1 Park near Mccalla, Alabama
Mar 2016 - $25.00
Tannehill is my absolute favorite place to camp. Even though the price is $25 for 4 people, they didn't charge for my 2-year-old grandson. That's how you treat guest and they will return. The park is shady and safe for children to ride their bikes and play all day. The staff is super friendly. The bath/wash houses are clean and require a code but that is okay because you can access them any time, not like some campgrounds that only open from 8-10. There is even a tub for handicap access or for washing smaller children who have managed to get filthy from all the fun. The water is good for swimming, fishing (I caught my first rainbow trout!) or kayaking. If you have never been you must visit and book ahead for a Trade Day weekend! - AnnW

Very interesting state park. Full of history. Set in old iron foundry. Not hard to find. Recommend to anyone. - tbax46

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
