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.

Site was gravel with a concrete patio and sloped down at the nose of the rig. Water pressure was around 40PSI and 50a electric was stable. Our site width was generous. Restroom facilities were clean and maintained. The grounds and pool were clean and maintained. Wi-Fi performance was spotty so we used our hotspot mostly. Cable was available but the over-the-air channels were plentiful and strong. We would stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you're traveling and just stopping for the night you should not worry about getting here early to spend a relaxing evening watching tv or working on the internet. There's almost zero TV reception and poor, close to no, wifi signal. Other than that the park suits our needs as a convenient stop on our route to Biloxi. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Well kept grounds, restrooms, laundry area and office staff on site. Multiple trailers that appear to be permanent. Some shade and some pull through sites for short term renters. No TV cable and internet is spotty.

Water and sewer hookups appear to be in all sites. If you can get used to the trains at night not a bad long term. No restaurants or shops in walking distance except a Home Depot. Just off interstate 65 exit.

High season STARTS in April. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for one night on the way to Barber Vintage Motorcycle Festival.
It is about a 25 minute drive to Barber Motorsports.
The campsite was long enough for a pull through including the tow-dolly. Gravel and some grass. Some broken concrete "patios"
WiFi was adequate. TV reception limited. Did not use any facilities.
Rules were quite detailed and a big turn-off, as one did not feel that they could relax for fear of breaking a rule!
Be sure to call for directions. Mapquest did not recognize County Road 33, and neither did Garmen.

Keep windows closed and something running inside to drown out the train horn at 2:30 am...that sounded like it was coming right through the campground!

The person I spoke with on the phone was very accomodating and gave good directions.
Not fancy, but worked fine for us. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Barber Motorsports about 25 minutes away.

1 night stay. They were able to accommodate us with a pull thru so we did not have to unhook our toad. We have a 32' MH & with the toad attached, we used up all the space. Some roads paved, some pea gravel. Sites were pea gravel, level and easy access to FHUs. Trash pu at site.
This is an older campground that appears to be cared for on a daily basis. Our check in was smooth and the attendant was very friendly and helpful.
We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a rough campground if you are in a big rig, the overnight sites are on the side of a hill, Roads are in need of help. I had my coach so twisted to get level that I was afraid to put out the slides. It is almost full tonight with overnighters, would have been better off at walmart down the road.

We have stayed here several times, and found it more friendly and cooperative than past stays. We wanted full shade and were assigned a different site. I agree that some sites and drives need some improvement but overall the quality is excellent. No cable, but air TV was enough. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

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
