Cash only! Couldn't change a $20.00 so I went back with the correct change after setting up. Elderly lady didn't remember writing down my passport number so I had to return for my card (again). She then informed me I was a penny short so I gave her another penny. Then she asked for my passport card and I showed her where she wrote it down. Also, Park is full of stickers and dog & duck poop EVERYWHERE. Shade trees shade the roads, not the sites. OK for overnight passport park. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A lovely oasis about 5 miles off I-10 near Bellingrath Gardens. No frills, just peace & quiet on a small pond teeming with wildfowl. A perfect stopping place at the end of a long day on the road. The Payne's are welcoming and genuinely happy to have you visit their park. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be aware the Garmin GOS is not accurate as to the entrance of the park. It is on Bellingrath Rd and is well marked.

A quiet, basic park with huge pull through sites, lots of trees, open spaces and a nice pond. Sites are mostly grass, decently level and all of the utilities work as expected. You pick your own site upon arrival, which was kind of nice since we were able to face the pond. Lots of water fowl and other birds in the park. A good number of sites were occupied by workers and a few full timers, but only a few trash RVs on the property. The owners are friendly and are on property. This is a basic no frills park which makes the PA rate attractive. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

I have a 42' fifth wheel, was very easy in and out of park and sites. A good value for an overnight stop with PA. Quite a few extended stay guest, but sites were clean. No wifi or cable tv, 15 OTA tv channels. Nice country atmosphere and no freeway noise. 10 min. to I-10. They have propane, but is expensive. pay for convenience. I would stay here again.

We were on a cross country trip for the Thanksgiving weekend, so we arrived after sunset and left fairly early the next day. This is an older park with gravel roads and plenty of grass. Sites were level and spacing between sites were acceptable. One note is that they don't accept credit cards (cash only) and no WIFI available. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Entrance to the Park was down a long single lane road. The setting looked very peaceful and comfortable. My first thought, based on previous reviews was one of concern. I thought it would be more of a farm-like appearance, but not so. Granted there is many droppings of goose poop, but it was not overwhelming. Did not notice much of any odor. Sites are grass and gravel, FHUs with 30 and 50 amp service. We just had two days of heavy rain but all sites were clean and dry. Check in was easy; good satellite and cell service. We were there for just one night. I-10 was 30 minutes away. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice overnight stop about 3 1/2 miles off I10. An older campground with limited amenities no cable, wifi not working but pretty rural setting well kept and clean. A few older full time campers but neatly kept. Water,sewer, and good electric. Would stay here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, quiet park, with easy in and out. Friendly owners, easy check-in. We only stayed 1 night on our way through the area. We paid $21.80 after tax, with Passport America. Bathrooms/showers were not fancy but clean enough. Though we didn't use the laundry room, it was clean and spacious. We chose a back-in site with lots of shade, as it was hot and humid. Our site was dirt with a little grass. We used blocks to level easily. The grounds are well kept with a nice pond. We enjoyed watching the geese and ducks with their babies. Other reviews mention smells, we did smell the waterfowl and there were a few chickens behind us near the maintenance shed, but it wasn't bothersome. Only noise was Mr. Rooster, he let us know when to wake up:) But it wasn't a problem. We would stay here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Coming off I-10, be sure to take the first road in with the sign (on the right), which is the entrance. GPS tried to take us in the 2nd road but the 2nd road is the exit.

Park is quite, clean, and the staff is friendly. Contrary to the advertisement, there was no operational wifi. Passwords did not work and the staff said they were having problems and that WE should contact their carrier. Also, neither we or our neighbors had success connecting to their "cable TV". We checked 5 sites with no luck. In short it's a nice campground with no technical amenities. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

A rural, quiet setting with a pond where geese, goslings, and ducks roam/swim. Several pull-thru sites. Most sites are grass but some are gravel. Office was pleasant but it isn't the cleanest. Our hunting dog had a huge area to run. Good place for an overnight. One review commented about a smell. We believe it is the humidity and the warm winter they are having in 2017. No cable even though there is a connection there. We had several local stations available. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a LOT of fowl, consequently a lot of poop. To top that off, there are a LOT of leaves that have fallen and it smells kind of moldy. It had been raining and it was wet, there are few spaces that have any kind of gravel so it was a muddy, poppy, stinky mess. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very quiet old park. I've never seen only grass on the pads. That was different. It made it a little more difficult to see exactly where you were supposed to be with a 40' rig coming in at night. A little off the beaten path. The cable was excellent and so was the park attendant. I would stay here again as a pass through. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in south Alabama to go to Bellingrath Gardens' Christmas light show. We had reservations at another RV Park, but when we got there, we had no spot, the office was closed and no one returned our call. I called the number for Payne's. They answered and told us to come right over. It's not fancy, but after visiting several places all the way to Dauphin Island, we decided this was the best place for what we were here to do. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Payne's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bellingrath Gardens is a must see and is about 10-15 minutes down the road.

Dauphin Island is about 40 minutes away if you like the beach. There's a fort and a estuarium there, also.

Mobile is very close by.
