We love this park. Almost one there this time of year. Very large sites, trees, water, quiet. The camp host and maintenance folks are very friendly and helpful. And the red-headed woodpeckers and other birds are a treat. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Well maintained COE park. Very good layout with good spacing between campers. All the waterfront sites are low to the water, which makes for an easy kayak/canoe launch, or boat parking. One bathhouse for approx 50 sites. There is a large convenience store 1/2 mile outside the gate which has basic supplies, live bait and even a small restaurant; a real grocery store is approx 5 miles away in town. Most sites are very large and shady. There is a 1/2mile nature trail. TV reception is good - approx 9 channels, Verizon coverage is 3/5 bars. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have a kayak or canoe, paddle South to the left hand bend (large house on the left). After the left hand bend, look to the right - there are several canoe trails through the glades and pads that run to the main river. Lots of wildlife in the maze of canoe trails.

We stayed three nights at Jennings Ferry Campground. The COE has a wonderful Park and maintains the park. The Hosts are friendly and answered questions regarding the area. One Host helped gather firewood for a cookout. The sire was concrete and level with a asphalt approach. The morning we departed the Park Superintendent stopped and introduced himself. We will stay here in the future! We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Golden Age card discount. Do not use GPS to get here, use park directions. Pretty enough, small Army Corp of Engineer Park located just outside of Eutaw. On the good side, the park stayed fairly quiet at night. The sites are generous and nicely spaced. The spaces along the creek are more used; the spaces on the outer loop away from the water seem quieter. There is a large variety of birds in the park to watch. Barges go up and down the river and are fun to watch as they negotiate the tight turns of the river. There is a small walking trail in the park. Walking and bike riding are both good. The park is located on the Black Warrior River and Clear Creek. There is no COE presence in the park; it's all volunteer hosts. The hosts were very polite and helpful. There is one washer and dryer for the park, at $1.00 each. On the less good side, the park seemed to have a lot of trash, especially along the creek and river banks; walking trail had trash on it. This was possibly due to local school breaks going on; there were a lot of children in the park. Litter wasn't excessive, but it was constant. Dog leash rule was not enforced, or if it was, only very loosely. On several occasions there were loose dogs roaming the park, some may have been from the local neighborhood. This is not a secure park; there is an open walking path with parking just outside the main gate. So while they close the gates at night to vehicular traffic, there is a lot of pedestrian traffic coming and going through that gate at all hours, especially on the weekends. The area around that path can get noisy because of it. We might stay here again if in the area. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Truman's for BBQ in Eutaw, Magnolia House tour in Greensboro. Also, go to Aliceville AL, about 25 miles from Eutaw. Awesome museum there about the German POW camp during WWII. If you don't mind a drive, a visit to the Old Cahawba town site (site of AL's first state capitol) is well worth a trip. It's down near Selma.

Wow. What a campground. Trees. Water. About a ten minute drive off I-20, but well worth it. Paved throughout, with concrete pads. We even had a wooden deck at our site on the water. Highly highly recommend. We camped here overnight. Will definitely be back. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet clean park. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful too. Our 6 year old grandson enjoyed fishing on the bank at our site also got a thrill seeing barges on the river. Another interesting thing, we watched an egret fishing on the edge of the water on the next site when all at once he caught a snake and gobbled it down. We managed to get satellite through the trees. Our rate was the senior pass. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This COE Park is a hidden treasure. It's kinda out in the middle of nowhere but Well worth the finding. It is clean, level, and just beautiful. Sites are paved and level. You can tie your boat up at your site on some waterfront sites as well as fish from the bank at your site. They have a great nature trail and a nice boat launch. Great place to ride bikes, nice surrounding neighborhood. Hosts are A+++ all the way. Bathhouses are immaculate and heated. We rode our bikes and walked a lot thru the whole campground and decided that there are NO bad sites here. Not one. This park is really a hidden treasure. We paid $11 night w/senior pass. I love this park and will go there every chance I get. Don't forget to visit the "Roebucks Landing" store and restaurant for awesome food and service. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is a typical COE campground in that it's very well laid out and maintained. The sites are nicely spaced for plenty of privacy and ease of parking. Most sites are extremely long and will handle the largest RV. The bathhouse has one washer and one dryer that worked well and were only $1.00 per load. We enjoyed the one hiking trail and seeing the barges on the river. There are a lot of fishermen here. The downside to this campground is the location. The surrounding area appears to be very rundown with very little to offer in the way of grocery shopping, etc. We would stay here again on a brief stopover while traveling.

The usual well done neat Corp of Engineer campground. Well paved tarmac roads, and long tarmac level sites, a few drive through, most back in. Between The Black Warror River and a large creek with many sites bordering the water. Some barges go by to see. Bathhouses very clean and neat. Boat ramp. Nature trail. Pleasant talkative staff. About 5 miles south of Eutaw, Alabama, with two abrupt 90 degree turns through the center of the small town. Lots of old Southern mansions in Eutaw to view. With Golden Age passport, $9 off water, $10 by water sites. I would stay there again. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Price reflects access pass discount. Another fantastic COE park, lack of sewer hookups or Wi-Fi keeps it from getting a 10. Great friendly hosts, perfect electric, water and absolutely perfectly level concrete pads. Approx. 9 miles from rt. 20. Parks like these should be prototypes for private parks on how a campground should be put together. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

If you don’t mind being locked in at night you may like this park. When checking in you are warned that after 10 p.m. you will be allowed to leave for emergencies but not allowed back in until 6 a.m. Lots of shade and lake access. Nice fragrance of mothballs sprinkled around the camp sites in an unsuccessful attempt to keep the mosquitoes at bay. Free firewood! We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We were only here for a night but could have stayed for 2 weeks. The only reason it's not a 10 is they have no sewer hookups. It is the best COE campground we have seen. Air conditioned restrooms and a laundry. Some of the back-in sites are close to a 100 feet long and some of the pull-through sites are about 150 feet long. We would stay here again.

A great park with no sewer connections being the only thing that would keep us from staying for a longer time. Shaded sites: long, level and paved. Some sites are waterfront with decks and with built-in seating. We really liked this park and would stay here again. We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a newer campground. We loved it. The bathroom/shower facilities were very clean. Every site is a nice site. . . we could not really decide which one was the best! We are planning on coming back here soon! We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.

What a wonderful campground! It is the best kept secret around. Our site required no leveling at all, as a matter of fact, I didn't see anyone that needed to do any leveling. The restrooms were cleaned daily and are kept in like new condition. We had a deck on our site where we could sit and look at the water. The only reason I didn't rate the park a "10" is because there is no sewer hook up. Most of the sites have some shade at some point in the day. We can't wait to go back and hope to get a site where we can watch the barges go by! We camped at Jennings Ferry Campground COE in a Motorhome.
