Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS, Jasper, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice sites, but sort of close together. Good water access with good bank/shore fishing possible. Showers were old and tired. Unfortunately they were controlled by a push button for water flow. However the mix (hot/cold) was just right, amazingly. Very expensive firewood, $5.00 for six or eight "twig" like pieces of wood. No cell coverage with T-Mobile. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground offers a peaceful scene of trees and nature on the backwaters of the Alabama River and is situated on Catoma Creek in a forest of hickory and pine. The park is basically divided into two sections, Catoma Loop (Sites 1 – 75) (e.g. newer section) and Antioch Loop (Sites 76 - 142) (e.g. older section). The main difference that I noted was that the pads in Antioch Loop where all gravel and provide water/electric only. All sites have a gravel area for the picnic table, fire ring, and BBQ and lamp post. Both sections provide multiple bunk houses that are clean and appear well maintained. The bunk houses provide for separate flush toilets and sinks and individual shower areas. One dump station is also provided at each area. Laundry facilities are located at the larger bunk house. Multiple paved and rustic hiking, walking, and bike trails are available, as well. Gunter Hill has a pavilion on each side of the park. A full range of support facilities are available with Wally World being 15 miles away and Maxwell AFB (for authorized users) 9.5 miles away. Using Verizon I had great voice coverage and fairly decent Internet on 3G network allowing for music to stream, but I was not as fortunate with video streaming from Netflix. Red Box rental booth is located < 4 miles at a Winn Dixie store. Since Gunter Hill is a COE facility the rates are $20.00 for water/electric and $22.00 for water/electric/sewer. Of course, the geezer card will reduce these rates by half. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

DeWayne Hayes COE, Columbus, Mississippi

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Dewayne Hayes offers a wide range of camping scenarios for you to choose from; privacy, closeness to bunk houses, closeness to pavilion. I stayed at site 92 with water/electric only. I wanted the privacy and boy, did I get it! Cost is very negligible with water/electric sites coming in at $18.00 per night and $9.00 per night with the geezer pass. Full hook up water/electric/sewer sites come in at $22.00 per night and $11.00 per night with the geezer pass. Bunkhouses are plentiful, clean and are set up similar to the one at Millers Ferry, 2 toilets, 2 sinks, 2 showers; one of each is handicap accessible. Paved walking, hiking, biking trails run through the park as well. This park also supports two (2) separate dump stations. Support services (Wally World/Full Service Type) are located within 6.9 miles from the campground plus for Military Retirees; Columbus Air Force Base is only 7.42 miles away and offers the standard compliment of services. We camped at DeWayne Hayes COE in a Motorhome.

Burchfield Branch Park COE, Adger, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Burchfield Branch Park is located near Adger, AL and provides great access to Holt Lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway northeast of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway consists of six lakes with a total length of 457 miles and 39,800 surface acres of water. This facility also offers great amenities, access to the water, limited hiking trails, and opportunities to view wildlife. Water front sites are numbers 1 through 7. Best site on the water is 6. Stay away from site 4 as it is configured incorrectly with hook ups on the wrong side of the RV. If you opt for the waterfront sites beware that the nearest full service bath facility is a little bit away. There is a toilet at the entrance to the loop, though. Both facilities were always in a high state of cleanliness. Don’t forget anything as the nearest respectable “Resupply Center” is far. There is a small country store at the turn off to Lock 17 Road. This is really a nice place to get away from it all. I had no cell phone or TV coverage. This was my second visit and the service/facility was consistent. Cost per night $11.00 with the geezer pass. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Deerlick Creek COE, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Deerlick Creek Campground is located Holt Lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway northeast of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The facility is in a beautiful forest along the shoreline that provides campers with access to water sports, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, and biking. Sites are paved, large in size with a good bit of privacy, and full hook ups (W/E/S). I camped at Site 11, located across from the bunk house, and in my opinion this site was the best. Bunk house was super clean. Numerous on shore fishing docks are provided. I caught three respectable sized Crappie during my stay. Another unplanned benefit that I encountered was that the sites were stocked with ready to use (split and dried) fire wood at no cost. This added benefit was provided by the resident COE volunteer, a retired Marine. Thank you kind Sir! The campground is situated amidst a mixed pine and hardwood forest that displays colorful foliage along the riverbanks each fall. Deer, squirrel, wild turkey, migratory birds and blue birds all live in the Holt Lake area. Cell phone coverage was good. TV reception was nonexistent. Deerlick has the potential to host rallies as it has a huge outdoor pavilion which sports 8 picnic tables, electrical, water, and a huge BBQ. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Tremont Outdoor Resort, Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The environmental ambiance of the Tremont RV Resort is phenomenal, e.g. the babbling brook, the proximity to the Smokey Mountains, and the weather. However that’s where the term Outdoor Resort comes to a screeching halt. I don’t mind paying top dollar ($32.00 per night) for a top dollar site, but I certainly did not expect to pay top dollar for a less than average facility. My first impression of the facility is that it resembles an RV parking lot... The sites are packed within inches of each other, no privacy between sites, no BBQ grills on any of the sites, my site was unpaved, uneven and sloped, the fire rings are rusted through and the majority were filled with water making them useless. The hot water in the showers was warm and nowhere near hot. The attitude at the main office was abysmal at best. This was my first and quite frankly it will be my last visit to this location. Even with the 20% discount it was less than favorable. I would have been madder than a hornet had I paid the $60.00 per night fee during the season. Plenty of other commercial facilities available which I am almost sure are a better value. Two words to describe this place: RIP OFF!!! We camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Corinth Recreation Area, Double Springs, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Located in Bankhead National Forest, near Double Springs, AL. Corinth is a popular recreation area on Lake Lewis Smith. The campground is divided into two separate loops with a resident host on each one. The usual amenities are provided; wheelchair accessible; Flush toilets (super clean bunk house), drinking water, etc. Sites have great spacing; full hookups, and can accommodate RVs of any size. Sites also provide separate paved parking spurs, picnic tables (heavy as a house and not moveable), grills, and tent pads as well. Lots of peace and quiet as the park was almost empty during my stay. Cost per night $17.00 with the geezer pass. We camped at Corinth Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Service Park Campground COE, Coffeeville, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Only two words come to mind when describing this campground located in Coffeeville, AL; First Class! This place is awesome! Clean, rustic, and without a doubt off the beaten path. For $10.00 a night this is paradise! I had a waterfront site where I could see barges moving up and down the river all day and night long. There are also nicely secluded wooded sites. Host was very helpful and nice and pretty much left everyone alone. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Pack everything you need in because the little “stores” around the area don’t carry much other than the basics. There is a small grocery store in Coffeeville proper. While you're there don't miss eating at the Four Gals restaurant located in Coffeeville as well. Not much to look at but the food was wonderful. Fuel was also noticeably higher by 15 cents per gallon. Might be a good idea to fuel up before heading in to the back country. Enjoy! We camped at Service Park Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Grand Gulf Military Monument Park, Port Gibson, Mississippi

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Showers/toilet area were clean but dated, no biggie as all the site are full hook up. I was rushed for time and was unable to see the museum and exhibits, but they did seem well kept and interesting as I drove through. The majority of the sites sites seemed large, accommodating and shaded with beautiful shade trees. Campground is locate in a remote area and is very quite. Do not expect much of Port Gibson, MS... No major support services only a small Piggly Wiggly and a Dollar General. Also be advised that it is located next to Nuclear Plant (less than 1/2 mile) so have your insurance policies/wills in place just in case... No over air TV reception, fair cell and broadband coverage. Worth checking out at least once. Travel safe. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Travel Trailer.

Huntsville State Park, Huntsville, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Good place for an overnight if you are traveling through the area. Showers were like an oven as they had no ventilation. They where sort of clean but not unusable; same with toilet area. I cannot evaluate the park amenities but they seemed adequate. Most sites seemed large and accommodating with shade cover. Gets lots of usage by locals. No over air TV reception; good cell and broadband coverage. One good thing, I was issued a State of Texas Veterans Pass which waived the usage fee. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Owners are super nice and friendly and the park is managed in the same fashion. Without a doubt if you have to stay in Fort Stockton, TX this is where you want to be. This newest and quite frankly the best looking facility in town. I drove around to all of them off of I-10 before coming to this conclusion and I’m glad I did. Owners live on site. I would have rated this facility a solid 10+; if they had more than one shower/toilet suite for each sex, and provided cable TV. I was not able to lock in any over the air TV signals at all but they did offer free DVD's for checkout. Mind you these are not major deal breakers, but it would have been nice to have more showers and some entertainment. They are new and growing and I’m sure within time the will continue to evolve. If I ever have to return to this area, this is where I am staying. Hilltop RV is located on the North side of I-10 across from the metal Indian silhouettes on the South side of I-10. Travel safe. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chewalla Lake Recreation Area, Holly Springs, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Chewalla Lake is a USFS property. There are not many RV slots but there are many tent sites. The camp host was awesome. He cleaned all the fire rings and even stocked the sites with free firewood. The facility has a lot of room to walk, a small sandy beach by the lake and offers a nice surrounding get away from city life. Primitive comes to mind. I had no problem getting internet with my Verizon Wi-Fi card and phone service as well. Although clean, the bunk house showers could use a good scrubbing/painting. That's why I rated the campground as a 7. Not much wild life but very quiet. The town of Chewalla is very nice and repleat with stuff to do. All in all a good/fair place to camp. We camped at Chewalla Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tishomingo State Park, Tishomingo, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

We camped overnight enroute to Chewalla State Park. The drive on the "Trace" was awesome and finding this site was equally as nice. Only 4 or 5 others units (RV/Tents) so the place was super quiet. Front spots have terrific spacing between sites but as you move to the rear of the camp they get a bit tighter. Maintenance was being conducted on a lot of items (e.g. electrical boxes, bunk house, etc...) which is a good thing. Overall it was a nice place to camp and I'm sure to return for a day or two. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.
