Fellow RVers traveling to Florida via Alabama…. boy do we have something wonderful to share with you!! In search of a place to lay our heads after a long day of travel, we stumbled upon a small, absolutely beautiful RV Park in Florala, Alabama (which is just miles from the northern Florida-Alabama state line). It’s in a great location… and just an hour north of Destin, FL (our destination).
Until 2 weeks ago, Lake Jackson RV Park was a State Park. But the city bought it, hired a friendly and knowledgeable Park Manager (who happens to come from Ohio, too), and is hoping to build it into something special. Well, I can tell you that it’s already special.
The RV Park is very small (under 20 sites), with the majority of the sites on a scenic, small lake. The spots are a nice size and are shaded with Cyprus Trees (and even have Spanish Moss on them). The park has walkways around the lake, which extend into a wetlands section. It’s quiet, peaceful and absolutely lovely.
Because this park has gone through a change in ownership, I think there are hopes for growth in the future. Since this is a transitional time, there isn’t much publicity or social media presence. I suspect that will change in the future, though. The Park Manager (his name escapes me for now) is excited to welcome overnight travelers, vacationers, and snowbirds. We paid $34 for full hook-ups (electric, water, cable and wifi) for one night for this perfect overnight lakefront spot.
If you make your way to Lake Jackson RV Park, tell ’em Chris from Ohio sent you. The Park Manager is genuinely welcoming to RVers visiting his gorgeous park and hopes to see it flourish in the coming year. Up until now, it’s a hidden treasure.
