We stayed at the RV park on base. Nice little park with plenty of grass. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ. We had full hookups.

We used the commissary, BX, and several other services while on base. Large, lovely base!

I am honored to welcome many BMT families to Robin's Nest I, II, and III. The easy drive is less than 9 miles. Please see my reviews describing the convenient location to Lackland AFB from Robin's Nest I.
