One of the smaller famcamps we have visited this year. The new rate is $17.00 a night for 2018. There are 12 sites with concrete slabs, picnic tables, BBQ grills, grass and shade. Location is next to the BX and Commissary and gas station. No restrooms or showers but very quiet and restful. Would stay here again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
