My husband and I love spending time at Joe Wheeler State Park. We have a long history there, when we were in high school our Prom's were held there. It is beautiful any time of the year, but especially so in the fall. There are hiking trails, beautiful places to picnic, a beach area and if you are staying at... More

We decided to take a ride down the road to Wheeler State Park yesterday. The first thing we saw when we turned in the drive was a fawn. Walked on a trail and saw a lot of squirrels, chipmunks, and wood peckers. The leaves are turning, it is truly a peaceful place to get in touch with nature again.

We are proud to be notorious for our wildlife at Joe Wheeler State Park. I would almost promise every time you come into the park, you will see a deer. I'm glad that you had the opportunity to enjoy the Fall foliage while visiting. This is my favorite time of year in the park! More

Attended a conference there and ate at restaurant. Can not comment on rooms. Facilities were very nice and staff most helpful. Lots of room to conduct your business with a beautiful and well cared for marina.

We stayed here in the middle of October in a pop-up. Each site has a sewer hookup, so it's nice not having to dump a grey water tank. Sites are all pretty wooded. That works nicely to block the sun and the wind, but in the summer, I imagine it's stuffy. The length of 4 loops run perpendicular to the... More

This is a beautiful clean park. We went for the British Car Show and then just enjoyed the day at the park. Make sure you go over the dam and check out the old cabins while you are there. We will definitely be back to stay in one of the lakeside cottages!

The manager (Mandy) immediately handled the situation and made things very right by us. We had dinner both Saturday and Sunday night along with breakfast Sunday and Monday morning. Sweet and professional Mandy kept tabs on... More

My husband & I love it here! First visit won't be our last. Campground is very clean. Thanks so much to State of Alabama's employees for doing such a great job in the upkeep of the park as well as the amenities provided. Camp sites are spacious...lots of beautiful trees...had no problems with the space available for slide-outs. Another plus... More
