We stayed here in a TT with our 2 girls (ages 5 and 11)for Spring Break at site A-23. Sites are a decent size and our was shaded. The tent sites seemed a little crowded. Bathhouses need updating desperately. There is only 1 shower and sink in the Ladies bathhouse. We hiked most of the trails, fished at the lake and took the kids to the petting zoo and pony rides. The nature center and trail was a favorite as was Peavine Falls. However, we had hoped to kayak, but they only rent them on the weekends until summer begins. The girls had a hard time riding bikes due to the traffic and the park is so large that you have to drive to most everything :( We liked that we were 5 minutes from Birmingham (lots to do)and took advantage when it stormed for 2 days during our trip. We visited the Summit, the Galleria, saw a movie, and even found a doctor easily when our 5 year came down w/ an impromptu ear infection. Overall, a nice place to stay if you want to be close to B'ham w/o being in the middle of the city (very convenient to I-65 also). We may return again for a fall trip- too stormy in the spring months.

The campground was probably the worst we have ever camped at. The sites felt more like a parking lot than a campground. very little shade and out in the open. They had a small beach you could walk to from the campsite and it was kinda nice. We had it mostly to ourselves and we had a good time there. But don't expect much. Its really small. The main public beach on the lake was very crowded and we had a hard time finding a place to settle down without feeling like we were in the way. Not a bad place to camp but not our favorite. I would stay for a weekend but not longer.

Great place to camp with the kids. We had only a short walk to the beach. The boys went fishing and horseback riding too. The staff were very friendly.

Love this place! We tent camped on a water/electric site for a week. It was quiet and shady. Private camping swim area, not very accesable but nice nonetheless. Lots of beautiful trails. Of course there was a little bad. Had to park on road and tote stuff down a hill across a "dry" ditch and up another large hill. Coons ran around at night digging in stuff, bees took over everything! And then came the thunderstorms. We ended up in the bathhouse. Our tent ended up with 4 inches of water. The tent pad was lower than the rest of the soil. Needless to say started looking for a travel trailer when we got home!

Loved this state park. Passed through and camped here on the way home from Florida. Stayed two days. DW and I truly enjoyed the bird sanctuary. There is something here for everyone even if you don't camp. Golf, horseback riding, row and paddle boats, BMX bike track, Radio controlled car track, hiking trails, etc. The campground was a little outdated when we camped here. (reason for the four star rating) I'm told it's been remodeled completely. I'll be back on my next trip to Florida.

We went here for our first (06/08) camping excursion with our granddaughter. We all loved it. There was plenty to keep us entertained, lots to see and do. Our tent site was clean, it had a picnic table and a fire pit. I'm finding that not all parks offer this. The staff was very friendly. I didn't see a swimming pool, but hey there was the lake! I think there are 3 beaches in the park. We fished, hiked, went on a hayride at the petting farm, visited the nature center, rode the paddle boats and enjoyed hanging out at our tent site. Walked through the creek in the camp grounds and played bingo. Everyone there was having fun, but at 10pm it was quiet. The bathhouses were a bit aged but they were clean and we had hot water. We've been back and will continue to visit Oak Mountain. It was a great first experience.

We love this park. We live nearby, so we go often. Some of the spots are rather close together and the bathroom facilities are not the best, but they are adequate. The best part about this park is that there is so much to do. There are miles of hiking trails and bike trails. There's a nature center, fishing, paddle boats and canoes. There is also a BMX track that the kids just love. I would recommend this campground to anyone with a family and anyone else who doesn't mind the sounds of families at play.

Went for quick getaway before school year started. Large park with something for everyone (including golf and horseback riding). Lake has boating, fishing, and swimming. Walked two miles to Pelham Falls (it was a drought so "falls" was more like "trickle"). Campground was a bit noisy with a large tent camping group area.
