This place is terrific. We have an RV and camped here in July 2014. The campsites are nicely wooded, private and very clean. Miles of MTB trails and plenty of bike friendly roads for us road bikers. There is so much to do here. I wish we could have stayed longer. This may be nicest state park we have ever... More

There is so much to do there that anyone who is looking for an outdoor activity pretty much can find it. Hiking? Check. Camping? Got it, both rustic and in cabins. Canoeing? Yep. Mountain biking? This is a mountain... More

Oak Mt is a very beautiful place to spend a few days camping. You can tent camp or come with a motorhome, 5th wheel or trailer. We camp with a 27' trailer. There is a lot to do in the park: hiking, horseback riding, swimming, etc. The camping area is clean and well kept. The bath houses are a little... More

My wife and I along with some friends decided to take advantage of the good weather on our trip to Alabama and hiked Peavine Falls. After getting a bit turned around we found our way and started out trek. It was simple yet rugged terrain and we enjoyed every minute of it, especially cooling off in the water at the... More

I enjoyed hiking two trails on my first visit to the park. I hiked the blue trail to the falls and then back to the north trailhead on the white trail. The hike was great! It was Sunday, but there were hardly any people on the trails, especially toward the middle of the park. There were plenty of people enjoying... More

The hiking trail system is excellent, ranging from short, easy trails to long and sometimes challenging trails that stretch out as many as 17 miles. One of my favorite things to do is start walking and decide as... More
