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.

Tips for other Campers:

Restaurants and fuel located close by in the town of Athens.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Be careful turning in; requires wide turn.

This is a good spot to stop for the night but wouldn't make it a destination place. Absolutely no frills. Owner was very friendly, nice long pull thru's & site was pretty level. Would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Great place right off the exit and turn in! Perfect for overnight stops while traveling. Clean sites and all pull thru ones! Only suggestion is to have a coupler and an extra sewer hose, as some are a bit away. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park on the way to Gulf Shores, AL and also on the way home. It is a very convenient place to stop for the night and easily accessable from the highway. The gentleman who took our reservation on the phone and checked us in when we arrived is extremely friendly and helpful. The sites are level gravel with full hookup. We did not see any public showers or restrooms available so this is not a good place to stop if you are not traveling in something with it's own facilities. It is a great place to stop for the night while traveling. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly and helpful host. I should have noted that there were no restrooms or shower facilities before I reserved. Oh well. It was certainly easy enough for me to wash my hair at my own outdoor shower in my swimsuit. Over the air TV channels were plentiful and Wi-Fi signal was excellent. Host very friendly. Check or cash only. Very easy to find off I-65, Exit 354. No shade and gravel sites weren't as level as some I've been in, but plenty long. I would've rated higher if there had been restrooms, but would certainly stay again. 3 miles down the road are all the shopping you need. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This very basic park with no amenities is adequate for a short stay. Friendly and helpful owner. Water pressure is 70psi so regulators are necessary. Wifi was slow, but adequate and surprisingly robust enough to stream music during the day, not at night. No trees, so satellite connection was easy. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

There should be more parks like this. Reasonably priced and perfect for an overnight stop. Friendly owner, All pull-thru full hook-up sites and very easy access from I-65. Water pressure is high and we were told we should use a regulator which I do anyway. We will stay here again when we pass this way. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with all prior positive statements. This is not a destination, it's a stopover for a night or two. Basic no frills campground. It does have Wi-Fi but weak. Verizon strong. The sites are an odd mix. All of them are long, very long, but some have utilities at the back of the site meaning unhooking is mandatory. Not what you want in an over night stop. Sites are level. Some turns are tight but we had no trouble with our 42' motorhome. Road in and out has some potholes, which I suspect will be fixed if the rain ever stops. We would stop again. Also close to Huntsville which has much to see and do. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a travel park, a great place to overnight or spend some time if you are self-contained. Our rate was based on a weekly rate of $125. Long pull-through sites. We stayed here a week while visiting family. The owner is very helpful and reminded us to use our water regulator as the park has 70 PSI water pressure. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again.

Great overnight park. You get a nice long pull thru with full hookups for $25 (cash or check only). Off the interstate but very quiet. Roads and sites are gravel, a little dusty, with good spacing of grass between each sites. Some leveling required at sites. No laundry. Wi-Fi is free and worked great during our stay. No trees so using satellite is not a problem. Owner is very friendly and helpful. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.
