REVIEW Hidden Valley RV Park San Antonio

A wonderfully quiet bit of country and very close to the city. To get here from the 90, take loop 410 South to I35 and head South on I35 but immediately exit on Fischer Rd (exit 144). Travel 3/4 mile east on Fischer Rd and turn Right on Campground Rd. This sign is easy to miss so keep a good watch for it. Also don't let the mile drive down this gravel road scare you away. The end is a quiet littlr peaceful place!

Value 4/5
This is a passport America site so we paid $15 instead of the regular $30. For $15 it was wonderful...we usually boondoock so for an RV park we liked it for it's natural wonders.

Site Quality 4.5/5
We were first offered a shaded, crushed gravel pad which looked level but chose to take the more open field space as we needed to make sure the satelitte would be OK. This field site #31 didn't need to be leveled at all. Full hook ups. Laundry facilities available and excellent Wifi. There are no regular plugs for extention cords etc.

Facility Fun 4.5/5
Amazing if you like to catch bugs, try your hand at fishing, visit the horses, swing on a hammock, go for a walk, listen to crickets chirp...We had a lot of fun here! There is even a Bonfire Cove area which is a community area for bonfires (when fire bans aren't in effect), tents for shade and bug relief (we didn't experience too many mosquitos etc) with chairs and a few toys, a couple of bikes and horseshoes to play. Only a small swimming hole to cool off could make this any more fun!

Natural Surroundings 5/5
Open fields, wooded trails, a creek for fishing, many bugs, birds, and even turtles in the creek.

Bathrooms N/A

Staff 5/5
I think Teri is the friendliest RV/Campground owner I have ever met! She is happy to answer any questions you have, help you plan your local activities, print off discount coupons for attractions if you need her to and help with anything she possibly can. She makes you feel welcome and wants you to enjoy your stay.

Location 4/5
As you drive up you may wonder where it is you are headed but this little RV park is a real counrty gem and you are less then 20 minutes from down town San Antonio where you can find anything and everything you need and more.

Overal 4.5/5
If you are looking for all the bows and whistles then this park is NOT for you. There is no pool or games room or store for supplies but it is full of character and if you want a quiet little spot in the country but still want to have close access to the city then this is the place for you. This family run park is full of Southern charm and makes you feel like you are right at home. If I ever come to San Antonio again I would stay here for sure.
