If you are looking for a quiet, friendly place to stay, this is your spot. The road in is easy to navigate and once in the park the roads are wide. The owners are super nice and check in was easy. Sites are gravel and grass, some are permanent residents but kept up. Our site was a pull through with full hook-ups, no issues and 50 amp electric. Long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Sites are a little wider than normal. There is plenty of place to walk the dog. WiFi was good and our Verizon signal was strong. We stayed December 5, 2017 and paid $16.00 a night with our Passport America discount. Cash or check only. - BarrettsHappyTrails

This is a hidden gem. Quiet, level. Spacious, 50amp, sewer and water. Lots of places to walk. Creek running behind it and farm setting. Camp host friendly. - ThePattersons

Overnight stop on our way home after being on the road for 30+ days. Nice pull thru, wide side to side level, front to rear slight grade. Tables need replacing, some fire rings missing. Utilities good, wifi good. Really quiet!! Narrow road going in. Would stay again. - steelman

We enjoyed our stay. It is easy on/off the highway and convenient to Huntsville. The hosts are friendly and helpful. There are no frills. Grassy pull-through sites with crushed stone landing pads and full hookups. No picnic tables or fire rings and no bathrooms/showers. Crushed stone roads in the park are easy to navigate with a big rig. We would stay here again. - MrsBowman

We will stay here again as a half way stop from home to the Gulf. Easy to get to. The first turn off the freeway exit ramp is tight but we didn't have much trouble with our 40' Class A pulling a pickup truck. Nothing fancy and its cash or check only. Super nice owners. Sites were level. We didn't unhook or go any where but it seems to be close to Athens. - Let'sGo!

Arrived late due to traffic and they left instructions for us. Sites level with granite gravel. Not much shade . NOTE please be sure you come in from I 65 much easier to find this way. GPS does not take you to the right area otherwise. - Gloria S.

The good thing about this park is that it's in a beautiful locale on Mallard Creek. If you're a boater or a fisherman it's great. Also they have spaces together for groups of three units to camp together. It is about 10 miles from any shopping. Unfortunately not all the "amenities" they list are actually operational. They only have 5 full-hookup spaces and they are not near the lake. There is no WiFi except in the office. Our space had trash and many cigarette butts from previous campers. The bathrooms have no electrical plugs and are not cleaned on a regular basis. The women's shower had cigarette butts in the shower as well as dirty washcloths....two days in a row. Another shower was full of ants. They encourage you to pay another $10 for a gate key or you have to wait at the gate to be let in. As other campers have mentioned the roads are narrow and the gates narrower still. The morning we were leaving the tornado warning siren went off....we tried to call the office (after 9 a.m.) and only got a recording. When it stopped as we were gathering our pets to find shelter we realized it was a test. It would have been considerate to inform campers when they check in that they have the test every Monday! We would not stay here again. - Catsinatrailer

Check in was easy and staff was friendly. Sites were well marked and clean. Nice picnic table and fire pit at sites. Site backed up right to Wheeler Lake, great view and sunrise. Great campground, will definitely go back. - Mhallman9903

Roads are very narrow. Gate entering the campground area itself is very narrow. (A lot of paint scrapings on the gate posts). First site we were in was very unlevel (site P49). Also, we couldn't open our bedroom slide due to the power meter being so high. There was a dog chained up outside all day and night that barked all the time. Roads and sites are not big rig friendly. There was an additional $5.00 per night fee for "park amenities", which I assume was for the boat ramp, which we didn't use. Didn't see any other "park amenities", that aren't in other campgrounds. - Phaeton

One of the best state parks we've visited. It is very well kept and the layout of campsites are angled for more privacy. The interior roads are asphalt paved and wide enough to easily navigate. However there is a sharp turn as your leaving the A loop. Just take it slow around the curve.
We didn't use shower rooms except during a tornado warning. the local emergency sirens sounded and the ranger began circling the campground with his siren on telling everyone to move to the closet shower building. he then stopped by several times to check on everyone, and give us updates on the storm.
There is a restaurant at the lodge, which is next to the marina, good food and service at a reasonable price. There is also a Day Use section with athletic fields, tennis courts, frisbee golf, etc. you can also have a picnic at one of the shelters there.
We enjoyed our time here and would visit again if we were back in the area. - Our rv journey

Beautiful, beautiful park. Lots to do; swimming, boating, hiking, fishing, golfing and very nice restaurant. Large shaded full hookup or primitive sites. Large 4 private stalls and 4 private seat bathhouse in each circle of sites. Can see lots of wildlife; deer, turkey and squirrels. Very pet and child friendly. Nice marina and several places to fish from the banks at the Lake. Our site was C009 and was right on the water. Will go back to this one often.. - Mickey K

We stayed in campground C site 6 in a class C. Our site was across the road from the lake, but we still had a good view and breeze. It was a full hook up site with no near side sites. Site 6 is sloped and we had trouble getting our 31' Class C level (our front tires were 6" off the ground!). We noticed several others having similar leveling problems. The sites across the street from us were all angled so you were watching your neighbors anytime you were outside. It was a very quiet park, well patrolled by volunteers.
Our site was between the primitive campground and the bathhouse. It was annoying because people cut through our site to get to the bathhouse. The trails were well maintained, but poorly marked making it easy to end up in the wrong place. Also some of the "drive-thru" sites were just wide spots in the road. The slides on the unit in C-5 were jutting over the road. The only laundromat is at the check-in station, which made doing laundry inconvenient. - winnie1

The park has a separate section for people staying short term. It was about 5 miles to Athens Al and 25 to Huntsville. A good location right off Hiway 31. A 4 lane highway Padres right in front so there is road noise but it didn't affect us. Plenty of eating places, grocery stores and shopping close by. Check in was quick and efficient. - leciel19

Swan Creek is more a mobile home than RV park. The overnight sites are in the front near the very busy road. The sites are long and fairly level with about half grass, half broken concrete. The exit off of the concrete is a short angled drop. Why??? We used our air levelers to raise the coach and then drove verrry slowly and miraculously nothing scraped. We saw scrape marks on site 46 ( our site was 47). The WII FI worked but there were many intermittent long pauses. Directv satellite worked fine as there were no trees near our site. Verizon was 4g 3 bars. You pay for your site when you make the reservation and there is no cancellation policy - new one on me. The office is closed on weekends so we never saw or talked to any employees. There are train whistles and traffic noise. And lots of lights - street lights between sites and a very bright "Welcome" light by site 46. We wouldn't stay here again. - Free

Very nice campground for a 1 night stop over. FHU site that's about 3 mile off I65 north or south. Park manager was ver accommodating and I believe if we needed anything she would have helped. We called approximately 5 hours out and gave us a spot, gave us the option if we didn't like it she had others but that was not necessary. Site was up front and easy in and out. We would definitely stay again passing through. It appears there may be some full timers in the campground however we were separated from them up front. - Dream Coach

Very similar to roughing it (mud and all) by the river, only with electric, water and sewer. Regardless of anything (State or personal emergencies), reservations not cancelled 7 days in advance are not refundable where other campgrounds did give us a refund due to a state declared emergency. Con's: Interface with management done only by phone. Reservation, check-in & problem resolution. Around 400 feet of very pot holed narrow driveway. Many potholes in little bit of asphalt then much more potholes in the more clay than gravel drive. (Very muddy when it rains). More long term "campers" in the park then recreational RV campers. Paper litter, cigarette butts, nuts & bolts, metal scraps found on camp sites. Bathroom & shower building is far from camping sites. Sites are close to each other. No fishing allowed. Pro's: 2 unisex bathrooms & showers were clean. Site utilities (electric, water & sewer) are convenient. Electric 30 amp circuit showed good connection and grounding. Reservation email sent with a site map document with your site. Picnic tables at each site. Nice river view. Common area gazebo with a fire pit and a little playground. Otherwise, utility hookups are located at the beginning of the pull through. If your connections are not long then your tow vehicle has to be detached and parked in front of your rig. Has the makings of a nice RV park...someday. - Sher Keb

This is a marina with an RV park. The full hook-up 30/50 amp sites have gravel pads surrounded by grass. They do not have picnic tables. The road into the park is gravel has some small holes so you have to drive slowly. We could not get anything on the satellite so we had to use the antennae for Huntsville stations. At the end of the RV park is a shaded grassy area next to the river. It has a dock, patio chairs and a great view of the Tennessee River. In the marina area is a small park with a gazebo, fire pit, benches, games and grill. It is not your typical RV park because the property also has a boat repair garage and storage for boats, trucks and trailers. The RV park also offers monthly rates. We had a pull-through site which was not on the river and did not have trees, however, some sites are on the river with trees. There are a lot of things to do in Decatur, so this park was a great home base off of Route 72/20. It is only 2 turns from I-65. This is a good place to stay when Point Mallard cannot take reservations, however, it is more expensive than Point Mallard. - Lini

I was headed from Scottsburg, Indiana to Mississippi when I called and made reservations at another local park, but upon arrival we could not fit in any of the spots they had available even after I made sure they knew I had a 42' ft triple axle trailer that I was pulling with a long bed 4 door 4x4 dually. We had been on the road all day and 5 miles from Decatur we had a blow out and were really ready to get off the road. I called Jay Landing from the first park drive way and explained my situation and they said that they would get us into a spot even if we had to pull across a couple of spots. Wow I was ready. I want to mention that this RV park is owed by our Veterans - God bless. It looks like they are making some improvement to the park. Pros - It is right on the water, so you can fish or just sit and watch the boats go by, the staff is very accommodating, water pressure is great, close to town, and it can be very peaceful when the metal yard is not active (it really wasn't that bad). Cons - the road coming in is rough (they grated it today and that helped some), there is a metal yard behind the park that can be noisy, needs some TLC. I have been RVing for a very long time. Is this one of the nicest parks I have ever stayed in - No. BUT, I had just had a blow out, showed up at a park that could not accommodate me, needed to get a new tire (there is a Good Year right across the road) and when I called and explained the mess I was in they said they would do whatever it took to get me in a spot for a few days even if they had to pull me across a few spots - kindness goes a long way with me. Another review mentioned a semi sharp curve to get in the park area - we just backed up once and came right on in. If I was passing by Decatur and needed a place to stay I would stay here again. - 42 Raptor

This park seems pretty run down in my opinion. There seemed like a lot of full time campers there, with built porches and junk all over their sites. The sites are not paved and aren't level. The sites are all packed in on top of each other. - Gregc2828
Aug 2018 - $28.00
233 FHU sites with 20 pull-thrus in a city park with lots of available activities. Mostly wooded campground with closely packed shaded sites. The park has a separate water park, golf course, tennis courts, ball fields and a year around ice rink. There is a paved bike path that goes into downtown Decatur. - Appleknocker

We just stayed overnight. This is a great place if you have kids especially. Lots of activities with a nearby amphitheater, tennis courts, etc. Really a good value to the price. Campground host was wonderful, lead us to our site and got us settled in. Lots of trees and shady. Right on a lake. - Eric & Michelle Newton

Nice park, nice owners, propane on site. Sites are spacious. Slow WiFi, and on weekends it get loud because of the tavern across the street from the campground. Not the owners fault. - bailmanFTRV
Jun 2012 - $20.00
Sites were gravel and mostly flat. Most of those there were seasonal it seemed. This campground is 22 miles from I-65 which we did not expect. And of course 22 miles back to the interstate. You have to use the Highway 64 address for your GPS. Minimal shade. We would not stay here again as it is too far off our I-65 route. - Sunne
May 2012 - $14.00
Passport rate for one night in a travel trailer. Would stay again, pull throughs, quiet, hookups readily available. I did have trouble finding it, my GPS didn't cooperate, so I called for directions. I left this review as it's been awhile since someone left one. - knhllh

We stayed here this visit because Verizon cell phone and data is so bad up at Monte Sano SP. Our site was level and woodsy. All utilities (water, electric, sewer) worked as advertised. I had to treat around the utility service area for ants. There was an active mound next to pad which I also treated. Bring army ant bait and red ant killer with you and treat your pad when you arrive. - moderate camper

Small park and extremely clean, most lots are fairly level. Would stay again. - bobbodean

This is a quiet camp ground generally. The price reflects the weekly rate. Most of the sights have dinner shade. It took a few blocks to level. Staff was pleasant and helpful. - Ugly SAM
