The actual GPS address is 2003 Atkinson Rd, Biloxi, MS 39531. The road through the campground is tight as others have noted, our 26 ft Classic GMC had no issues but a larger bus would, ask for a spot in the front of the campground if you are in a larger rig. The bathrooms were clean but definitely in need of repair, the sink was cracked and the shower head holder was broken. Insist that the clerk signs you out a MiFi ($100 deposit) or you will have no WiFi. The grass was mowed while we were there but it was pretty high before then.

New AFI restricts visits to 3 months, then out for a month. Snowbirds be aware! Facilities are terrible, NO maintenance at this campground! They say they are building a new facility, but have been saying this for well over a year now with no construction in sight. The garbage dumpsters may or may not get emptied weekly, the flies will let you know for sure! The grass cutting is abysmal at best, tall grass everywhere! Even around the power pedestals, so watch out for creepy critters! Bathhouses, 50's vintage and falling apart! The kids that work there are nice, just have no comprehension of RV's or running a campground. Washers and dryers, forget it, most are broke and have been for over a year. Sites are OK, unless you go to the back, then you have to hope you don't drag the rear bumper or high-center your rig trying to get on your site. The Air Force should be embarrassed to have this site listed in their inventory.

What a goat rope. Very hard for larger RV’s to manage thru the small roads and very steep and badly angled sites. When we arrived, the young lady at reception office gave us a spot we couldn’t fit in, then gave us another spot with directions to enter the wrong way, then said I don’t know anything about RV’ or camping. Famcamp is not actually on the base, the road entering the area is tight, along with turning in and out of campground. I don’t recommend for 36 ft RV or larger. Very disappointed

Kessler AFB – Biloxi Mississippi $22 a day for concrete slab with electric/sewer/water/picnic table – cable box available Pros + Flat RV sites + Laundry room (2.00 per wash/dry) + Common firepit in the middle of the front campground loop + Bathhouses are ok, outdated and not terribly clean but good enough – though they were always full + Relatively close to the beach + Ice for sale + Rentals available on base (tents/grills/boats etc) Cons - This is actually an annex so you are off base which means you have to leave and drive 3 miles down the road to go to the base (not a big deal but we enjoy being able to walk around the base or walk to the gym from the RV sites) - WiFi is weird there, they use Verizon MiFis so you have to give a deposit of $100 to have your own WiFi. Since we are in a class B (therefore leaving regularly) we were told not to worry about it and just use others as we are all given a master list to the units- this did not work. We have very few visible networks to use and then had to wait 2 days for a box to be turned in so we could borrow it. But once you have one you are golden! - Back in angle of the slabs can be tight (even in our B we had to do small movements to get into the sites (#6) +/- As mentioned this is an annex location therefore there is no security/checkpoint to enter.

Don't use the Bathhouse if at all possible. Bathhouse is in drastic need of upgrades. The two toilets are loose and seals are just about gone. Urinal is stained and handiecap grab handles are rusted. The two showers are stained and look ugly. Sinks are also ugly and mirrors hanging loose or propped up on the countertop.

4 April - 1 May 2017

Nice enough campground. We arrived early and were told if we had prior reservations to check the list on the door of the office and park and come back at 1530. No problem. We go parked ok. I found on hooking up our utilities that the sewer line was just a pipe stuck up from the ground, no threads or any way to keep the sewer hose in the hole. Ijust stuck it in the pipe and hoped for the best. We attempted to set up our sattalite dish and found we could not get a signal. I noticed that the neighbors had cable running into their coach so I hooked up ours, remember that we had not got checked in yet, I found that I could only get a set screen on scan of the cable. I went to the office at 1530 and meet a very nice lady that explained the cable needed a box, which she gave me, hooked us up with the usual brochures and paperwork. On the third day I attempted to dump my tanks when I opened my valve the hose blew out of the hole and soaked my feet and the surrounding ground. The drain, because it had no cap on it, was full of leaves and other trash. The mananger called CE on a emergency call out to fix the drain. They came out about an hour later to fix it. The bath houses were in need of some updating really bad. The grounds needed a good clean up. Other than that it was a good campground for the money. We were here in a 38' class A. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

We didn't find the campground especially difficult to find or to get to in our 35' motorhome (just enter "200 Annex Rd Biloxi" into your GPS, then follow the "Keesler AFB FAMCAMP" signs to the campground entrance.) The campground itself is outside the base - just next to leased family housing - and is a bit of a letdown. It appears to have been neglected & in dire need of some "TLC": 3 of the 5 washers in the laundry were inoperable, the grounds need some tending & the shower/restrooms are BADLY in need of some upgrades. It's just a short drive over to Keesler AFB from the campground.

Campground is difficult to get to. You must travel a narrow local street which appears to dead end near the campground. Once inside campground there is adequate space to maneuver your RV. We were placed in the overflow area even after I had called to reserve a site for overnight. Campground was full with many active duty personnel attending school on base. Only water and electric were available to us. Lots of shade but sites appear to be somewhat tight. Office staff was friendly and helpful to us in locating an overflow site for one night. Had to disconnect the toad before parking our Class A motor home. We would consider staying here again with better arrangements.

Here we are again. This time I have some good news to report. The host said that Keesler is going to build a new Famcamp with over 100 sites and will take reservations. The old camp will remain open as an overflow area. I saw a map of Biloxi with this site marked off and it's located near the Imperial Palace Casino at the southeast corner of Porter Avenue and Division Street. east of I-110. At least it's good news for me because I stay here twice a year and like the idea of making reservations. Now some not so good news. The homesteaders with the large toyhauler 5th wheel are still in the short-term site area. Otherwise, another good stop-over.

This is still a nice campground with great hosts. There are some things happening here that I don't like. They have this one section you can only stay for 2 weeks and then have to get out. The rest of the park is open for homesteaders and active-duty at Keesler to live rather than base housing. I found on this visit that homesteaders are now in this 2-week only section. They all have 2 cars or trucks and park anywhere they want to. Our neighbor had a 45 foot toy hauler that took up most of the site and they parked their car almost in the road and the truck whereever. That could mean on the grass next to the one neighbor or the concrete behind my unit. They dropped the tailgate on the toy hauler and used it as a patio and would leave 2 large dogs out there when they left. The dogs barked one day from about 4 pm until when they came home at around 9 pm. Nothing can be done about it because what I hear is that these people claim they are not leaving their dogs outside unintended because the patio is attached to the trailer. I try to remember these people and not park next to them next time. It's still a great place to stay while in the area and we'll be back in about a week. In my opinion, the hosts, Al and Bobbie are about the best anywhere.

We just spent a week here. We were happy with our stay. My husband was assigned here pre Katrina therefore we knew the area. We visited during the time Mardi Gras parades were scheduled. There are plenty parades during this time. Check www.wlox.com for parade schedules. Next door to fam camp is Hiller Park. This includes tennis courts, disc golf, play ground, ducks to feed and walking path. A lot of the locals use this park. On the back bay of the park is quiet for a picnic or just to sit and enjoy the water. The base has a beautiful BX, Commissary and Marina. Famcamp the Laundry is $1.50 per wash load and $1.50 dry load. This park is close to a Walmart Neighborhood market and other shopping. New shopping area is located at I-10 & I-110. Great place.

Another great visit. I will say again that the hosts, Bobbie and Al are 2 of the best hosts I'm come across. We arrived around noon and was allowed to choose our site from many. Something happened here on Saturday that I've never seen before. We had been to town and when we arrive back at the camp, there was a Keesler security policeman at the entrance checking IDs. I have never seen this before and asked the host (Al) about it. He said they've been doing this for a long time. We were here for a week in April and never saw it and this was the first time this trip. Al said it was because of what happened at Fort Hood. The officer left about an hour later and was never seen again. If they are worried about an attack, what happens during the time there are no ID checks? An hour here and there makes no sense to me at all. Another first for me at military bases was once going onto Keesler they asked to see my drivers license. None of this was a big deal to me, I'm just mentioning it. This Famcamp has made a complete turnaround from what it used to be and I enjoy staying here very much.

Prices need to be updated $420 for a month which starts on the 1st not the day you arrive and they do not prorate. If you show up in the middle of the month you may end up paying the same for a couple of weeks as you would the entire month. No reservations: first come first serve but you get to pick your site. We first stayed here in April 2014; they have short term and long term sites. We came back in May and stayed in a long term site. Overall pleased with area... the sites are a little tight but considering we came from Ft Sam where the sites are huge we got used to it.

We loved this FamCamp and the area so much that we stayed an extra day. The Camp hosts Al and BJ were fantastic and helped us with everything that we needed. The bathhouse is spacious and immaculate!!!!!! The camp has quite a lot of tree shaded sites and it is very neat with a very relaxing atmosphere. We would love to come back again, and again, and again!!!!!

What a great place! Neat and clean, and less than five minutes from the beaches and casinos. The campground manager was friendly and helpful. Everyone we met in the park was friendly. Lots of grass and plenty of places for our dog to run around. We had been warned about noisy trains and our first night there was indeed a very loud train that woke us up at 3:00 AM. The second and third nights either there were no trains or we somehow slept through them. Overall, I'd say the train noise was infrequent and not a big deal. We would definitely stay here again.

Things are starting to look up for this Famcamp. In the past it has been a haven for homesteaders and stocked with many old ragged looking RVs with some on blocks. I don't know if it is because of the new hosts or not. The two hosts (not here my last visit) are very nice and accommodating folks. All the junky RVs including the old beat-up rusted out Winnebago are gone. The place is starting to look a lot nicer. We called from the interstate to inquire about a site and was told to come on in. The host said they close between 1 and 2 p.m. but would be on the lookout for us. We arrived about 1:15 p.m. and given a choice of several campsites. Another improvement this time is WiFi. They have Verizon MiFi boxes they loan you and you use them to connect to the internet. They do require a deposit of 100 dollars but will return that when you turn in the equipment.

Attendant named BJ greeted us as soon as we drove up. She was very courteous and helpful. She gladly drove us around the park to show us the available spots. The park was neat and clean and the bath houses were spotless. The park is located a little bit out of the way but BJ gave us a map and information about the base. It is not an attractive park but the price was right and everything worked as it should. We will use it again. Thanks BJ! Garrett
