    If you're in the mood to test your nerves of steel, journey to the "Chimney Rock" area of Lake Martin. This is one of the hidden gems of the lake. After you test your nerves of steel, take a relaxing visit to Wind Creek State Park's North Picnic Area and enjoy some swimming and fishing on beautiful Lake Martin. After a full day at Wind Creek State Park and Lake Martin, take advantage of the park's only dairy creem, Creem @ The Creek for great food and beverages.

Campsites include 102-30 amp waterfront campsites, 18-30 amp sewer waterfront campsites, 211-30 amp sewer campsites, 216-30 amp base campsites.

    Dadeville, Alabama

    21 acres of raw untouched primitive camping land next to beautiful Lake Martin, Alabama. Campsites are far apart from each other so you can enjoy your privacy.

    The property is completely untouched for a true nature experience. If you're looking for a place with modern life amenities this campground is definitely not for you. Each campsite is 1 acre apart so you have a lot of privacy. Bring your binoculars or telescopes to enjoy a beautiful stargazing experience.

    Campers are required to park and walk to their campsites so there's no cars inside the reserve. Everything you bring in, you are required to take with you.

    A 55 gallon tank of fresh water is provided to each site for your convenience. There is no electricity so bring your flashlights and solar power banks if you need to power your devices.

    We are only 3 minutes to the Pace's Point Boat Ramp in case you bring your canoe, kayak or just want to go for a swim.

    There's a porta potty on site for your convenience.

    This is a very private campground with limited availability. Contact us to book your experience in advance so we can make sure we're available.

    Thank you for visiting us.

    Be blessed.
