Full Review

After the Flatonia ex-cow-pasture boggy site, this RV site was heaven! Top of the Hill RV park is located, well, on top of a hill a few miles west of Boerne (pronounced Ber-ney) on I-10 off of Exit 533. The RV sites are terraced up a hill that looks a bit intimidating at first, but is actually surprisingly easy to navigate. We snaked up the hill to an extra-long pull through site at the top. We didn’t even need to unhook our toad first.  The gravel site was level and, we were happy to determine, firmly solid. Our jacks didn’t sink a millimeter. We had full hook ups (50 amp electric, water, sewer) and enough room to park our large pick up truck front OR rear. The site also included a picnic table. No fire ring, and no fire in the community fire ring at present due to dry conditions.

The campground is immaculately maintained with a swimming pool, coin laundry, banquet room, club house, and office/store. There were a few planned activities:  bingo on Thursday night, coffee/donuts on Saturday morning, and sporadic pot lucks and ice cream socials. Overall the campground vibe was very quiet.

The office staff and campground host were very nice. I ordered a package from Amazon during our stay, and the office called me to make sure I knew it had arrived. Side note: I never assume that a campground will accept mail/packages, I always ask before I ship!

The campground offered wifi for light duty surfing (not intended for streaming), but we found our AT&T signal to be adequate for our internet needs. San Antonio channels are available over the air and our satellite dish worked without obstruction. Our premium site normally runs $45/night, but with our  Passport America 50% discount, it was only $22.50 / night. Sweet! They also accept Good Sam discount and offer weekly and monthly discount rates.

Top of the Hill offers a centralized location from which to explore the Texas Hill Country. San Antonio is about 30 minutes away, and the town of Boerne with Wal-Mart and a huge H-E-B grocery store is only about 15 minutes up the road.

This was a fantastic value for such a nicely kept site. I would stay here again happily.

Bottom Line: Great value, central location, nice people. Nothing not to like!
