  • This little park has grown so much. A great place for children to play in the water. Our daughter had her wedding here and it was lovely tons of things to photograph bring your swim suit 
  • What kind of bird was making the ahhww sound at night not a crow or owl or pileated woodpecker. Just curious great place loved it.
  • Recently stayed here. It was a horrible experience! The campground has locked gates, which is a real inconvenience!!! They are only open from 9-5. Whoever heard of locking a gate while it is still daylight, let alone locking it at all. Many of the campsites did not have fire rings, which could be a fire hazard. They had rowboats and paddleboats to rent but without someone in the office, how could you rent one. When we were able to catch someone in the office and mentioned some of this, she became rude and defensive. Someone told us this park was run by a Christian organization. We expected more kindness and understanding from a Christian. Someone needs to look into this park. While there other campers shared their 'misfortunes' with us. Such a shame. It is giving Alabama a bad name as far as campgrounds.
  • We payed for 5 nights on the 3rd day it started to have horrible weather the tent started to take water. We go to drive to the office there is a tree down in front of the bridge so we are stuck. I call the camp office and they try to charge us 20 dollars to stay in a cabin just until morning and we will check out so we have 2 days were not staying we payed for 5 nights stayed 3 why can't we stay in a cabin for 1 night we offered 35 dollars also might be run by a Christian organization but they are assholes.
  • Took our youth group back in August 2012. Every one had great time. Fees were adequate for a state park. Will go again.
  • it can be messy but it is a go place to go
