"Remote" is the word I would use to describe Isaac Creek Campground. Literally at the end of the road. If you want to be away from it all, this is a great place to be. Pack well, it's about 15 miles back to Monroeville, and at least 8 to the nearest country store and fuel. CG check-in was fast and efficient, hosts were friendly. They had our Recreation.gov reservations ready and waiting, it didn't take more that a minute to register. Our site was on the Alabama River, albeit about a 150 foot walk over to the edge of a boulder-lined embankment overlooking the river/navigational channel. Electric and water worked quite well, no voltage issues. Pad and picnic/sitting area was clean. Nice mix of sun and shade. Bathouses were clean and well maintained, although the mirrors left something to be desired in terms of reflective quality. Laundry in each bathouse. Cell service through CSpire was 3 bar with 1G service, AT&T service was 2 bar, both steady. Good DTV service was from Pensacola/Mobile, and included ABC, CBS, and PBS, a few independents, and including continual weather on Ch. 5.2. Campsites 1-6 and 56-60 are gravel surfaces. All others are concrete pad with a fine gravel tent pad/picnic/sitting area. Sites 9-31 are on Isaac Creek, a muddy but picturesque backwater popular for fishing. Sites 32-42 are on the Alabama River. Sites 42-55 are interior sites. Sites 36-42 are first come/serve non-reservable. Bicycling was fantastic, with miles of roads and several miles of off-road riding along levees and trails. Cypress swamps were beautiful. We scared an alligator, and it scared us, so cool! Birdwatching was outstanding, over 65 species. Great Egrets everywhere. Botanical biodiversity incredible. There is a factory outlet for Lee/Wrangler/Vanity Fair with true outlet prices on irregular garments. A warning for driving: About 2 miles east of the dam is a small cluster of houses, a yello snake road warning sign, and a sharp curve right and downhill. Very dangerous if going to fast, especially for an RV. Be careful when leaving. We found the campground to be used mostly for fishing, but some people were there simply to relax. We would camp here again after several years, but would not want to go too often because of the limited amount of activities available in the surrounding area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

That this campground is remote goes without saying. Nonetheless, we loved staying here and would do so again. We swapped our river view pull through for a first-come first-served lake front back-in and drove into the site face-first to enjoy the peaceful view (you need to have enough hose and electric cable length to do so, but it was oh so worth it). A great campground to just chill - great for those who like to fish. We left a day early to get ahead of a storm that was heading in the direction of our next campground, and the hosts were very understanding and refunded the last day's camping fee without us having to ask them. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice COE campground with very helpful people running the place. Basically a place for boaters on the rock lined river/canal. We just did an overnight stop and it is probably too far away from anything for that. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
