What a lovely park. We stopped over while visiting family. Everything from the check in to check out was smooth. The sites are level and paved. There is a picnic table and grill at each site along with well made decks. Everything was clean and well tended. We didn't use the bathrooms/showers so can't speak for those. We have already booked a longer stay for our next trip through Alabama. What a gem. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You can't arrive after 10 pm or leave before 7 am without quite a bit of pre planning as there is a gate and VERY limited after hours access. Plan accordingly.

Great Corp of Engineers campground. Host even offered to help me set up. Small campground with a few pull throughs. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoy the hiking trails, fishing piers, and the separate beach area.

Corps of Engineer park just outside the city. A hidden gem! Very quiet, all sites have concrete pads, water and 50 amp electric. Fishing pier, swimming beach, laundry (only $1.00 each for washer and dryer), dump station on on site. Bathroom and shower were old but clean enough. No wifi, but Verizon Jet Pack worked well. We were able to pull in several TV channels with just antenna despite heavy tree cover. Extremely friendly camp host (Tillman) told us that it's usually nearly empty in July and August. Each site has a grill, fire ring, picnic table and another table by the grill. Unique sites, some having wooden decks overlooking the forest, very private. We paid $11.00 per night and would definitely return! We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Tent Trailer.

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.

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.

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.
