We would love to give this campground a 10 but our RV and RV truck were infested with ants by the time we left after 14 days. We noticed ants were dropping out of the trees; nothing was free of ants; the picnic table at our site was unusable, I just threw away the table cloth for it was loaded with ants. We did not realize to what extent, with our truck until we reached our next campground. We are guessing the heat from the day, truck and road caused them them surface. We have sprayed and added ant baits in the bed and in the truck. They seem to finally be under control in the RV. Otherwise we loved our site, had a wonderful view of the lake; also enjoyed the beach area. I will call the park and explain the problem we incurred. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I camped here over Memorial Day weekend in site 74. First, the park staff were very helpful and friendly. I had a small medical problem and they were most helpful. I liked this campground very much and will probably return. The only problem I had was not the campground's fault and that was I had no cell service (AT&T) at the campground. My rate reflects using the Golden Age Passport. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting for this C.O.E. park is beautiful. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Sites are easy to back into, or pull through. One warning! Come prepared with plenty of ant killer. Within six hours of our set up, our trailer was infested. The trailers on all of the sites near us had similar problems. What should have been a relaxing four days on the river, turned into a battle over the infestation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful campground. Friendly and helpful host. I'm sure it is full in the summer! I might have given it a 10 if it wasn't so far out of Eufala. Showers are older but clean. Even had a washer and dryer. For an overnight White Oak Creek might be more advantageous. Beautiful beach. Great place to canoe or kayak. I can see spending more time here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very clean and neat. It has a wonderful beach. This campsites are very spacious. They have a grill, prep table, fire ring, picnic table and lantern holders. The people working there are very friendly and helpful. They have a place to put your boat in the water. We plan on gong back very soon! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is great, everything clean and neat. Lake is wonderful to fish or just to sit beside. Rate shown is Passport America. Only drawback is if you want shopping or sightseeing, it means traveling as these are few in this area. That is what we like about it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was closed and updated in 2010. Showers and restrooms have new fixtures, and are spotless; also air conditioned. Corps of Engineers need to do a better job of training people who check campers in and out. Obvious that couple working working at this date were not very computer literate. Courteous however. A few sites now have "full hookup" but not down low near the water. Highly recommend this park though. Rate based on Golden Passport rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has good paved roads and plenty of room to maneuver even big rigs. We stayed in the Shady loop which has sewer connections for all the sites. All sites have 50 amp service. No AT&T cell service in the park but a convenience store near the entry gate has a pay phone. Camp sites have asphalt driveways to level concrete pads. I saw no sites that did not have plenty of room for slides. Sites are very roomy and are well shaded. Each has a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern hanger. Sites in the Bayshore loop back right up to the water so you can tie up a boat right behind your site. Only the Bayshore and Shady loops were open while we were here. I like to go biking and hiking but the only bike trail in the park is the main park road and there are no hiking trails. The bath house had two shower stalls but was set up so only one person at a time could shower in privacy. The campsites and the park as a whole were very well maintained and the staff members were friendly. May need to come back when it warms up in order to take advantage of the swimming areas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The roads in the park and ramps to sites are asphalt and free of pot holes. The site itself was concrete and level. All sites have new 30/50 amp power, water. 18 sites have sewer hook ups. Park is large and has very large trees to park under. Like all COE parks this one is super clean. Bathrooms (two) have showers and laundry room, all clean. Park is on a large Lake (Walter F. George). Sat. TV will only work on some sites due to the big shade trees. There are grills and fire rings at all sites. Best place I have been in a long time for fishing and R&R. Staff was very nice at check in. Two large dump stations on the way out. Rate was on the America The Beautiful senior pass card. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is a very nice COE park that has had most of its sites upgraded to 50 amp service (1 - 32). We frequent many COE parks in the state and this is our favorite so far. Most sites are spacious and level with concrete pads but some are gravel. AT&T cell service was excellent despite the seclusion of the park. There are sites with complete privacy (33 - 42 gravel) and others are not as private but are more private than other campgrounds. Sites 18, 20 and 21 are excellent with large yards and are water front. Some sites have water front views with steps leading down to the water. There were many people fishing in the river that would park their boats at the steps leading to their sites. They have two new playgrounds that kids were enjoying. Lots of level paved roads for bike riding. Bathrooms and showers were clean and kept up daily. There are no sewer hookups here but other than that I couldn't ask for a campground better than this one. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
All roads in park and ramps to sites are asphalt and free of pot holes. Sites are cement and level. All 77 sites now have new 30/50 amp power, water pressure was 40 psi, and 18 sites have sewer drops. Park is large and has very large trees to park under. Like all COE parks this one is super clean. Bathrooms (two) have showers and laundry room, all clean. Park is on a large Lake (Walter F. George). You can fish and swimming here if you like. TV channels over the air were (2). Sat. TV will only work on some sites if you have a dish on the ground. Verizon cell and air card work well here. Staff was very nice at check in. This is a noise free park, you only hear birds in park. Two large dump stations on the way out. Rate was on the Golden Age Card. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Big lots with almost half of them pull through. They had lantern poles, fire rings, grills, picnic tables and a movable heavy duty table for anything you needed. Very friendly staff. The only negative, if you want to call it that, is that a lot of the lots are a real pain if you want to set up a satellite dish, otherwise a very nice park. We camped there over the 4th of July and they were full but still well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is top rated by me. Roads are asphalt and free of problems. Sites are level, cement, long, and wide. You have a table, fire ring on ground, and BBQ cooking equipment. Lots of room from site to site. Water, power, and (sewer on 19 sites only) was good. Verizon cellphone to the top, DTV will pick up some channels over the air. Due to heavy trees some sites may not work well for satellite dishes. The shade here is about the best we have ever found. Park sits on Lake Walter F. George and is very large with a power dam. Lots of sites on lake and 18 sites are pull-through. Bathhouses were clean and have A/C plus a laundry room. Great place to fish if you wish to. Eufaula is a little north of park for places to eat and to shop for anything you may need. I understand park will upgrade to 50 amps this year. Staff was great at check in. Gates are locked at 10:00 pm. Playground equipment for the kids and the only sounds you hear were wild bird songs. Large sand beach for swimming. Rates were on Golden Age Card. Free Wi-Fi at Eufaula library. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful campground. We stayed 2 nights and wish we could of stayed longer. . .the sunsets were magnificant!! It was a quiet campground and the hosts were friendly. The restroom/shower facilities were very clean. Down the road towards Demopolis, Mr. Bird has really strange/cool "yard-art" in his field . . .we stopped and photographed it. We would camp here again!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gorgeous little hidden gem of a park. Positively enormous sites. Back right up to the water. Lots of wildlife. Spotted deer herd, listened to coyotes, owls, armadillos, herons, ducks. Sat under the Milky Way. Took a long walk in the rustling fall leaves. Wonderful place. Will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding! The Campsites are very private shaded and large. There is a small playground for young children, fishing, and bicycle riding without the worry of heavy traffic. There is also a designated swimming area which was not busy at all. The park left cut firewood next to the fire ring for the first night of campfires after that they encourage you to gather more in the woods. The staff was one of the best to deal with and very helpful. The Park Ranger made several trips through the area to check on everyone which was a nice feeling. This would have received a perfect 10 from us except of the fact there were a few dead fish on the beach that could have been cleaned up and the occasional loud music in a vehicle that drove by other than that we highly recommend this site to anyone young and old. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I usually rate COE parks a 9 or a 10 but can't with this one. It's still a nice park but it's just not one of the better ones. The sites were rather narrow and some are very close together. Not what you usually get with COE. Overall not bad and we would probably stay here again. I just felt more crammed in that I'm used to at these type of parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful COE park with all asphalt roads, cement level pads to park on. Park is on Walter F. George lake with most sites on or very close to lake. You have 20 sites with sewer on "Shady Loop". No road noise in this park. Very dark at night. Good power and water. Lots of space from site to site. Camp fires are OK here. Park is very heavy with shade trees. Rest rooms, showers, and laundry were spotless. Lot of people fish in this lake. Two dumps stations near front of park. Trash dumpers "3" also near front of park, long walk from most sites. Golden age cards price was $11 per night for FHU site. Eufaula is 22 miles to center of town, check out old antebellum homes, lots to look at around town. Park gates are locked at 10:00pm. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here for the last 10 years. We started in a pop up and now on our second travel trailer. This is a beautiful campground, well maintained and quiet. We call this our second home. Campground has been TOTALLY renovated in the past 2 years and there is no BAD site. We have stayed in every loop and like them all. And yes there is not much to do in Demopolis but who cares? Camping should be relaxing and our teenager loves all the paved roads for bike riding. Definitely will be back again and again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Not much to do besides just relax, enjoy the scenery, and fish. The playground near the back of the park is very nice. The nicest shaded concrete sites are 13, 14, 15, 18, and 19. Site 20 is also nice, but has no shade. Site 21 is very large with a private front yard, but only has limited shade. Make sure to take your ant killer as they are all over the place and they will find a way onto your camper, even if by a twig touching from a tree! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All sites are set up and around heavy trees. All sites have a lot of space, table, fire pit, and great view. Sites are cement and roads are blacktop. Great view of lake from lot of sites. On Golden age card price is half. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The access road to this park was recently paved. When we camped here with friends, we
were the only two campers in the park (it was winter). I'm not sure why, as the park is very nicely maintained. We had a site right on the water. The concrete site was very level and spacious. There are some double sites. However, the sites are well spaced. We had previously driven through this campground in the summer and the park was almost full. I think during fishing season this park gets very busy. Most of the sites are on the water. We will certainly visit this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found this park to be in the right place for an overnight. Just off 82 at 431. Turn just south of the Subway on 431and follow the road back through a log yard. Quiet, inexpensive & shady, with cable. They have some waterfront on a not so nice waterway. Not sure if it connects to larger reservoir nearby. Nice, clean pool. Many permanent campers, with lots of stuff. No trains! We would camp here again for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spacious sites, not very private, beautiful lake front site. Fished from the bank and caught mostly bass. Comfort station was very clean, showers roomy. Paved roads into loop need some work; potholes and cracked. Prices were bit high for state park with water and electric only. Check in staff at marina was helpful and friendly, but returned next day for propane tank filling and encountered a surly staff member who was not friendly, didn't want to help with bait, and overcharged for campsite. Darn Alabama ants invaded our camper by third day of stay! Stayed in Clark Loop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice State Park that sets next to Lake Walter F. George. You have three campgrounds loops here to pick from. The Deer Court is for the larger RV's. Our site had 50 amps, water, sewer, long pull through, level, blacktop site, table, BBQ cooker, lots of space on each side plus front and rear, noise free, dark at night, and a dead Wi-Fi system. The hookups worked with no problems. Lots of sites are under trees and others are not. If you have a Sat. dish, pick the right site before you pay. We could pick up two channels over the air on TV. The Clark Loop and Barbour Loop has 30 amps and water only with back in blacktop sites. All hookups are on the wrong side plus sites are very short. The AL Loop is now only used for RV storage. Tons of room in this park to walk or ride a bike. The check in system changed four years ago as others have noted. Now you drive to the marina to pick up a gate code, next go find a site you like, and go back and pay for it and then return to your site. This is around a three mile trip one way. The park has a locked gate so you need a code to get in. Two key pads to use, one low and one higher up for tall RV's. The top key pad would not work. Office made no notes to repair it and told me it was working. I check mileage back to Walmart and it was 12 miles south on Hwy 431. You have lots of places to eat in city plus other super markets as well to pick from. We do not use the bathhouses but checked them I found everything to be very clean, setup for ADA use, and cool with an AC system. On washer and dryers we have our own but I do check the machines. I found two new washers at $1 each, other washers and dryers with rust and wear at .75 cents each. Nice wash room with places to work and places to set down. Laundromat is next to the locked gate, a good ways to any camp sites. Verizon cell phone worked well with full bars, MiFi 4G had no service, 3G worked well with three bars. Rate was based on a Sat, Sun, and Monday stay. Sat. and Sun, cost a little more. Lots of permanent residents in the Deer Loop and have been here a long time. Discount if you are over 62 years old. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Phenomenal facilities (a 100+ room lodge for conventions has an excellent restaurant open to the public), although the camping area is a couple of miles from them. We were in the "C" loop, which is on the lake, and there were only two other rigs there the night we stayed. We had a gorgeous view with ducks and egrets right in front of us, but it lost points because someone stole our 30-amp power cord while we were at lunch despite the fact that the campground was gated -- and the staff was less than helpful in trying to solve the mystery even though the only vehicles the other campers noticed were park vehicles. Nevertheless, we'd stay there again -- but we won't leave anything on the site if we go somewhere during the day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I think you'd have to look hard to find a campground that has all the amenities this park has at this rate. We had plenty of room for our RV. Clean laundry room was close by. Lake Eufaula was gorgeous, lots of bass fishermen, and a super marina with a cafe. The city of Eufaula is about six miles away with the usual fast foods etc. We stayed an extra night and definitely will go back to stay a few more days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. We stayed in a back-in site in the Barbour Loop because when we arrived on Friday afternoon that loop was empty. Sites are well spaced and mostly shaded with easy access to the trails. Roads are paved and great for cycling. Through the weekend some of the other sites in the loop were taken, it still remained quiet. We visited the other loops and found them more crowded. No problems with electricity or water, but the connections are on the passenger side. Verizon aircard worked well. Campground had recently been mowed. We would have rated the campground higher except for the registration and check-in. During that process we talked to two different employees - one of which was very friendly and helpful. When we first went to the marina to check in we were told we had to go pick a campsite, leave something to mark that it was taken then drive back to register. In other Alabama State Parks we registered then just called back to advise which site we were in. Even so, we would not hesitate to stay here again and will recommend it to others. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park! Loved the town of Eufaula and the historic homes and charming town. We camped in the Barbour Campground as we wanted more quiet than the full hook up sites near the lake. We had 30amp service, water, and there are dump stations. We did get some TV reception. Our MiFi Verizon card worked great. Great for relaxing, bird watching, and exploring. The Wildlife Refuge was an easy drive from our site. The laundry did have some new washers and dryers - very inexpensive to do laundry. We understand from talking with folks, the State Park has recently completed many renovations. We enjoyed a large easy back in site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I realize this campground is in the State Park system, but it could certainly use some upgrades. We were lucky to get adjoining sites with our friends and therefore had a nice lot between us in Deer Court, which consisted mostly of seasonals. Wi-Fi was terrible and we had to drive to the lodge to use our computer. Roads could use repair and laundry room was very outdated with rusty machines. The ride into town was doable every day if you need anything. Grass needed to be mowed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park in State system. Easy access. Ate Thanksgiving dinner in lodge. Food was too good and of course, we ate too much. Sites are big. On Lake Eufaula with great fishing. Approx. 5 miles to city of Eufaula. 2nd stay there and will definitely go back. Had to change sites to get satellite signal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just over nighted here, but this park is really a destination resort. The "Loop" we were in had a sandy beach. The marina rents pontoon boats and jon boats. Has a resort hotel, golf course, restaurant etc. City of Eufaula is worth a day's exploration and tours of the antebellum mansions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty good park, nice and quiet with the lodge, marina and good restaurant in the park. We didn't use the Laundry or Showers but they were here, about 1/8 mile from the sites. Long 80' pull-through sites with very wide spacing, great for families or persons fishing and boating as it has lake access, although not lake front or lake views. Access to the sites are older pavement, during our stay the sites had been updated with new sewer/electricity and were muddy where the pavement had been trenched. Lots of tall pine trees that provide shade and block your satellite dish. We gave it a 7 because of the mud on some sites and older paved access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The section we stayed in, just had 50 amp service and Wi-Fi service added and there was some mud and standing water on a couple of sites. Aside from that, the sites were large level and somewhat shaded (tall pines). The only negative was that there were several (about 50% of sites) sites taken by long term campers, thus a lot of clutter around some sites but I must say they were neat and not trashy like some private campgrounds. I would definitely stay here again and bring my fishing gear. Also, the Alabama gives seniors a discount which is appreciated. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with good walking trails and paved roads. You pick your site so you can choose your best location for you. Nice trees so satellite is not much of option. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love the landscape around the campground, always keeps grass cut, etc. Nice, roomy lots. Different sections and you can pick your lot, so we always drive around to see which section has more rowdy people (usually the one with waterfront lots) and we pick the quieter one. Love the trails and great place to ride bikes. We like to play tennis here, too, although court needs a face lift. Also they have a rec-room but I can't remember if there is a TV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a gorgeous campground! You have to register at the marina, which is a couple miles from the CG, and I didn't feel the staff were particularly helpful or friendly - over the phone or in person. But the CG itself made up for all that! We stayed in Deer Court, which had sewer hook-ups (not all the loops do) and very easy pull-through sites. Only a few yards to the lake, beautiful trees, great spot for a little biking and walking. Only minutes to the lovely older part of Eufaula - although the weekday afternoon traffic through that part is HORRENDOUS!!! Also the little River City BBQ place is wonderful (between town and the CG)!! Rate reflects senior discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a state park, this is one of the best we've ever stayed in even though like most state parks it doesn't have 50 amp or cable. Sites are very long and has plenty of room between sites. Each site is shaded. Would definitely stay here again but not when temperatures are above 85. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a typical State park with some facilities. The staff was very friendly and the RV site was large with easy access. I asked for, and was graciously given a site with minimal trees so that my satellite TV could receive a signal. The park was quiet and is located right on a large beautiful lake. This is one of those parks that would require more than a one night's stay to appreciate. I would stay there again without hesitation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, pleasant place to spend some time. Concrete pads were nice and level everywhere we looked. Nice area to ride a bicycle, little traffic. Lots of tall pine trees to shade you. Sites directly on the lakefront are about $28 a night for water and electricity, sites in the same loop not on the lakefront are $14 for water and electricity. Tennis courts are rough, green-painted asphalt which is *not* even. Picnic tables at each site, as well as a fire ring or a small BBQ grill. My only real complaint was that there were not enough garbage receptacles, nor was there any pickup service. For the entire loop of about 60 sites, there was a single dumpster, and it was at the very beginning of the road, quitea hike. All said, it was a nice place, for a nice quiet stay. We'd go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are a retired couple who enjoy space, peace, and quiet. This park provided lots of this. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days spent there on our trip from Arizona to South Carolina. We did miss having internet and I missed a pool because I like to swim as often as possible. The sights are big, treed, and quite level. There are many hiking trails, and there are 2 tennis courts. Town is close by and the "downtown" area is quite quaint and pretty. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here as an overnight stop on a trip. After hours check in is provided along with pricing as we departed before the office opened. We used a long pull-through site that was paved and level. Nice state park and close to town for eating etc. We will stay here again and would be a nice weekend or week long place to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found this park to be quiet and clean in appearance. A great place for kids to ride bikes. The park was not full over the weekend and nearly empty when we left Monday morning. We will return for another visit. We camped in the Deer Court section with full hook-ups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have been visiting this park since it opened, not much has changed. It is in need of an update, however we always have a blast and the staff is wonderful. They know us by name now. We store our camper there, we visit often as I love to bass fish. I recommend this park, just wish it had a pool. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was a big disappointment. It was old and in disrepair. The sewer sites are not on Lake Eufala (Walter F. George reservoir), only near a creek leading to the lake. The beach (on the creek) seems to be a mix of construction sand and goose droppings. Most of the paved roads in the camping area are crumbling apart. There was a lot of litter blowing around and our sewer connection was clogged and backed up when we tried to use it. We stayed 2 nights only because we wanted a chance to visit Providence Canyon, nearby in Georgia (well worth a visit). Georgia's Florence Marina State Park is not far from Lakepoint and a much nicer campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice, but dated state park. Alabama should visit nearby FL state parks and learn from them. Sites were paved, level and in good shape. Many pull throughs. We stayed in a circle campsite that had a lot of space. Campground itself is kind of boring, but there are things to do in the park (fish, golf, hike, bike, etc). Some updating would go a long way to making this a 8 or 9. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We rode through this campground in May to see if we wanted to stay there. The answer was definitely NO. What used to be really nice was not anymore. I understand that this was used by Katrina refugees and that they really messed it up. I am sure it will be spruced up, but call and check it out before you reserve a spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I had to comment on the previous review. I wrote the one in January 2004, and of course, that was prior to Katrina. When we were there this year, the full hook up sites were indeed occupied by Katrina refugees. It was sad that the area was a little run down, mostly broken awnings and so we wonder if anyone instructed these people on what to do with an awning. We were located in the electric and water section, with view of the lake. It is a really pretty place and the fellow campers were pleasant. We had a great time. I feel sorry for the parks and the evacuees from the hurricanes in the south. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park, even in January, is beautiful. The site we had was a pull-through, on one of the ends of the row so we felt like we had a quarter acre. The facilities were lovely and the lake really nice. I would imagine in the summer the place would be packed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here overnight on a return trip from the beach. The loop we stayed in has many campsites in a big field. However, there are trees and the sites are well spaced. Our pull through seemed like it was 100 feet long. The sites are big. I don't recall any sites directly on the water (at least on our loop). However, the sites are relatively close to the swimming area. There is another loop, without full hook-ups, that has sites on the water. The area in general is quite wooded and very peaceful. The roads are great for bike riding. We used the recreation building for our group as it rained some. The kids also played in that building. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A typical COE campground, which means just about perfect if they only had sewer. Large level cement sites with good spacing. Site backs up on the river with birds and waterfowl entertainment. Verizon service is spotty and over the air TV doesn't get all network stations. Still wonderful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean campground, clean restrooms and shower. The weeds along the road were not cut and the weeds in the the tent area were not cleaned out. The campground opened last week for the season and with federal cutbacks this may have to be acceptable, however a little effort can go a long way. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice park, well kept sites, and access roads were paved. Most sites were water front and all sites were within a few feet of the water. Bathrooms and showers were ok, not great. They were not air conditioned so there was a lot bugs in the showers. Most sites had some shade, easy to get in and out, some sites were a little small for big rigs. Staff very helpful and friendly. We stayed here for a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access off US 431 & 95. Paved interior roads and sites. Partial shade available at most sites. 5 bars on Verizon. Sat TV may not be possible from many sites unless you have a dish on a tripod to peek through the trees. The gate people were extremely friendly and helpful. Campground was quiet and clean despite being nearly full. Common dump site for each of the 4 loops. The campground is very well laid out for easy access to sites. If you like water for swimming, boats, or watching: this campground is great. Nearby Eufaula is interesting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an example of why the Corps of Engineers is the absolute best. This place has it all even washer/dryers. Concrete parking pads, super water pressure, 50 amp power, several dump stations laid out intelligently, level sites, beautiful huge lake, etc., etc. Impressive. About the only negative would be the slow check in process and the reservation system which only allows reserving 4 or more days in advance-goofy. Rate reflects Golden Age pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic park with wonderful views and right on the water. Staff very friendly. clean, paved, trees, extra nice facilities. One of the best COE parks we have ever visited. Close to shopping, Wal-Mart etc. and be sure to visit Abbeville, AL and "Hugging Molly's Restaurant". We will definitely visit here again! Price reflects Senior Discount Pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were level. The RV pads were paved and level. The patio areas were packed gravel with a fire pit, charcoal grill, picnic table and lantern pole. The lake was clear and smooth. Boats can be anchored adjacent to your campsites. This is a well maintained park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Corps needs to give more computer training to attendants. One couple could not manage to work a good credit card. New fish cleaning station this year. Shaded sites 115 through 120 give best antenna reception for Columbus, Ga. TV stations. Stayed on Senior Citizen pass, otherwise $20.00 nightly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an updated report from June 2009. This park now has 30/50 power on all 130 sites. Odd item was with new power we show under load with two roof A/C units in service and microwave in use leg one was at 109 volts and leg two was at 111 volts. Under no load we see leg one at 113 and leg two at 114 volts. New Wal-Mart super store is now open around five miles from here. TV over the air would only pick up two channels. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Rate was on the Golden Age Card. A great place to visit. All workers are now gone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice COE park on Lake Walter F. George. All roads are asphalt and free of potholes. Sites are cement pads, level, long, and wide. Site had a wood table, fire ring, and BBQ cooking equipment. Most sites have lots of room around, grass, nice trees to sit under. Verizon cell phone was to the top. DTV will pick up a number of channels. Satellite dish on the ground works best here due to heavy trees. Bathhouses were like new, clean, and have A/C system. Water and 30 amps were all good. Staff was nice at check in. Good place to fish. Lots of people using boats to play on lake. Gates are locked at 10:00 pm. Playground equipment for kids. Eufaukla library for free Wi-Fi. Eufaukla is around seven miles north for everything you may need plus places to eat. A new Wal-Mart Super Center will be open soon on hwy to park. Only seven pull-through sites that are good for short units only. Noise free at night. Rates were on Golden Age Card. I understand this park will upgrade to 50 amps this year. You have four dump stations, one at west side, two in middle, and one in rear of park. Best setup we have every found in any park to dump. A great place to visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I concur with previous reviewers so I am just adding to the information. There are four separate looped areas with each having it a nice bath house and laundry. All are now 30A only, but one is supposedly being upgraded with 50A. Couldn't verify due to its being closed for the season. Some lakeside sites (back-ins) do have a entry slope issue. The pads are level, but the driveway slope will cause hitch dragging for travel trailers and motor homes. There are a handful of pull through sites. The library in Eufaula has a Wi-Fi hotspot. Rate reflects Access Pass discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This beautiful COE park has 130 W/E 30 amp sites but only 40 sites are reservable - the rest are first come first served. Sites are level concrete pads, most with long driveways. Good space between sites and most are angled to provide the best view. Most sites are lake front and heavily shaded but many are satellite friendly. Washer and dryer at shower house. Lots of bass boat traffic on the lake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean, neat, and beautiful camping. Very busy. Recomend calling Reserve America for reservations. Some sites are a little hard to get into because of a drop off in front of the site. Most cell phones work here, but not at other COE parks on this lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
GREAT facility. There are many sites right on the lake with beautiful views. Nice park for walking and/or bike riding. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. You will want to stay more than several nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful Corp of Engineers Park. The only trick was to find a site where we could use our satellite. We are 45' and 30 amp was fine in the spring but would not work in the hot summer months. The dump station was large enough to accommodate us as well. We loved this park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful, large sites. Lake sites have fish cleaning station, fire pit, patio and area for tow vehicle. Some sites were not level enough for big rigs. Nice wide roads and paved sites. We would stay here again over other parks in the area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
