Attended a conference there and ate at restaurant. Can not comment on rooms. Facilities were very nice and staff most helpful. Lots of room to conduct your business with a beautiful and well cared for marina.

This is a beautiful clean park. We went for the British Car Show and then just enjoyed the day at the park. Make sure you go over the dam and check out the old cabins while you are there. We will definitely be back to stay in one of the lakeside cottages!

Thanks so much to State of Alabama's employees for doing such a great job in the upkeep of the park as well as the amenities provided.

This is a beautiful State Park. It has been remodeled in the last few years. It has a great restaurant overlooking the water and marina. The food is great. It's a great vacation spot for people who love the water.
