Very noisy with highways on both sides, and trains running all night. Verizon worked well and Satellite wouldn't have been a problem. They do have pretty good cable TV. We just stayed one night and probably wouldn't stop again. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty much nothing here but a place to park. Most are full time. Good water and elect. The problem is that is has been raining and I was all most getting out. The roads are so bad with holes we almost tipped over on the way out. Price was good but will never stay again. you better call ahead if you want to stay because they only have about 2 open sites. If it is raining stay away. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our 2nd stay. There had been quite a bit of rain this stay & the only site available had the water connection 6 inches under water and a lot of mud/water in & around the site. Appeared to be mostly seasonal campers. Would not recommend after a rain. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

No frills. A spot to park with cable and Wi-Fi. Not bad for a one night stop but would not recommend for any longer. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Called ahead and the owner told me how to register on the "honor system." Still, finding a site was a little confusing since there are two sections. We were only staying overnight so picked the top section next to the office and road. The park was almost full and it seemed there were mostly longer term campers. Easy hookup and quiet. Well, except for the trains which weren't that often. Road noise was less than expected. A good quick in and out spot for us. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

First trip in first RV. Passing through on the way to Atlanta. We called to reserve a spot and got voice mail. Received a call back, got our reservation. Set up at dusk, no one at the office. Grabbed a payment form and envelope and dropped the payment in the drop slot. Never saw anyone at all. Full hookups and relatively quiet place for an overnight stop, nothing to complain about. Quite a lot of 'permanent' residents in the park. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a parking lot right off I-20 with full hookups, good Wi-Fi, on a small lake. Payment is by the honor system, as the office is seldom manned. It appears to be mostly residential, old and often rusting trailers; we were the only Class A. It was good for a quick overnight as there is very little available on I-20 from Birmingham all the way to Atlanta, GA. That said, it was a somewhat scary experience. We locked up our RV at night and did not put anything out. With very little effort, this could become a nice place. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Truly was a safe harbor for us as we couldn't get in another park we were reserved for. Owner was very helpful on phone to assure us we would have no problem finding the park or a site exactly as we needed. Parked on a lake, great view, 90' pull through so level we didn't have to unhook, honor system to pay (put $ in envelope), restful; which is what we needed. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A simple gravel-and-grass parking lot just off a county road. OK for a quick overnight, as others have said. Not lovely in any sense of the word. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for an overnighter. Nice staff that got us in an easy in and out pull through spot for the night. Hookups needed some attention, cable TV was great and so was the Wi-Fi. Lot of full timers, and it's not a garden spot, but it was safe and convenient for an overnight. Would stay again. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of noise from the road behind us and the trains at night. Sites are really close together and tilt down for drainage. OK for an overnight. Manager very nice, but wouldn't stay longer than overnight. Would have rated higher but getting out with a big rig is a problem due to the way the drive meets the highway. Definitely need to fix that. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent two weeks at this park with a space that looked right out over the lake. The rate for one week was $110 (inclusive). On the other side of the lake was Hwy. 20, but the noise of traffic was barely audible. The spaces are narrow, but adequate and the grassy areas are all clean and well-maintained. When we called to make a reservation, we were warmly welcomed by a very friendly man. The office is not staffed for much of the day, but the phone was always answered promptly. The only reason that we didn't rate this park higher is the condition of the entrances from the main road and the main access road within the park. The asphalt approaches from the main road are steep and broken up with large potholes and jagged edges. This was not only a problem when bringing our Big Horn in and out, it was also annoying just driving in and out with our pick-up truck. Despite the problems with the entrances, we would happily stay here again and would recommend this park to our friends. We hope that they will be able to get this fixed before our next stay in AL.

Great place for overnight: $20 for full hook-up! No bathrooms, etc. On a small lake. Some mild road noise. Level gravel sites, pull-through was long enough for our rig (62'). Honor system: put money in envelope and drop in the slot. Would definitely stay here again for overnight. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a bare bones campground. It has two areas, long term back off the road and short term right off the road. The 50amp and 30amp shore power is good. Sewer is good but a bit slow; water is about 40 @ psi. There is no Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone signal is good. The Sprint & Verizon Air Cards have a good signal. Cable TV is available. The sites are packed gravel about 70ft long and level both ways. They are wide enough for trailer & slides with about 10ft of grass between sites, enough to put out the awning. Interior road is gravel and the campground is right off the highway. The campground has an area for long term tenants and overnight travelers. Directv satellite is not blocked by trees or other objects. There are no discounts. Payment is $20 cash or credit card. The shore power box is very low to the ground. The water faucet is in a box underground. The Sewer pipe is about 4 inches above ground and was partly broken. This is not a bad campground, but it is mainly ran for long term campers. It is along the banks of a nice lake. There are not a lot of campgrounds in this area, and this one is OK to stay for a few day. If the owner would take the time to improve this campground it could be very nice. I would stay here again. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you must make an overnight stop in this area, this park is relatively quiet and inexpensive. Easy in and out with a great lake view! The utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. Looks a little run down and lacks security, but we didn't have any problems. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.
