Opened as a private spa in 1838, visitors to Bladon Springs traveled from all over the country to benefit from the "curing" properties of the park's four mineral wells. In 1846, a large Greek Revival hotle was built to accomodate the influx of visitors. This health resort was once called the "Saratoga of the South" and remianed open through the Civil War. The State of Alabama purchased the property in 1934 and converted the location to a state park.

This is a nice, little park that may be best suited for day use. The old springs have been covered over and some of the wooded areas look like they are being worked on. Downed huge trees and the stream is jagged and rough. You can tell someone has been working on landscaping and maintaining the buildings. There are several pavilions well suited for picnics and the bathrooms are clean/cared for. Camp sites are available but the water is not on and while it looks wired for electrical hookup; we couldn't tell if it worked. Since this is now locally owned and run now no one else was there to answer questions. A sign with information and the areas history would have been most welcome. We enjoyed a walk while we debated on camping. Finally we decided to more on but make our way back here in the future hoping to find work has progressed until camping here would be more adventurous.

Well cared for historic site. Quiet and peaceful place for picnic or family gathering. The campground appeared to be operational, with a phone call to the caretaker.

Washrooms locked, no one around, dogs unleashed. That's Saturday. Imagine how the weekdays could be.
