Office was very good to move my reservation and accommodate me when I had to adjust because of weather up north. Sites were fine. Park seemed clean. There was little high way noise, but there was an occasional train that was close. I would stay there again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here two nights while visiting the area. Only reserve for the number of nights you wish to stay there are no refunds for early departures. This park is off the highway but there are train tracks nearby. While staying at this park there was an outbreak of severe thunderstorms/tornado. The office staff told us where to go if we felt unsafe in the RV. The cable TV was very good and local channels kept us informed. Our site was level and had a concrete patio and picnic table. We did not use any of the facilities. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Old KOA site taken over 15 years ago. Clean but needs to be refurbished as the pads are crumbling and not to level. About 40% of sites are FT. Cable is all fuzz but good H2O pressure. Stay 5 nights while we played the RTJ golf trail. Ross Bridge & Oxmoor Valle Ridge. Close to many services. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

This is obviously an old KOA, with emphasis on old. There are signs the owners are trying to make some improvements, and they will be welcomed. The sites are spacious and our pull-through was long enough that I could hook up the car and get it ready to tow without having to move the motorhome. The wifi was strong. All of the utilities worked well. All of this made up for the cracked asphalt on our site and on the roads. There are two downsides of this site. One is beyond the ability of the owners to do anything about - there is an active rail line about 1/4 mile air distance from the park. While the train noise did not bother me in the least, it might others, so I want to note that just in case someone might care. I rather liked the trains. The other big factor is that the owners will NOT allow check-in prior to noon. They will not even check to see if your site is available. If you arrive before noon, you'll be told to go somewhere else until noon. They were, in fact, quite rude to me when I arrive about 90 minutes early. When I went away and then came back after noon, it was a totally different experience. Everyone was very welcoming an courteous. So, do expect to see some changes for the better, do expect a convenient place to park while seeing Birmingham, but don't dare show up before noon. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Birmingham is famous for Vulcan, of course, and has an excellent zoo. Oak Mountain State Park has great recreational facilities. Pelham is literally just over the hill from the campground and has plenty of shopping of all sorts.

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.
