A lovely forested campground next to a pretty lake. Easy in and out for our 38' motorhome and toad. Adequate amenities; pull-throughs with 30 amp power and water (which is terrible and iron colored), 3 washers and dryers for $1.50 each, shower and restroom for those that need it. Some sites are alleged to have 50 amp, but which ones is not clear. Nice small commissary and exchange on base. A typical ho-hum FamCamp, but very convenient for exploring around Fairbanks. Verizon phone and ATT hotspot worked great. We camped at Bear Lake FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed our 6 day stay, even with the camp being right at the end of the runway. Yes, it needs some landscape attention and clearing and serious pothole filling. The restrooms are kept clean and stocked, but they have no one available during off post hours. The water is yucky, but in fairness, it is what it is ... a remote mil base camp. Smells like a lot of iron in the water, leaves hard stains. Eielson and Wainwright are both great bases. This has 22 RV spaces and 15 tent sites, and plenty of mosquitos to go around. We camped at Bear Lake FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

This park is still a mess. The vegetation is overgrown in many of the sites. There are many downed limbs and branches that have not been cleaned up. We never ever saw anyone attending the place while we were here (four nights). It has the potential to be a lovely little RV park with a little more TLC. Also, the water was foamy and had a strange odor so we were afraid to drink it or even shower in it. The lake front was mowed and there was a single picnic table by the waterfront. We camped at Bear Lake FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This campground is an overgrown mess. If something is not done soon, the sites will be overtaken with vegetation. We had to to do considerable trimming to get into our site both above and on the sides. The mosquitoes were so bad that sitting outside was impossible. Did not use the bathhouse but did use the laundry which was reasonably priced and adequate. Verizon cell/MiFi worked well. Payment is made by drop box and we did not see any sort of employee during the time we were there. BX and Commissary were nice since prices are so high in Alaska. Bear spray is a must if you plan on walking around. There was a big rat trap at the dump station. Easy drive into Fairbanks. We had our mail sent to the North Pole Post Office. All in all, this is not a good military campground. We camped at Bear Lake FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites were well spaced with bushes between them. Dump station was convenient. Laundry room was very clean and very reasonably priced. Only downside was it was 21 miles from Fairbanks. We camped at Bear Lake FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
