    Deerlick Creek Park is located a few miles northeast of Tuscaloosa on Holt Lake, just above the dam. It's a mostly-wooded park with 46 sites. Needless to say, this is a popular spot with boaters and fishermen.

    We arrived on a Friday afternoon in late March - no problem getting a site. The best water-front sites were taken, but we found a nice view from site 15, high on the bluff above Deerlick Creek.

    Date of visit: Mar 2012

    Most sites have decks on the hillside, such as the one on our site (see above). This is the view we had of the creek.

    Sites 16 and 17 are both pull-through sites overlooking the creek.

    Site 20 is typical of the "inland" sites.

    Site 10.

    Halfway down the hill is site 31, which has a bit of a view of the lake.

    Sites 34 and 35 are on the hairpin turn going down the hill. 35, on the left, has a great view of the lake.

    The prime sites closest to the lake are 36-39; shown here is 37.

    Saving the best for last: I considered site 39 the El Primo site. It offers a great view from its deck near the edge of the lake and is quite private.

    Settler's Camp is designated a primitive tent-only loop. The park's definition of primitive is pretty advanced, as each of the 6 sites has electric and water hookups. Here is site 42. Each site is within 50 feet of its parking space.

     deerlick creek08
    There's a typical COE small bathhouse with free hot showers and a small laundry room with 1 washer ($.75) and 1 dryer ($1.00).

     deerlick creek07
    The campground has a small playground for the kids and a lighted basketball court.

    There are four of these fishing docks positioned around the edge of the campground.
