COE Park along the river. Sites are well spaced and pad very level. Plenty of shade trees. We stayed in site 35 in the woods. Also they have 8 sites that back up to the river with deck overlooking the water. Site and entire park very clean. Showers and restrooms spotless!! No Verizon cell service and only 1 on air channel but made it a very peaceful weekend. We would stay again. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Burchfield Branch Park is located near Adger, AL and provides great access to Holt Lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway northeast of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway consists of six lakes with a total length of 457 miles and 39,800 surface acres of water. This facility also offers great amenities, access to the water, limited hiking trails, and opportunities to view wildlife. Water front sites are numbers 1 through 7. Best site on the water is 6. Stay away from site 4 as it is configured incorrectly with hook ups on the wrong side of the RV. If you opt for the waterfront sites beware that the nearest full service bath facility is a little bit away. There is a toilet at the entrance to the loop, though. Both facilities were always in a high state of cleanliness. Don’t forget anything as the nearest respectable “Resupply Center” is far. There is a small country store at the turn off to Lock 17 Road. This is really a nice place to get away from it all. I had no cell phone or TV coverage. This was my second visit and the service/facility was consistent. Cost per night $11.00 with the geezer pass. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

It is a very nice park, clean and quiet. We stayed on Site 6 right on the water. There was a nice deck right out my front door. Sites 1 through 8 are river front and the rest are off the river. Sites 6 and 8 seem to be the best sites on the river. I would have given the park a solid 10 rating, but no internet or phone (cell) service. I know it’s camping, but some of us still are working. It should not be that difficult nor expensive to run Wi-Fi. Bring everything you need as it’s a long way to the Wal-Mart in Hueytown. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the prettiest campgrounds we have ever been to. The people who work at the campground are very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were spotless, the entire park is very well taken care of and well managed. On one of the days we were there the weather was bad, we heard a knock at the door, it was one of the hosts with an umbrella guiding us to a brick building with no windows. We certainly appreciated that. A tip is to bring all your supplies with you, it's a long trip to a Wal-Mart. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

I cannot think of anything bad about this Park. Every one we talked there running the park were the nicest we had meet. Lots of good views. Nice small creek runs behind most camp sites. Lots are very wide and level but fit a 40ft RV easy. You will love it here. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in site 4 on the water which was a tight fit for the slides on the fifth wheel but manageable. Beautiful views of the river with the leaves just starting to turn. The park is a bit out of the way which isn't a bad thing. Our guests had to walk about 3/4 of a mile to the camp site since they arrived after 10:00 PM which is when the entry gate is closed. Would be nice if they could install a gate with key code access. Very nice park. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow, this is a beautiful park! Very nice campsites with lantern hanger and decks. US Army Corps certainly did this one right! Very nice, very clean bathhouse with roomy showers. One of the camp hosts has property nearby and raises free-range, happy chickens. When you are here, ask him to sell you a dozen farm-fresh eggs. Watch carefully and you will see a few groundhogs in the wooded areas of the park. The only thing I didn't like is something that is typical of many National or State parks: neither my cell phone nor my wireless internet would work. Even with those issues, I will return to camp here again We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Motorhome.

A very nice COE park on the river. The park is a long way from any major town and is very remote. There are 8 sites on the river. The balance of the sites are in a wooded area along a creek and are very shady. Some are very private and some not so much. Some sites have wooden decks overlooking the river or the creek. These are especially nice. The bath house is the best and cleanest I've ever seen at a campground. The entrance road is very steep so be sure you've got enough brake and engine to deal with that. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Our latest visit to this great little park was no different than previous visits. The hosts are extremely polite and the park is very well maintained. We stayed on the water and really enjoyed ourselves. Definitely worth the trip out here. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. It took us about an hour to get from I-59 to the park, but it was well worth it. We did not have a site on the river, but were a short walk from it. We had a wonderful wooden deck on our site and complete shade. This park offers a small beach, tons of opportunity for fishing/boating…etc. The roads are paved throughout the park, so there were kids riding bikes, scooters, skateboards… Each site has a grill and a fire ring. There were 35 sites and the bathhouse we used only had 2 showers for men/women. There were a few times when my husband / 3 boys had to wait in line or go at a later time to get a shower. As far as the women’s showers, I went really early or late at night and did not have to wait. We were not able to get cell phone service, internet service, or cable which was not a problem for my husband and I, but the kids complained some. We did have X-Box and lots of movies… I hope to get to use this park again!! We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Another great Army Corp of Engineers park! There are eight waterfront sites. The remainder are hillside sites with a creek winding through them. You do not have a view of the river from the hillside sites. All sites have paved pads, picnic tables, lantern hook, grills and fire rings. Some sites have decks that overlook the creek that flows by. The majority of the sites are shady. Although there are seven first-come first-serve sites, I would have a reservation before going.

The following review was accidentally posted under The Landing Zone in Arco, ID: Loved this park - very clean, neat and comfortable. Nice yards and shade trees at each site. Several sites have 50 amp and they are upgrading more. WiFi was excellent. Rv'ers receive a free breakfast of hot cakes and eggs in the cafe which has a full breakfast and dinner menu (ribs and smoked potatoes). Craters of the Moon NP and EBR-1 are each 18 miles away. Close to town and services. Owners are very friendly. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice COE park. Extremely long drive from town through coal mines, but a nice setting once you get there. Site 7 is probably the best one in the park. We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Motorhome.

The view at this park is fantastic. The water sites have decks that go right up to the water. It would have been perfect except we weren't able to get cell service or satellite TV and only 1 station on antenna. It is also pretty remote. If you want solitude it's wonderful!

We have just returned from Burchfield Branch. We really enjoyed our stay with a few exceptions. The campground was completely full this weekend, which meant that there was not enough showers and hot water for everyone. There are only 2 showers for men and 2 showers for women, which when the campground is fully booked is obviously not enough!! We did not have hot showers the last 2 nights that we were there. The scenery is beautiful and the fishing is pretty good. The only thing keeping me from rating this a 10 is the lack of showers or full hook ups. We will return to visit and hopefully have a hot shower!! We camped at Burchfield Branch Park COE in a Motorhome.
