Overall Experience 

21 Jun - 6 Jul 2016

This was our first visit to this FamCamp. Small (15 sites total) and quiet. Unlike most of the military campgrounds we have visited, this one appears to actually be a campground and not a trailer park. They apparently enforce length of stay policies. Only one camper appeared to have been here a while - no homesteaders. The reservation process was seamless. NWS Earle is well marked and access was easy. Bear left after coming in the gate and loop around and through the inspection building. We arrived after hours and our packet was at security office past the main gate inspection station. You will be handed your packet without having to exit your vehicle. The pads are level and paved with a paved extension for the picnic table. Sites are FHU but beware when siting your rig that the connections are in weird locations. Get out and have a look before you start backing. - Our power connection was at the very back of the concrete pad. Make sure when you site your rig so your cord will reach. - The sewer connection was in the center of the concrete pad about 15 ft from the back of the pad. I ended up climbing under our RV to make the connection. - The water connection was on the left side as usual but the spigot was very close to the ground. Water tasted and smelled fine. - The cable TV connection which is on the side of the electrical box was inoperative. When I asked the office they were not even aware there was one. - WiFi signal strength was good with reasonable speed. The system requires you re-log in periodically, but that just keeps the system fresh. As mentioned in other reviews, there is no commissary but they have a well-stocked NEX with many Navy souvenirs and uniform items; basic food items and alcohol. We had to travel a ways to find the nearest grocery store or Walmart, so plan accordingly. Swimming pool looked nice but we have not used (yet). The laundry facility also houses the latrines and showers with a pushbutton lock on the doors. Three washers ($1.75) and three dryers ($1.25). No change machine so bring a roll of quarters. Everyone we dealt with here from reservations to arrival have been very pleasant and very helpful. Overall we are very happy with this FamCamp and would definitely return.
