The host was very polite. He even changed our spot to give us a view of the dam. We have a toddler. I wouldn't recommend this place with small children because of how the sites are designed. They are like cliffs. You have a concrete pad with a wood deck but beyond that it falls off into the woods/water. Thankfully, we brought our toddler's locking gate pieces, therefore we were able to block most of the wooden deck with the RV and the rest we used the gate to block access of her being out and running around. It was quiet and cozy. It was a little scary backing in, but once there, then it is great! It is a bit of a drive from the highway. We used this as an overnight stay coming from New Orleans and headed to Pigeon Forge. It was perfect for that! We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

This is another great COE Park, our cost reflects the National Park Pass discount. As with most COE parks all sites have water and electric, all sites have a level concrete pad, gravel patio, fire ring, picnic table, grill and hanging post. Great park, lots of shade, wide main roads. About 3/4 of the sites are large and big rig friendly, the River Bluff Loop should be avoided if you have a rig over about 25'. Be aware in warm weather there are snakes and scorpions. Verizon cell and data have a good signal, TV antennas get good reception, dish may be limited. We would camp here again. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely deep-woods campground in an Army Corps of Engineers park. Sites are well-spread out and the trees make for decent privacy. The $11 rate is based on the senior discount. The regular rate is $22/night. The roadways leading to and inside the park are winding and hilly, but manageable. The sites have close to level, wide concrete pads, fire rings and picnic tables on the patios. Sites are spacious enough to fit your tow/towed vehicles. This isn't close to town, but grocery shopping is about 15 minutes away. No sewer connections at the sites, but there is a convenient dump station. 50 amp worked well, water pressure seemed a bit low, but usable. Off-air TV provided limited stations but with a strong digital signal. Your satellite will only work in certain sites due to the think foliage overhead. Strong Verizon cell and 4G service. The restrooms and showers are modern and clean. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very, very nice park. Beautiful pull-thru site with water and electric. Site perfectly level but I don't recall what the surface was. We had a problem with our hitch and the camp host sent several people to see if they could help. We enjoyed our stay of two nights and we able to get help in town on Monday and be on our way. I wish we could have stayed longer. Country Roads RV had the part we needed and were very helpful. Don't hesitate to call them if you're having a problem. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground. It is quiet and peaceful. Our site was very easy to get into. They are paved and level, they are spread apart so you don't feel crowded at all. They are well shaded. Picnic tables and grill were nice and clean. The area was well mowed for a national park environment. Although there was only one washer and dryer, they were clean and centrally located and ran well. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. The employees were very helpful and friendly. They checked with us often to make sure if we were in need of anything. There are trails down to the water. The trip out to the campground was a little winding but nothing that was too sharp for our 5th wheel. Overall the campground is very well kept. Only down side which is to be expected in a park campground is there is no septic hook-ups but there is a dump station that is very easy to get to and use and of course there isn't any tv connections for those who like to have that accommodation. We will definitely return if we are ever in this area again. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Showers hot and lots of water pressure. Has a washer and dryer. Trails are in terrible shape - don't use them. Campground is nice. Lots of pull-throughs, good utilities, good OTA TV, MiFi only with amps and antennas. Lots of winding road to get here. Nice and quiet unless Bama is playing. Decks are nice with a little view of the lake through the trees. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
