Master plan at Oak Mountain
As part of our self-review we attempt to identify how we can better extend opportunities to the public. Because of this The Alabama Department of Conservation and the City of Pelham have decided to evaluate the original master plan for Oak Mountain State Park. We value your input and have created a survey for your feedback.
The National Geographic Society has developed a guide and website that features the Gulf Coast region. This Gulf Coast States Geotourism guide and website showcases the culture significance of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi. All of our 22 State Parks are featured on the interactive website at www.usgulfcoaststatesgeotourism.com and on their mobile App.
