Lakepoint Resort State Park Celebrates its Grand Opening Today
September 29, 2009
After almost two years of renovations, one of the most popular state parks in Alabama is looking better than ever. Today marks the grand opening of the new and improved Lakepoint Resort State Park in Eufaula, Ala. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) held a ribbon cutting ceremony today at the lodge entrance at 10 a.m
ADCNR Commissioner Barnett Lawley thinks the renovation was well worth the wait. “Lakepoint is a gem in the State Parks system that is important to the City of Eufaula and to the rest of the state as well because it serves as a unique destination spot for anglers, business conventions, and family functions,” Lawley said. “We are proud to be able to provide such a unique and beautiful facility to visitors from across the southeast.”
The showpiece of the park is the extensively renovated resort lodge and convention center. The improvements are immediately noticeable in the main lobby as you are greeted by a more contemporary interior design. The transformation of the lodge extends to the new Lakeside Terrace as well, which overlooks Lake Eufaula and is perfect for wedding receptions or other gatherings.
Each of the 101 lodge guestrooms have been upgraded and include exclusive photos of the Eufaula area by local photographer Todd Adams. In addition to the lodge improvements, 10 lakeside cottages offer some of the best accommodations in southeast Alabama. There are a total of 29 cabins in the park. Handicap-accessible cottages are available.
A new menu and expanded dining room enrich the Lakepoint dining experience as well. The Marina Grill also has a new outdoor patio that overlooks Lake Eufaula, and is open Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. – 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, 6:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
