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 .

Activities~ GREAT Sites~ NOT so great

Sites~ most are SMALL and right next to your neighbor. Some have more space but all in all its tight. Driving into the campground and finding your site is TIGHT as well.

Bathhouse~ it's okay. Clean and well maintained. 3 stalls with a double curtain but no shower stall doors.

Activities~ It's why we keep going back! The hiking is great and there is always something new to see. If it's hot you can play in the river. After Thanksgiving the gardens next door have a fabulous Christmas light display.

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.

Big Wills Creek campground and tubing

Ok so things might have changed since my stay. But as it was when I stayed which was July 11th it was a free for all when it came to getting a site. They give you a sight number but your not guaranteed that spot as I found out when arriving to see someone else in my spot looking at me all stupid lol… I was a bit aggravated by this but you can apparently choose any open sight if there is one. The other problem was people who tube there parking in the camping site's so you didn't have access to the site's.That has been changed because I went back to tube and they posted signs stating campers only no tubers park in camping area. The tubing is fun and the powered camp sites are limited but are right next to the water which is nice. They have showers but are located at the entrance of the campground so you have to drive to them. Also bring your own tube as they do not rent them currently due to covid and are expensive there if you buy from them. Went to dollar general not far from there and got some for 5 dollars. As far as the tubing you can tube until you get tired of it your not limited to how many times you can tube and they pick you up and take you back to the launch area and appreciate tips. They do have bathrooms close to camp area and a playground for kids and other activities for adults like cornhole and a huge outdoor pool table. They also have a laundry mat and a store with supplies.So overall the price is good and a great place to visit, camp, and tube.

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.

Very Remote

A very remote location with trash cans and vault toilets. Crashed for a night and was very nice. The road in is long and pretty bumpy so be prepared for that. Would definitely stay again. Glad it hadn’t rained before because I could see how other people said it floods.

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.
