How can I get directions?

Newcomers who arrive in their vehicles will more than likely be traveling on Interstate 75. Take exit 146 to the Georgia Highway 247 Connector (also called Watson Blvd.). The road will take you directly to the base, about 10 miles away from the exit.You can also exit coming from the north at exit 160A and take Highway 247 about 15 miles south to the base. 

Military members entering at the Visitor's Center at Gate 3, which is open 24 hours a day, should report directly to the orderly room of the organization they are assigned. 

The orderly room will contact the Military Personnel Flight to schedule an appointment for in-processing. If there are any questions about where to report upon arrival, military members will be directed to the Military Personnel Flight's customer service office in Building 767. After hours,members will be directed to the 24-hour arrival point, the billeting office in Building 557.

We offer base tours to schools, community and reunion groups. Tours are available for groups high school age and older. Due to the size of the facilities being toured, group sizes are limited to no more than 60 people but require a minimum group size of at least 12 people. 

You may e-mail your tour request to the public affairs office. Itineraries are individually planned based on each group's requirements. Tours are conducted Monday through Friday only during the business day. 

A minimum of 60 days notice is required for all tours and requests are taken on a first come, first served basis and schedules fill up quickly. You can contact the office to check the availability of a specific date but a written request is required to schedule the tour.
