We had a wonderful stay at the Alamo River RV park. The staff was very friendly, very competent and willing to go above and beyond whatever needed to be done to make our stay absolutely wonderful. since we were new to Texas and this particular area, they were very helpful giving us directions helping us find things that we wanted to see. Again A1 service. We have a 39 ft motorhome and we were towing a car. Easy in and easy out. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My family and I camped here three nights in a 33' travel trailer. The campground is set up nicely with large sites. It is conveniently located. Far enough from San Antonio to give you a camping feel but close enough for food deliveries to your site. It is a short trip into the city. The sites are gravel but level. The bathroom/showers were keep clean. All the utilities work great. The Wi-Fi was strong and gave us no problems. The campground does not have a cable hookup but we did get several over the air local channels. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I would rate the campground higher but as previous reviews state, over half the park sites are taken by permanent residents. Still, I would recommend this campground if you are planning a trip to San Antonio or just passing through. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Grading this campground is hard. It has so many nice things but the bad overrides a lot of it. Pro: nice large sites, lots of wildlife on the hiking trails through the woods, Close to lots of activities, a office staff that it tops and very polite, and a security gate for after hours. Cons: No pool, many full time residence some of which even installed swing sets on there lot for the kids, train every night blowing its horns, due to drought the river is almost non existent, many residence work so lots of noise and traffic in morning as everyone leaves for work. Hard for me to say if I will stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week to attend our son's graduation from boot camp at nearby Lackland AFB. The park is about the closest you can get to the base and very convenient. The grounds are well kept. There are a lot of longer-term guests, but they keep their sites looking very neat. There are lots of areas to explore and the gated entry was an additional plus. The owner stopped by and chatted for a bit, letting us know that they'd be glad to pick up, fill and return an LP tank if we needed it. If we're in the San Antonio area again, we'll definitely stay here. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We lucked out with this one. The amenities are clean and in good working order. The area at the front is nothing special but once you get to the back of the park, down by the river, it is just great. Very clean grounds, lots of birds and even a few deer. Staff were all very friendly, we even got a guided tour. We will stay again next time we are in the area.

This is hands down, the best RV Park we've stayed at in San Antonio! Great natural landscaping with big trees, and the Medina River runs thru the property. They have a brand new bath/shower house and laundry facility. Everyone is extremely friendly, and it is so quiet!! Big lots, reasonably priced. They also have a great dog park, and this Resort is very pet friendly. We've tried a number of different RV parks in San Antonio, and this is our favorite place!!!

Me and my husband have stayed in two other RV Parks in the San Antonio area, and this one feels the most like home! It's absolutely gorgeous, And everything is new and kept up!! We also feel secure being that it is a gated community. There's never any random people driving thru, and all of our neighbors are friendly, respectful and quite. We pay $385 a month plus electricity. Oh, and the internet is included, fast and without a glitch! There is tons of wildlife out here, which we love! And when you go down below (the resort is on 100 acres), you submerge into a natural park which competes with any State park in Texas! Big giant trees, grass meadows and the Medina River?! You'd never think you were only 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio!! The staff is exceptionally kind, caring and professional. We love the fact that this is a family owned and operated resort, and highly recommend Alamo River to anyone!! We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park does not live up to the park's advertisement . It is not a resort, just a big field. The monthly rate is about two hundred a month too high. I would not recommend this park for anyone unless you have no other place to stay due to the cost. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this park a few years ago and left a favorable review. Unfortunately there are new managers now and things have gone south in a hurry. I sure wish things would go back to the way they were. The skinny female manager that works the office was consistently rude to my wife and me. She acts like she doesn't have time to mess with anyone and is better than everyone else. The restrooms, while new and nice enough, are dirty. Heck! Everything in this park is dirty now. The site we stayed in is unlevel, and our dog was constantly trying to eat the horse feces that are strewn around the park now that this is more of a horse riding park than an RV park. Other favorable reviews are obviously being made by employees of the park. We would like to love this park, as we used to, but unless the current managerial situation and cleanliness issues are rectified, we will definitely NOT be returning. There are much nicer parks in the area at better prices. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here in October and we loved it! The staff and our neighbors were warm and welcoming. They had a bath house which I used numerous times and it was always clean and well stocked. My husband really enjoyed that he could go fishing down below, as the Medina River runs right through the property. I loved that the park was gated for added security. They also had a laundry facility onsite with new washers and dryers, which was a huge convenience. We love San Antonio, which is just straight shot up the highway. We will be staying here again when we make our way down to Texas! We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with the previous review. But, now they do rent horses. We did an hour ride today with a guide and saw some beautiful landscapes on two of the most gentle horses I have ever seen. The owners have over 100 acres of woods along the river and the ride was mostly in wooded areas. The restrooms and laundry were clean and modern. I baked brownies in the clubhouse and had a great time talking to fellow anglers. Friendly, helpful staff and a great laundry made this stay worth the stop. We would stay here again.

We found this campground on the internet while passing through and we are sure glad we did. This campground is not just what you see when you first arrive. While the sites are new as is the bathroom / laundry building. The real gem is what they have on the back part of the ranch down by the river! We had no idea what was there until we were given a very informative tour by two of the staff. The river area must be seen to be believed. There is wildlife everywhere and it is very quiet. The area is shaded and it is a very big place. There is a herd of deer that live on the property. We understand that horse riding is very popular on the ranch but they do not rent horses. (We spent 2 evenings just sitting by the river listening to the birds and the running river -- very peaceful and simply beautiful. The sites below are for tent camping and day use although they do have water at each site and a pop-up or an RV would certainly fit but you would be boon docking. The sites above are where we stayed and are new -- graveled and level. Everything worked fine including the new Wi-Fi System that was just completed. It was the first park in a long time we stayed at that Netflix worked like a charm. There is a store / clubhouse that is very nice. They have grocery items and they are also an RV parts dealer. They have a very large movie library that you can borrow from -- and I mean large! One of the things we were very impressed with was the staff. I am not sure we have been more welcomed at an RV Park. It was funny when we pulled in one of the staff members came out to our motor home and said "We have been waiting on you -- we just made some fresh coffee -- come on in!" Just like coming home! There is a lot of history to this Ranch and the stories that were shared with us were very interesting. We met the owners and they were a joy to be around! We found it very interesting to be so close to San Antonio but still out in the country. They have a winning combination here and we will most certainly be back. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.
