"Off the beaten path", but if you're looking for a quiet facility in a pastoral setting, this is it. You're about 18 miles from Bodega Bay and 10 miles from Petaluma where there are nice restaurants and shopping. We came here in the worst rainstorm California has had in months, but set our rig up easily and were glad the sites are paved. Some bad news: If you camp in site #1, be aware that the fronds and small branches from the nearest trees will blow off during a wind/rainstorm and sometimes pelt your rig. We also discovered that the base dump site is closed due to some major renovations on the base, so you will have to go back into Petaluma to a Union 76 station or a KOA campground and pay to dump. Some good news - the Base theater is nice and there is a nice coffee shop in the Hub where you register for your campsite. Also, the dining hall is open to retirees - you can pick up a weekly menu at registration but you have to ask. You can also pick up the discounted 3 day Park Hopper passes for Disneyland at the Hub.
