High quality campsite

Very well maintained campsites. Stayed in upper improved site 12 which was close to the facilities and has direct access to the trails.

Unfortunately, it was super foggy and wet the entire time we were there. But it doesn’t change the quality of the campground.

Beware, it is a solid 30 minute drive off of the highway. Also, they have a well stocked little shop but wood is expensive up there at $10/bundle (and there are no other options because you are in the middle of nowhere).

We are hoping to go back when it is clear!!

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.

Small car camping site

This is a cute car camping site that we have stayed at several times. It provides great access to hiking in Cheaha and is perfect as a home base for adventures in the area. It was actually closed for COVID when we were there but I believe that it is now reopened. I would definitely check online to make sure it is open before planning to camp here. I would definitely suggest this site over the main Cheaha campgrounds since it is more private and primitive which I prefer. Not a great site for RVs though.

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.

Well maintained shelter

This is a review for the backpacking shelter located along the Pinhoti trail in Weogufka State Forest. This is the closest camping site to the Southern Terminus of the trail and is a great overnight option. The shelter is has a platform that goes around 3 walls on the inside which is enough space for about 3 people to stay comfortably. It is also very well maintained and has a logbook. Additionally, another nice feature of this site is the picnic bench and large firepit situated out in front of the shelter. There is also incredibly easy water access since the shelter sits alongside the creek. When we were here recently there had just been a hurricane that came through a couple of days earlier and there were a ton of trees down. But it seems like there was already maintenance in process to clear the area out. Just be aware that this made it hard to find the trail at points so come prepared with a map. Check out my video review below to get a better look inside the shelter.

Words cannot explain

Grand Opening June 2021 selling out fast! Will be open for April 2021 Talladega Race Week!

Huge!

Huge campground and the sites are fairly close and crowed for a state park. Beautiful location. Waterfront sites have a week minimum but if any are available at check in time you can upgrade.

Beautiful

I researched the best time to come to see the leaves turning. We were not disappointed. The mountain views have been breathtaking. The campgrounds are awesome too. The sites are nice sized with plenty of space space between. This one will be a repeat for sure.

Pretty neat place

I say this because we got here 1 November and it was half full. This is a very LARGE campground, it would be very busy if it were packed. The gate coming in is very very tight, and easy to miss. The only sign directs to the park (not the campground), follow. Our neighbor waited months to get a water front spot, we booked the day before. Absolutely beautiful, great water front spots if you want to pay the price (with discount and fees, waterfront ended up $60 a night). Very family friendly and lots to do when everything is open. Def worth checking out!
