We pulled up here to Little River RV Park and Campground only to find a sign as we enter the premises stating that they no longer allow tent camping. Due to no body at the office or answering the supplied number could not talk anybody to talk to about this. ( Update ) I got ahold of someone and they informed me that because of the Corona virus they are not allowing tent campers because they are messy. Stating that they don’t clean up after themselves in the shower facilities. Not sure what this has to do with corona? being they let any other form of camping. And I’m sure not just tent campers use the wash house.
Your average campground. You can get all the information from the bio. Closest place to camp if you're wanting to explore Little River Canyon! It's beautiful and features many waterfalls and hiking!
This is a very cute little campground and the owners are very great people! Some of the sites are a little close together but we have honestly been to worse places. Our site was number 5 and we had a great little fire pit and plenty of room for the kids to play. The campground is very close to Little River Canyon and Desoto Falls.
This is my go to campground in fort Payne Alabama. The owners are super nice!! There is a pond with cute ducks!! You can buy a bundle of fire wood for $5. It is less than a mile from little river canyon national park! There are some really nice lots to choose from and they are currently adding more camping lots! 🥰🥰 if you want to be a little rowdy at night time I suggest getting a spot away from other campers and RVs because quiet time starts around 10pm. I like to be courteous and keep it Mello and calm when I'm there for I am a night owl. As the owners told me "Make yourself at home." 😁😁
Very clean and inexpensive! Sites are extremely close but we were only ones in our area so it wasn’t bad. Very close to get hiking and waterfalls.
2 night stay. Most sites are close together, but there are a few that are a little more private. Most sites have a slight to moderate slope to them. Lots of shade. Close to DeSoto State Park that has lots of hiking and site-seeing. Good alternative when DeSoto campground has no availability.
This is your classic RV and tent campground with large pull in sites and hookup that is the closest option for camping to Little River Canyon. The canyon itself does not allow any camping and therefor you are limited to either here or going a little further north to Desoto State park. This site is not a terrible option but you wont have the same privacy and wilderness that you get at Desoto if you are tent camping. The nice thing though is that the site is well taken care of and provides reservations (when their website is done with repairs). They are also extremely close to the Little River Canyon park which makes it worth it. The canyon is gorgeous and provides for some amazing views especially if you drive the entire scenic road and stop at all the lookouts. There are a few options for hikes that take you down from the ridge into the areas that you could get to the water but it does not have as extensively developed trail network as you will find at Desoto and the areas further north. If you stay at this campground make sure to take some outings and explore all the incredible scenery in the area.
Sites are close together, but we were able to camp in the "back country" sites, which was all we needed. Seemed like there was construction going on for expansion of the camp ground.
Stayed here to check out the climbing at Little River Canyon NP. Little River is beautiful, the climbing not so much.
Campground was fine.
sites are unlevel and tight. but lrc is a awesome park and awesome swimming.
