7 Parks near Rogersville, Alabama
Apr 2016 - $29.00
Overall it was a nice stay. My family usually go down to Joe Wheeler a few times a year just for weekend get away's. Park was same as usually nice roads and fairly level sites. Only problem we had this time was site C-17, it has a tree that is really close to the pad and it prevents you from having your awning out and with a camper 32ft or longer you can't get backed up far enough to prevent this. I voiced my displeasure with having to move to one of the camp host and to the front desk so maybe they can take this tree down so this site can be used by all campers. I am aware that the state is under a money crunch in the state park area but there are things that need to be updated. Such as electrical supplies. The one on the site that we moved to was just worn badly and caused a loose connection on my power supply that caused it to overheat the plug, sewage drains need to be updated or at least cleaned out around them so it wouldn't be so hard to get connected. I know this seems like a bad review but its really not. All in all it was a good trip as usually but could be improved. - ctcbama

Approx 115 sites, most of them full hook up. A few sites are short, but most will accommodate larger rigs. The sites are fairly level, some with an overall slight slope front to back. There are only 4-5 sites on the C loop close to the water (150 ft.), the rest in the woods. Some on the B loop are on a ridge and have a very nice view of the river through the pines. Most of the campground is wooded with tall pines and a few hardwoods. Satellite reception is spotty because of the fairly heavy canopy. All utilities worked well and the roads are good. Good spacing between sites, but not quite as wide as a typical COE park. Most sites are 30 amp, there are a handfull of 50 amp sites on the A loop. Reservations for this CG are non-site specific at this time, however, there are plans to publish site lengths and pictures of each site on the website, and also allow site specific reservations by the summer of 2016. Bathrooms were clean and heated. There is excellent free WiFi in the park - coverage was complete, however, for some reason I was not able to connect to it. Verizon coverage here is 2/5. The kid's playground is physically separated from the camping area - something I think folks with younger kids would not be comfortable with. Joe Wheeler park is a large venue with a hotel, cabins, golf course, restaurant, swimming area, boating and an extensive day use area (basketball court, volley ball, etc). The day use area is separated from the main camping area. Many trails in the park. - Bama Camper

Asphalt roads and site pads are in good shape. Mostly shady. Large fishing lake, good swimming area, restaurant in lodge. Water, sewer, and electric are in great shape. No cable service and Wifi is very iffy. The golf course is wonderful, played 18 holes for &25 with cart (price if yous stay there, normally $35. Sites are level and neat. There is a concrete table and fire pit at each site. I will go back to this campground. - Alabama Jim
Mar 2015 - $11.00
Rate reflects senior discount. 16.00 regular rate. W/E/S. Wonderful little 'out of the way' park with access to the old music scene in Muscle Shoals and part of the Natchez Trace. Visited on the way to Huntsville. Very nice and helpful host with newly finished gravel sites. Some TV reception and WiFi worked very well. Found a new little gem ! - SailorGolf

This campground is a little more expensive than most in the area but it is the perfect example of what camping is all about. Almost all of the sites are on the lake or within a few steps of the lake. It is clean, quiet and, best of all, the sites are very large and shady. Our site was a back-in with a multi-level patio that stepped right down to the water. It was a great spot for fishing right from the patio. The campground only has a few sites with sewer hookups because of TVA environmental restrictions by the lake. They do have an easy to access dump station. The restrooms were clean and easy to use. The boat ramp was large enough for most small craft fishing boats. There is no pool but the beach was clean and a good place to swim. The park is well laid out with many large shade trees. There is no cable or Wi-Fi at each site. With the beautiful lake, the fishing, and the abundant wildlife that rambles through the park we didn't miss the TV or Wi-Fi at all. If you're looking to spend a few days at a clean quiet campsite on a lake I highly recommend this KOA. - Freelander1

This is our 2nd time here and it is very quiet. Have to drive 7-1/2 miles west and north through Elkmont, but if you want quiet, this is the place. Owners very nice. The reason I rated it 7 was because of the distance from I-65. - ob's place
Apr 2013 - $16.00
Nice long and spacious sites with good electricity and water pressure. Parks Wi-Fi fair. No television reception or AT&T phone cell service. Verizon cell phone service spotty. Quiet country setting good for night or two. Owners on premise and very helpful. Located right on nice walking/bike trail. We would return at Passport America rate. - PappaDee
Jul 2012 - $17.00
Rate reflects Passport America discount. The park is located in a quaint, rural community with a wonderful biking trail adjacent to the park. This is a rather farm style setting which can be appealing but there aren't a lot of amenities. The sites are long and wide; however, there is a slight slope to the front of our site. The hookups were excellent. Wi-Fi is OK. There are several trees in the park, but none tall enough yet to produce significant shade. There are 5-6 long term residents, but their sites are very clean. There is a little creek on the property which would provide some entertainment, but it is low at this time due to a drought. Although this isn't a destination spot, we would stay again. For local RVers, it could provide a nice, quiet weekend in a rural setting. - User2396

This is an adequate place for a night on the way to somewhere else. Pros: level, easy in and out, utilities worked well and were in the right place, WIFI worked fairly well with my signal amplifier, but was a little slow, wide open for satellite TV connection, no rules. Cons: If it hasn't rained it is VERY dusty; had to crawl on the ground to see if the electric breaker was on or off and to hook up electric cord; cash or check only (openly prefers cash) - no credit cards; do not honor any discount cards; owner is a bit cranky; no map; no rules; no site numbers; no picnic table. - ramblin' vagabonds

Located at the end of exit ramp 354, the Northgate RV Travel Park is a no-frills (except WiFi...more on that later) overnight or short stay park. All sites are FHU pull-thru at least 100' long. Pedestals have both 30 and 50-amp (didn't look for 20-amp) but are pretty low to the ground. Excellent water pressure (owner said 70-psi but I measure 60-psi); pressure regulators recommended. No RV shade to speak of but there are some trees and bushes. Park is well kept, clean and very quiet. The only 'extra' is WiFi which has a strong signal throughout the park but uses WEP security which is very easy to hack so we used our Verizon hot spot (5-bars inside the park). All sites are $30 per night, cash is preferred but checks are accepted. Owner is very friendly and helpful but if you arrive before or after the small office is closed be sure you self-register and pay before choosing a site and setting up else you risk a late night or early morning knock on the door. This is a very nice park for overnights or short stays. It's sits adjacent to a farmer's field. We've been here twice now and will definitely stay here again. We gave it a '10' rating and while it has no pool, clubhouse, store, hayrides, showers, laundry, etc...it's near-perfect in our eyes. Just upgrade the Wifi security to at least WPA and it would be perfect! - rk911

We read the reviews on RVPR and thought this would be a good stop on our way North. We were very surprised when we arrived. The sites are paved and have full hookups, so that is good. Some are under tall pines, others are not, but don't offer any privacy but will block satellites. We opted for one not under the trees and selected a back in closest to the river, one of two available. The pad is fairly wide, but there is a concrete picnic table on it, we were pretty close to the edge of the pad and we couldn't walk between the table and the slide.
When we were setting up a neighbor let us know that we should make sure our bicycles on the back of our RV were locked up, since people going to the fishing pier drive behind us at all hours. We had to be careful our bikes didn't stick out in the road, but we didn't have any problems with anyone messing with them.
The road in the campground is narrow and a little bumpy. The lots at the back seemed smaller, there were several where we wouldn't be able to park our truck, but I think our 5er would fit in most of them.
My husband is a senior and we paid $25/night, the sign said $20/night for seniors. He questioned the lady checking us in and she said we were getting the senior rate. For various reasons, we decided to leave a day early. We were told that we wouldn't get our money back, and that was fine. Our neighbors wanted the site for his father-in-law and offered to pay for the night we already paid for. They come here often and when he paid us he gave us $20. I have the feeling we were taken by the nice lady in the office.
The location is great, very convenient to historic Florence and it restaurants. Drive a bit further and there are numerous big box stores and chain restaurants. - Uno Mas

Park does not accept reservations but when I called the office the woman said call back just before you get here. We decided to drive to the park anyway and found a site one row off the water. Was interesting watching the barges up and down the river, lots to see and do in the area. Park was clean, sites were not at all close as in previous review, been to others with less space. Reason I did not give this park an excellent review was for the no reservations and the water/sewer connections were a stretch. - Colette

This was our second visit to this campground. It is a city/county owned campground on the banks of the Tennessee River. It is part of a park which has a marina & boat ramp as well as a small beach area. The campground has pull-through and backin sites. There are no reservations but is first-come availability. We had no problems in our 43 ft. Motorhome and will return when in the area. - John & Bobbie
May 2016 - $29.00
Nice club house with TV and pool table. All night access and full kitchen. Friendly and laid back service, drop box payment after hours. Pull thru sites with small concrete pad. Sites were well spaces but a bit odd layout. Right off busy road but the noise was not disruptive. Good for a peaceful nights rest. Very easy to get to off Route 65. - Jeannie and Eddy
Jul 2015 - $23.00
Several full hook up sites with 50amp, water, sewer located on front side of park. Mobile homes are on back side. Quiet and level sites. Some have better concrete pads than others. Good laundry room. Very large underground storm shelter is on site. Good Verizon/ATT cell service. Clear line of sight for Sat TV and local channels are clear. Not much around the park, but easy drive to Athens or Decatur. Price based on weekly basis. - Gpndavid

We arrived after 11:00 pm looking for a place to stay for the night. The park is simple to find off the highway (I-65), their signage is very good. There was a well lit check-in spot explaining the costs, late check-in process and what spots are available for overnight. Payment is honor system after hours, placing payment in a locked box at their office. They have a nice map of the park but the numbers weren't all there so we weren't sure where some of the spots were, and being so late we wanted to be as less disruptive to the other campers as possible. We ended up in the open end spot, which was tough to get into with a 36' motorhome towing a car, but we managed. There was a concrete pad that was quite level. Sewer and water were on the correct side, power was on the other side but reachable with our standard cord.
Being that we were on the end spot as you enter the park we heard every car that came into the mobile home park (it's all one huge property) which was surprisingly consistent all night long. The park is also right on US-31 which is also very busy.
The after hours check-in sheets gave the codes for laundry and showers, but we did not look at either so I cannot comment. The overall property appeared clean and well kept so I'd assume they are nice and clean as well.
This park met our needs perfectly. We arrived very late, had full hookups on a level pad, and left early. We would use them again for a stopover if needed, but not somewhere we'd stay for an extended time. - OnDaRox
