GFAFB FamCamp is a very good value. For $12/night ($6) if you have a Golden Age Pass, it is very much worth it. We arrived when it was relatively full and had to park in an open area with no shade. We moved to a shaded area after a couple of days and it was very nice. The bug sprayers still drive around once a week. Good note on bringing longer cords an sewer hoses. The shaded areas have full hookups, but they are on the (PS) wrong side. Facilities (laundry and restrooms/showers) are very clean. They get serviced every day. Outdoor Rec staff friendly helpful and responsive. Campsites are level, some have campfire rings, some with and with/out shade. Maintenance on the FamCamp is sketchy. The grass gets cut weekly but 2 campsites have water leaks and the base has corrected it after two attempts. The pavement is needing repair because large trucks go through the area from one side of the base to the other. Road repair doesn't seem likely. Not sure about the future of the base. The air planes left in Dec 2010 and the rumor is the the UAV wing is ramping up to go operational with in the next year. Meanwhile, on base housing is being emptied in the older sections. All in all - it worked fine for us. The base commissary and BX are small but adequate and they have a nice 9 hole golf course. We camped in a 40' motor home and would do it again.
