We stayed here for four weeks as part of a UMC NOMADS volunteer mission project and would love to stay longer. Last year part of our project included updating the pavilion and bathrooms closest to the RV sites so they are now like new. There are 10 full hookup sites, three of which have 50 amp. All sites are level and the utilities worked well, except on the hottest days when everyone was running air conditioners the voltage on the end sites dropped below 105 volts. Some of the sites are shaded and some are in the sun. The camp has several hiking trails including a paved trail beside the lake that is about a mile long. The camp staff are very friendly and helpful. Be aware that on weekends the pavilion next to the RV sites is rented out for gatherings. On two weekends of our stay there were weddings and on the other weekends there were church picnics. Not a problem for us. This is a beautiful camp in the spring and fall. Winter is usually mild, but summers are hot and buggy. Also, since this is primarily a church camp, during the summer the camp is filled with, well, campers. Also, be aware that cell phone service is very weak here, but the WIFI was great at the sites. The camp has installed a booster for Verizon Wireless at the camp office. We used a cell booster in our rig and it worked well. We will stay here again. We camped at Camp Sumatanga in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hike the mountain trail up to the cross and the chapel. The lake is great for kayaking and canoeing. The Methodist church in Springville has a worship service featuring bluegrass music every Sunday.

In a beautiful valley, owned by the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church. Pros - Quiet. Nice paved and non-paved walking trails. Internet available in registration lobby about 1/4 mile away. Convenient if attending an activity at the camp. Nice playground. Cons - Distant to town, bring supplies. Bathrooms and showers connected with a large picnic pavilion used by summer youth campers, could create conflicts during day. Bathrooms in need of a major modernization effort. Tiny biting insects were very bad during the evening and morning hours. Apparently the entire camp is undergoing major financial strain and is in need of donations (according to website). We would not camp here again in June due to the insect problem, but might return in cooler months. We camped at Camp Sumatanga in a Travel Trailer.
