Welcome to the Austin Happy Campers! We're a group of (mostly) Austin-area camping enthusiasts, with members statewide. We started in September 2006 and try to have at least one camping trip each month. Most of our trips are casual weekends at state and county parks, but we do enjoy the occasional back country adventure as well as extended excursions.

If you're eager to get out and have a new adventure or just like to hang by the fire, please join us today.
