This is a very nice park. We stayed here overnight, and had a long, spacious pull through site. The owners were very congenial - someone stayed an extra day in the site we were supposed to be in, so they upgraded us to a better site at no charge. The only problem we had was finding the road to turn into off the highway. The sign for the park was actually after the turnoff, so we had to make a u-turn (not the easiest thing to do in a 38 footer). FYI - take the turnoff to the baseball complex to get to the RV park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park right off interstate. I agree with previous reviews as it was perfect for overnight. We also stayed on the creek side sites and we heard the water all night long. Nice. Owner very friendly and we enjoyed our conversation with his Dad. We will definitely be back as we travel this way to and from Atlanta. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this campground! We stayed in a pull-through site on the creek. It was gorgeous! The water flowing was such a relaxing sound and lightning bugs provided a light show!! We met and talked with the owner - a very nice young man with plans for expansion. We only stayed one night while traveling, but would love to go back for a relaxing weekend. I would give it a 10 if there was a swimming pool!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park needs some TLC. The upper sites overlooking the baseball fields are gravel and not very level. Water pressure is low. The interior roads are narrow but can accommodate a large RV. We had a strange man knock on the side of our RV at 6 AM and then proceed to walk around the park talking to the trees. I don't know if he lives in the park or was a wandering crazy. The cable and Wi-Fi were very good. Would not stay here again. This could be a nice park with a little work. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Awesome campground right off of I-85 at exit 51 and close to Auburn University. We camped here in a 40ft motorhome towing a car and used one of the "Big Rig Friendly" pull-thru sites. Wi-Fi and cable TV were free and worked well but mainly we were just glad to come across a "Big Rig Friendly" campground headed down to the beach/gulf that was right off the interstate. Staff was friendly and offered dining info on the town which had some neat places downtown to eat so on our way back we stopped back in and spent an extra day exploring the Auburn campus. When you get off the interstate look for the Hampton Inn about 1/10th of a mile right off the interstate and turn right just past the Hampton Inn. The campground overlooks a city softball complex that is well maintained and there are also pull-thru sites along a large creek for waterfront camping. All in all a great value and easy on and off interstate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My husband had to work a temporary job near Auburn. We stayed here for three months. The staff was extremely accommodating due to the fact we did not know how long we needed to stay. A very clean park. The park is right off I-85 and close to stores and restaurants. We had no issues or complaints at all and would absolutely stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
AGREE with the signage warning: it IS right off the interstate and the c/g sign is part of a smallish sign that points more to a parking lot than to any specific facility. Then you will drive around the perimeter of that parking lot to get to the c/g. The c/g itself is on a hill overlooking a major parking lot that mist be used for football season. I am not sure I agree with the "big rig" friendliness. Though the sites are a mix of pull through and back in, several of the corners were tight for my truck and 35' fiver. It was more "off season" and the office was closed when I arrived, but the registration process went well and I chose the upper most site which allowed me a quick get-a-way in the morning. CATV and WiFi worked well. The manager's wife brought me my receipt and WiFi code shortly after I had finished my limited set up. (I left truck and trailer connected.) All in all a good place for a overnighter on the road, or maybe a weekend for a game. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner is awesome! Available,caring and friendly. The park is clean and sites are ample. Hook-ups excellent. Great place for the pups. Easy on-off I-65- does need better signage at turnoff. Would expect large crowd in football season but otherwise nice and peaceful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped here for one night. Easy on/off I-85. You can hear the road noise but it is not bothersome. The park is close to the beautiful town of Auburn and of course the Tiger stadium. Many sites are booked for football season. Staying here on a game weekend might be a hoot but hard to get in. The owner and his son are very friendly and helpful. We needed a pressure regulator and the owner's son drove all over town to find us one even after I told him we could fill our freshwater tank. He loaned it to us free of charge. The park is shady and a little hilly. The park was clean and well kept. It was nice to have garbage cans located on poles at each site that were checked and dumped daily. We would come back again and spend a few days exploring the area and downtown Auburn. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground. We were just passing through, but we enjoyed our night here. Never met the office staff, but he was very friendly on the phone. The sites along the stream are nice and peaceful. Would love to stop again if we're ever in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice place, but a little over advertised. The waterpark next door (the very reason we came with the kids) was closed due to a “management dispute.” I don’t blame this on the campground, but when I asked him two days before arrival what activities they had for the kids, he said, “We have a waterpark right next door.” Wish he’d have told me it was closed. In any event, the park was clean, quiet, and flat, and the manager was VERY nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loved this campground. Friendly staff. Clean and well maintained campsites. Good location. We were here scouting out a spot for college football season. We got a spot right in front of the creek and it was awesome. Could actually hear the creek water running from inside the camper. Wi-Fi worked good. No problems while we were there at all. Only two complaints - our site was a little too close to permanent residents who had lots of tents, and personal items around their campsite and the management wasn't taking reservations for individual football games. You had to book for every home football game in the upcoming fall football season. This was disappointing as we had hoped to come back only for a couple of games. As a result we will be staying elsewhere. However, would definitely stay here again if given the opportunity. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park. There is a new owner who is an RV'er himself so he is pretty well attuned to the campers' needs. He is planning to expand and improve the park. I camped on a crescent which was more than ample for my 39' unit with a 5' MC lift on the back. There are several such sites in the park. I called in advance of my visit to make a reservation. The owner explained the different rates. When I arrived at about 2PM there was no one in the office. I called and was told to pick out a site. Apparently the one I chose without knowing was the most expensive! I stayed here a week with no discount for a week's stay! I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Decent park just off the interstate. Could use a bigger sign at the turn in (we missed it and had to turn around), and it's a little winding to get back to the campground-not that big of a deal, just be aware of it. No traffic in the winter, but I could see it being an issue needing both lanes to make the curves in the summer with a water park on the same road. Super friendly staff, nice facility, decent hook ups on gravel sites that were reasonably level and long. Wally is about 10 minutes away. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was great and help out with everything (we were new camper). We stay on lot J and there was a stream next to the camping site which was great to sit and eat and watch the water run. Great place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Called ahead to be sure no large college thing going on and the new Magellan took us right to the entrance to the parking lot. This park is located in the rear of parking lot for baseball facility and up on a hill allowing viewing of the games. Shower etc. very spacious and comfortable as it is very open with large bench in the center of the room. Be sure the local cat doesn't get caught in the room when you leave. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park hidden behind a ball field, we were in site 14, 20 feet away from the stream. Just as we were arriving it was downpouring, while the stream rose about a foot (within its banks), it quickly subsided when the rain stopped. The roads were crushed rock and sites were level and roomy. Lots of walking opportunities for kids and dog. We stayed one night on our way to the Smokies. I would much rather stay here than a "parking lot" campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was concerned about leveling from some of the comments I saw, but when I called and spoke to the manager, she was so nice and friendly and told me about the sites on the creekside. They are mostly pull throughs and very level. Bonus for me was the nice trickling sound of the creek that could be heard from my open bedroom window: Site K. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a driving emergency and these people were great –hence the good review. While the park was not what I’d seek for an extended time (sites were narrow, not very level, navigating through the park was challenging with a toad) the lady in the office was very understanding when we lost all hydraulics and needed to have some work done while sitting in our space. This campground sits on a hill on the edge of a municipal ball field. I would imagine that maybe in late spring the noise might be a problem, but we had no problems while we were there. Sites are gravel, and as stated, very narrow. I would not want to try to drive off the freeway at night and have to navigate through the park due to it being on a terraced hillside. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was very quiet, although the waterpark next door was not open for the season. Lady was very nice in the office. Had some difficulty getting level at our site. The laundry room and restrooms were clean, the men's shower has no privacy for dressing. Overall we enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Built on the side of a hill, its an engineering marvel that they could get level sites at all. Very friendly owner with a very casual nature in running the CG. Dogs run wild and folks just generally ignore the usual quiet times. Most are extended stayers. Lots of gravel on site and in spite of recent rains there was no problem keeping your feet out of puddles. Not a bad deal for only $19.63 a night. There are few offerings along the interstate and this one looked the best based on reviews. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were traveling home to Atlanta, when one of the tires on our motorhome blew out. Unfortunately, it was already past 5PM and the service company couldn't find any local dealers that would be able to help us that late. We were able to stop at the Leisure Time Campground in Auburn, for a one-nighter very quickly. The manager checking us in was very helpful. The signs to the park were a little hard to find, but it's right behind a baseball/softball complex. This is a great little campground to stop for 1-2 nights. It's no-frills, but there is a nice little creek nearby, a few permanents, but the campground is clean and well kept. Seems like a decent park to stay at if your coming to an Auburn game. We stood out like outcasts, only because we are very apparent UGA fans, with our UGA golfcart, and UGA stickers on our RV. Everyone was very nice. We would stop by here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is a little unusual, pull throughs were mostly semi-circles, but long enough for out rig, 37'. As stated before it's next to a softball complex, and one night they had games. The freeway noise was not noticeable inside. Owners was very nice, she was out of town on our arrival, but had placed a reserved sign on our site and we paid her when she got back on our second night. We would definitely stay here again. Note: you access the park through the same entry as the softball complex, the road is a little winding and tight, so pay attention to oncoming traffic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on our way home to Atlanta when we couldn't drive anymore. This campground was an unexpected delight! It's an older place with some permanents, but the water is good and there were plenty of pull-throughs for us to overnight in. In fact, we pulled into one of the hilltop sites overlooking the ball fields and were treated to softball games for several hours. Some people might think that is a negative, but we loved sitting up there with a bird's-eye view eating our dinner and cheering them on. Dinner and a show! Cable TV was good, the laundry room is well-lit and in working order, the restrooms are very clean, there are kitties to be played with. And the owner couldn't have been nicer. The $20 fee includes $2 for cable TV. I don't know that I'd choose this park as a destination unless I were going to a football game. But it fit the bill for our one night. And once the games were over around 10:30pm it was nice and quiet. We will definitely keep this place on our list We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice clean Good Sam RV Park. Nice pull-through sites. A lot of activities if you care to spend some time here. There is a water park right next door. We just stayed one night and it was quiet and restful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed at Leisure Time several times on an overnight basis. The facility is well maintained and reasonably priced. Hook-ups are good. Water pressure is the best that we have had at any park. This last visit we had a site overlooking the little creek that runs down one side of the park. We might go back to stay a few days and relax by creek. A nice staff. We have enjoyed our overnights there and will definitely "stop-in" again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an overnight stay for us. We were accommodated for our extra capacity as we were traveling with an extra vehicle. Very nice and friendly. Close to interstate. Plenty of restaurants within a 5 mile radius if you are tired of fast food. Would stay again if on our path of travel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has shade and non shade sites. The roads through the campground are paved and somewhat hilly; however, the sites are level. The owner is very nice. All sites are gravel, some are narrow, others 1 - 6 plus G are wider with an fenced municipal ball field on one side, a small brook on the other and toward the back a very nice open field. There is a water park adjacent to this campground. The campground looks like an older campground at first, but it is very nice for an overnight stay, and I would be happy to stay longer if we were visiting the area. There is road noise, but it was minimal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here several times as our daughter lives near by. Very friendly employees but they are not there all the time. Check in available all the time. Sites are close together and not paved but level and smooth. A nice place to park and stay but not a campground to play in. Very clean. Next to a ball park and a waterpark. Very easy to get to also. About a 1/4 mile from I-85. You can see it from the interstate. YOU MUST TURN RIGHT AFTER THE HOTEL. We have passed the entrance twice. Not a big deal but thought I would mention it. We will continue to stay here in the future. A nice place. It is across the road from the state park but they didn't have sewer and was really run down. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Twice, I pulled into this campground late and had a little trouble finding a unoccupied campsite. After closing, registration is by the honor system so knowing exactly where a free space is can be a little problematic--if the campground is near capacity. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean. It is a nice place to stop for the night, and the rates are reasonable. I stayed there in 2004 and 2005. I would highly recommend it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here through most of the fall 2004 before Auburn Football games. The lady that runs
the park works here part time. They have an honor system for check in, she was very good about answering messages. A very good clean park right by the interstate. The park overlooks a softball park/complex and often there are games till 10 or 11 PM. This wasn't a problem for us the lights were out by 12 and there are sites available on the back side of the complex. We love this park for its proximity to Auburn and the folks that run the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I arrived after dark and had a very difficult time finding my camp site. The office was closed and the map posted was difficult to read. The interior roads were not well marked or lit. The corner of the roads had large rocks that were not well marked either. After driving around about 20 minutes I had to get out and walk the campground to find my site. Two other campers arriving about the same time also had problems finding their sites. I would not recommend this campground if you are arriving after dark. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stopped here on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC from Houston, Tx for one night. A nice little park right above the Auburn U. softball fields. The showers were spotless. If the softball fields are in use then expect the lights to be on past 10:00 P.M. which could bother you if you need it pitch black to sleep! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Good park. Pull throughs handled 40' 5th and toter. Modem friendly in the laundry room. Overlooking softball fields and next to a water park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
52 RV sites in two loops, with 10 primitive camp sites. Gravel sites with tarmac roads in good repair. Clean bathhouse on the loop I was at. I was on one of the two only electricity and water sites; the rest are electricity, water, and sewer. I do not know if those sites were more expensive. Park has a pretty lake with small beach for swimming and canoeing plus trials. A good place for our overnight stay. I would use it again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great state park very near the Auburn University campus. Easy and quick approach from I-85 down a straight and gently rolling two-lane road. Park roads and campground loops are paved and RV sites are crushed rock. Spots are relatively level, wide, and should be deep enough for almost any rig. A few spots are perpendicular to the road and backing in a big rig might be challenging. The sewer connection on most of the sites was in the back, so you might need extra hose if you have a midship dump valve. Most sites are very well shaded and have plenty of room between to afford some privacy. The McVay Loop bathhouse was always clean, and the staff and host were friendly and accommodating. Firewood and ice are available at the park office. There is no camp store but a Walmart, Winn Dixie and many restaurants are within 3 miles of the park on the north side of I-85. The park has a great system of hiking trails though they could be marked better. I attended Auburn and spent a lot of time here during college. The park gets very busy with day use students and can be quite noisy on fall and spring weekends, so be ready for it. If you want to stay here on a home football weekend you have to get reservations many months in advance. The website lists reservation call dates for home weekends. The only negative comment I have about the park is the noise level from traffic outside the park. You can hear it quite well from both camping loops up until about 9 pm. Other than that, it was a very enjoyable visit and we will return in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice Alabama State Park. Very quiet (no football game). Great place for walks with the pups. Good security. Much to explore- will take more time here next time. Level sites and good 30 amp hookup. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, quiet park. They are updating power to 50 amp. Sites were gravel and we had some ant invasion but were able to control it with granular repellent spread around the outside. There are some off road bike trails in the park and a nice paved bike path right outside of the park. Definitely will return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a year ago, and the park is about the same this time. Our site was a pull-through so we didn't disconnect the towed on this one night stopover. A nearby bike path is great for exercise either walking or biking. The rate reflects a senior discount available to all (including non-residents) over age 62. The park is only a couple of miles from Auburn and malls for shopping. We would stay again when traveling through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our nightly rate reflects week-long stay. This campground does not enforce Alabama State Park's "vicious" dog or "leash" restrictions. In fact, a campground volunteer site posts "Beware of Dog" sign for two large, aggressive dogs. Guests bring as many and whatever breeds they desire. Management is aware but takes no action. Children and pets are not safe here. One very small dog was attacked and nearly killed while we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small campground, with a few very pretty sites overlooking a large wooded area. The bath house and laundry area were very clean and in good shape. It is close to Auburn and stores should you forget anything, but far enough away to enjoy the off-season peace and quiet. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This state park (an old CCC park) is only about 2 miles from I-85, but is in a rural wooded area near a reservoir. The staff inquired if we were using a satellite dish and assigned us to a pull- through with a good view to the south for the dish. Sites were a mix of back-in and pull-through. The price shown, for water, sewer, and electric, reflects the senior discount offset by an 8% sales tax (on food, too!). Each site is covered with pea-sized stone that drained well after a rain storm. The restrooms and showers were "early concrete block," but clean. We used this site to explore Tuskegee University and the airfield used by the Tuskegee Airmen for training in World War II. The campground was very quiet during our weekend stay. A nearby recreation path was great for a morning walk. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park with nice wooded sites. There are several large sites; we were able to park our 39 ft toy hauler with room left for the truck. The guys in the office were very helpful. It is very convenient to everything in Auburn, but still feels like you are in the country. If you are looking for a campground with a lot going on during football season, then go somewhere else. This was relatively quiet even after a big victory. (War Eagle!) We had good Verizon service, and AT&T was adequate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of trees very narrow roadways getting in and out for a big rig. Due to the trees satellite would not work. Folks that like the more rustic state camps with smaller rigs would find this a beautiful park. I will stay in the nearby private park with cable TV next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Spent the night here passing through town. Very quiet and fairly clean. Some of the sites are a little small as far as containing picnic tables and fire rings. However, most of the sites are fairly well spaced. The lake is pretty. Would probably not visit this park again just to stay there. However, would certainly stay here again when passing through or had something to do in the surrounding area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice Park if you are visiting Auburn or just passing through. Wooded and quiet with
several nice trails around a 50 acre lake. Swimming beach and boat rentals are a short walk from the campground. Campground is only a couple of miles from the interstate. Much better than the Private compground at the same exit. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This state park is located four miles south Of Auburn and is convenient to I-85. It has 696 acres. It features a 26-acre lake, rental boats, picnic areas, and cabins. There is a four dollar charge for use of the dump station. They offer RV storage for $2 dollars per day or 40 dollars per month. They have several nature/hiking trails that lead to the waterfalls - very nice! I think that I would have rated it higher if the sites had been paved (they were gravel) and the rusted hard lock you needed to unlock every night after 8pm to get back into the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All utilities, Wi-Fi, cable are excellent. Some pads are cement, others are gravel. All look quite level. Reasonable grass. Some friendly, but loose dogs that seem to be permanent residents. Check web site for various rates and services. Call ahead and get site number and provide credit card. Owner isn't always on property; he has a phone number to call. About 10 minutes off the freeway. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great location, convenient to campus. Much larger than it at first appears from the street with many shady spots towards the back. The bathroom is fairly new and well-cared for. Lots of tailgaters that book for the whole football season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge RV park (over 500 sites) and is primarily used by those visiting Auburn University (especially during football season). Most sites have full hookups with city water. There are some beautiful sites with lots of shade trees. The owners (Mathan & Jill Holt) were most accommodating and wanted to be sure we were comfortable. There are two things keeping this park from being a 10 in my book. The first thing is not having a nice bathhouse and laundry facility but they have a very, very nice one under construction which will be completed in May. The second thing is the proximity (several hundred yards away from the front of the park) to the CSX main rail line. There are numerous trains that pass both day and night but if you ask to stay in the back of the park which is a half mile or more from the tracks, you don't hear it as much. We have and will stay here again. The park is on Hwy 14 West of Auburn and is 5 to 6 miles off I-85, exit 51. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is so close to Auburn University. We have never experience tailgating there but I'm sure it's quite a sight. We stayed here when we dropped our daughter off at school. It had everything we needed, level site, water, and sewer. We stayed in a site near the road, no trees, no gravel, a grass site. There are other sites available with more amenities, shade, etc. There is a train track nearby, can be a little noise but the AC drowns out the sound. Super nice staff, they are very accommodating. We will stay there again during football season and will report back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As someone else said, currently this park exists for one thing only: Auburn football. We came because the website looked so good. They do have great plans and in a few years this will be a very nice destination. The owners are indeed very friendly and helpful. But the office being located in the back of the park is not so convenient. I could not find any restrooms (not that I needed them, but they were not obvious), and I did not see any playground equipment. Only 2 of the sites were paved. Most were gravel and the majority are back-in. There is a very active railroad track less than 100 yards from the front of the park. Trains came by every few hours day and night. Probably from the back of the park, this would not have been so noticeable. Overall, this is very much a work in progress. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent RV Park. The pros of this park are easy access, clean restrooms, Wi-Fi, very affordable, and extremely accommodating owners. There are many different areas to choose from in this park, some are shady, some have grass, some are in the open without trees and there are pull through lots as well. This park also has new restrooms being built by fall 2010 with heated tile floors. Paved entrance roads and a new development with more lots in a shady and natural environment are also coming by 2010. The office has been recently relocated for more convenience for the guest. The owner was so nice to help my husband get things set up since we are new campers and asked for help. We will definitely be back to camp with University Station RV Resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have rated it higher except for the fact there is no cable and inadequate restrooms. This resort is built essentially for one thing: Auburn football. Soon there will be over 250 sites and many of them are booked in advance for the football season. According to the owner the rest of the year is not that busy. We stayed out toward the front. So, our dish worked. That was important since there is no cable TV. In the back, no doubt, the trees would block a signal. The bathroom was essentially a shed. The door to the woman's side was blocked shut by a piece of PVC pipe. I would say that this is a stop over place, not a destination. We stayed 3 nights so that I could tour Auburn University, where I went to college. The owners are very nice, but you rate the park, not the owners. I doubt I would stay again unless I can get tickets to an Auburn game. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay at this park located less than 10 miles off I-85 at exit 51. A nice, well kept RV Park. The owner was very accommodating and checked on us several times. We have and will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A GREAT park. We stayed here for a football game and not only enjoyed the park but also met some really nice Auburn Tiger fans. The only reason this park did not rate a 10 was the dusty roads. The owner had his crew watering the roads but there was so much traffic, it didn't last long. He couldn't do enough to be sure everyone there was pleased. If you're ever passing near or staying in Auburn, you'll enjoy this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great new park located two miles from Auburn University. It is especially great for tailgaters on ballgame weekends since it has a shuttle bus to and from the Auburn Tigers football games. There is a city bike trail adjacent to the park and a convenience store on the property. The park allows golf carts to cruise the developed areas of the 100 plus acre resort. A play area with picnic tables is currently being built for campers. This was a very nice experience. The tailgating community is very friendly and the service of the owner is outstanding. We camped here in a Motorhome.
