looking for place to setup near birmingham al

I didnt know where to post this and i hope its not out of place. i just took a promotion and the job is in birmingham and my wife and i are currently living near huntsville al. she just got a job in her field after finishing her masters degree earlier this summer. so, in order to not have her quit her job just yet, i bought a 40' national islander and am going to full time it. what i need is a place to post it up near birmingham so i wont have to drive back and fourth 7 days but maybe just 3-4 times a week. i googled places in birmingham but I didnt get a lot of results. what i would like is to pay a homeowner monthly with a couple of months up front for use and utilities. someone with plenty of space. im quiet, blue collar, will be working most time 10-12 hour days. my wife is professional and its just us two. mid-to early 30's. very dependable and courteous. as stated earlier, my rv is 40' and fully self contained. looking for someone in birmingham or a few areas north of birmingham. possibly could turn into a long term deal. maybe 6 months or longer.

It may be hard to find a homeowner with out restrictions by homeowners association or maybe city/county laws.

Also a sewer hook up may also be a problem.

Campgrounds near Birmingham.

Oak Mountain State Park is very nice. It is located just south of Birmingham. Not to many places in or around Birmingham, there is a KOA but I have only stayed in Oak Mnt.

I stayed at Oak Mountain for 3 1/2 months because of a new job. Quiet, full hook ups, and reasonable. The campground is a long way from the south entrance, but that is the only RV entrance. Once you are there the north entrance is good for autos. There were some frosty mornings in November, but they didn't prevent getting where I wanted to go. If I remember correctly, there is a fuel/truck stop at the I-65 exit to go to the park and they had propane. I left the gas furnace set at a low temp during the day and suplimented with an electric heater in the evenings the days I needed heat. Try it. You can keep looking for something else if you do not like it.

The post from MRBOYER is a good suggestion. Have stayed in Oak Mountain park and enjoyed the park. Close to Brimingham but quiet and good facilities.
Good luck.

Ditto on Oak Mtn park being great place to stay. There is a campground in Helena called Cherokee Park that is O.K. but not great it is on Rt. 93 a few miles from the interstate. They have a lot of full timers there. The monthly rate is not bad. I've stayed there when visiting relatives in the area.

We enjoyed Oak Mountain, very nice park, campground approx 5 miles from gate.
Tannehill nice state park.
Ball park in Hoover is nice, close to town just off the interstate. We normally stay here if passing through.

RV Park in Hoover

We have children and grand children in B'ham. We have used the Regions Park,(Hoover Stadium) for over 3 years. It is very nice. All paved, full hook-ups including cable. They have a graduated scale based on how long you stay. The park is patroled regularly by Hoover Park Police as well as Hoover PD. Phone is 866-466-8378. The park is conveniently located near interstates as well as any form of shopping you need. Plenty of restaurants.
I would recommend to not stay at Birmingham South Campground in Pelham.

Good Luck! and Congrats!

My vote is the beautiful Tannehill Historical State Park - 30 min from Hoover, 15 from Bessemer. The park is between B'ham and Tuscaloosa.
