  • I grew up in the neighborhood behind Grandpa's (a hardware store). I don't know if it has a specific name for that area, but it was a decent, family friendly neighborhood. Older houses there of course and lots of trees so it stays pretty shady.

    I'm not much help though, because it's been 10 years since I lived there and there is so much I've forgotten. So just consider this a bump. :)

  • i am currently stationed at fort campbell, fell free to message me.
    i have lived both on post and off post. there are pros and cons to both. however i love the convience of living on post.but the tile floors really bug me. i live in a 3 bedroom right now. the wait list varies depending on how many bedroms you need. now that everyone deployed tho (including DH) the wait list is shorter. when you get here you can go up to the houseing office and there there is a part of the office that specifically helps you find a place off post. jsut dont go to belew rentals. they will rip you off and there apartments suck. as for what is there to do around here, ummm idk i dont much leave my house or off post unless its to go to the mall or target ive got 3 kids now and im all alone so yeah. : )

  • Now Ft. Campbell borders two states. My best friend lives on the TN side of the Ft. Clarksville is a really nice town. It's a quiet town, in the country.
