We decided to take our travel trailer out of mothballs to sanitize the water system and check out all the appliances and lights. Since we store our trailer on Pope Army Airfield it was only a few miles to the Smith Lake Army Travel Camp. For $28 we were able to park on a level concrete pad with full hookups to fill our fresh water tank with bleach solution, run it through the plumbing, and let it stand overnight. The next morning we drained and rinsed it all into the sewer. We also checked out the A/C and the microwave on shore power. Smith Lake is located off of Honeycutt Road about a mile and a half south; there are small signs designating the turn. For those who have camped here before, the layout has changed and check in/out is done in a large gray building near the old beach across from the picnic areas [NOT Bldg. Q-3250 as depicted in the MWR webpage]. We did not stay in the trailer overnight, so we did not inspect the bath house or laundry or check for internet access. The roads into the campsite are gravel and threw up a lot of dust, but the spaces in the full hookup, upper circle, are level concrete with adequate space between. The main post is roughly seven miles west, where one can visit the two Commissaries and PX's. There are several gas stations and shopettes, the nearest of which is located four miles away on east post, just off Honeycutt Road. If we needed to camp in the Fayetteville area this is probably the place we would choose.
