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!

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.

Stopover Gem

This is a great place for a stopover. Tent spots lined the waterside and they allowed boondockers. Clean restrooms. Boat ramp that the locals frequent often. There is a friendly and helpful host from October until April. He locked the gate at night. We have stayed at the host site in late spring with FHU for free.

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.

Beautiful spot for hiding in the dark and peeking at other campers.
