It was a super convenient location by downtown San Antonio, but it was too hot at night to sleep comfortably. We went in July, so I recommend going during the winter. There is a pool and a small store, but there wasn't much else to help guests escape the heat during the day. The staff wasn't very helpful. They didnt... More

So glad we picked this campground for our stay in San Antonio. Very close to The Alamo, Riverwalk, and downtown San Antonio it was an easy on/off the highway -- but far enough away so you didn't have the traffic noise. There is a train track nearby, but it didn't bother us at night. The staff is friendly and helpful,... More

First, let me preface this review by saying that we stayed over July 4th weekend so things may have been a little out of the ordinary. We had no problems checking, the clerk was fast effiecient and provided us with a map, clear directions, an events flyer, and city bus information. We were even able to check in early, we... More

Beautiful large full service sites with lots of mature trees. Very clean, nice pool area, lots of nice dog walking areas. Probably the nicest KOA I've been to. Not hard to see why they've won some awards. Staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The old guy that runs it is kind of miserable but mostly you deal with fantastic staff.... More

We came to San Antonio for Spring Break, & we've stayed at KOAs before so that's why I chose this one. I am very glad we did, it was beautiful. Well shaded, easy to pull through sites. Our daughter rode her bike allover the place, she especially liked being able to go down to the river. The staff was friendly... More

We were headed for a different campground with our RV and soon saw KOA San Antonio. We pulled in and they had room. The place is gated. On the river with a bike trail. Gorgeous pecan and oak trees. Campers and staff were super friendly and service was beyond excellent. I am not exaggerating. We kept extending our stay that... More

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The grounds are nice and shady and a lot of the sites have brick patios with picnic tables. The only negative were the burrs in the grass that covered my dogs every time we walked them. As the grassy areas were mostly weeds we could not find anywhere without these aggravating burrs...

My boyfriend and I visited San Antonio for a weekend and needed a safe place to crash for the night that was close to downtown. This campsite is GATED, so I definitely felt safe staying there. There is a great little food truck that serves food in the park and a neat playground, basketball court, and a POOL for entertainment.... More
