Nice camp ground. Was just an overnight stop for us so we did not use any facilities. People were friendly and helpful. Bit pricey for what you get. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a difficult park to rate. There are some sites that are average while others are well below average. This is the 2nd time we have overnighted here in 3 years and I saw no improvements from 2.5 years ago. The perk is still a worn down old KOA. It is a convenient place relative to I-65 to stop and that's about it. There are many restaurants and stores within about 3 miles which adds to the convenience. They have a nice pool and the showers appear clean although nothing fancy. There are several long term residents and several rough looking sites. They have WiFi, but I didn't try using it. There is no cable TV offered, which I would expect at $40/night. This should be priced at less than $35/night before discount for what is offered. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

If you're traveling and just stopping for the night you should not worry about getting here early to spend a relaxing evening watching tv or working on the internet. There's almost zero TV reception and poor, close to no, wifi signal. Other than that the park suits our needs as a convenient stop on our route to Biloxi. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Site was gravel with a concrete patio and sloped down at the nose of the rig. Water pressure was around 40PSI and 50a electric was stable. Our site width was generous. Restroom facilities were clean and maintained. The grounds and pool were clean and maintained. Wi-Fi performance was spotty so we used our hotspot mostly. Cable was available but the over-the-air channels were plentiful and strong. We would stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I see in past reviews people complaining about the roads in the park but this isn't advertised as an elite 5 star rv "resort"....it's a campground. With that said we were quite pleased with the park....we came in the dark but found the roads very easy to negotiate. We called about 3 hours out and the gal on the phone was very friendly and made sure our check in papers were on the late night board. The park was well lit on entrance (the tasteful Christmas lights might have helped that). Our pull thru spot was a pleasant bonus when coming off the road after 10 hours of driving. To each their own opinion but if traveling thru this area again I would gladly stop here again and recommend it to others as well. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well kept grounds, restrooms, laundry area and office staff on site. Multiple trailers that appear to be permanent. Some shade and some pull through sites for short term renters. No TV cable and internet is spotty.

Water and sewer hookups appear to be in all sites. If you can get used to the trains at night not a bad long term. No restaurants or shops in walking distance except a Home Depot. Just off interstate 65 exit.

High season STARTS in April. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

1 night stay. They were able to accommodate us with a pull thru so we did not have to unhook our toad. We have a 32' MH & with the toad attached, we used up all the space. Some roads paved, some pea gravel. Sites were pea gravel, level and easy access to FHUs. Trash pu at site.
This is an older campground that appears to be cared for on a daily basis. Our check in was smooth and the attendant was very friendly and helpful.
We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for one night on the way to Barber Vintage Motorcycle Festival.
It is about a 25 minute drive to Barber Motorsports.
The campsite was long enough for a pull through including the tow-dolly. Gravel and some grass. Some broken concrete "patios"
WiFi was adequate. TV reception limited. Did not use any facilities.
Rules were quite detailed and a big turn-off, as one did not feel that they could relax for fear of breaking a rule!
Be sure to call for directions. Mapquest did not recognize County Road 33, and neither did Garmen.

Keep windows closed and something running inside to drown out the train horn at 2:30 am...that sounded like it was coming right through the campground!

The person I spoke with on the phone was very accomodating and gave good directions.
Not fancy, but worked fine for us. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a rough campground if you are in a big rig, the overnight sites are on the side of a hill, Roads are in need of help. I had my coach so twisted to get level that I was afraid to put out the slides. It is almost full tonight with overnighters, would have been better off at walmart down the road. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times, and found it more friendly and cooperative than past stays. We wanted full shade and were assigned a different site. I agree that some sites and drives need some improvement but overall the quality is excellent. No cable, but air TV was enough. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Good park for an overnight or two while traveling. Not far off interstate. Large enough to be able to walk at end of a long day. Sites seem either really good and level or sort of scrappy and not level - ours was great. Railroad tracks nearby so you hear a whistle now and then (you barely hear the train) Wooded. Lots of song birds. We'd stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Roads have deteriorated over the years and are rough, sites are very poorly maintained. This is our 7th stop here since 2005. They now do Not have cable TV even though it is still advertised, but there are signs in the office. Overnight only!! We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
