What an amazing campground! Alabama knocked this one out of the park. From the first time you enter the park, which isn’t too far from BHam or the interstate, you’re transported to a different place where things move much more slowly just the way we like it. The campground is a 5 mile ride from the main entrance. A beautiful winding road takes you all the way, deep into the property. If you’re lucky, you will see plenty of wildlife (we saw 7 deer and one rabbit). The campsites are very spacious, we stayed in site A30 which was great! But if you want a view, try A26 which overlooks the lake. There is a general store on property that even has propane. If you’re active, they offer bike and hiking trails, horse riding, kayak and paddle boat rentals, and a couple of beaches. Don’t wait, book your stay here ASAP!

Nice site with full hookups

Gunter Hill was a nice COE campground. We had site 32 in the Catoma Loop (only loop open - we stayed at the end of January for one night). The sites are level and had full hookups. Our site had a good view of the lake, but I’m not sure you’d have that view once trees and underbrush have full leaves. Only disappointments were we had a strong sewage smell around our site when we first got there - the smell went away so maybe it was just the direction of the wind (the bath house is across the road). And when we walked through our woods behind our site to look at the lake, we were saddened to see tons of trash in the woods - made the pretty view of the lake a lot less appealing. We would stay here again for a one night, but probably not for a long stay.

Remote, Affordable USFS campground with Cell service

Payne Lake East is primitive camping that costs $6 dollars a night.  From here you can access the amenities on the west shore.  We are here in mid February and all but one of the full hook up sites on the west side are occupied.  However, on the east side there is only one other camper. The lake is very pretty and has an area for swimming and a boat launch.  On the east side the water is shut off this time of year, but it is available at the dump station.   The east side offers a pit toilet, picnic tables and lantern post at each site.  Apparently there are alligators here, but they are seldom seen this time of year per the campground host.

One of the Best!

We really enjoyed our stay at Wind Creek. The lake is beautiful with plenty amenities. There are quite a few campsites on the lake, the rest still have lake views. Some slots are smaller than others, which is something you have to be cautious about when reserving your spot. Other than that, everything was amazing! Wind Creek is definitely a place we will return to in the near future and quite often! Check out the views from the Silo in the day use area! Amazing views of the lake!

Lakefront Serenity

This park has beautiful sites. We stayed in the premium waterfront (January 15th for 6 days, during offseason) and while there were quite a few other neighbors we felt like we had the place to ourselves. I’m sure the place is hopping during season. We kayaked, fished, hiked and the kids geocached, biked and scootered. Great cell service (my kids homeschool). The bath houses were extraordinarily clean and we saw them cleaning them at least once a day. The camp store was a little bare but had a great selection of live bait and tackle. Would definitely return again

Absolutely love this place!

Love this park, you really forget how close to Birmingham you are. Lot’s to do here, camping , biking, fishing, hiking . So worth a visit if you’ve never been here .

Big State Park

Well wort the little extra drive to get to the campground in the middle of the park. Beautiful sites. Some spread out some near each other but still lots of room. Park has lots of stuff to do or just relax in nature. Watch our video showing Oak Mountain Park. https://youtu.be/Kw3BTjl8io8

Peaceful & Beautiful

Gunter Hill is a gem of a campground! Sites are spacious, long, and paved with full hookups. We were on the lake in site 28. The bathrooms & showers are older but adequate. Wished we could have stayed more than one night.

Clean campground, pleasant check in

We only stayed one night. Large campground, broken into 3 areas. Lots of camp sites and cabins too. Campground was wooded, clean and had all the amenities you could need.

Hidden Gem

What else can you ask for, quiet and isolated. Restroom was nice and clean and camp host was available for any questions. Plenty of firewood to use around the property.
