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.

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.

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.

This was our 3rd visit to this park. My personal all time favorite. We had a site near their pond. Very serene location. Host was extremely helpful. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 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.

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 park is off the main highways in the area, but very easy to find. Access to sites is good and each site has lots of space. They have a nice duck pond with weird black and white ducks which sets the tone for the interesting longer term residents. They are in the process of connecting to cable and high speed internet. Laundry facilities were clean and inexpensive. Rate is for PA. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice little RV park out of the hustle and bussle of Mobile. The roads are gravel and sites are gravel/grass. They have a nice little duck pond and it's pretty quiet without the train noise that the other CG a couple of miles away has. There looks to be some long term week ender sites here that are neat. The showers were clean with good hot water, but a bit cramped, a solid C rating. Their MiFi works sometimes on the slow side with a booster antena and verizion MiFi works a bit slow. The cable seems to just have local channels. This is a good place to stay for a couple of days and is reasonably close to Mobile. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sweet campground. Overnight stay was very pleasant. Managers were so nice! We did not arrive until 8:30 PM and they came out to meet us and show us to our site. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice management, could use some TLC with baths and grounds. WI-FI works OK. We are here for a month but will check around before coming here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is sparse. Camping rates $6.00 higher than rate quoted in new Passport America directory. Pavilion was full of goose droppings, but was the only spot to get wi-fi signal. Propane rates differed 50 cents between husband and wife. Would not stay again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.
