Demerits? Seriously? A management style of treating campers like school children assigns 3 points for various infractions. Exceed 12 and you're ejected. Office staff lets those who come to the office wait, while they take phone calls immediately. With only 34 first-come first-serve sites, this park certainly discourages spontaneity. It really just provides subsidized Winter housing and RV storage for snowbirds. Be prepared for days of dry-camping and hearing generators from dawn to almost midnight. It would be considerate to set aside a no-generator area for those of us who can function without one. FHU sites vary from spacious to cramped. Partial sites are next to the dry-camp field and their generators. We watched seven partial sites sit empty for three nights (maybe more after we left), but we couldn't get out of dry-camping. Neither could we make a reservation. If they don't reserve them and they don't move people to them, then what? The location is beautiful, the base has every amenity. We appreciated the library, commissary, and exchange. Gas was convenient. Easy to get to highways and tourist attractions. This is the 23rd FAMCAMP we have stayed in and the first to require vaccination records for my Cat for a 4 day visit! Bathrooms were tidied-up, but have had years of hard use. Every stall had a functional shower-head and shower-curtain and lots of hot water. Huge laundry, as is fitting for 400 campsites. Dump station is located for departing campers, not convenient for those needing to dump before dry-camping. WiFi? Forget it. Never got on it in the campground, indicating it's way overloaded. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Raccoon Creek (MacDill AFB family campground): advantages include relatively low monthly campsite rate that includes W/E/S, close to the commissary/bx, close to golfing and the beach. Security and once in the camp reservation system you can stay for up to 6 months. These advantages are offset by serious weak points that prevent it from being the top rated military campground that it should be. The first one is a lazy, don’t care office staff with a take it or leave it attitude that campers often talk about. If this was a private campground without the base to lessen some of their operating expenses and their stay 6 months policy, they’d go out of business. They rely on volunteers to do the work that incentivized paid camp workers should be doing. Their office doesn’t open until 10:00AM (every campground that we have worked at opened their office doors NLT 0800). Free WiFi is not available throughout the campground. Their activities are centered around making money for the MWR rather than providing services to the campers (propane at $5.10 per gallon and at the in-town CampingWorld @ $3.25 per gal). Base or camp personnel only come around to spruce up the campground when they hear that the base commander might be coming around to inspect. They actually expect the campers to drive over to the office area to borrow the camp mower and keep the grass around their sites neat and mowed. If a space becomes available due to a departure, it might be 1-2 days before someone in W/E or no services overflow section hears that there is a full hookup space they can move into. Their idea of publicizing a campground event (ie., yard sale, park picnic, crafts show ) is a one time mention in their monthly newspaper. We experienced several power outages this season and more than a few power surges, the kind that fry your TV, microwave etc. If you want internet, you subscribe to Brighthouse (extra monthly charge ) for your internet needs as the Mi-Fi card will work but only intermittently. Their mail distribution system is totally unreliable and if you let them handle your incoming packages, you do so at your peril. They frequently misplace or lose the parcels including letters and medications. We camped here in a Motorhome.

There are two CGs on this base. One is the annex and the other is the main park. Registration for both is done at the MWR office near the main CG. That is convenient because you can rent recreational equipment. Since policy allows up to a six months stay, and by looking at all of the permanent personal fixtures in and around the RVs, it appears that both CGs are heavily occupied by long term residents. Check-in is only during normal daylight hours. For these two reasons, I would not count on getting a site without an advanced reservation. Access roads are paved. Sites are all back-in with a couple parallel concrete tire strips for the pads. Space between rigs is just adequate. Utilities worked fine. The pay-for-use laundry has lots of machines and the shower/restroom facilities, in that same building, are numerous. There are three Wi-Fi hotspots in the main campground. I found none in the annex. They said that there was 4G cell data coverage, but I did not receive it at the time of my visit. There is a marina at the CG (boat rentals available), a golf course just down the road, and other normal base facilities. There are some date/time security gate restrictions. Check that out before you show up at one only to find it closed. Despite the rating, I probably won’t be back. As an over nighter, I found everything to be less friendly and user convenient than I would have liked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
