The movie theaters are closed. The kid activity spaces are closed. No bus tours. The gift shop barely has anything in it. Half the exhibits are closed. The restaurant has two cash registers for hundreds of ppl. You HAVE to wear a mask. Even outdoors. If you have a disability … get an exemption card from your doctor. If you can’t afford who, just buy a drink or food and carry it around. They won’t call you out for who, but God forbid you walk around without a diaper over your nose … they will call security on you. BTW, most of their gift shop products are made in China.

.2miles from the Space and Rocket Center. Wooded area with paved pad for parking. Hookups at each site under the name of well as charcoal grill and picnic table. Trash dumpster is at the exit. Mosquitoes were beginning to visit so I would recommend a preventative.

My family and I reserved two spots, #16 and #17. It seemed that all the water drained to those spots! Very soggy, muddy, and puddles of water everywhere (see pictures) was not pleasant. Water filled the water connections no matter how much we took out with a cup. It just filled right back up! Wood bees nested in our picnic tables and buzzed around us so much that we couldn’t eat at the picnic tables provided. No wood-burning fires/fire pits! Bathrooms were clean. We saw some of the weekend space camp trainees shoot off their rockets around 4pm Saturday in the field next to the campsites. No playground or any other activities. If you arrive after hours (4pm), you go straight to your site. Being close in proximity to the space center was the only plus. We paid $30 a night.

We were very disappointed who all the interactive exhibits were closed, such as the kid zone and G force. I understand with covid things are different but I feel like this should have been stated up front or on the web site. However they didnt mind still charging the $25 per adult and $17 per child. Its a shame but this probably wont be a do over for us…

Do yourself a favor, pay $10 more and go to the beautiful Monte Sano campground 10 minutes away. We booked our stay with Jessica in April. Somehow they lost our reservations. When we arrived on a Sunday, there was no one there to check in with. Just a note on the Door saying that the campground was full, and a listing of a few reserved spots and what sites they were suppose to be at. Our name was not on the list. No one answered the phones, I finally called security, and they said they would get back with me once they contacted the manager. They never called me back! Was very upsetting! The manager never called me back either. So I was stuck trying to figure out what to do. Finally was able to secure a site with Monte Sano campground just up the road. Very glad we did, because this place was way prettier and much better. …
