We stayed at this campground and were able to find it rather easily. Loved the quiet nights. Our dog had a ball running around in the grass. We did not use any of the amenities because we were in a class A. Good Dish reception. Excellent dog run, just up the road and looked like everyone picked up. If you like to fish, there is a big lake on post, also a kids and large picnic area. the only problem we had was this is a 20MPH and we got stopped by the MPs for doing 25, ended up with a warning. Turkeys are all over the place, the wife even gave them names, the 3 stooges, etc. Be glad qwhen they finish the expansion.

We arrived today and although we had DoD stickers on both the RV and the car we were subjected to a full blown out search, they even opened the cabinets and went into the bathroom. This is after we had to guess what exits to take because no one knew what the exit numbers were that we needed to exit at to get here. When you enter the park the first thing you see is a bunch of back ins that are like sardines, maybe 10' between each. So if you come here take a pull through. Staff was rude and even put the wrong out date on the reservation. No park map, Sharp turns and homesteaders galore. Guess they never saw AR 25-1 "Homesteading is Forbidden" or they just do not give a _________. Oh yes, after you get the 3rd degree by the civilian police then you have to go through a military gate where, as usual the Army guard asks you for your ID, like every other military installation in the world. There is also NO place to park to register at the office so you will end up blocking the street. We stayed in a Class A.

This would be much higher if: 1. They did not all service members, not academy students to stay there for 6 months at a time. 2. They would turn on the water for the dog area. 3. The sites were level from front to back, Had to almost use my raisers under the front tires to get level. Had to add a step to get into the unit. 4. They need to enforce the pick up after your pet. 5. People park in the exit roadway making very hard to leave in the morning. Some of the academy students have 4 vehicles parked in their slot. Truck, car, and 2 trailers. We parked in our motor home.

If you want to stay here you have to first go to the Lodging office where if you are lucky the girls, ditzey, know what you are talking about. Then they will give you "directions" to the park. There are no real signs telling you where to turn. We took the second and had to drive around, apparently we entered at the exit, which is not marked. All of the spaces have trailer rentals in them, except for one which was our space. The add says they close 30 Sep, but we were here on the 14 through the 22 of October. GPS and On Star will not get you to the park because it does not have a address. The park is also expanding so hopefully it will improve.

This park is one of the best on the East Coast. Is the best and the closest Army park to DC. Andrews AFB is closer, but does not come close to this park. The staff is not only friendly, but helpful. My wife and I are full-timers and we have a 40' Class A. If there is a negative to this park it is the number of active duty that are living here, but even they are required to move every month or so, no homesteading. I would probably recommend this park for an award, at least for Army RV Park.

If you have a son or daughter stationed there and if they just returned from a deployment don't count on being able to get a slot during the winter, it seems that the snow birds who move there during the winter have priority. I shouldn't be so mad, as this is true for every FamCamp in the military. Overall the camp was OK, they even came by to make sure we were leaving when we said, or to remind us to LEAVE.

NICE PARK, THE POSITIVES: GREAT LOCATION. THE NEGATIVES WERE: DIRTY REST ROOMS, NO COVER ON THE DUMPSTER, QUIET TIMES NOT ENFORCED. IT WOULD BE NICE IF ALL OF THE SITES WERE PAD SITES THAT WERE LEVEL AND HAD A LITTLE MORE SPACE BETWEEN EACH OTHER, THE SITES ARE SO CLOSE THAT OUR NEIGHBOR WAS USING OUR SPACE TO STORE HIS DIVING STUFF. WE ASKED ABOUT THE WINTER AND WERE TOLD THAT EVERYTHING IS ON A FIRST COME BASIS. AND THAT THE SNOW BIRDS USUALLY HAVE THE ENTIRE CAMP FILLED UP SO THERE ARE NO SPACES FOR FAMILIES WHO WANT TO USE THE CAMP FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.
The park is one of those best kept secrets during the summer. However, the roads in the camp ground are gravel which is not good for us walkers. Since the laundry is free, yes FREE, people tend to put their cloths in and forget them. This happened to us with a lady who tied up 4 of the 5, active duty. BEWARE of the 14 foot alligator in the lake, she just had babies and is crankey. Also there are several in the water on the golf course. so do not look for lost balls. No problems with getting on base or finding the park, it is well marked.
We stayed here for a week and except for the occasional holes in the ground that we ended up marking with lawn lights it isn't bad. The staff was very attentive to problems and the neighbors were friendly, not like a lot of military RV parks. We also noticed that there were not a lot of active duty, again like most are going (changing from trailer parks to RVs for active duty). The only problems were that the ocean is not accessible from the park unless you want to walk a long way, the beach is off limits by the park, and in order to get to the beach you have to drive because it is chain link fenced off. This park will be missed when it is BRAC'd in 2010 along with the post.
