We arrived on a Thursday afternoon in mid-March - no problem getting a site, despite the fact that some sites were closed due to flooding. We were assigned site 40, a very nice site on the Alabama River. At that time the water was just a couple of feet below us; but dropped considerably during our stay.

Date of visit: Mar 2010
