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. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Easy overnight stop. Very basic but easy to navigate and set up. The office is on the south side of the road but easy to navigate thru and go back across the road to park. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting park - it has two sections separated by a road. Check in is on the side that looks to be more full time and smaller unites. Large rigs have to check in here and then go across the street. There were a lot of units that looked unoccupied - at least while we were there. One party across from us had a few cars visiting but not that bad. Spaces were long, roads wide. We would probably stay her again if need be, but certainly not a place I would head to. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great overnight park or for couple days. No frills Has side by side hookups with concrete in between sites for all hookups. Very clean. Also has concrete patio and gravel level sites. We feel we scored. All spots are pull thru. We didn’t have to unhook our tow car. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This was just an overnight. Wouldn't do much more. Gravel parking lot with some grass in between sites that needed to be cut. FHU Cable was very fuzzy, hard to watch and WiFi was very poor. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was OK for a quick overnight but would not necessarily suggest for more than that. My husband went into the restroom to take a shower and there was a drunk man passed out against the door. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Across the road from the office and is just a large parking lot type area with hookups. No shade. OK for overnight... that is about it. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

The park is split into 2 sections. We were in the section the street from the office. The owner was very nice and pleasant. It looks more like a parking lot than a CG, but everything worked and it was OK for 1 night. During football season there is probably no space available. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 2 nights. Previous reviews were pretty much spot on. We stayed across the street from the office. Power & water pressure were good. Cable ok, 30 channels, some blurry. Gravel level site. A very convenient stop for a day or so, not a vacation spot. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

I stopped here for an overnight stay. The attendant at the registration desk was very friendly and nice. This park is divided by the roadway and I was on the side without the showers and washers. I did not use them or check them out. I did check the 50 Amp prior to plugging in and all checked ok. The cable was outstanding. Spots were level gravel and had concrete pads for patios. It was easy to pull thru. Road noise from I-20 was noticeable but it was not an annoyance. It's a great place to stop overnight with easy off/on to the interstate. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sunset RV Park in Cottondale, AL. $32.00. There are two parts to this location; the office is located on the west side, which looks to be occupied by longer term seasonal occupants; after check-in we were directed to the east side across JVC Road, we were assigned a pull through spot that was easy to access. The pull through spots all have a cement patio and a small strip of grass. The hook-ups were also on a cement pad, which is nicely mud-free. The power was stable, and the WiFi and cable worked very well. The park was clean and mostly quite, with slight amount of highway noise which we could not hear while in the coach. The park is a good overnight stop, but could not imagine myself spending more time than that. I would stay here again if passing this way in the future. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here several times before always as just a decent and convenient overnight stop. There are 2 sides - East and West. West is the side where you check in and East is across the highway. We have always stayed on the East side until this time. This time we stayed on the west side which is full of people that live there full time. Never again. Residents were rude and worst of all - let their dogs run loose and crap any place they want to - including our site. I have dogs - I walk my dogs on a leash, I clean up after my dogs and I do not appreciate people that feel that because they "live there" that they do not have to follow the rules. There are not many places to choose from in that area for RV parks so I will probably be stuck staying there again but I'm certainly not looking forward to it. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Nice enough overnight stop in Tuscaloosa. Pull throughs are across the street and have level gravel full hookup sites w/cable and wifi. Both worked great on our visit unlike some other reviews. Easy on/off from I-20. You do have to pull into the original campground on the other side to register and circle around back to the exit. Would stay again.

There no customer service. They say they supply cable and WIFI. Neither have worked since I've been here and I've called the office countless times and get the same we'll have to call someone or I've ordered the parts and I hate to change distributors ( if my distributor couldn't get my parts to me in two months I'd change) or let me not pay the 410.00 or 425.00 for a couple months I bet theyd make me change. Now everyone of them are very polite as they tell you all this but I'd rather them tell the truth rudely. The power pedestals are duct taped and most connections are broken and most of the lights on them are out. Sewer connections need work -you just stick it in - no way to secure it. We camped at Sunset Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.
