This is our second stay here and it was even better than before. There are lots of things to do in the area and what made this stay so great was the activities going on. They decorated the back part of the c/g and decorated for Halloween. They had a great carnival and hay rides that night. It was so much fun. The staff there are also great. New bathrooms/showers are great. Thanks. Will return.

This is a good campground. Our major complaint is that where there is no cable tv - there is NO tv. It is impossible to get a signal for tv with antenna. The phone service is poor as well. But these things have nothing to do with the c/g.

This FamCamp is a great place to stay. Can't say anything bad about it. OKC has a lot of things to see and do and this is a great place to stay while doing them. Nice grounds for walking and picnicking, fishing and enjoying the sunset. Hosts are topnotch!! We have truly enjoyed our stay here and will return.

We've enjoyed another stay here at Kirtland and will no doubt be back. It continues to be a good place to be. Albuquerque holds a lot of things to see and do at times other than the Balloon Festival.
April - May 2010
We stayed for 3 weeks here and cannot find anything bad to say about it. It's just a great place to be. We can't wait to go back again.

Great little FamCamp if you have to be in the area. Close to everything. If you want a quiet place to camp, it's great. Neat, clean and nicely run.

We enjoyed our stay at this FamCamp very much. The staff went overboard to be nice and helpful. We have never been met with such hospitality even though it was technically still winter when we got there. The showers were the cleanest we've ever seen. Can't imagine how anyone could complain about this place. We hated to leave but "they wouldn't let us live there". We left when they were getting ready for the summer season. Even though they were sawing and loading and bringing in gravel and spreading it, you could barely notice it. This is a top grade FamCamp and a value at any price.

We moved in today. We will be here for 30 days, so I'll comment again when we leave. We understand fully that it is still the winter season and there is no host - hence the 4 on hospitality. But so far we LOVE it. I mean it's in Colorado and at the USAFA no less. I hope we get to see everything the area has to offer in 30 days.
NOTE: The new rate of $20.00 per day begins on April 1, 2010 and there is no discount, weekly or monthly rate. I thought this was important. There is no one in the c/g office until May 1, you have to go to the recreation center for info or help.

We stayed in overflow 1 night then we stayed the rest of the time in the "new" gravel lot. We may have enjoyed the old site w/trees more, but I doubt it. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again.

You state: "Winter rates valid October through April". We were there and wanted to stay in October but the campground was closed Oct - Apr yearly. Has this changed?
We stopped over here for a much needed stocking up. This part of the country is not filled with Military camps. After we left Robins we stayed in GA State Parks then in the ACOE Campgrounds at Clemson SC Lake Hartwell and Lake Lanier in Gainesville GA, Lake Allatoona Cartersville GA, then Ragland Bottom at Center Lake TN. These places are great if you want a good place to stay cheap. If you have a NP Senior Pass the range from $7 - $12 per night. But only water and electric. Redstone has a great little base with a commissary & PX very close to the campground. The campground has sewer, water, electric & cable. A new laundry room with 4 w & 4 d, air conditioning. A new shower & restroom facility with is small but very nice and clean. There's the Space Camp that is very close to the Post that you can visit and Huntsville is a nice town. If you need to be in the area it's a good place to stay. If you're passing thru, it can't be much better. If you're coming from TN going south on HWY 231/431 you just keep on HWY 231 and it turns into Memorial Parkway which takes you straight to the Post.

Just in case you get stuck like we did I want to share this with you: After the fiasco at Points West, Appling, we went as directed to Fort Gordon. Once you enter the gate, whether it be Gate 1 or Gate 2, it is still a loonnng drive to the "campground". If you go to register first then you have quite a trip ahead of you. This Post is HUGE!! The MWR folks were honest and very nice so our complaint is not about them. And we are responsible for not researching more and being prepared for a busy holiday weekend, dumb on our part. The story is that this place will be closed on July 1, 2009 and will not re-open until the campground is totally redone. I will be watching this site to see if anyone knows if it closes or not. The big, beautiful log cabin type office is amazing. That is the only place any money has gone as far as the campground is concerned. Without going into the whole story of being stuck here for the entire Memorial Day weekend, I will leave you with - AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS until you know for sure that it has been cleaned up and renovated. As of this date it is not a good place to be. They have water and electric. There was a couple others there while we were there and they left before we did. There was a van down by the lake that looked like it had been there for quite some time. The other two vehicles there had been there for a long time as well. You can tell from the tall, tall weeds growing up around them.

We called and spoke with Ruth and she said they were full with the exception of a few sites with only electricity. She said that they do not take reservations that it was first come first served at all times. We were willing to go for that, after all it was a holiday weekend starting. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ruth and Larry and they were very helpful. They both told us they would check and see if there was a possibility of a site with full hook-ups available. We waited a few minutes and Ruth came out with the "good news". She said they had checked and there was one empty site with full h/u. We were happy. We paid for 5 nights, she fixed us up with a little plastic bag to hang on the pole at our assigned sight. We drove to it and found there was one already hanging on the pole. We just got out to unhook the car so that we could back the MoHo in when Larry drove up and told us that he had made a mistake and that someone was already checked into the sight, their "reservation" had already began. Slip of the tongue I'm sure. So we drove back to the office to get changed to a partial hook-up site. Ruth said she was so sorry. I told her that I understand how difficult it is to keep up with so many reservations. Both she and Larry came back with "we don't accept reservations". I said maybe that was the wrong word. If you pay in advance and hang your little plastic bag with the paperwork inside on the pole the site is yours, but it's not a reservation.
There were 5 sites not reserved when we arrived. Then Larry told us that he didn't think the site would be big enough for our rig. Sure enough it wasn't. They refunded our money and said "sorry". Larry called and checked on Leitner Lake on Post to see if they had any sites and they said yes and that they would hold one for us. For that review you'll have to look at the Leitner Lake site. Oh boy.
We spent one night only. Got in late the host was very accommodating even though they had no open sites helped us park on the grass and we spent the night and was on our way. Next time we'll make a reservation and plan to stay a while.
We enjoyed our stay here and it was a good experience. The campsite we had had a pole in front where we parked and everytime we pulled out it got hit. So we finally ties a flag to it to remind us that it was there. If you park there and there is a pole we highly recommend that you flag the pole for that reason. But you may not be as oblivious as we are. We stayed next to the Banana River and the only thing about that was that when the wind blows a certain way you can smell that horrible smell, whatever it is. Great place to stay very helpful staff. They have a lot of things available like ICE if you just ask. Can't wait to go back.
