Historic Blakeley State Park
This pristine 2,100-acre park preserves the sites of Alabama's largest Civil War battle; the important early Alabama town of Blakeley; and American Indian and colonial era settlements. Several miles of unspoiled Confederate and Union fortifications used during the Battle of Fort Blakeley on April 9, 1865, are on view. Visitors can walk the original streets of the ghost town of Blakeley. Over a dozen miles of walking, biking, and horseback riding trails showcase the beauty of the rich natural environment. The park is a stop on the Alabama Gulf Coastal Birding Trail and the Civil War Discovery Trail.
The park has RV and primitive camping facilities, as well as facilities available for rental. The park also offers boat tours exploring the rich biodiversity and cultural heritage of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta.
