The sites are spacious and the park is very quiet which was a pleasant surprise because it is close to the highway. The RV park is next to the space center and is very centrally located to visit Huntsville as well. The park has many trees and the back-in sites especially on the back of the park have quite a bit of privacy. They only offer 30Amp and the wi-fi seemed to drop now and then, but at $20 per night this campground is an excellent value for full hook-up. It is also right in Huntsville and next to the space center. Since the space camp kids shoot their rockets from the adjoining field there is quite a bit of toy rocket debris on that side of the campground. If you are concerned about that falling on your RV consider a site on the other side of the campground further away from the field. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be back when we are in the area in the future. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the Thursday evening biergarten in the Saturn V hall starting at 5PM. Excellent German food !

This campground is conveniently located next to the Space and Rocket Center. It is an older campground, but the sites are large......some shaded, some not. There is 30 amp electrical service there, and we had an issue with the voltage dropping so low, our surge protector would shut down power to the coach. This happened several times a day, so we ended up leaving early, and found another nearby campground. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 4 nights. It is within walking distance to the Space place. I also explored around the town. The park was absolutely awesome to me. I was tucked away in the corner, so I didn't get WiFi, but I was out of the way which I liked. One day the space camp kids were setting off their model rockets at the front of the campground. That was fun to watch them cheering. The camp host was very nice, and helpful. Talked to him for quite a bit. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are a beer drinker, make it to Straight To Ale brewery. Great little place to sample some locally brewed beer.

RV park next door to the Space and Rocket Center. Small (27 sites) campground with some homesteaders. Sites are gravel, partially to fully shaded and have water, sewer, 30/50 amp electric. A picnic table and charcoal grill are available at each site. Free Wi-Fi is some of the best I've had at a campground. Bathhouse is very shabby but clean. They advertise a laundry but I didn't see it. No cable, but we could get a few stations with antenna. Fairly quiet for being close to a highway. Not sure if they take reservations, but we had called prior to our arrival. Camp host very accommodating - he only had one night open but called us back when someone left. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rustic campground is the best way to describe this park. Sites are good sized with a semi-level paved pad to park on. Hookups are old but functional with 30 amp electric only. Tent sites are mixed in with the RV sites. Wi-Fi works OK but is slow. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

U.S. Space & Rocket Center is only 1/4 mile away.

We loved the place but then we are geeks. As other reviewers have pointed out, the park is indeed full of tiny toy rocket debris but otherwise it is clean and neat. We stayed here two nights and took in the museum nearby for a wonderful full day. Our site was a pull through, neat, clean and level though some looked a bit rough. Water, sewer electric worked perfectly. Speed wise, the WIFI was top notch; although, we were close to the office so it might not be further out. It's very relaxed this time of year. Folks coming and going and the fellow at the office was charming and full of stories and tips on things to see and do at the museum. My husband says he's one of the attractions. Easy on easy off the main highway. Even though it is late in the year, the park was almost full so I recommend reservations. For $20 it was a really great deal and we'll absolutely be back. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

27 shady, roomy but not quite level camp sites in the woods. Everything is looking a bit worn, but functional. An easy walk to Space Camp or the museum. Very peaceful at night. Afternoons may be filled with "3-2-1" countdowns and the whoosh of model rockets from the adjacent launch site. The reviewers who complain about the wayward model rocket parts that litter the trees, bushes, and grounds just don't understand this place. It's a nerd Nirvana, folks. Go with it. The rate is a screaming bargain for full hookups. Where else can you camp within sight of a 360+ foot tall moon rocket? We don't care for the handful of shoddy long-term tenant rigs, but they manage not to ruin the charm of the place. We'll be back. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is right next to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. We were very impressed with the space between the sites and how clean and pretty it was. During the late afternoon, my kids enjoyed watching the space camp children shoot off rockets on the nearby lawn. There is a washer and dryer available, but only one of each that has to be used during the campground's office hours. Our awning was out during our stay and is now permanently stained because of some substance falling from the trees during September. Just an FYI. We would definitely stay here again.

The price can't be beat to be a few minutes from the Space Center. We were in pull-through #12, which was long, black top, and level. Some of the sites had holes in (#8 and 10). It's a typical campground with mature trees and a few full time residents. Nice site manager. Grandkids had fun finding all the rocket parts that were left from Space Camp. You can go through the Space Center in one day. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay in if you are going to visit the Space Center. Very good staff. Friendly, and helpful. The only negative was the amount of trash spread throughout the park. Just outside the park kids at Space Camp launch small rockets with parachutes. With prevailing winds they all land inside the park, and no one picks these items up. There was also a small amount of regular trash in the camping area through out the park. The roads did have some potholes that need repair.

I loved this park, right next to the space center. If the weather would have been nice we could have walked over, even though it would be a LONG walk. The older gentleman that checked us in was very personable, friendly and had cute stories to tell us. Had no qualms of leaving our motorhome unattended as a ranger drove through the park constantly. There were a few long term people, but the spots were kept up and tidy. Each spot we saw was spacious, not squeezed together side by side like a lot of parks we've been to. There was a lot of grass and trees. I would have given it a 10 except for some of the paved areas for parking were chewed up. Maybe tree roots or large RVs chewed up the asphalt, not sure, but with our 35' motorhome it was no problem maneuvering around the bump. There were only 3 or 4 spots that had that problem. We stayed 3 nights while we explored the space & rocket center and other things. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are very uneven, our pull-through site had a huge bump and several pot holes in the middle of it. The WiFi worked well but was censored. Overall a disappointment but if you are just staying overnight it would meet your needs. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here as we brought students down to Space Camp for the week. The manager is very nice and helpful. Sites were good, but its a little older park. RVs only. Close enough to check in on the kids. Showers were good. Convenient to interstate. new Wi-Fi is very fast. A number of sites are for long term RVers. They had openings every day we were there. Definitely stay here again. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.
