Let's be honest here, everyone is jammed in pretty tight. A lot of folks that live here in their RV, and most of them have a storage unit or two next to their RV. If you have children this would be a great place. Lots of activities and space to roam around, ride bikes etc. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Easy access, friendly staff, no amenities to speak of. Would be a much better park if they didn't allow squatters. A lot of sites are overrun with miscellaneous boats, storage tents, several cars and outside refrigerators. Surprised City of Decatur puts up with this.

Great RV park, owned & managed by city of Decatur with most amenities except cable TV. Antenna will pick up a few stations. Good Wi-Fi and cell phone connectivity. Level, shaded spots for everybody. Over 600 acres here with many, many spots and lots of locals know about this place. I will stay here again if I'm in this area. Price noted is senior citizen discount. Fire pits for all and cheap firewood available. Lots of shade and cool breezes. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Point Mallard is an enormous recreation complex owned and run by the city of Decatur AL. It has soccer and little league fields, tennis courts, a huge water park, a golf course, archery ranges, bike trails and I’m sure other things we didn’t see. The campground seems to have a lot of “permanent” residents with a fair number of campsites for itinerants. The staff is very friendly. The campground is kept clean, they pick up your trash at your site 3 times a day. Our campsite (26) was a full service, pull-through site on a corner, so we ended up having traffic passing us on two sides. Next time, we will request one of the other sites. There was trash and cigarette butts in the fire ring, which we cleaned up because they were unsightly. Our price reflects the 15% Senior Citizen discount. This is also a Good Sam Club campground.

Friendly staff, but not familiar with site sizes, locations, etc. Surprising number of full timers for a public park. A little difficult to find; follow directions carefully. Sites were a little larger than average, overall appearance a little better than average. We didn't use the golf course, tennis courts, etc. The rating would be higher if you wanted these amenities.

Point Mallard appears to be part of a huge recreational complex. We were in the area visiting relatives and stayed here for one night. The campground is large and was very crowded. Many, many children. A very family friendly atmosphere, but kids were running wild throughout the night and were difficult to see while driving through the crowded park. Most sites, including 'overflow' sites, were filled. Fortunately, we had reservations. The sites were all gravel. Weaving around the campground in a bigger RV with a tow, would be a challenge. I did not think the sites were very spacious. We would have had trouble with our awning because of neighboring campsites and/or trees. We were given several choices to pick from when we arrived. None of the sites appeared to be accommodating. The management was extremely reasonable and found us an unoccupied seasonal site that they let us stay in for the night. The management was the best attribute of the campground. The bathhouses were very dirty. Many bugs and even animals were residing in the facility closest to us. There are many trees, and sites were level and gravel. There is no grass. We did not use the Wi-Fi. We did not take advantage of the nearby activities. If we were in the area again, I would probably stay to explore some of the adjacent activities, but I would stay with low expectations and avoid using the bathrooms.

Nice big sites, easy to get in, good roads, large older trees and clean restrooms. We will stay here again. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Very nice wooded park setting - like a state park with gray squirrels and birds. Level gravel sites with good spacing between units. A great place for traveling through or spending a week. A few miles west of I-65 in the town of Decatur near the theme park. Nice people at check-in and those that maintain the park. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Yes, I went to this park. I have been there multiple times in the winter when the population is lower. This park is part of a city owned complex and has a large population of permanent residents especially during the warm months. The park is clean and well kept. I haven't used the bath houses and can't speak for them. The laundry was nice. It is centrally located to the city of Decatur but isolated enough so that you don't feel like you are in the busy city. During the warm months this is largely a trailer park rather than a campground in that they don't accept reservations and are consistently full. It's obvious there are vast amounts of long-term residents. I found the office staff to be unconcerned about visitor parking needs and demonstrated a take-it-or-leave-it attitude. While I wouldn't mind staying at the park again, I can't afford to drive my 35' MH there without reservations on the remote chance of getting a spot. I find their attitude unfriendly toward out of town visitors and more accommodating to locals who just need a place to store their RV. I would not recommend any out of town tourists planning on staying there. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We paid the senior rate of $20.70 per night for a 50 amp full hook up crushed stone / gravel pull thru site. The site was fairly level, there was a slight drop off as you first pull in and then the site flatten out nicely. Sewer was right there, but the electric and water were to the back of the site. No problems hooking up, but we did use two water hoses. We did not see a cable connection at our site. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were very good. The Park's Wi-Fi was also very good. Overall a nice municipal campground and we would stop again when in the area. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Motorhome.Undo

For whatever reason the gal at check in didn't want to sell us a Good Sam membership. After some persistence she sold us the membership and applied the discount. The campground is quite nice. Lots of long term campers but still enough sites for others. Campground has shade trees, but does not provide privacy. Sites are decently spaced and level, but hook up location isn't great. We managed okay. Bathrooms/showers were good, as well as, the laundry facility. We enjoyed the campground and walking trail so much that we stayed an extra night.

This park is mostly fulltime residents. We were instructed at check-in to go pick out our own site and let the office know what we had selected. We did. The beauty of this park is the long and beautiful walking trails. We were here during the time when the leaves changed colors and it was very pretty and peaceful. I think it would be wise to call ahead for reservations at this park since there are not many sites for short term people. We will stay here again when we get a chance.

The staff was courteous and helpful. The pull-through sites were short and not level. Back-in sites were shady and more inviting. This was a one night stay. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Nice city park. A lot of full time residents. Some routes in the park are not big rig friendly, we are 57' long hooked ready to tow. I would suggest you walk or have them take you by golf cart to your site to confirm you can get through with your rig. There is multiple ways to get around the park for access. Would return again.
