Outdoor Recreation (ODR) provides opportunities to enjoy the outdoors through an array of activities, including paintball, camping, backpacking, fishing, hunting and more. We help Soldiers and family members acquire skills and develop interests that will last a lifetime.

ODR hosts many great events throughout the year on post and off, but we also have resources available at our facility on Main Post for those looking for adventure on their own. We rent boats, vehicles, sporting goods, camping and fishing equipment and so much more. We also stock a great variety of household goods, lawn equipment, games, inflatable bounce houses, tables and more.

With the ringing of 2021, Army Family & MWR is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Army Outdoor Recreation. In celebration of such a monumental milestone, Fort Benning Family & MWR will be guiding local patrons all summer long through services and resources offered by Outdoor Recreation, so you can start planning for your next outdoor adventure.

Maybe you’re a hunter, runner, watersports lover or hiker; No matter your outdoor activity of choice, Outdoor Recreation is here to serve you! How can you help us celebrate 50 years of Army Outdoor Recreation?
