Overview

Forkland Campground is located in a beautiful wooded area on the northern shore of Demopolis Lake, the largest lake on the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway.

Demopolis Lake offers 10,000 acres of water to explore and serves as a quiet and convenient retreat from the two nearby cities of Demopolis and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Natural Features:

Forkland Park is situated on a high point of land in a pine and hardwood mixed forest with plenty of shade. The Black Belt region of Alabama is a diverse area of dense conifer stands and rolling meadows that feature colorful wildflower displays. Wood ducks, bald eagles, blue birds and many other species of wildlife inhabit the lake area.

Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway consists of six lakes with a total length of 457 miles and 39,800 surface acres of water.

Recreation:

Fishing is the most popular activity on the waterway. Whether fishing by boat or along the bank of the park, anglers can find bass, crappie, bream, catfish and other species.

Day-use visitors and campers alike can enjoy a boat ramp and hiking trail at the campground, both of which are located across from the gatehouse. The trail has scenic overlooks of McConnico Creek and the Black Warrior River.

Facilities:

The campground is in a comfortable setting, with 42 campsites along the lakeshore. All sites come equipped with water hookups.

Families with children enjoy the state-of-the-art playground and the convenience of showers, picnic areas and laundry facilities. Large groups can reserve a picnic shelter for day use that can accommodate up to 50 people.
