Quiet campground at a marina on the Tennessee River. Sites are moderately level, large enough. Some long-term residents. All were friendly. Staff was helpful. Dump station is a pump intended for boats. Fitting was wrong for RV so ended up spilling some and carrying the rest to the next campground. - William Custer

Not a bad place to stay if you want to fish and boat. The main draw back, no sewer sites and it's under a canopy of trees. - TheTideRide

The campground provides quiet surroundings. The general area is prone to flooding in heavy rain periods that can impacts some of the walking trails. Nearby boat launch available. Stores and restaurants within a few minutes drive. - LQQKing2B

Stayed 6 weeks. Campground unkept. Grass mowing is almost nil....contracted out and only half assed mowed every 3 weeks. No edging. No weeding. No spraying for ants. Driveways all need additional gravel to level, to fill in chuckholes, etc. RV host totally useless. Water pressure extremely low. Only plus are the cement pads. - Sassygirl

I've stayed here multiple times over the last decade and have never seen this park so full of RVs. Perhaps it was the Memorial Day weekend, but I'm not certain. As other posters note, the level concrete sites have full hook-ups. No need to check in if you have a reservation; just note your name on the site sign post, pull into your site and hookup. The wifi password is posted on a wall in the very clean laundry house. The wifi signal was strong. On arrival at the Arsenal if entering Gate 9, no need to go to the Visitor Center if you have an active or retired ID card. Gate entry was smooth all three times I passed through. Diesel is not sold at the nearby Exchange gas station. Self service car wash is next to the combined gas station/Class VI. - SunStar203

Great campground. All sites are pull-through full hook-up. Big concrete pads and long sides. More than enough room for our 35' motorhome and out toad. Sites are level and utilities are an easy connection. There is no office on site. There is a campground host. Call ahead for a reservation, they will assign you a site and you just drive to it and park. Be sure and follow the directions on this site, and not the brown signs on the base, or you will end up pointed the wrong way. Bathhouse facilities are small but clean. Only one shower each. Nice well equipped laundry site. Plenty of nice places to walk your pet. Even a paved jogging trail through the forest right nearby. We had good reception of all the local major TV stations and good satellite reception. Verizon connected fine. WiFi signal is week but connectable. You have to get information about the WiFi up in the Laundry building. If you are coming to the area, or want an nice short term, this is a great place. Clean, safe, big sites. As we were arriving at Gate 9, they flagged us over to the far right and a wide width gate entrance. It was closed, but they opened it for us. - Magnum34

We stayed here for a week, while surveying the Huntsville area for retirement location. We called ahead and the manager told us that if he wasn't there (having hand surgery that day), to just pick a spot and we'd settle later. It's easy to find: midway between Lacey's Springs and Morgan City, and on the west side of US-231. Mostly long-term singles/couples in this park: most working at Redstone Arsenal, but everything is neat and well-kept, and it's quiet (and no dogs running loose).
It's an older park, but water/sewer/electric are all in good repair, and there is a small building with washer/dryer (and shower still in-work). (Figuring you ought to be fully self-contained at this park.) Our site was level, and plenty long for our 35-footer and TOAD. It's not a "destination," nor would we call it "kid-friendly," but it sure is a nice place to hang your hat while visiting the area, or passing through. - johngalt

We stayed here while visiting family that lived just a few miles away. It was a nice, quiet park. We had a pull-through site that required little leveling. No amenities here (they do have a laundry and rest room, but it is an old trailer with a bathroom and one washer and dryer). Very nice owners who live on site. We would stay here again when visiting family. - SheilaB104

Used this campground as a base of operations while visiting my daughter and granddaughter for two weeks. We ate a lot of hot dogs and schmors. Site 30 was a nice pull through FHU site. Site was level and right on the corner, so it was fun watching the world go by. Verizon work fine, both data and voice. ATT data okay, but phone required you to be outside the trailer for long conversations. The office staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. - moderate camper

This is a older state park that is beginning to show its age. It is in need of a few repairs. The park is in a great location. The sites are nice. - chub

This park had great spacing between sites, as well as level sites. You drive through several neighborhoods on your way to the park. Host at late arrival was helpful, but maybe more signage needed to know he's at the first RV site to your left when you park near campground office. Good water pressure, good electric, and very convenient to Huntsville. (Use Governor's Drive. The other route, Bankhead Parkway, has two many hairpin turns.) - webtrainer

Campground is right on the lake. We were lucky and picked two of the best campsites for lakefront views. Campground was clean, sites were tight getting into but spaced well apart for the most part. About half the campground is taken up by seasonal sites and they were clean and quiet. Camp staff was knowledgeable and helpful. - LDW5707

Beautiful campground with awesome view of the mountains around the lake. We stayed on the lakefront for just 2 nights. Boat access nearby and several fishing piers. Nice roomy, wooded sites. Will go back. - CLCampers

Honeycomb is Federal property (TVA) leased to a management company. The layout and general construction is similar to a COE or US Federal Service campground. The management company does a good job in running this park. The facilities are well maintained.
Honeycomb has a monthly rate, and many of the campers here are "long term". However, the campground does not resemble a typical private campground with close spaced campers and plumbed in sewer connections. In fact, there are no sewer connections on these sites.
The sites are well spaced and level. Most are large enough for a motorhome, but check with the office before reserving; the map published on the Honeycomb website does not have lengths indicated on it. There is a nice fishing pier available to the campers and another close dock for boaters. There are two trails for hiking - one just around the CG and another longer trail that goes along the lake. Most sites are partially shady, but with enough holes in the trees to allow for satellite reception. There is a swimming beach also.
There is a small camp store that has junk food, camping supplies a d fishing worms.
The discount rate they offer for seniors is 10%. I forgot to ask for it when I registered and asked about it when I Checked in. Instead of giving me a refund for the 10%, they gave me a store credit, which was fine with me.
This is a nice CG and we will return. - Bama Camper

Convenient access to Hwy. Downside is it's to close to hwy. Road noise began about 4:30 and was pretty constant. No problems with site, level pull thru. If you can ignore traffic noise it's just fine. - abqnm

We stayed monthly. The monthly cost was good but did not include cable, wifi, and they provided only a modest electrical credit. No cell phone service for T-Mobile (at all) but Verizon and AT&T worked. The pool was already closed end of August. No park manager on site until 12:30 pm every day as the owners run a small gas station 1/2 mile from RV park. In cold weather, they require you to weather proof the water feed or they turn it off. If you need cable it cost extra and they don't provide cable wire. We couldn't get over the air tv at all. Owners were easy to talk to but always too busy to help with any issue except selling propane. Traffic noise was aweful. I would not advise anyone to plan a long term stay as we did but a two or three day overnight would be fine. Just don't arrive before 12:00 pm unless you can call them. - Wilhite

A small park and small sites. Mine was about 20'x45'. The owner is very outgoing and helpful with local info. The 4 lane to the space center is right there. Very little traffic. Easy access and easy return. No worry's about city streets and such. Basic admission to space center $25. ea. No cable but antenna got locals and sat for the rest. Wifi OK at the enclosure in center of park. The salt water pool was very refreshing. Lots of room to walk the dog. Ok for a few days to see the local area, but sites are small. - Libby

For a park in the state park system, this park gives Alabama a bad name. The park is in a valley near the Cathedral Cavern park building. It is not very well maintained. There are no lights in the park at night. The water faucet at my site was broken and leaked badly. The bathrooms were in poor conditions with many toilets and showers not working. the sites are all gravel with little room to enter or leave the site in a large vehicle. The sites are also not level. You will need leveling pads for certain. There is no cell service in the area, no TV and no WIFI. You must go at least five miles away from the park to get cell service. The only thing we enjoyed about the park was the tour of the Caverns. This is a very beautiful cave system and a must see, but do not camp overnight at the park. - chevytrkr

We were looking for a camp site for the night near the Unclaimed Baggage store in Scottsboro, and this was close and on the way. We arrived at the state park at night without reservations but the gate to the park and visitors center was closed. We were about to leave when a Ranger pulled up behind us and pointed out that we had passed the campground road a few hundred feet back and we could just pick a spot and pay in the morning (just watch for the small campground sign on the right just after you make the last turn to the park road). He then helped us back into one of the electric back-in sites, which were actually pretty wide and long enough to allow us to keep our 16' Camper and pickup attached.
The sites are all grass, entered from a gravel loop road. The electric and water sites appear to be back-in, and there are a few primitive pull-through sites inside the loop, mostly used by tenters and class B vans.
The restroom was well lit and clean. They hope to get a dump station next year, but there was none available at this time.
This would be an excellent spot for a visit to the nice caverns at this state park, they are just up the hill at the visitors center. - johnhag

Stayed for a week, close to the Interstate so your able to get anywhere in Huntsville quickly. Park could use some TLC on the roads (asphalt is breaking up) and power hook-ups need some help. Our spot was ok to get into but very hard to get out of due to a tree next to the spot and the unit across from us, had to go against the one way sign. Overall a nice place and the people were helpful. Will stay there again if they have a space. - rivethook

I've been to the Space & Rocket center many times over many years, and I had no idea this place even existed. Stayed here for a week. Great location right next to USSRC, Huntsville, and I-565. Very quiet - with the exception of the kids blasting off rockets from Space Camp which was cool to see. Trees and shade surround every spot in the park. We stayed here during Hurricane Harvey, and the surrounding trees protected us from Category 1 wind. Staff was accommodating. Didn't like the fact that they were advertising free WiFi but didn't have it. Roads are tight & windy but still fairly simple to traverse. The bent the rules for me to come stay there because my travel trailer was barely large enough to fit in the space they had for me. Therefore, my camper was on a bit of a sideway slant. They force cars that can't fit in the spots to park up front, but they made an exception for me to park in the grass next to my trailer. It was wet when I departed, so I left truck tire marks in the landscape but they didn't say a word. Some of the spots look like they could be difficult to get into, even with smaller RV's. Only thing I didn't like was the water hookup was way below the ground on my site and difficult to connect to. If there was rain or a leak in the hose, the water connection was underwater. In addition, one time they had one another site's power go out, and they had to shut down the power to all sites for an hour. Bottom Line - I would absolutely stay here again and I would recommend others to do the same. - RLT1

I chose a 5 rating because of the lack of good power issue. This is a very workable park for visiting the Space and Rocket center. We know how to manage on 30 A but we expect full voltage on 30 A. When we arrived, the input was 117 V but with one AC on, the voltage dropped to 108 V. It began fluctuating severely and eventually my AC stopped. Over our stay, the voltage ranged from 102 Volts with only a single portable cooktop running (no AC or water heater) to 123V this AM when we woke up (outside temp was low 60's) with no park AC's running. Fortunately the weather was comfortable, but I would not stay here in warm weather. Overall - it's a great location and a great bargain. Ironically, we left as a rodeo for electrical workers was being hosted this weekend. They could have fixed it! (can't add this to the site number but it was sloped 2 degrees to the rear, and 6 degrees from driver to passenger side) - cherib

Clean park with concrete or paved sites. Owner owned sites. Most are back in, although there are six huge modern pull through. Public lake access within a mile. Park roads are somewhat tight but easily negotiated. - GIJoe2011

Great Park. Ownership, but they do rent some sites. Very friendly, near lots of wilderness, hiking, parks and lakes for fishing. - User3143

A little out of the way and not on the lake, but very clean and a very friendly manager. This is a deed purchase park where unused lots are rented as camp sites. All roads are paved, and the sites are large with concrete pads and patios. Water hook up was a little inconvenient, but managable. We would stay here again. - ratracer
