As a first-time user, I found the Travis Fam Camp RV Park to be one of the best-kept secrets/values around for RVers. If the 60th Services Squadron were to give it some additional support, there would be more 5-star reviews. Location is right off of the Main Gate and within easy walking distance of AAFES facilities (BX, Food Court, Commissary, Banks), including a Car/RV Wash just outside the grounds. Check-in was painless and worry-free as a "first-come, first-serve" basis (30 day advance registrations are accepted), with helpful guides and brochures of local tourist areas readily available. The "rules of the park" (Travis Fam Camp Guidelines) are clearly spelled out -- although the tri-fold is dated and in need of reprinting, since many "pen & ink" corrections have been made throughout the brochure. Facilities are adequate (Laundry/Restrooms open 24hrs) for the number of available spaces served -- 72 RV spots, divided between Full Hook-up, No Pets and Full Hook-up, Pets allowed in spaces 8-17 and 25-48 with TV cable available. There are also four dry camp and four tent camping spots available. However, in this day and age of the internet, to not offer basic WiFi service within the park grounds is a major drawback for tech-savy RVers. For those who need to get their daily "fix" of e-mail or web-surfing, you'll be well-advised to have 3G or 4G service. Otherwise, it's necessary to walk to the local Starbucks coffee outlet in the BX with your laptop or netbook. The grounds themselves, while well maintained, could use additional planting of shade trees and low shrubbery in outlying spaces 25-48. This would provide for some privacy between RVers and serve as a wind break for the well-known Delta Breeze. Based on first impressions, this serves as a very good baseline to judge all others against. I'm anxious to compare this place to the Fam Camp at the Coast Guard Station in Petaluma, as well as the Fam Camps (three available) at Vandenberg AFB.
