Very nice COE park. Wooded with paved access roads and concrete pads. Picnic tables, lantern poles at every site. Some sites have water views and wooden decks. Quiet, close to the Black Warrior River. Access to lake swimming and fishing. Nice covered picnic area. Clean, but simple restrooms. Hosts very nice. Dump station. Wooded, so no luck with satellite TV. Only a few channels available on air. Approximately 10 miles from a grocery store, so make sure to take what you need.

A super campground. Staff very nice, campground is on a lake and a beautiful one at that. Paved sites and paved streets. Restroom is the only weakness. The were not air conditioned and it was well over 95 degrees, so the restrooms were well over 100. Great pavilion for group dining. Install AC and this place would be a solid 10.

Deerlick Creek Campground is located Holt Lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway northeast of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The facility is in a beautiful forest along the shoreline that provides campers with access to water sports, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, and biking. Sites are paved, large in size with a good bit of privacy, and full hook ups (W/E/S). I camped at Site 11, located across from the bunk house, and in my opinion this site was the best. Bunk house was super clean. Numerous on shore fishing docks are provided. I caught three respectable sized Crappie during my stay. Another unplanned benefit that I encountered was that the sites were stocked with ready to use (split and dried) fire wood at no cost. This added benefit was provided by the resident COE volunteer, a retired Marine. Thank you kind Sir! The campground is situated amidst a mixed pine and hardwood forest that displays colorful foliage along the riverbanks each fall. Deer, squirrel, wild turkey, migratory birds and blue birds all live in the Holt Lake area. Cell phone coverage was good. TV reception was nonexistent. Deerlick has the potential to host rallies as it has a huge outdoor pavilion which sports 8 picnic tables, electrical, water, and a huge BBQ. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Campground is about 25 minutes outside of Tuscaloosa but it's an easy drive to get to it. Sites are very large and spaced for privacy from neighbor. Bathroom facilities were spotless and laundry facility was inexpensive. One negative to consider - a number of the campsites are positioned on the cliffs overlooking the lake with severe drop offs. Something to consider if this is an issue for you. My site 2 did not have a water view but the slope around the site was gradual which was preferred. Nice trails to hike - the trail to the swim beach is extremely steep. Same looked to be true for some of the trails to fishing locations. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.Undo

I gave this a 7 due to the fact that there are no sewer hook ups and the bathrooms are clean but old and typical of state campgrounds and parks. The sites were level and private. Each site has a nice patio and fire ring. We had no issues with low hanging trees and we are 14 feet high. The people that run the place are nice. This is about a 15 to 20 minute drive from the University area of Tuscaloosa. We would stay here again. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Truck Camper.Undo

A great Alabama park. Concrete sites. One loop has a steep grade that goes down to the river. Large rigs beware. Upper loop can accommodate large rigs easily. In the woods next to the Black Warrior River. Dump station. 30/ 50 amp power and water. Also a dedicated primitive area. Difficult getting TV reception due to trees. Road to park is a little winding from Tuscaloosa. You have to take it slow and has some low hanging trees. Very quiet except during football season. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Very nice walking/biking trail. Has boat access and beach area on river inlet. Bath houses clean and in good shape. Playground, pavillion for picnics and 1/2 court basketball.

What a beautiful setting in a shaded, wooded area! They did not give us a pull through site but the one we had was beautifully situated. We would have liked to have stayed a few days here. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.Undo

This campground is one of the top we have stayed at. We stayed at site 39 along the river. The cul-de-sac turn-around is small and those cars who wandered down our road had to do a 3-point turn to get out. My kids loved riding up and down the paved street on their bikes and scooters. All the sites are well designed with large level concrete pads for RVs and wood decks to enjoy the outdoors. The only negative thing I can say about the campground is the amount of poison ivy. Most of it seemed like new growth, but they need to spray around the sites before it gets bad. Even with that being said, we will definitely stay here again.

Located about 12 miles from Tuscaloosa-Northport with many turns, hard to find. GPS helpful. It is on a hilly bluff above the Black Warrior River just upstream from a dam. It is a road in with scattered campsites many having overlook wood decks to the side of the paved sites. Very wooded. A fairly level bike path parallels through the woods on either side of the main campground road. Bathhouse good but can be a hike up the hills from some of the lower slope campsites. There is a beach at the river a bit off from the campground proper that I didn't bike down the steep hill to see. What goes down has to struggle back up. Rangers were nice and talkative. We would stay there again. Corp of Engineer campgrounds we have stayed at have all been top notch. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.Undo

This is our favorite campground. The Corps of Engineers should be exceptionally proud of this park. The roads are recently paved and the sites are all very level. The sites are scenic, spacious, wooded and provide an impressive degree of privacy. There are also very nice walking trails that aren't too challenging. The restrooms were very clean and the camp hosts were very friendly. We will return to Deerlick again and again. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Beautiful park with lots of walking trails and a great place for a short stay. Only one bathhouse for the entire park. On Alabama football weekends the place is filled with fans, there to attend the games. The gate is locked at 10 PM regardless of the situation when practically everyone is there for the ballgame. For night games this makes it difficult for all. I even offered to give the attendants a combination lock to use for one night. The walk from the gate is over a mile on a very dark road. Cars have to be left along the road with no security. There is a permanent resident who runs a shuttle service, which is probably the reason for being so inflexible about the 10 PM rule. Corps of Engineers could fix this if they so desired. Somebody needs to use reason. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This campground is excellent!! Being a Corps of Engineers campground, there is no sewer, so you need to be comfortable with that when making a reservation. The campground has trails through the woods and around part of the lake. Also, there is a fishing dock. Be aware: sites 36 and higher are either very tight for anything over 30 feet or do not have adequate maneuvering room for a rig over that size. Site 36 has an extremely steep entrance: larger rigs will scrape their hitch and/or ladder. Do not be fooled by the site lengths advertised. We stayed in site #35. That site, along with #34 are fantastic. Lake view, large decks overlooking the lake, and a large fire pit area. Many of the pull through sites are pretty tight for larger rigs. Sites that are good for big rigs would be 9, 10, 11, 16 and 20. Reserve any of those or 334 or 335 and you will be very happy. We will definitely return here in the future. The price of $9/night was utilizing a Senior Access pass. Regular price would be $18. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed in site 34 for one night on our way to the Smokey's. Very clean, freshly paved roads, level concrete pads. We had a wonderful deck with a view of the lake. I would love to return and spend a few more days. The park was basically empty on Sunday, perhaps because it just reopened after renovations. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Tent Trailer.Undo

What a wonderful place to stay! We used this as an overnight stop but wish we had longer. We had a large pull through site with a deck and a great view. No ant problems as was previously mentioned. All the sites seemed to be quite large, well spaced apart and with plenty of woodsy area between them. Would definitely return!!! We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo
