This is probably one of the nicest, scenic state parks we have ever stayed in. It defiantly 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.

First time to ever camp here. Water Sewer and Electric. Sites are very shaded and not close together. Have a swimming beach (no lifeguard) and plenty of places to ride bikes. Great marina and lodge also.

Northern Alabama is a scenic area punctuated by the Tennessee River and several Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) projects including Wheeler Dam midway between the cities of Florence and Decatur. The park is named for General Joe Wheeler, A West Point graduate at nineteen, he served in three wars, the Civil War, the Spanish American War, and the Philippine occupation. In addition, he was elected to Congress from Alabama for eighteen years. Joe Wheeler State Park is a highly developed resort park that caters to most recreational activities including boating, fishing, water-skiing, swimming, golf, tennis, basketball, picnicking, and hiking (interpretative programs are offered during the summer months). Accommodations include a beautiful lodge and a fantastic 116 unit campground. The well designed campground is situated in a mature stand of pines and hardwoods and offers paved interior roads and camp spurs. The vast majority of camp sites have electric (20/30 amp), water, and sewer hook-ups. The shower buildings are very well designed and maintained. There is a small store, laundry, and dump station. Our cost was just $66 per week and that included all hook-ups (11/99) making this stop a best buy. We suspect the campground is more hectic and crowded during the summer, however, the setting is exceptional and a visit is well worth the effort.

With full hookups and lots of trees, this is a wonderful state park. They offer swimming, hiking, bike trails, and golf. And most important, it is only a short drive to the "Coon Dog Cemetary".
