Alabama is beautiful throughout the year but especially in the fall. As the greens of summer surrender to glittering yellow poplars, scarlet dogwoods, orange maples and golden hickories, Alabama unfolds its patchwork quilt of color.
In North Alabama the highlands transform into a bright sea of yellow poplars, scarlet dogwoods, orange maples, and golden hickories. Autumn-blooming wildflowers carpet the landscape around every corner.

In the DeSoto State Park area, a hint of color usually begins to appear in late September or early October and lasts well into November.  Historically peak Fall color is around the 3rd weekend of October into the 1st of November.
Fall is our busiest time of year, so be sure to make your reservations for our motel rooms, Log or Rustic cabins, Chalets, & Campsites well in advance. Come & visit us! Online Reservations
