We have stayed there 4 times now. It's frequently on our route from A to B and just convenient. The base is great and easy to get on and off (well - you have to get the gate guards to move the anti-tank barriers so you can get off the base with a large rig- but they are nice and do it pretty quickly. It's the folks that pile up behind you who get grumpy) First - a site with full hook-ups is $20/night. Can't beat that at all. Nice paved walking/running trails that run right by the Fam Camp and that's wonderful. 15 minutes to Costco and In-N-Out Burger. What more could you want? Goat Heads galore. Your dogs, shoes and carpet will be full of them. It appears that they are beginning to think about getting them under control. Twice now, someone else has been in our reserved site. They reluctantly and slowly moved to their appropriate site, but this appears to be a clerical problem. The office staff is nice and the camp host are very nice, but the office staff is frequently not around to fix the problems - such as someone being in your site. The paved pull through sites are a little close together, but not a big deal. We usually only stay a night or maybe 2. The camp is slowly but surely being kept up, put back in order, updated - hard to say. It really is fine. There's a new manager and I think he is trying to get things squared away. The laundry is clean and spacious. Internet only in the office area. (But really, we should not expect to be provided internet). We will continue to use this Fam Camp and are very glad it's available.

Sept 29 - Oct 1 2017

First visit to the campground and overall experience was excellent. The only reason for an overall 4 star review was the proximity of the campground to a major road with lots of traffic noise well into the evening. We had a late arrival (after dark). Our campsite was blocked off by road cones to prevent someone from taking our reserved site. The camp hose greeted us within 10 minutes of arrival to make sure we were the one's who had reserved the site. He also offered to stay in his four wheeler with his lights on to aid in us hooking up, but we respectfully declined as we had plenty of trailer lights for hookup. The campground has undergone recent renovations and is in really nice shape. There are both back-in and pull through sites. All sites are paved and level and appear to have plenty of room for both trailer and pull vehicle. Some sites have shade, others do not. There are grassy areas between sections of campsites, along with a nice fenced dog run area. I was not able to get a WIFI signal at my campsite, but did not try it at the campground office area. Additionally, I did not try any of the other amenities such as the bathrooms or laundry, but there were several people using these amenities throughout the day. Overall, this is a great campsite to use as a base to explore the Salt Lake City/Wasatch Front area.

First time at the Hill AFB FamCamp. Overall I am impressed. Nice little dog break area. Level spots. Nice Shade. Well maintained and camp hosts are always out doing their jobs. Close to all major highways. Wifi available in the Rec Room.

I've been staying at this Fam Camp many times over the years. I never had a problem with Howard. The young lady currently running the Camp is doing a great job, always available. The Camp Hosts Terry and Debbie were great and helped me get a two day extension when the day I was to leave I experienced problems with my MH. Terry directed me to a retired Marine in the Camp who works on RV's. After having Scott check over my MH we found that the 4 6 volt house batteries were in real bad shape. I drove down the road and bought 4 new batteries from Sam's club and Scott installed them for me. After checking everything we found that I was good to go the next day. Love the improvements in the old area. Too bad there is a 14 day stay limit. Scott really needs to be able to stay, he's helped a lot of folks with RV problems. I had to force him to take money for helping me out.

June 20 -24, 2017

As stated below, the FamCamp is open for business. We arrived on the 20th and departed on the 24th. Howard is no longer the campground host, but still works for the base/FSS and is supposed to take care of things like the bathhouse – we’ll be watching! A new host is hired, but was not yet on duty while we were there. The young lady in the office is, unfortunately about to PCS, so it remains to be seen what will happen once she departs. Again, as stated below, the rest of the Famcamp was clean and well maintained – trees were being trimmed along the back of the back-in sites while we were there. New washers and dryers. $1.00 per load. Internet was very poor – a common trait among most FamCamps we have visited. John

The camp opened for the season on June 1, 2017. We arrive on the 2nd and departed on the 8th. It was Friday night and the after-hours check-in had maps and site assignments, but no code for the bathrooms or laundry. Sign says to seen the office on Monday to get these. Better hope you have some nice neighbors willing to give out the numbers or it could be a long weekend. Same thing with the internet. The flyers have the wrong password printed on them. Again Monday at the office. The bathroom and showers never got cleaned. The Lady in the office was very nice and knew of the situation. She said she knew it hadn't been cleaned and was wondering just how bad it was. It was bad! Other than that the rest of the Famcamp was clean and well maintained. New washers and dryers. $1.00 per load. Internet was very poor.

May 2016 and Dec 2016

We have stayed here twice as we passed through. First time someone was in our spot. So they moved us. Then they decided that was a bad idea and made us wait while they made the guy in our original spot move out. (He knew he was supposed to leave but opted not to...got mad....it was awkward to say the least and the clerk was not terribly good at making it right). Second time we arrived in Dec. to snow on the ground. They plowed the roads in the park but not the sites. Ice under snow made set up difficult and walking in the site was hazardous. (Yes, they had time to plow the roads and the sites that had folks coming in that night). It's very clean. It's cheap. Great commissary and BX. Easy to get to, but the entrance to the base is a BEAR unless you can get in the South gate. Fitness center right across the street. We'll go back.... Just be aware that the staff is not always attentive to what needs to be done.

You can't beat the price of any famcamp and the location is usually pretty good - Hill offers all that. The campground, however, is overgrown with goatheads (thorn-like weeds) and an interesting configuration of slots. The newer area is on paved ground, but the sites are sister sites, which means you may be seeing your neighbor more than you would like (but you don't have to look at their hoses). The older section is on gravel and made up of back-in and forward facing in every different direction. Amenities are great: there is a full size track right next to the campground, a park, a splash park and soccer field also adjacent on opposite side of campground. Laundry and dryer is $1.50 per load. A beautiful gym facility is across the street, it has free classes and an indoor pool. The commissary and exchange are standard; there is a Firestone Car Service at the gas station, so if you need to get your car serviced while at the camp, it's an easy walk back to wait. Also, and this is pretty big (I think), the library allows you to check out materials with your ID card! There is a mall close by, Super Target, Costco, and tons of places to eat and drink. Cleanliness of the camp is OK. The laundry area was clean and has an ice machine, but the bathroom was so-so. The goatheads were really terrible - there are so many that we had to have 4 bike tires replaced. You want to use the SOUTH GATE ENTRANCE off Exit 334. This will put you right at the famcamp. The west gate is too small! Finally, if your RV needs service while in the area, go to Charlie's Service in Sunset. It's only 10 mins away and they do amazing work. (We drove through the west gate, hit our awning, dented the body and were there an additional week getting work done at Charlie's!).

We stayed here in 2012 and not much has changed. This time however, Eddie was in the office and all too happy to take care of our needs. The In-check process seemed a bit extensive but perhaps that will ease the pain next time we stay. Another change was the use of orange road cones that were marked as either available or reserved. I'm certain that helps with people arriving after hours. We were only there overnight and did not use any of the available amenities. There seemed to be a lot of spaces available. We did notice what appeared to be a few homesteaders but not too bad. Great place for an overnight stop or even an extended stay to take in the local attractions.

Opinions will depend on site. We were next to the track and had a very small towable for a neighbor so it was more open. A big rig next door would have made it very cramped. No privacy between sites alternating door-to-door and 6-foot gravel divider. Very nice office staff. Convenient to I-15 and base facilities. Laundry was clean and inexpensive (although dryers are too hot). Antenna-TV worked very well. Utilities were good. NOTE: directions are wrong! Do not use GPS coordinates for RV Gate - they're 30 miles off! (Editors note - gate coordinates have been corrected.) Installation coordinates are right. Coming from I-15, gate is 1.5 miles (not 3) and the turn is the 4th light only if you count the light at the off ramp. It's the only 2-lanes-turning-left turn, easy to spot. Stay to left, turn left at light onto Balmer (about 40 feet from gate, not 150). Park rigs in gravel lot next to office while registering.

I made reservations 2 months in advance for 2 nights. We arrived after the office closed and went straight to the office. Found my site assignment, but couldn't find the site. Numbering of sites is very confusing. On my second trip around the campground the host stopped me and led me to my site. My motorhome would not fit on the site. She found another site and told me I could only stay one night and have to leave the next morning. We pulled nose first into the site and had to move the RV 2 times so that I could get the power cord to reach the pedestal because it was on the opposite side of the RV. We had to run the water and electrical under the RV, but thankfully the sewer connection was on the correct side. The sewer connection was tapered and my connection would not fit? We ended up just about 24 inches from the RV in front of us. Our front door faced our neighbors front door. No privacy what so ever. This is by far the worse campground I have ever stayed in.

My first time to Hill. I showed up without a reservation and the place was booked solid. But they put me in overflow with water and 30 amp service . I needed an extension on the electric, which they provided at no charge. I was glad for the spot and everyone was very helpful.

I've been coming to this camp for over 12 years, and each time I am more and more disappointed. I use to love coming here where it was well maintained, and groomed with pride. Now it is over run with weeds that haven't been trimmed. Sewer line back ups, and a very sketchy at best wifi connections. Almost all base recreational facilities have cut back hours. I will next time pay the extra amount for a commercial campground that has wifi, cable, a lounge and a pool.

Only stayed one night after not making it to Boise due to windstorms in Wyoming. Called ahead and got reservation set up with the gentleman at the MWR office got everything set up for us, including access codes for laundry, bathrooms and wifi. (We never used the site facilities, but everything around the FamCamp looked clean and tidy.) After arriving in the rain I can understand the confusion with how the sites are numbered. Site 8 sits next to site 24, as they are configured like zipper-teeth. Your utilities between sites mean you have to do a bit of maneuvering to get your rig positioned, but it wasn't inconvenient even when flat-towing because all sites are pull-thru. Water pressure was very good, OTA TV picked up the usual suspects, including BYUtv sport channel, so I didn't bother with the dish. Sprint & AT&T both had great reception, but we used the base wifi instead. As noted there was no shade trees on our loop, and my wife thought the spaces were a bit narrow, although I felt they were average for a full concrete pad site. We look forward to staying here again when we head to Vegas and Phoenix.

Had a spot in the new section (westside of famcamp). Nice large paved, pull-thru. However, you want to make sure your pull-thru faces west--that might provide you some shade if you have an awning. We faced southeast and could never get any shade and it was very HOT during our stay. There are no trees in the new section. The older section of the camp had trees but it appeared the spots were confusing--never could figure out where the spots were. Famcamp nicely located right next to base gym, walking trail and a track with soft surface. Also next to a large picnic area that had a small water park for kids. Never used the bathroom/shower facilities. Laundry was in good condition (4 washers/4 dryers). Wifi only available at the office but they had a nice large room with tables/desks, sofa chairs where you could use the wifi. Nice golf course--in good shape. Heard lots of F-16s--some night flying going on. No problem for us--it is an Air Force base after all.

There are no signs directing you to the famcamp. I mean none at all. When arriving at the camp there are no signs directing you to the building to register and then the host is only available at certain times 0900-1100AM and 1:00-3:00PM. If you arrive between those times you just wait. They tell you a site when you register but in my case they changed the # of the site so if I would have set up then I would have had to move. They tell you they don't change the site #'s but they do. A lot of the campground was not designed for big rigs and the water hoses and sewer hoses run under around and over everywhere. The host is not helpful and don't get out and talk with the campers. We didn't use the restrooms or the washer areas so we won't rate that. The new part of the campground is great. It is level and very big spaces.

Nice campground, very friendly and helpful host. Definitely recommend reservations. The sites are long and level. Only complaint, there does not seem to be any speed limit posted in the FamCamp. Don't think anyone did under 20 mph. There are children and pets to consider. Know that most do not follow the limit signs, but it would help. Was told upon check-in, Wifi only worked at camp office. This was really inconvenient and we were forced to use our "hotspot". Not sure if this is a permanent problem or temporary. Tip: When entering the base on Southgate, first left, then take first drive past the park. Camp office is located at the end of the drive. Second drive takes you directly in the camp, but you still must register at the office.

Bad first - Only thing that is really poor is the wifi. Getting bumped off 8 times in an hr is ridiculous especially when I'm sitting 10 feet from the comm equipment. It is so bad, having no wifi would be better, IMO. At least then you would know you have to use a fast food joint (or something else) for connectivity. Now to the good; really nice grassy/shady/fenced off leash dog area. I just wish everyone would use the provided items to clean up after their dogs. At least most people do. Good water pressure. Wide loop road. My site was concrete, some are gravel. Good antenna tv reception. There are a couple sites that are drive in/back out, so you are nose to nose with the coach opposite you, but I saw only 4 sites like that. My site was well away from the road, so no road noise. Those closer to the road may have a different experience. As for getting here, if you're on I-15, I strongly suggest using Exit 331, then head east. That exit is Hill Field Rd. When you head east, it takes you straight to the South Gate. No muss, no fuss, no turns, no counting traffic lights. I would stay here again if in the newer section. No shade, but I like the concrete pads better than gravel. I had no problems maneuvering my 40' fifth wheel and long bed dually. It was a little tight parking the truck on the pad with the coach, but I made it.

This is our fourth (4th) consecutive year staying here and I must say we have been extremely pleased with everything and everyone at the Hill AFB FamCamp. They have made some minor mistakes and so have we, but we have been able to work through these minor (I'm even reluctant to call them problems) 'glitches' agreeably. IF a problem arises, I recommend talking to the Manager or Camp Host IMMEDIATELY. DON't let things drag out, because doing that just gets you madder, and the FamCamp staff has no idea there is a problem. It's simple COMMUNICATION - talk to them, be willing to give them a little, and I guarantee they will give you a lot in return. I'm not talking money here, they can't change the prices, but it's just as simple as 'If I treat you with respect, I expect to treated the same way in return'. No 'back-scratching', just as simple as the Golden Rule. Admiral Jack and the AZ KC Crew.
