Renovated state parks showcase rural Alabama’s advantages

EUFAULA, Alabama — New additions and renovations are under way at several Alabama State Parks, which are showcasing the natural assets and quality-of-life advantages of rural counties.

At Lakepoint State Park in Barbour County, recent projects include an archery park and an off-road vehicle course.

Both developments, along with newly-renovated cabins, are gaining popularity among visitors, said Odell Banks, park superintendent at Lakepoint, which is located on Lake Eufaula.

Known as “The Bass Capital of the World,” the 45,000-acre lake attracts thousands of visitors to the park each year. The new projects are aimed at capitalizing on that traffic, and also at attracting a new kind of adventurer.
