Sites are very tight and turning radius is tight. If we would not have had an end site, we would not have been able to pull in. The only site left was too small for our 32' Class C with a small tow vehicle. Had rained and there was mud everywhere. Sites need added gravel and at least gravel around the hookup areas and extended beyond just where your tires go. - JimBcamps

Good stopover park, tight turns from freeway in. We were in a 40' Class A towing-barely fit in site; any bigger would have to disconnect. Sites are tight, no tables. OK value for $20 but would not pay more. - Trvl4Evr

When we called on site availability the phone was picked right up. Upon arrival the office was closed and it was self check-in, no problem. We picked a site and setup. The sites are a bit rough around the edges and are not the most level sites. We had an outside rear tire lift off the ground which I do not care for. But for a one niter this place makes a great stop. There are actually a couple of gas / diesel stations at this exit. Neither the RV Park or stations are mentioned on the blue highway signs. Good fuel prices at the turn towards the RV Park. OTA TV and Verizon were both very good. We would stop again. - Bob and Inga

We reserved a site and told the site number six weeks out to assure that we would have a site near our grown kids, who were also staying here. When we arrived, we were told "we don't guarantee sites", so instead they had us park at a "site" that was behind the golf cart maintenance shed and use an Extension Cord!!! to plug in our 50 amp motor home. The best part was driving our 35' Class A down the golf cart path...no, I'm not kidding. Oh and warned to park our Jeep further back so to avoid golf balls. The "site" was uneven and the water pressure bad. The REAL campground is about a half mile away. Even if you get a site there...expect to run your a/c all the time because there's no shade. - Rv lyfe

This is a great campground. It’s nothing fancy, and is basically an open field but it’s clean, and the grounds are clean, well taken care of with great hookups. The sewer hole is down on the ground, so everything flowed the way it should...down, not up like some of the campgrounds we’ve been to.
There’s a golf course in the back where you can hear and see the golfers play.
The bathrooms are private. There’s a trailer on site with 3 private bathrooms and showers...no stalls. You go in, close the door and you have the toilet, sink, shower all right there for you, along with 2 washers and 2 dryers. Loved the private bathrooms. Showers were great with plenty of hot water.
The staff is on site in their own RV, and she frequently drives around checking on things.
Garbage bins are right next to the trailer with the bathrooms. Everything was very convenient. The campground is very secluded, private and quiet. It’s surrounded by hills of trees and woods with cow pastures. Super, super quiet. At night there’s nothing, no noise except for the occasional barking dog in the distance. Bring a flashlight, you’ll need it because it’s country dark out there.
Sites were gravel and quite level. We had no problems leveling out travel trailer.
No cable, but the Internet was the best we’ve ever had anywhere. We steamed with no lag, and had zero problems. There were only about 8 other RV’s there the entire month of our stay. More than enough room for our car, truck and travel trailer.
Just follow the green golf course signs and you’ll get there. It’s clearly marked even though you feel like your in the middle of nowhere with the twisting and turning down the dark country roads. Watch for deer on the way in, they come outta nowhere but you have to drive very slow anyway.
Check in is past the gravel campground to the back just off the golf course. It’s clearly marked where check in is located. - Alexsinclaire

The golf part might be the 'resort' but the RV part wasn't, just an open field. The staff was friendly. You have to drive past the RV area to the very back of the golf facility for check-in at the Pro Shop. The person on the phone explained this but it was still a little confusing. Maybe a little more signage would help. Still, it was more than decent for an overnight stop. Our space was not level from side to side. - Dave from Indy

Great family get away location with hiking/biking/walking trails and paths, close to boating, golf, museum, water park and shopping. A staff member drove us around the campground on a golf cart and let us pick out our spot, we chose a shady pull trough, a great perk. Although some site are tight, we felt the space between sites was ample. There are some "full timers" staying at this park due to a Facebook office being built near Huntsville, but we had no issues with anyone. The park has a store, it closes at 5ish, and has a good mix of supplies, also, Ice is cheap at $2 per 10lb bag . Gravel sites with paved interior roads. The Point Mallard Park had The Battle of Decatur re-enactment over the weekend, which was cool watch. The only thing missing was a pool, but Point Mallard Water Park is walking distance if you choose to battle to crowds and pay the $20 per person to get in. Overall great experience, clean park, we will visit again. - BTR007

This is a fun campground. Yes it is a county park but there are so many amenities that you will not be bored. We only stayed 1 night and wish we could have stayed longer. There are bike trails along the Tennessee River, a water park, a ice skating rink, playgrounds and softball fields along with soccer fields. The campsites are all shaded by the trees and are close together. We were able to get one of the pull thru sites. The campground is close to shopping, and restaurants. Cell service was excellent. We will definitely be back. - On the Road Again with Dave and Christie

Very similar to roughing it (mud and all) by the river, only with electric, water and sewer. Regardless of anything (State or personal emergencies), reservations not cancelled 7 days in advance are not refundable where other campgrounds did give us a refund due to a state declared emergency. Con's: Interface with management done only by phone. Reservation, check-in & problem resolution. Around 400 feet of very pot holed narrow driveway. Many potholes in little bit of asphalt then much more potholes in the more clay than gravel drive. (Very muddy when it rains). More long term "campers" in the park then recreational RV campers. Paper litter, cigarette butts, nuts & bolts, metal scraps found on camp sites. Bathroom & shower building is far from camping sites. Sites are close to each other. No fishing allowed. Pro's: 2 unisex bathrooms & showers were clean. Site utilities (electric, water & sewer) are convenient. Electric 30 amp circuit showed good connection and grounding. Reservation email sent with a site map document with your site. Picnic tables at each site. Nice river view. Common area gazebo with a fire pit and a little playground. Otherwise, utility hookups are located at the beginning of the pull through. If your connections are not long then your tow vehicle has to be detached and parked in front of your rig. Has the makings of a nice RV park...someday. - Sher Keb

This is a marina with an RV park. The full hook-up 30/50 amp sites have gravel pads surrounded by grass. They do not have picnic tables. The road into the park is gravel has some small holes so you have to drive slowly. We could not get anything on the satellite so we had to use the antennae for Huntsville stations. At the end of the RV park is a shaded grassy area next to the river. It has a dock, patio chairs and a great view of the Tennessee River. In the marina area is a small park with a gazebo, fire pit, benches, games and grill. It is not your typical RV park because the property also has a boat repair garage and storage for boats, trucks and trailers. The RV park also offers monthly rates. We had a pull-through site which was not on the river and did not have trees, however, some sites are on the river with trees. There are a lot of things to do in Decatur, so this park was a great home base off of Route 72/20. It is only 2 turns from I-65. This is a good place to stay when Point Mallard cannot take reservations, however, it is more expensive than Point Mallard. - Lini

I was headed from Scottsburg, Indiana to Mississippi when I called and made reservations at another local park, but upon arrival we could not fit in any of the spots they had available even after I made sure they knew I had a 42' ft triple axle trailer that I was pulling with a long bed 4 door 4x4 dually. We had been on the road all day and 5 miles from Decatur we had a blow out and were really ready to get off the road. I called Jay Landing from the first park drive way and explained my situation and they said that they would get us into a spot even if we had to pull across a couple of spots. Wow I was ready. I want to mention that this RV park is owed by our Veterans - God bless. It looks like they are making some improvement to the park. Pros - It is right on the water, so you can fish or just sit and watch the boats go by, the staff is very accommodating, water pressure is great, close to town, and it can be very peaceful when the metal yard is not active (it really wasn't that bad). Cons - the road coming in is rough (they grated it today and that helped some), there is a metal yard behind the park that can be noisy, needs some TLC. I have been RVing for a very long time. Is this one of the nicest parks I have ever stayed in - No. BUT, I had just had a blow out, showed up at a park that could not accommodate me, needed to get a new tire (there is a Good Year right across the road) and when I called and explained the mess I was in they said they would do whatever it took to get me in a spot for a few days even if they had to pull me across a few spots - kindness goes a long way with me. Another review mentioned a semi sharp curve to get in the park area - we just backed up once and came right on in. If I was passing by Decatur and needed a place to stay I would stay here again. - 42 Raptor

While this is definitely not a destination park, it is perfect for a stop over location. We had been traveling and doing stuff for 3 weeks and just needed a place to stop and relax for a bit. This is a great place to do some laundry, go shopping and get some chores done. It is well maintained, clean and the office staff is very nice and accommodating. Laundry was clean and large. It has a large dog run and with such a big community, there is plenty of room to talk a walk in the evenings. - Moo1966

Our site was close to the highway, with some road noise, but not bad after dark. Lot of transient workers, with only a few overnight camping sites. We were in site 47, which was not very level, but long enough for our towed vehicle. Power was not close to our site, used about 20 feet of our cable. Doubt if we would stay here again. - JJ & CC

The park has a separate section for people staying short term. It was about 5 miles to Athens Al and 25 to Huntsville. A good location right off Hiway 31. A 4 lane highway Padres right in front so there is road noise but it didn't affect us. Plenty of eating places, grocery stores and shopping close by. Check in was quick and efficient. - leciel19

This is a nice well kept park but be prepared to be watched like a hawk. Definitely the worst experience I have had staying at an RV park. The owner seemed nice at first but was very unprofessional a basically a big jerk in the end. It felt like we were staying in some type of prison and we could hardly breathe without getting in trouble. The speed limit in the park is 10 mph but if you go 8 mph you might as well be going 75. The whole experience was a joke and nothing like anywhere else I have stayed. I was so happy to take my business elsewhere after being there for one month. - Kevin Lasson

This is a very nice park in a country setting, the area is hilly but the sites all appear to be level. The utilities were well located and in good working order. I did not connect to sewer. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and you could tell that they took a lot of pride in their park. The bath was modern and clean as a pin, very nice. It is a ways over a very crooked small lane to get to but I would stay here again. - trav

Yes indeed a sleepy old campground. We stayed in site 59 and our ground fault monitor kept going off. Not sure if it was ever addressed. The 30 amp plug in is in very poor shape. Stayed here just for rest.
Take the road into camp very slowly. - James Ledbetter

The owner was very accommodating and stated that when we arrived and if he wasn't there just to pick any site. Very friendly and helpful about the area. Electric, water and sewer were good. Site was gravel but level and owner was congenial and helpful. Most there were engineers on temporary assignments to Redstone Arsenal and very quiet and peaceful. All sites had travel trailers and appeared clean and orderly. There are washers and dryers but we did not use them. Nice no frills park that we would use again. - Bobc6694

We stayed here for a week, while surveying the Huntsville area for retirement location. We called ahead and the manager told us that if he wasn't there (having hand surgery that day), to just pick a spot and we'd settle later. It's easy to find: midway between Lacey's Springs and Morgan City, and on the west side of US-231. Mostly long-term singles/couples in this park: most working at Redstone Arsenal, but everything is neat and well-kept, and it's quiet (and no dogs running loose).
It's an older park, but water/sewer/electric are all in good repair, and there is a small building with washer/dryer (and shower still in-work). (Figuring you ought to be fully self-contained at this park.) Our site was level, and plenty long for our 35-footer and TOAD. It's not a "destination," nor would we call it "kid-friendly," but it sure is a nice place to hang your hat while visiting the area, or passing through. - johngalt

We stayed here while visiting family that lived just a few miles away. It was a nice, quiet park. We had a pull-through site that required little leveling. No amenities here (they do have a laundry and rest room, but it is an old trailer with a bathroom and one washer and dryer). Very nice owners who live on site. We would stay here again when visiting family. - SheilaB104

I want to share that recently we got really bad service from the Decatur/Wheeler Lake KOA near Decatur, Alabama. First, we arrived early - about an hour before scheduled arrival. We were coming from another time zone. They charged us an early check-in fee. Second, we planned to stay 2 nights. During the day in between we had no water to the campground. They knew at check-in that there was a problem. Did they warn us at check-in so that we could fill our freshwater tank? Nope. All day I was told that the water would be on in an hour. Still no water when I went to bed that night. They could have told us that it was going to be out all day and we would have moved to another campground. I've sent a number of emails to the camp with no response. I'm not asking for a full refund; just one day's worth. I am not complaining about KOA in general. We use them a lot. I just won't use that one again. - jprder

For a KOA this campground has a lot of work to do. Although most of the sites have a view of Wheeler lake the full sites with electric/water/sewer do not. Our site was right on the lake which was beautiful. P21. The electric/water sites have views or are right on the lake. Perfect for kayakers, canoes etc. although the shoreline is a little rough. The sites are gravel and narrow and full of weeds. The sites also hadn't been picked up or mowed when we were there. You are also out in middle of nowhere so bring all the food and items with you, it at least 20 to 30 minutes to a town with all the amenities you want. There is no pool but they do have a beach with sand on the other side of the campground. They also have some sites that could manage 2 campers at a time. We camped here in the middle of April and the place was empty. Nice but could be really improved on especially since this is a KOA campground. Not your typical KOA. Bring everything with you as Decatur is 20-30 minutes away. - Timothy4

The good thing about this park is that it's in a beautiful locale on Mallard Creek. If you're a boater or a fisherman it's great. Also they have spaces together for groups of three units to camp together. It is about 10 miles from any shopping. Unfortunately not all the "amenities" they list are actually operational. They only have 5 full-hookup spaces and they are not near the lake. There is no WiFi except in the office. Our space had trash and many cigarette butts from previous campers. The bathrooms have no electrical plugs and are not cleaned on a regular basis. The women's shower had cigarette butts in the shower as well as dirty washcloths....two days in a row. Another shower was full of ants. They encourage you to pay another $10 for a gate key or you have to wait at the gate to be let in. As other campers have mentioned the roads are narrow and the gates narrower still. The morning we were leaving the tornado warning siren went off....we tried to call the office (after 9 a.m.) and only got a recording. When it stopped as we were gathering our pets to find shelter we realized it was a test. It would have been considerate to inform campers when they check in that they have the test every Monday! We would not stay here again. - Catsinatrailer

Excellent location in the woods just off the interstate. Unpaved and ungraded road in. We had a pull-through that was long enough that we didn't have to unhitch the toad. FHU with 30 Amp. Mostly permanent residents in trailers. Free roaming pets, so we had to watch our step any time we left the MH and wipe our shoes often. Each site has a septic vent. Between the droppings and the vents, the pines were not the fragrance we experienced. The exit U-turn among the trees is pretty tight for a full size Class A. I would not have wanted to try it without a spotter. We will not be returning. - LandSchooner
Apr 2010 - $22.00
The campground had what was promised: a level pull-through site, electric, water and sewer. The rest rooms, laundry, and office were in terrible shape. Most campers were permanent residents. The campground was once listed in Woodall's, but no more. Cash or check only. - Illinois_Snowbird

We stayed 3 nights (total cost $66). Campground office is the same as the marina fuel dock. It's a relatively small campground with lots of trees. That's good. But the place seemed to suffer from a profound lack of maintenance: 1) The road circling the campground was breaking up. There were many potholes including one in front of our site approx 2' x 3' x 10" deep. I was able to avoid it, but that wasn't easy. 2) The water connection was in a box below grade. The handle on the water spigot was stripped -- I had to use a pair of pliers to turn the water on/off. 3) The grounds were not mowed. There was a lot of tree detritus (small branches, twigs, etc) all over the ground. 4) Several sites (most?) appeared to have tire tracks next to the RV blacktop pad as if RVs had difficulty maneuvering in / out of the site (I had to jockey around a bit but managed to stay on the blacktop). 5) As I walked across the circle, there appeared to be lots of tire tracks in the dirt / mud. 6) The dump station is weird. It's more like a marine pumping station, with a long hose and pump rather than a place to dump. There were connectors (with directions posted), however, so theoretically you could connect to an RV tank to dump. However, the first foot or so of those connectors were rigid so I could not get it into my motorhome bay to connect to dump. And if you accidently have spillage, there's a hose and nozzle but no place to wash it down. 7) We did not use the restroom or showers. In the men's room, there were (maybe 6) showers with a chair (was it to block the shower?). Most had a shower curtain wadded in the middle of the shower floor. We used this as a base of operations with day trips to Scottsboro and Huntsville so we really weren't in the campground much. The only way we'd stay here again is if we couldn't find another reasonably-priced campsite. - arboldt

Quiet campground at a marina on the Tennessee River. Sites are moderately level, large enough. Some long-term residents. All were friendly. Staff was helpful. Dump station is a pump intended for boats. Fitting was wrong for RV so ended up spilling some and carrying the rest to the next campground. - William Custer

Not a bad place to stay if you want to fish and boat. The main draw back, no sewer sites and it's under a canopy of trees. - TheTideRide
