Pro - security gate - pool - easy check in Con - bathrooms need cleaning and updating - bathroom/laundry building is falling apart - only 1 washer available - the rule is no RV older than 10 yrs but that wasn’t the case for a few RVs that were parked there during our stay. - Some RV spaces are untidy. Looked like junk (freezers, etc) sitting outside some RVs front space. - drainage around the park needs updating. We got a lot of rain and it caused flooding and inability for water in our RV sink to go down.

Campground Response

Hi Summer and thank you for the review! We do have a total of 4 washers two on each side (north and south) however on the south side there is one that is not working at the moment so we do apologize for that. There are some RVs that are older then 10 years that have been accepted or grandfathered in. We do have quite a bit of fishermen and a lot do have freezers for extra storage space. We did unfortunately get a lot of rain in the park, but I am not sure why that effected the water in your RV sink to not go down. We wish you safe travels!

Very nice pool! Location is great; close to Mobile and Dauphin Island. Only thing I can recommend is to request a spot that’s on a concrete slab. The spots that are on the gravel road aren’t so great and our spot wasn’t cleaned up before our arrival. Other than that, everything was great. Our kids enjoyed the pool.

Amber Thigpen

Our ti.e a Bay Palms was nothing short of amazing. The park has everything you need. Clean bathhouses that are being remodeled. A pool that is very relaxing. Hookup sites that are laid out so you have plenty of room. We will return for a longer stay.

Joseph Gualtieri

Very nice campground!!! Staff was amazing! Lots of amenities for such a small place. Heard from another camper they’re still expanding! Will definitely be back.

Gary Lewis

Great RV Resort close to Dauphin Island. Very friendly staff and residents. Great paved roads and parking sites. No problems with water, sewer and electrical. Would gladly stay again when in the area.

Ronald Smith

Nice level concrete sites. Really liked the fenced in dog park. Laundry room could use better dryers. Will stay there again.

Campground Response

Thank you for the great review! We are steadily aiming to improve our campground and dryers is on the list! 🙂🙂

David Wiman

Very nice, laid back park. Wide sites, quiet setting. Good location, close to Dauphin Island. Close, excellent restaurant at Pelican Reef.

Campground Response

Thanks for the great review! Come back anytime!

Julie Wallin

It’s under new management Well it sounds like they have a lot of changes coming. It’s small but very nice and Amanda and her husband Jason who run and manage the place could not have been nicer and more accommodating. They gave us a ride to Dauphin Island with our bikes because we had no other transportation!! That kind of stuff alone would be worth a return!

Campground Response

Thank you so much!! Please come back when you are in the area, we would love to have you!

Bruce Nolte

Very friendly staff and fellow campers. Very nice facilities, paved sites. Enjoyed our visit and plan to return.

Campground Response

Thanks for the review! We appreciate the feedback!

The resort was very clean however it was very tight. We have a 43’ fifth wheel and there was very little maneuvering room. The propane is set up in a location that was impossible for us to get to for a refill. The pool is very nice especially if one has small children.

Campground Response

Thanks for the review! We appreciate the feedback!

Lacey Love

Bay Palms was a very clean RV resort. The sites are large. The pool was gorgeous. We loved it was gated with a key pass. We will be back soon!

Campground Response

So glad you loved it! Please come back and stay with us when you can.

Gary Stout

Grounds are well maintained. Staff and fellow campers were super friendly and helpful. Water pressure at site was good. We had a gravel lot and it was level and very wide. Restrooms were not used often, but they were clean. WiFi was a joke. You could not open mail with attachments and the allowed websites were limited. Lots of cable channels, but reception was snowy the entire visit. We did not come there for the tv or internet, so we will come again.

Campground Response

Hello and thanks for the review! Not sure when you stayed with us but we did recently upgrade our cable system and so you might have been with us during our *testing* (it was a nightmare, but fixed now!) And with the internet, we are MAXED out on speeds and have been fighting with our provider (the ONLY one in the area) for years. They limit what can be opened because we have so little internet available. It is mainly for checking emails, paying bills, etc. (with opening attachments it depends on the size and sender). AGAIN, thank you for camping with us and giving us such valued feedback. We appreciate it!

Dan Tillman

For first timers we thought the resort was great. It was clean and well maintained and the location to everything we wanted to do was perfect! Amanda in the office was so nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Campground Response

Thank you so much! Hope to have you back when you are in the area!

Nichole Beausoleil

We stayed 3 days. The rv's were parked very closely together. The bathrooms were supposed to be locked and a code was to be used to enter but this was not the case. The bathrooms were not clean and without any water pressure. This was not an enjoyable stay and should not be called a resort. We will not return.

Campground Response

Nichole, We hate to hear you were unsatisfied with your stay. Our restrooms are locked with the code during the summer when we have more children and overall guests. However, they stay very clean and tidy. I personally make sure of this. Wish you would've expressed your concerns with the office staff instead of taking it here first. If you feel the need to mention any thing else we can improve on please feel free to let us know. Thanks

Ralph Bickford

We stayed over Christmas 2018. The park is clean and the sites are good sized. We had a gravel pull through that was flat and wide. The one thing for us that could be improved is a better walking place for pets. The staff is very helpful and friendly. This was our second stay and will most likely stay again.

Campground Response

Thank you for the review! We appreciate the feedback and are in the works of hopefully building a dog park for our furry friends! Please come back and stay with us when you are back in the area.

Carol Daugherty

We enjoyed our stay and will probably come again at some point when the weather is warm. Our only complaint is the water pressure. The shower was horrible.

Campground Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, however hate to hear about the water pressure. Most residents are receiving upwards of 50lbs of water pressure (most camper only require 35-45) I will be sure to check your site, but you may also want to check your camper, just in case! Hope to have you guys back again!

Chasity Barnes

The camping experience was awesome! The staff was friendly and the campground was very well maintained.

Campground Response

Glad you guys got to enjoy staying with us! Hope you and your family enjoyed the USS Alabama! Come stay with us again in the future!
