Some pull throughs are concrete ( and level) others are asphalt and NOT level. Lots of shade trees, paved roads, very pleasent staff. No firepits at sites. Office closes at 6PM so get there early. Would camp here again. Trains run frequently at night and keep their horns blaring quite a while. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A bit above average campground. A little further from Birmingham than I thought advertised. Very nice staff. Probably would look for somewhere else to stay next time. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We like this campground. Has Cable TV, WIFI, and close to I-65. There are a lot of shade trees and the only reason that I do not give it 10/10 is because our site was not level, but everything else was great. Friendly staff and clean restrooms and showers even though we used our own. We camped here in a truck/camper, and will return when in the area.

Nice and clean park for overnight stays. A bit crowded. The WiFi was out the first day and weak on the second. We were here for 3 nights. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground offered just about everything we needed for our one-night motorhome stay. Everything functioned properly, staff was cordial, restrooms were extremely clean and the atmosphere was peaceful. Access from the Interstate was convenient. Most impressive: a magnificently appointed store, complete with several less-than-common RV components. WiFi service was excellent. Probably wouldn't want to spend an extended time here, but, for our purposes, it filled the bill well. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We camp here several times per year. We only live about 30 minutes away and enjoy just getting away. We stay at this campground and still go to work daily. Sites have always been clean and maintained. We normally camp at site #4. It is close to the interstate for those of you that want to find someplace to camp as you are on your way to the beach or just someplace to get away for a while. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is old and appears to have been a KOA. It has a number of long time residents and they have the sites that are along the sides in the trees and shade. All sites are gravel, not level but close enough. Pool is nice, laundry is nice, restrooms are nice. Trash pickup along each site every morning. Employees were nice. We stayed here over the Memorial Day Weekend. The shore power is modified to handle 50 amp units but were configured so I could not use my surge suppressor for the 30 amp connection. Water faucets are close to the ground so I had to rework how I use my regulator and water filter. There are two faucets for each site, never saw another CG that was made this way. Sewer was good, no problems. This is not a pretty campground but is was doable. We looked around at other campgrounds in the area, Hoover Stadium and Oak Mountain SP and were glad we stayed here. Picnic tables were very old and warped. This could be a nice campground if they made a number of minor improvements. Have a nice pavilion by the main office. Kids in the area liked the pool. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We selected this campground based on Internet research, a little scary. What a pleasure to discover that it is a really nice place! The management has been super. The ENTIRE place is clean and orderly! A very nice store is maintained. Each site has a concrete patio with a picnic table. Almost every site has shade trees. We are close to lots and still a little secluded. We will definitely be back. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We used this Park as a home base to sight see it the area. We were very pleased with it and the staff was very helpful. Some posters have complained about them charging for AC, at least they give you a choice, most parks just have it added in their price and everybody pays if you use it or not. With Good Sams discount it was $33, not bad for everything including WiFi. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

I really like the campground a lot: it was extremely clean and quiet; it has all the amenities that I needed; and it is close to the freeway. There is one main problem with this site - there is a train station near by. Normally, listening to train going by is NOT a big problem. In this case, trains like to horn about 5-7 seconds strait when they are about to take off. This happens once or twice a night. I originally signed up with the site as a long term guest(30 days - maybe 2/3 months longer) because I was between jobs and starting in a new city. After the first night of no sleep due to the trains, I discussd the train noise problem with the site manager and wanted to cancel my long term stay (I was very willing to pay the highest fee for the one night stay). Needless to say, the manager flatly refused and indicated that they only allow customer change of mind upto the 1st hour. How the heck am I going to know there are a train near by? She also indicated that it is an inconvenience for her to do so(accumulate other charges from the credit company). Because I am between jobs, I don't have the liberty of dropping everything and moving on. More importantly, $520 is a lot of money for me to overcome. Hence, I bought $3 ear plugs to deal with my issues with the campsite. As soon I have made enough money, I am leaving this train central. Until then there will be a lot of sleepless nights for me. As for this campsite, it is obvious the site manager doesn't care about customer service, it is a matter of greed and convenience to them. Hence, if you don't like noisy sites and don't like being disturbed in the middle of night, don't come here. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an older park, but is well maintained and in excellent condition. We stayed only one night on our way to somewhere else, but really enjoyed it and we will definitely stay here again. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The WiFi is great! Nice areas for walking your pet. There is also a nice playground, pool, and laundry. We liked this place a lot.

Park was clean and sites were better than average. The major complaint with this campground is their a la carte pricing; e.g. it cost an extra $3 to use your air conditioning. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

The price was not worth the stay. Nothing there to warrant the cost of one night stay. $2 extra for A/C, wrong. No quiet time apparently. One group was making loud and making noise until after 1:30am. They set off their car alarm and allowed it to blare for minutes. Sites are so so, crowded. I would not stay here again.
