The day-use activities at Oak Mountain State Park set it apart from the rest. With the oldest continuously operating BMX Track in the nation, over 50 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails set in a picturesque 9,940-acre park, there is something for all outdoor enthusiasts to appreciate and enjoy.

The park’s day-use picnic facilities include large picnic pavilions and picnic tables with grills, two fishing lakes on the north end of the park (Fishing Center) and in the Main Day-Use one recreational lake with pedal boat and canoe rentals, a sandy beach swimming area, a large open playing field, ample shoreline for bank fisherman and a boat launch for your personal boat (no gas operated motors, but electric trolling motors invited).

We also offer a 18 hole golf course with pro shop & driving range, mountain bike trails, demonstration farm, and horseback riding facilities. If you want to stay longer than a day, the park offers cabins and camping facilities.

Wireless Internet is now available at the Campground.

With the largest area and variety of outdoor recreational pursuits, Oak Mountain is sure to provide excitement for every member of the family!

The Wildlife Center: Located in Oak Mountain State Park, it is the largest wildlife rehabilitation center in Alabama and cares for over 2,000 injured and orphaned wild creatures each year. Visitors may view the rehabilitation process through one-way glass and learn about native species.  The Treetop Nature Trail offers close-up views of unreleasable hawks and owls in natural habitat enclosures from an elevated walkway in the woods. Open every day, it is handicapped accessible.
