1 Park near Alexander City, Alabama
Nov 2015 - $63.00
We called a couple of days ahead for a one night reservation with a 50 amp full hookup site at this state park for an early November weekend. The lady on the phone told us we wouldn't need reservations, as they had plenty of space, and did not reserve specific spaces. We arrived shortly after noon on Friday, and found that what we had been told was true. Of the 39 spaces with 50 amp service, only 4 were occupied when we arrived. We were able to select our site from those that were open. We had not been told what the rate was, and were shocked at the $63 price for one night (and this was after taxes, and with the senior discount).
We selected site 176, which was a very long and wide concrete pad with a nice lake view. The hookups were at the back of the pad, and luckily our electric cable was just long enough to reach, without having to break out the extension. A 25' water hose was also just long enough. The sewer connection was also at the back of the pad, and if we had needed to use it, we would have had to connect an extension to reach it.
This section of the campground is new, and there was a notice at the main office that the campground WiFi was unavailable because of the renovations. We have a strong WiFi booster, and found a campground WiFi signal, but even with our booster, it was not strong enough to do simple web searches and email. Cable TV was provided, however there were only a few channels available, and they were quite grainy. It has been raining off and on during our stay, and the local network channels are unavailable more often than not.
Although the parking space is nice and well maintained, the price is much too high for what is available. We will not be coming back for a return visit. - Mike Hopkins

No WiFi except in new section. Lots of camping slots. All are back in. Good family place. Lots of swimming and kids parks available. Very quick service if needed. No sewer hook up next to lake except in new section. One of the best parks I have visited. - br549vi

This is a huge park with hundreds of sites. We chose the new premium sites with 50 amp and full hookups. These sites are on the water with lots of grass between sites. The pad is concrete with picnic table, bbq and room for your vehicle. Lake Martin has over 800 miles of shoreline and is one of the most beautiful lakes we have ever seen. There is a full service marina, fishing piers, numerous ramps and spacious roads. I will stay here again. - ranchoddellago
