Just stayed here a week visiting friends before heading west. All sites are back in, no pull throughs. If you have a toy hauler and you're hauling your toys, you'll have to unload before backing in. Lot's of pine trees and lot's of pine needles all over. Seems like no one ever cleans them up. Satellite TV, Forget about it, although we did get MeTv on the over the air antenna. The bathhouse needs immediate attention looked like it needed a pressure washer taken to it. I'd stay here again cause it's a short drive to my friend house up Rt 17 but there is another park to the north I may try next time.
Drove through CG today since I was in general area for the week. Winding busy road to get here and dangerous entering and exiting the area. The CG is on base property but not secured other than signage stating military property. The road to and around the CG are hard surface, sites are decent size not huge, concrete pads that would look a lot better if the pine needles were blown off. Kind of a dreary look to the CG which could be improved with a little effort. Bathrooms and laundry in same building as office, all showing age but kept fairly clean. There were only 5 or 6 campers in the CG. This would not be one of my first choices of CG spots for the area but I would stay here based on what I have seen.
After being told over the phone that no vacancies existed for the whole month of September, we stopped by just to check out the facilities, and we were told that a spot had opened up. Our site was sufficiently large for my Class A motorhome and towed vehicle, pretty level, and clean. I would not have been as happy with a few spots, notably #21, because of considerable standing water on the site after a rain shower. The bathhouse was spacious and clean. There is no wi-fi or cable service, but we had good 3G cell service. We had full hookups, although our site had only 50 and 20 amp connections. My only beef with the facility was with apparent homesteaders who could do a much better job of policing their sites, and with one who apparently thought that parking his SUV right in front of the bathhouse instead of real parking spots just feet away was okay. Oh, and you take your life into your own hands as you exit the fam-camp onto Saunders Road. It's on a curve in the highway, and considerable vegetation interferes with your ability to see oncoming traffic in both directions. Regardless, I plan to stay there again whenever I visit Hampton.
T. L. left this review using the Directory software: I think cost is high compared to other military campgrounds and mediocre facilities. Campground is part of Betthel Park, which has pavillions, picnic areas, boat rentals, ball fields and paintball field.
We thought this Famcamp was a nice, quiet and safe place to visit. All the sites were "back-in". A few of them seemed vulnerable to flooding in heavy rain. Bathrooms/showers were well used but serviceable. Two very good washers and dryers. The CG Manager was prompt to respond when needed. Security Forces made frequent drives through the CG. Not bad for a short stay.
