Arrived at the office after big detour due to oil spill on base. Thankfully, MP's escorted us to Lake Tholloco roadway. Young lady at the office assigned us a site but upon arriving there was told not to take it as they were cutting trees there for the next few days. Took the site adjacent to it with no problems and had a nice view of the lake. Unable to get satellite reception but did get over air channels. Last few miles into the campground is gravel and was very dusty resulting in a very dirty motorhome but we were allowed to wash vehicles at our site. Camp host states that they are trying to get the road paved. Nice peaceful stay as helicopter noise didn't bother us at all. Would come again. Dump station is not far and didn't need it until leaving as we only stayed 4 days.
I found this to be a nice campground. The bathrooms and showers are old, but very clean. I did not go anywhere on base, so cannot comment on anything there. I did enter the GPS coordinates and had a hard time finding. Changed it to Johnson Rd. (anywhere) at Ft. Rucker and it got me to the main gate sort of. If you turn off US 84 onto state 85, it will take you right to the main gate. From there, straight ahead until you come to signs that will take you right to the RV Park and the Outdoor Rec. office. After I got into my site, #4, I entered the GPS coordinates again and it said I had 9.8 miles to go and showed the destination on the other side of the lake. Staff was friendly.
Park Staff helpful and accommodated last minute Labor Day Weekend booking that we wanted as I had to evacuate LA for Hurricane Gustav. We enjoyed Scenic Site 7 on outside of loop. Could have stood a little forest debris cleanup, but was right up against woods so some natural debris is acceptable to me. Campground never filled, staff thinks due to no sewer hookups and has availability year round for this reason. Nice to have concrete pad and 50 AMPs. I thought I parked pretty well but was too close to Shepherds Crook Light Pole to easily use awning - my fault or theirs? Dump station was fine. Bathhouse was clean but dated and concrete shower floor paint was very worn. We don't usually use the "facilities" and for a short no more than one black tank full visit worked out very well for us. Never met the "Camp Boss".
