Arrived today with no reservations, and there were several FHU sites available. All facilities appear to be clean & well-maintained. PX is on the smallish side, but has the basics. Commissary is large, very nice, and well stocked. No clubs, separate or combined, on this base. The community center seems to serve that purpose. In fact, MWR has a very strong presence on this base. Sharon, the campground manager, is very helpful and knowledgeable on everything in this area. If you want to know where to go and how to get there, just ask. Regarding internet access, there is WIFI, if you're close to the office. We use the Sprint wireless broadband card, so local access isn't an issue. However, for other such users, be advised that, while the Sprint signal is strong, there is no EVDO here. You still get internet on the card, but at a reduced broadband speed. A pleasant surprise is that the military dining hall here allows retirees to use the facility. This is a perk that has been rapidly disappearing at most CONUS bases, thus the pleasant surprise. All in all, it seems like a great springtime destination.
This campground is well managed and the hostess is very efficient, friendly and helpful. Many activities are held in the rec room and they are well attended. Showers and laundry are super clean at ALL times. Close to commissary, PX, and other facilities. Nearby Sierra Vista is military friendly and people helpful. Beautiful Huachuca Mountains just south of campground, hiking is great. This is one of the old forts and the museum is very informative.
This fam-camp needs at least 15 r/v sites for shortstay visitors. Its impossible to visit with out resevation which is next to impossible since the same people always occupy the same sites every year for the whole winter making it impossible for anyone else to enjoy their priveleges, which is totally unfair to all others.
