“Very nice COE park on the Warrior River”

Reviewed Nov 05, 2018

Overall Rating

This is our second campground and first Army Corp of Engineers park we've stayed in since picking up our new van a week ago in Saint Louis. I've been reading about, and marking as favorites, campgrounds for future reference for over a year in anticipation of traveling full-time once my wife retires. This is my first review.

As with most COE parks about which I've read reviews, this park is nicely maintained. All the pads are concrete and the majority are level, and all of the sites are nicely cleaned after each use. I attribute some of the cleanliness to locals who use and appreciate having such a nice facility. They leave their sites clean.

All sites have water and electricity. There's a dump station on site with easy pull through access.

The park is relatively large and nice for walking or riding a bicycle. There's a boat ramp for those who come to fish and numerous places to wet a hook from the shore. There's a beach for swimming in warmer weather.

The bathhouse is relatively new and clean with flush toilets. Showers have adequate water pressure and the water is hot enough for a great shower. There are at least two additional locations on the grounds with flush toilets.

There's no cell service and no wi-fi. I could pick up between 3 and 5 television stations we have not watched. While we have a satellite dish, we've opted to forgo getting a service for now, so don't know about reception. A few of the river sites may provide enough exposure for satellite reception, but the other sites off of the river are heavily wooded and shaded and probably won't.

The campground is located a ways off of Interstate 20-59 and about an hour's drive from Birmingham, Alabama. The road is good and the drive to the campground is a bit winding, but not difficult. The campground is pretty isolated, so get all your provisions before you travel to the campground.

Lastly, the campground is located in a beautiful setting just below a lock and damn on the Warrior River. It has been really quiet even when we had a group of college students next to us for the last few days. All the hosts we've met are nice and helpful.

The $14.00 price per night reflects my senior pass discount.

“Quiet river campground ”

This is one of our favorite campgrounds.
Corps of Engineers Campground. Well maintained.
Remote, beautiful scenery beside the Black Warrior River.
If you require being connected to the outside world this isn't for you. No AT&T, no Verizon. But if you want escape from the all of that, this is perfect.
