Some popular activities are Guided Paddling Tours in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta and Kids Fishing Events on our fishing pier.
Guided Paddling Tours: Can be one or two hours long and up to 20 people can join. This will take place in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta where you will get an up close look at the extreme biodiversity in the area. Our Naturalist will discuss this biodiversity on The park has 10 tandem kayaks available (can seat one of two paddlers) and 3 canoes. If you are reserving these for your group there will be a $15 charge per vessel being rented.
Kids Fishing Events: This event can be one or two hours long and is free of charge but you must provide your own bait and poles. Meaher State Park does have a couple fishing poles for some kids to use, but there will not be enough for more than a handful of folks. A demonstration on casting and baiting hooks can be given to any child that does not know how to.
