2 Parks near Coffeeville, Alabama
Oct 2016 - $1.00
We visited the park, but did not stay overnight. We found no sign of any caretaker, host, etc., and no sign indicating there was a camping fee. Phone numbers of two people in the county were provided on signs. It may be free. Campsites were mowed, and water spigots were operating. Could not test for electric service, but when I raised the unique panel lids, large, aggressive, and active paper wasp colonies were present. There were a number of odd bath houses with pitcher pump wells, and a several large group picnic facilities, all well maintained. As for camping, however, because of the remoteness, lack of a host or park manager, and the possibility of being totally alone in a very dark place, I would say to those who may consider camping here that you may be placing yourself in an unsafe environment for your property and possibly your life by staying overnight. Again, my opinion is that this unmanned, remote, and dark county park places an RVer at significant risk of being robbed, at minimum. I cannot recommend this Park to my fellow RVers. - The Happy Traveler

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

Small CoE park right on the Tombigbee River. View of the river and tows was excellent. The park has few campsites but very good spacing and views. Site was a pull through on the water. At 35 feet plus toad, i was able to unhook on the site. The turnaround at the end of the park was tight, so I turned the RV around before hooking up the toad. As mentioned elsewhere, the log trucks make a left hand exit from the park an adventure. ATT cell service was intermittent but Verizon worked very well. - BamaGradx2

Amazingly spacious waterfront pull through campsites make this a special campground. Back in sites were also spacious, but built up and had steep sides. All sites paved or concrete. A single two lane road goes through the campground, with a cul-de-sac for turnaround. Yes, the barges and boats are fun to watch. A wooden dual rail fence separates the sites from an 80% grade drop into the river... not the place for young children. If you have young kids, I'd camp in the back in sites, not on the waterfront. Besides, there is a playground between next to bathhouse away from the river. Water snakes were observed in the river several times. Hookups worked great. Bathrooms/showers are dated, and could have been cleaned better. Toilet rims dirty. Yuk. Well maintained dump station. Nice laundry room and small book exchange. Sprint voice service was 1 or 2 bar. Sporadic data service. DTV was limited to six channels of PBS and ABC. Hosts were friendly and engaged. Unlike some COE parks which seem dominated by campers on a mission to fish, this park also had vacationers who were there to get away from it all, and even x-country bicyclists. People were quite social. This park will flood, so your vacation plans could get disrupted. There is a grocery store in Coffeeville 4 miles east, but otherwise this part of Alabama is quite rural and isolated. If you get hurt, it's a long way to a hospital. Little to do in area. Coffeeville dam not open to public via land. Gates to the campground are locked after 10 pm. Log truck traffic on US 84 is heavy, and can be heard in the distance from the campground. We would camp here again as a get away for a few days. - The Happy Traveler

Fine location on the Tombigbee River for observing large pleasure boats heading south for the winter; along with many barges carrying cargo north or south.
Our site (one of ten pull throughs, along with three back ins overlooking the river) was on a high bank, affording an excellent view of river traffic.
This is another fine COE campground, providing ideal scenery.
Over the air TV is weak at best, so bring other options to watch TV. However, the scenery and interesting boat traffic is much better.
We look forward to another visit. - Navretiree
