Great campground in a great location! The staff is awesome and we really enjoyed our two weeks there. The sites are very easy to get into with no issues and a good amount of space between you and your neighbor. Location is excellent with a ton of activities in the Tucson area including Saguaro National Park, Titan missile museum, Pima air and space museum, Tombstone, Bisbee, etc. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the base is in great shape with a nice PX, Comissary and Golf Course. All in All just a fantastic campground, the only improvements I recommend are, a playground in the campground would be nice and fix the WiFi.
Great campground in a great location, you of course can't beat camping on the beach for 30 a night! It is easy to get to once you get thru the LA traffic. The post is very nice but small, if you need something specific head up the road to Point Hueneme which has everything. As for the beach, it is very nice and clean, water was very cold but the best part is it might as well have been Sea World, everyday we saw dolphins, birds, and seals within 30 feet of the shore. Activities near by are pretty good, the President Reagan Library is within 40 minutes in Simi Valley and is a must see (free to active duty military), Santa Monica NRA is right there and provides tons of hiking opportunities, and the golf course on Point Hueneme is very nice. On the campground the bath and laundry facilities were clean and nice, fire rings are provided, connections including cable all worked perfectly, the only down side is some of the spots especially the ones closest to the beach are a little short making it hard to back in a long camper but not impossible. We will certainly return as this is a very nice campground and well ran.
You cannot beat the location if you plan on exploring San Diego, very close to the football stadium, 15 minutes from Sea World, the Zoo, Lego Land, etc... Getting into the campground is not bad at all, right off the interstate and the hill is not too bad as long as you are not pulling a trailer too big for your truck. Hospitality and check in could use some work, office closes at 5 and they hardly answer the phone when they are open. The night host who is supposed to take over at 5 was not there so we had to wait for a while in order to check in. The spots are close together but not bad; just be friendly. We have children so being backed up against a nice playground was great, also in the park is a very nice pool which is heated and has a water slide, it is $2 for adults if you are active duty dependent, active duty and children 10 and under are free. The golf course is great with two 18 hole courses, GPS enabled carts, and a nice clubhouse. Our price was $40 for 18 holes with cart and a bucket of balls on the range. All in all, if you want a full hookup campground in the middle of everything in San Diego you can't beat this campground location especially if you are a golfer. If the campground would put some more effort into hospitality then they would be top notch.

We came here primarily to visit San Francisco and the surrounding area and the campground served that purpose well. Only downside is you are pretty far outside of San Francisco so if you want to make daily trips it takes some time and planning. The best way is to go to the BART station in Pittsburg or one of the other ones near by, the station is about 40 minutes from the campground, it is a 50 minute train ride to Embarcadero station which is the closest to the waterfront, the trip is $11.90 round trip for an adult. Napa Valley is very close (30 minutes). The campground itself is the simplest to find of any I have ever been to, it is right next to the main gate; go right through the main gate, make your first right and then another right and you are there. The office keeps very limited hours but will leave you information for check in if you miss them. Bring leveling blocks because most of the spots are on a slight hill, spots are spacious and well maintained with nice landscaping and hookups. The campground doesn't have much of a "community" like we have seen at other campgrounds, there are no scheduled activities, central fire pit, day room, etc. all in all though it is very clean and nice; it is certainly worth staying at if you are in the area.

This campground is suited for just what we used it for, waiting for housing. Electric only with unlevel sites and lots of wind, iit is bare bones. You can fill up water and dump waste fairly close and you are on post just a mile or two from everything. The post has plenty of room and with a little effort and money could develop this into a phenomenal campground to support the post but doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. As far as visiting it is not close to anything and is about 35 miles from the interstate so unless you are reporting here for duty or visiting someone on post just stay in Barstow at the Calico Ghost Town if you are just passing thru on I-15. Just $10 a night.
This is one of the best military campgrounds we have stayed at, great sites which are all pull thru and paved and very large. The site is great with very nice and clean bath houses, there is also a great playground on site. The campground is in a remote area of the base which is nice and quiet except for the trains which are infrequent. They have fixed the flooding problem which is in the photos with a new bridge which goes well over the creek bed, only downside is the extreme amount of construction on the base...it is everywhere and makes getting around base a challenge. I can't imagine a better place to stay if you are visiting San Antonio.
Nice campground with two very different sides; the nice wooded side was full including the FEMA trailers mentioned before which were empty, I assume they are rentals for the airmen on post to use which is a nice program, this facility is here primarily for them but these trailers look like they have seen better days. The other side is very open with soft gravel and huge spots, they are very nice but the wind was HORRIBLE and there is nothing to block it if you stay on that side. The post is very nice and in a great location, there is a lot to offer within a short drive from the base so it is defiantly worth the visit. They don't take reservations but with so many sites on both sides I doubt it is ever completely full except maybe during the balloon festival. If you are coming this way it is well worth staying here especially for the price and central location.

This is our new favorite campground it really has everything except for a beach or access to the beach within walking distance which is why we gave the amenities/facilities a 4, but the air force beach is very close. The sites are a little tight but are paved and have everything but WiFi. The price is incredible for what you get, super clean and enough to do that you could never leave the resort and still be happy. We will be back when we return to the area, if you are staying in the area, you can't beat this place from what we saw, highly recommended.

This is our favorite campground, the views are the best, the hosts are great, all hookups work great except no WiFi. The location cannot be beat especially for families, there is so much to do and is close enough to Disney World for a visit there. The neighbors are great; everyone is friendly. The bath house has everything you need but could use a little attention especially to get rid of a carpenter bee infestation, the base is great and very clean and not very busy. We are headed west but will defiantly visit again when we are in the area.

One change to the directions, now when you enter the truck gate you just go straight to S Patrick Rd. No turns on west tech road anymore. This is a fantastic FAMCAMP, we really enjoyed ourselves and you cannot beat the location it is near everything. About 40 minutes from Kennedy Space Center and an hour and fifteen minutes to Disney or Sea world. Our campsite was about 10 feet from the banana river which made for fantastic scenery. The neighbors on the campsite and the staff are excellent and very friendly. It would be nice if you could do camp fires there and if there was more of a central clubhouse or something similar. I have read some comments about the firing range which is strangely in the middle of the campground but is for small caliber weapons and is not very loud my two and three year olds did not even notice. We will certainly be back, this is one of our favorites now.

This campground is great and getting better, there are improvements to the park ongoing so far not many at the campground itself but it is nice to see some effort going into the facilities around it. Nice, quiet and well laid out this campground is one of our favorites we just wish they had sewer hookups. Doc and Lori do a fantastic job!

The set up of the campground is probably the best we have stayed at so far. The sites are spread out so you are not on top of your neighbor and there is plenty of trees so you don't feel like you are in a parking lot like at other parks. The camp host is great and met us at check in and led us to our spot. Our spot was pretty unlevel and the fire pit was full of dirt which is fine but doesn't earn a 5 rating. The community center is nice and is maintained well by the community of campers. The snowbird community there is very nice and welcoming. The campground is conveniently located to I-75 and to Wild Adventures (amusement park/zoo). Only complaints are the lake is still down due to the Dam break but has been fixed and will hopefully be full of water soon; also we were told reservations are not accepted but when we arrived we were told that they are holding some sites (the nice ones) for snowbirds...so no reservations unless you are a regular. Other than that small stuff it is a very very nice campground with a nice staff and community and we plan to return when we can.

What a great place! We spent four days here with our two little boys in a travel trailer. The welcome packet we received was second to none with every tid bit of information you could ever need. The lake at the campground is beautiful and very large with a trail on both sides, just don't make the mistake I did and think you can jog all the way around because you can't. The community center and shower/bath facilities are excellent and they schedule activities almost daily, we enjoyed the ice cream social on our first night. The base has everything you would need, the NEX is small but has all of the basics and the commissary is the same. Kings Bay is very close to St Marys, Jacksonville, Jekyll Island, St Simon Island and Amelia Island so plenty to do near by, also Crooked River State Park is right next to the base and is one of the better state parks in Georgia. I would recommend Eagle Hammock to everyone as it is the best one we have visited thus far, the people make the place great!
Dock and Lori made for a great experience, this was our first time using our travel trailer and the location was perfect along with the camp hosts. The campground is nice and quiet and has plenty of places to play for our two little boys, we will return soon!
