7 RV Parks near Pickensville, Alabama
Feb 2018 - $11.00
Park was very clean and the typical great COE park. On the Tom Bigbee Waterway with occasional barge traffic and they are very quiet and not that often, but worth seeing. Part of the park was closed due to off season, but the larger portion was open. Nicely spaced sites with level concrete pads with water & elect at each site. Restrooms were super clean, not the newest, but far from shabby. Being off season the park was pretty much empty. Would deffinetly return. Our price reflects a premium site (on the water, not cross the road) difference was $1.00 with the Geezer pass. - garmp

Great campground. Staff was wonderful and helpful. Very quiet place to spend a few days. Needs a little updating, but still in great shape. - blonsk

Typical COE park - good layout, well spaced. There are plenty of sites at this campground (176). All the waterfront sites are walk-up only. The waterfront sites on Riverside Loop are right on the water, however, there is a drop-off depending on water level so it would be difficult to access a boat pulled up to the campsite. Most of the waterfront sites on Waterfront Drive are like that also. The pull through sites 114-116 are back away from the water.
TV reception is excellent - all the major networks available. Verizon coverage is 2 out of 5 bars. The terrain is flat - good for bicycles.
Water pressure is high - bring a regulator.
Because of it's remote location, a large number of sites, and a large percentage of those sites walk-up only, this is a good campground to find a spot on a holiday weekend if you don't have reservations. - Bama Camper

This is a nice park on the Tenn-Tom Waterway. Staff was nice at check in and helpful. This park has tree sites and open sun sites with trees in rear of site. Sat. systems will work on most sites but not all. We could pick up a number of channels over the air on TV. You have sites 1 through 10 with 30/50 amps, water, table, fire ring, and the hook pole. Sites 1 through 10 are in open sun and Sat systems will work here. All others sites are 30 amps. Sites are cement, level and have a trash can. Nice dump station on the way out of park. Park is very dark at night with very little lights. No noise in this park. Verizon cell and MiFi air card worked fair here. The price was due to Golden Age card. Gates are locked at 10:00 pm and you have an exit gate to get out if you need to start before gates are open but cannot get in due to tire killers on this exit. If you like to fish or rest this is a great place to do it. Nice to see the tugs boats moving up and down the water way with large barges. Only bad part here is the two miles of rough road from Hwy 17 to gate house. State needs fix this problem, drive slow and you will be OK. - John Blue

I do a lot of fishing, and I'll tell you that this is one of my favorite places to camp. The Park manger's are the nicest people. They keep the place in good condition. It's not a big campground, but that's what I like about it, there's a lot of peace AND quiet. The kids can run AND play without you being worried they'll get run over or hurt. And at night it's quiet, not a lot of hoopla being carried on. I camp here three or four times a year. Really, I could fill a whole page about how great this place is, if you want to go and relax, and get away from it all. TRY IT!!! You'll go back. - Crappie Lips

Large State Park with lots of space. About 40% of the 58 sites are right on the water. The land slopes gently into the water for most sites making it ideal to pull up a fishing boat or kayak right to your campsite. The sites are all full hook-up, and at a daily rate of $24 (no discount) for a premium site, it's a pretty good value. Good 30/50 amp power and excellent water pressure. Some of the sewer stubs are several inches out of the ground. Sites are all either concrete or asphalt with a rock apron or traffic area. They are spaced out well. This is an older park and some of the sites are short for longer campers which results in some folks parking across the site or on the side of the road, most site lengths are OK, though. There is one bath house for the campground which would be insufficient if the sites were not full hook up. The CG is relatively flat and "bicycle friendly". The bath house is old and a little out dated, but clean, stocked well and maintained. There are two washing machines and two dryers in the bath house entrance - $1/cycle, takes quarters. In the campground, Verizon service is marginal depending on location. Over the air reception is adequate. Tree coverage is fairly thick for satellite reception, but most campers with a portable dish were able to find a "hole" in the canopy. Ants and mosquitoes have been a problem when we have camped here before, but were not a problem this trip in the spring (late March). The State Park is large with multiple play fields, a good Frisbee golf course, lots of Geocaches, one good long hiking trail around the lake 3.5 miles (moderate). There is no swimming in the lake at the campsite, and I did not see a swimming beach at the Park. There is a real grocery store and fuel within 4 miles from the CG. - Bama Camper

This was a great state park. We had a spot right on Lake Lowndes. Great ranger that checked us in for the weekend. Very peaceful. A couple of problems; there were a lot of geese around the park and our spot had a lot of droppings to contend with, and there is a bad ant infestation. Had ants get in the RV during the first night and we spent the rest of the time fighting ants. The ants did not bite but caused a lot of stress. Appeared to be no problems on the other loop with the ant problem. - blonsk

A very nice place to spend a few days. The bathrooms/shower are a bit tired, but work well. Unfortunately, we parked over the top of an ant hill and had an invasion. A little spray of ant killer did the trick. Very peaceful and beautiful. - mcsnygg

Small park with only 8 sites. Easy access into park and inside park as well. All sites are gravel back-ins with full hookups. Owner was out of town so her mother came and checked us in, fast and friendly. Park is clean, lots of trees for shade. Very quiet. We were in Site 6, we had to take the hose connect from Site 8 (per owners instructions) as the last people who stayed here took it with them. The site is plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, storing the tow-dolly and parking the car. This site is nice and wide, others are more narrow, no picnic table or fire ring. There is no WiFi and our Verizon signal was okay. There are no bathrooms or laundry on site. We stayed March 14-17, 2018 and paid $25.00 a night with no discounts. Just minutes from downtown Columbus. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Small RV park in the edge of Columbus off Hwy 82. Very convenient, easy to find, a little tight on the entrance but negotiable for big rigs. Gravel drive and pads, level and in good shape. Mostly back-ins with about 4 pull-thrus. Full hookups, everything works but water spigot are low in the ground and tight to hook up. A lot of highway noise, you don't hear it with the ac running. Appeared to be mainly full-timers and some overnighters. No reservations and never saw the owner, just a registration slip and honor box. There is a laundry room and what I think was a storm shelter. The next exit down has restaurants, groceries and gas. Decent overnight stop but not a destination park. - Andrew65

This park is private and secure. A little on the primitive side but nice. It's a quiet area just minutes from town. Has views of the river which is quite peaceful. Woke up to sounds of nature, birds singing and even saw deer and squirrels. It was very relaxing. Mostly long term campers, working in the area, some with families, sitting around a campfire at night. Will definitely visit again! - Jared Woodall

Arrived at 5 pm-- owners nowhere to be found. Left at 10 am the next morning, still not having ever seen them. Appear to be mostly full-timers in this cramped park w/no shower facilities. I backed in against an all night gas station which was pretty loud through the night. Overall unpleasant experience. - 23States

Very friendly and helpful. Convenient to Columbus. Sites close together. Well kept and quiet. Most of the RVs seemed to be permanent dwellers. The shady, pull-through sites at the front are the best. Convenience drove the decision to stay here. Will stay here again to visit relatives in the area. Not a vacation type park. - Macklen
