8 Parks near Childersburg, Alabama
Oct 2015 - $30.00
Nice park. Small and bathrooms were easily accessible. There were only three stalls and there were lines each morning waiting for showers. Bathrooms are inside with the showers but there are extra bathrooms near the fun park.
Fun park was on the expensive side. We hoped that more things were included, like the pumpkin painting and s'mores roasting, but they were all extra costs.
Overall it was a nice park, but costly.
Our site was on a slight slant. - HeFFeR718

No other reason to stay here other than for a night or two to see the caverns. Not much to the RV park. Extremely small. Unlevel crushed stone pads and odd layout. We stayed in site #2, but sites 1, 2, and 3 are all in a row so if you had someone staying in any of the other sites you would be unable to pull thru. The playground badly needs updating. Mature trees were a plus, but no fire pits. Bathrooms/showers worked, but lots of spider webs in them. Cavern tour is nice, but the rest of the "attractions" are overpriced and need maintenance. This is an alcohol free park. - Cap'n G

“Interesting” doesn't even come close to describing this park. In the 70s and 80s, we could easily see this being a “destination” park. Now it has all the charm of a large “outdated” playground. During our stay, we were the only rig, other than a “permanent”. Restrooms are ¾ style bathrooms. Laundry facilities are a single washer and dryer set up in the community area kitchen. Cost is $1.75 per unit. Sites are small and very uneven. Maintenance seems to be a major problem in both the “amusement park” and campground. Internet was free and slow when you got a connection. As it is an unsecured connection, it is obvious the neighbors take full advantage of it. Television is antenna or satellite. Had no issues with cell phone service. Rate shown is Passport America weekly rate divided by 7. Doubt we will stay here again. - Full-Timer RV'er

This campground was clean and safe. It is pretty far off any main roads but they were fairly easily traveled so long as you don't lose your GPS signal which is always a concern when traveling in the country. Be sure to fill up because there aren't many fuel stops and even less with diesel. The hosts were extremely nice and the campground was "ok". Sites were close together. No privacy and they were not very level. No water views and nothing much to do. No cable. No wi-fi. At least 15-20 miles away from any sort of attractions. This seems to be a seasonal vacation spot as there were many permanent set ups but nicely done. Not trashy like some. We were booked to stay 2 nights but left after only one because of the lackluster surroundings. Unless there is something specific you are doing in the area I would say keep moving. I always hate to leave a mediocre or poor review when the people are so nice but unfortunately we would not be back here again. - freedmskr

On lake shore. Site A7 (I think - it backed up to power line) $30/night. Sit was spacious, partially shaded. Barely able to get level, but finally did. Power line made great dog walk. Trails in woods also good dog walking.
Park is clean and attractive. Be sure you talk to them if you have a big rig. It would be a challenge to get into some areas.
Most sites in the park are owned and have park models and trailers semi-permanently installed. Limited number of rental sites.
No cable, no WIFI, adequate OTA reception, good AT&T.
Pretty remote from shopping. Heavy train activity all night. No road noise at all. Nice pool, small beach on the lake. Dated but clean showers; small laundry looked OK but we didn't use it.
Roads are mostly gravel and fairly narrow with some ruts. It looks like the drainage is being worked on and is overdue. - bobcovey

Very nice people running the park. Fantastic lake on site, good fishing no license required. Pull through sites need better access, roads a little narrow and rutted out due to heavy rains in area. We will stay there again. - Hardcorps628

I checked in at the gas station (Chevron) where the campground registration is and was waited on right away. I was assigned site #9, which is the closest to the lake as you can get. Site was a pull thru and just long enough for my 25 foot motorhome and car trailer to fit. View was fantastic and it was very quiet as I was siting alone from the other RV's in the campground. Full hookup worked just fine even with temps hovering around low 30's. If you are a boating enthusiast, there are docks for you to tie up at. There is a landing right there along with a snack bar. Gas station is a mini-mart, there is a liquor store and other amenities on site. Grounds were patrolled by employees in a pickup truck during the day and into the evening and I would assume during the night (I didn't stay up to make sure). Had good TV reception via antenna and Verizon phone worked just fine. I stayed for 2 nights and I would come back here again. - Bobber

The park is nice but we did not enjoy it as much as when we were here before. Previously we stayed in Oct. for a night. The view was spectacular & the park was not crowded. This time it was summer & there were a lot of 5th wheels & campers for the fishing & boating. We could barely see the lake because all the spaces at the water's edge were taken with long term guests. The view was clear in Oct. When we arrived they told us to pick any spot we wanted. We barely made it around the perimeter of the park because there was a repair shop working on boats that were blocking the way. That wasn't the case in Oct. either. This is a great place for launching a boat. If that's what you are looking for come during the summer. If it is a quiet peaceful stay with beautiful views come during the off season. - Connie's Co-Owner

Nice lakefront. We were passing through for one night only. The place was pretty empty so we chose site 5. Tight pull through with our 45' + tow. No shade or privacy between sites. Some permanents. It isn't worth going back and risking damage to our RV electrical system. We had to run our gen all night due to faulty electric hookup. There was no one qualified to help. - YOLO13

This is an Alabama State Park campground located 10-12 miles south of Birmingham. Convenient to shopping and restaurants from either the south or north park entrance. We spent 3 nights on the A side of the campground. Nice, tranquil setting. We were assigned a "pull along" site for our motorhome and toad. I wanted to get a site where trees would not block my roof mounted satellite and they gave me a site that worked well, however, the pad had deep tracks of broken asphalt. Full hookups with 30 amp electric service. Site A22. Paid $31.63 per night with taxes and fees. - Coopsecondact

Nice state park. Some sites are small for big rigs, but most will accommodate them. Sites are level and paved with asphalt. Sewer connections and electrical good location. Some sites do not have sewer. Most on the A side do. The B side looks like that sites are close and not all have sewer. Lots of trees and shade. During stay severe weather was expected. Rangers and staff came to every campsite with information about shelters, radio and TV stations to use for updated weather reports. They were very concerned about guest safety. We will stay again. - bowl2764

Average, older State Park. All except a few sites on the B side are pretty bad - too closely spaced and unlevel. The A side is better spacing, but still a little tight. Some sites on the A side are really unlevel front to back. Pull through sites are short. Watch out for "backward sites", there are quite a few.
This CG looks like it is a formerly "all tent" CG, and they ran utilities to some of the parking spaces for the tent sites. Typically, the RV parking space is narrow, and the "sitting area" for the associated RV site is separated from the RV. Sometimes as much as 100 feet. And, some of the tent sites that could not be converted are still there. So, it makes for a strange layout, because the tent sites are scattered among, and between, the RV sites.
The bathrooms are functional but small, in need of updating, but relatively clean.
Most sites in the A area are full hookup, but only 30 amp power. Water pressure was 40 psi, Verizon coverage = 3/5 bars, satellite availability is varied because of a heavy tree coverage. Good local TV stations.
Excellent large park with lots to do for the kids - beach, hiking/bike trails, BMX track, fishing, etc. Also, tons of shopping within close driving range of the park.
I will not stay at Oak Mountain again unless I need close access to Birmingham, and then, only if I can get a decent site on the A side. - Bama Camper

This is a quiet little park. All grass but clean. Friendly owner. We were in 43 foot motor home. Nothing fancy but good to stay while traveling. Highway noise during busy travel but not bad. Feels safe. We would stay again. Going to races and she said she doesn't raise her rent for races. I would give it a higher rate if they had pads for Rv. We don't use bath houses so that doesn't matter to us. - Pam_Ricky

Basically a field with hook-ups. Power and water pressure are good. The sites are not level and our water valve box housed a mound of fire ants. The road noise level is very high. We were the only transient guests this particular day and shared the campground with a handful of very run-down full time trailers. Price reflects PA discount. - Full-Time Roamers

This is a new campground and the owner's are just getting the campground running. There are about 15 level sites that are on grass with some gravel. The roads are gravel. Access is right off the highway. This is a basic place to stay with W/E/S but no bathrooms or shower house. Our rate was using Passport America. We stayed here so we could visit the Talladega Race Museum and track. - Traveller101

We were planning to stay 2 weeks but then called to go elsewhere for work, so only stayed 1 night. Teresa was super friendly, park was rustic but good walking path and lots of geese and ducks. Restrooms and laundry area needed a little work but were fine for use. Very hilly park but that was good since there was no pooling of water from rain. We would definitely stay again pending work area assigned. - witchey1

No office staff on Friday at 6 pm. Very hard to find a level site with full hook up. Bathrooms produced screams from our girls. It was a quiet place. - Wendy Schleich

Winding road to campground/conference center was narrow but decent, but the road to the office was abysmal!!! If I'd had false teeth, they'd have been on the floor!!! No way of dodging potholes either. Site was adequate for an overnight stay (which was in a specific area for overnighters) but had to level with boards and couldn't pull forward to turn when leaving because of post, tree across the way, etc. Luckily we were able to back up. Would look for another option if ever in the area again. - KarenK

Very noisy with highways on both sides, and trains running all night. Verizon worked well and Satellite wouldn't have been a problem. They do have pretty good cable TV. We just stayed one night and probably wouldn't stop again. - fulltime.petes

Pretty much nothing here but a place to park. Most are full time. Good water and elect. The problem is that is has been raining and I was all most getting out. The roads are so bad with holes we almost tipped over on the way out. Price was good but will never stay again. you better call ahead if you want to stay because they only have about 2 open sites. If it is raining stay away. - neilontheroad

Our 2nd stay. There had been quite a bit of rain this stay & the only site available had the water connection 6 inches under water and a lot of mud/water in & around the site. Appeared to be mostly seasonal campers. Would not recommend after a rain. - LakeLucy

Two things in the name of the place are correct - it's located in Alabama & it is creekside. The sites are on the grass. So thankful that it had not rained when we were staying. The grass needed to be cut.
We were only passing through, didn't use any of the facilities. We did walk over to look at the creek. It's busy with kayakers, tubers & canoers. - 3catstravel

No shade, lots of grass/weeds, no tables. No WiFi or cable. Some digital over the air channels. DirecTV came in good. Sprint coverage poor. Good location to Speedway. Owner/manager has off leash dogs that run the place. She does not have voice control over them so take your chances that they do not conflict with your dogs. - beach89bum

This place needs a lot of TLC. It's hard to find at night: signage is difficult to see. The middle RV sites are all badly hollowed into the grass, so after a rain they were pretty wet. Fortunately, the only gravel/level site (#21) was open. Many of the electric boxes appeared to be damaged or had covers missing. But it's quiet (except for the neighborhood dogs who bark at any movement, and seem to run loose at times) and the shower was nice enough (and clean). It IS close to the Talladega track (we saw closer RV Parks, but guess they are only open for race weekends?) Wi-Fi was quirky: didn't work in the evening, but worked the following morning. - Deb344
