The self-proclaimed “Treasure of the Tallapoosa” is an old mill town that is bisected by the Tallapoosa River. Located about halfway between Columbus, Georgia, and Montgomery, Alabama, this unique and charming community is jointly shared between Elmore and Tallapoosa Counties.
Before the colonization by the European settlers, Tallassee was the location of Tuckabatchee, the capital of the Creek Native American nation. The Creek people were known for their elegant effigy mound building and frequently clashed with the settlers encroaching upon their land. Between the Creek Wars, the Civil War, and the old abandoned mills that line the banks of the Tallapoosa River, it is hard to leave Tallassee without learning a thing or two about the region’s rich history. Although the small community of fewer than 5,000 people has a limited amount of things to do in town, Montgomery is only a half hour away and has much to offer.
Book an RV in Tallassee, Alabama and you can see the deep south of the United States, and meet its friendly people.
“The Heart of Dixie” lives up to its location and name by being an incredibly outdoors enthusiastic state. There is no shortage of recreational activities you can find or try outside, and the locals definitely enjoy being closer to nature.
Aside from the Talisi Riverwalk, there is not a whole lot of stuff to do within the city limits of Tallassee. However, you can take your Tallassee RV rental for a spin around the state (and even the south if you are feeling ambitious) and see the wonderful wilderness that is so prevalent in the southeastern United States. The Talisi Riverwalk is located along the Tallapoosa River and has a laid-back nature trail feel that is quiet and peaceful. You can bike, jog, walk, or skateboard along the boardwalk and observe the tranquil river running through town. The river walk is also great for fishing if you fancy and has bathrooms on site.
Both the Double Bridges Park and the Wind Creek State Park border Lake Martin and provide you with ample space and time to cool off in the soothing waters. Chimney Rock Island, in the middle of the lake, is a fun place to boat to and swim around as well.
While the state has no national parks to speak of, there are four glorious national forests that deserve mention, all equally suitable for visiting in your Tallassee camper rental. Bankhead National Forest is known as the “land of a thousand waterfalls” and is known for its many petroglyphs, prehistoric cave drawings, and primitive shelters from thousands of years ago. You can take a trip to Tuskegee National Forest when you rent an RV in Tallassee, and go mountain biking in the park’s many trails. Talladega National Forest is the largest in the state and encapsulates the southern terminus of the Appalachian Mountains. Taking your Tallassee motorhome rental is ideal because there are about 400,000 acres of pristine wilderness to enjoy on your vacation.
Tallassee is a small town and mostly keeps to itself, so tourist attractions can be hard to come by. Fortunately, the surrounding towns have many fascinating museums, landmarks, and interesting sights to see, so renting an RV in Tallassee is just as exciting as renting in a big city.
Tallassee history is definitely intertwined with the textile industry, and many mills thrived for over a hundred years on the banks of the Tallapoosa River. The Tallapoosa Cotton Mills have been abandoned since 2006, but until then were the longest continually run mills in the country. The ruins still stand and are a great place to have a photoshoot or see the gentle reclamation of the land by Mother Nature. Tallassee, strangely enough, was chosen to house the armory for the Confederacy during the Civil War after troops were withdrawn from Richmond, Virginia. The armory building still stands and remains the only surviving Confederate armory from the war.
In nearby Tuskegee, you can visit the George Washington Carver Museum, housed at the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site. The museum celebrates the life of Mr. Carver, the son of a slave who, despite his disadvantages, rose up to become a brilliant inventor and contributor to advances in agriculture and science.
Don’t worry. RV parks and campgrounds are quite prevalent in the area and in the state as a whole. Tallassee has a Walmart Supercenter as well so you can park there overnight while utilizing the store’s wide selection of food and camping supplies.
Whispering Springs Campground is a friendly place to hitch up your Tallassee rental camper for the night and have a nice campfire. The nearby Lake Martin is all you need in the summertime to beat the heat.
