This is a military only Famcamp located on the Defense Logistics Depot. The phone number is for the base police. There is no phone number for the campground as there is no campground manager and no reservations are accepted. The base police were extremely helpful to us over the phone and can tell you if there are RV spaces available or not. At $15 a night it is a great bargain for full hookups on grassy sites. There is an "iron ranger" since there is no park manager. There are tons of trains all around the area so if train noise is a problem for you maybe you should skip this place. We found the train noise at night to be minimal and acceptable. We were told by the base police and several base employees that the RV park may be closing in September 2014, so call before you go. We would definitely stay here again.
This park would be rated much higher but for all the crazy rules. There are "pet sites" and "non-pet sites," and the "pet sites" are fairly limited. Plus, if the "non-pet sites" are full then Rvers without pets may use the "pet sites" but if the "pet sites" are full then RVers with pets are not allowed to check in. Also, the pet areas are extremely limited. I wouldn't call this place very pet friendly at all. The maximum stay is 180 days so there are lots of homesteaders, which gives the park a different feel than a normal RV park. They have dozens of obscure rules and placards with the rules posted everywhere. I felt like if my dog walked on the grass somebody would run up and issue me a ticket or something. Geez. When you sign in, if paying by check they require your full social security number, which is stupid and dangerous. The "free cable TV" requires that you obtain a cable descrambler box from some company, and it is available only on Monday through Friday during business hours, so if you check in after hours or the weekend you don't get cable. Overall, it was a very annoying place that was adequate for our two day stay, but it could and should have been much better.
Great park! Less than a mile from the freeway but no noticeable traffic noise inside our trailer. Very dog friendly. Gorgeous river area. The general store in the campground has an excellent supply of foodstuffs and other goods at fair prices. Friendly staff. The free Wifi worked very well. The only negative are the coin operated showers, which should be free for 27 bucks, which is the Good Sam discounted price. We would stay here again.
Camp Roberts is a military famcamp RV park. You must have a military ID of some type to stay here. It is located on the Camp Roberts California National Guard base 13 miles north of Paso Robles. The base is in horrible, decrepit condition. Shameful, actually. I feel bad for our National Guardsmen. The RV park is about four miles into the base and very poorly signed. There is road construction that makes finding it even more difficult. There are No bathrooms. Full hookups, but they are all on telephone poles. Gravel and/or dirt sites which are pretty level. Absolutely nothing around for many miles in all directions. No grass or shade anywhere. If you are looking for a one night stop over with full hookups, for ten dollars it's a good deal. For anything else, skip it.
(RVPR Admin Note: This FamCamp is now open to the public.) Very nice park with lots of grassy areas and friendly RVers. They are unusually strict about dogs being leashed all the time. The only slight negative is the bathrooms. They are old and substandard. The sinks never seem to have hot water (but the showers always do). There is some traffic noise from a distance but it didn't bother us. We always stay here when in San Diego. We stayed five nights.
We will not stay here again due to the incredibly loud traffic noise from Interstate 5, which is literally a stone's throw from all the campsites The park parallels the interstate. Even in November, with all the RV windows closed and using earplugs, yes earplugs, the noise was still so loud it made for a bad night's sleep. If you don't care about that, then stay here. The management is friendly, the price is excellent, and the park is beautiful.
We stayed here one night and did not disconnect. The pull thru spaces are less than fifty feet long,so for my 30 foot (exterior length) trailer and Toyota Tundra I was sticking out at both ends. The park is mostly permanent residents and looks shabby. Everything is clean, but very old and not updated at all. Trains pass all night within mere feet of the park on an elevated rail line and road traffic noises are also loud. Way too expensive for what they offer. I would not stay here again.
Military folks get a 25% discount!! We stayed four nights and were upgraded for free from a back-in site to a pull-through upon arrival. Huge, double wide pull-through spaces. RVers get free use of the hotel's very fancy fitness center, which also features saunas and hot tubs. What a super place to stay for an incredible bargain price. Very pet friendly, dogs are even allowed on leash inside the hotel!
We spent one night here. The sites are all concrete pads, which is nice, but they are unusually close together. There is no grass anywhere. The park was very quiet, even though it was close to a major highway. No restaurants within walking distance. Good place to stay for one night, at a very good price, but I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a day or two due to the closeness of the sites and lack of grass.
We stayed here for thirty three days. The monthly rate is $335 plus you pay your own electric bill. Ours came to $40, so it works out to about $12 a night. The park is clean,quiet, and friendly, with mostly long term folks. Nothing fancy, but the restrooms and showers were always clean,the cable TV and Wi-Fi were always available, and for the price, I had to give it a ten rating. It's about ten minutes from Austin or Bastrop, and less than five minutes to the "Hit the Spot Cafe," the best mom and pop restaurant we've ever eaten in. We'll be coming back here.
Great place to stay. Everyone we spoke to enjoyed the place. The Roadrunner Cafe is much hyped but it actually lives up to its reputation. All the other area RV places are more expensive. One minor annoyance was the Cafe waitress brought her infant children into the restaurant and fussed with them as one of them misbehaved throughout our meal.
Fort Huachuca is way out in the boondocks and the RV camp is way out on one edge of the huge base. We loved it! If you want quiet, this is the place. We went to Tombstone (20 miles away) and did the tourist thing. It was pretty good, but even better are the two military museums on the post. I very highly recommend them. They're free, and they're awesome. Also, visit the base cemetery, with graves from the 1880s, and drive up Reservoir Hill for a spectacular view.
We stayed here for two nights. Last year we stayed here for seven nights. Here's a secret: they don't accept reservations but they never turn anyone away! They have a huge dry camping overflow capacity and they charge you only eight dollars per night while you're waiting to move into a full hookup site. Great place. Watch your dog, though - lots of prickly stuff on the ground to get in his paws.
We stayed here four nights. Last year we stayed here seven nights. The place is simply outstanding. Thirty bucks a night might seem pricey but compared to all the other San Diego RV parks it's a bargain.
The manager was amazingly patient with me. I made a reservation, cancelled it a few weeks after that, then called her a few days later and told her I needed my original reservation back. She not only said OK, she was friendly and understanding about it! The park was nice, with level sites and very easy access. Walk to many different restaurants and fast food places. Even though it's right on the main drag in town it's quiet. Showers/restrooms were clean and modern. We would stay there again.
An amazing place! If the sites were any closer to the ocean they'd be underwater. Fabulous views, literally on the beach or for some sites, 30 feet off the beach. Winter special rate of $30 a night for full hookups. A little noisy from the freeway and trains, but overall a wonderful place to stay. Not much to do nearby, but with the ocean as your front yard, who cares? Very highly recommended.
