Stayed there 5 days. Old campground, paved sites...very shady, even in the winter. Campground is quiet and out of the main stream. Water and electric, have to use the dumping station. Very few RV's here in December... At $15 a nite--you can't beat it for a stopping off place. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Motorhome.

Small mostly wooded campground at the junction of the Tallapoosa and Coosa Rivers. The campground consists of a large circle around an open field surrounded by woods. The inner sites have a good view of the sky for satellite reception. There is an 1830's cottage that serves as museum and park office. There is a display at the site of the first fort as well as a recreation of of the 1751 fort next to the campground. Most interesting to us were the pair of replica Creek native American homes. On the downside the rest rooms are in serious need of renovations. The men's showers were partially collapsed and two of the four were closed. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Motorhome.

The bathrooms were quite dirty. There are some permanent residents there. No problem with them. As a matter of fact, they were friendly to all. This campground was not very full. If you need a base near Montgomery, give this a try. If you don't need sewer and bathrooms, you can't beat it! It's also very close to the casino. Just a heads up, the casinos in Alabama all have the bingo slots. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Motorhome.

Lovely setting. Big trees, lots of Spanish Moss. Sites are spacious enough, and most asphalt pads are nice and level. Very quiet. Most sites are large enough for our 37' 5th wheel, but some require you to park your vehicle at a slight angle, to fit in the space. Our space backed up on Lake Coose, which seems to be a popular fishing lake. If we are back in the area, we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Fifth Wheel.

We live in Montgomery so Ft. Toulouse is only a 30 minute drive for us and weekend camping there is something we do often. We love the size of the camp ground and the camp sites are large and always clean. I will admit that there are some sites that hold water after a good storm, we have never had a problem. We never get tired of exploring the two forts and walking trails. Everyone there is polite and friendly and we will continue to go there. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful well-kept Campground. Lots of big shade trees with Spanish moss. Sites are well spaced. Peaceful at night. Host on-duty could not have been nicer. We got there after dark and he came and unlocked the gate for us. Helped us back into a campsite. Some sites available along the river bluff. Very pretty.

Some neat history at the campground. Replica of American and French Fort and an Indian dwelling all within walking distance of the campsites. Nice walk in the fall but would have been very hot looking at the forts in the summertime with no shade. No information posted on the history and not a lot to see. Brochure with a little history available in tiny "museum" which consisted of two display cases, again without labels or information.

Camping areas were great. Kind of fun too walk around at the fort area but would not make it a destination.

We stayed here one night on our way through to Florida and would stay there again. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Travel Trailer.

One of the hosts put out corn at his site for the deer at night. Was really neat to watch them come up and eat. Our kids especially enjoyed seeing the deer so close.

This is a beautiful (and at this time of year) very quiet park. We have seen all varieties of birds, squirrels, and even an armadillo over our coffee this morning! The only downside is that the water pressure is very low, and there is not septic, only a dump station. TV reception is pretty good, ATT is about 1/2 bars most of the time.

Rate above is at monthly w/senior or military discount. Very peaceful location w/good, level asphalt sites (back-in only) and roads. Good city water with slightly low pressure. Very good electric. Heavy leaf fall: a leaf blower is very handy here for clearing your site and also for clearing the slide tops before departing. (Very congenial camp host keeps vacant pads cleared, but we prefer more than just the pad cleared). Satellite TV is possible with careful site selection and/or a mobile dish. Good over-the-air TV reception. Good Verizon 4g signal. Central bathhouse is nothing fancy, but is clean and nicely heated. Squirrels and deer are seen almost daily. Tables, grills, and fire rings at sites. We will stay again. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful little park. Very quiet, yet close to town. Probably the best voltage we have ever had. Ran very close to a full 30 amps and never dropped below 119V. While the park is on well water, the attendant informed us that they are switching to city water in the next few weeks, which would explain the hardware sitting in the woods. There are a couple of river-view sites, but water access is difficult due to being on a 30 ft bluff over the river. Sites are large and level and hosts are very nice. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our home base park when not traveling. Most previous reviews are pretty accurate. You will need a good water filter here because it is well-water and can be muddy at times. We use an inline filter and a Brita pitcher inside for drinking water. Bathrooms could use a refresh, but are kept pretty clean. Staff and regulars are friendly and very helpful. Rate reflects the monthly long term rate. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects "long term" monthly rate. This is a very pleasant location with good tree cover. With some care in site selection, roof top satellite TV is possible. Electric connections are in good repair, and voltage is stable. Bathhouse/showers are OK: best thing there is the heat! Water is OK, but rust colored. No sewer at sites, but good dump station. Long-term sites are available with agreed on background check. Gate is locked 10pm-6am. We would return, but will have TWO sediment water filters next time.

I basically agree with the last reviews, I just want to add that if at least one in your party is 62 or older the rate goes down to $11.44, very good value for the money. This rule applies also to out of state visitors. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Travel Trailer.

The Fort Toulouse campground is a very peaceful place to spend a weekend. Not very crowded the weekend that we were here, but that might be different during re-enactment weekends. It was a great place to let the kids run around. There is a big central grassy area that makes a good place to play. The campground and park roads were not busy, very conducive to undisturbed bike riding. My only complaint would be about the bathrooms. Only a few faucets on the sinks worked, and the toilets seemed to be a little leaky. The shower stalls were OK, but some of the shower curtains did not completely cover the door openings. Not a big thing, but makes taking a shower kind of a public event (if you go to the bathhouse during peak hours). I can't complain though, because the Alabama Historical Commission, which is in charge of the park, is not really in the lodging/campground business. The bathhouse needs to be adopted by someone from the "Friends of Fort Toulouse" group, so that it can be spiffied up a bit. Overall, our stay was really great and we plan to camp here again soon. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Tent Trailer.

I like this park because it is scenic, peaceful and off the beaten path, about 16 miles from Interstate 65. It sits on the confluence of the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers at the site of a historic fort. One-third of the sites have a view of the river from the bluff with great sunsets. The campground is a small loop encompassed by mature trees dripping with Spanish moss. There is a field in the middle for kids to run around. The historical area needs some care but the area is interesting with plenty of room to walk (approx 2 hours of strolling). We stayed Thanksgiving weekend, the campground had very few campers but had an abundance of birds of striking varieties. I heard that the park is very popular when re-enactors occupy the fort. The staff (1 person) was very accommodating but the bathrooms are dirty, lack hot water, and need repairs. There is a Walmart, grocery stores, strip malls and fast food 3 miles away. We saw a nice Italian restaurant about 3 miles south on 231. The park seems very safe, someone was patrolling at night. The park is very suitable for kids to ride their bikes, low traffic and flat trails cut through the meadows. A great bike trail for the big kids is only 9 miles north at the ‘Swayback’ trail. It has 12 miles of twisting turning singletrack. The Shakespeare Festival park/theatre is 25 minutes away in Montgomery. It is a gorgeous complex with theatre, gardens, art museum, lakes and walking trail. The productions are professional and reasonably priced. I would imagine that the park would be hot, muggy and buggy in the summer and unfortunately I didn’t see any access to the rivers where you could cool off. We camped at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson State Historic Site in a Motorhome.
