Great campground, close to 5 points and downtown restaurants. Sites are spaced good and all have fire pits. Only some of the sites have sewer, but the dump sites are convenient.

We stay here on our way to ark. To visit family. Very nice place to spend a couple days after being on the road. Motorcycle friendly camp ground for $65 a night. Great views and hiking. Country store at bottom of the mountain

We popped into the park for a quick look around, just to see what it was all about. It offers stunning overlooks and miles hiking and mountain biking trails. We took a quick hike to the Japanese Tea Garden, which features a quaint pagoda in the middle of the woods. We can't wait to return for a long weekend to... More

Thought the park was all there was when we turned off the main highway. Did not realize there were houses in the area. The lodge was a beautiful setting for a fall wedding.

We wanted to go to the Space Center on our way south and decided to layover in Huntsville for a couple nights. We picked this campground without a lot of analysis because it was close to the Center and we were only staying two nights. What a wonderful surprise!! First we had no idea that the campground would be on... More

If woods hiking is what you love, with the occasional view then this park is perfect, I did the mountain mist trial, it's not too hard but long, be aware the trail ends and then you have to take a country road walk back to the start it's not a loop trial, this takes around 30 minutes and makes the...

This was a nice place to relax. The playground was shaded around the picnic tables but the slides were hot to the touch. We enjoyed a nice hike to the Japanese Tea Garden.
