Checked in today. Wonderful experience. Camp Hostess was exceptionally polite and helpful. Originally went to Black Spruce RV Park (MWR ODR doesn't tell you if sites are available, you are told to drive to each park). Black Spruce was full. So, we came over here. Turns out we were fortunate as numerous sites (50A,30A) available. This is a great FamCamp! Downside is that long-termers take all 50A pull-thru sites... regardless of their actual power needs. Overall we will stay a week and looking forward to every hour of every day. Great place.

Stayed here 4 nites. Did not experience anything negative like other reviews. Camp has new cider type gravel throughout with nice level sites. Layout is outstanding with lots of space between sites. We used laundry and found it clean. Spartan bath house with concrete floors but clean. No sewer hookup but has dump station. Very easy access with self register no hassle check - in. Wal-Mart just out gate and base has great MWR program.

Excellent Assistant camp host, Had a great stay there. The facilities were clean and presentable. In one of the buildings where the washer and dryers were, only one washer worked, the other building had all the washers and dryers working. Highly recommend this place to stay. Easy access out Muldoon gate, everything is right there from a Lowes to a 16 screen movie theater.

If you enjoy boondocking in a wooded environment without neighbors in the immediate vicinity, yet appreciate electric and water, this FamCamp is a great fit. Neighbors are at least 30 feet away; a major mall is within a half mile; folks are generally friendly. You won't find a more pocket book friendly campground in the Anchorage area unless you need to wash more than a couple of loads of laundry each day ($1/load). Roads are dirt: in rainy times, muddy and pot holed; in dry times, dusty ... but that's the woods for you. The hosts are friendly and hardworking and wildlife pops in on occasion (moose and bear in our case.) Great hot showers. They just finished a beautiful children's play area. Just finishing up on the new dump station -- should be great. This was our second stay, and we look forward to more.

After our visit to Fairbanks (Ft Wainwright) and Denali it was indeed a pleasure to have a week long stop over at Elmendorf AFB. Our camp host Charlie is the best. Both Charlie and his fellow camp host Ray are friendly and helpful. They are to be commended for keeping such a great FamCamp. The camp ground is just inside the Muldoon Rd base entrance and very close to an excellent BX/Commissary, Shoppette Class VI and gas station. Here, diesel is available as well as propane. Downtown is just a very few miles away (4 miles) where there is a never ending itinerary of"things to do". Being a retired AF aircrew guy I enjoyed hearing and seeing the occasional aircraft and the sound of freedom. Elmendorf AFB and FT Richardson are now a Joint (super) base sharing many of the facilities.

After a week in Eielson (Fairbanks), and 2 days in Denali, this was a welcome relief. Still dirt sites and roads (common place in Alaska and Canada), but really kept up as much as possible by Roy Merritt (camp host), and Charlie. After a rain shower made new potholes in the road, Roy had someone fill them in with gravel. He even had a young man putting water on the road to settle the dust. We came back to this campground 3 times during our stay in Alaska. It is the Northernmost military campground that is worth staying at. Fairbanks and Seward- I would not return to either. Commissary and BX very handy. Moose at your doorstep. Dining facility 5 star. Only drawback was the first two loops had erratic electric. Loop nearest the busy road was the best, and road noise really wasn't a problem unless you sleep during the day. Would definitely return again.

We tried to stay at Ft. Richardson as we wanted full hookups because of the length of our visit but it was full. We then went to Elmendorf and were very happy that we did. The lack of sewer hookups was a non-event (they have double hole, very spacious dump site) and the sites were really nice. We were in site 53 which is about half way down one loop and almost level without any leveling on our part. Some of the other sites were not so level. The electrical and water was good and the site was large and even had a mother moose and her calf come through the first afternoon. The restrooms and shower were clean each time we used them. The laundry could use more machines as the three sets in our loop's laundry were going almost 24/7. Of course the campground was full and there isn't any room for more washers and dryers in the current building unless they get stackables so I don't think this will be improved anytime soon. The exchange and commissary are just a short distance away and very convenient. Cell coverage was excellent and the local Anchorage stations were available on the antenna. Overall a very pleasant stay. The rates have increased to $18 per night. I know that the MWR departments of Elemendorf and Richardson are merging and Richardson is also charging $18. I don't know if that was the reason for Elmendorf going up or not.

Not a "paved parking lot", This is a real nice campground in the woods. Has elec, water, two bathhouses/laundry rooms, and two dump stations. It's about a mile from the base exchange and mall, and only 200 yards from the hospital. Very convenient. Really appreciated all the help from the camp host. Only negative was that there were no firepits, only small grills. Over all a really nice camp.
