The tornado that passed through Joe Wheeler State Park on December 16, 2019, devastated our beloved campground and day-use/picnic area, forcing the park to close these areas and cancel all camping reservations. Since then, park officials have worked tirelessly, wading through proper channels and protocols to ensure the very best future for both the Joe Wheeler State Park Campground and Day Use Area.
