Our trip down from Buckley AFB in Denver and compared to Holloman is apples and oranges. Being on Military Installations, you would think of finding uniformity and familiarity from one place to another, for example, most of the sites on Holloman are gravel and the hard pads are rare to get for they are utilized by active duty personnel waiting for housing or other reasons, Buckley has hard concrete pads. Wifi is another example, virtually non-existant at Holloman unless you bring your own or have it installed, Buckley has a Verizon jet pack system you rent monthly for a refundable 50 dollars and is unlimited data. The camp hosts on both are present, willing to work with you and do a good job of accommodating travelers but it is advisable to contact the outdoor rec at both installations for availability. Holloman is quiet except for the highway noise and daily training of the pilots overhead. Lots of interesting places to see in the area, Trinity test site (open 2x year) lava beds north of the test range, space museum, observatory and white sands national park. I was paying 300 a month and was informed to the increase to 500 which in my mind doesn't warrant the increase unless they hard pad and use a jet pack wifi system.
