9 Parks near Lanett, Alabama
Jun 2016 - $42.00
We stayed here in our 31' Class C RV. We were on our way to North Carolina and were very disappointed in the choices of parks along I-85 going into Atlanta. (Actually if you want a chuckle from some creatively written reviews, check those out. (Look for the parks along I-85 West out of Atlanta.)
In any case, we stopped here because we didn't want to go into Atlanta to find a decent place to stay. WOW - it was incredible!!! It was our first COE (Corps of Engineers park) and we are now hooked.
The spaces were widely spread apart and you felt like you practically had the entire place to yourself. We stayed in space #29 and it was superb. It had an elevated view of the calm and lovely lake with a path going down to a tiny beach on the water. It would be great for a dog that wanted to swim in the water.
The site was heavily shaded and flat. There were a fire pit, grill, full size picnic table, and lamp pole. The people working at the entrance were so friendly. They were working on a 4-5 month contract, 4 days on, 4 days off, and had their camper on site.
The bathroom was right across the road. It was old but very clean. The only reason I'm giving this park a 9 and not a full 10 is that there was no shower in the bathroom. There were showers closer to the entrance, but were too far to easily walk to.
What started out as just a convenient stop along the way, is now a future vacation destination for our family.
FYI, on the way out, talked to the hosts. They said there were some sites with even better views. Can't remember the numbers, but they must be incredibly awesome because our site (#29) was amazing. - GearDown

Another great COE park, very easy to get to off Interstate 85. Big rigs should have no issues, might be a few sites that would be slightly difficult to get in but not many. Roads are big rig friendly, most sites are paved, sites in the first loop are all gravel but nice. Our Verizon was not the greatest in the first loop, our neighbors ATT was fine, our Verizon seemed to be fine in the other loops. Dish will for the most part be OK if yours is portable, over air TV is limited, about 10 channels. Water and 50 AMP at all sites, water pressure was great, showers are very limited. Very nice lake, great boating, beach is a short drive. Our price reflects senior discount. We would camp here again. - rmckee

Rate is for $12 for one night with Golden Age Passport. But recreation.gov website requires 2 nights for a reservation, so effective discounted rate for a one-night transit stop was $24. Annoying, but still a very good buy compared to many of the alternatives.
Interior roads were wide and well maintained as were the sites that we observed. Our site (#50) as easy to negotiate drive-thru with 50-amp and water service, both easy to access. AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE service ran about 5 mhz down/.1 mhz up. Sent several texts with pictures attached with no problem. Service stations and shops in West Point, about 5 miles from this quiet campground. - KodiakHouse

This is another magnificent COE park. Some people seem to have a hard time locating it because it straddles the state line of AL/GA. This caused some low usage at times and the Corps has decided to only open it for three days per week in the 2015 season. This is the only drawback to an otherwise great place to get away. - tommyg

This is an excellent COE campground. The rate quoted was with Golden Age Passport. The restrooms with shower were spotless and were cleaned twice a day. The sites were very wide and accommodated my RV (35 foot) without any problems. The only drawback is that there is not any stores within 7 miles of the campground, so be sure you have everything you need. - Phillip D

This is an excellent COE park. Sites are more spacious than most and spaced out very well. The gravel pads at Whitetail Ridge are contiguous to the parking pad, unlike most of the sites at Holiday COE up the road; I like that layout better. There really aren't any "bad" sites, and if you want a good water site there are plenty to pick from. The tree canopy is fairly thick, so satellite reception will probably require a portable dish to find a hole. I rated this park a "9". The only reasons I didn't give it a 10 is lack of full hook ups and a convenience issue in the bathrooms: in the shower area, there are no hooks, stools or benches to put your clothes. The dump station is one lane, so on leaving at a peak time, you may have a short wait. SWe saw lots of fish being caught on the river: crape, bass and catfish. Verizon coverage 5/5, local TV reception is good, shopping, fuel and restaurants are 5 miles away toward La Grange. We will be back here. - Bama Camper

This is a very well kept park. There is large trees everywhere. It was difficult to get a satellite signal. Water/electric sites. Lots of really long sites. Easy to get into. Lots of deer in the park. Would stay here again. Nice level sites. - jacknpeg

This is a very nice Corps of Engineers park on West Point lake. The sites are well spaced and offer lots of privacy. Water and electrical hookups were fine and I did not experience any problems with either. The front office personnel were very hospitable and helpful. They do a great job. The only objection to the park is that its about 12 miles or so from the nearest city. Other than that, its a wonderful park and we will be coming back. - willief47

We stayed here 20 years ago when, as we remember, the campground we more open. My, how much the trees have grown! We could not get satellite reception. But, this is a great campground for fishing (on-shore or boats) and other water sports. The campground has several parking areas for boat trailers. A very quiet campground and we will come again. - gatordan

We only overnighted here but we will definitely return. While this campground is well outside of the city of LaGrange, it is a beautiful facility along the shores of West Point Lake. Sites are large and private with paved pads, easy back in, and a woodsy lakeside setting. Everything is very well tended and clean. - khorne

We camp in a popup and we like to see clean updated restroom and showers. Holiday COE at best has dated restrooms and showers. We have never been to a campground much less a COE where there are seperate shower buildings that are not close to each loop. I would think that this campground needs an overhaul of the entire facilities. This was our first stay on West Point and probably will not be back. The scenery was fantastic especially at sundown and the camping was peaceful. - AU Fishing

I was supposed to stay for two nights only lasted one. The campground is littered in trash. The campfire ring had old clothes, bottles, and trash in it along with the two sites next to me. The bathrooms were never cleaned and were the worst that I have seen since camping. Shower curtain was covered in mold, and the floors had not been swept or moped in a long time. The road is gravel with pot holes and washed out places. The back of the sites had beer cans and bottles all in the woods. The majority of the sites were unlevel. I would highly recommend staying away from this place. They had no pride in the campground at all. - smedic29

Owner is very nice. Yes, there are trains during the night, but we love trains. We will return. We had a site on the small lake (pond) that faces the water from the patio area, and no other RV's, though you must be a Class C or A to get into it because you have to back out. There is also a Roller Rink($), 2 300' water slides($), and batting cages($) on site. Mostly under trees, the sites are plenty shady. A few are small but mostly they are decent sized, and fairly level. (We didn't have to use any blocks at all) Typical Georgia clay roads that are in good shape other than the entry. Their flyer does not say how many sites are here. The owner is working hard on the park, and took the time to use the tractor on our site to make sure it was plenty level, and spread hay over the clay areas, once we made our reservation. - TaylorShopping

Gravel sites with red clay on top. Hookups worked great. Very friendly owner who escorted us to our site. Checks or cash only no discounts. No Wifi or cable but was able to get satellite. Only stopped for overnight not sure if we would stop again. - roaming around

Where is the Lake? One unisex bathroom/shower - that's it. Next to noisy Rt. 280. No swimming pool. Not a Good Sam Park anymore. Should be priced in the $20-25 range. No site/facilities map. No Wi-Fi. No cable - told we would get a few air channel stations (no CBS or PBS). No credit cards. - Livermorered
Aug 2014 - $35.00
Narrow gravel entrance roads. Gravel sites with full hookups. Nice shade trees. No cable. Very marginal Wi-Fi. Good 50 amp. Very friendly host with site escort. Rate is high for what you get. OK for an overnight stay if you need to get off the road. The park seems to be full of long term residents and needs some work. I had to pull grass out of the water valve box in the ground to get my fresh water hose hooked up. - Pjoe

This is a nice little out of the way, quiet park for an overnight or few day stay. There are hiking trails and a playground for the kids and even an old haunted house on the property.
The restrooms and showers are dated but clean and functional. The caretaker of the park is very friendly and helpful. A lot of the sites are pull-through and easy to access even for big rigs. Nice place to rest up when traveling through this area. - digger2280

Very nice well kept park. Good gravel roads and cement pads. Small, quiet and remote CG, 8 miles off the Hwy. We had a 50 amp power problem, one line went above the 132v max for our Electrical Management System causing intermittent power shut downs for our RV. At night I turned the pedestal power off. The rooftop sat dish worked fine, no trees in the campsite area. Our Sprint cell phones and hot spot did not work, no signal. - big greg

This is a new park. Due to road repairs in the area, you had to go the long way around to get to the park. There is lots of space between the paved/raised sites. We were here as the only residents and appreciated the freedom to run the dog. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. This park has a leash regulation: use one on your dog at all times. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks! - zen_letitbe

Hard to say whether this place is friendly. We never saw a soul. Just signs telling us where to drop our money. We called the phone number posted, but the woman who answered was nowhere near this place and knew nothing. So we deducted the Good Sam discount since they advertise on their own sign and in Trailer Life as a Good Sam park and dropped the resulting $20 in the box. There's no reason to ever come back. If the trains persist, there will be a good reason to stay away. The rumble actually shakes the motorhome slightly, and the whistle is louder than we like to have the television volume. I agree that the banners with the Bible verses are over the top considering the contrast between what they imply and the complete indifference these people seem to have to the people from whom they want to take money. It won't be us again! - woodman

Hoofer's is the most non-hospitable RV campground we have encountered in 30 years of road travel. We phoned ahead to make sure the place was open for business. The phone was answered, "Gospel Barn." I asked if this was the correct number for the RV park and was told yes. The person on the phone volunteered no information, and sounded as though she was annoyed at having been interrupted. It was easy enough to find the place, but there was absolutely nobody around to greet us, do registration, whatever. At the gate, we found a stack of registration forms that had been left out in the weather, with instructions to fill one out and put it in an ordinary tin mailbox, along with our payment. Never mind that we prefer to use credit cards, and we certainly were not going to leave a check under the circumstances. The sites, such as they are, are laid out in rows in a big open area. Since the roads were gravel, becoming overgrown, there was no way to know if any of them were pull-throughs. Because we were tired, we made camp in spite of our misgivings. We watched half a dozen others come in the gate and go through the same confusing process we did. A few truckloads of workers showed up, but it appeared they were a painting crew, just using one of the sheds on the place for storage. I have never spent the night on a Wal-mart parking lot, but I am certain I'd get a better welcome there. Bible verses posted here and there on banners were actually offensive in the context of this we-don't-give-a-damn management. I suppose you could call it salvation by post-It notes, but the place showed no evidence of anyone caring about anything other than the money they expected to collect on the occasion of their gospel or bluegrass concerts. I will drive out of my way to avoid this place in the future. - Stan47

Agree with other comments. WIfi was fast and strong, but the park was empty. Antenna connection was MUCH better than cable. - Homecrew

This was our 3rd year camping here, it is a nice park but it is pricey if your campsite is in the Azalea Pool-n-Play, we bring our grand children so it is nice that the playground is right across from the motorhome. We were in site 203 it was pretty level not as level as 202. Since our grand children love this park we will be back next year. We did not do any shopping or site seeing this trip. - thejones357

This is a return visit for us at Pine Mountain. We love the layout where every site feels private despite the fact that most of the park is open with only a scattering of younger trees. Long concrete pads. Internal roads both paved and crushed stone. Park in immaculate condition. Staff friendly and welcoming. With friends in the area, we'll be back in the future. - dandd
