This is an interesting CG to rate. We were there for a one night stop over on our way North. There are some really great sites that boarder the river. These are mostly back ins and would be terrific if we were going to spend a few days in the area. The CG is mostly a peninsula formed by the river so it has some natural ambience. There is a very nice river walk all the way around as well as some interior walking trails. The transient sites are parking lotish and tend to be quite close together. Fortunately, it appears that they only use every other site where we were located. If a camper were next to us, we could not have opened our awning.
The pool and facilities were outstanding and could be a model for other CGs. There is no dog park.
Access to and from the highway was excellent and straightforward. The staff was friendly and helpful.
All in all, this is is a good camp ground that has the potential to be great. We would stay here again. We camped at River Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is beautiful and very clean. We were just passing thru but would love to come back and spend a few days there. Only negative was not convenient to Interstate but worth the extra miles. Enjoyed the walk around the water and great place to walk our two dogs. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is located right on the river in Gadsden. Even if you do not get a river side site, you will enjoy beautiful river views. We were in a pull-through site and enjoyed a nice view of the river from inside our RV. There is a nice walking path along the river with swings along the path to sit and relax. The sites are spacious and the utilities work well. (Good water pressure and wifi.) The roads and sites are all gravel and not particularly smooth.

The pools in the park are exceptional. There are three pools (including an infinity pool and a zero-entry child's pool) and a splash pad, all enclosed in a fenced area and located right by the river. Best pools anywhere! We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy access from I 759. Park is clean, scenic, has nice swings facing the river, and nice walking paths. Sites are level and long enough for our 40 ft. 5th wheel and truck. We have visited here many times and will continue to do so. The roads and some sites could use more gravel. We camped at River Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Guided to site 10 PT that was large enough for 62' rig & toad. Easy access off I-59 with Big Rig and within park. Roads & sites gravel and all utilities worked as should. Cable TV did not work but Wifi was excellent. Park had received much rain over past week but no standing water. Site was waterfront and many sites are back-in on waterfront. Beautiful and clean park. Security gates for entry & exit. Experienced one tree limb that needed cut but did not see others. Would stay here again. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night but would stay again. The individual that parked us was excellent and you could tell had done this before. Upon arrival I was given a wooden "rose" for my wife, what a nice surprise. Security was very good. We camped at River Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location in Gadsden on the Coosa River and Lake Gadsden. Full hookups worked well and WiFi was good. The restrooms are very nice and thoroughly cleaned daily. We had a site on the water and yes, the sites are narrow. Also, the driveways are in bad shape and the site was a mix of dirt, mud and gravel. Not necessarily the fault of the park but we were besieged by tiny flies. Due to the price (I would be less critical at $30-32 per night) I must mention the negatives but otherwise we had a pleasant experience here. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

The camp could use some upgrading (new water connections for one thing. The ones in place are at ground level and we decided to use the water in our tank instead.) but it is on a beautiful site, right on the river. Friendly owners. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground has a nice "park" feel and there is a big public park right next to it. Nice place to take a good walk. They are going to decorate the trees with lights for the holidays. With the very pretty large lights along the river it should be beautiful.

Stayed here a few years ago and nothing has changed. Water is hard to get to, sites unlevel, and narrow. Nice location but really needs some upgrading and crushed stone. Gave it a 7 then; dropping it down one as nothing has improved. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is well taken care for. The entire grounds are spotless and the three pool areas were well maintained. I do not normally give ten ratings but this park had more amenities like swings all along walkways and the river. We intend to return and watch the dragon boats. The staff were all friendly and catered to us several times. Small picnic tables. We camped at River Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Note to incoming RV'ers. There are two River Roads. Google Maps sent us to the wrong one which is in a neighborhood on the river in Southside, Al. We were stuck and had to back into a driveway to turn around. The lady told us many rigs do the same thing. This park is in the middle of Gadsden across from the mall. If you see houses on narrow streets this is not the right River Road. You should see fast food places and overpasses.

Very nice park. Some sites in wooded area and along river, some in more open area. Some road noise from on-ramp next to north end of property. Excellent staff, great amenities and easy access. Walking path along river was very nice and property also has a small chapel. Sites in our area were a little dusty but hook-ups were well located and plenty of room - wooded area and along river sites were a bit tighter. Most picnic tables were old and could stand to be replaced. Flip Side Cafe across the street was pretty good. Within about 10 minutes of WalMart and some chain restaurants. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

I really liked this campground, though it was near impossible to maneuver my 45' rig into a spot. With some excellent guidance from staff and the watchful eye of my wife, we made it. Barely. The swimming pools are pretty nice (deep blue from a liner in the cement pond) one of which is an infinity pool. Sites are available on the river and the bay for $2/night more, and worth that little bit. The do niggle the prices a bit too much, but it's still relatively inexpensive. I had to leave one night early and no refund, but they tell me I will have a credit for the next time, which is reasonable. They need to make bigger sites. Yes, they give you two because one couldn't possibly fit a motorhome and a towed, but if they reconfigured to have fewer, larger spaces everyone would be happier. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.
