  • Beautiful hiking trails. Very clean park and helpful staff. The rustic cabins are worth it. Make sure to plan time to see Desoto falls and little river canyon.  more »
  • The park is very well kept and clean. Had a great experience enjoying nature, hiking and playing in the water.  more »
  • I have been coming here with my grandparents and cousins since I was a kid. Now I bring my own family. We love the hiking trails, waterfalls, and being close to nature. We love the Welcome Center and the Nature Center. The campgrounds are fantastic, and the bathhouses are always clean, and well lit and kept. The kids love the campfire stories, the nature walks, and the craft classes.
  • Excellent spot in Alabama for enjoying nature! Beautiful river, cliffs for fantastic views, loads of trails for all abilities and great access to some of the best nature Alabama has to offer. Primitive campground is great w/water, trash cans at every site, pavilion and vault toilet. Bathhouse at the improved campground is super clean!
