Buck’s Pocket State Park

Buck’s Pocket State Park

Buck’s Pocket State Park is publicly owned recreation area located on Sand Mountain in the northeast corner of the U.S. state of Alabama, 2 miles north of the community of Grove Oak. The state park occupies 2,000 acres surrounding a natural pocket (canyon) of the Appalachian Mountain chain along South Sauty Creek, an upstream tributary on the east side of Guntersville Lake. The park is known for the sweeping views of its rugged, seemingly untouched landscape provided from the heights of Point Rock. The origin of the name “Buck’s Pocket” has been variously attributed to the presence of large herds of deer, the legendary death of a buck who leapt from Point Rock after being trapped by Cherokee, and a man named Buck Berry who used the area to hide from the draft during the Civil War. A persistent story dating from the 1940s holds that unsuccessful Alabama politicians go to Buck’s Pocket after being defeated at the polls.

Blakeley Alabama

Overlooking the marshes of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta just north of Mobile is the site
of the Alabama ghost town of Blakeley.

Now a part of Historic Blakeley State Park, the city once competed with Mobile for the status of queen city of Lower Alabama. All that remains today are gravestones, a few ruins and traces of old streets.

Chewacla State Park

Chewacla State Park

Lake Chewacla is perfect for reeling in bream, bass, crappie and catfish or taking a dip off the beach area. No luck in the lake, then try one of the park’s two creeks. There is no boat ramp on the lake, but visitors are allowed to bring their own small non-motorized watercraft such as canoes or kayaks if they can be hand-launched from the bank.
