Decent place. Quiet. Facilities are well maintained. Lawns could use better care. Large sites. Only stayed one night so my review is limited. I found it to be an ok place.
This FamCamp is going down hill from 2 years ago. One person for grounds maintenance (lawn care). Manager didn't show any concern about campsites getting mowed, she was more worried about the wooded part being mowed by the entrance. Had to pull the grass around the hook ups, grass was taller than our sewer hose stand. They should invest in fixing the broke down mower sitting in the back that the grass is growing over and have one or both the camp host help with mowing. We were assigned a flooded space and had to pretty much beg to be moved away from the mosquito nest. Camp host was more concerned about building steps and a dog kennel for his campsite than helping. Office staff stops helping at the very second the office hours say closed. Laundry facilities were dirty and not maintained. The washing machine doors are sprung and they smelled like mildew. Spider webs are taking over the women's bathroom and laundry room, along with the broom and dust pan that has sat in the corner unused for a very long time. Tornado was spotted and base police was riding through the camp ground with lights on, but was never told where to take shelter. Went to the fire station, soaked, cold and aggravated. Train noise wasn't an issue. Can get mail on base by purchasing a post office box at the base post office.

This is our 5th stay as we find it very close to our family and friends. This time we previewed the other facilities at Lackland and Canyon Lake and found this park more to our expectations and liking. Sites are long and wide and pull in. Campground is well maintained, laundry facilities very efficient and clean. Even though it rained most of the time, this did not spoil our stay. We had tornado warning one night and were alerted to go to one of the bathhouses for shelter. As for the train noise, don't find this an issue. One of the previous comments about the potholes.. well, this is an issue in San Antonio and on IH35. We lost a hubcap somewhere in the city. Mail no longer received on base and believe the nearest PO is on Perrin Beitel. All in all this is one of our favorite campgrounds. Oh yes, In and Out just opened on Walzem and IH35. This is one of the most efficiently run and good places for hamburgers. If you haven't tried one, do so. Amy and John Stanton
One of our favorite camps. Very well run. Clean. Spacious sites. They now have a few hot spots in the office building. You can sit on the patio and use the internet even when the office is closed. Great plus! Keep up the good work.
I'll give the good, bad, and ugly. The good is this RV park is beautiful, very nice large sites, flat cement, very clean, well maintained! Staff is very friendly and helpful. The bad is 5 ft from the RV park is a train track that is VERY active, in fact the most active train track I have ever seen in the US! A train goes by at least every 5 to 10 minutes especially at night, and the conductors LOVE to pull and hold that train horn for long periods of time, it's incredibly annoying!! I will certainly never return because of these trains!! The ugly, the rest of the base! This base has nothing to offer besides commisary and exchange, the roads on base are TERRIBLE!! They make no effort to repair the roads and are not safe for cars. Many buildings are closed and old, like the bowling building was closed due to falling ceiling and various safety hazards! This base has had on going construction on roads for the last 10 years! When you enter the base your surrounded by a golf course. They conveniently built a road through a golf coarse so there's guys teeing off balls around you as you drive around the base. It's ridiculous! Be cautious.

As noted in the Fort Sam Houston fact sheet, this no General Delivery or personal mail service for the RV Park. UPS and FEDEX service is available. The address on the fact sheet is incorrect. the correct address is: Recreational Vehicle Park, Your Name, Your Site Number, Bldg. 3514, Petroleum Drive, Fort Sam Houston, Texas 78234. As usual, Baker will do all to assist you and make your stay enjoyable.

The office staff is very helpful with any questions you may have. Nice large open sites with grills. Laundry room is small and could be cleaner. The big issue is the train noise at night. Some nights five or more trains come through. The engineers like to blow their horns as they come through!!!

We did a RON on the 7th of January. Baker as usual was great and helpful, we did a first and filled up propane at the park before we pulled chocks Thursday morning, wonderful. The reason to leave a review is the on going CONSTRUCTION on base. CALL BEFORE you ARRIVE to see which way to enter the base. !!!!!!! Baker told us in the next month or so that the road (nursery) leading in near the cemetery will be torn up and closed for a period of time that it takes to resurface. No word on if the petroleum gate will be opened to allow rv,s and others to access that part of the base, as coming in from the other parts of the base will be nearly impossible with a rig over 30 feet TOTAL, roads are narrow and signage is horrible. In fact my wife had a police escort from the commissary back to the park because the construction has everything closed or blocked, she finally found a security person and asked how to get back, so it was very helpful they escorted her through the maze. Out on I-35 if your coming in from the north, rittiman road is better now. If you come in from the south on 35....SLOW DOWN the construction is horrible on the patch before and the parts you have to exit on at rittiman and the lights are LONG and badly timed. Stay in the second lane from the left to turn as the turn is tight because of the road work.

We pulled in late on Veterans day...and had an equipment failure. The next morning I went up and asked if we could stay an extra night to effect repairs. Typical of this park and staff, I was immediately met with a warm and sincere OF COURSE and don't worry if you need to stay longer we can adjust arrivals. This park is a gem in our book. Each time we stay there it is always a pleasure.

A.F. left this review using the Directory software: - The staff is very helpful and friendly. The sites are large and neat although all sites do not have trees for shade. The base is a wreck! Construction everywhere!

Great site with a number of spaces that have nice shade trees. Very clean and well maintained. It is a bit disappointing that they don't have WiFi. I found it a bit difficult to move/drive about the base due to many road closures. It is a park that I would return to when in the area.

I stayed here while I was in class... huge sites and the office folks are OK most of the time; the camp host is a little grumpy but he is only in the office on the weekends. Overall I was happy with my stay and I would stay here again.

We enjoyed our 2 week visit here. It's a very nice and clean RV park. Like a previous reviewer, I hate to criticize the park. But there are some things to point out. They need to join the real world and put in cable and WiFi. They have dial up internet at the clubhouse but if you are using that you're out of luck after 1600 when the clubhouse is locked up for the night. Also, be aware that the roads between the campground and the gate near the National Cemetery are closed for runners between 1730 and 1830. I thought that kind of strange. Several days before we left, an old (about 15 feet long) travel trailer showed in one of the sites. A 12 foot by 12 foot canopy was erected behind it and filled with whatever they could get under it. There was everything including several ice chests, clothes baskets, duffel bags, etc. It was filled to the top and looked very junky. At least they weren't next door. Regardless, we enjoyed our visit and would come back again.

We love this park. It's in a perfect location and fairly close to just about everything. We travel with our own Wifi and satellite for TV so not a problem for us. Hosts are fantastic. The train does go through rather close to the Famcamp but that doesn't bother us. It's a great place to spend some time. The sites are huge and at $120 a week it's quite a deal. We stayed for two weeks and felt that wasn't long enough. This is one of our favorite places to stay!

Arrived without a reservation and could only get 1 night. The check-in lady gave me a weird look when I stated I didn't have a reservation. Campground is nice and reasonably priced for this area. This is a convenient and secure location to stay while visiting the San Antonio area. This is the first time we have been here since the new bridge was put in. Nice job. Directions to the campground posted here were perfect. However, this was not a good location to spend the night for a peaceful rest. Trains coming next to the campground with blaring horns every 90 minutes all night prevented a good night's sleep. I'll think twice about coming here again. Made a video tour of the campground and have posted it on this website.

It seems almost a sin to say anything negative about Ft Sam. I guess after a few visits over the yrs and many other US Mil RV parks I'm becoming more critical. Not unfairly I hope. FT.Sam (or Joint Base SA) is still a nice park w/ large, level sites. Bathhouses are usually cleaned and fully operational. Bath-house heat is out right now. (it would be during this record cold spell huh?) But as I look at Ft. Sam's daily rate in comparison; still no Wi-Fi, still no cable; it seems high. No real complaints-nice folks, nice Post facilities, nice park. I'm just not blown away with it like in yrs past.

We always stay here for a week or two in the fall on our way to the Rio Grande Valley to spend the winter (Mission). We like San Antonio, and we like this park. The location is much better for us than Lackland, and we can make reservations (not so at Lackland). All sites are good and level, and roof top satellite dishes can be used at all of them. Verizon Mifi works well. 10 additional sites are in the process of being made.
