2 Parks near Coffeeville, Alabama
Aug 2015 - $26.00
We were passing through the area and needed a roosting spot. We came into the park at about 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. No one was there--no other campers, no park employees. We selected one of the dozen or so pads. They were all level with full hookups. No shade. The 30 amp breaker tripped a couple of times during the night, and that was a bit eerie in a deserted park where you are the only campers. I cautiously went out to reset. Next morning no employee had arrived by 9am. I called the park number and was routed to park HQ in Montgomery. They asked me to kindly leave a check in the mail box. I thought it was a novel experience being all alone in the middle of no where but my wife was not comfortable with it. I think this park gets active in hunting season. It has a big deer dressing station. The park has a good history display board explaining its origin as a sulfur springs resort, and the old Roman baths built before the Civil War are still there to look at. - Tidy Boy

We stayed here on our way to Florida from Texas. We wanted to stay off freeways. This place is remote. We had a pleasant overnight stay, we were the only ones here. We got here, picked out a spot and hooked up. We were here an hour or so before the manager came to collect. He was very pleasant. There are springs here. There is a settlement of homes nearby so we could hear activity but we could not see anything due to the trees. They locked the gate at dark but the manager gave us the combination in case of emergency. I did not see any shower building. I saw what appeared to be a pit toilet only. - User1042

We did not stay here. The lots were narrow, not made for slide outs and difficult to back into. The park was quiet, no campers just a picnic group at the pavilion. Once the site of a lavish health spa in the early 1800's, only a few wells with hand-pump remain. The spring water contains sulfur, iron, magnesium, and calcium. - TheRoadrunner

This Corps of Engineering park is great. Camping sites are directly on the river so we were able to sit at our campsite and watch the barges and boat traffic. A boat launch area is onsite and a fishing area is available. Park attendants were very friendly and helpful. The only problem with the park, like most all COE campgrounds, sites are electric and water only with no sewer hookup, although the dump station is close and very accessible. - Ken M

What a lovely campground. It was quiet and we enjoyed being right on the river. They have wonderful paved pull throughs that were perfect for our 40' motorhome with toad. Our site was level, grassy and shady. There was a cement toped picnic table and fire ring with firewood stacked up for us to use at no extra cost! We did not use the restrooms so I can't comment on those. Camp host was quite helpful and allowed me to switch campsites to take advantage of the pull through. We would definitely camp there again. - webbsafari

We loved this CG! Yes, it is remote (come well stocked) but it's so peaceful. We loved watching the barges go by!
I would have given it a 10, but felt the bath house could have been cleaner. I always check them even if I don't use them.
We were in site #11 and it was shady and pretty level but, there was a tree on each side of our exit that would have made it impossible to make the 90 degree turn to get to the turn around. Fortunately #12 was empty so we pulled through that site. I don't believe any other pull throughs had that issue.
Also use extreme care when exiting the CG on Hwy 84 towards Coffeeville (left turn). There are fully loaded log trucks that come screaming around the curve on your right and you will have committed to the turn before you have a chance to see them. We had to do a very quick turn onto Blandon Rd to avoid being rear ended and then drive to Blandon Springs SP to turn around. At first, it didn't appear that there was a turn around. After walking into the CG we found you could make a tight turn (35 ft plus tow v) around the Crapmyrtle bushes and head back out. - Lainee131
