We stayed in a pull through, site 7, across from the registration office. Our site was level, spacious, and smooth. There were many open back in sites and some pull through. Staff was helpful. Location was great. Weather was cool and comfortable. The wifi was not working properly but was being worked on. Signal was good but a cable had been cut over on the base so it wasn't passing data. We camped at Vandenberg AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for 1 month. We were in a backin for the big rig section and had a lot of room between sites. Lots of trees around and areas to walk pets and take walks. Very close to the beach access on base. The staff is outstanding and courteous. Facilities such as showers, laundry, and sites are excellent. Will definitely stay at this FamCamp again.

The most depressing base and miserable RV park ever. The site was paved, but warped from heat or roots so bad that it was impossible to get level. We had site 18 which had a street light that rivaled the sun. Literally, it was just as bright in the RV at night as it was during the day. There is no playground or anything to do here. Never again. We camped at Vandenberg AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park with friendly hosts. Our site was somewhat unlevel, but workable for the two day stay. WIFI was excellent. We camped at Vandenberg AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

First off we appreciated the ability to stay here as instructors on base even though we are not military. We had to be sponsored, but it was well worth the time it took to jump through all the required hoops as our commute was about 3-4 minutes vs. half an hour. Check in was, well, interesting. The person working the office seemed overwhelmed by the simplest of tasks. I repeatedly asked her to call me to take my debit card information for payment as there was an issue when we checked in. That call never happened and I had to scrape together cash to pay as I do not travel with checks. The site we had (13) was a pull through. Trees narrowed the site a bit and made receiving our DirecTV signal a challenge. The resident host was a very nice, helpful man who was pleasant to speak with. We met several more permanent residents who were all very pleasant to speak with. The restrooms and showers were clean for the most part, although I have seen cleaner. I would give them a 7 out of 10. Thank goodness for "shower shoes". I was told all sites have only 50 amp service so keep that in mind. The vehicle search at the Lompoc Gate was relatively quick, although I did not appreciate having to sit in a room and not watch what was being done in searching my RV. I guess that is the price you pay for the privilege of staying in an RV on base. Overall our stay was pleasant and I would definitely stay here again if ever providing additional training on base.

A great value for military families. Nice quiet location, only a few airplanes visit Vandenberg, so not much airplane noise, even though the famcamp is about .5 miles from the end of the runway. One quirk is that the only electrical service is 50 amps, so you'll need an adapter if you don't use 50 amp service. The campground host has 50 to 30 adapters available to borrow. Also, the base requires RVs to be inspected and the inspections ONLY take place at the Lompoc gate, which is NOT the main gate.

In addition to the previous comments, I'd like to state the WiFi is currently poor to practically nonexistent most of the time. The current WiFi system is antiquated and is provided by Sprint. The good news is Verizon 4G LTE is now available at the FamCamp with very good signal strength. There are new rules in place for base contractors staying at the FamCamp. After so many days (I think 60) the camper has to relocate to the back-in spaces. Also, the FamCamp now accepts reservations. The weekly rate is discounted and is $148.00 We camped at Vandenberg AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

For the price, you can't beat this campground. Unfortunately, you have to be military or government employee to use this campground. They don't have many pull-through spots (20 or so) and the Wi-Fi is only good on half of them. But it's clean, well-maintained, and very quiet. I also wish they had a limit for non-active duty people using the facilities. I am active duty and on orders, and I have to use the overflow (non pull-through slots) because they are full for the weekend. We camped at Vandenberg AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
