Campground closed

Campground is shut down. Run down. Hasn’t been up kept for some reason. Guessing COVID. Did have boat ramp and a vault toilet for day use only. Looks to have been a nice place when it was opened.

Bankhead National Forest camping

**There is hiking, swimming, mountain biking, boating, fishing, and swimming here. Incredible scenery including waterfalls, old growth forests, canyons, etc. Close to waterways. The campground is medium sized, dense forests surround the campsites. The amenities are pretty standard. Fairly easy…
