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.
P.R. left this review using the Directory software: - How can any camp be rated "best" when the showers are antiquated, no handicapped facilities except for 2 parking spaces, the supposed handicapped shower is NOT a handicapped one. Gravel only and using a wheelchair or walker is impossible! No cable TV for those confined to the RV, I could go on and on. This not the "best" just because it has more spaces than most, therefore more votes! Stop building more sites and update the existing showers!!!
I was hopeful of enjoying this experience on my first opportunity to visit a military campground but found out it was fully booked - "it is our busy season". I feel that the military campground, particularly with this many spaces, ought to dedicate 5 or 6 spaces to the transient traveler. Otherwise, it becomes a "destination resort" just like the Voyager across the highway. Very disappointing!
Someone sent me an e-mail saying they might accommodate on the rotation policy for medical problems. I asked in the office and they said they would not. They told me everyone had generators. My fifth wheel is not equipped with a generator, nor can I afford a 3 or 4 thousand dollar generator. They are not very nice people. Every other RV park I have visited the people are extremely nice. See above: My e-mail address has remained the same for many years and I have not received an e-mail from Gulchman. In the 6 month deal mentioned above they told me you have to pay for 6 months in advance. Other RV parks only require one month in advance. This RV park does have the potential to be the best though. Tra-tel RV park in Tucson has a rate of only $285 per month. I believe that Agave Gulch could reduce their rates to match. Also I made a mistake and said that Agave Gulch charges $400 per month. It is actually $441 for only 3 weeks.
