Lake Lurleen State Park outside Tuscaloosa has great mountain biking trails. And while you are planning why don't you hit Oak Mountain State Park just south of Birmingham? Some of the best riding in Dixie.

I was going to mention Lake Lurleen State Park. It is on the north side of 82 west of Tuscaloosa/Northport.

we used to more regularly bike at oak mountain...we will be camping there this spring pretty often I think...honestly as soon as there is a 50 degree plus weekend, we will likely go to oak mountain.

Had not thought about lake lurleen....ill give it some thought....probably though we can hit the closer spots up for many other weekend trips.

Monte Sano State Park here in Huntsville has more mountain bike trails than any place I know of in this area. They are very rough rocky technical trails for the most part. I need to get out there on my bike soon.

If you want me to show you around sometime let me know. I know all the trails up here. There is also a Huntsville Land Trust that has lots of trails.

Reserved Vogel

But you all have given many more ideas

That one on Tom Bigbee looks really nice too and pretty close by

This spring and summer we will most weekends be hitting places close by (within 2 hour drive lets say)

Vogel is great, but also consider Stone Mountain, just east of Atlanta, in the future. Really nice sites, lake, lots of activities for you and kids with a shuttle bus within the park.

[QUOTE=PharmGeek;1414220]My wife and I live in Birmingham, AL.

Try Riveredge RV park in Pigeon Forge, our favorite, all kinds of things to do within walking distance or drive up to Gatlinburg walk around historic town with all its shops, visit the aquarium something you wont be disappointed in, visit Clingmans dome where you walk a hike up a 1 mile path to stand out on the point and look over the mountains. Hike in the mountains, etc You can google all of it to see what I am talking about.
Another place is Greenwood SC state park, which is on Greenwood lake one of the most beautiful lakes I have seen.
The problem with any park or state park in SC on the beach the spaces are all reserved by Jan 1 for the entire season with the exception of Myrtle Beach State park they don't pack up as fast as the others do, large camp spaces, plenty of riding room, if you go to Hunting Island it is gorgeous the beach is great, but if you get a spot any place other than the front you are besieged by mosquitos.
