Westover ARB, MA

cef01

Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) opened a new FAMCAMP at Westover ARB in 2003. Westover is located in Chicopee MA, just north of Springfield. It's conveniently just off I-90 at Exit 5 and not too far from I-91. There are 20 RV sites with cement pads, electric and water hookups, as well as a few tent sites. There is also a dump station and a new bathhouse with showers, a laundry room, and a small camp store, collocated with the Outdoor Recreation office. Unusual for New England, the FAMCAMP is open all year round, although water at the sites is turned off during the cold weather season. There is a Base Exchange nearby. The FAMCAMP does not take reservations.Note that use is restricted to millitary personnel.

This is a view of a typical shaded site (numbers 1-15). Nicely shaded without being too dark.

More sites.

Sites 16-20 are more open; I'd recommend these for folks interested in good satellite TV/Internet reception.

It pretty much looks the same throughout the campground.

Bldg 5346 houses the bathhouse facilities, a laundry, and the Outdoor Recreation Office. This is where you check in.
