When using the main gate watch out for low oak tree limbs on Maxwell and Kelly. Our motorhome is 12' 8" and numerous tree limbs scraped our roof. No damage, but nerve-racking. Sites at north end of campground have great shade, but satellite reception looked nonexistent. About half the sites have a covered patio over a cement pad. All sites have cement pad and full hookups. Sites are close together, but deep enough for your RV and vehicle. Interior roads are gravel some are rougher than others. After turning off from Kelly the road going around the flight line is rough, slow down and you'll be fine. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Spent 3 nights. Limited to those associated with military. Enjoyed our stay. Helpful staff. Concrete pad with long enough pull through that we could have stayed hooked up with our 34' fifth wheel if we had wanted. Full hookups. Sites are pretty close together and camp was full. Lots of long term residents attending training on base. Near runway but aircraft noise not an issue due infrequent flights. Occasional train whistles but nothing like USAFA for those who have stayed there. Good camp. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Kelly gate near the RV Park is often closed or limited requiring using the main gate which is Maxwell gate/Maxwell road. For those not familiar with the base it's easy to take Maxwell to the end and turn left on Kelly. Right before exiting the base at Kelly gate (and I mean right before - like a few yards before) take the right that leads across the airfield to the camp. It's a rough road especially on the turns so go slow.

After reading some of the reviews I was a little nervous about staying here. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. This is really a nice campground and extremely affordable. Even though I was in a full sun site, when it appeared that shaded sites were available, it was still nice. All the sites are paved with sewer hook ups and water. The grounds are well taken care of. The laundry room was convenient and pretty clean. There was plenty of room to run my dogs and a dog park. The campground is located on the opposite side of the airfield but rest assured it's not noisy. We only heard the planes once in our 5 day stay. The only thing that's annoying is the train that comes through around 4 or 5 am and blasts their whistle for what seems like forever. Other than that, this was a great campground. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

It's easiest to come through the Kelly gate. You can't make the immediate left to head towards the campground but they do have a turn around to the right for bigger vehicles.

Must be military, active retired ....Was to stay 3 days, ended staying 14. Had air brake problem. Host was very understanding, and extended stay with no problem. Recommended Russel Trucking, which did fix my problem. Road in very rough. Used PX Commissary and class 6 (liquor). Good for a few nights while passing thru. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This was our third stay in a military base. As is typical, it was tucked in the farthest possible corner of the base. However, if you trust the signs, you will find it. GPS is not helpful. Sites were level, power and water were satisfactory. The only negative aspect was the lack of mowing of the dog walking area. I was wet almost to my knees from morning dew and walking the dog. We stayed her due to mechanical difficulties, and would stay here again. We camped at Maxwell-Gunter AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

If you are in the area be sure to go to Martins Restaurant. Great place for good old southern cooking. Food was outstanding and lemon meringue pie was to die for

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 FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

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 FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

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 FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
