Dam-It's Pretty!


August 9, 2006

The park is near Bankhead Dam at the very end of a country road. No matter where you are coming from, it is quite a ways away from everything. Still, it's worth the drive. This campground, which sits right between two steep hills, underwent major upgrades a few years ago. It has very nice interior roads and pretty stone bridges. There is a "pump" operated stream that runs right through the camping area (the creek bed is real, but the water is supplied). The concrete sites are level, spacious, and shaded. There are a few sites right on the river, but these are usually hard to get. Nevertheless, the scenery is beautiful and a walk through the park provides plenty of that. All of the sites have nice scenery amongst the big tall trees. The swimming area and playground are nice.
