Spring Break near San Antonio, TX

Can someone recommend some nice campgrounds near San Antonio that are family friendly?
I wanted a state park, but they're all booked for spring break.

Octo,
Here in Florida the state parks always hold a few sites back for first come first served. We've had some success calling them the night before and if there's a vacancy we're at the front gate before check in. Perchance does Texas have this system?

I have no idea since I'm so new at this. I'm hoping another Texas traveler will reply and let us both know.
We haven't even purchased our trailer yet, but I made the reservation for this summer because I noticed how quickly they were filling up. They told me I could get a refund on my campsite if I cancelled by a certain day.
It appears I'm out of luck for spring break unless someone cancels. I will keep checking, but I'm not too confident.
I'm realizing that I will be scheduling my trips very far in advance. We are both educators, so our vacation schedule is rather set.

Spring Break near San Antonio, TX

As far as I know, Texas state parks do not hold back anything for first come first served. State parks fill up fast, especially during holidays so booking 9-10 months in advance is now the new norm. Maybe you should look at COE or federal parks


Edit: you can download the RV PARKY app and search for parks around SA. There are lots of RV resorts that look nice as well

I've never stayed here: Campground but I have friends who stayed and said they loved it and was really nice. It's just south of San Antonio on the Southern Loop.

Cranes Mills park (Canyon Lake area) always have several sites for walk-up basis.

https://www.recreation.gov/camping/c...&parkId=108384

I second the RV parky app/site mentioned above. I've used that a lot and it's a great tool to research locations and most importantly (for me anyway) I use it to view the sites (Google Earth as well).

https://www.rvparky.com/

Also, I haven't stayed at this park but friends of mine love it.

Here is a list of the top 10 RV sites according to Yelp

Hope that help you.

In San Antonio the KOA is nice, Iíve also stayed at Greentree Village, but it is more of a long term camping, they have a section for travelers/vacationers, both have pools, but the KOA is more family oriented, only a half mile from At&t stadium, home of the San Antonio Spurs.

I also lived in San Antonio for 2 years, we liked going to Port Arkansas and camping on the beach, this picture was spring break 2015, not crowded, the crowds go to South Padre island for Spring break. You can camp on the beach with a beach permit, I think it was only like $15 or $20 for a season. It was my favorite place to boondock camp in Texas! Of course it was too hot in July or August to boondock anywhere in direct sun in Texas.

We stayed at Travelers World RV resort. City bus picks up across the street for about a 15 minute ride downtown. Also on a bike path for I think a 3 mile bike ride downtown on a path along the river. It seemed like a family friendly park in 2016.

The Corps of Engineer parks are closing due to the government shutdown. Hopefully this won't last long. https://www.recreation.gov/

Another good site to find campgrounds and read reviews is here:
