We stayed in the campground with our 5th Wheel and found the campground adequate and in good condition. The office staff was very helpful and quite friendly. They were polite and answered all our questions. It rained very hard while we were there so we did not get to see as much of the campground as we would have liked.... More

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

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
