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...

Beautiful location for a race. We ran on the Blood Rock 50k.Tranquillity Lake is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The campsites were good with heated bathrooms too.

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.

Request Loop A . Some of the RV areas are on serious slopes with broken asphalt pads. The roads around the sites are ver rough and bathrooms are showing their age. Also check in time is 4 PM. The attendants are very nice but they will assign you the worst site available unless you request a specific site or area.... More

Went up to check out the campus at UAB and decided to check out the outbound app for any local things to do. We came across Kings Chair at Oak Park Mountain! And it was worth it! It's a beautiful place and the hike is worth the view! It was like $5 dollars to get into the park and it's... More

The park team and B.U.M.P group do a fantastic job of keeping the biking trails in great shape, and there are plenty of trails for every skill level. If you're a more advanced rider and like speed, check out the Lightning trail. If you're a new visitor and are more into hiking, get a trail map and hike to King's... More

This is a really nice state park. Swimming in the lake is nice. The best part are the views from the top of the mountain, you can drive and park to see them, or hike or bike along the mountaintop to see them as well.

We stayed here twice in the same week as we made our way to/from Florida beaches. I will combine these visits into one review. Pros: *isolation *host seemed nice enough Cons: *closest wifi is apparently at the golf course which is some distance from the campground, thank goodness for my cell phone data or I would have missed an important...

We took our kids there many times and enjoyed the quiet, the beaches, the demonstration farm and the camping. So many great memories. Now that we have grandkids, we hoped to give them the same fun. Not so much. The farm is still great, but if you go to the beach, your stuff will be stolen. If you walk on... More
