  • Lake Jackson City Park, AL


    Despite the sign, this is no longer a state park. In October 2015 the state of Alabama closed 5 state parks, including Florala. The city of Florala stepped in and assumed ownership and operation of the park. We were here just 4 weeks later. The city council just voted to rename the park Lake Jackson Park, but the signs have yet to be replaced.

    The park is located on the northeast side of Lake Jackson and is conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Florala with its shops and restaurants. The campground is small with only 28 sites, each with full hookups.

    Date of Visit: Nov 2015

    We had made a reservation with the state about two months ago and interestingly they never called to tell us about the closing - the first we knew was when we arrived. There were plenty of available sites and we chose site 6, a waterfront site. A very pleasant spot with some sun, some shade and a great view of the lake.

    Site 12 is at the end of the row of waterfront sites and is quite private.

    Site 13 is another private site.

    These sites, 11-5, are all back-in sites along the lake shore.

    Site 15, to the left, is the only pull-through site in the park. To the right is a short back-in site, 14.

    Sites 16 (r) and 17 (l).

    Sites 18-20.

    Sites 1-4 are waterfront sites.

    Near the entrance to the campground are eight sites that are quite close together. These are sites 24-28.

    Beside the little office are sites 21-23.

    The bathhouse is a bit dated, but Abbie, the city's new park manager, keeps it and the rest of the campground in neat shape. Beside offering free hot showers, the bathhouse also has 2 washers abd 2 dryers, a dollar a load.

    Behind site 7 is this fishing pier.

    A mile-long walk and bike path, paved and with a long wooden boardwalk, wends along the shore of the lake into town.

    Just about every night we were here we enjoyed beautiful sunsets across the lake.
