As local legend goes, Buck's Pocket was where all the defeated public officials went to lick their wounds after an unsuccessful election. Whether or not this is true, this park is certainly the place to get some rest & relaxation.
Buck's Pocket, a 2,000-acre park in northeast Alabama is secluded in a natural pocket of the Appalachian Mountains chain. The park's picnic area offers a canyon rim natural vista into the pocket below. The pocket itself, on an upstream tributary of Lake Guntersville, hosts an improved campground, complete with tables, grills, shelters, laundry, comfort station, playground and picnic area, & hiking trails. The Park is located two miles north of Grove Oak in northeast Alabama.
