Alabama

William B. Bankhead National Forest

About an hour drive northwest of Birmingham you will discover Lewis Smith Lake.  It is the perfect location for water sports, an afternoon picnic, or a relaxing camping escape for the weekend.  Bring a friend, your family, or the whole gang.  There are day-use, overnight, and water sports facilities for individuals and groups.  We operate two areas along the shoreline of the lake.  Select a ranger district below to read about our campgrounds and reserve a campsite.
