This campground is on Hospital Rd. just around the corner from the Tiffin Service Center and is part of Bunkhouse RV Repair, formerly McKinney RV. The 20 sites are all back-in, gravel with the hookups located at the rear of the site, very convenient for Class A Tiffin motorhomes, but not for other types of RV's. Surface is gravel with no shade. Visually this campground is a dump but the price is right, and you would only stay there to have work done on your Tiffin motorhome. Check in is at Bunkhouse RV Repair office. - lllkrob

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

Like everyone who goes to Red Bay, we were there for service on our Tiffin motorhome. It was our first time there. Quite an interesting experience.
First 2 nights we stayed at a different place in town, but it was such a junkyard that we moved to Downtown RV Park when a site came open. No comparison. Downtown was by far the better place. It's very small, so you get to know your neighbors if you're there for a while. It's basically a parking lot, but there is plenty of room for your coach and toad. The Wi-Fi worked best at the sites closest to the nearby house, which is a rental property owned by the same couple who own the RV park.
One of the best things about Downtown RV Park is that it is off the main street. Other parks are on the main street (a highway, really) that runs through town and carries all the traffic that is going to the Tiffin service center. Another plus is that its paved. Other parks are gravel and very dusty. The Tiffin park is huge, crazy busy, and very noisy.
We will definitely stay at Downtown RV Park when we return to Red Bay for service on our motorhome. - MelBtraveln

Finding a place to stay in Red Bay while awaiting service on a Tiffin Motorhome can be problematic. The Downtown RV Park is a good place to stay. One can make reservation. The price of $20 a night is OK, and there is a weekly price of $100. The Park is reasonably clean, and one does not encounter the dust as in the Tiffin RV Park by the Tiffin repair facility. We will certainly stay here again when er return to Red Bay for service on our motorcoach. - hoppytoad

When the Tiffin Service Center campground is full, there are 3 or 4 other campgrounds to handle the overflow. We arrived during a real crush, and there was a frantic scramble to find a place for everyone to stay. We ended up at the Downtown RV park. The surface is a mix of asphalt and crumbled concrete - uneven in places but sufficient for leveling.
Full hookups were great, and the young lady who collected the money was lovely. Lots of trees there, so the satellite did not work.
The good news was that the service scheduler came to see us in the morning, and assigned us to the Express Service since our list of problems was short. He estimated that we'd move to the Tiffin campground in another day or two, and that our service would occur in 3-4 business days. This was at 10 AM on our first morning in Red Bay. By noon that day, a team of Tiffin techs in a mobile service van was at our site! Our problems were fixed in 2 hours, and we were checked out and on the road by 2PM! Kudos to Tiffin! This was certainly a record for us! In, fixed, and out in 24 hours!!!! - MerBee

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

Good utilities, plenty of room, open for satellite, Verizon data. Worked well for us. - camprats

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

You can only stay here if you are having Tiffin service. Basically a large parking lot/waiting area for service. The customer lounge, laundry, and bathrooms were very nice and clean. Get a spot at the end of the run and along the back if you can - Rigs going in and out can be noisy. Not really much outdoor space. - Wigglelock

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

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

This is an amazing COE park. Many of the sites are on the water. There are large pull-thru and back-in sites. Sites are well designed and very spacious. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed at and hated to leave after staying three days. During the off season you can select any site that is open and there are a large number of excellent sites. - Al R

We arrived during a Fall weekday and were told to go pick a spot and return to register. I always love that. (Reservation season had ended.) The park was 90% open. We found one we liked on a loop that no one else was on. Let the dog off lease. The pad was side-to-side level. There was a nice round concrete pedestal table to put our portable grill on. Also there was a lamp stand with hooks, as well as a fire pit. The patio was lined with timbers and filled with limestone gravel. Very clean. We had adequate Verizon coverage. Only TV reception was Alabama Public TV which had a very clear signal. Loved the lake view. We stayed two nights and wanted to stay longer but had to go. We will go back. - Tidy Boy

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

We've stayed here before and enjoyed it, as always. There are only a couple of pull-throughs that our 45 ft bus will fit in -site 42 was perfect for us, and incredibly, the satellite worked!
Folks are nice here, and Fulton is a nice little town. a great place to stop for a day or three! - MerBee

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
