Great visit

I have been coming to Taney Hill for many years. The camp ground is first class and all the exhibits are worth seeing.

We have camped at Tannehill for Thanksgiving for the past 30 years non stop. We have seen a lot of changes and improvements over the years. There have been improvements to campground #1 with the addition of sewer a few years ago. The item still needed badly is an electrical upgrade in #1. Power lines attached to trees and hanging...

We went to Tannehill State Park for the Trade Days,but even if the Trade Days were not in operation,this is worth the trip. We will go back and maybe on an off weekend,there is lots of history and it is very tourist friendly

We decided to rent on of the Tannehill log cabins for our visit with Family, in the Birmingham area. After looking through the Face Book photos of each cabin we picked the Nail Cabin for our stay. Nail has 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed which were comfortable and had good mattress covers. There is a full kitchen, with... More

Had a great time at Trade Days - it was my first trip and there was a really good collection of vendors. Food was a little on the scarcer side, with the main food vendor running out of funnel cakes, hamburgers and hot dogs. Overall we had a great time though

Tannehill is the end of the line for the mountains. Literally, the Appalachian Mountains end in the park. I always enjoy finding geographical oddities in my travels, and it was good fun to find the end of a mountain range. The park is conveniently located off of I-20/I-59, and the short detour is worth it to add an interesting stop... More

We have camped Tannehill for 30+ years and always enjoyed the experience. We stayed a couple of weeks and had a blast. A word of caution.....we saw numerous kids swimming in the water because there is little to do for kids at this place. However, beware of the snakes when in the water, near the water, or walking the trails... More

Our family is very fortunate to live just a few miles from Tannehill. This is a great park, with something for everyone. Walking, hiking, biking, mountain biking, exploring, learning the history, visiting the museum, attending events hosted by the park, camping, fishing, etc. The list of things to do goes on and on.... We spend time at this park every... More
