Very nice FamCamp, well run and well laid out. A couple of detractors. 1. Lots of long term campers - at least one that was a guest of a service member. The individual camper talked to me about only getting to stay 60-90 days before they had to leave for 14 days before returning. Given that this is a first come, first serve - guest staying that long are kind of a rub. 2. Highway noise. Nothing to be done about it - leave the AC on at night and you can barely hear it. All in all - a very nice camp for only $17 (include Senior Passport discount).

We pulled in at 1830 without a reservation, really nice camp host gave us the choice of the two remaning empty spots. the sites are concrete and level. there is a dog "walk" that is grassy- nice but not an off leash area. it's a holiday weekend, lots of dogs, kids playing, very lively but perfectly quiet at night. except for the road noise as mentioned, that didn't bother us, we're city folks.

This is a great location just off the highway but also a negative. The first couple of site rows are close to the highway and the road noise is very load. Super facilities with level concrete pull thru with good FHU's. The park is off the base with one way in and out and a wall around the park. I would stay here again.

Called from I -10 going west, at 9:30 am & was told there were 6 openings. Took the “less stress” directions. First visit since enlarged RV Park. Very nice. Good Sam couldn’t find cleaner, nicer bathrooms or showers. Great laundry & family room. Everything spic & span. The new PX on Post is the largest in the US. I simply couldn’t believe my eyes. So many name brand restaurants inside it, I can’t recall. The road noise Is a bit more than I’d like, but it can’t be helped. I’d give this facility and Ft Bliss and perfect 10. During our stay 4-6 spots open every day. If you call before the night host gets her nighttime report to the day crew, they can’t tell you how many spots are open. After 9 is best. Most departing RVs left about 10 am. Nice folks, Trent & Sophia!!

Good luck getting a spot! It is crazy that they don't take reservations. So go ahead and show up pulling a 35 foot trailer, squeeze into the small parking lot and pray you get a spot. In all fairness, I did call that morning and they said they wouldn't know if they had any openings until 1330. We were arriving at 1330 so there was no need to call them back. I don't understand how you wouldn't know if someone is leaving that day or not? I'm not a happy camper (pun intended, lol) with Fort Bliss!

Definitely take the less stressful route if you're I-10 westbound. No need to go through the city.

Called while enroute to park and was told they had 3 sites available and got one when we arrived. I didn't take the "less stress" route and I sure wish we had. Easy check in but parking was a little tight with the tree on the left side of site 84. Great laundry facilities, clean and all machines work. There are a lot of "long-term" residents but for the most part they keep their sites neat and tidy. I would really like to see the ability to make a reservation but, I do understand why they don't take them. Also, there is no WIFI that reaches the individual sites. It is available in the community room. Diesel and gas is available at the AAFES station across from the park. Freedom Crossing is a huge shopping/recreation area on the main post. In addition to the PX and Commissary there are other shops there as well. Also, the are several eating establishments in addition to the food court. There's a Denny's, Texas Roadhouse and others. Had a good stay and we will return.

Our second visit in the last four years. Remains a good park but needs a bit more grounds care to keep tree limbs from overgrowing the sites. good, conscientious management. We'll always stop here when in the area. We do wish they would accept reservations.

We've been traveling for the last five weeks and have stayed at several military FamCamps. This one rates up there with the best. Spots are concrete with good location for connections. The grounds seem well-kept. Ft Bliss facilities are awesome. Only a few things that detracted on my part - the freeway noise can be very distracting and you might need earplugs at night. Also it would be a big plus if they would put in a WiFi setup for the entire park. Thirdly, some of the sites are very long term apparently, and some rules are not followed (i.e. a motorcycle being worked on, cargo trailer with other shop items around it, dogs left in the RVs unattended). Overall though we would definitely stay here again.

This was our third visit to the Fort Bliss RV Park in as many years. Although they don't accept reservations, and the park is usually close to capacity fill, we have never had a problem getting a site. It is one of the nicer military RV parks in the country. The sites are level, concrete pull-thrus with asphalt access roads. The hookups are top notch and there is recycling on site (minus glass). Although the park is not actually on Fort Bliss, the base is only 10 minutes away where you will find a great commissary and a large shopping area (including exchange). WiFi is only available in the RV park community building, but if you are willing to stroll over there, it is dependable and fast. We would definitely stay here again when in the El Paso area.

As stated in other posts, the approach is pretty tight and caution must be exercised. Check in was easy and the staff very friendly and professional. After we were set up, we returned to the office to information on the local area. The clerk handed me my ID card that I had inadvertently left behind... Oops... We toured the Post and went through the Ironsides Museum. All of which was very impressive. The shopping available on Post is amazing. Headed for the Boarder Patrol Museum today. The Fam Camp is one of the better ones we have stayed at. It is well maintained and clean. Yes, the noise of the nearby freeway is noticeable, however it didn't keep us awake. As it is at most Fam Camps, there is some homesteading going on. Our neighbor was one of those "Homesteaders". A "Wounded Worrier" with a prosthetic leg. He had been there a little over a month. It appeared the neighbors to the other side had been there quite some time. Bottom line, there was a site available when I needed it. We will certainly stay again should we pass this way.

Wife and I enjoyed this park, and the town of El Paso. First the Cons: ENFORCE the rule to clean-up after pets have done what it is that pets need to do... it seems as though the piles that are left are from people that are walking BIG dogs - ugh, I would not want to clean up after them either, but they are your dogs, take care of them!!! Rules are Pit Bulls and Rottweiler's are restricted from the post, including the campground; but that is not the case, a Pit Bull is in the space next to us, and his owner is one of the ones that does not like to bend over and clean-up after his dog. Now the Pros: A very nice park, located very convenient to things to do in El Paso and surrounding area. The staff is cordial, and the dumpster are usually empty. There is an Express gas/convenience store right next the RV Park, and they sell Diesel at a very competitive rate. We will definitely return to this park when we are back in El Paso - hopefully the Pit Bull’s daddy will be elsewhere that weekend.

Very nice park and staff. There's much to see in El Paso area. We especially enjoyed the Border Patrol museum. We did not use restrooms/showers/laundry. However, the clubhouse/rec area room was outstanding, even exercise equipment. The wifi is extremely fast, fastest we've ever experienced in an RV park, period!!! I had a lot of big download projects to do and it was faster than our 4G Verizon jetpack! Sadly, they don't take reservations, so have plan B ready in case they are full. We called the day before they had several spaces opening the next day. Access is off base, so no ID card needed. L & J Cafe has awesome Mexican food! Looks like a hole-in-the-wall, located next to a cemetery - but the place was packed!

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. We were lucky and got the next to last spot available for the night. Seems to be some homesteaders here. All amenities were nice including the bathhouse and clubhouse. Large, clean, and level concrete spaces. Kept up very well. This is more of an urban RV park not located inside the Army base. We did hear road noise from the nearby highway. We would stay here again.

I have been here over the past few years and it seems like every time I come here that it gets worse.  This time there is a different breed of personnel staying here.  Some of them have this attitude that they can do any thing that they want to. Like driving the wrong way on one way streets, speeding (more than 10 mph), not trying to help keep things clean (like not flushing the toilet when finished), not closing the bathroom doors behind themselves, the laundry (this morning, it looked like some one dumped the trash all over the floor) and the pet area (they do not pick up after their pets, it is so bad that you have to tippy toe around so as not to step in dog doo doo).  The cleaning of the bathrooms are so so.  The shower curtains are way to short and some are not wide enough to close properly (like a narrow curtain is for a small narrow shower) which makes a mess on the floor outside the shower. They could do a much better job at it. The road noise is loud, but after being in other parks that are close to the road, it does not bother me to much. There are a lot of sites that looks like the people are set up to be permanent residents. Lot of clutter around their RV's.  This place could be one of the best military RV Parks in the system. The personnel who work here are very nice and friendly. I would have like to give it a higher rating but.

We originally planned on staying here a week but due to some family issues wound up staying four weeks.  I have mixed feelings so I'll start with the good.  The sites are cement and level with more than enough space for an RV and truck.  There is not a lot of shade with only one tree at the site, which did bloom while we were there so that helped. No issues with the utilities although the water pressure did fluctuate daily.  The laundry was fine, although the room  could have been cleaned a little better.  Now the bad, anyone who says the road noise is bearable must be deaf because you hear it everywhere and at all times of day and night.  Our first site was at the back of the park nearest to Highway 54 and even with earplugs while sleeping, it was constant.  We moved to another site half way into the park and could still hear it.  Don't expect to sleep past 5:30 because that's when rush hour begins.  The quiet hours end at 5:00 AM so that tells you the park caters to the active duty living there.  Not one of the posted rules are followed and it's obvious.  More than one resident has three vehicles along with their RV and one even had a storage trailer along with three vehicles.  Many residents have so much junk around their site it makes the place look like a base housing trailer park.  Many have outdoor refrigerators, built in stairs and cars that looked like they haven't moved in months.  Others have complained about dog poop on the grass, which is very bad, but it's not only the grass where the dog walk is but in the rocks around the park and even in the roads.  Definitely the worst military campground when it comes to people not cleaning up after dogs.  We had a neighbor that would go outside to smoke at 6:15 AM and carry on phone conversations for over an hour.  Very little consideration among the long term residents there.  The only WiFi is at the rec room and when we tried to connect we had issues.  The park has lots of potential, despite El Paso not having a lot to do, but the rules need to start being enforced before it can live up to that potential.

A fantastic park, neat and well cared for. Staff was friendly and quick in getting us checked in.  As we arrived on a Monday afternoon, there were plenty of spaces available, though I made sure to call first.  Facilities were well maintained and the bathrooms cleaned during the times posted on the doors.  Laundry room was clean and all machines were working (new side).  Even though the freeway is close, the noise wasn't too bad.  The ONLY thing that kept me from giving it 5's across the board was the lack of park wide WIFI.  Seems a required convenience these days, and I wonder why they have not yet added it.  Overall we enjoyed our stay and exploring El Paso and the surrounding environs.  Would definitely stay again when we come back this way.
