1 Park near Florence, Alabama

We read the reviews on RVPR and thought this would be a good stop on our way North. We were very surprised when we arrived. The sites are paved and have full hookups, so that is good. Some are under tall pines, others are not, but don't offer any privacy but will block satellites. We opted for one not under the trees and selected a back in closest to the river, one of two available. The pad is fairly wide, but there is a concrete picnic table on it, we were pretty close to the edge of the pad and we couldn't walk between the table and the slide.
When we were setting up a neighbor let us know that we should make sure our bicycles on the back of our RV were locked up, since people going to the fishing pier drive behind us at all hours. We had to be careful our bikes didn't stick out in the road, but we didn't have any problems with anyone messing with them.
The road in the campground is narrow and a little bumpy. The lots at the back seemed smaller, there were several where we wouldn't be able to park our truck, but I think our 5er would fit in most of them.
My husband is a senior and we paid $25/night, the sign said $20/night for seniors. He questioned the lady checking us in and she said we were getting the senior rate. For various reasons, we decided to leave a day early. We were told that we wouldn't get our money back, and that was fine. Our neighbors wanted the site for his father-in-law and offered to pay for the night we already paid for. They come here often and when he paid us he gave us $20. I have the feeling we were taken by the nice lady in the office.
The location is great, very convenient to historic Florence and it restaurants. Drive a bit further and there are numerous big box stores and chain restaurants. - Uno Mas

Park does not accept reservations but when I called the office the woman said call back just before you get here. We decided to drive to the park anyway and found a site one row off the water. Was interesting watching the barges up and down the river, lots to see and do in the area. Park was clean, sites were not at all close as in previous review, been to others with less space. Reason I did not give this park an excellent review was for the no reservations and the water/sewer connections were a stretch. - Colette

This was our second visit to this campground. It is a city/county owned campground on the banks of the Tennessee River. It is part of a park which has a marina & boat ramp as well as a small beach area. The campground has pull-through and backin sites. There are no reservations but is first-come availability. We had no problems in our 43 ft. Motorhome and will return when in the area. - John & Bobbie
