The camp is divided into what appears to be and old and new section. The older area has some shade trees while the new can best be described as on open gravel lot. Each has it's pros and cons. We stayed in the old section so have more familiarity with it. This section appeared to be designed by someone who never owned a travel trailer. One out of the four rows of sites are angled pull through. Two more rows require a 90 degree turn to get into but are pull through. The final row is a 90 degree back in style. Hook-up are haphazardly placed in the sites at times requiring long runs of water, electric and sewer to connections. In our case, we had to pull our camper completely through the space, unhook and then park behind it. The sewer connection extended about 6" above the ground inevitably leaving a sag in the hose. Some adjoining spaces were paved while ours was (uneven) gravel requiring leveling blocks under one side of the camper wheels. Some spaces have the benefit of shade trees but that's not the case with every site. The bath house was disappointing to say the least. Men's room consisted of two urinals, one toilet stall and one shower. Women's restroom had three toilet stalls and one shower. All the fixtures were old, worn/broken and rather dirty. The floor had been painted long, long ago with your standard military grey paint and really needed to be cleaned and repainted. Luckily we're self contained so we didn't need to use the shower as it was in a word - grimy. I understand that money can be tight with MWR facilities but a though cleaning doesn't cost a lot. The new section of the camp has four rows of angled entry pull-through spaces. Hookups were placed in the middle of the spaces making it easier to connect to with all but the largest rigs. Additionally, there is a row of back-in spaces. We didn't check out the bath house in the new section but hope it's being maintained better than the old one. Overall the impression we had is that while this FamCamp may be Ok for an overnight stop it's not a "destination". Some of the issues would require considerable time and money to correct. Others (cleaning / repairing broken hardware / leveling sites) appear to be simple neglect. Note they raised their rates from $25 to $30 a night even though their web page still states the lower rate. Perhaps the extra income will be directed to fixing some of the issues.
