Chilton County (Alabama) residents do not have to travel far to find a comfortable RV camping spot as improvements at Minooka Park are nearing completion.
According to a report, over the years, improvements to the 420-acre park have added amenities to the RV campground while increasing the number of available spots.
Gerald Arrington said the renovations are getting close to completion on the new campsites.
“All of the utilities are in place on the new campsites,” Arrington said. “We have 18 new campsites (with) water, power, and sewage.”
The roadwork and landscaping are in the process of being completed on the new section.
This brings the total number of campsites to 37 full-service sites. There are also additional five campsites with only power and water. Meanwhile, each site features a patio space and a concrete pad with a fire ring.
“All of our power is 50- and 30-amp service,” Arrington said. “Campers and motorhomes seem to be getting bigger and bigger, a lot of them require 50-amp service, so they all have 50 amp.”
Minooka provides a range of recreational activities, including fishing, ATV trails, a walking trail along a pond, bird watching, and beautiful views.
Work has also begun on a recreational space that will feature shuffleboard and a basketball court.
Minooka Park has become a popular destination for weekend getaways for travelers and locals alike.
Before the expansion, there would be some weekends where Arrington had to refuse admission because there were no more spots available.
Camping sites for RVs are $30 plus tax per night with a full hookup, and the weekly rate is $170 plus tax.
