Nice Family Park

You can picnic, ride a boat, swim. This is a very nice park to visit during the hot summer months. It can be very relaxing. I loved renting the row boats!

This State Park met my expectations. We liked everything it had to offer. The campsite was quiet for the 4 nights we were there. Everyone friendly. Some sites were very slanted, although nothing you couldn't cope with. No wifi and satellite too blocked through the trees. The showers/bathrooms/laundry rooms were very old and could use an update, although they were... More

Very, very large park with lake swimming, horseback riding, golf along with paved campsites. Wifi, hot showers. We stayed here two nights while visiting friends in the area. Even the rain showers couldn't dampen our enjoyment of this lovely spot.

My wife and I camped and hiked here. The whole state park is very well maintained and the park rangers were very friendly and helpful. We went on a very cold weekend in February. Next time we will plan a trip in warmer months.

It is beautiful!!! The staff is extremely friendly!! This was our first family vacation, and we brought our 2 1/2 year old tent camping for the first time!!! The bath houses need some updating, however they are very well maintained and cleaned daily!

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.
