Weather Information

On the southwestern side of Fort Benning is a place where trees grow tall and the water of the inviting Chattahoochee River flows deep and cool. This is Uchee Creek Army Campground and Marina — a place where active duty and retired military personnel, DOD civilians, their families and other eligible personnel can spend a weekend or an entire vacation enjoying the natural beauty of the scenic area.

Fort Benning’s Uchee Creek Army Campground and Marina offers the amenities expected from today’s RV traveler. We offer full-service RV sites and we're open year round with a manager onsite at all times. Uchee Creek also has 42 log cabins secluded under the shade of the Alabama pines . The cabins come in four sizes and are furnished with cooking and dining utensils, stove, refrigerator, heat and air conditioning, shower, lavatory facilities, cable TV and phones (the different types of cabins offered are listed on the bottom of this page).

Many come to Uchee Creek for its beautiful marina that offers a boat launching ramp, boat slips, docking facilities, gas, water, and electrical hookups. In addition we also offer rentals of pontoon boats, several types of fishing boats, bass boats and canoes.

We now offer a new RV Rally site and Activity Center. The Activity Center at the RV rally site features a kitchen with stoves, refrigerators, ice machines, large screen TV's and seating accommodations for up to 500 people. An outdoor picnic/barbecue area with two super cooker grills and 20 picnic tables. The recreational vehicle rally site can accommodate up to 250 motor coaches (dry camping) with trail vehicles making it the perfect place for rallies. For those who enjoy land more than water, Uchee Creek has an archery range, basketball and volleyball courts, a softball field, picnic pavilions, playground equipment and shuffleboard courts.

For special occasions, friends and family can gather at our lodge and relax before the warmth of the building’s fireplace. The recently renovated lodge seats up to 150 people and includes a refrigerator, ice maker, range, tables, chairs, and smoker/cooker barbecue grills. The lodge is perfect for unit parties.

I can't say too much bad about this place but do have a couple of problems. We stayed in one of the Executive Chalets. We loved the chalet. However, there was no phone service at all and the internet was hit and miss, mostly miss. We were told that we could use our phones if we had Verizon. Other than that nothing works. Our AT&T didn't work any where in the park. We had to drive up almost to the main post road in order to get a signal. The other thing is the internet. The first couple of days we had service in the morning and nothing at night. Then the last 4 days we had no service at all. They put in all those new routers around the park a few years ago and I know they worked at one time. We had one on a pole across the street from our chalet.  Another complaint is when I called a couple months ago to make reservations the person told me that the policy is a maximum of  7 nights, nothing more. We wanted to stay 10 nights. When we checked in I asked that person and she said there is no rule that says you can only stay 7 nights. If the chalet was available at the time we could have stayed 10 nights. Now we know.  On Easter Sunday at the chalet next to us, a truck and large van backed in and began unloading. I thought at first a bunch of college students were having a spring break party. I watched them unload for a while until I got tired. They unloaded at least 6 large military duffle bags, 2 large backpacks, 2 very large chests that took 2 of them to carry and several cases that at first I thought were musical instrument cases. But they turned out to be rifle cases. This was happening at the next two chalets also. The next day our question of who are the guys were answered. When we came home from our outing for the day, 7 or 8 of them in uniform were in the yard and had ropes tied around most of the trees and were throw hatchets at the trees. They had set up a bivouac area in a recreational residential area. The next day I found out about the rifles. They got out of the vehicles with weapons and ammo cans. Don't get me wrong, they didn't cause any trouble. I just can't understand why something like this could happen. I asked at the office when I checked out and the 3 ladies there were surprised at what I was telling them. I told them if I wanted to live in a military bivouac area I could probably get something a little cheaper than the 140 dollars I was paying here.  With all this said, we had a wonderful 7 nights and plan to do it again but maybe 10 nights.

Outstanding park. Probably the best park we have ever stayed in. Agree with the other positive comments. Staff and Host very friendly and accommodating. Host said it is rarely crowed except on some summer weekend. They have long term sites avail. Earlier post mentioned the C130s. They are dropping students from the Airborne School over at Fryar Drop Zone which is about 10 minutes away. If you hear a 130, head that way (Google Maps will bring it up but don't take the first suggested turn on a dirt road...stay on the paved and follow the signs). Guests are welcome.

Stayed in 40'MH with toad. Pull thru sites best I've seen. Well planed and laid out. $22 per nite with Golden Age pass. (27 w/o). From main post, road was washed out, had to drive around entire air field. Dog park would have been nice to have. Also sign off the main road for the pull thru area would have also been good. Would stay longer next time, with pull thru site. Really nice place.

We stayed at Uchee Creek in a 40ft motorhome with a 15 ft. trailer in the new 400-421 section of the campground. These pull throughs are HUGE. I could have parked 2 motorhomes end to end that they would have fit. The new section is very quiet and the hookups are all new and problem free. We had crystal clear Dish satellite reception from our roof mounted antenna. I can not comment on the older spots, they looked ok when we drove through, but the 400-421 section had the best pull throughs I have ever seen. Keep in mind that the main post (PX and Commissary) are about 40 mins drive. Also, Uchee is in the training area so there were occasional Soldiers road marching on the roads outside the campground, rifle and machine gun fire in the distance and nearly constant C130s flying very low over head. Uchee is in the landing path of the airfield on Benning.

This was a very nice campground with everything you could need. All sites are full hook ups 50amp, and cable hook up with 58 channels! We came from Alabama so we didn't need to drive through the whole base. Also information here is incorrect and outdated so I will update: first the address is all wrong, here's the address your GPS will take you exactly to this RV park: 5 Uchee Creek Rd, Fort Mitchell, AL 36856. Also prices are as follows; Prices are based on rank (retired or active), E-5 and below= $23/$138/$552, Tent=$8/$48, E-6 and above= $24/$144/$576, Tent=$9/$54. They also have 75' pull through sites for $1 additional per night for E-5 and below and $3 additional for E-5 and above. Golden age/access pass is $5 discount. (Editor note: Website updated).

We called as they were closing the office and requested a pull thru for one night. They told us no problem, gave us the gate code and told us to check in at Host #2. We arrived around 2130 and the host checked out ID card and gave us a form to fill which he collected to turn into the office. Easy to locate pull thru even in the dark. Noted this trip a lot of construction materials at the comfort station across from the swimming pool. Since we didn't use the facility and you still have to do a rating we gave we gave it 5. We enjoy this campground in transition sometimes, but also as a great place just to relax and enjoy the area. High marks to Petra who checked us out the next morning. She is very pleasant lady and and a pleasure to work with. We arrived in a 32' motorhome with a tow.

We were able to make last minute reservations for July 4th time as traveling through area. Pull through sites along road are well spaced. We drove the park but did not use any amenities. Looked nice for family visits. We did visit the National Infantry Museum which was one of the best museums we have ever visited. Highly recommend it for everyone!! Will return when we have more time to stay.

Nice recreation area. Had a very nice pull-thru spot in the outer loop. Lots available to do there--boat rental, fishing, swimming pool, etc. If there is wifi, we could never access it. Even cell service was weak where our spot was. Did not use the shower or laundry facilities but checked on the ones located near our spot and it appeared everything was in working order. Played golf on post. The golf course had 3 nine-hole courses. Course was in good condition. Would return (but would wait until the fall or early spring). It was extremely hot during this time of year!

We had originally planned to stay 4 nights, but had to leave early. This is a beautiful campground in the woods, plenty of space between sites and great fishing. Unlike most campgrounds they have there own section for permanent party further back in the woods. You can't fault the staff who do and excellent job but some issues need attention. The laundry facility had 6 washers and 3 dryers working with only 1 of the 3 worth a hoot! Internet was spotty and so we gave up. Would like to of seen the pool remain open past 1800 for us older folks. We camped in a 26 foot travel trailer and entered off of Highway 165. Notified the campground that we would be arriving late and they had our information with site # and gate code taped near the door, and informed us to check in at our convenience the the next day which was nice. The phone numbers above are correct the phone numbers provided on my email confirmation were not.

Very nice facility. Very clean, easy pull through sites, well run EXCEPT markings. Markings being the signage into the campground. After checking in and on your way to your campsite no signs indicate the turn to the entrance. Look for the signs that indicate Parking. This is in the deep woods so satellite reception is a little spotty. Good news is there are a couple of OTA stations.

We came to the camp for a short getaway. If one wants to disappear & not be found, Uchee Creek is the place! We requested sites near the playgrounds for our 3yr grandson's benefit. This is the front of the park. Our site was full of ant hills. I went to the office to see about a spray. I was told that they cannot give us anything & they cannot spray - but if we did that was okay - the park staff cannot do it. We rented a pontoon boat. We were the only ones out on the water. Lots of turtles, a pair of eagles & just before we came back to dock, an alligator! We also went to the bowling alley for lunch & some bowling. Ft Benning has a lot to offer. The gas station is easy for the RV. Great commissary & exchange.
They are no longer giving the Senior discount - half off. They do offer different deals - check their website or call & see what deals are on when you're coming in.

Loved everything about this place. What a wonderful campground to get away to. They are upgrading the water and sewer systems at some of the camp sites but they have signs all around saying "Excuse us while we fix up the campgrounds". The showers leave a lot to be desired. Nasty, but nothing a coat of paint wouldn't fix, also noted no hot water in the showers but since I am FMF then I am use to it. The store has a lot of space but offers very little. Better plan on bringing your own firewood too. Coming in through 165 to the camp was a lot easier than coming through Fort Benning.

We were on the road and called to see if we could make a reservation. We were told that a rally was going on for that weekend and the following week and the RV park would be full during that time. We made other arrangements nearby. During a trip to Fort Benning to use the Exchange and Commissary, we decided to drive through the park. Every site in the front section except one was occupied with a motorhome with a club emblem attached. There were no people around and no towed vehicles. Someone (don't know how true) said the rally was on weekends with the RV occupants going back home during the week and returning the following weekend. I just wonder how many authorized users to this park live within driving distance that they can go home and come back just for the weekend. I also wonder how many of these folks are not military connected and not authorized to use this park. I'll probably never know.

Be prepared for a great deal of construction throughout the park as they are actively working on upgrading the water and sewer system. Only negative we have was we did not have a picnic table and after calling the office none appeared the next day so went to the office and were told someone would meet us at our site with one, that did not happen either. Have been here many times and the abundant wildlife is always fun to watch and give snacks to. This is a very popular military campground so be sure to call as soon as rules allow.

Several of us decided to meet up here prior to heading to South Texas for a while. This was my first time here and I was greatly impressed with the facilities, staff, and overall cleanliness of the the campground. Uchee Creek is out in the woods, but close enough to Fort Benning if you need to go to the commissary or PX. As others have mentioned, there is abundant wildlife all over the park. I opened my window shade one morning and had 3 deer staring back at me! Don't pay any attention to time here, because it will make you crazy! The campground is actually in Alabama (Central time), less than a mile from the river border with Georgia (Eastern time.) It's too close to the border for your phone or other electronic device to automatically change over and if you manually reset the time to Central, you can easily miss things like the commissary closing before you get there. Don't ask me how I know. LOL We got there before all the cold spells starting hitting the south, so the ground was still wet and muddy. Fort Benning is installing new water and sewer lines throughout the campground, so there are many soft muddy spots to watch out for. A toy hauler got stuck in the mud while we were there. If you have an America the Beautiful pass from the National Park Service, be sure to mention it when you check in. It will get you a pretty decent discount on the daily price. I'm going to try and get back here sometime when the weather is warmer. This looks like it would be a great place for a vacation!

R.H. left this review using the Directory software: - Since we live only four hours away, Uchee Creek has become our "get away for only a few days at a time" RV Park. We visit several times a year, and always arrive with at least 100 pounds of corn for the deer. We love the place, and all of the comments you read are true. There have been many improvements made over the past few years, and the grounds are immaculate, especially when you consider the sheer size of the place. In fact, it can be quite entertaining on "mowing day" to just sit back and watch the crew mow the entire park in just one day. With all that said, it saddens me to write this review, because there is one issue which needs to be addressed: the bathhouse facilities. They are nothing short of atrocious. Filthy is the better word. Although they are cleaned every day (if you look at the checklist), there have been times during the last year that they were not touched for more than a week at a time. During my most recent stay, two of the three toilets were stopped-up and literally full of...well, use your imagination. They were like that when I arrived, and still untouched three days later when I left. Granted, some of the problems can be attributed to campers, but the fact remains that someone is getting paid to clean the facilities. I have spoken to management about this issue, and am assured that the facilities are inspected by a supervisor every day. So there's one more person getting paid for something they're not doing. Like I said, we love Uchee Creek, and will keep returning, but something needs to be done about this one little problem area.

Yes, I gave this all 5s. It is out of the way but that is what we wanted. Quiet, set on the water amongst the trees. Uchee Creek is part of Ft Benning, but it is actually in Alabama (south of Phenix City), not Georgia with the base. If you want to go to the commissary or exchange the back gate is a few miles away but easy access. There is a marina and equipment available to rent. Nice areas to walk. The deer are plentiful & seem to know they won't be hunted in the park area. However! Outside the park they better watch out! We travel with our best friends so when we can we like to get sites next to each other. Uchee Creek was very accommodating for us. The staff is quite helpful from phone calls to us stopping in the office. The office does have some supplies available for purchase so you don't have to go all the way in to the commissary. We enjoyed the fire ring every night when we didn't have rain. ATT cellphone signal was minimal if at all. They also have nice looking cabins scattered throughout the park. And some chalets that are in a separate section over on the water. This is our second visit to Uchee Creek & we will be back.

This is one of the nicest military parks we have stayed in. The staff here are very helpful and pleasant. The park is beautiful... and well maintained, even the deer and squirrels are well mannered (chuckle, but true. I've seen where the deer are no longer afraid of people on literally are in your face if you are cooking outside.) The sites and roads are paved making it so nice for setting up. This is a plus as we are runners. The water pressure is not so great, but I can see they are working on it. The rest of the facilities make up for that issue. For the number of people coming in and out of this park, the staff does an excellent job of keeping this park so nice. I was here last year and some weekends the cabins and RV sites were full but there was never a lack of pleasant service, from any of the staff. I hope they keep it up because it also has the potential to be a historical site, if the dates on the manhole covers are correct.

Has been over two years since we have been here and what a nice surprise that the new section of 22 sites is now completed and our Zephyr fits here beautifully with plenty of room for the car and a clear shot for roof mounted Dish. The office/registration building has been redesigned on the inside and more staff available to help you individually as it can be busy at times with so many outdoor activities on this post handled by them and they were very friendly as well as knowledgeable. Sites are blacktop, very level and very large and not just for long term as we are here for 6 nights. The folks someone mentioned that were here with all kinds of stuff must have left or been asked to leave and there are very few RV's in the new area and absolutely no one has any stuff outside that looks like they live here. New brochure states homesteading is prohibited and the other areas of the campground look much better than in the past so at this time I have to say the homesteading prohibited rule is being enforced. The Golden Age Card discount price of $12.00 a day or $360.00 a month should get this place full as word spreads and folks know the new sites are beautiful and very large. We use our MiFi from Verizon and have no problems getting and staying on the internet. The exchange and commissary are large, clean, organized and employees are friendly and helpful.
