Alamo River RV Resort Joins Tents for Troops
San Antonio has long been called "Military City" but only since February has there been a resort offering back to the nation's military heroes.
Alamo River RV Ranch Resort, located on the southwest side of San Antonio, has signed up to be the first to offer active military the "Tents for Troops" free camping, according to a news release.
Under the 600-year-old "Santa Ana Oak" where the president of Mexico pitched his tent on his way to the Alamo, Charlie Brown, owner of Alamo River Resort, announced that his park would be "the first to offer back to our military the opportunity to come and relax in the country."
Situated on 93 acres of Medina River frontage, Alamo River offers tent and RV camping, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, birding, mountain bike riding and BYOH (bring your own horse) trail riding.
Brown, who was a Navy man in the 1950s, is eager to offer to the military the opportunity to come and bring their family to his resort. The military bases in the San Antonio area have such great recreation opportunity with everything from basic camping and fishing to the rental of RVs so the active military person can get out and enjoy the offerings of Texas, Brown stated.
