Wind Creek State Park, Alexander City, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We have camped at Wind Creek for 20+ years. Have always enjoyed it because it gives us access to the lake and is close to home. Some things to be aware of are that starting in 2018, from March 1 to October 31 ALL waterfront sites have to be reserved for 7 days. You can still walk up and you *might* be able to rent a waterfront site for fewer than 7 days, if one is available. Keep in mind that most of them do NOT have sewer connections, so you will need to bring a portable dump tank or plan to disconnect and dump if staying a while. Something else to be aware of if you are bringing water toys is that a lot of the waterfront sites now have huge boulders in the water to create a sort of sea wall (prevent erosion), so you might have a water VIEW, but no water ACCESS (even though you pay extra). The older sites need a lot of work - badly. When these were created, most RVs didn't have slides so you will need to be careful with placement of your RV. A lot have tree roots pushing the pavement up. The roads are one way and very narrow on the loops, which makes the sites even harder to back into, especially if it's crowded or a lot of people parked right next to the road (which is common). But all in all it is a nice park, it just needs to be updated. There are no other campgrounds nearby, so it's pretty much take it or leave it in this area. We camped at Wind Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Wind Creek has partnered with a company and installed a zip line attraction. Should be noted that it is very expensive and most of the runs are very short. So about 11-15 little hops between trees. But on the plus side, not many people are using it, so there is no waiting!
