This is not your usual RV park. It really is an old time southern fish camp. Most of the sites are occupied by long term residents (many on concrete blocks) that live in near-by towns. The camp rules say that you can stay there as long as it does not become your permanent address. We met folks there that work on off shore oil rigs. Most of the sites have a big boat that is kept there. The entire park was dirty and not well kept. Our site had several spent charcoal dumps on it, and beer bottle caps and cigarette butts were everywhere. The site next to us dumped their spent ashes on the ground everyday. The showers were a mass of old pipes and mold. The toilet stalls were rotting and falling apart. I asked the office twice one day to clean up blood on the restroom floors and it was still there when we pulled out. Most sites are very narrow and very close together. Their “walk to the beach” beach has tree stumps all over it and even out into the surf. The community has very little to do unless you bring your off shore boat with you. Be prepared, this community is a study in revenue enhancement. Restaurants were mostly non existent. With all the great state parks in Alabama, it is hard to believe the state is connected with this facility. We will not stay again.
This is a very nice park that is located across the street from the casino, and just off I-20. All the sites are paved, just not very level. Every one is a pull through. The $21 we paid was with a Good Sams discount. We got two free coupons for the breakfast buffet at the casino. A shuttle bus will pick you up and drop you off at the front door of the casino and when you are ready, it will bring you back to your site. There are lots of good restaurants close buy. Historical sites are just up the road and are a must see and visit. This was our first time there and we will stay there again.
A great park, not too far off the Trace. Very quite and a nice separation of sites. All sites are gravel and roads are all paved. This is a very nice park with a well kept playground and actually two lakes - one has a swim beach. We didn't fish but we did see some nice strings of fish caught each day. All the facilities were very clean and well maintained. There are not too many activities in the area but good restaurants and casinos just down the road. Some sites are reserveable and some are first come. We have stayed there before and will stay there again.
