Admiralty RV Resort in San Antonio Review and Rating
Admiralty RV Resort has over 200 sites, some cabins, several nice amenities, and is conveniently located a minute from Sea World! The staff is great, the Park is clean and well maintained, the streets are paved and wide enough to easily maneuver into the sites which are level and shaded by some mature sprawling trees, which is the only clue that Admiralty RV Resort is over 30 years old. It's not surprising that Admiralty RV Resort has a five-star rating and is recognized as one of the best RV resorts in San Antonio. It also made Texas Outside's list of the Best RV Parks in Texas.
Admiralty RV Resort is located less than a mile off of Highway 151 and a minute from Sea World. Highway 151 provides easy access to the Alamo, Riverwalk, and downtown San Antonio. The park is located in a residential neighborhood and is quiet with no freeway noise or honking horns! HEB, Walmart, Home Depot and several restaurants are within minutes of Admiralty.
Discounts are available for military, AARP, and Good Sam. My only complaint about Admiralty is that there is no cable (but several local stations are available) and there is no internet services except fee based Tangonet.
The Sites and Amenities at Admiralty RV Resort
There are over 200 sites at Admiralty which are a mixture of back-ins and pull throughs. The pull throughs are in three long rows and the back-ins are along the perimeter of the park. All of the sites have 30/50 AMP service, water, and electric and the hook-ups are conveniently located so extensions shouldn't be needed.
The pull-through sites are 60 feet long and 8 feet or so wide (fairly close together) and most have a large sprawling tree providing some excellent shade in the hot summers. Several of the sites have a tow or extra vehicle parking pad. And all have a brick patio with a picnic table.
The luxury sites are the end corner sites with a large landscaped grassy area. There are three super long sites that are around 110 feet long.
If you don't want to camp or have friends joining you without an RV, the nine park model cabins are perfect. Each of them is one bedroom, air-conditioned and heated, and has a picnic table, front patio, TV, mini refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, utensils, pots and pans, plates, and living room with a table and chairs and a couch. Linens are not provided.

A Typical Texas Outside Day
We selected Admiralty RV Resort primarily because of it's proxcimity to Sea World, downtown San Antonio, and a golf course that we wanted to play.
Read our article about a visit to Sea World and it's sister Aquatica to find out how much fun it is to visit these two top rated attractions which are less that a mile from Admiralty RV Resort.
During our first night around nine thirty we heard some big booms and thought that San Antonio was under attach. We looked our front door and discovered and watch a very good fireworks show at Sea World.
The next morning we tied off at The Golf Club of Texas which was less than 15 minutes away. Fun and forgiving course that's suitable for all levels of play. Read our review of The Golf Club of Texas to learn more about this course.
We've visited San Antonio on lots of different ocassions and on this trip we discovered The Pearl which is a very cool entertainment district centered around the otld and utilizing the old Pearl Brewery facilities. The Pearl is home to an upscale hotel, several good but a tad pricey restaurants, some shops, some cool bars, a live music venue (The Jazz), and a food court with several food options. The evening we were there we got to listen to some good music in the square with a splash pad.
Near By Things To See and Do
As I mentioned, from Admiralty Resort you can easily get to any of the things to see and do in San Antonio - see Texas Outside's San Antonio page to find lots of fun things to do. We love to ride bikes around the Riverwalk area and now San Antonio has rental bikes through out the city and several locations with electric scooters - can't wait to try one of those.
Some of the major attractions include: Six Flags, the Riverwalk, the space needle, the Alamo, several missions, a kayaking park, and lots more. Read our articles about a fun visit to Sea World and Aquatica.
We love to golf and San Antonio is loading with some excellent courses (the courses at La Cantera Resort of the JW Marriott are our favorite - see this list of the Best Golf Courses in San Antonio). Here is a San Antonio golf map to help you find all of the other San Antonio golf courses.
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
