    Fort Benning has it's own but you have to be military or have a military sponsor. That would be your best bet. I am wanting to know what the best spot would be for someone without the military sponsor?

    I would think since your son is at Ft Benning that would qualify you to stay at the campgrounds

    Weird I was stationed at fort campbell, ky and to camp or use the cabins there was no need for a sponsor. 90% sure the civilians were the ones that used them most of the time lol

    We have pulled a camper down there the last two years and haven't been asked for a military ID once. Really good experience both times and a great facility. They do have cabins that from what I was told very reasonable rates. Hope this helps. And we were shooting the asa tournament.
    I shoot because I love the feeling of success, although I haven't succeeded yet!!!!!

    If you cannot get a campsite there, there is an Army Corps of Engineers campground about a 10 min drive south of Ft Benning called "Uchee Creek Campground". They have electric and water at each site along with a desgnated seperate dump site for sewage. It is located right on the Chatahoochie River, and charge somewhere around $15/night. The also have restroom/shower buildinga at various locations.

    I too would like to stay on sight but I called the campground office last year and they told me you had to be military to use the campground. But then other people say you don't. I would like to know the truth and who to call for reservations during the shoot.

    I looked back over some notes and uchee creek is who I called and they said I needed to be military. Also, I just looked at last years ASA book and it says in there that you have to have military id.

    I called Uchee Creek yesterday and told them that I was coming in for the ASA shoot and the camp grounds and cabins are available for the public on the 2 ASA weekends. I would suggest hurrying and calling because the cabin are all booked and the campgrounds are filling quick!
