Gunter Hill Park is a Corp of Engineers campground just outside of Montgomery, Alabama. Although we have not camped at many COE parks, I can't imagine any of them topping this one! Of the 142 sites, 1-75 are renovated with concrete pads and full hook-ups. We were there in February and the weather was a little wet & cold. Since it wasn't very crowded, only 1 area of campsites was open. Be aware if you're there during a string of heavy rain days as some low lying sites may become flooded. Our site backed up to a point where we could sit and watch the water. However, if we had stayed another day we would have been told to move as more rain was expected and the water levels were rising.
The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. There were also a few hiking trails and nice paved roads for bikes. I did smell a paper factory in the air while we were there. I've also read that you can hear the race cars from the Montgomery Speedway during racing season from your campsite.
There was a lot to explore around the area as well. We went into Montgomery several times. I recommend checking out the AL Dept of History & Archives free museum. Its very well done and I learned a lot about Alabama. We also visited the Memorial for Peace & Justice along with the Legacy Museum. Both very well done and thought provoking.
For a different setting for a meal, check out the nearby Stockyard Grill. You can go in for a burger and leave with the whole cow!
Called around 4 pm to ask about availability and the woman said it was first come first serve and to follow the directions if we got there late. We got there at 6:30 and nobody was at the entrance so we put a marker where we wanted to camp and went on our way. Everything was clean and the campsite was very quiet. Nice overall.
When we went to check out in the morning, we were told we parked in the $30 lot and not the $18 (there was no signage). The man said he would give us the $18 rate since we did not know… but then this woman comes and starts yelling at him and telling him to “never do that again”. They bicker with each other for 20 minutes while we are standing right there! We finally pay and when we say that we were in a rush, hoping to move the payment process along since they did not accept cash, the woman starts yelling at us telling us that we have no right to tell her how to run her business and throws the receipt at us. We (finally) get in the car and she yells at us to get out and “never come back”. No worries. We won’t.
Stayed in the Antioch Loop (older section). The sites are a nice size with gravel. Water and electric. Lots of trees and shade. Nice playground and air conditioned shower house. Saw laundry was available but didn’t use. Lots of Spanish moss. The downside, Saturday night race nearby was really loud. I wasn’t terribly bothered but some people might be. Check the raceway schedule before you book.
