I found this campground to be quite nice. It looks like most of the units are long term visitors who leave their units and come/go for months at a time. The campground has lots of old trees to provide shade in the summer. The restrooms are clean and the WIFI works well near the clubhouse. It isn't a bad drive to Gulf Shores. I would stay again. Our site had eyebolts in the patio to tie down your awning or pet.

This is the second time we have stayed at OMSP. The bathrooms were cleaned twice a day during our visit. There were only about 12-15 sites occupied and 3 of those were hosts. OMSP has a lot of hiking and biking trails. The lake is within walking distance from all sites for fishing. The parking pads are fairly level. However, many sites are either small and wide or narrow and deep. It rained the day we left and of course our site flooded right outside the door. It appears they have recently cut down all the hedge bushes that provided some privacy from neighboring sites. My computer and phone found the Wi-Fi, but would never connect. Our neighbors had the same trouble. Cell phone service is not a problem. pros: Clean bathrooms, level parking pads, loads of outdoor activities, bingo on Saturday night (in-season) cons: no privacy, drainage issues near the pavilion, narrow sites.

This is a great place to camp if you are looking for a quiet place away from the rest of the world. There are 11 sites total and all have full hook-ups. All sites are back-in and overlook the water. Sites 1-6 are older and have trees to give you some privacy from your neighbor. Sites 6-11 have little tree privacy. I listed site 6 in both because it has privacy from site 5, but not from site 7. They do have tall trees nearby to provide some summer shade. The sun rising over the lake is a sight to behold. The playground is great and my kids had a blast. It is right by the beach and can be seen from most campsites. There is one bath house for the whole campground. The entire park including the campground and bath house are accessible to day use visitors. This isn't a problem during the winter when we visited, however it might be during the summer when the beach is busy or you wake up to people fishing off the back of your campsite. Cell phone coverage is virtually nonexistent. We were able to pick up a few bars at the park entrance. There is no Wi-Fi available either. There is a pay phone at the bath house. It was a great weekend for us. We will surely return in the future. As of Nov 2011 they accept reservations so plan ahead.

This campground is very well maintained. The bathrooms were cleaned every morning. There were maintenance people who drove golf carts around a few times a day to pick up trash and paper. There is a tram that will take you to and from the beach. Its use is highly recommended. Our daughter lost her glasses at the playground. Before we knew they were gone, someone had turned them into the office. Positives: Bath houses were well located. Just a few feet from any site. Very nice beach. Nice size sites with tall pines for shade. Negatives: Backing into sites by the laundry facilities is tricky, even with a short trailer.

This is a nice campground. Everyone was extremely nice from the staff to the visitors. The campground is small so in the course of a weekend visit you meet just about everyone. We visited during their Halloween celebration. Great fun was planned for kids of all ages including ghost tours and trick or treating. Positives: Great playground, quiet night sleep, friendly staff, wide parking pad. Negatives: Long walk to the bathroom/shower, close together sites, dusty (rock and dirt). We will definitely stay here again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this campground to anyone. We stayed here in a pop-up.

This campground is one of the top we have stayed at. We stayed at site 39 along the river. The cul-de-sac turn-around is small and those cars who wandered down our road had to do a 3-point turn to get out. My kids loved riding up and down the paved street on their bikes and scooters. All the sites are well designed with large level concrete pads for RVs and wood decks to enjoy the outdoors. The only negative thing I can say about the campground is the amount of poison ivy. Most of it seemed like new growth, but they need to spray around the sites before it gets bad. Even with that being said, we will definitely stay here again.

This is a small campground, with a few very pretty sites overlooking a large wooded area. The bath house and laundry area were very clean and in good shape. It is close to Auburn and stores should you forget anything, but far enough away to enjoy the off-season peace and quiet.
