2 RV Parks near Franklin, Alabama
Jan 2019 - $12.00
On the banks of the Alabama River. Park is quiet with great host campers, large sites and a lot of quiet. Clean power properly wired and grounded. Many of the hiking trails were under water due to the flooding so hiking was limited this time. Sites are well cared for with the exception of a couple in the back where the park ranger has not enforced the "don't leave your junk behind" rules for special friends that stay longer than the normal. If not for the junk, gas grill, lights, smoker and other items this camper left behind the park would have had a top rating. Mentioned the trash to the host and were told they have mentioned it to park staff with no results. To bad as this is a nice park. Not as remote as many have suggested. About a half hour to town for groceries and services. Town is only a half hour away so it pays to do your shopping before heading to camp. Interior roads are good but access roads are narrow so pay attention on your way in. Try to get a site on the river and not the creek if you have solar power. Fewer trees along the river. AT&T only had 2 bars so internet was weak. TV over the air had 30 channels most of which were strong signals. Sits right in the middle of hunting and fishing with a great view of the locks and dam. Night time was excellent! - Micheal Whelan

We were supposed to stay here back in November, but RV repairs caused us to cancel. My husband was very interested in staying here, so we took the opportunity on our way North. To say this is remote is an understatement, as others have said, it is out there! The campground is nice, with lots of tall trees that provide shade and block satellites, but don't give much privacy. One interesting thing, the campground loop is two lanes, so the inside pull thrus are very nice since they don't face the road.
When we hooked up we had problems with the 50amp, so we switched to 30amp. We informed the volunteer at the gate and he reported it, but didn't expect anyone to show up until the next day, which was fine. The next morning a nice man showed up and replaced the 50amp breaker in an absolute downpour! I didn't think anyone would even show with how bad the weather was, but he showed up and fixed our problem.
The restrooms were very clean, but the showers only have a single shower curtain, so they didn't feel too private. It's been quiet here, I never had anyone else in the bathhouse while I was showering, so it wasn't too bad. There is a laundry in the bathhouse, it always seemed to be in use as I walked by. There was one washer/dryer and it looked like it was $1.00 each.
If you don't boat/fish, there isn't much out here. The museum is closed until further notice, so we didn't get to visit. This is a great place to chill out and enjoy a good campfire, we bought $15 worth of wood from the country store 8 miles down the road.
We had no AT&T signal at the campsite, but we could get 2 bars and LTE by the museum. Our Verizon worked ok with our booster. - Uno Mas

This place is the pits. By far the grossest, most unpleasant place I have ever been to. The staff were mutes. They did not make eye contact or acknowledge your presence unless you were holding a credit card. The grounds are a dump. The pool is filthy and unsafe. The playground consists of pieces from the dump and a few old tires. Everyone drinks and smokes ALL DAY. We were the only sober people walking around at noon. There is nothing to do here but drink. We thought of drinking the weekend away so we would be able to deal with this place but wanted to have our wits with us in case someone picked a fight with us or tried to steal our car. Don't go here, your sanity and life depends on it. - pookyellis
