Interior roads are little tight, but doable. The section where we were was level, had nice grass and open for satellites. There was another section that was more wooded and was occupied by what looked like long term campers. Overall it was fine, but it really could use some TLC to get a higher rating from me. I would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here the night of Oct. 6 in a 30'10" FW. This park is an old KOA but is in good condition. Cable was fair and the Wi-Fi was spotty. Our site was a pull-through on gravel/dirt pad. This is a good place to stay over night and we would stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I've stayed at this campground on two different occasions, one night each time. There are lots of shade trees, a small dog area, playground equipment, a campground store, pool, and helpful staff. The lots I have had both times have been sloped so much that the leveling jacks gave up trying to correct the angle. The speed bumps and a few potholes are rough on a motorhome and its contents.

We enjoyed staying here. We were there for a softball tournament. The park was located in a good area, it had easy access. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park it self was good. The restrooms were good as well. Our only complaint is the roads need some repair and the sites/pads are tight and need some work. Overall, it's a good place. We will stay here again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Office was very good to move my reservation and accommodate me when I had to adjust because of weather up north. Sites were fine. Park seemed clean. There was little high way noise, but there was an occasional train that was close. I would stay there again. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Old KOA site taken over 15 years ago. Clean but needs to be refurbished as the pads are crumbling and not to level. About 40% of sites are FT. Cable is all fuzz but good H2O pressure. Stay 5 nights while we played the RTJ golf trail. Ross Bridge & Oxmoor Valle Ridge. Close to many services. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here two nights while visiting the area. Only reserve for the number of nights you wish to stay there are no refunds for early departures. This park is off the highway but there are train tracks nearby. While staying at this park there was an outbreak of severe thunderstorms/tornado. The office staff told us where to go if we felt unsafe in the RV. The cable TV was very good and local channels kept us informed. Our site was level and had a concrete patio and picnic table. We did not use any of the facilities. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Our second stay. Several long term campers on the perimeter of the park. Restrooms are clean and under some sort of renovation. Separate mens and ladies restrooms, separate showers rooms. Plenty of hot water. Did not use laundry facilities. Most of the improvements are cosmetic. Evidence of problems with the structure of some of the buildings. Roads in fair condition. Sites in sections of the park very unlevel. Few other campground choices in area and this seems to be the best based on other reviews. Good Sam rating seems quite inflated. Will probably not return.

They are working on improving this campground. The interior roads need repair & some of the sites are being converted to concrete or Asphalt. Our site was so roomy. We had lots of space on either side. FHU, pull through, cable, WiFi all were good. Very friendly & helpful staff. 20 minutes to Birmingham. Plenty of shopping nearby.

We stayed here for an overnight. It is a great park. We had a large pull through with plenty of room. Hookups were great. No problem leveling. I had read reviews about the roads being tight, but we had no problem in our 40' MH and toad attached. I guess if other campers parked their toads sticking out on roads, there could be a problem in places, but the roads themselves are plenty wide. Would definitely stay here again.

This is an old KOA, has small gravel roads and sites. Leveling was a bit of an issue, but we managed. There is a section in the trees that are permanent and the transient sites all seem to be in the sun. There was the obligatory train noise, but otherwise was quiet. We would stop here again traveling through the area. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was level and shaded but many others were not. About half the campground appears to be for permanent residents. The restrooms were clean. Showers also clean but quite small; getting dressed was a chore. I didn't use the WiFi, but the cable TV and cell service was adequate. Lots of room to walk your dog. Pool area looked inviting, but we did laundry instead. On-site convenience store. Overall OK, but a little pricey even with the Good Sam discount.

This campground has easy access to I-65. It has wide roads but narrow asphalt pads which need repair, but we leveled without any issue. The utilities are located on the front of the pad - we had to move very forward in the site for our electrical cord to reach. When opened, our front slide was very close to the utility pole, so be very careful when opening up. There were trees but we got satellite signal without issues. The wifi was inconsistent. The park is clean but it needs updating. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is very clean. Restrooms were spotless and each shower stall was private with its own door. In mid April, almost every site was taken and the long RV in front of us was turned away, due to no big sites left. We noticed many long term campers. Nice place, but you may need reservations.
