Nice concrete pad and well kept utilities. Cable was lousy, but HD antenna had good reception. Little reception with Verizon wireless. Well kept park. Highway noise was evident. Would stay for a one-nighter again, but not much longer. Great access to I-20. Easy on and off. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have posted, easy off and on from the highway. Long pull thru in the lot up the street from the main office and where most of the permanents are. Sites are gravel with concrete pedestal area and a concrete runway on the door side of the rig. One pedestal area is shared by two rigs but you have separate electric, water, and cable connection. You are parked side by side but nose to tail. Gave up on cable-very snowy and grainy. Antenna pulls about 8 channels. No website so...... Stop again??

We stayed here one night. I would describe this park as a layover park. It was very clean and neat. We were parked on a cement pull through. We used the laundry room which was neat and in good working order. I had trouble accessing the wifi and the manager persisted and gave me the entire string of letters and numbers. After that I got in and had the best wifi that I have had anywhere between Alabama and Oregon. I even updated two iphones and my laptop software. I would definitely stop by here again. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The manager was very helpful and provided excellent customer service.

We stopped on a VERY cold night so the water to the sites had been turned off. However, the bath house still operated with plenty of hot water and clean. The park is very close to the Interstate but is not noisy. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is nothing special to look at overall, but I thought it was very decent for an overnight stay. It is quite convenient from the interstate, and I had a pull-through site that had a level concrete pad and very clean and nice hookups. I arrived late, so I never met the staff in person, but they were very friendly and helpful over the phone. The restroom/shower facility was nothing fancy but seemed clean and well-maintained. I would recommend this park, especially for a short-term or overnight stay. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here on our way to New Orleans. Easy access from I-59/20. Transient area has wide gravel roads and sites. Many pull-through sites. Campground is stretched out along JVC Road and is long and narrow. No shade. I didn't check the Wi-Fi. Our site had a concrete pad on both sides so you didn't have to walk through dirt before entering the unit. Good services well placed. Everything I want in an overnight campground. Nothing fancy but I would definitely stay here again if I was passing through. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

It's okay for an overnight stop. There are a lot of permanent residence and a clean park. One can somewhat hear the interstate noise. We stayed in the second section which was across the road. We never could get cable. Verizon was very slow. Their directions sheet had a Wi-Fi password but no Wi-Fi. We did like the level lot and the light on the pole since it was getting dark when we pulled into the site. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We picked this park for the convenience factor. It is an easy off and on from I-20. There is allot of noise from the highway, but it did not bother us too much. The owner was friendly and helpful. Shopping is close by and our Verizon phone and data worked well. It was easy to get around with our 37' RV and we were able to use our satellite dish. Overall not a bad spot for an overnight. We would stay here again. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is fine for an overnight stay and given the selections in this state, it was a good choice for time and distance for our trip. It is divided into two sections, the one on the southwest side of the road where the main office is (sign says "Sunset 2 Travel Park"), and the second across and down the same road a few hundred feet. The second section is where we stayed in a pull-thru that was quite adequate for our 32' 5er. Gravel sight with concrete pad and full hookups. While they do have Wi-Fi, it's not Internet enabled so quite useless and we could not get the cable to work from either of the two connections available. Several long term trailers, but mostly clean and neat - felt quite safe. A portion of the interstate can be seen and heard about 200 yards away, but with A/C fan running full time, it didn't keep us awake. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an okay place for a one night stay. It is close to freeway so there was highway noise, but not too bad. They advertise Internet but don't see to care that it's not working. We had no internet connection whatsoever. Cable had good selection of channels. Nice level, pull through cement site. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has good gravel interior roads and level sites. Sites have concrete islands for utility services and seating areas. Wi-Fi was weak and slow at the far end of the park where we were. It is very close to the highway, with easy on and off access, but is very noisy. Good for an overnight, but we would not stay any longer. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Not worth the price but seems to be the best choice in the area. Cement pads with grass. Gravel roads and many pull through parking areas: ours was drying mud with one big rut. Cable TV connections were male ended. Every other park we have stayed in, in our short camping history, had a female connection. If our neighbor didn't have that little male to male adapter to lend us, we would have been without TV. No restrooms or showers on the East section where we were parked. Water and sewer connections were on a cement pad, which was nice for a change. Seemed to be a large percentage of permanent residents. Sunset RV Park is OK if needing a place to stay, but in the future we will plan on passing through Cottondale without stopping. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is no longer a Passport America park and the price is out of line for the value. It was $29 for 30 amp, $32 for 50 amp. It is right off the interstate so noise is a problem. It's an OK place for an overnight stop, but just not for the price. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were put in the Avalon Dr. location which is basically a gravel parking lot with full hookups. No grass, no trees, no facilities, no tables, no dumpster for trash. Mgt gave us no warning that was what we were getting when we asked for a pull through site. We were supposed to stay 3 nights but pulled out after one. The other location opposite the office may be okay but it couldn't handle a 40 ft fifth wheel. Lots of street traffic noise and the railroad tracks are very close. Next time we'll try someplace else. The other 6 or 7 units appeared to be working people here for a long term. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.
