I read some of the recent reviews and I suggest that anyone who posts a comment also go to the ICE (Interactive Customer Evaluation) website to review or try to get some action on military Famcamps, RV Parks or Campgrounds. Most military customer service activities can be found there. https://ice.disa.mil/index.cfm?fa=card&sp=80316&s=188&dep=*DoD&sc=15 This site is the electronic form of the comment card and goes directly to the unit and presumably the commander will see it. Go to the Base/Post etc, "Recreation", "FamCamp or RV Park".

We used to love this Famcamp. Those who pass through here frequently will notice a big difference. The employees in the office are young and always on their cellphones - or making out with their boyfriend over the counter. Have a question? They don't know the answer and don't care to find out. They do not replenish the coffee machine that is available for campers and shrug their shoulders when you ask when it will be refilled. The ice machine was not working when we left and the internet had been down for over a week and we were told in the office that FamCamp is last on the list of priorities for the base commander, though we were also told the base commander talked about "milking the cash cow" that is the Famcamp. The pool has very limited hours, even in the summer. The Wilmot gate has very restricted hours more so now than before. No one is available for emergencies on the weekend, so if something goes wrong (like the ice machine being broken), well, tough luck. We have been coming here since 2009 and this is the worst customer service we have ever experienced. Many base FamCamps are getting better and better while this one is going downhill. We finally decided to move to an RV resort on the west end of Tucson - cheaper, better amenities (pool, 2 gyms, laundry rooms with 20 washers and dryers) and fast, working wifi and $150/month less than the Famcamp. Such a shame, this used to be a great place to visit.

Arrived in Tucson and stayed at DM for the weekend. We decided to enter the Craycroft gate as the Wilmot gate (which is closer to the RV Park) had concrete traffic barriers that were hard to weave in and out of for the truck and 5th wheel. The employees were courteous during check in, the office appeared clean and luckily air-conditioned on a balmy 104 degree day. I was never able to get connected to the Wi-Fi, they have a dog park area, dog wash, and the bathhouse were ok. Our site #16 W/S/50 was rock with a concrete pad and a picnic table. Got lucky with no neighbors on either side for our visit. Quiet at night, short drive to commissary, bx, movie theater, and bowling. Centrally located for touring around Tucson.

Third visit here ... Start with the good part ... This park is in Tucson (lots to see and do) and the staff is great. Bathrooms and grounds are well kept and clean. The not so good part ...cell coverage is fair to good and wifi is fair to poor. Sites are tight ... I step out of my RV and the neighbor’s water/sewer is right beside the picnic table. The neighbor’s sewer hook up is about 15 feet from my steps. So, it’s a trade off ... for three days it was worth the trade.

Very nice, clean and friendly staff and people. We stayed in the newer 200 section, I don't really have any complaints-except the usual: the WiFi sucks.

I would have rated this park 5 stars across the board if they would only get their internet sorted. Very low occupancy this time of year, parked right next to the antenna, and still was barely usable. They need to seriously upgrade the speed of this.

What everyone else says. It is indeed one of the better FAMCAMPS we've experienced. My only divergence from other reviews is I found internet service marginal without an extender/amplifier. Famcamp wifi kept dropping connection and wasn't all that fast - we were only one site from an antenna but there was vegetation inbetween. Usually not a problem because I can use my Verizon unlimited plan but in the middle of a very large metro area my Verizon data signal was also poor - significantly less than 1mb downloads. Up on main post had great speeds. As indicated I suspect an extender/amplifier would solve the problem but configuring my extender is problematic with web page logins - which you have to do once a day.

This is a very busy famcamp with several large overflow sites. First come first served is well regulated to be fair for all. All site are desert landscaped (gravel) but well laid out with good FHU's. The laundry was good size, had eight washers and seven dryers. We will stay here again, the area has a lot to offer just outside the base.

Our stay was great, no surprise. We have stayed DM in the past and always enjoy our stay. Just a update, was talking with one of the employees here and he informed us that one of the overflows will be converted to FHU .

This was our second time at DM FamCamp. Weather was great (upper 70s/low 80s) - the CG was full the whole time to include the overflow/drycamping area. Several gem shows were going on so I think this contributed. Most folks were staying 5-7 days in overflow before getting full hookups. Can't say anything bad about Agave Gulch, staff is great and process is fair to everyone. CG was kept clean and not cluttered like we've seen at other FamCamps. There were some extracurricular activities that they put on, which was a nice touch. Wish they would have a closer recycle, currently they just have aluminum can receptacles. We plan on coming back.

Worst experience during 7 months on the road. The park is beautiful and clean. The staff is rude and not helpful at all. We came in after hours. The available list was not correct so we chose another spot that was empty. I left my name and number; they never called. They told us we had to move but could not accurately tell us what spots were available. Campers were moving all around to different spaces; camp managers had no idea what was going on.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions both winter and summer and have always come away satisfied. Current prices for retirees are $22.00 for a FHU site and $11.00 for overflow. We are a 45 foot motorhome and can fit in all the newer sites and most of the older ones. Typically the park gets full mid to late January, but this year, because of hurricane damage in Florida and some parks being closed, the FamCamp got full early. There is a pretty steady rotation so most folks will be in overflow for a week or less. They publish each night a list of the folks in overflow and how many are projected to go into a FHU site the next day. AT 11:00 each morning at the FamCamp office they total up the number of vacancies and call out the names of folks who can move into a FHU site. Sometimes they have unexpected departures so I suggest go to the office for the 11:00 AM call out the day before you expect to move as well as the day of. I initially was told 8 days in overflow, but it turned out they had some unexpected move outs, so it was only 7. Due to some electrical issues, there are a number of older sites that are 30 amp only.

We love this place. It is convenient to Tucson shopping and restaurants. On base, the commissary is very good, well stocked, and there is a convenience store for after hours. The bowling alley is terrific ( we used it a lot during our stay) and it is easy to keep fit with two gyms. The laundry facilities are nice and clean as are the bath/shower rooms. The one thing I object to is that the contract workers who come over early in the morning use the campground bathrooms before going to work. I like the system at Yuma Proving Grounds where you get a key for the facilities - keeping out the civilian contractors. It is a one mile walk from the campground to where the sidewalk ends, and this path is lighted, so you can walk after dark. We were told that after October 1, prices were going up to $27/night for everyone, which we think is high for a military campground. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay and they have figured out how to make it nice for everyone. I like the no-reservation policy. If you have ever tried to get a site at Nellis, you will know what I mean. They are reserved for folks who may never show up - keeping others from getting a place for the night.

Just a side note. Do NOT follow Google Maps. It will get you to the base, but unless you have a VERY high clearance, don't go in the gate beside the Famcamp. Go in the front gate, and follow the directions on this site. I got there on Sunday, 23 Dec, and pulled toward the gate....realized it was locked. So had to unhook the TOAD, turn around, and rehook up to go to the Main Gate. But after going out the gate yesterday morning, I'm SOOOO glad it wasn't open when I got there. The 'bump' is probably over a foot high...I know I would have scraped. But it is a great place. I will be here every year.

This is our 4th say here and not much has changed since our last one. Called ahead to check if sites were available and was told no problem. I will add that the WiFi has improved since our last stay but does slow down in the late mornings and early evenings. Other than those times it’s great. Although we never use public bathrooms and showers I did a walk-through and found those in the “new” section very clean. Same with the laundry facilities. If you have a package sent to the park the staff will call you when it’s there for pickup. Nice touch. Verizon 4g was good with 2-3 bars and DTV satellite signal is no problem in most sites. Great water pressure (reducer needed) and solid 30/50 amp power.

Excellent park, we stayed in the newer area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Not much I can say that others haven’t. Nice place to stay if you need to be in the Tucson area in the summer, and a great winter destination. Prices increased on Oct 1, 2017. Nightly rate is now 22 dollars for military.

This RV park is very nice. We arrived after hours and there were very clear instructions on what to do and where to park. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's no wonder why this FamCamp is so crowded in the winter time. We would definitely come back, if the opportunity presents itself.

Can't say much about this place that hasn't already been said - this place is an ideal winter location and a great FamCamp. I like the "no reservations" policy and the waitlist procedure; this is a fair way to do this for such a popular park. With that said, it would be nice to be able to get a full-hookups site if you're just passing through, (i.e. maybe make 5-8 full-hookup sites short term, like max 2 days). It took us 4 days in overflow area to get a full-hookups site (overflow is dry camping). Facilities are kept clean and in good shape and the park itself is kept clean and orderly. We had no issues with this park and would definitely come back. One drawback, getting to the main gate off of Golf Links Rd could be nerve-racking if you arrive during high-traffic times. We left through the Wilmont Gate to Kolb Ave and headed south to I-10 - this was much better than dealing with Main Gate & Golf Links Rd to I-10 South.
