Recommendations of Military RV Sites

12 posts in this topic

I'm just starting my "RV ADVENTURE" and, as a U.S. military retiree, I'm hoping for some GREAT visits to U.S. military bases.

In the near-term "honey-bunch" (AKA "She who MUST be obeyed!") & I will probably stick near the Eastern seaboard - well, east of the Mississippi, anyways - and I'm looking for some recommendations of "top-notch" military RV parks to visit in that area.

Appreciate any suggestions - please include comment as to WHY you like a particular facility.

THANKS!!!

Mable, THANKS: yes, I've viewed that website quite a bit. I'm just looking for some recommendations from folks who've had some "first-hand" experiences.

If you are into Military History, Fort Pulaski is between Savannah and Tyby Island, GA: http://www.nps.gov/fopu/index.htm

Also there is a Naval Garrison at Tyby, also verry interesting.

Been to both and was some great history there.

We did Ft. Gordon this year. It's off post a ways but nice with BIG lake. And cheap.

The RV Park at Ft. Benning is really nice. At present time there is some upgrades being done but still a nice park.

Just spent 10 days at Mayport Naval Base campground - Pelican Roost in Jacksonville, FL. The base has two campgrounds, the other one is Osprey Cove. We loved Pelican Roost - it is on the St Johns River that feeds into the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit at your campsite and watch the ships go by - we saw a cruise ship, tankers, and Navy ships. Beautiful place and we are definitely going back!

Pelican Roost is a limited stay campground - only two weeks; Osprey Cove is for long term. I personally like that Pelican Roost is short-term stay - it allows more people to enjoy this beautiful campground. The staff is very helpful, as is the camp host.

Paris Island, SC; Mayport, FL; Kings Bay, GA; Pensacola FL; Charleston, SC; Ft Meade, MD; Hanscom AFB, MA; Williamsburg, VA; Cherry Point, NC. We have stayed at all of them and they were all good. I may have missed a few, but read the reviews in the Military Campgrouns revew web site. Pretty much on the spot with the reveiws.

Lunga park may still be closed because of UXO. (Unexploded Ordanance) but if it is open it is a good park also.

Have been in overflow at NAS in Key West this past two weeks. They are packed but doing best to accommodate anyone who shows up. Cheap fuel has many MH on the road to the Keys this year.

We stayed at the Blue Angels Recreation Area in Pensacola and it was great. Hey, for $20 what is not to like. We are going back down there next week. It's right on the water, the NAS and museum are about 8 miles away and Orange Beach is about 15 miles away (otherwise known as the Hillbilly Riviera). There the full hook-up area (Battleship Row) with nice cement pads for $20 or you can go to Anchors for $17, no pads but electric and water. Last time we stayed in Anchor Cove and liked it. This time we are staying in Battleship Row to see how different they are.
