Stopping off point for 1 night on the way to Red Bay, AL to have my Tiffen motorhome serviced. Glad it was only for 1 night. First, several good points. Located right off Rt 280, level gravel site, good full hook-ups and good wi-fi, many over-the-air TV channels, long site so did not have to unhook, owner showed me to the site. But the not so good. Roads are gravel and quite bumpy, heavy rain recently (which they can't do anything about) but the place was very muddy, good bit of road noise being so close to the highway, have no idea where the lake is, many full-time RVs, and the price was $45 - ridiculously high for what it offers. Use it for a stopping off point, not anything else. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

An okay campground to stay at for a night. Gravel roads and mostly level sites. Looks like the place is a work in progress. Owner very nice and escorted us to our site. A bit much to pay. It looked like all sites are full hook up. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We used this campground as an over night stop to Florida. The staff we extremely friendly and escorted us to our site and pointed out locations for hookups. I don't know if there was any bathroom facilities or not. There are a lot of full time residents here. Most were construction people and I assume they were working there at the campground as they are in the process of making a lot of improvements. It is just off a busy hwy and noise was a problem but we turn our air conditioner to constant fan and it drowned the noise out. This place has a lot of potential and I think will be much improved in the months to come. We stayed there on the way to and from Florida.. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Gravel sites with red clay on top. Hookups worked great. Very friendly owner who escorted us to our site. Checks or cash only no discounts. No Wifi or cable but was able to get satellite. Only stopped for overnight not sure if we would stop again. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Where is the Lake? One unisex bathroom/shower - that's it. Next to noisy Rt. 280. No swimming pool. Not a Good Sam Park anymore. Should be priced in the $20-25 range. No site/facilities map. No Wi-Fi. No cable - told we would get a few air channel stations (no CBS or PBS). No credit cards. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Narrow gravel entrance roads. Gravel sites with full hookups. Nice shade trees. No cable. Very marginal Wi-Fi. Good 50 amp. Very friendly host with site escort. Rate is high for what you get. OK for an overnight stay if you need to get off the road. The park seems to be full of long term residents and needs some work. I had to pull grass out of the water valve box in the ground to get my fresh water hose hooked up. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fee reflects the Passport America rate, only available on Mon and Tues nights. Owners were exceptionally friendly and would rate 10/10 in our opinion. Unfortunately the campground needs some tidying and seems to be a depot for junk. The sites are all pull-through and level. Services include cable TV and good Wi-Fi connection. Laundry OK at $1 per load. Campground is full of seasonals who leave for work early in morning. Campground is immediately adjacent to 280 and the noise continues through the night. We might stop here for one evening, passing through, but would not go out of our way. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mixed feelings about this park. It is good for our purposes as a couple of days stop. Full hookup with 50 amp power and cable. Wi-Fi is weak. Site was level and well spaced. However, it is NOT a destination or family park. Most sites are long term workers who leave noisily at 5 AM. Environment offers no aesthetics (where is the lake?) and you do hear highway noise if your windows are open. Owner is very friendly and helpful but the scenery is not the best. We would use it as a stopover again, but not as a "destination" park. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Like previous reviews, this is not a destination park. However, it is fine for an overnight. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a level pull through site. We are self contained so the lack of facilities didn't bother us. However, I am a light sleeper and it was too close to the noisy road for me. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night only on the way to our destination. When we saw a collection of rusted out, abandoned vehicles near the entrance we almost turned around...but one of the employees came out to us and convinced us to stay. I have to say the owners were really nice, but that's the only thing good about the park. It is horribly run down and dirty...the "office" is located in a run down trailer with rusted junk all around it. There is only one bathroom for the whole park, and it is located in an added on room in the back of that trailer - the door had to be held closed with a folding metal chair. The fee is collected at the site - cash or check only. The playground is a collection of run down, filthy, moldy old plastic toys that look like they were collected from the side of a road. Again, in all fairness, the owners couldn't have been nicer...the site we stayed in was level and it did have some grass and gravel. The best way to describe this place is VERY rustic South. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

As others have pointed out, this isn't a destination park. It's one you where you overnight on your way somewhere else. Lots of permanent residents. Owner very pleasant. We called ahead. He met us with golf cart and took us to our site. Asked if we needed anything, offered to help set up and invited us to come to the entrance and sit around and visit with the locals. Good power, water, cable (76 channels he boasted of) and sewer. Easy in and out. We certainly recommend this CG for exactly what it is. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were only here 1 night. They were able to accommodate our truck w/boat and MH w/toad in one long pull-thru slot. Took a walk around the park and there is a lot of old mechanical equipment and old trucks on the perimeter of the campground with trees grown up all around them. It is ok if you need a place in this area for an overnite but is not a vacation destination. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the only site available in the area. Wi-Fi and satellite available. Friendly site. Fairly basic though, but would stay again. Cash only! You must call to meet management at the camp. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fairly level (we made it work). All amenities. Easy off/on to the highway. We thought by selecting this facility a few miles off the interstate we'd be free of highway noise. Not so, the highway was close by. Payment is in cash to the owner who takes you to your site. All-in-all a good overnight campground. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Easy in and out with separate exit. VERY friendly staff. No office, owner and camp host met us at the entrance and escorted us to our LARGE pull-through site. Wi-Fi and cable TV was excellent. $20 Passport America. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
