Prairie Creek Campground is situated beneath moss-draped oaks on the banks of Woodruff Lake. The lake is part of the scenic Alabama River in the region's Black Prairie Belt.
For sportsmen, the campground offers a wonderful opportunity to relax between fishing and hunting trips. Water sports and hiking are also popular activities.
Woodruff Lake offers excellent fishing for bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish.
Boating, jet skiing and other water sports are big draws to the lake, and a boat ramp is provided for easy water access.
The Lowndes Wildlife Management area, located nearby, covers 12,500 acres and provides prime hunting for whitetail deer, wild turkey, hogs and a variety of small game and waterfowl.
This waterfront campground offers 55 family RV sites and seven tent-only sites, all with electric hookups.
Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, a dump station and laundry facilities.
A beach, boat ramp, dock, playground, basketball court and picnic shelter make the campground ideal for families.
The Black Prairie Belt is characterized by rich, dark soils and a mosaic of rolling grasslands and dense hardwood and pine forests.

sketchy phone service…we have verizon and had very limited coverage.
great staff…very helpful.
showers…pressure was great! restrooms were old(er), but clean!
Site was very level….ours had good shade…fair amount of space and many concrete pads (but not all).
Some have raised issues about the ants…we did see ants, but ONLY on the tent walk in area…and there were places there that looked like the ants would have been a real issue.
Gorgeous sites, many right on the water. We saw huge paddlefish jumping out of the water, many birds and deer on the nature trail. Bring fishing poles. Staff super friendly. Would get five stars but the ants really are bad. It's a southern campground thing apparently. Be prepared and you'll be fine. Walk-in sites really nice and trail is flat and will accommodate wagon for hauling gear easily.
My family's favorite campground so far.
The tent sites are walk in only…guess I missed that bit of info when I reserved. The guy at the gate was nice enough to change us from the furthest site to the closest…with 2 kids in tow I definitely didn't want to carry all the our supplies in! Sadly the sites were infested with ants!! They were everywhere..inside everything and we had to toss food that was in containers…just gave us the jitters! Spray killed many of them but we used an entire can and still had ants!
The bath house and washer/dryer were clean.
Ppl were friendly. The lake wss gorgeous
