Buck's Pocket State Park Northeast Alabama!

Feb 1, 2008
Growing up in Geraldine Alabama I was lucky to have an awesome park in my Back yard. Buck's Pocket State Park is located only two miles North of Grove Oak Located in North East Alabama. Once you see your first 1,000-foot overlook you will come back again and again! It is truly one Of Alabama's Treasures.

With over 18 miles of hiking trails along the beautiful South Sauty Creek there are plenty of paths to keep you busy. Great Camping, Kayaking, Horseback Riding Trails, picnicking, fishing, plenty of Wildlife and native plants also. The 2,000-acre nature treasure is one of my favorite places to visit and get connected back to nature again! Sitting on the Point Rock you can see an awesome view and if you're lucky you may get to see an Eagle or an Owl. You can also hike from the bottom to the top!

Located in three counties (Jackson, Dekalb and Marshall) Buck's Pocket was once home to the Cherokee Indians before the Trail of Tears. The area was used for growing coffee and olives by the French during the 1700's Also!

Buck's Pocket is a Natural Pocket of the Appalachian Mountains and it Located 7 miles down stream from Morgan's Cove. It feeds into Lake Guntersville and has a Boat Launch and fishing area famous for some of the worlds most Awesome Bass Fishing.

There are 36 modern Campsites with a playground and store/ranger station. There is also primitive camping with over night horse camping! Power and Water is only $18 per night and primitive is $9. Not a bad deal to get to stay at one of the most beautiful places in Alabama. The really cool Thing, you're only a few minutes from some of Alabama's magical places! It is one of best places to camp if you want to see some of Alabama's finest wildlife.
One of the best hikes you can take is from the camping area all the way down to Morgan's cove! The creek is awesome and you might see some really cool wildlife. The area is famous for its vast supply of wild animals! If you camp you might go ahead and get ready to see a coon or some other critters looking for food. I have seen possums, deer, squirrels, rabbit, and wild cats. I have heard stories of bear spotted in the area, it would be the perfect living area!

Only 15 minutes away you have Lake Guntersville State Park and up the Mountain from there you have High Falls. Oh yeah can't forget the eagle's and Deer around lake Guntersville, it is awesome. Some great River fishing just down the mountain to the right at South Sauty. Within An hour you have Russell Cave, Little River Canyon, Noccalula Falls, Griffin Falls, Little Rock City (famous rock Climbing!) Horse pens 40 (famous for its world class rock climbing) is only little of over an hour drive!

So if you're looking for a really awesome camping experience check out Buck's Pocket is located on the edge of Sand Mountain near Guntersville State Park. Come check it out, it is an awesome gift of nature!
