The park offers vacation cottages, golf, pro shop with snack bar, improved camping, picnicking, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, mountain bike trails, backpacking, a demonstration farm and horseback riding and equestrian campground facilities. With the largest area and variety of outdoor recreational pursuits, Oak Mountain is sure to provide excitement for every member of the family!

Bows & Brews at Oak Mountain State Park
This is the FIRST Southern Outdoorsmen event ever! We thought it would be fun to get together with some listeners for a fun day of bow shooting, turkey calling, gear demoing, and podcasting! This will be a very laid back event, and admission is free (other than the $5 to get into the state park). IMPORTANT: Alcohol is NOT ALLOWED at the archery range portion of the state park. After the bow shoot and live podcast, we will head to a local restaurant/bar for drinks
Exploring Vernal Pools at Oak Mountain State Park
Explore a winter wetland right here in Oak Mountain State Park on this in-park fieldtrip! Join OMSP Park Naturalist and see up close the life cycle of our salamanders and frogs!

Vernal Pools or Ephemeral Pools are bodies of water, usually void of fish, that form over the winter months and are the support system for the beginning of our amphibian friend's lives! See egg masses up close and help welcome new salamanders into this big world!

Meet at the Oak Mountain Interpretive Center at 1pm. After a quick introduction we will caravan a short distance to the Vernal Pool.

Wear weather appropriate clothes! Leave strollers and dogs at home for this event. This is an easy and short walk to the vernal pool but keep in mind that the ground will be wet in areas. We suggest wearing old shoes or boots.
