Directions are good; no problem finding the base and site. It's several miles off I-40, not a problem but unexpected. We didn't go into Little Rock but if that's someone's plan be prepared. The site is in a nice location on the base, convenient to the BX/ commissary and shopped. The sites area pretty basic and seem to be maintained in a haphazard manner. The bathrooms/showers are old and were dirty; seriously dirty. We met the host who had us put cash in a box at his trailer; pretty simple. The site is pretty sparse but satisfied our basic needs. We would stay again. Staying there is a value and not to far off the beaten path.

Most of the sites are now full hook-ups, with 30 and 50 amps. There's still about 7 sites without sewer, but it's getting installed at them. We spot checked a number of them and they all were full hook-ups. The front 10 sites have shared hook-ups which means you need long electric plugs and water hoses. The back sites have normal hook-ups. When we arrived at the campground the grass was very high but later in the day they were mowing. Now there is freshly mowed grass just outside my front door. We stayed in a motorhome and would stay again. Still no wifi on site but we had good Verizon signals.

We spent two nights there, and it is a decent place and good price for what they have to offer. My wife was not excited about the 0700 revalee that they blast like an air raid siren all over the base every morning however. The shower house could have been cleaned better than it was, but it was still not awful. Until they finish modernizing one side of their campgrounds, they only had 8 usable sites when we were there. Two of the 10 sites are used by camp hosts, and all but 2 sites seem to be taken by long term users. We were told that they don't expect to have the other sites operational until March or April of 2013. All that said, if you can get a spot, it is still a great value for $12.00 per night with full hookups.
3-5 May 2012
We spent three nights, we enjoyed our stay, facilities were nice. The camp host tries to keep the camp as nice as he can. Like all bases any profits made have to be shared with all MWR facilities so if all facilities aren't making money all suffer. The park is in a wooded area so the snakes were active. Would be nice if base could help clean up and cut undergrowth back. There are a lot of facilities in walking distance, a couple of miles. We used bowling alley and Hangar 1080 (Club). There were plenty of open spots while we were there. TV antenna picks up major stations and I have a card for my computer and it worked well.

Perfect place to stop on our journey. Arrived in the dark but host was "johnny on the spot". Showed us an open spot and was very helpful with information we needed. Great value. We did find out that the phone number provided for "open slots" is only manned until 1300. Nice Base.

Just stayed one night, but the host was friendly and helpful. Fine laundry facility and great showers.
Nice location. Easy in and out. Exchange Shopette with gas station is right next door. There are approximately 12 sites for big rigs with full hookups. Many more with 30 AMP service on gravel with no sewer hookup. Local 14 TV stations available with an antenna. No reservations are can be made, first come first serve only. There is a 14 day stay limit but it seems to be elastic. The biggest negative is the lack of WIFI on the base. There is no Internet access in the Fam Camp or at the BX/Commissary. The only place to get a WIFI signal is at the base library. Laundry and restrooms are clean but not exceptional. A refusal by the base mowing contractor to mow because of cable and sewer pipes on the ground has caused the Camp Host to acquire a riding mower and weed trimmer to keep the place looking good. He and Assistance Camp Host mow the area.

Compared with other Famcamps and military campgrounds, we found this location to be just average in facilities and value. Fairly easy to find, all of the back-in full-hookup sites were filled, but there were plenty of pull-thru 30A/W sites in the back. The sites are elevated concrete pads, good sized but a bit short, with pea gravel patio area and table. The host was friendly and accommodating. It appears that there are a number of long-term residents; at least five of the 10 full-hookup sites, of which two are hosts, had an accumulation of items, and our site looked into a ramshackle trailer complete with piles of clutter and large fenced kennel with barking dogs. Nice base facilities, and it was quiet over the weekend. An OK stop, but one we wouldn't go out of our way to stay at again.
I am wanting to know why is there Civilians living at the campground like I found out that space #8 is a assistant camp host and I didn't like her altitude at all trying to be all boss she is very rude person and a Civilian worker using our Military benefits we all served the Military so we all deserve our benefits at our Military campgrounds. So really unless her or her husband is a DOD civilian why are they allowed to live there and use our campground? And about the prices why are we all paying the same amount for full-hookups if we don't have them we should pay a cheaper price for just electric and water. The campsites were nice but the restrooms could be kept cleaner their were dead bugs on the floor and it look like someone tried to clean up the restroom but they got the toilet paper wet it looked like someone sprayed it down with a water hose because there were also water dripping off the walls where is the real camp host and what does he do I never seen him there and what exactly is his job. I would consider coming back again when space #8 leaves. And also I noticed that their were some more sites needed cleaning up around their campers especially the lower levels come on guys you have full-hookups keep it clean one camper even has a porch build on to his camper.

Stayed for a few days for Thanksgiving week. We also stayed in the "back 40", with no sewer. But that was alright with us. We did use the dump station when leaving. There were available sites all week. However, the FHU sites were full when we arrived, but a couple opened up after one night. We still stayed in the back lot. It does seem like a few long-term residents are taking the FHU sites. Camp host was gone on vacation, but other campers were helpful. We registered at MWR, which were friendly and helpful. They had a base map for us there. Campground is a little run down and old, but not terrible. We enjoyed our visit here and would return. Price is PERFECT for the facility and a military benefit.

FAMCAMP was clean and camp host was friendly and helpful. He met us at our site - we just drove in and picked one. Registered and paid on-site. We stayed in back portion where only 30 amp electricity and water were available. Had no problems though. We had a pretty muggy night because of recent rains - nothing camp host can do. However, the road near the showers/laundry was muddy - needs quite a lot more gravel in this area. In fact, roads throughout could use a little maintenance. Would be nice if WIFI were offered. Also, I would recommend a FAMCAMP sign be posted at the first intersection. This is a three-way intersection and easy to miss as I was looking for a four-way intersection. Easy to get to correct road by going around the quadrangle where the static displays of aircraft are. I liked having the gas pumps nearby. YOU CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE!!

Only stayed one night, called ahead to see if there was room, they said come on in plenty of room, when we arrived there was only two pads left. Went to office to pay, this web page has it listed as building 640 when in fact it is building 460, Rec Office. The Rec Office showed 6 pads open, only two were open, not the best system for keeping track of the pads, was a very nice place, the front area has full hook ups and was full, the back area is nice with water and electric. No problems.

Like most reviewers, we parked in the back area. The front stayed full the whole time we were here. They allowed us to extend our stay past the "7 day limit". Back area is far nicer than the front even though there are no sewer hookups. Large sites with pull throughs. First time I ran into 30 Amp on a GFI circuit. Had to bypass my Autoformer or the CB would trip. My surge protector did not cause any problems. Water spigot leaked when on so we filled the tank and left it off unless needed to avoid flooding the site. Reported the problem, but no action on it while we were here. Nice base. Enjoyed our stay.

I would tend to agree with many of the comments about the LRAFB FamCamp, especially those comments regarding the front (FHU) area. We stayed almost a week in the back area, which we found to be much nicer than those in the front, though without sewage. Our fur-baby did not encounter any ticks, so that was a relief, nor was dog droppings a problem. We noticed all the pet owners picking up after their pets did their Ëœbusiness". Complaints: One site in the front area is designated Ëœshort-term" - I am not certain as to what that term means at LRAFB, as the site was occupied when we arrived/departed by the same person? The FamCamp seems to be the base tourist attraction as we witnessed NUMEROUS cars driving through, obviously just looking at all the campers/RVs. While the FamCamp is quite safe, we never saw a security police vehicle, the camp host, or anyone from Rec Services in the campground monitoring what was happening, or who was there. At least two RVs were unoccupied in the back area, without any indication they paid for their spots, and, one couple drove in late/left early - did they pay, I do not know, but they did not display a receipt on the post provided. At $12/day, the price is great, and the overall condition of the park means we will return!

We liked this campground but found the layout kind of weird. The front 10 sites with full hookup are not at all well spaced. One site may have a large front grassy area and the one right next to it doesn't have any front (awning side) area at all. We were in site #5 and couldn't even open our slide on that side. We did have a wooden deck for a patio where most have only a gravel pit. Some even share driveways. The driveways are real long but you have to back way into the slots in order to reach the hookups. Sites share posts so every other site has to run their electric and water under their RV. We got good satellite and good Verizon phone service. Good large tar pavement for backing the RV. Concrete level pad, picnic table, close to dumpster, good commissary, only 20 minutes from downtown Little Rock. Nice asphalt walking path through the woods, probably about a mile in length. We never did see a FamCamp host if there is one. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome and would come back. The front sites have one or two empty sites each day and the back was only 1/3 or less full.

It is strange that the bigger/wider, "nicer" sites - with "patios - in the back CG are only 30 Amp and have no sewer. The lower section (although not as secluded) had full hookups. We selected the lower area only b/c it's all paved (great for scootering) and close to the park (I could see the kids). It's also closer to the garbage and recycling (everything except paper, but they have that near the commissary!!). The shower/laundry is midway between the two areas. We got one of three sites that have a patio area off to the side of our pad. Although there are also gravel sites (and I'm not sure of thier levelness), all the concrete sites throughout the CG seemed very level. The CG is very near everything; a shoppette with movie rentals right out the FamCamp entrance, and the BX/Comm up the street a couple miles. The Commissary had some organic, like milk and a few other necessities, but we ended up "mapquesting" Wild Oats and heading into Little Rock (30 min). We paid $14/night so rates must have gone up...
