Travel dates :: February 26 – March 7, 2016
After eating our weight in tacos in Austin, we headed 80 miles southwest to San Antonio, Texas. While in San Antonio we had the great pleasure of staying at Travelers World RV Resort. We had heard great things about this San Antonio campground being the perfect home base for going into the city, and it certainly was – let me tell you why we liked it so much!
Our site at Travelers World RV Resort had full hook-ups. This means water, electricity (30/50 amp) and sewer. We also had cable with dozens of channels and FREE wifi for up to two devices during our stay. The wifi worked GREAT – which is always a perk that is often hit or miss depending on the campground.
In terms of amenities at Travelers World RV Resort we LOVED the pool. Seriously. The pool was heated and was kept at an extremely comfortable temperature for swimming. Truly heated, like a nice warm bath – it was located in the middle of the park, a short walking distance from our site. The pool was well maintained, well lit (at night) and had lots of lawn chairs nearby. The kids went swimming daily, which we love because it wears them out – they have so much energy!
I’m in hot tub, he’s in pool, we’re both happy.
And right next to the pool you’ll find the hot tub. I loved that the hot tub was actually HOT and right next to the pool so I could soak and kept a close eye on my kids while they swam in the pool. Kids aren’t allowed in the hot tub but the pool was so warm, they didn’t care!
In addition to the pool, Travelers World RV Resort had a nice, fenced playground where my kids spent plenty of afternoons. And next to the playground was an awesome game room, foosball, ping pong, pool, checkers, air hockey, puzzles, books. They really had a lot of activities for families at this location.
And speaking of families, while at Travelers World RV Resort we were joined by five other traveling families. And we had a couple other families drive into the resort for a big group dinner. We asked the front desk and they allowed us to use their clubhouse for our big traveling family dinner on a Saturday night.

No additional charge, they just unlocked the room and allowed us to set up our food (potluck style) on a large island and there were lots of tables and chairs already set up.
All these families travel full-time – how cool is that!?!

This was such a NICE facility with great decorations and very clean and it was so nice of them to let us use it. With 30+ people it would have been a very different gathering in single campsite – but this was perfect.
In this same clubhouse they also serve group meals (for a nominal per person fee) and host resort activities. Check the community calendar during your stay to see what’s going on.
And right next to the community room and playground was the laundry facility. It was some of the most affordable laundry we’ve found on the road – $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry – and the machines worked fantastic! It was so cheap we caught up on all our laundry – including sheets.
We joined one of our favorite traveling families, the Bareneckers, and we hopped the bus to downtown for the day. It drops you off right near the Alamo!
Travelers World RV Resort is a great choice for an RV park if you want to visit the city because it’s RIGHT on the bus line. The bus literally stops in front of the main office and for under $8 our family was able to get day passes for roundtrip bus rides from the RV park to downtown San Antonio (dropped off right at the River Walk, Alamo and other attractions).
You’ll also find that Travelers World RV Resort is located right on the river! Just outside the park you can take the River Walk path about 5 miles into town. Especially great if you have bikes.
The only thing I wished was different about this RV park was our actual site. Between our 30 foot trailer and our long truck our site was pretty cramped. We barely had room to squeeze between the truck and trailer and the cement pad wasn’t very large – just big enough for a picnic table. But small spaces seem to be the trend with more urban campgrounds where space is a premium and we didn’t spend much time at our site anyway (more on that in a later post), so this wasn’t much of an issue. I’m certain we could have switched to a larger pull-thru site (a lot more spacious) if we really had a problem with it, but we made it work. On the plus side, the sites were nicely graveled and level and the roads were paved and well maintained.
We enjoyed our stay here so much that we kept extending our stay. What started as a 5-day reservation turned into 10 days! If you’re a Good Sam member you get a 10% discount off your stay and sites start at $44 or $271/week. Customer service was fantastic. Location was prime. And we are glad we picked this spot for our launching pad for San Antonio!
