Beautiful park.Rained the two days we were here but we will come back. Some sites are clustered together in odd ways in loop A not allowing for much privacy unless you are with a group. Would avoid them. 11-12-13 are all very close. 12 and 13 were plently large for our 37' 5th wheel but in the future would take spots 24 or 25 if you want full hook ups with more privacy. Loop B is more open with pull throughs but the sites seemed far more crowded. Good Verizon signal here as well. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This 10,000 acre state park is awesome. It has a lake, trails for hiking, bikes and horses, there is an archery range, campsites for RVs, trailers and tents. They even have a campsite for camping with your horse. And everything was very clean. We had plenty of space between us the and the neighbors. It was very quiet at night. Many of the RV sites have a separate area for a tent and fire ring. The property is thickly wooded with lots of shade. We stayed three nights in site #24 and it was nearly level. We will be back! We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park has amazing views and lots of trails. We only spent one night at this campground but will definitely be back to see more of this park. We were able to get a campsite without a reservation and got our choice of either full hook up or electric and water hook up only. Both options had pull thru sites. The camp site was level side to side, but not front to back. But that is an easy fix with my electric hitch lift. We did have to unhitch our truck from the trailer as the hook ups for W&S&E required us to pull the trailer all the way to the front of the campsite. there was more than enough room to park the truck behind our trailer. The camp site has picnic table and fire pit and a nice grassy area between campsites. The restrooms were very dated and need to be upgraded. The Laundry facility in loop B of the campsite is CLOSED. I do not know if the laundry facilities in the other loops were working as we did not need to do laundry. The cell service is weak. We only had 1 to 2 bars for both Verizon and ATT. The road leading to the campsite is windy and steep but had no problem getting thru. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice and large park with endless options of things to do. We took B-19, a very nice end drive-thru that was mostly level and ample room for our road. The park was not full so we had plenty of room. It's just sad to drive miles into the park and then find all the campsites crammed together in one area. It's good for visiting Birmingham but quite a long drive in and out each time. We didn't use the shower or bath facilities. W/E is cheaper than FHU and age 62+ ask for the senior discount. Fri melt staff at the gate and camp store. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a large state park with many facilities like golf, archery, BMX, horse stables. Wish we had more time to explore! Used Oak Mountain as an overnite stop, and it was a welcome relief to spend the night in a secluded forest. Highly recommend as a good alternative to chain campgrounds. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We love staying at state parks and this is a typical park built long ago before today's modern rv's. Sites were laid out oddly and not level. We picked up an ant infestation in the rv and dealt with it for a week. Trails are great as is the overall scenery. We'll come back to hike but not to camp. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

I've been to Oak Mountain 5 times over the years. Each time I tell myself I won't be back. But, it is on the way to my destination. Well, no more. Old campground in need of much work. This state park campground was laid out badly from the beginning. Sites are short and unlevel. Crowded. Dirty uncleaned restrooms/showers on a Thursday mid day. And the price--you gotta be kidding. I will say if you want to bike/hike/ride horses/play golf...this is for you. just don't stay at the campground. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice property, and most campsites good spacing and layout except for #48 which put our outside use area right on top of another camper negating all privacy and desire to spend time at our picnic table. Beach and lake were lovely! We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

. Water and electric only in the majority of Section B, Full hook-ups in Section A. We stayed in Section B. The sites are tight together and out in the open. Easy to back our rig into. But my 3 biggest complaints were that the site and fire rig were right up and next to the roads through the campground. There are 3 bathrooms in the section but there is only 1 shower in each and these showers also are for the numerous tenting sites, not really enough. But my biggest complaint was the dogs. Now we travel with 2 dogs and have stayed in parks with almost everyone had dogs but we have never heard so much barking and saw so much bad behavior as we did in Oak Mountain. There were dogs just constantly barking or trying to go after other dogs as people walked by. It was just rude and un-pleasant. We would not stay again. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great experience. Plenty of space between spots. Many spots have shade and concrete pads. We noticed spots that pull through and also sites beside them that back in. That would be perfect for people camping together so they could have their doors, tables and awnings facing each other. There are mountain bike trails, equestrian trails, bmx trails, archery, golf, fishing, boating and more. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Make sure to visit the wildlife rescue center. No cost. Numerous small injured wildlife and birds being cared for. Also an elevated wooden walking trail with large cages of birds that are too injured to be released. Staff checks them daily.

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. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
