You can learn a lot about the animals of the delta area here. Some are live and others are mounted. The outside decks provide a beautiful view of the delta/river area. This is well-worth your time, perhaps a little hidden and out of the way.

This is a small interpretive center with some paths to walk around. It has some interesting displays in a few buildings. They have a movie that talks about the nature start of Alabama to today. The movie is very well done and very informative. Learnt stuff I did not know. The place is free and only takes a couple of hours. The movie is about 45 minutes.

Arrived on a Saturday afternoon, found the visitor centre closed. Drove round the road, the place was deserted. Found a few buildings and were just about to leave when we saw a couple coming out of one so we tentatively went to investigate. Found some good taxidermy displays and information on snakes, some alive some not!
The place has great potential but we were uncomfortable being alone in such a large and deserted place.

This place is laid out kind of strangely. We got a thorough overview from the clerk at the gift shop, and enjoyed a walk along the 1/2 mile trail (featuring labeled trees and shrubs giving you an introduction to native species) to the resource buildings out on the shoreline. The place was built on fill from the construction of I-10, and seems to be funded by natural gas tax revenues from rigs in Mobile Bay. The resource buildings featured nature displays and labs with lots of terrariums featuring snakes, turtles, and some other species. When we visited there were also numerous taxidermy of native animals. Pretty impressive.

A pretty nice park. Some good walking areas, plenty of parking and a nice layout. There's also some recycling facilities in the park.

I have driven by this place hundreds of times and I'm glad I finally stopped by for a visit. We ended up at the gift shop first. It was very nice and had a wide variety of items. It was too hot and we had limited time to walk the trails, so we went into the exhibit halls. There were many different animals on display (alive and taxidermy). There were the movies that we also didn't have time to see. There is no fee for this attraction. In short, I will be going back in the fall when I have more time and it's not so hot.

Lots of fun things for the family - young and old. Took the boat tour on the delta, and seeing alligators was exciting. Kids really enjoyed the day.

MissPris14, We are so glad you and your family enjoyed our Halloween festivities here at 5 Rivers. We are so grateful for all of the monetary support we receive from our visitors to allow us to put on these free events. This year our attendance was quadrupled from last year's, so we are already in planning mode for next year and hope to be able to have more activities, food vendors, and of course tricks and treats!

5 Rivers Delta Resource Center is a wonderful place to visit on the river delta near Mobile Bay in South Alabama. (to the Northern visitors, Mobile is pronounced, MO-Beal).
I know it's weird! The gift shop is very nice and well stocked with local books and pottery, jewlery, toys etc. You can walk through the forrest for a short distance before coming up on the resource center buildings. They have many examples of local animals and also some live ones such as Owls and Snakes! There is even a rare albino deer!
I highly recommend this visit , especially for kids.

My son and I took the Delta Safari tour of the 5 rivers area and it was fabulous. For someone like me from dry South Texas, this was an unexpected pleasure. I had no idea that the Delta there was so important. More details of our tour are on my review of the Delta Safari.
That evening we happened upon a hour documentary on Discovery Channel about the very same area we covered during our boat ride.
This is not only wonderful to see, but very educational.
