Rockie' Campground if you like to fish and enjoy the friendliest people on earth. The owner and her husband will do anything to help you. Nice clean site, close to the boat ramp. Will camp here whenever we go to Pickwick. - User1192

Rose Trail RV Park is directly across the street from Colbert County Rose Trail Park. We were able to walk across the street to the lake, boat ramp, and piers. There are only 14 sites. While we were here, we were the only over nighties. The rest were vacant except for two live-aboard and two empty seasonals. Gravel pads are level and partially shaded. Amenities are scarce. I don't know if they even have bathrooms or showers. The general store has typical mini mart inventory plus a good assortment of fishing tackle. Wi-Fi works in the general Store. Several loose aggressive dogs made it difficult to walk ours. At $18 including tax, this is a good deal for 50A full hookup site. - whizbang

On our dirt/pine needle filled site there was no picnic table, no fire pit, no grill, and we were close to the next RV. There was low water pressure. A train goes through several times a day (and night), and the highway noise is prevalent. The WiFi is a medium-to-weak signal but when it works it's okay for email and streaming music. The laundry, showers, and bathrooms were good. There is street behind the park accessible via a short trail that was okay for a short walk, but nothing special. If we end up back in that area, we'll look for a better alternative. - RobtL

Very clean and friendly park. Easy access to historical sites and stores. Great local music history and family activities close to park. Laundry, showers, and bathrooms the cleanest we've ever seen. Full security camera system of the whole park. Great staff on call 24 hours a day. We arrived early in the AM and were greeted by staff to show us our reserved site and gave us bath and laundry building security codes and Wi-Fi password. Awesome experience. - Gary White

Other reviews on this site state that this park needed updating. I agree, but they have not been done.
This park is awful. Please don't go with a big rig.
Dirty sites, washed out pads with steep drop offs.
Only good thing is that it is close to the Trace.
Closed restrooms, boarded up.
Never got my receipt. - Shered

The park is right on the Natchez Trace. Most of the sites are beside a small lake. The sites are well spaced and fairly level but many are very short. There were also steep drop-offs around most sites. Only TV reception was PBS from Florence, AL. No garbage cans at sites, just a dumpster as you leave. Lots of good hiking trails. No laundry facilities. - winnie1

Traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway we stopped for one night at this State Park. Lake was low, but the rest of the scenery was beautiful with tall pine trees for shade. The road around the campsite was a little windy but the sites were mostly level - all back ins. Around the lake were lots of bramble type vegetation with huge "sticker burrs" that attached themselves to our Collie and had to be cut out of her coat. FYI for pet owners - judging by the fur around our site, this had happened to other campers. Check out the Pioneer cabin in the park for a look back at history. A great spot - we will be back. - Linsay

Level rock sites sites and interior roads. Good WiFi and cable. Absolutely no shade. Some pull through, most sites back in. Nice laundry. Hookups at rear of site, need long sewer hose. Nice management. Stayed a month-would stay again. - runamuka

Basically just a gravel lot with hook-ups. No trees and not much grass. There is a field with some paths to walk the dogs, although it must be tick season because the dogs (and us) got a fair number of them. Staff was fine and the facilities are well-maintained. But it's just impossible for a gravel lot to be anything other than an "average" place to stop. - Kaz

We stay here whenever visiting relatives in Sheffield and Montgomery. The only complaint is that the internet connection is very unreliable. When it works, it works well, but unreliability has been an issue for several years. Also, signage is very hard to see at night. and crossing the two lane highway, towing a vehicle, deserves caution. - Yeeha

Very spread out. We stayed near the back of the park. The mediocre playground was a .75 mile walk with several hills. Roads are paved throughout. Concrete pads and patios. Several sites right on the water. Shoot for the first loop. - foosh

This price was for full hook ups. Nice park but pretty secluded. If you are going for site seeing, you do a lot of driving. It is 5 miles back to main hwy. Our site, #25, was not level front to back & website said moderate slope. Whole site was sloped, not just pad. We tried to view on Google earth but couldn't see due to trees. Not a good site but we made it work as we were no there a lot & when our neighbors went home we sat on their pad in the evening. - clinicaide

Fun park to visit. Drive way was steep and site actually too small. We called and talked to a staff person and we were told that the site was large enough for our rig. - HaveDieselWillTravel

We read the reviews on RVPR and thought this would be a good stop on our way North. We were very surprised when we arrived. The sites are paved and have full hookups, so that is good. Some are under tall pines, others are not, but don't offer any privacy but will block satellites. We opted for one not under the trees and selected a back in closest to the river, one of two available. The pad is fairly wide, but there is a concrete picnic table on it, we were pretty close to the edge of the pad and we couldn't walk between the table and the slide.
When we were setting up a neighbor let us know that we should make sure our bicycles on the back of our RV were locked up, since people going to the fishing pier drive behind us at all hours. We had to be careful our bikes didn't stick out in the road, but we didn't have any problems with anyone messing with them.
The road in the campground is narrow and a little bumpy. The lots at the back seemed smaller, there were several where we wouldn't be able to park our truck, but I think our 5er would fit in most of them.
My husband is a senior and we paid $25/night, the sign said $20/night for seniors. He questioned the lady checking us in and she said we were getting the senior rate. For various reasons, we decided to leave a day early. We were told that we wouldn't get our money back, and that was fine. Our neighbors wanted the site for his father-in-law and offered to pay for the night we already paid for. They come here often and when he paid us he gave us $20. I have the feeling we were taken by the nice lady in the office.
The location is great, very convenient to historic Florence and it restaurants. Drive a bit further and there are numerous big box stores and chain restaurants. - Uno Mas

Park does not accept reservations but when I called the office the woman said call back just before you get here. We decided to drive to the park anyway and found a site one row off the water. Was interesting watching the barges up and down the river, lots to see and do in the area. Park was clean, sites were not at all close as in previous review, been to others with less space. Reason I did not give this park an excellent review was for the no reservations and the water/sewer connections were a stretch. - Colette

This was our second visit to this campground. It is a city/county owned campground on the banks of the Tennessee River. It is part of a park which has a marina & boat ramp as well as a small beach area. The campground has pull-through and backin sites. There are no reservations but is first-come availability. We had no problems in our 43 ft. Motorhome and will return when in the area. - John & Bobbie

One of five RV campgrounds owned by the Bear Creek Development Association in the area between Red Bay, AL and Russellville, AL. Good, paved access roads with reasonable clearance. Some of the sites are not level or paved. Nice views looking out over the lake. Has camp store and a camp manager on-site. Friendly and helpful, but I had a problem with the electric supply going over-voltage, sometimes as high as 135 VAC and tripping my EMS off-line. The camp manager passed the concern on to the main staff, but nothing was done and the problem persisted the entire stay. I eventually had to use my generator to protect from the voltage spikes. 22 of the sites are for seasonal campers, and the rest are on a first-come, first-served basis. You need to call the camp manager the day before and see if there are any spots available. They will know if there are any accommodating sites at the other campgrounds as well. Looks like it is a well kept secret for the local population. - Good Vibes

This used to be McKinneys RV but is now an RV conversion business and campground. The RV sites are along the east side of the business. The whole place is now rough gravel. Sites are all background but level. Staff is friendly. Water service is good as is sewer. The electric service is "iffy". First time we stayed here we were on the southern end of the line and had some voltage drops. Same this time to the point where the ACs kept tripping. If you come you need to get a site next to the power house, a metal shed near the north end of the line. Call for reservations and then recall the morning of arrival. The business has been cleaned up a lot with old wrecked RVs gone and the warehouse better arranged. Still work to do but making headway. If its hot and you need reliable electric, try another place. - okdiver
