We stayed here on our way to Florida from Texas. We wanted to stay off freeways. This place is remote. We had a pleasant overnight stay, we were the only ones here. We got here, picked out a spot and hooked up. We were here an hour or so before the manager came to collect. He was very pleasant. There are springs here. There is a settlement of homes nearby so we could hear activity but we could not see anything due to the trees. They locked the gate at dark but the manager gave us the combination in case of emergency. I did not see any shower building. I saw what appeared to be a pit toilet only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We did not stay here. The lots were narrow, not made for slide outs and difficult to back into. The park was quiet, no campers just a picnic group at the pavilion. Once the site of a lavish health spa in the early 1800's, only a few wells with hand-pump remain. The spring water contains sulfur, iron, magnesium, and calcium. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I arrived here at the end of March, 2006 on a Friday and was the only person in the whole park! The ranger arrived just at dark and collected the money. The bathrooms were a bit far from the camping area itself (maybe 300 feet away) with no showers or other amenities not noted above. The park itself is nice and perfect for a night away from any hiway noise or city lights. There are natural springs here that were used many, many years ago as healing springs. The GPS coordinates for the campground are: N31d44.267 W88d11.778 We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Only two words come to mind when describing this campground located in Coffeeville, AL; First Class! This place is awesome! Clean, rustic, and without a doubt off the beaten path. For $10.00 a night this is paradise! I had a waterfront site where I could see barges moving up and down the river all day and night long. There are also nicely secluded wooded sites. Host was very helpful and nice and pretty much left everyone alone. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Pack everything you need in because the little “stores” around the area don’t carry much other than the basics. There is a small grocery store in Coffeeville proper. While you're there don't miss eating at the Four Gals restaurant located in Coffeeville as well. Not much to look at but the food was wonderful. Fuel was also noticeably higher by 15 cents per gallon. Might be a good idea to fuel up before heading in to the back country. Enjoy! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an EXCELLENT place to camp. The park was immaculate. The sites are very spacious. The bathhouses were heated and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They made rounds through the campground many times during the day and even at night so we felt very safe. There are nature trails that are just awesome; a nice well-kept playground; the roads are paved and level, perfect for riding bikes. We loved watching the tugboats pushing barges as well as big luxury yachts cruising the river. It was quiet and peaceful and just beautiful and relaxing. This is the cleanest, best kept park I think we've ever stayed in. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. We will definitely camp here again and again. We camped on site 11, pull through water front site. It had a picnic table and a fire-pit w/attached grill. It was paved and level. Good water pressure. No sewer hook up. I am looking forward to our next adventure to camp at this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park staff and fellow campers could not have been more friendly or helpful. There was no brochure of park rules or any explanations given out on arrival. I did ask for and received a rough map of the park. There was no pool or rec room facility. None were expected. The sites are paved, either asphalt or concrete, and level. Good electrical (up to 50 amps) and water pressure. We had site 11, a long pull through that paralleled the river. It is a very relaxing, shaded area. Bring a portable dish if you want to receive satellite TV. Our rate reflects the Federal Park Service Senior Pass discount rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a COE park. It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere, so be sure to shop before you arrive. The people working there were very friendly and helpful. If you drive over a 40 ft. coach, you should ask them for site 1 or 2, as I'm not sure how you'd manage some of the other sites because of the trees. They are long, but they're very narrow. There are trees along the back in sites which would make it very difficult to open slideouts. We actually enjoyed this park, but except for sites at the very front of the park, I don't think we could have parked our 45 ft coach. They really seemed surprised to see a coach as as large as ours coming into the park. Because of the site in which we parked, we could get satellite, but cell phone service was VERY spotty. Most sites were too tree covered to get satellite. It is definitely not a luxury park, but a camping spot which was clean, quiet, pleasant and on the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great COE (now Public Corps) park! One of the best we've stayed at! Just had roads and sites repaved. Whole park is spotless. Rate reflects US Sr discount. Was very sorry to leave after 1 night. This is on our must return list. Tugs pushing coal barges down the river and great fishing nearby! Beautiful setting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This well designed park had nicely paved roads with several pull-through sites right on the banks of Coffeeville Lake. Most sites were heavily shaded by a canopy of large trees. Park attendant on duty. Amenities include a dump station, hot showers, laundry facilities, a pay phone, and a boat ramp near the campgrounds. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
