Directions: From I-64, Exit 19, follow SR-158 South approx 1.7 miles.  Turn 
left to main gate. From the main gate, continue down Scott Drive 
to the third traffic light.  Turn LEFT onto East Winters St. which is just
before gas station on your right.  Follow E. Winters around curve to stop
sign.  Go straight ahead and you'll be on South Drive.  Continue for
about a mile to the last warehouse on the right just before runway (Bldg
855).  You'll see a sign for Outdoor Recreation.  Check in between
0800-1600 M-Sa.  From 4/1-9/30 it's also open Sundays from 12-1600.  Once
you enter the building, the office is down the hall on the left.  After

then look for FamCamp sign on right.  Turn RIGHT into the access road and
over small bridge.  You'll first come to sites 13-24 (paved road on the
right).  At the T, proceed right and you'll come to sites 1-12.  Turn

Input from members: Dump station is west of East Road before tunnel.  However, access road was torn up and barricaded.  Outdoor recreation personnel said that we could drive around the barricade on the grass, but the water was padlocked off -- consider it UNUSABLE.  Restrooms/showers, laundry and dumpster for trash all require a key to open.  There's no cost, but key must be picked up at Outdoor Recreation office on check-in and deposited in the laundry room box on departure.  Campround is adjacent to large field and within sight of Scott Lake.  Telephone is outdoors at bathhouse -- local calls are 35 cents.  Commissary, PX, Gas Station, Clubs and Hospital are on base west of Scott Drive.  Check-out time: 1100.  There is an AAFES shopette only two blocks from the campground.
