I’ve been camping here 2 or 3 times a year for the past 19 years. Wooded area, spacious campsites, & the cabins are always so clean. Trade days & Halloween are my favorite times to come. A couple of short hiking trails. A lot of history. Ironwork museum I think it’s like $1 or $2 a person & it’s worth walking through.
Beautiful historic buildings and a very cold spring fed creek. Great for kids bikes and swimming in the creek. Bathhouses need attention but overall very nice camping place.
Beautiful location but the bathrooms were dirty. It seems we went during a semi busy time. The have lots of spots and most are in the shade. There is a creek to splash in and lots of history to enjoy. There is a nice playground for the kids. Bring lots of bug spray.
This camp site has camping from primitive all the way to cabins. Bring your RV or camper and enjoy the views. Situated on a beautiful mountain side just minute from university of alabama. Camp beside a churning creek and listen to nature. Historical museum included with very reasonable camping fee or just a visitor charge. Very nice homestyle restaurant and creamery in site. Craft cabins to keep the kids entertained and plenty of trails for hiking. Visit the original forge site or go watch the blacksmith school and learn some tricks.
This is one of my favorite campgrounds in Alabama. So much for so many to enjoy. In the fall they have a Halloween decoration contest between campers and then after that comes the Christmas. There is many trails to enjoy. My favorite spot is the bubbling springs, no matter how hot the summer sun is the water is always ice cold and bubbling! They have an Ice cream/candy store on site, a church is located on the campground. There is a restaurant in the park. The third weekend of every month they have the trade days which is a huge sale of trades and other goodies. So many hidden treasures in this park! Be sure not to miss!
This campground is near to home so it's our most frequented camping spot. There is a nice little Creek that flows through for fishing. My family has caught small bass and bream and once a year in April they stock it with trout and hold a trout tournament. There is a natural spring called bubbling springs that all the kids love splashing in. It feeds right into the creek and often you find people swimming in the creek there. The creek snakes through park with walking trails alongside it so the walks are nice there. They have many trails that people ride bikes on as well. There is a museum to look at the historical aspects of the park. The old iron works still stands. All of the cabins are old site cabins that were brought in and you can rent those. My family from out of state have rented at least once a year for the last decade. If you look at the website for the park they list activities year round. All kinds of things for old and young alike. Tannehill will always hold a a special place due to the memories made with our family there!
I had another wonderful stay at Tannehill State Park but this time with family. This place is close enough to the interstate that it is very convenient yet so very secluded and peacful. The cabins are basic but efficent and hold historical values. Several activities such as the Museum, Frontier Farm and Minature ridable train will keep you engaged but the best is the trail system. The Mountain Bike trails are a blast and well maintained. Definately worth the trip for that alone as my previous trips have been for. I highly recomend this place regardless of your style of camping.
Beautiful park but check the dates to see what is going on before you go. You can rent a cabin or set up an RV or tent. It's a pretty busy campground so if you're looking for solitude I wouldn't suggest this one. It's great for families though. Kids riding bikes, tons of shade and a creek. There's a museum describing the old ironworks. There are activities ranging from outdoor movie nights to Trade Days where vendors sell their wares like an open flea market. They have nice trails for varying levels of hikers.
We arrived in to this campground very late. We were driving cross country and were directed to this campground by a local when we were searching for a nonexistent KOA. We arrived after hours and it wasn't clear how we do an after hours checkin. We drove around, selected a site and within minutes a ranger pulled up. He politely took our information and gave us a camp pass along with the bathroom code. We weren't parked too far from the cabins that used to be at the KOA that has since closed down. The site was plenty large enough to accommodate our two small tents. The site came complete with a fire ring and picnic table and a lovely stream at the back. It did rain on us, really hard but the sounds of the stream and rain fall, it was a lovely place to be. It had some really majestic looking walkways and the trees were spectacular. The bathhouse was clean and more then sufficient. Would be a great place to stop for a longer period of time.
