Tranquility RV & Campgrounds is located in a quiet heavily wooded setting with plenty of separation between the sites. Camping is equally popular by both RV’s, tents and pop-ups for peace and relaxation. While the campground has a remote feel, it is actually within 10 minutes of a variety of restaurants and activities.

We booked a couple of tent spots with family for the last weekend of the season. The staff were very helpful with... booking and once there they checked on us. The tent section has nice, level, pads with picnic tables, fire pit, water and power. That’s pretty cool in the tent designated area! (We like our power and water and usually have to end up on an RV spot most places 😄). There is nice spacing between spots. Now, there were a whole bunch of tent spaces. If they all sold out during busy season it would be a crowd. The bathhouses were a short walk. Although they show a little wear, they are kept clean and my family appreciated that it was individual bathrooms. The location is convenient to everything we wanted to do in the area. I asked the kids, they said 10 out of 10. We’d like to come back on a longer weekend!read more

Great place. Not very big. And not very crowded. Quiet and tranquil.

The grounds are lovely. The whole property really does live up to it’s name: it’s incredibly tranquil. You have partial... shade all day at most, if not all, sites. There’s a beautiful lakeside picnic table on a ground covered in every shade of green imaginable. Everyone was friendly yet respectful. This place just has a super chill energy about it and it seems to rub off on everyone. Dewey is the groundskeeper and he was awesome. Super nice. Just attentive enough. The bathhouse leaves a tiny bit to be desired, but it was impeccably clean every time I walked in and everything functioned well. It just smells like water damage. But, to me, that’s a very minor issue. It’s convenient to Mentone. There’s a Dollar General 11 minutes away in case you forgot something necessary. Highly recommend.read more

My wife and I love this place! It’s not too big and the sites are clean and nice (and not stacked close together). We... prefer to camp here over nearby DeSoto State Park, and you can enjoy the park trails. The bathhouse is clean and the staff communicates by text so it’s easy. It’s minutes from either the park or Mentone. There is a small lake (with a simple hike/bike trail around it) and the owner can give you directions for a 3/4 mile hike to DeSoto Falls (the opposite side from the park entrance).read more

We spent 2 nights at this campground in our Aliner camper last week and we will definitely be back! The campground was... perfect for a relaxing getaway experience in the mountains! It’s very clean and well cared for by the delightfully personable owners. You can tell they love the grounds and want their guests to have a pleasurable mountain camping experience. No concrete sidewalks, no manicured lawns with “keep off the grass” signs…this is not your “camper city” campground but rather mountain camping… with benefits! Flush toilets, showers, each site has a table and fire pit, some tent sites even have power! Perfect! Perhaps we’ll try to meet our Florida kids and grands and rent the cabin that sleeps 4 for them on our next trip! Thanks for an enjoyable “Sweet Home(away from home) Alabama” base camp for adventuring!read more

Such a cute, clean and relaxing campground! We just spent the last 6 days there and it was so nice! Staff is helpful,... campsites are so spacious, bathhouse is kept clean and is one of the best we have seen, and the trail around the pond is great for a family stroll in the evenings!! We will definitely be back!!read more

Beautiful campground and lovely owners! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here. They saved our vacation. We had a bad... experience at a nearby campground in Fort Payne. We decided to move here instead of going home early. Thank goodness we did. We had a great time relaxing at the campground and engaging in nearby activities. I cannot speak highly enough about the owners. They were so friendly and accommodating! I didn’t want to leave and I would definitely go back.read more

We had the best time at Tranquility and can’t wait to return! The owners are amazing. They were so very helpful and... kind. The campground is beautiful. We enjoyed hiking to the falls, catching fish in the lake, and sitting around the campfire each night. This is a wonderful place to bring your family and enjoy nature. Highly recommend!read more

Great place to stay. Just a few minutes from downtown Mentone and easy to bypass Mentone if your heading to Desoto... state park or Fort Payne. The owners are really nice and very helpful. Actual privacy in the bathrooms too. Not like your typical campground bath house. Can't say enough to describe this great campground in one of my favorite places.read more

We only stayed for one night, which there is a two night minimum usually but the lady let us just stay for one anyways... because she is awesome, and we LOVED it!! The night before we stayed in the primitive campground in Desoto State Park and had 2 very loud/partying neighbors. At Tranquility that didn’t happen. Everyone respected each other during the quote hours. Very awesome place! We will be back next time we come to little river/Desoto. The owners were very nice!!read more

Absolutely loved camping at Tranquility Campgrounds! Beautiful, natural and relaxing environment. Dewey and Ruth,... owners of the property went above and beyond our expectations. Dewey was extremely helpful when we ran into some unplanned circumstances with our camper. The owners make this camp ground top notch. Great people and highly recommend!read more

This is a great campground, it was so quiet the owners run the place and are right on whatever you need. Brought us... firewood for the night after hours, that happens, no where. Very limited cell and internet, which is another good thing, we stayed up playing board games and sitting by the fire. (they have internet we just didn't buy it, dont tell my teenage daughter we told her they didn't have it, lol.) We stayed for 1 night, my wife added this campground to our binder of must stays on the road.read more

The lake and trails provide a wonderful outdoor experience on site, but the campground is near DeSoto State Park and the Little River Canyon National Preserve, too. We are so happy to have happened upon this treasure.read more
