We camped in the Corinth campground in Bankhead National Forest. The site was beautiful. Clean, wonderful paved sites on which to park our camper. It was quiet and there were spaces between the campsites which is always a plus. We saw a deer near our camper which was such a pleasure. Did not use the bathhouse but it looked nice... More

This is a fantastic National Forest campground with full hookups. We only paid $20 per night for full hookups. The restroom and shower facilities were clean.

We stayed for two nights in clear creek campground which was beautiful and perfectly maintained for $26/night lakeside tent camping. It's about 45 min from the ranger station in Double Springs which is a MUST for figuring out where you're headed--don't try to figure it out through the Internet alone, we tried and failed and should have just made time...

The entire area is nothing short of magical--miles and miles of trails, campgrounds, swimming and water sports, fishing, hunting, and literally anything you can think of doing. (Corinth campground is fantastic! Smith Lake Dam is cool to visit. There is so much to do around the lake and in the forest! Oh, don't forget Brushy Lake Campground and Pine Torch... More
