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.

We stayed in October 2013 and enjoyed the actual campground. It was very neat and clean and the sites spacious. We did not use the laundry or shower room so we can't comment on that. The only issue we had was the woman that ran the front desk. On two separate occasions we asked simple questions and she was extremely rude and smart mouthed to us. First question was, Is there a site with a tree that we could move to (the one we were in, was in the direct sun until about 6 in the evening, our awning wouldn't even block it, with my husband's heart trouble we could not sit outside much). Her response was "don't you have an awning? put it out." Next question was, what address would we have my husband's medication sent to. My husband was having a hard time hearing her on the phone and asked her to wait so that he could hand it to me. When I answered, she said "Well, for anyone who is listening, I will tell you what to do." I remained friendly and mentioned that the address she gave me was not the one listed on their website. She told me that if I had bothered to continue reading that it says that you can not have mail delivered to that address. The web site does not say this, but I decided not to argue with her, for fear of saying something that I might later regret. Too, bad because the place itself is very nice. Just don't want to ever have to deal with that woman again.

Our first time here. If you "need" a soda, buy it before you get here. No vending machines. Nice neat camp. Laundry is $1.50 per load. Some machines out of order. 50 and 30 amp hookups water and dump at all sites. Good selection of local tv stations. Don't need cable!

The park is all paved and sites are paved. We where there during the government shutdown so the place was being run by the camp hosts who the best they could under these conditions. Hours at the office were one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon. Excellent location to explore San Antonio and the area. No WIFI or cable which is not a problem for us. Base amenities are close at hand. Restrooms and showers are in good shape and well kept. There are some trees in the park for shade. This is a training post so there are lots of large formations marching to a from schools. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

G.G. left this review using the Directory software: - Just a note about Fort Sam Fam Camp and the facilities. We have stopped at Fort Sam for several years either over night or for a month at a time. Our first experience was back in '05. Without a reservation I called Baker and she said come on I will make room for you, however it may be only for one night. I agreed to move as needed and we moved our TT three times over a period of a week or so. That started as a continuing stop on our way to South Texas. Now, we have sold our TT and have bought a Winter home in Mission and will no longer be stopping at Fort Sam. We will miss seeing Baker and the camp hosts as they always treated us as old friends when we showed up. Old Sarge 38

This was our first experience at a Fam Camp. It was a good choice. I arrived late and found the site that was reserved for us. Clean, quiet, and well groomed. We are scheduled at several other camps this summer, hope they measure up.

We have stayed in this part several times over the past few years. We always look forward to our stay at Ft. Sam. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. Baker is wonderful. The facility is clean and well-maintained. A lot of construction going on throughout the base. We plan on staying again for a week or two this summer.

Baker, the camp manager, was an outstanding help in every aspect from arrival directions to checking out. We left for seven days as required after we had been here for 30. The spots are mostly level and all concrete and pavement. Some shade trees are scattered around. There is a nice dog run and two very well maintained bath houses. Nice playground for the kids to use! Although this is only the second military campground we have stayed at, I think this is top notch! To update a previous reviewers comments about bad roads: yes the roads all over San Antonio are horrible! However, the section of road between I-410 and the base, which is Harry Wurzbach, is now complete. We first arrived in March when the road was horrible and I was shocked that this was the preferred route. When we came back in April, the redone road was the best drive in the city! To avoid all the roads, if you arrive during duty hours between Monday and Friday, you can come in the road right next to the FamCamp which would be the BAMC hospital exit off I-35.

We just really really enjoy this place, great staff, super clean bathrooms, great laundry machines and priced right. Site was perfect. Only thing that was bad was the no WIFI at the park. I did go up on post and used the wifi at the mini mall...3.50 per hr to get online. That really was a let down. Someday the road construction will be finished on Ritiman road. We used the Holbrook gate off petroleum drive...it does close at 2200 and weekends and holidays, so we arrived on a Thursday.

The RV Park is great, staff is friendly enough and facilities are nice. The only down side is the route in. Per direction you take the exit off of I-35 and travel Rittman Road for 2 miles. The road is under full construction, down to 2 lanes that are so narrow that we clipped mirrors on a passing truck. The construction area is extremely rough and we actually thought it would shake our rig apart. I would suggest that you take a longer route to I-410 and Harry Warzbauch and travel South on HW to the entry as stated in the directions.

We stayed here in a large 5th wheel. Great facilities in a great location at a great price. The only detraction is that access roads getting onto the base are narrow and it is easy to scrape up your coach (tree limbs) if you aren't careful.

Great staff. The campgrounds are clean with nice trees here and there. Our site was convenient to the restrooms and laundry. Both were clean and warm, while cold outside! Water pressure was great, concrete pad was even clean and clear of debris. No fire pit, but they did have a BBQ grill. During the holidays a lot of the rigs had their Christmas lights up and or decorations on their site. Made for wonderful evening walks! The library in the office was wonderful, but the coffee was terrible :)

Just stayed here in a 37 Ft motorhome with a Jeep toad. The grounds and facilities are well cared for, and the staff is excellent. I thought the staff a little rough when we were en route and spoke to them over the phone, but they immediately warmed upon meeting them face to face. This was understandable, as standing and speaking with them for any amount of time is a task in pausing the conversation so they can answer the ever ringing phone, or to answer a question from a park resident. They never hesitate to help and often gave us the local gems to try out. Joe, Baker and the hosts Steve and Bryant are great! The park is excellent and would be at $100 more a month. For those that are considering this park, I would absolutely recommend setting a reservation. The first day we were here the ladies up front indicated that they had not had an open spot in a month! Additionally, don't plan on staying for more than 30 days. They strictly enforce the 30 day stay limit, and require you to leave the park for 7! days before returning. I thought this a little excessive, especially for the Active Duty folks, but it really shows in the parks appearance. I didn't see any roots growing from the trailers and coaches! This park has no cable or WIFI at this time. They say they are trying, but I don't believe this will ever happen. With the costs involved and the militaries steadily shrinking budgets, we should be glad to have these amenities at all. The installation's infrastructure is HORRIBLE!! The roads are trashed, just getting the coach in was extreme. Additionally, if you intend to use the Winans Gate ensure you arrive prior to 2200, as it closes nightly. Also, DO NOT attempt to arrive during rush hour 1500-1800, it may take you 2 hours just to get from I35 to the gate! Also at this time Rittiman and Harry Wurzbach streets are under major construction. If you have a wide body coach, a weekend approach may be the best for you, as the weekday traffic is insane and they don't give an inch, even to a 40k pound motor home. Finally, Ft Sam is a training base with fresh Soldiers and Airman learning medicine. This is to be read as a warning to keep on your toes while driving the base. The little guys are everywhere and where this stuff called Camo that makes them hard to see. Would whole heartedly recommend this camp for future stays!
