This is a typical military campground with a number of semi-permanent residents who apparently have business on the base. Although it is an Air Force base, airplane noise is not a problem. The park and facilities are clean and well maintained and the hosts are friendly and helpful. The only thing we wished for was a dog park but there is a lot of open spaces for dogs to run. Just have to be on a leash. Sites are concrete pads closer together than usual on a military rv park, but not a problem for us. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Montgomery has a number of good places to eat. If you like good old fashioned Southern cooking, try Martin's on Carter Hill Rd.

Quiet hours at this park are from 10pm-7am. It is now after 11pm and one of my nearby neighbors (a homesteader) has been blasting his stereo inside his motorhome for the past 3 hours. I don't know how the people in the RVs next to him stand it. We're here overnight and our stay cannot end soon enough for me. I hope to get at least a decent night's sleep. No one is around to enforce quiet hours and it's apparent the permanent residents here know that and take advantage of it.

We made reservations yesterday and were assigned a site, #52. When we pulled up to the site, someone was already parked there. They were overnighting too and hoping we would be a no-show. They left and found a different site. As we were hooking up our utilities, we noticed the resident in site #51 next to us had strapped his satellite receiver to the top of the grill on our site. We asked him to remove it and he asked if we were using the grill right then. We insisted he remove it and he came out 15 mins later and grudgingly did it.

The park is full of homesteading residents with all their stuff spread out around their rigs and spilling over to the empty sites (like the satellite receiver I mentioned earlier). There's a definite trailer park feel to this place. Many sites are so close together, you can hear your neighbor yawning (as we did).

The cement pads are nice - long and level. Hookups are in the middle. Water pressure is in the red zone so use pressure regulator. WiFi is non-existent and there's no cable. There's trains passing nearby. And neighbors who play loud music late into the night. I can't wait to leave and never return to this trailer park. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a night passing through. We were placed in the newer section of the park at a nice long pull thru with cement pad. The park is very nice and seems to be kept up. However there are quite a few long term residents that have lots of stuff around their sites that to me makes it feel like a trailer park. Site was level, close to neighbors but not on top of each other. No cable, but plenty of over the air channels. WiFi was pretty much useless. They recommend using a water pressure valve, which we did along with our filter and pressure was still good. A very nice park that we would like to see in the summer with all of the available gear rentals by the lake. Only heard one plane during our stay so can't complain about the noise. However we did hear quite a few trains during our short stay. Laundry was 75 cents per wash and dry cycle. We would definitely return.

Overnighted here in route to Orlando. Lots of long term campers attending the Air War College and other courses on post, gave it that homey military feel. Showers are newer shower trailers you would encounter on a deployment, but very well maintained. Two large playgrounds nearby for kids. Con - mosquitoes off of the pond and soccer fields across the road will probably draw in crowds on game days, i.e. Saturday mornings. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

We camped three days and enjoyed every minute. This is a clean and well-maintained camp. Twenty local television stations. Very strong WiFi. Super nice laundry. Friendly staff. Campsites are level and full hookups are convenient. Beautiful lake and trails. Verizon service was excellent. Only negative is there is a paper mill several miles away and if the winds are strong there is a slight unpleasant odor at times. Also, there may be military aircraft in the area. But, for military folks this is the sound of freedom. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Enter via the Kelly Gate and immediately turn left. This takes you directly to the camp.

Nice and clean facilities! Washers and Dryers very reasonable--$1.50 wash&dry per load. Cement, level sites. Site Manager polite and friendly. Will stay here again. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights passing through from Nashville to Pensacola and it was a good stay. The camp was easy to get to and a perfect stopping point. We liked the covered patio area and the private shower areas. Plenty of space to walk the dogs and the camp host was welcoming. We will stay here again.

Most pads with trees are taken by long-term residents. If you are here for short-term, be prepared to stay in the open spaces and expect a long walk to bathhouse. Make sure your pad has power before completely setting-up. I ended up trying six different sites before I found one with electricity. Self registration can be difficult. The available site list posted on door was 3 days old. Overall, a good value for $20. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stay here when visiting family and this is the first time we stayed in the new part of the park - much closer together and tight - if we were to sit at our picnic table we would have been under our neighbor's kitchen slide-out. Level stands and cement, but the oddest set up for the roads in the new portion of the park to access. We'll definitely stay here again and easy access to all the base's facilities.

Great camp site for military personnel, with access to all on-base support activities. The city of Montgomery is easily accessable for the FamCamp with plenty of year around activities. The facility is currently undergoing expansion and should be able to accommodate any size RV with complete hook-ups.

We stayed here on our way to Biloxi and then on our way home. Great sites with Wi-Fi. Really great shower house: separate bathrooms with shower. The laundry room was spotless! We will visit here again. Our next stay will be longer so we can visit the Montgomery area. There is no cable TV available but we were able to pick up a number of stations over the air.

Military ID card required for stay and access on the base. Nice, out of the way location near the back side of the base near a lake with boat access. Well maintained and new sites were being added to the park while we were there. Nice large pull through and back in spaces. We have stayed here twice and will continue to do so whenever coming through this way. Nice facilities on the base as well.

Nice park. The staff already had left for the holidays, so everyone was pretty much on their own. The only complaint is the sites are not level. We needed to block up the front wheels and the back was squatted as far as it would go. The couple next to us ended up backing their rear wheels off of the pad and into the divot where the gravel meets the concrete. It's not often it is a good thing that there was a big pothole leading up to the pad! They are building several more sites, all obviously just as un-level as the one we were in. Other than that, it was very nice. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
