Price reflects a 10% AAA membership discount. This is an older, wooded park located in the outskirts of San Antonio with lots of restaurants and shopping close by. The owners appear to be fairly laid back. The office was closed when we arrived. The sign said to find a site and they’d catch up to us later. We did and the next day around 10am, someone stopped by with a registration form and asked us to drop it off at the office before 5pm. The sites are gravel and grass, fairly level, and big. The restrooms, showers, and laundry are all older buildings, but very roomy and clean. It appeared that the majority of residents were long-term, but their sites were relatively clean, and the park had a quiet atmosphere even during the evening. The Mexican restaurant that another reviewer mentioned was closed the five nights we were there. There was a “Restaurant For Lease” sign at the front of the park. The only difficulty we had was with the wi-fi. We didn’t purchase the park’s wi-fi since we have a Sprint Hot Spot. But, our hot spot worked horribly the entire time we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

Price reflects KOA discount. This wooded campground is right next to the highway with means a lot of noise. With our windows and door open to catch the breeze, my husband and I had trouble hearing each other talk. With the windows and door closed, the noise was manageable. I didn’t care for the manager at all. She acted unhappy that we didn’t purchase the cable for $3. Then when I asked for the code for the wi-fi, the manager told me that I wouldn’t be able to connect to the internet. My request for a small discount was denied because, according to the manager, technically, I could still connect to their wi-fi. Their wi-fi just couldn’t connect to the internet. She repeated this about three times, louder each time. This is also the only KOA I’ve ever stayed at that didn’t escort us to our site. The sites were level and long enough for our 35” motor home and toad. The dog walk was a rock-filled area parallel to the main road. I found one of the park rules very strange. It stated, “KOA armbands required at all times”. No one mentioned armbands when we checked in. Since we were only staying overnight, we just ignored it. We didn’t see anyone else wearing armbands either. This is one of the few campgrounds that we would not stay at again.

Price reflects KOA discount. The owners were friendly. The pizza and chicken wings from the campground office were delicious. The wi-fi was excellent. The sand and gravel sites were sloped, but not enough that our jacks couldn’t level us out. Plus they were long enough for our 35” motor home plus toad. The restrooms and showers are somewhat older, but fairly clean. There was no traffic noise even though we were right off of I-10. Unfortunately the gate on the dog park was broken so my Shih Tzu had to stay on his leash. Also the washer held extremely small loads, but still cost $1.75. Plus half of the lights were out in the laundry room making it difficult to see. We stayed here overnight and would do so again when passing through.

We stayed here two days while visiting family. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. The site was a concrete slab extended to one side to include a picnic table. It was level, wide, and long enough for both our motor home and jeep. Because the hookups were at the back of our site, we did have to unhook our toad by the office and park it in front of our motor home. The restrooms, showers, and laundry room were large and clean. We didn’t take advantage of it, but the heated swimming pool looked beautiful. The landscaping was gorgeous. It’s a little pricey, but we would stay here again.

We stayed four days visiting with family. The first three days we received the Passport America discount, but the fourth day we paid full price (the price reflected above). The owners were helpful and friendly. The grass and gravel site was level and roomy. Hookups were fine. Wi-Fi was the fastest in all the parks we’ve stayed in. The bathrooms and showers were large and clean and needed a code to enter. The laundry room was clean with eight washer and dryers. The only problem was some traffic noise. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would return the next time we’re in the area.

We stayed overnight and found the grounds to be immaculate and orderly with beautiful landscaping separating each site giving a little bit of privacy. The lots were concrete, level, long enough for our motorhome and toad, but thin. The bathrooms and showers were enormous and clean with marble counter tops and tile floor. The laundry room was large and clean as well. The pool was gorgeous. And my Shih Tzu loved the pet playground where he ran and played off his leash. We would have rated this park higher except for the unfriendly staff. We arrived a few minutes before the office closed. A staff member shoved my information into my hands before closing up. She didn't mention a code for the restroom. I found out later that I needed one and had to ask another camper. Despite the staff, we would go back.

Pricing reflects KOA discount. We only stayed here overnight and didn’t get to check out all of the cool stuff this campground has to offer. They had hayrides in full swing when we arrived around 8pm, but the owners took the time to show us to our site. The site was large, level, and long enough for our motorhome plus toad. Our site also had a stone patio with a fire ring, patio table and chairs as well as bench. The patio was perfect for unwinding after a long day on the road. The restrooms and showers were large and clean and required a code to enter. By Quiet Time the hayrides were over, and a staff member was patrolling in a golf cart. We would definitely go back when we had more time to enjoy ourselves.

Pricing reflects KOA discount. We spent a little over a week at this campground while visiting family. We booked our reservation the day before we were due to arrive. The campground was full one of the nights we wanted to stay, but the staff went out of their way to find a place for us. The sites were roomy, fairly level, and long enough for our motorhome plus toad. Our Shih Tzu loved the pet playground where he ran and played off his leash. The laundry room, bathrooms and showers were decent sized and clean as well. The roads to get to the park were somewhat tricky to maneuver, but we took our time and made it without incident. We ended up using our own Wi-Fi instead of the park’s which was for email only. No facebook, MySpace or downloading/uploading allowed on their limited bandwidth. Also the office, bathrooms, showers, laundry, and dumpster are all down a steep hill from the sites. We would definitely go back.

Pricing includes KOA member discounts and point redemption. We stayed here overnight. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Even though it was pouring down rain, they led us to our site. When I asked for the laundry room hours, they told me to call when I was ready. They drove me from our site to the laundry room in their golf cart. Told me not to worry when it wasn’t going to be until after hours before our clothes were dry. Then, even though they were officially closed, drove me back to my site when I was finished. The laundry and rec areas are part of the main office/store and are roomy and clean. They have daily garbage pickup at each site. Also the sites were large, level, and the power was good. We would definitely stay here again.

The staff at this KOA RV park was extremely friendly and helpful. When we told them we were having generator problems, they recommended a mechanic who was able to look at it the very next morning. The sites were wooded, roomy, and long enough for our RV and toad. The power was good. There was a shallow creek running along the lower end of the park as well as a nice looking kids’ playground. The restrooms and showers were large and clean. The only negative were the trains. They were close enough to vibrate our RV scaring our Shih Tzu throughout our stay. Also, the train horn at 3am didn’t thrill us. We would definitely stay here again, but would ask for a site away from the railroad tracks.

We spent two nights at Sandy Lake RV Park. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a well-equipped exercise room and a large common room. The streets as well as the sites are narrow. The majority of the sites seemed to be filled with mobile homes and RVs which looked as if they hadn’t moved for some time. There was inadequate power at the site. The showers were cramped and dirty. And the advertised modest dog run was actually an unfenced drainage ditch next to a busy road which couldn’t even be used because it had rained. We won’t be going back.

The sites were large and level, each with a grill and picnic table set on a concrete pad. The hookups were convenient and the electric power was good (we require 50 amps for our motor home). The owner doesn’t appear to live onsite, but was readily available and helpful by phone. Note: This park accepts cash or check only deposited into a slot by the laundry room door. The restrooms, showers, and laundry were rustic and not climate controlled. There is a highway overpass close by, but the noise faded into the background quickly. We had originally planned on staying two nights, but enjoyed the relaxing, peaceful setting enough to stay a third. We would definitely go back.
