Roads are very narrow. Gate entering the campground area itself is very narrow. (A lot of paint scrapings on the gate posts). First site we were in was very unlevel (site P49). Also, we couldn't open our bedroom slide due to the power meter being so high. There was a dog chained up outside all day and night that barked all the time. Roads and sites are not big rig friendly. There was an additional $5.00 per night fee for "park amenities", which I assume was for the boat ramp, which we didn't use. Didn't see any other "park amenities", that aren't in other campgrounds. We camped at Decatur / Wheeler Lake KOA in a Truck Camper.

Staff were very friendly and it seems to be a very neat and quiet KOA right on the water. It's off the beaten path, so no traffic noises at night like most KOA's. Seems to be only 4 sites with full hookups and at least one was a permanent resident, so make reservations ahead of time. Wished we had more time to explore the amenities of this site, but were just passing through. We camped at Decatur / Wheeler Lake KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is a little more expensive than most in the area but it is the perfect example of what camping is all about. Almost all of the sites are on the lake or within a few steps of the lake. It is clean, quiet and, best of all, the sites are very large and shady. Our site was a back-in with a multi-level patio that stepped right down to the water. It was a great spot for fishing right from the patio. The campground only has a few sites with sewer hookups because of TVA environmental restrictions by the lake. They do have an easy to access dump station. The restrooms were clean and easy to use. The boat ramp was large enough for most small craft fishing boats. There is no pool but the beach was clean and a good place to swim. The park is well laid out with many large shade trees. There is no cable or Wi-Fi at each site. With the beautiful lake, the fishing, and the abundant wildlife that rambles through the park we didn't miss the TV or Wi-Fi at all. If you're looking to spend a few days at a clean quiet campsite on a lake I highly recommend this KOA. We camped at Decatur / Wheeler Lake KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Huntsville Space and Rocket Center is a great place to visit and learn about the evolution and historic achievements of the USA's space programs. The exhibits of the space shuttle, the Saturn V rocket, the Space Station and many more displays are incredible. A fun and amazing place for all ages.
