Our arrival at the famcamp did not go smoothly, it took a long time on a hot afternoon to have one of the outdoor recreation staff members to arrive to open the office, not the member who had posted the sign about to call him on the door. We were given three sites to choose from, except one was occupied but not noted on the status board. We did not want the site in the trees and chose the end...

Parks & Recreation office is now in control of this famcamp. In 2013 the office will open at the campground in the largest building, known as Greer's Palace, with hours 9-9 Mon thru Sunday, closed on federal holidays. We called the 800# and was referred to (315) number. We were assigned spot #8 with credit card information. Went directly to the site. Sites 7-10 are huge. Open fires are permitted. We have never found that on another famcamp. Office has...

We showed up with no reservation on a Wednesday afternoon. Our surprise was that the office at Bass lake was closed for the winter on last Oct 21. After looking at the map posted on the door, we made our way to building 95, Outdoor Rec, on the main part of the base. The cargo trailer with the "Rent Me!" sign made it easy to locate. The cost was $125 whether it was for 5/6/7 nights. We had only passed...

We were not sure of our arrival time so my wife called the lady in the office who informed us that there would be room and about the gate locations and closing time. We managed to enter through Gate 26A and locate the fam camp quite easily. There is a binder in the laundry room with plenty of information. We did not do laundry because 2 of the three washers were not working. After dinner out in town we found...

We spent one night here on our way to the east coast. We stayed in the West section, the older section of the fam camp. I rated the facilities a three because the bathrooms and laundry have not been upgraded after the number of sites have been significantly expanded. Doreen, the night host, site 25, advised us that the Gibson gate has been changed to being open 24 hours and the Wyoming gate closing at 1900. I am not sure...

We arrived without a reservation because we were traveling and not knowing when we would stop for the night. We went through a heavy rain between Page and Flagstaff, which caught up to us just after we finished our hookups. There was a full length Class A just across from us, so big rigs can be accommodated. If you own one I would definitely recommend that you call for reservations. We had 30 amp service. While walking through the campground...

There are still problems with the office staff returning phone calls. I called Friday morning, June 22, for a reservation. According to JR the computer was busy, could he call back after requesting the type of RV. That was fine. No call back any time on Friday. A call on Saturday afternoon was answered by answering machine, promising a return call. When no call back came on Monday we changed destinations to a RV park in state, staying four days...

On a Saturday arrival, after hours, we had 6 or 7 pull through and 2 back in sites available, so no overflow this trip. The only complaints I have are the slowness of the Wi-Fi and lack of a community/family room. The DSL and dialup connections in the office are nice but not always convenient. The fastest WiFi that I found was at the community center. The FamCamp should have those people over to overhaul their WiFi. An automated pet...

We Arrived after hours on Friday and followed the written instructions for late checkin. We were right about the dog enjoying the grassy area, which are well maintained in the winter. The only markdown comes because of no map to the bathroom and Wanda seen us outside the RV as she rode her handicap scooter to get her mail but failed to come over to introduce herself. We wonder if we stayed an extra day without paying if Bob &...

We returned to the FamCamp after a seven month absence. My previous comments about not being to keep your cargo trailer on (W/E) sites have been changed, so the rating has been raised from 3 to 5 accordingly. The shower floors are still in the same condition so they remain a 3. The January ice/snow storm that hit the Seattle area did massive tree damage here. Roy is working hard daily to have the camp restored to its beautiful appearance...

We wanted to see Mount Rushmore before heading to the west coast so we stayed here. I would highly recommend this FamCamp for anybody wanting to see the local attractions. This base is small but well laid out. This is the first base I have seen that has the Exchange, Commissary, Credit Union, Burger King, Library and theater all in the same area. The theater surprised us with 99 cent movies. You don't mind the regular concession prices when the...

I enjoyed our stay at this famcamp. The reason that I marked Cleanliness down was because both the men's and women's showers need funds invested into them for upgrading. The floor in both need work. Also the women's has problem draining. The Facilities were marked down because we were not allowed to keep our 8 foot tag along trailer on our site, or within sight. As a 20' long van we need the extra storage. The two combined equal 30...

This was our first visit. We are impressed. Every staff member we dealt with was knowledgeable and friendly. If you travel with one or more dogs this fam camp has a wonderful dog park, the best we have seen on a military base. We spent the first night in overflow then three days in a full hookup site. The rotation policy is very fair to everybody. While I was in the office using the DSL a camper tried to bully...

We spent one night here while getting medical attention at the nearby hospital. The just opened bathroom/laundry complex are outstanding. The six bathroom/shower units are unisex, so who gets there first does less walking. The new laundry contains a deep sink, five washers and dryers. What makes it unique is the inclusion of a commercial large capacity washer and dryer, which is capable of washing your quilts and/or sleeping bags. I received WiFi from inside the motorhome with no problem...

This is our third visit here. If you are traveling on I10 east or west of if you have business with Fort Bliss or Beaumont Army Hospital this is a very centrally located RV park. It has always been clean and well kept. The staff is cordial. Today I was told the expansion will open November 19th. It looks very close to be being done at this time.
