Water skiing and personal watercraft are also allowed on the lake. Visit the park today as see what residents of Florala enjoy year-round.
The main attraction is Lake Jackson itself. Considered one of the cleanest and clearest bodies of water in Alabama, visitors can spend an entire day swimming, boating and fishing. The lake is inviting year-round for campers seeking to avoid those harsh winter months up north. The park is also a perfect spot for area day-cationers who want the white sands and crystal clear waters of the Gulf without the long drive.
Florala State Park is also a stop on Alabama’s Wiregrass birding trail. Waterfowl, song birds and raptors including osprey and Bald eagles are common sites in the park.
