We just needed a place to stay for the night, so we stopped here. There is really nothing wrong with the place, but not sure I would stay here again. The road to get here is kind of out of the way. The roads inside the park are all dirt full of potholes. The biggest gripe we had, was the sites are very narrow, and the tree's are very big. We had to crush the tree branches to put our slides out, which you always worry about scratching up your coach doing this. The Wi-Fi was so so. Think there were several people living full time at this park. There were several run down rigs that looked like they have not moved in a very long time. They have not trimmed the trees in a very long time here. The driveway, which is very long, had a lot trees that would scrape the sides of your rig as you drove down it. The bugs are seriously out of control, must have been bitten 1000 times trying to BBQ up dinner. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small park but very nice staff!! Easy in and out of sites. Although a few miles off I-10, easy access. Large green areas to walk dogs just watch for all the ducks and geese. No pool but close to a medium size town. Very peaceful, and would stay here again!! We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice RV park. It is very well kept with full hookups including 50 amp electrical service. WiFi was not working well but they were working to improve it. The staff is friendly and gave me a great recommendation for a seafood restaurant. There is a lot of open space and a pond. It very quiet and peaceful. Nearly all spaces are pull-through sites, plenty long enough for our 40 foot RV. We will definitely be back. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Chose park because of passport discount and GS write up. Appears to be an older property that needs TLC. Roadway was partially paved, then turned into dirt with lots of potholes. Sites may have been gravel years ago, but they haven't been refreshed in awhile and are filled with mud and grass. There was adequate room between us and the next rig, but that was because there was an empty site between. Had all sites been used, it would have been very tight.

We were greeted by a very pleasant person in office but didn't have any other indication of campground staff. Bathrooms needed cleaning and paper supplies replenished. Laundry offered washers and dryers for $1.75 each but we did not use them. Lots of signs in laundry and bathroom reminding campers to clean up after themselves.

We were not impressed with this park. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Internal roads are gravel, sites are level and are fairly close, facilities worked well, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, park WiFi was slow but steady, T-Mobile cell service was 2G (EDGE). The park was quiet. This park is a decent value at the PA rate, not at the regular rate. There are roaming chickens/roosters (which start singing at 3 am). We would stay here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park for a short visit. Great pull thru. The couple in the office were very nice and friendly. Easy to get to and exit. Lots of strange looking geese in the pond tho. It poured all night long so in the morning it was a lake around our site. The sites were level, some shade. We would visit again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed this campground - it's grassy and a bit secluded (back from the road) so it's very quiet. There is a pond with Canadian geese and ducks.

There seem to be some full-timers there but everything is clean and orderly. What we liked most was the location - close enough to Mobile if you wanted to go to the city but far enough away that there's no traffic. It's a bit away from main road but we enjoyed the peacefulness.

Lots of restaurants and grocery stores not too far away and easy access to the 10 freeway. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the second time we stayed here and the campground is great for overnight or a few nights. It is an older campground but accessible for big rigs. The pads are gravel and level and there were several 5th wheel and large motorhomes. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a grocery store a couple of miles from the campground. We stopped there prior to entering the campground. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping with a 5 mile area.

The bathrooms are dirty and so are the machines in the laundry room. The place is owned by an elderly couple who do the very least they can do to maintain the park. The Muscovy ducks are cute and leave their marks, meaning it's filthy. If you have a dog, don't come here. We had an ant infestation because they do nothing whatsoever to the grounds. And, the last day we were here a lady told my husband to be careful because they had some things stolen. If we go back to Mobile, we will boondock, and don't like the thoughts of that but there is no other choice. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, serene, park, with wide and long sites. Cable is good and Wi-Fi is good (when it's up). Pond with ducks, geese, and lots of grass. Off the beaten path, so it's quiet but slight train noise. Close to Mobile and USS Alabama. Not listed as PA, but gave us discount. Great overnight park. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the best park in Theodore (we checked out some others). Park is well kept, laundry room and bathrooms are clean. Level gravel and grass sites, although driveway could use leveling and more gravel. $5 charge each time you use a credit card to pay. All staff friendly and helpful. We would stay here again when in the area. Ducks are fun to watch. Good place for dogs, plenty of exercise area. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not a resort but rather a peaceful slice of the countryside, well populated with domesticated geese - fun to watch. There is a small pond for looking at and lots of open space. Sites are spacious, flat, and level, gravel and grass. All sites have a small picnic table. The laundry room was clean and convenient as were the restrooms - only one person men and women's restrooms, large and inside. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a decent enough campground for a day or so. There isn't much activity available for longer term. Lots of geese and ducks around the CG. Lady owner is friendly and helpful. Sites are stone/gravel with grass and are level but are not well groomed. This cg is older and not getting a lot of attention. Exit road is pretty rough. Wifi is $3/day which makes the total cost of $25 a bit pricey. The setting is off the highway and it's quiet which is it's main attraction for me. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.
