Directions

Directions
On I-565, take exit 14 toward Gate 9/Redstone Arsenal. The gate will have several entrances, maybe 7-8, but use the gate lights (red and green) to select the left most green lighted gate. After getting thru the gate by showing your ID, keep left, DO NOT turn left at the first light. Go past the lights and look left for a U turn sign for Goss Road. Take the U turn and go straight (you are now headed back toward the gate). Move to the right most lane. It will look like you are leaving the base. The red light you com to adjacent to the entrance gate is actually Goss Road. Turn right at that light and follow Goss Road for several miles. It will lead you around the golf course and then up a slight hill. As you go over the hill, begin to look on the right side for a very small sign that says “RV”. Turn on that street which is Jupiter street. Go to the end of Jupiter, which will dead end at the RV park. Follow the signage to the entrance (right off Jupiter then left at the dumpster and the entrance is on your left).

This is a no-frills FamCamp which is fine. Military FamCamps are not resorts. I love the security of FamCamps. When we stay on base, we know that like-minded veterans are sharing our love to travel. We stopped and stayed for a few weeks to spend time with family. The facilities are adequate. The base needs to outsource a contract for new washers and dryers. Every time we've stopped, one or two, and three were out of service this year. They have expanded the park to more than 100 sites. The base has published the SOP and has posted it in the laundry room. The problem is they need to go by the rules. We are on site 27; there are five vehicles and an old trailer on the site next to ours. No one is on-site, and two vehicles are expired plates from Texas. Sites 1-45 are short-term visitors for 4 to 8 wks. 45-100 are primarily contractors. Most of the RVs have yet to see anyone coming or going. I have been told it is cheaper to put an RV on a site than store it in the storage lot adjacent to the campground. Is the FamCamp a storage lot or a FamCamp? Not sure why the military plays musical chairs with RVs. The husband called a month ago and asked for a particular site. That site has been empty since we arrived until today. The reservation system MWR is using needs to be updated. There must be a better way to put RVs on-site without packing up and moving every few weeks. We have a new camp host this year. Excellent, they are very proactive in keeping the facilities clean. This is the first year that the laundry area was clean. Overall Redstone FamCamp is a 4 out of 5 stars.

We have stayed here a few times as a halfway point going the New Orleans, Pensacola and Gulfport. Directions are spot on, sites are level and the dog park is always clean. Not a very loud campground and always clean. Very affordable too!

As mentioned it is just a few blocks from the PX and Commissary. But the arrival instructions are not accurate. Using the take exit 14 off I 565 to gate 9 is perfect. The gate will have several entrances, maybe 7-8, but use the gate lights (red and green) to select the left most green lighted gate. After getting thru the gate by showing your ID, keep left, DO NOT turn left at the first light. Go past the lights and look left for a U turn sign for Goss Road. Take the U turn and go straight (you are now headed back toward the gate). Move to the right most lane. It will look like you are leaving the base. The red light you come to adjacent to the entrance gate is actually Goss Road. Turn right at that light and follow Goss Road for several miles. It will lead you around the golf course and then up a slight hill. As you go over the hill, begin to look on the right side for a very small sign that says “RV”. Turn on that street which is Jupiter street. Go to the end of Jupiter, which will dead end at the RV park. Follow the signage to the entrance (right off Jupiter then left at the dumpster and the entrance is on your left). The confusion is caused by the directions that tell you to turn left at the first light … which is not true. (Editors note: The directions have been updated).

Never ever had to mow my site in a camp ground until here at redstone. Camp host on a big riding mower manicured his spot left the rest of us with waist high weeds. Used the old push mower left at the laundry entrance to mow. 600$ a month and you mow I just do t see this as a great deal.

This is our first visit to Redstone Arsenal. I am writing this review while currently parked in the campground because we have had such a great experience here and wanted to share it! We came in at Gate 8 and had a very smooth entry, only needing to show an ID card, then traveled about 1/4 mile and saw a sign for the RV Park to the left onto Jupiter St. It took us right to the campground! The layout, signage, and sites are very well planned. Plenty of information and easy to get around. Very quiet, too. The WiFi is not very robust. Cable channels are satisfactory. There's a nice dog park; the dog run is overgrown and doesn't appear to have been used in some time. There's plenty of areas to walk the dog or ride a bike. We perused Redstone Arsenal and were amazed by everything happening here! We enjoyed Rocket Park and other space race static displays. We also learned about new space projects taking place here. NASA has a presence here. We saw NASA's International Space Station Payload Operations and Integration Center, the National Historic Landmark Redstone Test Stand, and more! A great experience.

Redstone Arsenal MWR RV Park in Huntsville Alabama is an awesome campground and has a perfect location to explore the local area. The daily rate is $25 a night and the weekly rate is $150. It is very well laid out and very quiet. It's very close to the Commissary and the Exchange. The bathhouse is well maintained and clean. The washroom facilities has four washers and four dryers, which are well maintained and very clean too. Our camp host were very friendly and helpful. We love this place and would stay here again. We definitely recommend Redstone Arsenal MWR RV Park to anyone wanting to explore Huntsville Alabama.

Did not actually get to visit because my reservation was not accepted because I was not a civilian contractor although I am a 100% disabled vet. Not a good experience.

First off I have to say the Camp Host, Phil and Terri were very friendly. We were greeted and given our packet and shown where we were to be parked. Everything was great. One word of caution to campers is that you might need an electrical extension and maybe an extra water hose because for some reason the electrical boxes and water connection were installed too far forward. The concrete pads are great. The cable hasn't been connected but we were able to get around 20 channels over our antenna. The campground was full during our stay and was very quite. Gate 9 is the easiest gate to get in but all gates are large enough for RV's to clear. After clearing Gate 9, you get into the left lane and go about 3/4 of a mile then turn left on Homestead Rd. Then turn left onto Rideout and get into the right lane. Follow the signs to Goss Rd. We ride in a 43" Class A. This was not our first stop here nor will it be our last. So far this is the best Army Campground we have ever stayed at.

I spent two weeks in June/July 2019 at this campground. It was hot! The campground was very nice. It has the largest concrete pads I've ever stayed on in 15 years of RVing. There are no trees in the campground, so it stays hot. The sites are only $20 per night. You can't beat that! You are close to the Rocket Center. The exchange, commissary, and class 6 are all with 2 blocks of the RV Park. I'll stay there again! It's my understanding they are going to expand the campground to add more sites.

Great campground! Most sites are pull-through, full hook-up with large concrete pads. The campground host was great and very helpful. This site has changed our focus, to use more Military Campgrounds when available. Good park for satellite reception. They have cable but we didn’t try it, so no comment. The Campground has everything you need, nothing you don’t. Close to the BX and Commissary, I would say within walking distance, if it wasn’t August and 100 degrees might be something I would do. Huntsville is a great little city, lots to do and this campground is the best in the local area. Definitely use Gate 9, and follow the directions provided. The Goss Road Intersection is currently under construction so look for the detour “cut-over” road or you’ll get to see a lot more of Redstone then you’ll want to.

This is a nice campground with very large RV sites. The RvVsites are the biggest we have ever had. They are slopped just a little. You are very close to the commissary, gas station and off the base there is everything under the sun that one would need. There is a mall right outside gate 9. Gate 9 is all messed up due to the new roads and you have to do a U Turn to get into the base. Gate 8 was so much easier to get into the base. There is a very nice laundry room. Never used the showers. That being said, there is a lot of DOD folks who taking up way too many of the RV spots who have been there for years. It is very hard for a retiree to get a spot with so many folks living full time at the campground. There are no trees and the heat during the month of Aug was extreme. We were told that too many people complained about their Satellite would not work because of the trees. I would of given anything for a little bit of shade. The other thing is the MWR office is like 5 miles from the campground and you must pay in full before you arrive. The daily rate starting in Sept will go up.

This is a very nice rv park. We camped in a 35 MH. All sites have huge 25x65 cement pads. Newer restroom and laundry. Dog run is big and “ clean “. Px and commissary are just a short bike ride or walk away. Space museum is 3 miles away.

Was crowded but was able to get a spot without a reservation. The camp host meet me as I drove in and that was a nice surprise--In the times I had been there previously never saw the camp host. Forgotten the site number but was pretty much in the middle of the CG, the WIFI was excellent. I can speak to it from the edges of the CG. Going back in Aug for the Huntsville Hamfest, will make reservation well ahead as this appears to becoming a hot location for campers.

The CG and base were excellent. The sites are enormous level cement pads! The area directly around the base is rather rundown, but downtown Huntsville and the shopping strip (University Dr.) has every kind of store and place to eat! The PX and Commissary are VERY close to the CG; a nice walk away... The hospital on base is very nice and also takes TriCare! Negatives were no WIFI and a LOT of homesteaders/contract workers; though didn't affect our stay (this time, but could be an issue during peak season). I will definitely stay here again!

Arrived mid afternoon and was met by Terri and she gave me directions to the campsite. Everything was great. All are nice pull through sites. Quite and enjoyable. Actually came back on the 19th for two night without a reservation. Even thought there were very near full, they managed to put me in a slot for two nights. They were very helpful.

Close to commisary exchange and gas station. Very nice walking trails. Huge cement pads with pull thrus from spots 15 - 70. Spots 8 -14 were back in with hookups to far forward actually at my front door of motorhome. This is a realy nice campground and we would always go back. They need to get rid of the abandoned truck and travel trailer on spot 1 for camphost which has been there fora year. We never saw this guy. Two new camphost on spot 14 and 70 are working to make this one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. No swingsets or playground for children.

We have a site in the newly opened area. The concrete pads are huge, plenty of room for our 43 foot motor home and tow car. Utilities are well placed and water pressure is high. Close to Commissary and PX. The new Gate 9 is very narrow so go slow as you enter.
