Many military bases have campgrounds that both active duty and retired military can use. Jim is retired from the Navy Reserves and we've stayed at nine military campgrounds in six states. This is both the smallest military facility and the smallest Fam Camp (only six sites) we've stayed at. Despite its size, it's the west coast's largest coast guard training facility and the place where coast guard support folks such as cooks, medics and electronic technicians learn to do their jobs. It's also home to the Coast Guard's Chief Petty Officer Academy. According to Wikipedia, about 4,000 people train here each year.
As a side note, my older brother called me today and told me to "tell Jim that his beloved Oregon sucks." Bob and my SIL Suzie have been in Oregon with all the crazy rain (crazy even by Pacific Northwest standards) that's been happening since last week. Bob said Oregon's had more rain in September than any September since they started keeping track. He added that even though Oregon sucks, he and Suzie still had fun.

|Our campsite pad is big -- about 30 feet by 90 feet and a spot cost us $20 a night. We met another Lazy Daze couple here, Holly and Harold, who were just 7 days into their inaugural trip in their 1989 new-to-them rig.|
