This two-year project will support the planning, design and implementation of 60 full-service campsites, including parking, bath house and utility infrastructure to Meaher State Park. In addition, six RV park model cabins will be installed along with appropriate skirting, decking, steps, and/or ramps. Meaher State Park is very popular and its campground frequently fills to capacity. These new amenities will provide the opportunity for Alabama’s citizens and guests to enjoy the abundant flora and fauna of the area, in addition to offering access to high-demand public outdoor recreation resources. All portions of the new amenities will be handicapped accessible and inclusive. These improvements will result in the restoration and revitalization of the Gulf economy by increasing public access to recreational resources and enhancing recreational experiences along a major east-west corridor heavily used by citizens and guests of Alabama. This activity is located in the Gulf Coast region and will be carried out in the City of Spanish Fort in Baldwin County.
