This is a good stop-over campground with easy access to and from the interstate. As a result it is a very busy campground, but staff is well organized and helpful, so the check-in process is very smooth. They have a large camp store, and a fenced-in dog-run area that was most welcome. We would stay here again on our way South We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Had all the amenities, but seemed a little run-down, maybe due to the time of the year and nothing was green. As was said, cable was limited, WiFi was slow. Staff was friendly, and they had a small fenced dog park. Well stocked store with RV supplies. Our site was level, but needed paving. Hard to get sewer hose to run downhill due to landscape timbers around the hookup. We stayed here on way from Florida: this price was more than down there. We will stay here again due to good location. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Park has some wet areas and needs drainage, has a number of seasonal users who are respectful and normally keep their lots tidy and clean. Cable is poor but a sign indicates they are exploring improvements. Train can be annoying but certainly tolerable. Great location just off the main hiway and close to all amenities Desk clerks are friendly and helpful, the General Mtce man is attentive, friendly and willing to offer assistance and information where required. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I wish I had read the reviews before staying here. They charged $3 extra for 50 amp, which is fine, however $1 extra for sewer is out of line. Pull-through site was good and level. The train noise is awful. I agree with previous reviews, The cable is pathetic, we did not try the Wi-Fi. We will not stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I thankfully was only passing through and stayed here just one night. Bad cable TV signal with few channels. Wi-Fi was way slower than most campgrounds I’ve stayed at. Have Good Sam discount and I agree with others that $40 for this place is way too high. They have eight unisex showers which can be nice. However, they appear to keep half of them locked to (I assume) save work by not having to clean all eight. If you are going to do that, then you need to at least spot clean the four you leave open more often. Because of that fact, in my opinion the showers were disgusting. Bathrooms were okay overall, but one of the two hand dryers in the men’s bathroom is not working and the other one barely produces any power to actually dry your hands. There were quite a few wood ashes left at my site from a previous camper. The showers did have really good hot water and high pressure, the location is a plus, the store had a good selection, and the people I dealt with were friendly. Need to fix the cable TV and Wi-Fi and tighten up a few things and they’d have a solid campground. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Truck Camper.

We only stayed one night, thank goodness. This is an old KOA and hasn't been a KOA for 9 years. Sites are gravel. This should have told us something. KOA uses a park until it is worn out. The only good things about this park is the water pressure, voltage, and proximity to I-65. Site was not level, tree branches brushing the side of the trailer but I cut them off. Cable is barely watchable. Wi-Fi is as slow or slower than dial up. We had a pull through site and it is good we didn't want to unhook since it would not have been long enough if we had. Another thing, $40 with Good Sam discount is a ridiculous price for what is here. We will not stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lot's of permanent residents, some in FEMA trailers. Those sites are not well kept. Sites are long but narrow and not in good shape. Full hook up rate of $44.00 way too much for this park. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park for a day or two stay. Seems to have quite a few full timers there. Lots gravel/dirt yet level. Was quiet except for the trains that ran off and on all night long blowing its whistle. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Office lady was very nice and helpful. Grass needed cutting. It had rained nite before we arrived, but grass still long. Back of park and right side were long term campers and it is very messy. I would stay there again. Store is well stocked and park is very near stores. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

There seems to be some long termers, and the majority of the rest were overnighters on the way to Florida. Close to highway and pull through sites for those that did not want to unhook the tow. Pool was nice and the park was clean. If you want satellite, then pick sites with no trees. Would stay again for an overnight stop. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice reception area and store. Several pull throughs. Nice pool. Doggie area is dirty. Weeds in grass were a foot high the whole 5 days we were there. Easy to reach from I-65. One row of seasonals getting a little seedy. Could be a great park but they need to do a better job cleaning and landscaping. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Park seemed to be unkempt. Staff was friendly. Showers and restroom were clean 2 of the 3 days we were here. Good park layout. Dog park needed cleaned and some work. Would return if in the area again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Overpriced for what they have. Off season rate the same as in the summer when you could, at least, enjoy the pool. Wi-fi non-existant at our site; only at the office. Cable TV was limited and very fuzzy. Interior roads have ruts and big holes. Sites very unlevel. Their store is the best feature. They have a good variety in case you forgot or something breaks. We stay here only because there is no other place on our route. Will probably try to find something else, somewhere in the future. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice camping facility. All the conveniences of home are here - playground for the kids, and pet friendly! This place is convenient to most everything Birmingham has to offer. I have stayed here many times with my grandchildren. They enjoy the game room and the pool. There is a store offering almost anything you can possibly need.
