There are several concrete runways so unfortunately you must plan for your rockets to land on hard surfaces.
When you arrive at Fentress there is an operations building near the gate. There may or may not be a guard on duty, but be sure to sign in to the SEVRA notebook so they can keep tabs on who's using the field.
