My title summed it up pretty well. We are full-time RVers and this was our 23rd state this year, so we've camped at a lot of parks. Oak Mountain is large and offers great amenities and would be a great place to spend several weeks, if it weren't for the showers. They are outdated, oddly configured, moldy and dirty. On... More

Rv camping. Campsites close together. Bath house only one shower. Firepits. Very well maintained. November leaves very beautiful. Lots of bike riders. Golf course. Farm animal area. Large lake to fish. This is a pretty park but seeing it once was enough for us.

We went tent camping. There was a nice wall at each site as well as a fire pit with a grill. The only thing we did not like was the gravel area the tent rested on. The bathhouses were basic but had the essentials. The staff was extremely friendly. We are already ready to go back!

I love to hunt for mushrooms - hike and just enjoy the many wonderful trails in the park. We usually time our visit so that we can have lunch at the Oak Mountain Grill- fixed and served by the lovely ladies at the golf club house. Sitting at the porch and watching the golfers, while munching a turkey sandwich and... More

Top Notch! First off: The campground is fantastic! The spots, for RV, Pop-up, Tent, All are excellent. Although, the bathhouses are in need of some updating. They were "okay." The hiking trails were amazing, both inside the campground and around this magnificently sized state park. I cannot stress enough--There are miles & miles & miles of hiking, mountain biking, and...

Oak Mountain has many miles of hiking, equestrain and biking trails, canoe, paddle boat and paddle board rentals, fishing, swimming and a golf course. There is also a wild bird rehabilitation center with a self guided tour.The hike to Pea Vine falls is steep but worth the effort when the falls are flowing, but be aware, the pool at the... More

Getting a reservation was a nightmare, nothing online & only on phone line to call? But, finally got thru & thought we were set. Arrived about 5pm on a Friday night, long line & workers who were slower than slow. They assign you a site, but you can go back & change it if you don't like it. The site... More

We camped here in our RV as a second resort. We'd actually planned to stay at Tannehill Ironworks Historic State Park but it was full. This is a GREAT alternative and only about 35 minutes away. It was not too hard to find, although our GPS confused things a bit. The man at the front gate directed us to the... More

If you are a trail rider, bring your bike. Oak Mountain is known for their trails. Great place to take the family and get in touch with nature.
