Hugging the shore of the 22,000-acre Dannelly Reservoir, Roland Cooper features a nine-hole golf course with clubhouse, vacation cottages, modern campground, and a scenic picnic area with tables, grills, pavilions and comfort station. With all these options visitors are sure to find the rest and recreation they need to shed the stress of that busy work week.
 
Activities
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 six 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, showers and laundry facilities.
 
Deer Haven, the park’s 3,300-yard par 36 golf course, is perfect for players looking for a challenge or just a fun day on the greens.
 
Nature
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.
 
Accommodations
