First visit to this Famcamp and it was enjoyable. The park was well kept and clean. Didn't experience any of the "host" problems others have spoken of. There was a gentleman, Nick, that meet us as we arrived and escorted us to our site. Someone was in our assigned site and Nick immediately called Outdoor Rec and got us another site. Nick told us that the former host had died in August of cancer and there was a notice in the laundry room about the death of this individual. Nick was very friendly and was seen daily escorting new arrivals to their sites, doing general cleaning, and weed eating around the utility poles for the grass cutter. As far as the campground itself, it is far away from everything. The Wi-Fi is working now in the park, but is very slow. For no more amenities that the park has, the cost is a little high. If we are ever in the area again, we would not hesitate to stay here.

Read previous reviews and didn't find some of the problems that others pointed out. The main problem we had was the directions on this web site. We came in the gate 26A and followed the directions to the brown sign. The sign only had in tiny letters Bass Lake with an arrow pointing to the left and FamCamp with an arrow [pointing straight ahead. The other side of the sign which we didn't see had in large letters "FamCamp Sign-IN" and an arrow pointing to the right which you can only see if coming from the other direction. I followed the tiny sign that said FamCamp straight ahead. Going down that road about a quarter mile I then saw a campground off to the left. The sign in front of the campground said "FamCamp Annex". I thought to myself if this was the "FamCamp Annex" there must be a full campground further down the road, WRONG! After following the road for a mile or two I ran into a security patrol and asked him where the FamCamp was. He said to turn around and follow him. Not a fun thing to do with a 5th wheel. I found an intersection large enough to make a three point turn and followed him back to the FamCamp Annex. So, the FamCamp Annex is not an annex it is really the FamCamp. Someone needs to remove the word Annex from the sign and change the other direction sign adding "FamCamp Sign-IN" with an arrow pointing to the left on the gate 26A side of the sign. Although WiFi is advertised it hasn't worked since we have been here. My wife ran into a technician working on it and he seemed pretty positive that it would be working when he was finished. You can connect to the router but the router is not connecting to the Internet. I agree that they shouldn't allow homesteaders taking the best sites. If they allow homesteading they should have specific sites assigned, not the best ones. I also agree a camp host would be useful since the office is across base.

Adequate. Not being familiar with base we went to "B" side accidentally. We lucked out then with Gate 26A, definitely the closest to Famcamp. The layout of base is all cut up I imagine since they had to fence it after 9/11. Small BX and Commissary. Decent golf. Nice museum, but the Quantico Marine one is still our favorite. No reservations and no problem. Just gave CC over phone. Lots of empty spaces the week before Labor Day. We will stay again.

Spent only one night at the beginning of our western tour. Could see the landscaping and road into the campground needed attention but being so far from main base - well out of sight out of mind. Nice site and clean facilities. Homesteaders are either long term AD or some were certainly full timers using WP as northern home base. Very poor markings to get to campground from main gate.

Our first at this campsite. Bathrooms clean and freshly painted. Grass was mowed but no weed eating. The pros are the sites are level and full hookups. It was quite. The gate nearest the camp site is only open on the weekdays. On the weekends it's not a real problem getting across the base but it really is a long way away from anything. The cons are there are no camp host, office is so far away and there are problems reaching them on the phone. We really never did check in. We were told what site we had over the phone the day we made the reservations. As long as the office is across the base the camp will be "out of sight, out of mind". There were several homesteaders but there were plenty of open spaces. Saw AF Security Police patrol each night. Will stay here again.

The facility is adequate. There is very low water pressure. The largest problem is communication. The office is a long distance from the rv park (fam camp). It's located in the Outdoor Rec bldg, bldg 95. It is nearly impossible to reach them by phone, because they are too busy to answer it. It took two days to get a call back. When you do get someone on the phone, the service is great.
STAYED ONE NIGHT WHILE TRAVELING THROUGH THE AREA. RV AREA IS NICE & CLEAN - NO COMPLAINTS. NICE SMALL LAKE NEARBY. ON THE CLEANLINESS SIDE IT GETS A 4 OR 5. ON THE HOSPITALITY SIDE IT GETS A 0 OR 1 BECAUSE NO ONE AROUND TO ASK QUESTIONS, PAY OR ANYTHING. I CALLED AND GOT A RECORDING /LEFT MESSAGE AND GOT A CALL BACK. MADE A RESERVATION ON CALL BACK. I WOULD STAY AGAIN WITHOUT HESITATION BUT OFFICE SHOULD BE MORE ACCESSIBLE. I DIDN'T NOTICE ANY LONG-TERMERS AND EVERYONE STAYING THERE WAS NICE AND FRIENDLY. MILITARY WORKING DOG KENNEL NEXT TO SITES BUT NO BARKING OR PROBLEMS. MILITARY POLICE PATROLLED AT LEAST 2 TIMES PER DAY.

This is a nice, no-frills RV park with good hook ups. If you want a good value in the Dayton area, this is a wise choice. We've stayed here several times and have never had any problems making reservations over the phone.
Made reservations by leaving a message, they called back next day. Arrived after hours in the dark (big mistake) had difficulty locating famcamp missed turn went to end of rd, gate closed had to unhook tow vehicle, turn around a 38 footer not fun in the woods after dark. Camp sight was neat, clean, and roomy. Facilities were clean and accessible, security came by several times but just to use facility. Family, 3 adults 2 grandsons really enjoyed museum, we will go back, excellent learning experience.
I would agree with most of the other users. The Campground is nice and well maintained. However, the reservation system could use some help. We called and left two messages that were not returned. We called the third time when we were an hour away. We were told they were full but we could stay in the overflow sites. We arrived around 1630 and parked in overflow site 1. While we were there (2 nights) 8 of the 40 sites were unused. That is a high error rate!! Would also recommend reservations in advance and arriving when MWR is open. Would have stayed longer if we have full hook up.
Campground is in pretty good shape, paved spots which are pretty long. Only downside to the sites are long grass and the pavement is not level, took two blocks to get our trailer level. Shower house and laundry are in good shape and conveniently located. Now for our only serious complaints, organization of the reservations; we made our reservations and paid in advance and we were given a site number. Upon arrival that spot was already taken and nobody (host, outdoor rec) was available to assist. We just occupied a spot and was fortunate not to have inadvertently taken someone else's. I understand a lack of funding is reducing the workforce for outdoor rec but bringing in a motivated and organized host would do wonders. I recommend people visit this campground since it is pretty nice, near the interstate and the USAF museum but I would just recommend arriving when outdoor rec is open in order to resolve any issues.

D.W. left this review using the Directory software: - We enjoyed our visit and will visit again if we are in vicinity. It would be really great if the BX offered diesel fuel, however diesel is close by. The grounds are well kept and the bath house is clean.
