If you want peace and quit this is the place. This well maintained CG is a great place to stop when traveling threw or for a couple of weeks to catch up on those things to do on the rig. Large Camping World in Anniston. Things to do if you want to drive a bit. Talladega Super Speedway 15 miles, Birmingham 40 miles and Atlanta about a hour and a half. Super market just outside the gate and another about 3 miles away. Laundry is about 12 miles away. The on base shoppette has minor items. Security is high so expect to have your Vehicles and Rig searched every time you go threw the gate coming back on the depot. Value is great Water/ Sewer/ 50 amp / cable for $12.00 per day. Carol and Bob the camp hosts are very helpful.

C.H. left this review: Great little new campground! Wonderful and helpful Campground Hosts! Sites have all hookups in lighted Pedestals at rear of large and level concrete pads. Sewer hookups are in the middle. Large 2 Vehicle asphalt parking pads in front of each RV pad with a picnic table. Bathhouse at end of campground is climate controlled but small with 3 Showers, 1 each: Toilet, Urinal and sink on the Men's side. Floor is currently plain concrete. The WiFi Router is on the Bathhouse, so the signal is little weaker at the other end of the campground, but acceptable. Sites are shaded and back up to woods but are very close together at not quite 20' apart. No on-site Washer or Dryer service but AAFES Shoppette is within walking distance as is a Club. Railroad is visible, nearby and trains are frequent. 4 of the 8 sites were available while I was there, however MWR has rental trailers they move in and out and some guests are there semi-permanently. Hosts advised "long-term" policy will evolve as use/demand grows, and expansion of campground too. Close to Talladega AL, Cheaha State Park with highest point in AL (45 minutes away), and Chief Ladiga Rails to Trails Path ending in Anniston AL (continues to GA Border and on to Smyrna GA as the Silver Comet Trail) - a great biking trail. To clarify the driving instructions for first time Visitors: Once you make the second right turn, after you pass the first large parking lot on your left, as you go downhill and past a narrow grass berm between that parking lot and what appears to be another parking lot, but that second "parking lot" is actually an unnamed street that runs IN Front of Bldg 221 that has perpendicular parking in front of it - which is where you need to turn LEFT (behind the parked cars if a workday). If you miss that turn like I did, the next street for the White (?) meeting retreat on the left leads to a parking lot that when empty is big enough to turn around in.
