Very friendly and helpful staff which includes a park ranger. The park was full this weekend with a group of archery competition and the Dixie division military group showing their military replica vehicles. The park was very clean and they now have sewer connections on all sites.
The park has a pool, the ironworks furnace and lots of trails as well as a couple of cabins that have artist and leather crafts. They also have great cabins we have stayed in on other occasions and bingo on Friday nights. Spaces range from close togetherness to lots of extra room depending on area.
Great place to enjoy quiet weekend and meet and make new friends. - Tweety522

Whoever set up the camping at this park has never been to another campground. We paid for an "electric and water" site. Turns out it was primitive camping on the side of a hill with dips, dirt, mud, rocks, and fallen branches but no actual sites. The water and electric were a few connections spread out over the entire space. There was no spot to camp with an RV where you could reach both, and nothing actually level or cleared off. We ended up paying extra for a site with sewer (we had no need for a sewer site). These sites looked like RV parks being small and close together but without the concrete pad.
We asked for a map of the trails and got an old handwritten map that they said wasn't accurate with small lettering and had been copied so many times we couldn't read it. If they have bathroom and/or showers here, I never found them. They aren't near the campsites. There's a pool here that they make a big deal that it's "clean" so that was scary. We don't plan to return here. - J and C

Extremely nice staff. Beautiful little state park. We stayed in the 'hollow' which has water and electric. Huge width on sites. A few might take a big rig. Lots of trees and a fire pit on site. Roads are dirt and narrow. Sites are a bit tricky to get into but worth it. Great little trail in the woods to walk. They do not take reservations but you can call and find out availability. Restrooms were older but clean. We would definitely stay here again. The rate we had was for Seniors. Best deal we have had in a while! Wifi and cell service is very weak but usable. - joans8849

This is a busy, family oriented campground with a lot going on all the time. There is a small train for the kids with a very loud engine that runs during the day. Lots of kids on bikes. Sites are pretty close together. One huge negative for us is that it's not big rig friendly. Not for class A diesel pushers anyway. If you get assigned a site in campground 3, it's on the other side of a small bridge with weight restrictions. Our coach at 36,000 pounds was too heavy to cross. We ended up at a makeshift campsite with only 30A power. It worked for the one night we needed. Interior roads are pretty tight as well. Verizon signal was one bar. - RoadtripImages dot com

Hard park to rate. The historical part is spectacular. The park itself and the tree cover is beautiful. Lovely streams flow through the park and between camping loops. Many other reviews go into good detail on park activities and the historical aspect so I won't repeat. The downside for me was the campground part. I can't imagine camping here on a busy weekend and in a full park. Many of the back-in sites in the third loop have absolutely no buffer between sites. No room for fire rings. Picnic tables are small and sometimes oddly placed. Longer RVs will be challenged to find a spot, especially for their tow vehicle or toad, too, unless they luck into a pull-through site. Campground loop road pitted in spots, so drive nice and slow. First-come, first-served, so arrive early if you can. Over-the-air TV signal good; Verizon signal slow.
Only a few miles from I-20 south of Birmingham, but very windy 2-lane road to get there. Even longer windy road if you take the exit off of the B'ham beltway. It's doable, but take it slow. - aowcarol

Huge park with great museum about the ironworks. No reservations taken. We arrived and found out it was spring break and the park was packed! RVs very close in full hookup area. We were directed to Lot 3 and found a pull through-where the spots are nearby but not as close as in other areas. As a first time camper to this park, direction signs within the campground repainted and at checkin an information sheet of hiking trails , times miniature train and ice cream shop operate would be helpful. Checkin person said "things are crazy here". - sp123

***Out of business*** This campground sold out to Loves Truck Stop and is no longer in business. Loves has demolished the campground and is in the process of turning it into a parking lot for 18 wheelers. - Luv2rvbig

Okay overnight stop for us, though it's a little past its prime. Friendly, helpful owner. Wi-Fi works well (after resetting router), good cable TV. Gravel roads in fairly good repair and our gravel site was "levelable" with a bit of lumber. Some have park model utility set-ups, but ours was standard RV style. Shaded, but pretty noisy. Kind of hard to find. It's behind the Love's truck stop. Apparently, the State has plans for the right-of-way, so the sign is pretty much invisible. Call park for directions. Wouldn't make a point of going back, but okay for a night. - Sonic

Very friendly host. That was the best park of this park. Many rundown permenent sites. We had a long pull through so we did not need to unhook, and we are about 55 feet long. It is tight getting through the park. It's about 1/4 mile off interstate, so a good overnight stop. There is a nice small pool. Cable TV was good. Way overpriced, even with the Good Sam discount. If this were a half price campground, we might consider staying here again, just for an overnight. They are building a Loves truck stop that backs right up to the park. This could add to the already loud noise from the interstate. - BLT101

This was OK for a quick overnight but would not necessarily suggest for more than that. My husband went into the restroom to take a shower and there was a drunk man passed out against the door. - Cathy Roark

Across the road from the office and is just a large parking lot type area with hookups. No shade. OK for overnight... that is about it. - USarmyxray

The park is split into 2 sections. We were in the section the street from the office. The owner was very nice and pleasant. It looks more like a parking lot than a CG, but everything worked and it was OK for 1 night. During football season there is probably no space available. - quilt lady

Took 3 days to contact someone about reservations. They don't normally have pull through to accommodate a 60 ft total, motorhome + toad, but the manager found a site, 34, that worked for us. Seemed to be mostly campers for workers in the area, their sites were neat. No amenities except for a dog area. - dlfishing

During football season this park has two sections: one for seasonal tailgaters (you won't get into it if you don't lease it for the season), and one for everyone else. Both are gravel, no trees, no tables. Most of non-tailgater section (where we were) is occupied by people working temporarily in Tuscaloosa and other long-termers. While the tailgater section is angled pull-throughs with more space between units, the other section is tightly packed un-angled pull-throughs with little maneuvering room. The pedestals are shared between spaces, thus you are back-to-back and front-to-front with your neighbours. If you don't like interstate noise this park is good, as it is sufficiently away from I-20. If you don't like train noise, you are out of luck here. There is a very busy track so close you think they're coming through the park. Don't expect any aesthetic satisfaction. The place is hot, dusty and without any pleasant views whatsoever. There are no discounts during football season, even when the team is playing away, and even in the non-tail-gater section. Also there is a $5 "service" charge. On the positive side, the manager was nice, the utilities worked well, and all the RVs and vehicles in the place were clean and modern. No junk. None-the-less, I believe I will select another location on my next visit to Tuscaloosa. - Tidy Boy

If you arrive at night, like we did, the drive into the park and to the camp area will seem eerie, as there are no street lights along the way and few signs of civilization except for speed limit warnings. The grounds have a dozen or more camp sites with water and electric, although some had the water shut off when we were there in early Nov. If you have to use restroom facilities, they are available at the beginning of the road that leads to the camp sites, which means a longer hike for relief than at most camp grounds. Take a flashlight if you're going at night, as there are no streetlights along that stretch. There is one streetlight at each end of the campground, however. There are no showers, just toilets and a sink, kept clean. The grounds are surrounded by forest and are quiet (except when motorcyclists are on nearby trails). There's no vegetation encircling each site, so there's no privacy. Each site has a concrete area for a picnic table and RV. The grounds are several miles from stores, restaurants and service stations. The grounds apparently are closed Mon.-Wed., so we were asked when I made reservations to call a park employee an hour before arriving to get the code to open the entry gate. We paid the next morning. I'd definitely return when in the area. We had a partial hook-up, with electricity only. - John_K

Just an overnight stay at a relatively new small park. As others have said, the focus here is on use of the trails. Rate reflects the fact that the site did not have a sewer connection. Everything is well-maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that none of my GPS apps could find this place. The turn-off was clearly marked, so no need to worry. Very pretty and quiet place. Would stop by again. - NKA

Wanting a weekend-getaway spot close to home, we drove 20 miles and backed our RV into one of many available concrete RV spots. Each space has a firepit and picnic table along with the normal water, electric, sewage hook-ups. There are no 'shade-trees' around the campsite just yet, but some have been planted. RV spaces are far enough apart to avoid eaves-droppers, but close enough to see into your camper [NOTE: pull your shades down!]. No bath-house on the site, but there are unheated, block-style restrooms at the trail heads. We weren't there to enjoy the many ATV trails; however, our investigation of the park revealed a clean, well-organized area with the trails clearly marked [although, it would have been nice to have a spot-light on some of the signs, as they were difficult to see in the dark.] and, several pavilions for gatherings and gravel parking areas for ATV haulers. Trails are mid-level difficulty and clearly marked for operators. The lake walking path was wonderful and quiet on the cold, late October morning. The ATV riders did not show up until Sunday, late-morning after the rain, and we were pulling out to leave. All-in-all, a family atmosphere meant to support the ATV trail system. Definitely a 'keeper' in our book! - Two Hippies in an RV

We decided at the last minute to go to an Alabama football game. As expected, RV sites were impossible to find. Called Sunset RV park and they said they had space at this park, their overflow park. As previous reviews state, it is a gravel parking lot with hook ups. For our purposes, it was fine. In fact, it is only 4 miles down the road to the stadium. It was surprisingly quiet at night. - Traveling Golfer

We were surprised that our 1st choice for a nightly stop was filled. So we grabbed our old campground directory and picked the next available park to the west. The only good news was that their regular park, (Sunset Travel Park) which adjoins, but sits below I-40 was filled. We were directed to the overflow park Avalon RV Park. It is just a gravel parking lot with working W/S/E. No obvious trash receptacles, so I walked our bag to the nearby sister campground which had a trash bin. The nearby train added to the low rating. We'll add this to our any port in the storm list. - BobatRetama

Bare bones: new gravel parking lot with utility posts. Lots of long term residents/workers. Adequate for an over night, but close enough to a city to have the noises, sirens, motorcycles, etc. No interstate noise, but there's a late night car wash and light industrial. Don't go on the week-end. The bar across the street faces the park and notorious for noise, etc. So says the manager. Passport America rates. You have to stop into Sunset RV park (practically underneath I-20) to pay and get a map. - mrfixer
