This is a great campground. It’s nothing fancy, and is basically an open field but it’s clean, and the grounds are clean, well taken care of with great hookups. The sewer hole is down on the ground, so everything flowed the way it should...down, not up like some of the campgrounds we’ve been to.
There’s a golf course in the back where you can hear and see the golfers play.
The bathrooms are private. There’s a trailer on site with 3 private bathrooms and showers...no stalls. You go in, close the door and you have the toilet, sink, shower all right there for you, along with 2 washers and 2 dryers. Loved the private bathrooms. Showers were great with plenty of hot water.
The staff is on site in their own RV, and she frequently drives around checking on things.
Garbage bins are right next to the trailer with the bathrooms. Everything was very convenient. The campground is very secluded, private and quiet. It’s surrounded by hills of trees and woods with cow pastures. Super, super quiet. At night there’s nothing, no noise except for the occasional barking dog in the distance. Bring a flashlight, you’ll need it because it’s country dark out there.
Sites were gravel and quite level. We had no problems leveling out travel trailer.
No cable, but the Internet was the best we’ve ever had anywhere. We steamed with no lag, and had zero problems. There were only about 8 other RV’s there the entire month of our stay. More than enough room for our car, truck and travel trailer.
Just follow the green golf course signs and you’ll get there. It’s clearly marked even though you feel like your in the middle of nowhere with the twisting and turning down the dark country roads. Watch for deer on the way in, they come outta nowhere but you have to drive very slow anyway.
Check in is past the gravel campground to the back just off the golf course. It’s clearly marked where check in is located. - Alexsinclaire

The golf part might be the 'resort' but the RV part wasn't, just an open field. The staff was friendly. You have to drive past the RV area to the very back of the golf facility for check-in at the Pro Shop. The person on the phone explained this but it was still a little confusing. Maybe a little more signage would help. Still, it was more than decent for an overnight stop. Our space was not level from side to side. - Dave from Indy

Nothing to get excited about. Very basic facilities and very few campsites when we were there (maybe 10). No extras to speak of. The office staff appeared very snobbish about who they let stay there. Initially, they didn't want to allow us to stay because our Class-A motorhome wasn't brand new. Only after I pushed the issue and proved that our motorhome was nice enough for them via pictures did they allow reservations. When we arrived, the office was open but empty. Eventually, we found someone who claimed to work there but they obviously didn't know how their reservation system worked. We had an OK stay, but I was glad to get away. The campground is in a very rural area. It's quite a drive to find any decent dining establishments. If you read the campground rules, they don't allow any motorized anything. However, I did see one golf cart putting around. - revconguy1

For a park in the state park system, this park gives Alabama a bad name. The park is in a valley near the Cathedral Cavern park building. It is not very well maintained. There are no lights in the park at night. The water faucet at my site was broken and leaked badly. The bathrooms were in poor conditions with many toilets and showers not working. the sites are all gravel with little room to enter or leave the site in a large vehicle. The sites are also not level. You will need leveling pads for certain. There is no cell service in the area, no TV and no WIFI. You must go at least five miles away from the park to get cell service. The only thing we enjoyed about the park was the tour of the Caverns. This is a very beautiful cave system and a must see, but do not camp overnight at the park. - chevytrkr

We were looking for a camp site for the night near the Unclaimed Baggage store in Scottsboro, and this was close and on the way. We arrived at the state park at night without reservations but the gate to the park and visitors center was closed. We were about to leave when a Ranger pulled up behind us and pointed out that we had passed the campground road a few hundred feet back and we could just pick a spot and pay in the morning (just watch for the small campground sign on the right just after you make the last turn to the park road). He then helped us back into one of the electric back-in sites, which were actually pretty wide and long enough to allow us to keep our 16' Camper and pickup attached.
The sites are all grass, entered from a gravel loop road. The electric and water sites appear to be back-in, and there are a few primitive pull-through sites inside the loop, mostly used by tenters and class B vans.
The restroom was well lit and clean. They hope to get a dump station next year, but there was none available at this time.
This would be an excellent spot for a visit to the nice caverns at this state park, they are just up the hill at the visitors center. - johnhag

Look liked the campground has just undergone a renovation, ultra wide concrete pads. Good water pressure, Cable TV hook up was available (no short term access you need a cable box), plenty of over-the-air channels available. Phone service was strong, plenty of bandwidth if you are using this for your personal hotspot. Have to agree with some of the other reviews that the grass was high, voice this to the MWR reps who informed me the contract for maintenance was every three weeks and did offer me the use of a mower.... Knowing how MWR is structured and what they have to work with , all-in-all this is a pretty good set up. - Joelbjr

Stayed 6 weeks. Campground unkept. Grass mowing is almost nil....contracted out and only half assed mowed every 3 weeks. No edging. No weeding. No spraying for ants. Driveways all need additional gravel to level, to fill in chuckholes, etc. RV host totally useless. Water pressure extremely low. Only plus are the cement pads. - Sassygirl

I've stayed here multiple times over the last decade and have never seen this park so full of RVs. Perhaps it was the Memorial Day weekend, but I'm not certain. As other posters note, the level concrete sites have full hook-ups. No need to check in if you have a reservation; just note your name on the site sign post, pull into your site and hookup. The wifi password is posted on a wall in the very clean laundry house. The wifi signal was strong. On arrival at the Arsenal if entering Gate 9, no need to go to the Visitor Center if you have an active or retired ID card. Gate entry was smooth all three times I passed through. Diesel is not sold at the nearby Exchange gas station. Self service car wash is next to the combined gas station/Class VI. - SunStar203

Yes indeed a sleepy old campground. We stayed in site 59 and our ground fault monitor kept going off. Not sure if it was ever addressed. The 30 amp plug in is in very poor shape. Stayed here just for rest.
Take the road into camp very slowly. - James Ledbetter

This is sort of a sad little old fashioned campground. Calling it Big Rig Friendly is a bit of a stretch. Once registered we were led through most of the campground on tiny curvy roads with several pickups parked so close to our path the person escorting us had to get them to move. Finally got to a grassy site at the top of a hill with 30 amp service; not the 50 I had reserved, and so Not level our slides wouldn't come out. Let him know we were not happy and he called the office. They said we could have the one next to us which was 50 amps and they would just change the next guy's site. So had to drive around the loop so we were pointing the right way. This one is gravel, level and has all good hookups. So they did make it right after all, but we won't be staying here again. Think most sites are permanent residents, lots of very old units and pickups. - Labcrazy

Nice enough park, just seems a bit "tired". Staff was very friendly and helpful. They only take reservations over the phone and do not send email confirmations. Had me a bit unsure, but were no issues when I got here. The site itself was plenty big and almost perfectly level. Almost all of their sites are pull-thrus. The water pressure was fine, no issues with the sewer connection. The 50A service had one leg at 119V and the other at 123V. Did not cause any problems but seemed strange. The roads inside the park were rather narrow, but I was able to navigate them without serious problems. The staff will escort you to your site on a golf cart and pick up trash every morning. We were looking for a place for an overnight stop and Cullman Campground served our needs perfectly. Not sure that I would choose it for an extended stay. When you turn off of AL157, make sure you follow the signs and not the GPS. The signs are plentiful and are easy to follow. The GPS will try to send you down a gravel road with low hanging trees. - STBRetired
