2-3 Nov 13
A reservation (recommended) was made and check-in at Bldg 196 Air Capital Inn, which is required, went very well. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Fam Camp. A map was provided for directions to the FamCamp. There are no direction signs from the Air Capital Inn to the FamCamp. It's very easy to miss the turn that takes you on the east side of the water tower on Mulvane Rd and also the turn that you must take to the right on Russell Rd after you pass the Outdoor Rec office Bldg 1349. There is no sign for directions to pull in to the right to the sites off of Russell Rd. The new lighting on Mulvane Rd is really a great improvement all the way down to Russell Rd. There is no lighting in the FamCamp other than the lighting on the electrical posts. The 10 sites are all pull-thru and the full hookup utilities for the sites are well positioned on the 15' x 60' cement pad. Beware that the water pressure may be pretty high. It was 80+ psi at the time I set up. The top of the sewer drop is approximately 10" above the ground which makes it a challenge to get the sewer hose put in place so it will drain. There are two pair of free washers and dryers in the laundry/shower building which is located at the FamCamp. A pass key can be obtained at the Outdoor Rec office Bldg 1349. Satellite TV reception is not obstructed by any trees. There is no WiFi. There is a small lake with catch and release fishing available. There is a new playground. The Commissary is of average size and the remodeled BX is small but adequate. There is no diesel fuel available on base. This new FamCamp is now a convenient place for an overnight or an extended stay.
