Joe Wheeler State Park is probably one of the nicest, most scenic state parks we have ever stayed in. It definitely rivals our great Texas state parks.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, even after closing when we arrived late at night. The roads were black top and the sites had level black top RV pads as well. The full hook-up utilities were in good shape and well positioned on the site. Local TV reception from Huntsville was very good. There were plenty of trees so the sites were completely shaded. The sites were very large and roomy. There was plenty of privacy between sites.
The rest rooms were decent, but were the typical state park flavor. This was not an issue for us because we were using the full hook-ups.
There was a great swimming hole over at the day area. Only problem here was you had to drive to get to it because it was too far to walk with lawn chairs, towels, ice chest etc.
Price was $19 per night.
We camped here in a fifth wheel and highly recommend this park.
