An excellent place to camp with pull-through sites with great water views. Check in was very easy, roads paved and well maintained, and staff was most helpful. Our site was level and quite suitable for a handicapped person. Park was quiet and peaceful; no cell service or WiFi; no satellite or TV. This is definitely a place to "get away from it all." We camped here overnight. Rate reflects discount for veteran. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here and attended MSU / AL baseball in Tuscaloosa. We found this to be a convenient location for that. Some sites require blocks to level. The biggest negative feature we found was the dump station is not close to the exit. You have to go toward the back to dump. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites 33, 35, 37, & 39 have decks overlooking the lake & its beautiful surroundings. Park staff were exceeding welcoming, friendly, & helpful. 30 amp electricity is as high as it gets. AT&T cell phone reception is spotty. Daily rate reflects senior discount of 15%. Hookups were a stretch & on the wrong side. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

Typical State Park, we had a waterfront site in loop B. Nice site, but as other posters stated the hookups are on the opposite side of RV. We didn't really care for the set up (not what we're used to) you pull in and the road for other sites is directly alongside your site, so any RV coming in (at least in Loop A and B) they drive right by your slides. Little unnerving for us. Other sites in C and D were back in, but some are water electric only. We had some electric issues our last 2 days there, our surge protector keep flashing "CAUTION LOW VOLTAGE". Needs to be updated, but typical of a State facility in this day and age. Would we stay here again? Only if we had to while passing through. The rate reflects a weekly rate in off season. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a beautiful, quiet spot on a lake. There is no obtrusive lighting. Verizon phone and air-card both worked. We have a 40 foot motorhome and had no problems pulling into one of the pull through sites. This park has hiking trails and is a great spot for one night with easy access. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

We checked in and paid. We drove through the two open loops twice and walked most of the campground trying to find a site that our 35' fifth wheel would fit without luck. Not only are the sites short but are very unlevel and rough, broken asphalt. The electric hookups look very old. We decided our best course of action was to leave and move on. They refunded our money and we drove on. This campground was built in the 1950s and appears to have had very little if any improvements since. Perhaps if you have a smaller rig, it would work for you. It's in a very pretty area but needs some work. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with previous campers: a lovely state park! We really enjoyed the lovely shade trees and the water views. The ducks love campers. They followed us around almost like pets. Nice and level sites. Very friendly office staff. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate was for a basic site, $16.60 after 15% senior discount from regular rate of $19.53. Sewer sites are $22.79, waterfront basic are $22.79, and waterfront with sewer sites are $26.04. There are monthly rates for Dec-Feb. It says to add $3 per night for Friday and Saturday nights March-October. $2 for each person over 4 people. People are very friendly and helpful. You can rent peddle boats for use on the lake, canoes, and fishing boats. They have flotation devices and paddles (and the fish). I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 days here. The setting is lovely, in wooded hills around Lake Lurleen. There are lots of hiking trails, but fairly narrow requiring single-file use. The camp sites and nearby areas are completely free of poison ivy, as far as I could tell, but there is some to be avoided along the one trail I used. Annoying insects were largely absent, but you should probably bring some mosquito repellent. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Arrived late on a Friday night during spring break and still they found room for me. I was so glad because this is one of the most beautiful state parks I've ever been to. Would gladly spend a weekend here again. Only real downside was lack of signal for the phone or computer. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park, but with most State Parks lately, needs a little TLC. The park is easily accessable with big rigs. There is a nice, sandy beach area for swimming. The staff keeps the park very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

Older park, but well kept and the view of lake was good. Not all of the sites allowed for bigger rigs (ours is 35 foot), but we found many that we could get into. Some sites have utilities on the wrong side. They don't reserve by site and not all have sewer. Didn't get to try any of the trails (it was raining), but the walk on the drive through the campground was nice. Cell phone service was practically non-existent. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great place for family. Beach area on lake, canoe and paddle boat rentals and miles of hiking/biking trails. The sites are somewhat easy to access, most are level, but narrow. There are also limited sewer hook up sites, but water and electric are available on all RV sites. Plenty of shade through out the park. There are also 2-3 playgrounds available for the kids. Overall, this campground was fun, clean and enjoyable. Keep in mind that if you want to fish, a state fishing permit is required and are a bit pricey for non-residents. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has so much potential! It desperately needs some work done to it. Camp sites are not level, connections at some sites are not on the same side, and sites are in need of being repaved. While we were there, we witnessed several employees riding around, basically doing nothing. Obviously, who ever cut the grass couldn't be bothered to cut the grass where the riding mower wouldn't go. Bathrooms were clean and looked to have been recently painted, but are in need of being updated. I wish that I could rate it higher. We enjoyed our time riding bikes and walking. It is just a shame that Alabama can't do better than this at keeping up a state park. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

It does not get much better than this. Raised lakeside site. Deck. Good site spacing. Being there for a couple of weeknights when the park is almost empty. Could use a bit of 'sprucing up' but for the $ there is no room for complaint. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are the type person that likes department store security cameras following you, this park is for you. In our ten years of camping at well over 100 campgrounds, this one gets the prize for most strict. We witnessed two vehicle searches while staying here. That was a first! Apparently they have a problem with some day visitors. As far as the campground is concerned, I'm guessing it was built in the 60's by the lowest bidder. While there are some level sites, many are quite unlevel and chipped away. About half the sites have hook-ups on the wrong side, while some have the hook-ups spread out on both sides. Bring a long sewer hose. Some sites even have the electric service panel right where your RV door would go. The area is absolutely beautiful. However, the park could really use some updating. They should give the security guard a can of wasp spray to go clean out the lake shower-house of wasp nests! At least the park felt secure at night. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
