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.

This is the second time we stayed here and it had improved since last year even though we loved it last year! The pool area is even more beautiful than before. The people in the office couldn't be nicer. I wish we had another day or so here. It has gravel roads and it's kinda messy when it rains but we still Love it!

Gravel roads and sites, not much grass around. It is right on the river, so nice setting. Good water pressure and WiFi. The electrical power is towards the front of the site, but not a problem. Cable was good. We were escorted to the site and the staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at River Country several times. It is a nice, clean campground. The staff take you to the site and help you. We use this as a stop over to visit family. It is gated and secure. The management are upgrading different things and the grounds are looking great. We will continue to stay here. We camped at River Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, quiet, beautiful pools, and nice river views. Lots of good dog walking. There had been a lot of rain when we were there, but they were working hard to make everything right. Gated and seemed secure. Some road noise, but we were not bothered by it. Not sure on the rate but it was close to $35. We camped at River Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in October. I have mixed feelings about this park, weighing more to the positive. This park sits on a beautiful piece of real estate--surrounded on two sides by water, the Coosa River and Lake Black Creek. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There were a couple of current construction projects to improve the park--a new pool and a new very long dock with at least 20 boat slips. The office area was nice and beautifully landscaped. I used the laundry facilities, which were neat and clean. There were five washers and I think five or six dryers, all of which were working. Unfortunately, there were a couple of negatives about the park...the roads were badly in need of repair. The sites are not paved, but pretty level. Because the park was not full, the manager allowed us to use an adjacent space for our tow truck, which we appreciated because we are not sure where we would have parked it otherwise. There were several, what appeared to be, long-term trailers that were not occupied--maybe used for weekends--some could have used some tidying up of "stuff" around the trailers. Also, the spaces were extremely close together. Luckily for us, there were lots of available spaces so we did not have anyone right next to us. Cable worked well as did the WIFI. Highway noise from I-759, but not horrible. With some additional improvements, this could be a gem of a park. We camped at River Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park close to shopping and restaurants. Sites are gravel, long and level. Park is on the river, with a wooded area in the middle with a trail, great for walking dogs. This was just an overnight stop for us. We would certainly stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at River Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Location is one of park's best assets. Right off I-759, a couple blocks from all kinds of shopping/restaurants, yet on a dead end peninsula road with country atmosphere, medium lake and next to Coosa River with boating. Plus swimming pool, shallow pool, splash pad, playground. Roads paved, gravel level sites, many in trees so our roof satellite limited to where we could park NOT under trees. Clean restrooms & laundry although air conditioning was minimal in that part of building, which was not in keeping with quality of rest of park. Also has a large storm shelter. Enjoyed our short stay. Would definitely come back and stay longer. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.
