When entering Service Campground you must call 251-753-6935 if the guard shack is not manned. A campground host arrived quickly and guided me to my site after signing me in and paying $12 day (America the Beautiful Senior Pass rate). My site, #7, was level, offered electric and water hook ups and faced the Tombigbee River. Saw several barges pass, going north and south. Had a heated bathhouse with toilets and separate laundry ($1.50 wash, $1 dry). Can’t say the toilets flush well since one seem to be plugged. Garbage and dump station are located on road between entrance and campground. There are three well marked hiking trails with maps located in laundry room. Also, books, DVDs and magazines for loan located in laundry room. Excellent Verizon signal reception. Loved my stay here, enjoyed seeing the barges and hiking the trails with Spock.

Awesome Waterway Views
Loved watching the barges and boats go by. Quiet and shaded. Bring your own firewood.

Love This Campground
We came across this campground when we made a hurricane run from Michael. We really liked this park so much that we plan on returning for a longer stay sometime in the future. The sites are large and level with plenty of room to spread out. Some of the sites are right on the tombigbee river with a great view of the river. The showers need some updating but appeared to be clean. We were only there for 2 nights so I did not use them. There are plenty of short hiking trail and a boat launch. We will return to this park soon. I took away one star for the bathrooms.

Best Of The Best
Finally, a Corp park that had an engineer that knew how to use a level and designed an excellent park. Pull thru sites facing the river so you can watch the barges, wide paved sites, nice picnic areas, easily accessed boat ramp, AND, for all you Corp park campers, SHOWERS THAT ACTUALLY DRAIN where they’re supposed to. You know what I’m talking about. Especially if you’ve ever camped at Ft. Pickens. Showers and toilets are in the same area so you don’t have to expose yourself while running around a building from the shower to a toilet. All in all, KUDOS to the engineers of this park. They should be in charge of designing all ACOE parks.

Super nice and spacious. Only problem is no sewer so if you stay several days bring a tank
