As is in most COEs, our stay was very nice. I pity the poor gate workers trying to work a new computer system without much help. Did you know you can't stay at a COE if you don't have an E-mail address? We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

There are 2 loops at this park. The older, Antioch, loop has water & electric only with gravel pads and a dump station. The newer, Catoma, Loop has large concrete pads with full hookups and 50 amp service. This is a great value especially if you have the National Park Golden Age card. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a lot of civil rights history to be seen in the area, in Montgomery and Selma. They have a great visitors center in downtown Montgomery which is a good place to plan and start your visit.

We stayed in the newer section of the park which is one of the best developed COE campgrounds we have visited. The campground is well planned with large, well separated sites and full hook ups. There was a good variety of sites to meet most csmoer's needs. While it is a 15 minute drive off major roads through Montgomery it works well as a one night stop while traveling through. We plan to return to visit Civil Rights Historical sites. Recommend you reserve sites well in advance at this popular park. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here 2 nights while escaping from Hurricane Michael in October. We didn't have reservations so we ended up I the Antioch Loop which has gravel pad. Most sites looked "fairly" level and in dense forest so there would be little or no satellite reception. We were in site #141 and it was level and at least 100 ft deep and 25 ft wide. October is their busiest month due to a huge park wide Halloween Festival where everyone decorates their site and the kids all go trick or treating through the park. If I were to return to this park I would get a reservation in the Catoma Loop. It has concrete pads and open spaces and not under all the trees. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

The city of Prattville is on the other side of the lake but close enough for fuel, restaurants, grocery and entertainment. Montgomery is close also. Perfect for Montgomery biscuits baseball!

Large, paved and level sites in Catoma loop. Fairly close to the lake with full hook ups although the lake is not visible for the trees. No issues with popping breakers when running all electrical options. 3 a/c units. No satellite available from this site with our motorhome. A wonderful place except for the need for better upkeep. The grass needed mowing badly, very tall grass. Uncomfortable to walk on tall. The nearby restroom was clean, had plenty of toilet paper but no hand soap. There was a dispenser that was empty. How hard is it to fill the hand soap when adding the toilet paper? Overall, a great place to stay but could be much better with a little maintenance. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

Catoma Loop in Gunter Hill COE Park is as good as it gets if you like large wooded sites, peace, quiet and full hookups. All interior roads are paved and the sites pads are concrete. Each site has a large gravel patio with a fire pit, lantern post with a shelf, BBQ grill and large table. There is no cable and satellite reception would be available only at a handful of sites. Over the air TV reception was very good, however. I had 2-3 bars of Verizon service.

Many sites have a view of the creeks that surround the campground. The large bath house is very nice and has a laundry. While you are deep in the woods of Catoma, Al., Prattville with all the shopping and restaurants you could want is less than 15 minutes away as is downtown Montgomery. My only negative comment is the grass was in need of cutting. It was high when we arrived Monday and had not been cut when left Friday morning. The Antioch loop is a different story. The roads are ruff and tight. The sites aren't much better either. I would not describe Antioch as poor but doesn't approach the Catoma Loop. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the Catoma loop which was great. The sites were wide, level and easy to back into. There was a good distance between sites and a lot of visual separation as well. The Catoma loop is the best laid out campground we have seen. The Antioch loop was a different story. The road was narrow, tight turns and very full of pot holes. It would not be a good choice for a big rig. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely place. Lots of tall shade trees, had a site (#101) near the river. We actually got a satellite signal here. Main road paved, old but no problems to drive on. Gravel sites look level, there is a playground and basketball court, plus a nice small park with a covered dining area. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

Great Corp of Engineers campground. Sites are large, level, long, concrete pads. Well separated, mostly shaded, some with views of the water. We were very fortunate to be there when the local Dulcimer group was hosting a get together. They practiced each afternoon and it provided great entertainment at no charge.

Antioch loop is old and W/E only, restroom/showers are dated but clean, the laundry room was missing the washer, the dryer was broken (Apr). I was not able to level with 10 inch lift, gravel site, old wooden picnic table, grill and fire ring. The park has a large concrete boat ramp and parking area and restroom adjacent to the launch. Verizon 2 bars. OTA TV received major networks. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

An absolutely beautiful campground will full hookups, huge level concrete pads, beautiful trees, picnic table, fire ring, charcoal grill, on a beautiful river... I could go on and on. Only negative is that you are not very close to any restaurants or grocery stores (25 mi. drive). Roads are big and in impeccable shape. Easy to get our big rig around. Friendly neighbors. Cute little playground for the kiddos. I would stay here again and again while in the Montgomery area. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

This campground has never let us down. We've camped here 3 times (only on the Catoma side which is newer w/ full hook ups) and every time the grounds were well taken care of and the campsite upon arrival was perfect. We were in site 48 this time (Feb 22-25,2018). It is next to the playground. We were far enough away to not have kids running near our site but close enough to see our kids playing at the playground from our campsite. We did not use the bath house so I cant comment on that. Biking around the campground is nice. There is one short trail that leads to a closed bridge but other than that you're riding within the campground but that is still pleasant. The dock overlooking the water is a great spot to sit and bird or boat watch. Overall we enjoy coming here. Others have mentioned the paper mill smell. We smelled it one of the days but it wasn't that bad. Very happy with our stay and we'll be back. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time to stay at Gunter Hill. The sites were easy to back in to, level and wide. The park has a very nice playground for the kids. You do need to know that there are 2 playgrounds one is new and very nice the other is older and does not have as much to do. We were also able to catch a few fish from the nearby Catoma Creek. If you go to this park you will need to have a lot of outside lighting, as well as lights on any bike that you take, because there are no street lights. This campground is very dark at night, it is also very quiet. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Gunter Hill and plan to return. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here for an overnight on our way to the Florida panhandle. What a great surprise. This is another excellent COE campground but with sewer as well as electric and water. It is located about 20 minutes west of Montgomery, AL. The rural roads getting here are a little narrow but well maintained and are really no problem navigating. The on duty park attendant at the main gate was very friendly and full of information on the park and nearby areas. After passing through the front gate where you register, the roads are absolutely near perfect right to the campsites. The park itself is on Catoma Creek which is part of the backwaters of the Alabama River. It is very scenic with many large hickory and pine trees acting as shade throughout the park. Our site was very large with good shade and nearby a viewing dock of the creek behind us through the woods. The site was easy to get into and very level. All utilities were where they belong and worked well. In addition to a 90' long paved site, it also had a large nice crushed gravel area for a tent with a good picnic table, fire ring w/ grill and a lantern post. The park has 142 sites and sites 1-75 were recently renovated with concrete pads and I believe, should all include sewer. The park offers nice basketball courts and good playgrounds as well as good hiking and biking options. Showers and a laundry area are also available but we did not use. Overall this is a beautiful park/campground even on a chilly, rainy day when we were here. We would definitely camp here again and recommend to all. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Travel Trailer.

About 25 minutes to the west is the Lowndes Interpretive Center which we visited on a previous trip. This is located approximately midway between Selma, AL and Montgomery which was the route taken by those seeking their civil rights during the 60s. This is an excellent place to learn of their historic march and about the civil rights movement that lead to the Civil Right Act.
