This 1,327-acre park is situated in the wetlands of north Mobile Bay, and is a day-use, picnicking and scenic park with modern camping hook-ups for overnight visitors. Meaher’s boat ramp and fishing pier will appeal to every fisherman and a self-guided walk on our boardwalk will give you an up-close view of the beautiful Mobile-Tensaw Delta.
There is a $2 per person park entry fee to enter Meaher State Park for day use only. You might choose to go fishing, hiking, picture taking, birding, etc. If you choose to go boating there is a $4 per boat entry fee. See camping page for RV and tent camping fees and the cabin by the bay for cabin rental.
The Mobile-Tensaw Delta consists of approximately 20,323 acres of water, is the second largest delta in the contiguous US and Meaher State Park is the perfect access point to this massive natural wonder. Formed by the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta is a complex network of tidally influenced rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous. Since the Delta empties into Mobile Bay, it is a productive estuary with numerous species of fresh and saltwater fish, which makes Meaher State Park an angler’s dream. If you're lucky, you might also see an alligator or two.
The park offers a 300-foot pier with a 200-foot "T" for your fishing pleasure. Access to the pier is included in the park admission fee. An Alabama freshwater fishing license is required, and most common freshwater and saltwater fish are abundant in the area. There is also a boat ramp with access to Blakeley River located on the east end of the park. Entry is $4 per boat. The ramp is accessible from 7 a.m. until sundown. You may also choose to walk the park with your camera, binoculars or even your favorite pet. There is a second boardwalk for walking only where you might see some of the delta's most unique flora and fauna.
