Overview

This 1,327-acre park is situated in the wetlands of 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. A self-guided walk on two nature trails includes a boardwalk with an up-close view of the beautiful Mobile Delta.

We've camped here several times for short periods and the sites are large and have a great view of the bay. Only problem is poor wifi and no cable tv.
