It might be winter but that doesn’t mean that we can’t go RVing to great places. If you’ve ever wanted to travel deep into the heart of Texas, one great place to visit is San Antonio, a great Texas snowbird destination which, as KOA’s 2015 Campground of the Year, is always racking up stellar ratings from RVers.
Earlier this year the family-run San Antonio KOA earned two awards from KOA; Campground of the Year for 2015 and the prestigious KOA President’s and Founder’s Awards. Only the best rated KOA parks receive these honors, which are based on visitor feedback.
According to the KOA announcement, the park was founded in 1968 by Al and Fred Rohde, two brothers who wanted to build a campground to accommodate visitors to HemisFair ’68, the 1968 World’s Fair in San Antonio. The Rohde brother’s children (Ron and Sterling Rohde and their cousin, Mary Elizabeth Phillips) oversee the operation today and as these honors and ratings at RVParkReviews.com reveal, they’re the best at what they do.
Why this KOA is a Great Texas Snowbird Destination
As they say in real estate, it’s all about location and the San Antonio KOA has the corner on it in this Texas snowbird destination. Located just five miles from San Antonio’s best attractions including the Alamo and the Riverwalk, the KOA campground is situated within close range of all of them. KOA guests love this park because they don’t need to pay for expensive downtown parking when they visit San Antonio. Instead, they just hop on a shuttle bus that stops at the park and drops them off in the central tourist area less than $2.00 and 30 minutes later.
Although industrial development has sprung up all around the KOA, once you pass through the 24-hour security gates you’re in a secure, park-like setting on
