It could be better .

Nice quiet campground on Bear creek.

This is a nice clean and quiet campground. It offers both RV and primitive camping. The campground is right on the water. The staff is friendly. They offer activities on the weekends for the kids when weather permits.

Small park, but well kept

Made a weekend trip to Rickwood Caverns and it was nice. There’s not much going on other than the cavern tour which is pretty good. It’s about an hour and a half start to finish with a fair amount of walking. They give a small discount to campers but it was still $47 for a family of 4 (12 and up…

We loved out spot here. The campground was very quiet. Both camp hosts were extremely nice and helpful. There are beautiful views overlooking the lake and lots of hiking trails and waterfalls. We had dinner nearby at Lakeshore Inn. We liked the food, servers were friendly and outside dining…

Nice National Forest Campground

I arrived without a reservation trying to get one of the first come first serve spots. There is a gate without intercom, so you can’t just drive up. I called the phone number listed and the woman on the phone gave me the gate code and told me which sites were available. Worked out pretty well.…

Nice area for RV camping and boating

I went here for tent camping and had a nice time but it was mostly families with RVs. There is a nice lake where a lot of people were boating as well. I did the firefly loop and I was the only tent camper everyone else was in an RV. Restrooms at the campground were closed due to covid. Also they…

Really neat

Great state park. RV sites are close together but the amenities are awesome. Great shower and bathroom plus a big pool with water from the caves! Great stop. Took the cave tour which was awesome as well.

Not for tents

We stayed here for two nights to kayak the Sipsey River nearby. The location is great. I don’t know about the other spots but the Yellow Hammer loop is not meant for tents. We were told by the host we could not pitch a tent on the grass so we had to pitch a tent on a gravel/concrete slab. There is…

Beautiful and Quiet

I couldn’t believe how quiet and beautiful the park was. We were surrounded by the biggest trees I had ever seen in person. Hiking to the falls was the best activity for our family. We are planning on returning!

The rv sites are huge, and well spaced out. The camp hosts were nice and helpful.

Not a bad place to go for the weekend!

This campground is a nice quiet campground. They have about 90 spots for you to camp which includes primitive spots. The campground is very shaded with tall pine trees, for most of the day depending on what site you are on. Most sites have very nice views of the water also. Most sites a spacious…

Immediately off I-65 / Great overnight / Friendly / Attentive

We will return!  I think this will be our go-to for the northern springtime journey.  Covid was hurting them this year - park was less than a 1/3 full.  The intersection is quite confusing so call them and they will tell exactly what to do - in and out.  Prices were more than fair, power was good…

SiteThe are mostly level and all good if you fit. Good to 55'+ overall.

Beautiful quiet sites

We have camped here twice and love it.  The sites are large and wooded.  There are walking trails and lake overlooks.  Boat launch and swimming beach are available on Smith Lake.  Most sites have full hookups and 30/50 Amp service.  Only problem was Verizon phone service was not good.  During the…
