Pine Glen Recreation Area offers camping sites for 21 campsites, cooking grills, sanitary facilities, fishing, hiking, and access to the Pinhoti Trail. Use of Pine Glen Recreation Area is on a first come, first serve basis. It’s a favorite with hunters because it is centrally located in the Choccolocco Wildlife Management Area.
Nice spread out campsites.
Pine Glen is my favorite campground in this region of Alabama. It is fairly remote and has few amenities. (vault toilets and trash cans but nothing else at time of writing.) Shoal Creek runs right past the campground, giving a pleasant white noise at night, and it is situated in a glen of pine trees. It is open with little underbrush, but the sites are spaced out enough to have some privacy. The Pinhoti Trail runs straight through the campground and provides hiking opportunities, and if you are willing to drive a little while there is a lot to do in the area.
Insanely peaceful and quiet. Even with a full campground the sites are all spaced far enough from each other that you won’t hear your neighbors. Have camped here multiple times and would definitely go back again. Plus you can do a little hiking along the river and up the ridge if you want!
This campground was nice except none of the water faucets worked.
