We stayed at Ft. Rich several times during our summer in Alaska. The first visit we only stayed in overflow for two hours before we were assigned a site. The longest we stayed in overflow was just two nights and then we were parked right across from the restrooms which was very convenient. The hosts do the best they can with what they have. The restrooms building is way too small for the size of the park with just one shower in each restroom. The building is very old and shows its age but the camp hosts keep it clean and well stocked. The campground roads are all dirt and gravel and everything was very dusty with the hot dry weather this year. We found the campsites to be large and level and easy to get into. There are several homesteaders, some that even stay through the winter. Our TV reception was spotty at best. One really great benefit was eating at the Elmendorf Dining Hall. Very good food at really cheap prices. The full hookup price of $18 is very good for the location although I think $10 for overflow it a little high.
