    Natural Features

    The 180,000+ acre Bankhead National Forest is in northwestern Alabama, and its prominent feature is the Sipsey Wilderness . Known as "The Land of a Thousand Waterfalls," the Sipsey is at the juncture of three separate geologic areas: the Appalachian Plateau, the Cumberland Plateau and the Coastal Plain. The vegetation from these three unique environments blend into a remarkable diversity of species, with overlapping ranges creating many unusual plant associations. The Sipsey is a 12,726 acre area of swift streams, waterfalls, sandstone cliffs, undisturbed gorges, majestic hardwood forests, wildflowers, birds, animals and is home to Alabama's largest tree, a tulip poplar with a 21-foot circumference at its base. 

    Lewis-Smith Lake (or Smith Lake) is located in the counties of Cullman, Walker and Winston. The 300-foot high dam, completed in 1961 by Alabama Power Company, impounds the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River to form the lake. Smith Lake has a surface area of 21,200 acres, 500 miles of shoreline, a watershed area of 944 square miles, a retention time of 435 days, and a maximum depth of 264 feet.

    Nearby Attractions

    Four nearby attractions within Bankhead National Forest are: 

    • The Little Natural Bridge is the longest rock arch east of the Rockies. It was formed 200 million years ago when the sea washed the sandstone away leaving iron ore veins holding the bridge. In this area thrive 27 varieties of Ferns and a number of Canadian Hemlocks traced to the Ice Age. Satellite Map of Natural Bridge Park
    • The 19th-century Pine Torch Church is one of the oldest churches in Alabama and one of only four surviving log churches. The church is located in the Bankhead Forest in Lawrence County at the intersection of Country Roads 70 and 73 Several online sources say it was built in the 1890s but a sign at the site claims in was built in the 1840s. According to legend, Pine Torch got its name from the pine knots that were set ablaze to light the building after dark. It is made of hand-hewn logs. The original floor, made of hand-hewn poplar planks, was stolen piece-by-piece and was replaced in 1940, according to a historic marker at the site. The original roof was made of hand-split wooden shingles. It was later replaced with tin. Behind the church is a cemetery whose grounds are covered with sand to make maintenance easier. A newer and larger wooden church was built at the back of the property. It is still in use. Satellite Map of the Pine Torch Church
    • The Houston Civil War Jail - Houston, Alabama served as the first county seat for Winston County. The area known today as Winston County was originally established in 1850 as Hancock County, named after John Hancock, signer of the Declaration of Independence. In 1858 the county was renamed Winston after the first native-born governor of Alabama, John Anthony Winston. Old Houston, located a few miles away from present day Houston, was the first county seat. Citizens voted to move the county seat to present day Houston in the late 1850's and a log jail was constructed at that time. The jail burned during the Civil War and was rebuilt in 1868. The Houston jail was built of hand-hewn logs filled with nails to prevent prisoners from "sawing their way to freedom". The jail held prisoners and provided a site for court. In 1884 the county seat was moved from Houston to present day Double Springs. Houston Historical Society

    The site was level and easy accessible. Had no problem with our stay. However, there are a LOT of permanent campers throughout the campground, some were run down and trashy around them. We camped at Smith Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

    I would not recommend eating at Whitlock General Store and Cafe. The food was far from good and our waitress was on a personal phone call while trying to take our order. Was not impressed

    Do not bring your big rig diesel pusher motor home here. While it is "accessible" they put big rigs in a section that is literally a sloped hill. You're not getting level unless you want a couple tires up in the air which personally we won't do. Ugly gravel spot, small with a broken picnic table. RV Trip Wizard directed us around the entrance and got us stuck in a bad place to turn around. If you come here follow the sign that says "Office" and ignore GPS. Staff is nice. We prepaid and then we're a day delayed due to weather and they kindly refunded that day. Honestly though, we won't be back. We camped at Smith Lake Park in a Motorhome.

    My wife called from the road and they were friendly and reserved a site with a credit card. They closed at 4:30pm and we were arriving after 5. It wasn't much but they neglected to inform here about the credit card surcharge. We arrived and picked up our registration information directing is to our site with instructions on where to park between the power pedestals. The instructions did not match the site assigned. We tried calling the office but they really leave at 4:30 and you are on your own. The power pedestal for our site faced one road but you backed in from another road. 30amp receptacle was worn and loose but wired correctly. Site was unlevel so had to unhook for the one night stay. Sewer Hookups are literally next to your neighbors door. I mean just a couple feet. Seasonal units in disrepair. Overall, a poor experience and would not recommend. We camped at Smith Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

    Campsites very unlevel, have no grills or fire pits, sewer hookups are unsecured and open. Lots of loud drunks around all weekend. Extra fees for parking were undisclosed. Staff wanted to argue with us about non-disclosure of fees. Customer service was nonexistent. We will never return here.

    Yuck. Think twice about camping here.

    Oct 2019 • Family

    RV spots are on top of each other. Hardly any are shaded. The “good” spots are taken by crappy rundown campers who live here full time. No hiking trails. You can smell the sewage constantly. Yuck. Go to another park.

    great place to go....unless you have to go!

    Aug 2019

    This site is beautiful but dirty. the restrooms are filthy and should be avoided at all cost. the site could use a playground next to the swimming areas and regular cleanings.

    Not good

    Aug 2019 • Couples

    Seems like they have lost the plot. Think this place needs a rethink. Lot of space but unless you are camping launching a boat, swimming in pool or gonna lay the little gold course then is just a waste of time going there. Have been to several parks this trip to Alabama and this is down at the bottom of the list for facilities. Could do so much more if the effort was made.

    Needs help

    Jul 2019 • Family

    The park is out of control. Litter is getting bad. Staff and police presence needs to be stepped up. Water safety is POORLY MANAGED. Multiple deaths in the last two months. Not safe anymore

    Jun 2019 • Couples

    stayed there 4 days in our 37' motor home they put us in a spot with a huge tree! we could barely back in! Bathrooms were not very clean at all and water pressure not that good but the park is beautiful with the lake and close to many things to do.

    Great festival venue

    Oct 2018 • Family

    Loved going to the sweet potato festival . Definitely one of our favorites to go to during the year .

    Lots of camping sites available from RV, Primitive , and even cabins on site. Lovely little putt putt golf course with a little shop nearby for sundries .

    Brand new boat launch is easy to use , some fishing piers off to the side as well as lake access from the camp sites . There is also a pool and slide but those are seasonal . However I believe the kayaks and paddle
    Boards are year around .

    Smith lake park

    Sep 2018 • Couples

    Smith lake park is a good place to camp. We go because its close to home for us. The only complaint we have is the bath houses need some updates and it is so hot in the summer time.

    Loud crowded campground unwilling to refund our money when son got sick

    Sep 2018 • Family

    Labor day is NOT a good time to visit. We were kept up by people setting up camp at midnight then woke up by kids screaming nearby. We had to leave to go to hotel when our son got sick and we were not given any refund as we missed the noon checkout by 2 hours and our son was forced to pay an additional $5 for some sweet potato festival though we were camping already and never went. Boat ramp has 5 lanes and is jammed with people who blow horns at you if you need additional time. Plus despite a no alcohol policy people everywhere were drinking beer.

    AM Trip

    Aug 2018 • Couples

    Took the kayaks out from one of the beach areas. Nice place to kayak, swim, or paddle board. Near boat launch but its a no wake area so very easy to do. The only reason I did not rate it 5 was that bathrooms at launch site were dirty, no hand soap, or toilet paper. It was a Thursday am so not busy. The beach area had some broken bits of glass in it so be careful walking. Otherwise, the pool area and putt putt area looked kept up and clean. Campground looked nice too.
