This really is a trailer lot and not a camping site. This was one of the worst experiences my wife and I have had in more than 4 years of camping. It was our third trip to Ft. Eustis. We had to share hook-ups with a camper who was "pigging" off our site. Therefore, I couldn't seal the sewer which resulted in a terrible odor and thousands of flies. The person who was "pigging" got drunk and came pounding on my door and other camper's doors at 11:00PM. He just wanted to talk. Finally got the sewer fixed. The site is in very poor shape. Most sites filled by very long-term RVs. The command at Fort Eustis has to step in and correct this situation. I got a $60 refund, but my trip was ruined. Make this a true camping site or make it a long-term trailer lot.
Second time and last time staying here. Nothing has changed, Noisy... not kept up..... Had to share all hook ups with neighbor..their water line running past front of our unit. Sewer line running along the back side of unit. Staff friendly and helpful but not their fault. If you are an RV'er this is NOT the place. Taking the kids camping it's o.k. Plain to see that no money in the past has gone into this place to make any improvements. Heavily wooded so no satellite coverage, no cable hook up, antenna reception poor. Would like to occasionally watch news or favorite program in evening. Not a chance.
(We ended up not staying at this campground) As fulltime Retired DOD we thought this would be a nice campground to try. But when we called to set up our reservation the lady on duty took all of my information including our arrival & departure times...then asked for my Social Security Number. What??? We've been RVing all over the US and CAN, including military campgrounds and no one has ever requested my SSN. I refused (as everyone should - since even law enforcement says not to give out your SSN to "just anyone") and she said she couldn't take our reservation. I called the MWR Director who told me they are using a civilian software that requires that they input all SSN's and that he had run it past the Jag Officer - they said it was "ok". Well it isn't ok for us and we elected to stay at a different military campground...this one is now off our radar for good! So we feel the over all experience, deserved a 1 star.
The Campground is not professionally ran, they allow people to stay as long as they want, it should be called a trailer park instead of a family campground, some have been there for 2-3 years, of the 9 sites only 1 is available for using all the others are Home Steading. The Hookups are backwards and they don't have a separate dump station if you Dry Camp, Oh yeah they have people hogging those areas as well, Management has failed this campground. The club there is closed now, and the PX, commissary, USO, Gyms are very close by. The rule of thumb there is if you know me I'll take care of you and you can stay as long as you want
