This place is the pits. By far the grossest, most unpleasant place I have ever been to. The staff were mutes. They did not make eye contact or acknowledge your presence unless you were holding a credit card. The grounds are a dump. The pool is filthy and unsafe. The playground consists of pieces from the dump and a few old tires. Everyone drinks and smokes ALL DAY. We were the only sober people walking around at noon. There is nothing to do here but drink. We thought of drinking the weekend away so we would be able to deal with this place but wanted to have our wits with us in case someone picked a fight with us or tried to steal our car. Don't go here, your sanity and life depends on it. - pookyellis

We were supposed to stay here back in November, but RV repairs caused us to cancel. My husband was very interested in staying here, so we took the opportunity on our way North. To say this is remote is an understatement, as others have said, it is out there! The campground is nice, with lots of tall trees that provide shade and block satellites, but don't give much privacy. One interesting thing, the campground loop is two lanes, so the inside pull thrus are very nice since they don't face the road.
When we hooked up we had problems with the 50amp, so we switched to 30amp. We informed the volunteer at the gate and he reported it, but didn't expect anyone to show up until the next day, which was fine. The next morning a nice man showed up and replaced the 50amp breaker in an absolute downpour! I didn't think anyone would even show with how bad the weather was, but he showed up and fixed our problem.
The restrooms were very clean, but the showers only have a single shower curtain, so they didn't feel too private. It's been quiet here, I never had anyone else in the bathhouse while I was showering, so it wasn't too bad. There is a laundry in the bathhouse, it always seemed to be in use as I walked by. There was one washer/dryer and it looked like it was $1.00 each.
If you don't boat/fish, there isn't much out here. The museum is closed until further notice, so we didn't get to visit. This is a great place to chill out and enjoy a good campfire, we bought $15 worth of wood from the country store 8 miles down the road.
We had no AT&T signal at the campsite, but we could get 2 bars and LTE by the museum. Our Verizon worked ok with our booster. - Uno Mas

Very nice, very quiet. The people running the park was very helpful and very friendly. Concrete Pad with fire ring and picnic table. You could not ask for much more. the only problem is that the camp is out in the middle of no where, but I will probably be returning. - tom riner

First of all I feel I should justify this review since one has not been done in a while. I am camping here during the winter months and a lot could change in the summer. Specific to winter is the park hours- you cannot get access between 3 pm and 6pm. This park is in the heart of Alabama deer country and apparently a private road access is required to enter the park and the owner leases his property and people hunt it daily. I am at Cedar Ridge lot 1 (only one of two drive thru sites) and it is gorgeous!! Quiet. Peaceful. Beautiful overlooking lake. Very few campers here at this time of year. Park staff accommodating. Well run during these months. Nothing to do locally but there is history here including indian baths and original Alabama state house (now a museum). Univ of South Alabama archeological sites. Make sure you enter off hwy 43 from the northern route (near Leroy H.S.- county road 34). The other route is fine but winding. Rural, country road access in good shape. NO handout with maps for guests?? The lake is an old limestone quarry and stocked with fish. All access to restaurants and stores in Jackson 25 mins away. I am a rare one in that I got wifi thru direct line-of-site to office with interior antenna. No cable and I got 4 over the air television channels after adjusting antenna (I am on a ridge!). My friend who is a local said a lot of work has been done here since he was last here. Swimming- shallow area for kids with water slide. Deep off the bank swimming could be dangerous if swimming outside accepted areas. Crystal Clear water! I am not sure if this is a one nite stay park- 20 minutes off highway. Depends on your schedule, I guess. Since it is winter the bathrooms are locked so I could not inspect. Plan to visit museum before leaving. Sites appear to be able to handle 5th wheels with tow vehicles easily. The park manager is a 6th generation local and knows the park and area very well. Easy to talk to. - BillyBobTX

We were told when making reservations that there was a large number of "permanent" campers and only a few sites available for short term rental. The park rules of a two week maximum stay was obviously not enforced. This park was poorly designed and managed. The road was rough and speed limits were not enforced. All traffic to the small beach area and to the boat landing, drives past the majority of campsites. Vehicles and boats were parked haphazardly, extension cords ran from power poles to makeshift campsites. Golf cart traffic added to the congestion. The website boasted of boat rentals, however the boats were in disrepair and not available. We had visited this park about 10 years ago, and were very disappointed this trip. - TheRoadrunner

First of all we were actually greeted by the host couple on duty and taken to our site. To have a host act like one (and another also offered any help we might need) was a treat. The second treat was the park itself. The site we were on was a pull through, spacious, included picnic table, grill, grill table and fire ring. We were right along the river and it was quiet, peaceful and lovely. We gave the park a nine only because there was no sewer hook up. The trails at the park provided some good exercise as you'd go up and down and around the wooded forest. We would certainly return here for a longer stay. We were only overnighters. - John-Jean

COE knows how to build dams/locks and RV campgrounds next to their manmade lakes. Roads: paved and easy access, sites all have 50/30/20 power and water, dump station on the way out. All sites have fire ring, lantern hook, picnic table, large gravel patio area, are spotless and are pretty level. Bathrooms were spotless as were the showers which had good pressure and plenty of hot water and were heated. 1 washer and dryer available in bath house. Verizon Phone and Mifi worked great. No wifi in the CG. Hosts were plentiful, friendly, and helpful. They have a 3 mile hiking trail (they call it 4 mile) and boat ramp. Tow boats go by most every day but are not a real noise issue. Boat ramp for fishing and power boats in CG. Note there is a low head dam about 1 mile down river from this boat ramp that will kill you if you go over it. The only down side was the abundance of poison ivy in the CG and surrounding woods. We were there during the spring and the frogs and gators provided a cacophony of tweets, croaks, grunts, peeps, and roars. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area. - pumper9x9

This small and cozy COE park is one of their best. Grounds are well cared for. The camp hosts and volunteers work hard to make your stay memorable and keep the place looking great. We stayed on site 14 which in our opinion is one of the nicest. All the sites are large and well spaced. The primary source of entertainment is the river barges. They are close and they run every day except Saturday. Hiking trails are not long but are easy and in good condition. The AT&T phone signal was weak at best but was serviceable. OTA television consisted of 4 very weak stations that were not worth the time to view so bring your satellite dish or DvD's if you want television. Bring your groceries as the only shopping is a well supplied General Dollar store. No fresh produce or meat but they have everything else. Great campground we will be back. - Micheal Whelan

We visited the park, but did not stay overnight. We found no sign of any caretaker, host, etc., and no sign indicating there was a camping fee. Phone numbers of two people in the county were provided on signs. It may be free. Campsites were mowed, and water spigots were operating. Could not test for electric service, but when I raised the unique panel lids, large, aggressive, and active paper wasp colonies were present. There were a number of odd bath houses with pitcher pump wells, and a several large group picnic facilities, all well maintained. As for camping, however, because of the remoteness, lack of a host or park manager, and the possibility of being totally alone in a very dark place, I would say to those who may consider camping here that you may be placing yourself in an unsafe environment for your property and possibly your life by staying overnight. Again, my opinion is that this unmanned, remote, and dark county park places an RVer at significant risk of being robbed, at minimum. I cannot recommend this Park to my fellow RVers. - The Happy Traveler

We were passing through the area and needed a roosting spot. We came into the park at about 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. No one was there--no other campers, no park employees. We selected one of the dozen or so pads. They were all level with full hookups. No shade. The 30 amp breaker tripped a couple of times during the night, and that was a bit eerie in a deserted park where you are the only campers. I cautiously went out to reset. Next morning no employee had arrived by 9am. I called the park number and was routed to park HQ in Montgomery. They asked me to kindly leave a check in the mail box. I thought it was a novel experience being all alone in the middle of no where but my wife was not comfortable with it. I think this park gets active in hunting season. It has a big deer dressing station. The park has a good history display board explaining its origin as a sulfur springs resort, and the old Roman baths built before the Civil War are still there to look at. - Tidy Boy

We stayed here on our way to Florida from Texas. We wanted to stay off freeways. This place is remote. We had a pleasant overnight stay, we were the only ones here. We got here, picked out a spot and hooked up. We were here an hour or so before the manager came to collect. He was very pleasant. There are springs here. There is a settlement of homes nearby so we could hear activity but we could not see anything due to the trees. They locked the gate at dark but the manager gave us the combination in case of emergency. I did not see any shower building. I saw what appeared to be a pit toilet only. - User1042
