When I called to make the reservation, the gentleman told me that some GPS units do not recognize the address. We went by our Mapquest directions and the gentleman's recommendation and took Exit 76. Campground is located right off of Exit 76. Take right off ramp, go to first traffic light, turn right, park is on the right. You can see it from the interstate. All in all, all was good, but a couple of signs wouldn't hurt. We camped in a travel trailer and would stay here again. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Wal Mart Supercenter and Sams Club within 3 miles, along with several gas stations.

This is a parking lot with hookups. Neither the cable nor the wifi worked and there is no air signal for antenna either. It's way over-priced for what you get. It's January and we are winterized until we get further south, and there was no shower house and or restrooms in the section where we stayed. They have two sections of the campground separated by a highway. Apparently there are restrooms on the other side of the highway which are not where we are. We would have to walk quite a distance with part of it along a highway (at night) in order to get to the other side. We have stayed at much cheaper places where we got a shower in a heated shower house. When we realized that the cable didn't work, we called the office and got a recorded message so no service either. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is nothing in walking distance.

This was an interesting stop. We were on our way from Shreveport to Atlanta and needed a one nighter. No problem getting in and the young man on duty put us in a easy pull thru.
The park is in two sections, one has many full timers and smaller sites and just across the street is a vey large flat area with quite a few spots for large RV's. Amenities are basic but well kept. I get the feeling this is a staging area for Alabama tailgaters as the University is a short ways off. We stayed humble with our UGA regalia.
Would stay here again for a short stay! We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed one night in the section down the road from the office. Sites are level and plenty long for 36' MH towing a CR-V. While this park is nothing fancy, it had everything I needed and is easy off/on I-20. I will certainly stay here again if passing thru at a good stopping time.

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.
