Campers and park-goers at Lakepoint State Park (Alabama) will enjoy new and exciting outdoor recreation activities this summer!
As per a report, State Parks officials, local officials, and business community representatives came together for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday to officially launch Lakepoint State Park’s new off-road vehicle course located on the land that was once home to the park’s golf course.
The off-road vehicle course and motorized nature trail are woven into the campground and provide additional amenities for visitors to Lakepoint State Park.
“Lakepoint State Park has a great reputation as being a family-friendly fishing destination, and we want to provide new amenities to the park that will enhance the overall guest experience,” Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Commissioner Chris Blankenship said.
“Providing this new ORV course here at Lakepoint is another example of expanding our offerings to a growing outdoor recreation segment, and if you enjoy a more relaxing golf cart cruise, you can also take a ride down our new motorized natural trail.”
Lake Eufaula – known as the “The Bass Capital of the World,” draws thousands of visitors to Lakepoint State Park annually. Park officials are working to improve the Park System by renovating existing facilities and providing new amenities to keep those visitors coming back.
“Recently, the Alabama State Park has been able to renovate ten cabins, and we are currently working on renovating an additional ten cabins,” Alabama State Parks Director Greg Lein stated. “Our cabins and lodges are a great way to enjoy our parks if you do not have a camper.”
