Went on a 4 hour hike to the waterfall in the park and then hiked around the lake, great day on Sunday 8/22/16. My cousin Leo was showing me around and this park has some of his favorite mountain bike trails.

Oak Mountain has beautiful walking and biking trails. We took a canoe out on the lake and even tried a little fishing...not catching, just fishing. Great relaxing day.

Beautiful outdoor venue, clean with adequate restrooms. Good selection of food/drink options (albeit pricey as usual). The staff was helpful/friendly, parking plentiful.

GREAT place to have fun! Flipside Watersports is inside Oak Mountain State Park and is a place to wakeboard with a cable system. You can also kayak, paddleboard, picnic and is an awesome place to have a party or a picnic.

I love Oakwood Mountain. The animal rescue is great. The petting zoo never gets tiring. The water is relaxing and restful. Great time picnicking.

If you're up for a good hike, take a friend or partner, and your dog, and go hike one of their trails. I love the trail with the big waterfall.
