I've tried to find one of these 6 spots empty on 4 separate occasions in the past 6 weeks with no luck. To a casual observer it looks like the same 6 rigs are there permanently. The large friendly looking overflow lot is permanently blocked off, so no luck there. Its a 10 mile or so trip each way to get here if you're traveling on highway 2, with bad roads in Minot itself, so it seems like a long drive just to be disappointed. It sure would be nice if someone saw fit to add some spaces!
The base is located 13 miles North of town. Not to far off US2. Not for the Interstate traveler tho. The base is a busy installation with much going on. The Commissary and BX are first rate. And within walking distance of the "FamCamp". The "FamCamp" consists of six(6) concrete slabs on a tree line next to a community park. West facing with a full dose of afternoon sun. There are not options for after hours check in. Not envelopes, no drop box. Just a few rules on a sign. No contact numbers. Water was still not available. Same as last years comments. There are no other facilities available at the "FamCamp". No laundry, no showers, no restrooms unless you count the porta potties at the other end of the park parking lot. The Base Laundromat is an unmitigated disaster. Three machines. Rusty, dinged, one full of water stinking of mold.
