Monte and Michele are the owners and operators of Bairdsnest Campground. Monte retired from the Marine Corps after serving nearly 30 years and Michele aggressively tracked oil well production for an oil industry scout based out of San Antonio, TX. We both grew up in a small town in south Texas but have spent the last 20 plus years moving from coast to coast. We are the proud parents of two adult sons that are achieving their own successes in life.
With retirement from military service looming, we decided that business ownership would be our next venture in life. As a child, Michele grew up camping with her family, we both enjoy the outdoors and hitting the open road on our motorcycles. We enjoy meeting new people and reminiscing about the days adventure over an open camp fire. Therefore, we chose to operate a campground, providing lodging opportunities for RV’rs, campers, families and motorcyclists.
As avid motorcyclists we found that staying at a campground was more inviting than lodging at hotels, not to say much more affordable. We have spent the last half decade traveling throughout the United States in search of the “right” location for our venture and we found that Mentone, AL was an excellent location. Due to the history of the town, convenience to DeSoto State Park, DeSoto Falls, Little River Canyon Preserve, winding/twisting roads and the great outdoors we knew we had found our next adventure.
We would love to have you visit our campground, whether your stay is for a night, a weekend or longer. Bairdsnest Campground is a quaint, simple campground providing amenities for RV/Campers and tent campers with future plans for yurt and cabin accommodations.
