Where to Go

No matter where you live in Alabama, you'll find a state park, forest or other recreation area within easy driving distance. Pack a picnic lunch and load the kids in the car for an inexpensive family adventure! We recommend leaving those electronic games at home. Remember, the idea is to play outdoors! The list below includes a wide variety of locations throughout the state that offer many activity options.
