DeSoto State Park would like to thank all of our supporters.

Without you, we don't prosper!
 

   

Alabama State Parks operates and maintains 22 State Parks encompassing approximately 48,000 acres of land and water. These Parks rely on visitor fees and the support of other partners like communities to fund the majority of their operations.

Alabama State 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. Alabama State Parks offer ideal places to stay: resorts, hotels, cabins and cottages, camping; and fun places to play: hiking, biking, golf, fishing, paddling, swimming, birding and wildlife viewing or just relaxing. See www.Alapark.com for details on our sister parks in Alabama.

Access to Alabama State Parks and State Park Programs is available without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex or disabilities.
