Very friendly and helpful staff which includes a park ranger. The park was full this weekend with a group of archery competition and the Dixie division military group showing their military replica vehicles. The park was very clean and they now have sewer connections on all sites.
The park has a pool, the ironworks furnace and lots of trails as well as a couple of cabins that have artist and leather crafts. They also have great cabins we have stayed in on other occasions and bingo on Friday nights. Spaces range from close togetherness to lots of extra room depending on area.
Great place to enjoy quiet weekend and meet and make new friends. - Tweety522

Whoever set up the camping at this park has never been to another campground. We paid for an "electric and water" site. Turns out it was primitive camping on the side of a hill with dips, dirt, mud, rocks, and fallen branches but no actual sites. The water and electric were a few connections spread out over the entire space. There was no spot to camp with an RV where you could reach both, and nothing actually level or cleared off. We ended up paying extra for a site with sewer (we had no need for a sewer site). These sites looked like RV parks being small and close together but without the concrete pad.
We asked for a map of the trails and got an old handwritten map that they said wasn't accurate with small lettering and had been copied so many times we couldn't read it. If they have bathroom and/or showers here, I never found them. They aren't near the campsites. There's a pool here that they make a big deal that it's "clean" so that was scary. We don't plan to return here. - J and C

Extremely nice staff. Beautiful little state park. We stayed in the 'hollow' which has water and electric. Huge width on sites. A few might take a big rig. Lots of trees and a fire pit on site. Roads are dirt and narrow. Sites are a bit tricky to get into but worth it. Great little trail in the woods to walk. They do not take reservations but you can call and find out availability. Restrooms were older but clean. We would definitely stay here again. The rate we had was for Seniors. Best deal we have had in a while! Wifi and cell service is very weak but usable. - joans8849

This is a large state park with many local residents getting away for the weekend. Since we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, many were pulling out leaving the park only half full. Our plan was to stay a couple of days to see the iron works. Unfortunately we discovered that the historic attractions are only open on the weekends leaving our reason for staying a moot point. The park is heavily wooded, making satellite TV reception spotty. Some sites had a small window for their portable antenna, but most did not. There is no over-the-air TV reception. We were only able to get one of the three satellites needed for complete reception. The sites a level gravel with P/W/S connection close. Glad I ran the fresh water before hooking it up because it ran with dirt and rust until it finally ran clear. I suspect this was due to it's lack of use in some time. The park needs some TLC due to the condition of the interior roads. We ended up leaving after one night due to our disappointment. We would not stay here again. - 2sunkid

We stayed one night on a Monday so the park was less than 1/3 full. We could ride our bikes, visit the furnaces, and use the showers with no lines or crowds. The beauty of the wooded setting is lessened with all 200 campsites and cabins are full. No WiFi. We found many Birmingham TV stations with only our antenna. Showers had privacy, hooks for clothes, and unlimited hot water with strong pressure. Sewer hook ups were available in other sections of the park. - WNC Traveler

This park does not take reservations. It's first come first serve. We were given the option to drive around and pick our site. Sites are very close together. Our fee was $21.25 for water and electric. While driving through the park we noticed dump station was across the creek in Camping Loop 3. It was so disgusting we did decide not to dump when we left the next morning. The scenery is pretty and the fall colors were beautiful. We did not get to see the museum as it was already closed. The campsites could use some TLC. The park map we were given at check in was pretty useless. - MelindaK

***Out of business*** This campground sold out to Loves Truck Stop and is no longer in business. Loves has demolished the campground and is in the process of turning it into a parking lot for 18 wheelers. - Luv2rvbig

Okay overnight stop for us, though it's a little past its prime. Friendly, helpful owner. Wi-Fi works well (after resetting router), good cable TV. Gravel roads in fairly good repair and our gravel site was "levelable" with a bit of lumber. Some have park model utility set-ups, but ours was standard RV style. Shaded, but pretty noisy. Kind of hard to find. It's behind the Love's truck stop. Apparently, the State has plans for the right-of-way, so the sign is pretty much invisible. Call park for directions. Wouldn't make a point of going back, but okay for a night. - Sonic

Very friendly host. That was the best park of this park. Many rundown permenent sites. We had a long pull through so we did not need to unhook, and we are about 55 feet long. It is tight getting through the park. It's about 1/4 mile off interstate, so a good overnight stop. There is a nice small pool. Cable TV was good. Way overpriced, even with the Good Sam discount. If this were a half price campground, we might consider staying here again, just for an overnight. They are building a Loves truck stop that backs right up to the park. This could add to the already loud noise from the interstate. - BLT101

We stayed here one one night. $29 for full hook ups and a concrete pad? Excellent. There's only one shower, but access to the toilets. The bathhouse is very clean. There are OTA channels (we were able to watch the World Series) and cell service and WiFi are decent. - K20

The site was in the east section of the park (across the street from the office and older section of permanent residents). The east section was modest and used for storage by Alabama Roll Tide fans. Our site was gravel with concrete patio, site was fine for a 2 day stay. Close to county road but traffic noise was not bad. - SmokyRV135

The bathrooms look old but are fairly clean. The campground is nice with really great people. The WiFi actually works! Compared to other campgrounds we’ve been at. - AliciaMargarita

Took 3 days to contact someone about reservations. They don't normally have pull through to accommodate a 60 ft total, motorhome + toad, but the manager found a site, 34, that worked for us. Seemed to be mostly campers for workers in the area, their sites were neat. No amenities except for a dog area. - dlfishing

During football season this park has two sections: one for seasonal tailgaters (you won't get into it if you don't lease it for the season), and one for everyone else. Both are gravel, no trees, no tables. Most of non-tailgater section (where we were) is occupied by people working temporarily in Tuscaloosa and other long-termers. While the tailgater section is angled pull-throughs with more space between units, the other section is tightly packed un-angled pull-throughs with little maneuvering room. The pedestals are shared between spaces, thus you are back-to-back and front-to-front with your neighbours. If you don't like interstate noise this park is good, as it is sufficiently away from I-20. If you don't like train noise, you are out of luck here. There is a very busy track so close you think they're coming through the park. Don't expect any aesthetic satisfaction. The place is hot, dusty and without any pleasant views whatsoever. There are no discounts during football season, even when the team is playing away, and even in the non-tail-gater section. Also there is a $5 "service" charge. On the positive side, the manager was nice, the utilities worked well, and all the RVs and vehicles in the place were clean and modern. No junk. None-the-less, I believe I will select another location on my next visit to Tuscaloosa. - Tidy Boy

This is a real gem about 10 miles east of I-65 an hour south of Birmingham. Is a very small park, only 18 sites, but in a really pretty setting. Need to arrive by 6 in order to get a gate code from the Ranger. Can be done on line, but this was a last minute stop for us. Pad was concrete and very easy to back into, they all are at this park. Half the sites are FHU with good 50/30 amp service, and water pressure. Very safe and secure area to stay in while traveling. Long way to town, so if you need anything, get it before you arrive. - BWolfAR

If you arrive at night, like we did, the drive into the park and to the camp area will seem eerie, as there are no street lights along the way and few signs of civilization except for speed limit warnings. The grounds have a dozen or more camp sites with water and electric, although some had the water shut off when we were there in early Nov. If you have to use restroom facilities, they are available at the beginning of the road that leads to the camp sites, which means a longer hike for relief than at most camp grounds. Take a flashlight if you're going at night, as there are no streetlights along that stretch. There is one streetlight at each end of the campground, however. There are no showers, just toilets and a sink, kept clean. The grounds are surrounded by forest and are quiet (except when motorcyclists are on nearby trails). There's no vegetation encircling each site, so there's no privacy. Each site has a concrete area for a picnic table and RV. The grounds are several miles from stores, restaurants and service stations. The grounds apparently are closed Mon.-Wed., so we were asked when I made reservations to call a park employee an hour before arriving to get the code to open the entry gate. We paid the next morning. I'd definitely return when in the area. We had a partial hook-up, with electricity only. - John_K

We decided at the last minute to go to an Alabama football game. As expected, RV sites were impossible to find. Called Sunset RV park and they said they had space at this park, their overflow park. As previous reviews state, it is a gravel parking lot with hook ups. For our purposes, it was fine. In fact, it is only 4 miles down the road to the stadium. It was surprisingly quiet at night. - Traveling Golfer

We were surprised that our 1st choice for a nightly stop was filled. So we grabbed our old campground directory and picked the next available park to the west. The only good news was that their regular park, (Sunset Travel Park) which adjoins, but sits below I-40 was filled. We were directed to the overflow park Avalon RV Park. It is just a gravel parking lot with working W/S/E. No obvious trash receptacles, so I walked our bag to the nearby sister campground which had a trash bin. The nearby train added to the low rating. We'll add this to our any port in the storm list. - BobatRetama

Bare bones: new gravel parking lot with utility posts. Lots of long term residents/workers. Adequate for an over night, but close enough to a city to have the noises, sirens, motorcycles, etc. No interstate noise, but there's a late night car wash and light industrial. Don't go on the week-end. The bar across the street faces the park and notorious for noise, etc. So says the manager. Passport America rates. You have to stop into Sunset RV park (practically underneath I-20) to pay and get a map. - mrfixer
