Not sure of the reason but just received a text message from the Famcamp that there will not be any dry camping this season. There will not be any ration. Anyone heard why?

From the 6th FSS webpage:

Note: Dry camps will not be available this year, due to a CE construction project scheduled to begin in January. Thank you for your patience!

Going to be some fun for those who use that area as a stop-over in-route to the Keys.

Camping at MacDill has been disjointed and mismanaged for forever - construction work delayed and incomplete. We stopped camping at MacDill years ago, and only occasionally stopped for overnight and shopping at the commissary when heading south or returning north. Can't even do that how, it seems. This could be a PRIME camping area, but special camping privileges for some and poor leadership make it a ZERO in our camping book.

Amen, Monkey – After calling for reservations three years in a row for the FOLLOWING year, two years on October 1st, when the office opened; only to be told I would go on a waiting list. WHAT! Forget it. There are too many nice parks out there to be dealing with . . . ; you get the picture.

Currently in Arizona, temps HOT! But it’s a dry hot – LOL

Sorry I brought the subject up - was just seeking some information. I'll refrain from causing such distress in the future.

No distress here ? We thought you brought it up to get info about MacDill ... and so we gave you info.

True enough, lots of great Military CGs out there - MacDill just isn't one of them, and hasn't been for years.

Have known your feeling about MacDill for a long time Monkey and was just seeking information on the current status.

Not everyone has the same tastes so glad there more than one item on the menu.

I camped often at MacDill for years, and really like the campground itself. Was there last spring shopping at the commissary, and it hasn't changed much ... if it ever does, I'll start camping there again. It's a very nice CG, just not managed very well. Could easily become a high destination campground for AD and retired - but not if you can't get a site during the winter months ...
