We stayed here on the way home from Florida. Very easy access off the interstate. Clean place and very helpful staff. Site spacious with some shade and includes a picnic table. Surface is asphalt. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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

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.

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.
