Ft Stewart Army Post Review

Your Name (if you would like it to appear): Abby McFadden

Base Name: Fort Stewart

Base Location: Hinesville, GA

How long have you been here? (give years please, ex. 2003-present) July 2009 to present


What is housing like? On-post? (waiting list, conditions, etc.) Off-post? Any areas to stay away from? Average price to rent or buy?

On Post housing is nice and worth it if you qualify for the new housing. I live in the new housing addition but have heard nothing but bad things about the old house. They had a town hall meeting about 2 weeks after we got here and I found out alot about the area and the post. It seemed like the older neighborhoods had more issues even with crime and stuff that you would see off post then the newer neighborhoods.

Rate the PX & Commissary.

The PX is semi big. The one downfall was that they didn’t have even half of what was required for on post school supply list. The commissary has been under construction since we have been here so it is always a mad house. Lets cross our fingers that it is done in November like they said it would be.

Activities on base?

Active Spouses Club?

no not yet

Things to do in area?

On post there is alot. There are several playgrounds, a couple water parks, a couple pools, and a family center that is always having something. Off post you have to drive at least 45 min. unless you just want to go to a movie. The movie theater in Hinesville is okay just a little small.

School System?

On post great off post not so much.

Any colleges in area?

There alot of options for college it just depends on what you want to do and if you want a campus of online.

Jobs? (on post and off)

I don’t know. I don’t work.

Favorite aspect of this base/surrounding city?

My favorite thing of the base has to be the amount of things to do just on base. As far as the surrounding city, unfortunately, I would have to say Wal-Mart.

Least favorite aspect?

My least favorite thing would have to be the fact that to do anything off post you have to drive 45 min at least.

Any other tips?

Do a lot of research of the area and the post so you don’t get bored.
