Buck's Pocket State Park
This 2,000-acre park in northeast Alabama is secluded in a natural pocket of the Appalachian Mountains chain. The park's picnic area offers a canyon rim natural vista into the pocket below. The pocket itself, on an upstream tributary of Lake Guntersville, hosts an improved campground, complete with tables, grills, shelters, laundry, comfort station, playground and hiking trails.
Buck’s Pocket features 20 miles of hiking trails varying in length from ¼ mile to 6 miles. Fishing is also available at nearby Morgan’s Cove on Lake Guntersville. In addition, eagle watching is a favorite pastime in this area and if you look carefully you can catch a glimpse of the majestic bald eagles.
