Reservations for 3 Picnic Pavilions can be made for the summer months, May 1 - September 30, 9 a.m.- 9 p.m. by calling 333-4753.  Rates are $50 for half day (9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. or 3:30 - 9 p.m.) and $75 for full day (9 a.m. - 9 p.m.). Squadrons are only allowed one half price picnic per year. Volleyballs, horseshoes, kick balls, etc. are available for rent at the Outdoor Recreation Center. Certain items are free for Squadron Functions. Sponsors of the picnics (Govt. ID's required) are responsible for getting their guests on base and are also responsible for their behavior.


Camping Trailers are for rent May 1 - Sept. 30

If you are planning to rent a travel trailer from the Outdoor Recreation Center be sure to take note that in order to do so you must complete a Travel Trailer Training course, provided by ORC. The classes are free, every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m. at the ORC, but you must register with the cashier in advance. "The class is about customer service by ensuring a perfect experience. It reduces damage, extending the life of the unit and keeping the fleet 'rentable' for the next customer," said Chuck Alfultis, ORC Director. Along with the class, a customer hoping to rent a towable item from ORC must have an electrical hook-up check of the towing vehicle at least one week prior to the unit checkout. This is to make sure the customer has a fully functional electrical system and so, if they do not, their trip does not get delayed by finding out at the last minute. Other requirements include: either a 2-inch or a 2 5/16 inch ball; a hitch height of either 17 to 20 inches from the top of the ball to the ground.

-Active Duty personnel can make reservations 90 days in advance.

-All others can reserve them 60 days in advance.

-Prices range from $50-$90 per night.

-Available units include Aliner camper, 19', 21' and 23' Trail Cruiser model travel trailers.
