2 RV Parks near Alexander City, Alabama
Mar 2019 - $50.00
It is a nice park, large in size but in need of some serious maintenance upgrades. The park roads are narrow, the sites are close together and the pads are need of some repairs, there are roots coming up on some of them and the picnic tables are terrible.. There is good 4G Verizon but due to all the trees, satellite TV was basically a no go. The numbers for the sites are suppose to be on the road but are so faded they are hard to read. There is laundry but it's minimal-4 washers/2dryers but only $1.00. This is a summer destination for local people. Lake Martin is a huge lake with all matter of water sports on it. This park must be jamming in "the season" but while we were here, early March for 2 weeks, it was very quiet and isolated. We had a nice view of one of the coves and enjoyed watching the geese and other water birds. Big complaints about this park. One is their reservation policy. Mar-Oct you can only reserve for minimum 7 days on line. If you want a site for the weekend or a few days, you have to take your chances on drive up. But the kicker is that the web site reservation let us reserve for 17 days so imagine our surprise when we were told on arrival that we could have our site for 14 days but then have to move for the next 3 days/2 nights! Sorry if we need to move-we will really move-out. Two is their security gate: You need to put a code in 2 gates to get into the camping area. But the key pads are extremely hard to reach from your truck or car, especially when you are hauling a trailer. 2 weeks here was about a week too long. - Afhertzog_54

This campground is huge and it is very family friendly. There are kids everywhere! We didn't have a reservation and we were able to get the last available spot on the lake in the newer section on a Saturday afternoon. There are many sections - some are waterfront with water and electric and others are full hookups on inner loops or on the waterfront. The newest section has 50/30 and nice big wide and level pads. The older sections have concrete pads but they are just wide enough for your camper and many don't look level. There are many bathhouses. The laundry room was clean and $1 per wash and $1 to dry. The only downside is the Wifi. It looks like they spent a lot of money setting up antennas and repeaters but if you can even connect (and that is rare) the download speeds are slower than 1mbps. We work on the road so this was disappointing. Luckily we had good Verizon and ATT service and tethered to work on our laptops. I do think the reservation system needs updated or reworked. We were told we got the last spot but 70% of the sites around us were empty while we were there. - OurBigAdventure

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. - DebDeb

I was in the tent camping area. There were 3 employees working at the Marina. When I got to my campsite the trash cans on all sites were full and trash scattered by raccoons. I stayed 3 nights and not once did anyone come empty the trash cans. No toilet paper in bathrooms. Found that out the hard way. There is so much work to do there. If there are 3 employees only 1 should be at the Marina, especially since all they sell is ice. The others need to be cleaning up the campsites and bathrooms. Great place on the lake. Very beautiful. But it is being so neglected. - Badonkadonk

I read all the bad reviews. Thought it couldn't be that bad. It is. This campground seems to be a neglected step child among the mostly decent military campgrounds that I have been to. Our pad and the other TT accompying us had to be elevated 5 inches just to be close to level. Our two pads were dirt only. The picnic tables were on ground so unlevel a coffee cup slid off. Our pad required a 100' back-in, downhill, on dirt and pine straw, with a 90 degree turn at the bottom. Next to it is was an array of three TTs sitting at all different angles in a hillside with so much stuff scattered about it looked like a yard sale. If you come here avoid sites 41, 42, 51 and possibly others. Better yet go across the lake to the State Park. We wanted to do that but waited too late for Memorial weekend reservations. Now we know why this place was available. - Tidy Boy

The location of this park on Lake Martin is great, but park amenities are in extreme disrepair. Our site was water/electric only right on the lake with its own dock and good tree coverage. But the site was so unlevel that even with leveling jacks it took over an hour to level it. The entire campground is ant infested so bring at least 2-3 cans of ant killer because they will get in and on your RV. The bathrooms are full of spiderwebs, ants, and black mold. Only one of the two showers in the men's and women's bathrooms worked and the sink in the women's bathroom actually fell out of the wall. When I tried to use the dumping station, it was full of ants and over flowing with sewage. For the kids there is a small beach and a new playground. Boats are also available for rent. - Cap'n G
