One of my favorites

Probably one of the best kept secrets. Very clean and peaceful. Great get away location.

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. Two to Three bars of Verizon 4G LTE

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

Peaceful Time Away

This campground has zero cell service, so if you can’t do without that read no further. We had a lovely stay here other than that. We enjoyed being waterfront at site #5, but there are 8 total lots on the water and then more sites that are in the wooded area. Lots 4, 5, and 6 seem to be the better ones and if your camping with friends or family 7 and 8 would be a great choice, since they are very close to each other at the end. This campground is pretty much equal distance between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. We enjoyed our stay. It’s a four star only because of cell service. My mom fell while we were there and my children couldn’t get in touch with us.🥲

Secluded

If you plan on having service - I don’t think any phone service is available there. Nice and secluded. It was the first park I’ve been to that the playgrounds are still closed and that was one of the main reasons we went. Very quiet. Sites 1-8 are right on river. Would be 5 stars except we really didn’t have much to do without play grounds with 4 kids so left a day early.

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.
