Overall Experience
The FamCamp is in the trees with no Wi-Fi or CATV. There are no full hookup sites although there is a dump station. Charley, the Assistant Camp Host was most courteous and helpful. I did not use the showers or laundry so I cannot comment on them. If paying by credit card you have to go to the Outdoor Recreation Center Building 7301 off Jerstad Avenue. Take Provider Drive towards the Boniface Gate. Turn right on Vandenberg Avenue and bear to the left at the light onto Arctic Warrior Drive. Turn right on Jerstad Avenue and Outdoor Rec will be ahead on the right in a big old hanger building. The campground is just inside the Muldoon Road Gate on Zeamer Avenue. The gate is easily accessible for RV’s as is the Main Gate off Boniface Parkway. Take the first right on Zeamer Avenue just inside the gate and the FamCamp will be on your left just down the road past the hospital and Helipad. On weekends the gate does not open until 9AM for both entrance and exit to the base. Just outside Muldoon Road Gate on the right is the new Ta ‘Kahtau Commons Shopping Center. Some of the stores are iHop, Lowes, Kohl’s, Olive Garden, Red Robin, PetSmart, McDonalds, Subway, Target, and Best Buy. PetSmart does grooming and also has a Doggy Day Care where you can drop off your dog for a couple of hours or even overnight. Staff is available overnight but you can only pick up your pet during normal business hours. The VA Hospital is on your left when you exit the gate. There is a Gas Station/Shoppette right near the FamCamp. The large and very nice Commissary/Base Exchange is just past that. There is also a car wash next to the Shoppette. Diesel is available at the gas station. If you need any parts for your RV Mobile Trailer Supply off 3d Avenue in Anchorage has just about everything you would find in a Camping World. The easiest way to get to it is take the same route as if going towards Outdoor Rec. Take a left on Pease Road and go out the Post Road Gate. Cross Ship Creek and you will see a yellow building to your right front on the side of the hill. Turn right on 3d Avenue and then left into their location. I gave Amenities/Facilities a 3 as there are no full hookup sites.
