We arrived on 8/9 and on way in saw a vacant site. At check in the person said they only had W/E and I told her about the site. 1st she said she hadn't checked them yet then she said she just gave it out so I took a W/E site. When hooking up I noticed the 50 Amp plug was upside-down. We checked the bathhouse and the men's shower were discussing. No one has cleaned the stalls with any cleaners because the walls had black dirt imbedded in the walls and floor. We checked the Laundry room and it has not been sweep or really cleaned in some time. Tried to find a camp host and no signs reflecting the host or who was on duty. The basic overall appearance of the park is very disappointing for an AF Famcamp. The place is seedy looking and the overall management of the park by military or civilian is very poor. We drove by the 1st vacant site noted in the beginning and on the 3rd day it was still vacant and that afternoon they called and offered it. I told her that was the same site we asked about 3 days ago and she had no answer. This tells me that no one checks the park daily for openings. No one checks each site after they leave because our spot was not, at least, blown off and the power switch was still on. My question still is, What does the Camp Host Do, just get paid? While there we noticed power flickering and on the 4th night power out and on and brownouts. Camper next to us experienced the same. Contacted the Office a person came and opened the main power box and said the breaker is rusted and they would call. We had no power and the fear of damage was to great so we let the CG early. This place should be shut down until they find proper management, camp host with job descriptions, the home build RVs removed (not NFPA Certified) unless the AF is willing to accept the risk of all damage. The poor quality of this Famcamp, its' management is a reflection of the poor quality leadership at the Senior Officer and Enlisted ranks.

!WARNING! IF YOU ARE YOUNG AND/OR ACTIVE DUTY STEER CLEAR OF THIS DECREPIT RETIREMENT FACILITY In the past year living at this camp my wife and I (and the 3 other full time active duty) have experienced nothing short of intense discrimination and rudeness without reproach from counselors ***** and *****. Despite remaining polite, we have all been badgered on a continual basis for 'gaming the system' by saving our BAH while residing in our 5th wheels. While nothing could be further from the truth, the counselors here have made every effort to exclude active duty personnel from using the camp facilities. Whether it is attempting to force us to rotate our trailers around so their retiree full timer friends can have the 'prime' spots, creating new rules on a consistent basis targeted at forcing us out of the camp, or creating a hostile atmosphere with neighbors who "complain" about you all day while you are at work, this has the be the poorest run military camp in the nation. My tipping point came it was noted that one of the retirees who has stayed here the longest, and with strong ties to the counselors messing with my wife. On several occasions this retiree would wait until I leave for work in the morning and then come park his truck with tinted windows behind our camper in the woods to observe my wife sunbathing in her suit. Although I reported this after 3 instances to the counselors (and their superior who is also a civilian), nothing was done. The issue was not even addressed with the retiree and no follow up was completed. There are many other examples that I could provide; however, my best word of advice is to stay away if you are an active duty troop with an RV. Spend the extra $500 to live off base without the headache. *If I could give negative points on this review I would.
