We have camped many years at Wind Creek State Park. We camped in a tent when my children were small, a pop-up camper when they were teenagers, and now we have a camper. We have rented the cabins and enjoyed them too. We have brought our grandchildren and now they bring their kids. We have encountered a few problems over the years, but when we talked to the staff, the problems were handled. No, the park is not perfect. It is not a million dollar resort, and doesn't pretend to be. I am sure if you look for the negatives, you will find them anywhere at any park. However, if you want a fun vacation with beautiful scenery, peaceful surroundings, pleasant walks, then you won't be disappointed. The noise of children laughing and splashing in the water, the squeak of bicycle wheels as children ride on the roads, the sight of the squirrels running through the leaves, add to a very enjoyable experience. Wind Creek State Park is a very enjoyable place to spend leisure time.

2nd review for this park. Wanted to give it a two this time but our lot was large so the 3 is there. BUT, you have to basically protect your Waterfront lot as the Park does not ! People from all the other sites try to use your site as a cut thru to the water, bike ride or just to walk. No asking and no child supervision. There was VERY little enforcement of Alabama Traffic laws..actually about zero. Small kids riding on tail gates, 8-9 yr olds driving golf carts, adults/kids riding jet skis WHILE being towed behind truck. Boats loaded with people being towed behind vehicles. Indiscriminate cruising of the park was very prevalent and not enforced. People riding on Jeep roll bars...most of this was seen by Park employees but didn't matter. Loud, revving engines after dark AND ZERO social distancing. Water pressure was very low entire 2 weeks. we actually cancelled our other 2 weeks as the Park is more "mob" like on weekends. The rules/regulations you receive, cover what I have listed. It is extremely dangerous to not ENFORCE your own rules. Especially the Alabama Traffic laws ! One more thing.... there is no set time they consider sunset.. We were run off at 7:01 from beach area but the other nights varied. Anywhere between 7 and 8....there choice. There is an actual sunset time guide but don't think they know it. They lost an extra ? 350 dollars due to this p[lace Not following there on rules. Is it fun..yes in october to February. Spring/Summer ..NO.....very unruly,disorganized and lack of any Enforcement for Traffic laws. HUGE safety issues. Sorry but there is the story and it is all true...don't believe ?? Go see for yourself. Someone/child is going to get hurt or killed by lack of enforcement.

We spent Sunday-Thursday camping at the park. Our site was across from a waterfront site, which luckily was vacant and our view was not obstructed. The lake was clean and fun to swim. The bottom was not mushy or rocky, so it was comfortable to walk in the lake. The park has lots of amenities that are still closed because of Coronavirus, but we still had lots of fun!

Stopped in at the park to visit family who were camped there. This is a very secure campground. You needed to enter codes at two gates to enter the camping area. This place is huge! Many many campsites. A lot of them are way closer together than we prefer though. The lake area is beautiful. This place appears to offer pretty much everything and is within 5 miles from town. We will be going back.

We stayed the fall festival weekend and It was packed ! But....even with rain, this park was amazing. If you want everything within the walls of a State Park it is here. You name it and they have it for recreation. Can't give 5 stars due to they Did Not enforce quiet hours as advertised .Loud trucks and cars riding the park., WAY more than 2 cars per spot at several sites (football weekend) with semi-loud crowd. I read and follow the rules and expect the same to be done by others. Don't print rules if you will not enforce them. I will be back soon regardless tho and this is THE BEST State Park in Bama ! Did Have electrical issues that were handled quickly By Alabama Power. It was not the Park. Thanks for a great stay !!!!
