Located on the grounds of the Alameda County Fairgrounds, this park is the best choice in the area. The staff and workampers are friendly, helpful and the park is very quiet at night. Utilities are all placed at the rear of the back in site, which makes for a very long sewer hose-30 plus feet! I'm sure that the RV store next door will be happy to sell you more sewer hose, as they did last time we were here. My slide is only 4 1/2ft from our neighbor's slide. Only 30amp at this site. Clear sky for sat dish. The plusses are location, location.

Quiet park with level pull thru sites, utilities were good- the exception being the wifi. An hour per device and once logged on, the hour starts and that is it. They are working hard to keep the grass green during this long drought period. Trees offered shade, but you need to pay attention to where your dish needs to point for sat service. The park was very quiet at night.

We have stayed here before and will return when in the area. Plenty of maneuvering room with wide streets. Sites are long, wide, level, gravel pull thrus and all utilities worked well. Bathrooms were spotless and laundry was very nice. Sky is open for sat dish with orange trees between sites and surrounding the park. The folks in the office are excellent. Perfect stop along Hwy 58.

Friendly check in, escorted to site which was wide and long enough for our 39 ft rig. Streets are not wide enough for the 90 degree back in sites, so getting in was not too easy, but can be done. Sites are screened by foliage in between, with concrete patio and vehicle parking pads and gravel for the RV. Mostly open sky for sat dish. Quiet, with beautiful views of the mountains and right next to a golf course, we enjoyed our stay.

Rate reflects monthly stay, electric is additional. We spent three months here at Desert Shadows avoiding winter. RV sites are mixed throughout the resort with park models and most have citrus trees. Short term pull thru stays are in the center of the park. Utilities are very good and trash is picked up at your site twice per week. There are lots of activities available including twice monthly pancake breakfasts, as well as exercise, dances, etc. Good mix of folks of all ages, though not much of a kids park. Costco and In N Out burger are just out the back gate. Close to freeways I17 and101, but not too noisy. We will be back.

This is an excellent park that was laid out with RV'ers in mind, imagine that! Roads are wide with correctly angled pull thru sites that are easy to get into and all utilities working properly. Since we were here during a cold snap, windows were closed and noise was not an issue. Personnel were friendly and welcoming. Easy access from I-10 but far enough away to not have traffic and noise. We will stay here again when in Tucson.

We have stayed here before and this is a very nice park not too far off I-10, with easy on/off and close to Old Mesilla. The site was a spacious back to back pull thru on raked crusher fine gravel, with excellent utilities. Some highway noise, but not bothersome with all windows closed at night. There are quite a few rules here, but they keep the place looking good.

Good park far enough from I-10 to be quiet at night. The staff was friendly and escorted us to our pull thru site with everything working well. This KOA offers breakfast and dinner in their restaurant and we had a good breakfast before we left the next morning. A very nice stopover in west Texas.

The owner escorted us to a clean, level, long pull thru so we didn't have to unhook, as we were just there overnight. Everything worked well and he made sure that we had open sky for the sat dish. The park is right on the banks of the North Llano River. The weather was chilly, so we weren't able to explore the park.

We were in a long concrete pull thru in the 600 loop. All sites in the loops are arranged like spokes on a wheel. Excellent utilities, wifi and very nice clean landscaping. The park is gated for security and plenty of Border Patrol presence in the area The staff was terrific and there are many activities going on in the park. The park provided ham for the Christmas pot luck dinner in the activity center. We really enjoyed our stay here, hope to return.

We stayed here as part of our tour of Retama Village. Our site was a very long, level back in with excellent utilities. This is a beautiful, well run property. They have lots with rv pads and homes with covered rv storage for sale here, in a park-like setting. The residents were very friendly and there are all kinds of activities that you can take part in, if you wish. The clubhouse/recreation center has a gym, pool and kitchens.

Well located near restaurants, shopping and the bridge to Padre Island. Our site was a long concrete pull thru that was level with good utilities and access for satellite dish. Wifi was just OK, we used Verizon hotspot and it worked fine. The staff was both friendly and helpful. The Saturday breakfast was tasty, inexpensive, and a good way to meet your neighbors We would stay here again.

This campground is situated right in San Antonio on about 40 acres of pecan trees. Our pull thru was long and very level, although I saw some other sites that seemed to need blocks to level. Plenty of space between sites, which all included tables. The utilities were well placed and worked well. Quiet at night while being in a large city, with gated entry and night security. We had one of their pizzas one evening and it was delicious! A bus stop just across the street will take you to the Alamo and Riverwalk, etc for $1.20 each way. The staff was very friendly and helpful, with direction and things to do in the area.

We arrived in a rainstorm and found friendly, helpful staff and a terrific campground situated around a small lake. The roads are wide and our pull thru was long and level enough to stay hooked up as this was just an overnight stay. Utilities were excellent. The entrance is gated, with a code to enter, so security is not a problem. It was very quiet at night.

Very nice park with long, concrete, easily accessed, level back in site that included a table and grill. Good space between pads and quiet. All of the utilities were in good working order and well placed. Open sky for satellite in most sites. This is a good location for the gulf beaches, restaurants and attractions.
