Peaceful.

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

Excellent spot to pitch a tent

We needed a place in a pinch since we got on the road in the afternoon. Spoke with a very nice man on the phone (Jim Scott if memory serves me) who directed us to book online… $18 for the night and we had running water, a fire pit, and a decent little plot overlooking a section of the Alabama River. In the morning we showered in the nicely maintained facilities and dropped our canoe in the water from the boat ramp to explore Woodruff Lake which was fantastic. The park was well maintained and aside from a dozen or so RVs it was mostly vacant on a Wednesday night. Highly recommend.

Some sites better than others.

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend so it was very busy, even with some rain showers.

We stayed at site 23 for 3 nights. this site is located next to the boat ramp and parking lot so there was a lot of traffic. It’s next to the water but 3-4 feet above the water line and blocked by bushes and low hanging trees. There are a couple widow makers above so use caution during storms.

We moved to site 18 which was level with the water and pretty wide open. This area of the campground was much better. The only negative was the amount of ants, which we kept out of the camper with comet.

There was a 3 foot gator around most of the weekend. Some gar and blue cats to catch along with a lot of small crappie.

The facilities were clean. I think there was only one dumpster that is too far to walk with trash. Ice is for sale when social distancing rules go away.

Quiet, Gorgeous

So nice. Many sites right on the water. Quiet and well equipped. Weather was perfect for a fire right next to the river. Fire ring, charcoal grill, flat paved sites…perfect for this 24' RV.

Quiet, out of the way, and a charming place

Wifi non-existent.

sketchy phone service…we have verizon and had very limited coverage.

great staff…very helpful.

showers…pressure was great!  restrooms were old(er), but clean!

Site was very level….ours had good shade…fair amount of space and many concrete pads (but not all).

Some have raised issues about the ants…we did see ants, but ONLY on the tent walk in area…and there were places there that looked like the ants would have been a real issue.

Waterfront camping

Gorgeous sites, many right on the water. We saw huge paddlefish jumping out of the water, many birds and deer on the nature trail. Bring fishing poles. Staff super friendly. Would get five stars but the ants really are bad. It's a southern campground thing apparently. Be prepared and you'll be fine. Walk-in sites really nice and trail is flat and will accommodate wagon for hauling gear easily.

Superb

My family's favorite campground so far.

Bring ant killer if camping in tents!

The tent sites are walk in only…guess I missed that bit of info when I reserved. The guy at the gate was nice enough to change us from the furthest site to the closest…with 2 kids in tow I definitely didn't want to carry all the our supplies in! Sadly the sites were infested with ants!! They were everywhere..inside everything and we had to toss food that was in containers…just gave us the jitters! Spray killed many of them but we used an entire can and still had ants!

The bath house and washer/dryer were clean.

Ppl were friendly. The lake wss gorgeous
