Us Midwesterners wanted to go somewhere warm for the Christmas week. We used this website to search for campgrounds. Our only requirements were sewer, river access, a roomy site and located in a warmer, winter climate. We searched from the Louisiana coastline to South Carolina for a campground that sounded like the best place to go. After days of research, earth/campsite maps and reading reviews, this sounded like the best place to go! This is an Indian Reservation and wildlife preserve owned by The Poarch Band of Creek Indians. My email request for reservations was answered quickly and just as previous reviews, we got a total steal for the week @ $150.00 for W/E/S ($21.42 per day for a week). Google Maps brought us directly to the address with no issues. As we arrived later in the day on a Saturday, our parking passes were at the gate. We were placed on site 28, but were told we could take whichever site we’d like. 28 was AWESOME! It’s an asphalt type pad - one board off level to the left. Anyone that complains about un-level sites is a baby, IMO. The site is very spacious and overlooks a small lake to the rear. Part of the lake is the ‘swimming-hole’, which looks like fun for the kiddies. There are some sites with large sites and others that are somewhat grouped. There was no one else here. A few ‘permanent’ looking sites, but that was it. There is no Wifi, but I got fairly good roaming signal with Sprint. I could email & internet, but too slow for a stream. There are a few T.V. stations available. Water quality and pressure was fine. Horse stalls looked nice. The restrooms/showers were large and clean. There was a soda machine and laundry for $1.25. The Big Escambia Creek winds through the reservation. It was too cold to tube, but it SURE looks like a nice ride. We were going to canoe, but the day after we arrived, it rained so much the creek rose about 7 feet! It would have been white water rafting!! Stargazing was awesome; saw Venus and the Milky Way. Be sure Google Sky is loaded before coming. We walked every trail available to us, but the ‘good’ trails were across the creek, which we couldn’t cross because of the height of the water, not the park’s fault. However, the other trails were nice also. We have two dogs that thoroughly enjoyed the over 5 hours of walking / sniffing time. We did go to the casino, as the weather was bad. It was fun for us non-gamblers... Won $30! Nice, friendly people and you could drink for free if you were playing, SWEET!! The town of Atmore is about ½ hour away. Sadly, the economy has hit them hard and there’s not a whole lot to do there. Rowland Tires repaired our flat trailer tire for $10! We would surely come back to this location.

This review is from the winter. During the summer I'm sure this park has an entirely different feel. If your considering this campground for the winter be sure to call and speak to them about price as they were very generous with me and want you to experience the park so you can tell others. You should also know that the GPS street address is not accurate, keep an eye out for their signs and follow them or ask for the coordinates. Found the park secluded, quiet and with so much space to explore, 6000 plus acres. The Poarch Creek Indians are reclaiming the gravel mining area that preceded this campground and construction is still in progress. I felt great knowing that my money was being used for conservation and the construction is not a problem and located away from the current camp sites. The vision for this property is still in process and its a grand one. They already have an educational program in the summer and a box turtle habitat. I am a nature nut so this is all important to me. I loved hearing the coyotes howl at night and the owls sign me to bed and being bathed in unobstructed moonlight and stars. To what most of you are interested in.The sites are large, gravel and level with trees on most. They vary from private to appropriate for camping together and have a horse camp section. The bathrooms are not extravagant but serve the purpose and the showers were hot. Laundry was fine. The river that this campground is on is beautiful and there is a beach with swimming, jump platform, volleyball, and cabanas. Tubing, canoe and kayak rentals are available. There is a stable and trails are in great abundance. This is a big place and I spoke with riders who had gotten lost but the GM of the park is awesome and saw they hadn't come back and went and rescued them. There are also ponds everywhere and fishing is allowed. If you are looking for a family park in the summer this is an awesome place. They also have pavilions for rent near the beach. If you are looking for peace and quiet in the off season you can find it here. Its only 10 minutes to the Casino, which I was surprised I liked. Staff is very friendly and the design is something to see. They allow smoking but he air system is so good you don't notice it. The buffet was good and you drink free if your playing. Atmore itself doesn't have a lot to offer so come for the nature and then when your natured out go drop some change at the casino and get a free Tshirt for signing up for the players club. We camped at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve in a Motorhome.

Maagnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve includes 5,000 acres of scenic forest and 50 lakes, cared for by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. The campground stretches for about 2.5 miles along the banks of pristine Big Escambia Creek, with sites very nicely located among a pine forest, the little lakes, and the stream. This area was once heavily quarried for gravel and,the lakes are the remains of the barrow pits. It is popular for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming. The bath-house was large and clean and it has laundry facilities. It is in a fairly remote area but only a few miles from I-65. We were there during the week to use their canoe launch areas and it was very quiet. Don't know if it is noisy on weekends. They do have horse stalls also and we saw some equestrienne campers. Full service sites $30 per day. It is located at 24 Big Creek Road, Atmore, AL 36502. We camped at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve in a Travel Trailer.
