    Gateway FAMCAMP


    Gateway FAMCAMP is the primary campground operated by Outdoor Recreation at Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls, MT. Located just outside the main gate to the base, Gateway has 25 modern sites with full hookups, a laundromat, and bathhouse. There is an overflow campground on-base for another 24 RVs. Note that use is restricted to military personnel only.


    Gateway does not accept reservations; when we arrived at mid-afternoon, there were three empty sites for us to choose from. We ended up on site 6.

    How quickly things can change! The second morning of our stay we awoke to find about 4" of very wet snow. Gee - I'm so glad I washed the RV yesterday.

    The campground is quite open, but some small trees have been planted which will provide some shade when they're a little bigger. The vacant site is 5.

    Looking down the road between the two main rows of sites.

    All sites are pull-throughs. They all seem to have a slope to them so some leveling is needed.

    Looking back up the center road from the entrance end of the campground.

    36 hours after the above pictures were taken, we had a little snow...in June!

    This neat little building houses the laundromat and bathrooms.

    This C-17 made a couple of low passes, dropping some troops each time.

    The base is not far from the Missouri River, and at the campground entrance is this memorial to the Lewis and Clark Voyage of Discovery. It is said that their path took them right through this immediate area.
