Made our campground reservation online and it was confirmed via email. When we arrived we were told that we had been assigned another campsite due to a computer glitch. We were there specifically because of the site we had reserved (easy access to water so we could kayak). No one tried to call us ahead of time? We would have... More

Stayed at the cottages to attend a wedding. Each room had its own bathroom which was awesome. Kitchens have the minimum, would take extra items if I planned to stay for longer than a weekend. Despite the rainy weather we had a fun weekend.

This state park is a very nice place to sleep, eat, walk, boat, swim or just relax. The lake is huge, the views are peaceful and inviting and the atmosphere is friendly

My husband & I stayed 4 nights at the Lodge at Joe Wheeler State Park for our 28th wedding anniversary. It is Very well maintained for a state park. It was very nice. It has gorgeous views.

Easy to reserve and check in. RV sites are not crowed together and well maintained with plenty of shade. The golf course is a must for all golf abilities. There are cabins (more like modern homes with water views). This park offers much for couples to families

I have not been since I was little. They have kept this park much updated than any of the rest of the Alabama State Parks. The trails are nice and easily walkable. Enjoyed seeing the wildlife too. Cant wait to try the cottage sometime soon.

I'm so glad you were able to stop back by recently. We work very hard to keep the park updated, clean and safe for our guests. I definately recommend staying in one of our lake side cottages, but you will have to book in advance because they do stay booked pretty consistantly. We look forward to having you back soon! More

this is a good place to stay in the area, fishing, golf, food, hiking. and more. Lodge is a little old and could use some updating. shower heads about 5 1/2' so some of us have to stoop to get clean. kind of far from Florence but has everything you need. will return.

My husband and I spent an overnight here to check out the area for a nearby getaway. We stayed in the lodge on the north side of the lake that actually was on an arm of water rather than the lake proper. That was a bit disappointing in terms of a view but it was quiet and peaceful.
