Abstract

I spent a week at Meaher State Park, on Mobile Bay, east of Mobile, Alabama. It was a beautiful park, somewhat warmer than where I had been staying. I found no fossil collections to view, so this was mainly a rest stop on my tour.

Meaher State Park

This campground is located right at the top of Mobile Bay, between Mobile and Spanish Fort, Alabama. It is spacious and open, with well-spaced long-needle pine trees that provide a "just right" mixture of shade and sun. The piered bridge that carries I10 across the bay, mars the beauty ever so slightly, but it is easily ignored.

The camp sites are roomy and well separated. The sites right on the bay are all back-in. My site had a pull-through loop off the main entry road, but it was quite satisfactory. I had ample room to park my truck in front of the trailer.

There are plenty of opportunities to get good seafood in the neighborhood. I had a delicious lunch of grilled shrimp at Ed's Seafood Shed, just down the road.
