We are excited to announce that we are working with Recreational Resource Management(RRM) to re-open Roland Cooper State Park. We have been through challenging times over the last few years and were forced to close five parks in 2015. Since that time, we have cultivated partnerships with city and county governments to re-open four of the five that were closed. We are thrilled to say that Roland Cooper is one of the four that will be open again to the public. Thank you for your continued support as RRM works toward the park being open by Labor Day weekend. 

The fishing at Roland Cooper is excellent. Dannelly Reservoir, also known as Millers Ferry, offers some of the best fishing in southwest Alabama. With ample populations of game fish in the lake, anglers should be pleased with their chances of landing a keeper. The park also provides boat launching facilities and hosts fishing tournaments throughout the year.
In addition to fishing, the park offers a variety of overnight accommodations including five furnished two-bedroom cabins and 47 improved campsites with picnic tables, grills, water, 30-amp electrical and sewer hook ups. Tent camping is available on 13 primitive sites as well. All campers have easy access to nearby bathrooms and showers.
Access to the Alabama River and the abundant forested surroundings make Roland Cooper State Park a birder’s paradise. In fact, Roland Cooper is a featured stop on Alabama’s Black Belt Birding Trail. Various raptors, waterfowl and songbirds are common. Bald eagles and osprey are present most of the year.
Paved campsites feature picnic tables, grills, water, 30-amp electrical and sewer hook ups. Dumping stations and trash containers are easily accessible, and bathrooms and shower facilities are nearby. There are 47 improved and 13 primitive sites to choose from.
Roland Cooper State Park also features six completely furnished two-bedroom cabins. One is dog-friendly. 
Area attractions
With Montgomery, Mobile and Selma within a two-hour drive, visitors will have lots of shopping and dining options while traveling to and from the park. Another point of interest in the area is Gee’s Bend, which was featured in the Emmy Award winning Alabama Public Television documentary “The Quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend.” The film focuses on local quilters who produce internationally celebrated quilts.
