P.M. left this review using the Directory software: - The park is being updated. They have torn out the lower sites and are replacing the electric, paving the sites with gravel, removing extra trees so we can get satellite and the bigger rigs can use it. Should be great when done. Meanwhile, half the sites are not in use. Re messages on "homesteaders" the base allows people who are in their school to live at the park.

R.B. left this review using the Directory software: - When leaving 05/05/13 at 0730 AM I discovered that the gate we normally arrive and depart by now has limited hours. The staff at MWR failed to inform anyone that due to the recent automatic budget cuts the gate hours have changed. I had to unhook my tow vehicle in order to turn around. I think the staff could provide better information the RV'ers as we arrive. I would like to also add that when I asked how to get to the golf course I was informed that it is now closed due to some kind of land ownership dispute between DOD and MWR with no plans to ever open the course again. Other that what I have already mentioned it was a good two day stay.

J.N. left this review using the Directory software: - My reservation was lost, although they would not admit they made a mistake, even after I showed that on the 29 of May we talked for 4 mins. on my phone record. This not withstanding they did accommodate us.
T.H. left this review using the Directory software: - Restricted access to base. Requires purchase of an MWR pass.

T.P. left this review using the Directory software: - We had reservations for space 11 starting on the 19th but because of the issues with Camp Roberts (see my post for details) we decided to try and come in early. Called the camp on Sunday morning (the camp host answered on the 2nd ring) and asked if we could come in early. He said when we said today he said which site we told him he said wait on while I check it then he said its open I put a cone in front of it. When we got their he meet us and led us to our site offering an assistance that we might need. The base is a long way from anywhere but has some very interesting things to see if you are into missiles and the like. Good Exchange & Commissary but the post office is a bit flackey. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would return.
T.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Pelican Roost was full when I called to reserve and the staff set me up in Osprey Cove. Apparently about 18 sites in Pelican Roost have been lost due to electrical problems the host tells me so they are utilizing available sites a Osprey Cove for short timers (we were there 4 nights). Nice clean campground with the sites situated among mature shade trees. One bit of information if you come to Mayport is get a pass. The gate guard didn't mention it to us and we assumed access was as all the other places we have been where producing my retired ID card was sufficient for entry. I found out when we were returning after a shopping trip to the off base commissary with our tow car. The passes are available at a layby just inside the main gate. However, since we were after 1600 we could only get one for that day. You can get a multiple day pass during normal duty hours. Not a big deal just a little surprise inconvenience.
T.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Wes, the host was super. He provided us with a wealth of local information. I was concerned about the "no reservation" policy that they may be full and I'd be stuck. However, Wes assured me that even if the sites were full that he would have found room even if it required dry camping until a site opened. Nice to know there is little risk of being turned away after a long drive. The campground is really nice. The pads are large and include a patio. This is one of the best.

L.S. left this review using the Directory software: - We called ahead to see if they had a spot and we were told to go to the campground, pick out a site and then report to MWR office (about a mile down the road). It would've been helpful to have a map of the campground. There are pull-thru sites, but some were used as 2 back-in sites. Hook-ups were all over the place. Our first electrical didn't work and had to use the hook-up next to ours. But that site didn't have water, so we weren't worried about using it. We reported to MWR that site 24 didn't have electric and she said she would report it. Also during our stay several of the sewer connections were overflowing. Camp host said it had been reported. There no longer is wi-fi. We got 2 digital TV channels sporadically. All in all a good place to stay if you like civil war history and the price can't be beat.

C.S. left this review using the Directory software: - Park is at the far eastern edge of the base, which is good because it is quiet and very pleasant environment, but it is bad because one has to drive all the way across the base if you come in the Main Gate. All sites are pull through. Slight incline from back to front in the Row 45-50 so leveling is a bit challenging unless you move far forward in the site. Power is clean 20/30/50 amp electric, water and sewer. The camp host is meticulous, informative and very pleasant to do business with. She went to great detail to describe the attractions in the area and recommended certain things to do. Rules are strict, but the place is clean and attractive because they enforce the rules. If.. there is a 90 day limit on a single stay I wonder if it is being adhered to. Some units look like they have been here for quite some time. The park was only half full when we arrived. Calling ahead 1 day was sufficient to have a confirmed site for 3 days. We have a 40 foot motorhome towing a Jeep SUV. The entrance road is paved and the interior roads are paved and generally wide enough for maneuvering, but it might be better had we unhooked the towed at the office before moving to the site.
L.S. left this review using the Directory software:- There were homesteaders at the park. One man bragged that he lived there for a year and a half. Another one said six months. Thought this was against the rules. No wonder we have trouble getting reservations. Something needs to be done about this abuse.
L.S. left this review using the Directory software: - This campground is almost all homesteaders. Very obvious. Nice place, but hard to get into with all the "permanent" residents. What happened to no homesteaders????
W.P. left this review using the Directory software: - This is a very nice and clean RV park. Our stay was for a week in mid-April 2013. The only problem was my motor home sticker had expired and we were told to park in the parking lot next door and register the motorhome. The sticker on the van was still good. The parking lot was designed for cars and not for motorhomes and especially towing. Luckily a couple of cars were pulling out as we entered so I blocked part of the drive and 4 parking places. I am not critical of the security requirement of registering, but of the parking not designed for RV’s. Fort Jackson in our home area and where our vehicles are located has closed the registration office and no longer requires post registration. This is the reason my motor home sticker had expired.

T.P. left this review using the Directory software: - While the office personnel were very nice and helpful that was about the only good thing about our visit to this camp. We made reservations for two (2) days in a pull thru site well in advance and were assigned a site number. Two days prior to our arrival we were contacted and told our site number had changed. When we arrived the nice lady at the desk informed us that the people in the site that we were assigned to had failed to vacate the site so we would be put into a back in site. No big deal as I had intended to drop the Toad anyway. When we got to the site there was no pad gravel or otherwise heck there wasn’t even a path just a pole with a number on it. After leveling up a process which required some moving around to find a spot level enough to be able to level the coach, I went out to hook up. Had electrical and Sewer but no water there wasn’t even a pipe much less a faucet. Ended up moving to the other open site putting my rig between two sites because it didn’t have water ether and running my sewer hoses to one site and sharing the water with the occupied adjacent site after I repaired the leaking faucet. We cut out planned visit short and left the next day never to return.

T.P. left this review using the Directory software:- Came expecting to stay for a week stayed for 2 and a half. Staff was excellent although the office hours are short. Great base lots of things to do in the area the base is about halfway between Sacramento and San Francisco. The NEX gas station on right side of the road if you are coming from the camp ground is big rig friendly. The one on the left not so much.

T.P. left this review using the Directory software: - Visited for 3 days excellent camp. Staff is very friendly and professional. It is a good thing they have cable because over the air reception is limited and due to the very wooded nature of the park there is no satellite reception. You will need to pick up a converter box when you check in to use the cable. The box is free but you have to leave a $150.00 deposit on the box. They run a paper credit card slip when you pick up the box and return the slip when you bring back the box. Will use this camp again.
