Great campground and ammenitites. Everything was in great shape and all the camp sites are upgraded to 50 amp. Grounds are mowed and well taken care of. We camped in the older section and loved it. Spaces have plenty of distance between neighbors except for the double sites. Whole campground has upgraded to a new wifi that is excellent. I can't believe I'd ever say that about military campground wifi but the Navy broke the code on it. They do it right at this campground. Love this place. The new office person (Angela) is excellent. She called the day we were to arrive just to make sure our plans had not changed. What a refreshing difference from most other campgrounds. She is great. They offer daily, weekly and monthly rates which is fantastic. We will stay here again.

This is a jewel. Very quiet, easy access, people all over the base are very nice. Called and made reservation. Got in, picked a spot then called to say we were here and what spot we had taken. Asked about getting small portable grill inspected and where to take it. Woman said just wait and I'll send someone over. FD Rep came over and said, there is no need to have it inspected. There is a misconception by MET to get things inspected. You can grill, use the fire pit, etc, no problem. $20's is not high, just paid $42 at VA state park with no available OTA (got out here), avg cell service, (full bars LTE here) not close to much (dntwn Richmond just minutes away). All for 1/2 the cost of a state park. Very quiet, did I mention that!?! Small convenience store, no diesel on base but easily obtained off base. Sorta strange dump setup but perfectly adequate. Definitely will stay here again.

Our first visit to this location. Overall it was good. When coming on post in your RV follow the directions, they work. When approaching the gate, it splits for auto/commercial and truck. We used the commercial lane as it was not clear which gate an RV or bus should use. The security guard informed us that we should have used the other one, but it was better to use this one as it is wider. He checked our ID and directed us to the RV sites. They are only 1/2 mile from the gate, on the left. It is located just beyond the RV/boat storage areas. Our check-in consisted of calling the same number we made reservations at. Our check-out was the same. We pulled in, picked a site and made the call. No problems. There is a very small shoppette with snack items and alcohol. There is a gas station on base. There are fire pits and extinguishers on site for grilling. Your grill must be inspected before use, so don't plan on using it. No sewer hookups but a dump station is close by. The sites were deep gravel which is not level, so you will want to use some jack pads. There are no facilities, but we knew that. It makes a great place visit the Richmond area. They do have a gym, which we did not use. The base becomes a ghost town after duty hours.

F.O. left this review using the Directory software: - Registration/payment for each night is at the Fitness Center which is on the left in the main building. You cannot take your trailer/RV to this location as there is no place to park or turn around. We dropped our trailer at the camp site and then registered. Great folks at the Rec Center. Camp ground is elec and water only. No bath/laundry facilities. All sites are crushed gravel vice cement pads. Dump site is between the two RV storage areas and easy to get too and use. Express Mart and gas station have limited hours so do not depend on these services on post. Easy access to Richmond, Chester, Petersburg and surrounding areas.

This is our second time here. I found out there is a small gas station on the installation and a shopette. Additionally there was an enclosure that had elk in it. The animals are well cared for and very beautiful. In the same area there's a nice park, picnic area and a playground for the kiddies. The camping area may be sparse, but the installation is well kept and seems to be a well kept secret. We will hopefully come here again!
