GOOD & BAD! READ TO THE END! The GOOD- This is one of the nicest FamCamps I’ve stayed at. It’s brand new (about 6 months old as of this post). The sites are level, water, electric (30/50a) and sewer are all in good locations. Check-In was super fast, with very friendly staff able to answer all my questions. The map says not all sites have a picnic table, but they all do. Walking distance to the commissary, Base Exchange, class 6 and a pretty neat park across the street by the child development center. There are bathrooms with showers that are clean and nice. There is an activity room with books and games to play, a big screen TV, refrigerator and tons of brochures for local attractions. The laundry room is in the same building, also very nice. 4 washers and 4 dryers. There is an overflow parking lot in the back if you have more than one vehicle. Getting on the base is fairly easy, but there are some tight turns that bigger rigs might have trouble with. Cell reception is 100% with my AT&T phone, and I got 30+ local channels with my antenna. THE BAD- There is a bar (Sage & Sand) at the corner of Litchfield and Glendale. It’s about 1/4 of a mile away. EVERY Friday and Saturday night at 9pm they have a band that plays until 1am. It’s so loud I thought they were right outside my camper. The jet noise isn’t bad, the night flying was sucky though. Landing and taking off at 10-11pm got old fast. The last bad thing is that the sites are a little tight, you have to be ALL THE WAY to the left when parking or you will be stepping out into the rocks. It would also be nice to have a cross walk to get to the park across the street, and a turning lane to get into the FamCamp. Also they could put a nice walking path in for the back “shortcut“ to the BX. Overall a great place, the noise sucked but the rest was good. It’ll be nicer once the trees and shrubs are grown in. There’s a ton of room to make this a very nice, family friendly campground- hopefully they continue to work on it.

This should be the new standard for all Famcamps. The sites are evenly spaced with concrete parking and asphalt roads. All are FHU's with grills and concrete patios. The laundry has 3 washers and dryers (free) and the restrooms were very nice. The Commissary and BX are next to the Famcamp with the gas station one block away with Diesel. Reservations are required as they were very full when we were there. I guess the word is out that this Famcamp is excellent in location and facilities. The WIFI is not available yet but they are working toward that goal. We will stay here again.

Really a nice park. Free laundry, clean. Well kept grounds. A few long term folks here but they were usually off to work before 7. Seven o’clock is a site to heard. No reveille but a lot of jets on the taxiways, brakes on and full throttle for five minutes. The ground shakes and a few car alarms sound. This is Air Force reveille! In the evening, retreat is “right out your door”, big loud speakers mounted right next to Saguaro Skies. Weekends were very quiet except for the topless bar’s music nearby. Lots to do in the area for shopping and eating despite COVID. Club five-six on base served a Thanksgiving Brunch. Not what it was advertised. PX and Commissary very convenient. No WiFi in the park, just in the office building. A year or two out. As for directions, above. Do not turn right on W. Mustang (dead end). Instead turn on W. Falcon, follow up and over the bridge, Thunderbird. We will come back.

M.G. left this review using the Directory software: The campsite is very new. The campgrounds just open September 2019. The BX and Commissary is right behind the campground. The laundry is free and the bathrooms are clean.

Great new facility, nicely spaced sites, everything is brand new and in great condition. No shade, but they have nicely xeriscaped everything, so at least it's pretty. Customer service was outstanding. Free laundry room, also all new. Some airplane noise in morning and mid afternoon, but not horrible. The one nice thing about the location is there isn't much traffic noise. I probably won't return myself, but only because there is no access to the Phoenix bike trail system (google shows you can get there on Glendale, but it's not a safe ride). However, if you have a reason to be in the area, its a nice park at reasonable rates. No wifi except in the office - I was pretty close to the office and could not get it with an antenna.

We spent a couple days at this new FamCamp. Lance in the office greeted us and was fantastic! Being a new facility, everything was in great shape. We had made a reservation, which was easy, but wasn't necessary. There were less than a dozen RV's in the park during our stay, but the weather was still above 100F degrees. Everything worked perfectly. The restroom and showers are new and modern. The large laundry room had 3 washers and 3 dryers (with room for more), all free to use. Getting the FamCamp is a little unusual, but that's because RV's are required to use the South Gate. You then drive a little over a mile along the flight line, then across a bridge to reach the housing area where the FamCamp is located. When back in the area, we'll certainly stay here again.

Stopped by when I noticed several rvs in the park. It appears that the spaces don't leave much room on either side when an rv is parked and the patio is too small to accommodate two lawn chairs with the picnic lable and BBQ grill. With slide outs extended you will have to walk in the rocks to get around the rv.
