Barksdale AFB FamCamp Featured
The 20 new sites are finished. They are long, wide, flat, concrete, pull-thru sites with full hookups. Still $20 a night. THEY DO TAKE RESERVATIONS NOW for the new sites. The hookups are conventionally placed and still shiny new. Driving instructions are still good. Check-in is at the old section and the new section is down the road (next right turn). The new section has its own bathhouse and laundry. The office/clubhouse in the old section is walking distance down a back driveway. This is a lovely quiet park in a secluded part of the base. Lots of tall trees around the park and deer who walk up onto the lawn. Had no trouble getting satellite DISH TV coverage. Verizon cell is pretty good. Park WIFI is weak. It is a 5+ mile drive around the flight line and down narrow tree-lined streets to the commissary and BX, but the BX and commissary are nice and well stocked. There is an asphalt perimeter path that winds all around this part of the base; great for walking and bicycle riding. There is a nearby park for children (walking distance) and lakes for fishing and hunting on base within a few miles of the park. The map of base given out at the office is really horrible, hard to read, a partial map, with an inscrutable legend, and not oriented to the compass. Manager says new brochure and map will soon be available.
