San Antonio sits at the southwest corner of the Texas Triangle, with Dallas and Houston making up the other two points. It is situated as deep in the heart of Texas as any major Texas city is, meaning it summers can be uncomfortably hot. The rest of the year, however, offers comfortable camping temperatures. The city attracts more than 26 million visitors a year, and for good reason. There is plenty to get out of San Antonio, whether you’re primarily a camper or a tourist.
The site with the best mix of camping and tourism is Travelers World RV Resort. It’s situated only 3 miles from both of San Antonio’s most popular attractions, the Riverwalk and the Alamo. At the same time, it offers those staying at one of its 165 RV hook-ups all the standard amenities you’d expect from an upscale RV park.
For those wishing to stay more out in the country, try the Alamo River RV Ranch. It’s still just 16 miles from San Antonio, but it offers 3 miles of its own private wooded trails. In addition, is has almost of mile of its own river front for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. Campers frequently see local wildlife, like armadillos, on the grounds.
We’ve already mentioned that the Riverwalk and the Alamo are San Antonio’s two biggest draws. Outside of that, La Villita Historical Arts Village is a combination of art galleries and traditional Mexican restaurants near the San Antonio River that’s worth visiting. To stay active, walk or bike the 5-mile Mission Hike and Bike Trail. Outside the city, near New Braunfels, Texas, the Natural Bridge Caverns extend 230 feet below the surface and offer tours that will take you to depths of 180 feet.
