The staff are very kind and helpful. The park is clean and very shady. Lots of trees, birds, squirrels, and the like. Campsite spaces are tightly packed. Most spaces are not level and are back-in access only. Very good backing-up ability is absolutely required for most spaces. There is not much room to spread out when outside your camping unit. Entrance into the campground and the intra-campground roads were very tight in our small motorhome. Timid rig drivers would most likely have a difficult time maneuvering inside the campground. Big rigs would be almost, if not completely, impossible to handle here. There is a medium-sized pool very close to the campground. There is also a cave tour and gift shop on property. The tour is about an hour long, covers roughly .5 miles, is fairly level, and has only a couple of steps. Fee at writing is about $13 for adults. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I'm not exactly sure how to rate this campground. On one hand, it had a special ambiance to it that took us back in time to the 1960's. It it a quiet, family-oriented campground with all of the basic necessities. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the Caverns and Homestead exhibit were an added bonus. On the other hand, we felt like the campground was in disrepair. I'm sure being a small family run campground, that funds are tight to do improvements. However, they could increase their business by 200 percent if they would invest some money into it's appearance. My negative comments would include unlevel sites which are too close to each other, and the need to upgrade the bathhouse. My positive comments would include the beautiful scenery, nice pool and location with area attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We are giving this campground a 7 only because it really needs some updating and upkeep. The caverns are great (our guide was very knowledgeable) , as is the animals, pool and the quiet area. At check in the people weren't too friendly. The bathrooms weren't cleaned and there wasn't a lot of hot water. I don't think that we will go back We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

It is with reluctance I give this park a 6. There is a real dicotomy here. Start with the Pluses: Great location, quiet, recently part of Passport America (hence low rate), Wi-Fi (but only at picnic pavillion near cave entrance), lots of shade and room for kids, tent sites, lots to do at campground with caverns and woodworking and living history displays, close to Mentone and Fort Payne. Minuses: tight sites, some significant leveling issues, tight turns on gravel roads, steep grade in/out, dump station not on level surface and in disrepair, lack of hot water in showers (tepid at best, pilot light went out we were told), most of the sites could use some attention of some sort. We stopped here to visit the area, and were happy with choice. Take time to visit caverns and chat with family members. If you have PA, it is a GREAT deal. But if you have a big rig, are not comfortable on narrow roads, have trouble backing, then this may not be your cup of tea. I really want to see them succeed and keep this facility open. With the temporary closure of State Park campground for renovations, hopefully increased business will provide capital to make the improvements needed to bring this up to a 8 or 9 with out a lot of effort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
