JBSA outdoor recreation centers modify pricing

By Alex Salinas 502nd Air Base Wing Staff Judge Advocate

Rental fees at all Joint Base San Antonio outdoor recreation centers were modified April 1, so patrons no longer have to shop around for the best deal.

While each center has its own price guide because of different equipment, charging the same for items found at multiple locations such as grills, sporting gear and watercraft "eliminates the need to compare prices," Trever Gilman, 502nd Force Support Squadron Community Services Flight assistant chief, said.

"We've been a joint base for a while, so we've merged four locations and are operating as one force support squadron," he said.

Included in the modification are recreational vehicle storage lot prices, which are now $40 per month, $100 per quarter and $300 for a year.

Some equipment fees increased, but others decreased as well, Gilman added.

"We gauged what other centers in the Army and Air Force charge to ensure our products are competitively priced," he said. "About 70 to 80 percent of our equipment (at each location) was purchased within the last three years, so we also ensure our products are quality."

By becoming uniform, outdoor recreation centers additionally ended the practice of customers giving their business to one location over another based on equipment prices.

"It's similar to how we (at JBSA) sell theme park and other attraction tickets," MariAnne Clark, JBSA-Randolph Community Services Mall manager, said. "It's the same cost across the board, which means people won't have to drive out of their way to get a cheaper item."

However, Gilman suggested checking each center's price guide and contacting them before stopping by to guarantee a desired item is on the list.

To view a price guide for JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, visit and click "FSH OEC Price List."

For JBSA-Randolph and JBSA Recreation Park at Canyon Lake, visit and click the hyperlink below "NEW JBSA Brochure."

For JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Camp Bullis, visit and click "Randolph Equip Checkout Brochure" at the bottom of the page.

Eventually, one force support squadron website with a single price guide for all JBSA locations will become available, Gilman said.

To contact an outdoor equipment center, call 221-5224/5225 for JBSA-Fort Sam Houston; 925-5532/5533 for JBSALackland; 652-5142 for JBSA-Randolph; 295-7577 for JBSA-Camp Bullis; and 830- 964-3576 for JBSA Recreation Park.
