Awesome State Park and Campground

There is so much to do and see here at the park.  For your stay, there is camping, cabins, chalets, and a lodge for accommodations.  There is mountain biking and hiking trails, along with a lake to swim, fish and paddle in; and a pool if you are a overnight visitor.  There is a camp store onsite along with various museums and buildings built by the CCC.  The staff hosted several educational activities and were extremely helpful and informative.  We will definitely be back - actually already plotting with our friends we went with. 

PROs: secluded park but with a lot of outdoor options within the park, Talladega Forrest and Pinhoti Trail.  Many accommodation options.  Great mountain biking, a dog run, playground, events center, etc.  A lot of historical buildings and nature activities.  Breathtaking views, quiet, peaceful, etc...  

CONs: some of the campground sites are right under street lights (these are pointed out on the campground maps) and a few of the pull-though sites have the road in front of your camper (as opposed to behind) leaving no room to use your awning; the picnic table and fire ring are behind/beside your camper.  No cell reception at lower campground (and spotty in general, but in all honesty this is more a PRO unless you have work or other obligations).
