We greatly enjoyed our stay, even though a bear shredded our sewer hose the first day we were there. Must've left a bad taste in it's mouth, since it didn't come back. Reservations are not allowed; but, we stayed twice, less than a month apart, and had no problems getting a site. We camped at Black Spruce RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get an installation map as soon as possible and use ITT, on base, for tour tickets (to get military discounts.) Some gates are only open a few hours a day, for rush hour traffic. There was construction outside the N. Muldoon Gate.

There is a new sheriff (camp host), in town! Dan, and his co-host, have cleaned up the mess, gotten most of the sites that were without power corrected, and are extremly proficient and running Black Spruce! ! Young recently retired desert vets; it was a great stay! The roads are gravel, but they will let you spray a little wayer to keep down the dust. They are ENFORCING the 5 mph speed limit. Dan bend over backwards to ensure we had a great stay. The hosts are engaged, but very polite, exactly what all military rv parks need. Would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. Stayed over the 4th of July and one night in August. 43 foot towing. We camped at Black Spruce RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

If you served, this is the place to stay, did not visit Elmendorf famcamp. If not eligible, avoid over night in Anchorage.

Military campground on Fort Richardson. The area is nice, the sites are OK and easy to park in. The camp hosts sites are a dump! Have never seen anything like this on a military base. Shouldn't be allowed. They have junk cars, trash everywhere on their sites. The civil engineers took all the water faucets off for the winter then "lost" over half, so less than 1/2 the sites have water. They will not allow you go buy a faucet and put on. Sad to say this is how they treat their park and the military that depend on being able to stay here. At least should have reduced the cost! We camped at Black Spruce RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
