Sept 2015 - Mar 2016

Our trip down from Buckley AFB in Denver and compared to Holloman is apples and oranges. Being on Military Installations, you would think of finding uniformity and familiarity from one place to another, for example, most of the sites on Holloman are gravel and the hard pads are rare to get for they are utilized by active duty personnel waiting for housing or other reasons, Buckley has hard concrete pads. Wifi is another example, virtually non-existant at Holloman unless you bring your own or have it installed, Buckley has a Verizon jet pack system you rent monthly for a refundable 50 dollars and is unlimited data. The camp hosts on both are present, willing to work with you and do a good job of accommodating travelers but it is advisable to contact the outdoor rec at both installations for availability. Holloman is quiet except for the highway noise and daily training of the pilots overhead. Lots of interesting places to see in the area, Trinity test site (open 2x year) lava beds north of the test range, space museum, observatory and white sands national park. I was paying 300 a month and was informed to the increase to 500 which in my mind doesn't warrant the increase unless they hard pad and use a jet pack wifi system.

We just finished a five week cross country trip from FL to CA and back in May. We stayed at 9 military RV parks. All are very different. Some spaces have covered picnic tables and some do not. Also was quite windy when we were there. Small but clean bathhouse. We were surprised how affordable the food was at this commissary so we loaded up. Not much in terms of clubhouse, but we were able to get wifi in our camper.

The road you turn left, after entering the base is Almagordo Blvd. (not Almagordo Ave) There is a rate increase 20/night and 120/week, 500/month. Laundry is $1 per load.  Driving through town I'm not sure I'd want to stay anywhere else.  The Sacramento Mountains are a beautiful view with an observatory and the white sands is a must.

Well, it seems they found one way to take care of the homesteading issue - rate sheet shows monthly rates now $500, weekly $120. I wonder when they'll figure out you can save $20 by doing 4 weeks instead of a month? No cable, wifi unusable but if those aren't critical its a good place to stay - clean, quiet.

The park is close to the highway, mostly gravel sites.  Has 30 & 50 amp service.  The advertised free wifi and cable did not work.  When speaking with others neither have worked for sometime.  There was a camp host, but he wasn't visible during our stay. I would rate this as a 3 out of 5.  It's okay but if they advertise wifi and cable, then they should have it!

Lots of homesteading here. All the cement spots are filled with homesteaders. We had to stay in a gravel site which was very muddy because of recent rains. Dogs running off leash, with dog poop everywhere. In fact there's piles of it. Bathrooms are clean. Laundromat is also clean, but very small. Place seems to be fairly well maintained but they should really address the homesteading issue. Also someone should enforce the dogs on leash rules too.

NOTE: If you a long "Big Rig" use the commercial gate. Be advised that there will be "NO SIGNS" from that gate to get to the Famcamp. I'm 43' and pulling a enclosed trailer. We were in the back row and able to keep the trailer hooked up. As stated in other reviews its an over-all good experience for being in the desert. White Sands is just down the road. Clean and well kept laundry and restrooms. There are some homesteaders but it seems that the CG never fills. Camp hosts are wonderful people and extremely helpful with any questions.

Can't beat the price for an extended stay. Nice sites on 2 of 3 rows with concrete pads and covered patio with some attempts at bushes or trees (its the desert ok). Third row is a gravel parking lot with hookups. Wifi was ok for us, actually got some pretty amazing speeds now and again. Cable was some kind of strange satellite system - maybe if I had a satellite receiver it would have helped - but we don't watch much if any TV so didn't try to figure it out. All kinds of things to do in the area - especially outdoor type activities - hiking etc. Base facilities if not real big are adequate and conveniently located in a central area. At the main gate they've done away with the Jersey barriers for the serpentine in favor of a 10-12" high poured curb so you don't have to worry about body damage - at least until you get to the ID check station where its a tight fit but doable. There is still the opportunity to abuse tires tho as the scuff marks on the curb indicate. The commercial gate is a straight shot but also has the tight fit issue - gate guard told me next time just to head for the truck inspection shed to the right.

This was our first stay and found it to be a good value and location for things we wanted to do. It is small, but only $20/nt or $90/wk. Directions to gate very good. Commissary and Exchange convenient. We happened to be in area for first Saturday in April opening to public of Trinity Site. It is also open to public 1st Sat of October. Also drove to Roswell, White Sands Missile Museum and White Sands NP. Weather was windy and hot. Park not very full. Hosts were nice and facilities very clean. Amy and John Stanton

We got on base and totally got lost! Lucky for us the folks we asked for directions lived at the park so we followed them. (So thankful for those two to offer that service!!!!) Coming in the West gate, after going through security, you need to take first right at traffic circle then first right where you will see teen/youth center down that road. [I'm not giving you any street names because there were NO signs!!!] Then left on Mesquite (there was a sign there) and the park will be down the road on your right. You'll see it. Google gives a good pic of the route too. Good luck. Once there, we were welcomed by the camp host and it was all fine. We stayed in one of the new sites, which is just gravel, but all we needed for a few nights. I really like the covered patios that they have at the older sites. Nice amenity when it would be hot in summer. Kudos to the camp host who became our hero the next day. Our electric died on us that night. He called a mobile tech he highly recommended. Before the end of the day, we were back in business! (Turned out we had a short somewhere underneath, but we have the winter package where it's all sealed. He hardwired our cord to the front of the fifth-wheel and we were back in business. Awesome serve and price!) We stayed in a 40' fifth-wheel and have a Jeep pulling an 8' trailer (motorcycle). Everything fit at site. Great location for visiting White Sands park. Small exchange, but town just up the road had anything else we needed.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - This is our second visit to Holloman and we intend to come back next year. We are a 45 foot RV and we are able to fit in almost any of the spaces, something not always possible in other FamCamps. The previous reviewer who commented on the difficulty of coming in through the main gate is correct, the entry curves are difficult. We unhitched our toad outside the gate, which made it easier. On the plus side, there are things to do in the area, and the price of $90.00 for a week is great. The camp host said that even if you are only staying five nights, pay for a week, which results in a savings of 10.00. We stayed for 10 days and he had us pay for a week and then extend for 3 days. On the minus side, Outdoor Rec does not seem to be putting any money toward upkeep. I got wifi for one day and then nothing. Cable TV is down. There are some long termers, but they are active duty assigned to the base and even with them, the place was still only half full when we arrived. The commissary and exchange are not the largest in the Air Force, but not the smallest either. We were able to find almost everything we needed. If you have pets, plenty of space to walk your animals.

Nice park. Nice people. Small Commissary and BX. Front gate was a challenge with a 40 foot coach and dolly. I'd recommend using the contractor gate just West of the main gate if arriving M-F during the day.

We called when we were two hours out and was told there was one opening. First time in area and base/Famcamp was easy to locate. Under new management, 2 new buildings housing showers and laundries. Host at site 15 (Larry) was friendly and helpful. Small famcamp with 36 sites... but lots of overflow space. Clean... Clean...clean! What ever problems were in the past reviews were in the past... try this site again for a good experience... loved the area.

This is our second time here and it was everything we have come to expect from this base. Excellent commissary and BX. Close to two national landmarks, Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands. There are also there military bases, Holloman (AF), White Sands Missile Base (Army), and Ft. Bliss (Army) within 50 miles. Also are the cities of El Paso and Los Cruces as well as Alamogordo. The campground has a new area with water and electric. We will stay here again when in this area.

R.M. left this review using the Directory software: - It's been expanded to 35 hookup spots, the new ones did not have CTV. Not a bad place to stop with a Commissary & Exchange on base. Still a lot of people homesteading from the looks of things. A good laundry rooms, good showers. We spent two nights as we were waiting for tires to come arrive at a shop in Alamogordo (15 miles) and would have no problem coming back.

This FamCamp is very small, although there is adequate land nearby for expansion. It seemed that there were a large number of "homesteaders" (almost 50%) here and at least two Motor Homes (That I saw.) were turned away as all the pull throughs were taken. The place was trashy and poorly maintained - light bulbs out, shower door broken off the men's shower and laying against the wall, trash blowing around, etc. Not what you would expect for the nightly rate. There is a major road construction project on base which keeps you from finding the camp or getting to the gas station. Signage is poor or non existent. I squeezed through the cement blocks only to be told by the gate sentry that I should have used the West gate. A left turn onto Alamogordo was not possible because of road construction. Finding the camp was a real mess. This place needs major work.

The park is small and a bit out of the way to get to. The entrance to the base is being redone and they put in some big concrete blocks either side of each driving lane and they are very close. Close enough to have many scrape marks on each from vehicles bumping into them. The serpentine lanes are narrow and difficult to maneuver. One must go through base housing to get to the park and the roads there are narrow with cars parked on each side of the streets. Apart from that, the BX is acceptable as is the commissary as each is small. The town of Alamogordo is small but has just about everything one would need. The camp host was helpful but didn't really give us much in the way of info about the base or the town. We stayed here two nights passing through, which is our custom. We like to spend two nights each place we stay so we can see what there is to see every place we stop.

I can't honestly speak about the campground itself other than to say that it is somewhat difficult to find once you get on base. What I can speak about is how rude and disrespectful the campground host is. This was my first experience trying to stay at a campground on post....as we just bought our camper about two months ago. As we drove up we saw several spots we thought were open. I found the park manager and told her I was checking in.....she told me in uncertain terms that she didn't have any open spots. I understand that she was full.....however she was completely unprofessional. All I could do was shake my head and walk away....I will not be back.

Well based on others comments I called first and they said they were full and had no idea when a space would come available. I said don't you have a 30 day max stay especially for DOD employees and she said well we reevaluate the needs on a regular basis and they are short housing so alot of people are being able to stay more than 30 days. I appreciate that being applied to active duty IF NO QUARTERS ARE AVAILABLE. but definitely not for DOD employees.

Convenient stopover for travelers passing between 1-40 and 1-10. Small campground with most spaces occupied more or less on a permanent basis (DOD employees and some active duty military personnel. Wifi is iffy at best, and laundry facilities are limited to a couple of washers and dryers in one building and a couple of washers and dryers in another building. The price is a bit high for the limited services offered. Plenty of overflow--nearly unlimited. When the wind gets up, it can get pretty dusty. The interstate highway is across a dirt area from the camp, but I noticed very little noise except for a few big rig trucks. I would consider staying here again. Even though they do not take reservations, I highly recommend calling ahead to see if a full h/u site is available; otherwise, expect to stay in overflow a night or two.
