Blakeley State Park

A few days ago, hubby and I decided to visit a state park in Spanish Fort, Alabama that we had been wanting to visit, but never got around to it.

It is a large state park and is the site of the old town of Blakeley, Alabama. At one time Blakeley was comparable in size to Mobile, Alabama. It was, however, decimated (population wise) by yellow fever before the Civil War.

During the Civil War it was the site of several battles and remnants of those campaigns still remain.

There are many areas to picnic and camp. Camping is $30 a nite for RV’s. I’m not sure about tent camping. Information is available on the internet if you are headed that way and want to spend a few nights there.

I took quite a few pictures of the park and some of it’s wildlife. Enjoy.
