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.
