There are picnic areas in various parts of the park A nice relaxing place to eat. The picnic table in the photo has seen better days, but there are better ones. This squirrel was hanging around near the pinic area hoping for a handout. You should not feed them though because they don't eat the same things we do.
There are also 4 group pavilions in the park if you are going there with a large group. They cost from $50 to $100.
The main attraction to the park is the 26 acre lake. It has one stream feeding into it and one coming out of it. There is a nice swimming area and you can also fish for bass, catfish, bream and crappie.
There are several hiking trails throughout the 696 acre park. The one the ranger recommended, and that I hiked, was the trail to the falls. It was fairly short but steep at times and had rough footing. The falls was kinda nice though.
Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen a hat. Don't forget the bug repellant.
There is a small area set aside for swimming and wading. The water can be very refreshing on a hot summer day in Alabama.
Equipment: Swim trunks (skinnydipping is discoraged)
