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!

This is a fairly small campground. Some of the sites are tight for a big rig. It is a great area with lots to do. A very nice base. As with a lot of FamCamps, no discount for extended stays. Wi-Fi is not free here but it does work well. The manager loves to micro-manage. After being corrected about how I parked, (I was 3 feet to far back) I moved up and was unable to park my toad where they allow you to. Because of that, I don’t consider this a big rig friendly park. She did say they had plans to revamp the park.

A well maintained RV park in a great location, with free cable TV and paid WiFi. It is right in the City of Fairfield with everything close by. As most others have mentioned it does have a lot of rules written down on paper and morning only office hours, but the showers, restroom, and laundry facilities are clean, and they offer free ice during the summer months. I usually stay at the Travis Famcamp about 3 to 4 months every year, because it is so conveniently located to the bay area, and there are many others who stay at this Famcamp 4 to 6 months every year. Having come here so frequently over the years I can say that the current managers are much better than the previous managers.

What is it about the Travis FamCamp that drives managers to micro-manage everybody and everything? The current manager started out as an amendable person, but the office is so full of signs and rules and warnings that one can hardly find a place to rest their eyes. The same goes for the mass of maps and instructions posted outside for those who arrive outside the limited office hours. And with so many rules and directions, it is a given that all are not enforced on across the board. Yes, there is a row for rigs with pets, but oh by the way it is okay to park in other sites too. One speeder gets chastised and the next six are not noticed. The park needs more management-by-walking around and less management by decree. The location is great and the park is well-maintained but it is not user-friendly!!

We stayed two nights at Travis AFB for $20 a pop. A decent place, but they have so many ridiculous rules I felt like I was back in bootcamp. They have RV spaces designated as "Pet spaces" and "non-pet spaces." If you have a pet you can only stay in a pet space. If you don't have a pet and the non-pet spaces are full but there are pet spaces available, a non-pet RVer can stay in a pet space, but NOT vice versa. So, pet owners are second class citizens at Travis. Also, the pet areas are STRICTLY ENFORCED (per the many, many signs) and if your dog steps on the grass then maybe the "pet police" will swoop down and issue you a citation. Okay, I'm joking, but only a little bit. Your RV CANNOT overhang the grass. You CANNOT have any items under or around your RV. Starting to get the idea? If you pay by personal check they want your full social security number on the registration form, the envelope that the form goes in, and the check itself. Are they insane? Why don't they just post it on the internet and make it even easier for identify thieves? They advertise free cable TV but to get it you must have a cable descrambler box which is not available on the weekends or after hours, so for us checking in on a Saturday we had no cable TV. They also advertise free wifi for the first 24 hours only. To get the wifi was complicated and when we got it it was extremely poor quality and tripped offline frequently. The bathrooms were superb. Lastly, at Travis you can camp for 180 days straight so there were a very large number of homesteaders living there. It gives the park a different feel, which we don't care for. Unlike virtually every other famcamp we found the residents to be standoffish and unfriendly to us, as if we were interlopers on their turf. Despite all that, we would stay there again for a night or two if we were traveling through.

Unlike virtually every other famcamp we found the residents to be standoffish and unfriendly to us, as if we were interlopers on their turf. Despite all that, we would stay there again for a night or two if we were traveling through.

Corina really runs a smart ship at Travis FamCamp. The tent spaces are on dirt mounds, so have a ground cloth ready. Otherwise, it was beautiful camping, except for the winds on one night. They weren't howling, but almost! The campground is clean and the bathhouse/showers are some of the best I've seen. The showers are spacious and especially nice! One word of caution: if you use the laundry, make sure you attend to your clothes 100%. I made a bathroom break and when I returned, some guy had removed my clothes from a washer so he could wash his! I know who did it, and he didn't seem to be too nice of a person in the first place. But, tend to your laundry, just the same, or get a family member, or somebody to watch it for you, if you need to take a bathroom break. Otherwise, our overall experience was a good one!

The campground is separated into Pet Friendly and No Pets. The No Pets area has beautiful green grass, whereas the Pet Friendly area needs more water and grass. Best shower experience I've had in 5 years. Shower stall was huge, lots of hooks to hang clothes and towels, and plenty of hot water. Our dogs loved the large area to walk them. Recycling bins is a plus, as most places don't have any.

** Directions to the FamCamp indicate you need to disconnect if you have a 40' or over rig. I disagree. At least during this time of year when the park is 1/2 full. We unhooked and it was an unnecessary stress finding a place along the roads that are not that wide from the freeway into the gate. If the problem is parking in from of the FamCamp office, recommend you pull through along the first row of RV's, then disconnect. For $20 it is hard to beat. Plus they have both a pets and 'no pets'. What a great idea. We don't have to listen to barking/yapping dogs. This place is nice. The newer area has lots of grass, hedge to divide us from the neighbor and is one of the better military parks we have stayed at. 4 years ago we heard of the micromanagement style of the previous camp hosts. Glad to say no such thing now. Very pleasant experience. We camped in a 40' motorhome and would stay here again.

Corina Standley and her staff are thorough, generous and kind, as others have said. The restrooms and laundry are kept nice and clean. I camped there in a tent last year and in a 28' Winnie this year, and each time I've not wanted to leave! I must say, though, whoever deemed the Delta Breeze a "breeze" doesn't know a whisper from a class 5 gale. While I was there in June (2013) everyone in camp was forced to batten down the hatches for about 3 days while a fierce "breeze" blew. Once it passed, we got our clear skies and sunshine again, though. No one has mentioned this but there's actually an RV car wash just behind the famcamp. You climb up stairs and the hose follows you around your rig; it's awesome. This area of CA is loads of fun too. SF and Berkeley are a mere 45 miles west. At the height of the season there's also a fantastic fruit and vegetable market just to the west of base about 15 minutes. Thanks Corina! You are a breath of fresh air!

Camp host, Karina, is very professional but personable. Office hours are a little short but adequate. Facility is very, very good but a little small. No pull-thru sites but then, it's not a KOA. Charges are reasonable. Check-in area a little small to remove toad but you have to as there's no room to do so anywhere else. BX and commissary are largest I've seen in many years. Watch your speed on this base. Fairly nice golf course (given the dry weather) located off the base just a few miles. Some rumblings on base regarding moving the FamCamp to another location but seems there's no money to make it happen.

T.P. left this review using the Directory software:- Came expecting to stay for a week stayed for 2 and a half. Staff was excellent although the office hours are short. Great base lots of things to do in the area the base is about halfway between Sacramento and San Francisco. The NEX gas station on right side of the road if you are coming from the camp ground is big rig friendly. The one on the left not so much.

I rated this camp high as the price was fair at $17.00 per night. I have been visiting Travis FamCamp for years, yes Toni was VERY obnoxious and it took some time to finally put him in his place. Eventually he left us alone, That said, the new management is doing a good job,I feel pretty bad not remembering the new Mrs.? who is running the office, however, she is very courteous, friendly & seems to have settled into the job well. That said, My only gripe is that I need to return and now on this site, I notice the price has gone up to $20.00 per night, adds up when you need to stay involuntarily for medical reasons and the like. After all, as a 100% disabled Veteran, the government wasn't very generous and my income is limited (Fixed), but it is what it is and I don't imagine I'm alone in feeling this way. So, for anyone planning to visit for the first time, enjoy, the location is as good as it gets, close to everything you will need both on & off base.

We stayed for about 4 months July through October 2012. It is definitely the end of the "Tony and Mary" era...as seen in other reviews they were the worst ever in any MWR camp.. anywhere!! For example, Tony said you could not use the post office unless you stayed 3 weeks; he also demanded you pay just for one week at a time even if you stayed for months...all this and more has been changed now with Karina and Jim (Jim is active, Karina runs the office) and both do a marvelous, gentle and fair camp management style... See the other reviews for facilities on base such as commissary, etc. However no one mentioned the fine library and gym within a short 15 minute walk down the road (.7 mile)...great machines and showers and then you can walk over to the library to peruse the news of the DoD and so on... The camp was well kept, clean and tidy...what was most welcome was the separate areas for travelers with dogs and those without...the separate areas allowed peace and quiet from those little yappers that seem to continually bark for no sane reason on earth.. Electric was out for a day 2-3 times but that was not any different than my brick and mortar home... We traveled in a 32 foot TT from North Trails and fit in most any sites in the tree/lawn area... N.B.-- the weather is Sac area can be a consistent 95 plus F...the a/c sometimes did not shut off for weeks in the day...but the delta breeze at night gave nice relief a lot of evenings...

This is a very nice camp. We stayed one month and enjoyed it the whole time. The Commissary / BX complex is right across the street with post office, Starbucks and the usual vendors, shoppette and library a couple blocks down. There is a nice free museum on base. The grounds are very well kept, hosts are friendly and helpful. Very nice showers/restrooms and laundry room all kept sparkling clean. The dog walk area is grassy and quite large, but some pet owners need to be more responsible about cleaning up after their dogs! A few lazy ones are going to ruin it for the rest of us who do pick up after our pets. There are jack rabbits everywhere, and prairie dogs by the dog walk - be prepared to get your arm yanked out of joint if your dog is a chaser. We had no problem getting 4G on a T-mobile wifi hotspot. Cable TV is available, but you must go to Comcast off base a few miles and get a free converter box. Then take it back upon leaving. Bit of a pain but for staying a month or more worth it - except when the Raiders game was blacked out. All in all one of the nicest places we've stayed and with family in the bay area a definite lay-over when snow-birding south.

This was our first stay and certainly will not be our last. The location was perfect for things we wanted to do in area such as visiting SF and missions. Campground, laundry, facilities very clean and staff most helpful and accommodating. We had to alter our reservation twice and no problem. Good dog walking area. Just wish owners were more diligent about cleaning up after their dogs. Rabbits are cute and fun to watch. Commissary etc very convenient. Thanks again to all who made this a nice stay.
