Meaher State Park is a gateway to the enormous Mobile-Tensaw Delta, a 20,000-acre reserve formed at the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers. The public recreation area is set on Mobile Bay and offers a unique chance to launch a kayak, explore scenic nature trails, or try your luck with a rod and reel. The park is an important habitat for local wildlife, with alligators often spotted soaking up the sun on the shoreline.
Planning a getaway to the Yellowhammer State? Book an RV in Baldwin County and you'll enjoy the freedom to explore Meaher State Park, as well as other nearby recreation areas, at your own pace. Spend the day relaxing by the beach or venture further afield to gems like the Alabama Gulf Coast and De Soto National Forest.
Water is the main draw for Meaher State Park campers, with a network of tidal rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous forming the lush delta. A wooden boardwalk winds through the park and makes it easy to explore the wetlands on foot. You can also enjoy lunch at the grassy picnic area overlooking the bay.
The Five Rivers Delta Resource Center also offers a fantastic introduction to the park and its unique ecosystem. Admire taxidermied animals in the natural history museum, watch educational films in the theater, and browse nature-themed souvenirs in the gift shop. Pontoon boat tours depart from the center and are a novel way to explore the delta. Watch for alligators basking on the shoreline and dragonflies flitting around the boat. The center also offers canoe and kayak rentals if you want to enjoy a leisurely paddle.
A boat ramp and T-shaped fishing pier make Meaher State Park a favorite with anglers. The delta is stocked with both fresh and saltwater fish – perfect for frying up back at your RV rental. Don't forget to pick up a valid Alabama fishing license before you cast a line.
Set among mature pines, the Meaher State Park Campground puts you just steps from the waterfront. Choose from 61 spacious RV campsites, all with 20, 30 or 50-amp electrical connections. You'll also enjoy water and sewer hookups. Most sites overlook Mobile Bay and treat campers to gorgeous views of the water. If you need extra space, there are also ten improved tent sites with water taps and 20-amp electrical connections. All sites come equipped with picnic tables and grills for enjoying your meals outdoors. After dinner, stroll down to the pier to enjoy the fiery sunsets. You're also located a short drive from lively seafood restaurants, oyster houses, and waterfront bars strung along Battleship Parkway and in Spanish Fort.
Each site is around 65 feet in length, making Meaher State Park a good option for larger rental RVs. Like most state park RV campgrounds, Meaher features modern bathroom facilities with flush toilets and hot showers. There are also laundry facilities if you want to freshen up clothes and sheets. The park fills up fast during the summer, so it's best to make reservations in advance. Pets are allowed at some sites; just be sure to keep your dog leashed and supervised. Good service from cell providers means you can stay connected while camping in an RV.
Meaher State Park lies within the city limits of Spanish Fort, which means you're a stone's throw from gas stations and grocery stores, as well as cafes, restaurants, and bars. Drive ten minutes west on the Battleship Parkway and you'll hit Mobile. The port city is a great place to rent a camper near Meaher State Park and kickstart an Alabama road trip. Mobile is also home to a bevy of unique attractions, including the mighty U.S.S. Alabama battleship, Mobile Museum of Art, and Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. If you're craving a break from your camp kitchen, splurge at one of the excellent seafood restaurants.
For a beach fix, head one hour south to Alabama’s sun-drenched Gulf Coast. Sugar-white sand and turquoise water await at laidback resort cities like Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. To the east, Pensacola is another popular base to start a Meaher State Park camping adventure. Top up your tan on the postcard-perfect beach, stroll around the historic downtown core and hit up the happy hours. If you'd like to see more of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, visit local wildlife management areas like W.L. Holland, where you could spot deer, hogs, waterfowl, and raccoons.
