as a retiree, active , or reserve, we have the benefit of using base facilities any where any time provided the gates are open. i have camped on base in Key West fla several times for $12 a night. Key west also has BOQ room @ 30 a night, town houses @ appx $100 or so, and also trailers for $60 or so. All are secure behind the gate. I've also stayed at MacDeal AFB in Tampa. Rooms are $35 and the one time i Camped was $6 but that was many years ago. I know there are other bases with fine facilites besides these two. I've never used the facilities at NAS mayport but I see them regularly. the campground is on the water and is set up for rv's but there is a small tent section that is shaded. The navy lodge is ocean front too at $85 a night which sounds high, but compare it to $250 a night a mile down the beach and it's not bad. Newport RI has a small base...just wondering if they have like facilities? Surely there are others that might know of something.
