High Falls

One of the best nature spots around north east Alabama. Located in High Falls Park, off AL HWY 227 Northwest of Geraldine, Alabama is High Falls. This scenic waterfall is 35ft and is formed by Town Creek. When the water is high, the falls can sometimes span as much as 300ft across. This park is fairly small and definitely off the beaten path on Alabama’s back roads, so be sure to pay attention to which streets you’re on.

High Falls is an impressive waterfall and a great local spot for cliff jumping. High Falls is a beautiful swimming hole with a few walking trails and picnic tables as well as pavilions.

Aliceville Lake, aka Aliceville Reservoir and sometimes called Pickensville Lake by local anglers, is an 8,300-acre reservoir located approximately 12 miles northwest of the City of Aliceville Alabama in Pickens County. The reservoir is formed by the Tom Bevill Lock and Dam, which is located one mile southwest of Pickensville, just off Alabama State Highway 14. This reservoir is popular with anglers from both Alabama and Mississippi since portions of the impoundment are located in both states. Modern campgrounds, primitive camping areas, and day-use facilities are found around the lake. We have additional information on Alabama campground areas here.
