MONTGOMERY-During this time of social distancing, our goal at Alabama State Parks is to continue providing you and your families with fun, educational, and inspiring programs! We may not be able to gather together in groups, but we will be using technology to bring the fun to you and present creative things you can do outdoors!

For all those nature lovers who are unable to visit one of the beautiful Alabama State Parks due to the COVID-19 precautionary measures, the State Park Naturalists will bring the parks to you via modern technology.

Please visit the individual Facebook pages at these five parks:
Oak Mountain State Park
Lake Guntersville State Park
Gulf State Park
DeSoto State Park
Cheaha State Park

These virtual programs will be an assortment of Live Facebook videos, short videos, photos, park stories, pictures, and maybe a challenge or two. Go to the Facebook pages for the five individual parks and look for the State Parks Naturalists’ content.

The State Parks Naturalists have also created a survey to determine what type of content best suits the viewers. Take the survey.

Of course, if you have one of Alabama’s wonderful State Parks nearby, we encourage visitors to take part in the many self-guided activities that provide social distancing, including camping, fishing, hiking, birding, biking and more.

Please visit for more information on the opportunities to explore our natural wonders as well as the precautions taken by Alabama State Parks to minimize the exposure for park visitors.
