We drove by this facility to see whet may have changed as we have reservations here in October. We were appalled at the condition of the Park. Weeds two feet tall around most sites. The park was about 50% occupied. It appears there has been NO grounds maintenance at all since the 200% price increase last year. We are considering canceling our reservations if we can find accommodations else where. The entire base is not being maintained like in...

We have stayed here many times over the past 10 years. Getting harder to get reservations as folks have discovered Gowen Field. I based my rating on our recent visit. That said, our return is highly unlikely due to the rate increase going into effect Dec 1st. Current rates are $12/$15 day depending on time of year. They are raising their rates to $38/$42 per night. That is an increase of over 200% . Gowen will no longer be...

We have stayed here Spring and Fall for the past 5 years as we transition between summer and winter camps. The directions about where to park while checking in at billeting need to be updated. What use to be a large parking area is now a new barracks and construction zone. Hard to tell if there will be enough room for an RV to park while checking in when the construction is completed. It was recommended to park in the...

The staff are all great! The overall facility is top notch! My only complaint is, why didn't they make the at least a few of the new sites longer so those of us that are just staying the night would not have to disconnect our TV from the 5er. Of course we will be back!

This is our 3rd time staying at Gowen Field. All 3 times we were met by the Billiting Staff that is very friendly and very helpful. As the others have stated, this is a great place to stop for a night, a week, or even a month. There is so much to do in and around Boise, all you need to do is look. From the zoo to the Birds of Prey to the Discovery Center to hiking the...

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...

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....

We are here for our granddaughters graduation from BMTS. There have been a lot of changes in the past 42 years when I went through Boot Camp. The only thing that I recognized was Wilford Hall the base hospital. Entry through the commercial gate is recommended I think due to the amount of traffic through the "Luke" gate. I will be egressing the commercial gate as well due to a very tight serpentine setup on the outbound side of...

We arrived on the weekend and to enter through the front gate. There is a traffic circle just inside the gate with elevated curbs so take extreme caution. Traffic was light so I was able to use both lanes with no issues. The wildlife on the base was extra special. Be sure to follow the directions to the fam-camp as the low underpass's will stop you. The office at the FC is toward the back. Stay to the right...

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...

Our GPS brought us in the back gate on the Northwest side. The guard directed us to the Fam Camp as best he could. We found the camp w/o problems and settled in. The young staff at Outdoor Rec were friendly and helpful but not experienced. The pads are concrete and mostly level. There is "grass" (don't go barefoot as there are lots of thorns) surrounding the pads as well as some trees. The water spigot needs repacked as...

A very nice wooded, rustic setting. We entered through the North gate with no issues. Fam Camp is easy to find following the signs. Access to the camp site was a bit tricky through the trees. Gravel pad was mostly level but needed one block up one side. I was unable to use satellite dish due to the trees but the tv antenna worked great to pick up local broadcasting. Lots to do in the area so was a...

The billeting folks were great! We called in for a short notice reservation for a Holiday weekend. Hoping to get a spot for that afternoon which was Friday in front of the long weekend. Jessica was able to get us in. She gave us driving directions to the Billeting office which were spot on. The park itself leaves a bit to be desired. The parking pad is concrete but the area surrounding the pad is rock which is not...

We stumbled upon this little campground by happenstance. It took a bit of maneuvering to get our 43' 5th wheel into the site. We moved the picnic table and got close to the fire pit but was able to get off the road and have to disconnect the truck. Lots of pot holes that need attention. The RV dump location has a bit to be desired as it is on the wrong side of the road as you exit....

The biggest drawback to Ft Richards Fam Camp was the layout. All sites are pull through on each side of the road which is more like parallel parking on opposite sides. There is no separation between the camp site and the road except the power pedestal. Early morning traffic (campers going to work) are rolling right past your bedroom window. The camp host was very helpful with directions around the base and provided a map of JBER. The laundry...
