  • The staff there are amazing. They lack the bigotry that provides much of the surrounding area. This place is truly a safe haven for families and not just Rich families but poor and mixed families as well. They are definitely a benefit to the community. The trails are well maintained in accordance to a nature explorers dream. They also participate in geocaching this is an amazing thing for families to explore nature. They do their absolute best to put on programs to help spark of Desire in the heart of future nature lovers. These people do amazing things with very little money but you could never tell they have very little money
  • We were at DeSoto this past week. This is one of our favorite parks. It is well-maintained. We were in a fifth-wheel. Some of the sites are very sloped, so it would be worth your time to research for a shady, level site. The roads and sites are paved with full hook-ups. We enjoyed the presentations at the park on Friday and Saturday nights. Just a short ride takes you into Mentone or Ft. Payne. The waterfalls were dry on this trip, due to lack of rain.
  • Amazing! drove from Atlanta to Alabama to check out this and a few other places out. Its beautiful out there. The waterfalls and valleys are amazing.
  • This place is my favorite place to camp. Very nice lots and bath house
  • Chalet was very dirty,, had spider and Cobb webs everywhere. But most of all we were woke up around 3 in the morning with a BAT FLYING AROUND IN IT!!! It was barely missing the top of my head ! I suffer from panic attacks but had been free of them for a long time BUT NOT ANY MORE!! This was my worse nightmare and I WILL NEVER STAY IN DESOTA STATE PARK AGAIN!! Our BFF week was totally ruined and I would. NOT recommend staying inside the park.
