WEB page says reservations not needed - wrong! On 10/1/2016 after driving 18 miles out of my way I was given biggest run around of my life. The phone number listed isn't correct and they admitted that their WEB page was out dated, Hum, why not update it then? Was told I needed a reservation, but they could give me one, all I wanted was night because we were passing through. Apparent they had scheduled an activity at the lake for the next day so only the homesteaders were allowed to be there. Do yourself a favor and skip trying to stay here. Maybe when their money dries up they will make a change of heart and be more helpful.
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).
Was there in early Nov 2006. See nothing has changed. Agreed with other raters. Think it is far over priced for what you get. Would not drive out of my way for 1 or 2 days to stay there unless needed lots of other things on the base. Too bad the one on the main base is all new and could really be nice with the right management, but have no change to these in the last 2 years.
This could be a nice campground. It is surrounded by a pretty lake and is in a rural setting. But the campsites, both full hookup and water/electric are not very attractive. And the guys running the campground - where did the Navy get these people? I don't think I would ever go back there again.
