Thank you for taking the time to share about Joe Wheeler State Park. You are correct, the wifi is currently unreliable, however the staff and facilities are top notch! Bare with us as we work to improve the wifi accessability within the park.

The pool is available to Lodge, Lakeside Cottage, Cabin guests and Boat Slip Holders. Unfortunately, campground guests are not permitted to the pool, but do have access to the sandy beach area located in the day use area.
