If your in area of Max Meadows Virginia and need a place to stay for a few days or longer this is a CG that is right of the hwy from 77/81. Our GPS had no problems finding this CG. Good signage. Very noisy area and you can hear the trucks on the HWY 24 hrs a day. Getting in and out of the park is not for the faint of heart, very steep incline both ways. Sites are not level and require wood and jack pads on all most all sites. The park is mostly longer term residents who work in the area. We chose this CG as a jumping off point to hike the many state parks in the area. The owners work hard to keep the park clean. This is not Resort, no laundry facility, pool, or dog park. No concrete pads. The sites are gravel and grass. Needs some TLC. We requested a level site long enough for a 40ft RV. We were placed in a RV site that was only able to handle the RV and not our vehicle. When you opened the door of the coach it was a steep exit. No area to set up. We were unable to level the coach. Asked to be moved the next day. Told they were full and all they could offer us was the the over flow parking area. Got moved, site was longer but it still required wood and jack pads under the tires and jacks. The owner will not invest additional $400 a month to have a garbage picked up twice a week. Garbage was overflowing everywhere . This place is a good stopping point for a day or two. If you need to stay longer for work the price is very good per month. We will not stay again due to the noise level and the huge garbage issue. We camped at Pioneer Village Campground in a Motorhome.
On Saturdays there is a great Farmers Market in Wytheville. Great hiking in the area. This is Amish country and there is a store down the road called the "Dutch Pantry". Has great bulk food and a deli for sandwiches. WallMart, Lowes and fast food is only a 10 min drive.

Robins AFB is a nice base and a good stop over. We made our reservation, by calling the camp directly and spoke with nice man. The rate was $25.00 per night. Our site was some what level. We arrived late and the office was closed. "LATE ARRIVALS, your packet of info in pinned on the bulletin board in a plastic sleeve" I missed seeing the packet, did not see our name on it, until the next day when the Camp host took it off the board. I was looking for a box with late arrival information. There is a commissary, base exchange, golf course, along with a gas station. The camp ground is very, very old and in need of major over haul. There are long term folks here. We had site 18 which the water/sewer are shared by the next rv. (There are a total of 24 sites) The water spigot was so dated, it looked like an 1950 galvanized pipe with a pump handle. We had zero water pressure going into our coach and had to fill up our water tank and turn on the water pump to take showers, flush toilets, do laundry or dishes. The laundry facility only has one washer and one dryer for the entire park. The bath house is old and also in need of updating. We did not use it. The park is pretty and spring has just started. When we are at Mayport Naval AS all we had to do is call the camp host if there was an issue someone would come out right away and see what they could do. The camp host said it could take a month or year to get something fixed. This is unacceptable. The road into the FAM Camp is very narrow and some area dangerous with large pot holes. The email you receive confirming your reservation explains there are tight turns and large slopes where your rv could turn over. This FAM Camp is not big rig friendly. Most of the RV were under the 40" We camped at Robins AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We came down to N. Ft. Myers for a Holiday vacation. It's very esay to get to this place off of I-75, though when making a left turn onto Triplett road with a 40ft RV, the road is only one lane and extremely tight to make that left turn. We arrived on Thanks Giving Day and pulled into the park. We were greeted by a very nice staff member who showed us to our site. This RV park is tucked away under a canopy of oak trees, secluded but you can hear some hwy noise, near the entrance of the RV Park only. The road in the Rv park is very small and has tight turns. We stayed in site #116. If you have a big rig like ours it was tight to back in. On this site there was barley enough room to put out our awing, it almost touched our neighbors coach. The inside sites are much closer together than the outside sites which have much more room. The RV sites are very nice, and you have a clean pad to put out all your gear. There are a lot of full-timers here, and understandable. You are packed in like sardines, but it's really not an issue. The staff here is really nice. Garbage pickup is twice a day & recycling!!! The front office has great information. A member of staff who works here full time, washed and waxed our coach for a fantastic price. So if your coach is in need of a wash and a wax, ask. Awesome person!! If your coach is in need of work while you stay here, the front office has all kinds of business cards to get your problems resolved. This place states it has a new bath house never used it. Also a large laundry room. The workout room smells really bad, like a tire store, rubber smell yuk! Just down the road on 78 about 2.9 miles away on the right hand side of the road across the street from Publix, is the famous bald eagle Harriet and M-13 nest. We got to see first hand of the changing of the guard last night, as one eagle flew out of the nest and the other flew in for the night watch. This place is a little pricey, but good. Places is friendly. We camped at Seminole Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.
Publix is down the road 2.9 miles off of Bayshore. Eat at Blue Dog Bar and Grill. Get your rv washed and waxed by Tommy.
