PA discount is reflected in rate. Park is in pleasant, safe feeling countryside area. Nice parking lot style park, well maintained, clean, quiet except for distant traffic of I-10. Small trees needing time to grow. Park is surrounded by trees, so the distant viewscape is pleasant. Gravel roads, sand and grass, mostly level sites. Utilities worked well. Internet good (some slow page loads and occasional disconnects) and TV antenna reception very good. Accommodating, friendly staff. Lots of dog walking areas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Passport America rate, cash. Well maintained park and helpful campground staff. Nice large pull-through sites even for the largest rigs with multiple slideouts. We just used this park as an overnight stop while traveling. We didn't bother to hook up water. Good Wi-Fi even though we were far from the office. Good over the air TV reception. One sharp turn getting to the campground, but certainly manageable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were greeted and shown to a site by a very friendly resident of the campground. The office was open 8-5 on the day we were there. Most of the sites with any shade appear to be occupied by long term residents. The park was very clean and neat. Our site had a very nice, level concrete pad for the coach and adjacent patio. The sites are very large. Most sites are grass and it appears that they are adding new concrete parking/patio pads. Hookups were in excellent condition and well placed. Wi-Fi worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rates reflect PA. Stopped by for 2 nights. Easy off and on the interstate. They like you to call when you get off the interstate to meet you at the entrance and escort you to your site. Sites are large and grassy with a few concrete sites. Owners personally involved and friendly and helpful. We camped in a 5th wheel. There are a few permanent FT residents but campground doesn't have that feel. Sites are clean and well maintained. Would recommend campground. Didn't use laundry but had plenty of machines. Office is friendly and campers congregate in the mornings for coffee. Great internet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects PA. Great little campground for overnight or longer. Very easy on and off the interstate. They meet you at the gate and bring you to your site. Sites are fairly level. Roads are gravel and site is grass. Sites are large. Good utilities including excellent Wi-Fi. They are still adding amenities to this park and will be very nice when completed. Personal service by the owners in this park is very refreshing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
At the time we stayed at the campground, it was primarily filled with a small number of permanent residents and mostly snowbirds. Parking is on a pretty level grass field with full hookups. The sites are quite large with lots of room to pull in and out. Restrooms were very nice. Has a homey feel to the place. Free coffee and a card game in the community room daily. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Azalia The park is some what level with very spacious sites on grass/dirt. A high point is the nice community building which houses the bath/showers, office, laundry, etc. The showers get a 10+ and are a model for other parks to duplicate. Wi-Fi is super but we were on site 17, directly under the antenna. The hosts were nice and the park was 50% filled to date with winter guests. They like for you to call when you get off I-10, exit 53, so they can meet you at the gate and lead you to the site they have for you. I prefer to visit the office first and review site options. The laundry required $2.50 for a washer which we thought was high. We had lunch at the Derailed Dinner at exit 53 which has a very nice menu and good food. We were limited to 2 days only at the PA rate, a recent change which we informed of when we called. There are 3 other RV parks in the immediate area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is easily accessible from I-10, facilities are exceptionally clean. The people who work here are friendly and helpful. Someone shows you to your site, and makes sure you are parked and ready to hook-up before he leaves. This rate is the Passport rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed there for 8 days and it was a very enjoyable stay. We enjoyed our trips into Foley and Robertsdale. Especially to the train museum and to a Buffet in the old Armory. I think it was called Harvest house. Near by at the I-10 exit there is a train themed restaurant Derailed Diner which has good food. The sites were spaced far enough to give quiet a bit of privacy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
While not a destination park, it would be if they added a pool. Hosts are great. Only negatives are the gun range that is near by and its noise during the day and the lack of shade trees. Trees will come with age. The WiFi is very good. Sites are grass but level. We will stay here again. Map shows exact location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is monthly rate, including electricity . Owners and staff are definite 10. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. All permanent guests treat you like family. Sites are huge, and concrete pads will be added. Picnic tables at all sites. Even though parking on grass, after rainstorm left 3 inches of rain, it immediately soaked into ground, leaving no paddles after rain stopped. Sites are level, and well groomed. Great place to spend night or months. We camped in a fifth-wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner and camp host were very helpful and friendly. The camp host met us at the entrance and escorted us to our site. The site was reasonably level, gravel and grass. Park is basically an open field, which would get pretty muddy if it rained any appreciable amount. While a little way off the main road, it actually is adjacent to the freeway, so there is road noise. It's good for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Whether you are just passing through or staying long term this is a great park. The owner and staff are the nicest that I've ever met. This is a no frills RV park, no cable TV, no swimming pool, no bingo nights, although there is a movie night. But the sites are spacious. You can probably fit 2 5ers end to end and fit 2-3 5ers in between 2 sites after your slides are out. There are only a few sites with a nice thick concrete pad with more coming in the future. For the most part you are on a very thin layer of grass. I was here when it had a downpour. You would think it should have flooded the place but there was no problem and the next morning after a couple of hours of sunshine the ground was firm and good to walk on. I really like this park because it is very quiet and peaceful. There were no rowdy characters around. The park owner and staff are super friend and very easy going. Although the rule says that you should leave the garbage out by 10am for pickup but I see people leaving their garbage out as late as 2 or 3pm and they still picked it up. Leave your propane out and they will come and fill it up for you and put it back next to your rv. The water pressure and quality is fantastic. Electricity is steady. There is even a strong 4G signal if you have Verizon, or you can use the park's wifi. To cap it all off the park was a great deal. It is only $15/day with PA, and great monthly rates that include electric. There is great shopping close by. It is a short drive to the Gulf Shore beaches, great BBQ joints (especially L.A. bbq), and Joe Patti's seafood market where you can get a wide variety of fresh seafood at very reasonable price. This would be a great place for a rally. I would come back just to stay for a couple of months. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice large sites, friendly hosts, and a well kept laundry room. Good Wi-Fi at park, AT&T works great as well. We stayed here for 4 nights in a 40 footer. Friendly hosts, garbage pickup at curb. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for three nights for $45. Passport Rate Staff friendly and helpful. Grass sites, but very nice, wide spaces. It was a pleasure to not be cramped close to another RV with slide-outs. We have 3 slide-outs. Wish it weren't quite so far out of Mobile. (Our son lives there.) Otherwise, it was a very pleasant stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed overnight at this nice RV park. The park host was the best! Very friendly and helpful. He recommended the Derailed Diner for dinner and even provided a ride over there to pick up our carryout order so that we didn't have to unhook our truck from the 5th wheel. The chicken fried steak was fantastic! The site we had was a concrete slab and level. The bathroom/shower was very modern and immaculate. The internet connection was very strong. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is about three years old. Managers are very helpful. Most sites are on grass with with small trees. Wi-Fi is very good. All sites have a picnic table and some sites have concrete pads to park rigs. They try to put overnighters on the concrete pads to ease setups. They have the cleanest bathrooms and laundry ($2.50 to wash) facilities I have seen in a long time. Easy on and off I-10 for an overnighter. They are within 25 miles of Mobile and its tourist attractions. Price reflects PA. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice, quiet campground with all the amenities. The managers were extremely nice and friendly. They even ran us into town to pick up some food! We recommend this location simply because of the nice people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just stopped in here overnight, There are 2 other parks really close but we chose this one because we requested and they had several concrete pads. There's no shade to speak of; the park has only been here 3 years but there's lots of space between the sites and it was clear weather. Don't know how the grassy sites would be in rainy weather. Plenty of open area to walk the dogs: just clean up after them. Even some goats in a nearby pasture that my dogs (who'd never seen goats) found quite interesting. We'd called in advance and we were taken promptly to our site: even before I checked in. They honor Passport America but because of the low rate charged, be prepared to use a debit card or pay cash: they don't want a credit card. An excellent place to stay just east of Mobile, AL and west of Pensacola and close to shopping in Robertsdale and Foley and not too far from the Gulf Coast beaches. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly new park with new trees and no shade yet. The hosts and the owner went out of their way to be welcoming and to make sure we were satisfied. The only minus right now is that the roads need to be smoothed and graveled all the way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Passport America. Very large sites, mainly grass. Very clean and well kept. I agree with previous posts on everything except WiFi was good. Does not have pool or playground but everything else we like. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has everything needed to stop at for however long you need. Lots of space, wide open grassy lots, and quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. They will pick up your trash daily and take your propane bottles for refill and return them to your site. I loved this place and will plan on coming back for longer next year. Water pressure was great along with great electric. Only downside to me was no fenced in dog walk area, and no cable. Otherwise great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Daily fee for monthly rates. Park is centrally located between Mobile and Pensacola and has lots to see and do in local area. Park has large sites with some pads. Has all regular amenities but need to be near the main club house for a stronger Wi-Fi signal. Laundry facilities are very good. Owner/Staff are friendly and the club house/washrooms are very nice. No real Park activities except monthly dinner. Good for dogs with local trails to go for walks. Has nearby truck stop/restaurant, easy access on/off I-10. We would return again as this park is excellent value with great location for winter stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very clean campground. The staff was very friendly. Some noise from the gun range but not after dark. Rate is PA rate, and we would stay again. Easy off the interstate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff is kind and friendly. The grounds are tidy and clean. The park and guests are quiet. The sites are large and grassy. A few have cement pads. We did not use the laundry while here. The park is in a peaceful rural setting close to the freeway and surrounded by woods. The woods provide a good barrier against the freeway noise and keep it minimal. There is good dog walking in the woods on the trails as well as on the access road to the park. There are two drawbacks. First, there is a skeet shooting range on the other side of the freeway. Second, would be the dirt roads and all grass sites. The latter did not bother us, but listening to guns all weekend did. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown Passport America discount. Site was a grass pull through. Some sites have concrete pads. Plenty of room for any size of rig. Friendly owner and staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Free coffee every morning in the clubhouse. Modern, clean laundry. Beautiful clean restrooms. WiFi worked well most of the time, but occasionally cut out. No cable TV, but plenty of channels off the antenna. Walking trails in the back of the park. Some traffic noise from the Interstate. Rifle range on the opposite side of the Interstate with gunfire busy at times; only noticed it outside our rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night on our way to Sarasota. It is an adult campground kids can visit and stay no more than two weeks. Easy on/off from I-10. We would stay again if the opportunity arises. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent location. Five minutes from I-10. The park was very clean. We were met at the entrance and escorted to our concrete pad. Not all of the lots have concrete pads, but the ground was very hard. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was a great stop over on our route west. I would use this location anytime that I need a break. The PA rate was $14.45. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects the Passport America rate. This is a nice park that is fairly new. They are adding concrete pads, and there are some that are finished. The Wi-Fi was fast, and worked well. The laundry is the best we've seen, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Given, time, the trees will mature, and there will be shaded spots, but not yet. Kind of a remote location, but worked well for our overnight, between New Orleans, and the Florida panhandle. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with the previous reviews. We also had called ahead and were met by the Hosts. The sites are on grass and when there is rain, they do hold the water. Because of the sand base, the water does drain well when the rain stops. They are adding gravel as revenues allow. They have a very nice recreation room with kitchen, fridge, a book exchange and satellite TV. There are several long term campers on site and they are located to the side away from sites used for travelers. There is a fishing lake about 2.5 miles from the camp where you can fish for $4.00 a day. We will use this as an overnight in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owner was very nice in having the hosts meet and greet us at the entrance. We were taken to our site and was told to get set up then come in and pay, she also let us know that we could wait until the morning to take care of payment. We were then shown around the community room which has a wonderful kitchen, book exchange, Direct TV, also games and puzzles. Laundry facility was the best I have ever seen and as far as the showers, restrooms amazingly awesome. They have the most spacious sites, that you have so much room your not on top of one another. They simply go out of there way to make you feel at home.I was so pleased with the friendliness of the owner/workers in which made you feel so welcomed like family that I would most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Good value with Passport America, they also have good weekly and monthly rates. The previous 10's are high for this place, but the people here do get solid 10's as do the facilities (laundry, bath, rec hall). I would go higher if we had a slab. Place is working on becoming a 10: they are adding a few slabs a year and that would make a big difference. After a night of rain our site was real messy when we got ready to leave. It is a new park and they are doing a great job. Wi-Fi here was good, our Verizon cells worked ok, but broadband would have been a problem. So the Wi-Fi was much needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been on a 6-week vacation and recently enrolled in a discount campground membership club and decided to try it out. One of the campgrounds on our route was Azalea Acres. It was just off the interstate and were we surprised when we pulled on the property. Very nice campground: clean, well lit, the facilities were immaculate. Best of all the campground host was a really nice guy. Met us at our assigned spot, and greeted us to see if there was anything we needed. If you are in route to anywhere, we recommend this park. Would we go back? You betcha! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This fairly new park has the cleanest showers and restrooms anywhere in the country! The owner and camp host were both extremely nice and helpful. We didn't like the sand roads or sandy spots. Several spots have concrete, ours did not. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am back and loving the park. The snowbirds are friendly and fun. The activities we have going on are great. I'll be sad to see folks go. The flowers, trees,shrubs and grass are all blooming and getting green. The park allows families or grand kids for up to 2 weeks. If you are traveling through the area don't miss a good location and good friendly staff or we'll just keep having fun without you! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park - extremely friendly and welcoming owner, work campers and guests. Brand new restroom, laundry and activity building. Some concrete pads, the rest are grass. We pulled in New Years Day and were immediately greeted by many full-timers and invited to a great New Years dinner. Recommended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hill Top Large park, plenty of room, easy access, great showers and a $1.50 laundry. Showers are well equipped and maintained. Only problem is the triangular corner stool is not fastened to the wall and will tilt if you put your foot on it. I had a problem getting connected on WiFi at the far NE corner of park but manager reset the system and I got on. Manager came by to check on my status. Strongest signal will be down the center line of the park as there is an antenna at the office and in the rear center. Modest number of TV channels which can be a blessing. Near by truck stop with diner is worthy of a visit. We stayed here 2 days. PA rate was $17 which is $18.53 total including tax. Regular rack rate is $26 + tax so there is a conflict with Pass Port’s claim of 50% discount. The number I put in the rate box is the total $, rounded, that it cost me to stay at that park. Some parks have low rates but then charge for all the “extras” such as 50A, WiFi, Cable, and so on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time at this park, as we have always before stayed at a neighboring one. We were pleasantly surprised. It is very pleasant, has a nice laundry room, and the people in the office were very friendly and helpful. It is well kept. This is the Passport America price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great overnight stop east of Mobile. Easy to find, Good gravel roads and grass sites. Staff is very friendly. Quiet. Probably would work well as a base for vacationing or working in Mobile area. Will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Yes it is out of the way, off the beaten path easy access off I-10; an easy toad commute to Mobile, Foley, and Pensacola. BUT it is very quiet and secure. It is an adult park only which as empty nester we prefer, there are no children running around & park rules are very strict and limiting on their visits. There is nothing here to entertain RV'ers but after the full days we spent out in the area attractions we did not miss that. Grass sites are level and there is plenty of space between rigs. Apparently people live here; we really never talked to a soul our 5 day stay; most visitors are out and about as we were. Either Wi-Fi was not working or it was not strong enough to pick up; used our Verizon broadband. The only draw back is that there is nothing close other than the truck stop/gas station off I-10. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here three days thinking it would be convenient to the Gulf Shores area as well as Pensacola. Both were a bit of a hike, though worth the time. (Naval Air Museum in Pensacola is fabulous and the Gulf Shores is very pretty though touristy). The park itself is bare bones necessity, FHU and not much else. WI-FI worked "OK". No cable but enough digital antenna stations. Spots are very generous in length and grass (which was either dry and dusty or muddy). There is really no where to walk, or ride your bike, or go out to eat (closest would be a truck stop) so we pretty much headed out in the morning and did not return before dinner. Never met the owners; a camp worker checked us in after we were already hooked up. Rate was PA (which was weird because the advertised regular rate is $27, and our neighbor commented that they had paid $25/night so I don't know where the $18 came from). We would return only as a stopover if necessary. We drove by another park on the way to Gulf Shores, and I wish we had stayed there instead. Much closer to the shore and equally close to Pensacola. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed a month (rate is monthly w/tax) through the holidays and were very pleased. Good utilities, strong fast WiFi, good Verizon signal. Good laundry. Restrooms clean. Staff is friendly and helpful and the snowbirds staying for the winter were super friendly and helpful. We have a 40ft mh and had no trouble navigating, just take your time. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$290 a month. We stayed here two months and loved it. Loved our hosts and made many new friends. There are people who live here year round. Everyone was so friendly but if you want to be left alone they respect that also. Lots of fun road trips. Our host went above and beyond any information we ask for. She was amazing. We plan on going back next year. This is so central located and the rate is so good. Near FL near cost and near Mobile. A fun fun winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time here. Last was Nov. 09 and what a difference the time of year makes. In 09, the place was nearly empty, in Feb it's nearly packed. They found room for us just the same and honored PA to boot. Free functioning WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at this site after a very bad experience with our last RV park and were treated very, very nice and accommodated. We had a very nice site by very caring nice people, it really brightened our day, which we greatly needed. I would highly recommend Hilltop to all, a great place, very quiet and very friendly people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects the Passport America rate. Friendly staff, centrally located between Pensacola, Mobile and Gulf Shores. Sites could hold us and the paved roads are a little tight, but workable. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America Daily Rate. Park is located just off I-10 and is good value for PA or monthly rate. Wi-Fi is very good but no cable TV is available. Washrooms were OK but needed to be cleaned a little better. Has many activities, and you are greeted by friendly staff. Sites are mostly pull through with grass or gravel, but if you have a really big rig it can be a bit tight. Lots to see or do in area, and would be a good choice for an extended stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice family owned and operated campground with owner on site. Adult park with community room, laundry facilities, paved streets and gravel sites. Quiet country setting. I would stay here again if I were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is simply not for big rigs! Narrow paved roads and numerous towed vehicles impinging on traffic. Also the normal "exit" is padlocked until 7 AM.. Other than the above comments the park appears to be a very nice adult park. The Wi-Fi was excellent. Our rate was based on P.A. discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport Rate. Good location just off of I-10. Good value at $16. Very friendly staff. Not for Big Rigs! We only made it to our site because someone moved there car. Narrow paved roads that more suitable for golf carts. We were told we would have to exit back out of the entrance when we left. Our site was all grass and we only stayed two nights. The price and location give it a 7 rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located off the interstate somewhat, however a nice place to do an overnight. I would stay here again. The place felt very secure. A great host checked us in and was very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found Hill Top in our Camp Club USA book. We had planned to visit to another campground nearby; it was awful and we did not stay. It was 9pm when we arrived, unannounced at Hill Top. Despite the office having closed at 7pm, the owner came out to greet and help us to our campsite. The next morning, we went to the office to handle our check-in and pay. We were thrilled with the personal attention that we received. They also provided us with their weekly and monthly rates. We have been full-time since October '08; however had only stayed in one place for up to two weeks. We were so impressed with the monthly rate ($275 for 30 amp including electric, water, sewer, and Wi-Fi) that we decided to commit to the month of June. I travel with a service dog and in many places this can prove to be difficult because most people do not know about service animals other than seeing-eye dogs. Typically, I dread the conversation because it creates such hardships. I was relieved that these two owners were interested in learning more and had a true desire to help make our stay, along with my service dog, an enjoyable experience. This park has bathhouses, laundry and a nice large room that is set-up like a living room and has a lending library. We were invited to come sit with a group to watch the races. the Wi-Fi signal is very strong, even on the farthest end of the park. This is a great place for either an over-night stop or a long-term stay. I am very happy. In talking with other residents, they are also happy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This adult park has friendly staff but no ambiance. It has large pull-through sites, a very small game room, and a decent, clean laundry facility with 4-5 washers and dryers. The full-time residents keep to themselves. The owners' dogs are the only dogs permitted to be left outside unattended (in a fenced yard). Unfortunately, they bark quite a bit at anything that moves. Hilltop now belongs to Passport America. For $12/$13 a night, it's not bad as a stop-over. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a serviceable overnight stop off of I-10. I sure wouldn't want to stay any longer. It is just a lot with no trees or any other natural interest, filled with RVs (lots of full timers in various states). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a truly wonderful stay at Hilltop RV Park. The separate bathrooms and laundry facilities were spotless and convenient; gated security and strictly enforced park rules removed any unwanted intrusions; the park hosts were super friendly and eager to make our stay a pleasure; all hookups, the free Wi-Fi, and excellent TV reception were all far better than expected. All asphalt roads, huge spacious slots with trees and a game room where everyone congregates, made this park one of the most welcoming we've ever visited. We had fun! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The managers clique sits in the Game room every morning and evening. In the evenings there is lots of drinking and card playing. No Shade, far from anything. I will stay at Wilderness or Styxx next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this park. t is right off of I-10. The only downfall was it wasn't really close to town. Other than that, it was a nice clean park. They are adding more spots as we speak. The park has paved roads with grave sites and grass. Each site has a picnic table also. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Kind of a Mom and Pop operation. No trees and rather expensive for the things offered. No children allowed (except temporarily). A couple of RV's were parked that looked like they had seen better days (looked like an extend stay). If you want a sleeping place I would pick Wal-Mart parking lot over this $19 a night RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small but very nice campground right on the Styx river. Nice concrete pads. Very quiet CG. Our rate indicates an RPI membership. Just here for 2 nights but would spend more time here in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, convenient to the Interstate, but very secluded and quiet. The sites are long, level, concrete pads with a concrete patio if your door happens to be in the right place (ours was not). Camp hosts were great, and the private bathroom/shower rooms are probably the nicest and cleanest we've ever encountered. The park is along the Styx River, with a covered pavilion right on the river; some sites back up to the river. The nearby Derailed Diner (in the truck stop) was also quite good. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy off I-10. Small very clean park. Nice for walking our two large dogs. Off main road very little road noise. Level cement pads. We had a pull through that was long enough for a 40' bus and toad. Nice owners, would stay here again. We only stayed one night but good spot for a longer stay. As you are driving to the park know that there is another "membership" park before you get to this park. Rated 9 instead of 10 because no camp store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been camping here for 3 years now. It has always been a wonderful experience. The campgrounds and washrooms are always nice and clean. The $30.00 is a little steep but we don't mind because our children love the park. HOWEVER, since the first of this year, the owner now oversees this park instead of the previous host ( who was wonderful). This owner charges a rate of $30.00 for 2 adults and 2 children. We have 6 children! He now charges us $50.00/night. Any day guest we have over, is also an additional $5.00 a head plus $5.00 a vehicle! Our children & these guest do not require any more electricity, we are always in the river or outside our rv. My grandmother came down to bring us some ice and he chased her down on his golfcart and charged her $5.00 to come in. That was ridiculous. Maybe it's because the beaches are pretty much out of commission and people are looking elsewhere to go & he knows this or he wants to maintain an extremely clean park, but it sounds like greed to me. We can stay across town and have WiFi and water access for $13.00/night, so Mr. owner, don't alienate the ones who helped build your business! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The most beautiful park I have ever stayed at! Super friendly and helpful staff, peaceful and quiet and right on Styx River. Its right past Styx River Resort and I preferred it over all other parks I have camped. Showers and restrooms including washer/dryer area are well kept! Additional things to do are being added daily and with the "old West Saloon" clubhouse, it feels like home. I highly recommend staying here for the above reasons. I give this park an AAAAA+++++!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Of the utmost importance is the washrooms. They are private shower/washrooms, and they are immaculate! Next on the list is friendliness of staff: They were very pleasant and helpful. The campground was clean and quiet. Nice big level cement pads, and we were allowed to choose which site we wanted. There is no pool, but the river kind of wraps around the campground, so it's a pleasant setting. Wi-fi worked great! No hidden fees. Allowed our adult children to visit overnight at no extra charge. Finding the campground was the only part that we found challenging. We had good directions, but the street-sign for Waterworld street was hard to see. Maybe a sign at that corner would help. We will visit here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park located right on the Styx River. The management was great. Very hospitable and friendly. With a pool and some shade, would definitely rate a 10. They'll give you a ride to tube the river and get off right at the campground. That's a great feature, as you don't want to leave your car unattended in the woods for 4-5 hours. Highly recommend and I will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
New park. Good manager. NO SHADE!! No pool. No playground. But the Styx River is FINE. Tubing and playing in the sand. Shallow, good current. Shaded at riverside. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, quiet, level and clean park. We stayed four nights and had family visit us two of the evenings without any problems. This park is new and very clean. Bill, the manager, is extremely helpful and will even run you up river to tube. It is almost at the Florida border on Interstate 10 (exit 53). We would return when visiting family in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were given 3 days at this campground by Camping World for free for buying a motorhome from them. The campground has sand and gravel sites. It has 2 swimming pools. One inside which is very nice and one outside. We used the inside one everytime due to our grandkids. The resort has a nature trail down to the river. It is maintained by the resort after heavy rains. The down side of the resort is that they try and sell you a membership into Ocean Canyon Properties for between $7500 and up. We spoke to a member and he stated that he wanted to sell his membership due to the fact that he was mislead by the properties because of the Guntersville show place resort. He thought that they were all the same. NOT! Styx River has been planning on doing many upgrades, but just never got around to doing them. I would NOT stay here if I had to pay, it is that bad. The restroom were dirty and HOT! No A/C in restrooms or showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is greatly improved since becoming a part of Ocean Canyon properties. Still some sites are tight, roads need upgradin,g and they are in process of removing old rundown long time trailers and buildings. Both indoor and outdoor pools were clean as well as rec hall. Friendly and helpful staff. We definitely will return as Coast to Coast members if improvements continue as promised. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an Ocean Canyon Properties park, and although the other 2 we have visited seem to have it together, this one is lacking. Trash seems to be a huge issue here. Our site had it's fair share of broken glass, beer bottle caps, sucker sticks, candy wrappers, etc. Sadly it doesn't end with just the camp sites, my husband and I spent over an hour picking up trash along the “nature” walk filling a 35 gallon trash can with everything from “to-go” food cartons to beer / soda bottles and cans. It is painfully obvious their maintenance has a problem. The bath house near the clubhouse and swimming pools is done in a rough stucco which is nearly impossible to keep clean, that would be if they even bothered to try. Both the men's and women's showers are design for people under 5 foot tall. The bath house near the cabin area shows the same cleanliness as the pool bathhouse and designed for taller individuals. The one near the church is closed and it does not appear they have any intention of re-opening it. Laundry Facilities are newer washers and dryers, cost is $1.75 to wash and $1.25 to dry. The indoor swimming pool left a nasty, oily film in my hair. I have seen cleaner water in a bath tub after a bath than what was in the hot tub. It appeared someone had dumped soap or bubbles in it and maintenance refuses to drain, clean, and refill it. Sale personnel at this facility are unfriendly and flat out rude. We encountered a number of them and not one would give us the time of day, one even went so far as to nearly splash us after a heavy rain. Although this is an OCP park, do not let that fool you; there are a number of “perms”. Site level varies from fairly level to “no way” am I parking there. The majority of sites are 30 amp; they do have a few 50 amp sites. We would stay here again. Rate shown is C2C. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Since we became members at OCP, Styx has gone under a lot of improvements, and will continue to be. We can't wait to see how the park looks when it is all said and done. It is looking better each time we visit. Concrete blocks need to be fixed up, especially. But Styx is a very fun park with lots of things to do, and we love how close it is to the ocean. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The sites are smaller than average but that just means you get to know your neighbors! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were invited to stay here on a promotion to join Ocean Canyon Properties. This park used to be a KOA dating back many years before large RVs had slide outs. OCP is obviously investing in the property by leveling the sites, installing additional 50 AMP sites, remodeling the lodge and enlarging the sites. Currently the streets can be congested, and the sites small. There is an indoor pool as well as outdoor pool, many activities, and friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again and look forward to seeing the improvements. This is a Coast to Coast property, reservations are needed. We liked the fact that we were greeted at the gate and taken around the property to pick our location before we pulled our trailer through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was very friendly and Wi-Fi works well. As noted in previous reviews, the roads are narrow and curvy. The sites narrow and some of the concrete pads in poor repair. I would rate this higher except for the yappy dogs which owners seemed to make no effort to quiet. We stayed AOR. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground very shabby. Concrete pads broken up and sticking out of ground; not very comfortable sites. Pool was great and very nice size. Hot tub was broken and indoor pool looked dirty. Overall you get what you pay for and this was free because we took a sales tour with Ocean Properties. The amount of money they wanted was as much as we spent on our rig. It seems if they were selling any memberships they would fix the campgrounds up. We were packed like sardines in a can. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed as ROD and was assigned worst site ever in a CG. ROD members get the worst sites. We risked damage as we exited the campsite. Horrible roads, narrow, potholes, drainage dips, VERY tight turns, near to impossible for big rigs. Unfriendly staff. Only give it a 2 because 30amp power is steady, and they pick up garbage at site. Don't come here if you are ROD members! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Can't answer the previous posts about sales tactics. We are RoD members, so we were able to skip that part. We will, however, ditto the tight roads, but we managed with a 38' MH. Nice folks at check-in and nice neighbors too. Spaces are tight, but again manageable. We stayed with our RoD membership. Free with $3 for 50A elec. Free WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very narrow winding roads inside the campground, a little tough to maneuver in some spots. The site we were assigned was mostly mud with some sand. It was not level and a provided picnic table would have required seat belts to be safe. We did not stay. We were here as part of a membership promotion which I would not recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, well kept campground. Pretty much stays full, but quiet and everyone seems to always be pleasant. Just a couple of minutes from I-10. Restaurant inside. Indoor/outdoor pool. Membership is required. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This park should be fantastic with it's location on the Styx River. It has recently been purchased by a company that is selling memberships. They are promising many improvements. The problem is there "sales" techniques sucker you into a 2 hour presentation with the promise of a free night's stay. They don't tell you that you have to buy the $7000 membership to get the free night. Personally, I had better things to do with my time off than listen to a bunch of promises. It's a typical scam, bait and switch operation that give the whole industry a bad name. There's quite a few other campgrounds in the immediate area. Don't fall for this old routine. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First the bad. As a prior poster noted, when I arrived I asked to be able to get a site with satellite view and was told "No problem with this site". I was parked directly under a tree. There is a loud noise coming from the AC units behind the clubhouse and it runs all day and all night. It sounds like a band saw at idle. The roads are narrow and could use an upgrade. Very difficult to get a big rig around the corners. The Good - Sites are long and level. The facilities are good. Excellent pool and hot tub. Snack bar is reasonable. Prior ROD members didn't have much good to say but get the AC noise fixed and it's a pretty nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is a little bit remote, we found it to be a bit rustic and it does require one to drive a little further than we like for grocery stores, shopping or sightseeing. The park itself is an older park but appears to be well maintained. We were greeted by a friendly staff and enjoyed our stay here. There are several activities each day, a on-site cafe and good amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here was top notch both in professionalism and in friendliness. When you first enter the park, it advises that you make wide turns and it is important to follow this advice as the roads are a bit difficult to maneuver in a big rig. The sites were level with gravel. The inside pool and hot tub were nicely maintained. We enjoyed our visit here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As many have said very narrow, But a good 4 or 5 night campground. ROD Site are short this beeing a old K O A. We pull a small trailer and had to disconnect. Site level w/pad. Very clean w/ indoor pool and hot tub, used all but could not get sauna hot. Great adult room. Gun club just down the street so day time noise. We will go back We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made reservations, asking three times whether we would be able to shoot the satellite for internet access, as we both work via the internet. We repeatedly asked about internet dish access because it is so difficult to get people to listen past "satellite dish" to hear "internet" when most people mean TV. We were assured that we'd have no problem. We got there and were given a site where shooting south meant shooting directly into a clump of trees. No way it could work. And no other spots could, either. Management just claimed they assigned sites by length only. Someone lied on one end or the other. To top it off, a very loud amplified band started playing ten minutes after we got there not fifty feet from the site they'd assigned us. We left after a long day, needing some rest. Thank God Wilderness was right down the road. This is a case of getting what one pays for. (ROD=no charge) It's a pretty park, but we won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big clubhouse. Pool was nice. There was a small cafe. Downside - you must circle around the clubhouse to enter and exit. While making this circle you go over a couple of speed bumps - everything shifted in the motorhome! The roads were loose dirt and narrow. The first site we were at was next to an electrical box and it interfered with the satellite signal. We stayed under ROD so no charge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a gated & private campground available to Coast to Coast or RPI members. The roadways are VERY narrow, we were able to manuver our 40 foot Class 'A' but just barely. Sites are dirt w/concrete patio' & picnic tables. Lots of trees and very quiet. They have an indoor pool & spa as well as an outdoor pool & spa. There is a large club house with areas for both famlies & adults. They have a restaurant which is open on the weekends and is reported to have good food. There are some permanent residents here in RV's as well as Park Model type trailers. The park is about 25 miles east of Mobile, 30 miles North of Gulf Shores and 25 miles west of Pensacola which made it very convenient for sight seeing & visiting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older park. Not really set up for big rigs. Hard to maneuver. Hard to get a satellite signal due to all the trees. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Indoor and outdoor pools. Lots of activities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Coast to Coast Park located fairly close to the Gulf Shores area. The sites are fair, not paved and somewhat unlevel. The park itself is very nice with tons of activities every day. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here 3 nights. Suited us great. Bathrooms old but clean and functional. Very convenient to I-10 but quiet. Internet spotty, kept getting kicked off. Would definitely stay here again. Had level pull through site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had been here before a few years back. It's a C2C park hence the $10 rate. Sites are level and grassy. Roads do need some work. Good electricity, Direct TV and AT&T both good. The gentleman who checked us in was a hoot. We stayed here in a 40 footer with 3 slides: had plenty of room. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Let's get the roads out of the way 1st - we were there during a dry spell and yes, the roads need work, but an RV park isn't for speed demons anyhow! Park is quiet and comfortable. Level grassy pull through sites with plenty of room for slides. Good DirecTv and AT&T reception. We would stay here again. Rate is Coast 2 Coast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park over all is a great place to stay. The people their are very nice and helpful. The sites are level and have a lot of room. The roads need some work they are rough in places. The Wi-Fi works in places, we had no trouble getting on. We will stay again at this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week on our way to Florida. We had come cross country from California. We picked this CG because it was rated C2C Deluxe, $10 rate and we were tired. Not sure where DELUXE fits here, but the internal roads were very bumpy, with some tree limbs hanging pretty low. The so called HOT TUB or whirlpool was absolutely disgusting with green water and debris. Even the local frogs would not use it. The pool was borderline usable. The pool furniture could have used a major cleaning. The Laundry room consisted of 2 washing machines in a shed for the whole CG. The gentleman who checked us in(I believe owner) was less than friendly, but was courteous. The store did have some items for sale. I gave it a 2, because the sites were flat and large. We will not return, unless I see favorable write-ups. (FYI: Thank you for contacting Coast to Coast regarding your concerns about the Wilderness RV Park. We are sorry that you have experienced disappointment with this resort. Also, we have requested that Woodall's visit this campground for rating purposes. To my knowledge Woodall's has not reclassified this CG.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pleasant park, for either short term or long term. The only real issue is the interior roads which are dirt and not graded. The ruts and potholes were pretty bad and required very slow driving. Wi-Fi is available at clubhouse otherwise internet is non-existent. The park is well organized. The staff are friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The biggest problem, was the roads inside the park. They were red clay (dirt) and very rough and rutted. You could see where water had run down the roads and eroded the roads. They say they have WiFi but we were told it didn't work. Sites were leveled, but crowned. I will drive further the next time, and do not plan to stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for one night on our way west. The park over all was very run down. The restroom very much needed some work done on it. The swimming pool was out of order, and the hot tub was down, been down for months. There was piles of trash on the grounds. We will not be staying there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Basically a nice place to stay as long as you are "self contained". If you rely on the communal facilities you may be disappointed. We found the sites to be nice and level, but being dirt roads we can imagine that on wet days they can be not so nice. Entry to the park was OK. The exit looks rather bumpy and un-even. We don't anticipate having problems with excessively sharp corners or overhanging branches. A long way to the nearest supermarket (12-14 miles or thereabouts) so shop before you get here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WE DID NOT STAY AT THIS PARK. On Tuesday, June 2, 2009 we stop in to talk about a monthly rate. The staff gave us the rates and told us we could drive through the park and look it over. Well that was a mistake. The roads are dirt and have bad washouts. We where in our car; we would never bring our coach to a place like that. The tree limbs over the roadway were so low we could not have gotten our coach in the park without damaging it. We where looking to stay about two weeks, but after seeing the park we moved on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[REVIEWER DID NOT STAY AT PARK] We called Wilderness RV Park. We found it in CampClubUSA for 1/2 price. It sounded good based on 3 star Woodall rating; pool, hot tub, bathhouse, WiFi, etc. We called & made arrangements; the office closes at 6pm. We were to arrive at 7:30pm, & they were to leave an envelope on the door of the office with a map of the property & a note as to what site we will be on. Well, we got there, and there was no envelope, no map, no note. There were many sites with only a few occupied, and dirt roads with scary run-off edges. Most sites appear to be on slope beyond what most rigs can level on. So we take the first available spot, B-1. WiFi signal was too weak to get online. So we move to one on the bottom of the property next to the bath-house with the laundry, hoping that maybe that is the hot-spot. No, still not enough signal to connect. And then, we go to the bathhouse, YUCK! We decide to leave. We would rather boondock than pay 12.50 (reg $25) plus tax in this disgusting place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has potential but it needs the owner (nice guy) to invest some money. There are two nice ponds and nice campsites. This is a good stop over but if it gets fixed up I can see spending more time here. All the buildings are run down. The covered picnic area by the pool has a rusty tin roof that is lifting off, the guard shack by the gate is closed and full of junk, the bathrooms are run down. The area to do laundry is a back room with only one washer and dryer. You can only get the WiFi if you camp in certain areas of the campground. Instead of caps on the septic he has soda bottles blocking the pipe. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A little difficult to get into and out of because gravel road has water gully. A nice friendly campground once you get into your slot. We were placed in the back with other large motorhomes, we were in the clear so got good satellite reception but if you have Verizon, there is no phone or broadband reception. You can get broadband at the Wi-Fi hotspot in the clubhouse, but phone requires leaving the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate includes Passport discount. This park is on the edge of the woods. Some old pine trees around a couple of ponds. Supposedly stocked with fish? No Cable TV but good access to Antenna stations. Verizon internet access was marginal. Sometimes it wanted to connect roaming. Supposedly access to wireless at clubhouse which closes at 9PM. Grass is thin. Typical sandy ground grass attempt. Each unit had light on power pole. Most of them worked. Bathrooms need updating but were clean. Smooth gravel entry but exit had a few wild spots to keep you on your toes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground has easy access, sites are spacious and clean. Management is friendly and helpful. We only stayed here for a one night layover but would gladly come back for a longer stay if the opportunity arose. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent 2 months at this park while we were visiting relatives in Pensacola, FL. There
were several RV parks in closer proximity, but this one had "personality." Lots and lots of pine trees and a spring-fed lake. The manager was extremely nice and helpful; they had activities almost daily. The white sand beaches of Florida/Alabama are close and Mobile, AL is less than an hour away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
