We tried calling for reservations a couple of days ahead but there was no answer and no answering machine. Finally got thru the day befor we wanted to be there. They did not tell us that they were on a holiday schedule and their office was only open from 10-1. An e-mail confirmation/receipt was supposed to be mailed but never was. We got there at 1:15 and fortunately, the girl there got our paperwork with our assigned site. She said if we had any questions to contact the camp host. (There was a sign at a spot, but no one there the whole time.) She tried to print out a receipt, but the printer was out of ink. The next day, we went back for a receipt and again, printer out of ink, so he e-mailed it. This time we got it. He gave us the information on the base, etc. There is no restroom/shower, or laundry but we found out we could do laundry at the Air Force Inn. It was free. The posted price was $18 but the price had gone up to $25. I would like to give ratings about 2 1/2 . Location, very little in Del Rio. Cleanliness/hospitality, grounds were clean but hospitality left a lot to be desired. Amenities/facilities, no restroom/shower, laundry not at campground, no wi-fi. The sites are long and level. Value, for the previous $18 it would have been fine but for $25, not really worth it. Overall experience, could have been better. Very noisy with training but that is to be expected. Pet cleanup was not enforced. Watched a man walking two big dogs behind us an he didn't clean up after them.
When I called about making a reservation, I requested a specific site and was told that that side of the FamCamp was reserved for long term stays only. So I was given a site on the other side of the FamCamp. That particular side of the campground has 5 spaces facing the wrong way (the porch side receives the afternoon sun). There are also 5 "FEMA-type" trailers that can be rented by the month only. There is no wi-fi in the campground, so one has to go to the library in order to access the internet. The campground is adjacent to a picnic/playground area. The flight line is on the other side of the picnic/playground area, so the campground tends to be noisy.
We arrived late in the afternoon with a reservation. It's a good thing, the park is full of homesteaders. It's a nice park, fully pave spots, with privacy fences between spots. Big drawback is the lack of dining options at the BX. The just have Burger King and the BX is small for the size of the base, as is the commissary. Apart from stopping here on the way east, there isn't any reason to stay here. It's too bad because this has the makings of a top notch RV park.
S.K. left this review using the Directory software: Due to the cold weather we had no water when we arrived but it was fixed the next day. No laundry and it's the lowest priority. AF Inn allowed me to do 2 loads one day. One laundromat in town. No diesel fuel on base, not much to do, commissary small but very good, BX is small with very little in merchandise.
