San Antonio

The Family and I decided to take the trailer along for vacation this year. Even with fuel prices as high as they are, we found it was actually more affordable to pull the trailer and stay in an RV Park. Which brings me to the reason I started this thread. I searched the internet to find a park close to Sea World, which is where the 5 year old wanted to go (again). I located the Admirality RV Park approximately 1/2 mile from Sea World. I called the park to ask questions and make arrangements, since this was the first time I have ever stayed in a park. The lady I spoke to on the phone was very patient with me and all of my questions. I advised her I would be arriving pretty late ( around 1-2 AM) and asked if that would be a problem. She told me it would not. Well after fight a terrible head wind most of the way I pulled into the park at around 3 AM Texas time. I pulled up to the after hours registration house, and located a packet with my name and space number written on it. After a glance at the park map I found my way to my assigned space. I pulled right in with no problems and quitly unhooked from the TV. I plugged everything in, the whole time hoping I had not disturbed anyone. I hit the rack for a few hours, waking to birds chirping. I made my way to the office to finalize the check-in procedures. The staff was very friendly, almost too friendly for me in the morning....lol. I was actually surprised with the cleanliness, and the layout of the entire facility. The Admirality RV Park was definately worth staying at and I will definately make them a part of my travels to San Antonio in the future. I just wanted to share my experience with my first stay in an RV Park with anyone who cares to listen.

Glad to hear it!

Yeah I understand about it still be less expensive to tow than to fly and get a hotel and eat out every night. That's why we are dragging our 5'er to Disney at the end of July with a couple day stopover in SouthHaven Mississippi on the way out there.

Great trip. We lived in San Antonio before Sea World...so I'm jealous. Maybe it's time to return for a visit after 22 years.

We moved away from San Antonio 11 years ago, and lived within 10 minutes of Sea World when we were there (for 17 years). I remember when they built Admirality, about the same time they opened Sea World. We're planning a trip down there later this summer with our Rockwood 8315SS, so it's good to know the place is still in good shape. Fiesta/Six Flags is only about a 15 minute drive from there as well.

Happy Motoring!
