Just was on Luke AFB this morning and the field that will have the new Famcamp is getting a final grading.
Next will be the site surveyors to mark out utilities routes, roadway and RV spaces.

Will keep you posted here if I see any further progress..

Here's a satellite photo of the new Luke AFB FamCamp location.

Just curious; are they going to demolish all those houses and put in RV pads?

I think that's an old satellite photo. The houses are already gone. Yes, they plan to put in RV pads and buildings.

This video was made of the location in December 2017 by a website user. It shows the area better.

Just was at Luke AFB and actually the new Famcamp area has some action going on.
They have piles of large rocks all around the area.
Maybe they plan on protecting all the electrical panels with them so no one hits them. lol
or
Maybe they will put at the edge of your pad so you don't drive on the grass and break the sprinkler system and cause ruts.

Anyone else have any ideas?
Will keep you posted on any more action.

Was on Luke today 10/17/18 and they have all the big rocks up against the back fence. They haven't done much else.
Really looking forward to this famcamp opening.

Was at Luke a couple of weeks ago. Nothing appears to be happening with the FamCamp. Anybody heard anything new? Maybe a email to FSS might shed some light on what is going on.

A recent call to MWR resulted in the response: "The new FamCamp hasn't been funded or designed." They still hope to have it completed in 2019. Hmm.. we're told it's funded and designed, now they tell us something different. I'm doubtful it will be completed in 2019.

An update was posted a month ago (December 2018). This is the most recent status that I have:

There is no major update for the "groundbreaking." Contract has yet to be awarded. Wouldn't expect anything remotely resembling progress, let alone opening until earliest 2020 personally. We are stationed at Luke and drive by the Lot every day, will be here for next 2 yrs. If I see something will post something.

NEWS FLASH! May 24, 2019
Good news Everyone.
I just received information from a reliable source at Luke AFB that the
contract for the NEW Famcamp construction was released last week.
The next step is a meeting with the contractor to set direction, timelines and set a completion date.

I will update here with any future information.
