The park needs TLC. The bathrooms were dirty and full of bugs.
The Wifi and cable were not available.
The owner was friendly on the phone, no staff was present on site.
Expensive for a pad to park for the night. - Dksnapshots

Site dirty and trash everywhere. Cable and WiFi not working. Becoming a full timers park. This place needs to be closed so that a real RV park can open. Office staff never present. - travelingbone1

We were looking for an overnight spot near Tuscaloosa. Other than the COE site that would have involved extra driving, this seemed to be the only place. We should have driven the extra miles. We called ahead to check on spaces and were told that "she" might not be there when we arrived. We arrived during a thunderstorm. "She" was not there. The self check-in at the "welcome center" was conducted in a swelteringly hot, poorly lit building with a hand-drawn, difficult to read facility map. Since it was storming, we had little choice and picked a site that seemed to have the fewest vertical cracks in the concrete. Old patio furniture was thrown in the woods as well as old wooden privacy fences. We did not encounter another human being the entire night. - Chaplin

No reservations taken here. They say it stays mostly open but some weekend events can fill it up. Call ahead. They will tell you to go pick a spot and call it in. Pay close attention to the camp map. The sites with full hookups are 50 amp only. I didnt pay attention after completely setting up and making that discovery. Leveling necessary on nearly every site up to as much as 3 and 4 inches. Lost of shade and openness. You have to pay for a day (1 day) pass even with the camp fee. You have complete freedom of the archeological park all night even after closing to the public if you want to commune with the ancient spirits. The museum is excellent. - Tidy Boy

Angle will check you in and give you lots of information - great personally and very good with people. The final fee includes and campsite rate plus the park admission fee for each person. Campground is old and is scheduled for a make-over. Hook ups are mostly on the wrong side for RVs. The bath/shower building is clean and everything works. Specific sites are difficult to locate so we just parked on the grass near our hook ups. Some pull-thrus, some sites with sewer, the community dump is worthless and impossible to use. We dumped in an unoccupied site that had a sewer hookup. - Livermorered

Stayed here for a week while visiting in area. Kind of a primitive area but for the price you cannot complain. People were very helpful with park information as well as area information. Only problem was the front gate lock if you came in after park closed. It was a combination lock and extremely hard to open. Other than gate lock loved this place. Coming in at night I have never seen the number of deer as this place has at night. Will stay here again. - Alapawpaw

Very nice campground. We were on site 40 witch is a nice paved and long pull through. Water and 50 amp electric. Nice large gravel patio. With Dish satellite we were only able to pick up one of the three satellites (had to set Dish on top back end of RV). I checked other areas around the campsite with a sat finder app and really couldn't find a better spot. Also was able to get several over the air TV channels. Verizon cell service was 2 bars also. Bathrooms and showers were very well maintained and clean and were heated in winter cooled in summer. Maintenance of campsites was also very well kept and clean. Hosts were very nice and also informative of the area. Several water front sites have nice wood decks also. Beautiful area with a short hiking trail and boat launch. - ToniM

We were traveling south on I-59 when we stumbled on this gem of a campground. We called to check on availability and were told to come on down...the host on duty was friendly and helpful...our site was on a concrete pad right on the river. There were 20/30/50 amp electric hook ups with no power issues and city water...the facilities were clean and it shows the pride they take in the campground. There is no television reception, but we were able to stream Netflix using a Verizon hotspot. I highly recommend this park if in the area. - Jgrif72

As usual, C.O.E. parks are great except for not having sewer connections. Our site was huge, well spaced from others and the park was very quiet. Trees prevented satellite on our site but others would work. If this is important ask to tour the CG and pick from available sites. - Grumpier99

we stayed in 45. it was unleveled but no big deal . the park was very nice and clean. it has a lot of things to do on the water. a lot of trees and a good fire ring. the only complaint I have is there was no Verizon or att service where we were. there maybe other places in the campground that has service. I would recommend staying there. - 1coolhall

Our first trip in the travel trailer. We stayed this past weekend with 3 kids. They said we should come back and that's usually a good sign. We had site 24, across from bath/shower facilities. This came in handy so the kids were not in and out of the trailer. Had full hook ups. It has a beach area with roped of swimming. Paddle boats, boat ramp, playground. No cell service with Verizon but not a problem as it was good to disconnect everyone and have family time. The park ranger drove around several times and also let us know of a storm coming it as to be aware. There was a deck on our site with a nice big table, which I liked because we had space to set our chairs. Plenty of Shade through out park. - Threegrits

This park has so much potential its such a shame to see it seemingly so neglected by Alabama State Parks. It's being slowly updated (adding 50A and sewer to sites); but many of the sites are tiny and extremely un-level. Our site was paved and barely wider than the camper - stepping out the front door and you were stepping into the park road. The level left to right was off by a full 6". Driving around I saw several sites that were on such a steep hill a 5th wheel camper had the nose almost on the ground and the wheels a good 8-10" on blocks to get level. Check in and reservations are confusing. You have to pay to reserve a spot, but you are only guaranteed a spot, not a particular site. So even with a reservation and arriving mid-week; if someone else decided to extend their stay or just showed up with no reservation 5 min before you they can get the prime spot and you're stuck with the leftovers. Check in after hours was confusing as the after-hours info is on the back side of the booth and not visible as you enter. The only instruction plaque has a number to call for after hours assistance, but there is almost zero cell reception around the park. With proximity to Tuscaloosa for University of Alabama games, great beach and mountain biking trails, this park has a lot of potential. It's too bad to see it fall so short. - joshjack

This is a great overnight park or for couple days. No frills Has side by side hookups with concrete in between sites for all hookups. Very clean. Also has concrete patio and gravel level sites. We feel we scored. All spots are pull thru. We didn’t have to unhook our tow car. - Cynlruss

This was just an overnight. Wouldn't do much more. Gravel parking lot with some grass in between sites that needed to be cut. FHU Cable was very fuzzy, hard to watch and WiFi was very poor. - milodog

This was OK for a quick overnight but would not necessarily suggest for more than that. My husband went into the restroom to take a shower and there was a drunk man passed out against the door. - Cathy Roark

The Happy Camper gave an excellent write of this camp. I sure learned a lot for him/her. We were able to have a campfire on our site in the provided fire ring which was real nice. We are not on top of one another which is a real plus to. The Camp Host, was very nice and went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our site. Have the river here is lovely. Demopolis AL is nine miles south and has any amenities you may need. I would love to come back again. - 2Old2Worry

This mixed sun and shade hardwood forested campground is located along the bluffs of McConnico and Taylor Creeks, which are meanders of the Tombigbee River. Although there is no barge traffic, power boats contribute some noise. Campsites are located about 15 to 20 feet above the creeks, making for a fairly nice view of the water. Sites 3 - 32 are all waterfront or waterview. Sites 11 and 12 are pull-throughs, but are also directly across from the dual direction dump station and bath house. Site 21 was the crown jewel of the sites. Nice for sunsets and as a lookout for inbound tornadoes. Sites 5 and 6, as well as 31 and 32, are shared family sites. Spacing between sites is anywhere from 35 to 80 feet. With only a few exceptions, there is no vegetation between sites. Sites themselves are mostly large to downright spacious with large aluminum picnic tables, living areas, fire rings, and lantern posts. There is an older "overflow" loop (sites 33 - 42) which is fully wooded, quiet, a bit nostalgic (all fine gravel with concrete picnic tables), and private, but with no water view. Unlike paved sites 1-32 which have 50/30 amp/water, the overflow is all pull through fine gravel sites with 30 amp and water only. Site 42 in overflow was particularly nice and private. The one shower house is modern and well kept, and includes a coin laundry. Hosts are all business with a smile. Some Corps rules are loosely enforced or not enforced at all (pets off leashes, cars and trailers parked on grass, RV storage, etc.). Strong OTA TV reception from PBS, but CBS and ABC from Montgomery were in and out, and there was no NBC or FOX. Sprint phone was 1 to 3 bar for voice (consistent), but erratic 3G/1x for data. Bring supplies and fuel, nothing in Forkland. Railroad crossing on the road to the CG is active, respect the STOP sign. Overall, a nice, quiet campground, and a good place to relax. - The Happy Traveler

Quiet and secluded campground. Hosts were friendly. Campground is well maintained and clean.
TV reception over the air was extremely limited. Cell phone service was One Bar (Verizon).
Has nature trail, boat ramp, and wooden stairs that provide access from the campground to McConnico Creek. The creek leads to the Tombigbee River.
Plenty of birds for those who enjoy bird watching and photography. Saw Bluebirds, Wood Peckers, Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Heron, and many more. Heard Turkeys when walking the nature trail. - Navretiree

Took 3 days to contact someone about reservations. They don't normally have pull through to accommodate a 60 ft total, motorhome + toad, but the manager found a site, 34, that worked for us. Seemed to be mostly campers for workers in the area, their sites were neat. No amenities except for a dog area. - dlfishing

During football season this park has two sections: one for seasonal tailgaters (you won't get into it if you don't lease it for the season), and one for everyone else. Both are gravel, no trees, no tables. Most of non-tailgater section (where we were) is occupied by people working temporarily in Tuscaloosa and other long-termers. While the tailgater section is angled pull-throughs with more space between units, the other section is tightly packed un-angled pull-throughs with little maneuvering room. The pedestals are shared between spaces, thus you are back-to-back and front-to-front with your neighbours. If you don't like interstate noise this park is good, as it is sufficiently away from I-20. If you don't like train noise, you are out of luck here. There is a very busy track so close you think they're coming through the park. Don't expect any aesthetic satisfaction. The place is hot, dusty and without any pleasant views whatsoever. There are no discounts during football season, even when the team is playing away, and even in the non-tail-gater section. Also there is a $5 "service" charge. On the positive side, the manager was nice, the utilities worked well, and all the RVs and vehicles in the place were clean and modern. No junk. None-the-less, I believe I will select another location on my next visit to Tuscaloosa. - Tidy Boy

We decided at the last minute to go to an Alabama football game. As expected, RV sites were impossible to find. Called Sunset RV park and they said they had space at this park, their overflow park. As previous reviews state, it is a gravel parking lot with hook ups. For our purposes, it was fine. In fact, it is only 4 miles down the road to the stadium. It was surprisingly quiet at night. - Traveling Golfer

We were surprised that our 1st choice for a nightly stop was filled. So we grabbed our old campground directory and picked the next available park to the west. The only good news was that their regular park, (Sunset Travel Park) which adjoins, but sits below I-40 was filled. We were directed to the overflow park Avalon RV Park. It is just a gravel parking lot with working W/S/E. No obvious trash receptacles, so I walked our bag to the nearby sister campground which had a trash bin. The nearby train added to the low rating. We'll add this to our any port in the storm list. - BobatRetama

Bare bones: new gravel parking lot with utility posts. Lots of long term residents/workers. Adequate for an over night, but close enough to a city to have the noises, sirens, motorcycles, etc. No interstate noise, but there's a late night car wash and light industrial. Don't go on the week-end. The bar across the street faces the park and notorious for noise, etc. So says the manager. Passport America rates. You have to stop into Sunset RV park (practically underneath I-20) to pay and get a map. - mrfixer
