Round Pond Family Camp, West Point, New York

Delightful setting in the woods.  Gravel sites, mostly level.  Water & Electrical (50A).  Lots of wildlife.  TV & Satellite reception is poor because of the high mountains.  Easy access to base for Commissary (large one) and Exchange.  

Caution:  Very mountainous region.  Steep grades and narrow roads.

Fort Bliss RV Park, El Paso, Texas

    Wow!  We thought West Point was a fine Army campground, this place is something else.  73 Pull-Thru spaces with full hook-ups.  These have concrete pads, picnic tables, built in grills and a lovely view of the Franklin Mountains.  Located in the Logan Heights area of Northeast El Paso it is one of the newest and most modern Military RV Parks we've seen.

    From here you're close to Downtown, the Army Base, the Airport, and even Mexico.  The club house is very nice with a kitchen for your use, exercise equipment and two, count them, TWO modem hook-ups!  Lovely showers and a very nice laundry facility.  There is even a small shopette (from the Exchange) just across the street from the park.  $90 weekly, hard to beat!

Downside:  No cable and very close to busy highway U.S. 54.
