We just finished a five week cross country trip from FL to CA and back in May. We stayed at 9 military RV parks. All are very different. We called a reserved a spot. We got there after hours, but they had the information for us at the front door of the clubhouse. Very nice park, nicely laid out with level concrete sites. We only stayed one night but we would come back again. It is on the back side of the base, and that gate closes after 10PM. Ask me how I know. Luckily we were out to dinner with a friend who knew the base well and took us around to the other side. Otherwise I fear we would have been a little bit lost. Please note my one negative, I am sound sensitive and there are trains that come alongside the rv park.

Very clean spacious sites. Play area for the little ones. Laundry and bath house clean and well maintained. Laundry is kind of costly but, needed. Staff, very friendly and professional. Security checks by base law enforcement. Have not found any RV parks better for the cost. If we make it this way again, we will stay again.

This is our second stay at Ft. Sam Houston.  We were impressed with our first stay and had to stop again for two nights on our trip from Florida to California.  It is very difficult to find any negatives about the RV Park.  The grounds are well kept, the sites are great and the staff was friendly and helpful.  We look forward to returning for a longer stay on our next trip through San Antonio.

Spacious campground with friendly staff. While there isn't much to do at the campground it is a short trip to the commissary, BX, fitness and pool area. Currently the indoor pool is being repaired and is closed for a year. Wifi is only available in the registration building or behind the building by the table area. There is a fenced in dog run area. 15 minute drive to the riverwalk and the Alamo.

Although only for a 1 night stay, the RV park is very nice. The only problem was getting there. We followed the instructions in the posting which is good info but not this trip. There is major construction on I-35/I-410 exactly where you want to get off. It was no problem just very slow and rough. After we got to the RV park I asked about an alternate route and there is one. No matter which way you want to go, I recommend after exiting the base use Harry Wurzbach Rd North to I-410. This turned out to be very good road all the way. A lot less congestion and no construction. Best info is to call the office to make sure the construction is still ongoing and ask for recommendations.

While starting out on a 2 1/2 month trip from Arkansas to Southern California, Winter Storm Goliath was stirring up when we were in Lubbock, TX.  Weather outlook for that area as well as our planned travels down to I-10 was a BLIZZARD WARNING. Ft Bliss TX was included in the bad weather area.  So we headed down towards San Antonio, TX. We called and spoke with Howard who told us that he could fit us in for a day or two.  We thought that it was okay and we could find another campground locally for a few more days.  We arrived after the office closed, but Howard had a site assigned to us for two nights.  The next morning, after talking with Howard in the office, he was able to get us into another site for two nights.  However, he mentioned that I needed to speak with Marty on Monday, before confirming the additional days.  In talking with Marty, she was able to rearrange sites and give us a full week, at the same site.  Howard and Marty went above & beyond to rearrange sites against reservations to get us a site for the week.  By the end of our stay, the roads going through TX & NM should be clear.  If it wasn't for these 2 great people, who are truly customer service oriented, we would have been camped at one of those KOA type of campgrounds.  The sites are VERY LEVEL, plenty of elbow room, clean, has a dog run and everything else one could want.  Close to San Antonio.  AGAIN, THANKS HOWARD & MARTY,,,,

Didn't stay here but wish we did. Nice famcamp. Long sites, even some long enough to fit my 73' coach and trailer. Level sites and large sites. Spoke to former camp host that was there... Although he said things have changed a bit, but that's how it goes with new managers. As far as I could see it would be the place to stay if visiting San Antonio! My next time through this way I will call well in advance to stay here.

Very nice RV park! Spacious sites with all paved roads & mostly level paved sites with grass between each site. Sites were spaced 30-40 feet apart and long enough for the biggest rigs. Each site had a table and BBQ grill. This park would definitely rate a 5.0 if it had wifi. Roads on post are pretty rough. Definitely get reservations as the park stays full.

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.
