23 - 24 February 2013

We stayed here on 23 and 24 February 13. Some might disagree but experience at military camps says this one is not worth the price. No sewer, except a dumpsite a good ways away. The utilities are on the wrong side of the trailer if you want your door to open to the side with the grass and table. The dumpsite is on the wrong side of the road to access it properly. You have to turn your whole rig around in a parking lot to access it properly and still you are parked on the left side of the road to use it. There are no showers at the park. The restrooms are not heated. As said before, there is goose poop everywhere. The CATV only works if you have a digital TV. Over seventy five percent of RVers have rigs older than 2008 when they started putting in digital TVs. The fellow at MWR is very friendly and thinks they have the latest and greatest but he doesn’t have a clue. He tried to compare them to KOA but there is no real comparison. KOA charges more but they offer much more too. The only redeeming feature is that the Wi-Fi does work pretty good. No way I will go off the road that far for so little again.

3-6 June 2011

Welcomed by rudeness upon checkin at 1630 although closing for checkin not until 1900. Sites and view was beautiful once you got passed the smell of goose droppings all over. It was like walking in a mine field and the geese took us as invaders. The rolling hills and abundance of deer and turkey was nice but lack of facilities and the stench was a turn off. No wonder it was easy getting into the CG on a half days notice. Our companion campers were the only others there. The CG is very quiet and isolated near the rear gate. I don't consider it a good value at $20 a night for 30 amp, water and WIFI when there are no showers or laundry room. The entry into the base is fairly simple as long as you have a DOD sticker and ID, otherwise you will need to fill out paperwork and get a visitors pass. The seem to take security very serious, which is a good thing. Overall we did not enjoy the experience here and would not return by choice.

13-14 May 2010

This base in a pretty country-side setting among rolling hills and farmland about 8 miles west of Petaluma. It was very quiet with deer and wild turkey roaming the area. The base is relatively isolated yet it does not have a commissary or exchange - just a small mini-mart. We came to visit Point Reyes National Seashore which is 25 miles away. There is no parking at the office in the gym - had to park at helo pad about 200 yards away for check-in. Only 6 sites, with 30 amp and no sewer. Overflow is no longer available. All 6 sites were reserved for the weekend so I had to leave after 2 days. Dining is available at the chow hall but I was a little disappointed in the quality of food. They ran out of some items halfway through serving hours. But you can't beat the price. I thought that $16 was a bit high for 30 amps and no sewer. I had just left the FamCamp at Travis where full-hookups with 50 amp and sewer and a full selection of cable TV was $17. And a large exchange and commissary were just blocks away.

No sewer connection, showers at base gym, a mile or so.
