Called ahead for reservation so got a good site. All roads and RV sites were level and paved and grounds were manicured. Staff very friendly and they introduced us to the U.S.A.F. Frequent Campers program. The museum was by far one of the best we visited and for all you history buffs, this is a must!
I arrived on a Sunday and had much difficulty locating a gate opened. Finally was directed to 15A where I was issued pass in the gatehouse. Gave me map of base. Bass Lake Rec Area few miles from commissary etc. Sites paved, nice bathhouse w/showers and laundry. Quiet, no mosquitoes. I parked in site 6, next to shower facilities. Several sites with only w/e were empty, but all with sewer were taken. Strongly advise calling before weekend for directions to open gate if unfamiliar w/base. Spoke with another traveler who had same trouble. Would like to have stayed longer.
We had reservations and were instructed the office is open 11:00 till 14:00. Our site number was posted on the office door and the site had an orange pylon denoting it was reserved. The campground was extremly clean and well maintained. The sites were paved and level. Our only reget was that we were there for overnight only and did not have the time to stay longer. Will definitely use the campgound again.
I would rate the management as marginal. While I was there they were preparing for a POW/Son Tay raid vets gathering. They had most of the RV sites blocked off all week prior to the gathering, leaving them empty for that time. With the office only open several hours a day and no on site host there is the possibility of non-payment and other problems.
