I really enjoy Smith lake campground it has a lot of great sites. There are plenty of shades sites for summer camping. They have primitive and powered sites with most having picnic tables and some with shared water. It is very affordable and quiet with lots to do. They have canoe rentals, mini golf, pool, and a beach area by the lake. The bathhouses are close by to the powered sites which is really nice. The only drawbacks are the bathhouses at least for the mens side is they need to have a place to hang your shower bag with clothes and toiletries instead of having to sit them on the floor. (Tip now that I've been a couple of times go buy a suction cup hook to hang your bag or towel on). I'll definitely be going back! Note you'll have to check with front office about pool and canoe rentals due to the covid-19. 403 Co Rd 386, Cullman, AL 35057
Awesome place with a beautiful lake! Lots of playgrounds for the kids and some very nice camping spots!
The tent sites are nicely tucked inside of wooded areas, the RV sites are tightly packed together with little shade. We stayed on site #51 & 52, sites weren’t horrible but there was a lot of trash including random articles of clothing. The bathrooms were not the cleanest but also not the dirtiest. There’s general supplies provided. The park has a lot to offer if you’re looking for more than just a night outdoors. Probably come back in the off season.
Staying on tent site #55 power/ close to water spout. Bathhouse really close by nice shady lot. Will try to book this one in the future :) bathhouse was clean considering more people last time I came it was off season and not the weekend was worried it would be too crowded. There are a lot more people in beach area but wasn’t too bad and the campsites are quiet and peaceful. No grill on site. Pool was closed due to corona virus still wanting to check that out.
This is your typical summer ultimate hangout spot for all and locals alike. There were tons of permanent. RV spots as this campground has over 300 sites and many of them had full service hook-ups. We stayed during the slow season and was raining the entire time. When the rain periodically stopped we were able to explore the expansive campground which allowed for a nice walk. Due to the ground being completely saturated at the time we weren’t able to explore off the paved or gravel roads. Overall it was a great dated campground to stop at. In the summer time I’m sure this place is hopping with all of the amenities open. We would come back here again during the off season as we don’t like the crowds of people!

We got a tent site with power. Great price! Clean park, lake is always a good thing. Lights at camp ground kinda bright, but guess if I needed to go pee that would help lol. Lady working office was pretty nice and helpful. Has a little store can get almost anything you might need. Bath house shower had great hot water with good pressure. Felt safe here that’s important. I’d definitely come back. Probably next weekend lol the beach area had a lot of rocks! Probably due to water level low had to go buy some water shoes, but then it was all good.
Seems to be more people living there than camping. The pull thrus are not a true pull thru. Just a big gravel lot!!
We were stopping in Cullman County to be with family. Since we were driving through with our RV, we stayed at Smith Lake for the evening. It was ok. The pool was nice. The lake is always nice, but the camping area itself feels like more of a trailer park than RV Park. It looked like the majority of the campers there were for the long haul.
Park has cabins on site, places for rvs, and also areas for tents. There is a beach area and a boat launch. They have pavilions with grills and electrical outlets
Great location by the water. This extremely crowded on holidays and the bathrooms are a bit of a walk from the tent camping, but if you are up for the walk it’s not terrible. They have a small store which is nice as well and there is a gas station up the road.
