I was in the tent camping area. There were 3 employees working at the Marina. When I got to my campsite the trash cans on all sites were full and trash scattered by raccoons. I stayed 3 nights and not once did anyone come empty the trash cans. No toilet paper in bathrooms. Found that out the hard way. There is so much work to do there. If there are 3 employees only 1 should be at the Marina, especially since all they sell is ice. The others need to be cleaning up the campsites and bathrooms. Great place on the lake. Very beautiful. But it is being so neglected. We camped at Lake Martin Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Tent.

I read all the bad reviews. Thought it couldn't be that bad. It is. This campground seems to be a neglected step child among the mostly decent military campgrounds that I have been to. Our pad and the other TT accompying us had to be elevated 5 inches just to be close to level. Our two pads were dirt only. The picnic tables were on ground so unlevel a coffee cup slid off. Our pad required a 100' back-in, downhill, on dirt and pine straw, with a 90 degree turn at the bottom. Next to it is was an array of three TTs sitting at all different angles in a hillside with so much stuff scattered about it looked like a yard sale. If you come here avoid sites 41, 42, 51 and possibly others. Better yet go across the lake to the State Park. We wanted to do that but waited too late for Memorial weekend reservations. Now we know why this place was available. We camped at Lake Martin Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

The location of this park on Lake Martin is great, but park amenities are in extreme disrepair. Our site was water/electric only right on the lake with its own dock and good tree coverage. But the site was so unlevel that even with leveling jacks it took over an hour to level it. The entire campground is ant infested so bring at least 2-3 cans of ant killer because they will get in and on your RV. The bathrooms are full of spiderwebs, ants, and black mold. Only one of the two showers in the men's and women's bathrooms worked and the sink in the women's bathroom actually fell out of the wall. When I tried to use the dumping station, it was full of ants and over flowing with sewage. For the kids there is a small beach and a new playground. Boats are also available for rent. We camped at Lake Martin Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Nice family park for DoD employees and guests. Sites not level and many need updating. Employees very helpful and friendly. Lots to do on lake (fishing and boating). A good value. We camped at Lake Martin Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
