This is absolutely on of the best Fam-Camps I've stayed in and if you want/need to be in the Millington area. campground backs up to the commissary and you pass the NEX if you enter from the singleton road gate., That's where my 4 on the amenities rating comes from they "Don't have Diesel" But it available in Millington proper at multiple locations. Oh and go to the PIG&WHISTLE for your local barbecue fix, maybe not the best BBQ in the world but real good everything I had there, it was clean and staff were friendly. Just so everyone is aware they have been constantly upgrading the campground for a couple of years, new washers/dryers (frontload and free)upgraded wi/fi 4 separate routers no dropping issues anymore. Campground host (Rich) is active duty but will always come to your trailer and welcome you ,if he's not deployed or working. Taryn is the campground liaison and is usually power washing the pads, cleaning the bathhouse welcoming new guests and is extremely sweet... pretty too for you young guys. HOWEVER they are planning to start in October/November 2016 to start replacing the concrete Pads. Some of the existing ones are in great shape some are broken to pieces cracked and falling apart. So BEWARE during this period there "could be" a slot shortage. There are 34 slots and 24 are slated for replacement so normally you don't have to call but after October I'd call...just to be sure Talk to Taryn/Rich or Andy they'll have the updates.

Some comments to add to the recent ones: Camp Hosts were away when we arrived so we chose a site and phoned MWR; were able to check in over the phone (+ +). At the time we were here, there were always 4 to 8 open sites (for last minute reservations). There is a very nice fruit & veggie stand about a mile south of the Singleton Gate, left side; easy to miss; convenient turn-around to get to it. Singleton Gate IS closed on weekends! Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park, west of Millington at the Mississippi River, is a family recreation area. Boating, biking and hiking are available. Less than 30 minutes from the base, it's a nice way to spend a half or full day. We enjoy Midway RV Park and will continue to spend a few days here as we head west (or east).

This is one of the better military campgrounds I have visited.  Sites are large and level on concrete pads.  WiFi and cable are excellent.  It is a little out of the way but if you are just passing through,  it is perfect.  No diesel on the base.  Commissary and BX are nearby.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the stay.  The ride up 51 is a little long with the traffic lights and traffic, but getting on base through the Singleton Ave gate is easy.  Once you're through the gate, it's only a couple of quick right turns to the park.  There is a mailbox at the entry of the park with site and check in information.  We were not greeted by the camp host, so we just went to the back and picked an empty site. The layout makes it very easy to back in, but be careful of your rear stabilizers as there is a decent hill entering each site.  Sites are concrete and more than big enough for any size rig.  Not a whole lot of shade throughout the park.  Utilities were fine and no issue with placement of hookups.  WiFi worked well, no cable, but plenty of over the air channels.  Many long term residents had satellite dishes out, so looks like a clear line of sight for that.  The laundry has two new washers and two new dryers that are free.  The laundry/bathhouse is clean and we'll kept. My only complaint is the requirement of checking in with the camp host then having to go to the rec office across base to pay for the site.  Seems redundant to me. All in all it is a very nice park, even though we don't plan on returning to Memphis, we would stay there again if passing through.

I have been coming here off and on for 8 years.  This place just keeps getting better and better.  They are going to put in a new bath house and pour new concrete on the sites.  They just put in new front loader washer/dryers and they are free.  The manager, Andy and his maintenace crew have really kept this park in great shape.  The MWR check in people are great and the camp hosts are awesome.  Security here is great and its right next to Commissary and dog park. Millington is a nice little town with great restaurants. You can spend the day seeing the sights in Memphis and spend quiet evenings in the park.  I met some friends here that were only going to stay for a week and they wound up staying a month. I travel extensively and I have seen this park become one of the best managed rv parks in the country.

We stayed here during a trip to Memphis and were very happy with the campground. It seems to be an old trailer park so the pads a very large and have full hookups. The area is very clean and well maintained and our site had nice shade trees. It was nice being located on the base because you had full access to all of the facilities to include the ITT office if you wanted to buy tickets to the local attractions. It is not real close to the downtown area but it is close enough that the drive was not bad. We went to the zoo, Graceland, and the downtown area while we were there and the longest drive was about 30 minutes. As with all military campgrounds the price was great and the personnel were friendly and very helpful. We highly recommend a trip to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken in the downtown area, you won't be disappointed. We also ate at The Central BBQ (Downtown) and I highly recommend this place for traditional Memphis BBQ. Memphis also has a wonderful zoo.

Fantastic park. Easy access through South Gate (when it is actually open, so call ahead to verify which gate to use) and right behind the Commissary. Very easy to maneuver even the largest rigs and trailers in here, once you get past the front gates. Plenty of wide, level, paved spaces with picnic tables. Laundry facilities and bathroom (toilet in a stall, dual sinks and vanities in womens, urinal and single sink in mens) showers were great (so clean my wife said she'd go barefoot in them), water pressure throughout facility was good. Two free, high-efficiency front-loader washers that featured a 'short-wash' cycle (perfect for RV worn clothes) and two free dryers. The entire building doubles as a lounge with a huge table for folding your laundry, iron and ironing board (just like berthing back on the ship!!!), comfy chairs, cable TV, relatively current magazines and a desk/chair in case you bring your laptop. Best part of the facility was the cleaning crew that showed up every morning and left the place spotless! The only downside was waiting for people to come and fetch their laundry, leaving several guests waiting their turn. Camp host checked in with us the morning after we finally made it in, although we had already gotten our space info and checked in with the office when we arrived around 2000. Apparently they've had some issues with people showing up late and packing out early while forgoing payment on their space.  Dumpster was near our space, but there was no recycling program noted and I'm uncertain if the waste management company has a sorting facility for recycling. Wifi was good around the park (our antenna was next to the laundry), and from our spot we had clear HD signal from both Dish and OTA antenna, which yielded a dozen regular TV channels and another dozen shopping/religious/ESL channels, all with crystal clear signal. South end of the park has a row of tall trees that could provide shade in summer months, but may also interfere with your dish. Other spaces had trees around them, but they were not so dense that they'd block the signal. Sprint and AT&T had good service, but we didn't need to use our Hotspot devices. We can certainly understand why this is such a popular FamCamp, and will eagerly stay here again!

Just to let you know RV's no longer have to enter the truck gate, they have a high gate to the right of the car entrance. I was told this by the guard at the truck entrance. Also when you get there just pick a site and call in to the MWR as to what site you have.

Very nice facility but watch when approaching the commissary or one could miss the appropriate turn and went past Polaris; however, driving a Class A rig towing a car managed to get to the campground with minimal aggravation. Great wifi and nice facility with shade.

This is our first RV Campground stay, after our recent motorhome purchase, so we really have nothing to compare to. Our stay was mostly to practice and get familiar with our motorhome testing out all the bells and whistles. - LOCATION is conveniently located behind the commissary, which is awesome if you are staying enroute and need to replenish supplies and save money without boon docking at Walmart. - CLEANLISNESS/HOSPITALITY was GREAT, we were greeted by the Camp Host with a welcome aboard package as soon as we pulled up. The site was extremely clean. - AMENTIES/FACILITIES were not all used. No complaints with power, water, sewage, or wifi. We did not see or use the bath house, because we were self contained. - VALUE was good. Overall, the site was well maintained and would definitely stay again.

Millington RV Park is a converted mobile home park that has all the amenities of a full service base. Located behind the commissary, the other base facilities are a short distance, ie NEX, class 6 etc. The bathhouse is a small trailer converted to a bath house and laundry. It is small but is efficient and does the job. There were several residents that were clearly permanent, but many spaces were available. The host met us at the entrance and explained the basics. Official check in/payment was done by phone when the MWR office opened—very convenient. Sites were spacious, all were back in sites but easy to get into, and concrete pads accommodate even the biggest rigs. Wi-Fi was the best we have experienced in several months of travel and over 10 military campgrounds. Initially, we intended to stay the Navy Lake Recreation Area and went there first. The people there were very nice, but the CG was in disarray and not worth the 20.00 a night. We are very happy that we stayed at Midway RV park instead at 21.00 dollars a night was still a value compared to local CG’s.

Nice CG, although a little high priced. Host is active duty, but goes out of his way when he's on-site. We entered via the 'front' gate without any difficulties - it was typically tight, but good. All spots are back in, but concrete and easy to do. Only issue we had wasn't with the CG, but when we tried to leave on a Saturday morning early. The only gate open was the commercial one, but they have a really tight slalom exit and had put orange pylons all over the place. Our Montana isn't a wide-body, but I'm positive I had only a couple inches clearance more than once. IF you've one of the new super-wides, I'd make certain you stayed until a weekday so you can go out with the truck/trailers. (Really did mess up their pylon setup though!)

Noise level at night is higher than one would think a military park off the beaten path would be. Golf course is outside the fence area and since it is open to the public we found it to be unfriendly to military people. The bathhouse is nice and clean, but, the temperature a couple of nights we were here fell below freezing and the house has no heat (made for quick showers).

V.L. left this review using the Directory software: - Nice place! Grass was cut and general campground was well manicured. Very clean. RV pads are concrete, but all are back-ins. There is an unusual arrangement in that about 6 sites form a cul-de-sac with a wide paved center area more maneuvering. Only negative is the height of the curbs. Scraped my rear stabilizer jacks and bent one just a bit. Had I backed perfectly straight, this may not have happened. Like others said, this is right behind commissary and BX. They are an easy walk.

This was our second stay here. Camp Hosts Richard and Tammy are tops in hospitality! EASY access to the RV Park from the gate. Spacious sites, though several (10 or so) were out of order; reservations recommended. You can have sun or shade or both. Walk to the commissary if your shopping list is small. Free laundry. Bathroom w/shower accommodates only one person at a time. It appears the conditions cited in the November 2013 review have been addressed and corrected. 30 minutes to downtown Memphis. We will stay here again.

First time visit, passing through to Louisiana. Place was clean and camp host was friendly. Small base so everything, the Club shopping and ITT were close. The only concern was the emergency storm shelter is far away.

3-4 November 2013

What started out as a very nice campground a few years ago, has turned into the worst NAVY campground we have seen in our 10 years of full time RVing. The campground itself has trash abundant in just about every site, I saw bags of trash in two vacant sites just walking to the laundry and back. The abundance of built up dirt on the road surfaces indicate that the roads have not been swept for months and the overall appearance is of a very old junky county park. Of the 48 sites 1/3 of them have rental trailers on them. The “Bath House” is the biggest joke. The rear entrance door is barricaded and taped with caution tape because the wood on the porch is removed for repair, but nothing is being done, the project appears abandoned. The interior is trashed out. The TV has no remote and cannot receive a signal using the controls on the set itself, absolutely no reception on any channel. I even tried to get a signal through the DVD/VHS player, but no such luck. There are two temporary portable air conditioners that are set on a footstool and a chair, I guess because the buildings A/C unit is broken. There are 8 fluorescent lights in the ceiling, one does not work and four of the others are about to burn out as half of the bulbs are missing or blinking, and ready to go out. Of the 7 working lights there are three different types of bulbs used. The chairs appear to be from an old hospital waiting room, very uncomfortable for watching the TV that does not work or sitting and reading while waiting for your laundry to finish. The two dryers do not dry the clothes on one timed cycle, even a small load requires to cycles to get them dry. There is a broken (cracked) window facing the front. There was a poster on the wall advertising an event in June 2013 (it is now November 2013). I observed three different dogs running loose with the owners just watching them, (one from his RV door while his big dog did his duty out behind the RV, it was not picked up.) Another was a puppy that chased after me from its RV about a block away, I didn't see any dog mess anywhere, but the doggy bags for the rear doggy bag dispenser was laying on the ground. (I did pick them up and put them back into the dispenser). On a positive side, the staff at the MWR office were top notch. Very positive and jubilant. Also the two washing machines did appear to work. It is a shame that this RV park has deteriorated to this condition. It appears that there is no interest in maintaining it as it should be. The bath house needs to be demolished and replaced with one that is functional. Both the men and women’s showers open right up to the common area of the laundry area and TV/Reading area. These should not have access to the common area, yuck.

This is one of the better military RV parks in the country. The sites are all back-in on cul-de-sacs. The sites are paved and very wide with good hook-ups. You can literally walk to the commissary and exchange, and there is an excellent fitness facility (on base) just down the street. If you have children, there is an excellent, free water park. Free WiFi was available but spotty. We camped here in a very large 5th wheel and we would definitely come back again.
