I have to agree that Jason was fabulous. The only thing about this site is not having very many stations with Sewage Dumping capability. There is a community facility for dumping, but it’s kind of inconvenient to disconnect everything to go dump every few days. The ability to book one of the 5 stations that has dumping capability is next to impossible due to some of them being used continuously by base personnel. Otherwise, it is very quiet, with the exception of the occasional siren for drills. I do highly recommend this site for a stay.

Great little campground on a very quiet base. Stopped for one night. Nothing was open. We went to Outdoor Rec to pay but since it was the weekend, it was closed. We called on Monday when we were on the road and made the $10 payment. Only complaint was the O6 "leaders" who want to be above everyone else and not following the rules. (You really can't enforce rules if the O6's don't want to follow them, right?). This should definitely be an IG complaint. They occupy 2 of the 5 50 AMP sites. Would stop again. We stayed in a 45' 5th wheel and the guards opened the gates for us to get through easily. Restaurants and shopping about 15 minutes from the base.

Very, very nice little campground. It's new (opened in May of 2018) with asphalt sites and asphalt road, grass between each site, well spaced and utilities in good location and good working order. There are 5 pull through sites that are FHU and the back in sites are 30 amp with no sewer. There is a conveniently located dump station. Our only complaint was no wifi. (There is no cable either, but we have satellite so don't care about cable.) As we pulled in off the road towards the gate, they started opening the side gate that we didn't have the obstacles. That made entry very easy. It's best to go to your site before you check in because there really isn't anywhere to park at the MWR office. Jason at the FamCamp office was terrific. We wouldn't hesitate to go there again.

The previous review that stated this FAMCAMP is a hidden gem is absolutely correct! Very easy to find. The SP's removed the barriers when we entered and departed to make it easy to get our 45' fifth wheel through the gate. FAMCAMP was very clean, very quiet and peaceful. We were there on a Saturday so the field house and outdoor rec were closed. I couldn't pay the $10 fee since both were closed but we called Jason on Monday and he took the payment over the phone. Electric and water were fine, although the water had some rust in it. Dump station on the way out was well maintained. Nothing close to the base but 10-15 minutes from the gate is plenty of restaurants and shopping. Here is my biggest gripe (and no fault on Jason, since he inherited the problem)...two homesteaders in prime spots (two of five 50amp spots). The 5th wheels in the picture at the top of the page are the two I am referring to. These two homesteaders are both O6's and don't appear to have to follow the rules. They should be the examples, not the exceptions. Overall, a nice stay and would definitely return.

Not much to do around here but centrally located between Cleveland, OH and Pittsburgh, PA., about 90 mins to either one. Clean facilities, laundry must be by the office at Outdoor Rec. (We have our own so I didn't bother looking.) Sites are narrow and the asphalt is VERY soft, your Jack's will sink. Our neighbor was kind enough to help us get some very solid planks to place under our Jack's after the front one left about a 6-8 inch hole behind. Coming in the gate the guard opened the "closed gate" entrance for us. Would NOT recommend driving in until they open the gate for you, it would be too hard to maneuver the barriers otherwise. Another RV had an incident when a guard wouldn't open it for him.

The bathrooms were clean; the electricity at our site was fine. We didn't use the water - didn't need it for our tent. I can't comment on the other Amenities since there were none. Not even a picnic table at each site. On the other hand, the price was great and the place was quiet. We did hear the sound of jets taking off and landing until late, but that wasn't noise - it was the sound of freedom!

Our son is stationed at this base, so the location could have not been better. It is quiet (except 1st weekend of the month for drill) and close enough to "town" for all amenities. Previous reviews of the sites are accurate...50A FHU pull-thrus are narrow and the 30A W/E back-ins have more room. The showers & restrooms are immaculate. There is no wi-fi or cable on the site and the amenities are limited on base, but definitely worth the $10/15 a night. The two 5th wheels that are parked permanently in the pull-thrus are active duty Commanders that come and go as they please but are also keep an eye on things (good and bad). Jason from Outdoor Rec could have been nicer. We did have problems with rust in the water which our water filter actually turned rusty. Went to rinse out the water filter at the water hydrate at the next site, only to have rusty water come out immediately which gave away to clean water. We reported the water issue to Jason but one of the Commanders mentioned that the water issue had been a problem for the last year on base.

Jayson at outdoor Rec made our visit very easy, I had a harder time finding his office than the CG. Easy reservation and check-in I just dropped the camper at the Famcamp, and then drove back to Outdoor rec. The FamCamp was clean, comfortable. 50A FHU Pull Thru sites very narrow, You step out of you rig on to the grass. Overall we enjoyed our visit of 5 nights. Only one place to eat on base, lunch only except Thursday (bar night). We spend winters in Tyndal AFB and at NAS Jacksonville, so the QUIET here was a nice surprise. (Only one to two flights in or out each day.) Toured Mill Creek Park in Youngstown for the day and the Butler Institute of American Art, both well worth the drive. Shopping and dining were two exits down rte 11 at Eastwood Mall in Niles. We will be back again in the Fall

This place is a hidden gem! Although the layout of the CG is not the best, it is extremely quite and well maintained. We were in one of the 5 FHU/Pull-Through spots, but 3 of them seemed to be occupied by 5th-wheels with no occupants! The area and shopping around the base is also excellent and very nice neighborhoods! Biggest let-down was no WiFi, so we had to use a data-hotspot...

Stayed here for one very rainy night in June 2018. Arrived late and was escorted to the FAMCamp by Security Forces - which was nice considering the visibility. Called to make reservations in advance and the Outdoor Recreations specialist (Jason I believe) was very courteous and accommodating. It was a Saturday night and the base was pretty much deserted and quiet. The RV Park looked nice, well laid out and clean and adjacent to a Civil Engineering work area. Electrical panel was new and water was easily accessed as well. The base gate was set up with bollards so you have to go slow on the way in and out to make sure you don't hit anything, but it was not hard to do - I was towing a 30' fifth wheel trailer. Great spot for an overnight stop if you are passing through the area.

Easy reservation and check-in at Outdoor Recreation, Bldg B-104 (1st left on entering base). If you are in Big Rig or towing don't enter B-104 parking lot. No exit or turnaround. Instead pull into parking lot on right, Eagles Nest. Small PX. Chapel in Bldg 201. Call for schedule. FamCamp clean, comfortable. 50A FHU Pull Thru sites not spacious. 30A backin bigger. Overall we enjoyed our visit of 1-week. Only one place to eat on base, lunch only except Thursday (bar night).

Very pleased with the facility. Not much there, but made a good over night spot traveling through the area. In my opinion, it was not designed by an experienced camper. Paved section was smooth and level but not even wide enough to comfortably step off from the camper steps. Had to step onto grass. ***** Not a major problem. I won't complain about the high grass just because it is newly opened. They'll get that under control. Dump station was too close to end of loop exit so my truck was out in the connecting road and I have a relatively small camping trailer. (27 ft). "Field House" was just a simple but roomy bath house. SPOTLESS, clean and obviously new. FANTASTIC price!!! If you go there in the near future, they are still getting their ducks in a row. Check-in is at base hotel (Eagle's Nest??)and they were not prepared for my arrival. Initially called Eagle's Nest and was given another number. (See Below) Gate Entrance GPS 41.271886, -80.676386 Check-In at Eagles Nest motel GPS 41.270161, -80.675750 Telephone number for reservation that was given to me by Eagle's Nest 1-330-609-1501
