The campground features 23 campsites with 13 of those being sewer hook-up sites, 4 of those being pull-through sites, and all of those providing water and electricity. Each of these sites features a 16′ x 60′ concrete camper pad, picnic table, fire pit, and grill. There are also 11 primitive campsites located within the interior of the campground and more are planned for the future. Backcountry sites are also planned for the future. A bathhouse, a separate ADA bathhouse, and a dump station are provided.

Bucks Pocket State Park is one of the most peaceful & tranquil places in Alabama. The park is a pocket of beauty atop Sand Mountain’s plateau. Known for the sweeping views of its rugged, seemingly untouched landscape provided from the heights of Point Rock.

Hiking Trails are plentiful in the park. With 15 miles of trails you will surely find a favorite. Maybe a short hike on the Indian House Trail to the rock overhangs used by the Indians for shelter, or a longer hike down to the lake for some awesome fishing on the Primitive Campground Trail; or up the mountain to the Point Rock Overlook where you could see a bald eagle flying and a spectacular view. All the trails hold a new adventure each time you visit.
