Review: This field IS open to the public.

Fort Campbell Paintball field is definitely not the biggest field I've ever played at, but they work with what they have. It's owned and operated by the Army's MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) program. It seems like they sometimes have trouble getting funds for field maintenance and such, but the staff do everything they can to keep it in good running order and do a pretty good job at it. They just got a new airball field, but it's a little rocky in some areas so make sure you wear your pads, unless it's been raining, then have a ball in the mud. The layout is usually the same, they could probably change it up a bit, but I bet that's partially due to the limited number of speedball players that are regulars at this field.

The staff is super friendly and will help you in any way they can. The biggest problem is the ref's they have. Most of them are teenagers that get sent there to work for some school work-and-stay-out-of-trouble program. Most of them have little to no experience reffing or even playing paintball, and mostly kind of just stand around hoping they don't get hit. They are good kids, just not the best paintball refs in the world. Usually at least one of the actual staff members will be on the field to kind of delegate the games and keep an eye out for safety violations. They do have some strict rules, but often they aren't enforced as well as they could be. Not saying they aren't safe, just following through with punishments on continuous rule breakers is where they seem to lack.

Most of the people that play at this field are your average rec-ballers and the majority of them are stationed at Ft. Campbell or are sons/daughters of soldiers stationed there. Occasionally you get a few hot-heads and tempers will get a bit flared, but everything is usually settled after a hand shake and a cigarette. I've never witnessed any kind of physical threats or any kind of fighting whatsoever. Language and smack-talk can get a bit harsh, but people tend to tone it down when there are children around. If you're that concerned about it, I would just make sure you set up away from the main tables. There are a few other tables around and you can always bring your own chairs and fold out tables to put in the shade.

The biggest asset this field has is their volunteers. Many soldiers from Fort Campbell, and civilians from the Clarksville area who are avid paintball players will show up and help with reffing occasionally and try to help out with gun repairs and organization of teams and games as well. They make everything run alot smoother when they are around, but since they are not employees, they aren't always there.

They have two woodsball fields. Both are pretty decent size fields. One is kind of open with lots of trees and small bunkers and an "Alamo" type fort on one side. The other has two large forts and a bridge/tower type thing in the middle that goes across a dry creek bed. Both are lots of fun to play and although they don't have many different fields, they don't mind letting the players choose different game types to kind of change things up a bit so the fields don't get so old.

Prices are great considering everything is tax free. Paint choice is pretty limited, but they usually have good paint so it's not really anything to complain about. You can also bring your own paint at no extra charge. $25 will get any newcomer a full setup, all day air, and 500rds of paint. That's the best rental prices I've EVER seen at ANY paintball field.

They do not have a pro-shop. The only pro-shop in the area is Riverside Pro Archery and Paintball and that place is a joke (I'll save the details for a different review). If you play in the Clarksville area, expect to do most of your paintball shopping online or in Nashville.

All in all, I give this field an 8 out of 10. There are a few things that could use improvement, but overall, if you come here with a positive attitude, you can expect to have a good time.
