Just entered Kirtland using US Military Camgrounds website for RV Gate (Eubanks Gate). RV Gate has apparently changed to the Truman Gate, on Gibson St, west side of base.
They let us in at Eubanks, but a very tight fit. Safe travels.

Thanks for the note. The website already states to use the Truman gate

Large Rigs should use the Truman Gate. ---- Truman Gate (open 24/7): Due to blocked roads, rigs now enter the campground from the end of the campground closest to the Eubank Gate which means the signs for the campground are not easily seen. Take I-25 Exit 222A East Gibson Blvd SE (From I-40 take I-25 South) In 2.8 miles turn right on Truman, Continue through Truman Gate, Continue Straight to T in road which is Randolph, Turn left on Randolph, Turn Left on Hardin, Hardin will become 20th St SE, Stay in left lane to go straight across Ave G at Stop Light (right two lanes will exit base through the Eubank Gate). Take First left into Campground. You will see the Storage Area first, then the newer area of the campground followed by the Campground Office in the older section of the Campground. There is a sign by the office but it is difficult to see when entering from the east end of the campground. Recommend Big Rigs park in the large gravel area in front of sites 80, 82 & 84 (see park map) and walk to office to register. ---- If less than 30' in length (total), you can use the Eubanks or Gibson gates. But these gates are still difficult to navigate in a RV.


Please let me know if this is wrong.

Beware!!! I have gone in the Eubanks gate multiple times...until my latest trip. I was stopped approx 100 yards from the gate by an SP. He said I couldn't enter through the gate because of my size (Class A/36 ft with Jeep). I stated that I have been through the gate before, but he still wouldn't let me in. I was stopped in traffic at the gate and he didn't even help me turn around (if I had been 10 yards closer, I would have had to drop the Jeep to backup and make the turn. I was routed to the Truman gate thru downtown traffic and 45 minutes later I was at the Famcamp RV area....that's 1/4 mile from the Eubanks Gate. I sent a note to the base and didn't even get a courtesy response! Very unfriendly attitude to retired military! (I go in the Truman gate now to avoid the hassle) Positive note...the gas station has diesel.
