Our site had a wooden patio, which was very nice because it rained while we were here, and there was standing water around the sites. They lock up the campground at 7pm and that is a little inconvenient, but I understand the reasoning. The after hours entrance is a little out of the way. Laundry is free: which means lots of waiting for one of the 2 washers and one of the dryers was out of order while we were here. They provided good directions to places around the area.
We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place to park our 5th wheel for awhile, well this was it. Just one problem: the little gnats were so bad, we couldn't set out, have a fire, or enjoy the outdoors. I stayed inside all the time, just went out when we drove somewhere. Not all sites are level, but they do describe them as slopped on their web site, so we were prepared for that. There is a lot of construction going on around the campground, so it is not a quiet place during the day. Campsites are nicely spaced, but you still don't feel like it is very private.
Everything in the park, except the Upland RV campground was closed. Most of the campsites were level and spaced far enough apart that there was privacy. WIFI was weak and limited use. Very few campers even on the week-end. Area kind of remote and a 5 or 6 mile drive to anything.
Rates have gone up since last year. The rate I quoted was with a Passport America discount. They do honor the discount for your entire stay. We stayed here last year. Not much has changed except the the price. Clean, friendly staff, good TV. Wi-Fi is another charge.
Rate quoted is with Good Sam discount. This is the second time we have stayed here. It is a little hard to find, not right off the freeway, but in a residential area. Several long term residents in the park. It is on our route when we head south for the winter. Will probably continue to use it as a stop over for a day or two.
Rate I quoted was weekly rate (per night) for a site that is not on the water. Sites are meticulously raked and cleaned almost daily. Staff very friendly and helpful. There really isn't much of a beach, but being this close to the water is great. Fishing from the pier is allowed, but non productive while we were here. Sites are flat, easy to get in and out of (the ones by the water are a little closer together) hook-ups easy to use. Area called the Forgotten Coast for a reason, things are relaxed, laid back, no hustle and bustle of some of the more touristy areas around. Laundry, bathrooms, rec room and office are in an older building that could use some upgrading. We enjoyed our stay here and will probably come back again. We stayed for two weeks.
Price reflects the weekly rate during the winter season. No state park entrance fee for Alabama state parks. We were on the canal and were able to get in for a week by getting on their waiting list the day we arrived. Their reservation system leaves something to be desired. We were there on March 1st and were able to get a reservation for next March. The whole process is very confusing and not very user friendly. Don't know how you would get a reservation if you weren't there in person. Our site was on the canal. They are all pull-through sites in that area. Sites are paved, and there are patios at each site. Not much screening or trees for privacy on most of the sites. I had trouble with missed calls with my Verizon cell phone. TV reception was good using the antenna; we also used the DirecTV dish for more choices. We plan to return again next year. We like using the recently completed 150 foot pier for fishing. Also nice to go across the highway and have a public beach available.
Price per night reflects Passport America discount. They let us use it for the whole week we were there. This is a nice resort type campground. There were planned activities for those who wanted to participate. We stayed a week and will probably return again sometime. Nice sized sites. Shrubbery had been planted between sites, but it actually was hard to get to the hook-up because the cement pad was too narrow and you had to park too close to the shrubbery. Once the slide was out, it was difficult to get to the hook-ups. We didn't fish from the lake but if we return that is something we may look into. Easy drive to the coast and beach area for a day trip.
Nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount. They also provide a Senior discount for 62 and older. We stayed two nights. We used a pull-through site. Sites were gravel, level, and fairly close together with not much screening or privacy. Hook-ups were easy to use. Verizon cell phones worked in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. We will probably stay here again if the need arises.
February is the off season for this campground. We were the only campers in the entire campground. Sites were level and good sized but all were out in the open with little privacy. Site was a back-in, and we were able to keep the pick-up hooked up for the night. We used this as a stopover on our way south for the winter. The visitors center was open so we spent some time in there. We also visited the fort which was interesting. There was no charge for touring the fort. Also no entrance fee for the state park, so the price for camping was reasonable.
Campground is open all year long. We used it as a stopover on our way from WI to the Gulf Coast. The campground is good for that purpose. It is easy to find and close to the freeway system. The sites are very narrow, but in Feb. we didn't have someone on both sides of us, and we weren't wanting to spend much time outside. We had a pull through and were able to keep the pickup hooked up for the night. The sites were gravel and everything was wet because the snow was melting. They are working on some of the sites, but they will still be pretty close together.
This campground is currently under construction and is listed as a 55+ RV resort. It is very close to I-35, easy to find, easy on and off etc. Right now they offer nightly rates, but the idea is to sell individual sites and make it a 55+ community. Lots of landscaping has been done at the entrance. A couple of easy pull through sites but the rest are back in. Hook-ups are easy to use. There are shrubs planted between sites which will allow privacy someday. Sites are gravel and level. If you buy a site you can choose how to have it, gravel or cement. There is a small lake, but no swimming beach and it is not large enough for boating. We wanted to check it out, but doubt if we will stop again.
We have family in the area and this is the second time we have stayed here. Both times was just after the area had flooded. We stayed up by the office building this time so it wasn't so wet. Owners are friendly and helpful. Not much contact with them after check-in. Sites are gravel and level. Even the upper level was wet and muddy. Sites are close together on the upper level. Hook-ups were ok. Campground is just off I-35, you can see the traffic from the campground but I did not notice any noise from it while we were here. Easy to find and easy to get off and on the freeway. We will probably stay here again because of the family. A nice campground.
Very new campground but the sites are extremely close together. Signs are hard to find, we entered the back way because we missed the sign for the front entrance. Owners were friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and showers are new and spotless. We camped over a week-end and there were several sites that were not filled.
This RV park is open year round. A place to stop on our way south and again on our way north. Entrance is a little difficult, a turn and up hill. Sites are concrete slab, back-in sites. Some long term residents live in this RV park. The staff when we checked in did not know how to apply a Good Sam's discount to our registration. No recreation, but a place to stop for an overnight.
A city owned park. First 48 hours are posted to be free, then $10 per day. We only stayed one night, but couldn't find a self registration envelope so we didn't register. We stayed in the East side of the park, which had back-in sites. The other side of the park had some pull throughs. Level, good sized sites on a concrete slab. Good place to stay for an over night. We couldn't get a Wi-Fi connection. There's good antenna TV reception, but no cable TV.
A KOA park in the parking lot of the Casino/Horse pacing Track. The track wasn't open this time of year but we did watch some trainers working out the horses. Registration is in the Casino, a way to get you in the door and hopefully spend a few bucks while you are there. The WIFI didn't work while we were there, you could get a connection but it wouldn't stay connected. Antenna TV, no cable. The site we were assigned to was very muddy with deep tracks in the mud and grass area. We chose a different site and called the office to tell them we were in a different site. We stayed over night and did not even unhook. It is ok for a stop over, but is really a place to camp for the race track.
New KOA. Good roads to get into the park and throughout the camp ground. Level sites, hook-ups are easy to use. Cement patio with patio furniture rather than a picnic table-a nice touch. Stayed 3 nights. Would stay again. Not much going on at this time of year.
Older Corps of Engineers park. Not much room between sites. Some sites were blacktopped, but most were gravel and in need of some work. Bathrooms were clean but older and not too appealing. Nice view of the lake. You are camping in the woods and it it hard to get DirecTV because of the trees. No WI-FI or cable and not even any antenna TV. We stayed overnight and didn't unhook. Would stay again for an overnight. For the price we did not expect much. The cost quoted above reflects us using our Senior Pass and got half off the regular price.
We loved this RV park. It is what we have been looking for. The only problem is there is only one overnight or short term site available and there is a waiting list for the rest of the sites. The campground is set up very well. The sites are cement, level and the hook-ups are easy to use. The self registration payment system is a little confusing. We had called ahead and knew that site #10 was the only short term site available, but it was not posted that way at the self-registration area. If we had come to the campground without calling, we may have set up on one of the other empty sites. We used Passport America. It was listed as one of the discounts that the campground accepted, but it only states it was for daily rate, but did not state if it was for one, two or unlimited use. Wi-Fi is free and worked sometimes, but it was not reliable. No cable TV available and only one channel of antenna TV. We stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely come back again. We hope that maybe at some point in time we will return for a long term stay in the area.
A very quiet campground where you go to "camp" or fish. We were here on a weekend and there was a fishing tournament of some kind going on. Several campers left on Sunday. There were only 3 or 4 campers after the weekend. Sites are black-top and in the area we choose, they were level. When we walked around the campground, we saw several where you would have to back down a hill before setting up your unit. Roads are blacktopped and in pretty good shape. No antenna TV reception here. Our cell phone did work. We stayed for 2 nights. The rate quoted above reflects using our Senior Pass which cut the fees in half.
Rating would have been higher, but there was mud and standing water all around the cement slab which made it impossible to even get out of the 5th wheel without getting in to the mud. Around the hook-up was standing water, which didn't dry up the whole time we were here. We stayed a week and were parked in with the long term "residents". The park has a "short term" area up front. Some of these sites were drier and remained empty. I feel a week is really short-term. When it has rained and some of the sites are very muddy and wet, I feel management should fill up the dryer sites and only use the "wet" ones if necessary. Sites have a concrete slab to park on, but it's a little narrow to be able to walk around the unit when it is so wet. The park was quiet even though it was located between I-10 and a railroad. We used a Passport America discount for 2 nights and Good Sam for the rest of our stay. They served a breakfast each morning with waffles in the shape of Texas. We would stay here again for a 1-2 night stop, but probably wouldn't stay a week like we did this time.
A meticulously kept park. With that comes lots of rules; don't do this, don't do that! Sites are very spacious, level, easy access to hook-ups. Absolutely NO parking on the grass, yet of the cement slabs are not really long enough to park 5th wheel and pick-up on it. NO parking on other sites even though there were only 5 units in the campground. The campground area was clean. It rained while we were here, and there was standing water all around the slab. I'm glad we didn't pay the extra fee to get a waterfront site! Construction of a jetty on the gulf shore, limited ease of getting to walk on the shore around the campground.
We stayed for 2 weeks; most are here for the season. There is a wide variety of planned activities that we were involved in. There is an activities director on site. Sites are spacious, adequate hook-ups (location and ease of hooking up). Everything is clean and well maintained. If we come back to this area, we would probably stay at this park compared to others we have seen around here.
We stayed here for 3 nights, and we felt like we were "camping" or on vacation during our Winter Escape from WI. Some of the sites were not so well developed. The site we chose was not built for a 5th-wheel. As we drove into it the pitch of the cement slab was great enough that the overshot of the 5th wheel touched the pick-up box. (No damage, just a little paint exchange.) There was adequate space around the sites that you didn't feel like people were "stacked" on top of each other. We don't have a TX Park sticker, so we had to pay $4 per day/per vehicle. That was our choice but it still makes it expensive to stay.
Stayed one night, used Passport America discount. Staff accommodating, Quiet. Sites level on the part where we were assigned. Golf course attached to the campground. We stayed here last year and would return again.
Stayed overnight. Met our needs of finding a place to plug into electricity for the night. Site had been plowed out (snow still on the ground), but it could have been plowed wider so you could walk from vehicle to 5th wheel without walking in snow bank. Price did not reflect limited services. There was no water and no usable toilets or showers. Staff was friendly and accommodating. They told us there was no water when we called.
