Oak Mountain State Park CampingOak Mountain State Park is located in Pelham, AL which is about an hour from us. It is a beautiful park with lots of activities, but we usually go for the camping or swimming. Here's a little excerpt from the park's website:
The day-use activities at Oak Mountain State Park set it apart from the rest. With over 50 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails set in a picturesque 9,940-acre park, there is something for all outdoor enthusiasts to appreciate and enjoy. The park's day-use picnic facilities include large picnic pavilions and picnic tables with grills, two fishing lakes on the north end of the park (Fishing Center) and in the Main Day-Use one recreational lake with pedal boat and canoe rentals, a sandy beach swimming area, a large open playing field, ample shoreline for bank fisherman and a boat launch for your personal boat (no gas operated motors, but electric trolling motors invited). We also offer a 18 hole golf course with pro shop & driving range, mountain bike trails, demonstration farm, and rental horseback riding facilities. If you want to stay longer than a day, the park offers cabins and camping facilities. With the largest area and variety of outdoor recreational pursuits, Oak Mountain is sure to provide excitement for every member of the family!
Oak Mountain is the very first campground we went to after buying our camper. We knew nothing about camping so we used this is a learning experience. Who would have known we would become so knowledgeable in such a short amount of time? And we never imagined that our RVRoadTrip.us site would become so popular! Even though we aren't camping anymore, the site still gets over 40,000 views a month.
We love to take the grandkids camping with us and Gracie was with us on this trip. She loves camping with us and is a big help with gathering firewood. Below are the pictures we took during our first ever camping trip. It was winter time so there is no greenery anywhere other than pine trees. We will add to this photo album when we visit the park again...
We visited here in 03/2009.
