Visit Ft. Bliss Famcamp, You’ll Be Glad You Did!

Ft. Bliss Famcamp RV Park is located in El Paso, Texas and is in my opinion one of the finest famcamps in the system. All the park spaces are the same, elegantly landscaped with shrubs and trees. The wide pull through spaces are level concrete slabs with a large patio. Each full hook-up site has 50 & 30 amp electric outlets. They also have tables and BBQ’s at each site with plenty of extra parking. The office is efficient and staffed with helpful people. If you arrive after 1600 the night host will assist you in obtaining your site. Fees are $15.00 per night with a $2.00 discount with the Senior or Golden Access Pass. The laundry, bath and shower facilities are superb. The Logan Heights Shoppette is located directly across the street from the famcamp. Park speed limit is 10 mph. They have 73 sites and are planning to build 60 additional (and identical) sites beginning in 2008. Rumor has it that the base is also working on building a new PX and Commissary complex.

Ft. Bliss is experiencing a great deal of surge growth with the bringing in of the 1st Armor Division and 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Cavalry. The base is already scrambling to build additional new family housing units to accommodate the growth.It’s easy to get lost when initially trying to find the park, especially if you are using directions out of the military famcamp book. Save yourself the hassle and plug these coordinates into your GPS system and it will lead you to the Ft. Bliss Famcamp front entrance. 31.84052 N. 106.44324 W.

There are literally hundreds of things to do in El Paso and more restaurants than you could ever visit, so I suggest that you pick up a copy of the visitor’s guide at the park office or visit http://www.visitelpaso.com/ .

I have included the Ft. Bliss RV Park information pages for your use. You will need to copy these to your photo editing program to enlarge them.

  • Thank you for "Military RVing". As a military retiree, who with my wife will soon be entering the RV lifestyle,I will follow this blog closely. I am especially interested in the availability of space at various famcamps and the positive and negative aspects of each. I am willing to share information with you to use as you see fit.

  • This is great!! We have been fulltiming for approximately 5 years now and have been using Tinker FamCamp in OK City, OK. Did consider using other bases while traveling east but seems as though we would run across a base that had closed quite often. This will help us out immensley. We have used the book but this will be much better. Thanks to all who have made this possible for us RV'ers

  • We have stayed at several FamCamps in the southwest.
    Had a great experience at Ellis AFB at Las Vegas. The roar of jets in the morning is nicer than the freeway noise that never stops at Ft. Bliss.
    The best so far has been Ft. Tuthill, near Flagstaff AZ. Amistad near Del Pio- both are lovely places of nature.
    Grateful to my husband for staying in for the 20 years so we have this nice benefit, seems most others are being taken away bit by bit.
