Nice campground with all the amenities. Here you can swim in the pool, play with your kids on the play ground or take them on walk to view the waterfall . Noccalula Falls is a very large water fall and spectacular to see. The campground is located super close to the falls. There is a mountain bike trail system can be jumped on straight from the campground. I would also recommend a visit to back forty brewery if you enjoy libations. Being the 2nd oldest brewery in Alabama they've got the beer brewing thing pretty well dialed. I would say the only draw back here is that the campsites are pretty close together, but if you don't mind close neighbors then you well feel right at home here.
Sites~ most are SMALL and right next to your neighbor. Some have more space but all in all its tight. Driving into the campground and finding your site is TIGHT as well.
Bathhouse~ it's okay. Clean and well maintained. 3 stalls with a double curtain but no shower stall doors.
Activities~ It's why we keep going back! The hiking is great and there is always something new to see. If it's hot you can play in the river. After Thanksgiving the gardens next door have a fabulous Christmas light display.
Tranquility campgrounds and one of the nicest private parks in Alabama. The staff was super friendly, the rates good, and the grounds were clean and well maintained. There is a nice little pond to fish and a few little trails around the park. You can easily get to Desoto falls by foot (.85 mile) with spectacular views. Also this park is just minutes from downtown Mentone and super close to Desoto State Park. It was not too crowded when we went so it was nice and on Monday we felt we almost had the place to ourselves. Each pimative site had water and electricity, so that was nice. The bath houses are also very nice. The sites can be a little closer together so be careful in peak season. I would recommend this place over and over.
Pros: affordable, nice amenities (pool - closed to covid19, playground, access to public park, bathrooms, pavilion, laundry room-really affordable), neat setting, plenty to do there and near by, good cell reception (T-Mobile). Cons: a lot of the campsites are on top of each other or at weird angles, don’t recommend most of the sites for big rigs, WiFi is flakey at best depending on your site. Pro/Con: it’s attached to the public park - pro because you can jump straight on the trails con because anyone from the public park can jump straight onto your campsite. We didn’t have trouble, so may not be a big problem - but, we have kids and I was not comfortable with them being outside our camper without us. Overall, I will probably go back at some point - not soon though, but will only stay at sites that we have a little more privacy/space.
Great spot. We stayed the night after Thanksgiving, so we had almost all of the dispersed spots to ourselves. Super quiet right by the lake. Take spot 40 or 41. Only thing to be aware of is the spots are fairly close together, so in peak season it could be tight.
This campground is park of the Noccalula park system and a great weekend get away. Located on what we call “The Mountain” it sits next the Noccalula falls and the gorge with trails for hiking, bike riding and running. The camp ground is very clean and people are very nice
