The main attraction in this state park is the spring fed pool. There is a lot of nice grassy areas plus a playground but everyone was in the water. I tried it but found it too cold even though August in Alabama is very hot. Campground seemed a little cramped but acceptable. Bugs became a real issue as the sun began to set. Come armed with repellant.

Woodsy and quiet

Well-kept grounds and friendly staff. My campsite was near the bathroom/shower which was convenient.  Enjoyed the hillside view I had and the walks in the woods surrounding the campground. My dogs took me for several long walks while we were here. Pull-thru site had a set of steps leading from the parking pad to the 'patio'. Very neat!

Peaceful stopover - looked like mostly fishermen camping around me.

I thought I was lost I had traveled so far off the beaten path. Suddenly I see a sign! Whew! Surrounded by water this campground was not very full in November. On a tiny island there appeared to be thousands of birds roosting in the evening. In the morning it was interesting to watch them taking flight.

Beautiful cool weather camping

Camped here in December and it was very quiet. I prefer cool weather for camping here in the South, as I'd rather huddle under a blanket by a fire than sit inside in AC when the temp reaches 90 degrees plus. Lots of pretty foliage remaining on the trees and birds were active.

Boaters Paradise

Nicely maintained campsite was quiet during the week but it sounds like they get pretty busy on the weekends. Since the park is surrounded by water there were several boats and some people fishing off the land. The area I was in was raised a few feet off the water. There is also a swimming area with a huge sand beach. Be warned the sand is extremely hot midday. Even with thick rubber sandals my feet got too hot.
