“Close to town, Trees Galore!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Always friendly. We've stayed here several times during different times of the year. Close to town and the Riverwalk if you want to drive. Easy to get to I-35 or I-410 which connects to I-10.

Sites are expansive compared to most KOAs. There actually is a little space between them.

If you are a bicyclist you have a connection to a very nice hike/bike trail. Trail follows the creek before moving into woods and fields. Very nice ride!

We stayed 3 nights in our 36' - 5th wheel...the spaces were quite wide and long, no problems pulling in. One of the features that we enjoyed is the local bus service with a stop directly across the street from the entrance to the park with service directly to the River Walk and Alamo.

Park was clean with plenty of shade trees, however no interference from the trees for our satelite dome. The squirrels were very busy storing the nuts from the trees and quite a few nuts fell on our roof and park maintenance climbed up and blew them off the morning we pulled out.

We highly recommend this park and would return if ever in the area.

We stayed at the San Antonio KOA as we passed through on our way south. The park was very well organized and clean facilities. It is conveniently located to San Antonio. Not for you if you are looking for the woodsy, secluded, campsite.

When we arrived for our stay we were greeted kindly and courteously by one of the employees that verified our information and showed us where our RV spot, restroom, dog park, playground, café, and dump stations were. I love how they have the spots spread out so you can either pull-in or back-in to your spot with no problems, they will even help you get into your spot. If you need help finding a place or restaurant down by the river walk or downtown they will help you.

The San Antonio KOA was a beautiful campground. We had a little trouble finding it but once we did it was worth it! The grounds were well kept, it was secure, the staff was friendly and helpful. They had a very well stocked store. Best of all, there was a bus stop across the street and they told us how to take the bus downtown and back. We had a lovely time in San Antonio. Staying at the KOA made it that much better.

Nice, shady sites. Bus to town right across the street! Clean laundry room. Best of all was the helpful and friendly staff. I enjoyed staying here and will definitely stay here again. Nice location and felt safe.

We stayed there in the late spring and were very pleasantly surprised with the setting and the folks who run it. We wanted to visit San Antonio and had our RV so were looking to stay nearby. The place was amazingly secluded and private despite having a bus stop for the downtown River Walk trip (15min) just outside the gates. Because of the surrounding plantings, we really could not see any sign of the city.

The place was clean & well run. Quiet & gated location. Reasonable rates for an urban campground. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend the place to fellow RV'ers, tent'ers and those who would use the KOA Kabins.

Room Tip: Don't know which are better. We were in a slot toward the road and really did not hear the nois...
