Alabama RV parks and campgrounds are in every corner of the state, with some of the most popular RV resorts located around Mobile, along the Gulf Coast. Between Pascagoula Mississippi and Pensacola Florida, Mobile Bay is dotted with campsites, many of which are near or on the beach. The quaint town of Gulf Shores is a popular destination among all manner of traveler, but especially those with trailers and motorhomes. Aside from the white sand beaches, crystal clear water, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, the southern edge of Alabama has plenty to see and explore. Check out Fort Morgan State Historic Site Museum, the USS Alabama, or the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.
Heading north along Interstate 65, the coastal region gives way to Conecuh National Forest, and the little town of Georgiana is home to the Hank Williams Museum. Continuing northeast, you’ll arrive in Montgomery, where the Alabama River meets the Coosa River, and where urban and natural spaces come together at spots like Jasmine Hill Gardens and Outdoor Museum, Fort Toulouse-Jackson Park, and Cooters Pond Park. Montgomery RV parks and campgrounds include some of Alabama’s best, and when you make camp in these parts you’re never far from an enchanting day or weekend escape to the wilds of the state.
Talladega National forest is about 80 miles north of the Montgomery, Alabama RV resorts, and offers the first glimpse of hills and mountains from this end of the deep south. (You would need to travel all the way to the Ozarks before coming across more mountains.) Talladega has miles of hike and bike trails that wind around dense forests, babbling streams, and serene waterfalls. The park even has designated areas for all-terrain vehicles for folks looking for a little more of a jolt than a day spent hiking. Nearby Wind Creek State Park is an ideal spot for folks interested in boating or who have towed their skiff along with them. Other popular natural attractions in Central Alabama include Roland Cooper State Park, Chickasaw State Park, Paul M. Grist State Park, and the protected shoreline of West Point Lake on the border with Georgia.
The northern half of Alabama is defined by massive rivers and aquifers teeming with fish and opportunities for boating and wilderness exploration. The region is home to Bankhead National Forest, where over 180,000 acres of woods and waterfalls enchant visitors from around the globe. Standing in contrast to the largely flat and mostly swampy regions extending south and west of Decatur and Montgomery, other natural destinations in this part of the state celebrate the emergence of hills, valleys, and an all-around more diverse topography ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and horse trail riding. Other popular natural destination in this area include Rickwood Caverns State Park, Smith Lake Park, Dismals Canyon, and Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, which is neighbors with Point Mallard Park, home to a waterpark that features a wave pool and an ice skating rink right next to the Tennessee River.
