Navy Lake Recreational Area and Midway RV Park are both managed by the Central Reservation Center, Mid-South Naval Support Activity, Millington, TN. However, the parks are as different as day is to night. The Navy Lake facility is old and in much of need of support and motivation from the Command level of the base. The buildings need too much repair to even consider painting or providing a Band-Aid fix. The gravel RV sites provide water and electric service only. The 10 full service sites (water, sewer and 30 amp power) are paved providing a level parking area. They are so close together that awnings and slide-outs become a major challenge. On the plus side of the Navy Lake facility are the surroundings, which include a small lake, with well manicured lawns on rolling hills, in a wooded area (no shade for the sites).
