General Description: Located in the Black Belt region of Alabama along the Tombigbee River, Forkland Campground is a medium sized campground with 42 sites.  Nestled in the pine/hardwood forest along the northern shore of Demopolis Lake, the largest lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway.  Most of the RV sites are back-in sites, however there are a few pull-through sites.  All sites have water and electrical (50 amp) hookups.  Other amenities include boat ramp, playground areas, laundry, and bathroom facilities.

Impressions:

1) All of the sits are spacious with lots of trees.  The sites all had nice asphalt pads with gravel porches.  Each site has a picnic table, fire pit, and barbecue stand.  The only odd feature was the hookups for the pull-through sites were on the wrong side of the site, that is, on the same side as the porch looking out over the creek.  We were able to reach both the electrical and water hookups by running the hose and wire under the front of the RV.

2) The volunteers were very friendly and helpful in getting us into our site.  Since we had one of the few pull-through sites, this was not difficult.  They even invited us to a Valentine Day’s picnic being held for all the volunteers at the campground.

3) The bathroom/laundry facilities were clean and modern.

4) There is a nice easy Nature Trail leading from the boat ramp just outside the campgrounds.  There are a number of interpretive signs along the gravel trail describing local wildlife.
