Love this campground/ Park.

 We have been here multiple time with the latest visit being 4/2020. We have stayed in most sections at least once. Site are mostly level. Some are tight to back into but doable. Some sites and FHU and some lack sewer. They show movies on weekend nights outdoors by the main playground. The playgrounds must be the best because I see children out there at 7am until way after dark. When it's open anyway. Was closed on last visit. Fishing pier, zip line, hiking trails and water related stuff. Many sites are on the water but they book many months in advance during warm weather. Boat launches and docks around in different locations for campers to use. 

The bath house in the premium section is closed due to storm damage. They fill propane and sell firewood. Marina in the park area.

We will visit again.

Campground is 4 star, Park as a whole is 5 star

The campground is very acceptable. Some RV sites with FHU and some without sewer. Tent sites also. We have camped here many times on many different sites in the B section. Sites mostly level and drain ok when it rains. Campground registration is easy and painless and staff is great. There is a dump station on the way out of the campground. They sell firewood and fill propane. Some sites near/on lake. This campground stays crowded most of the year. FHU sites go first. Campground is 5.5 miles from main entrance. 

The rest of the park is amazing. Probably 50 miles of hiking trails. Over 30 miles of biking trails and most are maintained regularly. Also horse/hiking trails and stables. Cabins on semi private lake. 

18 hole golf course and is enjoyable and easily walkable. 

Marina with kayak,canoe,sup and pedal boat rentals. This has been closed due to covid19 though. You can still rent these at the cable skiing area near back entrance. Picnic tables everywhere. 

Archery area with targets and elevated shooting platform.

Pump track and BMX track.

Costs 5$ per person to enter park but included if you are camping. 

Will visit again.

Cheaha State park is great.

First of all, We went during the beginning of covid19 and the office/store was mostly closed. You had to check in via a window that was crowded in a tight space. No place to park truck/travel trailer, park  ranger blocked this parking area. Had to pull into gravel parking lot not suited for trailer. Not a big deal but worth mentioning. Campground was clean and newly remodeled sites with modern pedestal. No cable or antenna reception. Not a big deal, Camping. Bath house was new and cleaned multiple times daily. Don't know if the cleaning schedule was normal or due to covid19 precautions. Sites were level and easy to enter as many were pull through. Hiking was average in the park. Not really great. Great was leaving the park and hiking the Pinhoti trail just outside the park. The restaurant at the lodge was closed during our visit and was the pool. All in all we would visit again.

Nice campground. Beautiful scenery and great hiking.

Stayed here in OCt. 2019 with family. Site was level, Had water and electric hookups. No full hookups at this campground. Gray water dump close to campsite. Black water dump quite a was away. Hiking here was amazing. Many metal steps and wonderful views. Park overall was clean and well maintained. Staff helpful and nice. Will go back.

It does the trick.

Flat paved spot to park RV for home base while fishing/boating. No bath house, Full hook-up's though. Functions perfectly. Restaurant at marina and marina/store great. Staff courteous and helpful. Will be here again when fishing and boating.

Great campground in nice state park.

This campground is spacious and sites have good spacing. At least in our section. Grounds maintained well. Staff friendly. We checked in late on Friday night and currently you have to check in at the lodge. Signage in the park not great. Signs small and faded. Campground had great water access for boating and bank fishing. There are boat docks in the campground area and launch close also. Campsite mostly level and drain well when raining. The outer loop sites are pull through but short. Staff said to call them if we did not fit into site. We fit with no problem. We had FHU with good verizon reception for calls but not so much for data. Some local TV stations also received. The park overall is mostly about boating and fishing with a nice marina/ store that sells fishing and camping needs. We will visit again.

Great location

This campground is 1 block from the beach and pier parking lot. Thats the best thing about this campground, Location. We stayed here in Oct 2019. Sites have  FHU with cable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground did have some long term camping but it was soon after hurricane Michael. Grounds were clean. Bath house clean and operated normal but could use updating. Sites are very tight, Closest sites we have experienced at any campground. We will go back someday mostly for the location. 

PS. difficult to back into sites on the front side of the campground due to tightness of sites and narrow road. Every time someone arrived or departed, Other campers would move vehicles to help ingress/egress.

Camping here is great

We stayed here in May 2019. It was very enjoyable. Full hook-ups. Bath house clean and functioned normal. Sites really don't have water views on even on the water that we saw. They have boat ramps and docks/slips. Tons of deer in the park. Drive slow dusk to dawn. We ate at the lodge and it was just average. Lake is beautiful and fishing is great. Nice cleaning station also. We will go back in the future. Also has golf course but I did not play. Sites are level and easy to back into.

Great atmosphere

We camped here June 2020, Had site #12. Great waterfront site with plenty of space behind unit. Sites are a little close together but not the worst I've ever seen. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Tubing the river is great fun and easy to do without leaving the campground. Less than 1 miles to state park although it was at capacity and not allowing more visitor the first day we went due to covid-19. Got in the next day by going early. 

We did not use the pool area or bath houses so no comment on those. We recommend this campground and will return. We did have FHU and 30 amp.

One of our favorite campgrounds .

We have stayed here 4 times over the last 2 years. We keep coming back. It’s a good location for events in Mobile and Baldwin counties. Site are level and paved. All have FHU I believe. They have a nice little fishing pier. Boat and kayak launch. Bath houses clean and operated correctly. Hot water etc. You can hear traffic in Hwy 98 and I10 at night but was not an issue for us. Other have complained I have noticed. Tv antenna reception good from Mobile and Pensacola. About and hour drive to great beaches also.

We love this campground .

This is our go to campground in Mobile,Al. We stay here to visit family locally. Nice mtb trails. Disc golf course for a small fee. Rv camping is like 28$ for full hook ups. Local tv received easily. Sites level but mostly dirt. Fire rings and they deliver your firewood to your site. Will be back.

Perfectly enjoyable and quiet.

We stayed here in Feb 2020 with family in another rv. We had 2 spacious sites next to each other. Electric and water hookups. Both sites were level. Park staff and camp host helpful and friendly. Hiking was enjoyable and easily accessible from rv camping area. Bath houses were clean and water was hot. Will return in the future .

Our favorite Orange Beach campground

Very clean. Spacious sites with level concrete pads. Full hook ups. Only 8-10 minutes to the beach.  Very clean bath houses. Easy to navigate campground road with tons of room to back into back-in sites. Pull throughs also easily assessible. Nice pool. Check in easy and quick. Employees very friendly. Will be back next month. Camp store on site. They also have a few rental tiny houses and rv's. Trash pickup at your site each morning. Cable TV and great WIFI.

9/6/20 update: all things mostly the same, bath house closed from 8pm to 8am and WiFi not nearly as good as past visits.
