Thursday, October 24 Through Friday, October 25, 2019
Because of an early winter storm coming through the Texas Panhandle, we changed our reservations to arrive a day early. Instead of the usual pull through spot, we received a corner back-in spot. This worked just fine for us as all we wanted to do was avoid ugly winter road conditions on our way home to San Antonio.
Kerrville was the last stop on a long trip that started at this same park in mid August (Kerrville KOA Journey). The KOA replaces the Buckhorn Lake Resort as our de facto go-to park for returning home from West Texas. For some reason, the Buckhorn won’t give us reservations anymore. We pass by the Buckhorn on the way in and out of the KOA as both are on Goat Creek Road. Buckhorn is never full. We wonder if Buckhorn’s problem is one of truck camper discrimination. In my mind, being snooty lowers a park’s value. No matter, the KOA is less expensive, more responsive and quieter.
This would be at least the third time we have stayed in this park. Restrooms are worn but clean. The store and laundromat are larger than most KOA’s as the KOA also serves a mobile home park located behind the KOA property. They sell gas, diesel and propane onsite.
As the park fills up, WIFI slows down. Not surprising. AT&T and Verizon mobile data service works fine. Some sites, like the one we had, have cable TV.
The dogs visited the dog park a few times and enjoyed it immensely.
We will stay here again on our way in and out of San Antonio.
Hope to see you on the road ahead!
