Previous reviews are spot on. Clean park, very pretty, lots of permanent folks. Staff is friendly. I'm writing this for several reasons. First, this park can not easily handle the big boys. Even though I specifically asked if they could handle a 45 foot motor home with tow and was assured they could and had room however, we were told upon arrival that they had to move people around to accommodate us. The site we were assigned to was substandard, too close for all of our slides to be opened. No offer to discount the site further, but they did tell us we could move over into the grass. Not a good idea as it was raining. Further, the electric pole was so short that our surge suppressor was laying on the ground. When we mentioned it we were told that was standard, everyone laid them on the ground.

Finally, this park is located on the east side of Hwy 281. This is a busy, divided highway with no easy way to get into the park if you are headed south on Hwy 281. You must go past the park and make a u turn back to the park. When going into San Antonio you leave the park driving north, take the first exit to make a u turn to head south to San Antonio. We were here 2 nights visiting family in San Antonio and although we like the park and wish they could accommodate big rigs we would not return due to the difficulty getting around. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It takes approximately an hour to get to downtown from this campground.

This was a very nice park. Clean restrooms with clean showers. Nice big level pull-thru site with mature trees which provided nice shade. The owner met us when we arrived and led us to our site. Everyone was very friendly. We were invited to a potluck, Bingo, and an Italian night. We didn't attend them because we already had plans, but thought it was nice. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to an HEB grocery store and several restaurants.

This is a very old campsite. That is not to say it is bad. It has some very nice features. For instance, trees are mature and provide very nice shade, vegetation is mature and well-kept, structures are made of local stone, and the people are very friendly and helpful. Many site activities and a clubhouse. Unfortunately, most of the sites are occupied by long stay RVs, mobile homes, and small cottages. Also, the trees may interfere with personal dishes and antennae. Phone well in advance for a reservation, for one of the very few sites that may be available. Price was for a small motorhome, GS membership, and electric only. However, all the sites do have full hookups. Of the 155 spaces, 42 are pull through spaces. Lastly, the Wi-Fi was pretty much useless, at least for the night we stayed here. Very very weak signal. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park based on high ratings from other users. Our stay was inconsistent with those ratings. The following are some issues to be aware of before booking. Because the park is quite large and the bathrooms are located in the middle, the walk from many sites can be quite lengthy. The posted speed limit sign is 10MPH and it is enforced strictly, you may be forced to park on Hwy 281 if found in non compliance. The sites are very close together and at odd angles, which can make positioning a large motor home difficult. Make sure to know how long your stay will be, as any additional days you stay will be charged at the highest possible rate. I would not stay here again.

Nice park on US 281 North out of San Antonio. RV park is a mixture of long term/permanent folks in mobiles, park models, and RVs. We were placed near the front but really didn't hear road noise from the busy road. Wi-fi was available and worked well. There are some activities. Enjoyed our three days here and plan to return. Rate shown was daily for Good Sam. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

RV Park was on the right side of town for my jobsite and was at great location for hanging at the river on hot days. Gravel pads are not quite level, but I would stay here again anytime I work in the area. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Older park with a high percentage of full timers, however, the owners were friendly and the amenities for the price are great. Inexpensive laundry, great number of cable TV channels, and excellent WiFi. We will definitely stay here again when we're in the area. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects the monthly rate. We stayed here for 3 months. This is an older park but pretty well kept up. The Wi-Fi does not work unless you are right by the office so we had to contact the cable company and pay an extra 30 a month for Wi-Fi. There are many mature trees providing lots of shade. The one downfall of this park are the employees. While he owner is a very nice man, he rarely worked. The other workers except one, were downright rude. You learn right away not to bother to say hi when walking past them. Quite a few camp activities during winter months, but again did not participate because workers made everyone feel unwelcome. We will try another park next time we are in the area. Will not stay here again. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have lived off and on at this park. The park caters to many elderly folks that are both Winter Texans and lots of widows. There are no real frills here, but the park staff is excellent and the sites vary from excellent to good. The park owner would almost give you the shirt off his back and it's a very safe park. It's a family run business and they actually care about their guests. If your looking for a nice quite RV park with lots of trees and not in the crazy San Antonio area, then this is your park. The Wi-Fi service covers mainly the front part of the park but you can easily take your computer up to the office and and sit outside in the beautiful Texas sun to check you mail. Park also has excellent cable TV. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We traveled to this park in a group of 8 rigs and had made our reservations well in advance. But when we got there, we discovered that the sites which had been assigned to us had been given to another group. Therefore, we were put into sites that were difficult to get into and were inferior to those promised. The staff tried to direct the parking of one member of our party and caused him to hit a tree limb which damaged the roof of his camper. The staff member acknowledged responsibility for the accident but the park owner refused to repair the damage. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for 4 nights. An older park with a lot of long term rv's and park models. Streets fairly narrow with overhanging trees. Lady in office was very friendly and offered to help us park. Quite a few snowbirders here. Just 20 miles north of San Antonio and the River Walk. Would stay here again when passing thru. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice well kept park with paved, level, shaded sites. Friendly, helpful managers. I had reservations and was met as I pulled in and guided to my site. Checked in after hooking up. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Texas 281 RV Park for two months while I had work in the area. There are other reviews here that describe the park and all its amenities and they are all very accurate. For the most part, we found the campground personnel extremely friendly. The only complaint we had was that in our opinion the managers seemed to kowtow to a certain few permanent residents as far as the complaint department goes. Apparently there are one or two people there who take it upon themselves to complain whenever they hear a dog barking. After two complaints, you receive a note from the office that there has been a complaint and that there are consequences. Now, I am in full agreement about their dog barking policy. There is nothing more annoying than a constantly barking dog. But these dog nazis take it to such an extreme to the point where people jump to shush their dogs whenever they make a peep. The short-stay campers probably will not run into this problem but if you plan to stay there any length of time and you have pets, keep this in mind. We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This little jewel of a park located at the base of the Texas hill country has been a delight to visit. There are big oak trees, paved pull-throughs with FHU including 50 amps for big rigs like ours, free Wi-Fi and free cable for daily or weekly visitors - charge for monthly cable. Nearby huge HEB grocery and Home Depot. Park is neat as a pin, has a nice laundry room and very friendly staff. It is an older park with a number of friendly permanent tenants. We came in for 2 weeks but stayed for a month. Great rates for monthly visits too! We camped at Texas 281 RV Park in a Motorhome.
