We had a very positive experience during our stay at Travis FamCamp. The back-in sites (there are no pull-thru sites) are gravel and level. There are concrete patios with picnic tables. The hookups are good and the staff were helpful and friendly. You can walk to the nice commissary and Exchange. There is a very nice fitness facility and library less than a mile away. While there is no recycling at the FamCamp, there is full recycling available at the Express (where you can also fill up with diesel). This is a good location for accessing Sacramento (1 hour east), Napa Valley (45 minutes west), and San Francisco (1 hour west). The only negatives to this FamCamp are the mediocre pay WiFi (expensive and slow), the below average Verizon data connections, and the fact that the wind blows virtually non-stop. During our one-month stay, I only had our awning out for two brief periods of time. The average wind speed was at least 10-15 mph and gusts were often in the 25-35 mph range. That makes for some chilly nights when the delta breeze blows in from the Pacific.

Had another nice stay at Travis Famcamp, this time in site 71 in the “new” section. Things don’t change much here and the rules, although still in place, aren’t rigidly enforced nearly as much as in the past. We had a reservation so check-in was a breeze. The hedges between the sites have grown up so the parking space seems a little narrower. Get ready for reveille at 0700. Really? The park is not watering the grass as much anymore due directly to the drought in California. On 12 June 2015 until 14 August 2016, Peabody Road (from Vacaville to Air Base Parkway) will be closed at Vanden Rd and Huntington Drive to facilitate building the new overpass and train station. This closer may be extended further down Peabody if necessary. If you are coming here on I-80 westbound, I would recommend staying on the interstate and get off on Air Base Parkway in Fairfield and then take that out to the base.

V.O. left this review using the Directory software: - WOW - What a disappointment. Manager, Corina, accommodated our visit (without reservation) and gave us 50amp Site 12 (pet friendly). The site is under a huge eucalypstis (sp) tree that causes big mess. Our site was not prep'd for our arrival (patio/table dirty and unkempt). The park overall is horrible - except for the area set aside for "non-pets". That area still has grass and shade trees. So, what's up with the apparent punishment for folks with pets? Laundry at park still being repaired.

I would stay here again because who can argue with $20/night in Cali?!? We stayed in 40' 5th-wheel. We were here to visit San Fran Bay Area and Napa. Yes, the wind was an issue half the time we were there. Would've been nice to open door more often since the temperatures were great, but it sounded like the door would come off the hinges. (This wasn't the first place we stayed with heavy winds, so not a show stopper. We didn't have a choice of site so we took what we got.) The location is right inside the base gate and a block away from the exchange, gas, and commissary. There's an RV wash right next door too. Free wi-fi for 24 hrs after you log-in. The downside? Rules, rules, rules; do's and don'ts posted every where. Just seems someone needs to relax a little. There's 3 washers and driers, but only two washers were working when we got there and only one washer was working the last week we were there. Apparently the plumbing cannot support 3 washers so they can't have 3 working at the same time anyway. Washer $1.75/Drier $.75 Office is only open til 1300, Mon-Sat. If you have a pet, you'll notice the pet section lacks the green grass that the non-pet section has. There's a large area to walk a dog and there's also a dog park on base just down the street. And finally, LOL, not sure where the PA speaker is, but you won't miss reveille or taps. :)

Used this location to visit SF area including Napa Valley. Good experience, only recommend that you ask for a site that your RV entrance faces the office. Reason for this, this area is located in what is called the Delta Breeze. ALWAYS windy, I don't think we ever saw it below 11 mph, it becomes nerve racking after a while. While there a young couple that had just transferred there had there RV moved because of the wind constantly blowing in the entrance side of the RV. Everything else is great.

I'm writing this review during my third summer of visiting TAFB Famcamp. The low rating I am giving it here has nothing to do with Corina, her husband Jim, or their assistant, Caitlin, all of whom work hard and clearly under-supported by the Force Support Squadron commander. It's VERY obvious the Famcamp has become a low priority to the FSS leadership. Where do I begin? Look left, look right, the golf course, the adjacent ball park, the duck pond park at the North Gate...all green grass and landscaping. The Famcamp? The grass is so brown it's a fire hazard and the trees are quite literally dying. And....the managers have repeatedly told the FSS commander about the problems they're having...to no avail. If you're reading this website, Lt. Col. John P. Cappella Zielinski and/or Brian Floyd, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Those of us in this community of military retiree RVers know full well that the revenue we bring to your base is substantial, and we come in record numbers because of the other base attractions. But it's abundantly obvious that you do not value our presence on your installation. I think it's fair to say that neither one of you has your eye on the ball. If you did, the launderette next to the BX coffee shop, also under your prevue, would not look so disgustingly dirty that you'd think you were in an urban bus station. Trash everywhere, trash bins spilling over, trash blowing around outside, bathroom nearly unusable, folding tables unclean and unusable. What are you thinking? Forget the 5 hours I wasted trying to use the supposed cable service at my site post only to find that the connection was not turned on at the post by Comcast. Forget that they literally did not tell anyone in camp until the day before that road crews were going to lock them into the campground for TWO days and also never proactively or accurately communicated this hazard to the Main Gate guards so that they could redirect traffic effectively. Here's the most shameful failing of this Famcamp: The entire state of California prides itself on being green...recycling, solar power, you name it. Does TAFB Famcamp bother to provide recycling bins, such a simple thing, to RV campers? NO! Unbelievably embarrassing to the TAFB FSS CC. If you think recycling costs you too much, try drawing NO retirees or campers to your Famcamp because they refuse to live in filth. I met friends here this year for the third summer in a row. Guess what? We're not coming back unless you fix this. Where is your appreciation for the veterans who visit your Famcamp? Where are your priorities?
Even though we haven't stayed at this FamCamp (I've been through the camp on more than one occasion while at Travis on business), I'm giving high marks for Location, Facilities and Value but I'm giving low marks for Hospitality and Overall Experience. I feel that I'm being generous with the 2's as I was lied to by the MWR manager about their pet policies. Yes they do allow pets, but ONLY if you have 1 or 2. That can be any combination, 2 dogs, 1 cat/1 dog, etc as long as they total 2. When I questioned the policy (as we've stayed in numerous military campgrounds around the country with 4 small dogs with no issues), I was told the policy had been set by the base command, and it included family housing, and that they couldn't deviate from that policy, I was content to accept it; however, I still have contact with several individuals that work on base and asked if they knew anything about this policy. Well, lo and behold, I've found out that the base command does not restrict the number of pets that are brought to the FamCamp or to family housing, that policy has been set by the MWR manager; to top it off, she selectively chooses which rules she enforces and when. It's common courtesy to clean up after your pets, but that isn't always enforced, even when the staff sees your dog poop and you walk away from it. As a result, I will not be staying at this camp any time soon!

Had another good stay here at Travis. This time we were parked on the first row in site #4, a very noisy site due to being very close to the main gate. There is a lot of vehicle noise all day and night. Why in the world does this base play Reveille at 7AM? Yes, there are a lot of rules but we have been coming here for so long now we’re used to them. Don’t park your rig hanging over the the grass! Forget the WiFi! It’s a waste of money after the first day of free service. We just used our Verizon service. Outstanding management. Restrooms and showers were spotless. Used our AF Frequent Camper certificate and got one night free so our 5 day stay was $16 a night.

This is my second time here. My first time was only one night. Does that count? I am very happy with the park. The spaces for the very large rigs are really not big enough. Parking is very tight. No pull thru's. I had to let my rear end over hand over the grass. That is against the rules. Hard to mow the lawn. They have a big rig wash within spitting distance from the park. BX, commissary and class six store in really within walking distance. They have long term parking for 3 months minimum. $45.00 per month. Short term by the air terminal for 30 days or less FREE. Both my wife and I had no problem getting an appointment with internal medicine at David Grant while we were here. Management lives on site with two other hosts. All very nice!
