Lots of space Lots of activities

Lots of different activities and area to explore. Unfortunately, the beach area can be overrun with drinking adults. Needs more patrolling.

Took a walk on a few of their many trails and saw some of their bird observatories, very cool. Easy to access, tons of space to roam and easy to park and walk as there are many lots so you never get to far from your car if you don't want to. Plenty of places to fish and enjoy water... More

We stopped over for one night in the campground on our way to Florida. The campground is clean, has nice bathhouses and is nearby plenty of other activities in the park. It was January and chilly so we didn't do anything else but camp and take the dog for short walks. The park has trails, a lake and other activities.... More

Took a ride through the State Park. They have a lot of facilities. Including horse back riding, golf, swimming, fishing, camping, picnicking, etc. Would like some more time walking some of the trails and playing golf.

First let me question why a few are criticizing the Christmas light display at the amphitheater on here when they are in no way connected to the park. But that is another story I guess. A spur trail has been added off of the blue trail starting at quarter mile post #1 that leads 0.3 miles North to an overlook... More

Love Oak Mountain. We live about 15 minutes away and it is a wonderful place to spend a day outdoors. It's $3/person to get in for the day, and from there your options are pretty open. Hiking, biking, petting zoo, trail rides on horseback (but it's recommended to reserve them in advance). The park houses an Amazing rehabilitation center for... More

We will be back. Oak mountain is definitely not as well marked as Anniston;s Cold water mountain trails, but the ride was just as epic if not more. We had a blast. Warning: if it says intermediate - it is! Pack food as you will be out for a while. It took us 5 hours to cover all the trails... More

This was our first time to take our children to the Christmas light presentation and we were very excited. While all Christmas decorations, to us, are beautiful and add to the holiday spirit, this show needs some updating. At most it would be considered very amateurish. The drive through is very short, the decorations are very simple, areas with no... More

Camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, biking, BMX, horseback riding, swimming, picnicking, petting zoo - OMSP offers something for everyone. The trail system is great with lots elevation changes, fantastic vistas and sights such as Peavine Falls, Molly's Meadow and Schackleford's Point. The campground has sites for trailers & tents and, if you are a backpacker, there are primitive sites as well.... More
