Our first visit at Alamo River RV with our new RV and I was pleased with all the amenities. The staff was extremely friendly and there was even a small store in case we forgot something. The dog park was perfect for our Aussie. We stayed in the lot close to the entrance, decent gravel lot with a large grassy area and picnic table. We walked past the cows and donkeys down to the Medina River. Absolutely gorgeous down in the tent camping area. The train horn seemed to blow every hour Friday evening but rarely blew Saturday. Nice little RV park, I would definitely recommend, especially for families visiting their graduating airmen from boot camp at Lackland AFB. - Fulsom Family

This place is gorgeous. Right at the Alamo River. Charlie and Roxie are as nice as people can be and they are very kind to military and veterans. It's quiet and beautiful with lots of places to wander. I highly recommend the Alamo River RV Resort. - Zoni Jay

This friendly family run campground is located in a nicely rural setting about 17 miles SW from the tourist epicenter of San Antonio, including the historical Alamo, San Jose Missions National Park, and the charming downtown San Antonio River Walk with its old churches (visit the San Fernando cathedral). The 97 acre Alamo River RV Ranch only includes "Alamo" in its name as a widespread SA area marketing tool; the river that flows along it is actually the Medina River (there is no such thing as the "Alamo River," though there is in fact a "Woman Hollering Creek" in the region!). As others have mentioned, the upper part of the RV Ranch is developed as a standard private RV campground, with many pull-through, full-service gravel sites with a picnic table and small grassy area. Semi-permanent residents appear to be parked around the perimeter area, some evidently working in nearby oil fields and mostly in trailers, but they mostly keep to themselves. The first night we arrived a bit after the gate closed, but were able to get quickly ushered in to our site. For most of the week it was quiet, though the Thanksgiving weekend got busy and we ended up with a big family including a trailer and tent adjacent to us. What truly distinguishes this park is the spectacular lower area next to the Medina River, reached by passing by the horse and cattle acreage. Down there are water-only sites reachable by dirt roads, but was primarily enjoyable to us as a marvelous example of quiet, unspoiled South Texas parkland with many deer and birds (look for the white doe). While we typically gravitate to state and county parks, this had some of the feel with a strong WiFi to boot. There is evidence of pride in the maintenance of the restrooms / showers / laundry and congenial staff with engaging stories to tell. - dns718

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 stayed at the Country Breeze for a month. It was spacious and had partial cement pads. There were spaces with shade, but were occupied with long term campers. All though the park has new managers, the park was in need of a lot of electrical work. While we stayed there, we had many times where the main breaker on the pole got flipped. It was very windy with no protection and the water seemed to shut off or slow to a trickle at night. Which was not very convenient after a hot day when a shower was wanted. A cemetery was close to some of the sights, and it frequently had many visitors all hours of the night. We heard many of the campers complain about the electric and water. The air also smelled of oil and left an oily residue on everything. We would not stay again. - rvcamper4aces

This is the same campground that used to be known as "Fort Retire," now under new ownership and management. We have stayed here four times over the last several years. We use it as a base to visit and take care of business in San Antonio. We like it because it is quiet -- no road noise -- and fairly dark. The campground is largely long-term residents, but that is certainly not a problem. The owners live on site and manage the campground. The are extremely helpful and accommodating, remembering you from one visit to the next. The campground is fairly simple with few frills, which is not an issue for use since we do not use clubhouses, etc. It gets the job done very well. It is clean and well kept and, as already noted, quiet. The new owners have added lights which we would prefer not to have as we like the darkness, but that is not a big issue. Most of the shady sites are taken by long-term residents but the sites are nice and big and level with good services. It is a ways into San Antonio, but is easy to do and on fast freeways. We checked out several of the parks in and around San Antonio and clearly prefer this one. - TheJim

This is an older park but with a lot of work going on. The current owners have been here about 1-1/2 years and are working hard to update. The sites are tight but adequate and clean. The park was quiet except for a few early morning folks headed to work. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The park is convenient to San Antonio but a little out of the way. We had a nice shaded spot. We will stay here again. The price was based on a weekly rate. - mfcros

We had electric and water hookups that worked fine, as did the dump station when we left. The main reason for my rating was the poor, or lack of, service. The office was closed too often and the staff did not return phone messages. It was like musical chairs in the campground. Every day, this trailer moved from here to there and that one went from there to here. People stayed well past check out and with no staff overseeing operations it was easy for people to come and go without supervision. In addition, the Wifi was a hit or miss affair. It would suddenly drop the signal then not be available to reconnect. There was no cable tv. - Melodycthomas

Space is available on a first come first serve basis. If there is a spot when you arrive, claim it and then pay at the office. Small campground with about 30 spaces, but clean and well kept. Good electric and good water pressure. - CWinLV
Nov 2012 - $22.00
Stayed here for a month. Park is military but civilians can stay with a military sponsor. Rate is slightly higher. You have to leave the base for one day every 30 days. The rate includes full hookups no charge for electric and the laundry is free. Nice park most sites have shade except for the partial hookup sites.These are pull throughs with a paved surface. The full hookup sites have concrete and pavement. Nice place to stay. - Buddman

For the most part a self service park. Never saw any management. Office was always locked. Grass is well maintained but utilities, roads, etc are in need of upgrading. Roads are terrible all over the AFB. Water connections leak, cable boxes broken, laying on the ground. Spaces are generous, but be careful of low limbs. Bring your own Mi-Fi. Park's Wi-Fi is all but unusable. Price reflects $440/month. We would stay again. - Deck & Margot

This RV park should not be open. There is no Wi-Fi or cable. The sites are not level and the roads are full of pot holes. The only thing going for it is the price. $355.00 per month keeps it pretty well full of workers. - possumtrotky
Jan 2013 - $12.00
This RV park is in very bad shape and should not be open. The roads have deep pot holes everywhere. The sites are narrow and utilities are on the wrong side for hooking up. My rate is based on a monthly stay of $355 per month. The lady that works nights is very friendly. There are no rules in this park, but it is quiet, and all dogs are on a leash. - possumtrotky

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

Very nice, clean campground with level sites. Office employees were helpful; quick check-in; and provided info about the area. The area around the campground may look kind of iffy, it was safe. Alamo Tours picked us up at the campground for a day tour. The next day we took a bus into town, which is not far, but too far to walk. Bus stop is across the street from the campground. - LPierce

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
May 2013 - $20.00
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

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

Nice, busy RV park. I spent 4 days here while being treated at the nearby VA hospital. Friendly staff. I would stay again. - Dave and Linda
Mar 2016 - $45.00
Rate reflects nightly stay. Some sites are more expensive. My rate was 590/month. Check the site for rates. I was here from June/2015 to March 2016.
Check-in was easy. Staff nice and helpful. Escort to your spot to help you get properly parked.
No cable but over 50 channels available on antenna. WiFi provided by TengoNet, not controlled by the park. Please don't blame the park for bad internet...not their fault
There are some rules...but not that bad. But don't be mad if you violate one and get called out...rules are for a reason. Especially pay attention to pet rules, parking on open spots, and going the wrong way on the one-way streets.
There are 2 dog runs. Both are supplied with doggie waste bins and poop scoopers. Use them. Yes, the runs are cleaned each day, but that doesn't take away your responsibility to clean up your dog's poop.
Sites are concrete pads. Roads through the park are paved and are of adequate width. This park has 3 long spots for very large rigs, such as class A's pulling large trailers.
Restrooms and showers are cleaned daily. But bear in mind, people use them throughout the day. If you stay here and use them, and one needs attention, notify the staff.
My stay here was great. I would not hesitate to come back here again. - Traveling Man 49

We stay in San Antonio quite a bit. Our kids go to UTSA. We've never stayed here before because it's not as close to downtown as Traveler's World. To start off with this park is extremely well maintained. No junk anywhere and there looks to be some full-timers with all kinds of set ups and everything is tidy. I'm extremely picky where we stay. No longstanding mobile home parks, etc.
Navigating the park is easy. The sites are a little narrow for my taste, but if all you're gonna do is stay inside or go to the city it's no problem. We chose a "Premium-Plus" site with an extra parking place for our kids to come visit. Our site had a picnic table as well.
No cable TV and not a lot of channels to be picked up. Looks as if they had cable at one point but not anymore. Not much shade throughout the middle of the park. Some trees at the end of the lanes. - mikel

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
