    The park needs basic attention: the roadway is potholed. My back in site was strewn with leaves and mud. The water and sewage hookups were right next to one another with water below ground and sewer just above. Yuck! That being said, it was convenient to the space center.

    The sites are generally large with a lot of space between them. All the sights are out of level. Not too bad but bring gear to level with and blocks for under stabilizers. There is no WiFi here but excellent cell service from multiple providers. Generally its quiet, well kept park with friendly staff.

This campground is literally 5 minutes from our house so it was the easiest option. It was very quiet at night, but also very dark. There are not a lot of lights throughout the campground so if you go walking, bring a flashlight. As far as hookups: water, sewer, and 30 amp electric. All worked great. I would stay again if need be.

We have a big rig (43ft+) and getting it level is an adventure but doable on some of them. The pull thru sites in the middle are your best bet.I work from the rig and cell service was top notch for Verizon and ATT. 30-50+ download and at least 20 upload. I did not notice any trash at all at the park.

Not a lot of privacy between lots as there aren't many trees. Full hookups (30amp), close to the museum, botanical gardens and to area restaurants and shopping. A few trails around if you are into hiking. One thing I found disconcerting were the number of plastic rockets and parachutes in the trees on the grounds launched by the space camp kids. It really is unsightly and a danger to wildlife. I expressed my concerns and the camp director came and spoke with me. While he was sympathetic I'd be surprised (pleasantly) if anything had changed should we return.

It was in the trees. In walking distance to US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. GREAT museums and there were a lot of things for kids to do. We did not have reservations and got lucky. Next time I'll make sure I have reservations! Check in and set up was easy - level sites. Restrooms were a bit older, but were clean. I had a migraine one day, so we only had one day to tour the museums. Not enough time for us, but we are both space freaks! It was a little hard to find - had to drive around a little, because the campground is hidden in a corner of the complex.

    Great location for Space Center. Park needs work. Many sites are very unlevel....come prepared. We experienced very low voltage with temps in 80's and park full. Surge suppressor shut us down as it should. Overall, very quiet location.

That said, it's summer and space camp is going on so I do hear lots of rockets as they are launched in the feild next to the campground But it isn't really bothersome and, other than cheering, the kids are quiet. Most of the sites needs blocks as they aren't level and the concrete is rough and torn up in places. There are only 27 sites and the staff told me in 2017 they had a 97% occupancy rate, so probably best to call well in advance. The biggest downside is that the laundry room (1 washer and 1 dryer, each $1) are in the office so you can only do laundry diring office hours (Mon - Sat 9 - 5). I wanted to stay a couple weeks but they were booked so I only got to stay a week, but if I'm in the area I would defintely stay again. Staff was friendly.

You can walk to the US Space and Rocket Center and there is no shortage of amazing breweries just a few miles away! The location just cannot be beat! The area has ample Uber and Lyft drivers to assist you with brewery hopping! Verizon service is blazing here and AT&T is good enough if you work remote or want to stream entertainment. With Verizon we are getting over 100 down! It's crazy good here! The campground itself has both back in and pull thru sites. We were in pull thru site 5. This spot was level for our 38ft motorhome, but I can see that many sites do have some leveling issues. The sites really could use some updating. The water hookup is down in a hole which was really weird to hook up. Overall, even though the campground could use a makeover it's really nice and the location is super convenient. The sites are well spaced, but open and not very private. We would absolutely stay here again to explore Huntsville.

Since Huntsville is a small city, there are also lots of grocery stores, hardware stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. within close proximity. The full hookups functioned perfectly for us and allowed us to do some maintenance on our tanks.We ended up enjoying our stay here, but mostly because of the location and the price. The campground itself is not that great. The sites are paved but very unlevel; virtually every camper we saw here was using blocks to get level on the paved sites. Some of the sites have huge cracks and potholes in the pavement, and several areas of the main campground loop are in extremely poor condition. The bathrooms and showers were functional (with nice hot water) but definitely showing their age as well. We didn't use the laundry (1 washer & 1 dryer located in the campground office) but the machines looked fairly new and were well priced at $1 each. The Rocket Center and therefore the campground are located along US 565, so there was a lot of road noise at all times, and a pretty loud train that runs on the other side of 565. There was also a constant parade of Space Campers coming by our site, though we didn't mind that.There is not a lot of space or any foliage between sites. For this reason I think the back-in sites on the outside of the loop are better than the very exposed pull-throughs in the middle of the loop. Reservations can only be made by calling on the phone, and the office staff was friendly.AT&T Speeds: Download 5.96 Mbps Upload 7.39 Mbps

It's hard for a geek not to get excited about that and definitely worth a stop by. There isn't much else around, other than a Marriott hotel. They have full hookups, although they are a bit on the older side. We had trouble hooking up in our first space due to a reverse polarization signal with our electrical. We also had a problem in another space with a leaky spigot. Fortunately, the staff was very friendly and moved us to another space that worked fine. There weren't any laundry facilities, but they did have showers and restrooms. There are also picnic tables at each site, although there seemed to be a strange tendency for campers to use tables at different sites than their own. Overall, this park felt similar to many State Parks we've stayed in; a little older and limited amenities, but perfectly acceptable. The rate is also a bargain.

The sites are closer together than I would like, there's not much privacy, and a few of the residents appeared to be long term. But for $18 a night with full hook-ups it was a great deal and definitely surpassed my expectations. It's right off the highway, so there was convenient access to everything in Huntsville, and you're planning a trip to the US Space and Rocket Center, there's no better place to stay. (Make sure to check out the NASA bus tour!)The park had free wifi (the website says $10, but they never charged me) that was fast enough to stream all the Netflix you need (or do work I guess). There were bathhouses and laundry, but I never used either. When I spoke to a woman who had been in the park for two months, she said the laundry was cheap ($1 a load) and in good condition.Despite the proximity to the highway, there was very little noise. The campground is located right next door to Space Camp, so during the day there was the sound of children shooting off rockets. They were never very loud or bothersome... just lots of countdowns and clapping. While there are no official trails for walking, my dog and I had a great time exploring the fields and woods around the RV park. There are several bike trails through the woods that a local team use to practice in the early evening (around 5-7). Any other time of the day they are great for walks and you can find all sorts of interesting things in the woods. Beyond that, there's a 15 mile greenway along the Tennessee River that's great for biking or running, the Madison County Nature Trail, and the state park for all sorts of outdoor adventures.

Convenient to shopping, movies, Huntsville and of course the US Space & Rocket Center Museum is right there. What's not to like! ;-) Oh, and it's not a bad ride to Red Bay, AL where I went one day for a tour of the Tiffin Motorhome factory. Worth the trip, it was pretty cool! I was staying there due to a work related trip to Huntsville. I always like to combine a work trip into a camping trip if possible and would rather stay in my T@B camper than a hotel. The location of this campground was practically across the street, well the interstate, from where I needed to be for work at the Westin in the Bridge Street Town Center shopping complex/mall area so that was fantastic. The access to the campground from the highway was great, the location was great the restrooms were typical, clean but nothing to write home about. The noise level was low but I was there throughout the week so would expect the weekends to get a little crazy with excited space ship inspired kids running around. That's just my speculation. For all I know it's cricket quiet on the weekends, too. Also this campground would be a fantastic overnight stop for anyone snowbirding.
