BLORA – Fort Sam Houston $17 a day concrete slab RV site with electric/water/ covered picnic table/grill Pros: The price!! This is by far the cheapest campground we have ever stayed at Full hook ups are only $1 more a day, if available There are 3 RV areas at BLORA Trails near the grounds This place is HUGE! It’s situated on a 12 acre lake perfect for fishing, swimming or just enjoying the view Sites are relatively level Friendly staff (available 24hrs a day) Covered picnic areas by the water Parking everywhere, you can move your RV to be by the water for the day Free waterslide/paddleboats (after June 1st) Cottages, pavilions, picnic areas for rent Dry storage for boats/RV available Horseback riding trails nearby Mountain Bike trails nearby Civilians can come on post for $10/car, DOD pays $3/car – fee waved for your RV stay Cons: No swimming in the lake until after June 1st (lifeguards must be on duty) No WiFi Laundry consists of 1 washer and 2 dryers that are housed outside and are simply nasty Long distance to anything including base (10 mile drive to nearest gate) but that means star filled skies Though there are plenty of them throughout the park the bathhouses were more like a prison restrooms than a Park restrooms with metal toilets! None of them were well cared for, I have never seen such a bug build up in restroom supposedly being maintained by staff. People speed through the park constantly, I’m talking 40/50 MPH which is annoying but even more so very dangerous – we like to walk while in RV parks and doing so at this park was truly not worth the risk of being run over. 2 dump stations in park, both a bit awkward to get into and they are always flooded with well water so you will get your feet wet while dumping tanks +/- As we mentioned there are 3 separate RV areas in this park a little bit about each: Cottage RV park = near rental houses, have full hook ups but the layout is awkward between the water/electric/dump, there is ZERO shade for this area so be ready for the heat in the summer Cedar RV Park = These sites are closest to the lake but they only have 50 amp hook ups and none of the sites are full sites (electric/water only) Deer Park = the most shaded pads of the park, middle between the other two parks, Laundry is located at this park *** = They are adding additional RV spots in a field along the shore line in what they currently call We were told they were working towards upgrading the sites to full hook ups with 30 and 50 amp so be sure to check with them for current information.
