We had a beautiful spacious and private site. Heavily wooded. Most sites are back-in. Not much space for pull-though with a long motorhome. Very friendly and helpful team. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park. Most of the sites would be no problem with our 40' motorhome but not all. WiFi was OK but not perfect but that didn't bother us. A loop would probably be better if you want 50amp but we stayed in C loop with 30 amp because we wanted a water front spot. Bathrooms in the C loop a old so in the mornings we opted to head over to the day use area where they seemed a bit better. Gets busy on the weekends but like most state parks GREAT on the weekdays!! We would come back. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed three nights. The bathhouse in loop A was not very clean and no one cleaned while we were there. Some of the pads (asphalt) are starting to buckle causing several of the sites to be unlevel. We have seen this park in better shape. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

The bathhouse (loop A) was very clean, the overall condition of the campground was very good. The only problem was short length of sites. We carry a boat and it requires a longer site (We do not like crowding the roads). The pull through sites are adequate, however there were only two back in sites that were forty feet. We enjoy Wheeler, it is cold this week (last week of October). The ranger and hosts are friendly and helpful. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed on Loop C, where there are several sites with a view of the lake. Most of the sites on this loop are roomier than the ones on Loops A & B. The bath house is dated but clean. Our site had plenty of trees and a beautiful view of the water. Wi-Fi was not always reliable but worked most of the time. The park has a lodge with a restaurant & marina about a mile from the campground. There is also a golf course & day use beach area very close by. If you are up early in the morning, you may see deer making their way down to the water. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first trip to Joe Wheeler. It's a nice place with paved, but narrow, roads and campsites. There was just enough room on the site pavement to park our camper with none left for chairs, etc. A rainy day would have been a muddy mess for us. Some campers had to park their boats along the sides of the access roads and that made it crowded getting through at times. The camp helpers for our area patrolled the park like security guards to the point that we became annoyed with their frequent inspections. In the morning as we were packing to leave they stopped by urging us to hurry up because there were others wanting our spot! We'll probably go back again in spite of the drawbacks though. Sure hope the "camp helpers" we had are gone by then! We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice and quiet. Plenty of room. Staff was very friendly. Free Wifi at the lodge. Nice golf course but temps were in the mid to high 90's this week. I would recommend this park to family & friends. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall, I would say this is a good park to visit. However, there wasn't a lot of room between sites for children to run around and play. There is plenty of shade and it is a very quiet park. All staff was extremely nice and very helpful. Bathhouses and restrooms were relatively clean but could use some maintenance. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice state park. There are a lot of trees and quite a few deer around. The only problem was it was hard to level the motorhome. We would stay here again. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

I really enjoyed my stay at Joe Wheeler State Park. The camp sites were well placed and far enough apart to have some privacy. The bath houses were spotless. The campground had lots of shade. Plenty of paved roads for people to ride bicycles on. I will definitely be back. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff here is wonderful - so helpful and nice. But the sites are small - we have a 30ft travel trailer and there were not many sites we could get in. Other than that, it was great. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Joe Wheeler was a beautiful park. We saw deer and turkey all through the park. The campsites are spacious and well separated. There are only a few (5 or 6) in camp loop C that have a view of the water. The weekend we were there it poured rain, and we still enjoyed it. The lodge restaurant was fair; the service was great. The people were very friendly. The bathhouses were the cleanest I have ever seen. Excellent park. Alabama does have a 11% tax on that $21 fee. Seniors get a discount.

Good location convenient to Florence, Decatur and Huntsville. Campground was clean and restrooms/showers were above average. Lots of kids riding bicycles and such. Good golf course also a part of state park. Lodge had fast Wi-Fi. Biggest negative was one of the campground hosts. Their site looked like a 3rd rate trailer park with all kinds of stuff piled around. Everyone else is required to keep their pets on a leash, but host let their big dog out every morning to run around the campground alone, take care of business, causing a lot of barking and problems for those of us trying to walk our dogs properly.

We had a wonderful time at this campground. The roads were paved and campsites were paved and fairly level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The camp hosts made frequent rounds and were also very friendly. We had lunch at the restaurant at the Lodge. The food was good and very reasonably priced. Some fellow campers had the seafood buffet on Saturday evening and felt it was overpriced with a limited selection. The showers and bathrooms were clean. The scenery was beautiful and we saw quite a few deer in the campground. We will definitely return. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed this campground. Absolutely beautiful. They have just finished adding some new cottages, that are beautiful. One drawback is you have to hunt for a space that has both a sewer hook up and grill too. A lot of the sites don't have grills, so if your'e heading out check carefully. Bathrooms are very well maintained. Plenty of wildlife to view while you are there. Would recommend this to anyone. Plenty of attractions in the area to see too. One of our favorite places!
