I really hate it when I have to do a poor review of a campground, but someone has to say this. What in the world is Fallon thinking? $30.00 for a concrete parking lot with zero trees, a pay laundry, and it's a base with nothing for your kids to do, there isn't even a car wash on base. It's out in the middle of the Nevada desert. We stayed at Nellis in Las Vegas for $18.00, Lemoore NAS for $24,00, Travis AFB for $20.00, Beale AFB for $18.00, the desert rose, 30 miles west of fallon, (read the reviews), one of the very finest r.v. parks in the country, let alone Nevada, is only $25.00. Why do I think this has everything to do with MWR? The Air Force takes care of their own facilities, not MWR I have been told. I'm retired Navy and this was my very last time at any Navy base. From now on its Air Force bases. I have yet to have a bad thing to say about them. Sorry, but honesty is honesty, oh yeah, they have a first class movie theater. Getting on base takes an act of congress with the new "high security" gates, something most bases still resist. I wonder if Fallon has sold their r.v. park to KOA?? That would explain everything.
Have to agree with cmawest. We live in Fallon and go to the base for commissary and Exchange. They closed the Galley a couple of years ago and everyone eats at the "O" club. We stayed there for a month when we quit fulltiming back in 2009 and were looking for a place to settle back down. It was cheaper then but everything else you noted was the same. If anyone asked me I would direst them to the fairgrounds although there is lots of horsey stuff going on and it fills up with the fancy horse trailer/RVs on many weekends. The Fallon RV park west of town a couple of miles is OK and lots of people stay at the Bonanza Casino/Super 8 as they have RV hookups for $15.00 per night too.
