Our GPS brought us in the back gate on the Northwest side. The guard directed us to the Fam Camp as best he could. We found the camp w/o problems and settled in. The young staff at Outdoor Rec were friendly and helpful but not experienced. The pads are concrete and mostly level. There is "grass" (don't go barefoot as there are lots of thorns) surrounding the pads as well as some trees. The water spigot needs repacked as it leaked profusely. I noticed there was Fam Camp Wi-Fi available but did not get any password from the staff. We have our own hotspot so it was not an issue. The power went out in the camp around 0630 and is still out as I write this. (Battery powered laptop and hotspot). Retreat at 1700, Taps at 2200 were heard over the base PA System. Rats... Coffee getting cold. Overall a nice stay.

The location was perfect for me as I graduated from Altus High School and was there to attend my 50-year reunion.  The FamCamp is small and was full.  We had reservation and an assigned site number, so was able to go straight to the FamCamp.  I got set up and then went to Outdoor Recreation.  Their parking lot is not RV friendly.  I’d suggest making a reservation or checking availability.  The sites are back-in, but there is plenty of room.  The main gate was tricky to negotiate in a 39’ motorhome pulling a car.  There is a commercial gate, but it is not clearly marked.  The rate is $17 a night and the Wi-Fi worked well for us.

They did not honor the famcamp discount program and their rate was $17 night. The office is closed on Sunday, but opens 10am on Monday. The site is small with six sites back to back (total 12). The sites are not big rig friendly and do not have toilet or bath facilities. The Wi-Fi requires an access code and lost connections/required re-log-in several times while trying to check e-mail. There are several rabbits running around the area that are fun to watch. The commissary and exchange are across the street.

We went to this base because we wanted to leave our RV in storage there for the winter. It's very small & out of the way, but it worked for our purpose. The people at Outdoor Rec were very friendly & helpful. There are NO amenities in the campground besides full hookups, which was fine for us. The small town of Altus is close, with plenty of fast food & restaurants. The commissary on the base is very small & the Exchange is really for ordering. If you're traveling across country, Fort Sill or Tinker are probably better choices.

As mentioned before, this is a fairly quiet and small RV Park. There's no "amenities" in the RV Park - no restroom, no shower, no WiFi. Just FHU RV sites. However, showers can be used at the Gym and the Commissary and Exchange are across the street. This location is out of the way, so you would have a reason for coming here. But if that's the case, it's a good place to stay if in the area. Outdoor Rec staff were very friendly. This time of the year, there were a few available RV sites. We arrived without a reservation. Price is good for this military campground (maybe a little high, since there's no amenities in the RV Park). I wouldn't hesitate staying here again, if I was in this area.

The back-in cement pads are level and 40'l & 15'w. The sites are poorly identified by site number. The yellow numbers painted on the cement in the front of the site are either missing or faded to the point that you can hardly read them. There are new electrical pedestals to the rear of the pad with water and sewer located there also. The sewer drop is enclosed in a 8'x8' cement enclosure. WiFi is not available. Recommend larger units exit thru the commercial gate SE of the FamCamp. Exit on 1st St and on to Ordinance Rd and turn right on N 2070 Rd at the stop light to exit to Hwy 62. Barriers are well spaced for a safe exit. There is no shower/laundry bldg at the FamCamp. The fee of $15.00 per day is still a good value. The ITT/Outdoor Adventure Ctr in bldg 343 for registration and payment is the first bldg on the right side just south of the roundabout on 1st St. This office is closed in the off season on Wed and Sun. The staff was helpful and professional. The website does not indicate the maximum length of stay. There are a couple of sites that appear to be occupied by homesteaders. Diesel fuel is not available on base. The Altus Club which is located across the street from the commissary serves a buffet lunch from 11AM-1PM Mon-Fri. The food is excellent with a good variety and good service. The commissary is conveniently located next to the FamCamp.

Great little FamCamp if you have to be in the area. Close to everything. If you want a quiet place to camp, it's great. Neat, clean and nicely run.

lived in area and worked on base for 7 years

Always very clean, quiet. Very close to bx and commissary. As for showers, if you have a toad why not use the gym showers. Really not that far to walk if you are in good shape. Lunch at the club is very good and close by.

Small campground within walking distance of most of the facilities on base. VERY clean. Great location in Altus for house hunting, exploring the area, etc. We will be going back in the spring.

J.H. left this review using the Directory software: Small, well kept campground. Level concrete pads with full hook-ups and picnic table. Outdoor Adventure Center staff was friendly and helpful. The sign at the campground incorrectly directs personnel to check in at the bowling alley. The bowling alley personnel said the check-in moved to the ITT/Outdoor Adventure Center six months ago.

Not a bad place to stay if your looking for a break from the road. They don't have bathrooms, laundry, or wifi. Still, a quiet place, full hook ups, and only $11.00 a night. Nice place to walk the dogs, and watch the sunset. The gym is okay, commissary and bx are what your would expect from a small base.

Clean as a whistle!! Huge turn around area for backing in...nice tables, private trash kiosks, and easy to find. Only drawback is that there isn't any shower, bath or latrine facilities at the camp. Commissary and BX are across the street and within walking distance. No camp host - check in and out at the bowling alley, apparently open 24 hours a day. Can't beat the value for $11. No wifi, however there is service at the library, and also there are four computers with wired access available for guest use at the base lodging office lobby. They work very well.

Stayed here for 1 week while waiting for a house. Facilities are new, easy back in spots. Few trees for shade. Tends to flood during hard-sustained rainfall, which is rare in this area. While we were there, a storm dumped 2 inches in 25 minutes!! Got up to 3 inches deep around the trailer. The "flooding" only lasted about 30 minutes. Working on new drainage construction which should prevent this in the future. No showers and 2 port-a-potties next to the site.
