Camping at Wind Creek State Park

Camping and Fishing, Fishing and Camping

People that love to fish come to Lake Martin quite often, and for good reason. People that love to camp while fishing, well they come here, too. We camped here in August of 2009 which is peak heat season in Alabama. Thankfully, the lake is great for swimming and cooling off! Our daughter stopped by to visit us while we were here and brought Gracie along, which is always a good thing. She really enjoyed the wildlife that was near our campsite.

Wind Creek State Park spans 1,445 acres along the shores of scenic Lake Martin, a 41,000 acre clear water reservoir perfect for fishing, swimming and boating. Wind Creek boasts the largest state-operated campground in the United States with 626 sites. One hundred eighty-seven sites are waterfront, allowing for fishing, swimming, and boating. Other facilities include a marina, camp store, fishing pier, hiking trails, playground and picnic areas with tables, grills and shelters. Bath houses are located throughout the campgrounds, and facilities for laundry. Seven camping cabins are now open to the public. Source: Official Site


When we arrived at the park, the best camping spots were already taken but we did manage to get one near the water. It was the greatest site but certainly wasn't the worst. It was close to the stage and playground which Gracie was thankful for. We even got to see and Elvis impersonator while camped here. He was pretty good, too. I forget how long we stayed here but it was long enough to ride the area on the scooters. If you live close enough and you like to fish and/or camp, be sure to visit Wind Creek State Park.
