4 Parks near Auburn, Alabama
Apr 2015 - $40.00
We stopped here overnight on our way home from Florida. It is very convenient to Interstate 85. The people that worked there were very friendly. We stayed in a pull through site that overlooked baseball fields down below. There are some sites lower in the park that overlook a creek. There is a steep hill down to them though. There are some tight turns in the park too, but we saw several large motorhomes there. Overall it was a nice place with full hookups and seemed very clean. We were not there long, but we felt safe and enjoyed the campground. - Echelon73

The park and sites were nice and very clean. Our only complaint was that their office hours were practically non-existent. A phone number was your only contact between office hours which were:
M-F 9am-10am, 4pm-6pm
Saturday 9-10 am
Sunday by appt after church.
We had to pay by credit card via phone call. They were very nice, just wish there was someone there to answer questions, etc. - Cinmar Chichi

We stayed 3 nights to visit the area.
The park is located near I-85 with easy access along good paved roads. The entrance was a little narrow. The parking area for check in had a significant slope.
The park facilities were built by the CCC. It shows in the building construction and age. The park has several day use areas including extensive BMX bicycle trails throughout the park.
The interior roads are paved but narrow. The sites are crushed gravel, generally level but lined with poles causing them to be narrow. Not many pull through sites. Some pull through sites required climbing a short but steep incline to reach the parking area. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance and vegetation.
There was an extensive tree canopy blocking any satellite reception. Fortunately we were assigned Site 20 which had a good view to the South for satellite. Sites on either side of 20 may provide satellite reception with a portable dish.
Park map claimed there were 3 broadcast channels. Couldn't get any of them.
Our Verizon hotspot reception was good.
No designated pet area but there was sufficient distance along the park roads to walk dogs. Don't remember if there were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. There were garbage cans around to dispose of waste. There were dogs off leash both in the campground areas and the day use areas.
The only dumpster was near the entrance to the first campground loop.
We were invaded by little black ants!
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter but the bathhouses were designated as shelters.
Would not stay here again. - bsb814

This is a great park, not that big, but still has a lot to offer. I would rate it higher except for the lack of cable or WiFi. Will stay here again when we are through here. - SMOKE665

Great state park very near the Auburn University campus. Easy and quick approach from I-85 down a straight and gently rolling two-lane road. Park roads and campground loops are paved and RV sites are crushed rock. Spots are relatively level, wide, and should be deep enough for almost any rig. A few spots are perpendicular to the road and backing in a big rig might be challenging. The sewer connection on most of the sites was in the back, so you might need extra hose if you have a midship dump valve. Most sites are very well shaded and have plenty of room between to afford some privacy. The McVay Loop bathhouse was always clean, and the staff and host were friendly and accommodating. Firewood and ice are available at the park office. There is no camp store but a Walmart, Winn Dixie and many restaurants are within 3 miles of the park on the north side of I-85. The park has a great system of hiking trails though they could be marked better. I attended Auburn and spent a lot of time here during college. The park gets very busy with day use students and can be quite noisy on fall and spring weekends, so be ready for it. If you want to stay here on a home football weekend you have to get reservations many months in advance. The website lists reservation call dates for home weekends. The only negative comment I have about the park is the noise level from traffic outside the park. You can hear it quite well from both camping loops up until about 9 pm. Other than that, it was a very enjoyable visit and we will return in the future. - User1054

Thought it was expensive for what was there. Without Good Sam Discount, it would be $50/nite! Concrete pad, gravel driveway. WiFi is good. No cable working at the time we were there. No pool, no playground. Nice clubhouse. This park seems more geared toward Auburn football season. Mostly, seasonal people. If full, this park would be very close to your neighbor. The grill is placed to share with your neighbors right next to the sewage hookup!
No fire ring, picnic tables sparsely situated around the grounds. - Sunne

All utilities, Wi-Fi, cable are excellent. Some pads are cement, others are gravel. All look quite level. Reasonable grass. Some friendly, but loose dogs that seem to be permanent residents. Check web site for various rates and services. Call ahead and get site number and provide credit card. Owner isn't always on property; he has a phone number to call. About 10 minutes off the freeway. Would stay here again. - 26Isata

Level gravel site, good power and water. No cable. We were at the top of the hill. It had rained buckets for a few days before. The area was very wet. Out site was fine but many would have been a problem. A special event was going on at the University so the park had buses running into town. Friendly staff. - CC Happy Camper

A great location, convenient to campus. Much larger than it at first appears from the street with many shady spots towards the back. The bathroom is fairly new and well-cared for. Lots of tailgaters that book for the whole football season. - ausc59

This is a huge RV park (over 500 sites) and is primarily used by those visiting Auburn University (especially during football season). Most sites have full hookups with city water. There are some beautiful sites with lots of shade trees. The owners (Mathan & Jill Holt) were most accommodating and wanted to be sure we were comfortable. There are two things keeping this park from being a 10 in my book. The first thing is not having a nice bathhouse and laundry facility but they have a very, very nice one under construction which will be completed in May. The second thing is the proximity (several hundred yards away from the front of the park) to the CSX main rail line. There are numerous trains that pass both day and night but if you ask to stay in the back of the park which is a half mile or more from the tracks, you don't hear it as much. We have and will stay here again. The park is on Hwy 14 West of Auburn and is 5 to 6 miles off I-85, exit 51. - GICUR12
