Service Park Campground is located on Coffeeville Lake just west of Coffeeville, AL. The lake is the third largest in the Black Warrior and Tombigbee system with a surface area of 8,800 acres and a length of 97 miles. The area provides excellent camping, fishing, boating, and picnicking.
The Service Park Campground offers 32 sites with electric and water hookups. Additional amenities include a dump station, laundry facilities, hot showers, a pay phone, and a boat ramp nearby. Site Fees are $16.00-$18.00 per night. Sites 1-16 are $16.00 Sites 17-32 are $18.00
The park is also active with birds any time other than the hot summer months, and even then, you may see long-legged waders, Ospreys, Bald Eagles and Anhingas. The half-mile long entrance road is lined with an all-age mixed forest. Look for songbirds and a variety of woodpeckers (including Pileated, Red-headed and Hairy). This is a good place to study the songs of Wood Thrushes and Hooded and Kentucky Warblers.
Beyond the entrance gate (no admission fee for day-use), the road forms a loop around the restroom building. Winter may bring a handful of gulls and some waterfowl on and around the lake. Waders may be present throughout the year, though they are most numerous in late summer and fall. Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons are year-round occupants. Look for Wood Storks from July through October and White Ibis, Little Blue Herons, Green Herons, and a few Snowy Egrets at any time, though typically in the warmer months.
You will find many songbirds- Northern Parulas, Yellow-throated Warblers, Summer Tanagers, Yellow-billed Cuckoos, flycatchers and several species of vireos – all are common in the woods here. There are Eastern Bluebirds in the open areas all year, along with Eastern Kingbirds in the warm months and Eastern Phoebes in the cooler ones.
