We were quickly checked in and given our site assignment - a pull-thru near the front of the park. Due to the difficulty of getting to the site (need to back up and make a sharp into the row and another sharp turn to the left) we requested a different site which was assigned. We plugged in our surge protector and it read 'Open ground' so we refused that site as well (stating our reason)and were given the adjoining site. The campground seems to be the home for many long term residents as well as short terms. The restrooms were adequate but needed a thorough cleaning. During our 3 night stay, the trash was emptied once, restocking of supplies was apparently done once, and it did not appear to be cleaned during that time. The roads are marked with direction arrows that few campers seem to follow. They are paved and in fair condition. There was not much noise from the interstate despite its proximity. The campground is apparently under relatively new ownership. Suggestion: in traveling around the area, do not rely on your GPS. It tries to take you onto streets that were closed or non-existent. We would not stay again.

This is an older campground with many long term campers and and apparently deserted units. It appears to be under new ownership or new management and they seem to be making some improvements. The bathrooms need upgrading, the roads are in poor condition with potholes and ruts as well as tree roots. It is quite a ways from the interstate so there is no traffic noise. Pets appear to be allowed to run loose (despite requirement for leashing) as we found numerous areas of animal droppings in our site. The single staff person we saw was very helpful even moving us to a site other than the one assigned when we made our reservation as he was uncertain if we would be able to reach the sewer hookup at the back of the site. We will probably not return except in an emergency.

This is a beautiful park. All current sites have a view of water - even if it is only a small view. It has the look of a new park so we were surprised to find that it's an older park undergoing renovation. The entrance has a coded security gate. New features are being added including some more new sites. All the sites added this year are pull thrus. The restrooms and laundry are immaculate. The restrooms are individual with shower, sink, and commode and have the feeling of luxury. All sites are paved but can be somewhat inaccessible based on angle of entry. The new central pull thru sites have multiple utility so they can be entered from either direction. Unfortunately, our site (a new site) did not have a sewer hookup that we could access and was far from level front to rear. Managers are full-time and onsite and very helpful. For non-campers, there are cabins for rent. The resort is only a few miles from historic Defuniak Springs as well as a large RV dealership. We would return.

An older park undergoing renovation by new owners. Several long term residents including some leftover from previous owner. The majority of sites are full hookup but ours was water and electric only. There is no dump station. The owners are very helpful - even walking with us to our site after a heavy rainstorm that caused erosion in front of our site that would have made it impossible to pull out of our site. As promised, the next day brought gravel fill in front of our site and allowed us to leave without problems. The owners spend most of their days cleaning up the park and working on flower beds. The previous owner left numerous concrete statues throughout the park that add a bit of an eclectic appearance. It isn't much to look at from the road and there are some interior roads that have washed out but the owners are working on road repairs. Near the new sites is a , separate laundry/restroom that is clean and neat. The city of Prattville is historic and offers shopping, restaurants, and a little museum near the old factory that gives the city its name. We would definitely return.

This campground lives up to its reputation as the Gulf Coast's Best Kept Secret. The sites are huge and can accommodate any size rig. Some sites have picnic tables and concrete pads, but not all. The restrooms are clean and modern (the campground is only about 8 yrs. old). All sites are full hookup but my husband says the one urinal and 1 commode in the men's room is not adequate as a line forms every morning. The laundry is clean with industrial grade washers and dryers. There is minimal shade but here are trees planted that will eventually correct that problem. It is only about 25 miles to the Gulf Shore with all the restaurants and shopping and even closer to the Causeway over Mobile Bay with restaurants and shopping in Spanish Fort, Fairhope and Foley (including a Tanger Outlet. There are many seasonal campers so reserve early if you plan an extended stay. One can usually get short term accommodations if they call ahead. It is owner-managed and is being constantly improved and is very attractive with flower beds, seasonal shrubbery (mainly azaleas and roses), and the like. And, there is a pizza maker who will deliver to the campground several evenings a week. The owner organizes monthly get-togethers (ice cream socials and pancake breakfasts for example). The daily rate is based on our weekly rate. We also paid a deposit on electric and any left-over monies were refunded.

Beautiful little park. Owner/managers very helpful and obviously proud of their park. We were in Avalon West backed up to the little lagoon. restrooms were spotless, laundry also spotless. Both are handicapped accessible). There were two individual shower/commode units that shared the laundry building. We were led to our site and guided into the site (it was a back-in and we were very close to the water). A great place for waterfowl viewing and fishing off the bridge that connects the east and west sides of the park. No traffic noise despite the park's proximity to I10. Shopping, restaurants and attractions within a few miles (Naval Air Museum at Pensacola and Blackwater River State Park, for example). We were given area maps and directions to attractions, restaurants, and shopping at check-in. Plenty of room for walking around and enjoying the area.

Our second stay. Older campground. Owners are apparently trying to improve as evidenced by a new rail fence being installed. Other than that, no visible change in two years. Called for reservations one day in advance and when we arrived they has marked us as no-show for night before our scheduled arrival. No record of our previous stay but, when name was entered into their system, our credit card information was there! A bit disconcerting, to say the least. No explanation as we "apparently had not been there before". Several long term guests. Sites narrow with barely sufficient room for slides. Unable to put out awning. Sites are wooded. Restrooms are clean. Did not use laundry. Be sure to use directions in listing as your GPS will bring you through the town. We had a pull-thru site .

An older park with mainly long term and permanent residents. In need of some upgrading in all areas. The restrooms (one male, 1 female) contain 3 showers and one commode and, while not dirty, are not cleaned thoroughly every day. They need updating. The laundry is very affordable at $1.50 per machine. Most short-term sites are pull-through with barely room for slides, minimal space for tow vehicles and picnic tables that are falling apart. There is a community area and residents have regular activities that are attended by many of the residents. The park is in an older area of the town with questionable security. We would not return.

We stayed at this campground en route to FL as we have done several times in the past. It has changed staff and management since our last visit and it was evident. The sites are not nearly as well-maintained nor are the restrooms (trash in several sites, in several sites, restrooms not as clean as usual - bleach would remove many of the water stains). An employee commented that things aren't as nice as they used to be. Many long-term guests. Cable only available on a few sites. Things may be different during the busy season when people visit to fish and boat. May or may not return.

An older campground with several long-term residents and a few stored units. Friendly staff is very willing to assist campers. We had an escort to our site. We understand that the campground is under new ownership and is in a state of transition. The grounds are well-maintained and staff members regularly patrol and pick up trash when they see it. There are conveniently-placed trash receptacle throughout the park. Minimal highway noise despite close proximity to the interstate. None of the three (?) cable connections at our site worked. All three restrooms are cleaned regularly and well-stocked. Plenty of room to wander. There's is a 'lake' with an island, 'party room' and ducks. Difficult to find even with a GPS. Entrance very plain and almost unnoticeable. Would stay again.

Our second visit to this park. It's rustic but somewhat nice. Many long-term residents. It is somewhat close to the interstate but minimal highway noise. The sites are close together but there is room for slides. The ladies' room door would not close tight easily, the shower drains are trough-like. Lighting at night is minimal. No cable but if you are a subscriber to their satellite company, you can hook up to it in some sites. All that said, it is a nice park. Staff is friendly and helpful. Reservations are a must as there are only a few sites for overnights. May return.

We stayed one night while traveling through the area. The office staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would have appreciated a physical guide to our site as the map was a bit confusing. The park was nicely laid out. Our site was next to a camping cabin and parking was tight, making it a bit difficult to access our site. The park is shady and contained many trees. Many of the sites are on a hill but are relatively level. We did not participate in any of the activities other than walking around on the park roads and trails. It is a park that mainly caters to families with children but is also appropriate for senior adults. We would probably not return only because we do not travel in that direction often.

Our first stay. It's rustic with a western flair. Close to the Interstate but not a lot of highway noise. As it was just an overnight stay, I can't comment on area recreation, restaurants or campground amenities. Would return.

We stayed one night while traveling through the area. Somewhat rustic campground but an enjoyable stay away from the hustle and bustle of the area. We made reservations and were told that, if we'd be arriving after 4:00 PM, to call to give them our approximate arrival time. Apparently, the office is normally closed at that time. The office staff was very welcoming and gave us good directions to find our site. As we wanted a pull through, two sites were assigned making up a long pull through site. The restrooms were immaculate - even at three o'clock in the afternoon and 8:00 in the morning. There is plenty of room for walking if one is so inclined and there is no need to leave the campground to walk. There are several things for children to do. There is also an ice cream stand in the campground. We really enjoyed our short stay and will return when we are in the area.

This is a barebones campground on the hill behind a truck stop. There are multiple sites - pull thru and back in. The pull thrus are full hookup, not sure about the back ins. The shower building is concrete block and is not anything fancy but is utilitarian. It's a great place to stop for overnight or for a few days while visiting the area. If you are hungry, there is a full service restaurant at the foot of the hill and the food is great (of course - it's a truck stop and you know they say to look for the trucks when you are looking for a place to eat). They do take reservations but usually have space if you just stop in passing through. There is a fair amount of truck noise as most of the overnight trucks keep their engines running, but it is not bothersome. We would stay again.
