The lake is absolutely beautiful! I could fish this lake all day. There is a playground, numerous shaded picnic tables, bath house (it's clean), boat launch, full campground with a cabin, and pavilions. The lady in the office is great - she was both helpful and nice. This park would be great for a family wanting to picnic, swim, and fish.
Now having said that... I went to Little River State Park for the hiking trails - CCC/Bell Trail and Gazebo Trail - I was VERY disappointed! I purchased A Falcon Guides book – Hiking Alabama – the book gave a wonderful description so I just had to go to these trails! (I guess the author isn’t a hiker) The trails are nothing more than old logging roads. The forest that surrounds the lake is being harvested! I am originally from Tennessee and the land at this park reminded me of how Westvaco mines the land. There are very few hard woods left and no hurricane did this type of damage.
Overall, the man-made lake is beautiful and worth the trip but don’t bother going for the hiking…
