Geneva State Forest
Geneva State Forest (GSF), located in Geneva County, is Alabama’s largest state forest. Managed by the Alabama Forestry Commission encompassing 7,120 acres of predominately longleaf pine Geneva State Forest provides the state of Alabama with one of the most valuable natural resources, timber. Fishing is available in the 100-acre lake. Primitive roads throughout the forest provide a scenic view for trail rides. The longleaf forests provide ample habitat for viewing many native wildlife species including: deer, turkey, quail, rabbit, fox, bobcat, squirrel, and non-game species as well. The Alabama Hiking Trail Society has established and maintains a hiking trail around the lake. Each of these recreational activities requires a daily permit which can be obtained at Geneva State Forest Lake.
