Other than a lack of shade/trees of any size, this park is outstanding. As others have said, the sites are huge, level paved pull-throughs. If you are looking for a place to park your mobile hotel room, this is definitely the place. The PX and commissary are nearby, which is nice. If you're looking to camp, the nearby state park is the better choice. We stopped here enroute home to take the kids to the space center. The laundry and bath houses are spotless. We would absolutely stay here again. If there was more shade/vegetation between the sites, I'd give it a 10. We camped at Redstone Arsenal Campground (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a much-improved park from when we were there in March 2004. Area 1 is now overflow-only and, according to the hosts, will not be renovated. Area 2 is newly renovated and very nice. Sites are generally level, and are clean, well-spaced and shaded. There's also a small but nice playground in Area 2. As mentioned earlier, some sites have a deck-type set-up, many of which overlook the lake below. There's plenty to do in the park itself - miniature golf, paddle & fishing boat rentals, trails, a swimming beach, and the springs themselves, which are steeped in history. 2 years ago, we would've given this park a 5 or 6. Now it's a 9. We camped at Indian Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pro's: Shaded sites that were pretty level, ample space between sites, many/most sites are waterfront, great place for water enthusiasts, staff was friendly. Super place if you want to get away from it all and hang out under the awning or around the campfire. It's also less than 30 min. from I-20 when coming from the Atlanta area. Con's: Many sites aren't suitable for rigs much over 30'; seemed to be even fewer that could accommodate 35'+. Many of the sites were in a "T" formation with 2 sites sharing a common driveway, which is the bottom portion of the "T" and each site making half of the top part of the "T. " Because of this configuration, it seemed like the length of the RV would be an issue for many sites, due to having to make an almost 90 degree turn to get out of the site and on to the driveway. We were in a 33' 5er on a 30' site but didn't expect any problems since there's about 4 1/2' of our 5er over the bed of the truck, putting us at under 30' behind the truck. Although getting in to the site was fairly simple, getting out was extremely difficult, even with a slider hitch. Overall, we liked this CG and if we could've gotten a pull through, or 35' back in site, things would've been even better. This review is written as a cautionary tale to owners of longer RV's. If your rig's total length is longer than 30', make sure you get on at least a 35' site. Conversely, it's wonderful for smaller RV's & tents. We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
