Meaher State Park Campground Expansion Completed
 
Situated on scenic Ducker Bay where Mobile Bay and the Mobile-Tensaw Delta meet, Meaher State Park has finished a renovation and significant expansion of its camping facilities.
 
The 12 original gravel-based camping sites have been converted to storage sites, and 56 improved camping sites have been constructed on the edge of Ducker Bay. The new sites are paved with 20-, 30- and 50-amp electrical service, water and sewer.
 
Campers and day visitors can enjoy a 500-foot fishing pier on the bay, which offers freshwater fishing in the spring and inshore saltwater angling in the fall. A 1,600-foot boardwalk meanders through the edge of the bay and into the Delta marsh, where a variety of wildlife and waterfowl can be observed. The park also offers a boat ramp and access to the Blakeley River.
 
New facilities at the park include a bathhouse with vending and laundry facilities, as well as day-use restrooms. Two picnic shelters are under construction.
 
Meaher State Park is also situated just across Battleship Parkway from 5 Rivers – Alabama’s Delta Resource Center, which offers an expanded Mobile-Tensaw Delta experience.
 
Fees for the camping sites are $30 per night or $106 per week. The park will take reservations for 50 percent of the sites, while the remaining half will be rented on a first-come basis. Boat launch is $3 per person and a daily pass is $1 for adults and 50 cents for senior citizens 62 and older and youth 6 to 11. Kids under 6 are admitted free.
