3 Parks near Castleberry, Alabama
Oct 2011 - $11.00
Don't expect anything fancy. In fact, don't expect much at all except for a plain and simple place to stay. It is by the side of the road, out in an open field. Only about a dozen sites and you are right on top of each other. It is a very quiet field, across from a farm with a bunch of heifers that love to talk out loud all day long. I mean the animals. The owner does not live on site and there is no office. She is a very nice lady that drops by daily and will bend over backwards to help you out. There is a laundry and bath house on site that is clean and roomy. Only one person at a time. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Great community, nice people. We attended a local church and met some nice folks. - thesarge7

Very nice owner. Basically, this is someone's front yard just a few miles from I-65. Sites are just grass, and close together. There is noise from the road right out front as the road leads to I-65 and it's a fast two lane road. We recommend using pads if there's been rain. We sunk so deep the first time leveling we thought we were going to get stuck, pulled the jacks back up and redid with pads. There is a laundry room available. You have to drive about 10 miles to find grocery stores and restaurants. They accept Passport America during the week so you can't beat the rate. This is an acceptable overnight stop and yes, it does beat staying at a Wal-Mart. The owner was concerned enough about the electric to warn us how to reset the electric should we lose power. We used only 30 amp service and didn't have any problems this time of year. - sparky59

This was a very nice, but very basic RV park. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The RV sites are all well kept grass and were level. The park is only a few miles off of the interstate and access is very easy. With the Passport America rate it was an ideal place to spend the night. We were treated like we were a part of the owner's family. I would definitely stay there again whenever we are in the area. - rgatijnet

This park is so run down, I wouldn't advise anyone to go there. The interior roads and sites are mostly Alabama red clay with gravel and grass mixed in. The office was closed on the Sunday afternoon we pulled in. We needed a spot for overnight so we chose the first one that looked fairly level. There are no picnic tables and the fire ring was full of grass and weeds. There were about 5 full time residents and we did see one on his way to the bath house. When we left the next day, we had to put our payment in the drop box because the office was still closed. We never did meet the owner. The road we needed to use to leave our site had such a large rut from water erosion extending across most of the road that we chose to drive over the grass. We would NEVER stay here again. - dickens

Plain Jane RV park, but fine for overnight stay. 1 mile from Interstate 65. Would stay here again if passing through, because it is easy to find from the interstate, also it accepts Passport America. All pull-throughs so not necessary to unhook toad. Interior roads very rough and lots of potholes. Old RV park that needs some loving care. No wifi or cable TV but we have satellite so that was no problem for us. Not a place for a vacation but OK for overnight parking. Has a fishing pond. - mlou

We stayed one night while passing through. Campground is 1.5 miles from interstate. Easy to find. Rate is Passport America and we paid in cash. Dirt drive, gravel and dirt sites. Not level. We were so high our front tires almost off the ground. Low water pressure. Very quiet, country setting. Tight internal roads, narrow but doable if careful. There were only 3 other RVs in the park during our stay and one was longterm. Dated bathhouse, no laundry, no off leash dog park, no Wi-Fi, no cable but it's between Mobile and Montgomery so plenty of stations with antenna. There is a small lake that you can fish. No one in the office when we arrived so we picked a site. Someone came at 6 PM to take our money. Will stay here again if driving by. Very quiet at night. The donkey across the road didn't start up until the morning. Would stay here again for overnight. - Flippitti

The main road through park is paved and width for one vehicle. If you encounter another vehicle, one needs to pull off slightly to pass. The grounds are well packed for passing.
Sites clean and enjoyed our stay. We had our grandson and luckily while making reservations the lady mentioned to download form for his parents to sign if he planned to use the zip line. Staff was very helpful checking in.
Will definitely be back. - Pcola Camper

The actual process of check in was just fine of check in; however, there's no sign on the trailer office out front to indicate that's where you check in. It wouldn't be confusing except there's an older trailer right next to it that isn't the office. There's no decent pull off for those with larger RVs/trailers, so you pretty much park on the street. The staff inside was very affable, but seemed young and inexperienced. I had to ask for a map so I would know where our site was. There was no handout with the activity information listed, which would've been great to have on paper to keep in the RV. We had paid, checked in, and were on our way to our site within a few minutes, which was wonderful considering it was raining. My biggest issue with this park is there is no signage! There are no signs to tell you which roads to use, which ways to go, where the RV spots are, where the swimming is, etc. Once you get unhitched and can drive around and figure out where you are, it's fine. Towing a large RV and not knowing where to go isn't ideal.
49 full RV sites and 10 pull throughs. 82 RV sites with water and electric. 82 tent sites with water and electric, and unlimited primitive campsites for tents. There's a lot of spots that are in the sun, so I'd recommend checking Google maps and compare it to their maps. We had a nice pull-through that had some great shade.
WiFi was non existent as to be expected when you're out in a wildlife refuge. The staff was always very helpful and welcoming. The whole thing seemed somewhat unorganized, but that's certainly better than having rude staff! My absolute biggest complaint about the staff is that they do Not adhere to the posted 15mph speed limit. They fly through the park even when kids were out playing, even after other campers had yelled at the staff to slow down. They had a playground of swings for the kids who weren't swimming, , etc.It was very family & pet friendly. - C est La Vie Three

This place is well off the beaten path and not well known outside of the area though it is only 9 miles from I-65. With a few exceptions the sites are huge, level and wooded. They have tent, water/electric and water/electric/sewer sites and laundry facilities. There is an area for horse campers with stalls and miles of trails. There is also a large creek and a lake. During the summer there is swimming, tubing and zip lining in and over the creek. I got a useable Verizon signal (voice and 4G). A satellite dish will work on many, but not all, sites. The price I gave is based on the monthly, off-season rate. You can find the full rate schedule on the web site. If you are looking for shuffleboard and bingo this is not your place. If you want hiking, fishing and a general escape to nature you couldn't do better. This is only the second place I have ever rated a 10. I wasn't sure of the first one. I am this time. The facility is operated by the Poarch Band of the Creek Indian Nation. These natives are very friendly and great hosts. I will be back for a month or more every winter for the foreseeable future. - ljr
