How to Read Good Sam Directory Ratings

The three-number rating that accompanies each campground listing in the directory gives readers an at-a-glance assessment of a campground's amenities, cleanliness and environment.

How to read the Good Sam Rating 10/10 /10.
All three ratings categories are measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.Less than 1 percent of parks or campgrounds receive the coveted 10 / 10 / 10 rating, which indicates superior facilities that are well maintained, clean, well-appointed restrooms and a highly appealing appearance.Campgrounds are inspected annually by dedicated RVers like you.

Completeness of facilities

10 / 10 / 10
The first campground rating evaluates completeness and quality of facilities.In this category we rate interior roads, sites, registration area, hookups, recreation, swimming, security, laundry, store and building maintenance.

Cleanliness and physical characteristics of restrooms and showers

Booked for 2 nights while in Birmingham on business. When I checked in I paid for two nights as is customary. After settling in to our site, we were advised that one of the power stands on our row had "burn up" and that power would be off for up to 5 hours starting at 9:00 am. I questioned why we were on that row but was told we would be ok. The next day we were told to unplug at 9 as that was when the electrician was supposed to come but they weren't sure.
I decided I did not want to stay the second day as my wife is sitting there with no power. I went to the office to cancel the second night and was told they could not refund my money. All they could do was a rain check. I told them I would not be back and I was on company business and insisted on a refund. I asked to speak to the owner only to be told she was on vacation and not taking calls. I told the manager I wanted the credit issued to my card but she finally gave me cash back.
As I was leaving the office I heard her tell someone to put me on some type of list. I thought about this and went back to inquire and was told I was banned from ever staying there again. First, I would camp at every Walmart in america before I would even consider coming back to this less than stellar park. Secondly, I told her to put my name down twice just to make sure.
I now have to question Good Sam's rating because there is nothing that warrants this place to be over a 5.
Good luck if you stay there.

Good location near to I65. Access to many services. Campground a little frayed around the edges. Roadways starting to crumble. Site had concrete pad for table but area around concrete had eroded so pad was sticking up considerably. Real tripping hazard. Wifi ok but they no longer offer cable. Because of location they were mostly full.

Only stayed one night but was impressed with restroom/shower facility. Very clean and warm (considering how cold the weather was). Staff was very friendly and helpful and location offered easy in and out. Will stay again.

We stayed one night on our way through the area. Much of the park had big trees, but our spot on the end of the row at the front had no shade. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The showerhouse was clean and the showers were in little individual rooms. They had a large store, the usual souvenirs, sundries, etc, but an additional large area of RV accessories and maintenance items. The access from I-65 was easy, but there was a lot of highway noise, sirens, and trains rumbling and whistling all through the night. There was a pool, although we did not have time to use it. It was a good overnight stop.

Sites are tight. Big rigs with tows are sticking out in road. Look like an old KOA. Was very full due to proximity to I-65. Roads need paving and sites need gravel. Utilities, including cable, work well. Helpful staff.
Not a destination park but fine for over night if you can fit in.

Park is conveniently located and staff was friendly when we checked in. Area we were parked in appears to be the older part of the park and it needs a lot of work. The pads are broken, sites are very uneven, the roads are in need of repair and trees block TV reception. WIFI is basically non existent. There are a number of unkempt long term units that have junk stored outside all around them. Dog park area is well fenced but small, no grass and dog poop was not picked up. They charged extra for 50 AMP service. All in all the park is much need of tender loving care.

Easy to find RV park off I-65. Asphalt roads and coach pads with some erosion alongside the pull through. Just wide enough for a class A. Nice attractive trees in most of the park for those that are longer stays. No complaints unless you hate trains. Whistles all night long. I would stay here again.

Roads within park are rutted and rough, electrical service on our site was showing a voltage drop on power monitor, WiFi service is spotty at best. Main facilities I.e. pool, restrooms and playground are maintained, however, RV sites and hook ups are not. Staff is friendly and helpful, Park just needs a serious amount of money to remedy deferred maintenance issues.

I am a solo traveler, and always attempt to stay at this campsite when traveling toward Florida. They are welcoming with a nicely stocked camp store.

We have stayed here twice previously. Stayed on the other side, behind office and pool. Way nicer.
This time lots so unlevel
I almost fell several times stepping off RV step. Area surrounding was a mown patch of weeds and stickers. We were in shade but many spots are not and that would be unpleasant.
At time of reservation, we asked for late checkout as my husband had a 10am doctor appointment downtown in heavily congested area. At that time were told they didn't usually allow late checkouts but she would get back to me. Never heard so morning of Check out I walked to office, a rude woman shook her head no from the moment I mentioned late checkout,
as I mentioned this had been requested ample time back, I dropped the cancer card, I mentioned the 18 empty places I had counted as I walked over (actually counted 35 places as we pulled out), assured her we would be back before check-in time. All this time she rhythmically shakes her head. I finish. She says, " No late checkouts. Rules are rules." I would stay in the dark in a Wal-Mart parking lot before I returned there.

Stayed here overnight on a trip from Florida to Idaho. Staff is friendly. There is some time of pipeline right behind the park that emits a noise all night and trains pass by the park. Very near I-65 which makes this the perfect park to overnight. We did not use the restrooms, so I can't comment on those.

Campsites are very poorly leveled. Sewer hookups are uphill, beyond what can reasonably be dealt with. Pull throughs are not configured for travel trailers. You can expect to have to drop your trailer on the front of pad and park tow vehicle behind them. Staff was totally unresponsive in helping me move to another site. Park does have nice amenities, but you'll probably be too upset with your site to enjoy them.

Very easy in and out from I-65. Sites were pull-thru and level with 50 amp service and full hookups. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed overnight and would stay here again. Wi-Fi and Cable were so-so.

We have stayed here multiple times over the years as an overnight layover between Nashville and the coast and have always had excellent experiences. The people have always been friendly and the facilities more than adequate. The pool and bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The place is not new and could use a little repaving but is more than sufficient for our purposes. we will use them again next year.
