We came across this park while on a road trip. We had brought a picnic lunch along and had first stopped at Guntersville State Park, but left there because the stench of burning garbage was very bad..... more

This is a great state park. Kind of a hidden gem that is somewhat off the beaten path. Incredible views that rival anything else in the state of Alabama. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Everything seemed to be very accessible. I definitely recommend this place if you’re in the area! Even if you’re not I’d say it’s worth a drive. If you don’t want to hike some great scenic spots are just steps away from parking so that’s always nice.
Absolutely loved this park. I'm not usually a fan of the parking lot style RV park, but this one was small enough that even when full, did not seem over crowded. The spots were very spacious, and some had a a (seasonal) creek running behind. The adjacent hiking was fantastic! Office staff was amazing, very helpful and polite. Only down side was the showers, and that is about par for the course at RV parks. Water pressure issues, and people don't know how to close doors.
