The FamCamp is located on the south end of the base along perimeter road, just to the north of the Archery Range. The camp has 15 recreational vehicle sites - seven with electric, sewer, and water hook-ups. Three sites have water and electric only. There is also an over flow dry camp area that can accommodate up to five RVs. A dump station is available for those that do not have a sewer receptacle at your site. Picnic tables and grills are located near all sites with the exception of the dry sites.

Many activities are available for your enjoyment while visiting the Dover AFB FamCamp. Eagles Nest Park, located within walking distance, is equipped with four small pavilions, horseshoe pits, and a playground that can accommodate children 2 - 12 years of age and a restroom facility. These facilities may be used by FamCamp customers at no additional cost. Equipment Checkout is just minutes away in building 124 and has picnic, camping and many other items for rent.
In addition to base facilities, you are just 45 minutes away from Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches, which are rated among the top ten beaches in the United States.
Located within the Dover area are attractions such as the John Dickinson Plantation and other historic sites. Dover Downs, which hosts the NASCAR each year in June and September followed by harness racing in November - March, has dining and slot machines available every day.
Just down the street is the Air Mobility Command Museum. Here you will find a collection of vintage aircraft and memorabilia that reflect the history of Dover AFB and USAF airlift missions. Access to the museum is via the entry gate on route 9 (off base) and admission is free.
