We stayed here for almost a month. The FamCamp itself is on the older side, but construction is now underway on 48 new sites where the infamous goathead field was. When that is completed, they will upgrade all the existing sites. While we were there all the laundry machines were replaced. While the construction is underway, you might want to camp on the west side of the campground due to the large amount of dust blowing off the construction. You're a long way from the runways, so it is pretty quiet for an AFB. **During weekdays, USE THE EUBANK BLVD GATE! It is straight through, no zig-zags in or out, and it is the closest to the FamCamp - a straight shot of less than a half-mile. On weekends, the Truman St. Gate (located off Gibson Blvd just west of the VA Hospital) is the preferred gate because it too does not have zig-zags. You'll have to wind your way through the base to the CG, but there's no traffic. Of course, if you've got a smaller rig, go for the Wyoming or Gibson Gates on weekends. Go out the Eubank Gate and you'll find Costco, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart south of the Interstate, other big box stores just to the north. So far as the comments on the grouchy camp hosts, some are justified, some not. We personally had no problem with them. (Just remember the honey and vinegar routine.) We will stay here again. It is a great location to explore the area, very handy to the interstate (Eubank/I-40 or Gibson/I-25).

An exceptionally clean, well-maintained FamCamp with helpful camp host. Office/rec room is small and cramped. Nearby Exchange/Commissary are small but adequate. Take the Commercial Gate if you're driving anything larger than a small camping van. It is well-marked off the interstate from the west.

This is a nice place to stay. The Billeting Office handling the RV campground is friendly and efficient. Reservations in season are apprently recommended, but we took a chance and just drove in and got a spot no problem. It is a completely paved parking lot-style campground, but very clean and the sites are of adequate size. Would definitely stay here again.

The Air Force FamCamp suffers quite a bit in comparison with the Army facility right next door. However, it does provide the basics and is conveniently located right on the highway just north of town with a Safeway market nearby. If you fish, this is a great place. If not, it is a moderately run-down campground with an occasional bear begging fish scraps. The staff was helpful, although there were non-DOD campers who admitted to me they were there with the connivance of the staff. Lots of traffic and little or no security. I would, however, stay there again. Far from the worst campground we've seen!
