While in Pelham overnight on business, I decided to check out Oak Mountain State Park. Such a great place to enjoy nature, golf, horseback riding, cycling and everything else the outdoors offer. Extremely clean and well maintained. The golf course is excellent and the facilities top notch. Whether you're on your own or with the family, I highly recommend you... More

This is a diamond in the rough, for sure. I'm a cyclist and an occasional golfer. They have both here. The course is pretty nice for a public place and usually not crowded during the week. It's been rated in the top 10 in the country for cycling. You can ride the gate to gate, and back, and knock off... More

We stayed at Cabin 3, what a wonderful peaceful area. The view from the cabin was wonderful. I sat on the front porch in the swing with my coffee! It was wonderful! There were geese and lots wildlife! There were paddle boats and canoes to use along with everything you need. The lake was beautiful and there was plenty to... More

I can't say enough good things about this state park. My family camps a lot and have stayed at many state parks and campgrounds around the country. We love this one! Beautiful and very large park. Tons of great biking and hiking and even horseback trails. Great Lakes to fish or swim or row boat/ canoe. Well kept campground. Shower... More

Oak Mountain State Park is my backyard, literally. My property is bounded by the park. There are a petting zoo, hiking trails, fishing, boating, camping, all sorts of activities. There are special events, also.

This is my favorite spot for golf! The staff is great in the pro shop and in the eatery. Everyone makes you feel welcome from the time you enter the park until you leave. Great place to go and relax.

We have enjoyed camping here and will continue to visit. Great hiking trails though most will have to be driven to because they're on the other side of the park. Some sites are nice and shaded and others are less than desirable. The bath houses have always been super clean. The complaints I have are with reservations and staff. It... More

First off, it's a gorgeous venue. However, for RV camping, it needs help. Sites are super close together, sort of. They will have two sites 100% side by side. They don't even look separate. Then there will be space and two more. I reserved well in advance for a large RV and we were given a 30 amp site. Since... More

The park is well maintained and offers full hookup sites. They don't offer wifi or cable tv but we were able to get quite a few channels via antenna. The staff was very friendly as were the volunteers who stay in the park. The campground is a little over four miles into the park but it is a very pretty... More
