The previous review is right on for facts. But, somewhat off in expectation. The West Fort Hood RV Park is just what it appears to be... an RV Park. They don't pretend to be a resort. If your looking for an RV resort... go to the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA), just down the road. It costs a lot more too. The West Fort Hood RV Park is a very reasonable place to park and serve as a base of operations. I paid $8.25 (w/Golden Age Passport), a day, for a week's stay. And they have all the basic requirements... a quality bathhouse and restroom facility. A modest playground for children. Full hookups (water, sewer, electricity, basic cable). Laundry facilities. A TV and game room. No wireless though (no problem, I set up my StarBand system). Also, diesel is available on the main post, at the station by the main gate. It appears to be about nickle cheaper that the economy. All in all, our experience was extremely pleasant. The only negative that comes to mind is that you should try to get on a row that is away from the main road. It get quite noisy when folks are going to work in the mornings.

Great campground. Commissary & Main Exchange is located about 5 miles away on Correy Station. Not too inconvenient. Bath facility is cleaned twice a day. I found two WiFi networks that were unsecure, free, and available. They were identified as "Internet" and "Internet1". Both operated at 11Mbps. Very friendly campground. Sites were available during our entire stay. Weather was extremely humid. Beach was great. Diesel is available. Extremely limited parking at the NEX on NAS Pensacola. No problem at Correy Station.

Nice level concrete pads. Hookups were at rear of pad. Fresh water and sewer right next to each other. You need a long sewer hose if you want your door near to the picnic table. Sites on the outside of the loop require a right hand backup to park (I hate right hand backups). WiFi available if you are close to the office. We were in site 28 and had a weak, but usable, signal. Network is called "Poree".

Agree with other posts. The campground host is to be commended for his work at the campground. The shower/bath facilities also had a free washer and dryer. They were kept in excellent condition. Civilians are allowed, but military has priority. There are quite a few "homesteaders", but plenty of room for drifters like us. Good southern exposure for satellite TV and internet dishes is available. The new, "short term" (no more than two weeks) campground is on the main post right under the red and white checked water tower. It isn't open yet, but when it does, you'll need to go through the main gate to get there. It is within walking distance to the PX.

WalMart with hookups. I don't mind that there were no amenities, but I would like full hookups. Nothing more than a great level concrete pad with water, electricity, and rudimentary cable TV. The dump station is nearby. A little too expensive ($14.00) for what was offered. But better than nothing.

The "3" rating for Amenities/Facilities was given for the bath/toilet facilities and no on site sewer connections. Some sites aren't well defined and don't have both 30 and 50 amp service. Some have 50 and some have 30. There is a $5.00 daily entrance fee. Waived for Golden Age/Golden Passport holders. The entrance gate is locked at 2200 hrs (10:00PM). The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. When using their WiFi system and you're using Outlook or Outlook Express, your outgoing email server must be configured as "smtp.gvtc.com"Â (leave off the quotes). The laundry room is behind the office. Not free though. Pay washers and dryers. Overall, it was a most delightful experience. I will definately return.
