Top Of The Hill RV Resort Review & Rating
Top Of The Hill RV Resort Overview:
Top of the Hill RV Park is perched on the top of hill in one of the prettiest parts of the Texas Hill Country. As such, almost all of the sites have magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The terrain is tiered so each row of sites has a view. Some of the sites have concrete pads and the rest are packed gravel. Most of the sites are fairly spacious and have some trees for shade.
Top of the Hill is a very clean and well maintained park and the staff is friendly and service oriented. The park is conveniently located to a number of fun things to see and do and has very easy access to the I-10 freeway.

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
We enjoying staying at Top of the Hill RV Resort because it is centrally located to a number of fun things to see and do. We like to golf at Tapatio Springs which has 27 holes of fabulous golf, shop the quaint shops at Boerne or Comfort, and eat at Po Po restaurant. Just down the street from Top of the Hill RV Resort is Nelson City Party Barn which is a very fun place to drink, dance or listen to some great live bands, and party with a lively crowd.

Additional Pictures of Top Of The Hill RV Resort
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
- Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
- Park Condition: the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
- Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
- Campsites: low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
- Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
