The campground is clean, well marked, wide and long pull through spots. The laundry room, restrooms and showers were also clean. There are no trees, as you would expect for the area. The view of the mountains on all side is simply beautiful. Every evening we were there a refreshing breeze blew through and cooled everything down. A great place to stay while we explored Great Sand Dunes National Park.

We were traveling West and needed a one night stop. Not many options available to us, so found Base Camp Family Campground. The campground is located outside of town, and entrance was hard to find (actually missed the turn). While it has full hook-ups, it is in the desert, and has NO shade. It is a wide open campground. It looks like they are trying to make it more attractive, but very basic. The restroom was clean and facilities well kept. OK for one night.

Easy access, clean,great sceneries, Close proximity of Great Sand Dunes. This place is young and improving. We will stay here again. WiFi worked well, clean facilities. Close to Alamosa, recommend the Safeway grocery store.

Lots are minimally stoned with overgrown sagebrush. Bathrooms were nice in that each was a locked room with toilet, sink & shower. They were big, but dirty. Water pressure was minimal. No trees or shade.

My family and I tent-camped here (Site #19) for four nights while on vacation, and were happy with the experience. The camp ground is conveniently located between Alamosa (restaurants , groceries, Walmart & sandboard rentals) and the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Our site was furthest from the road, which has a fair bit of traffic during the day, but drops off to almost zero at night. The tent sites are large; big enough for a vehicle and family-tent, and have a fire pit, picnic table and metal trash can. We took our tent down each morning, as the desert vegetation does not do much to break the gusty winds, which can be strong during the day. I noticed a pop-up tent at a neighboring site did not survive the desert wind, so decided it was better to be safe than sorry. The shower house has four large bathrooms with toilet, chair, sink, paper towels and shower in each. One has a hand-held sprayer for the handicapped. Be patient with the hot water, it will come eventually. It helps to turn it on, then brush your teeth. I hate to waste water in the desert, but I’m not going to stand in cold water to save the planet! I hope something can be done to increase the water pressure, as that is the only complaint. Not really from me, but my wife, who needs a lot of flow to get the shampoo out of her hair. The bath house has laundry machines, but we did not use them. Water for those with tent sites is located near the shower house, which can be inconvenient if you have one of the more remote sites. We brought a 5 gallon water container, so it was not a big deal. Wood for the fire pits is available for purchase from the campground host. The WiFi is strong, and reached out to the farthest corners of the facility. I wish I had such a strong signal at home. I did not tell my kids about the WiFi, so they actually had to talk to us.
