Just a nice parking lot with full hookups. They expanded to 170 spaces and fill them up for large sporting events. But other times the park seems rather empty leaving plenty of spaces between campers. Located in Hoover a very nice suburb of Birmingham. Since the park was very empty I could park the toad at the site next door. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Someone was in my assigned site when I arrived, but the staff was really helpful and let me pick another site. Nice park, level sites, shade on some sites. Close to Birmingham, lots to do! We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived to find the site I had reserved and paid for four months earlier was occupied. There is no campground management on site in this city owned operation. The park is basically a large parking lot with wide but short sites with full hookups. Because of the hookups, RVs are alternated. Both the older and newer sections depend on grade to control drainage so no site is level. The wi-fi is very good. Birmingham is only 20 minutes away. Because we had to change sites, I received a new bill for $25, even though I had paid in full when I made the reservation. They did forgive this when I explained what happened. The new rate is therefore $30 per night. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

What else can I add. This is a parking lot with RV sites. The 40' site length is an issue. We witnessed one camper have to relocate because the adjacent RV parked their toad alongside and blocked the new arrivals site access. Unfortunately, no one was there to move the toad so they were forced to call and arrange another site. We recommend using the online reservation system to locate available sites with no one next to your RV door side if possible. Otherwise, w/e/s pedestal is conveniently placed. Water pressure was good. Electric was stable. WiFi was very good. OTA channel reception was very good with 30+ received. Our AT&T phones and hotspot received a moderately strong signal. The park was clean, safe and very good for an overnight stop. We would come back again. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Hoover Met Complex is worth coming to see by itself. Hoover has a gem with this huge, magnificent sports complex. The numerous outdoor activity fields and walking tracks were actively being used while we were there. Inside the Finley Center were even more groups practicing basketball and volleyball skills. This RV park is a great place to stretch your legs and take a hike after a long day pulling the RV.

On our trip to Gulf Shores and wanting to get through the city of Birmingham before stopping for the night. This RV park was an ideal spot. It's a paved parking lot with RV sites, attached to the city's huge sports complex. There were many activities taking place but by 8pm the noise was gone. Very level sites with full hookups and lighted pedestals. Would recommend registering online because calling has extended hold times. Well lit, free wifi, trash bins throughout, and a small playground for kids. Not a lot of other amenities, but perfect for a one or two night stay if passing through or touring the area. Park was only 20% full on our stay, so we parked our toad on vacant site next to us. When park is at capacity, there are adjacent lots to park cars. You will have to drive a short distance for restaurants, shopping, and a Walmart Supercenter (less than 5 miles). I-65 traffic through Birmingham is always congested, so if headed south, this is a good stop after you get through. Would stay here again. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

Google calls it Hoover Met Complex. The stadium has an RV Park used by tailgaters on game weekends. Good place for an overnight stay when it's not game day! It's a big parking lot with full hookups. Lots of pull through sites. We just turned off the truck, put out the slides, hooked up, and heated up dinner. Easy peasey. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is just a big parking lot for the Hoover Metro sports complex. It has full hookups with 50 amp. The sites are 45' long and 18' wide, just barely long enough to get our 34 ft fifth wheel in and park the truck sideways. The hookups are on raised concrete islands and are shared. The height of the sewer hookup just barely provided enough drop to be usable for our 5th wheel. Overall, it was a good place to stay. Hoover Metro is a huge sports complex with a large event center, baseball fields,soccer fields and a football stadium. There was a big gun show going on in the event center the weekend that we were there. The reservations are all done online. The website can be a little confusing, but you can pick a specific site. Just click on "Show Available Dates for a Specific Site" toggle. The symbol will turn yellow and allow you to click on a specific site on the map and view the availability calendar. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one night enroute to Louisiana. Easy access from highway and easy to get in and out of the park. This is a large paved parking area park of a large sports complex. It was quiet when we were there - only about 25% full. Full hookups we easy to access. Well lit area that felt safe. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park was given to us by another campground that couldn't accommodate our 40' Class A. It was OK for one night but I wouldn't go back. It was a bit difficult to find and more off the freeway than i like to go. It is all blacktop with daily trash pickup (you have your own trash can), 50 amp power and great WIFI. I placed our reservation and paid on the internet so there is no one on site. Clean, level spots but with all that black top it was super hot. If there was a game going on at the sports facility there would be no room for your car. Just not my cup of tea. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

A big parking lot with full hookups in the Hoover Metropolitan Complex. No amenities but perfect for a night passing through or if you're attending an event. Very clean. There are enough grassy areas around the perimeter of the parking lots to walk the dog. It poured when we were there but drainage is good so no issues. As said previously you register and pay on line and then just drive to your spot. No need to check in. Not long enough to leave the tow hooked up but wide enough we could squeeze it beside us. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is in the parking lot at the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. Tons of identical full hook-up, pull-thu sites on asphalt. Each site has its own large trash can, which is nice. Roads are easy to navigate and utilities all work well. Our Wi-Fi was good, but there were very few people in the park. Our site was not long enough for our truck and trailer to park end-to-end, but we were able to put the truck on the side of the trailer and easily fit in our assigned space. We never saw any staff - we were assigned our site number by their reservation service and drove straight to it. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

we camped here for SEC Baseball Championship tournament. The cost was for the session which was 9 days/8 nights. No discount available. The campground manager was available when needed and was very personable and helpful. the site had full hookups, asphault lot (not much grass) and minimal trees. But, hey, we were here for the ballgames. Ideal place to camp for this tournament! Very close to shopping and restaurants. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Motorhome.
