9 Parks near Samson, Alabama
Mar 2014 - $15.00
Passport America rate. We stayed five nights. Staff friendly, live on site. Laundry OK. Not the most spic-and-span modern facilities but we liked this place for total peace and quiet. Easy access and nice walking. Sites grassy but with hard surface. Cement patios. Wi-Fi excellent (we were parked near rec room). We would definitely stay here again. - rvbravo2

This place was not clean and very noisy. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and this place was anything but. Owners were rude and unfriendly. - Ron and Amy

The owners have done an excellent job of cleaning up after the previous owners. Both are the kindest, most helpful and gracious owners we have encountered. Everyone is very friendly. The grounds are landscaped nicely and well kept. There are a number of long timers who are also helpful. They have added a club house for get together. Two docks available for fishing. Landing is available with a recommended $2 launching fee. The lake only allows electric motors - no gasoline. The campgrounds are literally out in the country closer to Geneva, AL than Defuniak Springs, FL. - MOexpat

Excellent little campground! Most sites have at minimum a large deck, and some even have large protected decks including full roof over the deck and camper/RV. Full hookups available, although check the length of your wires/hoses as they can be an extra 5-15 feet away compared to other campgrounds we have stayed. Work is still being done on the campground and it looks like they may be expanding. Currently they are redoing much of the electrical but we never experienced any outages or spikes. It appears that dish network TV is available, but I am not sure about wireless, phone or modem hookups. The owners/hosts are great people, VERY kind, helpful and go above and beyond. Boat ramp close by and there is a recommended $2 boat launch fee which is definitely well worth the graciousness they provide. Excellent fishing most of the year although this year has been tough with the extended and colder than usual winter. - MikeKai

I gave a satisfactory rating because the park is in transition from state to city and there are some maintenance issues because of it. State has pulled out the laundry facilities and slacked off on maintenance. Lake side sites were $35 while across the road were $28. All sites have water & electric, level and tree lined. Our B was the smallest camper there, about 4 other sites had 5'ers, all other sites were empty. 28 total sites. We had a beautiful lakefront site. Hope this park doesn't fall into disrepair. - garmp

Great State Park on Lake Jackson. Awesome views, great lake for kayaking. Sites are dirt and gravel, somewhat level, lots of trees and moss. Bath house nice and clean. Sites are close with a few pull-thru. Stayed in a 40 ft Motor Home. Will stay again. - gleLOAL

Friendly staff. Most sites are back-in. Beautiful setting with views of the lake from all sites.
Cable was fuzzy. Satellite depends on site due to the trees.
The sewer on my site was backed-up and unusable. - jnateg

Sites are mostly with beautiful lake view. Sites Reasonably sized and well spaced. Grounds well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. Cable TV is great with numerous channels. Smaller park that we enjoy immensely. During October 2015 stay friends of the park put on a great scarecrow display along the walking/hiking trails. - sp123

This is a very nice park. We are in space 29, which is a very wide and long gravel pad. We are in a 41' motorhome with slides on both sides, and we have plenty of room to accommodate our exercise pens that we use for our pups. The park has WiFi, but it is slow, and the signal is weak. We have a strong WiFi booster, but even with a good signal, pages load slowly, but they do load. The park also has excellent cable, with over 100 channels, which is something you don't usually see in a state park. The town of Opp is rather small, and has a few fast food restaurants, and only one grocery store.
We are staying here only one night this trip in route to our next destination. We will most definitely stay here again, and will likely spend more time here the next time we come through. - Mike Hopkins

The park is a beautiful park and well maintained. The Wi-Fi was excellent and cable was more than adequate. At the entry station the ranger was most helpful. We were very impressed with a state park having all of benefits that this park has. The only bad thing was, that we were invaded by tiny black ants. - morrison

Great staff, poor Wifi, and friendly campers even with lots of seasonal campers. We pulled in with a slow leak on a truck tire. They pumped in enough air to get me the 8 and 1/2 miles into town and called to tell them I was coming. Found more damage than a slow leak so we put on two new rears which we were planning to do this in winter. We stayed 2 nights and they even sent someone to our sight the first night to see if we were okay and to let them know if we needed any more assistance. We will stop here again. - Mr. Camper

We enjoy this Rv resort for holiday and long weekend getaways. The owners have created a nice campground with lots of amenities.
Sites are grassed with concrete patio slabs, well maintained.
We have a 32' motorhome and have never had a problem. We have always gotten a 50 amp pull through.
Clean pool, exercise room, friendly staff and volunteers. Live entertainment on Saturday nights which was great for a local place, talent surprised us.
The full timers and those that reside in cottages Keep their places well maintained.
This weekend they had a bbq and Memorial Day ceremony.
Great place to overnight or stay a week. Our grandkids love the pool, playground and fishing dock.
Paved roads and escort to your site. Free wifi and cable. Full hook up. - Gatorgrammie

We stayed one night in a pull thru. The level, grass site was very close to our neighbor on the hookup side, but we had lots of room on the patio side. It's a beautiful park, and we'd like to comeback when we have more time. - mrpeepers

Pulled off the highway looking for an overnight stay. Found this park way out in the country. Beautiful setting with super friendly staff. Great diving area available along with swimming and recreation. Great, off the beat spot for family vacationing at a reasonable price. A,lot of people staying there, but surprisingly quite at night. If I ever traveled through this area again, I would not hesitate to stop. - Jeff MacDonald

Very primitive, much sand, roads were in disrepair, sites poorly marked. It took us 50 minutes just to get checked in, staff was new and not very professional. This is an excellent Dive site, great swimming area, kind of small. We left a day earlier than we were supposed to. Hopefully they will bring this park up to standards soon. - jericbarg

Yuk. Sites were awful. Electric boxes falling apart. Only saving grace was the swimming area. A cool spring. I would recommend staying somewhere else and day visiting because this campground is terrible. - skycop
Dec 2015 - $15.00
Very friendly staff, only a couple of nightly sites so calling would be smart to ensure a spot. I only saw 2 drive through sites and mine was long but this campground would be a better fit for smaller units, maybe less than 38 ft. Quiet setting and extremely well kept right on the lake. No sewer hook ups but they did have a dump station. Many long term rigs but it was neat and clean and well run. We will try to return and stay longer. Only a couple of easy driving miles off the freeway. - weighit

See June 2012 review for more info. This CG is no 10, but is a very good value with Passport America. We paid $12 plus $1.50 for cable (a pretty good lineup appx. 65 stations) and tax so it was $29 for 2 nights. The Wi-Fi was very good. The area is not the best and the town like many others does not offer much. The CG itself has lots of old dated trailers, but we had no problems. Everyone pretty much keeps to themselves here. There are two sites that have side but side hookups and no sewer. The one facing the pond is not bad. We were in the other and very close to the sites on either side. These are the pull through sites and the largest. Not very big rig friendly so I would not recommend it for anything over 38'. We would stop again if passing thru the area. Overall a solid value with PA and a not a bad place for a night or two. - Bob and Inga

Rate paid was with Passport America. Very nice little park with the friendliest owners that we have every met. Mostly permanent residents in the park with only four overnight spots. Very clean restrooms and showers. Laundry was very reasonable. Loved the park and would stay there again. - rlyons

Great little overnight spot if you are in the area. They have a few big rig friendly sites and you do. To have to unhook your car. Owner has you call when you get off the freeway and she gives directions and mets you outside the campground. Then takes you to your spot and ensures you get level. Right on lake and you can sit on deck and enjoy the water. - Buspuppies

Clean level gravel sites. Well spaced on gentle slope to lake. 30/50 amp service. Very quiet and private. The proprietor is very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. - User3471

We pulled in for only one evening but the view, friendliness as well as peacefulness of the park kept us another day. A piece of Old Florida. A lovely deck on the water with tables and chairs to sit an enjoy the lake. - Dave's Wife
May 2016 - $38.00
Very nice gated park on 2 lakes with small pool and a store. Gravel roads with wide level concrete pads. New bathrooms and laundry. Main activity is fishing. We were disappointed that there were no boat rentals as we had been promised. Had problem with barking dogs that were left tied outside all day. Owners were contacted but took all day to return and were allowed to stay. Would be better if rules were handed out at check-in rather than "upon request" to avoid this issue. Sites are very close and can be back-in or pull-in (for the lake view) which means you may be nose-to-nose with your neighbor. - IntrepidCampers

As the previous reviewer stated this place is being totally renovated. We had a beautiful site directly on the water. At his time there are about 17 site with more opening soon. It is about 10 miles from Rt10. - Fluffy 41

We stayed at Twin Lakes for a couple of days. The park is currently under renovation, and once it is done, it will be a wonderful place to be. Right on the lake shore, quiet and tranquil. The concrete pads are wide and level, with all new electric, water, and sewer system in place. Club house and pool is done, but the toilet and shower facilities are not yet finished. - Jensvilhelm
