Very nice RV Park. Not far from either Mobile, Daphne, or Spanish Fort, Alabama. Right down the road from the USS Alabama, and all the fresh seafood that you would care to eat.

There is one drawback at this park. I had read the comments concerning them, however I did not take heed. The dreaded ANTS. Do not fail to bring ant KILLER!!!

Other than those critters, the park was nice, clean, and quiet. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

We've traveled from Phoenix, AZ for the past 8 days and this was the most expensive campground. It also had the best view and nice tall pines, so it was worth the few extra dollars. No internet, but level site pads for pull-throughs. Full hook-ups made it easy to set up. Would recommend. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Rainy weekend but site drained well with no standing water. Wifi was weak, but Verizon 4G was four bars so hotspot worked well. Staff was friendly and inviting. Bathroom was clean when we arrived. No fire rings, but a grill was mounted in each site. Picnic tables well built and functional. Sits right on the bay with no highway noise from I-10. HD TV received many channels by air; no cable TV available. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects 15% senior discount given except Sat. Full hookups, free wifi. Easy on and off I-10. Some noise from Mobile Bay Causeway truck traffic, yet mostly quiet. Site #6 offered clear view for satellite signal. No sugar ants this stay because it was so cold. Fishing pier. Good birding. Security gate currently not working. Standup grills.

Electric and water were fine. Sewer hookup is in a good location, but most people will find it slightly uphill. Be prepared for dealing with ants. They have a pest control service, but a week or so after they have treated, you will see parades of ants again. You will need powder or other treatment especially if you plan to stay any length of time. Sunsets over I-10 can be lovely. There is a WIFI network, but the employees tell me it is not working and would not provide a password. Broadcast TV is sketchy. We never got NBC and the ABC station came and went. All in all not a bad park, but if visiting again would stay east of Fairhope. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

First let me state I am a resident of the state of Alabama and support the troubled State Park system. So please find my loving intention here.

I reviewed this State Park November, 2014. A year later, not much has changed. The overall condition and appearance of the grounds have improved. The grass was cut and the pine cones and needles have been raked. The location and layout of this park is great. It makes for a very relaxing stop for a few days with lots to do in the area, especially for us mature campers. The view of Mobile Bay and skyline is very nice.

But other than that, I am sorry to say, much is the same. The bath house is a mess and so was the laundry. Floors were dirty, shower curtains moldy and washing machine tubs with rusty rings.

The bathhouse and laundry condition notwithstanding, there is one reason I will not return to this park: ANTS. Sugar ants are everywhere and will be in you RV and or tow vehicle within minutes of parking. Last year we were warned at check-in about the problem and luckily had some insecticide to stave off the ants. Nothing was said during check-in for this visit but I sprayed and put out granular insecticide anyway. Ants were in the trailer and truck within hours. Perhaps nothing can be done about the problem but I will bypass this lovely State Park until this situation is addressed. This is a pity because Meaher has a lot of potential and it's sad to see it in this condition. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park have stayed here several times and always choose it when when traveling through Mobile. It's quiet, close to shopping and services, easy off and on I-10. The sites are full hookup, there is a fishing pier, laundry facilities and boat launch. Highly recommend this park. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is convenient to I-10 near the eastern end of the Mobile Bay Causeway. It has paved roads and pads that are level. Full hooks with stable power. Pine trees provide some shade. A satellite signal can be obtained from many of the sites. Strong Verizon signal. Many nearby restaurants and shopping. My only complaint were the ants. After seeing many ants on the ground outside the RV, I sprayed the pad around the tires and along the electric cable and set out ant traps inside the RV and in the basement. My neighbor was not so lucky and departed the park early because her RV was filled with ants. Park management agreed the ants were a real problem. So the park was nice in many, many ways, but the ants were not, thus the 8 rating. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
