During football season this park has two sections: one for seasonal tailgaters (you won't get into it if you don't lease it for the season), and one for everyone else. Both are gravel, no trees, no tables. Most of non-tailgater section (where we were) is occupied by people working temporarily in Tuscaloosa and other long-termers. While the tailgater section is angled pull-throughs with more space between units, the other section is tightly packed un-angled pull-throughs with little maneuvering room. The pedestals are shared between spaces, thus you are back-to-back and front-to-front with your neighbours. If you don't like interstate noise this park is good, as it is sufficiently away from I-20. If you don't like train noise, you are out of luck here. There is a very busy track so close you think they're coming through the park. Don't expect any aesthetic satisfaction. The place is hot, dusty and without any pleasant views whatsoever. There are no discounts during football season, even when the team is playing away, and even in the non-tail-gater section. Also there is a $5 "service" charge. On the positive side, the manager was nice, the utilities worked well, and all the RVs and vehicles in the place were clean and modern. No junk. None-the-less, I believe I will select another location on my next visit to Tuscaloosa. We camped at Bama RV Station in a Travel Trailer.
