This friendly family run campground is located in a nicely rural setting about 17 miles SW from the tourist epicenter of San Antonio, including the historical Alamo, San Jose Missions National Park, and the charming downtown San Antonio River Walk with its old churches (visit the San Fernando cathedral). The 97 acre Alamo River RV Ranch only includes "Alamo" in its name as a widespread SA area marketing tool; the river that flows along it is actually the Medina River (there is no such thing as the "Alamo River," though there is in fact a "Woman Hollering Creek" in the region!). As others have mentioned, the upper part of the RV Ranch is developed as a standard private RV campground, with many pull-through, full-service gravel sites with a picnic table and small grassy area. Semi-permanent residents appear to be parked around the perimeter area, some evidently working in nearby oil fields and mostly in trailers, but they mostly keep to themselves. The first night we arrived a bit after the gate closed, but were able to get quickly ushered in to our site. For most of the week it was quiet, though the Thanksgiving weekend got busy and we ended up with a big family including a trailer and tent adjacent to us. What truly distinguishes this park is the spectacular lower area next to the Medina River, reached by passing by the horse and cattle acreage. Down there are water-only sites reachable by dirt roads, but was primarily enjoyable to us as a marvelous example of quiet, unspoiled South Texas parkland with many deer and birds (look for the white doe). While we typically gravitate to state and county parks, this had some of the feel with a strong WiFi to boot. There is evidence of pride in the maintenance of the restrooms / showers / laundry and congenial staff with engaging stories to tell. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Grading this campground is hard. It has so many nice things but the bad overrides a lot of it. Pro: nice large sites, lots of wildlife on the hiking trails through the woods, Close to lots of activities, a office staff that it tops and very polite, and a security gate for after hours. Cons: No pool, many full time residence some of which even installed swing sets on there lot for the kids, train every night blowing its horns, due to drought the river is almost non existent, many residence work so lots of noise and traffic in morning as everyone leaves for work. Hard for me to say if I will stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects the Good Sam discount and the rates recently increased slightly. The setting, scenery and trails at this park are very nice. The tent sites are away from the RV sites in a more remote, but in a nice setting and appeared well maintained. The staff and owners of this park were friendly and helpful. Construction mentioned in previous reviews seems to be complete. Most sites with new modern water and electric posts. No trash or construction debris in sight. Internal road and sites hard packed and level gravel with concrete patios of various sizes. It rained most of our arrival date and the next day, but grassy areas were not muddy. The restrooms and showers are nice and large. Although did not use the laundry room, noted it to be of good size with 4 washers and dryers with iron and ironing board provided. Clubhouse/office/store is equipped with pool table, kitchen area with complimentary hot beverages and a TV area. They offer books and movies that guests can borrow. They did not have the horses available, like the web site advertised, but it is still early in the year. Some train noise during the night. Would stay there again. We camped at Alamo River RV Resort in a Motorhome.
