This is an ideal park for travelers on I 20. Easy to get into and out of. It is a large parking lot next to a baseball stadium used for SEC playoff games. The city of Hoover is to be commended for providing such a nice RV facility. We will stay here any time we are in this area. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basically a parking lot near a stadium with flat level sites. Very little shade. Cable TV did not work and no WiFi. Verizon signal moderately strong. Good for an overnight stay. We would stay here again. Rate shown is with tax. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park! Self check in. Full 50 amp hookups. It is basically a big level parking lot behind the Hoover Met Baseball stadium. There are nice, well groomed grass islands scattered throughout the park. We always feel safe here and the best part for me was learning to drive and pull our forty foot trailer as there are several large empty parking lots to practice in. We were here during recent tornado activity and found several nearby office buildings in which to weather the storm with your vehicle and others from the park. Wi-Fi is good, nearby groceries, and restaurants are suitable. We will return when in the area. If you like BBQ be sure to try Southern Legacy. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Located behind the baseball park. All concrete drive and parking pads, very level, and park is well lighted at night. Very well manicured and maintained. Spaces are huge. We stayed in the white section. No pool, baths, showers and no onsite office, just a drop box for payment. There may be a office at the stadium Monday-Friday, but no one on weekends. I was told there was a security patrol. Lighted at night. We were here for 3 nights and would return. Many motor homes were parked but no one in them. Like storing them, but there is a limitation in staying, so check. We were there during the early April heavy rains, but no flooding or standing water and easy access to highway. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This public city park attendant to a baseball stadium is basically a big blacktop parking lot with excellent basic services. Sites are back to back using common utilities and sloped slightly for drainage; oriented correctly we were able to use our landing legs to level out nicely. There are trees and grass like in any shopping center parking lot and though I saw a sign for a nature trail I never say the actual trail. The area is well patrolled by police and appeared very safe. It is 15 minutes from downtown Birmingham. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As the other reviews have stated, this a stadium parking lot. They have full hookups but no bathroom or showers available. It is not easy to find, but they do have signs directing you to the RV Lot once you find the stadium. We stayed here for two nights to visit the Barber Motorsports Museum which was about 20 miles away. The area felt safe other than the hunters in the surrounding woods and the occasional shotgun blast. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean, well-located in a safe, quiet residential area. Good access from I-459 via good roads. Not located where "Streets & Trips" has it, but close; instead use Regions Park stadium as the GPS destination. All sites are pull through, paved, almost level, and roomy enough. High water pressure; use regulator. Excellent access to Galleria Mall, where there is good food. This park is spartan in nature, but good for the purpose of a place to safely and comfortably park. We will stay here again when in the area. There are no showers, toilets, or laundry. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Its a OK short term but overpriced. It properly covers the people that don't pay. Would come back again just for a over nite. Sites listed as pull through but they are not, unless you block the travel lane. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

As previously stated this is not a park, it is a parking lot. It is, however, completely paved so no mud or rocks to deal with. Spaces are wide. It is really tricky to find a spot that does not require intense work trying to get level. Whether or not you like it, it is almost the only game in town. Birmingham area is really lacking in RV parks. We were here in May and July of 2011. Two RVs that were here last year are still here even though there is a 90 day limit for staying here. People drive in and fill their tanks with water: for free. And some have driven in, used the sewer connections and left: again, for free. The City of Hoover could make a lot more money if they had someone here to collect fees for those services. It is possible to stay here overnight and leave early enough without paying. That happens here, too. We stayed 10 days and saw much misuse of this park. It is expensive for a parking lot with absolutely no facilities at all but there is no other place to stay while visiting friends and family. We will probably have to return here again in the future. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for 3 weeks while my wife finished up her work. It was a good park for short stays. It gets very hot in summer. The baseball park is just down the hill, and you get a nice fireworks show on weekends when the Barons are in town. There is much to do close by. We well stay here again when in Birmingham for a short visit. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As previous posters have stated "It's a parking area near a stadium". The parking area is slanted and you need to find a area that is fairly flat so your front wheels aren't off the ground when leveling. After having my 50amp breaker trip a few times and then talking with others I find that the electric is marginal. Only about 20 RV's here and we had problems. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the most outstanding "parking lot" we have ever stayed in. Secluded, quiet, large parking lot surrounded by mature tree's, next to a baseball stadium, surrounded by an upscale neighborhood. The parking lot is all concrete with large islands of grass and trees at the ends and middle of each row. Area is clean and well maintained. All sites are pull through and are just long enough for 40 ft MH. If the park was full, you would need to disconnect your tow. All utilities, including full cable TV, are in modern posts between each site. Sites are side by side and would be tight if the park was full. Sites are first come, first served, but you can call ahead to check availability. You pick up an envelope on your way in, select a site. Suggest you take an end site if available. Fill out the envelope, put in cash or check (CC are 4% more) and deposit the envelope in the box. Area is well lit with plenty of trash cans. Shopping is close by, as are all attractions in Birmingham. No restrooms or laundry. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a nice basic local park. Good FHU sites with cable and Wi-Fi that worked well. No services other than the FHU. Even though there was no host, we felt very comfortable staying in the park. They don't accept reservations except during the baseball tournament. Not a problem since the park was about half occupied. Nice location near town, restaurants, and shopping. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

As the previous review noted, this is nothing more than a glorified RV parking lot. The hook-ups are "top of the line" and better than anything I've ever seen before. Everything is fully integrated into a fancy tower except the sewer connection which is built into the concrete "island". The entire parking area is in a mountainous area so many of the sites aren't level. However, during our stay there were plenty of sites available and as we were also inundated with lots of rain, the run-off was a benefit. One interesting feature (besides the nearby baseball stadium) was a hiking trail that was well-marked and clearly maintained that led down the back side of the mountain to the Cahaba River. It's well worth exploring. As the previous reviewer noted, this is a good place to stop to get off the road for one or two nights, but the price seems a little high to me. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Okay, no reasonable person would consider this RV park to be a destination. It’s a really big parking lot. If you are like us and you need a place to park, connect, sleep and get on your way again, it’s perfect. You pull off the freeway, navigate about 3 or 4 miles through a nice industrial area following the blue RV Parking signs and find a very large parking lot with little RV islands. I assume that this lot is used frequently during football games for tailgating, but we were glad it was available for a brief stopover (in some really bad storms). You’ll find a bulletin board with rules and payment envelopes. It was $31 and some change for an overnight stay (a little high, but we were tired of driving in the storms and we weren’t complaining). The pull-throughs were not long enough for our 39 footer plus toad, so we did have to disconnect in the rain. That’s why I didn’t give it a 10. (Because I had to get wet!) We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.
