First of all I feel I should justify this review since one has not been done in a while. I am camping here during the winter months and a lot could change in the summer. Specific to winter is the park hours- you cannot get access between 3 pm and 6pm. This park is in the heart of Alabama deer country and apparently a private road access is required to enter the park and the owner leases his property and people hunt it daily. I am at Cedar Ridge lot 1 (only one of two drive thru sites) and it is gorgeous!! Quiet. Peaceful. Beautiful overlooking lake. Very few campers here at this time of year. Park staff accommodating. Well run during these months. Nothing to do locally but there is history here including indian baths and original Alabama state house (now a museum). Univ of South Alabama archeological sites. Make sure you enter off hwy 43 from the northern route (near Leroy H.S.- county road 34). The other route is fine but winding. Rural, country road access in good shape. NO handout with maps for guests?? The lake is an old limestone quarry and stocked with fish. All access to restaurants and stores in Jackson 25 mins away. I am a rare one in that I got wifi thru direct line-of-site to office with interior antenna. No cable and I got 4 over the air television channels after adjusting antenna (I am on a ridge!). My friend who is a local said a lot of work has been done here since he was last here. Swimming- shallow area for kids with water slide. Deep off the bank swimming could be dangerous if swimming outside accepted areas. Crystal Clear water! I am not sure if this is a one nite stay park- 20 minutes off highway. Depends on your schedule, I guess. Since it is winter the bathrooms are locked so I could not inspect. Plan to visit museum before leaving. Sites appear to be able to handle 5th wheels with tow vehicles easily. The park manager is a 6th generation local and knows the park and area very well. Easy to talk to. We camped at Old St. Stephens Historical Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

China One restaurant in Jackson had a decent all you can eat and like all Chinese places I asked for the most popular dish-to go and got General Tso chicken- $10 and plenty of it. Plan on fishing in park- also boat launch to Tombigbee River. Walmart and Advanced Auto in Jackson 25 minutes away.

We were told when making reservations that there was a large number of "permanent" campers and only a few sites available for short term rental. The park rules of a two week maximum stay was obviously not enforced. This park was poorly designed and managed. The road was rough and speed limits were not enforced. All traffic to the small beach area and to the boat landing, drives past the majority of campsites. Vehicles and boats were parked haphazardly, extension cords ran from power poles to makeshift campsites. Golf cart traffic added to the congestion. The website boasted of boat rentals, however the boats were in disrepair and not available. We had visited this park about 10 years ago, and were very disappointed this trip. We camped at Old St. Stephens Historical Park in a Travel Trailer.
