July 11th and 12th 2012
Are you kidding me? After many years and mega-miles of travel and visiting our wonderful military bases and famcamps, I am appalled at what I found at the Malmstrom AFB Famcamp annex. There has been no updates to this place in a long, long time. There is nothing but weeds everywhere (although I will admit that the camp host Don and his very helpful wife are doing their damn-est). The people or person in charge of the Outdoor Recreation decided to increase the price to $20 per night without any visible justification. Why - well I suppose that it is just because they can. Poor Mike the maintenance man works very hard, but it is too evident that he just doesn't have the experience, knowledge or support to keep up. The cotton pickin stickers and fox-tails just made it miserable for my pets. 'Cousin Brucie' who thinks that he secretly controls everything, is actually not concerned at all, but rather seems to want to prove the ineptness of the current hosts.

Beale is the place to be is you are looking for peace and quiet. The layout is somewhat unique, although I have seen it before, and provides lots of room between the sites, plenty of green grass an shade. My wife and I have been here several times, and use it as a base when visiting our kids in Marysville. The Commissary and Exchange are pretty much like everywhere else, not really offering very much savings, but Wal-Mart is right down the road. I have spent some time with Rex - the camp manager - and believe me when I tell you that he is excited about the good things that are happening and planned for this facility, e.g. new cement pads for the picnic tables, new 50amp service in the one circle that currently doesn't have it, monthly get-togethers, etc. The mice have been a little bit of a problem this time because there were goats introduced next to the camp for fire control, and they seemed to have driven all the mice into the camp. However, base personnel have been tending to the problem, and my two yorkies have killed about three dozen over the past month. Bottom line... Beale FamCamp is a great place that is frequented by great people.
Well maintained and clean! Cost for stay is more than it should be. Restaurant on site, apparently open to public, but I dont know for sure. Not close to any attractions other than Indian Reservations and Olympic Rain Forest. This is good spot to stay while visiting Olympic Peninsula.

Good place to use as home base for seeing Seattle, Mount Ranier, and other local attractions. RV Camp is a bit pricey, and there is a charge for fishing in the lake. Sites are clean and well maintained, with many of them located adjacent to the lake. Not a place where I would want to vacation, but really okay for the traveler who is only going to be here a couple of days.

Beautiful park! The long-term RVers are for the most part a thing of the past. I only saw one left. 20 RV hookup sites with wonderful ocean view for $8. per nite. RV Dump Station on site. Clean comfortable and quiet. The camp host is intent on making your stay pleasant, and taking care of the camp. He has made "Earth Totums" from flip flops found on the beach over a two year period, as well as several from fishing floats. Really quite interesting. NAS Whidby is only a couple of miles away with all the amenities you might expect.

We first checked in at San Onofre and was so disappointed, but after inquiries we moved up to the lake and had a really nice space overlooking the lake. The spaces which overlook the lake have only water and electric, but that is okay as the view makes it worth it. The fishing was lousy for us, but we did see some others who had landed fish. The full hook up spots are in a shaded meadow and a very short walk to the lake. We really enjoyed ourselves, and definately plan on returning, despite what we believe are excessive charges.
