Tried to visit, and found that this place has been closed for many years. This listing needs to be removed. Article in San Antonio, TX newspaper showed pictures of how Alamo Village is closed and is falling apart.

We heard the place was closed, but we went to look anyway. Yep, closed up a while back. It's on the way to Kackapoo Caverns State Park, which was awesome, remote and beautiful.

Fort is closed at this time but I know they do tours from time to time. I also heard that someone from Houston was wanting to buy it and open it up. Hope they do.
