Traveler's World RV Resort Review & Rating
Traveler's World RV Resort Overview:Traveler's World is one of the closest, if not the closest RV Parks to downtown San Antonio - it takes about 10 minutes or less to be at the Riverwalk. The Park is clean, fairly well treed, and backs up to Riverside Municipal Golf Course. We have stayed here on a number of occasions and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The roads are paved and easy for large rigs to maneuver. Discounts are available to AAA, FMC, AARP, Good Sam, and more. Discounted tickets are also available in the office from San Antonio Tours and they can pick you up at the Park office.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:Traveler's World has over 165 sites which are a mixture of large pull throughs and back-in. Although the sites are side by side, they seem a little more spacious than most. Each site has a concrete pad with a picnic table, grassy area, and full hook-ups including: 20/30/50 AMP service, water, sewer, and cable. The pull through sites are in the center of the park with back-in sites in the front and back. Back-in sites 106 to 130 have Riverside Municipal Golf Course as a part of their view.
Traveler's World also has three Park Models available for rent. The Park Models are clean, comfortable, have a full kitchen, and sleep six to eight people at reasonable rates. Some of the other amenities at Travelers World include:
- Rec Hall with bathrooms and showers and a full kitchen
- heated swimming pool and hot tub
- a nice kids playground
- dog walk
- Office with a small store with staples, souvenirs, and RV supplies and a reading room with books, games, a computer corner, and a TV
- exercise room with some modern equipment
- game room with pool tables and video games
- dump station
- onsite propane
- laundry room
- wifi and cable
As mentioned earlier, the Park is next door to Riverside Golf Municipal Golf Course - we haven't played the course so we can't give you any recommendations. It looks rather flat, heavily treed, well played, with some side-by-side holes but very reasonable fees. Across the street from the Park is a small Mexican Restaurant that I love to walk to for breakfast migas - cheap and excellent! Another advantage of staying here is if you don't have a toad or don't want to drive, the City Bus Service is located across the street for quick 10 minute trip to downtown San Antonio.
Traveler's World always has a calender full of events like bridge, senior exercise, water aerobics, bunco, crafts, New Years Eve Dance, golf scramble, and breakfast every Saturday. We found everyone who works and stays at the park to be very friendly and outgoing.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:We love staying at Traveler's World whenever we visit San Antonio and want easy access to downtown. Usually some event or festival will brings us to the area. I look forward to starting the day by walking across the street and enjoying some migas for $3.95 - very good! We will typical spend some of our time at Traveler's World riding the 8 mile paved and flat hike and bike than runs along the banks of the San Antonio River. We have also taken an easy bike ride to a couple of the nearby missions. There are plans to extend the trail to downtown which will be fantastic.
Of course you can't come to San Antonio without visiting downtown - the Riverwalk, Alamo, and all the other attractions. We take our bikes and ride around the city.
And we love to play golf in San Antonio - they have a lot of fantastic courses. You can find a course on and read reviews on our San Antonio Golf Map.
Cool Nearby Activities:San Antonio has lots of fun things to see and do, ranging from the Alamo to the Zoo. To find things to see and do in San Antonio, check out our Outside Guide To San Antonio.
Some of our favorite things to do in San Antonio include:
- ride bikes downtown

- play golf at La Cantera, Olympia Hills, or any of the other great courses
- listen to good music at John T Flores Country Store
- take the kids and grand kids to the Zoo, SeaWorld, or Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Additional Pictures of Traveler's World 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
