Campground Review #76 Gunter Hill Campground outside Montgomery, Alabama

On this episode of Campground of the Week, our Kentucky correspondent Casita Dean reviews Gunter Hill Campground just 12 miles outside of historic Montgomery, Alabama. Casita Dean and his wife Laura first visited Gunter Hill Campground while attending a Green Eggs and Ham rally in their 2005 Casita 17′ Freedom Deluxe.

Gunter Hill Campground is a Corp of Engineers (COE) campground located on the Catoma Creek, part of the backwaters of the Alabama River. It consists of 142 sites, most of which are back in. However, there are about 20 pull thru sites if that is your thing.

Casita Dean talks about the two loops, Catoma and Antioch, and describe the differences between the two area. They offer very distinct camping experiences, so make sure you listen to hear which loop would suit your camping preferences best.

Reservations for Gunter Hill Campground can be made via Reserve American, and the prices are very budget friendly at $18/night for water & electric, and just $26/night for full hook up. That low price will give visitors access to boating, fishing, hunting, and other outdoor activities.

The campground also offers playgrounds, basketball courts, group shelters, and adequate comfort stations. Don’t bother to bring along your devices as WiFi is not one of the amenities offered at Gunter Hill.

The Region: Activites, Attractions, and Good Eats

Casita Dean is very familiar with the Montgomery area, and shares great recommendations  for enjoying both the historic sites and the great dining options.

Gunter Hill Campground can offer campers a quiet, outdoor retreat or an affordable basecamp to explore on of America’s great historic destinations.

    • While they may hold some spots for first-come-first-serve (as many campgrounds do), that is not accurate information. You can in fact reserve sites at this campground at ReserveAmerica.com, just as our correspondent indicated.
