Big Bass Capital

Lakepoint Resort on Lake Eufaula Alabama. Big Bass Capital of the World!
Off Highway 431 -- You can grab this one on your way through Alabama to Florida vacation spots.

This is a beautiful state park, there are camping, picnic areas, group pavillions, fishing, boating, hiking trails, cottages, a restaurant.

Take the driveway into the resort, turn left and follow the road over the bridge. Turn left into the picnic area (there is a parking fee). If you get to the campground, you've gone to far.

Go to the back of the parking area and park near the turn-around. Walk the hiking trail that goes around the lake.

Cross over a rocky dirt "bridge". There are tons of deer in this park, look out for some on this trail.
Take the right fork in the trail.
We saw an alligator sunning in the lake here.
After the trail curves to the left, you'll pass several trees with hollows in their fronts.
Go about 15 or so more steps to a large root that crosses the trail.
Follow it to the right edge of the trail (towards the lake).
There is a tree 5 steps off the trail, it's splits into a Y at the top.
The box in in the back of this tree.

This trail loops back around to the start. We saw a family of turtles sitting on a log and so many kinds of birds. Enjoy the scenery and wildlife!
