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

Went up to Spring Branch RV Park for the weekend, just to get away for a while and spend some time at Canyon Lake. The park owners were very nice and keep the park neat and clean. They had a nice pull through slot big enough for our 40 foot rig and a 22 foot boat. I liked the white rock gravel pads, water and rain soaks right in and the boat trailer didn't roll around like it does on a slab. No need to block the wheels. 50 amp service, sewer and water centered for easy access. No cable TV (local cable company encrypts signal and requires a box) but received about 12 channels on digital antenna. About 15 minutes from lake access, and a short drive to nearby restaurants. Enjoyed the stay and extended by a day to get in some good fishing and relaxing. - OpenRoaders

This is our second stay; one month in 2015 and now two months 2016-17. The family that owns this park wants you to have the best stay ever. The bathrooms are what you'd expect in a 5-star hotel. Laundry machines are new front loaders. Newly fenced in dog park is huge and they now have propane on site and will deliver the tanks back to you. Excellent all around. - Liz-n-Gary

Hosts/managers/owners were very friendly, helpful and gracious. They went out of their way to get me settled and to make sure everything was okay. All the facilities which I used which included the restrooms, showers and laundry were spotlessly clean. I would recommend this park without any reservations. As an added plus the park had a great get-together for Halloween and organized trick-or-treat fun for who ever wanted to participate. The whole park is kept clean and the residents where all friendly and helpful. The only downside (for some people) is no cable but we all need a little down time away from the boob-tube anyway to get out and enjoy the great weather and to visit with other campers; so it wasn't missed at all. - Michael Neely

This is a beautiful park about 25 miles from San Antonio....we love the state park setting, its quiet and your site is mostly secluded from the others....we had full hookups but not all the sites are....most of the sites will handle a big rig, there are 3 different camping areas here but the turkey sinks campground is the only one that can handle big rigs...our site was level and all hookups worked great...we picked up alot of local channels with antenna and our ATT cell service worked great and used our hotspot for wifi...restrooms were clean and plenty of hot water....the only reason I did not give it a 10 rating is because they charge you 7$ a person per day entrance fee even if you are camping, so although we paid 24$ a night the total cost per day was 38$....of course this is if your out of state and don't have a Texas park pass....but it was worth it because the park is beautiful.... - smoky40

This is a quiet wooded park with Guadalupe River access. The sites vary in length and we had to try a second site in order to fit comfortably. Our experience in Texas State Parks has always been very positive. The rangers are very knowledgeable and the facilities are always clean. - FJKenny

Quite tight. Older park. In general, designed mainly for RVs 30' and under. Narrow sites and only a few sites suitable for RVs 35-40' wth slide-outs and awnings. Lots of overhanging trees, especially at site entrances, making it difficult to back in. No pull-through sites. It is nice and quiet and the river is beautiful, although not visible from the camp sites. - Will B.

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

We reserved an RV site for 2 nites at $45/nite and a tent site at $10/nite. When we were in the area we drove thru the park just to plan when we brought the trailer. The place was a dump, trash and broke down units throughout the park. I wouldn't bathe my dogs in the bathhouse, and there is no river access as depicted on their site. I called to cancel our reservation 2 weeks prior to our date and expected a $20 cancel fee but was charged $40, she said it was 2 sites 2 cancellation fees. The tent site was only $10 to begin with. Guess they have to make money somehow. There are many other nice parks in this area, don't waste your $ on this one.
She was rude when asked about it and invited me to share our experience, so I am. - PBright

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

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

Site was very unlevel and had to use 4" blocks to get level within acceptable range and rig was not perfectly level. Front to back was great. We stayed here because it was convenient to San Antonio, New Braunfels and San Marcos. Water required 2 hoses as did sewer. Sewer connection was at small concrete pad and such that although I could add my threaded adapter the hose barely connected. Layout such as this makes it very easy to cause connection to leak. Park is mostly with full time trailers who had lots of stuff outside. Didn't bother me but other things did. Rate of $39.00/night is high for what you receive. We stayed 7 nights at the $275.00 weekly rate. Monthly power is a whopping $450. No discounts. Although there was signs for Good Sam and Passport America they no longer participate. Wifi had lots of signals but dropped off line quite often. Enough to cause one to be frustrated. Permanent residents told me that has been the case forever. Management was unconcerned about Wifi but with many permanent residents and over 240 sites they have no incentive to improve. Cable is advertised but it is Direct TV and only 17 channels available. If you stay here entrance has a speed bump that IS NOT painted for identification although there is a small yellow post and sign on the right when entering. Additional unmarked speed bumps throughout park. Sites were extremely wide and parking room is good. I will not stay here again. - Tigggerdad

Our stay was not by choice. We were stranded in San Antonio due to an axle failure on our travel trailer that took two weeks to get the parts. We paid a week at a time by check. The second check paid for an entire week, but the parts arrived on the fourth day. To get a refund for the three days we did not need we had to prove that our check had cleared at their bank. Once that was proven, they refunded our unused three days with a check! We immediately went to their bank and cashed it. They don't trust us even when I showed them our account had an enormous balance. We see one of the reviews that mentioned how one of the office managers needs to learn how to smile once in a while. We noticed that during the time we camped there. Maybe she is a very shy person, but it is something that we observed every time we went to the office. To us it was funny to see how she avoids smiling. - Blanchou

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

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
