The sites are TINY. If they say a sight will fit your RV/trailer, that's all it fits. Getting into the site is another story, maneuvering around ditches and trees and one way streets is a "hoot." Access to the campground is a slow pace across the entire AFB to get to Fam Camp. There is plenty of space except for the actual sites which are packed in on top of one another. The bathrooms were dirty and a big hole in the concrete wall allowed you to see into the next shower stall. The base commissary and exchange are very nice. The location of going into St Louis is ideal. The campground is unmanned so if you need any help, forget it. When we arrived our parking pass was stuck on our campsite post. Base swimming pool is really nice, open 1-6pm daily.
Without a doubt this was the most disgusting place I've ever stayed. The bathrooms were horrendous with prison cell style metal toilets. There's no one on site - you do everything over the phone. The entire bath/laundry facility was covered in spiderwebs and dead bugs and that includes the soda machine. I know it's in the woods but come on, you can at least wipe things down now and then. It was cheap at $15 but wasn't really worth even that. This was the third Air Force base camp we stayed at on our trip and they have all been so far below par that I won't bother with them in the future.
Although this CG was in a good location and was easy to get to, it leaves a lot to be desired. First of all the gate guard was a real JERK, who couldn't make up his mind if he wanted me to come through the left or right lane or any lane as far as that goes. Thank God there was a very nice Airman there who knew what she was doing. We were in Site # 2 which is in the old section, the site was real unlevel, the grill was unusable, the water is very difficult to use due to the diverters they have here. The water runs in a big puddle making it stale and nothing but bugs breed there. The vending machine was empty and it appears that it had been that way for some while due to all the bird droppings all over it, along with a birds nest. The grass seems to have been moved recently but was badly in need of mowing again. There is no one to call on the weekend or Holiday if you have any questions or problems. Tried to call to see if we could move to the new section, but just an answering machine. We were going to stay till the 26th but had enough and left early the morning of the 25th. This is a NOT TO STAY AGAIN CG unless they fix up the older section to match the new section which was not full and could have put a few of us campers in it.
This RV Parks should be closed due to unsafe and dangerous conditions that will cause injury and damage to the RV campers. The turns within the park, the obstructions along the road, the width of the roads, the length of RV sites make this RV park unsatisfactory and unsafe. The Park was designed for entirely smaller RV trailers. Any RV over 20 feet within this park would not be able to safely navigate the narrow, sharp turns and safely park within the alloted sites. I recommend this site only for RV trailers under 20 feet. It is necessary to enter wide into the grass areas to make many of the turns to the sites, dump stations and to exit. A driver or pedestrian is going to get hurt or damage property while using the area. I will be sending an email and/or letter to the Base commander alerting them to the unsafe conditions. The RV Park needs to be completely renovated increasing the size of roads, less tight turns, longer RV sites and other improvements to make this a safe and suitable place. If this were inspected by an ORI/ MEI inspector, they would rate it unsatisfactory and not fit for use. I could not rate this site any lower than "1" above, but would rate it a "0" if possible, due to unsafe conditions to all concerned. I deeply hope the management and staff review this information and take corrective action.
