Arrived in the early afternoon found our assigned site and got the coach leveled. Then went out to plug the power and water in. Found the 50 amp power had no power on one leg. My wife went over to the office and we were told we would have to move but in a few minutes the maintenance folks showed up and installed a new breaker. One of them told me that "this happens all the time here". Didn't...

We have stayed at Kirtland several times and we've seen numerous changes over the years. Although they do not take reservations we have never been turned away but had to stay in dry camping for one night a couple of years age at the beginning of the Oct Balloon Festival. Good power and water pressure in huge parking sites in the "new' section.It is a tad of hassle getting to the park through the Truman gate and having to...

Highly recommend using the directions rather than your GPS when coming down from I-80. The streets on base are not labeled with names. Parking while checking in can be tricky. We parked across the street in the convince store parking lot. Overall not too bad.

Called ahead around 8:30 am and was told they had three open sites. When we arrived 1.5 hours later we got the last site available. Can't add much more that has already been written. One thing that might help others. Our refrigerator has quit working and we tried to get Double T RV Service out to help. The are closed on weekends and do not come out to Fort Bliss but once a week. Couldn't find anyone else to...

Arrived in the afternoon, stopped by Outdoor Recreation which was closed(Closed Wed and Sun; Hours are 1000-1700). After doing that little dance we made our way through the maze of construction and pulled into the famcamp. Our GPS tried to takes us to another gate but we followed the directions on this page. Some sites are marked and some aren't so I knocked on a door and asked what his site was. Finally got backed into #4. They need...

We have been to Hill’s FamCamp several times and have always enjoyed our stay and this time was no exception. After an easy check in through the south gate (the SP guard asked us to turn off our dash cam) and getting registered in at the office, we got parked in space #33 with no problems. We had called several days ago to shorten our stay by one day. Debbie told us that if she rented the site for...

Stayed this time for 3 days and I’m pretty sure this will be our last. The sites are very tight and hard to get into in some cases. We were again assigned to #62 even tough I have told the staff that this one isn’t very good for big rigs. Took a lot of jinking to back in our 40’ coach. When the slides are out on the street side you are butted right up against the hedge. Driving...

This is our forth stay at Palm Oasis. Things around here have changed somewhat. (1). If you travel with pets you will be parked in the south side of the park and non-pet owners are parked in the north section. You are not allowed to walk your pet through the non-pet area. (2). We have noticed very few activities (or at least not as many) as there were the last time we were here. The bowling center snack bar...

This is our 4th say here and not much has changed since our last one. Called ahead to check if sites were available and was told no problem. I will add that the WiFi has improved since our last stay but does slow down in the late mornings and early evenings. Other than those times it’s great. Although we never use public bathrooms and showers I did a walk-through and found those in the “new” section very clean. Same...

We arrived at WSMR in the early afternoon with a reservation. Clearing the main gate is no problem. The will ask if you have a firearm so if you carry one make sure it is unloaded and the ammo is separated from the weapon. We were told by the attendant at Outdoor Recreation that it is not necessary to check in there before going to the campground if you have a reservation. Go park in an open site then...

We knew that arriving here and getting a parking spot at the famcamp this close to the start of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta would be a challenge. We called a couple of times and talked to the park host and got detailed information on what to expect upon arrival. She took our number and said she would call back when she had more info and she actually did call us later in the day. We arrived at 0800 and...

Called on the 21st to get a reservation. Was told we had site 36 but since Outdoor Recreation's computer and the Famcamp do not talk to each other, if someone is in that site check on the office door for availability. I asked about someone putting reserved signs on the sites. The young girl said that "Oh yeah, they do that". When we arrived our site was empty with no sign on it but site 37 had one. No...

We came up from Sacramento using the directions on this page rather than following our GPS and have sent the administrator updated directions. Checking in was easy and after driving around the building on the gravel road, we made it into our site with no problems. We were assigned Site F2, a long and sufficiently wide asphalt parking pad. The slope to the loop was significant but we were able to level using some shoring under the tires (don’t...

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...

Didn't stay this time. Called today for a reservation and was told that they aren't accepting reservations until 1 April. When I told the lady on the phone that I thought they accepted reservations 30a days prior to arrival she told me that due to the amount of folks already there they couldn't honor my request. Don't have a clue what the folks that are already in the park have to do with not taking a reservation. I think...
