I was at Fallon a couple years ago and it was a disaster, I see they have expanded, has anyone stayed there lately? It used to be hard to get a spot, what about now? There are no recent reviews, so I was hopeing someone might give me an update.
Thanks
Frank

Frank, we have never stayed there but I did call them last week to ask if reservations were necessary mid April and the man told me that we shouldn't need them but if I wanted to we had to do it 45 days in advance..... Also I guess its in walking distance of the NEX. The wewbsite that I went to (and I can't find it again) shows an area that looks like a parking lot, tight spaces...
Will submit review after our stay
When were you planning on going?

We are planning on early April, however this is subject to change as medical tests may delay our departure from Nellis

FrankandSandy,

Aloha to you neighbor! Our friends Don and Char stayed at Fallon last year after leaving Nellis. They had no problem getting in. They said the FamCamp was nice and everything was not too far away. They even had the grandchildren come and stay with them off and on, so the sites had to be spacious enough for them to B-B-Q :)

Hope when you travel, it's on a cool day out of the desert! Have a good one!

Stay Healthy and Safe!

Glad to see that Falon has cleaned up their act. We were going to go thru there, however we are now planning on going thru Calif to stop and visit friends and family in Chico area. We are still getting our Dr and Dental work done and hope to have it all completed by mid April. Its really nice to see you out more lately. I'm sure you feel the same.

I called yesterday for reservations and the man told me they were having a "water" problem. He felt it would be fixed by the time we get there on the 22nd but you might want to call if going now. 775 426-2598
Also remember if you get there on the weekends or night you have to call security for entrance and go to the south gate.

I just talked to MWR at Fallon, asking for availability and they said they do take reservations up to 45 days for retired. Also they informed me to use the South Gate for entry with an RV, if I arrive after 5:00 PM (1700 for us) to call 775-426-2803 for security to open the gate.
I will try to get more updated info and pictures when I get there.

Was just at Fallon again and left a review with my complaints and concerns. This CG is about three years new, and clean and with nice wide and open spaces. My biggest concern is the idiot that installed the new water access valves. They are in ground, with the lid cut in half, and one side attached with screws. This would not be bad if you could reach the valve, but it isn't. The valve handle has a water heater rod sticking up thru the middle of the valve wheel, and to be able to turn the valve you have to be very contorsional. Extreemly awkard, and difficult to get to. The couple in space 8 could not open their valve more than about 1/2 a turn, mine in space nine would open 8 turns.
For other concerns read the review I posted.
Fallon gets an "F", for this design and overall CG management they get a "C". It is a poorly run CG period.

Maybe anyone camping at Fallon should ask the camp host or maint. personnel for help with hooking up and turning on the water. If they have the same problem and are continually having to help campers with this task, it may change.

We stayed there last year and on a scale of 1 to 5 I would give it a 3.
Its like a large parking lot, and lots of space but it's just a parking lot.
I liked that you could walk to the commissary and Px. They are small but adequate
I liked the free washers and dryers, they were awesome
The movie theater is also right there, LOL, heck it's a small base, everything is right there.
When we came in you couldn't come in the main gate, had to go around to the back and call the MPs to open the gate, but they were johnny-on-the- spot and we didn't even have to call them when we left as they saw us heading that way. I don't know if thats still true. Just in case take the phone number with you.
