    I really enjoyed camping here at Fort Mountain State Park. This was my first time camping in a state park and didn’t know what to expect. I will say make sure you bring a tarp or two for your tents because you will be on gravel not grass. Can’t say I like that very much because there was a sharp rock that went through my tarp and tent, however I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the restrooms. I went on the Fourth of July weekend and the weather was perfect. Being up in the mountains kept us from being overly hot. Although bring a sweater and heavy blankets for night time. The beach was fine but was a bit over crowed. I’m guessing because we went on a holiday weekend. I loved the fact that the security came through very often making me feel safe. There are definitely bears here so when they tell you to put your things up after use, they mean it. This will include any fishing bait, which we had not and learned our lesson quickly. I also loved the extra features like paddle boating and mini golf. We camped on the side with the electricity and water spouts, which I loved. This was one of the best camping experiences for my family and friends….minus the bear tearing my gazebo screen. On another note, if you happen to be camping by, come say hello and maybe stay with us on our traditional movies Under the stars night held Saturday. Lots of fellowship and laughter.,,Just be sure to pick up all trash. I dont like bears. lol

    Such a wonderful place to visit. The history is neat (even though they don’t know everything about the fort itself). The trails are kept up well and easy to hike. Make sure to check out the overlook as it has a wonderful view!

    We have visited many state parks in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida and this one is by far the best. We were tent camping. The bathrooms, including showers, were spacious and clean to the likes of what I’ve never seen in a state park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We went on a hike to the mysterious “fort” and Ranger Rich was very knowledgeable both about wildlife and local history; it was very interesting. My girls enjoyed a game of minigolf. The last day, we packed up, got in the car, and it wouldn’t start – needed a jump. There was a ranger there within 15 minutes that gave us a jump start – better than Triple A!Thank you Fort Mountain staff!

    Friendly, fun state park. We saw black bears every day, the first we’ve seen. Campsites and bath rooms were very clean and the staff friendly. Also the hikes, minigolf and paddleboats are all good fun! We’ll definitely be coming back.
