We really like this park. We stayed multiple days and plan to return. It is a former KOA that could use some sprucing up, but it's clean and quiet (there are 2 active train tracks within a quarter mile, with crossings that require train horns; we didn't mind it a bit because we are used to train sounds, but some might) with a friendly and helpful staff. Our only complaint is the Wi-Fi. It is not usable unless you sit in or at least very near, the office/store. Management is aware of the issue, but said they did not expect an improvement anytime soon. Also, the cable TV signal is poor. They were working on it while we were here, and it did improve somewhat. Not the park's fault but our Verizon 3G did not work very well here. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is old and somewhat rundown. The site (51) was too short for my unit and dingy. The front of the pad sloped considerable. A tree prevented me for getting satellite service. From the site, about 150 ft from the office I was unable to get internet service. For this rate, $47.00 with tax, there are places which provide more value for the money. They even charged a premium for 50 amp service. It won't be hard to bypass this park the next time we are in the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for a month after the tornadoes came through. I was in one of their "least desirable" sites (their words) and was quite comfortable. (site 32) Roads do have some big pot holes and the pull thoughs in the center are on a slope which makes getting in fun. There is a train track nearby that may disturb some, but I actually liked the sound. Staff was super friendly as were my other campers. Not far from tons of shopping, state parks and the big city. Hope to go back under better circumstances! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground as a one night stay or stop over. It is an old KOA campground that is now a Good Sam park. It is well maintained and has not been up graded over the last decade. The campground location is close to the interstate. The site we had was to have been one where you could stay hooked up. We had to disconnect due to a 6 inch drop in the site (front to back). Other sites did not have this problem. The internet seems to be limited to a fixed number of users. Once you get logged on it works OK. This campground is not a destination. It is good for a stop over or short stay. We would return if passing through the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked this CG and would stay again. Clean, well managed and well maintained but be careful of the large pothole where the access road meets the roads to the sites. Our site #28 had plenty of room for our 40" MH + towed. The satellite worked at this site as well. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for a soccer tournament in Birmingham. I found this park on Good Sams web site. Good stay, personel friendly, and clean bathrooms. Sites clean except for permanent sites which were kind of junky but overall we would stay again for a weekend. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed overnight on the way home. Site 23 is difficult to get in as there are branches that hang low and the turn into the site is difficult. If you decide to use the sewer, have at least 20 feet of hose. If staying at this campground stay in the third row as there are no trees that will touch your RV. Staff is mediocre and points to where your site is rather then taking you to the site or giving better instructions. Many pot holes in road going to camp sites. Be careful as you will rock & roll. Would not stay again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice RV Park, but it is pricey for what you get! We had full hookups with 50 amp. and cable and even with the Good Sam discount it was $43/night. Restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities are all clean. There are pull through sites, back-in sites and all seem to have black top or gravel or grass. Big rigs will do fine in this park. The only negatives are: they need to do some road repair to fill in the big pot holes, and they need to do some extensive tree trimming to keep the limbs from rubbing on the roofs of the RV's or the sides as you are pulling in or out of the sites. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The check in people were polite but not overly friendly; and they were very quick to add extra charges for water, for sewer, for 50 amp, for tax etc. My discounted price of $28 soon rose to nearly $45 for an overnight stay with all these extra charges. The campground itself is nice, but the management runs a clip-joint for snowbirds. I won't stop here again. Get me once, shame on you; but get me twice, shame on me.

Very old park needing upgrades on the sites and the roads. It is not a pretty park. Laundry worked well. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older KOA park so infrastructure shows signs of age. The roads are mostly gravel some treed areas and some open; so satellite access and shade are both available. The grounds are mostly well-kept with the exception of some full timers who have “junked up their sites”. The restrooms and laundry rooms are exceptionally clean. It is very close and convenient to I-65. THE Wi-Fi SERVICE IS TERRIBLE; ERRATIC AND WEAK. They say they are going to fix the Wi-Fi; we’ll see. We have stayed here many times over the last 3 years because it is close to my son’s workplace and home. An alternative is the Hoover Met. Nightly rate includes full hookups, 50 amp and taxes.

Stayed overnight. Was cold. Road maintenance is needed. Tree trimming is needed in area where we were assigned. Staff was friendly and helpful. Store looked clean and had more items available than I would have expected for a non-tourist area. We would stay here again but would probably try another location in the area first.

This is a fairly nice campground with easy access to the interstate. Our site required some leveling and I couldn't get their WiFi to work. Also some of the extended stay sites were looking a little trashy. However my biggest issue was paying $39.00 a night at the Good Sam rate and I wouldn't stay here again for that reason only.

I don't know what happened to the reviewer who entered a complaint about noise from the trains, but we did not experience that problem. We heard a couple of trains but nothing to the extent that he described. I want to give this campground a better chance at being selected as a stop-over. It was easy to get in and out of; has pull-through sites; is quiet and convenient not only to I-65 but also to shops and restaurants in the Pelham area. A 10% discount to KOA, Good Sam. Nice gentleman in the office, very helpful. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived after the office had closed and it was very easy to still get registered. We were however given the smallest tent site and would have rather one of the larger sites and we were the only tent all weekend. The camping kitchen was a nice touch. The bathrooms were spotless!! The pool was nice and we were informed that they would soon be heating it. The campground was very quiet except for the train that goes through several times during the night. It didn't bother me but it did my husband. We would and will stay here again. The lady in the office was very sweet too. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Tent.
