I just recently sold my house & decided to travel full time now. My family been traveling now for almost 2 months, been in 4 Military Campgrounds, I would say that McConnell Fam/Camp offers the most. It is my very first time experience in military campground & I never find FREE LAUNDRY from any other Campgrounds, but McConnell. It is a big thing when you are traveling with 4 other persons. McConnell also offers free fishing without requiring any state license which my kids had a blast. The very nice bath house/ restrooms/laundry also housed a FREE ICE cubes which I found it very helpful in many ways. No other campground offers this kind of freebies. Yes, this place could use tree shades, but it compensates in other ways. I loved their 2 miles rubberized padding pathwalk. It makes my morning run so easy & it runs right behind the RV park. I would definitely come back.
Very nice new campgrounds. The only drawback (reason for a 4) in my opinion is the lack of shade and the height of the sewer drain connection. It's a chore to get the hose drained when breaking camp. The new sites are located on the old Twin Lakes golf course. Some of the cart path has been turned in to a fitness trail. Signs have been added that direct you to the new sites. There are two new tornado shelters located close to the sites. There's also a commercial size ice machine in the laundry facility. Make sure to bring your dog's shot records in to the Air Capital Inn when you register. The Rock Road gate is open 24 hours. A sign instructs RVs to take the far right lane upon entry. Reservations taken at the Air Capital Inn were quick and easy. Al sites are pretty much the same, no shade in any of them. Nice playground if you have the kiddies with you. Also, nice large covered picnic area available close to the sites.
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.
Stayed here 3 days on our way north. You can make reservations. Very quite and relaxing. I totally agree with the prior poster, Very nice rec area. We have a 40 ft. 5th wheel and fit in easy. All sites pull through. Has a 2 small ponds. Had water, electric, & sewer hookups at our site. Direct TV, Verizon cell & Internet worked great. Paid $18.00 per night. FamCamp is on base and easy to get to. Check in is at the Air Capital Inn, 3rd right once you are through the gate. Not far from shopping and dining out. Washers & dryers free. I'm not a numbers rater, either I like a FamCamp or not. Well I like this FamCamp. Will stay here again.
We stayed here in a Motorhome. This campground is so much better than what they had, the spaces have a 60' concrete pad and the entire spot is approximately 80' with gravel at each end. Each spot has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a playground for the kids, laundry and bathroom/shower facilities. In a conversation with one of the outdoor rec folks I was told that there are plans for 10 more spots, all the same size as the current ones. The plan also includes the closing of the older camp. The two ponds have fish, catch and release only, and no license required. Check in is at the Air Capital Inn not outdoor recreation. Access to the laundry is at outdoor recreation where you get an access card for the reader on the laundry door, there are two washers and two dryers, all free. The famcamp is big rig friendly. We had good satellite and Verizon WiFi reception. I will stay here again when I'm in this area. This famcamp is one of the better campgrounds in my experience.
