Great hiking trails, great biking trails, golf, horses, covered pavilions, a wakeboarding cable park, paddle boats/canoe rentals - this is definitely one of the better state parks in the state for a reason.

It was rainy during our visit, so we didn't get to do as much hiking as we would have liked. We did do a short hike down to the top of the falls and it was a well marked train. My only negative comment is that they could provide better maps since you have to pay to use the park.

This state park is huge and there are so many things to do. There is a petting zoo, a beach area with sand, a scenic overlook at the top of the mountain, waterfalls, trails for hiking/biking and riding horses, a golf course, canoe/kayak/pedal boats, etc.

The park is beautiful! A hidden gem in a Alabama. We picnicked by the lake. The water was beautiful and everybody enjoyed themselves.

This is one of Alabama's premiere parks and we try to get here as often as possible. It was our second Alabama State Park we visited and it keeps drawing us back! It is no exaggeration that there is something for anyone here. I could laundry list them, but you should visit the alapark website to see for yourself. We... More

I decided that I wanted to brave taking my three children camping on my own since my husband could not take entire spring break trip off. So I planned to take my 14 year old son and 2 year old and 4 month daughters to Oak Mountain for a few reasons. First it's located in our former home town with... More

This was our first visit to Oak Mountain State Park. We just had a day to spend there and was amazed at all there is to do. Can't wait to go back for a weekend!

This is a really large state park, it's about six miles past the entrance back to the camp sites. Great looking Cabins, and nice looking Golf Course. Hiking trails, BMX bike course, horse trails, fishing area and paddle boats and canoes for rent. Defiantly worth a day or several.

This park is huge and has so much to offer. Some trails will "kick your butt" but your hard work will pay off with outstanding views. Trail around the lake are easier and very enjoyable. The fishing area and pavilions are very well done. Don't miss the Tree Top Nature Trail and the rescued birds. The Rehabilitation Center is doing... More

Oak mountain is great for learing about animals, swimming, scenic drives and views, and hiking! I hiked to pea vine falls with my pup and it was great!
