We arrived on a Saturday and had to use the main gate as the commercial entrance was closed. Outdoor Rec is only open 8-12 on Saturday so we missed the office. A box on the bathhouse wall offers info and an envelope to put your payment. Be sure to read the ENTIRE posting. Hubby read a $20 fee, which we paid. I later read the posting and found it would have been $16 since we have the Senior Pass. Oh, well. Hookups worked fine. There were only 4 other campers in the park. There is a feeling of remoteness since there is nothing around. It was a good overnight stop or longer for someone who wants to decompress and get away from it all. There is no WiFi. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

In need of TLC. Sites gravel but overgrown with weeds that have not been mowed down! Bathroom dirty. One dumpster overflowing! No one around when we arrived on a Saturday - check in envelope at laundry room. No wifi, no cable but Air okay. Nice laundry room. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This was a really nice park, super wide interior roads, concrete pads and parking. Great hookups, lots of grass, free laundry, plenty of room for pets to walk plus a nice fenced in area for off leash freedom. Many sites had big trees for shade. Good WiFi, satellite, no cable and not all sites fire rings. We would for sure stay again! We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

I stayed on May 4, technically before their season begins so the shower and restroom building was not open. In any case, the water and electricity were working and this met my needs. The grounds were clean and flat and the facilities on the base were more than adequate. I used the laundry on base to wash clothes. There is no internet available at the campground. Also, something important to be aware of, the location of the water, electric and sewer are very poorly designed. They are together at the back of each pad, some a distance removed. The first pad I chose, my 25 foot electric cord was inadequate (sewer totally out to the question). Fortunately it being early and almost completely unoccupied, I took another where I could get within 25 feet of the electric. It was still not easy. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

The FamCamp location is at the end of Eileson Avenue, and I mean the end, just before a chainlink gate, then make a right and follow it down for about 1/2 mile.

One of the best parks we have used. It is out of the way; about 12 miles west of Grand Forks. Enter through the Cargo gate; the pass office is there in case all of your party does not have military IDs. However this gate was closed when we left on a Saturday morning and we used the main gate to leave. Sites are widely spaced. Grass had been recently mowed and the mosquitos were not too bad; with repellant they did not bother. Very little aircraft noise for an AF base. Exchange and Commissary are adequate for a small base.

Only down side was the very odd location of utility hookups. Took every inch of our sewer line and water hose. No cable or wifi. Picked up a number of over-the-air channels. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Forks has a number of good places to eat although the Canadians swarm in on weekends.

We stayed 5 days. We called Outdoor Rec to make sure there was available space and chose our site first before checking in. They don't assign sites anyway and we were never asked where we were parked. Grass was ankle high. The mosquitoes were constantly swarming and biting due to recent rains and tall grass. They cut the grass two days after our arrival and fogged the mosquitoes. It kept the swarms down for a couple days. There are 21 full hookup back in sites but at least 2 of them had broken utilities. Campground didn't fill up during our stay; there were always 2-3 sites empty (excluding the ones with broken utilities). There are a couple homesteaders. No playground or dog park altho there's a really nice playground and dog park in a nearby housing area. Bathhouse was clean. Laundry room was convenient and cheap. We never got WiFi to connect. Nice water pressure. Utilities are way in the back. Nice quiet campground. Mosquitoes were just really bad when we were there late July. BX and commissary are nearby. BX is closed on Sundays.

If you enter the main gate on a weekday, the guard will make you go back and enter thru the Cargo Gate. You can enter thru the main gate on weekends only. No reservations. Sites are not assigned. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This was a great campground. Only issue was no pull thrus. The sites were level and spacious. The wiFi was not working when we were there because they were changing providers. All the utilities worked great but they were located in back of sites (just a bit awkward). Quiet stay. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place.

Not much has changed since my review last year. They repaved the roads with the benefit of no more potholes. But that comes at a price as they removed potential dry camping pull outs. The campground was generally a little over half full for our visit in late July & early August with sites always available. They don't take reservations. A new MWR chief was staying in the campground in his RV and he said he intends to make improvements ... time will tell what changes, if anything. One improvement this year is the wifi. The signal was much stronger and worked well this year. Mosquitos are still thick so bring your repellent! Rate is only $12/night if you have a National Park senior pass. ATT & Verizon still give strong signals. We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice little FamCamp! They don't take reservations but the park was only half full the month we stayed there. They have 20 RV sites with hook-ups which are well spaced and very easy to back in. Hook-ups are a little odd on some sites as the power pedestal is a good 20 feet behind the back of your RV and the sewer connection is on the wrong side. All sites are 50 amp with free cable TV, although the cable wasn't working on some sites. Some sites have shade. Ample parking and space for any size rig. Follow directions on the web page to avoid the not-RV-friendly main gate. Small pay laundry worked just fine. Free Wi-Fi only worked near the laundry. It's 15 miles to Grand Forks if you need something beyond the BX & Commissary. Both Verizon and AT&T had good signals. We'll stay here again! We camped at Grand Forks AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
