Kerrville KOA, A Texas Hill Country Favorite

Kerrville KOAThe Kerrville KOA, located in the Texas Hill Country an hour’s drive northwest of San Antonio, is centrally located yet blissfully quiet.

It features amenities like wireless Internet, swimming pool and a large recreation room with a full kitchen. Potluck holiday dinners add to the festive atmosphere, as does the largest pink flamingo kite in South Texas, available for viewing in our campground store.

Your KOA hosts understand road fever; just wait until you see their collection of antique cars. (They’re happy to give you a ride, weather and mechanics permitting!)

Visitors like to meander along the Guadalupe River for a swim or motorcycle our winding vista roads. Spring will arrive soon and that means it will be a great time to drive the winding Hill Country roads to view the fields of wild flowers our region is noted for. Highways 39 and 187 west of our campground are especially scenic.

Owners Marshal and Sherri Gray welcome their guests to the San Angelo KOA, a 10-acre campground covered with native mesquite trees.

We’re located in a historic spot between the Hill Country and the rolling plains. Our community started as a military outpost – Fort Concho – to protect the settlers as they moved West after the Civil War.

You can shop for antiques, visit museums and play golf at one of our three public golf courses.

Nearby attractions include Fort Concho National Historic Landmark, founded in 1867. Seventeen buildings on the fort grounds have been restored giving the visitors an authentic feel for the frontier days of the mid-1880s.
