and new put in sealed container to be safe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I assure you that we take any issues our customers experience very seriously, and we will be looking into how best to address this problem. The homeowner has since assured us that the towels and sheets are consistently washed and dried, pest control maintains the area and that the home has been freshly painted. Since this home is in a rural area, the WiFi is not always efficient. We greatly appreciate your feedback as we want to make sure travelers have the best vacation rental experience at this home.

lake Buchanan getaway

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time with family @ Lake Buchnan . When we booked it was not listed as an RV park and the address was not emailed or given on the listing. So it came to us a surprise that it was an Rv park. The cell phone signals were poor , so we had a hard time finding it. For families with kids it is highly recommended that we should know the details. The house was neat and tidy and the owners were great. The water was awesome. For future tips we think the listing should include the address and directions. Next time we will be more prepared.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay, but do apologize if the home was misrepresented in anyway. After reviewing this home's description, we found it does state it's within Banta Circle RV Park, and the address along with other information pertinent to your stay is provided 15 days prior to your arrival. Thank you again for your constructive feedback and we hope to assist you again in booking a vacation rental that will exceed your expectations! Best, The Evolve Team
