Lake Lurleen State Park

Lake Lurleen State Park is a state park in Alabama. The park is located northwest of Northport, Alabama on U.S. Highway 82 in Tuscaloosa County. The state park has 1,675 acres and includes a 250-acre lake, 91 campsites, a nature center and nature trails. A multi-use trail is designed for both foot traffic and mountain bike riding. The park is open year around.

The park is named for the late Lurleen Burns Wallace, (September 19, 1926 – May 7, 1968) a former Governor of Alabama and wife of the late George C. Wallace, also a Governor of Alabama and presidential candidate. She remains the only female Governor in Alabama state history. The female Wallace was born in Tuscaloosa County, attended public schools there and met her future husband while working in a local department store. She succeeded her husband in office in 1967 because he could not run for a third concurrent term. She died in office a year later.
