Made reservations in January for a September arrival. Called a week out to verify all was well and to verify amenities. The lady said it was full hookup, 50A pull-through. Rcvd a call from the same lady one day before arrival that they would be closing the office early on Friday before Labor Day. Said our site card and receipt would be in a lock box at the Education Building. I asked again about amenities and she again said yes, pull-through 50A FHU. Arrived early afternoon and was greeted by friendly gate guards. Drove to the education building as instructed and our name was not on the lock box list. Called Security from there and we were on his list for a site, so we proceeded to the campground. The camp host actually had our site card and receipt. Very friendly camp host. Site was 50A + water and back-in NOT 50A FHU pull-through. Suggest the office staff familiarize themselves with what amenities are available at their campground. Also, they could have saved me a trip to the education building with my RV if they would have told me the camp host had my stuff. Not very thoughtful on their part. Other than that, the 50A worked well. Water was good quality. Free firewood for our fire ring, although we did not use any. Ample dumpsters and recyclable bins. Plenty of room to maneuver our 42 ft long fifth wheel into our paved back-in site. No overhead obstructions, but also no satellite reception due to the trees. We did receive a few local stations but only one network (CBS). Cell voice and data coverage (AT&T and Verizon) was good. Large laundry facility in the midst of the barracks. 16 washers and 16 dryers, free of charge. If this place were full of soldiers it might have been a wait but we owned the place this holiday weekend. Did not make it to the museum, but looked like a nice one. Bring your bug spray as the mosquitoes will make sure you know you have entered their AOR!!
This is one of those gems you seldom hear about. Only 15 sites, spaced so far apart you have to yell to get your neighbor's attention. Heavily forested area with lots of grass, so satellite TV is almost negligible but we received nine OTA channels. Good WiFi throughout the post, and Verizon cell/data worked well. Miles and miles of empty building during our stay, and we had the 40 washer/dryer laundry to ourselves - all free and with new machines. Didn't see the host during our stay, but there was firewood stacked on our fire ring and a free supply available. If you plan on sitting outside, bring lots of mosquito repellent - they rival Alaska here! Not much in the area, but Little Falls has a Super Wal-Mart and the Charles Lindbergh home and museum is worth a visit.
Nice clean, very well groomed park. Bathrooms were spotless. This is a National Guard base so there are really no facilities like BX, Commissary, etc. Lots of tall trees so you may have problems getting your satelite to work. We were the only ones parked here because the hosts were called away on an emergency, so we picked the site that worked best for us. We parked in our 40' motorhome.
This is quiet campground and the campground hosts for 2012 were superb. The firewood is free and they do have water and electric hookups. The shower facilities were very clean and well kept. The swimming beach is about ten miles from the campground. However, there is fishing on site. They also have a playground on site and a covered fire pit to use on those rainy days. Otherwise each site has a pit also. On the post itself it has a small PX (more of the size of a Shopette).
CG is similar to a state park with large trees abounding making for great shade but, limiting solar recovery to mid day only. CG is patrolled by security routinely. Tall grass in campground required us to use our weed eater to clean our site. Dump station available next to campground road but no water access there. Dump & Water available at Holiday Pantry service station near Walmart on the north side of Little Falls. Would stay here again.
