Meaher State Park-Spanish Fort, Alabama



We got on the road by 7:30am.  This was a long car day.  We probably pushed further than we should have with a baby in tow.  Our goal was to reach warmer nights, which meant putting distance between us and the cold north.  After a bit of research we settled on Mobile, Alabama as an extended stop.  We arrived at Meaher State Park about 7pm and it was already getting dark.  Learned the pop up can become a bed with a door.  This is how we spent our first night in Meaher.  Our site is number 1.  It is the closest to the bathrooms and the fishing pier.  The people have been exceedingly kind and accommodating. 

This was unlike any state park we had ever experienced.  It was comprised of the campground, three docks, and the Mobile Bay.  Approximately 80% of the campers were permanent with the remaining sites available for transient campers.  People visited for the view and the access to prime fishing.  Little did we know at the time this little community was a gem and we would miss and reminisce about our stay here for months to come.
