Great little campground! Wonderful and helpful Campground Hosts! Sites have all hookups in lighted Pedestals at rear of large(40 ft)and level concrete pads. Sewer hookups are in the middle. Large 2 Vehicle asphalt parking pads in front of each RV pad with a picnic table and grill. Bathhouse at end of campground is climate controlled but small with 3 Showers (1 handicap accessible), 1 each: Toilet, Urinal and sink on the Men's side and Women's has 2 toilets and 3 Showers (1 handicap accessible. Floor is currently plain concrete. The WiFi Router is on the Bathhouse, so the signal is little weaker at the other end of the campground, but acceptable. North sites are shaded and back up to woods and south are open not shaded. You have plenty of room between sites and you can circle bathouse when departing. 2 washers and dryers service. Gym, AAFES shoppette and Desoto Pastime Center(fast food) are within walking distance. Nice small pond with playground is nearby. Railroad is visible, nearby and trains are frequent. 1 site is keep for short term while 7 are permanent. Plans are in the works for 3 more pads. Close to Talladega AL, Cheaha State Park with highest point in AL (45 minutes away), and Chief Ladiga Rails to Trails Path ending in Anniston AL (continues to GA Border and on to Smyrna GA as the Silver Comet Trail) - a great biking trail. To clarify the driving instructions for first time Visitors: Once you make the second right turn, after you pass the first large parking lot on your left, as you go downhill and past a narrow grass berm between that parking lot and what appears to be another parking lot, but that second "parking lot" is actually an unnamed street that runs IN Front of Bldg 221 that has perpendicular parking in front of it - which is where you need to turn LEFT (behind the parked cars if a workday). If you miss that turn like I did, the next street for the White Oaks meeting retreat on the left leads to a parking lot that when empty is big enough to turn around in. There is no mail service at all or Commissary. It's a great RV park to stay in, you will get use to the trains. Shopping mall in Oxford is not far away along with the exchange at mile marker 188 (I20). Coldwater creek is about 6 miles from Depot(1st turn left after Hwy 78 eastbound and Hwy 202 intersection) if your children like real cold water. It is very shallow(6 inches mostly).
