4 Star Rating  May 30th, 2017   Memorial Day Weekend
Great little campground located in Wetumpka Alabama, just north of Montgomery. Just minutes away from the new Wind Creek Casino. 39 sites with paved drives, 30/50 electric and water all nestled under plenty of shade and lots of spanish moss. Plenty for the kids to do and even admission to see all the park historical exhibits and the Indian Mound are included. Nights are $18 for RV and $16 for tents. The park was almost full when we where there, but was very well kept and clean. Sites all have a picnic table, grill and hire ring. There are also a couple of groups sites available too. Plenty of space for the kids and adults to ride bikes, go for hikes on the Bartram trail and see history that goes back to 100 AD. Part of the park is on the bluff where the junction of the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers. History is preserved in the French and American forts on site.

We spent Thanksgiving Thursday through Sunday at Isaac Creek Campground in Franklin Alabama. It`s located along the Alabama River and where Isaac Creek flows into the Alabama. Reservations were easy and we could pick our spot through Reserve America. I did a little research and found a campground map online. I also researched some blogs to see what I could find out about the site. I found that the sites on Isaac Creek are more private and have wooded areas between each site. There are also docks for fishing along the creek too. About 15 docks for 20 sites. We arrived around 3:30pm after a 2.5 hour drive down from Montgomery Alabama. Bring your food since this place is really remote, but Finchburg Grocery is about 8 miles away that has pretty much everything (they have bait and camper stuff too) and they open at 5am.

There are 60 sites total each with electric (50 amp) and water hookups (water is soft, so if you don`t care for the taste/mouth feel bring your own water). Sites don`t have sewer, but they do have a dual dump station close by at the park entrance. Sites are level concrete pads, have picnic tables, lantern holders, grill and fire ring. Sites 15-35 are premium waterfront sites, 1-6, 42-60 are standard non-waterfront sites. There are 2 bath houses with restrooms, showers and laundry. Showers have plenty of hot water, clean floors and are heated. Nights dropped into the 30`s during our visit and the restrooms were a constant 60 degrees (there was a thermometer on the wall). Sites also have large 32 gallon trashcans and someone came around on Saturday morning and emptied the trash and put a new trash bag in the can.

Park is very VERY quiet and away from any highway noise. Boats do go up and down the creek, but it`s a no wake zone so it`s pretty quiet. Park was full by Friday but it was still very quiet at night. Only street lights are at the bath houses, so bring lights for making that walk to the potty. Boy it was REAL dark!

We have Verizon cellphone service and we could only get 1X. Occasional 3G service, but for the most part only 1X. Our television did not pick up any channels at all so if you want to watch TV better bring your satellite service with you.

There are three play grounds, basketball court with two hoops, pavilion, large group cook out area, boat launch, fishing dock on the river and trails. Quiet time is from 10pm to 6am. Pets must be on a leash. Due to the nature of the area there are no swimming areas.

We had a great time! Our site was number 22 on the creek and had it`s own fishing dock.

Chewacla State Park was great. Small park with about 36 full service RV sites, 16 primitive sites and 6 cabins. Since the park was built during the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps there are lots of stone structures, cabins, bridges, waterfall and concrete picnic tables through out the park. Each RV site has water, 30 & 50 amp electric, sewer and satellite tv. I was able to pick up 5 television channels over the air but the signal was too weak and wasn`t watchable. Bring you coax cable and you can hook right into cable tv at your site. Bathhouse was clean and air conditioned. Sites were clean and had picnic tables and a fire pit/grill. Cell service was good and I had plenty of signal. The park was full Friday - Sunday and on Monday we had it pretty much to ourselves. Even though it was full it was very quiet and peaceful. Dogs are allowed - if kept on a leash. Ours did fine and had plenty of space to go for walks. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails, even one that is rated for experienced riders only with lots of wood structures to ride over and through.
Considering the park is in Auburn the crowds at the park may be different once college football starts.
