General Information

Description - Alabama State Parks are excellent resources for all day activities such as picnicking and viewing historical sites. The State of Alabama is blessed with approximately 177 miles of hiking, nature, horse and mountain bike trails. The natural diversity of the state is no where more evident than in the different geographic areas in North, Central and South Alabama. Where else could a park visitor go to enjoy the mountainous terrain of the Appalachian Plateau, the Central Plains and related forest land, and the Southern Coastal Plain in its Delta beauty?

Recreation - Alabama State Parks offer activities such as picnicking, hiking, biking, horseback riding, canoeing, and viewing historical sites.

Climate - Much of Alabama receives nearly 60 inches of rain each year. The highest amount of rain reaches the region as afternoon thunderstorms in July, August and September. Summers are extremely hot and humid with temperatures frequently reaching above 100 degrees F. Summer nights cool slightly and provide a good time to travel through the region.

Winter temperatures are mild, rarely dipping below 40 degrees with the humidity level at its lowest in November and December. Spring and fall are very pleasant times to visit the region. Spring brings mild temperatures and blooming trees and flowers. During autumn, temperatures range from 65 to 85 degrees F with low humidity levels. Northern Alabama is generally cooler than the south due to its higher elevations.

Location - Alabama State Parks are located throughout the State of Alabama.

Report: We took our motorhome up to Mount Cheaha State Park and spent last weekend. The way from I-20 was well marked. We found the access easy for our motorcoach and every single staff person from the campstore manager to the wait staff at the restaurant were so nice. If you enjoy hiking, take the blue trail to Cheaha Falls. We rested and spent some time wading in the pristine mountain water. The restaurant food was very good. I ordered the Southern Fried Chicken and was very pleased. Breakfast buffets are 'all you can eat' for $5.95 Wildlife was abundant. Two deer were foraging right next to our campsite late on Saturday night. We know we didn't scratch the surface of what could be experienced, but for a weekend, it was great. Oh! be sure you visit the fully accessible boardwalk out to Bald Rock. Strollers and wheelchairs are perfect here. Very educational and welcoming. Spectacular view. We'll go back for sure!
