Roads have deteriorated over the years and are rough, sites are very poorly maintained. This is our 7th stop here since 2005. They now do Not have cable TV even though it is still advertised, but there are signs in the office. Overnight only!! - jasper0803
Good park for an overnight or two while traveling. Not far off interstate. Large enough to be able to walk at end of a long day. Sites seem either really good and level or sort of scrappy and not level - ours was great. Railroad tracks nearby so you hear a whistle now and then (you barely hear the train) Wooded. Lots of song birds. We'd stay here again. - User3490
Site was not level but was quiet with no road noise. The interior roads were tight for a big rig. Seemed to be many permanent renters. Adequate for overnight stay. - Barbie Queue
I paid about $30/night for W/E only, and the price increases on the weekend. Seems a bit expensive to me for a state park, but I understand their budget cut from the state is not very good and needs some form of revenue. We were here back in the fall and enjoy the park. We do work over the internet so Verizon coverage is essential for us. We started on the A side of the campground but LTE data was intermittant and couldn't do our job, so we switched sites to the B side where both Verizon and tv antennae signal were stronger. We were practically by ourselves during the week, but the campground filled up for the weekend. Volunteers parole the campground often and constantly busy with maintenance, doing a good job. - Sara C.
Not much has changed from recent reports except: East gate on Cahaba Valley DR is now open in the winter until five PM and that is good news. New Park management has decided on 4PM check-in time. Something we have not experienced in almost 50,000 miles of camping. Planning and driving a big rig to meet 4PM arrival time in Birmingham rush hour traffic! Been coming here once or twice a year for over five years and will come again. Price is with water, electric, sewer and 15% senior discount. - ctpres
This park is a great place to visit! So many activities to enjoy here such as horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, hiking, a waterfall, etc. There is no weekly rate, only monthly during their off-season. The daily rate increases over the weekend, $28 is the average we're paying for water/elec only. Sewer is $3 extra, but there is a dump station if you don't need FHU. Electric is 30 amp. There are many volunteers who live here and they keep the place immaculately clean, and have been very friendly and helpful (had a couple of issues happen in our RV). Every site has a picnic table and metal firepit with grill cover, sites are pretty level and most are paved. There is lots of shade parking and plenty of bath houses so no one is walking too far to use one. Only 2 of the houses on the B campground has coin-operated laundry, this is the only area I noticed that doesn't get cleaned often. The layout of the campsites allow you to feel more private - not too cramped. We parked in B19 which is at the very end of the row, with a short walk to the bath house w/ laundry and the lake. We can actually see the water through the trees from this spot. For those with Verizon, I can't seem to get service anywhere in the park except for the campground - I get 2-3 signal bars and actually get LTE data here! The website says there is wifi but it hasn't been working for months - the only place with working free wifi is the Snack Bar next to the golf course. We love it here so we extended our stay for a few more days. - Sara C.
