The best thing about EAFB's Famcamp is its proximity to the AF Flight Test Museum, where you can learn about the amazing history of this base and its mission. I went there 3 times during my short visit; it's just that fascinating. The second best thing is the pool, which is within walking distance of your RV. The BX and Commissary are also just around the corner. Andy, the site host, is available on weekends and by phone if you need anything, too. He was very friendly and helpful when we met. I think the photos provided on this site are outdated and ought to be replaced. I should have done that myself but didn't think of it, sorry! In any case, half the sites are so close together as to be horrid (I had a guy next door with 2 barking puppies and bad loud music that I had to say something about), while those that are nicely spaced are (it seems) permanently occupied. It was frustrating and one of the reasons I chose to leave a day and a half early. But...I am definitely going back. I really wanted to see more of the test flights (seeing the F22 was just awesome!), but the entire F35 fleet was grounded due to a tail fire on one at Eglin while I was there. I'll be passing through on my way back to Tucson, though, and look forward to a) seeing a JSF sortie, and b) finding a primo spot by sheer miracle! ;o)

We enjoyed our stay at the Edwards AFB FamCamp. We stayed in space 21 in our travel trailer. Is was quiet and had a good time here. We and our little dog liked to walk the bike/walking paths around the Base. The Restrooms/Showers are very clean. The Recreation room is clean and has exercise equipment, and a Dish satellite TV. We definitely plan to staying here again in the future.

We stayed here on Feb 4th thru the 11th. If you have a large class A with the sewer hookups behind the back tire you will need a long sewer hose because the elec, water, sewer are in the middle of the space.(space 1 thru 20) The site are close together so if you have a slide and the rig next to you also does they are very close together. The best sites are 21 thru 25 because you have nobody close to you and all the services are in the rear. We stay at a few Famcamps and I noticed the food prices in the commissary and all the fast-food prices are a lot higher than at other famcamps. If you don't mind the wind this a great place to stay for a few days. I think they need more lights at night because if you come in after dark it's very hard to see were to park. Because there are no lights at the RV spots. I went out and helped a couple rigs park. After they drove around a couple of times.

We've stayed here before, on our way to Arizona/New Mexico, etc. Pleasant surroundings, quiet. Some interesting things to explore in the area (Borax Mine, 20 Mule Team Museum, etc.) This time, we took a day to drive to NAWS China Lake in Ridgecrest. When I logged on to enter this, I saw the article that China Lake has a FamCamp that opened shortly after we had been there. China Lake has a very nice Naval Museum of Armament and Technology, with impressive displays and history on, among other things, the Sidewinder missile.

Spent a couple nights here and enjoyed our visit. They've made some improvements since our last visit - they've added gravel (rocks), removed most of the weeds, and have planted numerous trees with irrigation. Well done! While the showers/restrooms were mostly clean, they are showing their age and are worn. Even though they recently raised the nightly rates, it's still a good bargain. WiFi worked for us. We enjoyed our visit and will return again.

We stayed here for four nights - 20 - 23 June 2013. There are no reservations but checkin is easy and hassle free and the sign in board. The WiFi was down almost every day we were there but my MiFi worked well. We had a well shaded space with full hookups for only $15.00 per night. I walked to the BX, Commissary or Burger King every day. The new gas station next door will be open by mid July. Shower and restroom was fairly clean. I was stationed here in 1983 when they towed the B52D to the nearby museum. It was painted using Sears Weatherbeater paint and mops.

We have stayed at Edwards several times and have always enjoyed our visit. This review will provide you with a couple of updates. Verizon Wireless completed the upgrade to 4G LTE service on the base and now our Jetpack MiFI screams. Here in the Famcamp we are getting five bars of solid 4G service. AAFES is building a new gas station directly behind the famcamp and by the looks of the progress, we should see that completed very soon. If you have an Air Force Frequent Camper book, you must go to the Outdoor Recreation Office to get that stamped. On Fitzgerald Ave go past the BX/Commissary complex, turn right at the next street and follow that around until you come to a strip mall on the left. The MWR office is the last office.

We usually stay here at least one night coming and going to/from Arizona. The park has never looked better; the center area is filled with rock and recently planted trees, and looks great. The Famcamp is easy to get to and is close to the commissary and BX. We like that there are no reservations, and that has never ever been a problem to find a place to park. Site 21 - the sewer is about 4" below the concrete surface so requires a donut to connect - don't remember that issue with other sites. Some sites are not terribly level. But all in all we happily stay here once or twice a year.

We stayed here one night enroute from Travis to Nellis. The location is perfect right off Hwy 58. Access onto base was easy, just showed ID's and the airman told us how to find the camp. It is a spartan little camp on a spartan little base, as she said as we left "Just be glad you don't have orders to stay here the next 4 years!" Nice clean shower/restroom facilities, a pleasant little day room set up with small library, TV, comfy chairs and a few books and games. The museum on base is a must-see! Great displays of the heyday of aerospace testing at Edwards. Typical static displays outside, but they have an SR71! Always like seeing that bird. The museum is just south of camp and within walking distance - just look for the buff! We also enjoyed seeing Lake Rosamund where it all happened back in the day. The base has a small but very nice BX complex and a commissary. Bowling alley, golf course and outdoor rec all within easy distance of camp. Propane at the gas station just a block from camp. There is also a very nice rest area a few miles east of the gate and I highly recommend venturing into the small town of Boron where you will find a couple more small museums. One on Air & Space and the other all about the 20 Mule Teams and early days of Boron. They are free, but we left a donation to help them keep it that way. The Borax Mine also has a museum, but we did not make it there this time. Definitely will stay there again, Edwards is a desert gem.

Location is very convenient if you are east or westbound on CA-58. We stopped here for two nights as we were leaving central California heading east to I-40. Very good directional signs from the gate lead you right to the campground. There were about eight spots available when we arrived, and we circled around and choose the one we could find that would provide a little afternoon shade. Self registration is very easy, but only cash or checks. Electrical voltage was a little low, just below 110, but adequate to run the AC without damaging it, and that was using the 50 amp outlet. The location is a short walking distance to the BX, Commissary, and Starbucks. Starbucks has very good WiFi. There is none at the campground. There is no cable TV and my antenna would pick up only two channels: one in Chinese, and the other was too stupid to watch. Very clean restrooms and laundry. We would stay here again.

J.H. left this review using the Directory software: - Stayed at Edwards for two 90 day periods, separated by two weeks. The 15 dollars a day for retired military is a real bargain. The Camp Host, Andy is a great guy who helped us out several times. When our cat got out and bit and scratched my wife, he and his wife were very helpful by giving us some needed bandages, gauze and ointment. Andy gave us some great advice about RVs and showing me how to properly secure my Harley. Located in a great spot. Within a few blocks to base facilities. Bowling Alley is about a block away. There is a swimming pool right next to the Famcamp. We never used it, but we saw others with kids going over there. They have a good size water slide and with the hot weather, it was getting used alot. Good golf course on the base. I know on Wed. there have a 20 dollar deal--18 holes, cart and lunch. The showers/bathroom were clean. Nice washing machines and dryers in laundry room. They have a day room with ice, microwave, TV and DVD player. A couple of exercise machines and also a small exchange book library. This was the first Famcamp that we have stayed out, so I just hope all of them are as nice as this one.

We arrived at the FAMCAMP not really knowing where to park. However, a gentleman who was driving around in a golf cart told us that we could choose any spot and then self-register. He also warned us that due to the extreme heat that they'd been having power problems and asked if we'd only use one air-conditioner. We did use the bowling alley which was very close as well as the BX and commissary. The last morning we stopped at Starbucks to use Wi-Fi. So overall the FAMCAMP was nice except the temps were too high!

We arrived at the FAMCAMP not really knowing where to park. However, a gentleman who was driving around in a golf cart told us that we could choose any spot and then self-register. He also warned us that due to the extreme heat that they'd been having power problems and asked if we'd only use one air-conditioner. We did use the bowling alley which was very close as well as the BX and commissary. The last morning we stopped at Starbucks to use Wi-Fi. So overall the FAMCAMP was nice except the temps were too high!

Very nice CG..this is our 3rd or 4th visit here and our longest...got caught in the 70mph winds last night..took down 4 power poles in Lancaster...NB- believe the high wind advisory and especially when it gets to a warning...we were lucky to get here in one piece...very slow driving! So we are hunkered down till Monday or Tues...it is a ghost town for the holiday...we found the Shoppette mentioned in previous review..from the end of the commissary, with the commissary front entrance to your right, turn right up the winding road..there is the Class VI, Subway, Pizza hut.. post office, and a plethora of little shops...more than in the BX/Commissary complex... We would return without a second thought...the concrete curbs comng in are not a real problem..they are only inches high!! We traveled in a 32 travel trailer. oh be prepared with extra hose lengths in case you are lucky to get a shady spot (we did!! ) --HU's are longer away in this spot as it is on a dead end road (space 1 and 2)... And only reason did not get 5 stars is a tad distant from town (30 miles)..not a real big deal..most folks are 1-2
nighters..again this was most full I have seen it in years... Rich and Stefanie

Spent the night here to get the season started and to warm up (we live on the coast). It was easy to find the RV camp, (watch out for the winding curbs going thu the base gates), no reservations needed, probably 1/2 full, easy pull thrus, FHU, not a lot of shade & little grass, lots of small trees planted that should help with the shade in the coming years, pet friendly. Both the well stocked commissary & exchange were within short walking distance as well as quite a few fast food venders. Note to self: Get Beer before getting set up. Neither the commissary nor the exchange sell beer. I walked a long hot/dry ways looking for the shoppette with its' promise of the cold ones needed to complete my camp out, no luck finding the elusive shoppette. I Finally ventured out again to the base gas station. I knew where it was. Still a bit of a walk but not as far as that unsuccessful shoppette venture. SCORE, and another hot walk back to the RV. The camp host came by for a friendly chat. Seamed be be a pretty nice guy. Was hot in the day and cooled off pretty well in the night. A nice fairly quiet camp out. At $15 a night, I'll certainly go back.

The weeds are gone! Another very nice stay. This is the first time we have seen this Famcamp completely full. We'll be back. Good power and water pressure.

The camp has nice, clean facilities. Laundry room with 3 washers/dryers; restroom with 2 showers. Multi-purpose room has books, games, area information. Visited the Air Force Flight Test Center Museum, which is well worth the visit. The Dryden Flight Research Facility only gives tours on certain days and advance reservations are required. Commissary and Exchange had good selection. Previous reviews had complained about weeds in the FamCamp, but we saw no evidence of this. We spent a total of 3 nights, but never encountered a camp host. However, the self-registration system works just fine. The $25 per night fee is a bit steep for the isolated location, but EAB worked well has a stopover point in our travels to/from Yuma, AZ. Nearby is the Rio Tinto Visitor Center (boron mine) and the 20 Mule Team and Aerospace Museum.

This is a great spot to spend a few days visiting the base itself. There isn't much else close by in the way of attractions. The host was very helpful and hospitable. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
