A mixed pine and hardwood forest lines the lakeshore. The campground is surrounded by dense conifer stands and rolling meadows that feature colorful wildflower displays. Wood ducks, bald eagles and many other species of wildlife inhabit the lake area.

This COE park is located right on the banks of the Tombigbee waterway where you can sit and watch the barges take their goods up or down the river. The Park Ranger and camp host were very friendly and welcoming. We chose site 13 which was right on the river. Most of the sites were available mid week. You can choose river front or wooded sites. There is a hiking trail and a playground for the kids. The bathrooms and showers were clean but somewhat dated. There is a washer and dryer available as well. A boat launch is also available in the park. We will definitely plan to return to this park.
nIce park next to tombigbee river, has 2 play areas,a boat launch (free to launch for campers), pull through pads with awesome view of river. only thing is that is does not have sewer hook up but has dumping station
Pretty campground with 2 great tent sites right on the river. Amazing sunsets. It was pretty cold so the mosquitoes were quiet but I imagine they get bad in warmer weather due to the adjacent swamp. I'm pretty sure we heard gators in the swamp at night. Awesome. Only complaint was a lack of enforcement of quiet hours. There was a hootenanny at one of the nearby campers that cussed and drank until midnight.
