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 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.

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

My wife and I went there this past weekend to look around and scout out some sites that we liked for a future camping trip. I had been to Oak Mountain before but never to there camping grounds. When we got to the first gate we were told that we would still have to pay the 5.00 per person to... More

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.
