C.S. left this review using the Directory software: - New campground, very nice, Kenny, the campground manager was very helpful. I have visited many famcamps, this is one of the best. Management is the best.

L.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Previous reviews say it all. An unused Gem. The RV park is close to the exchange and commissary and the base has a lot of the amenities of a full size installation. And it's all new. You're a distance from downtown NO, but check with Kenny (all that is written is true) and he'll direct you to the ferry. Parking is $5 weekdays, $10 weekends and the ride is free. You exit downtown, approx 4 blocks from Bourbon St. WiFi was up, but iffy. Problem has been identified (additional antenna required) and correction is in the works.

R.D. left this review using the Directory software: - We stayed during Hurricane Sandy, and things were uninterrupted. Close to Colonial Williamsburg, and local attractions. WiFi is available at the 4th street grill, and also at the Navy Gateway Lodge. Everyone was very helpful during our stay. Previous comment incorrect, sites 44, and 49 are level on "B" street. Fuel was available at the Navex 24-7.

R.P. left this review using the Directory software: - Called the day before my arrival and was very surprised that the phone was answered. Lady on other end was very pleasant. When asked if space was available I was told yes. Full hookup was available for $23. Upon arrival gate guard was very professional and opened the delivery gate for us once my wife and my ID were checked. You check into billeting, pay, and then they assign you a space. When I went to the site. it was clean, and there was just one other 5th wheel there on full hookup. Two others were on the dry camping spots. Bathrooms are very clean (women and mens), two showers in each (one to accommodate physically challenged). Hookups at site all worked fine. A little noise from the street (about 100 yds away). If you don't have sat tv, you can get a few channels using your RV antenna. PX is open Weds, Thurs, Fri. Has essentials. What makes this location ok is that it is in the center, between Pismo Beach (12 miles), and Morro Bay (10 miles). There is no ocean or pools at this location so if you want the beach, you must drive to a beach front location. It is a good landing point for the two beach cities.

J.H. left this review using the Directory software: - First FamCamp we have been at, where we could not get a drive through site. We had been at this Camp a week earlier and had not been able to get a drive through, even though we requested one. Did not really understand why, since there were several pull through sites empty the whole week we were there. Anyway, we left Offutt to head to WI, but had to come back, since my mother-in-law had a heart-attack and was at a local hospital. We were driving all night and I called the FamCamp office and explained the situation and requested a pull through, so we could get right to the hospital. I had a tough time backing in a week earlier, because I'm new at RVing and found the angles and pad width made it very difficult to back in. Well, when I arrived I did not get a pull through as requested. It took me at least 20 minutes to back into the spot, Later, I went back to the office and asked the two office workers why I had not gotten the pull through when there were at least 4 open pull through spots. They said they asked the camp host and was told to put us into a back-in spot. When I told them I was not too happy about not getting the pull through, they showed me a camp map with the the spots on and a placement listing showing size of rig and was told that only over nighters or someone staying the weekend get the pull through spots. Later, the camp host confirmed this system and went on to say that it works good for the base people who come over on the weekends, since they do not have that much experience backing. She also said this kept the traffic congestion down, since the people who were only there for a day or two did not have to block traffic by backing in. I watched large rigs having to back in to these small width pads, while pull through sites were empty. We were there for six weeks and I never saw all the pull through pads full. The last week were there it was getting cold and not too many rigs were there, but they were still making large rigs back in, while they had many open pull throughs. Did not make any sense to me. There are several signs saying that you cannot park on the grass, so you had better not or the camp Host will be right there ask that you move. Many of the spots have room for your rig, truck and a car, because the grass has worn down. My sister came to visit and parked in front or our rig and was on the gravel/grass mix area and the camp host showed up and requested that she move her car. So, if you have grass coming up through the gravel, you had better not park on it. The only place for visitors to park are at the office area, which is about two blocks from the northern end of the camp. The camp is clean, grass is cut on a regular basis. Trash containers numerous which, is nice. I've read someone had complained about being next to railroad tracks. Well the trains have about three crossing to go through within a few miles of the camp so you do hear lots of horn blowing, but it's off in the distance and you get used to it. Never really bothered me. The camp was very quiet. Right next to large lake. It it was not for the bad exp. with the pull through situation I would be giving this camp high marks. I did have a chance to speak to the director (cannot remember her name) and we had a very nice chat. She said that in 2014 they are going to turn the east side row all into pull throughs, so that will really help. She said they could be more flexible with the pull throughs on a case by case situation, especially in the off season. They turn the water off on Oct.15, but she said they keep the roads plowed and open all year long. Word of caution, the RR crossing does not have lights or gates, so make sure you stop and look both ways prior to crossing. Seems like the base could pull some strings and get a safer crossing sign there. At least flashing lights. I grew up in a small town that had a similar crossing and we lost two people who were talking and drove right in front of a train at the crossing-even though the train was blowing its horn. I'm afraid it is just a matter of time before someone gets hurt at that crossing--so be careful. Last year the camp was closed because of flooding, but the only damage I could see was the water rose up on the lake and killed a lot of trees. Could not see any other damage in the camp area.

S.B. left this review using the Directory software: - This campground is well maintained, even has a crew of 2-3 people that run around doing landscaping, cleanup, etc. The office folks are also friendly, even offering a choice of site if more than 1 available. The only downside is that about 95% of the sites are taken by active duty people who live there full time. The result is that about 4 sites were open the day we arrived, but 3 of those were in an undesirable location, i.e. all in the first row next to a very busy limited access highway with big rigs and trucks on it 24/7 @ 60 or more mph. Our site was 18 and i was able to pick up the cg wifi from inside the rv and a long distance from the building that has the wifi.

S.B. left this review using the Directory software: - we came here for the Balloon Fiesta; if you get here around the end of September, the facility may be full. We arrived Tuesday, 25 Sep and there was many spaces available. But by Saturday, 29 Sep it will probably be full. We have stayed here before and little has been done to improve the cg. Many trees are either blocking or restricting entry on a site. There appears to be no cleanup or landscaping crew at all. This comment refers to the original cg not the new sites which have no trees. The office manager Janet is helpful and good at her job, but all that entails is answering the phone and registering campers. There are a few active duty people, not many that i see.

F.D. left this review using the Directory software: - Concur with all previous comments. Excellent FamCamp.
T.M. left this review using the Directory software: - I agree with all the other comments but the laundry room and shower were dirty. The pull through sites are very small, they have it set up for 2 campers to face each other no privacy, seemed to have some homesteaders too. Saw new picnic tables at all the sites even though the existing tables were ok, seemed to be a waste of money that could have gone to fix the roads or upgrade other things. Host was nice.
T.M. left this review using the Directory software: - While I agree with the other comments especially their lack of organization, it is a nice camp, large sites and free washers & dryers make up for extra cost of site. Try and fine a campground around Denver as nice as Buckley for the money.

T.M. left this review using the Directory software: - While all the comments below are correct & this is a nice camp, there seem to be a few homesteaders here. The camp host is strict about no dogs tied up on site, must walk dogs in designated areas, but saw several people who ignored the rules. Was a no washing of vehicles rule but saw at least one camper washing their car. Over all it is a nice camp, close to all historical sites, close to the train, large sites, good laundry, close to the base etc but the campers who ignore the rules make it just a average campground. If you plan on taking Boston trolley tour & need handicap access do not buy Old Town Trolley tickets at famcamp, use City View Trolley, the silver trolley, it is less expensive, all trolleys have a lift and you can go to all the sites, Old Town does not.

J.P. left this review using the Directory Software: - Manager Eric is very helpful and pleasant. He is operating with limited resources and works hard to keep the facility operating. The place was full, or nearly so, the whole time we were there. Water pressure is low, but sufficient. We will return.
