BACKPACKING/GROUP CAMPING INFORMATION
There are several designated backcountry sites for backpacking that are conspicuously located throughout the park, which offer a view of the varying topography and habitats that are found in the region.  These sites with our 50 plus miles of trails offer an assortment of loops that novice and experienced backcountry campers utilize for a quick get-a-away or preparing for a future hike. Leave-No-Trace ethics are expected of our campers. Usage of open fires is not permitted in the backcountry, but camp stoves for cooking purposes are allowed. You must register for the backcountry sites at the country store no later than an hour before sunset.  Parking for the backcountry sites can be found at the north trail head parking lot and near the group camp road gate.  These are the only two designated parking areas for backcountry sites.  Additionally, we offer a group camp facility for Girl Scout, Boy Scout, and Church Groups activities only.

 

SECURITY
Oak Mountain State Park has a friendly and courteous staff, which strives to make you feel at home during your stay. Also as a family oriented campground, our Law Enforcement Rangers and security personnel make regular patrols to ensure the safety of our guests. The park closes one hour before sunset and the entrance gate is manned 24 hours a day to provide for the guests’ security. Only registered guests are allowed into the park during these hours, for emergencies call 205-620-2520.

  • Park Quiet Hours are enforced between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
