The 1,080-acre Paul M. Grist State Park is an outdoor haven for many residents and visitors of Selma, Alabama. The main attraction of the park is the 100-acre lake which sits at its heart and provides visitors the opportunity to enjoy water activities such as paddling, fishing, and swimming. You can spend the day at one of the park’s many designated picnicking areas, complete with pavilions and barbecue grills, or go for a hike on the twenty miles of trails which lead out to the surrounding forest. You’re sure to see a wide variety of flora and fauna at the park, which is a featured site on the Alabama Black Belt Birding Trail - wildlife you may come across include Eastern wild turkeys, White-tailed deer, waterfowl, and much more. Other aspects include staying overnight in one of their modern campsites which can accommodate tents as well as RVs.
