We stayed overnight at this RV Park just off I-65. It is very easy in and out. The staff in the office were friendly and helpful. There are apparently several restaurants and shopping nearby. We would stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This was simply an over-night stop, so all

I can provide is my experience over a 15-hour period. Was actually here on 12/27, but it keeps coming up as November.

Unlevel campsite. Paved but sloped downhill and to one side. Lots of low hanging tree branches. Asked to have branches trimmed and they were trimmed. Required 30 ft sewer hose. Dirty shower stalls. Ok for overnight stop. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 40' MH with toad. Relatively easy to access. Staff was polite and efficient during check-in. Interior roads were rough but adequate (just have to go very slow because of ruts and steepness). Some pads were paved, others were packed gravel. Many were shaded but seemed to be mostly occupied by longterm residents. Our site was without shade but satellite friendly. Did not use the laundry and bathhouse but checked on them. They were dated but very clean with many separate shower rooms. Power at our site was marginal with one leg dropping to 109v during warm periods. Wifi was better than most and was adequate for checking email and light web-surfing. Cable offered but we did not use. Many OTA stations available. There were nearby trains that created quite a bit of early morning noise. Seems best for easy highway access for short stays. We would use it again.

We were a little concerned because of other reviews. This place turned out to be a gem; staff was courteous and our spot was 70 feet long and we are 65 towing, so no problems there. Laundry looks good clean $1.50 wash $1.50 dry. Stayed a week. The campground provides shopping and restaurant information which helped a lot. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

The people there are fantastic and very friendly. Checking in late was painless. The only "ding" is that there is not a lot of room to park a second vehicle at the site. I didn't realize where the overflow lot was until the second day. This is very minor and did not impact our feelings about this park. Bring milk because they don't sell it in the store at the park. We'll be back! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This looks like an old KOA. It was almost full. Sites are too small for large rigs - many were sticking in road in front or back. They seem busy so I don't know why they haven't spent money on keeping the place up. The paving is broken up, gravel is sparse. The utilities work well including limited cable. Staff was friendly. Its location near I-65 make a popular stop over spot, but in my opinion, not for an extended stay. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is your basic one-night-stand park. We have been here before and appreciate its proximity to the highway. The staff is terrific which goes a long way for making up for some of the less-than-desirable sites in the park. Everything functions fine and there is really nothing terribly wrong with the place...it's just a little worn as are some of the RV's and long-term residents in the park. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I had originally planned to use the park for an overnight stay, but a main engine starter failure upon arrival on a Friday night meant I was there until the following Monday to get another unit from the Birmingham supplier. The park didn't have a problem with the issue and repairs were completed ASAP. Nice staff, accommodated my repair issue with no drama encountered. Somewhat tight access for a 40'+ motorhome, but not bad and water/power was not an issue. The park is in Pelham, which is on the south side of Birmingham and is wooded, hilly and has some of the nicest/smiling people you would want to meet. These people appear to like where they live and what they do, because they are about as happy as they could be. A definite return recommendation. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a difficult park to rate. There are some sites that are average while others are well below average. This is the 2nd time we have overnighted here in 3 years and I saw no improvements from 2.5 years ago. The perk is still a worn down old KOA. It is a convenient place relative to I-65 to stop and that's about it. There are many restaurants and stores within about 3 miles which adds to the convenience. They have a nice pool and the showers appear clean although nothing fancy. There are several long term residents and several rough looking sites. They have WiFi, but I didn't try using it. There is no cable TV offered, which I would expect at $40/night. This should be priced at less than $35/night before discount for what is offered. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice camp ground. Was just an overnight stop for us so we did not use any facilities. People were friendly and helpful. Bit pricey for what you get. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Decent older park that needs some maintenance. We had no problems except getting level, and that was doable. A number of sites looked like they have the same problem. OK to stay now but they need to start working on some things. Asphalt roads and concrete pads are starting to crumble. Power pedestal had seen better days but it works. Cable TV was out completely. Verizon signal was weak but usable. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

The RV park we planned stay at was filled by the time we called ahead (before noon). We therefore used an old Woodall's directory to choose this one while en route. We did not have an opportunity to read RV Park Reviews ahead of time and agree with the generally low reviews this park received. Sites varied from smaller shaded back-ins to longer shaded or unshaded pull -throughs that could accommodate larger RVs. The noise from I-65 diminished at night. But train horns could be clearly heard at night about every 90 minutes. The WiFi was very weak and mostly useless. Our site was grass/weeds/dirt, but level and long enough to not have to unhook our toad. The site included an old concrete patio with a picnic table. The nightly rate for a 50 amp pull-through with a Good Sam discount was overpriced. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is conveniently located, is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.

The overnight site we had was very close to the sites on either side. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.
