Master plan at Oak Mountain
As part of our self-review we attempt to identify how we can better extend opportunities to the public. Because of this The Alabama Department of Conservation, the Shelby County Commission and the City of Pelham have decided to evaluate the original master plan for Oak Mountain State Park. We value your input and have created a survey for your feedback.
The Alabama State Parks would like to thank all of our supporters. The Parks have endured adverse situations over the past few years and we are proud to have our visitors and supporters that have helped us meet those challenges head on. Without you, we don't prosper.
Whether it’s kayaking, fishing, biking, boating, beaches, mountains, food, accommodations, business and family functions, or the many other adventures and activities – an Alabama State Park Gift Card is definitely the convenient way to go.
