Arrived late afternoon on Sunday 7/7/19. Must enter the base by the main gate at the intersection of Wasp Avenue and (TN 205) Navy Road. Learned that the South Gate is closed for renovation of the gate guard shelters until further notice. The main gate does have a serpentine entrance. It was a bit tight for our F150 & 28 ft airstream. I was told that big rigs don't have a problem using this gate (and there were a lot of big rigs at the campground). Upon arrival we stopped the mailbox that gave us instructions. We had reservations which guarantee a site. We looked around a picked an empty site to occupy. Within 10 minutes of arrival the weekend host greeted us and gave us instructions. We called the MWR Rec Center at 901-874-5455 (alternative # to one listed in book and best # to call) to report our site selection. I had several interactions with the full time host, Roxi. She was super helpful, friendly and seems a diligent and hard working campground host. The published phone number to reach camp host is 901-508-1992. This is our first military campground stay. The major disappointment was the state of the bathhouse - it is in dire need of attention. There is only 1 working shower (in the men's restroom). Both men and women's bathroom need renovation. Certainly not an acceptable situation in my mind. I use the provided showers typically because of mobility issues and having to take a shower there was not a pleasant experience. What we LOVED about this campground: The Commissary is literally next door. It's good sized and has everything you might want AND it's open on Sunday. Large and well stocked NEX Shopette and gas station 2 blocks away All sites are full hookup Spacious between sites Very secure and quiet Free laundry (2 large capacity washers and dryers) Friendly neighbors Dog park within walking distance Reasonably close to Memphis for sightseeing Free wifi. Speed test using Speedcheck campground provided wifi: download 3.0 Mbps and upload 2.8 Mbps. With Verizon hotspot and antennae: download 29.47 Mbps and upload 9.94 Mbps. Speeds were better early in the morning and later in the evening. We were able to stream videos from YouTube without a problem using our hotspot and antennae. Using our onboard antennae pointed to the nearest tower we were able to access 20 digital TV channels including ABC and CBS for local news and weather. We would certainly come back again.

Arrived at the campground and was met by Roxi, who told me to pick a vacant site and get set up. She was very polite and helpful, explaining the check in process and things to see in the area. During duty hours, you have to go to the MWR Recreation Center to complete the check in process. The sites are long level concrete and easy to back in to. The tall trees kept me from getting a satellite signal, but a good choice of channels on antenna. The deer that came out of the woods kept my grandson entertained. If you enter the base from the south gate, don't pull into the commercial truck lane. The civilian security guards will speak to you harshly and let you know that is for commercial trucks only. RV's have to work their way thru the serpentine.

We spent 14 nights in a motorhome with W/S/E-50 Amp. Our site was a back-in with a concrete pad, patio, sidewalk and metal picnic table. The connections were conveniently located enabling easy hook-up. We were able to use our DISH Tailgater and also received numerous TV channels via antenna. The Wi-Fi was very good and we had no problem getting our AT&T phone signal. The laundry facilities are clean with two washers and dryers that can be used free of charge. Downtown Memphis is about 17 miles away with many touring and eating options. We also recommend visiting the Alex Haley Museum and Boyhood Home in Henning just 30 miles north. Overall, we give this campground an “Excellent” rating and would definitely stay here again.

We've stayed here twice before and each time have had good experiences. Midway is conveniently located not too far from I40 and the memphis metro area so it provides a good stopping over point on North-South and East West trips. Reserving through the centralized Navy system is pretty easy (save for the wait time on hold) and the campground process is easy: pull in, find and open site, and call the MWR to let them know you're there and in which site. My only complaint is about a common issue with most military famCamps; the homesteaders. Midway is not NEARLY as bad as some we've been to but there are still issues. We were located next to a fifth wheel with wooden deck steps placed up to the door, and there were 2 freezers and multiple ice chests outside the rig which did not appear to have been moved in some time. There was another site that was using a large residential propane cylinder that sat along side the RV. The rules on Midway's brochure explicitly prohibit this activity but are obviously unenforced. Hopefully, this will be addressed not only at Midway but other FamCamps as well.

Was called on the road to just drive in and pick a spot. Apparently that’s word didn’t get passed to the park manager. Accused me of blowing past him at an astonishing 5 mph. Got worse after that when he told me trailers are not allowed. When I made the reservation I always state it’s a 40’ with a trailer. No where on the web site does it say trailers are not allowed either. Thankfully we came to an agreement and I as able to park. Other than that not a bad place. Good internet, no cable but great HD Tv. Won’t be coming back though. Too hard to get to.

Stayed a week in our 36' motorhome. Sites are very level, plenty long & wide. W/E/S all worked fine. Camp host can be a little "gruff" at first, but he warmed up quickly. We spent the week getting our new rig winterized & ready for storage, but did do a bit of touring around Memphis (Gibson Guitar factory, Civil Rights Museum, Bass Pro shop store.) All in all, a pleasant visit!

Chose this park because if its' proximity to Memphis. We had made reservations for September 10 & 11, but we had made good travel time and got there a day early. They were able to accommodate us on such short notice. Picked our spot (15) which is near the back of the park. Plenty of room for our 36' Motor Home and our Jeep. Concrete pad, picnic table and full hook up. Hosts were very amiable and visible. Park was about 2/3 full, though there were about 5 spots that were out of order due to no power. Plenty of room between spots. There is a very large dog park (separated for large and small dogs) across the street. There is a big ditch which has a bridge over it to get there. It would be nice to have one directly across from the park, instead of having to walk down the road, cross over and then back up to the park, but it just gave us more exercise! The grass was a little high in the RV park, as was mentioned in another review, but not so high that you couldn't walk through it. Great location, right behind the commissary, and short distance to the Exchange. Overall, a very nice, safe park. Seeing the herd of deer was an added bonus! Would stay here again, for sure.

Be careful when backing into some of the spot because of the slopes you may hit your hitch or generator pipe. You may notice some of the scrapes on the pavement. We have a 43ft motorhome and backed at a angle. Plenty of space between sites. The host was rude, he introduced himself followed by I wish you people with these big busses would stop tearing up my concrete. As I reply I don't give a shit about your concrete its my $400.000 bus I worry about. So we exchanged words and he left. The grass was extremely high and looks like it had been weeks since it was mowed. However, with that said we would stay again (bring a weed eater) and limit my conversation with the host. Plenty of space between sites and a lot of room for big rigs. Ours is a 43ft motorhome. Sites are all 50ft I think so just pick one with less slope backing in.

$21 day for concrete slab with water/sewer/electric/WiFi and picnic table Pros FREE laundry!! They have brand new machines in the check in building that are free of charge Sites were level and long- plenty of room for even the biggest rigs Shade trees covering many of the sites which was perfect for us to keep the van cooler Walking distance to the commissary (closed Mondays) Only 30 mins away from the heart of Memphis Relatively speedy internet connection Take a book leave a book (or movie or CD) located in the check in building Clean temperature controlled bathrooms Walking distance to Recreation center (free movies) and Club (BINGO Wednesday and Friday) Great Verizon cell coverage Cons Sites choice is first come, first serve which worked out well for us but could be frustrating for larger rigs Everything on the base closes around 7/8pm Be mindful of the gnarly speed bumps we lost a few items off our shelves.

This park is laid out like 3 wagon wheels and, as a result, has plenty of room. No crowding at all. It is surrounded on 3 sides by woods allowing for quiet and privacy. Each pad is concrete and wide enough for a small patio and walkway. The roads and circular area in the center of the wagon wheel are all asphalt. The parking for your tow vehicle or toad is great! Again, because of the wagon wheel configuration, you have excessive parking area in front of the RV without being in anybody's way. Each site has full hookup and most have open sky for great satellite reception. There are also sites with shade trees. There is free laundry - nice and clean with a TV, desk, couch, chair, etc. in the room for comfort. That is also where the showers are. My husband said the men's shower wasn't too clean. The park is located just behind the commissary - within walking distance. The Exchange is nearby; it's a nice base. This has been a great RV park to spend the last 12 days and we wouldn't hesitate to come back.

First time here. If in the area again, would definitely stay. Reserved a site via Navy lodging. Arrived and found a site. Several sites were out of order. Most sites are setup like cul de sacs and all sites are back-in. Easy to do with so much room to maneuver. Entered via the north gate (Navy Rd) and had no problem driving my longbed dually pulling my 40' fifthwheel. School buses use this gate, too. The Singleton gate is slightly easier, and is MUCH closer to the RV park. Base dog park is about a 5 min walk. Nice big areas for large and small dogs across a foot bridge and down the road. Walking distance to the commissary. No diesel for sale on base. Auto Skills Center and car wash are about a quarter mile across the road from the Navy Road gate. Remember to stop at the stop sign a wait for the guard to wave you forward. Saw a newly assigned sailor get chewed out when he didn't.

This is a great Military Campground, one of the best that we stayed at over the past six weeks. One update is the GPS location - correct GPS is 35.328302,-89.865079 this will bring you to the South Gate entrance. Happy Camping!

Still a favorite place to stay for a few days and just relax. Free laundry with modern washers/dryers, nice shower facility, and plenty of shade. Nice Commissary and exchange within walking distance. The base is nicely laid out and far enough north of Memphis that you can avoid metro traffic coming from the north on highway 51, or from the south on 385. Back gate is closed on weekends/holidays. Taryn, the attendant was friendly and very helpful getting us into our sight.

We stayed for 2 months over the summer due to some repair work needed on our motorhome. They were usually pretty full while we were there. There are quite a number of long-term and permanent residents, both active duty and retired, along with a few trailers that appeared to be just parked on a site with no one actually staying there regularly. All the pads are back-in, 50 amps full hookups with plenty of space to maneuver. Pads are cement and there's plenty of space between most sites. Most of the sites have some shade with only a couple that are completely open to the sky. You aren't assigned a site#. Instead, you choose your site from any of the available ones there. You can also move to another empty site if you don't like the one you're in. You just have to update the park on your new site. We had some electrical problems for a few days after we arrived but the park manager personally changed the circuit breaker on the pedestal as soon as he could and problem solved. Water pressure was great, free wifi was good enough to check email. Free HE washers and dryers worked great. Bath house always looked clean. The grass was trimmed regularly in the park. There's a dog park across the street and plenty of areas to walk the dog. The two camp hosts are great about being visible and available. They were both active duty so they shared the hosting job depending on their schedules. During the week, a park employee is available to check in travelers in the laundry/bath house. It's a well managed and well maintained park.

The site had plenty of maneuvering room. All concrete. The convenience of being right behind the commissary was great. The shade trees and grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Great running and walking paths on base. The outside track on base is almost complete. Wi-Fi was great. It would nice to see cable and a pool on base. Overall it was a great experience.

Be sure to locate the North Gate if arriving after hours or on the weekend. Instructions to the North Gate (on Navy Road) are in Larry's direction. Free washers and good wifi are a definite plus. Back in parking spaces are well laid out with lots of room to maneuver. Park is located in back of the commissary.

Head for Mid-Way RV park instead of Navy Lake RV Park which is just north of golf course at the base as we were told by rv'ers at Navy Lake that they are closing that base spring 2017 and returning land back to the city. Difficult to get a live person on the phone so just pull in at Mid-Way and look for an open site. Wish there was a weekly rate but there is free laundry and Wi-Fi. Town of Millington, TN has everything. We would come back again.

Loved this campground and base. All of the sites are paved back-in sites and although a few permantee's there always seemed to be quite a few spaces open. We reserved online and although it was still first come, first served for the sites the reservation allowed us to call in to MWR and give them our site number. Commissary is next door, plenty of sidewalks for walking, NEX is just down the street and if Walmart, Lowes, or Starbucks are needed they are about 5 miles away. Will stay again if in the area.

We had not visited this RV park for a couple of years, but we had good memories of our previous visit. Customer service has improved, since our last visit, and Taryn was very pleasant and helpful getting us checked in. Our site was a level, concrete back-in site with plenty of room to maneuver. The access roads are all paved. The hookups were great, there is a free laundromat at the RV park, and the GoWiFi was good. The commissary is literally right around the corner, the NEX is 5 minutes away, and there is a great little water park (within walking distance) for kids. The only negative is that there is no recycling on site, but minimal recycling (cardboard, clear plastic, and aluminum cans) is available in the commissary parking lot. We would definitely stay here again if we were traveling through the area.

Great little park, nicely maintained, Taryn was a friendly and professional receptionist who checked us in; exceptionally nice free laundry facility and showers. Just stayed one night. North of Memphis about 15 miles but that makes it nice, quiet and peaceful. Spacious area between sites and shade. Walking and nature trails nearby. Commissary is easy walking distance. Definitely worth a stop for only $20 a night. Can't do better anywhere else.
