I guess I really don't understand the prior complaints about the manager. Yes there are rules, they are enforced, and to my way of thinking they are reasonable. It is hard to understand how some folks managed 20+ years in the military without having to accept rules and regulations. You will not find trash stored outside of RVs that appear not to have moved in months. You will not find even a few drivers moving through the place at unsafe speeds. Noise is not a problem. We found the manager to be helpful and responsive to our needs. We have stayed at dozens of military RV parks and The Travis facility is among the nicest. The sites are level and well designed. Restrooms and laundry facilities are clean. The facility is well landscaped and maintenance appears to be ongoing and a priority for MWR. It has been our experience that in the absence of well thought out and enforced rules, military RV parks quickly turn into dumps. This one is no dump!!

About as described by others. We got the last available pull-through spot. The back-spots are very narrow, but should allow for slide extension. The Lompoc Gate was under construction at the time of our arrival. The contract security folks were very helpful in helping us through. We recorded several GPS coordinates that may prove helpful. They are: 1. Main Gate. N34? 44.971' W 120? 31.353' 2. Lompoc Gate. N34? 42.400' W120? 30.148' 3. Solvang Gate. N34? 40.352' W120? 33.522' 4. Base Exchange. N34? 44.173' W120? 32.253' 5. Commissary. N34? 44.983' W120? 32.294' 6. Wall Beach. N34? 42.377' W120? 36.012' I am using the latest Garmin mapping software for my Street Pilot, but the GPS did have some problems with base roads, particularly enroute to Wall Beach. It worked fine routing us to other base facilities.

The Navy needs to do a little "truth in advertising". While the area has recently been upgraded and the parking areas are level and well constructed, many of the back-in spots were set up to require an approach from the vehicles right (blind) side. With a 5th wheel or travel trailer, backing into a right hand spot is about as much fun as a train wreck! The advertised dining facility/lounge (Bunker 33) has been closed for over a year. The golf course is miles away and there are no commissary or exchange facilities, other than the really small Mini-mart within a reasonable distance. So how can this facility be described as a "resort"? All it has to offer are full hookups. At $27 per day with no weekly or monthly rates it is grossly overpriced as are many of the Navy and Marine RV parks in Southern California. While WiFi is available, the going rates for the contractor connection only add to the rip-off. Don't think we will be back until Navy MWR managers have a reality check!
