We stayed two nights and this place seems more run down than our previous stay over a year ago. Our site had trash and garbage on it. We had to clean up before we could park. The speed limit on the dirt roads isn't enforced so there's always dust from all the trucks speeding by. You can't leave your windows open even on a nice day with all the dust blowing in. There are deep ruts on the road and on some sites. There appears to be a few homesteaders as well. It doesn't appear to be managed well. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Manager at front desk is rude. DO NOT come before 3 because they will not check you in even though park is 1/2 empty. Lake only open on weekends, the price they charge is ridiculous along with the rules. You basically pay to just stand there in the water. Sites and hookups were good. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

If you follow the directions on the Military Famcamp website, it's easy to find. We called ahead for reservations so check-in was easy. There are only 5 pull-thrus on their map. Roads are sandy. Pull-thru pads are concrete and level surrounded by sand and lots of pine trees. No wifi, no cable. No dog park but plenty of woods to walk them. Office staff was helpful & professional. Hookups were a little far. Nice place for 1-2 nights at $25 for 50 amp, full hookups. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Pleasant surprise. Decent size pull thru sites super clean bathrooms/showers. Very pet friendly. We stayed there 2 nights. A bit of the beaten path and harder to access plus no identified campground hosts present with minimal office hours. We would definitely camp here again.

Smith Lake Road now paved for the 2 miles into the recreation area. Office on the left, not right. Road to RV sites not paved but well packed down. Winding road but plenty of room to negotiate a 43 foot motorhome. Sites on the hill nice, large pull-throughs. Full hookups. Not on the post - just outside about 3 miles. Nothing fancy but okay for a day or two. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

February...a cold, rainy night. The facility looked to be a great place come warmer weather - the lake, zip line, water ski jump, horse stables - all look to be great fun come summer. As mentioned, we were passing through. Our site (5a) was fine except for intermittent 50 amps throughout the night. Brought it up with park staff as we departed. All-in-all, a nice campground.

Nice campground close to Fort Bragg. Huge sites: level concrete, fire pits and picnic tables. Minus is that there is no Wi-Fi, and for lots of the sites you need an extra sewer hose because the hook-ups are on the wrong sides. Hiking and mountain biking trails. We've had a great time with the dogs. Bring mosquito spray!! We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a destination park if you are interested in the lake. Otherwise you are in the middle of nowhere. Not to mention the long drive to the sites on a gravel road. Most sites have heavy shade, a few are satellite friendly. Sites are level. Ants were a huge problem on our site. Management is someone amateurish so be sure to reserve your site and then check back later to confirm. We stayed here for three days before moving downtown to Fairlane Lodge Propertie to be closer to town and the base. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Very nice people who work here. Originally were only staying for 1 night but we ended up having to come earlier than planned and stayed for 4. We had a full hook up on a concrete pad, decent site. Bathhouses were nice, could have been a little cleaner, but well none the less. Each bathroom had a private toilette, sink and shower which was a nice bonus. Also fee ice at the office was an added bonus as well. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

It wasn't very busy so we had no problem parking our 45' rig. We had an easy on and out site, but not sure there were many. Our biggest complaint was that the incoming road and sites were all dirt. After a long dry period it made a mess of our car. Yes, we know we're camping! WiFi ok. Good location near I-95. Would stay again.

Campground was pretty quiet, though there wasn't much shade where we were. Spots along the lake had much more shade, but those spots are very limited, and rather small. We were supposed to have a pull-through space, but it wasn't. There is a lake with a beach, paddle boats, etc. Nearby is a riding stable, boat dock, etc. Smith Lake is open to the public.

A very nice campground. Staff was very helpful. Only complaint that I could have of this campground, and it is a very minor complaint, is that you need a separate fishing license to fish in the lake, and it is not available at the camp office. If they had been able to issue this license, I would have rated this camp a 10. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for the first time a total of 3 weeks. Drove directly from Arizona and have no complaints. The location is perfect for workcamping at Ft. Bragg. Quiet, remote but 5 minutes to Post, friendly staff, with washers and dryers available. Even numbered sites are reserveable, odd are first come first serve. There are limited service sites with water and 30amp electric if W/S/E (50 amp) sites are full. Limited sites have better views of the lake!

I should have read the previous reviews before take the railroad track entrance. I have ripped out my stabilizer jacks. Do make sure you take the Honeycutt road entrance, through the horse stable entrance to the park. Lesson learned. Earlier my wife called to make sure they had room for us for our 36 ft fifth wheel, they said yes. After getting there and ripping off the stabilizer the individual who my wife talked to said they forgot to tell my wife to take the horse stable entrance, a lttle late for that. Other wise the campground was OK. We camped at Smith Lake Army RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our experience with this campground was just OK. We love the price, and the restrooms/showers were clean and well designed. We followed the advice of another reviewer and entered the park off of Honeycutt DR (By the riding stables) and I am glad we did. The RR tracks at the main entrance are very bad and I can see where many stabilizer jacks have been drug off there. We got a pull-thru, and found it to be very dusty with almost no grass. The beach does not open until noon, and they don't allow parking close-by. You have to park up the hill...Army policy... Despite some disappointments, the price and location were right for us.
