It’s unfortunate there is not a cut through to connect the longer trails, but is a beautiful ride. Will definitely go again

Paul M. Grist State Park  - Selma, AL

Trail Rating: 
Camp Rating: 

Camp Grist, as the locals call her, is a wonderfully place for EVERYONE! NO ATV'S or HUNTING ALLOWED! open 365 days a year. There is a great group of volunteers helping maintain and keep all the trails clear and open, Back Country Horsemen of West AL. They have been at the park since 2021 and can be found on facebook. This is a multi purpose trail system, geocaching, biking, hiking, birdies and horse back Riders. There is a 100 acres lake that's great for fishing, swimming, kayaking. There is John & paddle boat rentals, or you can bring your own small flat bottom boat ( trolling motors used only). Play ground, 2 pavilions ( big and small) picnic tables throughout the camp grounds and a few places along trails. Trails are rollings with a few climbs & flats, bridge & creek crossings, 99% SHADED & horses DO NOT need shoes. Great for all levels or riding horses & bikes. Roughly 21-23 miles. Camp Grist has 11 full hook ups, 5 primitive camp sites. The BCHA of West AL, is working hard on having a separate horse camping area with water for horses!!! Currently horses are allowed to camp in ANY AREA, primitive or full hooks up! There are no stables, but picketing and portable fences are allowed. The park is WELL MARKED with color markers and has colored maps located inside & outside the office door for anyone to grab quick. Bikers, these trails are great for even bikers! So y'all come on and give Camp Grist a spin. Birdies, there are some bald eagles the call Camp Grist their home, among a large variety of native birds. Geocaching, let the hunt begin! You will love the finds. This place is peaceful and QUIET! Park fees.... Day use 6 under free 6-65 $3 over 65 $2 camping fees need to call the park as she fills up quick.

Camp Rating: 

Absolutely loved this campground. The stall construction are the best I've seen. I would give the trails a 5 star if there was less mud and there were several trees down across the trails. Nothing new for my horse and myself, but was expecting more trail maintenance for a national park. This could just be my wrong perception. I would encourage a trip/stay here!

Trails were labeled well, was able to use paper map and phone map to find my way around the trails. Even though it rained, there was no excessive water/ mud that limited my ride or trails. Plenty of room on the trails for rides, no concerns for getting injured by tight spaces or brush. So many trail options to never get bored. Beautiful views - tons of acres for endless rides. Campsite had public restroom/ shower and tack room for convenience which was great. If you’re going camping , I don’t see a real need for wifi, but since it’s so rural there is poor service. Public wifi may be a future convenience, but that’s not why I went horse camping.
