I did not thoroughly read the reviews on this site before making a reservation at NAS Fallon. If you are seeking this military FamCamp as an option to avoid Reno, stay outside the gate in Fallon for the same price or press to Reno. The hassle of making a reservation through the lodging office then expected to navigate your rig there to their conned-off parking lot is near impossible. Further expected to disconnect rig at the RV park or other location, travel to office, check in, get spot number, then re-hook up and move into spot. Definitely not worth the hassel for a one or two night stay. Wifi is free, 3 MBPS. Concrete level slabs in all gravel RV park. No trees/shade. No dog park/run. No diesel on station.
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.
Prices are weighted in favor of long-term campers. Expensive - could have stayed at a Casino or fairgrounds for $15. South Gate at end of Berney Road to enter. Gravel with concrete pads but no patio. Park on concrete pad, patio is gravel. Figure that one out. 3 networks but site 9 Wifi barely loads mail and won't load any websites. One side is nice desert view but the other three are RV Storage and the rusting poles of driving-range netting, fuel tanks or buildings. Neat and clean except for a couple of 'homesteaders'. Not a tree, shrub or patch of grass. Good electric, hook-ups in good shape. Quiet. This campground is waay overpriced.
