I reviewed this park three years ago and the character of the park has changed since then. About 80 percent of the sites are now long term campers. They have also moved in camping cabins and have rental RV units available. Fortunately, the better waterfront sites are still available for short term. The three piers that used to be available for fishing are now marked for "boat owners only". There are some short term sites that are off the waterfront, but they are so unlevel, or small, they are not usable for RVs (maybe tents). The sites are gravel bordered by timbers and the waterfront sites are generally very good. The site spacing is fair, but not private. This is still a TVA property managed by an contract company. The company does a pretty good job and the staff are all friendly. There is an abundance of staff and camp hosts. Golf carts have taken over. It seems like all the long term campers, and staff members, have golf carts and there is a constant stream of them on the roads. The long term sites are kept fairly uncluttered and the bathrooms are exceptionally clean. Although the hiking trails are well marked, they have not been maintained. This campground has a "family with kids" atmosphere, although there is only a bare minimum of playground equipment in the campground. There is a small beach, a camping store with ice cream and fishing bait. Sites are power and water only - no sewer; however there is a pump-out service available for $12.72 which makes rounds twice a day. They do have a dump station, but it is slightly unlevel which results in incomplete drainage. At the time we were there, the lake was covered with weed from the shore to about 100 feet out. That made fishing difficult from the shore. There is a no website reservation capability - you must call them for a reservation. - Bama Camper

Absolutely one of our favorite campgrounds ever. The site we had was right on the lake. I could walk out the door and make a few cast and catch a fish. Everyone that worked at the park were great and willing to help with anything they could. The camp staffer that helped us with everything from the honeywagon to renting the pontoon boat was awesome. To be fair the restrooms could be upgraded but they are still very functional, especially for our needs. Roads were very good and check in staff and store staff were also exceptional. - Jimmy g

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

For a park in the state park system, this park gives Alabama a bad name. The park is in a valley near the Cathedral Cavern park building. It is not very well maintained. There are no lights in the park at night. The water faucet at my site was broken and leaked badly. The bathrooms were in poor conditions with many toilets and showers not working. the sites are all gravel with little room to enter or leave the site in a large vehicle. The sites are also not level. You will need leveling pads for certain. There is no cell service in the area, no TV and no WIFI. You must go at least five miles away from the park to get cell service. The only thing we enjoyed about the park was the tour of the Caverns. This is a very beautiful cave system and a must see, but do not camp overnight at the park. - chevytrkr

We were looking for a camp site for the night near the Unclaimed Baggage store in Scottsboro, and this was close and on the way. We arrived at the state park at night without reservations but the gate to the park and visitors center was closed. We were about to leave when a Ranger pulled up behind us and pointed out that we had passed the campground road a few hundred feet back and we could just pick a spot and pay in the morning (just watch for the small campground sign on the right just after you make the last turn to the park road). He then helped us back into one of the electric back-in sites, which were actually pretty wide and long enough to allow us to keep our 16' Camper and pickup attached.
The sites are all grass, entered from a gravel loop road. The electric and water sites appear to be back-in, and there are a few primitive pull-through sites inside the loop, mostly used by tenters and class B vans.
The restroom was well lit and clean. They hope to get a dump station next year, but there was none available at this time.
This would be an excellent spot for a visit to the nice caverns at this state park, they are just up the hill at the visitors center. - johnhag

Nice roadside RV park for a night or two. The owners were very nice. The campground is all gravel and a little hard to navigate with a big rig. Our pull through had some trees that were hitting our roof and slides. We asked to have them trimmed which was difficult for them as the used a saw with a tall ladder. I think the park needs to trim their trees before they can claim they are big rig friendly. We saw the pool, but didn't use it. I was clean but just not inviting. For the price, this park is perfect. No reason not to stay again. The power, sewer and water as advertised. Everything reached without any extensions. As noted by others, there is road noise from the adjacent freeway, but that is really why we stayed here so it didn't bother us at all. We will stay again. - WHCFULLTIME

The sites here are gravel and very level. There is grass for the picnic table and a fire ring. They are a decent size. This is a small park and rustic. It is next to highway 72 so there is truck traffic noise, we are pretty insulated so noise does not bother us. The owners were friendly and welcoming as were other campers. There are a few older permanent coaches but areas are neat and clutter free. There is a pool and mini golf. Verizon reception barely there. There is a cell tower fairly close must be AT&T. Did not check laundry or bathroom. We stayed here to see tourist spots in Huntsville. I'd go back if in the area. - TravelingParkers

First Impression: Nothing notable. Entrance road "Parnell Circle" has broken asphalt, rutted with potholes. Mini-golf course needs serious attention. Safety: no concerns. Access: US-72 about half-way between Scottsboro and Huntsville, south side of the road. From the west, there is no warning as you approach from a blind curve. At the log cabin, convenience store, signal a right turn and slow down. Make the next right past the trees. Good sign if seen from the east. Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, token store with snacks and souvenirs. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. My price is the Good Sam discount. Facilities: Salt water pool, no spa, small fitness room, rec center. Small, clean laundry room. Four, single use restrooms/showers ultra-clean, modern, well maintained (score "A+"). Propane sales. Small, clean playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Use restrooms or laundry as storm shelter. Lightly wooded. Interior roads are narrow, gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig friendly; long coaches might have problems. A few cabins but no tent area or yurts. Sites are all nicely spaced, level, gravel, pull-through and back-in, grass between with pleasant landscaping. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level. No patios. Picnic tables are aging and weathered. Most sites have fire rings. Good satellite views. No cable TV. OTA TV found 19 channels (incl ABC, CBS, NBC). Free Wi-Fi with fair coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 1 bar; 4G at 2 bars. Recycle aluminum only. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or interstate noise, but CG is beside US-72, a major, 4 lane artery with 24 hours of loud traffic noise. Bug Report (mid April): few black bees. Runners: Gravel roads unacceptable for running. Yoga: use grass areas between sites. Conclusion: Score 8-Upscale. - StephenK

Clean park with concrete or paved sites. Owner owned sites. Most are back in, although there are six huge modern pull through. Public lake access within a mile. Park roads are somewhat tight but easily negotiated. - GIJoe2011

Great Park. Ownership, but they do rent some sites. Very friendly, near lots of wilderness, hiking, parks and lakes for fishing. - User3143

A little out of the way and not on the lake, but very clean and a very friendly manager. This is a deed purchase park where unused lots are rented as camp sites. All roads are paved, and the sites are large with concrete pads and patios. Water hook up was a little inconvenient, but managable. We would stay here again. - ratracer

Campsites could be leveled better; there are a fair number of semi permanent campers. Host was helpful and friendly. There was a dump station, two bath houses, boat ramp, and good neighbors. Quiet campground located on Lake Guntersville. We will camp there again. - AU Fishing

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

Very nicely manicured park that has lots of long-term residents. For our 3 night stay we were placed in a large, wide open pull-through that was on gravel & was narrow. No table or fire pit. That being said, it was perfect for our needs (chores/errands/down time). Staff was friendly and we were completely comfortable here. There's an AT&T tower on site (seriously, surrounded by RVs so strong signal. I believe the Verizon tower was right across the street. Be careful making the left into the park, but we had no issues. - Jeporter99

This is by far the best RV park we have ever stayed at. The owners live on site and are always in the park working or socializing with guests. The owner is a real workaholic and keeps everything top notch. We stayed a month in 2018 and loved it so much we are returning in September 2019 and again in 2020. Can't say enough good things about this park. - navypoppop

This is by far the best rv park we have stayed in since going full time. The grounds are immaculate and well manicured. The owners and staff here never stop working or offering assistance for what your needs might be. The pool is salt water and crystal clear, cable tv is very good as is WIFI. The game room offers a pool table, pinball machine and crafts. The pull through lots are very wide and level. There are a lot of permanent rv's here on concrete slabs and are very well maintained and everyone here is very friendly. We will definitely return here when in the area. - navypoppop
