A Great Find
This park was one of my favorites. We stay 11 days and enjoyed every minute. Did a lot of bike riding especially on the road leading into camp. Wish we had a boat, that would be fun. The most peaceful camp, even on the weekend. Very clean restrooms, as well as the whole park. Camp host all were great, and very humorous, felt like friends. We stayed in # 8.. level concrete pad, lots of room to spread out on crushed gravel.

Perfect Quiet, Secluded Campground
This is a well-maintained Army Corps of Engineers, no-frills campground which was excellent for a quiet, family camp in our PUP.
We stayed in the "overflow" camping area, so we didn't have direct view/access to the lake, but could easily access the boat launch area for bank fishing.
#41 was a secluded, very level, pull-through crushed stone site w/ a concrete picnic table, and metal fire ring. BYO firewood, or can forage the wooded areas. Bathhouse was clean and easily accessible.
The campground is no-frills and doesn't offer any amenities or services so don't expect a campground store or anything similar. Demopolis is about 20-ish minutes away and has the typical services you may need for food/supplies, etc.
Treat yourself/family to a daylight drive by turning right onto 43 coming out of the campground. A few minutes down the road on the right is Jim Bird's haybale and junk sculptures. Definitely a fun, quirky roadside find!

Every site was paved and has a gorgeous lake view. Campground and facilities impeccably clean. Only $26/night for water and electric but 50% off with National Park Access Pass. Minimum of 2 night stay was required but well worth staying.

Go !! The best campground Ive seen in Alabama. Camphosts/campworkers have done a great job. Whenever we're in the Forkland area we will be back.

What A Gem!
We used this park as a stop in our way to TN. It’s a little ways off I59 ( about 20 miles), but what a find. The park is quiet with large level sites. All sites were concrete with ample room for your vehicle. The bathrooms were updated and clean. The sites were wooded with fire pits and picnic tables. There was even a large pile of wood next to our fire ring. We walked around and didn’t see one bad site! We will definitely be back.

Beautiful, But No Camp Store
This park is beautiful and the facilities are very clean, but you have to bring your own firewood and ice - there's nowhere in the neighboring towns to purchase firewood. We were told you can bring wood from anywhere in the state or collect downed wood within the park, but it could of course be wet or green and not burn well.
Though it appears the sites are on the water, the bank is very steep and wooded - you can see the water, but only a few sites have a stairway access to the shore. The northern part of the loop is lower elevation, so easier access to the water at a few sites.
The park is very quiet, I would definitely recommend, but come prepared with all the firewood you'll need. There's a gas station up the road to the north for ice, but no firewood.

We are in spot 14 right now and it is at least 50' on either side to the nearest campsites. My in-laws are in spot 15. Everything is shady and quiet, pad is level, we are very happy here. We will definitely be back.

Quiet And Clean
This campground is a good overnight spot , quiet clean with water and electric . Clean bathrooms and the scenery in the quintessential swamp of the south - with cypress trees and egrets flying . Saw ppl coming in with boats to fish . There's a playground for kids too!

Friendly helpful campground hosts. Plenty of shade from tall oaks. A fisherman's paradise. Playground for little ones. We enjoyed watching the egrets fishing in the bayou, and loved the peace and quiet in November.
