The camp host cornered my 10 year old and 5 year old sons in the bathroom and screamed at them for being too loud after quiet hours. He frightened them very much. I heard the yelling and crying (yelling from him and crying from the boys) and came in to investigate. He proceeded to scream at me as well, calling us a bunch of White Trash and threatening to call the base police. I very nearly called them myself, and looking back probably should have. The next morning on my way back from the bathrooms my 10 year old son came running to get me. "Come quick the scary man is here." I ran back to the campsite to find the host yelling at my 5 year old son because he had ridden his scooter without a helmet. He then proceeded to call my military service into question - "How did they let you on base anyway?...You, an officer...yeah right. If you really were an officer and not some damn white trash you would have taught your children to wear a helmet." We left as soon as possible. I have never felt so unsafe in a campground - public or military. Mountain Home has hired crazy people to host their campground. I will never stay there again.
Okay, this FamCamp is off the beaten path. but its still only about 10-11 miles from I-84, so what's the big deal. The place was fairly clean and Don greeted us, even though it was about 11 PM when we got in. We are TENTERS, and Don requested we set up off to the side a bit, as he was trying to get the grass back in shape (and, he's doing a great job!) The place does have a desolate feel to it, but so does the rest of the surrounding area. At least this place is closer to being what I'd call a CAMPGROUND, than say, Hill AFB. You're not next to a highway, you're not on top of each other, and you still have amenities close by, but not right next door to you (so that you don't hear the constant parade of cars getting gas at all hours of the day and night. So what if you don't have a major city just down the road; at least you don't have to fight the traffic that goes along with that paradigm, either. Listen, Mountain Home is clean, quiet at night and a good value compared to other places and other FamCamps. A good night's sleep means more than having the mini-mart just two streets away.
Nice spot albeit a little off the beaten track; about 15 miles from freeway. It might be a great spot for long term visit, but for overnight I think it is just too far off the road. The electrical service was dogie at best throwing my circuit breaker at least three times. Sewer hookups too far from drain; need an extra long hose. BX and commissary located about 1/2 mile from camp. Good selection, but too far to walk in the extreme heat we experienced during our stay. Restroom facilities are adequate and semi-private. Best spaces for late afternoon shade: #3 or #12.
D.V. left this review using the Directory software: Main gate is under going construction, you must use the Grandview gate. This gate is just a few miles down the road. There are plenty of signs.|Not hard to find the FamCamp from this gate. The tree are starting to get thier leaves, no SAT reception. DW made me try 4 sites for reception. Could not find a good one, most RVers had portable tripods to aim between the trees. The trees hinder RVs with slide on both sides. You must maneuver unit to fit between the trees. Camp host were very helpful and accomadating.
