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

Stopped here enroute to Florida. Called ahead and the hosts were very accommodating. The host was very nice and gave us a site number since we were going to arrive late. The directions the website were great, but there were no signs along that route to indicate you were headed to the camp. Upon arrival one of the hosts greeted us. The site was great! Overall appearance is the grass needed cutting (knee-high), which was cut three days later. About 70 percent of the sites are taken up by people who live there and they have all the shady sites. There are several trailers on cement blocks with one old..... Winnebago which lacked all four wheels, and the door appeared to be tied on. The one RV next to the office was not the host and the site was very cluttered. Regardless, we enjoyed our visit and the amenities are nice. I just wish that they will ask the permanent rvers to cleanup their areas/rv's and mow more often. All famcamp facilities were clean.

I was very apprehensive after reading earlier reviews. Glad we had a better experience. From my first call, I had great service. The directions on the website were perfect, and we drove right to the camp. There were few sites to choose from because there are quite a few homesteaders here, but we got a good location. There really is an old Winnebago that is on jack stands. I don't get it, but I don't really care. The camp is quiet and it's close to everywhere we wanted to go. We will definitely be back. You sure can't beat the price.

We stopped by Keesler RV FamCamp after driving around for half an hour. We missed a turn and went on base. Big Mistake. The FamCamp is not on base and hard to find. We entered the FamCamp and found the office closed. The sign said to see the Camp Host but no site was listed. We drove around the campground and a woman came out of one of the bathrooms and unlocked the office. Not sure who she was. She said that there are no facilities there but suggested that we go to Shields nearby, which we did and are glad we did.

We had no intentions staying here. Last time we stayed here we said never again. But the weather changed our minds. We have been staying in Ocean Springs at the Gulf Islands National Seashore campground but couldn't find a suitable site this time. We called Gulfport Seebee Base and they had an opening so we headed there. By the time we got to the Ocean Springs-Biloxi bridge the weather had changed drastically. We go caught on the bridge in what I found out later to be 60 mile an hour winds. It was very scary. On the coast road thru Biloxi we were pelted with more winds and blowing sand. We decided that we would try Keesler to get off the road. To our surprise they had two sites to choose from. The host was new since our last visit and seemed a lot nicer than previous ones. We had a nice site but the overall appearance of this park is not nice. I would guess that about 70 percent of the sites are taken up by people who live here permanently. There are trailers on cement blocks. One old beat-up Winnebago was still there from our last visit. For the ammount of units here at the time, we saw very few people. Regardless, we enjoyed our visit. I just wish that the next time they will have cleaned the park up some, but doubt it.

We found an attendant sitting behind the desk with his feet up on the table. We visited for more than 30 minutes with the attendant Joe, and a co-worker. He didn’t move the entire time we visited. Not that impressed with the help or the park. Joe told us they had only one site and it was intended for a small 28 ft trailer or less available. He had no idea when there would be an opening. He pointed us in the direction of the overflow for the night but after driving through the park we chose to go onto the Shield RV Park for the week. The park is well used and run down and has several homestead occupants. We found one unit with rusted wheels and body that looked as if hadn’t moved in years. According to one of the fellow RV’rs the occupant had not moved in over 7 years. Wow what an operation. The park is not intended for large units as it has several concrete back-ends with 2 ft or more drops off. We found this park very difficult to park our 34 ft Allegro. This park is run down and needs a facelift of buildings, park facilities, and a general weeding of homestead occupants and employees. This unprofessional operation is a site to behold. If you desire trees, and crowded sites packed together on concrete pads with 2 ft drop offs, enjoy. Price might be inviting but the amenities are far less than expected for an Air Force Base operation.

Talk about a Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde experience! After being greeted by Joe and made to feel right at home, the second evening when I came back and parked (in an overflow spot) as I had been directed by Joe to park, this mad woman from Hades came screaming across the road to my rig telling me I had to turn around and accusing me of having only paid for one night! I tried to calm her down to tell her that I had been directed to park as I was, but she couldn't stop yelling long enough to listen. A thoroughly distasteful experience. Joe came the next morning to apologize, but I assured him none of it was his fault in any way. Had the woman been polite and respectful there would have been nothing about which to be concerned. The head of the entire operation came and apologized, so I will probably return when I'm in the area again. Being self contained I didn't use the restrooms, but it was the first military laundry I've ever seen that didn't sell detergent nor softener.

A little hard to find, we had to call Camp Host who was awesome and willing to take the time to help us find park. Park seems a little run down and looks like there have been some long term residents. Bath house is pretty weathered but was clean. Over all a decent over nighter for the price.

We had an unexpected sewage problem while camping in front of the Hard Rock Cafe (yes, you can dry camp in the front of the Hard Rock), & Joe was outstanding! He directed us to several RV mechanics, one of which was on-property. Our situation wasn't completely resolved but we sure appreciated his help in getting us assistance to survive for the night. Camp spot was readily available and reasonable considering we needed the toilet/shower house for 2 days. The park is pretty far off of the beaten path (casino's/restaurants) but pretty reasonable if you plan to stay in Biloxi for a few days.

We had an unexpected sewage problem while camping in front of the Hard Rock Cafe (yes, you can dry camp in the front of the Hard Rock), & Joe was outstanding! He directed us to several RV mechanics, one of which was on-property. Our situation wasn't completely resolved but we sure appreciated his help in getting us assistance to survive for the night. Camp spot was readily available and reasonable considering we needed the toilet/shower house for 2 days. The park is pretty far off of the beaten path (casino's/restaurants) but pretty reasonable if you plan to stay in Biloxi for a few days.

We spent the night here after staying two nights at Shields RV park at the Navy CB Battalion in Gulfport, not far away. Cleanliness was like night and day. Keeslers Fam Camp needs a desperate "spring cleaning." We have stayed here many times before and the cleanup is well overdue. We talk about "homesteaders" and this is one of those places where it really shows. The area we were in was run down, utility's were in need of repairs. The bath house is old but clean so this proves that the area could be cleaned up. The Fam Camp is off base nestled among base housing located off main base. The base is nice, we use to enjoy the club at the marina but the new club is up and running so they closed the bar at the marina. After parking our rig we walked a few miles thru the nearby park to a nice restaurant. Beaches are not in walking distance and there is not a lot around the RV park. Reservations can't be made but we had no problem this time of year. Pictures look better then park.

We stayed there for a few days while we were on our Grand Tour. The park host was courteous and helpful. The facilities clean and orderly. There were a lot of homesteaders but plenty of spaces for actual RV travelers. No WiFi, still, and that was a headache for those who want to stay connected. The BX has WiFi but you have to pay for it, it's not free. Kind of a ripoff and not what I expected from the Exchange. We connected at the hospital but that's kind of our of the way. The nearest McDonald's worked out OK, but still inconvenient. Otherwise, the place was acceptable.

We are Fulltime and we stay at Keesler FamCamp every time we are going through the area. We try to schedule our travels to stay there at least a week. The area is normally quiet except for the occasional flights from the base. But I have always looked at those little noises and things as our price of freedom. Joe and Bobi are great people and will always help you when you need it. All you have to do is ask. Even though they do not take reservation we have never had an issue getting a spot. Call ahead and see what is available. I wish they had wifi available, but I understand it is in the works along with the possibility of turning one storage lot into additional RV spaces. Great Idea. Hope to see it soon along with the WiFi. Easy access to the base if needed and great local eateries. Bootleggers Pizza, the best around, will deliver to your site and they offer a military discount.

R.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Lovely spot! Host Joe Clark was ultra-helpful and friendly and got us right into a pull-through site. Wish they had WiFi but understand that is in the bidding process now. Would go back anytime.
