We stayed in Catoma Loop section of the park. The sites were cement, level, spacious, and clean. All sites had at least some shade and degree of privacy. This is one of THE cleanest campground that we have ever stayed at. The park was very quiet the weekend that we stayed. We were able to pick up a lot of OTA channels on TV. Verizon phone service was very good. Internet reception varied from 3G to LTE and was slow at times; there is no WiFi. We left on a Monday and there was someone thoroughly pressure washing the picnic tables. A work camper was cleaning each empty site--fire pits, grills, and picking up all debris at the site. The only con is the Montgomery County road going to the campground has several low hanging trees that need to be trimmed. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the Catoma Creek campground, very nice, new campground. Since we are not self-contained, showers and bathrooms are an important criteria. These were individual (private), very clean facilities. The sites are incredibly long, with plenty of space between sites. When we pulled up to the lady standing at the check-in building, she turned around, went in the building and shut the door. Not the friendliness expected in the south. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Tent Trailer.

Gunter Hill Campground, near Montgomery, AL, is in a beautiful setting with really nice, paved and large sites. Some of the sites are the longest we have seen. May of them offer nice lake views. The only negatives are a poor Verizon signal, a neighboring race track that can be noisy at times, and getting a satellite signal from some sites is impossible. The positives far out weigh the negatives. This is a popular campground and reservations, especially on weekends, is a good idea. You want the Catoma loop if possible - it is newer and has full hookups. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice and clean campground. The sites were spacious, plenty of trees gave shade and privacy, all hookups worked perfectly, and plenty of trails left opportunities for nature hikes. As a full time RVer, my only complaint was the lack of access to the internet. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunter Hill has two loops: Catoma and Antioch. Catoma is the newest and nicest! Most sites in this loop are level, large concrete or paved surfaces, and large enough to handle any size RV. There was plenty room between sites. Antioch loop is older, gravel sites, close to other sites, and many appeared unlevel. This loop does not provide sewer hookups. Our site was clean, even the fire pit! It was wide and long enough to handle both our TV and TT, with plenty of room to spare. We were away from the any of the playgrounds or buildings, so it was quiet and peaceful. Would stay hear again any time in the future; hopefully, longer next time. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is our first stay in a COE park and the best part was the price of $18 with our Federal Park pass. We were in the old part without sewer, the new loop has sewer at each site. The camp host were very nice about allowing us to choose a site based on the levelness of it. It was similar to a state park in that it is close to nature with lots of trees and a lake. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

We chose this park as a base to tour the historic sites in Montgomery. It's about a 10 mi drive to the downtown area. We stayed on the Antioch Loop which is the older of the 2 loops. There are no sewer hookups and no pull-thru's on this loop, But it is a nice camping area. We had a back-in site overlooking the water. The sites are nice and long and well-spaced. They have a nice fire pit, BBQ, picnic table and lantern hook. We drove through the newer Catoma Loop, much nicer. Nice concrete pads, full hookups and some pull-throughs. We would stay here again, but we'd try to book early enough to get on the Catoma loop We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to tour the historic sites in Montgomery, you can drive down to the Convention & Visitors Bureau, which is an old railroad station. They have a free 30 min movie. They also have several free parking spots, and they'll give you a free parking pass for one of the 6 on-street parking spots right in front of the Capitol building. From there it's an easy walk to most of the sites.

Real nice stop on way to Florida from Michigan. Stayed two nights. Short drive to Montgomery, very historical Park was typical ACOE with large clean paved and level sites. Unusual for ACOE our whole section had full hookups. Camp staff friendly. Only negative-dryer wasn't working. Discovered after I deposited my money of course. Had to hang my wet load of clothes all over my camp site to dry. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

I wish it had some trails, but the park is outstanding! Best roads/RV pads I've ever been too - level, flat, grounds kept up well and on a beautiful lake. We would definitely come again - thank you! We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is a fantastic COE campground on the backwaters of the Alabama River, just outside of Montgomery, Alabama. The sites are huge, many are over 100' long, and they are all nice new concrete. The roads are fresh asphalt in excellent condition. There is a boat ramp, and many sites are waterfront, offering the ability to tie your boat up next to your campsite. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Full hook ups, so 50A, Water & Sewer at every site (on the Catoma Loop anyhow). Catoma is the nicest, newest campground, Antioch was closed for the winter during my visit. There are clean bathrooms/shower houses. Lots of places to bank fish. There is quite a bit of shade, so satellite reception might be a problem, however the close proximity to Montgomery yields a large selection of OTA channels. Reserve a waterfront site ahead of time for great view of river backwater areas.

Nothing missing at this fantastic, spacious campground, highly recommended.

This campground got my first 10/10 rating on rvparkreviews.com! We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

White House of the Confederacy historic site in nearby Montgomery. Oval Asphalt Race Track next door for racing fans. Nightlife nearby at "The Alley" entertainment district in Montgomery. No grocery stores nearby, so bring everything you need. There is a Dollar General nearby.

Excellent birding, with many large graceful water loving species.

We have stayed in several COE parks around the country and have been very pleased. This campground is excellent. There are two sections, Catoma Creek and Antioch Branch. We stayed in Catoma Creek section, which is newer. Easy access into the park and large sites offer a patio, picnic table, grill and fire ring. The site accommodated our fifth wheel and truck with lots of room to spare. The host who checked us in was very nice and helpful. There's a well-stocked Dollar General just up the road.

We will definitely stay here again. Rate reflects our America the Beautiful Pass. We recommend the newer section, Catoma Creek. Antioch Branch is better suited to smaller RV's or tent camping. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

When you check in to the park, ask for a site in the newer section. This park is absolutely beautiful & well maintained. It is equipped with full hook-ups (even sewer) & all of the pads are wide cement & very level. Utilities are good. If you have satellite tv, tell the host that & she can probably put you in a site that has clear shot. We parked in site #50 & had clear shot of satellite. Access road is smooth asphalt. Price was with my gov't issued senior pass. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When you turn off of main hwy. to the two lane county road, you may feel a bit apprehensive about whether or not you are on the right road, but stay on it & it will take you to an intersection, where you continue straight for about half mile & you'll see the sign for the park on your left. The park is kinda off in the boonies, but once you see it, its well worth the drive...very quiet & safe. Would stay here again in a heartbeat
