We stayed here for 2 months. It's a private property campground that is being shared with Mobile home leasing and more seemed to come in every week. The 'lake' or swamp more like it, is only accessible from one side. Rigs on the other side have to drive around to access the lake but are still charged the same price. The owners are mean and rude and change the rules according to whatever mood they are in. They have a list of strict rules a mile long that they force you to sign when you register and they can put you out of the park for 'no reason at all' with no refund. The website says $395 a month but a few of us were being charged $475 incl utilities, only to be told we couldn't use our washers and dryers and at the end of our first month we were told we were 'using too much electricity' and could we use our gas oven instead of our microwave convection. We didn't catch a single fish in the 2 months we were there. The sites are awkwardly designed and dusty and it really is very, very boring there. One little bathhouse which contains a unisex shower and toilet is the only amenity. You have to dispose of your own trash (take it to the recycling centre yourself as there are no dumpsters here). It's overpriced and hot, hot, hot during the summer months. Very little breeze. We had to wait 6 days for a propane gas delivery. There are other much nicer and friendlier parks than this one if you're coming to Conway or if you don't want to stay at the cramped campgrounds down at Myrtle Beach. We camped at Big Cypress Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I can't say enough good things about this campground. We live full time in our camper and stayed here 8 months and even then I didn't want to leave. The river, the wildlife, the trails, the cabins...everything was just perfect. If you qualify, you can do all your shopping on the base including going to the movies and bowling, gym etc. The staff are incredible, the facilities outstanding, the whole campground is comfortable and the lots are well thought out and paved. I loved the fact that they had a telephone connection at every site. You can also rent campers there if you don't have one. They always let you know if there is an activity or function that you can attend and keep you well informed. It's a fabulous place for kids with lots of playgrounds and amenities. I hope we get another chance to stay here again. We camped at Uchee Creek Campground/Marina (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here for quite a few months and did not like the owners. I have seen their profile on their website and they are not as friendly as they view themselves. They overbooked the campground into the overflow area with no amenities several times just to squeeze every $ they could out of people. The train runs right on the perimeter of the campground and toots and honks everytime it comes through which is all night and day. The pool is very small and under trees, so it was always cold, even in the hot months. Sites are very close together. I wouldn't stay here again...not if I want to get any sleep! We camped at Springfield / Route 66 KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 8 months and it was the most enjoyable time I've ever spent anywhere. The campground is off the main base of Fort Benning (about 22 miles from Columbus) and is a garden of Eden with plenty of wild deer roaming around that you can feed. The staff and amenities are first class. The sites are very large with plenty of space in between. There are also plenty of log cabins and they have a lot of planned events and organised picnics. The river runs through it and you can rent a variety of boats for fishing or bass tournaments. You can stay here if you are active military, retired military or DOD contractor. If you qualify to stay here, you can shop, bowl, go to the movies or use any of the base facilities. Highly recommended!!!
