Fort McKavett Volunteer Fire Department and Community Center


Community Center
Our Community Center is a great place for the residents of Fort McKavett to get together. Our training/meeting room can comfortably seat 70 people and still have room for a food serving line. For larger groups, our bay area is available which can accommodate between 250-300 people. The training room has a kitchen with an electric cooktop, a double oven, and a microwave. There are two restrooms in the building.

For overnight guests we have 6 RV sites with water and 30 amp electric service. We have another 6 RV sites with 30 amp electric and a shared water hose connection nearby. There is a common dump station for waste water. There are two large wood burning BBQ pits available to cook briskets, chicken goat, etc. The Fort McKavett Cemetery Association awarded us a cost sharing grant to cover the BBQ pit area. The BBQ area has lights and electricity available with water near by.

We do charge a fee for the use of the building and for RV spots.  Download the rental price sheet with rental request and send your request to our rental coordinator at rentals@fortmckavettvfd.org.  The building may be rented with or without the truck bay depending on your needs.  RV spots must be paid in advance.

We have two special programs available for renting the building and RV spots.
 First: our members voted to waive the building use fees for funerals and memorials. Second: the membership voted to give those volunteers at Fort McKavett that are doing educational programs, a special price of $10 per night for RV site rentals. Educational volunteers at the fort travel at their own expense and donate their time teaching the children in our area about history. By reducing their travel expenses, our department is hopeful that the volunteers will continue their educational work at the fort. This is also a way that we can say thanks for teaching our children.
