They are working on improving this campground. The interior roads need repair & some of the sites are being converted to concrete or Asphalt. Our site was so roomy. We had lots of space on either side. FHU, pull through, cable, WiFi all were good. Very friendly & helpful staff. 20 minutes to Birmingham. Plenty of shopping nearby. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Site we were on was not possible to become level. We had ants all over including running up our water hose. Speed bumps in/out will clean out your cabinets! Very extreme! Management is difficult to work with. We would never stay here again. There is a reason KOA sold this dump. It needs a lot of work to make it acceptable. We are full time & stay in many RV parks. This one rates very low on our list! Not worth $43 for sure! Go down the road...other very nice looking parks for less money. It seems most sites are not level. We had to unhook our tow in order to get anywhere near level. Best advice: find another RV park! Not worth the freight! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed September 30 and October 7. Great and easy place to get on and off interstate. Check in was easy, staff was great. The sites we had was easy to get in and out. Some sites were not. Only thing I would suggest is do some paving and upgrading the parking pads. We enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay there again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for an overnight. It is a great park. We had a large pull through with plenty of room. Hookups were great. No problem leveling. I had read reviews about the roads being tight, but we had no problem in our 40' MH and toad attached. I guess if other campers parked their toads sticking out on roads, there could be a problem in places, but the roads themselves are plenty wide. Would definitely stay here again.

This is an old KOA, has small gravel roads and sites. Leveling was a bit of an issue, but we managed. There is a section in the trees that are permanent and the transient sites all seem to be in the sun. There was the obligatory train noise, but otherwise was quiet. We would stop here again traveling through the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Speed bumps in entrance were a bit high, creeping across still jarred everything. Interior roads need upkeep. It is a Good Sam park now but was a KOA. Site was no where near level. Used 4 inches of block under front tires to level. A cement block was provided to place on top of sewer to hold in place. It has a tired look to it but we were only staying one night so it was adequate. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground has easy access to I-65. It has wide roads but narrow asphalt pads which need repair, but we leveled without any issue. The utilities are located on the front of the pad - we had to move very forward in the site for our electrical cord to reach. When opened, our front slide was very close to the utility pole, so be very careful when opening up. There were trees but we got satellite signal without issues. The wifi was inconsistent. The park is clean but it needs updating. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Ok for overnight stay. Somewhat dated park but convenient to 1-65 and 10 miles south of Birmingham. Stayed overnight in pull through site 52. Interior roads are paved. Sites have asphalt pads in poor shape and a picnic table. My site was not level and electrical box at far end of site that I could not reach with my power cable. Fortunately I carry a 15 ft 50amp extension. Most sites have lots of trees but my site was open enough to get satellite. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Our site was level and shaded but many others were not. About half the campground appears to be for permanent residents. The restrooms were clean. Showers also clean but quite small; getting dressed was a chore. I didn't use the WiFi, but the cable TV and cell service was adequate. Lots of room to walk your dog. Pool area looked inviting, but we did laundry instead. On-site convenience store. Overall OK, but a little pricey even with the Good Sam discount. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice staff and well stocked store. Our site was easy to turn into but there were others that had interesting experiences. Our satellite setup was easy but there were others where it would be impossible because of trees. Good ATT and convenient shopping areas. That being said it is VERY noisy in the AM. Everyone in the surrounding area must go to work on a Harley or a truck with no muffler between 5:30 AM- 6:30 AM! We carry an external wifi adapter and were able to get a good signal but the wifi itself was one step above useless. We do not stream movies etc, just email and some surfing. It would sometimes take 3-4 minutes to load a site if you didn't get dropped first. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is very clean. Restrooms were spotless and each shower stall was private with its own door. In mid April, almost every site was taken and the long RV in front of us was turned away, due to no big sites left. We noticed many long term campers. Nice place, but you may need reservations.

Easy access and egress firm I-65. Not far from Birmingham and the town of Pelham has everything you need and is easy to get to. The campground appears to be an old KOA site. Some sites are not very level which can be difficult for some units to level, saw a few units next to us have a bit of trouble getting level. Staff is friendly. Campground is clean. The internal roads need a bit of work as they have some potholes and broken pavement. Only small issue is the dogs barking during the day by main house/garage at back of campground, after awhile can get a bit annoying. Good value place. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is where we have stayed long term (several months) for the last few years. We are big fans, and have watched it improve every visit. There has been a recent change in ownership/management, and renovations are in the planning stage. The staff continues to be friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are dated but immaculate. All utilities are reliable, the cable was recently updated and works well with 25 channels, and the wifi is adequate for basic needs. The Campground is centrally located with good shopping/services nearby. We will happily stay again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
