2 RV Parks near Whatley, Alabama
May 2004 - $38.00
This place is the pits. By far the grossest, most unpleasant place I have ever been to. The staff were mutes. They did not make eye contact or acknowledge your presence unless you were holding a credit card. The grounds are a dump. The pool is filthy and unsafe. The playground consists of pieces from the dump and a few old tires. Everyone drinks and smokes ALL DAY. We were the only sober people walking around at noon. There is nothing to do here but drink. We thought of drinking the weekend away so we would be able to deal with this place but wanted to have our wits with us in case someone picked a fight with us or tried to steal our car. Don't go here, your sanity and life depends on it. - pookyellis

Really a nice park, the sites are long and private. I didn't stay on water front, we were in site 42, we had tv. The only thing were the bugs, they were terrible, I guess nats, so we stayed inside for two weeks, we tried bug spray, but we both have coped and it didn't help with our breathing, I had to take the dog out and got some kind of bites all over me, hopefully it's a time of yr that they come, otherwise a very nice park. - Patricia3441

Cannot recall a COE campground that was bad, but this one is one of the really better ones. A bit off the beaten path for an overnight stop but a nice destination park. Sites are widely spaced and just about all are very long and concrete paved. Only a few pull throughs but back-ins are easy. We much preferred the river sites for the view and satellite access and we got about a dozen off air stations. Hosts we met were very friendly. The only negative we experienced is the bugs...mosquitos and gnats were pretty pesky. Agree with most comments from the previous review except we did not notice the messy sites they mentioned. Would definitely come here again for a longer stay to relax in the quiet. - Grumpier99

On the banks of the Alabama River. Park is quiet with great host campers, large sites and a lot of quiet. Clean power properly wired and grounded. Many of the hiking trails were under water due to the flooding so hiking was limited this time. Sites are well cared for with the exception of a couple in the back where the park ranger has not enforced the "don't leave your junk behind" rules for special friends that stay longer than the normal. If not for the junk, gas grill, lights, smoker and other items this camper left behind the park would have had a top rating. Mentioned the trash to the host and were told they have mentioned it to park staff with no results. To bad as this is a nice park. Not as remote as many have suggested. About a half hour to town for groceries and services. Town is only a half hour away so it pays to do your shopping before heading to camp. Interior roads are good but access roads are narrow so pay attention on your way in. Try to get a site on the river and not the creek if you have solar power. Fewer trees along the river. AT&T only had 2 bars so internet was weak. TV over the air had 30 channels most of which were strong signals. Sits right in the middle of hunting and fishing with a great view of the locks and dam. Night time was excellent! - Micheal Whelan
