We made a drive thru yesterday and ratings above based on that and info on this site. Very nice looking RV park wide pads but certainly not level. Wonder why they wouldn't have attempted to make them level when building. Another example of no input from RV'ers when designing. Lots of grass and certainly looks well kept. Very popular park, only noted one site that looked empty, but maybe it wasn't. We decided this is one we will NOT make an extra effort to stay at. No support facilities (commissary or exchange).
The Navy needs to do a little "truth in advertising". While the area has recently been upgraded and the parking areas are level and well constructed, many of the back-in spots were set up to require an approach from the vehicles right (blind) side. With a 5th wheel or travel trailer, backing into a right hand spot is about as much fun as a train wreck! The advertised dining facility/lounge (Bunker 33) has been closed for over a year. The golf course is miles away and there are no commissary or exchange facilities, other than the really small Mini-mart within a reasonable distance. So how can this facility be described as a "resort"? All it has to offer are full hookups. At $27 per day with no weekly or monthly rates it is grossly overpriced as are many of the Navy and Marine RV parks in Southern California. While WiFi is available, the going rates for the contractor connection only add to the rip-off. Don't think we will be back until Navy MWR managers have a reality check!
Our favorite place to stay in So. California. We have been using this facility since it opened; it is a beautiful setting and close to everything but....good luck trying to get through on the phone to get a reservation and if you do (warning!!!) ask for some sort of confirmation in WRITING. I cannot count the times we have been given a reservation, with a site number, and when we showed up, the spot was occupied. In addition, we have reserved a site in person, including site number, and when we showed up, again, the spot was filled. Another issue is that they allow large civilian groups (from the local area) into the facility and turn down active or retired military, saying that they are full (when in reality there are always open spaces due to their incompetence); that is a CRIME. All we can say is that is a first class facility run by people who have no idea how to run a campground. They should take lessons from Point Mugu or Admiral Baker, they know the meaning of customer service!
This is the 2nd year we have stayed here. It is so centrally located to all attractions, it's a great place for vacations to save a little cash compared to motel/hotels. They are a bit pricey, and we stayed here almost 2 full months and I have to say they maint. guys there are constantly doing things that don't need done! I think there are around 5 guys who work there. 2 spend most of their day in the laundry room watching TV and talking on their cellphones, another older man works so slow he would have to speed up to make a good stop! They mowed the ENTIRE grounds weekly (winter time) and would be lucky to get 1/2 bag if that of clippings as the grass grows so slow in the winter time. Makes you think that they could reduce the staff and maybe offer free wi-fi? We did use the wi-fi service offered, VERY EXPENSIVE though really good hi-speed. Will stay again.
