What is the difference between camping and glamping?

Glamping is a form of traditional camping where a person still enjoys an overnight stay outdoors in nature but it involves accommodations and facilities more luxurious than traditional camping.

With Family and MWR’s Outdoor Recreation camping rental program, Team Redstone can customize their camping wants and needs.

“Outdoor Recreation has several different sizes of campers depending on how many are in your family,” Outdoor Rec Manager Tom Pyburn said. “We offer 16-foot options that will sleep two to three folks and larger campers that will accommodate five to six folks. The campers have heat and AC, bathrooms and shower, kitchen with refrigerator and freezer.”

The campers can be rented for $90 per day or $540 per week.

As for a location for your camping excursion, Redstone is home to an RV park located by the Commissary and a rustic campground at the Easter Posey recreation area.

“The RV park is fully equipped for the full time RV’er,” Pyburn said. “The spacious pads are 65x24 feet with 30 and 50-amp hookups, wifi, two bathhouses and laundry facility, dog park and large gathering pavilion.”

The cost for the RV park is $25 per night or $150 per week. 

The Easter Posey campground has electric and water, with a dump station nearby, for a rental cost of $12 per night or $77 per week. 

“There are numerous recreational facilities and quality of life programs offered at Redstone Arsenal for the military, including Guard and reservists, federal/DOD/DA civilian employees, Marshall Space Flight Center employees, those with Redstone Arsenal and MSFC contracts, as well as their family members,” Pyburn said. “One of the great benefits of working at Redstone Arsenal, or working for a company doing business with the Arsenal, is that you are granted access to Family and MWR services and facilities.”

Outdoor Rec will take reservations 90 days in advance and can schedule up to eight weeks. For more information, call Outdoor Rec at 876-4868.
