8 RV Parks near Shorter, Alabama
Jul 2014 - $35.00
FYI: This park is now closed as the property has been sold to Love's truck stop. However I hear that most of the campground is moving to a new location at Exit 21. Go South 3 miles. This campground already has power and water and sewage will be going in soon. - agcaldwell

We enjoy this park when coming through. Off I-85 just east of Montgomery. Have never needed a reservation. Nice small lake and the Wi-Fi is good. No cableTV, but air reception is good and open enough to get good satellite reception. - agcaldwell

Prior reviews tell it all. One note for prior visitors, the campsite numbers have been changed. For example our wonderful site last year was 27, this year it is 102. TV reception last year was good, this year we only got PBS. Our Verizon phone was marginal, Verizon data service OK. The rate is for Golden Age card. - rncordy

This park is now run by AWA properties and does NOT have any amenities except basic cable TV is provided (no bath house/laundry). We loved it being close to shopping yet woodsy and out of site of traffic. We lived here fulltime for nearly a year. The electric is not metered: included in the rent. There are only 2 pull through sites. Mrs Watson still lives in big house behind park. I'd highly recommend this park for someone working in the Montgomery area. - slawrence

Campground is just off US 231 on the banks of the Tallaposa River, some sites have carport covers tall enough for any RV, but no longer than 30', narrow road down to the park, beware to swing wide on the left turn back up the road on leaving (we scratched our paint on some metal stantions hidden in the weeds), many permanent residents, this campground is nothing fancy, but we have had a pleasant stay both times we have stayed there for a week each time. - AFChap

This park is about 10 miles off I-65, but easy to navigate to as well as easy to get in to. Manager/owner was very nice and escorted us to our site. Very clean park, level gravel space, but accommodated our big rig just fine. Hook ups perfectly spaced. Would definitely stay here again. - Alaska7379

We stayed one night on our way to FL. The owner was friendly and escorted us to our site. The site was long enough for our 35' class A plus towed suv without unhooking. The playground out front was nice. The hookups were well placed and convenient. Very little leveling was needed. I65 was ten miles away but the roads leading to the park were four lane and was more like limited access roads. We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry but was satisfied. I don't know that I would like it for more than a day or two with the close proximity to other rivers, but it's great for an overnight stay. - Tammy7

We stayed here on an overbite stop while passing through Montgomery. I liked this park's location as it avoided Montgomery traffic coming in from the east and heading out to the north. It turned out to be a good choice. Sites are pull-thru, flat, on gravel and with all hookups in excellent condition. Sites are, however, pretty close together. Bathrooms are EXCELLENT: there are 4 private suites with toilet, sink, shower, a chair and shelf. Everything spotless. There is a small pond on the site and a playground - didn't see other amenities. Cable and wifi were very good. - P&R Miami

Lovely setting. Big trees, lots of Spanish Moss. Sites are spacious enough, and most asphalt pads are nice and level. Very quiet. Most sites are large enough for our 37' 5th wheel, but some require you to park your vehicle at a slight angle, to fit in the space. Our space backed up on Lake Coose, which seems to be a popular fishing lake. If we are back in the area, we will definitely stay here again. - Ol JB

We live in Montgomery so Ft. Toulouse is only a 30 minute drive for us and weekend camping there is something we do often. We love the size of the camp ground and the camp sites are large and always clean. I will admit that there are some sites that hold water after a good storm, we have never had a problem. We never get tired of exploring the two forts and walking trails. Everyone there is polite and friendly and we will continue to go there. - MontgomeryAL

Beautiful well-kept Campground. Lots of big shade trees with Spanish moss. Sites are well spaced. Peaceful at night. Host on-duty could not have been nicer. We got there after dark and he came and unlocked the gate for us. Helped us back into a campsite. Some sites available along the river bluff. Very pretty.
Some neat history at the campground. Replica of American and French Fort and an Indian dwelling all within walking distance of the campsites. Nice walk in the fall but would have been very hot looking at the forts in the summertime with no shade. No information posted on the history and not a lot to see. Brochure with a little history available in tiny "museum" which consisted of two display cases, again without labels or information.
Camping areas were great. Kind of fun too walk around at the fort area but would not make it a destination.
We stayed here one night on our way through to Florida and would stay there again. - Darthall

Have to call owner in advance to have utilities unlocked. Never saw owner, only talked on phone, paid by putting check in mailbox. Site #3 can be a little tricky getting out because of tree. - packrat1941

This is a new campground (Aug 2014) w/packed gravel sites beside older patio slabs. Utilities are at rear against the 8' wide pad making a very tight turn into the site. In addition to the RV sites, there is a lot of tenting space. Owners live apx 1/4 mile away and work elsewhere during the day. CALL AHEAD for space & to get utilities unlocked. Owners are very helpful/attentive and have plans to add a bathhouse/laundry and more sites. Right across the road from the head of the Swayback Trail for hiking/biking. - AFChap

This was our third stay in a military base. As is typical, it was tucked in the farthest possible corner of the base. However, if you trust the signs, you will find it. GPS is not helpful. Sites were level, power and water were satisfactory. The only negative aspect was the lack of mowing of the dog walking area. I was wet almost to my knees from morning dew and walking the dog. We stayed her due to mechanical difficulties, and would stay here again. - Sheryl E

No one in camp office on weekends. Park is on the other side of where you have to enter base on the weekend. Nice size lots with easy leveling. Concrete. Ever sction has no trees. - hug448844

Quiet hours at this park are from 10pm-7am. It is now after 11pm and one of my nearby neighbors (a homesteader) has been blasting his stereo inside his motorhome for the past 3 hours. I don't know how the people in the RVs next to him stand it. We're here overnight and our stay cannot end soon enough for me. I hope to get at least a decent night's sleep. No one is around to enforce quiet hours and it's apparent the permanent residents here know that and take advantage of it.
We made reservations yesterday and were assigned a site, #52. When we pulled up to the site, someone was already parked there. They were overnighting too and hoping we would be a no-show. They left and found a different site. As we were hooking up our utilities, we noticed the resident in site #51 next to us had strapped his satellite receiver to the top of the grill on our site. We asked him to remove it and he asked if we were using the grill right then. We insisted he remove it and he came out 15 mins later and grudgingly did it.
The park is full of homesteading residents with all their stuff spread out around their rigs and spilling over to the empty sites (like the satellite receiver I mentioned earlier). There's a definite trailer park feel to this place. Many sites are so close together, you can hear your neighbor yawning (as we did).
The cement pads are nice - long and level. Hookups are in the middle. Water pressure is in the red zone so use pressure regulator. WiFi is non-existent and there's no cable. There's trains passing nearby. And neighbors who play loud music late into the night. I can't wait to leave and never return to this trailer park. - Flippitti

All spaces are pull-thru and FHU so this is big rig paradise. However the sites are uneven gravel and close. The bathroom was really smelly and the shower looked cold and uninviting. The laundry machines worked OK but the building was dirty and there was no folding counter and the machine tops had to be washed before putting clean clothes on them. There was no screen door so it was full of mosquitos. There are a few old wrecks stored on the site taking usable spaces (why?). Truck noise starts nearby early each work day. As others have noted, there is no woods. There is no dog park but ample walking area. The staff is friendly and helpful and the site is convenient in-out and for visiting Montgomery. - MNroadie

We stayed here for one night as we traveled along I-20. Other campers had been evacuated from the Florida Panhandle in front of Hurricane Nate, so the campground was full. In spite of the name (The Woods) this is a flat, rectangular field with regularly spaced campsites. There are no "woods". The staff were wonderful, the utilities were convenient, and the gravel pads were level. The laundry had 3 washers and 3 dryers. The water pressure is very hih (they say it is about 100 psi), so be sure to bring a pressure regulator. - ShoreXplorers

Was easy access from I 65 . Was about one block on right going east. Easy pull thrus and hook ups. There are not many trees so getting Sat. is easy. The people at check in were nice and helped me with a problem with my slide. - wanchar
