6 Parks near Andalusia, Alabama
Apr 2009 - $15.00
Owned by the Alabama/West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Located near MM 8.5 north of the AL/FL line on SR 137, just north of Wing. Pros: Extremely quiet (although during camp events, that might change). Restrooms and showers very clean. Bicycling along camp roads easy, fun. Beautiful swimming pool, bathhouse. Lake canoeing and paddle boats. Sand beach across lake in Conecuh National Forest. Internet available in lobby. Staff extremely friendly. Food service during camp events (fee). Sites grassy to leafy. Cons: Sites nearest the gymnasium have sewer, those opposite do not. Sewer holes, dump station in need of major upgrade. Pine cones everywhere. Some sites would be difficult to negotiate with trailer or big rig due to narrows and trees. Cell phone coverage spotty at best, better out near the highway. We would camp here again. - The Happy Traveler

This is a very scenic campground spaciously sited amongst trees on the shores of Open Pond. The well maintained campground is located about 19 miles from Andalusia, Alabama. Our site had 50 amp electric and water hookups. The campground does have a dump station. We were camping in 36' Class A with a tow vehicle.
The scale of the 30-acre pond is such that White Egrets and Blue Herons could be watched as they flew from place to place around the shoreline of the small lake throughout the day. Also, plenty of park squirrels to watch if one wants to take a break from a good read. A relaxing afternoon was enjoyed walking along the lakeshore to the 1930s-built CCC shelter and back to the campground. There were two docks over the water. Fishing boats are allowed with electric motors only, and the area was nicely natural and quiet during our visit in the early spring. On evenings with little wind the pond's calm water would reflect the evening lit shoreline trees upon the pond's surface creating a beautiful golden setting full of yellow, orange, and reddish colors.
Happy Travels ... hope the information is helpful. - W Review

We visit Open Pond in Conecuh National Forest every few years. There have been no changes with regard to the quality or quality of amenities, both of which are good to excellent. Unlike our last visit, which was on a big college football weekend (TVs and radios blaring from noon to 11 PM), we camped on Thanksgiving week. It was peaceful and relaxing. About half to two thirds of capacity. Still first come/serve. Pond level was much higher and drought is gone. USFS personnel drove through a few times. Camp hosts friendly. Never saw Covington County SO patrolling for unoccupied sites as someone mentioned several years ago. Nearest small country store is now six miles away, nearer store has closed. OTA antenna picked up 8 stations. Sprint phone was two or one bars, slow data. Still one of our favorite places to get away to. - The Happy Traveler

We have camped here several times in a pop-up camper and a Travel Trailer. We recommend fall or winter camping here as there are no water activities to do during the summer. There are walking trails, fishing, and paved roads for bike riding. It is great for families and group camping. There are open areas that accommodate group camping and there are more private areas that can accommodate privacy if desired. No reservations available for camp sites, so on long/holiday weekends be prepared for it to fill up quickly. Fire pits are great! Bathrooms are clean but are not in controlled temperatures. When extremely cold outside, sometimes the top is boarded up to help maintain heat. There are not stores close for those "last minute things" so make sure you have what you need. If you do not, you will have to travel about 15 miles to the closest Wal-Mart. We will camp here again. - mastertech13

Found this place trying to avoid hurricane in Florida. Happily surprised! On a lake, nice big sites (parked on asphalt, but large grass site, shade trees), great Internet, over 150 cable channels, new owners-super nice people and working on making it a better. Bathrooms have been remodeled and are nice. Would come out of our way again to be here. Nice "camping". - mrbones0427

They have done a lot of work and are continuing to fix this place up. The bathrooms and showers are brand new. The electrics were all 30 amp before, but they are putting in 50 amp. Our spot had 30 amp but was fine for our needs. The grounds are clean, except for a few sand spurs. Sites were spaced nicely apart. No sewer and didn't see or try to dump so no info for that. Didn't use the cable. The new owners are great and working hard. We will be back. - Curt F

This campground needs some TLC. It has good potential but has become run down. Bathrooms and showers was filthy dirty and they have not been cleaned in a long time. The power box was missing screws and 110 amp was burned and taped over. Office and site manger was dingy dirty and definitely need a women's touch as my wife said. Only good things that I notice was cable and WiFi. Nice and quiet as we was one of two campers. If Owners read this please invest some time and money as this could be a gold mine. - Biggyrat

Gantt Lake RV Park has the most helpful and friendly owners/managers of all the parks that we have had the pleasure to visit. We have traveled from Alaska to the Alabama and are now enjoying full time RVing. This park was very quiet and relaxing. The facilities were very clean. We really enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and watching the boaters, the fishermen catching fish as well as the colorful kyacks as they glide through the amazing cypress tress. We will definately be back soon! - Lane S.

We camp at Gantt Lake RV Park quiet frequently. We love this quiet, friendly, safe park. Fun to Vacation and relax here. We water ski, wake board, kayak. They have two laundry rooms, extremely clean heated and cooled bath and showers. They also have cable, wifi, ice and a club house for our family events. You will love this park. Their owners own and manage the park and are always available. - Lane S.

A really quiet and clean RV park. The owners are very friendly and helpful in setting up your RV if you need help. They have a park host on site as well as ice, propane, and two laundry rooms. We stayed there for a week's vacation. We brought our boat and was able to rent a boat slip, which was so convenient. The lake is beautiful, especially the sunsets. We fished and swam as well. We met a lot of nice people and cannot wait to go back. - Vicky S.

Sites are mostly with beautiful lake view. Sites Reasonably sized and well spaced. Grounds well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. Cable TV is great with numerous channels. Smaller park that we enjoy immensely. During October 2015 stay friends of the park put on a great scarecrow display along the walking/hiking trails. - sp123

This is a very nice park. We are in space 29, which is a very wide and long gravel pad. We are in a 41' motorhome with slides on both sides, and we have plenty of room to accommodate our exercise pens that we use for our pups. The park has WiFi, but it is slow, and the signal is weak. We have a strong WiFi booster, but even with a good signal, pages load slowly, but they do load. The park also has excellent cable, with over 100 channels, which is something you don't usually see in a state park. The town of Opp is rather small, and has a few fast food restaurants, and only one grocery store.
We are staying here only one night this trip in route to our next destination. We will most definitely stay here again, and will likely spend more time here the next time we come through. - Mike Hopkins

The park is a beautiful park and well maintained. The Wi-Fi was excellent and cable was more than adequate. At the entry station the ranger was most helpful. We were very impressed with a state park having all of benefits that this park has. The only bad thing was, that we were invaded by tiny black ants. - morrison

I gave a satisfactory rating because the park is in transition from state to city and there are some maintenance issues because of it. State has pulled out the laundry facilities and slacked off on maintenance. Lake side sites were $35 while across the road were $28. All sites have water & electric, level and tree lined. Our B was the smallest camper there, about 4 other sites had 5'ers, all other sites were empty. 28 total sites. We had a beautiful lakefront site. Hope this park doesn't fall into disrepair. - garmp

Great State Park on Lake Jackson. Awesome views, great lake for kayaking. Sites are dirt and gravel, somewhat level, lots of trees and moss. Bath house nice and clean. Sites are close with a few pull-thru. Stayed in a 40 ft Motor Home. Will stay again. - gleLOAL

Friendly staff. Most sites are back-in. Beautiful setting with views of the lake from all sites.
Cable was fuzzy. Satellite depends on site due to the trees.
The sewer on my site was backed-up and unusable. - jnateg
