Before any other comments there are two important things reviewers need to know: 1. If you call the Navy's toll-free NAVYBEDS number for reservations, they will tell you the NAS-CC campground is closed due to COVID. That is incorrect; the campground is NOT closed. Call the extensions ending in 94 or 95 so you can speak to a person (vice voicemail greeting) and they will help you. Super friendly and supportive! 2. As other have commented, the Site B campsite is infested with ground burrs ("goat heads") that will torture your dog's feet and drive the poor thing crazy. I don't know if the burrs are seasonal or year-round, but they are definitely troublesome. Other basic things to know: The base has two campgrounds--Site A and Site B. Neither have pull-through sites; they are all back-in. Site B appears to be the more modern of the two and it is the one closest to the water. Site B has 30-amp sites and 50-amp sites. The 50-amp sites appear to have been upgraded and have nice concrete pads with full hookups. The 30-amp sites have full hookups also, but not nearly as new. Overall the entire range of MWR facilities at NAS CC are far past their prime. The campground hosts are super friendly and do their very best to keep the facilities clean and orderly, but they can't fix the roads or repair the buildings in dire need of maintenance and overhauls. We're grateful to the volunteers who provide this service. Our visit was pleasant, but we would not go out of our way to return. And that's a shame because it is obvious that this was once a wonderful place to camp and play. It only needs some TLC to return it to it's glory days. During the long weekend we were here the wind blew so hard every day no one could put up an awning. I don't know if it is always windy here along the Gulf, but it really diminished our overall experience. Of course the base and MWR can't control the weather! Be advised.
