We were a little sceptical at first, booking a state park but having read the reviews gave it a try.& we were pleasantly surprised.Check in was smooth with helpful & friendly staff and we picked a site that backed up to the water which had a superb view. The sites are mostly level by the water but a few had... More

This is a beautiful state park conveniently located right off of I-10, but the road noise from I-10 is not at all bothersome. The water front sites have beautiful sunset views! The sites are well spaced so you don't feel crowded by a neighbor. Having sewer hookups was a plus! We read reviews earlier about ants so we sprayed ant... More

We chose this park primarily due to it's close proximity to Mobile and it's good rating. We found it to be a great place to stay while in the area. The sites are nice and large, giving you plenty of space between sites. Ours was in the trees, giving nice shade. The park is on the water and you can... More

While venturing out within Alabama, the thought of a picnic, was just what we needed. Here, is just a perfect spot, among many parks readily available. The views were pleasant as were other patrons, In the event you are in the area, do yourself a favor, pack a little something and venture on over.

As with our last visit to Meaher State Park we found the campgrounds to be very well kept. With the exception of pine cones, all over the place, we found the grounds to be very clean and well maintained. We also found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms were kept very clean, and with the exception... More

Meaher State Park Campground is a great campground. We stayed here a week exploring the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. I would not rate it as a good state park - essentially there's a boat launch ramp, a fishing pier and a short boardwalk to view Mobile Bay. Great sunsets though!

Thanks for your review. Meaher State Park is limited in what it offers but it is a great place to camp and explore the area. More

Neat little State Park RV campground with a public boat ramp for inshore fishing in upper east Mobile bay. Clean bathhouse facilities and full service RV spots.

Small park that made our trip very nice, not many campers so had our privacy, camped right on the lake. The only negative was sugar ants, they seem to be everywhere and even all over out RV, They have a nice dock that is 300 feet with a 200 foot tee and if you take your little dog with you,... More

Thank you for your review. We are very glad you have a nice trip. The sugar ants have been pretty active this year. We are looking at other alternatives for dealing with them. Hope you come to visit again soon. More

We camped at Meaher State Park June 30-July 3rd. It is truly urban camping. The interstate and restaurants are a quick drive up the road. We took our boat and I was assured by the park we would have ample parking for it and that was true. The camp sites are large and we had no problem getting our 18... More

Thank you so much for your review. It has been a very hot summer so I can imagine how uncomfortable you must have been in a tent. I love to tent camp but I think this heat would be a bit too much for me also. The park does spray for insects but as you said being so close to... More
