 VON ORMY– Alamo River Resort in Von Ormy celebrated Halloween with a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of their new custom entryway. 
     Dressed in costume, as mustard and ketchup, owners Charlie and Roxanne Brown, greeted residents and visitors with a pot luck dinner and costume party. A haunted hayride down on the river bottom rounded out the days events. 
     Alamo River’s campground and RV park has gown rapidly since their most recent expansion in 2011.  Demand for temporary housing from  Eagle Ford Shale development and Lackland AFB have been the biggest draws.  Any why not?  Locals have known for years what great fishing and campgrounds the Medina River provides.
    Alamo River Resort was once a crossing of the Spanish Camino Real due to its gentle  sloping access to the River.
     Today its located on a still breathtaking stretch of the Medina River off of Trawalter Lane, Alamo River Resort has over 3/4 of a mile of river frontage to fish, hike or just enjoy the quiet beauty of this historic 96-acre working ranch. They have miles of wooded trails for hiking, mountain biking, horse back riding, and abundant wildlife to see.  They also have Guided Horse Trail Rides -- this includes Horse Rental all Tack and a Trail Master to guide riders.
     In addition to its campsite, Alamo River has over 45 RV spots available.  And for those without an RV, they have onsite cabins for rental.
