Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park is a pretty good place. It's pretty close to B-ham as well.

Oak Mountain State Park is our favorite one, just south of Birmingham in Pelham off of I65. Beautiful park with a nice golf course, small lakes to fish and kayak along with some great hiking and Mtn biking. Close to lots of restaurants and shopping.

Birmingham Campground

Just left Birmingham area after spending 4 months there and personally inspected all campgrounds in 20 mile radius. We wanted most of the comforts of home. I.e. clean bathrooms, safe area, full sewer hookup and wifi. Found Birmingham Southcampground met most of our needs. Just off I65 in Pelham. Only negative was no TV cable but can get a few local channels with just antenna.

X2 on Tannehill State Park. Nice with plenty full hookups. No cable tv, several local channels. Off I59/20 west side of BHam. They do not take reservations, but will give out if they have available sites. Nice folks there. Stay there at least once a year on way to LA. Have heard good things about Cullman cg noth of BHam on I 65, they do take reservations.

Oak Mountain

2X and 3X. Stayed at Oak Mountain last June. Great place. Golf, Lake etc nearby. Call now to see if you can get a spot. Just a bit out of Birmingham.
Don't try to find a tour of the city, there is none. Go to the visitors center, they will give all sorts of info. Suggest dinner in Avondale, in particular, "Melt". Lots of dining and entertainment opportunities in that area. Try to see the Ironworks and a night time Ghost Walk is also very interesting. The downtown entertainment district, Palace Theater, Lyric etc is experiencing a renaissance.
LMK if you plan on visiting Montgomery as well.
Happy Trails, Bob

I agree Oak Mountain. Hilly but has golf fishing biking swimming and food. Very close to the Camper World store also.

We stayed at oak mountain once and was a nice state park. No concrete and a lot of campfires with great walking trails. If you are looking for more of a campground with cable, wifi, etc the best is Birmingham south. Just deepends on what you want. Good luck!!!
