The Park is a State Park on the main highway serving the western panhandle. It is a convenient stop point even if traveling the Interstate as it is an easy 10 minutes from an exit. Price is right but it fills up rapidly. The Park Rangers that help incoming campers are a mixed breed of government workers, i.e., some care, some don't. The rules are are specific and without exception as one might expect. Having said that, it is a lovely, shaded and nature-respecting park. No sewer or Internet, just the basics, but the peacefulness it exudes is immediate.

The Pecan Point RV park in Dothan, AL is conveniently located off the main highway about 12 miles from the Florida border. Camping sites along the highway are noisier than other sites. Older, mobile home residences, smaller campers of seasonal workers and RV’s make up the campground community of about 100 spaces that seem generally available. The long-term residents are friendly. The park is subleased and operated by a local family. The Father is retired from operations that are now run by his sons. Once in good condition, maintenance is needed: trash around dumpsters is unsightly and unsanitary, only one bathroom each that needs upkeep serves all men and women (weekends find them particularly dirty), unkempt laundry rooms have few machines that may or may not be in service, pets are required to be leashed, but are not always cleaned-up after. All-in-all, there are other places before and after the Florida border we will stay. We wouldn’t return because of suspected drug trafficking associated with the son’s management.
