We never saw Kenny but Cynthia in the office is very friendly and helpful. They no longer have the weekly rate, it's $20 a day, period. The library on base (we walked there every day that it was open) is wonderful, small, but they said they will be enlarging it soon. Each person with ID card is allowed 5 books and 2 DVDS and there are also books on tape. They have a nice selection of...

Stayed overnight while passing through. What a NICE park! Grounds are kept up nice. Got to use our Golden Access Pass on a $17.50 site making it only $15 a night. There are old sites and new sites. We were lucky to get one of the 2 remaining new sites. Nice big cement slabs with a lot of room between campsites. Had a nice new picnic table and there was a fire pit with wood to use (had we...

We arrived at 4pm and the office was already closed. Didn't quite know what to do about picking a campsite but we found some campers outside and asked them and they just told us to pick a spot and go to the office in the morning to pay. That worked. There were many available campsites to pick from and we got a pull through in the Battleship Row. The campground is rather run down looking but...

This is just an outstanding campground! Signage is great but it would be difficult to see at night as its awfully dark. Even though they don't take reservations, I called the morning we were coming and the man on the phone told me he'd place a cone in the campsite for us. Sure enough, we got here and we got the last full hook up site. He even told us someone else came before us and...

We liked this campground but it was VERY difficult to find. They turned us away from the main gate and made us come in the Montgomery Gate which is FAR away from the RV park. There is absolutely no signage and we got lost several times. It's best by FAR to come in the Rio gate as the RV park is literally right inside the gate. When we finally found it, we were very pleasantly surprised...

We liked this campground but as everyone else says, it takes quite a while to jockey a 5th wheel into a campsite, especially if a truck is parked in front of the trailer across from you, as happened in our case. We're full timers and the only experience worse than this, getting into a spot was at Panama City NSA. The BBQ grill at our site had rusted at the base and actually fell over while we there--glad...

This is a great RV park. We had reservations for 2 weeks but were able to extend. We were right on the water, which was so pretty. They have signs that there are alligators present but we never saw one and people were always fishing. They have a nice library and we were able to get library cards BUT there are no DVDs at this library, only VHS tapes. Charlie really is wonderful. Everyone was...

We liked this RV park. Everything seemed to be off base, the RV park, the commissary, the BX, the movie theater, etc but everything is in close proximity. We were not allowed to get a library card at this base. The free movies at the theater was a nice bonus. My husband did NOT have to show his ID, which seemed odd to me, since it's off base. They have a thrift shop, which we...

Although the lake is pretty, we weren't able to get a waterfront spot HOWEVER we got charged the rate for a waterfront spot. Signage is good getting TO the RV park but after you get there you're on your own. We had to ask a camper where we were supposed to go as we arrived after hours. Security told us to go pick our site and he'd be by shortly to remove the lock from the electric...

We liked this RV Park. It's quiet and roomy. The laundry room is with the bathhouses but it's not marked. It's the last door on the left side of the building. It's air conditioned and really pleasant inside. I brought a chair and my laptop while I was waiting for my laundry to finish. Two washers/two dryers at 75 cents each. We loved the beach access within walking distance. There are many...

The check-in at the RV office is very organized but make sure you have your RV proof of insurance handy because they want that to make a copy of. First time we've ever been asked for that to camp. I thought the $37 a day fee was quite high. We didn't use the pool or any of the other activities that go along with the passes they give you or it might have been a better bargain....

I guess I don't understand why others rated it so highly. We obviously missed the "great staff" experience as the young girl that checked us in was discussing her personal life with a co-worker the whole time she waited on us. When I interrupted her to ask questions, she was friendly enough. We were in #2 in Cedar and it was one of the few campsites NOT on the lake. It was roomy enough but situated...

Jim and Barb no longer host here. There is an interim host by the name of Harry but he is leaving soon. Really nice guy. At $8.50 a night this place is a real bargain, but VERY quiet. Seemed like a lot of empty trailers as we rarely saw anyone else. Two washers/dryers and they're FREE. A nice little clubhouse with a book/magazine/puzzle exchange and a microwave to use. The little px on...

We enjoyed this FamCamp. As the others have stated, the FamCamp office staff is wonderful. The RV park was only about half full when we were here. As another reviewer said, books, CDs, VCR tapes and DVDs can be checked out at the library (which is close by) even if you're not locals. The librarian was truly nice and very helpful. The DVD limit is 6 per sponsor's family and they have a HUGE collection....

We liked this FAM Camp. The staff were just so-so--didn't seem real interested in helping, but not rude either. We got a pull through right near the laundry room and clubhouse, which was nice. There was a nice sized book/magazine exchange and computers to use, if you need them. There were lots of empty sites while we were here. There are only two washers in the laundry room, so they stay pretty busy.
