Spent a few days enjoying this wonderful RV Park. Free WiFi and laundry is a BIG plus. We did some site-seeing in the local area. Also enjoyed the ice cream social and card bingo in the RV park community room. Charly, the campground manager is very friendly and helpful, as were the camp hosts and ther office staff. It's easy to see why this RV Park was voted the #1 military campground on the East coast. We'll be sure to return, next time we're in the area.

Our first time visiting here, but it won't be the last. Although the office was closed, the hosts, Dock and Lori, were very helpful and friendly. Although a small campground, there were various activities planned. We wished we had time to stay longer, as they had a Savannah Food Tour coming up we would loved to have gone on. Since we are Internet junkies, our only complaint is the lack of any Internet services. With the many trees, our satellite Internet wouldn't work. We did get satellite TV, although we didn't expect to. Fair priced campground in a quiet setting.

We enjoyed our stay here. We were only going to stop for 1 night, but decided to stay a second night. Although small, we were able to get a site the same day. Lori, the office staff is very helpful and friendly. With a 6-month stay limit, there were some long-term campers. The biggest plus is the pricing. This is the proper rate to charge for a military benefit. ALL military campgrounds should follow their lead on pricing.

Stopped by to check the place out. We'd never been here before. This is a nice RV Park, also with a few tent sites. It appeared there were still a few sites available. Part of the campground is in trees and a bit rustic, while the other half appears fairly new in the open and with concrete pads. The air station is fully equipped, making this a great place to spend some time at.

Stopped by to check the place out. Nice, quiet campground. If you're looking for a place that doesn't have a long waiting list and isn't near a lot of stores and tourists, this is a the place. Price is good for this location.

Being the "snowbird" season, we weren't sure if we would get a site. We arrived around 1700hrs and the VERY friendly camp host (Ray) got us into an "overflow" site, which is with water and electric. Since overflow electric posts are shared, we got the 30amp while our neighbor had the 50amp. We were just glad to have any electric! There were always at least 2 available overflow sites available during our stay. They have a wonderful community room here and it's always in use for a variety of activities. Although many of the campers return each year and are friends, they made us feel very welcomed. Tyndall AFB has all of the facilities you would expect on a large USAF base. I can see why many people choose to make this their winter home. It seems the winter 2-month stay limit in a FHU site was being enforced, which makes it fair for everyone wanting to visit. I forgot to ask how long the stay was in overflow before being able to rotate back to a regular site. Sammi and David in the office were also very friendly and helpful.

We spent one night in dry camping, then got a partial hook-up (W/E) site. A week later, we got a FHU site and stayed there for a few weeks (30 days max). The campground is nice with lots to do in the area. You just need to get used to the small arms firing range in the middle of the campground. We liked our FHU site located on the Banana River. We think their rotation method from dry to partial to FHU, then back to dry is very fair. Active Duty get priority and can make reservations for FHU. Otherwise, its first-come with a 30 day limit in any type of site. During our stay, we saw people rotating everyday. Nobody stayed in a FHU site longer than 30 days, except for the 2 camp hosts (who were great and keep everything running smooth). We'll be back!

We stopped by for only a one night stay. Although it is the "slow" season, we didn't see many sites open for camping. Actually, it seemed that 90% of the sites are occupied by long-term residents. Although, hardly anyone was around. It appears they keep their RV there and only visit occasionally. While I understand the financial benefit to the campground for long-term residents, many other military campgrounds have found a good compromise. I'm not sure that compromise is here. MANY of the long-term residents have built docks on the lake at their site, but has marked them as "Private Use Only". What? A military campground allowing PRIVATE modifications and restricting use to them!?!? One long-term resident has even built a building connected to their trailer. "Homesteading" has gone overboard here! It no longer seems like a military RECREATION facility, rather a military HOUSING area. But it's not all bad - this is a good, quiet location on the lake. It appears there's plenty of activities for the family during the prime season. Doug, the office staff was friendly and helpful.

Only spent one night, but took a good look around. This is a modern and clean recreation area. All of the staff and Steve, the host, were very friendly. They had a breakfast in the morning and some type of activity going on when we arrived. This rec area has LOTS to do and would be a great place for a family vacation. We didn't have a reservation, but there were a few sites empty.

Nice, quiet, private area near the lake. Plenty of picnic sites and outdoor recreation opportunities. This campground is old and run down. The office is being renovated, but there's a trailer nearby as a temporary office. As mentioned before, sites are very close together. Sites in area B have more space between them, but there's no sewer in this area. The campground is okay if you want to be here and near the lake. Otherwise, we prefer the nearby Midway RV Park. Prices are a bit high here (and at Midway), especially here with everything old and falling apart.

Enjoyed our week stay here. Plenty of open spaces this time of the year. Weather was mostly good - sunny but cool. Check-in was easy and friendly. Our complaint is with ITT. They were closed for the Thanksgiving weekend, which didn't do us any good. Our first time in the Memphis area. Campground is nice with spacious sites, being a converted mobile home park. Prices recently went up and should have remained lower. Base has almost everything you would need. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

Stayed for a few days for Thanksgiving week. We also stayed in the "back 40", with no sewer. But that was alright with us. We did use the dump station when leaving. There were available sites all week. However, the FHU sites were full when we arrived, but a couple opened up after one night. We still stayed in the back lot. It does seem like a few long-term residents are taking the FHU sites. Camp host was gone on vacation, but other campers were helpful. We registered at MWR, which were friendly and helpful. They had a base map for us there. Campground is a little run down and old, but not terrible. We enjoyed our visit here and would return. Price is PERFECT for the facility and a military benefit.

Stopped by to check up on this rarely used campground. Being a "closed post", due to being an arsenal, security was the most difficult part. Follow the above instructions, be patient, and all will be over with quickly. Gym staff was very helpful. Finding the campground was a bit confusing, but I think we've made clear directions. There's not much to say about the campground. Old, neglected and rustic. Sites back up to trees and the river. Satellite reception wouldn't be a problem. The electric boxes, picnic tables and BBQ's are falling apart. Plenty of room for large rigs to maneuver. This is a quiet location, as you're away from all other base activity. For a private and quiet campsite, without any frills, this is a good place to stay with great rates.

Stopped by for a look and update of the information. Not as bad as I expected, based on the previous reviews. However, this isn't a high class RV Park. Sites are on a hill and are not laid out well. It would be difficult to get into some of the sites. Campground is old and neglected. It does appear most of the campers there are long term. However, there were a few available sites and some were in a good location and easy to pull into. Sites and road isn't made for larger rigs. As long as you don't expect too much, these sites are a fair deal. Located across the street from a small lake.

We stopped for only one night, but wish we had time for a longer stay. This time of the year, it was real quiet, although the RV sites were about 75% occupied. Located in a quiet corner of the depot, this is pure recreation. LOTS of recreational activities to do here. I bet it's a jumping place during the summer! Lots of trees, so satellite coverage may be difficult to get. Staff was helpful and friendly. The cabins looked pretty neat and would be fun to rent for a week or weekend. I liked how the cabins were spread out on the lake with good views. Some renters even had their bot pulled right up to the shore near them. Prices are PERFECT for a military benefit. This is how ALL military campgrounds should be priced!
