Great park. Nicely maintained, friendly staff, spacious and spread out sites. We stayed in walk-in 19. It's a half mile from parking and the comfort building, and the trail is covered in tree routes, so wheeled items (coolers, wagons) may not do very well. But what a great place to get outside! No bugs in October. Did see some armadillos!
Once settled, go hike! The West Rim trail is manageable. Be careful with dogs, as parts of the trail have grated stairs, and dog feet don't do well on the grates.
But the view are spectacular.
With more time, we would have done the waterfalls trails as well.
In all, excellent place. Will certainly go back.
Stayed here in mid July with family and had a great time! Sites are spread out and the campground is very large. Bathhouses are conveniently located and clean. Sites are level and most are back in. Dump station and trash drop off at exit of campground. Large store with everything you’d need at entrance which also offers a canopy tree rope course thing wayyyy up in the trees. Other than that, not too much to do at the campground, mainly just a hub for going to the state park and falls. Some trails are on site and were nice to explore, however. Would definitely come back to this campground.
Beautifully kept campground. Tons of room to walk and play. Great swimming and fishing. Boating is huge here Bc there are docks all around the campground to pull up to. Playgrounds everywhere. Nice, new bathhouse on the island at the back of campground. Affordable place to stay a few nights. Believe it’s 21 for water and electric RV sites. Dump stations throughout park. I use the BIG one at the entrance/exit of park, nobody ever there 👌🏻. Rangers patrol this place every 30 minutes at least. Very safe place. Try and grab a spot that I marked on the map, you’ll have tons of shade and close access to all the good stuff!
We live in Madison, AL and love driving out to Cathedral Caverns to camp on the weekends. It has a smaller but decent primitive campground. A quick drive down the gravel road and you're at the RV park with bathrooms. There are also two backcountry sites if you want to hike a mile or so. It's never too crowded and always clean! WARNING: Very spotty cellphone service, which is actually nice if you want to enjoy the outdoors!
Overall good place to visit. Some sites are squeezed too close together but there are great sites scattered all throughout the park. It’s a large park with 4 camp loops, hiking is good with the main waterfall worth the walk into the canyon. The park seems well maintained and clean, bath houses were clean and had spacious showers. Only reason I didn’t give a 5 star review is with luck of the draw your site may be a little crowded.
Tranquility campgrounds and one of the nicest private parks in Alabama. The staff was super friendly, the rates good, and the grounds were clean and well maintained. There is a nice little pond to fish and a few little trails around the park. You can easily get to Desoto falls by foot (.85 mile) with spectacular views. Also this park is just minutes from downtown Mentone and super close to Desoto State Park. It was not too crowded when we went so it was nice and on Monday we felt we almost had the place to ourselves. Each pimative site had water and electricity, so that was nice. The bath houses are also very nice. The sites can be a little closer together so be careful in peak season. I would recommend this place over and over.
We stayed for 4 nights in walk in site 21. It was bit interesting to get all our stuff to the site, and thank goodness we had 2 wagons and teens to help carry. It was a great private site, allowing for a good size tent and 3 hammocks. Easy access to the West Rim trail which was a terrific hike. Waterfalls were dry, which was disappointing but the hike to them from the West Rim Trail was quite pretty.
Note that the Visitor Center had no wood left, having arrived on a Sunday. We saw a sign for wood delivery and called Mac. He was very accommodating, delivered wood within a couple of hours to us in the parking lot. A great price! Call Mac at 423-596-4805.
All in all we had a great experience.
