Harper Campground is designed for tent camping, $20 for unimproved and $30 for improved (electricity and water). If you have a $20 site, you have to bum water from one of the $30 sites. The restroom is nice and clean, showers are hot, and dumpsters are close to restrooms, but is a bit of a walk since the campground is so spacious. I rode my bike to use the bathroom. Enough brush to discreetly pop a squat if that’s your style. A small RV or camper van can easily fit in most of the sites. They’re quite spacious and only a couple (17 and 19) had mud pits. Every site is quite flat and clear and has good hammock trees. Sites 20 and up are not very private since the day use people can see right into your camp but otherwise they’re quite private since the shrubs are thick. Lots of cover meant less dew-covered gear in the morning. Each site had a nice wooden picnic table and fire pit. They sell small bundles of wet firewood for $6 a pop online and at the gatehouse so I recommend buying the regular sized dry bundles at the local supermarket a couple minutes down the road. Wildlife was good for birds, and we had an armadillo visit us all 4 nights! The history of the place is also really cool and we did not get any creepy vibes.
Campground itself isn't large only about 50+ sites. Most are full hook up with less then 20 being power and water only. Very well maintained and always making improvements.
Sites~ most are spacious but need more tree growth to have the illusion of privacy. Pads are gravel but fairly level. Some back up to water.
Bathhouse~ The newest BH is very nice, well maintained and clean. 4 shower stalls with doors and curtains. They are about to start construction on a second BH.
Things to do~ No real biking or hiking trails. Small lake/lg pond to fish in and river for swimming. They offer tubing trips through the campground $5 per person and it's maybe 2 hrs with stops. Horseback riding trails and accommodations.
Great campground for hanging with friends and lounging at the river, clean and well maintained. If your looking for activities and places to go this is not the best choice.
This small brewery in Mobile, Alabama was discovered on our Journey from the the Atlantic Coast to Big Bend National Park. Since you're not going fast pulling a travel trailer, having easy access overnight spots is always welcome, and the Serda Brewing company was just right.
We discovered Serda on Harvests Hosts, but they seem to accommodate most RV's and travel trailers in their back side "Food truck" parking lot. You'll want to be less than 35 feet, and pending on your rig, they might be able to fit two RV's / Campers in this space. It's not big at all.
This is city boon docking in a very hip area of Mobile. No Water No Sewer. But there is one 250 volt 50 amp 4 prong electric hook-up available to use for$10 per night. The lot is asphalt and fairly level.
If you're taller than 12', you'll need to take the he Wallace Tunnel on I-10 to get here. Avoid other routes.
Pack out what ever you pack in. Serda does have wi-fi and cell service is good. There are several restaurants you can walk to.
It's free to say here, but it is courtesy to visit the brewery and make a purchase…which if you even remotely like beer, is not a problem. Stuff is quite good.
It was nice to revisit this park and reminisce. This is a very well maintained park with nice shady campsites. It is definitely one of the best parks in the area. They have bath houses with washers and dryers on site. The campgrounds have their own beach but, the bottom is usually soft and oozy mud. Good fishing out on the lake. Used to be good bass in the Lilly pads on the opposite side of the bridge. If you travel this area I would recommend staying at this park!
