Date of Stay:

We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place to park our 5th wheel for awhile, well this was it. Just one problem: the little gnats were so bad, we couldn't set out, have a fire, or enjoy the outdoors. I stayed inside all the time, just went out when we drove somewhere. Not all sites are level, but they do describe them as slopped on their web site, so we were prepared for that. There is a lot of construction going on around the campground, so it is not a quiet place during the day. Campsites are nicely spaced, but you still don't feel like it is very private.

Date of Stay:

Our site had a wooden patio, which was very nice because it rained while we were here, and there was standing water around the sites. They lock up the campground at 7pm and that is a little inconvenient, but I understand the reasoning. The after hours entrance is a little out of the way. Laundry is free: which means lots of waiting for one of the 2 washers and one of the dryers was out of order while we were here. They provided good directions to places around the area.

Date of Stay:

Everything in the park, except the Upland RV campground was closed. Most of the campsites were level and spaced far enough apart that there was privacy. WIFI was weak and limited use. Very few campers even on the week-end. Area kind of remote and a 5 or 6 mile drive to anything.

Date of Stay:

Rates have gone up since last year. The rate I quoted was with a Passport America discount. They do honor the discount for your entire stay. We stayed here last year. Not much has changed except the the price. Clean, friendly staff, good TV. Wi-Fi is another charge.

Date of Stay:

Rate quoted is with Good Sam discount. This is the second time we have stayed here. It is a little hard to find, not right off the freeway, but in a residential area. Several long term residents in the park. It is on our route when we head south for the winter. Will probably continue to use it as a stop over for a day or two.

Date of Stay:

Rate I quoted was weekly rate (per night) for a site that is not on the water. Sites are meticulously raked and cleaned almost daily. Staff very friendly and helpful. There really isn't much of a beach, but being this close to the water is great. Fishing from the pier is allowed, but non productive while we were here. Sites are flat, easy to get in and out of (the ones by the water are a little closer together) hook-ups easy to use. Area called the Forgotten Coast for a reason, things are relaxed, laid back, no hustle and bustle of some of the more touristy areas around. Laundry, bathrooms, rec room and office are in an older building that could use some upgrading. We enjoyed our stay here and will probably come back again. We stayed for two weeks.

Price reflects the weekly rate during the winter season. No state park entrance fee for Alabama state parks. We were on the canal and were able to get in for a week by getting on their waiting list the day we arrived. Their reservation system leaves something to be desired. We were there on March 1st and were able to get a reservation for next March. The whole process is very confusing and not very user friendly. Don't know how you would get a reservation if you weren't there in person. Our site was on the canal. They are all pull-through sites in that area. Sites are paved, and there are patios at each site. Not much screening or trees for privacy on most of the sites. I had trouble with missed calls with my Verizon cell phone. TV reception was good using the antenna; we also used the DirecTV dish for more choices. We plan to return again next year. We like using the recently completed 150 foot pier for fishing. Also nice to go across the highway and have a public beach available.

Price per night reflects Passport America discount. They let us use it for the whole week we were there. This is a nice resort type campground. There were planned activities for those who wanted to participate. We stayed a week and will probably return again sometime. Nice sized sites. Shrubbery had been planted between sites, but it actually was hard to get to the hook-up because the cement pad was too narrow and you had to park too close to the shrubbery. Once the slide was out, it was difficult to get to the hook-ups. We didn't fish from the lake but if we return that is something we may look into. Easy drive to the coast and beach area for a day trip.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount. They also provide a Senior discount for 62 and older. We stayed two nights. We used a pull-through site. Sites were gravel, level, and fairly close together with not much screening or privacy. Hook-ups were easy to use. Verizon cell phones worked in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. We will probably stay here again if the need arises.

Date of Stay:

February is the off season for this campground. We were the only campers in the entire campground. Sites were level and good sized but all were out in the open with little privacy. Site was a back-in, and we were able to keep the pick-up hooked up for the night. We used this as a stopover on our way south for the winter. The visitors center was open so we spent some time in there. We also visited the fort which was interesting. There was no charge for touring the fort. Also no entrance fee for the state park, so the price for camping was reasonable.

Date of Stay:

Campground is open all year long. We used it as a stopover on our way from WI to the Gulf Coast. The campground is good for that purpose. It is easy to find and close to the freeway system. The sites are very narrow, but in Feb. we didn't have someone on both sides of us, and we weren't wanting to spend much time outside. We had a pull through and were able to keep the pickup hooked up for the night. The sites were gravel and everything was wet because the snow was melting. They are working on some of the sites, but they will still be pretty close together.

This campground is currently under construction and is listed as a 55+ RV resort. It is very close to I-35, easy to find, easy on and off etc. Right now they offer nightly rates, but the idea is to sell individual sites and make it a 55+ community. Lots of landscaping has been done at the entrance. A couple of easy pull through sites but the rest are back in. Hook-ups are easy to use. There are shrubs planted between sites which will allow privacy someday. Sites are gravel and level. If you buy a site you can choose how to have it, gravel or cement. There is a small lake, but no swimming beach and it is not large enough for boating. We wanted to check it out, but doubt if we will stop again.

Date of Stay:

We have family in the area and this is the second time we have stayed here. Both times was just after the area had flooded. We stayed up by the office building this time so it wasn't so wet. Owners are friendly and helpful. Not much contact with them after check-in. Sites are gravel and level. Even the upper level was wet and muddy. Sites are close together on the upper level. Hook-ups were ok. Campground is just off I-35, you can see the traffic from the campground but I did not notice any noise from it while we were here. Easy to find and easy to get off and on the freeway. We will probably stay here again because of the family. A nice campground.

Date of Stay:

Very new campground but the sites are extremely close together. Signs are hard to find, we entered the back way because we missed the sign for the front entrance. Owners were friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and showers are new and spotless. We camped over a week-end and there were several sites that were not filled.

Date of Stay:

This RV park is open year round. A place to stop on our way south and again on our way north. Entrance is a little difficult, a turn and up hill. Sites are concrete slab, back-in sites. Some long term residents live in this RV park. The staff when we checked in did not know how to apply a Good Sam's discount to our registration. No recreation, but a place to stop for an overnight.
