Very nice sites on the Black Warrior River

Very nice campground with super hosts!!!!!  The sites are spacious!!!  Very clean and well maintained.

Convenient Location/Great Staff

We stayed in site 4 as a one night pull through for our class A. We typically don’t unhook our Jeep tow for one night, but so glad we did here! The staff told us about a great restaurant to check out just a few minutes away in the downtown area, Weidmann’s. It was delicious! Apparently it’s the oldest restaurant in Mississippi and one of the oldest in the US. Downtown is super cute! Definitely go check it out.

The site was great too! We enjoyed a quiet night’s sleep and were nice & level. It was also super convenient to have propane on site right when you pull up for checkin. Would definitely stay here again.

Great campground

Great campground on the river. Sites have slot of room and are level. River sites are hard to get. Very clean.

Summer fun

Great camping in summer. Would get 5 stars if it had full hook ups!

First to Review
Free at a Cost

It's a shame we had a less than ideal experience here, because we love a good free spot on the water with amenities. First the good, its FREE! No reservation needed, simply pull up and enjoy. First come, first serve. The site we stayed at was level with a nice gravel pad with a fire pit & picnic table with a great view out the rear of the camper of the river for watching the boats pass. We stayed here in mid February and the water spickets were inoperable, not sure if they get turned on during warmer months or if they are entirely out of order. Now the not so good, the trash bins were overflowing, the pit toilet was revolting, and we observed multiple shady vehicles randomly parking for extended periods without ever exiting their vehicle. Now the really bad, at around 2:30 in the morning someone drove through the park and fired a shot. It scared us pretty good, but we stayed the rest of the night. If you're reading this review I would encourage you to stay, but just know what you're going into.

Full Hook ups for $15

Nice spot for a layover, but not our cup of tea for a multi day visit. The parks is operated by the county. The sites are nice featuring picnic tables and grills. There is not a bath house here so you will need to be self contained. The utility pedestals are fancy and remind me of something that would be found on a dock at the marina. The park is pretty large, however we didn't do to much exploring due to hunting season and crummy weather. I get the idea that perhaps this area is used largely for hunting, as there was a lean-to with a device that would be used to hoist up a deer for cleaning.

Tight Spots Decent Activites

We visited St. Stephens Historical Park in mid Febraury. The other campers there seemed to be monthly tenants. The park appeared to be in need of a little TLC and updating. The campsites are super close together, so don't come here if you want any kind of privacy. There is disc golf and some hiking. There is also a dump station.

Peace and quiet

Amazing place to be never a bad experience in 24 years great fishing great sites. 15 minutes from the next town and it’s small perfect get away.

Peaceful, spacious clean

First off. WiFi - as I need to connectivity. Miserable on Visible (Verizon) and Cricket (ATT). The WeBoost made it usable. Apart from working on cell, we managed to stream Sling over Visible. Moving on. The hostess is great. The site is quiet, clean. Full hookups so no need to use showers etc. Great walk around the park, about a one mile loop. Lovely park. $28 / nite for full hookups

Total hidden gem and must stay

We planned on a 2 to 3 nights and stayed 5 … :).  We were at another local site and was looking for a more quite type of place so we could spend time as a family, so I called over to this place and was overwhelmed by the welcome.  It was late and dark and both owners (Steve and Patty) took my wife and I on a walk through their park with flashlights to show what we could pick from … I have never heard of such fantastic hospitality.  They just purchased the park a few months earlier and have upgraded so much it was almost new.  We eventually settled on two sites they said were rarely used because they were in the far back (#26 and #27) and remote.  

The next day when we showed up to set up, they had their team already clear the sites and prep for our arrival.  One of their team members helped us set up and ensure we were fully ready to enjoy our stay.  The site was level and elec/water hook ups.  Overall, the site as secluded, quite, private. We woke up to trees all around us and only one RV long term person that we never saw many feet away.

We were told they would come by with a 'honey pot' and empty our tanks so we didn't have to move since we were staying long enough to fill them with normal use … WOW, I didn't have to hook up and move just to dump!  They did shared with us and show their portable dump tank they use when they camp … I may pick on up. 

The park had new dog runs, wonderful store, excellent help, and easy dump stations.  I was concerned because of the location of the spot being at the bottom of a hill, and the owners told us not to worry … if we were not able to pull out, he would for us and didn't make us feel bad at all.  The slide was down for the winter, but it was fine.

The park is well off the beaten path so it is quite at night. Enjoyed the late night fires and early morning mists … My son was able to relax for the weekend away from the base.
