Ellsworth AFB FamCamp Featured
Jun 1-9, 2018
Used 2 full-hook up pull-through sites for 36' and 30' travel trailers. The sites are on concrete and the only leveling required was from the front hitch (front to back). The picnic tables are a touch small and anchored to the ground - we had 8 people trying to sit and that left very little room for the plates on the table. There are no fire circles due to the general fire risk of the area. The grass between the sites needed to be mowed on the day we arrived and they weren't mowed until 6/8 and the thistles were a bit out of control by then. The restrooms were really nice with free showers and free laundry! We took the advice provided on this site and left our awnings in...GREAT advice as the wind does randomly gust 25+ without warning. The indoor pool is just a lap pool and the outdoor pool is out of service for the 2018 season. (Reminder to wear full/proper coverage in the fitness building - my daughter (13) just wore shorts over her one piece swim suit and received some eye glares...oops.) We rented 2 bikes from the Outdoor Rec for $10 each. The bikes were nice, until the one ended up with a flat tire 1 hour into the use. You are REQUIRED to wear a helmet on Base, no reflector belts required. The location is great for the tourist areas as everything is about a 1 hour drive. The "closer" campgrounds to the attractions are not nearly as nice. WIFI at night was super spotty, which was nice to have teenagers engaged in the people around them as opposed to working their thumbs! Couple other points: a) The Main Gate weave around the concrete blockades are a bit tight, so caution. b) The other gates close early. c) Safety shelter is located at the Special Forces building, which is a block+ away from the camp. d) The PX/BX has very odd hours as does the Base in general, so watch times.
