It has been a year since we were here and it is still a great campground. Our Verizon Broadband last year was average and this year not so much! Water pressure no better, no one can explain why so we live with it. One concern we had was an RV that was there last year is still in the same site. When we asked if they started homesteading we were told these people come back and always ask for the same site throughout the year, lots of stuff on the site so not sure if I am convinced they told me the whole truth. They did a great job with the new PX and Food Court and I read about a new museum under construction but did not see it. Hope we can get back before another year goes by.
We found the post AND the campground quite difficult to find but with several calls to the RV office staff, we managed to finally find it. They were patient with us. There were deer everywhere and alot of them so tame they were laying down on the grass. We enjoyed watching them from our window when we had coffee in the mornings. Three laundry rooms, one for each area and we were near the largest one. There was actually a pool in the middle of the RV park which looked really nice. It was open the day we got there but not afterwards (it was sprinkling on and off which is probably why). Wish we would have been able to utilize it. There were no hours posted and it was padlocked. You can hear C-130's overhead and we saw paratroopers coming out of one the planes while we were there. My husband attended jump school here in 1967 so he enjoyed a lot of the activity on base including paratroopers jumping from the jump towers. Very nice exchange mall - the 2nd or 3rd largest in the nation. (Ft Campbell is the largest). We were sorry to see that the Museum on post was closed while we were there. We were told that it won't reopen for another year. Very low water pressure which is annoying and very limited Verizon cell coverage, but they have cable TV with lots of stations. Office staff is friendly and many of the workers wave at you as they drive by. Spacious campsites with picnic table, grill AND fire ring. Not too close to other campers, which is nice.
Once again we found this campground to be one of our favorites. More deer there everytime we go and our cats love watching the wildlife. Water pressure was no more than 25 psi and maintenance could not find out why and they said it had nothing to do with water crisis in the state. For you shoppers out there the new and improved PX should be open before month end. Will definitely be back!
We stayed here for our 1st time while my wife had knee surgery at Hughston Clinic in Columbus. The lady that took my reservation was GREAT and very friendly. She gave me a map of the open sites and told me to find the one I liked. When we checked in everyone in the office were very nice. I have a MotoSat Satellite on my MH and wanted a site without a lot of trees, the one I found was a nice back in. All the pull thru sites are "curved" and alongside the road. The park is nice and quiet and I would stay here again.
This is a beautiful campground. The sites are large, level, and have excellent hook ups. However, it has some downsides that you should be aware of. The following comments are offered as information, not complaint. First of all, it is a long ways from the CG to any base services (hospital, PX, Commissary) and any community services (e.g. shopping.) If you want to go any place, you will have to drive a minimum of 8 miles--the distance to the commissary/exchange complex. Cell phone coverage is weak and the large number of trees rendered our satellite useless. There are sites where one could get a satellite signal, but they are few and far between. Our Internet connection (through Verizon Broadband) was spotty and slow at best, when it was even available. Of course, there were also frequent over flights of large military aircraft (there is a parachute drop zone close by), but to us retirees that's the "sound of freedom" and we didn't mind it. There were no night drops while we were there. The park does not enforce its pet rules (there were several dogs tied outside the rigs while we were there, and at least two of them were "barkers" who disturbed other campers.) Given how long it looked like they had been there (kennels on the site) there was little evidence that management objected. There is still evidence of "homesteading" which is technically not allowed. The problem is worse at the back of the CG, less noticeable in the front areas. The park was very busy when we were there, due in part to it being spring break and Easter weekend. Unlike many other military campgrounds, there were a lot of families using the park--it was good to see youngsters being exposed to the camping experience--and the ones we had contact with were well behaved. However, if the sounds of children playing and riding bicycles around bothers you, this isn't the place for you. Hope this is helpful.
This campground it outstanding. The only reason it didn't get all 5 stars from me is because the water pressure was a whopping 27-32 psi (a dribble in the shower) and there isn't any internet service available = you have to have your own dish (which I've got). After just leaving Ft. Bliss TX and using their wireless internet services (much faster than my dish) I was spoiled. I mentioned the low water pressure to the people in the Country Store that run the campground and they said they occasionally get complaints, but it seems to be based on the camp site your at. We were in #8, a really long pull through site (which we prefer). If you like wildlife, you'll get to see a bunch here, especially in the evening. Deer, armadillo, and turkey were all observed while we were there.
