Emma Long Park
Emma Long Park's spacious 1,115 acres rest on the edge of Lake Austin and provide an unmatched scenic view of the Hill Country that simply can't be seen from Austin's crowded metropolitan area. Enjoy camping, hiking, boating, sand volleyball courts, beaches, archery, and any other recreational ventures with all the modern conveniences of actual bathrooms and electricity. Emma Long is also a leash-free zone, so dog lovers can use the park to give their pooches some free space. Parking here asks for cash, and camping on the green requires more green. But if you need some distractions from city life, Emma Long Park just might do the trick.
