  • Gila Bend AF Auxiliary Fld, AZ


    Gila Bend AFAF is located just south of Gila Bend, AZ, about 2 1/2 miles south of I-8. The base is entirely manned by contractors, thus there no military amenities here. There are 45 full-hookup sites and unlimited overflow. Note that use is restricted to military personnel only.

    Plenty of sites available when we rolled in on Easter Sunday. The host, Dave, met us and quickly got us settled on site 12.

    Date of visit: Mar 2008

    Nothing too fancy here - essentially three rows of sites.

    At least there's a little space between rigs.

    This shows some of the overflow parking area.

    The sites along the east side of the CG actually have a little grass.

    There's no bathhouse available, but there is a free laundry facility with three washers and three dryers. Seems like it wouldn't take too much much to add a small bathhouse in the rest of the building.

    At the far end of the CG, near the overflow parking, is a large community fire circle, complete with park benches.

    Something we haven't seen at a campsite before - an individual reverse-osmosis system for drinking water.

    Someone has a sense of humor - a faux gravesite with the cross reading "Ol Man Winter".

    We had a little extra interest while here - some cadets from the Ait Force Academy had arrived the day before to practice jumping from perfectly good airplanes. There are three Twin Otters used to ferry the jumpers up to altitude.

    Here are two just about to land.
