We tent camped at Oak Mountain in October, 2020. We were on the A loop, site A59. The site met my expectations. We don't expect luxury, just basic amenities and a little distance between sites so there is some privacy. Note that ALL tent sites in the park are considered Walk-in. I could not determine that from looking at the map or any information online. It was fine, there were three of us and it was no big deal to carry our gear up the hill. The site was large, level, and had a metal fire ring and an old, but serviceable picnic table. There are some big roots about, so you have to be a little creative in where you pitch your tent. The bath houses are not the worst I've ever seen, but certainly not the best. They are very small, old and rusty and spidery. There is hot water and heat, and the toilets flush. Toilet tissue ran out by Saturday morning and was never replenished, so take you own. There is a $5 fee per person to enter the park, but if you tell them you are campers and show your reservation, you don't have to pay it. The folks at the camp store/office are nice, but the computer system is incredibly slow and it took forever to get checked in on a Friday afternoon. They gave us a free trail map to make up for the wait. The camp store only has the basics. Don't buy the firewood! Demand is so high that they can't keep enough dry wood in stock, and what they sell is green and WILL NOT BURN. We'll take a propane fire pit or our own wood next time. As for the rest of the park, it is without compare! There is so much to do, and the hiking trails are the best maintained and marked I have ever seen. Absolutely beautiful! There are tons of other activities, too, but we are hikers and did not do any of those. The kayakers seemed to be having a lovely time. It looked fun.

I’m embarrassed as an Alabamian to have people visit this campground. Grass up to my knees and our fire pit which also serves as your grill looks to have been run over several times. No attempt was made to replace it after it was reported. Facilities are run But boy the golf course looks great.

Normally my Bride and I cruise. Now we are LAND CRUISING. Oak Mountain State Park is a great SEC weekend getaway. Biking, hiking, boating & horseback riding are just a few examples. We were too early for Fall Foliage.

We just happened to have stopped at a local RV park and wanted to explore the area. We were so lucky to have found this great park. The golf course looked great. The views from Peavine Falls were amazing. I highly recommend this one!
