    Re: Buck's Pocket

    the website link gives an error, a link to the park is http://www.alapark.com/bucks-pocket-state-park. Evidently camping closed at least for now.

    "The Alabama State Parks has implemented operational changes at Buck’s Pocket State Park. Vehicular traffic is open to the Point Rock scenic overlook and the Morgan Cove boat ramp as normal. The campground is currently closed to campers, but open as a walk in day use area only. The campground bathrooms have been closed. To access the trails please use the Point Rock scenic overlook and the trailhead near the campground parking area. The primitive road is currently closed due to flood damage. All areas of the park are closed at sundown.
    Although we closed portions of Buck’s Pocket, we also operated "business as usual" and as a part of this, the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs submitted and were awarded federal grants on behalf of the state parks system. As a result, Buck’s Pocket received a $526,000 grant for an ATV trail system. We will keep working towards creating new and exciting forms of outdoor recreation while improving our traditional amenities as well. We take pride in serving the people of Alabama and hope these grants will support us in eventually reopening the campground at parks like Bucks Pocket. Thanks for your support. "

    That's what I read also, catskinner09. I am wondering if that is an old report that has not been corrected. Maybe someone can enlighten us on whether the CG is open for business or not.

    With that being said, Buck's Pocket State Park looks like a great place to visit after looking at a bunch of photos online of the place. I had no idea there was any place in Alabama that looked that rugged!!!
