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!! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a very good Italian restaurant nearby called Joe's ask at the office for directions

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. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Will never stop here again. Broken concrete and railroad ties will greet you at your site. You have to be careful driving into a site. Roads are in need of major repair. Pot holes, etc. Did not have enough room to put out the big slide. 50 amp worked fine. Staff was friendly. If you do stop make sure you tell them that you don't want to be under trees and would like a pull-through, and good luck. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Listen, it's not a bad place. Just not a great place. It needs some serious repaving and the spaces are tight for a big rig to get into (but I did it!) because one side is flanked by random concrete (broken up) and the other by railroad ties that encompass the hookups. The power was steady, and we can pull some amps, but the Wi-Fi was like most and slooooow. We didn't use the bathrooms. Nice staff, delivered a package for us after hours. We will likely stay again, but I'm gonna gripe about being too expensive for what it is. If they paved the place and removed the barriers to getting into a site it would easily be worth the $42. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice, clean restrooms. Laundry and all facilities were nice and clean. Pool was very nice. Roads need paving. Some lots not level. Cable not to working in some areas. Internet sketchy. Some long term campers in the back but they were friendly, well kept and nicely decorated. Not a problem there. They should invest some money in the roads and parking. Other than that, I would definitely recommend the campground. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our 5th time at this former KOA park. It honors the Good Sam discount now. Our 1st time was in June 2011 and it has gotten better on each visit. We have stayed in 7 different sites. On this visit we were in a long term back-in site and the rate reflects their monthly charge (30 days) for a 50 amp site. It was $627, and that includes a state tax of $75. The asphalt site was in fair shape and almost level. The surfaces of the sites we have stayed in have been fair to good. Some are gravel, some are asphalt, some have concrete walks, but it has been a while since the sites have been worked on. A lot of the concrete is broken and a lot of the asphalt sites need resurfacing. There are a few sites that look unusable. Water and electric and sewer has always worked fine. There has been a lot of asphalt patching and the roads are much better. The Wi-Fi has recently improved too. We have always been able to get a good shot with our DirecTV portable dish. Verizon 4G works fairly well too. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. When we pulled in we had a problem with the site next to us and as soon as we brought it to the attention of the office, they took care of it. There are some negatives. Propane sales stopped being available while we were there. They have a large tank and we have purchased propane many times. Management told us there was a leak, it was shut down and that it would be at least 2 weeks before it was repaired. The only dog "run" is a quite small fenced area on the extreme north side. It would be nice if there was another one on the south side. The park cable is very bad. There are signs up acknowledging that and stating that it will be upgraded soon. Long term residents told us that the signs had been up since April. We will stay again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here a week for the SEC Baseball tournament in Hoover. This facility was convenient for this. Best restrooms and showers I have ever seen at a campground. Lots of permanent or semi-permanent residents. However, every site is neat and clean. Many with improvements to beautify their area with well made flower beds, decks and screens. Don't let comments that there are some permanents here be of concern. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It rained a lot while we were there, and some sites were flooded and had to move during the night. The sewer overflowed. Not a pretty campground but convenient. The cable did not work when we were there. Internet was slow, but usable. Not the most friendliest staff. We seemed to be bothering them when we got in, and everyone in the front desk stopped to listen to our conversation with the clerk. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's a site that's convenient to Birmingham. Overall a pretty good site, but the detractors included poor asphalt and non-level sites. Drainage is poor; there had been significant rain and quite a few sites were flooded (we were assigned a site high up enough to not be affected). Cable was very poor quality; antenna reception was marginal due to nearby hills. Noisy due to a nearby train and many workers departing in trucks to work early in the morning. Not a bad campsite, but the amenities do not support the price. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is a pretty good stop for an overnight stay. There is easy access from the highway. It's a former KOA. Some sites have broken pads and leveling was a bit tricky. Owners were friendly and helpful. We will stay again for an overnight. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at Birmingham South several times as an overnight stop for one night. Good location for restaurants, fuel, etc. The restrooms and shower facilities are the cleanest you will ever see in a commercial RV park. The Wi-Fi works very well. There are several full time residents here. The cable television hasn't worked the last three times we stopped here. Several of the sites are not level. The asphalt is breaking up a lot on many sites and the concrete walk in front of each site is also in bad shape on many of the sites. For $42.00 per night for 50AMP is a little more than I want to pay until they work on the cable and sites. Will probably stay a little further down the road for a lot less.

Although the website says cable exists, it is extremely poor quality. Antenna was much better reception with no "snow". The sites are very short - not really enough room for a large 5th wheel and a pickup. My main complaint was ants everywhere! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here overnight. It was very difficult to level and ended up changing sites. Cable was out and too many trees for satellite. Rate, which is too high for what you get, reflects 50 amp and Good Sam discount. Access from interstate was easy. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is an old KOA and has several full time residents; however, it was clean and maintained, had a nice pool, and plenty of shade. We were only going to stay one night without unhooking, but stayed two nights because of bad weather. We had to pay an extra fee for 50 amp. service, but other than that it was a decent stay. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
