Clean and spacious

The park is quite with widely spaced sites. Most sites are about 90 feet apart. One section has FHU’s. Wooded area so satellite TV will be challenging in summer, but park is close to Montgomery so over-the-air stations are plentiful. Many sites are on the water and can fish from the bank. Park is about 10 miles from Prattville if shopping and restaurants are your thing.

Love this place, but cell coverage spotty

This is always our go-to place to stop at when in the area. Lovely rustic campground divided into two distinct loops, one feels like it’s from the 70’s ( w&e, no sewer) and the newer side that has full hookups for an additional $4 a day. Last time I was using ATT, and coverage was fair. This time I am on Visible with a WeBoost-and struggling to view presentations with any consistency. Be warned if this is a necessity. We love the campground and will be back

Clean, quiet and nice setting

Good, level spots. Well-spaced but not private.

About 50% full on the night we stayed and lots of really nice camping rigs. Saw no tents except ours (roof top tent).

Dollar General near the entrance and only about 20 minutes from Montgomery.

Couple of nice playgrounds for kids to run off energy.

Restrooms/showers were ok. Could use some TLC.

Definitely would stay here again. Not sure I would for a whole week though.

Nice site with full hookups

Gunter Hill was a nice COE campground. We had site 32 in the Catoma Loop (only loop open - we stayed at the end of January for one night). The sites are level and had full hookups. Our site had a good view of the lake, but I’m not sure you’d have that view once trees and underbrush have full leaves. Only disappointments were we had a strong sewage smell around our site when we first got there - the smell went away so maybe it was just the direction of the wind (the bath house is across the road). And when we walked through our woods behind our site to look at the lake, we were saddened to see tons of trash in the woods - made the pretty view of the lake a lot less appealing. We would stay here again for a one night, but probably not for a long stay.

Peaceful & Beautiful

Gunter Hill is a gem of a campground! Sites are spacious, long, and paved with full hookups. We were on the lake in site 28. The bathrooms & showers are older but adequate. Wished we could have stayed more than one night.

First to Review
Peaceful.

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

Fine for a quick overnight

This campsite is right off the interstate just south of Montgomery so it makes for a super convenient and easy stop overnight. The sites are close to level and are all (I think) pull throughs. They have the amenities needed and the grounds are well kept and it seems like they are still developing.

There’s nothing special about this stop except the convenience and fantastic customer service. We made our reservation last minute because of storms and Deborah was so kind and accommodating.

As this is right off the interstate you get the convenience of a truck stop for gas etc right there. But you also get a little interstate noise - didn’t bother us a bit. But there is also a train that runs nearby that I heard a few times.

All in all, a great spot for an overnight but not a destination.

Tip for travelers with kids: If you are trying to burn time with kids, the safari park is nearby and was a great way to burn some energy.

Quiet Spot

We stopped here overnight on a cross-country trip. Quiet placed tucked in the woods. Good dog walking paths.

Friendly staff

Very friendly staff, great long level sites and easy on/off access from I-65. Would highly recommend when coming to visit Montgomery!

Nice and quiet

Clean and quiet. Great amenities. Get any size rv in the spaces. Tent sights. Very clean bathhouse.
