Well worth the stop, especially at $0 per night. It takes a little coordination, and if you're a drop-in after normal duty hours or the weekend, you won't get a spot with power until the next duty day. We stayed there for one Friday night the weekend before the 4th of July and all the neighboring campgrounds, including Offut AFB FamCamp, were full. We took a chance at Ashland to see what was there and were the only campers there. We enjoyed it immensely even without electric service. According to the gate guard (very friendly and helpful), billeting runs the campground and they had left for the day. Great view, quiet, with a flock of visiting geese. Really nothing provided at the campground to do but that was fine with us. No facilities on the installation (BX/PX, Commissary, etc). The entire base is well groomed and taken care of. The scrap pile in the photo section is gone. The lake was experiencing an algae bloom at the time and was closed to swimming.
