Description: The Catoma Loop is only a couple of years old and is FHU 50A with paved roads, concrete parking pads and pea gravel patio. Busy but quiet woods all around. On the Alabama River Lakes with a boat ramp in the older Antioch Loop which is in need of updating. Only water and electric there and better suited for smaller rigs. We were on site 35 right across from the playground. It is difficult to get the Catoma Loop to pop up on the Reserve America’s site. No swimming here but nice place to rides bikes, relax and soak up the green.
Activities: This is a very nicely done new loop in a COE Park. Can’t beat the deal! First thing I noticed was the sweet smell of honeysuckle. Having been in Florida all winter, I didn’t realize how much I missed the green of oaks, hickory, sweet gum and other hard wood trees. There was a cardinal here that tried to defend his territory from the other cardinal in our mirrors. Great place to relax and ride bikes. I saw 4-5 deer a couple of times during my morning jogs and soaked up more honeysuckle fragrance. Gin did a couple of projects here and we visited with her cousin Joe who lives in nearby Prattville.
Trash and Recycle: Dumpster at the dump station. A can at the main bathhouse that only takes cans for recycle.
