This is a wonderful park. Lots of trees and trails. The people very nice. Campsites are spread far apart. And they are pet friendly.

The campground is under renovation until spring/summer of 2024. One feature I didn’t see listed is the archery range. See the State Park description and website for the numerous activities available.

We love Oak Mountain State Park. The Park is renovating the campground, so it will be closed until completion in the spring/summer of 2024. Oak Mountain has all the outdoor activities you may want: camping, hiking, archery range, golf courses, demonstration farm, stables, kayaking, fishing, and more. Enjoy…

This was a fantastic find! We were driving through and stopped for the night on a Saturday. If you reserve in advance, they require 2 nights, but you can pull up for a single night if they have spots available.

They are dog friendly and our pup had fun swimming in the lake off the dock side (he wasn’t allowed to swim at the beach). Super quite, shady spots. Multiple public bathroom facilities around the sites. We had an RV hookup with water, electricity, and sewage for $45.

The only downfall was that we got a spot right under a street light. Otherwise, it was exactly what we were looking for!

The park was very well set up & maintained. The section of sites I was in weren't very spread apart but it was very comfortable.
The swimming area was great! I didn't get a chance to hike the trails or bike, would love to go back! Just an overnight stay for me as I was passing through.

This park is really beautiful. There are boat, canoe and kayak rentals. There is also a swimming area, a golf course, a restaurant and a store. They have trails for motorbikes, bikes, horses and hikers. Although my biggest warning is that the trailers really aren't for beginners, especially the one going to the falls. The trails aren't really maintained and are very steep. Overall I would go again but just with more food, water and BUG SPRAY!!
