We really enjoyed our stay here. The park staff was very helpful and even provided us some information to help us find some of the many geocaches hidden in the park. We checked in and were allowed to pick any open site. The site itself was level, and all utilities worked perfectly. Every site is waterfront. There was a fire pit on each site and firewood for the gathering all around the campground since a tornado passed right through the area a year or so ago. On Saturday night, 9 of the 11 sites were taken, but it was still quiet. The restrooms and showers were clean. Both restrooms had one shower stall that locked and one that didn't. We spent several hours hiking the trails around the park and rented a boat for a while to row around the lake. Verizon phones and aircards worked great. Wifi was available from the office and worked at site 3 but might not be reachable from site 11 without a booster. We recommend the park to anyone who likes remote places and quiet nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A very secluded and remote State Park with only 11 RV sites. All sites are waterfront. Fairly large swimming area adjacent to playground. All the staff (3) were friendly. John boats, canoes, and pedal boats are provided for rental. Fishing apparently was good for everyone but us. Resident Canadian geese look and sound great, but wear shoes where they sleep. We had no cell coverage, but others did. Only one TV channel on our over-the-air digital. The only problem with this park is that they don't take reservations. The staff realize the problem, and at the present time can do nothing about it. Call first and hope for the best. We plan to return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice COE park with large trees, large sites, kids playgrounds and access to fishing. This is a very nice park and apparently is only full during summer weekends. They even have laundry facilities. What great value. It would be a nice place to spend some time and television is available via antenna. Access signage is a little inadequate so be sure you have good local directions. It is best to come from the Selma entrance. We would certainly stay again if in the area.

One of the two campground loops was closed off this time of year. We were one of only two or three campers in the park, which is adjacent to the Alabama River. Our site was a "premium" site right on the river. The site is lined with crushed stone and is very large; we could have fit three cars or more plus the motorhome. All sites are apparently water & electric. The price reflects our 50% off senior pass. Standard sites are $14 a night, or $7 for senior pass folks. The electric service appears recently new or upgraded, with 20, 30, and 50 amp receptacles at our site. There was no staff on site when we arrived Sunday afternoon, so we completed an envelope and left payment inside. The dump station is conveniently located on the way out of the campground. This is a beautiful park and we would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was beautiful! From the moss hanging from the trees to the river view, our visit here was excellent. The sites were large, huge concrete pad with picnic tables, fire pit and very wooded. The only negative was getting to it. It was a bit difficult to find, but worth the search. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall the park was very nice. The restrooms and showers were well kept and clean. The dock at the end of the boat ramp was very crowded. Although the rules state that alcohol is prohibited, there were several people openly drinking throughout the park, some extremely intoxicated. Do not come to this park if you want some peace and quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
While staying at Prairie Creek Park on the east side off Selma, I decided to take the kids on a picnic at Six Mile Creek Campground on the west side of Selma. Although we didn't camp here, I did check out the sites. Many of them are located on a bluff just above the creek while some are down closer to the water. All sites are compact gravel and level. A few were starting to show signs of grass growing on the sites. To be fair, though, the park was operating on the honor system. The park is only attended between April and October, although it appeared that some hosts were staying there. I only saw one other camper. Most of the trees in the park are covered with hanging moss - it's very pretty. There is a very nice, new, playground. Again, we didn't actually camp here. Therefore, I didn't assess the restrooms or showers. We'll have to do that when we come back here to camp, which we will do. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
