Little River Canyon National Park in Alabama

Little River flows for most of its length atop Lookout Mountain in northeast Alabama. The river and canyon systems are spectacular Appalachian Plateau landscapes any season of the year. Forested uplands, waterfalls, canyon rims and bluffs, stream riffles and pools, boulders, and sandstone cliffs offer settings for a variety of recreational activities.

Natural resources and cultural heritage come together to tell the story of the Preserve, a special place in the Southern Appalachians. Congress added the preserve to the national park system in 1992. Within the Preserve's boundaries in DeSoto State Park, a long established and popular vacation destination that offers a resort lodge and restaurant, rental cabins, campgrounds and even a pool and tennis courts managed by the Alabama state park system.

There are few visitor facilities within the Little River Canyon National Preserve though a visitor center is planned in the future. But camping is available at three designated primitive campsites during the summer months and the National Park Service has installed parking areas, overlooks, restrooms, and picnic areas at key locations.
