Small, quiet and isolated campground located between a lake and river. No frills, but priced right!

We spent two nights at this FamCamp and absolutely loved the privacy. It is absolutely no frills, but does have electricity and water hookups. It is also located right on the Arkansas River, so bring your fishing poles. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT go by the driving directions as listed. The FamCamp is very remote and I suggest you get an escort (they did this at the gate) but getting to the gate is very easy. There is only 2 turns off 530. Call the gym and get reservations or if you are coming in after hours like we did, just get an OK and check in the next day. This is a great place to just chill out and relax. Small town close by has stores etc.
B.VW. left this review using the Directory software: - We arrived at the commercial gate after hours and found it to be closed. We called the number on the door for security and a very nice guard came to the gate and let us in. He advised us that he thought the campground was closed but led us back to the area anyway. We found 4 empty sites with electric and water. The grass was cut and the area was clean. I drove to the MWR building the following morning to register. The girl working was not familiar with any campground so she called the MWR manager who said we could stay if we wanted. There were no facilities available. We stayed two nights and paid $8 per night. It was quiet and peaceful. Loved it. I guess it just depends on who you make contact with upon arrival whether you can stay or not.

Was turned away at the MWR desk who explained RV park was out of service. Electrical problems "or something" with no money for repair. No estimate when might be reopening.

Stopped by to check up on this rarely used campground. Being a "closed post", due to being an arsenal, security was the most difficult part. Follow the above instructions, be patient, and all will be over with quickly. Gym staff was very helpful. Finding the campground was a bit confusing, but I think we've made clear directions. There's not much to say about the campground. Old, neglected and rustic. Sites back up to trees and the river. Satellite reception wouldn't be a problem. The electric boxes, picnic tables and BBQ's are falling apart. Plenty of room for large rigs to maneuver. This is a quiet location, as you're away from all other base activity. For a private and quiet campsite, without any frills, this is a good place to stay with great rates.

Pine Bluf is a great stop over. They only have 20 amp service, no sewer, but they do have water hook ups. They also have a dump station, but not water at the DS. There are only four sites, at a cost of $5.00, or $15.00 a week. They have a two week max stay. The Campground is located between a lake and a river. The sites are large, can accomadate any rig. Our internet card worked good, Satellite was quick and easy to set up. Cell phones worked great also. It does take a little to get on the Post. You have to go to the Dexter gate, and go into the entry control point. It took about 30 minutes to get the pass. You must have a driver license when you go into the control point. They check to see if you have any felonies, DUI's, and other stuff. If so, you will not be granted access to the post. You must keep the pass for your and your spouse with you at all times. After you attain your passes you go to the gym to pay for your site. Get direction to the campsite, it is a little hard to find. All in all a great place to stop for the weekend or just a couple of days.
