During our trip, we spend a few days exploring San Antonio. During our stay, we set up camp at the San Antonio/Alamo KOA.

RV Park Review
From what we could tell all the sites in the campground were well maintained. Our site was very clean and had all we needed.
In addition, you can tell that the San Antonio/Alamo KOA employees took great pride in the campground. There was always someone around making sure that everything was very clean and that the guests were happy.
The campground is located in San Antonio and is only about 10-15 minutes from downtown. In addition, when you are in the campground, you do not feel like you are surrounded by highways and the hustle and bustle of this large city. It truly is serene it was beyond our expectations.
We highly encourage anyone looking to stay in the San Antonio area to make reservations and enjoy this park. Of course, you don;t even need an RV. They have everything from RV sites, to tent camping and even cabins right on the water!
We stayed at this KOA for two nights. However, we did not spend a lot of time at the park.
Our time was short in San Antonio, and we wanted to see as much as possible in our short time. However, the time we did spend at the park was great. The staff treated up well and helped us plan our day in the city. In addition, they made sure we were comfortable in the summer heat.
Out time here was in the middle of August, and the temperature was sizzling. Thankfully, they have a great pool onsite. After spending most of our time walking around San Antonio the pool was a welcome amenity!
We do not tow a car with us. Therefore, transportation is an important factor for us. This KOA has a public bus stop just outside of the gate. Thankfully, it was able to pick us up in the morning and drop us off in the evening. All for a reasonable fee.
Our stay here was fabulous. Therefore, we highly recommend checking out the San Antonio/Alamo KOA if you plan on visiting this great city.
