Wright Patterson AFB - Movie - Spring Valley CG

(Cambridge, OH) Hi 77  Lo 64 -- We've been to the Wright Patterson AFB famcamp once before in 2010, but that was a while ago so I took some more pictures for our campground review we like to do just before we leave. The base is huge. It has two major sections (Section A and Section B) and several gates. We needed to use our GPS to find our way around.  (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

The main gate.

Our site is a pull thru at the end of the row.

All the sites are paved, with full hookups.

Bath house and laundry.

The clubhouse has big screen TV, refrigerator and pool table. We played a couple games of pool, but the air conditioning was out and it got too hot to stay long.  

The famcamp is part of the Bass Lake Recreation Area. Bass Lake is right next to the park and has a boat ramp and dock.  

We enjoyed our week here. All active duty military, retired military, and retired DoD employees are eligible to use the facility.

On Monday we went to see the movie Trainwreck. It's a hilarious comedy and we give it two thumbs up. However, it's R-rated and definitely not suitable for kids. If you don't like a lot of sexual content and blunt language I'd advise you to skip it. 

Today we left WPAFB and had a great 145-mile trip to Cambridge, OH. It was all on I-70, with very little traffic and (surprisingly) very few construction zones. Great weather and no problems. We arrived at Spring Lake Campground around 1:30. The park is near the highway, but it's a big park and we're far enough toward the back that we don't hear any traffic noise. It's a very nice park, more of a resort, with a pool, and a swimming/canoeing lake with a pier and slide for the kids. There's also a big playground and picnic area. There's several permanent RV's here, but it looks nice. We're here for only two nights so we'll give our review now.

The pool area is out our back window. 

Our site, a nice long pull thru.

It's a large park. This is the view from the lake looking back toward the park.

The lake has a slide and pier.

Picnic area and playground.

Tomorrow we'll take a drive around Cambridge. On Friday we're moving to the Pittsburgh, PA area. Jim will be going to a Pirates baseball game and we'll be meeting up with some of our friends who spend the winter with us at Adelaide Shores, our winter home in Florida.

See you in a couple days.
