3 Parks near Pelham, Alabama
May 2016 - $40.00
I had originally planned to use the park for an overnight stay, but a main engine starter failure upon arrival on a Friday night meant I was there until the following Monday to get another unit from the Birmingham supplier. The park didn't have a problem with the issue and repairs were completed ASAP. Nice staff, accommodated my repair issue with no drama encountered. Somewhat tight access for a 40'+ motorhome, but not bad and water/power was not an issue. The park is in Pelham, which is on the south side of Birmingham and is wooded, hilly and has some of the nicest/smiling people you would want to meet. These people appear to like where they live and what they do, because they are about as happy as they could be. A definite return recommendation. - wolffden

The park is conveniently located, is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.
The overnight site we had was very close to the sites on either side. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay. - larryo

The RV park we planned stay at was filled by the time we called ahead (before noon). We therefore used an old Woodall's directory to choose this one while en route. We did not have an opportunity to read RV Park Reviews ahead of time and agree with the generally low reviews this park received. Sites varied from smaller shaded back-ins to longer shaded or unshaded pull -throughs that could accommodate larger RVs. The noise from I-65 diminished at night. But train horns could be clearly heard at night about every 90 minutes. The WiFi was very weak and mostly useless. Our site was grass/weeds/dirt, but level and long enough to not have to unhook our toad. The site included an old concrete patio with a picnic table. The nightly rate for a 50 amp pull-through with a Good Sam discount was overpriced. - BobatRetama

This is an Alabama State Park campground located 10-12 miles south of Birmingham. Convenient to shopping and restaurants from either the south or north park entrance. We spent 3 nights on the A side of the campground. Nice, tranquil setting. We were assigned a "pull along" site for our motorhome and toad. I wanted to get a site where trees would not block my roof mounted satellite and they gave me a site that worked well, however, the pad had deep tracks of broken asphalt. Full hookups with 30 amp electric service. Site A22. Paid $31.63 per night with taxes and fees. - Coopsecondact

Nice state park. Some sites are small for big rigs, but most will accommodate them. Sites are level and paved with asphalt. Sewer connections and electrical good location. Some sites do not have sewer. Most on the A side do. The B side looks like that sites are close and not all have sewer. Lots of trees and shade. During stay severe weather was expected. Rangers and staff came to every campsite with information about shelters, radio and TV stations to use for updated weather reports. They were very concerned about guest safety. We will stay again. - bowl2764

Average, older State Park. All except a few sites on the B side are pretty bad - too closely spaced and unlevel. The A side is better spacing, but still a little tight. Some sites on the A side are really unlevel front to back. Pull through sites are short. Watch out for "backward sites", there are quite a few.
This CG looks like it is a formerly "all tent" CG, and they ran utilities to some of the parking spaces for the tent sites. Typically, the RV parking space is narrow, and the "sitting area" for the associated RV site is separated from the RV. Sometimes as much as 100 feet. And, some of the tent sites that could not be converted are still there. So, it makes for a strange layout, because the tent sites are scattered among, and between, the RV sites.
The bathrooms are functional but small, in need of updating, but relatively clean.
Most sites in the A area are full hookup, but only 30 amp power. Water pressure was 40 psi, Verizon coverage = 3/5 bars, satellite availability is varied because of a heavy tree coverage. Good local TV stations.
Excellent large park with lots to do for the kids - beach, hiking/bike trails, BMX track, fishing, etc. Also, tons of shopping within close driving range of the park.
I will not stay at Oak Mountain again unless I need close access to Birmingham, and then, only if I can get a decent site on the A side. - Bama Camper

Stayed here one night and will not stay again unless there are huge improvements in the area for 50 amp campers. We were put next to the horse stables and there were no facilities, horse manure was all over the area and the sites were gravel and dirt and was hard to get to due to the roads. Was not worth the price! Did not visit the rest of the park because it was approximately six miles from where we were located. Should have availability for 50 amp campers in the other section of the park. This park does not have my vote! - Larry_Jane2015
