Review of Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort in San Antonio
Blazing Star Luxury Resort is clearly one of the best RV Resorts in Texas - great sites, clean and well maintained, good amenities and activities, lots of shade trees, and easy access to lots to do. It's not surprising that Trailer Life rated it the best RV park in San Antonio and we included it on our list of the Best RV Parks in Texas.
Located west of downtown San Antonio on Loop 1604, Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas, or explore San Antonio and the area north and west of downtown. This is a fantastic luxury RV resort and an excellent place to camp or stay in one of their cabins for a day, weekend or longer.
Blazing Star is owned by Sun RV Resorts which has a portfolio of several excellent RV resorts in 16 states from California to Florida. Their seven Texas Resorts are also some of the best RV Resorts in Texas. Sun visits Blazing Star at least once a quarter and recommends and funds several ideas for improvement. Some of the improvements they have made since they took over include: adding 6 additional cabins, redoing the laundry room and the bathrooms, and removing an annoying curb leading into some of the RV sites.
Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort has paved roads, level concrete parking pads, lots of trees for shade, and plenty of amenities and weekly activities to keep you busy. In addition to 286 back-in and pull through full hook-up sites there are 34 cabins that sleep two to six people.
Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort is located on loop 1604 so you have easy access to anywhere you want to go. And you're less than 5 minutes to SeaWorld, 15 minutes to Fiesta Texas, and 20 to downtown. Wal-Mart and HEB are within a couple minutes drive and you have several choices for restaurants, shopping, and more.
The Park is very well maintained, everything is very clean, and the staff is helpful and friendly. We can highly recommend Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort as a great place to stay when visiting San Antonio or just to get away for a weekend.
Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort has 286 full hookup sites that are aligned in 7 rows and around three-quarters of the perimeter of the property. The 69 sites along the perimeter are back-in sites and the rest are long pull throughs which on average are 60' long by 15' wide. Each of the sites have 20/30/50 AMP service, cable, water, and most have a picnic table. The hookups are conveniently located and shouldn't require an extension.
The sites are level and long and have a separate concrete pad for the picnic table and some have a concrete parking pad for your vehicle There is a grassy area ranging from 10 to 50 feet and more between sites - the sites on the north end of the Park are very spacious. Pricing for the sites is based on yard size - 15', 15' to 25', and the premier sites which are 25' or mor of yard space.
The roads are paved but it's a tad tight for big rigs trying to make the turns (thanks to trees) and maneuvering around the park into the sites. Some sites are shaded and others are open with no trees.
In addition to RV sites, Blazing Star has 34 cabins that are a mixture of one bedroom, two bedroom, and one bedroom with a loft. All of the cabins have a full sized bed, sleeper sofa and couch in the living area, full kitchen with all the utensils, linens, two cable TVs, a porch with an outside table and chairs, and more. The cabins will sleep 4 to 6 people and they are very clean and comfortable - perfect for a weekend or longer of fun in San Antonio and much better than an expensive hotel room.
Some of the amenities at Blazing Star Luxury Resort include:
We stayed at Blazing Star Luxury Resort on a recent trip to San Antonio with the grand kids. And shortly after the RV was plugged in, all five of us were having fun in the pool, playing some arcade games and a game of pool, and enjoying an ice cream.
The next day we were up early to beat the crowds to Aquatica and SeaWorld. On this trip, we spent all day enjoying everything that Aquatica has to offer and we all loved it! Read about our enjoyable visit to SeaWorld and Aquatica
After a good nights sleep, we headed to downtown San Antonio to Ripley's Believe It or Not which was fun. That was followed by more pool time and some table tennis.
Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort is close to lots of good restaurants and we had some good meals at 54th Street, Two Step (great live music on the patio), and Viola's Ventanas Mexican restaurant which also had live music on the patio and a big playground for the kids.
The advantage of staying at Blazing Star Luxury Resort is that you're close to lots of fun things to see and do. Some of our favorites include:
Our favorite way to see San Antonio is by bicycling around the city. The City now has a bike sharing program where you can rent a bike at any of the Bike Stations and ride it for the day and return it to any of the other Bike Stations. See our San Antonio map for things to do and our Top Ten Things To Do in San Antonio.
If you got more time, the Cowboy Capital of Texas (Bandera) is fun, Natural Bridges (cave, zip line, safari park, and more) is a full of activity, Boerne is good for shopping, and there are some very scenic drives within an hour.
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
