Our Semi-Primitive Campsites are located along our Picnic Trail, named by the Civilian Conservations Corps workers. Tent camping at one of our Semi-Primitive campsites allows you to park right next to your site, and you are walking distance to the Bunker Tower, our pavilions, hiking trails, pool, restrooms, and our restaurant. We have 25 easy to access sites available, so make plans to spend the weekend camping at Alabama's Highest Point! These are semi-PRIMITIVE sites so the tent areas are not always level. No access to showers.  There are public restrooms in the Redbud Pavilion nearby.

We have firewood available for purchase at our Country Store!

Check-in at our Country Store begins at 2:00 p.m.
Check-out by 11:00 a.m.
