I camped there a long time ago so the memory is foggy. It's an OK place, quiet and shady. A few short trails that were decent. The "falls" weren't much but it was in the middle of summer and probably low on water.

Not really my choice if camping was the primary objective, but it's a great staging area if you plan to hang out in Austin. That's what we used it for so I can't really evaluate the campground fully.

My parents bring their 5th wheel to McKinney Falls when they visit me in Austin. It's a nice campground, but I agree -- it's main advantage is being very close to Austin. If you want to venture out but are looking to stay in Central TX, look at Pace Bend Park or Pedernales Falls State Park.
