Nothing changes here...It's merely great!!!! Played a little golf and headed up the road. I always stop here on my out of FL and on the way home to FL. I'll see ya'll in very late Oct.
If everything in this park were as nice and accommodating as Rick, I could stay there for a month. And the truth is, most everything is that nice. But then I tend to nit-pic. A few too many homesteaders and a couple of them are in really old rigs that need to be replaced. I understand that the rent from these keep some of the Military RV parks open, but really?? Commissary and BX were both close to the RV park. There was only Bio-Diesel available on base, but it was very expensive. Regular fuel off base was much more reasonable. There is some nice shade to be had in the park. the seafood around town is fabulous!!!!! No cable, but the antenna worked fine. Had to leave early for an emergency back in FL. I'll be back for sure.

When I called and made my reservations in June, I talked with a young man who confirmed to me that they had cable TV, and the golf courses were still, I was hoping for a lot of time to visit DC, see the sights and play some golf. The golf courses were sold to DIA and the campground did not renew the CATV. I don't like being told "X" and getting "W" without knowing ahead of time since I made the reservation early enough that I could have changed it to Andrews AFB. That being said, the restrooms were very clean and the laundry room was the same. The people in the MWR office were very nice..but they could have called me and let me know some days out so I could have made better arrangements. Commissary and BX were excellent!!! No diesel for civilians on base.

There is a reason this is always rated as one of "the" best RV parks in the military. It's very clean, roomy, and the people there take pride in what they do. It shows. I wish they took as much care of the golf course. It's ok, but compared to the RV park, it's not great. I guess the only drawback is that it's off the beaten path. Quite a ways from I95. Kudo's to the help there. They are great!!

This was my 3rd time to stay at Parris Island. Very little TV...Great golf at Legends of Parris Island...BX and Commissary were very adequate...no diesel on base to purchase...but the sounds of freedom all around...from rifle fire in the AM to forced marches in the PM and some mornings. Each Friday, a new group of recruits graduate. Just saw the same thing at Ft Benning in Aug. Young men and women eager to serve our country....Brings a tear to my eye thinking about it. Brave kids. Bathrooms and showers are always clean...I guess cable all the way out there would be very expensive to do, so we'll just have to make do with movies and golf...

Overall, this is a nice place. There isn't any security. Anybody can come in the campground. Anyone can go fishing on the pier. Anyone can use the restrooms or showers unless a camper steps up and says no. There are a lot of house trailers here. They are working to improve them.
I found some of the hook-ups for RV's are quite odd in some sites. Water on wrong side, electric or cable far away. It's just weird. But it is close to the beach if you like the beach. There are some very reasonable golf courses near which is a plus to me. The staff was very helpful and sincere in wanting to provide a nice experience. That's a great plus!!!! Sunsets on the Cape Fear River were wonderful!!

Nice place to stop and stay for a few days. Hadn't seen a B-52 since 1968. They fly regular here. Played golf at the base's golf course. Caught it at the wrong time. They had just aerified and sanded the greens a week before, but that's life. It's a necessary thing to to. The campgrounds were clean, sites were roomy though it seemed like a few people had been there for some time. Campers were parked there and not a sole in them for my 3 day stay. Restrooms were very clean. FAMCAMP people were very helpful. I'll stop by anytime I'm passing through for a day or 4. After all, there are casinos in town. Over all, a nice place.

The directions were perfect and even my 3 yo GPS could locate the park. The bath and shower room could use updating, but were clean while I was there. The people running the FAMCAMP were nice as can be. The civilian parties were a little loud with their music. I guess they rent the pavilions out to help pay for the running of the camp. I didn't see anyone rent a boat while I was there. I did get to play a very nice golf course on the NE side of town called Quicksand Golf Course. Greens were great, tees and fairways were above average but the over all experience was very nice. They give discounts to military and seniors. It took me 3 days to break 80 from the tips (7000 +). Nice track for all you golfers out there. There is other stuff to do in town too. There is an old Buffalo Soldier fort there. And the Concho River is a nice walking area downtown. Lots of good Mexican food.

Really a nice place with great people. The other poster's have it right. It's a gem. Sites are narrow because of the trees (couldn't put out my awning but could have chosen another site if I wanted). Cable works great. Good signal with my Verizon phone and internet card. People here are very friendly and I'll stop here again on my way west next spring.

This has become my favorite place in SO.CAL. to stay as well. I also had trouble getting through earlier in the summer to reserve a place. I asked for a spot close to the showers and laundry but got moved to where it was a trek with my laundry. Not a serious problem, but when I reserved, I was told I would be close. There is not a lot on this base in the way of playgrounds for kids, commissary, or decent BX. But I haven't felt this secure since 1968. There is a young man now working in the office who really wants to do a good job. Hopefully he'll stay. But this is very close to the beaches, sunny late in the morning, and nice an cool at night. A huge plus having just come from Nellis AFB, NV !!! The golf course was very nice also. I have always said, "If the greens are good, I don't care if the place is a goat ranch." Beautiful redone clubhouse with a nice breakfast and a lunch buffet. Delicious!!!! And I'm off to Admiral Baker in San Diego.
