We literally limped into the campground with no brakes and a flat tire on Memorial Day. The office was closed for the holiday, but a friendly regular came out and recommended the perfect spot for us, considering that we were in need of rv repairs. It was flat, pull-thru, with shade. The next day, the manager referred a repair service truck to help us with our brake problem and we were good to go then. Everyone was friendly, and you just can't beat the price! We stayed 2 nights. We were pleasantly surprised that even though the campground is part of the air force base, it was very quiet with no sound of planes taking off.I would have liked to stay longer, but we had other commitments. I would definitely go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our experience here was not good to start. The campsite they put us in had a steep slope to it and we were going to have trouble unhooking our fifth wheel. If we had been able to unhook, we probably would never have been able to hook back up. So we asked to be moved, there was only one site left, it also had a slope but not quite as much. It was only 30 amp, but we made it work. Many of their sites have steep slopes, so be careful. Otherwise, a very pretty park with trees and good roads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Keesler FamCamp is a nice little RV park within a residential area off base. It's located less than a mile from the Biloxi VA Medical Center and a couple of miles from Keesler AFB. All the sites are wide with concrete pads and grass between sites. The restrooms and showers are clean and has good water pressure. The laundry has 5 washers and drivers that all work. Fishing is just outside the park. What more could you ask for? How about a staff that works together without bad mouthing the other staff members. How about staff that doesn't lie about the campers in order to make themselves look better. How about a management that knows how to run a RV park. Policies have changed whereas monthly rates start on the 1st day of the month and end on the last day of the month with no pro-rating. If a camper comes in on the 15th of the month and wants to stay until the 15th of the next month, the camper has to pay the weekly rate for 2 weeks the first month and 2 weeks for the following month. I feel the management does not have the best interest of the service men and women at heart. I think if we come back to Biloxi, we will stay in a commercial owned park, not the military park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park's website says pets are allowed if they are on a leash and picked up after. At the registration desk, they have a sign with little pictures of dogs and cats saying there is a 3 pet limit. We were not allowed to camp here because we have 4 parakeets. No dogs, no cats, no hamsters, nothing else -- 4 little birds all in one cage who never leave the rig. This policy is the most ridiculous campground policy we have ever seen. I hope no one with a fish tank ever tries to stay here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is vastly upgraded since last person reviewed. They've added 8 spaces. We had a marvelous time here, the staff are very cordial and helpful. This is a well maintained, well run park. Cable TV is available for all but the sites, 43 - 52. There are about 30 Katrina recovery RV's, and it'll be several more months before they're gone. IMPORTANT NOTE: With the construction of the military housing on Jim Money Road, most directions in directories will not get you to the office correctly. Here's the simple correction: go down (North) Jim Money Road, to the four way stop, turn right (East) for about 1/4 mile, turn right into the FAMCAMP. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great place for military members (active and retired). Is close to the Military Hospital. You need
transportation as it is not close to gambling casinos. Very quiet and a great staff. Will always use the CG when in Biloxi. We camped here in a camper.
