Very nice military campground with level spacious concrete sites. Located just off I-8. Picnic table but no cable or wi-fi, but our Direct TV and phone hot spot work fine. The base is small but has a commissary, exchange, bowling alley, theater, pool and playground. Very nice office staff that provides a information packet when you check in. Nice dog park with grass! We camped at El Centro Palm Oasis FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a month and had mixed emotions about a return visit. The park has three sections; a new, 11-site area with full width concrete pads and landscaping, the older and larger section with much the same features except a small patio, and the "tarmac" or overflow area which is a parking lot with full hookups. The recreation room is serviceable, and the laundry was fairly large and inexpensive ($1). The base facilities are spartan; the exchange is very small and stocks mostly convenience items, and the commissary is very small, but adequate. The base is located eight miles from town and there is very little nearby. No cable and few OTA stations in English, but no trees to block the satellites. WiFi was unusable, but Verizon cell/4G was strong. The quality of our stay was affected by aircraft noise. The runway is close by and jets start flying at 0700 each morning and often fly until 10 PM. The pattern takes the aircraft right over the park, and during night ops it's difficult to hear the TV or have a conversation. Approaching the gate, be aware you'll be stopped while a truck gate to the right is opened. We camped at El Centro Palm Oasis FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Don't miss a trip to the Salton Sea and the Slabs/East Jesus. Very unusual. The mall area 14 miles East is very nice with good restaurants.

Campsites were roomy and everything was kept neat and clean. Laundry was $1 for washer and $1 for dryer. The rec area had plush chairs, loads of books, 2 Tvs, a pool and a ping pong table, and an outside area with barbecue. The on base theater was free and playing current movies. Recent torrential rains (the likes of which the MWR clerk had not seen in the 17 years he's been here) left things very muddy. The sites had concrete pads, patio, and picnic table. All hookups worked fine (including 50 amp service). Wifi was good and the dog park was acceptable. We would definitely come here again. We camped at El Centro Palm Oasis FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't miss Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain, or Slab City. Very interesting. Also, the Blue Angels call this home in the winter. Got to see them practicing every day. It was an added bonus.

Stayed here for an overnight rest while traveling to San Diego. Arrived after hours and got a clear back in space. The plus is there is a free RV self wash in covered bay with free power washer use and soap. The temps are high in the summer and we saw 110' in May, before the pool on base was "open for the summer".

This is an active Air Force base so aircraft noise should be expected. The camp appeared only 25% occupied, but the host informed it is the place to be in the winter because of the weather and because it is the winter training area for the Blue Angels to practice for their national air shows. Believe we saw the Thunderbirds practicing during our stay but not certain. This is a military only facility and we did not check out the Px or commissary facilities. We camped at El Centro Palm Oasis FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Military only (Active, Retired, Reserve, DAV). Dry and dusty most of the time which is an improvement over when it rains and the world turns to mud. Normal base amenities available (Navy exchange, Commissary, Movie Theater, etc. Located about 10 miles from downtown El Centro. Most sites are back-in and although our site was supposed to have 50 Amp service, only the 30 Amp would work. Not bad for an overnight (I stayed here twice going into and out of San Diego), but wouldn't want to spend much time here. We camped at El Centro Palm Oasis FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
