Another very nice stay at the Academy FamCamp. This continues to be our favorite FamCamp. I did not do reviews, but we had two good stays last year as well as the one this year. The facilities continue to be maintained well. We do notice there's less grass around the campground each year. Don't know if there's been less rain in recent years or what. In 2012 they had planted grass plugs throughout the...

A rating for a stay that was cancelled, and an update on directions to the FAMCAMP. Due to a freezing weather event Labor Day week, the base shut off all water and sewer at the FAMCAMP. On F.E. Warren, once they shut water down they leave it off until the next spring. When we called the week before our planned arrival the staff was very informative about the conditions and when we said we wanted to cancel...

As we and others have said, this is our favorite FAMCAMP. We had two good stays this summer. The staff appeared to take the required COVID protections seriously and conducted themselves well. The staff did a good job of letting everyone know of water disconnecting needed prior to a Labor Day week freeze event. They did not do quite as well advising about a water outage for repairs on the west side of the park the...

There is no quick and easy way to get from the freeway to Ft. Harrison. You’ll have to go through city streets and neighborhoods. Getting onto the installation is easy enough, but takes a few minutes. The guard who let us in the north gate gave us a treat for each of our dogs. He also confirmed the reason for using the north gate is the security barricades at the main gate are too tight to let anything large...

We’ve stayed here numerous times and love the park. It’s rustic, but that’s fine. Water/Electric/Sewer are good. Sites are well packed gravel. What hurts this FAMCAMP is lack of anything like competent management. There’s always some kind of issue with reservations and managing them. The site next to us has 50 & 15 Amp receptacles only. Twice this week they tried to put small/30 Amp trailers into the site. There have been several other site mixups this week. Cheryl...

Another fairly good stay. We always enjoy coming here, but as with other FAMCAMPS we’ve visited in the last year or two, maintenance seems to be slipping. There were several campsites out of service for at least a week. The camp is becoming less dog friendly. There used to be quite a few dog bag stations with trash cans attached to them. There are only a couple of stations now and all the attached trash cans have been removed....

Our first visit to this FAMCAMP, but probably not our last. As others have said getting to the campground can be a challenge. We called a few days before arrival and were provided good directions, but they ended up being difficult to follow due to lack of signage on post. After learning our way around the post we chose to depart via a different route/gate. Some of the roads on Ft. Sam are horrendous! The staff were friendly and...

Another wonderful stay! Peregrine Pines is our favorite FAMCAMP and we try to spend time here every summer. This was our eighth stay since 2012 and the staff has managed to get us into a great and satellite friendly site every time. Even though they are loud we actually like the trains. Unfortunately the prices went up this year (again). The prices are still far lower than nightly rates in nearby commercial parks, but compared to commercial park monthly...

I used to travel to Ft. Huachuca for work and have wanted to get Cheryl there and to Apache Flats for years. we're glad we finally made it. A great park in a great place run by a caring staff. All utilities were good and the concrete pads are level. The sites are good sized but maneuvering through the campground is a touch tight for a 40' MH. Like many parks in this part of the country there's not...

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.

Crow Creek is our second favorite FAMCAMP (right behind the AF Academy). If you want resort amenities this is not the place for you. If you want a nice, quiet place to relax and visit the area Crow Creek is wonderful. There are train tracks nearby, but the trains are few and never loud. Water and sewer were still on while we were there, but it's always best to call ahead and check after mid-September even if you don't...

Possibly our favorite FAMCAMP. If our schedule would allow it, we'd spend a full 30 days here every summer. We've had ups and downs here, but both recent visits were great. FAMCMAP staff were great. Even if rates go up to $30 per night it's still a great value for this area. We find the newly renovated North Gate easier to maneuver through with our 40Ft Motorhome, towing. However, since it's the visitor entrance, the line at North Gate...

We almost did not come here because of some of the earlier negative reviews.  We're glad we came, this is now a great Famcamp.  We reserved and paid over the phone a couple of months in advance, so no additional check-in needed.  The camp host met us at our site as we pulled in and helped us position. She saw our dogs and pointed out the dog bag/waste station locations and showed Cheryl good walking areas. Our pull-through site...

This was our fist time back at Camp Meade since 2011.  W/S were adequate, electric marginal.  Sadly, it continues to be a wonderful facility hampered by poor management at its office and, I suspect, poor support from post leadership.  Several of the people at the Famcamp office (at the entrance to the camp) admit freely they've never been into the campground!  There are a few great people in the office too. The percentage of long-term residents has grown since...

Great Famcamp.  W/E/S all solid.  Our 40' MH fit well in the assigned site. The campground was pretty empty during most of our stay, but nearly full over the weekend.  The Rec Office staff told me they stay pretty full after Memorial Day.  For those who don't have an RV, at both the new and the older areas they have pretty amazing "cabins" that go all the way up to five bedrooms if I remember correctly.  The Cheatham Annex...
