Winter Texan Snowbirds Love These 4 San Antonio RV Parks
San Antonio is one of the major cities of Texas, located in the south-central part of the state. San Antonio is best known as the site of the Alamo. It’s a mission where 200 Texas defenders during the Texas Revolution held it for 13 days from the 2,500 Mexican troops in 1836.
This site as well as three other Spanish colonial missions earned San Antonio the first World Heritage Site accreditation in Texas by the United Nations Organization for Education, Science, and Culture (UNESCO). The city is full of other historical sites and museums as well as local attractions like the Aquatic San Antonio, San Antonio Zoo, Tower of the Americas, and the AT&T Center.
Stroll the famous River Walk, a 15-mile path that winds through downtown, the mission, and Museum Reach. Or head to some more outdoorsy experiences like the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, the Japanese Tea Garden, the Natural Bridge Caverns, or the San Antonio Botanical Garden.
UNESCO also designated it a Creative City of Gastronomy, so be sure to check out the culinary scene. When it comes to looking for RV parks to stay at, San Antonio has over 20 parks in the area. Read on for the four best RV parks in the city.

Sure would be much handier if average prices were included in the article. That way one could immediately discount reading the ones outside some folks’ price range.
Lately, we’re really interested in RV resorts that have Pickleball as an activity. I’ve noticed that even when parks have Pickleball courts, they’re not always listed as an amenity. As it is the fastest growing sport in America and Canada, especially amongst older people, I’d be interested in an article showcasing parks that offer it.
We love these articles and thank RV Life for providing them.

Looks like all the resorts are Parking Lot campsites and plus $50 per night, no thank you. there are better spots than these choices.
I wanted to PIN the article for future reference but was unable. Did I miss it?

Thanks for the wonderful tour in
San Antonio US. I was there at the River Walk and loved it. Now though COVID 19 is keeping us inside – not travelling in Canada.
BE WELL BE SAFE.
I can also recommend Bandera Crossing, a little northwest, but still beautiful Hill Country if you’re looking to not be super-close to the city.
