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

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

A diamond in the Rough! Super nice facilities, easy check in, no road noise, some small hiking trails near by not to mention an authentic Haunted House! while we were there they had a group of "Ghost Hunters" there... The camp host is as nice as anyone we have ever met. Will definatley stay there if we ever get another opportunity, we only stayed two nights. They only take cash or checks so be prepared. Don't miss this one! - RET CWO4 USCG

What a pleasant surprise! This is a city park in a very quiet part of town. Located on a lovely plantation/estate with the mansion still in good shape. They were turning it into a haunted house for Halloween.
Level pull thru concrete pads with nice gravel roads. Plenty of space, very easy to navigate. Staff was great, easy check in.
We've been looking for a halfway mark between Pensacola & Atlanta. For the last 4 yrs we stayed at "Lakeside RV" in Opelika. It was almost tolerable for one night but they keep raising the site rent yearly. Happy we found this gem. - Luvs her horses

Stayed here while my mother was in nearby hospital. Excellent service. Great Value! Park is operated by City of Opelika. Park is on the grounds of an antebellum plantation. The house , circa 1850 is within sight of campgrounds. I grew up 25 miles north of this park but did not know anything about it's unique offering to campers. Very popular during football season since it is near Auburn University. - Vintage popup

Stayed here for the sole purpose of attending an event at Auburn University, as such I doubt if we'll ever return. RV section of the park appeared to be nothing but work campers. Tents, tarps and utility trailers were on just about every occupied site. Beer cans & bottle tops strown throughout the grounds. Sites are gravel, most are unlevel and our site looks as someone dumped their tanks on the ground, toilet tissue everywhere. Although it is a locked, gated park after hours at no time did we see a ranger on patrol. - birdbrains

We stayed 3 nights to visit the area.
The park is located near I-85 with easy access along good paved roads. The entrance was a little narrow. The parking area for check in had a significant slope.
The park facilities were built by the CCC. It shows in the building construction and age. The park has several day use areas including extensive BMX bicycle trails throughout the park.
The interior roads are paved but narrow. The sites are crushed gravel, generally level but lined with poles causing them to be narrow. Not many pull through sites. Some pull through sites required climbing a short but steep incline to reach the parking area. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance and vegetation.
There was an extensive tree canopy blocking any satellite reception. Fortunately we were assigned Site 20 which had a good view to the South for satellite. Sites on either side of 20 may provide satellite reception with a portable dish.
Park map claimed there were 3 broadcast channels. Couldn't get any of them.
Our Verizon hotspot reception was good.
No designated pet area but there was sufficient distance along the park roads to walk dogs. Don't remember if there were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. There were garbage cans around to dispose of waste. There were dogs off leash both in the campground areas and the day use areas.
The only dumpster was near the entrance to the first campground loop.
We were invaded by little black ants!
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter but the bathhouses were designated as shelters.
Would not stay here again. - bsb814

Been a while since we stayed at this park. While the sites are gravel, it seems pretty much all of the utilities have been recently upgraded. Running the microwave, two electric heaters, and an electric water heater, the voltage held steady at a great 117V. The sites are pretty level and the park is very quite. Great hiking trails all around the lake and to the dam/waterfall area. Would definitely like to stay here again when in the area. - tundracamper

This is a plain Jane RV park. Sites are close for the most part. The actual address city is Waverly, but it is not an acceptable city for this review for some reason. Sites are gravel. Monthly rate is currently $400. Owner friendly and helpful. There are stables, so you can bring your horse. Walking paths and a lake. It is very quiet. Was also told that the web site of www.rvandstables.com was not correct, but it worked for me. Shopping within two miles or so. - bilmo

Way overpriced! There is nothing here to justify $45/night WITH the discount. Not even a dog walk area. Just take your dogs down the row and let 'em rip on someone else's living space. Not my preferred method. I had one of the 1/2 dozen concrete pull throughs which was not level by any means. The spaces are tight, the gravel interior roads very rough, the garbage cans (no dumpster) were overflowing (I counted 4 for the entire park) and were not emptied during the 2 days I was there. And this is off season. But the people were very nice! That is a plus! I guess if your are an Auburn football fan you might be grateful just to have a place to park and party. But since I am not an Auburn football fan this park fell way, way short. How Good Sam could rate it an 8/10/10 is totally beyond me - and makes me totally suspicious of their review system. Not again. I will try something else if I ever visit Auburn again. I have a 42' and pull a full size pick up. There was enough room to maneuver in the park but it was just enough. - kdlee747

Thought it was expensive for what was there. Without Good Sam Discount, it would be $50/nite! Concrete pad, gravel driveway. WiFi is good. No cable working at the time we were there. No pool, no playground. Nice clubhouse. This park seems more geared toward Auburn football season. Mostly, seasonal people. If full, this park would be very close to your neighbor. The grill is placed to share with your neighbors right next to the sewage hookup!
No fire ring, picnic tables sparsely situated around the grounds. - Sunne

All utilities, Wi-Fi, cable are excellent. Some pads are cement, others are gravel. All look quite level. Reasonable grass. Some friendly, but loose dogs that seem to be permanent residents. Check web site for various rates and services. Call ahead and get site number and provide credit card. Owner isn't always on property; he has a phone number to call. About 10 minutes off the freeway. Would stay here again. - 26Isata

Spent two nights at University Station during graduation. This is a very large park with well kept parking spots. Some RV parking locations had a slight slope down hill to a level parking spot. Our spot was 80' long.
Pros: very nicely maintained park, good water pressure and electrical service, all utilities were correctly located on the lot. Very nice shade trees, grass manicured, packed gravel lot.
Cons: No signage providing directions to the office. Directly across the street from the train tracks. Once past the office, the road becomes gravel. There had been some heavy rain earlier in the week and water had eroded the road resulting in some small ditches carved in the road.
Overall, a very nice park and we'll be back again. - Maddog11

Long, level back-in site with full hookups (50 amp). Rate paid was cash to avoid a surcharge for credit cards. Blazing AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE speeds, major networks digital OTA (abc, cbs, fox, nbc, pbs plus cats & dogs). Park is used primarily for Auburn Tigers tailgating in the fall, bluegrass festivals in the summer. Nearly deserted in march but fully operational. Convenience store with gas pumps and breakfast/lunch menu on site. Try for site at back of park to get away from train whistle noise. Convenient to I-85. - KodiakHouse

Level gravel site, good power and water. No cable. We were at the top of the hill. It had rained buckets for a few days before. The area was very wet. Out site was fine but many would have been a problem. A special event was going on at the University so the park had buses running into town. Friendly staff. - CC Happy Camper

very nice park, owners on site even after hours, great place we have stayed here twice both times were great. - fosterjoel

Overnighted here going from NC to Mobile AL. Would do so again. Navigating was a little tight but manageable. Sites were nice and many grass patches for dog walking.
It advertized WiFi but their WiFi app never gave a place to enter the access code.
Site was not really level side to side so if staying longer prepare to adjust for levelling.
The host was friendly, accommodating and lovely. - Uphill

We stayed one night here on our cross country road trip arriving at 11AM and the owner was so nice and let us check in early. We were able to have to whole day to go out and explore Auburn. We went to the Chewacla state park across the way for an awesome hiker the next morning before hitting the road again! If this place is booked up you can also look into camping at the state park as the sites looked huge and easy to get to. The cable here kind of stinks, the FOX/CBS/ABC and NBC do not work at all. Must be split too much. We really enjoyed our stay here. We felt safe and loved the location. Highly recommended! - Howls_Castle

Our campsite was nice and level, when the lake is full this will be a lake site. Verizon hot spot worked well as did our phones, we were able to pick up around 8 channels for the TV with our antenna. Bathrooms were clean, very small and no showers. The Fall colors were beautiful, we enjoyed riding our bikes thru the campground. It is a good weekend stay. - thejones357

This vast COE campground/park system lies along the southeast side of West Point Lake in a mixed deciduous forest. The lake's dam is in the park. Located about 5 to 6 miles off of I-85 from the Lanett, Alabama or West Point, Georgia exits. Follow US 29 north out of West Point towards LaGrange. The campground is simply first class. Although there are road signs on US 29 marking the turn into the park, the large entrance sign is on granite and is difficult to read, especially at night. Inside the campground, directions to numbered campsites are well marked. About 80% of the campsites are waterfront with panoramic views of the lake or its coves, mix of shade and sun. Most have a downhill asphalt driveway that slopes onto a level concrete pad. If a site had a level driveway, it was entirely fine gravel. We saw some evidence of bumper and hitch gouging on the concrete pad at some sites. Especially acute was Site #34. There are some pull-through sites, and many double sites. Some sites had wooden decks. There are additional parking slips for extra vehicles or boat trailers, and on-road marked parking. Picnic tables with fine gravel sitting/campfire living areas are spacious. The distances between campsites vary from fairly close to downright isolation. Some sites have 50 amp service, majority seemed to have 30 amp only. Electric and water worked fine. Quiet and dark at night. Train horns can be heard in the far distance night and day. Dual direction dump station near gatehouse, no sewer at sites. Restrooms were quite clean, small, and had no showers in our loop. Fantastic roadways for walking, jogging, and bicycling. Dog poo was an issue on roadsides. In addition to the paved roads, there are 7 miles of off-road bicycling trails. There was a playground with a swing set and slide, and one tennis court. OTA DTV was limited to PBS and Cozi. Sprint phone was 3 bar and LTE. A few raccoons at night. We'd stay here again. - The Happy Traveler

Beautiful park and lake. Many spots right on water Also, some 50A spots. - scooterrooter

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
