Escape the hustle and bustle of Birmingham and camp out in the sweet home Alabama country! Oak Mountain Campground is nestled beside the recreation glory of Beaver Lake amidst rolling hills and majestic pines. Here you can live it up in your RV or get a bit closer to the elements in your tent. Your group will enjoy campfire games, roasting marshmallows, and maintaining an adequate beer and ice supply via the country store. If you’re looking for something a little more upscale the park offers fully equipped cabins to rent, located at the aptly named Lake Tranquility!

This is the largest state park in Al. Has tons of things to do. Miles of great paved roads. Giant raptor bird rescue Sanctuary.. Incredible beaches..kayak & canoe rentals..nature course with nice restaurant..miles to ride a bike ( entrance is 5 miles from campground) stables..archery.petting zoo.. And one of the few places in US that has special lake that can pull you with a cable on a paddle board. Be sure to visit The American Village near it (look it up) well worth it.

Staff is great! Highly recommended area A over area B, but you're still going to experience little privacy between sites. The park, in general, has a lot of activities to enjoy, but is a bit run down. It is, however, close to Birmingham and can make a good base for exploring the city and the park.
