  • This is a nice, quiet Camping Location. VERY CLEAN ATMOSPHERE. Perfect for Families or older couples. Downside is the distance to reasonably priced stores, so it's best to get all you need prior to making camp.
  • Great little campground to have as a hub to go sight see. To the person who checked us in on 11/5/2021, she deserves an award for having such incredible composure during an influx of eight camp vehicles arriving all at once! RV sites are good. Even the tent sites for having a tent or camper van were good. Yes, this campground did sustain damage to the grounds and lost many trees. All of the damage was cleaned up before our visit. Bathrooms here are suites. Each has it's own private toilet, sink, shower. Alabama State Parks should come take notes on what a proper bathroom setup and maintenance looks like!
