Top notch! Well kept park, with a good number of semi-permanents in place. Staff assigned us a double site with full hookups because it was off season and we were staying five days. Truly was big enough for two RVs. The bathrooms are as clean as we've ever seen and the laundry facilities were better than average. On site restaurant for weekend breakfasts and Monday night grill nights. Also takeout pizza they will deliver right across the street from the RV park.
Quick commute (easy on/off I-37) into San Antonio to see the sights. We enjoyed our stay and met some wonderful folks while we were there. We highly recommend this RV park and will return if we are anywhere in the area. - PARTYOF2

We spent one night in a 44 ft. motorhome with slide-outs and a tow. Overall, Braunig Lake is OK--we've stayed there before--but spots are gravel and not as level as we might have liked. While our site was long enough to leave the car attached, it was narrow. We got the slide-outs opened, but we were very close to our neighbors. Also, the drainage wasn't wonderful. It had rained heavily and there were still large puddles around us; it was a bit muddy, too. The park is very convenient to the interstates and very easy in/easy out; that's a definite plus for an overnight stay and the main reason we stay there. The people in the office are friendly and considerate--there was a large rally coming in and they were nice enough not to put us nearby. - Carolynp

Very nice front office staff. Sites are fairly close, with a little bit of landscaping. The pool and hot tub were great. The showers and bathrooms were clean. The pizza that was delivered to our site was awesome! - Vic and Marsha

Rate is based on monthly rent including electricity. I've been staying at this park for a couple of months, mainly for its convenient location. Positives for this park IMHO (besides location) include concrete roads and level concrete sites, clean restrooms and a nice pool/hot tub area. However, as some others have pointed out, given the number of full-timers with extra vehicles and "junk" on, or near, their sites, this "resort" is beginning to resemble a trailer park. Additionally, whoever laid this park out gave no consideration to the sun, as the majority of them catch the afternoon heat. Also, as suggested by others, the restrooms and dumpsters are a long way from most sites and there is no on-site trash pick-up. While I consider this park to be acceptable, it seems to fall short of being a "resort" and is therefore somewhat overpriced. - Phaeton40AH

Over rated and pricey. Even though I was told it was only a year old the park is clearly designed and caters to long term residents. I had a back in which was long enough for my 31 ft fifth wheel but would have been tight on length for a 36 ft unit or longer. Site was wide enough to park truck beside it. However the long term residents take up their side space with their other gear. As a result they are parked in front of their spaces on both sides of the road. Result is a single lane between them. While restrooms are clean there are only 4 stalls for 200 plus sites. They are at the entrance so most sites will have to drive to them if you want to use them. Also only one set of dumpsters which are also up front and can only be easily accessed by driving one certain route. For a new park that bills itself as a "resort" the lack of convenient facilities is a clear miss. Yes the site is level and the park is clean but will see how it evolves as they are already allowing long term residents to build "structures" on their sites. Also don't pay extra for a lake side site as it is really on a large pond. Convenient to freeway without any road noise. Overall I will look for somewhere else the next time as I didn't feel it was worth the high cost. - AZJC

We stayed in a pull thru site. Easy in and easy out. Everything is concrete with super wide lanes. The campsite itself had a picnic table and a bit of grass. The trees are still small, so be prepared to bake in this concrete jungle. Our AC ran non stop. The sun beat down on us relentlessly and made us realize we need to invest in additional window sun screens. The lake, grounds and pool are very nicely landscaped. The dog walk area is not fenced, which was disappointing. The only other thing I would complain about is the cost. $47 was the discounted price. Ouch! - Camper Ally

While the people in the office were nice, the park itself was the nastiest I've seen. 98% was run-down full-timer sites. Our site was an un-level mud pit, water was broken-although was repaired while we were there, had to use Lowe's WIFI since park's did not work.Very run down. Full-timer next door used his hammer to build something on his front patio until midnight. Unhook TOAD at parking lot. Whole park is next to busy freeway. - OurRVLife

Lots of seasonal RVers, oil field workers, permanent residents. But park is not trashy and most sites are kept up. Gravel roads & all pull-through sites. Good WiFi from park or Lowe's. Unlike 1 poster, I used the WiFi on both my iPhone & iPad with no problem & signal was consistently good. Most sites in full sun. Park is close to Walmart, HEB, Walgreens, several fast-food places. And right on I-35, but I'm not bothered by highway noises. I used PPA and also wouldn't pay full price, but for $20 all I wanted after a day of sight-seeing was good WiFi & electricity to run the AC. - happybooker1

Friendly permanent residents, but the park needs a lot of attention. Grass was mostly weeds and needed mowing. Lots of junk around. Electricity was good. Water was highly chlorinated. Strong Verizon 4G signal. The free WiFi is only good for one device. I had put it on my tablet and it denied me use on the netbook. We were at the front of the park, along the Interstate and across the street from Lowes, so I used their free WiFi. Our very loud AC unit almost drowned out the truck noise from the Interstate. If you are going to spend the day in San Antonio, this place is convenient and inexpensive. We used Passport America. I would not pay full price to stay there. - Road Princess

Very nice park and well located for activities downtown. The sites are gravel surrounded by lawn. Several pull through sites, all with excellent FHUs. Plenty of room to park your toad or tow vehicle. Wifi was just upgraded and is excellent. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Lots of shade but I was still able to get a good sat connection. Park is well maintained and very clean.
The park gives directions if you call. If coming from the north take I35 to I37 and then take exit 135. Your GPS will give you other directions and you would be wise to avoid them as the suggested route is not favorable to RVs. - nmunozjr

Stayed 5 nights and 6 days while attending a conference at the convention center. The park is neat, clean, well laid out, and a fair price - especially considering how close it is to downtown, Riverwalk, Alamo, etc (10-15 minutes drive). We had a pull through - they're all long enough for vehicle and tow. Utilities were fine and worked well. They do have high water pressure, so make sure you have a pressure regulator. We had a problem on site #100. We have 4-step entry stairs and the patio on that site is higher than the gravel, so we couldn't get the steps down. We moved over to #99 and all was good. Nice laundry area - 8 washers and 8 dryers ($1.25 per load). Pool looked nice. Mexican restaurant across the street is good. Walmart not too far away. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend! - FireFlyer

Nice park, location may seem a bit scary but inside the park is fine. Sites have good room, level and very long if you don't want to unhook. We have stayed here several times while visiting our daughter. Will definitely stay here again. Nice central location ( DO NOT RELY ON GPS....IF YOU END UP ON SOUTHCROSS YOULL BE SORRY!). - 7 on the road

Under new management and they are working hard with many improvements. On the bus route so you can leave your car or truck. Sites are big and grounds look better every day. The management is committed to making this the best San Antonio has to offer. We will be back!! - Wifey

This place is under new ownership and they are very eager to please. Bathrooms are very clean. Laundry facilities clean and everything worked. Staff were exceedingly friendly. The host went out of her way to find me a great spot and was very friendly. They are working on the place and were putting a new deck in by the pool when I was there. I didn't swim in the pool but it looked crystal clean. A few permanent residents here but everything is very clean and tidy. The pads themselves need work - some are concrete, some gravel, some just grass/weeds - but they were level and good spacing. Full hookups - no problem there. Not far from the riverwalk area. - US Traveler

We were disappointed. Hot tub was not working and the pool was not clean. Cable access was very limited, close to non-existent. Showers/restrooms were clean, but shower heads needed to be replaced or cleaned. Hot water was limited. Not on our return list. - Boyds nest

We had left voice mail requesting a site for 5 nights. Someone called us back and said they had a cancellation and to come on down. When we got there, our name was not on the list of reservations. We had to back into a site where sewer hook-up was not feasible. We moved to another site but had to drive in frontways. The sites from an earlier era have been divided into two sites. Which means that one of the sites shares the sewer with the one next to it. Problem is that when you back into the secondary site, the hookup is on the wrong side. Then, while the bathroom and shower are clean, they are woefully in disrepair. Many people would refuse to use them. The campground trash was over flowing when we arrived and 4 days later had still not been emptied. The camp host is very nice and helpful. Would not stay here again. - sailor323

This park is a good park to stay for a few days while visiting San Antonio. The sites are long and level. It is a smaller park with some long term residents. The WiFi was included and worked fairly well. We would stay here again. - BigR

We stayed at Happy Trails while in town to see the sights of San Antonio. We chose this park because it was financially friendly on our vacation budget! The park has a washer & dryer on site which was great because I didn't have to leave the park to wash our clothes from our trip! The camp hostess was very friendly & helpful. Our site had some shade and a patio. This is a great park for the value! - Dory and Marlin

Not sure why this park receives so many high ratings. It is adequate at best. Many spots are close together, and there is a sewage smell in many areas that we walked by. It is a shady park with lots of pretty trees, and my family enjoyed the hiking trail. The pool is small but okay. Lots of weeds and ants. There is a huge resident population with too many trucks parked sticking out into the streets. We had to ask people to move vehicles to get into our spot. Our neighbors had a horrible time getting out because a truck was blocking exit and owner was gone for the day. This park is in a questionable part of town, though we felt pretty safe anyway. It just felt like we were at a trailer park, with lots of sites full of junk. Rules are not enforced at all. I wouldn't come here in a big rig. It is close to town and the AT&T Center, so if you're coming for a quick visit it is okay. Don't expect a typical KOA experience because this campground is just mediocre. - davis0924

In-city location, yet quiet and a set in mature trees. Great curb appeal, but the interior roads and sites could use help (some rough roads, sites were overgrown with weeds). We stayed in a standard pull through site, and had adequate space and a great patio. Wi-Fi was slow, but we were also here on a crowded holiday weekend. Staff was friendly enough, but not the best service we've received. We'd stay here again! - SnlcoRV

Really nice KOA. We have been in some "fair" ones of late, so this was a pleasant surprise! Easy access from I-10, gated, clean, and sites are level and spacious length wise, but typical of most KOA's, you're pretty close to your neighbor on the sides, but we had no problem with our slides. Lots of shade trees but we had no problem with our satellite. We tried to hook up cable but only 2 stations came in. Campstore is large and well stocked. You can buy hot pizza in the office and there is a Chuckwagon on site for breakfast. It was very reasonable and good. Staff were all very friendly. - KSAM14

Nice park in a country setting close to downtown. We had an EASY back-in site by the creek area. Ours was shaded & roomy. The dirt road didn't bother us. It makes you feel like you are almost really camping! The owner is very pleasant and on top of things, especially if the weather forecast isn't the best. We'll come back if we're ever in San Antonio again. - GypsiesAtHeart2016

We had plenty of room for our 40 ft motorhome, with plenty of grassy yard area, but getting to and from, required driving almost a mile on very rough, dusty, dirt road. It was close to the interstate highway and an easy drive to downtown San Antonio. Owners were very cordial. No extra amenities such as swimming pool or organized park activities. Will not return. - wheelen jv

We originally were looking to stay here for a week but they didn't have the availability. Terri was nice enough to give us the $30 a night rate for five nights since they were booked. The road in is a mile long and very rough, so take it slow. Check in was easy and we were given a lot of details about things to do in San Antonio and parking, although the parking rates we found were $5 more than what we were told. We had no issues backing into the site because of the cul-de-sac style layout. Water and electric were fine, but the WiFi was hit or miss and no cable. They do have laundry, but only two washers and dryers. The sites are gravel, close together and there is no shade. We were there the first week of February and hit 80 degrees twice, so if you are there in the summer, be prepared. They say they are a no frills campground, and it seems like most there either live there, stay for the winter or are some sort of local workers. It's about 20 minutes into downtown, so location is good. Aside from that there is nothing to rave about, just a spot to park the RV and explore San Antonio. If in the area again we would consider returning. - pfogleboch

We have stayed here many times. It is an excellent location for downtown San Antonio. The staff are very nice an attentive to your needs. The facilities are clean and neat. We have never had any problems with the hookups. All concrete slab and pull through. Best to call ahead for a reservation as the park stays relatively full. You can just about forget it in the winter. - mlbarry

I stayed here nine nights while in San Antonio. I called for a reservation, and I'm glad I did: The park was half-empty when I arrived, but filled up quickly.
Sites are level, all are pull-through and concrete. There are trees between sites, but no shade. There is enough space between sites to be neighborly, but I never felt encroached. The nature of the clientele -- active duty or retired military -- also contributed to an enjoyable, quiet atmosphere. No loud partying at all. On the other hand, freight trains come through regularly -- sometimes at late hours -- and announce their arrivals/departures with their whistles, but I'm a sound sleeper, so it didn't really bother me.
Another drawback is the remote location of the park on Fort Sam. Combined with the 20-30 mph speed limit on post, it can make getting around a leisurely experience.
Finally, Fort Sam has a number of gates that used to be open, but are now permanently closed -- something my Garmin GPS didn't know. You'll have to be aware of that during your maneuvers.
One of the cool things about staying here was the Army's tradition of bugle calls. You'll hear Reveille at 6, To The Colors at the end of the duty day, Taps at 11 and several others throughout the day. Suffice to say, you won't be getting *that* experience at just any RV park.
Staff in the office is friendly and quite attentive to whatever needs you might have. I asked to stay an extra couple of days, and was initially told no, but she called me back and said she could make it happen!
I highly recommend Fort Sam's RV park. I'd give it a 10 if it weren't for those trains at 11 at night. Still, I would definitely return on any return trip to San Antonio. - VA-Parrothead

We enjoyed a full hook up site on a level concrete pad with patio area. Two clean shower/bath house rooms with attached laundry facilities. There is a nice covered patio on the back of the office with tables and outdoor furniture. Camp WiFi is slow and only available in the office. We picked up 30 over the air TV stations but 30% were Spanish language stations. Excellent reception for cell phone, Jet Pack cellular and satellite (DirecTV). The park roads are well paved for walking and bike riding. The park is near the hospital at Fort Sam Houston so there was a lot of helicopter traffic over the campground. - HappiLeeRVing
