Our cost was per night for a one month stay.
Staff and management were very helpful and friendly. The park is very clean and well maintained. Most stores and attractions are within walking distance as the park is conveniently located.
Lots of activities for the park residents during the winter months. The sites are close, but we did not find that a problem. We plan to return next year. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We held a get together for a group of solo women RVers here. The staff was great.... friendly and helpful. The pool is nice, the Recreation Center and kitchen which we used for the get together was nice. We weren't too thrilled when we saw the side by side hookups but they worked out fine since everyone in the campground was considerate and quiet. The electric, water, and sewer hookups all worked. Internet was okay for an RV park. They provide cable TV hookups which worked pretty well. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Bandera, Cowboy Capital of the World, is a great place to visit. Don't miss the Wednesday night steak cookout at the 11th Street Cowboy Bar, the Gunfight behind the Visitors Center on Saturdays, and the Conestoga Wagon Rides on Saturday.

Nice park. We had a back-in lower level. OTA TV and WiFi adequate. Walking distance to town (5 min). Saturday morning breakfast was great and very reasonably priced. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Non-smokers beware - Bandera is a smoking town. Most, if not all bars, permit smoking. Some restaurants also allow smoking. We stayed four days and enjoyed the park, town and surrounding areas. Fun place to be despite the smoking. Real cowboy atmosphere and beautiful scenery. If you haven't been to Bandera, you have to go at least once, despite the smoking.

The staff were very friendly. During the winter this park is full of snowbirds, and there are activities nearly every night that are well attended by the long-term folks. We were there for two weeks and participated in a few of the events, and as a young family with children we were warmly welcomed. The playground is pretty great for kids and you can walk from the campground over to Bandera City Park. The park is right on the Medina river, which is crystal-clear and a great place to sit and read or skip stones. The only thing we did not care of is the layout of the sites. All of the pull-throughs are configured as "buddy-sites". If you're camping with someone you know, that's great. If not, you're counting on the luck of the draw that you'll have good neighbors. Also, the sites are VERY tight. I think there were about 4 feet between our slide and our neighbors slide. We'd stay again, but I'd request a back in site if we did. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lost Maples State Natural Area is beautiful and the drive over to it is stunning. Hill Country State Natural Area is nearby and worth a day trip or two for some good local hiking. From the campground you're less than an hour from downtown San Antonio, so a day trip in to see the Riverwalk and the Alamo are definitely worth it.

Great location on the riverbank. Facilities are clean, employees courteous and helpful. Park has feel of outdoor picnic on the river. Nice pool, laundry on site. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great "Cowboy" town of Bandera to visit, all walking distance from park! Fairly steep hill up river bank from park to town.

Stayed 2 nights. RV site, utilities, and overall park well maintained. Too cool to use pool or spa but clean and ready to go when warmer. Enjoyed annual Pioneer appreciation day hosted by Chiken Coop in town...food, drink, and dancing. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed 5 nights and loved this place. Stayed here years ago and the park is in much better shape than I remembered. Very clean park with excellent facilities, even had place to wash cars. Everyone, including office people were very friendly to us. Great location at edge of town, walk to places even 11th Street Cowboy Bar. We will return.

The managers are two of the rudest people we have ever met. The sites are so close together that you can't put out your awning. The only thing good about this park is you can walk to town - but I would NEVER stay here again. In the 7 years we have been RV'ing, this is the worst park ever! We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners must have looked long and hard to find such rude, obnoxious managers. The sites are very close together and only a few have shade. Our site was pretty level though. During our stay, they had a power problem (overload?) and it blew the electrical systems in three RVs. Their attitude was "stuff happens." The swimming pool looked nice and clean, although we didn't use it. The best thing here is the location in the middle of Bandera. We will never stay here again, since there's a lovely park at the other end of town. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our 2nd stay here. Last May there were very few folks there. February was a bit crowded, but we were very happy to get a nice, close space to the bathrooms. 3 nice clean separated showers. Strong hot showers. Manager not the friendliest, but nice enough. I appreciate the morning Zumba and exercise classes and the Tuesday night cowboy jam session. Location is the best to walk to town. That's why we will stay here again. Good rate also. Good strong wi-fi and good cable TV! We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Motorhome.

You might want to visit this one before booking. Cancelling will cost you plenty. I cancelled, and it cost $100 out of a monthly rent of $220. Very surprised that this was a Good Sam park; assume they qualified on bathhouse, pool, etc. as it was more parking lot than campground; not even close to 'resort'. Sites in the lower area are so close together you cannot put out your awning; slides almost touch. If you want to sit out, you'll be sitting at your neighbor's wall. If you want to cookout, you'll probably have to go across the road to an open area. The upper area is not as bad, but still very close. Managers not overly friendly, but we didn't experience the out and out rudeness previously described. The park looked clean when we visited. As stated, we did cancel our reservation, and probably would not stay here again due to the closeness of the spaces. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is quiet and the location can't be beat. Great place to fish. Across the street is the park where you can canoe, swim fish or picnic. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stay here every time there is a motorcycle rally and we go to Bandera. This time, we went just to go, no rally going on. When there is a rally, it is packed. This time it was very empty. Even when it is full, we have not experienced any problems with noise or people being rowdy. There is one entrance and it accommodates our 44' rig and a trailer behind us. They have a field that we have stayed in when arriving late at night so as to not disturb those who are already asleep. This is the first time we have used the pool and hot tub. They were clean, as were the restrooms that are connected to the pool. I did not use the laundry facilities, but our friend did and said they were fine. There are trees so some spots are shaded. The sites are gravel/dirt, and the road is paved. I do not think they have any cabins for rent, but they have a red Caboose that is an efficiency that you can rent, current rate is $85/night. You can access the river in a few different places and play in the water. The elderly man in the office was friendly and polite. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Motorhome.

The park was nicely located. The sites were very close to each other. The sites were fairly level. The sites were dirt with some grass. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Not a bad park. Sites are close but adequate. Took some doing for other campers and some staff to warm up to us. Rate was based on monthly stay. Park is well maintained and sites are mostly level. Area is rich with history and there are some organized activities. We would stay again but not long term. We camped at Pioneer River Resort in a Motorhome.
