If you like to hike, bike (road or trail), golf, swim, picnic or ride horses - this is the park for you. There are facilities supporting all of these activities. However, the mountain biking is the best in the area with trails ranging from beginner/family to expert level. Go to Birmingham Urban Mountain Pedalers (BUMP.org) site for detailed information

The park has loads of hiking and biking trails. There is a great lake for swimming with excellent facilities. The campsites are very well maintained and the facilities are kept in good repair. They even have cabins in the woods you can rent. There is a golf course for those who play golf. It is a great place to take... More

We spent 3 days there visiting with our grown children, their spouses & dates over the Christmas 2016 weekend. I'd call the cabin "upscale-primitive", but it was exactly what we wanted. If you want fancy, this is probably not your place. A quiet mountain valley next to a small lake, 2BR-1BA (both BRs share the bath between the two BRs);... More

Very nice forested setting. Adequate space between sites. About 15 minutes from freeway. Lots of stuff for kids and the young at heart. We were really just using it as a base to visit my son in Birmingham so we didn't take advantage of the petting zoo, archery range, etc., etc. We had tried two previous campgrounds in Birmingham in...

On a beautiful fall weekend day we visited this park and paid the low Senior rate for admittance for the day. We chose a trail for a one hour hike knowing we would have to loop back after looking out from overlooks. The trailhead had parking and restroom facilities and the trails are well marked. I would rate the Blue... More

We stayed in the cabins available for rent. Lots to do: fishing, biking, horse back riding, hiking, petting farm. Fun for all ages. Cabins were comfortable and stocked well for cooking. Would definitely recommend.
