This is a very small campground next to a marina. The marina is very nice and has great food and a bar (which means nightly activities). The sites are very short and very narrow. It rained and our steps led right down into a muddy area. Most sites sit right on the little road you take to pull in, so you are right in the traffic area. There are no restrooms or shower facilities. There are also a few permanent residents there, but it is directly across the entrance from River Bend Campground which has lots and lots of permanent residents. It was fine for meeting our friends to get on their boat and ride the river and go out to the islands, but would not stay there if there if not for that. - TerryMScampers

We have been full timed here at Santa Maria for three years now. We have another trailer we travel in which is why I began to look at park reviews. We choose this park over others in the area because it is quiet and very spacious. Also it is close to town but you feel like you're living in the country. There is a small very nice farm next door with horses and goats. Also there is a pair of bald eagles that frequently fly over the park. They can be seen many times a day in a sitting in a tree that you can see clearly from the park. The laundry facilities are clean and in good working order. The bathrooms and showers are very clean and always fully stocked. They have a nice salt water pool that is very well kept. I find the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this park to anyone wanting a nice quiet place to stay . - C6js

Poorly maintain, dirty. Staff have poor attitude. We stayed for 6 months due to hospital needs and had to request our lawn to be mowed. Rules not enforced. Police called a number of times due to fighting and drunkenness by construction workers that live there. Website mis-leading, pond completely overgrown with weeds, no boat ramp, and alligators present at times. - lbowker

Park is not as advertised. There is one area, next to the road, with level pull-thru sites, basically a gravel parking lot. The rest of the park is dirt and nowhere near level sites. The pool was not open, and did not look like anything I would use. There is only one, not "pools" as advertised. The "fitness room" is a storeroom with 3 machines which do not work. One thing the park does have, which the ad doesn't mention, is a 4-wheeler track around the pond which you have to listen to 8 hours a day. There are no rules concerning pets, so dogs are penned/tied outside and no one picks up after them. Vehicles speed through park. Very disappointing. - Vern&Margaret

This was our second stay at Indian Point. During our first stay, we were assigned a site in the "PA" row, which has concrete pads is not too bad. This time we were given a site in "PC" which is so sloped that it was literally impossible to level our RV. We moved (at our request) to another site in the row that was not as bad as the first one they gave us but still very difficult to get level in.
Most importantly, insist on a site in row PA as PC and PB are not even close to level for the most part.
There appear to be a number of perms and/or long-timers living here, but the park is quiet at night and we had no problems.
Bring your bug spray because the flying insects are numerous and hungry.
The roads inside the park are quite bumpy so drive slooooowly. - w3sjkb3aam

OK for an overnight stay but that's about it. Restrooms/showers are badly in need of a complete rehab. Laundry is "closed until further notice." Roads within the park are in need of regrading. Basically, an old and tired park. The only plus is the wifi is good. Lot spacing is very close with some shade. Site surface is a concrete pad. - BruceVero

This was an overnight stop. We were assigned a paved overflow site so we could back in without unhooking the trailer. Very nice folks at check-in. We didn't use any of the park's amenities but it looked like a pleasant place. The cafe was closed down The Wi-Fi was spotty in the evening but early morning it was pretty much trouble free. We would stay there again. - sprinter55

We found this park to be very clean and easy to get around in. Yes there were a couple of low hanging branches but nothing that was a worry.
We did not use the bath house so can not assess it's cleanliness but the rest of the park seemed to be very clean.
The lady at the front office was very helpful and welcoming.
We had 50 amp power and water, which a lot of state parks do not have either.
I think for the value it is a great place to stay, especially with the amenities it had.
We would certainly state here again if in the area. - prstlkid

Stayed at this State Park for one night while passing through. We arrived after dark, so navigating through it in the dark was a little tricky. There are a few low limbs on the road going into the park, but you can get around them. Very quiet State Park. Bath house was not clean and in bad need of repair. There was a sign on the women's door that said the bath house was in the process of being remodeled, which they were obviously working on. We stayed in Site 24, which is a pull thru site located just off the road. Pretty site and fairly easy to get in and out of. Electrical box worked fine, but needs to be upgraded. Very nice and friendly staff. We would stay here again. We camped here in Jan. 2015 in a 40' fifth wheel. - Digetydog

Gravel roads. Our site had a nice view of the marsh. We expected trouble with mosquitoes but had none. We had trouble leveling. No WiFi, very helpful staff. Even though it was full it was very quiet. - winnie1

We stayed here two weeks and enjoyed it a lot. The Good Sam discount didn't apply to the weekly rate, but the price was good without it. The staff was great. There are lots of long-term campers here and we were put in the "overflow section"....which turned out to be fine. It was level, and was backed up to a large lawn and great views of the bayou (birds, boats going by, etc.) The shower/toilet building is older but kept very clean and everything works. Our only complaints were with the terrible Wi-Fi. It was always weak or no signal at all, and dropped out constantly. An added bonus was the cafe that was on site. They had good prices and good food. Most of the raves were for the breakfast items and the Thursday night steak special. We will definitely be back next year. Watch out for the biting gnats, however! - stocky

The park allows extended stays which was nice since my husband was working at the ship yard on a 2 month contract. They have a minimum 6 week stay. The RV section is close to the office and surrounded by permanent mobile homes. They have a great pool and playground, bbq grills and picnic pavilions. I felt very safe taking an evening jog around the park. They allow small pets so sparky was happy. Overall an excellent place to stay if you are visiting the coast! - Dora the Explorer

We stayed for 2 months. Lot sizes are nice with cement slab for picnic table. They kept up on lawn maintenance.
There are a lot of permanent park model trailers. They offer WiFi. Not top of the line but does do the job. No cable but your antenna picks up many station. Washer and dryer. Not sure nightly rate we payed monthly rate. - Anne14

We have stayed at Camp Journey's End many times over the years not only because of its proximity to The Shed BBQ, but because it was a lovely campground. This is no longer true! It is about one third the size it was before and except for some full-time residents, the place looks abandoned. The ads on the internet claim they have wifi, cable, showers and bathrooms.The wifi is marginal, cable is nonexistent and the one shower is so nasty I wouldn't bathe my dog in it. There are two toilets (unisex) where I killed a large cockroach one morning. The place is horrible - the worst by far of any campground we ever had the misfortune to visit. Get your Shedhead on, but stay ANY place else in the area. - Mother Goose

Nice wide pull through sites and trees and landscaping were nice. Right next to a great BBQ place and across from a good gas station with diesel. Quiet and easy access. Now to Why I gave it such a poor rating. The park is on a highway easement, they can't use over half the park, and it hasn't been updated in years. No WiFi, pool was a swamp, low water pressure, ants everywhere, no TV channels available even on antennae, no Good Sam discount, and no credit cards accepted. - Axe and Cindy

This campground is very compact and although there were a number of large rigs in the campground during our 2 night mid-week stay, pay attention to the site lengths when reserving a space; some are quite short. Also, the campground was full both nights we were there, so reservations are advised. Sites were back-in, electric and water, paved and fairly level, and could easily be corrected. Large rigs should avoid heading around the tight turnaround by site 16, as it's tight. Be mindful of the low hanging branches. Showers have individual doors and are very private. The National Seashore intake person came around in the early evening to make sure everything was OK with our stay, a very nice touch. The only demerit for the place was the bunch of cigarette butts in the fire ring. The rate shown reflects the 50% off with the federal senior pass. This is the second time we've stayed here and will always return here when in the area. - Jay Rutherford

Private showers (own outside door). Very friendly hosts. The park's natural features are quite nice (can see the alligator!). Our site was around the edge so shady with tall trees (acorns at night!). - Paul-Amy

Site was a short, fully paved, level back-in. Due to recent storms the entire property was soggy/flooded (you can't really blame this on management). One wheel of the truck dropped off the pavement while backing in and I had to go to 4-wheel drive to pull it out. Site was a little short for my 35' fiver and long-bed crew cab but no one objected to a little obstruction of the street. Many long term campers and LOTS of children who do not watch for traffic. We will stay here again if it is along our route to somewhere else, but it is not a destination campground. - Alworth

When you pull in, there are very nice cabins, a putt-putt, pool, hot tub, a nice playground and lake. The office lady was VERY nice and then you pull out to enter the campground. When you make the turn into the actual campground you see cluttered, old campers with junk all around them. It looked like 90% are long term residents and the spaces are paved but close. We were sent to the back section across from an old camper graveyard slophole and 2 dumpsters, what a lovely view! This could be a very nice campground if the permanent rift-raft were made to clean up and remove the freezers and junk from outside their campers. Will never stay here again and do NOT recommend it.
Lot spacing was very close with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was a concrete pad. - Countrygal1

Passport rate. I called ahead and got the pull thru site. Sites are close together but okay for a night or two. Convenient to I-10 so there is a bit of interstate noise. Pull thru site view is of the storage lot with old, damaged units and close to dumpster. But it works for a quick stopover when traveling. We would stay here again. - lstaff

This park appears to be going through some change. The sign at the entrance says Bay Park RV Park. All the literature and the web site says Alabama Port RV Park. Office is an Anchor Realty office. They have approximately 10 new concrete sites that they are listing as RV sites for sale. All of the others are either back in or pull through gravel lots. The lots are level and easy to get into. The bath house is a mess. On the men's side, the toilets are not clean and several do not appear to work. There is one shower that has a curtain and appears to be used somewhat regularly as there are personal bath items left in there permanently. The building appears to be of fairly recent construction and it looks like they just did not finish it nor maintain it. The woman's side is of a similar condition according to my wife. There is an abundance of garbage around the perimeter of the park and the dumpster is overflowing. Park personnel are aware of it as they were mowing the grass close to it today. The park does have potential to be a nice place, but I cannot recommend it in it's current condition. - mwallace61

The park is less than 1 year old and is in excellent condition with a pool, laundry and shower bath facilities. The ownership is taking care to keep the facility an exceptional campground that is heads and shoulders above any RV camping property within a 50 mile radius. An excellent plus rating. - drcpa

This place was AWESOME! So incredibly clean and landscaped beautifully. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The pool was perfect and sparkling clean, like the rest of the facilities. We only stayed one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Just a little bit off the interstate, but not inconvenient. Loved it! - Camping Ben

Wow! This is a hidden jewel near Mobile. I would consider it "boutique" camping, if there is such a phrase. We stopped in just for a night on our way to the east coast for college visits. We were welcomed by the owner and a yummy jar of jam. At our site, there was a chalkboard with our family's name on it, even the dog's names were written! The pool was lovely and the bathhouses were seriously the nicest we've seen anywhere. We wish this had been our destination. When we pulled out early the next morning, we were given a bag of kettle corn for the road. They thought of everything. If we ever have to travel through mobile again, this will be our overnight resting place. - Sovrn1
