  • This park is AWESOME! It far exceeds all expectations! Beautiful and clean campground full of friendly people! The waterfalls are worth the walk! Lots to see along the way!
  • Amazing place. So quiet and relaxed. My wife and I come a few times a year, usually in off season, and it’s wonderful, quiet and restorative. Love this place. Cabins and chalets are super clean and nice. Really great place.
  • We love Desoto State Park! Campsites are roomy. Bathhouses are clean. All sites have fire rings. Lots of areas to hike. Be sure to visit Little River Canyon, Desoto Falls, Orbix Hot Glass & Mentone while visiting!
  • The beauty of this park, the welcoming staff, the myriad of services, and the easy access contributed greatly to my decision to move to this area permanently. This is the most beautiful part of Alabama!
  • Beautiful state park. Super friendly staff at the camp store. Wide RV sights with full hookups. And the bathrooms were spotless.
