Myself and another friend made reservations at this campground a couple months in advance. Upon arrival, the employee there found no record of our reservations. We were given specific site numbers at time of reservation. The employee there told us those site were no longer open. We were shown 2 other sites they felt we could fit on (our RVs are 42 feet long). We made it onto our sites precisely at the time the water went out. This was resolved a couple hours later but it added to our frustration a bit. The handle on my site's hose-bib was completely broken off. I used a pair of pliers to turn it on and off. The utilities for my site were on the wrong side of the RV and all the way to the back of the site. Getting into the campground with longer RVs were a bit treacherous as well. Dogs are allowed to roam freely here and dog poop was found everywhere :( The final negative here was when we were paying. While our rate of $25.20 was honored, we were told the rates had went up to $40. This was not a $40 per night experience in my opinion and I camp at scores of campgrounds, hundreds of nights annually. Carefully consider if camping here is right for you. - jbeletti

This is a very friendly camp. I have been many times. The sites are not on the Guadalupe because the river does flood. Tent camping is on the river. What brings me back is the friendly atmosphere and exceptional "Pet Friendly" attitude. - Teri`

Mermaid Cove is a small park way off the beaten path at the upper end of Canyon Lake, which means it is extremely quiet and peaceful. The sites are relatively level and they give you a grill to use if you don't already have one. The campground hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. They do have a very liberal pet policy (meaning that there isn't one) but for the most part campers do the right thing. Pets are not required to be on a leash unless they become a nuisance or are aggressive. We stayed here for 3 weeks but reluctantly had to move to an RV park closer to Bulverde as my commute to work made it more cost effective to change parks. - Gypsy Cat

The park is under new ownership since August and they were born to own an RV park. They were the most gracious of hosts and went out of their way to satisfy all my requirements. All the facilities which I used which included the restrooms, showers and laundry were spotlessly clean. I would recommend this park without any reservations. - BEAR601

As this is the first review in a long time of this park, let me start by saying the orginal owner has repurchased the park after several years. He takes great pride in this property as it was his grandfathers ranch. The office is in his grandfathers barn, built in 1947, and very nicely redecorated. After check in he met us at the site to help us in and asked if we found everything to our liking. He apologized for the stickers (as others have menitioned) and said he was working on getting rid of them. Our 120 lb goldenpoo/Great Pyrenese did not get any. Everything worked great, no cable but stations from Austin and San Antoino can be recieved. Post Office is in front of park, but we did not hear a thing. We will definitely stay here on our way back north to OKC this sping. - rmartin

Was going to stay 2 weeks. There was no place for dog to walk without getting sand burrs. Owner was nice when I had to call to get site changed. Asked for pull through when I emailed, and was assigned a back-in. Decided to move closer to San Antonio after one night. Never saw any office personnel. Left money in locked office slot and moved on. - pascobaby

The park was full this weekend but hardly any day users so it was quiet. The trails are good, river phenomenal (some kids were playing in it but most folks were not) Temps were 40-70deg and sunny. Verizon signal spotty but txt worked. Our trailer is 35' and arriving at 730pm Friday, there was only one spot left that would fit our trailer, the others were not even close. Park rangers were diligent about keeping campers from getting too loud and rowdy. Blue bonnets were out in full force and the photography opportunities very good by the river as well. - starcraft35

As stated in a previous review, this is NOT a state park. The SP is down the road. Campground is very basic with lots of full-timers and are friendly. It does back up to a working ranch and if you are looking in that direction, it's nice. Some really nice tent camping sites along the river however. Good utilities, and size of sites, but all are grass with some level and others not. River access is difficult at best, very steep and lots of big rocks to walk through. Due to lack of rain, river was hardly flowing and dirty. This place needs some serious updating and maintenance. Probably won't come back. - wakincowboy

The staff was very helpful and friendly as well as very flexible with check-in and out times. The river access was beautiful and not crowded. It does require some physical agility in order to reach, as most points of entry are steep. I had no issues with the restroom but my husband said all the men's side were clogged. We enjoyed our stay and will be returning to enjoy more time on the river. - scarlet lace

We stayed in Turkey Sink, space 52. Site was pretty level with one block needed on front tires. Real nice hiking trail down to the river, where another trail followed river for 1/2 mile. Great photography opportunities. We are also able to access Honey Creek State Natural Area for a guided hike, which the hold every Saturday at 9:00 am.
Cell coverage and OTA channels were fine and we were able to get our DISH satellite working. Will definetely stay here again. - Davishouse2

Overall the park is great. The trails are well maintained and the facilities are top notch (considering it's a state park). The camping sites are large and plenty of room to move around. Though the bathrooms are clean overall, the shower area within the bathrooms were in need of some attention.
The family has stayed at numerous state parks and this by far has been best maintained. - Pigcrib

Very nice state park. The bathrooms were the cleanest we have seen anywhere. The sites are large and wooded in the Turkey Sink area. Some of the sites, while large are a little tight to back a big Motorhome into. Watch the overhead trees. Water and good 50 AMP service at sites. Great hiking, the river is breath taking, we and our dogs had a wonderful time playing in it. The Discovery Center is excellent and well staffed. Park hosts were as good as they get, very helpful. Wifi isn't available at the sites but you get a good signal at the bathrooms. Cell service isn't good, and we could only get 4 antenna TV stations. Wish we had known sooner, Tweedy's an excellent RV supply center, is only 7 miles down the road. Good if you need supplies or parts. - The Sandbox

Mostly monthly rentals. Our site was right next to the road and close to Hwy 281. A little noisy at times. WiFi worked very good. - Chuck McC

We usually stay here when visiting our son in San Antonio. This is an older RV park. I could say "an oldie but a goodie." Almost the entire park is inhabited by permanent residents, but they keep several sites open towards the front for short term visitors. The office staff is friendly and efficient. This would not be my idea of a destination park as it has no type of entertainment, but it is a very good place to stay when visiting any of the local attractions. The people living here appear to be very friendly and welcoming. It must be popular because the office lady told me they had no long term sites available until April or May of 2017. I will be back. - Lynn Wagoner

Rate reflects monthly rate. Stayed here from December to April.
Park is an older park with somewhat narrow asphalt roads and some sites can be a challenge to back into with a larger vehicle. Park is right on US 281 and getting out can be a challenge sometimes. Verizon air card worked fairly well and had 2 to 3 bars on my Verizon phone. Most sites have asphalt pads. Sites in the back of the park are gravel and under trees. Dog park is a hike down a rocky road that is somewhat washed out. You can get to the dog park going across some grass though. They have a guest house for visitors if you need it. Laundry rooms were clean but small. 4 washers and 5 driers in the one I used.
Owner is real friendly, along with the staff. Each site has a cement patio and a picnic table. Lots of permanent park models and long term campers. I would stay here again. - Paul_L63

This is a 95 percent full time trailer park. There are paved road thru park, sites are gravel/dirt. The park is Expensive for what you get. $45.00 night, $245.00 week. The amenities advertised are not all working, you are lucky to be in a spot where Wifi and Cable are usable. $20.00 deposit cable box needed. I have used these boxes many times before and after trying two boxes the front office threw up its hands and says "we only provide cable because Time Warner gives it to us free, it's not ours you will have to call them." Many of the spots for short term , including mine, are next to road (noise) or against the UP railroad and a stone quarry (bad dust). I didn't use restrooms, can't rate. Front office is useless, backed by General Mgr who has been on job too long and doesn't care about individual customers issues. Location is asset, located close to I-35. If you have never heard of a non-refundable deposit, get ready. Laundry at park, ok but old machines, one of ours leaked. - Dieselrv08

Facility filled with old park models. Extremely unlevel, gravel sites. Narrow streets filled with speed bumps and pot holes; very, very difficult to maneuver a big rig through. Satellite reception difficult or impossible due to trees. We lost power sporadically, especially during storms. Park poorly maintained. NOTE: The trees at our site prevented satellite reception, so we tried working with the management to move and were told nothing available and to keep trying. We tried for over a week and were told to check after the first of the month when the monthlies vacated their spots. When two sites came open that would work for us, we asked to move but were told they could not move us due to the way their "reservation system" worked. They had no intention of letting us move when they told us to keep checking back. When I called the office and spoke with the general manager, I was told "that's the way it is and next time you can go to another park," and HUNG UP on me! We have have traveled extensively and have NEVER encountered a park like this one! - CWinLV

I stayed here for 6 months while on a work contract. The staff and maintenance people were friendly and so were the neighbors. Lots are larger than most places that I have been. Not packed in like sardines! Utilities were excellent and trash pick up is daily at your site. Fenced dog park with dog droppings bags supplied at all three dog parks. The price was $500.00 monthly which breaks down to $16.60/day for a monthly RV rate. Nothing extra is charged. - MedicineMan

Very nice park. Sites have concrete, covered patio with picnic table (minor issue - our awning hit the patio roof, so we couldn't fully open it). Hot tub was actually hot (most parks seem to have warm tubs). Huge rec room, although there were no planned activities while we were there (2 weeks). Fairly large pull-through sites. The sites were somewhat slanted to the left, but this was easily overcome with levelers and meant that the tanks drained easily (sewer hole was lower than hookups). Fresh water spigot was 20 ft from sewer, which was nice for cleanliness, but we needed to use a long hose. Only negative - the trains are frequent and noisy (they blow their horns because the local train crossing only have markers, not crossing gates). - Neil_and_Sandy

Stayed here for the month of February. Large park but everyone is super friendly. Spots are a decent size but gravel and not very even. Many activities offered, i.e., Pot lucks, Super Bowl party, painting classes, ice-cream night and bingo. Very dog friendly with two dog runs and agility courses. The hot tub is hot, deep and clean. Pool is not heated and freezing. Wonderful laundry facilities with 10 washers and dryers.
You definitely need a car to get around for shopping and restaurants. We received several deliveries without any issues. My only knock is that while most staff were very friendly, the one woman who manages the front office could learn to smile once in a while. - Outlaw Pilots

We had made reservations, however when we arrived someone was in the site they told us to take. They were quite helpful at the office and told us to take another site, however it was beyond a tight pull through (been full timing for 6 years, so know a tight turn). The turn could not be made because of trees and some type of patio, however they were more than willing to come and trim the trees so we did get into the site. Once we were in we realized all sites on this road tipped a lot on the downhill side so we had to use extra blocking on the tires to be reasonably level. - Al and Anne-Marie

Under no circumstance stay here. Planes directly overhead, trains nearby, and emergency sirens all night long. Tight getting in and out. Short sites. Utilities in bad places under rig. - 11 Bounder

After reading reviews of this RV Park we decided to stay here and made a reservation for 3 nights. After arriving we soon learned that the website made this park appear nicer that what it really turned out to be. The management was very friendly and helpfull, but they seem to be lacking when it comes to enforcing the rules on those that are permanent residents. The area around the spaces of the permanent residents was messy and many of the rigs were in disrepair. We had are two young children with us and arrived around 6PM and by the time we were finished setting up around 7PM the kids wanted to play. Although this is described as a family park we felt as though the atmosphere dictated that at this early hour it was quiet time and the kids should be kept inside. Additionally, the park was small and difficult to manuever around. With or without children there are much better choices in the area. - Lawman5383

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
