This is a very different military campground. I guess I should say it really isn't a military campground. It is run by Brooks Development Authority. It is scheduled to close in 2011. That will be bad thing, because it is a nice quiet place to stay. Wild Bill as my wife calls him is the camp host. He will do whatever it take to make your stay worth it. We where only going to stay one night and then head to CCNAS. You can see we changed our plans. There is no BX, Commissary, and bowling alley. That's okay, they have a gym, gas station, and a little club anyone can go to with a military ID. There is a guy that shares his wifi with fellow campers. The library has free wifi. If you get there on the 1st of the month and stay the whole month it is a flat rate. If you get there on the 2nd you don't get the same flat rate. That is the one strange thing about the pricing. Yes there are some fulltimers, but that happens at a lot of campground. This is a place to stop if you are passing through the SA area.

Based on the previous reviews and low ratings, I expected to see a dump at this campground. Obviously, there's been a GREAT improvement here! We didn't see anything wrong, except the policy of letting campers stay indefintely. Even then, there wasn't any trashy RV sites or obvious homesteading. Instead, those RV sites that have been occupied for the season looked pretty normal, except for the tall grass under their RV's. The showers and bathrooms are a bit old, but the camp host is doing their best to keep them clean. The grass is mowed, but not neatly trimmed. There was only one vacant site during our visit. Sites are HUGE and spaced VERY far apart. The campground is located in a quiet part of the base. Although there's not many customer facilities on base, The roads aren't any rougher or narrower than other roads we've been on to access a military campground (better here than some others). There's plenty of room to for big rigs. I would prefer to stay here than any of the 'popular' military campgrounds in San Antonio. It's worth stopping by to see if there's an open RV site.
