We arrived in early afternoon on a Monday and had several spaces to choose from. By Wednesday there were RVs in the overflow area. The camp host is very nice and informative. Did not go into the restrooms or laundry. Camp host said the laundromat machines are not working well. Wifi is so bad they might as well not have it. Verizon cell and hotspot worked fine. Antenna-TV was good. Place is very quiet with not much airplane traffic. See tips for how to find Rambo Gate to get in. We missed the gate and had to go in the main gate where the guards were very nice and accommodating, just warning us to come in Rambo next time. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

To find Rambo Gate to get an RV onto base: coming from I-90 watch for large Rambo Road sign on right and turn left. There's a short left-turn lane. The base fence runs along the right side of Rambo Rd and there's a "DEAD END" sign. It does not look like something you'd want to take an RV down. This is the correct road which will take you through the right gate for inspection. Use this gate only with an RV, otherwise use the main gate.

We arrived after hours and were told to go through the Rambo Gate. Took security about 10 - 15 mins. for them to open the gate. Pulled in and they open all the bays and then they went through our rig before we could go any further. You will need to turn in any weapons while you're on base. The camp host was friendly and met us as we drove in. He advised us we would need to go into overflow until a space opened up. The overflow area was full of weeds and holes, which made walking a bit of a challenge. There were numerous vehicles also parked in the overflow area. The camp host came by the following morning and advised there was a space opening up and we could move as soon as they left. The laundry room was clean. Watering was being done via hoses moved around by the camp host. We were a few sites away from the laundry room in the trees and our satellite worked fine. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground, with very helpful and friendly host. The row with spaces 25-30, the spaces are somewhat close, but okay. Other rows a bit more space.

Laundry was great. 75 cents to wash and 50 cents per 30 min to dry. A little crowded, but tolerable.

Wifi tended to be spotty. Worked good at times, slow at others, or just get kicked off. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Base shopping very convenient. WalMart supercenter 5 miles from main gate.

Go through the "Rambo gate". They do a modified inspection.

Terrific Host. Greeted us as we arrived, sat down at a picnic table, checked us in and showed us what sites we could see in Spokane. He was very familiar with this part of Washington which was helped as we needed it. Sites were just long enough for our 40' and trailer. We parked our van on the nearby scruff. Quiet place. Bathrooms were very clean. Wi-Fi was decent. Lots of weeds on one field between the two camp areas. We stayed in the non-shady area. The other part was trees. We'd stay here again. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The host waters every night so you need to take in your furniture before going to bed. Also, Campers need to come in the proper exit for inspection.

This is a very quiet military base, The spots were somewhat close together, but it was never full both times we went there. The host is very friendly & helpful. One section has trees & the other is open. We stayed in the open section & had no trouble getting satellite, phone or internet, which was provided. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This is one of the better military campgrounds; nothing fancy, just long level pull-thrus, good hookups, good free Wi-Fi, all in a quiet setting. This time of year there's no host and only half of the Famcamp is open, and although it's the side with the trees, satellite reception is still good since they're mostly bare. Good Verizon cell and data. Base aircraft fly infrequently, and even at night they're relatively quiet. Not much close to the base, but a five-mile drive takes you to a Wal-Mart and a large casino. Nice commissary, walking trails, and BX complex. Worth the moderate trip off the interstate. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

A nice, quiet military FamCamp. Level, gravel, pull-through sites, excellent WiFi, clean facilities, low cost laundry and a friendly, competent camp host. Good base exchange and commissary. Plenty of dining choices nearby, or more 10 miles in the city of Spokane. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This is a Military Campground open to only Active, National Guard, Reservists, Retired, 100% DAV, and DoD Civilians. First impressions are the lasting ones'!! The camp hosts were very helpful and informative. It is apparent the hosts take pride in the service they provide. Green grass attests to their efforts! Long term campers apparently are grouped together on one side of the camp [which is to be expected]. The restrooms and showers were clean, and well maintained. Only two washers and dryers, could use more for a camp this size, but they were modern and clean. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Fairchild AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
