To get to Uchee Campground you go thru the base and it is located approximately 10 miles away from the base in the woods. It is very hard to get someone on the phone to make reservations. I would suggest calling during the day. You can either tent, camp with your own camper, or rent the cabins.
The camping areas have nice accomidations with water, electricity, tarred parking areas, picnic tables, fire rings and a campground type grill. there is showers and public bathrooms. The grass is mowed nicely around the camping areas. all of the camping areas arae in the woods. It is very peacefull.
this campground would be very nice for a family there is baseball areas, a swimming pool. and areas for lots of sporting things to do. If you have small children you would want to supervise them as the pool doesn't have a lifeguard on duty. The campground is very clean.
There are many things that can be rented at the general store boats motors, for fishing on the river on the campground. They rent bikes and many other things The river is a slow moving stream. Be sure and take lifejackets and wear them as there was a drowning on that river because a dam leavy was opened up. This campground would be nice for a family day for a soilder on leave for a few days, to spend quality time with his family. The campgrounds have plenty of space between the units so you can have privacy.
I stayed in a cabin. the cabins are very nice. They have a main room that includes a kitchen, a table, chairs, a television, VCR, a bunkbed and a rocking chair. The floor is laminated throughout th cabin. So it is easy to keep clean and sanitary. It was very beautiful flooring. The bathroom was equipped with a shower and all new fixtures. sanitary and clean. The bedroom had a full bed and night stand. with a door.
The kitchen is designed in a corner. It works very well for most cooking, the Stove and refrigerator are apartment sized, but they are new and clean. The kitchen is designed for one or two workers if you use the kitchen table as a preperation area.the porch has a very large deck with a large picnic table that will seat 6 comfortably, and you could use the chairs and table to make room for 4 more. There is a small overhang on the porch with a loveseat sized swing. Included in the kitchen are cooking utensils. we had a set of three pans and one skillet. In our cabin there was a set of four dishes and utensils. Be sure and bring foil, and things you might need for storage of food products. there are some bowls for cooking but not many. Also be sure and bring steak knifes, and any cutting tools you might need. We did not have a toaster in out unit. An electric coffee pot is included with some filters. If you are busy at the base with graduations and things, a crockpot would be nice to cook for some of those "homecooked" meals your soldier might like.
There will be bedding for the beds and towels etc. you will have to make your own bed and bring the laundry in for exchange. At the end of your stay you will have a list of things that you need to do to check out.
It is easier to check in before 1800 hrs (6:00 PM). There is a security gate to get to the campground. All units seemed to have air conditioning, our unit had central air. There is a phone, TV with cable, and a VCR. in the cabin. The employees at the general store are pleasant and imformative. If you like birds be sure and bring your birding stuff.
If you are a city person this experience might not be for you because it is a natural habitate. If you have lots of activities you might be too tired to want to do the housekeeping. A motel might be better for some people. I would rate this a 5 star campground. A discount is give for our Men in the Armed Forces based on rank.
