Because of spring vacation camping activity, we had made a reservation a week ago. A couple of weeks ago we had a neighbor who highly recommended site 52, so that's we ended up. He was right - an excellent site at the end of the campground right on the bank of the waterway, with all its barge traffic.

Date of visit: Mar 2010

One of the two bathhouses in the campground. It provides hot showers and has a small laundry facility ($1.00 per load).

A number of barges came by our site during our stay, such as this coal-laden string.

And there were some empty barges heading upriver.

Across from the day-use area is a small Coast Guard station, not exactly what one would expect to find in the middle of Alabama. Its mission to maintain the navigation aids along the waterway.
