Dyess FamCamp is overpriced for the area, for the campground, for the space, and for what it offers. Many much better, much nicer military Famcamps are way less money.

This is basically a parking lot, with short sites, spaced closely together. The back in sites are not even numbered so that those arriving with reservations know which site to park in! Sites are short, and pretty close to neighbors considering the vacant base land all around.

There are many homesteaders, and they occupy many of the pull thrus. Move the homesteaders to the back ins, and let those passing through have the pull thru sites.

The bathrooms don't even have hand soap at the sinks. The information board on the outside of the laundry/shower facility has no information on it. The folder with "base maps" inside the laundry room has no maps in it. We have stayed in Famcamps across the nation, and even at $25 per night this one would still be overpriced. Truly, this Famcamp is a disgrace in the overall system.

The only thing saving this campground financially and for occupancy appears to be the long term homesteaders paying by the month. We camped at Dyess AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We went to the campground coming in off the road and there were no available sites. The next day we went back and got a site and the next morning we were told we had to leave because our site was assigned to someone else. We were not told this the day before. It appears that Dyess FamCamp is for homesteaders or people living on base who choose to stay in the campground instead of living in base housing or off base. Don't bother to stop here hoping to get a place to stay for the night or multiple nights because the homesteaders have it locked up. We camped at Dyess AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Dyess AFB just opened their FamCamp last summer. They have 18 concrete pads that are approximately 45' long and very wide. Sites are nicely spaced with about 20' of grass between each one. All roads are paved and it's easy in/out. Each site has full hookups including cable. When I checked in, I was told the cable was out at my site but I think it was just a temp thing. Each site has a picnic table and outdoor grill. There is ample parking and light at night, plus you are on the base with other military & retirees so security is no concern. WiFi worked sporadically, but I got a great signal on my Verizon WiFi. ATT showed 3/5 bars & LTE signal. The camp has a small pay laundry and small shower/bathroom facility. They do take reservations, but the site I was told to go to on the phone was occupied. Luckily, there were two open sites so I got one. I don't think they have tight control on reservations versus available spots and folks are used to just pulling into any open spot at FamCamps. There are 6 concrete pads adjacent to the camp that I presume they use for dry camping overflow. I thought $35 a night was pretty steep given they have no other amenities like playground, pool, dog walk, propane, or camp store. But their weekly rate of $130 seemed fair if you are staying that long. I rated the park lower due to high price and lack of amenities compared to other camps in that price range. We camped at Dyess AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
