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. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Fifth Wheel.

Note if you are using a Good Sam card for a discount you only get it if you pay cash. We stay here a couple of nights when passing through the area. The long term permanent campers are gone. There were a few contractors, but they keep their sites orderly. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a quaint little park. All but 5 of the 38 sites were large, level, gravel pull through, and 2 were water-front. Of the 5 large back-ins, 4 were water-front. Check in at the gas station then pick your own site. The pet-friendly park was very clean, quiet, and the staff was friendly. It is very much a "Make yourself at home" atmosphere. There are clean bathroom/showers, free laundry, and ridiculously fast WiFi. The hook-ups were conveniently located, and for the first time we didn't have to readjust to dump prior to leaving. Unfortunately our pleasant stay at this perfect park quickly took a turn for the worse upon the arrival of a not-so-neighborly camper. We were parked near the pond in a pull- through with one other narrow pull-through between us and the pond. There were only a couple of campers in the park with us, leaving 34 open sites including 3 water-front sites (not including the one next to ours). Just after we finished setting up our 40' fifth-wheel, some jerk in a 25' pull-behind took the site next to ours. So on the East we had a view of 33 vacant sites, and on the West I had a close-up view of the side of his trailer (he parked so close I could touch his trailer from the corner of our slide). Then he drove off in his truck until after 4:30 the next morning, not even taking the time to enjoy the view he took from us. He could have easily backed into a smaller site with an equally good view, and respected us in the big rig who needed the long pull-through. I haven't let this idiot affect my opinion of the park, but keep this in mind when given the chance to pick your own site. Be respectful and camp neighborly. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Fifth Wheel.

It was a great spot for an overnight. Nothing really special in terms of extras but a nice stop over. There are a lot of permanent campers here and one that had a spare engine sitting under t.e camper. I'd stay again but only if I was to tired to go further We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Travel Trailer.

A very pleasant surprise. This little park is very clean, has a free laundry and is all pull through next to a pond. Lucked out and got the site that's above the main area and by itself - effectively one hundred feet wide. On this site with cable & Wi-Fi the rating would be 10+, but there's no cable or Wi-Fi. Best over night stop behind a gas station I can imagine. Word of warning - both my Garmin GPS and Steets &Trips map said exit the interstate, turn left and go 1/2 mile. Wrong. Off the exit, turn right, go 100' and pull into the gas station to register. The park is behind it. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Fifth Wheel.

As a place for an overnight stop, Windrift has a lot of advantages. You register at the gas station/beer store before entering the campground, and pick your own site. All are pull-throughs and easily accessible. We didn't use the laundry but it was clean and free of charge. Ditto for the showers. Next to the gas station (walking distance from any campsite) is a BBQ stand that sells good food, inexpensively. Unless you were here for greyhound racing, there wouldn't seem to be much reason to stay here more than a night, two at the most if you were very tired. The place is not fancy, but well-kept, easy access to and from the Interstate, and inexpensive. Beats the Wally World parking lot hands-down. We camped at Wind Drift Travel Park (Now c in a Travel Trailer.
