Check in was easy but there are no signs until you are well past the main entrance. All of the connections are on the wrong side for hookup but with my TREK I was able to drive straight in and hook up on a level concrete pad. They have the best cable TV of any place that we have been to. Electric was up to 50 AMPs. There is no WIFI in the campgrounds but we were able to get it in the RV overflow which has 20 amps and water and it overlooks the river. There is the state aquarium and the Civil War museum to visit. None of the nice attractions on the station are open until Memorial weekend. The laundry room and bathrooms were first class. Nice place to plan for an extended stay.

We called in one hour prior to arrival and they thought they had two sites available. On check-in we were told to check the camp as they were not sure that any were available. When we got to the campground, there were four open sites. We stayed in site #8 and to our surprise, we had satellite if we pulled to the edge of the road. They have solved their trash problem with the addition of a dumpster. The rest rooms were clean and the laundry room was immaculate. They have a civil engineering crew that now handles the grass cutting. This woodsy campground was clean and had all slots filled during our stay. Improvements will bring me back again.

First I want to say that Jeff, the camp host, is outstanding. The campground needs allot of work. Hook ups are shared in many cases and max is 30 Amps. I had to run an extension over 50 feet to obtain 20 amps. The sewer hose had to have an added link to get the needed length of 30 plus feet. Due to the age of the water connections, ours and our neighbors leaked the entire time. There is no community restroom or wash facility. You can get WIFI at the Sub-Way which is within walking distance between the BX and commissary. All sites were full maybe because it was the weekend of the annual flying show. I would not recommend this Famcamp for other than an overnight.

We were in the bath house area which has 10 campsites that are of the lowest quality. It is a tough climb even for our 25 foot TREK. The price is out of site for water and electric. Would not use again because of price and driving conditions in and out. The bath house was Army clean.

We are presently at NAS JAX. On check in we were assigned to site 36. On arrival in the campground, site 36 was occupied. I was about to pull into another site and was told by a camper that many sites didn’t have power. Trusty voltmeter and I checked out three sites and after the CB had been flipped, all were good. We picked the most level and still had front tires barely touching in the level position. The entry drive is very narrow and would be almost impossible for anyone with a long trailer to back into. Folks also park their vehicles on this drive which provides more restrictions. We have many young campers at this time and they do not seem to be familiar with the dog codes. My dog was attacked by a small one running loose at 630 AM. Also found evidence of not using their doggie bags. The Navy Lodge is adjacent to the FAMCAMP and would be a much better landlord. An RV site is just like a room and can be booked in the same fashion. They are also open longer hours than the auto hobby shop, which is a half mile away. Great camp ground.

We arrived at WPAFB on a Saturday. The office was fully manned by a very competent staff. Since I had reservations, check in only took two minutes. I would strongly advise calling in early to reserve a spot as the Air Force Museum draws a crowd. When parking your RV at the museum, drive all the way to the end or your plate number will be announced while you are touring. This is not the same campsite that I used nine years ago. This FAMCAMP is now located in the area that used to be the home of the 17BW at the north end of the base. It is located in our old picnic area. The Campground is clean and level and satellite reception can be obtained from any site. Signs are lacking over the entire route so you will need a map from the gate guard. Water connection may need help from a fellow camper or your wife.

Arrived at Seymour on Saturday June 12 for two days. Had checked on Friday and they had three sites available. They are not open over the weekend and you need to leave your check in their mailbox unless you want to wait for them to open at 9AM on Monday. Nothing has changed. There is no camp host, but this is not a problem with such a small campground. Trees obscure satellite reception at most sites. The laundry room was clean with air but had no soap products to buy. Campground was clean but the trash receptacles were full. The library is no longer open on Sundays, so you can't keep up on those things we need the internet for. They have lowered their price to $15 per night but this is still high with no cable or WIFI available. We stay here because nothing else is available in the local area and the kids and grandkids are close by.

WIFI was down during our visit. With all of the expansion for the over-flow, one of the better amenities was lost. After setting up we took the dogs to the dog run and it was gone. There is room to add a new one but I was unable to get an answer as to a new plan. The FAMCAMP sign is still small and really difficult to see coming from the south. You can't beat Ray's fantastic $2 breakfast on Saturday mornings. We found a new restaurant in Pannama City on 98 Business that has great seafoood for lunch or dinner. They shuck the oysters in front of you at Hunt's Live Oyster Bar which was worth two visits. We will be back.
