Beware! Although the website says, "Reservations require a non-refundable deposit of $30," do not expect a refund of any payments made beyond that $30. Their actual policy is, "No refunds are given for any reason." Typical procedure for every other campground we've dealt with is that the deposit is non-refundable, but the additional amount is; never have I heard of a policy where the entire amount is non-refundable. The best they would offer is an "indefinite credit" which is beyond their typical 60-day credit rule. I'm not sure who makes this policy, but they would be best served to be more in-line with the rest of the camping industry.

The sites are standard sites, nothing special. This park is named "Blakeley State Park" but it is not actually a state park. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very rustic with very roomy well spaced sites. There was hardly anybody here. We have a 44' and had trouble finding a flat enough site that was long enough. Most of the sites are not flat-so if you have a long rig scout it out first. Also, most sites are tree covered so you have to be careful of scratching in a larger rig. Some of the utility placements are odd in relation to where you might park. We used all of our 30' sewer hose. We are self contained and did not need the bathrooms/showers but checked them out and they were filthy. We mentioned this to the staff and they said they are cleaned once a week. Considering how few people were there and the condition we saw it is doubtful that is true. The bathhouse is a long way from the RV area (it is closer to the tents) so take that into consideration if you need the bathhouse. ATT cell service was so-so. Verizon hotspot worked well. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Two grocery stores within easy drive. Daphne is nearby with the usual restaurants and box stores. Easy access to Mobile and the USS Alabama. The hiking trails are nice.

Contrary to the listing, it can accommodate up to 45' big rigs on some sites; the smallest site will fit a 30' rig. The RV sites have been updated recently and are all gravel. Most are level. It's a beautiful rustic setting by a river, NOT a resort. It draws a few fulltimers but park policy is to limit the number of these so that there are spaces for recreational campers readily available. Very helpful staff. Feels very secluded, but only 5 miles from major shopping areas. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.

An underdeveloped state park campground. Wooded, hilly, with dirt/gravel road, with widely separated semicircular pull-through sites that conform to the sloping terrain, i.e., uneven, needing leveling. They did have water/sewer/electric by the site. Did not see a bathhouse. There was a historic battle here with an old town site a mile away. Not much to see. At $30 overpriced. Strictly an expensive overnight stop. There is a Meaher Alabama state park south about 7 miles that is much superior, that I didn't know of. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.

We did not stay here, but drove through on Labor day weekend. The CG is very "unimproved." The roads are gravel, steep and washed out, and while there is full hook ups, it looks like someone went through with a dozer, cleared off some semi circle areas and put in full hook ups. This could be a jem if they ever go through and level out the sites, asphalt the roads and RV sites and asphalt the historic park. To us it looks like it is run on the bare minimum of dollars, such a shame. That said, if you have a smaller rig, say under 28 foot, do not mind being unlevel but like the place to yourself, you may love this park! We went through on Labor Day weekend and saw maybe 2 or 3 units. I would not recommend this as a big rig campground even though some of the pull throughs are huge. The turns are tight and you have trees to contend with as well. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has a new RV campground area (Apalachee Campground), this is what I am reviewing. The sites are very big and have full hookups. They are quite private and wooded. As of the time of this writing, I would Not bring a large RV here unless you are pulling with a 4 wheel drive. The road is newer, but not paved in the campground. It is already eroding away, some sites are not accessible due to this. I was very uncomfortable driving through it due to the road condition. It is very rustic, a beautiful park as a whole. The bathhouse is not near the RV park, but way down the road near the tent camping. The roads need to be paved badly. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a waste of money, Could be a Beautiful park. Hookups were difficult to get too . We are only 44 feet with Motorhome and Car and could only find 2 places where we would fit. Bottomed the Camper out going in and again when Leaving. Had no cell service at this park. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.

Very rustic. The roads are gravel and a bit rough. The sites are gravel and unlevel. It is like camping in a national forest but with full hook ups. There are no restroom/bath facilities. The park is VERY quiet. There was only two other campers there during our visit. We will stay elsewhere next time. A bit too rustic for us. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park could be good if they finished it, and knew how to set up a site. THe sites are long enough for a 40 footer, but the cuts getting in and out are impossible to make without backing up several times to miss the power pedestals that are very poorly placed. Grass around the sites were not trimmed, and only added to the already bad insect problem. Our traveling companions had to move a lot of cut branches that blocked their site - they could not get in without doing so. I attempted to dump, and the system backed up and blew my hose 3 feet up in the air - never seen that one before - after sneaking up and cracking the valve slowly, I could dump, but never with the valves wide open. It's a shame that this park is in the condition that it is in - appears to be reasonably new, but it has never really been finished. We stayed one night, and in our travels found Meher State aprk 5 miles down the road - night and day difference. For the price and condition, we felt this park was not worth another visit. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.
