To help with part of the upkeep of Meadowbrook the facilities were rented for family reunions, church groups and other groups. Many of these groups rented Meadowbrook year after year. The majority of the users were from Cullman County, but some groups came from other counties and other states. Many times the far flung groups were introduced to Cullman County through Meadowbrook. Each year, SCA (Society of Creative Anachro-nism) groups from around Ala-bama rented Meadowbrook for several weekends each year for their meetings.
Each year Meadowbrook was used by more and more people. Several thousand people per year used Meadowbrook.
