This used to be McKinneys RV but is now an RV conversion business and campground. The RV sites are along the east side of the business. The whole place is now rough gravel. Sites are all background but level. Staff is friendly. Water service is good as is sewer. The electric service is "iffy". First time we stayed here we were on the southern end of the line and had some voltage drops. Same this time to the point where the ACs kept tripping. If you come you need to get a site next to the power house, a metal shed near the north end of the line. Call for reservations and then recall the morning of arrival. The business has been cleaned up a lot with old wrecked RVs gone and the warehouse better arranged. Still work to do but making headway. If its hot and you need reliable electric, try another place. - okdiver

We stayed here for a week while having service on our motorhome. It is better than staying at Tiffin's campground: all concrete, no mud or dust! It has water, power and sewer hookups and just recently added WIFI. We stayed in Site 3, some interference from a tree for satellite depending on the wind but I wouldn't give up that tree in the 96-98 degree weather going on. The manager and her staff are very friendly and very accommodating if you need help of any kind. Nice pleasant place to stay for a very fair price. - melmoses

This is one of the overflow campground for Tiffin Service. It is about 10 sites and all on concrete. If you have a dog, the lawn to the rear is ok for walking as is the fenced in yard to let the dogs run a bit. Sites 5,6 7 have trees that block satellite, but the owner said we could pull forward enough to get a signal. There is water, good electric and sewer. Nothing else. But it is not dusty here like the Tiffin campground. Verizon signal is very good. We were in site 4, good sat. reception. Campground is close to downtown. Owners were very nice and friendly. It is a self pay campground, put the money in the envelope and put it in the box. No wifi or cable here, very basic but well kept and good for dogs. Plenty of room to back in. Would stay here again. - wtravlr1

This is a self service park in downtown Red Bay. It was fine and our first time there. The $20 is the going rate for everything around there. Some sites (#4) have access to satellite TV was good. Sites are level on what look like the concrete floor of old buildings that were scraped. Very convenient to downtown area, the Tiffin Plant, and the shops in Red Bay. We would stay there again. - rwarner22

Self service..drop box for cash or check. Close to town and easy access to Tiffin Motorhomes support facilities. Sites are wide and are all gravel with good services at the rear of the parking pads. This is a wide open parking area in a former field about 1 mile west of downtown. This will be our place to stop whenever in Red Bay, as no traffic and little dust. - Teacher's Pet

This is a gravel parking lot with full hookups. Sites are very level with good gravel bases, similar to other Red Bay campgrounds. What differeniates it is the location. It is on the outskirts of Red Bay with plenty of room to walk your dogs. It is very quiet overnight due to its location. However, you cannot safely walk into Red Bay due to the lack of sidewalks along the road. Verizon and Dish connections were fine. The campground is still being expanded, I believe to roughly 20 sites. - Pktva

This is not a campground, but a large unpaved parking lot with full hookups. Sites are narrow mostly pull throughs. You come here just for one reason: to get your Tiffin repaired at extremely reasonable prices. The campground is $20.00 a night for coaches out of warranty. You cannot reserve any sites. Sites in the 80's are toward the rear of the lot where there is more paving, due to proximity to the paint shops. Also less traffic at the back. You are here to get your coach worked on. Seek out experienced people who can show you the ropes, as the system of getting your coach worked on can be a bit confusing. Expect to be here for a few weeks. Ask for an express bay if you coach does not require any large repairs. Also, you can sit with your coach and talk to the techs. Ask them about "after hour services" lots of new awning being put on just off the property. Key here is to talk and ask, other campers, techs etc. They cannot upgrade any coaches here, just do repairs. But if you have a Tiffin this is the place and worth the wait. Not much food choice in the area. Wifi slow. Good Verizon signal for hot spot. Good laundry, also camp store has hard to find Tiffin coach items. You can only stay one day after repairs are finished. There are several private campgrounds in the area for the same $20.00 per night. Some people have to stage there to wait their turn to come into the Tiffin lot. Don't be afraid to go and ask questions, if you don't ask the answer is always no. - wtravlr1

Abandon all hope, all ye enter here. No one wants to be here. It is a place where your very broken coach goes to feel better. It's like going to the hospital. No one wants to be there. You go, eat crappy food, see some things you'd wish you can un-see but can't and leave as soon as you can.
Red Bay, AL is a pretty bad place. It smells like dog food half the time because of the dog food plant. Stray dogs are abundant. If you are unfortunate to need to leave the coach, and happen to have pets, the only local alternative is a VERY CRAPPY motel next door.
This place is where hope goes to die. We will definitely think twice about buying Tiffin again simply because the location is so horrible. - Kamnel

If you are driving a Tiffin Motorhome you must visit Red Bay!! No reservations, no appointments sounds scary but your stay will go quickly. Don't expect to be in and out of the service area quickly. We were told right up front it would be 3 weeks to complete the work we needed to have done. Turned out to be 2 1/2 weeks. The service at the Tiffin Service center is worth the wait, and a very good value. The staff in both the office and the service center were easy to work with. They try hard to communicate with you and let you know when your service will take place. The sites are just in a big , dusty gravel parking lot. Don't expect much but that is not why you are there. The reason the time goes quickly is that the clientele are all there for the same reason. If you want to learn about RVing and your rig this is the place to be. The parts store has all the things you need at very good prices. - The Sandbox

We called ahead for a spot and were told they had a full hookup spot available--the last empty spot. He said it would work fine for our 36 foot motorhome. When we arrived, there was a spot, but it was rough and at least a foot and a half out of level. We had never been anywhere that someone tried to rent us such a Terrible spot. We said we couldn't put our slides out with the coach so far out of level. The person got angry with us. We asked if there were other choices in town and he said everything was full. The closest park, he said, was a state park 50 miles away. We found this to be untrue and on the way out of town discovered two nice spots. - Jfolk

Level sites, FHU, no cable or internet. Great place to stay for short visits in the area. Was quiet and other people staying were friendly. - Kathy and Rich

Gave it a 8 only because it doesn't have all the fancy swimming pools, etc. These are thing we do not use. We are self-contained and never check out showers, laundry, etc. I chose this park because of previous comments and they were spot on. Great sandwiches, and will also be getting a haircut before we leave. Another reason I chose this place was Tiffin would not give me a reservation and I didn’t want to arrive and have to go to the boondock site. I am definitely glad I didn’t. Service was outstanding. Would stay here again - MrMcGoo

One of five RV campgrounds owned by the Bear Creek Development Association in the area between Red Bay, AL and Russellville, AL. Good, paved access roads with reasonable clearance. Some of the sites are not level or paved. Nice views looking out over the lake. Has camp store and a camp manager on-site. Friendly and helpful, but I had a problem with the electric supply going over-voltage, sometimes as high as 135 VAC and tripping my EMS off-line. The camp manager passed the concern on to the main staff, but nothing was done and the problem persisted the entire stay. I eventually had to use my generator to protect from the voltage spikes. 22 of the sites are for seasonal campers, and the rest are on a first-come, first-served basis. You need to call the camp manager the day before and see if there are any spots available. They will know if there are any accommodating sites at the other campgrounds as well. Looks like it is a well kept secret for the local population. - Good Vibes

Other reviews on this site state that this park needed updating. I agree, but they have not been done.
This park is awful. Please don't go with a big rig.
Dirty sites, washed out pads with steep drop offs.
Only good thing is that it is close to the Trace.
Closed restrooms, boarded up.
Never got my receipt. - Shered

The park is right on the Natchez Trace. Most of the sites are beside a small lake. The sites are well spaced and fairly level but many are very short. There were also steep drop-offs around most sites. Only TV reception was PBS from Florence, AL. No garbage cans at sites, just a dumpster as you leave. Lots of good hiking trails. No laundry facilities. - winnie1

Traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway we stopped for one night at this State Park. Lake was low, but the rest of the scenery was beautiful with tall pine trees for shade. The road around the campsite was a little windy but the sites were mostly level - all back ins. Around the lake were lots of bramble type vegetation with huge "sticker burrs" that attached themselves to our Collie and had to be cut out of her coat. FYI for pet owners - judging by the fur around our site, this had happened to other campers. Check out the Pioneer cabin in the park for a look back at history. A great spot - we will be back. - Linsay

We stay here every June to attend my family reunion about 25 miles away. This park is above average for a COE Park, with all sites being paved and 50/30/20 amp electric available. Many sites are level but some can be a challenge to level on. Water front sites are normally booked up every weekend. The showers can we invested with flying gnats and nymphs depending on the time of year of your stay, they are clean, but take note. There is poor Tv and cell service and heavy tree cover, so satellite reception requires a portable dish. - Teacher's Pet

This has been our Campground of Choice in Northeast Mississippi for many years. And it remains so. Have noticed during last 7 years that care of the park has deteriorated some. Still very nice and great workers at the registration station. Noted some plumbing issues in Men's shower near site #31 on last visit and they were not corrected during our seven day stay. Weekends and Holidays are really busy during the summer, so we try to go during week. Will be returning soon for another stay. Just a few miles to north of campground entrance is a corner gas station with restaurant. Recommend the fried chicken tenders. Trying the catfish next time. Name is something about Margaritaville. Used to be Burton One-Stop. - hoganc

Beautiful views of the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway area, which forms a large lake in the immediate vicinity of the campground. You can see the occasional barge go by, and there were a LOT of boaters/fishermen on the lake in addition. Sites were fairly close together, but the view made up for it. Most sites are fairly level. - HercMaster

Yet another of our beautiful COE parks. We only stayed overnight but it was a beautiful site and we will return again. - tommyg

Site was a long, level back-in in the woods, a short walk from the river. Interior roads were asphalt paved and in good condition.
We will probably return for a longer stay when we don't have long range travel plans. - Alworth

We have stayed here before, and decided it would be a nice place to revisit while getting work done in Red Bay for our Tiffin motorhome, and we were not disappointed. The sites are all very spacious, private and treed. We were able to get satellite reception, it took 150 feet of cable on our tailgator. All sites have 50/30 amp reliable service. The water pressure was close to 60 psi, no sewer at sites, but dump station available. The checkin process was daunting, though. The hosts had a laborious time getting the computer to work for her. Seems the program had an old address for us, and we had changed it earlier at a different COE park. Our site was very beautiful over looking the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway. Lots of fun watching the big barges negotiate the narrow waterway. Our only complaint was that our site had a full campfire ring, trash had not been picked up around the site, and the concrete pads were full of leaves and dirt. This park is starting to show lots of wear, many of the supporting timbers are rotten and washed away by unscrupulous campers who dump their waste water. - simonsrf
