There is a lot of construction on the base making it close to impossible to find the campground - find one of the private MPs & get him/her to escort you. There are only 15 spaces & only a few have sewer but there is a dump. Most spaces are only 30 amp service. The washrooms are never cleaned & the grounds are never mowed (or at least in the 2 weeks we were here). The camp host is friendly & the campground is quiet & close to everything in San Antonio. There are no facilities on the base as it is "owned" by the city & most buildings are rented to private companies. The rumor has it that the campground will eventually get turned over to the city. There is a reasonably priced, convenient laundry in the washroom building. Be sure to use a water regulator as the water pressure is 90 GPM. The price is right & there is a lawn mower available to mow your own space. Be watchful for fire ants.

I did not stay here; I just drove through checking it out. The spaces are very far apart, so you do get your privacy, which is a plus for me. It did not appear to be trashy, just old and run down a bit. But it did appear livable. The base is a mixture of military (very few) and civilian (mostly). There are guards at the gate, so you do need to show ID. It appears there is military housing on this base, though I am not 100% sure. Right outside the Base, is a fairly good size shopping center, so you can get whatever is that you need; WalMart is right outside the gate, as well as fast-food facilities, pet stores, and shopping. The guard at the gate was very helpful, in giving me directions out to the FamCamp. It is out of the way, on the perimeter of the base, but secluded and quiet. The pond that is catch & release for fishing, looks to me to be not very healthy. I don't think I would fish there, even it is catch & release only; I wonder why it is designated as "catch & release?" I would probably stay here for an overnight stay, while waiting to get in somewhere else.
