A great place for an overnight stop on the way to Florida. No amenities like a pool, but the sites are all pull throughs so we didn't have to unhook. The sites are stone, and generally level. We would stay again if passing through. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice, convenient park on the west side of Interstate 65. It is very quiet even though you are able to see the Interstate if you park down past the office. There are some sites beside the office that are level and longer, but you will hear the highway. The roads and sites are all gravel. The power is very good as is the free WiFi. One caution is the 70# water pressure, so a regulator is needed unless you have a newer rig. It appears the park only serves self-contained rigs. The park is lightly used, so getting a space is almost assured. This is more a stop-over campground or a place to stay while visiting Huntsville, AL, 29 miles to the north. The park has one price; $30/night, cash or check.

We would stay here again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Garmin knows the location if you use a campground search. If you are entering an address, you MUST reflect US Hwy 31 NORTH, then use the search for valid numbers and click on the 1699 - 16719. GPS does not k now the 1757 number. The park is at exit 354. If you choose another, (US Hwy 31 or 31 south), one of these will find the number but you will not find the park.

An excellent stop over just off I-65. Large pull thru's. Good hook ups and WIFI. Athens has all kinds of good restaurants. Lot spacing was nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stay overnight or for a few nights. There was a group of 4-5 campers traveling together and this worked our great for us. We stayed when we were headed south and again on our return trip north. Owner was very friendly and very accommodating. We are planning to stay again next year on our trip south and maybe even another visit this year to check our the area.

The sites are all pull-through and most are extra long for big rig comfort. This campground is very easy to get to from the interstate and very easy for getting back on the road. Sites are full hookup. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Travel Park is easy access from the highway. The internal roads are pea stone which is probably good in the rain. It was pretty dry when we were there and a bit dusty. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and had no difficulty navigating the little park. We were in the sites out front near the road which were plenty long. The sites are sort of level but the stone surface is uneven in places. We were able to level with the air bag system in our coach without difficulty. I imagine you could level up with pods but you may need to move around a bit. This is a bare bones operation providing a quiet night's sleep. We did not use any of the rest room facilities so I cannot comment. Also did not use the WiFi so no comment there. We would return here in the future if we needed a place to stop for the night. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

I stayed at this park once before and not much has changed except the cost went from 25 to 30 dollars. It's still a good spot for a overnight stop on the way north or south. All sites are Full hook-up pull thru. Plenty of room between sites so you're not sitting on top of your neighbor. As mentions in other reviews the water pressure requires a regulator. The WIFI was the best I've had anywhere. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on/off Hwy 65. Nice, quiet park with all "pull through" sites with water, sewer and 30 or 50amp. No bathhouse. Set up for "overnight" travelers. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent campground for an overnight stop or short stay. Easy after hours check-in, just stop at office, fill out short registration envelope, add payment, and deposit in lock box. Site number not needed so no need to pick out your site before registering. Just pick out an empty one after you register. No need to be picky as all are easy to navigate, pull-thru sites of adequate size and spacing for most RVs, level, & full hook-up. Campground is far enough from the interstate to dampen road noise but close enough for convenience. Nice owner/operator lives adjacent. Only con is that there are no trees so would be hot in the summer but even this shouldn't be a problem if all you want is an overnight stop. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Truck Camper.

Great over night stop. Don't use GPS, this park seems to be in GPS limbo land. Located at the end of I-65 exit 354. Very easy. Friendly owner. All pull thrus, full hook ups. Good water pressure. Easy in/out. Not sure if restrooms, showers, etc., didn't check to see if available. We have stayed here twice, would stay here again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This site is on a family farm. Very easy access from I65. All sites are pull-throughs. Owners are friendly and the WiFi is good. Water pressure is high so use a regulator. This is a great stop on the way south/north. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gem of an overnight stop located right off I-65. Cash or check is required for payment and the owner was very friendly and helpful and lives on the adjacent property. No frills but nice, long pull through sites with full hook ups if needed. There are no trees but we prefer that. We chose a long pull thru with water and electric only as we only hooked up electric. Easy on/off the interstate and even though it was so close, noise was not an issue. Did not use internet but our Verizon service worked well. Must be self contained as we did not see any bathhouse or laundry. We will stop here again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on, easy off; great for overnight stay at $25.00 cash or check. Honor system when no one there. Three rows; motorhomes use row B for hookups. Full hookups. No trees so satellite worked fine.

We would stay again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.
