Wilderness RV Park is approximately 30 miles east of Mobile. It is at Exit 53 off of I-10. It is close enough to the interstate to make it easy to find, yet far enough away so that you hear no road traffic of any kind. As you enter the wooded drive the office/club house building is on the left.
A very nice gentleman greeted us and handled our check-in with our Coast to Coast membership. We opted to pay the addition $2.20 per night for a 50 amp electric service.
As we followed the directions to site E-13 we drove along these narrow roads, but they are one way traffic only. We easily found our site and got parked and leveled quickly.
Today after lunch, I walked around to inspect this RV park. There are several RV's here right now but it has been very quiet. The entire place is filled with nice trees but there is still plenty of space for children to play on the grassy areas and be out of the road.
There is a small lake for fishing. No license is required and you can keep anything 12" or larger. Try your luck with Catfish, Bass and Bream.
There is a pool here for cooling off during hot weather. It is an older pool, but the water was clean and clear. The pool building was less than attractive with a rusting roof, but the pool was still nice.
Next, I wandered over to the laundry and restroom building. Again, a less than attractive place to look at.
To one side of the building is housed 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. Less than appealing and I, personally, would only use them if I were desparate. Likewise with the ladies restroom. Usable...but I will elect NOT to.
This is not what I would consider a fabulous, destination resort. It does not bill itself as such, though. I would classify this park as a family friendly place to play, but it is also quiet and lovely for us senior citizens, too. To me, it is a "campground" in every sense of the word. The scenery is nice and the management is friendly and helpful. With our criteria for "camping" it is highly suitable. We like: level campsites with full hook-ups, long enough spaces so our car isn't hanging out in the road, away from freeway noises, and good satellite and wireless reception. We do not care about: what the laundry is like, what the restrooms are like, if there are planned activities, or if the park has a pool or not. We normally don't use or need any of those things.
There is a daily rate of $24.00 plus tax for public use. The Coast to Coast rate we paid was $10.00, plus the $2.20 for 50 amp. This is also a Passport America park and one affiliated with RPI membership plan. It is a nice campground and we would choose to stay here again if ever in the area.
Until next time.....so long for now!
