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

Pos: Grounds very well groomed. Clean. Gravel roads smooth and wide enough. Dog run large enough and fenced shaded. Staff friendly. Pool clean, small but large enough to cool off. Negs: Spaces gravel just wide enough for RV. You will have to walk in grass. They had just cut grass after being long. Grass clippings on everything. Space was a little off level but not terrible. One sheet half inch plywood under tires did job. Space between RV pads very tight. If you and your neighbor have slides, there will be no space between RVs. Only 4 public bathrooms/shower stalls. Map shows two bathhouses but friendly maintenance man chuckled and said they "been working on it since April but ain't done yet." Of the four bathroom/showers, three were locked at 11:00am on Friday for some unknown reason. Maintenance said sometimes they get locked accidentally and sometimes owner locks when need cleaning. Owner will probably check them later when she gets off her other job. He did not have a key. When I asked him to please check with owner since I am staying with four persons, and two are girls, he was more concerned my tire was one foot in the grass and told me owner was going to "get on to me about that." The owner, however, was very nice, and I never saw her checking my area for tire tracks. Bathhouse has no a/c, no vent fans, a four inch screened roof level opening where flat tin roof meets block wall for ventilation. The screens kept out the bugs. However, In July, it gets very hot and steamy in the shower/bathroom. You get sweaty before done drying off from shower. All the 50-amp slots very close to Hwy 72, 75-ft away. This Hwy connects Huntsville to Chattanooga. Very busy. Highway noise and vibration is bad. Speed limit on the section is 65. Lots of loud, fast trucks. Overall - I would stay here again since it is very close to Cathedral Caverns. It is clean, manicured, good location, easy access. - DA TT

It's obvious that the owners have tried very hard to make this a nice place. There is mini golf, a pool, a meeting place with a place for a fire, and a community room. I saw some people in the pool, but we didn't use it. We didn't see anyone using any of the other amenities. The park was very clean. There were some smaller trees. They had wifi, but it was spotty though sometimes useful. T-mobile reception was awful. Our AT & T hotspot worked, as did a Verizon phone. The campground is right next to a busy highway, and we could hear highway noise. The sites were narrow, so you were standing in your neighbor's site when getting something from the non-entrance side of the camper. The sites were OK on the other (entrance) side, but still narrow. The picnic tables were on the small side, seating only four people rather than the usual six seat size that we usually see. The office is only open from 1:00-5:00. They are closed on Sunday. They had a bathhouse at end of the park, as well as restrooms near the pool. Two of the four restrooms at the end of the park were unlocked when I used them, and neither of them had a soap dispenser by the sink. The laundry room was in its own building and was OK - two of the three washers worked, and there were two dryers. It was $1.50 to wash; $1.00 to dry. They tried to make it nice with a very large folding table, cart to move laundry around, and a magazine and book rack, but they were missing a chair to sit in and it had no air conditioning or fan. There was a small bench outside under an small overhang, but I wouldn't have wanted to sit there if it were raining. I ended up sitting on the floor while waiting for the laundry to finish. The impression we had was that this was an older campground that was missing a few things, but again, they appeared to be trying. - Morning Star

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

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

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

Very nice campground. The area for weekend visitors has long pull-through full hookup 50 amp sites with gravel and no grass. Across the driveway is a large grassy area to take your dogs. No picnic table. Very nice landscaping between the sites and a little pond with lilypads. It is gated so they give you a code to get in and The staff leads you to your campsite on a golf cart. The water pressure is a little low at 40 PSI. If you arrive from Arab or Union Grove on AL 69 it will be on the right side. This way is easier to see the entrance sign and safer because you don't have to cross the other lane on a hill. It's a quiet and relaxing campground with seasonal campers. Guntersville has lots of shopping and restaurants and is a fisherman's paradise. - Lini

Upon our arrival, we couldn't help but notice the 5.1 mph speed limit sign! We got a good chuckle out of that, but I could swear that one lady was cruising along on her golf cart doing AT LEAST 5.5 mph!!! haha. We met the "Sheriff" at the gate. Park manager wears a baseball cap that says Sheriff and his golf cart has a blue light on top, so he patrols the park. We called him when we were about 15 mins out to alert him of our ETA. He let us in upon arrival, & led us to our camp site. Check in was as easy as handing him our card at the site, he swiped it with his phone, handed us a receipt, and voila! We were checked in. Easy peasy! All sites are gravel, long and spacious, and pull-thru. Our site could have easily fit two of our 26' Class C rvs and a long bed pick-up. I believe only permanent residents (along the perimeter of the park) have concrete pads. The park is set up so that all traffic flows in one direction. Big rigs should have no trouble maneuvering. We were quite pleased with the fact that the power (both 30 and 50 amp), water, AND sewer hook-ups were located alongside the rig in a grass strip, about 5' wide, that separates each site. So convenient!! Just a few steps from our rig was the bathrooms and laundry building - all of which were meticulous and roomy. We were there in January, so the grounds were bare, but I can imagine that this place is gorgeous in the spring, summer and fall. The grounds are well maintained and there is a pool patio area with picnic tables, benches, soda machine, a swing set for children. Also noticed horseshoes, a gold fish pond with a small waterfall, & walking trails. There are fire rings around the park. Wifi and cell signal were excellent. Park is pet friendly. The only downside was the amount of traffic noise we heard from the road, but when trees are blooming, it should buffer the noise. Everyone was friendly and nice. We enjoyed our stay. - GaTripsters

Great service and amenities with many recreation opportunities and onsite dining, dog park, OTA TV service. Sites are close together like most parks and need much more gravel (some sites have none). Cement Patio was at or below grade so dried slowly and difficult to remove mud from recent rain and prior occupants. Got a lot of mud on my truck and trailer due to insufficient gravel. - AL RVer

We stayed here on a trial membership to OCP. This place must have done a lot of work since some of the previous reviews. It has all the facilities listed in reviews plus excellent Wi-Fi and AT&T service. Due to the time of the year it had only a few campers. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was the lack of limestone at our exit door but while we were there they had a tractor hauling and spreading at other sites so I assume they will all be repaired. Our kids are grown so it's just the two of us but I can see that it is an excellent place for kids. Indoor and outdoor pools, put put gulf, basketball, volleyball and tennis court, etc. It is a resort, not just a campground If we decide to purchase a membership it will be because of this campground - dlfishing

Bought a membership in March. Pro's. Staff is great. Very well maintained. Con's Very crowded during holiday periods. Constant parade of golf carts, ATV's cars and trucks from daylight until quiet time. Would like them to ban all the traffic unless arriving or departing. Way too much traffic, don't feel safe when walking or biking due to constant traffic. - Esccargot
