It is a parking lot with full hook ups. Assuming you can park next to your coach (we were able to) the sites are roomy and getting around is fine. If fully loaded and the spot next to you is taken by an RV then it is very tight, as the sites are not long enough for a coach and a car. Surprisingly, the WiFi worked well when we were there. They will be closing I believe in June for a year so not sure what the park will look like after the rebuild. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This "campground" is basically a parking lot they have added full hookups to. The price is extremely steep for what you are getting, and when we were here on a Saturday night, there was a some sort of event happening in the stadium next door that involved very loud (and bad) music until 10pm. I would have said it was fine for an overnight stay, but the noise from the event coupled with the fact that it's not that easy to get to, I would not recommend it. I would never want to stay here for an extended period of time, because there is no separation between sites. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

NOTICE - Hoover RV Park will be closed from June 1, 2016 until May 1, 2017 due to construction and expansion on the property. A new sport complex will be built adjacent to the RV Park and additional RV sites will be included.
Currently, only a portion of the park is available, and is very crowded as a result. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice place to stopover as it is right off the interstate and located in a suburb of Birmingham. All sites are pull through. You have to unhook if you're towing and total length is longer than 45'. There are no bath houses currently (2016) but they will be available after the park reopens in 2017. Full hookups including 50 amp service but spotty Wifi at best.

This was posted at the park March 2, 2016: "The Hoover RV park will be temporarily closed effective June 1, 2016. The RV Park will reopen on May 1, 2017. The park is also sold out for the SEC Baseball Tournament which runs from May 20 - May 30, 2016. For any questions you can call (866) 466-8378." We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hoover RV Park is just a big paved parking lot, but it was pretty quiet and the hookups worked. We felt relatively safe. It was hard to know who was running the place, and I don't think the trash is picked up every day like they say it is--but other than that, I can't think of any negatives. There's a grocery store very near by. We'd stay there again. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a large concrete parking lot next to a baseball stadium. Every site is a pull through with full hookups and there are trash cans spaced around the area. We never saw an attendant of any kind but people staying there are friendly, and there was a crowd! Payment is via a self pay system and there are no reservations. It's first come, first served. You drive through a very nice commercial office area to get to the park and that seems strange. It was quiet at night and we felt very safe. We would use this park again if in the area.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need to stay near Birmingham or are just passing through this area, this is a good place to stay. It feels isolated and safe and is very easy to access and is very close to the Interstate. To be as close as it is to the highway, it was very quiet. We found diesel for our truck only a mile away but we didn't check out the area other than that.

Big parking lot with no one really on duty after about 4:00 PM. Register with the honor system at a drop box. Full hook-ups. Good for an overnight stay, or for the SEC Baseball championship in May. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great overnight stop with full hookups.

Basically a big parking lot. No playground, no showers or bathrooms. Right next to a good sized baseball stadium.

Would be perfect if the sites were long enough to keep the truck hitched- but, 50' is a lot to ask. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here overnight. It was very quiet and the pads are asphalt and level. All the sites are pull through. We were told we could stay hooked up to our vehicle since we're were just passing through however that's not the case. You will have to unhook your towing vehicle or your towed vehicle. If you use the WiFi get ready for a great experience. It is free and no password and it is super fast. Best we have ever had in our travels. We will stay here again.

Decent for a night or two if you want to visit Birmingham, but understand that this is a concrete parking lot next to the regular parking lot of a large baseball stadium that isn't used 99% of the time. You get full hookups & a large garbage can, but that's it. No bath house/toilets/showers - you must be self-contained. No fires allowed. No picnic tables. Quiet & easy to drive to. No office; leave cash in a box or call office to pay via credit card. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
