Good Sam discount for one night. It was a gravel, pull-thru site with FHU and 50 amp. There was no park WiFI. There was good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. The owner is quite friendly and helpful. He recently purchased the park after it sat vacant for three years. It remains a work in progress. They had live bluegrass music on the night of our stay. The park was okay for a one night stay. - Dave51

My wife and I stopped here on our way to, and from Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL. I can't say enough about the friendliness and welcoming spirit that this campground's showed. This facility used to be called Bluegass RV Park...these are the new owners, and the Park is a work in progress. It is situated right off of I-65. When travelling south, I will use this RV Park as a rest way station again. - MSGLeatherneck

Quaint RV Park not far off of the Highway. We stopped here on the way to Memphis. We only stayed one night. Park could have used a little more attention to detail, T.L.C. Not bad for an overnight stay. - MSGLeatherneck

The park was very busy the weekend we stayed and we got one of the last sites. It was what they called a "buddy" site. That meant one camper faced one way while the "buddy" faced the other and shared a large patio. Great when traveling with friends. - tomboy257

One of the best KOA's we have stayed in. FHU, level, easy in and out. Had patio with furniture, fire ring, and grill. Had shade tree but still able to use satellite. Good dog park. Would stay here again. - Banker bill

The park is not far from the interstate but they need better signage at the entrance road. We passed right by before seeing it. Fortunately, we were able to turn around at the business next door. There is also a deep drop off at the exit when making a right turn. They really need to fill it in, if possible. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Our concrete patio had a nice shade tree, wrought iron table and chairs. There is also a free standing fire pit which we didn't use. There is some road noise but not annoying. We would definitely stay here again. - dickens

We called this park when we were on the road. We were told there were plenty of spots and they had 50 amp available. This park is located on the grounds of an amusement park, but now that school is in session, the rides are shut down and the park was about 1/3 full.
However out of around 200 spots, only 24 are actually 50 amp. We go through a gate, pay our $80 for 2 nights and with no escort and only a campground map which was not very clear, we were told to take "any 50 amp spot". That was the first clue that there might be a problem.
We rode through 11 rows looking for 50 amp spots that were not clearly marked and some that were not marked at all. ALL of them were taken. The spots were very narrow and very uneven even though they were paved. At this point it is beginning to get dark so we had no option but to get our money back and leave. We had seen 3 other motorcoaches circling around and then leaving. We would not recommend this campground to anyone with a motorhome, a large fifth wheel. It is suited for those who can use 30 amp, run their electric underneath their rig, and are short enough to park at the front, middle or end of the narrow site. - leciel19

Good - My husband and I attended the Tri Five Nationals and the Raceway is accommodating for such a large event. Lots of parking, trash cans, and space for all of the events happenings. Beech Bend caters to the dragstrip/raceway.
Bad - The camping area is HORRIBLE!!! Even though the Tri Five is a national event and I would think Beech Bend would have time to plan and get the campgrounds in shape; the campgrounds was deplorable. The campgrounds had very tall grass; drinking water was randomly brown; many people were having trouble with sewer system; had to share water spigot; 50 amps were not working on some of the sites; trashcans were far and few between (some without lids); first come first serve for picnic table, picnic tables needed to be scraped and painted; flies were out of control and some of the permanents had too much trash stuffed underneath trailers/motorhomes. Be very careful not to park downhill due to the sewer issues. This campground doesn't cater to tourism. Even though there is security at the gate of the campground; I never did see any staff from the campground empty any trash; or check on any of the leaky faucets; or check on any of the unusable 50 amp outlets. We stayed five nights and had a chance to witness many unhealthy issues - we will not return. - PhenT

This is the single worst RV park we've ever stayed at. It is probably meant to appeal to families visiting the amusement park and not traveling RV'ers. Unfortunately, because we were traveling around a holiday weekend, our choices were limited. We found this park deplorable because:
- Sites flood heavily after rain
- Sites SHARE water on single faucet
- Sites very un-level, potholes
- Very few 50 amp sites
- Open sewer hookups
- Sites not well marked
- No directional signs
- Clutter at many permanent resident sites
- Picnic tables 1st come
- Trash cans 1st come
- Lack of maintenance!
The best part about this park? Seeing it in our rear view mirror! - CWinLV

This park has uneven sites. So much so that, even with the use of the on-board RV leveling Jacks, we couldn't extend our bump outs.
This park is very unclean. The bathrooms (showers/commodes) are filthy and in need of maintenance, cleaning and updating.
The laundry facilities are the same. The machines are rusty (inside and out). I was afraid to use them over concern that the rust would bleed onto my clothes during the wash cycle. I had to take our camping laundry to an off-site laundromat.
Beyond the uncleanliness of the amenities, the grounds too are unkempt. The front sites (visible front he road) are mowed and weedeated. The back sites are not.
The camp directs you to walk your pets in a "designated area," that is all well and good if they would actually direct you to where that "designated area" is, which they did not. Everyone here seems to have a different opinion about where that is. The most common place seems to be by a large trash heap in the middle of the park. I walked my dog near that spot in the day, but was hesitant to at night. The pile of wood debris in the middle of your campground is dangerous. There are used boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches. ed boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child/pet/anyone to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches.
We had an overnight stay on Saturday night. This was BYOB and Karaoke night on the office porch (not far from our camper). The more the crowd drank, the louder and more off pitch the Karaoke singers became. They started at 5 PM and continued until 10:00 PM. We had planned phone calls to family back home and a movie in our camper. The karaoke began and remained so loud, even inside our own RV, we were unable to keep our plans. - George Hall III

I stopped here looking for one nights rest. The staff was very polite and helpful. The campground is catering to mostly permanent setups and the newest RV in was at least 20 years old. I did not see any open sites except for the small one they put me on. It would be too small for anything over my 21 footer. I did my laundry here and while the machines have been well used. Some had rust and some were out of order. My clothes came out clean and dry. Everything remotely movable was chained and padlocked. If you want cheap camping and not a large rig it would be OK, but if rough looks aren't your style I would keep looking elsewhere. - Goinmobile

It reminds one of the poor section in Bombay, India. I would drive further, and I did, to find something else. They should name it "Rats nest". - dumpo
