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.
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.
Check-in on week days at Outdoor Rec. Building (Until 1800) about 3 Blocks from RV spaces. The Base Gate Security were great to Check-in through. Spaces Very Clean, 1 Porto Potty, Looks like possible Tent Sites but did not Check if available. Commissary Closed on Mondays.
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.
