24 Parks near Mobile, Alabama
Jul 2008 - $25.00
Without going into great detail, allow me to merely state that were were treated rudely by the owner/management. The available amenities are in poor repair, the landscaping had been let go badly and the grass was un-mowed. We were infested by sugar ants throughout our stay. This is more of a long-term stay park with lots of mobile homes interspersed among the RVs. The park sites are not level as the park is located on a slope. The office doesn't keep an regular hours. Next time we'd rather drive an extra hour out of our way to avoid this miserable park. Why it is rated by Trailer Life I can't imagine. - oRV

Although close to Mobile, this is not a campground. It is a full time trailer park with 8 sites for transients. The park is for sale and the owner/manager does not seem interested in renting out overnight spots. In fact, he was downright rude. No restrooms, no facilities and a very narrow road make this a poor choice for an overnight stay in Mobile. We will not return. - lmg

We were here only 1 night but it was comfortable and nice. - fdr

While this is a "no frills" kind of campground, we enjoyed our month stay. While the majority of campers here are permanent, it was like it's own little community and everyone welcomed you with a wave. Marlene and Jimmy, the park managers were welcoming, helpful and just really nice folks. There are 3 washers and 3 dryers, a bit expensive at 1.75 each but they were good sized. We used the showers once (last day of stay), they were functional with good pressure and hot water, but while clean, they could definitely use some updating. Great little park for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks. - Outlaw Pilots

I'm not sure why this park has not received any reviews since 2013, but it is still here and has spots available for daily, weekly, or monthly. We pulled in for two nights and stayed for two weeks. Make sure to ask about weekly rates as they do not advertise them over daily rate. This park is dated, make sure to wear your flipflops to the shower (as we are self-contained, we did not use the showers but we did walk in for a look). There is laundry on-site, we did not use it, but the machines looked to be in okay condition. The wifi was amazing! Our connection was never slow or interrupted. The only thing about this park that I will stress is that it is located in a neighborhood. I would highly recommend that big-rigs take Howell's Ferry Rd and making your turn onto Dover, this will allow you to avoid the low hanging trees through-out the rest of the neighborhood. - FueledbyFreedom

Manager was friendly and helpful at check-in. They only take checks and cash, no plastic. I just stayed overnight, so didn't check out the full park. Wi-Fi was reliable and moderate speed (I was two spots away from main office). Many of the spaces appeared to be longer-term residents, but the grounds were well-kept and virtually spotless. A convenient, quiet, nice little place for an overnight stop. - FrankTX

Without a doubt the most wonderful place we have stayed. The campground was fully decorated for Halloween and the train took us through an incredible haunted barn. This is a really special place close to many wonderful attractions. Very clean, very family friendly. They also do a Christmas and Easter display. We highly recommend it! - Ann Saxon

I wouldn't stay there again! If you want to leave you'll not get a refund. We booked a site then checked it out and found out there are plenty of old trailers where they wanted to put us. Just dirt in the site with very little grass, red ants, and garbage so we left and asked for a refund. They will not give any money back, just a credit!Now if you didn't want to stay why would you want a credit? And bad manager! STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - R Kapela

Generally run down with many permanent residents. We were parked in one of the pull throughs at the front of the park. Tried to dump tanks but had to stop as they were having major problems with the septic system for this area of the park. Don't care to expand on that subject any more than I have to. Lots of noise during the day with traffic coming and going and sirens passing by on the street. Not a park I would recommend staying at. - DennisD
Nov 2012 - $25.00
Staff friendly and helpful. Many large trees. Mostly permanent residents. About a dozen pull through spots up front for pass-through rigs. Gravel pads but all slope up-hill a bit; requiring raising the back end (which I don't like to do on jacks) Wifi is fine. Cable fairly good on local channels but not most cable channels despite their extensive list. 30 amp voltage on the high side, approaching 128-130 volts. - 26Isata

Not much for what I would call fancy, BUT it was a decent place to hook up and feel fairly safe for the night. Did use laundry room and it was OK. The place seems to need to be kept after, and maintenance brought up, but it was quiet enough and worked out for us. Sewer outlet near rear of space so bring extra sewer hose and only one outlet on each site. Looked to be many long term campers here. It was right off I-10 close to the exit so it is easy to find. - JohnNLinda

Great place for an overnight stop. It was clean, quiet, friendly staff, and level. Would stay here again. - junmy3
Mar 2016 - $22.00
Very nice, quiet, friendly no-frills campground. Owners very nice and grounds were clean and freshly mowed. Did not give a 10 only because the sites and roads were not paved. About 7 miles from Bellingrath Gardens and not too far off interstate. Perfect lay-over for travelers, as several campers here were. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.
Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. Site surface was grass and features a picnic table. - Countrygal1

Park is nice with large, level grass sites and a small pond. Owners are very nice. Full hook-ups. Pull-throughs and back-ins. Quiet. Our biggest issue was NO wifi and no cable - both of which are advertised as existing. We left after one night because we were looking for a place with wifi. If that had been working, we would have stayed longer. - DrM Traveler

It was difficult navigating the narrow, tree-lined roads in our 42' motor home towing our car. If there were a better choice in the neighborhood we would stop there, but this is it for that area.
It is fairly easy to reach from I-65.
Noise was not a problem. - Pamela R.

We used this as an overnight stop and, as such, it worked OK, but I'd never stay longer than overnight. This park is mostly permanents with tight, cramped spaces. The trees need major trimming. The lady in the office was very pleasant and helpful, however. Nothing at all special. We will probably not return. - Gypsy Turtles
Jul 2010 - $29.00
Overnight stay. Arrived 4pm, and escorted to our site quickly. Used Good Sam discount. Site was very level. A kids party was going on upon arrival but they stopped as quiet hours started. Park is full of a lot of permanent residents. Most of them are very well kept. All were friendly. We could barely hear the traffic from our RV but walking the dogs you can definitely hear it. Nice large trees and birds abound. Enjoyed the stay. - SiteCR2
Apr 2016 - $20.00
We arrived late and could barely understand the speech of the park kiosk attendant and the instructions on how to find our site (he was out of maps) so we got on the wrong road and had an ordeal turning our 43' bus around. Went back to the kiosk and no one was there. Some helpful campers gave us directions to find the campground and then we were shocked to see how narrow the pull-through actually was. We made it by backing in and managed to get hooked up. Since it was only overnight, we did not see anything more of the campground or the surrounding area except for some questionable characters around us. Wish we had stayed in the Walmart parking lot. I would not recommend this to anyone except as a last resort. - coloradoflyfisher

Of all the parks we stayed at on our 5 month trip through the south this is one of only two where I would probably not return.
The park was a typical county run park. a little run down and need of a little clean up but overall not bad.
Unfortunately it is in a really run down part of town. Venturing to and from after dark seemed like a really bad idea. The roads in and out were not in very good shape. - digger2280
Jan 2014 - $22.00
Stayed here for one night only. Was good for the price. Very woody, sites not real close to others. Getting to the park was kind of through a residential area, but not too bad. Going out was through a more iffy part of town so I was glad it was morning and not midnight. Would probably stay again if needed overnight. - lpoebowen

Sites are all spacious with some shade, but are grass with some dirt so can get pretty messy in heavy rain. Roads are very wide, access to the sites is easy. All are backin. Part of park is only 30 amp.
The park is a mix of houses, longterm leased lots and rv sites. The facilities and the park are spotless. There are activites going on every day at the clubhouse and visitors are encouraged to join in. Be sure to go to happy hour.
Very large fields adjacent to the developed area makes ideal dog walking but folks are a little casual about cleaning up.
No WIFI or cable, but AT&T data worked fine and OTA reception was good. We look forward to returning for a longer visit. - bobcovey

The rate reflects a weekly stay. Rainbow Plantation is an Escapees park. As such you must be an Escapees member to stay here. The sites are spacious and easy to back into. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The area was nice. The laundry facilities were clean, inexpensive, and worked well. There were many permanent residents and long-term guests, but they kept their sites neat. Community meals were held several times per week, as well as other activities. There was a DVD lending library. We were in the minority being below the retirement age. Most guests were diligent about cleaning up after their dogs, but not all were. - Lori and Larry
Dec 2015 - $12.00
The rate reflects the SKP member monthly rate, plus electric. This is the first park we have ever rated a 10. This was our first time to this park and we have already booked for next year. Everyone in this park was so welcoming and there are many, many activities/dinners planned. We felt like family as soon as we arrived. The sites are very spacious and level. The sites are grassy and there were lots of ants around, but I believe this is normal for this area. Good open spaces for satellite reception. Utilities worked very well. Did not use the Tengo WIFI as we have our own. The only thing we could think would be an improvement would be the sites being paved as we were constantly tracking into the camper. - jacknpeg

We've traveled from Phoenix, AZ for the past 8 days and this was the most expensive campground. It also had the best view and nice tall pines, so it was worth the few extra dollars. No internet, but level site pads for pull-throughs. Full hook-ups made it easy to set up. Would recommend. - Caro
Jan 2016 - $32.00
Rate reflects 15% senior discount given except Sat. Full hookups, free wifi. Easy on and off I-10. Some noise from Mobile Bay Causeway truck traffic, yet mostly quiet. Site #6 offered clear view for satellite signal. No sugar ants this stay because it was so cold. Fishing pier. Good birding. Security gate currently not working. Standup grills. - SunStar203
Jan 2016 - $38.00
Rainy weekend but site drained well with no standing water. Wifi was weak, but Verizon 4G was four bars so hotspot worked well. Staff was friendly and inviting. Bathroom was clean when we arrived. No fire rings, but a grill was mounted in each site. Picnic tables well built and functional. Sits right on the bay with no highway noise from I-10. HD TV received many channels by air; no cable TV available. - ArmyColonel
Jan 2016 - $42.00
The sewer hook up was not standard. The entry pipe was too small for standard connections so we were unable to use sewer. I assume if we'd ask they had some sort of adapter but we discovered it in the morning when we were getting ready to leave and didn't feel like dealing with it. There was no picnic table. In backing in we discovered that there was a change in the angle of the pad so that when we unhooked, the truck was angled downward to the trailer. - sp123

Nice park with level concrete pads. Good hook-ups with convenient location. ATT signal for cell good & good Wi-Fi signal. Location is close to Fairhope & 30 minutes from Gulf. Will definitely stay here again. - Smooth Running

The park is very clean and the bathrooms are the nicest I have seen. Great place to stay while visiting Fairhope and Mobile. The staff was very nice and helped us with our dog problem. We were so thankful for her assistance. Would stay here again and so should you. - mga60tw
