Outdoor Camping Facilities

The camping area is located just south of the B-52 airplane on Stadium Blvd. (see map) All visiting groups must provide their own equipment, transportation, food, and sometimes water. The camping area water supply is turned off during the fall, winter months. Restrooms are located in the camping area. There are several unmarked clearings in the tree line to set up camp. This campground is for tent camping only. Please follow camping guidance as laid out in the Boy Scout Handbook.

NO GROUND FIRES ARE PERMITTED AT ANY TIME. CHARCOAL GRILLS ARE PERMITTED. GAS/ PROPANE STOVES ARE PERMITTED.

Wildlife

This base is home to a variety of wildlife, to include bear, mountain lion, coyote, deer, raccoon, and skunk. Please keep all food away so as NOT to attract the animals. PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE WILDLIFE. CAMPSITES ARE NOT WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE DINING FACILITIES; therefore, you will have to provide your own transportation to and from this facility. There are NO LAUNDRY facilities available on base.

Ground Fires Are Not Permitted

No Camp Ground Fire  

Ground fires are not permitted at any time.

Security

Campsite security is the responsibility of each individual group. At least one responsible adult leader should occupy the campsite at all times. Security Forces will patrol the campsite area occasionally, but we cannot guarantee the safety of any equipment that is left unguarded. The campsites are near a public display (the B-52 Bomber) and there are often as many as 200 youth and adults from several different groups in the campsite at any given time.

Weather Condition

Adequate clothing is necessary to be prepared for the extremes in weather conditions that may be experienced during your visit. Storms may come up suddenly from the mountains, and lightning is a very real danger. Even in the summer, temperatures can drop as much as 30 degrees in a few hours. Snow can also be a problem, even as late as May and June, and can accumulate to significant amounts in a few hours. There is no indoor housing or shelter near the camping area. In the event of a major storm you will have to seek commercial lodging off base.
