This spot would be okay for a smaller rig for a night or two only. The site said it accommodated 50 ft, however my truck and 26 ft travel trailer had significant difficulty maneuvering the tight turns. No turnaround spots. You have to back out while avoiding trees and other obstacles. There is one concrete pad site but it was so close to the road I did not want to use it. The furthest area that I was at was still about 100 to 150 ft from a loud road. The noise does die down in the evening. Electrical hookup was available, but out of reach from my rig. Water is available. Grass is full of stickers. My little dog had to be very slow and cautious when walking.
The one horse on the property had her baby during our stay, which was cool. She's not super friendly, But will eat from your hand.
The host was very nice, however not always available. I had texted that I would be there in 45 minutes. 30 minutes later he responded to my text. When I arrived 15 min later he did not answer the multiple knocks and ringing of the doorbell or text messages. He finally came out after about 10 min. He had fallen asleep.
On a second occasion I asked if he could guide me in backing out of the spot so I can go dump my tanks. He agreed and went inside to eat lunch. About 30 to 40 minutes later when I tried to get in touch with them via text and ringing the bell and knocking on the door there was no response. I somehow managed to get out of there on my own after many many tries. Later he again said he fell asleep. Michael did bring me back to meet his horse and the newborn foal. Again, Michael was very nice, but I was just a little annoyed by his absence on those two occasions. Otherwise kept to myself and rarely interacted w/ the occupants of the house.

Response from Michael, the Host, on June 4th, 2021

The maximum size or your truck and rig CLEARLY exceeded what I posted in the description. As for "falling asleep" it would be more accurate to say I blacked out in my chair. I have sleep apnea issues which cause some amount of narcolepsy. This is a medical issue that I sometimes cannot control. As for traffic, the speed limit has gone up dramatically since I first moved here. I can't pave closer to the house until I can find the exact location of my septic tank so I don't accidentally pave over it. That was the only spot I could do at the time. It was sort of a spur of the moment offer for discount work after a local business canceled and I had to make a quick decision about where I could put it.

Stayed when traveling through the area. Nice grass lawn parking. Didn’t have time to use it but site includes a cute little fire pit. Michael was a friendly host who has some tips about visiting San Antonio which I’ll definitely use if I visit the area again. There was an issue with the description online but Michael messages that he has already fixed it. Good luck with this and any future endeavor, Michael!

We were driving through from CO to FL in our teardrop camper, with a stop to check out San Antonio on the way down. Great spot to stop and sleep for the night. Michael was a great host.

Was exactly what I needed for the night. A convenient, bathroom on-site and affordable spot to park my van and sleep for the night. Super basic but it did the trick.

Perfect pitstop

This site is a great quick stopover and the host was kind and helpful. The main thing to be aware of is that there is a bit of road noise, so if you are a light sleeper earplugs are probably a good idea. The bathroom was clean and you can use the washing machine if you bring detergent.
