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.

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.

We called to get a reservation when we were about a half hour away. They were very helpful and told us to take any spot that was open. We picked site 8 behind the bath house. The site was level and had a full hookups. Several of the other campers came over to help but we were distracted as I had to take my wife to the clinic due to an allergy issue. We only stayed one night but would highly recommend this campground to anyone traveling to or though Memphis.

The potential for this park to be a primo park is there. The GPS coordinates are spot on, the park is located not far from the gate, and the commissary is literally in the backyard. The NEX is not much further away, and they have an excellent gym and rec center with a free movie theater. There was no one there as a working camp host (you are pretty much on your own here), and the reservation office (not located in the park but you can call instead of go there) didn't open until 2pm. Even though we had a reservation, we hadn't been given a lot number at that time. Pulling in at noon, we found we just had to pull into a spot, wait until 2pm, and hope we didn't have to move if someone else had that spot reserved. (not too worried at this time of year, but....) The bathhouse/laundry room has only 2 older model commercial washers and dryers, one dryer taking twice as long to dry the same amount of clothing. It's nice that the lounge with a somewhat functioning old TV is in the same area as the washer/dryers so you can keep an eye on things though. I guess we have been spoiled at other military campgrounds - better laundry and lounge facilities, active and social camp hosts meeting and guiding you into your assigned spot, and less expensive rent along with those extras not found here. A word of caution when entering the base - there is an obstacle course upon entering and a short distance past the gate, and it appears formidable to anyone driving or towing an RV (we were towing a 42 ft toyhauler)...but the gate guard assured us 18 wheelers came thru all the time without any issues. This RV park would be deserving of all 5 stars if they would get working camp hosts, and put a little $$ into the lounge/laundry area. The base conveniences basically do everything else to make your stay worthwhile.

I am currently in route to California and decided to go off the beaten track to stay here hoping they had an auto repair place on base. Unfortunately they do not. I called at least a dozen times today and got the answering machine. Left my number the first time and they did not call me back. Finally about an hour out I got a real person. The campground is very clean and nice wide spots for big rigs. It's a very nice base. I hooked up to the 30 amp fired up the AC and then used microwave and the 30 amp tripped immediately. Had to get my adapter and hook up to 50 amp. Tried the cable TV and only got 6 channels however picked up 27 with my antenna. Internet connection is terrible. The reservations for the RV parks is run by the ITT. They normally do not open until 11AM because they are open until 9PM. I went to the office to extend my stay and found that there is one operator at the desk most of the time and they are doing the ITT duties, Gateway Inn and RV parks reservations. I witnessed them being very busy so this would explain why I did not get call backs and it was hard to get a live person on the phone.

This is the first Military Campground that we have ever stayed in. We stopped here for the night on our way to Texas, we had been driving for 11 hours in heavy thunderstorms, and we were exhausted, cold and hungry. We did not have reservations, we stopped in and called the number posted at the entry to the campground. The lady who answered the phone was very friendly and immediately got us into a campsite. As we were backing into our space, a truck pulled in and 2 men got out. They assisted my husband who is 100% DAV, with setting up our camper. The sites were roomy and very easy to maneuver our 30 foot 5th wheel into. It was extremely windy and cold outside. As I entered our camper, I was horrified to discover that one of our slide outs had leaked rain in as we had been traveling and the carpeting was soaked half way through our camper. I immediately relayed this information to my husband and "Joe" who was the guy helping set us up. Joe instructed the younger guy who was helping him, to go get a shop vac, which they brought back to our camper. Both my husband and I have multiple disabilities, and Joe observing this, used the shop vac to soak up all of the water, even moved the sofa to vac under there. He then set up one of the fans we had with us to assist the floor to dry, which it did overnite, thank goodness!! This is an experience that will remain with us forever, the impression we recieved of the help and kindness of the workers at this campground. We will definetly return and am anxious to visit other military campgrounds with this type of hospitality, a great impression on 1st timers. This campground is very clean, bath house is very nice, and even supplies a hair dryer. The commissary is located conveniently right beside the campground. This is definetly one we would recommend.

I was stationed in Millington back in the mid 70's and it was nice to come back and see all the changes. The campground was very quiet with only 7 or 8 campers being occupied. There were quite a few campers that we saw no one and looked like they had been there for awhile. The TV in the lounge/bathhouse did not work, it did not even have a cable or antenna connected to it. The golf course and club house was outstanding. We entered the base from TN 385 going in the South Gate, which puts just a couple blocks from the campground.

The park is a gem in the rough. Nice location just behind the commissary. The exchange is one of the better ones I've seen. The park is nice, just at the edge of the housing area. All the sites are large with concrete pads and full hookups. The directions on this site are correct and easy to use. Registration was all done over the phone as there was no instructions in the mail box. We would stay here again when in the area. We stayed here in a 5th wheel.

The park is a gem in the rough. Nice location just behind the commissary. The exchange is one of the better ones I've seen. The park is nice, just at the edge of the housing area. All the sites are large with concrete pads and full hookups. The directions on this site are correct and easy to use. Registration was all done over the phone as there was no instructions in the mail box. We would stay here again when in the area. We stayed here in a 5th wheel.

This campground is out of the way, but facilities could be very nice with management. There is only one sign showing where this area is on base. Ask at gate direction to commissary. We found of the 4 gate guards only 1 knew where the campground was located. The area is behind the commissary, turn beside the commissary (opposite side from water tower)then take 1st road to right. No sign at this road,just look for campers. The campers sit on concrete pads, with lots of room. There is an active duty host, currently in very back on site 20. No information was available in mailbox as sign beside it and this website states. Rec Office opens at 2pm to 9pm on weekends so after finding the host for help he said park and call rec office after 2pm. There were no doggie sacks and trash can was full. Nice bathhouse, laundry, tv, rec area located in only building in area. Big trees, concrete pads and roads. BX is one of the better ones I've seen. But for a small base there are lots of high ranking officers so military facilities are nice, but have overlooked their money maker - the famcamp. ADDITIONAL SIGNAGE, CAMPGROUND NEEDS OVERALL MAINTENANCE AND SUPPLIES, A BETTER SIGN-IN PLAN, AND A FULL TIME HOST THAT ACTUALLY DOES HOST DUTIES (like watching for new campers, filling doggie bags and insuring campground is clean and working properly). There was a plastic sign laying on the ground by empty info mailbox that said host on site 20, but no arrow to show which cul-de-sac that site is located. We asked a person walking down the street for direction. Not knowing the campground layout and driving a large motorhome with tow you need to know where you can get into and out of without problems. A nice campground overall needs TLC to make it really nice. Better than many military campgrounds we have used.

Would have giving it a higher rating on Facilities, however, only two washers and dryers of which one washer was jammed and the one dryer I used was slow. Had to do another cycle to get clothes dry. Found no other laundry facilities close. One laundromat outside the north gate charges $2.25 to wash and 50 cents for 10 min of dryer. The campground is well kept. WIFI works great. The sites are very spacious. Checking in can be somewhat confusing. They do accept reservations and will give you your space number if you call the day of arrival. However, if you do not call, a sign at the entrance says to see "camp host, space #20". All we found in space #20 was two four-wheelers and some personal items. Check-in is at ITT close to the BX. Staff there is very helpful. We have stayed here before and will come back again, when in the area.

The web site shows that there is Diesel, however the base service station does not have it. Very friendly staff at the office.

Entered from hwy 385 at the south gate. Lanes are very narrow, and slalom comes are extremely close together; you have to take it slow entering. Commissary is within walking distance. Presently, on the weekends, visitors such as us have to exit/enter the base thru the south gate; to exit/enter the gate with access to Navy Road, you need a super-duper/handy-dandy I.D. card. Felt like a second class citizen due to this situation, which adds miles to a trip to Millington. On the south gate, the slalom cones are extremely closed together and narrow. The ITT is closed on the weekend. Stay away from site 22; it is missing the potable water hook up. We had site 24, and hooked up our 30 amp cord; kept popping the circuit breaker on utility connection; had to use a 50 amp with adapter. No cable. We had reservations, arrived at the r.v. park, made our selection, and called the number on the sign at the front of the park. A kind clerk took our credit card info over the phone. All in all, a good place to spend a few days. A Wal Mart is in Millington, but due to gate situation, stay on hwy 204 for a few miles, and one appears to your right.

Everyone friendly. Gate Guard had map avail upon request. To find RV Park locate the Commissary. Turn on Polaris which goes along side of Commissary and it will lead you to entrance of Midway. Watch for untrimmed trees. Recommend you go directly to RV Park and find site location to your liking. Was able to get Direct Sat reception. After you can go the the Recreation Center on Essex street to register. Large parking lot across street big enough for RV and toad if needed. There is a Camp Host on site who will help and report any problems. Bath House is air conditioned, has no bath but Men and Ladies restroom with handicap shower and toilet. There are wash and dryer (2 ea) . No cable TV, but antenna or sat aimed over trees. ITT Office was excellent. Gave great discounts and information. When going to Memphis, go to Sun records first if you wan free bus service to Graceland and other sites. To hear the Blues and Rock n Roll and great food, visit Beale Street (off 3rd). Beale Street is open till 3am when police clear it. Public parking garages avail near Beale Street. On Wednesdays, the street entrances are blocked and reserved for motorcycles. There is a Camp Ground at Graceland but Memphis is in the top 5 of crime. Your decision. WalMart only a few miles away and cheaper than Commissary.

Follow the directions according to the website and you will have no problems getting onto the base. I would recommend coming in the Singleton Gate, Option 2 above as it is the commercial vehicle entrance. The sites are large and there was no issue parking my 40' 5th wheel with 4 slides. The concrete was cracked on my site, however there were no issues at all leveling the trailer. The laundry room has 3 washers, $1.25 a load and 2 dryers, $1.00 a load. One of the washers was broken and the other wouldn't dry too well either. I reported the issue and hopefully they will fix both dryers soon. The park is a good value for the price, $24 for full hookups. It is approximately a 20 min drive to downtown Memphis and if you drive out the main gate and turn left toward HWY 51, there are restaurants and some small shopping centers. We would stay here again!

We arrived and stopped at the entrance point to the FamCamp, sign says to call the office for information -- called and were instructed to choose any available site. Selected a site and proceeded to unload/setup. Wife drove over to the office to register -- and was told the site we selected was "Reserved". There was no sign to reflect the "Reserved" status. We were allowed to stay on the site. Eighteen of the sites are used for old FEMA trailers that MWR rents and several other sites are occupied by long-term folks (site next to us, folks stated they had been there for three-years due to the economy). Many of the pads are in need of maintenance (broken concrete, water leaks, and/or electrical issues). Bathhouse/lounge/laundry are located in a small portable building that has seen better days. The major "plus" for this FamCamp is the location -- close to many of the Memphis area attractions and the base has a nice NEX, commissary, and clubs.
