Lake Lurleen State Park

Located nine miles northwest of Tuscaloosa and Northport, this 1,625-acre park is a scenic retreat set on the banks of Lake Lurleen and offers plenty of recreation and relaxation. Facilities include a modern campground, activity building, picnic areas, play areas, pavilions, a beach and bathhouse, fishing piers, RV storage, boat rentals and boat-launch areas.

The park features more than 23 miles of multi-use trails ranging from easy to moderate in difficulty. The trails hug the shoreline of Lake Lurleen and are open to both hikers and mountain bikers. The park also features a Nature Center, fishing, meeting facilities, paddle boats, swimming and a beach.

Lake Lurleen offers 91 modern campsites with water and electric hook-up; 35 sites have sewage drain connections. Modern bathhouses are conveniently located throughout the park for the campers.

The main attraction at the park is the 250-acre Lake Lurleen. The lake measures nearly one and a half miles in length, one-half mile wide, and at its deepest is 48 feet. The lake is stocked with largemouth bass, bream, catfish, and crappie so anglers are sure to reel in a nice-sized catch. Boat-launch areas and ample pier and bank fishing are available.
