Tannehill is an interesting state park built on the site of old ironworks. (Alabama is famous for iron-making, like Bethlehem PA or other old steel-making towns.) There are some historical ruins, a museum, some rebuilt cottages (now used for crafts sales and special events), etc. The property itself is spread out and there are lots of trees and a nice stream. Many places to walk, hike, walk your dog. You choose your own campsite after paying. A very pleasant and enjoyable campground overall.
Two comments: One, they do not take reservations. (This must be a nightmare for families arriving at the end of a long day. We were there in April and there were plenty of sites.) Two, some of the sites along the stream have electric wires that hang down so low that our medium-height RV barely cleared them. We never noticed the wires, in fact, until we were leaving and realized that if our RV were one foot higher we would have pulled down a bunch of live wiring. Careful! - virginianola
This is a State park. It is really a nice place to stop for a night. Staff is helpful and friendly. We only had water and electric but the site was large enough to stay hooked up and had plenty of room. There is no TV reception to speak of and our site was not good for our sat dish. As mentioned before it is a state park so there are lots of trees which makes it somewhat big rig unfriendly. We have a 36 ft RV so we took it real slow. - usa rv12344848
We were very surprised how nice this park was. There is a lot to do, many historical buildings, lots of trails and beautiful scenery, even a miniature train to ride in the summer. Water, sewer, and electric sites. The only ding is that the camping sites are very close together but the park makes up for this. Will definitely stay here again. - Crazyrvfamily
