Joe Wheeler State Park has a very nice campground but only the A side is currently open because B and C sections were damaged by a tornado. A side is nicely wooded and very quiet with nice spacing between sites. The sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Some sites have a great view of the lake. The bathhouses are adequate but not fantastic. There is a small camp store at the campground which stocks many of the essentials. There is a lot to do in the park including hiking, boating, kayaking, and golfing. I think that there is normally more things to do there, but the day use area is closed right now due to tornado damage.

I hate that you had that experience. If you are ever in Joe Wheeler State Park and feel you are treated anything less than welcome, we encourage you to report that as soon as possible.

Brought the boat and was able to dock right outside our room. Clean comfortable room with two queen beds. Have stayed in cottages and lodge. Both are highly recommend!

Pretty lodge with large rooms, restaurant on site and marina with boat rentals. And what a big lake. We'll be back.

My wife and I had reservations and when we checked in we were greeted at the desk with a smile and a lady that made us feel we were very welcome there. The room and bathroom were large. The food in the resturant was great. We only spent 1 night but we’ll be back to stay longer. All of the people that work there are very helpful.
