Needed a place to overnight and this was the perfect place. Pulled in just before dark and the owner lead us to our site. Pulled right in and left the truck hooked to the trailer because we were leaving early the next morning. Just needed one board to level up and pulled the bedroom slide out but had plenty of room for all of the slides if I needed to. The owner recommended a good place to eat where we had plenty of parking. Yes, the park had many permanents as other reviews have stated, but for $15 a night (Passport America rate), and a secure place to spend the night, it can't be beat!
An easy 5 mile drive off of 59 into the country brings you to a secret gem of an RV Park not many know about yet. Easy entrance into the park, concrete streets and sites. The way the sites are laid out, you don't have to be a professional truck driver to back your RV into the site. The sites are level and all of the hookups are positioned in a way as to not interfere with slideouts. With the room between each site, you don't have a view of your neighbors sewer hose but of plentiful green grass! A sidewalk leads you to individual mens/womens bathrooms we used each night. With the summer heat and humidity, the air conditioned shower room was a real treat! Adjacent is a covered pavilion with a vented fire pit, flat screen TV, gas grill, sink, and a hot tub. Great place to have an evening campfire in the cooler times of the year. A small storage building housed the 2 washers and 2 dryers; nothing fancy but cleaned our clothes just fine, thank you! A fellowship building lies behind the office. If the looks on the inside are in comparison to the outside, it must be real nice. As you enter the park from the road, you immediately see the office building in front. The design of the office porch sets the mood of the park as a very relaxing place to stay for a while. I made my reservation over the phone with the owner. She was very accommodating and being that I had never seen the park before, she recommended the perfect spot to park for a week. Most sites are shaded, but if you want sun those are available too. We were on the west side of the park. The park is situated between residential homes. The eastern side is next to a residence with several dogs, who at times would break out into a chorus. Oh, should I mention the sheep! We were inside most of the time so we were never bothered by them. It was so quiet at night we had to run a fan to make some noise. Spent 6 nights; wanted to stay longer, but have to make a living. Remember I said this was a gem? We were 1 of only 3 campers in the park. Maybe because there is no pool or playground. Picked up 30 TV stations off the antenna without even turning it. Located 1 hour from Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL and 30 minutes from the beach, it's the perfect place to enjoy all the tourist spots. The owners plan activities for all the snowbirds who fly south in the fall/winter. I understand they will be close to being full this winter! Don't tell anyone about this place, it's a secret!
Stayed here one night as a stop over. The owner was super nice and saved me a site for my late arrival. Even though it's proximity (.25 mile) to I-65, the highway noise was at a minimum. The city listing is Hope Hull but actually is about 5 miles south (exit 158). Has a truck stop at the exit with fuel and a Denny's. Stayed here less than 12 hours and found that the park was small but well laid out. Sites were gravel, some leveling may be needed on some. Would not recommend for a summer destination for the trees do not provide shade (yet). Great place for a one night stop over. Has full hookups, private shower rooms and is set in a nice countryside setting. Well worth the stop.
Gave this park an 8 rating out of 10 for a few reasons. There are a few "permanent" residents but not of the "normal" variety. There are sites that can and have been purchased. Many of them and even a few of the "campers" seen to feel like it is common practice to have a golf cart to take you anywhere on the property. Many it seemed, bring their dogs along with them. Personal opinion only, when I camp I want less responsibilities. But all seemed to clean up after them. The sites were about 45' in average length with about 15' between each rig. Had to park truck diagonally in front of trailer. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and just a 5 minute drive to grocery stores and restaurants. Nightly rate reflects prime season with a Good Sam discount. I am usually leery of places that call themselves resorts, but this place has so many amenities we weren't able to take in because we were out sight-seeing the scenery in the surrounding mountains. Stayed 5 nights and if we were to stay longer we would have been able to fully enjoy all this park has to offer. Streets were well paved, most sites were gravel except the one's that were owned by individuals (concrete). I know the price is kind of steep but the park is well laid out and the best part is that you don't have to climb a mountain to get here!
