One of five RV campgrounds owned by the Bear Creek Development Association in the area between Red Bay, AL and Russellville, AL. Good, paved access roads with reasonable clearance. Some of the sites are not level or paved. Nice views looking out over the lake. Has camp store and a camp manager on-site. Friendly and helpful, but I had a problem with the electric supply going over-voltage, sometimes as high as 135 VAC and tripping my EMS off-line. The camp manager passed the concern on to the main staff, but nothing was done and the problem persisted the entire stay. I eventually had to use my generator to protect from the voltage spikes. 22 of the sites are for seasonal campers, and the rest are on a first-come, first-served basis. You need to call the camp manager the day before and see if there are any spots available. They will know if there are any accommodating sites at the other campgrounds as well. Looks like it is a well kept secret for the local population. - Good Vibes

We needed a place to stay for a few days before we had work done on our motorhome. This was perfect! The setting along the water with lots of trees is beautiful. We had a pull through site in the middle of the campground, but still walked around and enjoyed the public area where you can walk to the water. There are lots of locals who leave their trailers here and treat this as their weekend "lake house", so there are few sites available for transients. They don't take reservations, so that makes it a little tricky. It's a nice quiet campground, and you can walk/run/bike down the road to the boat launch and pavilion areas for a nice two miles roundtrip with mostly trees for scenery. After the work was completed on our motorhome, we came back here for another couple nights! - Roaming Together

We have been at Cedar Ridge for 1 month. Its a very nice area to explore, the campground is near a lake known for great fishing. The campground itself is very well maintained by a very nice couple, with well groomed gravel sites & great trees. Owner offers pump out service. The small store is well stocked with basic camping items as well as food & bait & tackle. A clean laundry room as well as clean restrooms with showers. There is no wifi, very limited TV reception, & the only cell service available is ATT. - jstrom

We stayed at this camp ground as it was close (5 miles) to Tiffin for service worked we needed for our 26 foot RV. I suggest you call when you get within 5 miles of exit 26. The owner can give you the directions as to the conditions at the time, rain, downed trees, accidents, etc. He will be waiting for you at the entrance to show you to your site and check you in. Don't, I repeat don't, use online mapping or other wise. We did that on two different sources and they had us turning on exit 30. My directions were as follows: Exit 26 is where you get off interstate 22, 3/4 mile to stop sign, turn left on 253 south, stay on 253 s, at 1/2 mile you come to a fork in the road, take left side staying on 253s, 3 miles from fork, rv park is on the right. The road to the park is great, no tight turns or bad conditions. Pros: small park campground (8 sites) with full hook ups, water tastes very good. A wooded park-like setting, gravel roads and rv site. It is very quiet here, a bit like a state park in the middle of the week. A wooden platform with bench for grilling or hanging out. Grass on all 3 sides and large enough back in site for a much bigger unit than us. 20/30/50 amp service. Some big rig sites (saw 3 arrive while we were there) and none had issues with roads in park or with parking. Our site was almost completely level, only needed one level block on left side. Know before you book: You will not have swim pools, inflatable children's equipment, go cart rentals, bathhouses, out houses, dry cleaning or laundry service or zip lines. This park is for those that have the ability to utilize their own bathroom/shower and cooking needs. - hiker13

If you like quiet and back in the woods, this place is for you. The owner was very helpful and our dog loved the woodsy environment. We were in a 40 ft motor coach and were finally able to level, but the park was built before the advent of such large vehicles and we may have been on one of the only sites that could accommodate us. This is a great place for smaller campers or tents though. Few amenities are provided but power was great. We did not hook up to water or sewer as we only stayed one night. The roads were fine if a bit twisty, but we were able to navigate with care. - Chasdalex

An off-the-beaten track RV Park. Okay for an overnight stay since there aren't many campgrounds in this area. Access roads are narrow with steep ditches on both sides, but we didn't have trouble getting our 37' RV to a site at the top of the hill. Would recommend disconnecting tow vehicle before starting up to sites. Very quiet and secluded but no amenities, bathroom or shower. Very friendly and accommodating owners. Led us to the site and help get us parked. Payment is with cash or checks only. - Good Vibes

Overnight stay in wooded setting. When arriving there was a note to call for the gate code. We never got any checkin information but we didn't have a problem. Nice trail down to an overlook for the lake. - lce3

My wife and I went up for a short fall weekend getaway in early October. It was easy to find and well marked. There are 2 campground areas. We stayed in the Yellowhammer loop which had more foliage and shade than the other. Our spot was 20 and was on the inside of the loop which was not our preference but the park was almost full when we got there (due to online reservation system being updated we couldn't reserve online for that weekend). Foliage between spots was tress and saplings....no real low lying growth so you could easily see other campsites through the foliage (which is not our preference). The site was level and had everything you would need...even sewer. Easily long enough for my 22 foot trailer and our suburban. There were a few downers.The fire ring was permanently anchored in a narrow corner near the road. The hot water heater in the bathhouse right up the hill from our site was broken so that shower was not useable, and the shower in the men's bathroom at the other bathhouse in our loop was out of service....but there was a handicapped shower/bathroom that worked....but it had no bench or anything to put your clean clothes on...just the sink and the toilet....and everything on the floor was wet because the shower splattered all over the bathroom.....making it hard to get dressed without things getting a bit dirty and wet again.... needs to be fixed (particularly the hot water heater). The lake water was beautiful....amazingly clear.... the water level was down about 8 feet from normal however...don't know if this is just normal for this time of year, or if they had drained it for some reason.....you can see where the regular water level is and that would make the lake stunningly beautiful, but what you saw was a lot of orange dirt/rock and stumps that would usually be below the water line.....so might want to check on the water level sometime if you go if you want it to look it's best. All in all a good camp out, but not the best - Marciekaputnik

I love finding places like this - off the beaten path, gov't area (whether federal or county or town) that might not get all the attention as easily accessible KOAs, etc... The forest and lake are inviting as is the history of the campground which can be seen in the CCC walls and other work scattered around the park. It isn't too far off the highway. I was confident we didn't need to make a reservation ahead of time, but I did anyway ($10 fee). Only certain sites are reservable online. We reserved site 9 in the Yellow Hammer loop. When we arrived I asked about switching and the man at first said normally they don't do that but since he had just killed a feisty copperhead on site 9, he was just fine letting us move. Thank you. We ended up in site 18 which is "lakeside" but really, no site has lake views and the sites are up a hill from the lake. Plenty of trails, though, to get to the lake and do little hikes around. Site 18 is long as several were. Also, a fair amount of pull-thrus but my husband thought that they were too curvy to guarantee easy placement of truck and trailer. I did check out the other loop which was closed due to a plumbing issue. It had plenty of nice sites, too. Electric, water, sewer. Nice fire pits with cooking surface. Poll for hanging stuff, too. The worker said you can gather firewood. He said they go through after campers leave and if there is spare wood they throw it in the woods for safety. My husband did find plenty of wood, but later suffered from terribly itchy chigger bites so be forewarned about the woods. The rest of us did not get them. We saw a few campers that must be hosts as they were settled in for long term - a little trashy looking. We used the lake and beach. Nice for an afternoon of relaxing. Did grocery on way in - good enough selection. Nice spot, recommend and use bug spray or stay out of the woods! Watch out for snakes, but enjoy the scenery! - MNJessieJ
