Gunter-Maxwell AFB FamCamp was a decent campground ‘on post’; you will have to go through post security gates to enter. FamCamp has lots of room for the kids to play with playground. Flat part-gravel, part-paved pull-through and back in sites; spacing a little tight but do-able. Each site had a picnic table and standing charcoal bbq grill. No firepits provided; no open flames permitted. Some sites have metal canopies over picnic tables. Two clean bath house and bathroom facilities. Laundry rooms have 2 washers/dryer and folding table. Free Wifi available in the park, though we used our own AT&T Hot Spot as free WiFi was intermittent due to other users. Local tv but satellite if you have your own. There is a fishing pond on the other end of the FamCamp with lakeside pavilion and bbq grills. Boat rentals available. Great long roads for those who like running or long walks. Quite a few permanents due to military and civilians going to or instructing schools. We gave it 3.5 stars because of gravel sites, no firepits or open fires permitted and the accessibility (getting to/from) was a bit tedious. Security gate guards didn’t hand out maps (that were provided) to get to the FamCamp nor were able to give directions how to get there. Be aware you will be privy to hearing the sounds of freedom; airstrip is close by but that didn’t bother us.
