Emma Long Metropolitan Park is my HOME PARK... I live about 3 miles from it and it's where we put in our boat. Plenty of room to maneuver your boat & trailer, one tree that you can fight to park under with the rest of...More

We camped at Emma Long this weekend. Pros: 1. Sites are cheap, and some of them are beautiful. It's worth scoping them out before you book, though, because there's a fair amount of diversity in setting, amperage, etc. 2. Great setting, with gently sloping lake...More

While the (free) hiking trails are a lovely escape just minutes from downtown Austin, the (paid) park grounds are quickly going downhill. I have camped there twice in the last month with 2 different Scout groups and I was embarrassed both times by the vulgar...More

A great place to hike & talk! Not too terribly difficult, so it's a nice leisurely hike. Dogs can run loose & the stream is nice to wade through to wash your feet off if you're like me & always wearing Chacos :) Definitely recommend!

What I love about this place is that the river is right there and anyone is able to jump in! Coming here with family or friends is what made me love this spot, highly recommend anyone trying to just come or camp to come here.

We were out for a drive to see some of Austin. Decided to check out Emma Long Park. It is a long drive through some scrub land, then when you get to the "entrance" after about 4 miles you find out you have to pay...More
