After winding around on roads that run neither east or west nor north or south, we found a very nice camp host who went out of her way to get us a great spot next to the playground and a community pavilion right out our door, which we took over. The kids had a great time at the famcamp on post.
Not only was our site wonderful but there was so much to do at Fort Huachuca - even if you are not present or prior military you can get on base and visit the Buffalo Museum and hike the canyons.
The kids spent their mornings and evenings monkeying around on the equipment as I enjoyed drinking a nice cup of coffee or wine.
One day Mom and I took the three older kids to the Buffalo Museum, which was interesting for all of us. Mom had been several times, and still found interesting things she had missed. The girls liked all the lifelike replicas like the talking general who greeted us when we entered the building. I enjoyed reading the history about the buffalo soldiers and piecing history together from what we had learned at the missions, and big bend national park.
Civilians can get on post by stopping at the visitors center at the main entrance and declaring where they are going, and this extra step is well worth it to enjoy the museum and canyons that are located on base.
We also met a really neat couple - Andy and Preston. They are also have a blog, which you can check out. Can't wait to meet up with them again, so we can spend more time together.
Fort Huachuca is also in a great location to explore out from it. The post sits at the base of the mountains and there are enough day trips within an hour from it to keep a person busy for weeks.
As the kids say, "This is a redo".
