Little River Canyon National Preserve

Search Fort Payne 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. Backpack 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.
