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

Well: this is one of the prettiest parks I have been in, and I have been an RVer for forty years. Tranquil lake, lovely scenic drive up a... More

We are new to the area and are discovering all that Oak Mountain State Park has to offer. There are hiking and biking trails, a beach, an equestrian center, picnic areas, and a lake. We bring our own canoes and enjoy the peacefulness of the lake and have taken advantage of some of the hiking trails. Where some of the... More

Beautiful park. Shocked at how big it is. It's well maintained, the campground is nice. Bit pricy compared to other state parks. Will come back again.

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.
