Really enjoyed the quiet and view of the mounds
Nightly rate: $25
Days stayed: 2
Site number: 9
I arrived on a Thursday evening an hour before dusk. I didn't have reservations as you have to make those at the front gate or the museum in the back of the park. I wasn't expecting much but here in late October- boy is it quiet and calm. It's cold and rainy today but yesterday I was able to get my van backed into site #9 and have the view of the mounds behind me. The picnic table was in good order and I grilled for dinner (with my own grill). There are fire rings if needed. The spaces are plenty big and you could add a tent. You will hear several trains throughout the day but I think it's part of the nuance. I am on my way from Georgia to Austin so this was a good stop.Driving in is easy and it's all one way so any size RV should be okay but you'll have to back in. Some sites have more trees and less depth than others but the park guide did allow me to pick which site I wanted. There are about 30 sites and some have septic and 50AMP so look at the paper handout they give you to see which ones do if you need it. They also have a dump site on exit. If you choose the #17-27 sites you might have some road noise that comes from whatever is behind the park but over here on the 9 site I had no issue. Dog friendly but use a leash.The camp bathhouse is doable - nothing fancy and has your typical cobweb age look but I would use it versus my van shower. It's kept up and cleaned often.The museum is really nice and they have a gift shop as well. If you are into the Mississippian Culture; this is a great few days of walking, fire pit stories, and quiet. I have no idea what it would be like if it was full.If you want quiet communing with our Indigenous Americans; this is the place for you. I would stay here again just for the peace and quiet.I worked on Friday and left on Saturday. I used my Verizon MiFi and was getting about 30MBPS download. My AT&T seemed to get about the same coverage.
Cool camping on an Archaeological park!

This is a great little park outside of Tuscaloosa, AL. It’s an ancient Mississippian site that is an active archaeological site. You can walk all around the park and learn about this fascinating site. There is also a museum with a cafe and gift shop. The campsites were either full hookup or w/e only (same price). It’s all first come first serve & there was only one other camper the night we stayed. There are 6 pull-through sites and the rest are back in. I would say the pull-through could accommodate big rigs, but the other sites were on the small side. We have a 24ft rig & probably could have easily fit in just about all of the sites, but a few would have been on the tight side. Our site was perfectly level. The only cons to this park was the train that goes by is pretty close & loud. Also, there was somebody blaring booming bass music that was vibrating our rig. I kept thinking they were in the park, but there was nobody else there, so it must have been coming from the neighborhood just outside the park. We will definitely stay again.
