Default Opp, AL - Frank Jackson State Park

Frank Jackson State Park at Opp, Alabama is not a large park but very nice. Most of the sites are waterfront and all have great views. Ammenities include full hookups with Cable TV and WiFi. It rained during most of our visit but we enjoyed the stay and want to return when the weather is better.

The Rangers say it is full every weekend. One nice thing about it Andy, they do not allow water skiing or personal watercraft on the lake. In other words, it's for fishing and peace and quiet. Good eye there Andy, you spotted the kayaks !! No, those were not ours. They belonged to a couple from Michigan. They were spending their winter in the south and had been at the park for several weeks. They said it was still too cold to return home.

Looks like my kind of place. Peace and quiet and fishing
Wish the SP's around here had cable and WiFi, for the rainy days.

They had very good cable Jeff, probably 60+ channels. One of the rangers said that all the parks in Alabama will have wifi before long. Everything is going wireless.
