Welcome to Alabama's Freshwater Coast

Imagine an outdoor playground where anything is possible. Where you can swim in more than 40,000 acres of crystal blue water, fish without a worry on your mind, and satisfy your daring side on water skis and wakeboards. With nearly 900 miles of beautiful shoreline and endless coves to discover, it is little wonder this place is considered the hidden jewel of Alabama.

But, your outdoor adventures won’t stop when you return to shore. The surrounding Russell Forest comprises 25,000 acres of lush hardwoods and pines, intermittent streams, native wildlife and more than 100 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
