Perfect for our use! Big, level concrete spaces with super easy access. We arrived 10:30 at night and found a late arrival was very easy and uncomplicated. All facilities were very clean and well kept, with the only exception being a few low-lifes who don't pick up after their dogs! We travel with 4 dogs, so not a hater, just don't appreciate others not picking up! Base facilities are very close and the gas station is big rig friendly too. Dog park is a nice addition to give our dogs a little running room! Very quiet and secure with base police driving through periodically.

November 2, 2014... once again the directions have changed. As of today: Take Exit 14 as directions indicate. Once you've passed through Gate 9, travel approximately 1/4 mile until you reach the first stop light. Turn left. Despite the fact that there are no street signs, this actually is Goss Road now! It essentially now turns you back the direction you came from (back -toward- Gate 9) but you are now on the base and paralleling the road you entered on. It will eventually make a long sweeping right curve and you'll now see signs indicating you are on Goss Road and it becomes two lanes. Follow Goss Road 1.5 miles. You'll see an "RV Campground" sign on your right just before Jupiter St. Turn right onto Jupiter St. and follow it on into the campground. The information re the shoppette if you go too far is still correct. Per the folks at MWR, plans are in the works to revise the Gate 9 access, so this may very well change again in the future.

Changes at Gate 9 make it easier to get to campground (see Note below). We stayed in space 15 directly across from laundry and bath house. Made our reservations via phone and just pulled in. They have name/dates of your stay and your receipt in a Lucite letterbox on your site. Couldn't have been easier. This is a well kept facility. Pads level and large. We did not use bath house but did do laundry and everything was clean and convenient. We found the information about Wi-Fi access in the laundry building. They apparently change access codes frequently and it is written on the white board inside of the laundry room. Flyers are also available to help you get on the first time -- you will then set up a courtesy account via MWR Lodging. There is no longer cable available for short term stays. Those staying longer have to make arrangements with local provider. Information can be found on the information boards at bath house. We didn't really see anyone our entire stay, but it rained almost continuously and part of the time was a weekend. However, we did get a note on our door while we were gone one day, letting us know that weather alerts had been issued and that the bathhouse was the emergency shelter. We would definitely return and would highly recommend this campground to others for convenience, cleanliness, and accessibility to local area. NOTE: One slight change in directions. When you enter Gate 9, they have put in new roads and you no longer have to make the U-turn noted in directions above. You go to the first red light and turn left onto Goss Road and follow that until you see the campground sign. If you get to the Express (Shoppette) you have gone to far, BUT you can turn right at the shoppette, turn right again on Jupiter (Commissary and PX would be left turn), and follow Jupiter as per directions above.
All sites are near perfect, long, wide and concrete, pull thru, but NO shade. It's HOT in AL in summer. Each site rises just a little from rear to front. Even the hookups are in concrete next to the parking pad, no dirty lines to put in the unit when moving on. Not BBQ, yes picnic table. I had no contact with anyone about our stay, I had a pre-paid reservation. There is a camp host but I never saw him/her. The bath house is clean but small, 2 toilets, 1 shower. The laundry is clean and only $1 to wash or dry. The walking/biking trail is about 100 yards southwest. The PX and commissary less than 1 mile east. The directions are right on, easy access, no need to scout for problems.

Great FamCamp. Stayed here 3 nights. Very large concrete pads, great laundry facilities. Very close to PX and Exchange. Car wash was great also. Watch diesel prices in town. Range from $3.74 to $3.62 per gallon. Gas Buddy helped a lot. Will stop here again if we are ever in the area.
...just call and get the reservation and then go to your site # on the afternoon of the date of your arrival... ...no checkin... ...the folks at Outdoor Recreation are great to work with...

Stopped by to check the RV Park out. It was a cool and cloudy Fall day. There were still about 6 - 9 RV sits available. This is an RV Park we wouldn't mind coming back to and staying at for a month or so. Glad to see the have the proper stay limits posted. We didn't notice any homesteading abuse.

If you are looking for a quiet place, you've found it. There was very little noise and the campground has almost no traffic. Sites are long and concrete, electricity is great, cable is clear and Wi-Fi was very strong. You are close to gates and Huntsville has lots to offer. Be sure to check out the small historic area downtown in their Constitution Village. Many of the buildings remind you of Williamsburg. Remember to call ahead for your campground reservation.

You just have to love the Huntsville, AL area. They are respectful of all veterans, and the space program. There are literally hundreds of things to do in the area. Plenty of eating establishments, plenty of parks and nice golf courses in the area. The 36 holes on Post are fine and fun to play, though a little expensive to play at $37 for a green fee and cart. The commissary and BX are great. Having to stop at the shoppette to buy ice after leaving the commissary is a bit of a pain but it's not far. I did find propane at Costco... $10 for a 30 lb bottle. Cheap... I will be back....

We overnighted in Redstone. I called (Jordan?) to make reservations, was charged and was given our site number right over the phone. How sweet that was. We followed the directions given, drove slow through the campground and went right to our site. The concrete slab was the biggest I've ever seen. Since we needed a few things for the galley, we walked a short two blocks to the commissary and back. This FamCamp was just what we needed for an overnight stay. Thank you Redstone MWR.

Do Not Follow GPS to Gate...went to a closed gate and wound up backing a 30' RV much further than I cared. After a lot of roaming around locating an open gate and eventually the RV Park the rest was great. Given site 3 for two nights. As others have already mentioned, sites are huge and level, concrete. All inner roads are gravel. Acceptable WiFi. On Air TV reception is good, several channels. BX/Commissary within walking distance. A very good walking (paved) trail behind the campground with miles of walking or biking trail. Excellent bath facilities, very clean and warm, which was very nice since the morning temps were in the 20s. Laundry ($1.00 per load) in same building. Close to Huntsville business activities, auto dealership, WalMart, etc...Enjoyed our stay.

Retired Navy couple, we stayed at the Redstone Arsenal for a few days although was quite chilly, super nice level pads, full hook-up, super clean restrooms and showers. Close to Exchange and Comissary overall can't complain and will go back again. We entered through gate 8 easy and close.
