I have been coming to this campground for the past five years and every year it gets a little worse. It seems that all the money is being spent on something other than upkeep.The entire time we were there one of the two cloth dryers was Out of Order and on the day we left I posted a note on the Facebook page and got a response from the Manager that he did not realize this was a problem and would get it fixed the next day.I do not understand how the USAF can let a beautiful piece of property like this go to H---.
Used to be a good stop when heading N/S on I 75. Do you like State Parks? That is what this place has turned into. They ran all the military out few years ago. And now let anyone stay here. Do not have to be military related in any way. C I V I L I A N S are staying here now. And don't mean government civiil service types. These civilians could care less about the military or military members. They are here because the price is right for them. Will never stay here again Should have read and learned something from the warnings given by others on here. If you are military retired or active duty best to not stop here.
Grassy Pond is a small rustic campground with gravel back-in and pull-thru sites. It is located 26 miles south of MOODY AFB making trips to the base a long one. A WAL-MART is located about 15 miles to the north of the campground. The campground is in need of repair. The gravel roads inside the campground had potholes impossible to avoid. The cable TV hook-up once there, no longer works. The 3.1 mile hiking trail is nice however the walking bridges are in need of repair. There are a couple long term, permanent campers located near the entrance of the campground. These campers are in need of repair or removal. Debris and 2 broken down boats are also in the area of the permanent RVrs. Activities involve nightly card games and dominos played in the "Round House" located in the center of the campground. Also the community fire pit located in the center of the campground burns almost nonstop in the winter. Thursday night POT luck dinners and Sunday morning breakfast (camp host sponsored) for 3.50 a person. I rented a cabin for visiting family and had to clean the cabin to bring it up to standard and the heater failed to work. Bottom line is Grassy Pond could be a nice park with more involvement by management.
