Do NOT follow your GPS to this base. It will try to put you through a closed area. Use the Arnold Gate. There are ten spaces in a row next to two catch-and-release ponds. A tornado shelter sits at either end of the row. Free laundry is available with two washers and two dryers. FHUs worked fine. Grass was cut and the area was clean. There is an abandoned golf course next to the campground (no golf course on a military base/post??). You check in at the Inn then drive to the campground. We never saw anyone from the ODR while here for two nights. Wichita has lots to see. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our check in process was a circle jerk. I don't want to take away from the rating of the park, but I have to mention our check in process. We went to the park before we went to Air Capital Inn because we missed it (Air Capital Inn) while driving in. I called them once we reached the park because there is no host or office. Rather than tell us where to park and go to Air Capital after we set up, they told us we had to pull the rig back through the base to check in. And, I would mention, the parking lot at the Air Capital Inn is NOT big enough for a big rig. Then they wanted the vaccination records for our indoor cat. Those records were under the bed and I needed to get the slide out to get the records. He actually hesitated to allow us to go set up and bring the records back to him. As it was, he gave me 30 minutes to get back to him. As for the park....it is very nice and small. There are 10 spaces and all pull throughs set at a good angle and utilities were convenient. They have 2 tornado shelters on either end of the park, a pretty little pond for catch and release, 2 pavilions for gatherings, and a very large park-like setting on the other side of the park with a walking/running track. There is plenty of room between each site. There is no wifi, but Verizon had a good signal for hotspot. It is also open for good satellite dish reception. My only complaint about the park is that, by the time we left after 7 days, the grass was close to knee high. That surprised me - especially for an AFB. I really have no complaints about the park - just the check in fiasco. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with long, level, concrete, pull thru sites. Picnic table and fire ring at each site. Catch and release pond, play area, tornado shelters and an awesome fitness trail. Commissary and exchange on base. We stayed in Fam Camp 1 which had FHU. Great place to stay. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Wish they had more than 10 spots. Have stayed here multiple times while visiting family. There is a very nice fishing lake, FREE laundry, picnic tables and fire pits. McConnell has a commissary, Class 6, and BX. Wichita is a nice size city with all accommodations nearby. All sites are large pull thrus. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This is a Military Base Famcamp. Only active and Retired Military are allowed. They can sponsor guests with base commander approval. They have 10 pull thru's with full hook ups. Quiet. They have wash room and laundry with free wash and dry. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Base has nice BX and Commissary. Wichita is close by with all shopping within 5 miles. New Costco within 3miles. Air museum is across base. Many things to see in area. IE Zoo, Keeper of the Plains statue , Animal park(Tanginika), others.

Overall Rating:

McConnell AFB Famcamp (it doesn’t even have a name ) was a disappointment as far as military campgrounds go. On the plus side, the FHU rate is good, the location, once you find it, is beside a no license required, catch and release fish pond and adjacent to what looks to have been the former base golf course. The camp coordinates are: 37.62247, -97.25131. This is where the plus ends. Getting to the actual base is through some busy city streets. Once at the main gate the barriers are challenging for a RV with a tow vehicle. Once at the registration building we were given some confusing directions ( poor map ) to the Famcamp and to make it worse, there was no signs to assist us. This is why we mentioned the above coordinates. Basically, head towards the water tower and keep it on your right side. When we checked in we told them we’d be here for one night and they ran our credit card. I don’t understand why if was necessary to return to the check in point the next day to get my credit card receipt. If traveling with dogs, they do ask for a current vaccination card. If you want to use the campground laundry you must go to the outdoor recreation office that is a different building and sign out a key for the laundry. The laundry room door was the only mention of a tick problem in the area and not at the initial check in. The 9 sites at the camp face an open field rather than out towards the much more picturesque lake and the actual sites had dirty fire rings, grass that was above my knees in height and no WiFi access. Fortunately, our Verizon MiFi was a strong 4G. We should have been told about the extremely high water pressure and need for a pressure reducer plus the tick problem. This didn’t happen at the check in point. As previously reported in a write up 5 months earlier, the sewer hookup in every site would require the camper to dump “uphill” creating an unsanitary situation. For the above reasons if we were in the Wichita area, we would most certainly choose another campground even if it meant paying a higher fee. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in our 40' motorhome with tow vehicle. The new sites are great. Long, wide, concrete pad with grass. No table at site 6. Looks out at a field with walking/running track. Pond behind. Full hookups with 50 amp. Satellite and Verizon very good. We would stay here again. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This review is to be considered an update to my previous review since improvements have been completed. 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 obtained 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. The only negative for me was the lack of a dog run area and the height of the sewer hookup, I had to get some rain gutter to make a bridge from the RV hookup and the sewer dump. The folks at outdoor recreation stated that this will be fixed as soon as possible. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Military only. This campground is not for long term stays. All sites are back in and not for big rigs. There are no showers or restrooms. McConnell is planning to upgrade the camping facilities in the near future, moving the location and adding facilities. Campground is next to golf course, close to Emerld City activity center, BX, Commissary, and Wichita. Entrance is through truck gate on west side of base. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Tent.
