4 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

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.

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

We camp here once every few years, and it is still a great, clean campground. Water and electric worked fine. Sites spacious, fairly level to level. Trails are extensive and abundant. Excellent bicycling roads. Camp hosts friendly. Cannot beat the price. C-Spire phone service was one or two bars with back and forth 1x/3G service. Stargazing very good, easy to see the Milky Way, and galaxies looked bright in my telescope. Unlike a few years ago, the place has been discovered by residents of Pensacola, Fort Walton/Destin, Panama City, Montgomery, and Dothan, and is a packed weekend getaway. With no reservations available and a first come/serve campsite system, arriving early on Friday may be a must, or you might be dry camping in the A Loop, which would not be that bad in nice weather, and it would only be $6.00. About 70% of all campers left by noon on Sunday morning, causing a camper-jam at the only dump station. As an earlier reviewer noted, law enforcement does come through. An irritating part of this particular outing was people playing radios full blast while U of Alabama and Auburn U were playing football. The volume could have been a bit lower. Another nuisance is a handful of motorcyclists revving their motors for the sake of revving. More unnecessary noise. Nevertheless, the Great Horned Owls ruled the night. We will come again, but may take a weekday or two off to avoid the weekend crowds. - The Happy Traveler

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

This is a nice quiet place to stay. Right on a lake with lots of shade. The only downside is that there are no sewer hookups at the camp sights but the owner will drain them for you for a nominal fee then there is a drain right outside the gate. Overall a great place to stay. - ddabbey

Tranquil setting. Quite and relaxing. Sites on lake side are very large. Almost all sites are shaded. We stayed 5 days and never needed our awning out. Two docks for fishing and swimming. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Bathrooms are atrocious. Suspect there has been no updating since the 70s. Mostly clean, but pretty grungy overall. Never saw them cleaned whilst here. General daily maintenance very lacking. Waste bins throughout camp were full when we arrived and were never emptied despite full time on site hosts. Not much to do or see in the area other than water fun at campsite. Washer/dryer were padlocked and were $3.00 each. Would have given a higher rating but for the bathhouse. - AFDTrio
