This will be a somewhat volatile review due to ever changing conditions. The Naval Station is recovering from the flooding that occurred in western Tennessee in the Spring of 2010. The Gas Station and Pool are OOC. Several barracks and office buildings were flooded resulting in occupants being relocated. The NEX, Commissary, and Package Store are still in operation. Enlisted Housing was flooded - some occupants are now housed in the RV Park in trailers provided by MWR (lucky the MWR national HQ is on the base). But, there was still plenty of room at Midway - I counted 9 empty sites. The very friendly staff at the RV Park Office (about a mile from the park) have a photo album of the flooded base. One photo of two gents at the gas station shows them standing in shoulder deep water. Bathhouse/head/laundry: There is one "stall" for each gender. Commode, sink, shower all co-located, so timing is everything. 2 Washers, 2 Dryers (dryer may require two run-throughs). Sites: Flat! Spacious, Full hookups, 50 amp, all are back-in but there's plenty of room to get it right the first time. Location: The Commissary is walking distance from the RV Park (less than a quarter mile). Nex is a short drive. Millington's "strip" is about a 10-minute drive (out the Wasp Ave Gate). Downtown Memphis is less than a 30-minute drive. The ribs are good wherever you get them. On Beale Street, if you go into a food n drink establishment before the musicians start to play, you can avoid the cover charge. If you cook with a smoker, don't leave Memphis without some rubs and sauces.
