Directions

Directions
Directly off US-70, west of Alamogordo. Campground is on Base. Entering from the West Gate turn right at the first right on Mesquite Rd. Continue until you see the campground entrance on the right. Note: Entering from the West Gate is the easier entrance as you can go through the truck inspection station and avoid the S-curves which are difficult in a longer RV without hitting the curbs. ---- When coming in through the main gate take the first left on Alamogordo Ave after passing through the gate. Stay on Alamogordo Ave into family housing and take the first left (Andrews Ave.). Go to the end of Andrews Ave. to the "T" in the road. Turn right on Mesquite Rd. and the entrance to the campground will be on the left. Check in with Camp Host.

Stayed last week while traveling through. Two nights. It is as close as you can get to White Sands National Monument about 7-8 miles away. That in itself made the boring camp worthwhile. Wifi was strong when near the laundry facility -very nice amenity to have to catch up with email. The laundry facility was helpful, but could use some work inside with perhaps installation maps and other pamphlets for tourists. The impression is that the camp is very low priority for this installation. If you venture out to the base, they have a really great library, golf course, running areas and base exchange, commissary. I'll stay here again if in the area - enjoyed the view of the mountains with sunrise and the close proximity to highways to travel to my next destination.

Well its a place to be and have the essentials - pretty its not, kinda scruffy actually. Interesting as I think the rest of the post has spruced up since our last stay. Definite homesteading presence. But, everything we used worked and I didn't see any out of order signs. I had a great Verizon signal so didn't bother with the wifi or cable. Long term rates have been reduced (!) week is now $100, a month is $400.

Open dry campsites, only amenities are BX, commissary and gas station, no diesel and no propane on base. Base commander should provide funding to cleanup the area.

WORST CAMPING EXPERIENCE EVER! DO YOU LIKE TO CAMP ON A SANDLOT? THEN THIS IF FOR YOU! NO bushes, trees, flowers or native plants...just dirt. DO YOU LIKE HIGHWAY NOISE? THEN THIS IS FOR YOU! The 5'brick wall did nothing to dampen traffic sounds. YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT RESTROOMS? THEN THIS IS FOR YOU! The toilets are still broken...made "the Commander" really mad! Yes, Active Duty and long-term campers have the few "nice" spots: concrete pad, a shrub, and a covered table. SKIP THIS PLACE! SAVE MONEY - head east across the valley to OLIVER LEE MEMORIAL STATE PARK. Quiet; beautiful native landscape; hiking trails; water& electric for only$15/night!

Very good location for visiting White Sands National Monument. The sad thing is lack of maintenance support from the Support Squadron. Men's shower did not work for lack of a $10 part and no heat in men's or ladies restroom. The camphost has a golf cart for duties that has a flat and is not operational for use. A few fulltimers with their own extra "storage" scattered around their site. Great value for active and retired military that could be better with a little base support.

Arrived mid-afternoon. We got a hard pad. Plenty of room for dry camping. Many active duty personnel waiting for housing. Most facilities on base look new. No jet noise on weekends :-(

We just arrived and were surprised in how bad shape the FamCamp was in. Some prior occupants were more gracious than I. If your touring the White Sands NP or going up to Alamagordo it's good place to hold up. Like other comments this base has no pride.

Major improvements. WiFi and cable both working fine. But, maybe most appreciated for those who have wandered through post to get here - Mesquite (the road that goes in front of the FamCamp) has been put through to the road that the commercial gate is on. Now you just come through the commercial gate, take the first right and go til you get to the FamCamp. I don't think it shows on google maps yet you can see it on the satellite view.

Recommend utilizing the Commercial gate if possible. I believe it is open 0600-1800 M-F Signage from this gate to the Fam Camp is non-existent. The Fam-camp is to your right so head East and try to keep the highway in sight and you will find it. The serpentine at the main gate is very tight with our 43' 5th Wheel and the bollards at the guard shack is very tight with a dually. The condition of the Fam Camp was acceptable for a desert environment. We were able to get into one of the concrete pads with a cover over the table. The cable TV was inoperative but the Wifi had just been brought back on line. Our neighbor reported it was working pretty well. We have our own hotspot. I was surprised at the appearance of the base. It seems they don't have a lot of pride of ownership. Weeds have taken over the entire base. I have never seen a military facility look so shabby. There is lots of stuff to do and see here. We were here for the trip out to Ground Zero at the Trinity Site which was a happy coincidence. The Trinity site (where they tested the first Atomic Bomb in 1945) is only open twice a year. The first Saturday in April, and the first Saturday in October. We stopped at the White Sands National Park and the Space Museum. We also took a day trip up to Cloudcroft up in the Sacramento Mountains and then on to Roswell to the Alien Museum. A 275 mile trip but it sure was fun. Our stay was enjoyable and would stay here again.

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.
