Stayed here during the Huntsville Hamfest. It is located close to downtown and the Von Braun Center. Lots of eating places nearby. No office on site, but made reservation on the phone and just came and went as I wanted. They could use some trees to provide some shade again the Summer heat. Could not get a WIFI connection but no big deal for me. Very nice concrete pad for parking the RV and truck.

Great campground. All sites are pull-through full hook-up. Big concrete pads and long sides. More than enough room for our 35' motorhome and out toad. Sites are level and utilities are an easy connection. There is no office on site. There is a campground host. Call ahead for a reservation, they will assign you a site and you just drive to it and park. Be sure and follow the directions on this site, and not the brown signs on the base, or you will end up pointed the wrong way. Bathhouse facilities are small but clean. Only on shower each. Nice well equipped laundry site. Plenty of nice place to walk your pet. Even a paved jogging trail through the forrest right near by. We had good reception of all the local major TV stations and good satellite reception. Verizon connected fine. Wifi signal is week but connectable. You have to get information about the WiFi up in the Laundry building. If you are coming to the area, or want an nice short term, this is a great place. Clean, safe, big sites. As we were arriving at Gate 9, they flagged us over to the far right and a wide width gate entrance. It was closed, but they opened it for us. Stayed here in our motorhome.

This is a great stopping place and the campground is wonderful.  One mishap, however:  we came in thru gate 9 just after 5:00 p.m. And only the left two gates were open.  They are barely wide enough to get thru with an 8 ft wide travel trailer, and the top of my trailer hit an overhead outdoor light about 9 ft high sticking way out into the lane.  I think the gate guard should step out and volunteer to open a right hand gate (wider) when they see a full size travel trailer approaching for entry.  Another camper told me it's a chronic problem and that another person had their awning torn off trying to enter the same gate.  I now have a nice long scratch in the gel coat of my new Keystone Cougar!  Otherwise, we'll be back but next time I will pull in front of the right most gate and wait for someone to open it.

Stayed on site #4 for 5 nights.  Site was wide, long and level.  Water pressure was very good.  Access to the campground was easy and directions found here are accurate.  There is no cable for short term stays.  Facilities are clean and well maintained.  Enclosed dog run is a nice benefit particularly for dogs who like to explore off the leash but must use them at most campgrounds.  Camp host was friendly and helpful.  Never met or interacted with any of the MWR staff.  Commissary and Exchange are a short walk away and sufficiently stocked to meet your needs on the road.  Only negative observation is that there appears to be a lot of long term campers in the park.  Every day we witnessed some of them shuffling their rigs to new sites in the park when their 60 day stay limit was up.

Perfect for our use! Big, level concrete spaces with super easy access. We arrived 10:30 at night and found a late arrival was very easy and uncomplicated. All facilities were very clean and well kept, with the only exception being a few low-lifes who don't pick up after their dogs! We travel with 4 dogs, so not a hater, just don't appreciate others not picking up! Base facilities are very close and the gas station is big rig friendly too. Dog park is a nice addition to give our dogs a little running room! Very quiet and secure with base police driving through periodically.

November 2, 2014... once again the directions have changed. As of today: Take Exit 14 as directions indicate. Once you've passed through Gate 9, travel approximately 1/4 mile until you reach the first stop light. Turn left. Despite the fact that there are no street signs, this actually is Goss Road now! It essentially now turns you back the direction you came from (back -toward- Gate 9) but you are now on the base and paralleling the road you entered on. It will eventually make a long sweeping right curve and you'll now see signs indicating you are on Goss Road and it becomes two lanes. Follow Goss Road 1.5 miles. You'll see an "RV Campground" sign on your right just before Jupiter St. Turn right onto Jupiter St. and follow it on into the campground. The information re the shoppette if you go too far is still correct. Per the folks at MWR, plans are in the works to revise the Gate 9 access, so this may very well change again in the future.

Changes at Gate 9 make it easier to get to campground (see Note below). We stayed in space 15 directly across from laundry and bath house. Made our reservations via phone and just pulled in. They have name/dates of your stay and your receipt in a Lucite letterbox on your site. Couldn't have been easier. This is a well kept facility. Pads level and large. We did not use bath house but did do laundry and everything was clean and convenient. We found the information about Wi-Fi access in the laundry building. They apparently change access codes frequently and it is written on the white board inside of the laundry room. Flyers are also available to help you get on the first time -- you will then set up a courtesy account via MWR Lodging. There is no longer cable available for short term stays. Those staying longer have to make arrangements with local provider. Information can be found on the information boards at bath house. We didn't really see anyone our entire stay, but it rained almost continuously and part of the time was a weekend. However, we did get a note on our door while we were gone one day, letting us know that weather alerts had been issued and that the bathhouse was the emergency shelter. We would definitely return and would highly recommend this campground to others for convenience, cleanliness, and accessibility to local area. NOTE: One slight change in directions. When you enter Gate 9, they have put in new roads and you no longer have to make the U-turn noted in directions above. You go to the first red light and turn left onto Goss Road and follow that until you see the campground sign. If you get to the Express (Shoppette) you have gone to far, BUT you can turn right at the shoppette, turn right again on Jupiter (Commissary and PX would be left turn), and follow Jupiter as per directions above.

All sites are near perfect, long, wide and concrete, pull thru, but NO shade. It's HOT in AL in summer. Each site rises just a little from rear to front. Even the hookups are in concrete next to the parking pad, no dirty lines to put in the unit when moving on. Not BBQ, yes picnic table. I had no contact with anyone about our stay, I had a pre-paid reservation. There is a camp host but I never saw him/her. The bath house is clean but small, 2 toilets, 1 shower. The laundry is clean and only $1 to wash or dry. The walking/biking trail is about 100 yards southwest. The PX and commissary less than 1 mile east. The directions are right on, easy access, no need to scout for problems.

Great FamCamp. Stayed here 3 nights. Very large concrete pads, great laundry facilities. Very close to PX and Exchange. Car wash was great also. Watch diesel prices in town. Range from $3.74 to $3.62 per gallon. Gas Buddy helped a lot. Will stop here again if we are ever in the area.

Stopped by to check the RV Park out. It was a cool and cloudy Fall day. There were still about 6 - 9 RV sits available. This is an RV Park we wouldn't mind coming back to and staying at for a month or so. Glad to see the have the proper stay limits posted. We didn't notice any homesteading abuse.

If you are looking for a quiet place, you've found it. There was very little noise and the campground has almost no traffic. Sites are long and concrete, electricity is great, cable is clear and Wi-Fi was very strong. You are close to gates and Huntsville has lots to offer. Be sure to check out the small historic area downtown in their Constitution Village. Many of the buildings remind you of Williamsburg. Remember to call ahead for your campground reservation.

You just have to love the Huntsville, AL area. They are respectful of all veterans, and the space program. There are literally hundreds of things to do in the area. Plenty of eating establishments, plenty of parks and nice golf courses in the area. The 36 holes on Post are fine and fun to play, though a little expensive to play at $37 for a green fee and cart. The commissary and BX are great. Having to stop at the shoppette to buy ice after leaving the commissary is a bit of a pain but it's not far. I did find propane at Costco... $10 for a 30 lb bottle. Cheap... I will be back....

We overnighted in Redstone. I called (Jordan?) to make reservations, was charged and was given our site number right over the phone. How sweet that was. We followed the directions given, drove slow through the campground and went right to our site. The concrete slab was the biggest I've ever seen. Since we needed a few things for the galley, we walked a short two blocks to the commissary and back. This FamCamp was just what we needed for an overnight stay. Thank you Redstone MWR.

Do Not Follow GPS to Gate...went to a closed gate and wound up backing a 30' RV much further than I cared. After a lot of roaming around locating an open gate and eventually the RV Park the rest was great. Given site 3 for two nights. As others have already mentioned, sites are huge and level, concrete. All inner roads are gravel. Acceptable WiFi. On Air TV reception is good, several channels. BX/Commissary within walking distance. A very good walking (paved) trail behind the campground with miles of walking or biking trail. Excellent bath facilities, very clean and warm, which was very nice since the morning temps were in the 20s. Laundry ($1.00 per load) in same building. Close to Huntsville business activities, auto dealership, WalMart, etc...Enjoyed our stay.

Retired Navy couple, we stayed at the Redstone Arsenal for a few days although was quite chilly, super nice level pads, full hook-up, super clean restrooms and showers. Close to Exchange and Comissary overall can't complain and will go back again. We entered through gate 8 easy and close.

These sites are great. Large enough for my truck and travel trailer to stay connected and not be in the way. We stayed for two nights in Oct 2012. The place was quiet and facilites were really clean. Will stay here again. Close to the base gas station and PX. Hope all the others are in as great shape.

As I read the previous reviews, I would liked to have known the orientation of the RV spots to keep the afternoon sun out of the windshield in the motor home. We were assigned a great spot that points a bit right of north - about 030 degrees. As such we only get the morning sun in the windshield at an oblique angle and we are able to enjoy complete shade from the coach in the afternoon. Sites 1-6, 14-21 and 29-34 similarly point NNE. The remaining spots point NW so if yours is a motor home, you will have the afternoon sun in the windshield. The folks at the MWR are most hospitable. When I made my reservation they told me there would be no need to go to the MWR office as they would place our name and receipt in the locator box at the site - we could proceed directly to our assigned site. The previous reviews remain current. A nice campground with lots of interesting things to see and do in this beautiful area.

We will definitely stay here again! HUGE level concrete pads, 50 amp service, cable, free wifi - who can beat that for $20 a night? We didn't use the laundry or shower facilities but they look fairly new from the outside. Fenced in dog walk area - we don't have pets so I don't know the condition. Very convenient to the commissary and PX and to Huntsville itself. Almost all sites are pull-throughs except for one row. The only drawbacks we found: No shade to speak of and the row of sites that are not pull-throughs has the electric post placed at the beginning of the site making it very hard to plug-in. We had to pull our 41 ft 5th wheel way up (leaving a ton of empty space at the back of the site) in order to plug-in.
