This is a small base with a lot of history and character. From the red brick buildings and stables from the Calvary days to the antelope, ground squirrel,birds and cottonwoods ... it really has character. Unfortunately, the Fam Camp itself looks like it is need of some serious TLC. There is no camp host, the office personnel was on loan from Laramie and we never saw any kind of grounds keeper/maintenance while there (nor had others we spoke to....) The grass is very over grown and ground squirrels have taken over. There are 2 washer/dryer combos in the office, and at $1.75/$1.50 a load respectively, I thought that was a tad pricey for a Fam Camp. Plenty of green spaces, including dry camping in fields which looked great. The sites themselves were gravel. The base boasts two lakes and a stream. The commissary was in the process of a face lift while we were there. This place has tons of potential and I hope they clean it up. Over all we liked the base & the area and would probably still return.

Cheyenne is a nice area to visit - State Capitol worth a visit after 2018 after renovation project complete. State museum near the capitol is very worthwhile to visit. Very nice post, lots of space for running, walking, biking. Frontier Days last half of July appears to be the best time to visit. Campground appears to have issues with keeping bathroom clean on consistent basis. Hook-ups and ground maintenance was fine during stay. Pronghorns freely roaming base. Pretty impressive. Oh yeah, train runs adjacent to camp so be prepared for a middle of the night blaring horn.
