This park has a nice layout with a beautiful view of Mobile bay. Sunsets are impressive. Very convenient to shopping, fishing and area attractions. Nice paved interior roads. The sites are huge and with paved pads and patios. I don't know why but the overall condition was poor. It looks as if there has been zero maintenance for some time. Pine cones and straw was everywhere and the grass needs cutting. The showers were awful. Dirty floors and walls and a moldy curtains. This place has great potential but need lots of help. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Paved interior roads and sites, which are fairly level. High water pressure, quality good. No problems with power or WiFi, a few over the air TV channels. Some road noise but not excessive. Beautiful vista, right on the river. The biggest problem is the sewer hookups. They are installed too high, making it very difficult to drain tanks. Before leaving, it was necessary to reposition my rig as close to the drain as possible to empty. I saw several others doing the same thing. There is no dump station on site. Because of this drawback, I am not sure I would use this park in the future. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. Huge lots with 50 feet of grassed space between and behind each lot. Safe, secure, quiet, including a 300' fishing pier, yet minutes from bay front restaurants, USS Alabama and downtown historical district of Mobile. This park is classified as lakefront. However, it has waterfront lots on Ducker Bay, which is part of Mobile Bay with direct ocean access. This body of water is the same one that has the battleship USS Alabama moored on. One word of advise. Alabama State Parks' reservation system is unreliable, if not completely broken. I telephoned on the Thursday morning before Memorial weekend for a 4 day reservation and was told they were fully booked for Fri, Sat, Sun. Only Thursday night was available. I was only a couple of hours away, so I decided to turn up and hope for a cancellation. When I arrived and asked if there were any cancellations I was told "No problem, we have availability for 4 nights." It turned out that there were 15-17 empty spaces every day. And I was told by regulars that this happens every weekend. My rate was $29 Thursday and Sunday, $34 Friday and Saturday. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 3 nights as we were heading out west. The location is great with easy access. The sites are very good size and are paved with picnic table and grill. Our site was on the bay and very pretty. The water was calm this morning and saw several alligators. The bath house was nice and the grounds were well kept with flowers and a nice fishing pier. The showers could have been cleaner and hard to get pressure which you cannot control. The shower curtains need to be bleached, as they had black mold spots. The rest of the bath house was clean. WIFI was good but regular antenna stations were intermittent. There is interstate noise as I-10 crosses over the bay directly in front of the campground. There is supposed to be a maximum 14 day stay but appears to be more permanent type camping towards the back of the park. Tents were also in the playground area but did not look like campsites. This is a good park for an overnight stay. We would stay here again if passing through the Mobile area. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a wonderful camping spot in the Mobile, Alabama area. The sites are paved and level. Almost all the sites have a beautiful view of the Mobile Bay. It was so quiet and relaxing. The restrooms and laundry facilities were very nice and clean. The camp host was super friendly and helpful. It is only 5 minutes from the U.S.S Alabama Battleship Museum and downtown Mobile. We had a wonderful stay. We would have spent the entire week here if not for having other reservations. We will be staying here again! We camped at Meaher State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 2 nights at this beautiful state park right on Mobile Bay. Some of the sites back right up to the waters edge. Utilities and WIFI worked well and the restroom/shower facilities were clean though an extra towel to stand on after showering is needed to keep your feet dry. No cable but we got several TV stations on the antenna. Saw a couple alligators from the boardwalk and some crab fishermen were catching a few from the pier. Also, beautiful sunsets are a plus. There are geocaches in the park if you partake in that activity. There are some great seafood places a short distance to the west on the causeway. We took a day to drive out to Dauphin Island and it was well worth it. We read about the ants and found out you can repel them with borax so we circled our site with it and didn't have any problems. Almost a perfect score if the showers had floor mats or something to keep the floor dry in the changing area. I would surely recommend this place if you are in the area but you better make reservations We camped at Meaher State Park in a Travel Trailer.

From the first welcoming words and friendliness at the entrance gate, we knew we were in a good place. The sites were roomy and comfortable, and our site was right on the water. The sunset with the lights of Mobile across the water was awesome. The new restrooms and showers were wonderful, and the laundry was clean and well stocked with machines. We would most certainly return. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park. Very clean. Blacktop roads, sites and patios. We stayed on site 35, waterfront. Did not see any ants around our site; although, park handout said campers should spray for ants. Site was perfectly level. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice place to hang out. Park has gated fence that is locked at night with a code to get in. Park workers polite and friendly. Spaces are very large and staggered, which makes for more space between campers. They all have a lot of grass on each side. The spaces are paved with a picnic table and BBQ grill. We had tons of room to open sides and awning. Park is very clean and has some long term renters, all of which are tidy. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Meaher State Park is one of the best state parks we have stayed at. It had full hookups with sewer too! It was clean, had lots of room, and was located in a quiet, great place. Although I cannot recommend visiting Mobile, Alabama, I would recommend staying at Meaher State Park. It is a relaxing place to spend a few days and enjoy some southern nature. Would I recommend this park? Absolutely. Would we come back? Yes, we will stay a few more days if we return to the area. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park, level sites, paved roads, clearance for big rigs. Caution if using Garmin, it may direct you past park entrance but turn-around is possible, even with 36' class A and toad. We were East-bound on 90/98 and Garmin said entrance further East and on left (is actually on South side). Pull-throughs are interior side, back-ins have better view of bay (and I-10). Distant road noise but was cool and windows closed so no problem sleeping. Good utilities but sewer connection higher than desired. Ranger advised us upon entry that if we had ant spray we might want to use it. Had no problems. We were passing through so just an over-nighter, believe would be convenient base location for local site-seeing. We would stay here again when in area.

Wonderful quiet setting. We were parked right up on Mobile bay. Lots of space between sites, and lots of tall pines for shade. There wasn't much area to ride bikes though, just a loop around the park a few times. The road in front is very busy, and not bike friendly. Would, however be happy to go there again while visiting the area. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly lady at the gate, smiling and helpful. Nice large back in site with great views of the gulf. Cheapest laundry of all the parks we've stayed at $1:00! Make sure you have ant spray. Go to the Five Rivers Delta Safaris Resource Center across the road and even better if you have your own boat/kayak. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects 7 day senior rate. State park, between I-10 and Highway 98, enter off of 98 with very little traffic except rush hour. Kinda easy to miss the entrance hidden by the tall vegetation. Easy access with a big rig. Helpful gate people. Beautifully set on the bay with a view of I-10 crossing for every site. Several on the water. Fishing dock on front end of park complete with a resident alligator and a boat ramp on the back end. Good level paved sites, several pull through, many large sites, all with full hook up. Clean bath and laundry facilities centrally located. Satellite would not work for the tall trees, could get local NBC station. Decent Wi-Fi. Very quit though you do hear the traffic on I-10. Ants. Ants are a major problem. If you do not know how to deal with them, better avoid this park. This place ranks at the top of our list. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. Sites are level and very wide and some sites are on the bay. There is a boat launch and very quiet. Water pressure was good and the park is well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.
